Hillary Clinton2

Hillary and Bill Clinton are incredibly wealthy people who move in the circles of the same wealthy and powerful who have inordinate control over our democracy and society, they are friends and peers with them…so is it most likely that if elected, she’s going to hammer her best friends to help “the others”?

Voting Booth

We are “responsible for the greatest trust ever confided to a political society.” (Patrick Henry) But as polling demonstrates the American Public has shirked its responsibility in failing to be the informed electorate that John Adams believed was the foundation of any democracy.

Warren Matthews

If you want to correct the error Matthews and so many other people have been making for years now, you will have to stop talking policy and start explaining strategy and the way our democracy functions.

GOP - Tantrum

Since it is Republican policy to do nothing for America and since Obama is doing something for America…which contradicts their policy, they are seeking to sue him. I believe the charge is “Driving Policy While Democrat…and Black”.

McDaniel warned that this is a war, and they will not “surrender”. He promised that they (conservatives) will eventually win control of the Republican party and the country. Paraphrasing what the late Maya Angelou once said “ when someone shows you who he is…believe him.”

Unfortunately, Republicans often ONLY focus on what’s happening at their own breakfast table, and seem to be incapable to concentrate on any kind of injustice, as soon as it’s their NEIGHBOR, rather than a family member, who’s suffering from it.

impeach Obama

The House can vote the articles. The Senate can hold a trial. No conviction but does that matter?

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?

priebus thumbs up

Priebus ecplained, “We enlisted the best Republican minds to create a new language that would better respect and represent those in our party. When that failed, we asked the Koch Brothers to pay $10 million to Frank Luntz who quickly turned out the framework for this new language we’ve come to call, ‘Benghazian’. “

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.

Just last November, pundits were saying that Obamacare’s troubled rollout doomed it to failure and Chris Christie was so nationally popular, he was the odds on favorite to win the GOP Presidential primary and perhaps the White House.

Putin’s game plan has been clear, using Russia’s renewed oil revenues and supplies to support and control those countries that undermine stability for the rest of the world to create a space for Russia to wedge itself back in as the most powerful and threatening force among nations.

anti-woman sufferage

From the party that brought you, “Shutdown at the Oh No Corral” comes a new, charm offensive…though they don’t understand the phrase too well (“So we need to be offensive in a charming way?”)
