Right Wing trolls bash pizza parlor

Right Wing trolls bash pizza parlor

    Right Wing Trolls Trash A Small Business — For Welcoming Obama September 11th, 2012 10:40 pm Henry Decker Scott Van Duzer, the Florida restauranteur who lifted President Obama off the ground in a bear hug when Obama visited his pizzeria on Sunday, thought that he was just creating a lighthearted photo-op. Unfortunately, Van Duzer underestimated how rabidly the right-wing fringe hates the president. Republicans have organized a boycott of Big Apple Pizza because ... Full Story

Growing into liberalism

Growing into liberalism

By Stephanie Rayburn     Growing into political maturity I grew up Republican. My whole family is Republican. I grew up around my grandparents hearing slurs like "liberal idiots" and "lazy welfare recipients" even at the same time that they demonstrated how to give generously to those who need it. I listened to Rush Limbaugh -- admired him even because I was young and impressionable and I didn't yet know about how adults twist the truth for their personal benefit ... Full Story

Romney’s theory of the “taker class”

Romney’s theory of the “taker class”

Romney’s theory of the “taker class,” and why it matters Posted by Ezra Kline There will be plenty said about the politics of Romney’s remarks. But I want to take a moment and talk about the larger argument behind them, because this vision of a society divided between “makers” and “takers” is core to the Republican nominee’s policy agenda. In his comments, Romney says that “these are people who pay no income tax,” but they are people “who are dependent upon ... Full Story

Obama’s Way

Obama’s Way

Michael Lewis's article in Vanity Fair is a must read. Lewis was given unprecedented to the president and presents a picture not often seen of a sitting president. From his basketball games to deciding to intervene in Libya, Lewis gives insight into the mind of our president. This is an incredible article giving a glimpse of what it takes to be president and the humbleness and humanity of the man who now occupies this office..           Obama's ... Full Story

A Republican Dance of Treason?

                    By John Reed (about the author) When America elected her first African American President in 2008, millions across the world wept over the promise made by his election about the possibility for individual achievement in a democratic republic founded upon the ideal that all men are created equal and endowed with certain unalienable rights.   America, that most backward and racial of ...

Obama not a Sociaist

Obama not a Sociaist

            Is Obama a Socialist? By Tom Head, About.com Guide   Answer: Not by any definition of the term that mainstream socialists would consider acceptable. It's true that both the Bush and Obama administrations introduced government subsidies in industries that the government has not historically subsidized to the same extent, but this is not, strictly speaking, a socialist move because it does nothing to concentrate ...

Is President Obama a big spender?

Is President Obama a big spender?

The answer is a big yes and no. As Mark Twain said, “Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.” It is not exactly a case of “lying,” but rather a case of putting a spin on what the numbers mean. The two articles from Forbes Magazine presented below are excellent examples.     In “ Who Is The Smallest Government Spender Since Eisenhower?”  a May, 2012 article, Rick Ungar makes the case that it is Barack Obama. He includes a graph that shows the annualized growth ... Full Story

RNC, the good, the bad, the bizarre

RNC, the good, the bad, the bizarre

  The 2012 Republican National Convention was a bizarre combination of misleading and deceptive speeches, poorly scripted and produced media, and a wholly ineffective public relations campaign around Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate for President who doesn’t really seem to have too many people on the American right-wing excited. As Newt Gingrich said, he doesn’t PARTICULARLY dislike Mitt Romney. This seems to be true of many Republicans, who certainly prefer President Obama ... Full Story

Tax cuts and Jobs: GOP illusions

Tax cuts and Jobs: GOP illusions

      To the Editor,   Democrats and Republicans propose vastly different ways of creating jobs in this economy.  President Obama would do so by hiring private contractors to repair and upgrade our aging infrastructure.  He believes that enabling people to work and spend and pay taxes will increase demand for goods and services, create more jobs, and raise revenues to apply to our debt.  Also, this will provide efficient, reliable infrastructure to help ...

What price jobs, Romney wants peons

What price jobs, Romney wants peons

    To the Editor,     Improvements in information technology have made it easy and profitable for American corporations to shift jobs overseas to the emerging (BRIC) countries . Our two major candidates for President have very different approaches to increasing jobs here. Both approaches will create jobs, but the jobs will be quite different. ROMNEY: Bring American salaries and benefits down to a level competitive with those in the BRIC countries. ... Full Story
