Class Warfare? I think not!

The average wage has not risen in over 30 years, while productivity has skyrocketed. The wealth generated by that increase in productivity has all been pocketed by the very rich. If that wealth were distributed as pay increases to workers, those workers would be able to spend that money on anything from household goods to college educations to investments, and the economy would be much more robust.

Romney the Shape Shifter

Obviously, the 2012 Mitt Romney platform plays to the conservatives to win the Republican nomination, while Mitt Romney's earlier platform played to the liberals in Massachusetts to try to unseat Senator Edward Kennedy. In fact, Mitt Romney's earlier platform was actually more liberal than Kennedy's liberal platform.  Here are but a few examples:

Don't Blame the Victim!

ABC News is reporting the following :  George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch crime captain who shot dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, originally told police in a written statement that Martin knocked him down with a punch to the nose, repeatedly slammed his head on the ground and tried to take his gun, a police source told ABC News.  Zimmerman had claimed he had called police about Martin, whom he found suspicious, then went back to his car when Martin attacked him, punching him.

Women's Issues Cause NY Republican Lawmaker to Support Obama

Questions about women and women's health have dominated the political debate over the past weeks, and at least one female Republican lawmaker is unhappy with her party’s record. New York Assemblyman Teresa Sayward (R), who is retiring after serving a decade in Albany, told the New York political program Capital Tonight that she does not support any of her party’s presidential candidates, because of their stances on women.

Stop the Hysteria Over the NDAA. Fact vs Fiction

There is a lot of hysteria coming from the far left ( I call them the "professional left" ) and libertarians over the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).  Led by the ACLU, they are calling it the “Indefinite Detention Bill.”.  The amendment about "indefinite detention" is only a small part of the Defense Dept budget bill.  And, those who are fear mongering about it are leaving out something very important.  The amendment clearly states:

Veteran's Day

On Veterans Day, it’s a time to give thanks. To pause and recognize the contributions of the more than 23 million veterans who served our nation.

Don't Just Read the Constitution

Ron Paul is always referencing the Constitution. Tea Party types and right wingers are always telling us to "read the Constitution." There is quite a difference between reading the words, and understanding the scope of the document written by our Founding Fathers.  

Traditional Republicanism and Obama (why we support him)

Today's Republican party, by way of the Tea Party, has strayed far from its traditional roots. We were the party of racial equality, rights for women, advocates of providing some basic civil rights to prisoners of war, adequate taxation, and believed in what Teddy Roosevelt called the 'square deal' where everyone sacrifices a little and gets a little and goes away at least somewhat satisfied.

Line In The Sand?

Is President Obama forcing the Republican Party to draw their line in the sand, or is he drawing his?? Possibly both!!

9/11 Ten Years Later.

None of us will ever forget where we were, or what we were doing on September 11, 2001.  Neither will we forget the shock and horror of that day, and the days and months that followed.
