    Electing Reality This November

    America has to wake up from this nightmare where evil people are praised as “good people” and the real victim of a sexual attack is the male perpetrator. It’s time to dispel this cloud of lies we’re living in with an overpowering blast of reality…and the 2018 election results can do that.

    Note to Media: You Can't Win T

    The Trump Twitter scheme is a rigged con game from a con man. We can’t win at it because the game is keeping the media and people chasing intentional lies each day, to control their behavior and their topics of discussion.

A math problem. Q: Take 70% of Americans wanting a Public Option and subtract from that 48% of The Senate not supporting it. What is left over? A: Democracy. As it turns out, The Founders made a bit of a mistake with the structure of our government. The concept of […]

Huffing and Posting

UPDATE: Arianna remains so envious and angry, she has written ANOTHER article attacking the Balloon Boy coverage for stealing attention from her attention-getting fabricated story. What is disgusting about this new article is her using the issue of needy children to hide her spite behind. This article launches a new […]

Hi all! Well, the tension seems to be mounting. This is the point in a movie where the music starts to get quicker, more dramatic. We feel like we are getting close to some sort of climax. Something is going to happen! WE’RE ON THE EDGE OF OUR SEATS, READY […]

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Oct - 15 - 2009 3 Comments

Of course you will not see these headlines on most progressive blogs because it does not fit into the outrage, no change and doom and gloom memes but the House Financial Services Committee voted today to start regulating the types of derivatives that lead to the financial collapse. These new […]

The white house was right earlier this week the blog world is ridicuous headed by Arianna Huffington. Arianna’s latest article is a testiment to how insane utter hyperbole has gone in the blog world.  She says VP Biden should resign because Obama may not go with his recommendations on Afghanistan.  […]

Insurance Lobby Promotes Public Option

Posted by AdLib On Oct - 12 - 2009 2 Comments

Yes, you read that right, the insurance industry has come out strong to promote the need of a public option. They announced in a report today that the Baucus bill, which doesn’t have a true public option, would force them to raise premiums on families by $4,000 a year. So…the […]

The End of Democracy Will Be Televised

Posted by AdLib On Oct - 8 - 2009 24 Comments

There was a discussion on a news show yesterday, the commentators hosting a pair of talking heads on the topic of Pres. Obama’s having a big problem on the economy. They debated about the big problem being that he doesn’t have “big ideas” to address the economy. In the face […]

A Suggested Public Option Compromise

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Oct - 7 - 2009 9 Comments

First let me unequivocally say I would prefer single payer over all and a robust public option for the entire country at least. However the one public option compromise I think I can live with was reported by Sam Stein today.  Some Senate Democrats are suggesting that they would add […]

Afghanistan not Vietnam but not Iraq Either

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Oct - 5 - 2009 7 Comments

The comparisons of the Afghan War to Vietnam are pure hyperbole. The list of reasons are numerous but when you compare the total cost in human life lost in both wars there is simply no comparison. I think it’s incredibly disingenuous and disrespectful to compare the two wars considering what […]

Just Regulate Stupid!

One of the misconceptions in the healthcare debate is that single payer is the only way to keep healthcare costs down.  Countries like the Netherlands and Japan keep healthcare costs much lower than ours and have much better quality healthcare than ours with mostly private systems. All our legislature needs […]

I have had the misfortune to have caught what appears to be the Swine Flu. Not only do I appear to have all the symptoms but my lungs seem to be filled with bacon fat. This has resulted in my being stranded on the couch for days watching far too […]

The Real Vast Right Wing Conspiracy

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Sep - 30 - 2009 6 Comments

According to end timers who quote many mythical (religious) references the world is suppose to end 2012. This is one of the reason many right wing end time believers think President Obama is the anti-Christ. To be fair it seems like every president since Nixon has been dubbed as the […]

Is America a Conservative Failure by Design?

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Sep - 28 - 2009 8 Comments

Probably the thing that has surprised me most after the election of President Obama is how large swaths of this country simply cannot accept the tenants of our representative democracy.  Instead a large minority continue to demonize and mischaracterize the very progressive policies that people voted for even though conservative […]
