Really, you’re still undecided?

Really, you’re still undecided?

  Here are some things to think about, if you’re still thinking about whom to elect president. One of Mr. Romney’s criticisms about the President is the loss of certain “green” businesses that the administration backed. Of those receiving funds, about 8 percent went into bankruptcy. “The Wall Street Journal, aiming for a comprehensive assessment, examined 77 businesses Bain invested in while Mr. Romney led the firm from its 1984 start until early 1999, to see how they fared ...

Fascist America: Are We There Yet?

Fascist America: Are We There Yet?

The barrage of anti-Obama ads fueled by corporate money should leave no doubt that Corporate America is trying to take over the democracy. They are using classic Nazi Fascist tactics as outlined in Mein Kampf. The classic disinformation campaign consisting of lies, the bigger the better, is a classic tactic espoused by Adolph Hitler. (Quote, "Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.") It is apparent that the Republican Party and ... Full Story

Republican Hang-up on Sex

Republican Hang-up on Sex

              The Republican Hang-Up On Sex And Abortion By Michael Roberts (about the author) I'm not going to repeat the recent stupid and backward pronouncements by zany Republicans on the subject of sex, rape and abortion. Nor am I going to dignify the asinine comments by a set of   white guys in the Republican Party who see rape as "no big deal" and that if it is inevitable then the woman should "lie down and enjoy it." And ... Full Story

Rape is Rape

Rape is Rape

The Naked Truth About Rape By Mary Pitt (about the author) Recently there have been many political candidates, (all middle-aged men), making excuses and expounding their reasons for opposing abortions, even in the case of rape. Not mentioned in conjunction with these subjects, they also espouse the closing of Planned Parenthood and outlawing contraceptives, both for which they look forward to the possibility of voting... These men need some education and are apparently incapable of ... Full Story

America cowering

America cowering

              A Nation Armed to the Teeth but Living in Fear by: Dave Lindorff A new study by researchers at the University of Illinois in Urbana, showing that young children who are fearful in childhood are likely to be conservative when they grow up got me to thinking. It’s not just that a whole generation of kids who get regularly belted by their parents, who are warned that if they behave in a certain manner they’ll ... Full Story

Republicans: Party of Rape

Republicans: Party of Rape

  There has been a great deal of comment among Republicans on the subject of rape. See the accompanying articles. In all these comments, the onus seems to be put upon the woman. It is almost as if these Republican men blame the women for getting raped. Never have we heard them talk about the rapist. The obvious conclusion is that Republicans condon rape for the rapist (man) but not the victim (woman). On the other side of the Republican coin, is the attitude that sex is a sin ... Full Story

Washington Needs to Lead. Now

Washington Needs to Lead. Now

              By Lee H. Hamilton       A few weeks ago, I had a conversation with a group of prominent business leaders that I’m still mulling over. We were talking about the intersection between business and government, and they were pretty unhappy. The chief target of their displeasure wasn’t any of the usual suspects, though. Instead of lambasting taxes or regulations, they were most worried about ... Full Story

Gardner: More Republican lies

Gardner: More Republican lies

In a press release to the editor (following) Cory Gardner uses an old technique to twist the truth, nay, even lie. He introduces as truth something which is not true or is only his opinion. Introducing such a statement is called using a “strawman.” After making the statement, in this case that the Obama administration discriminates against oil and gas, he then uses the statement to attack the administration. This seems to be a tactic of the current crop of Republicans. Since they do not ... Full Story

Leadership in the White House

Leadership in the White House

In my own career in the military and a degree in personnel management, I have been able to observe people in positions of authority. I have been able to ascertain that there is a big difference between managers and leaders. I have observed many competent managers but real leaders are few and far between. Leaders engender trust and loyalty because in addition to managing, they take care of their people. A reading of the D-Day invasion and landing at Omaha beach will illustrate this point. ...

The truth about jobs

The truth about jobs

      Obama vs. Romney: Jobs By Bob Burnett Jobs and the economy remain Americans' number one concern. While Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have promised to create millions of jobs if they are elected President, there are stark differences between their plans. In the first presidential debate, Romney promised , "If I'm president I will create... 12 million new jobs," the equivalent of 250,000 jobs per month for 48 months. The Washington Post "Factchecker" ... Full Story
