Financial Meltdown: Math & The Myth Of Fiscal Responsibility

Friday, September 19th, 2008

While the details haven't been disclosed, it appears that the powers that be are considering a plan to bail out Wall Street...in a big way...on the backs of the American taxpayer. Troubling as this sounds, it may be the only viable solution. Regardless of the eventual solution, one thing is ...

Thought Of The Night? Taxes and Income

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

How come it's OK to let real wages for workers fall 3% this year under the GOP economy, but not OK to raise taxes on the rich 3%? Doesn't make sense to me. If the workers in this country can survive making less money why do rich people scream that it will be disasterous ...

Uber Cynicism: Wall Street Meltdown - Where’s George W. Bush?

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

Today, Chris Matthews is pushing an important meme in light of the ongoing financial meltdown. While Americans watch a free-fall that has resulted in a near double digit percentage drop in the stock market, Matthews is asking, "Where is George Bush and why hasn't he addressed the American people?" At first ...

Dow Plunges 500+ Points on Bank Failures, Sour Economy

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Gotta love the "Ownership Society" created by Bush and supported by McSame. Thanks to them, we now ALL own a piece of their failure, by way of taxpayer bail-outs. That's right folks...you own a piece of Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and before too much longer, probably a piece ...

Unintended Consequences: The McCain Strategy Flaw

Friday, September 12th, 2008

If you're going to foment a gender driven divide, or any other contrivance, in order to win votes, you have to realize that its effect can't be isolated within one party...and it isn't apt to resonate with those voters who haven't the time to participate in the pettiness of politics. ...

The Loaves And Fishes Election?

Monday, September 8th, 2008

If this election turns out to be about religious ideology...while ignoring the real implications of electing a candidate who supports the same policies of the president who created the troubled economy we're now enduring...it may well be appropriate to call this "The Loaves and Fishes Election"...although I doubt either will ...

Real Time With Bill Maher: 09/05/08

Saturday, September 6th, 2008

Bill Maher is my hero! Last nights show simply reminded me of that fact. While one could argue that his acerbic tongue alienates the religious right and those voters who might be persuadable, I've come to the conclusion that it may be the only way to fight a war with ...

The Palin Play: Pulpits…Puppets…Politics…Profits

Friday, September 5th, 2008

Quite frankly, the GOP's political parlance is the equivalent of being told that one can engage in a circle jerk with one's self. I think it is actually more akin to placing one's head up one's behind. Yes..it's still a circle...but the outcome isn't quite as pleasant. Look, I'll happily give ...

What Sarah Palin and the GOP Really Think About Women

Friday, September 5th, 2008

It's like Cranky said over here. Another reminder why this election is so important. And it's kind of sad we have to still be going down this road. After all, with record debts, a failing economy, energy concerns, environmental concerns, wars abroad and the whole lot of corruption and internal ...

The 21st Century GOP: Prettier On The Outside, Same Old Nasty Tricks Inside

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Gotta love the 21st century GOP- the party of monster debt, unlawful foreign agression, earth-hating, anti-science dunderheads and creators of the worst president in American history. When it comes to showing the world how NOT to govern and relate to each other, today's GOP truly is #1. But even being ...
