11. Or reject any cuts in SS and Medicare? Or hold bankers accountable?

Or get corporate money out of our electoral system?

Or rein in the drug wars?

Or reject the pipeline and drilling and sale of the Gulf of Mexico?

Or stop the new massive free trade agreement?

Or stop the warrantless surveillance of all Americans and the militarization of our police departments?

Or stop the corporatization of our schools?

Or stop indefinite detention and the "kill lists" and claiming the right to murder American citizens without due process?

Anything about these major policies? Anything about reversing the corporatization of our government and the flood of lobbyists in Washington? Anything about the fact that virtually the entire "recovery" has gone to the top one percent, and that CEO pay continues to outstrip employee pay by obscene measures unseen in any other developed country? Any mention of the poverty numbers in this country and that one out of five of our children and seniors now live in poverty, and over a million of our schoolchildren are now homeless?

Any SERIOUS plans to address what was done to us and return what was stolen to the American people? Any plans to change the things listed above, which will continue and escalate the same devastating trajectory?

No, we are supposed to cheer about a proposal for nine dollars per hour.

Welcome to the second term.

I am a bit confused, does woo have a problem with my response...haven't heard from him/her. Let me know who I should be answering to. Or do I have to answer to the "several of you who loves what woo says." Or maybe you want me to respond to the

I don't think it really deserves a response. The discussion would likely degrade into further insults.

I also agree with everything in Woo's post. It certainly addresses the actual current state of our union.

You seem to think any criticism of the administration is wrong. I disagree.

62. I agree with Woo to a point, but she left out Climate Change

without leadership and immediate, serious action there, everything else becomes moot, imo.

As to Woo needing to get a life or get out, really that is 1. a personal attack and 2. laughable that someone unable to bear reading something he/she doesn't agree with would write such a thing. Really, if you can't take Woo's heat, you get out of the kitchen. You can always choose to ignore his/her posts if they get to you so much.

In the meantime, the election is over. While during the election season, I could understand and agree with the ban on criticizing our candidate, the time for blind support is over, and the time for legitimate, constructive criticism is open.

We won; we need now to get on with it and we need to keep our focus on the fundamental problems we face. President Obama told us he needs us to "make him" do things. We cannot "make him" do anything if we do not make clear what we want and need done. And if he didn't express those things in the State of the Union, that signals it's time for feedback.

That was perfectly said. None of these major issues will be addressed, until the people cry out loudly enough to force a response.

You're right; I should have mentioned climate change directly instead of just listing the energy policies. It is important to make all of this explicit and to be talking about it relentlessly.

Now is the time.

Thank you very much for this post. You said what needed to be said much better than I did.

I heard that one. POTUS clearly stated a desire to get us off oil. Perhaps his way of rejecting the Pipeline is to encourage the development of other resources thereby rendering it obsolete. Maybe his way of negating the free trade agreement are the hubs of technological development he talked about.

This President seems to give the opposing team new shoes but provides his team with stilts. If only they were bright enough to put them on.

52. But woo me

it is far more important to see Gabby clap. It is far more important that he told heart-warming stories about heros. It is far more important that Tim Cook sat with the First Lady, and Obama gave Apple a PR moment. After all, Apple is only going to assemble (not manufacture) a few computers (which is no longer its main focus anyway!) in Northern Cal.

The actual real shit that needs discussing and solutions found for are nothing compared to that.

But hey look, Obama proposed a raising of the minimum wage which will barely offset the rising cost of food, gas, and health insurance for those who need it. I am certain all of those recent graduates defaulting on their excessive student loan debt will be grateful as well as they sling burgers with their doctorates in computer science. I mean we need all of those new H1B visas to cover the dearth of STEM jobs so let's give them to foreigners instead of Americans.

Yay team!

63. ...

Yes, it's called learning. There are people here who have not yet seen the light on free trade....people here who have not yet seen the light on energy....because the propaganda is very, very good in every separate area.

That is very different from changing your position just because of who is President.

It is why I keep posting about propaganda and the overall picture of what is being done to this country. Putting the WHOLE list of outrages together, because then you see the patterns of privatization and profit-making and corporatization, no matter the issue....The corporatists get away with so much of what they are doing, because each issue is propagandized separately, and people miss the overall picture. We are sold. We are bought and sold, and they are figuring out ways to profit from every single area of our lives.

That is why it is so, so important to expose the whole picture, and why I have such great respect for those who keep doing it, despite the insults and the constant drumbeat of propaganda and disparagement. Because it really does matter....


Here is a post I wrote to madfloridian in 2011:

woo me with science Donating Member (1000+ posts)

24. So many good people leaving...and so unnecessary for DU to do this to itself.

Madfloridian, I owe you a big "thank you" for teaching me a great deal and helping me to open my eyes and expand my thinking in the area of education. I came here a longtime, steadfast liberal in most areas, but still naively convinced of the good intentions of the charter school movement and stubbornly defensive of the pro-testing arguments about accountability and progress. Thank you for all the links and data and resources and personal insights you have posted over the years to illustrate what our education policies are really doing to children and teachers. I cannot believe I failed for so long to see the parallels between what is happening to education and the corporate takeovers that are happening in so many other areas all over this country.

Keep up the good work, because you are educating even when you are speaking to groups of people who should already clearly understand.

Thanks again, and I will look for you on the other sites.

I had you on ignore for some time due to getting some impatient / condescending responses from you to posts I made re: test over-kill. This was a while back. I recognized your intelligence, but you came at me with a response mired in the pro-testing corporatist propaganda and rolled your eyes when I, as a 20 year veteran teacher, tried to present my side which can best be summed up by the Einstein quote, “Not everything that counts can be counted and not everything that can be counted counts.”

I agree with a lot of what you say and your voice here is appreciated. I am glad that MF got you to see the predicament public education is in thanks to obfuscation and greed.

I'm like WTF did he really say "if you want to vote no, that's your choice."?? That made them out to be trivial and unimportant.

76. Fringe complaints

Fringe leftist purity trolls the President. Color me shocked.

> Get corporate money out of our electoral system?
No, that was the SoTU two years ago when he took the Supreme Court directly to task before the nation for violating 100 years of precedent in Citizens United. Because of that, some of the the GOP nutcases (Scalia, Thomas) on the court no longer even show up.

> Rein in the drug wars?
It's not a "war". Second, that's too out of step with mainstream thinking (although mainstream thinking is changing, slowly)

> Reject the pipeline and drilling and sale of the Gulf of Mexico?
Because Americans don't need jobs or anything. Energy independence is overwhelmingly popular.

> Stop the new massive free trade agreement?
Because Americans don't need jobs or anything.

> Stop the warrantless surveillance of all Americans and the militarization of our police departments?
Although I cheer Senator Wyden's efforts, this is not a topic for the SoTU. Besides, Chinese hackers and Anonymous seem to be far more mischievous in this regard. I've never heard of a single person with standing to complain about anything from U.S. intelligence agencies. As far as "militarization of our (local county) police departments", should he mention dog-catchers too?

> Stop the corporatization of our schools?
Um, you do know that "corporatization" is not a word, right? Also, last time I checked, they are still called public schools, staffed by public employees.

> Or stop indefinite detention and the "kill lists" and claiming the right to murder American citizens without due process?
U.S. citizens openly plotting to kill Americans get all the privileges that were accorded to the U.S. Confederate citizens in the civil war who were doing the same. These are called "acts of war" not "murder".

> Anything about these major policies?

No, because half the time you're wrong. And the other half when you are right, the President knows that to change people's minds, you need to nudge them slowly. Coming off like a leftist version of Glenn Beck is counterproductive. It may be able to garner a handful of fringe votes from an utterly non-representative website like D.U., but it wouldn't actually fix anything.

Go back to worshiping at the altar of Ralph Nader, woo. Just let the rest of us never forget that people like you gave us GWB.

This thread really shows what happens when you try to question the President on anything. His most fervent supporters swarm and attack at every turn, usually in pretty nasty ways. This is the kind of shit that makes DU look like DLC.com rather than Democratic UNDERGROUND. Undergrounds usually aren't meant to kowtow to the mainstream talking point brigade as we are here and as so many in this thread choose to do so dutifully.

Also, they OWN this place now. They team up in jury duties to protect themselves when they go name calling and such. Exactly what happened with the posts above. Sickening.

3. Sigh....unless he walks on water, some will never be pleased.

Nor will they understand, Your President, My President, Our President! Absolutely an incredible speech!

K&R!

Thanks, steve!

38. I know. It's the constant negativity, the constant twisting of words, achievements, events...

... even here, where one would hope to gain some refuge from the BS.

Unfortunately, I missed seeing the speech live because I had to take my dog to a training class, and that is a must-do for this beastie.

However I cannot imagine, somehow, that POTUS announced the demise of SS or Medicare or any such thing.

I'm off to check whitehouse.gov to see if I can watch the vid.

48. You will find the Vid!

Yup. The negativity can be overwhelming...and I am so very new here.

However, I plan to stay and fight.

We can always go meet at the BOG. I also make daily visits to The Obama Diary. It is a great place to get cleansed!

4. I can't remember a speech

That made me tear up. When he talked about the Heros present sitting there in Congress, like the 100 year old woman who stood in line, or the Nurse who brought the babies out from the hospital in NYC, it just made me cry. Wow..what a speech.

13. Great speech!

And yeah; from the nurse who brought the babies out from the NYC hospital story, on out, I was tearing up/crying. Great speech.

On the sh*t-head side of things, I could *hardly believe that the rethugs were sitting there, arms crossed like lil bratty kids even when the President mentioned raising the minimum wage. Even simple things to make lower-wage Americans more prosperous are met with childish disdain by the rethug brats.

10. I just feel wistful knowing many of his proposals are going to hit the HOR roadblock.

 

The Republicans in Congress would rather watch the US crumble than do anything. It's pretty sad.

80. I saw him staring at John Kerry, looking like he was going to burst out in tears...

I imagined he was whining to himself:

Why can't I be a real man like John Kerry? *Sob.*

But he looked more angry than sad... Obviously, he didn't want to be there.

24. Someone should tell the GOP women

All that frowning and scowling makes you look very old and shows a dark soul.

Just thought someone should tell them!
