If the numbers of people in the entire world affected by our corruption is considered a factor,

just read msgs. 17 and 23 by Koko in this thread. This, I think, is what he is trying to point out. The small nations wouldn't even be in the picture - the damage that they do is very limited.

This problem is really quite easily solved. See below:

They're: When it means "they are." The apostrophe stands for a letter not written.
Just like "he's" for "he is" ... etc. Go by the meaning.

There: Just remember that it means the opposite of "here," and add a "t" to "here."
Quite simple, isn't it?

Their: Is the remaining one that doesn't fit into either of the two above. And it is a
possessive adjective, just like our, your, his, its, my. Our dog, your cat, their

There isn't really any problem, is there?

Please sign petition telling the Senate to fix the filibuster:

I just signed a petition telling the Senate to fix the filibuster. I hope you do, too.

You can find out more information and easily sign the petition at the website below:


The Republican masses definitely don't get it. Their leaders have deliberately kept the Republican

name, so that the masses still think they are "voting Republican." They haven't the faintest
idea that a coup had taken place in the Republican Party beginning some 40 years ago, and
the present right-wing leaders want to keep it that way. Keep them ignorant.

Petition to Pres. Obama to have Paul Krugman as Treasury Sec'y. I think we need him badly!

Below is an email from the actor Danny Glover, who worked with the organization Just Foreign Policy to create a petition that's taking off on SignOn.org, the nonprofit site that allows anyone to start their own online petition. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here.

Urge President Obama to Nominate Paul Krugman for Treasury Secretary.

Sign the Petition!
Dear MoveOn member,
Press reports say President Obama will soon nominate a new Treasury Secretary. Press speculation has centered on candidates likely to support the Wall Street agenda of cuts to Social Security and Medicare benefits and other domestic spending rather than government policies to create jobs.

We want President Obama to nominate Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman, who opposes austerity and wants the government to focus on creating jobs.

That's why I created a petition on SignOn.org to President Barack Obama, which says:

We urge you to nominate Paul Krugman for Treasury Secretary. Krugman will protect Social Security and Medicare from benefit cuts, promote policies to create jobs, and help defeat the austerity dogma in Washington and around the world.

Please kick up the message when necessary so that many more will join in. Thanks.

Why have the Republicans tried to avoid offering an agenda of their own all these years?

Why do you think the Republicans have been "The Party of No" all these years?

Because the main right-wing corporate credo is to cheat, steal, and rob every last
red cent from middle-class Americans - by hook and bycrook. And this includes
stealing from their own Republican middle-classes, which they are only making use of
for their own benefit.

Now, they couldn't very well tell this truth, can they? Hence their lies, which are
for the most part meant to fool their own followers.

The Democratic leadership is wise to the above, and try to devise ways and means
to put a stop to the right-wing crooked business. And the main agenda the
right-wingers can offer is to say "No" to the Democratic agenda.

They have nothing to offer the American people. And if they told the truth about
what they really have in mind, they'd lose most of their own people who are now
supporting them.

If some form of democracy continues to exist in our country long enough, the so-called
present-day "Republicans" will only self-destruct in time. They deserve nothing else
As Abe Lincoln once said, "You can't fool all the people all the time."

I think it's bad enough that they've already been fooling too many people for so long.
What does this say about all those who have been, and are still being, fooled?
It makes me furious sometimes that so many of us are so incapable of seeing what is
in front of our noses. How could anyone be so mindlessly gullible -- and for so long!!!

Are they human beings, or merely robots going about in their programmed motions?!

I say there are too many Al Capones holding high positions in business corporations as
well as in government. Al Capones always see to it that the lion's share of profits will
flow into their own pockets. And to hell with the people. That's why our nation is in
the mess it is. We are being ruled by murderous gangsters.

"Fox News says women's nature is to be dominated by men" that's what right-wing extremists

think, hope, and pray for. Right-wingers, for their own benefit, just love to keep
people under their control - period. Their behavior shows this all over the place.
It's so obvious to everyone, except themselves

Pot-smoking is one of the things that can reduce sperm counts.

Did you notice the deep cut into the flesh right at the junction of the

right side-fin and the body? It's right near the joint and each movement
has to be awfully painful, until it heals. Hope it isn't infected.
