Full House and Senate worked into the night 24/7 to save Big Banks

Surely we remember the Bank Bailout

But now when clearly the Working Class will suffer the brunt of the damage brought on by their inaction, they resort to games and political posturing.

Does bring to light with blinding accuracy who the Real Masters of Washington are

Should only Corporations have Assault Weapons

As we enter into a new era of gun control in America I want all of us to ask ourselves this question

I truly believe a new Assault Weapons ban is all but guaranteed in the next session but as usual the devil will be in the details. I also truly believe the Founding Fathers wanted to guarantee the Rights of every citizen to bear arms given the abuses suffered by the people of Europe at the hands of the Land Barons

Do we really want an America where only the corporations can hire Security Contractors who posses Semi and Fully Automatic Assault Weapons - Think Blackwater Security during the Katrina Hurricane

Personally I don't even want Law Enforcement to have weapons the average citizen can not have - including drones

Twinkie CEO Admits Company Took Employees Pensions and Put It Toward Executive Pay

Twinkie CEO Admits Company Took Employees Pensions and Put It Toward Executive Pay..

Hostess company continues to screw over its workers.


December 11, 2012 |


Twinkie-maker Hostess continues to screw over its workers. The company is in the process of complete liquidation and 18,000 unionized workers are set to lose their jobs. More troubling – they could lose their pensions.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal , Hostess’ CEO, Gregory Rayburn, essentially admitted that his company stole employee pension money and put it toward CEO and senior executive pay (aka “operations”). While this isn't technically illegal, it's another sleazy theft by Hostess executives - who've paid themselves handsomely while running their company into the ground. Just last month, a judge agreed to let Hostess executives suck another $1.8 million out of the bankrupt company to pay bonuses to CEOs.

If there's no way to recover the money for the Hostess pension plans for workers, then the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. will have to foot the bill to make sure workers get at least some of the retirement money they paid in.

Hostess shows us clearly what Bain-style predatory capitalism is all about: big bucks for the very few rich executives, layoffs and poverty for the workers and their communities.

The Wealthy 1% give thanks to the Newtown shooter

Desperate people do desperate things

A Majority of Americans voted last month to move forward in America and ask the Wealthiest Americans to pay a little extra for life as we know it in these United States

Soon now as the Moneyed NRA through extensive propaganda transforms the Democratic party into the Loony Left out to take your guns. Working Americans will loose out once again as political capitol is spent and lost on both sides of the isle and a watered down gun control bill emerges at the cost of forsaking tax fairness and health care for all Americans

We will only propagate the root cause of horrific incidences like the one we had today in Newtown Conn. The working class will be asked to give up more once again. More families will have 2 working parents attempting to feed their children rather then giving them the care and nurturing they need at home and of course more deranged killers like the one we had today will emerge as a result.

And the Divisive Issue Machine continues to spin
