Technical Question

When I open DU it always opens to this

trashing the above thread but it still opens to that page.

( I like the thread btw but....)

I would prefer when I open DU that it open to the Home Page
how do I correct this?

Thank you !

The Republican War on Everybody Else

The Republicans have been waging a war against liberals for at least the last forty years. They have demonized us, they have shamed us into silence, and they have spewed their hateful rhetoric to avoid discussions about real solutions to very real and pressing problems.

It's true. I am sick of the lack of real political discourse in this country. I am tired of being called a socialist or communist for my political views. I am troubled by the claims that my support for the gay/transgender communities is to go against the will of God. I find disturbing their fears of anyone who isn't white. I am very uncomfortable with their ability to marginalize the poor. I have a real problem with their claims that unfettered capitalism is the altar on which we all should worship. And I am furious because, we as liberals, have let conservatives marginalize us and our core beliefs.

My America is obviously not their America, and in another time or place that would have been okay, but today they want to shape America in their image. It would be an American in which the poor would have no voice, no opportunity to rise above circumstance to succeed. Their America would be a place where gun control would not exist and everyone would be allowed to have assault rifles. Their America would be an America in which women would have no access to family planning and abortion. Their America would be an America with no safe air and water, no safe food, no safe pharmaceutical drugs, or devices. Civil rights and labor laws would become a footnote in a history text and we all would lose the rights we previously took for granted.

They have slowly made us second class citizens because of our views. They resort to name-calling and talking points, because they are unable or unwilling to engage in thoughtful or meaningful discussion on the issues challenging this country. They are mouthpieces to their rich overlords and will say anything to keep their masters happy, and will leave the rest of us swinging in the wind.

In the Spirit of Their Nominee, Senate GOP Blocks Law Ending Tax Credits

Posted at 02:58 PM ET, 07/19/2012
‘Insourcing’ bill fails to advance in the Senate
By Ed O'Keefe

"The Senate failed to advance a bill Thursday that would end tax breaks for large companies that relocate jobs overseas and provide tax credits to firms that bring jobs back to the United States.

Senators voted 56 to 42 to proceed to final consideration of the Bring Jobs Home Act, falling short of the 60 votes necessary in order to proceed. The White House expressed strong support for the measure, which is packed with proposals from Senate Democrats facing reelection and eager to demonstrate efforts to shore up the nation’s struggling manufacturing sector.

The bill would eliminate tax deductions that companies may take when moving workers and equipment overseas, but establish a new 20 percent tax deduction for companies that do the reverse."

Charles Pierce: For Romney The Gloves Are OFF,and That's The Problem

For Romney, the Gloves Are Off, and That's the Problem
By Charles P. Pierce
at 10:38AM

There are, of course, a few problems here. The first one is that, when you start borrowing talking points — the president wasn't "vetted" in 2008 — from Princess Dumbass of the Northwoods, you're already running a few lengths below the intellectual Mendoza line. The second is logical; we already know far more about the president's relationship with both Tony Rezko and cocaine than we do about Willard Romney's relationship to the U.S. tax code for the years, say, 1999-2008. The third is strategic; if you have to remind people that you're preparing to get tough, you've pulled your own punch before throwing it. And the last one is perceptual; Willard Romney — and most of his surrogates — look utterly ridiculous in the role of political hatchetmen.
This is the new, tougher Willard Romney, who is so damned rugged that he's afraid of what the president's people might do with the information in his tax returns. This is the saloon brawler who won't shut up about all the mean things the president's "opposition research" might do to him. This is Willard Freaking Romney, for pity's sake, of whom an "adviser" warns the president:

Toledo Blade Editorial: Don't Complain----Explain

Don't complain -- Explain

Mr. Romney says he cannot be held responsible for a Bain-owned steel plant that went bankrupt in 2001, claiming he had no active operating role at Bain Capital after 1999. But the Boston Globe, citing corporate documents filed by Bain with the Securities and Exchange Commission, reported that Mr. Romney remained chief executive of the company through 2002.
