NYTimes editorial board is delusional. The R's have never supported the middle class...


The Republican-dominated Senate in Wisconsin passed a bill this week to weaken the state’s private-sector unions. Similar to “right-to-work” laws in 24 other states, the bill would prevent unions from requiring dues or other fees from workers they represent in collective bargaining, a crippling constraint

They want to bust all unions and cut all workers wages to the way they were 100 years ago.

But, But if you give benefits and pay a decent wage your profits suffer...

ACLU Files Suit Against debtors Prisons & collection fees


The American Civil Liberties Union today filed a federal lawsuit challenging debt collection practices that have resulted in the jailing of people simply because they are poor. The case was brought on behalf of Kevin Thompson, a black teenager in DeKalb County, Georgia, who was jailed because he could not afford to pay court fines and probation company fees stemming from a traffic ticket.

Because everything is a crime in modern day A'murika.

Don't let your children watch!

Like Rand Paul indicated we all know people that game the system especially elected R's

Sen. Sean Nienowm (R), 46, and his wife, Cynthia, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2014 and the case was officially closed in October, reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. The couple claimed in court filings that they owed $930,000 to creditors, but had only $122,000 in assets. The couple had twice mortgaged their home.

The Nienows secured a small-business loan in 2009 to buy National Camp Association Inc., a now-defunct guidance and referral service with the mission of helping families find camps for children, among other things.

They stopped making payments in 2010 and the federal government sued last year. A $748,000 judgment was entered against the Nienows and none of the debt was paid.

This guy's only income today is his State Senate pay, but if he should have an accident, heart attack or stroke I'm sure he will game the system to collect disability that he has paid into all his working life. Just sayin...

General Petraeus and I

Thirty years ago I was Stationed in Europe as a member of the US Army. I was called into a closed door classified meeting that no one was to talk about. When I got home my wife asked me when was I going to Turkey and for how long. Now I can't tell any one what was said in that meeting for another twenty years, but my wife can. A'murica where everything is a crime.
