Why the war on the poor

Why the war on the poor

Two articles from the Huffington post on the inequalities of wealth and income and the hypocrisy of the financial elite. CEO Council Demands Cuts To Poor, Elderly While Reaping Billions In Government Contracts, Tax Breaks     By Christina Wilkie and Ryan Grimm      WASHINGTON -- The corporate CEOs who have made a high-profile foray into deficit negotiations have themselves been substantially responsible for the size of the deficit they now want closed.

Impeachment?

    Impeach the President Over the Recent U.S. Deaths in Middle-East! By Martin Lewis This is a monstrous scandal. The biggest since Watergate. Brave Americans murdered this fall in the Middle-East and our so-called president has no answers about why it happened! Of course the fact that it happened as the president was obviously focused on running for a second term couldn't have had anything to do with it! And the White House has admitted that the news of the deadly ... Full Story

Civil Discourse and The Clash of Ideas

Civil Discourse and The Clash of Ideas

      By Lee H. Hamilton     The election of 2012 has called attention to how difficult it is for Americans to talk reasonably with one another about public policy challenges. Our civic dialogue — how we sort through issues and reason with one another — is too often lamentable. We live in a politically divided country. Congress, which ought to serve as the forum where politicians of diverse views find common ground, is instead riven by ... Full Story

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

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

Something Biden said

  In My Image By Warren Isleib Something Biden said during the debate with Ryan stuck; I couldn’t shake it. One of the last questions referenced religious belief and views on abortion. Biden indicated that he believed abortion wrong, but could not impose his beliefs on others. After much review and consideration I can say his words sum up the basic difference between modern political philosophies. Forget the economic details, liberal or conservative thinking, or party ...

Religious Conviction

Religious Conviction

  I’ve been avoiding this subject publicly. There are many who refuse to accept any responsibility to their maker, and many more that were not properly introduced. Some have been lured in to corrupted versions of reality. The rest of us are still learning. I write to the majority of Americans called Christians. We share the original Biblical source of information and direction. I’m not going to reference specific scripture here; you look it up.   There is great concern with ... Full Story

Moyers, no speech for the poor

Moyers, no speech for the poor

          Bill Moyers Essay: The Cowardly Lions of ‘Free Speech’ July 6, 2012 Bill opens this week’s show by explaining how last week’s Supreme Court decision not to reconsider Citizens United exposes the hoax that Citizens United was ever about “free” speech. In reality, Bill says, it’s about carpet bombing elections “with all the tonnage your rich paymasters want to buy.” See It Here
