“…The point about solar energy is that there is so much of it that you only have to tap 5% of it at an efficiency as tiny as 1% and you already have energy over 5 times the whole world’s present consumption…what are we waiting for?” –Derek Abbott, Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Adelaide in Australia

Again we have another faux member of the Democratic coalition (Senator Joseph Lieberman, (I-Conn.)), today claiming Congress should not use budget reconciliation for universal healthcare reform. Well that is flat out BS perpetrated by Republicans and conservative Democrats who do not want to pass real universal healthcare reform.  The truth […]

I previously had thought only conservatives revised history to fit the memes of the modern day but it seems like progressives are playing that game as well. We have all heard the right wing revisions of history like FDR was not successful at ending the Great Depression when the truth […]

Blogs don’t make the evening news; angry mobs do. Is Krugman, like the WH, trying to motivate the “progressives” to take to the streets, and be SEEN as well as heard?

Despite complaints about his ego, filmmaking style and his overexposure in the 2004 elections, Michael Moore remains the most effective, progressive and influential filmmaker out there.

We can do this. We can rebuild our Congress. We have the technology, we can rebuild it, and it won’t cost $6 million dollars. This will be our revolution; 21st century style patriotism. The web will be our battleground, and we will win.

Big Pharma is probably the most important branch of manufacturers that provide healthcare products to the healthcare industry.  Along with universal healthcare reform we need meaningful pharmaceutical company reform.  Drug companies are not worthless middlemen like private healthcare insurance companies that are inherently part of the problem because they provide […]

We’ve seen this same segment of the population before that is currently spewing hatred at the town hall meetings on health care. They were the same ones foaming at the mouth about the government at tea bag parties. The same ones screaming “Terrorist!” and “Kill him!” in reference to Obama […]

Well when Huffy first announced it’s creation of an “investigative team” I wondered what it would entail.  It looks like we now know.  They stalk the halls of the White House and talk to as many administration officials as possible to obtain anonymously quotes.  Then the most controversial statement they […]

Profits are a reward for taking risks. How can it be that a company makes a 30% margin being the gate keeper between you and your doctor? Why should a hospital chain make a 30% margin delivering health care? How is that moral?   There is no risk in those businesses. […]

When you take a long shower or relaxing bath, consider that future generations may look back at the freedom to use as much water as one wants as unbelievable. As a result of global warming, drought conditions have intensified all around the world. In the U.S., the west, southeast and […]
