ballot-box

Referencing the suffrage movement in the 1920’s and civil rights supporters in the 1960’s, top Republican leaders are nearing a vote in the House of Representatives to pass a law that would give corporations the right of other citizens, to vote in elections.

In his slippery slope argument against the ACA, Justice Alito simply asks us to consider all the people who’ve been bankrupted and have lost their homes having to pay for their own sudden burial and the ongoing costs of remaining dead.

If the Court finds the mandate unconstitutional, will they find it severable from the rest of the law? If not, that would strike the whole ACA down. If so, can the ACA survive?

If you think the thinking and policies of the GOP are worse today than ever, imagine what bills Republicans in Congress might come up with in five or ten years.

Rick Perry Oops

There were so many worthy nominees deserving this PlanetPOV award for The Biggest Political F#%! Up of 2011, let’s just say that there are no winners, only losers and bigger losers.

The fraud of the Norquist no-taxes pledge has been publicly exploded now and as long as Dems don’t overlook this opportunity, the entire raison d’etre for the Republican Party will be invalidated in the minds of most Americans.

GOP sociopath

Some say corporations are people. What if political parties were people? Could the GOP be clinically diagnosed as a sociopath?

occupy wall street - Vegas

Thanks to Occupy Las Vegas, tourists caught a glimpse of “The Real Vegas”: the unemployed, the working poor, the struggling students, the struggling seniors. This is the side of Vegas that LVCVA would rather not advertise.

When the London (and other English cities)riots rampaged earlier this year, I read with droll amusement, the armchair activist quarterbacks’ wistful comments in Huffington Post and elsewhere, basking in admiration and awe of what they thought they were seeing. Viewed from a closer range … like here in the UK … […]

In their Class War against Americans, what the wealthy fail to understand is blowback. Once a democracy no longer serve its people, they stop looking to elections to solve their problems and take their destiny (and pitchforks and torches) into their own hands.

When I was growing up in a Democratic kitchen, my parents made the difference between Democrats and Republicans abundantly clear. Keep in mind that this was in the 1960s, and I was a small child, just starting school, when Kennedy was elected. Before I knew the real difference between Democrats […]

OK, it’s official. Elizabeth Warren is running for the Senate in Massachusetts. She’s challenging big, bad Scott Brown, who’s voted with the Democrats as much as he has his own side, and who used the Tea Party financing to get elected and then kicked them to the curb. True, he […]
