Medicare_and_Medicaid_GDP_Chart

We can scream about republican recalcitrance, but when we had power (albeit brief), we spent it developing policies that favored the 1% and submarined any efforts to punish those who robbed the bottom 99% percent of their lifesavings. We created the stimulus which was trickle-down lite.

These pictures are random from my “game camera”. I set it in a couple places around my house. I get many critters that show up.

SCOTUS’ Hobby Lobby decision hurt but there is a far more dangerous threat working its way through the courts that could kill most subsidies.

Scotus - Hobby Lobby protest

Speaking of Christian values, whatever happened to bearing false witness? Hobby Lobby set up shop in a state where they’d have to pay for employee healthcare including emergency contraception.

SCOTUS - Hobby Lobby

This is as close to a declaration of a Zombie Apocalypse we have gotten from this Supreme Court to date. It is The Night of the Living Religious Corporation…they’re alive! And they have more rights than the actual people who work for them! Get the canned food and the shotgun, they’re coming to your neighborhood next!

The warming we’ve seen is setting feedback loops that guarantee higher levels of warming. The melting of the Siberian permafrost means thousands of gigatons of methane (more damaging as greenhouse effect than carbon dioxide) released into the atmosphere.

Industrial waste discharges into the Cuyahoga River, 1973.

In June 1969, 45 years ago this month, the Cuyahoga River caught fire. It wasn’t the first time for this industrialized waterway, but on this occasion the fire garnered the attention of the nation, and at a time when environmental degradation was a burning [sic] issue.

Throughout American history, Republicans have always stood for supporting the goals they speak up for…then attacking any Democrats who accomplish them!

HP Divorce

Not only has HP now refused to dance with the one who brought them to the party, they are jumping into Mark Zuckerberg’s Ferrari and waving back at their community with a champagne glass in hand as they speed away.

Leading MMT thinkers and authors insist often and loudly that they are simply trying to describe how money and thereby the economy, government and the private sector work. Whether a capitalist, socialist, communist, or any other -ist, everyone should want to know how the system they exist in operates.

What we need today is Electric cars that have batteries that can hold a charge longer and be recharged by a solar array. It needs to be inexpensive to buy so we can get more of them on the road and fewer of the internal combustion engines.

At a time in our nation’s history when our Supreme Court has chosen the wealthy to dominate our politics and the press has mostly abandoned their duty to empower the public with truth, how can the people find their way back to a true and responsive democracy?

ADLIB: If I said 2 plus 2 equals 4, isn’t that the only correct answer?

CRUZ: I can list the names of a number of Republican economists who would disagree with you.

This man, Tom Steyer is a very wealthy man who will back Democrats against the Keystone XLPipeline. So who will benefit from the Keystone Pipeline? Who will be hurt? First, the rich oil corporations and the very wealthy will benefit. Second, the middle class, working poor, and poor will be hurt. Farmers, ranchers, homeowners, and small businesses will also be hurt.

Thought “The Death Panel” was a right wing hoax? Nope. The SCOTUS became a real death panel, allowing states to refuse expanding Medicaid to let the uninsured working poor die from medical neglect. The ongoing deaths of thousands of Americans will now be a dark legacy of The Roberts Court.

Parker from central Idaho aims his weapon from a bridge as protesters gather by the Bureau of Land Management's base camp near Bunkerville

It is hard to decide what is more horrible, that a major news network would rally for a mass shooting of law enforcement officers and citizens or that Right Wingers were literally giddy at the opportunity to “begin the revolution” by wanting to kill police in order to steal land and violate laws.
