The Hubble Telescope Deep Field surveys into the previously thought darkness of space opened our eyes to how expansive our universe really is. If the following video does not humble you and help you understand what a limited place we take up in the grand scheme of the universe nothing […]

“…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

The GAO released a long awaited report on CIA abuse of prisoners during the Bush years. It documents many things we know and many things we did not. “CIA report: ‘Inhumane’ tactics used on detainees WASHINGTON – CIA interrogators threatened to kill the children of one detainee at the height […]

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 […]

Revisionist History: Two Can Play at that Game

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Aug - 21 - 2009 6 Comments

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 […]

Did Krugman nail it? Or was he hammering US?

Posted by tyler-durden On Aug - 21 - 2009 14 Comments

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. Expect the MSM to attack Moore for the hypocrisy and corruption spotlighted in this film, as they did with Sicko and Fahrenheit 911. There […]

Republican insanity and naked lust for power…with a beat! As disgusting as the right wing claims and frothing at the mouth is, it is even more ridiculous when sung. Check it out!

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.

This weekend President Obama and the Kathleen Sebelius underestimated the public’s passion for the public option not only with progressives but with the mainstream public.  It was simply a major blunder even if they were just trying to launch a trial balloon. This miscalculation may have come off the heels […]

Posted by KQµårk 死神 On Aug - 14 - 2009 1 Comment

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 […]

One overlooked aspect of our disastrous healthcare system is the inherent lack of healthcare security which is a major destabilizing element in millions of Americans lives.  Healthcare insecurity is not just the obvious concern of over 47,000,000 Americans, to the contrary Americans with healthcare insurance, especially the under insured often […]

The Epidemic of Racism

Posted by AdLib On Aug - 11 - 2009 9 Comments

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 […]
