The Proud Worker

These days, just who is the ‘proud worker’?  In a lousy economy it’s a challenge for nearly all workers to maintain their optimism…except for this dingbat.… [Read more]

Six Weeks of GOP Debates

Last night’s debate among Republican presidential candidates was the fifth debate in six weeks.  My summary:

  • *Yawn*
  • Herman Cain still hasn’t walked away from the very idea that an electric fence to keep out undocumented immigrants may present significant problems — like electrocuting people.
  • *Yawn*
  • Rick Perry answered what he felt like answering, rather than the questions Anderson Cooper, the debate’s moderator, asked him.

Yes, the ‘Occupiers’ DO Know What They Want…

The media often portrays the Occupy Wall Street movement as one with no coherent message. Of course, as with nearly everything else, we should all consider the source — especially since mainstream media gave up on real reporting and resorted to talking heads bleating their corporate overlords’ opinions, cast as ‘research’ and ‘investigative journalism’, ages ago.… [Read more]

The Big Sweep – Occupy Wall Street Is Staying Put

Along with its famous landmarks, skyscrapers and large population, New York City had a reputation for decades as a dangerous and filthy city.  With much hard work over the years, the city has significantly decreased its crime levels and made itself look much more attractive.  Clearly, other matters are at the forefront of the city’s agenda but, as much cleanliness matters, using it as an excuse to bring in police to suppress a protest and evict protestors is a rather transparent move. [Read more]

Send In The Clowns…

Poor Charlie Rose…he’s known for his ability to skillfully conduct interviews and gather important information from public figures. I can’t begin to imagine what thoughts were swirling around his brain as he moderated the GOP presidential debate last night. Perhaps something like this?:

Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Agreed to have a battle;

For Tweedledum said Tweedledee

Had spoiled his nice new rattle.[Read more]

WHERE are the JOBS, Speaker Boehner?

It’s a good thing my blood pressure is at a healthy level… Watching the news, particularly when I see the loathsome faces of the obstructionists also known as the GOP, would be enough for me to bust a major artery makes me wonder just when the interests of the people of the U.S. are going to be placed above dumb-arse politics.  [Read more]

Is THIS The Best We’ve Got?

Really?  Oh, and by the way, I’m not talking about Republican presidential candidates Herman Cain (Oh Lawdhamercy), Mitt Romney (YAWN!), Rick Perry (WTLF?!?) and Michelle Bachmann (DUH!).  I’m talking about the people who currently hold seats in the US Senate and the people they deem worthy of listening to…like Alan Greenspan a.k.a., the fiscal grim reaper.… [Read more]

He Said NO!

So…it seems the big headline of the day is that New Jersey’s governor, Chris Christie, has stated AGAIN that he is not going to broaden the pool of current GOP candidates by running for President.

DUH!!!

What is it with the mainstream media in this country ok, I KNOW that there are too many things to list![Read more]

The Occupation of Wall Street – and Starting A Movement of ‘The 99%’

I’m loving Occupy Wall Street.  It is described as a people-powered movement for people who want to express discontent for the current political and economic environment and I really don’t care what this movement is called as long as I see a little democracy in action, something we don’t get to see when all of the economic pain is shared and the profits are privatised.… [Read more]
