Bizarro Superman GOP

“Me know women get less pay for same job but speaking for all women as man, what feel worse to women is everyone knowing it. So me decree, on behalf of women, no one talk about it anymore.” Problem solved!

GOP Shop

Job Fair

Last chance....

If you don’t know me, I’m a bit of a student of economics, though “Student” may be stretching it. What I am intensely interested in is the overarching “whole” of how things work together to form the civilization that surrounds us.

Obama sotu

It is likely that Pres. Obama may make raising the minimum wage a top priority since it would have a direct impact on aiding those with the lowest incomes (and reducing the cost to the government and taxpayers for subsidizing those low wages of greedy corporations) and make for a better economy.

Happy New Year Obama 2014

If you could offer one resolution to President Obama that he could commit to in the upcoming year, what would it be? And just for fun, what predictions would you make for 2014?

As is our tradition at PlanetPOV, we celebrate Christmas with our version of a well known carol…well known before we got our hands on it, that is. This year’s carol is the kid classic, “Nuttin’ For Christmas”.

we are worth more

What if there was one vote that could be held, one campaign that could be focused on to pass one law that if passed, could help with many of our most serious problems? There is…

Boehner- Headless Horseman1

To celebrate this festive holiday of people trying to scare others into giving them something sweet that they have, we can’t help but dedicate this holiday to our favorite blood suckers and zombies, the GOP.

Governing based on hatred and spite is not sustainable in a democracy…especially when that hatred is aimed at the majority of voters.

Boehner - End is Near

Just as Republicans insisted that the 2012 polls were all wrong and Mitt Romney would win by a landslide, Republicans today are blindly and overwhelmingly confident that the Democrats and Obama will bend to their will and the country will see them as heroes…and they’ll be just as right as they were on Romney.

Boehner may be counting on the pressure from the public and the business community to push his party back from the edge but he is now standing with the extremists in his party like a battered wife.
