First, props to SueInCa for her brilliant article,  The Next Credit Bust – 2012? which inspired me to post this as a kind of companion article. For those who have expressed interest in GROW and/or focusing on addressing the SCOTUS decision giving corporations unlimited expenditures in elections, a bill is […]

You know how you can “smell” rain when it’s about to fall? It is completely premature but I can “feel” history coming on Sunday. Oddly, that doesn’t diminish how anxious I am for it to be tomorrow at 2 pm EST. In the meantime, here is a remarkable speech Pres. […]

Unlike healthcare reform where I have spent many hours researching the issue, I know very little about the substance of financial reform.  My gut says it would be better to have an independent agency for Consumer Financial Protection but some make an argument that a financial protection agency would be […]

What is the difference between an arsonist and Sen. Jim Bunning? Most arsonists never pitched in major league baseball. The last 3 years have been a primer on how broken the system is in Washington. The Dems took over Congress in 2006 promising an end to Iraq and accountability and […]

This morning the office of Senator Evan Bayh, D-IN, announced that he will not run for re-election this November. There’s more than one way to react to this news. Since Bayh is a Democrat, the gut reaction might be to fear that we’re going to lose another seat — like […]

According to the Whispering Reid, The Reid that blows in the wind…or the Reid that just simply blows, Sen. Reid will block the efforts by Dem Senators to reform the filibuster. You see, this human tribute to invertebrates everywhere wants to make sure that the tyranny of democracy will never […]

We need to start a movement, a splinter group from the Democratic Party. I am not talking about “media” or “profits” but am talking about starting a movement that somehow forms and takes off. Heck, I think we’ll even get folks that consider themselves Teabaggers, because not all Teabaggers are […]

Tonight, Bill Moyers had a marvelous episode which I can’t recommend enough. The first segment was about the SCOTUS decision and the impact on our democracy. http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/02052010/watch.html With pro and con voices. http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/02052010/watch2.html The second segment I found the most intriguing, with a doctor who had been working for single […]

This morning I happened upon an article dated January 21st, 2010 from the East Valley Tribune about a meeting of religious leaders regarding immigration. The Arizona Interfaith Network is hosting the event, which will begin with a prayer service, followed by a press conference and panel discussion. The intent is […]

In an unprecedented way President Obama has taken on the GOP face to face. The best part is it was caught on camera. Obama schooled the GOP calling out their nihilist political strategy and ridiculous rhetoric on issues from the stimulus to healthcare reform. So much for the carrots Obama […]
