Of Course it’s Class Warfare Republicans

December 16, 2011

Republicans hate it when someone says the words class warfare. This from the most vacant Republican lawmaker I’ve seen in years, Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. “Class warfare … may make for really good politics, but it makes for rotten economics,” … “If you tax something more, you get less of it,” Ryan said. “If...

My father is I believe is 77 or 78 years old today. I could be slightly off, I’m sure he will let me know. He lost his mother a few years ago, my grandmother who I called MeMaw. Reports are that I coined the phrase MeMaw because I couldn’t say grandma. Some say I...

Ron Paul is Constitutionally Challenged

December 14, 2011

Ron Paul

I have enjoyed the Republican race to get clobbered by Obama. It makes the contestants say the dumbest things. So far Texas congressman Ron Paul has avoided that. He has a devoted legion of followers despite his racist comments from the 90′s as I pointed out here. However, yesterday in New Hampshire he said...

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is reporting that the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act will increase the deficit by 166 billion in 2012. Here’s my thought, so what, I don’t care. And here’s why I don’t care. Why doesn’t the CBO do a study on how much we could reduce the...

Bernie Sanders

I may be a couple of days late on this story, but I believe it is vitally important. Democratic Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has called out the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s about time someone did. This is a court controlled by conservative members who have no problem cavorting with rich people and corporations who...

Where are the Serious GOP Candidates Part 3, 4, or 5

December 9, 2011
By
Newt

I have posted previously about the lack of serious GOP presidential candidates and quite frankly I’ve grown tired of it. I would normally point you to my previous posts on the subject, but it just seems pointless. That’s the reason behind the title of the post. Where are the serious GOP candidates for president,...

The Consumer Financial Protection Agency was created in 2008 after the economic meltdown caused by greedy wall street insiders. It prohibits complex disclosure forms, simplifies credit cards, oversees payday loans, gift cards, overdraft agreements and other products. Simply, it protects consumers. That’s why it’s called the Consumer Financial Protection Agency. But Republicans don’t like...

What is Wrong with Rick Perry

December 7, 2011
By
Rick Perry

Perry attacks Obama on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and Christmas. His comments are ludicrous and reflect more on the fact that he is behind in the polls rather than Obama’s policy. Here’s what Perry said. “I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a Christian,” the Texas governor says. “But you don’t need to be...

The Jerk

Donald Trump is a jerk and like most jerks he doesn’t realize it. What makes him believe he has any qualifications to moderate a presidential debate. He is a failed businessman, a failed husband, and a failed presidential candidate. Donald Trump is not a person, he is a brand. A brand that appears to...
