Yes, our "leaders" are bought and paid for...

The Repubs give money to the rich and wealthy

The Dems they say are bought, too.

The SCOTUS passed Citizens United - now the Koch brothers are trying to buy the country
This is like cornering the market - the WHOLE market!

The SCOTUS votes 4 to the left and 4 to the right
The only guy doing his job decides all the cases.
These people are supposed to judge based on the law of the land
but only one of them does.

What happened to any oversight or the ethics committee?
Why don't the DAs for the states write a statement and try to step in?
I guess they are paid for, too.

So, there you have it

The only thing to do is to vote so hard that there will be no guestion that Obama is reelected

This is the most angry I've been over the unfairness of our elected officials
and their lack of respect for the people of the United States!

There needs to be a law that says that no adoption of a law nor

any change to an existing law nor redistricting of voting districts can be made until there is
an objective analysis done to show that there is no ill intent prejudice any particular group
or groups for any political advantage.

I'm sick and tired of seeing laws get enacted that make things worse just because
a bunch of lying manipulative morons comes up with a bright idea to tip the scales.

Why does our government allow this stuff to continue?

He'll give to the wealthy - Here's what he's said...

He said that we should let the forclosure process play itself out and have the rich buy up the homes and rent them to the people who lost them.

He said, businesses are people - We've seen middle class salaries drop over the past 30 years and the wealthy gain income by over 400%.

He continues to misinterpret Pres Obama's statement that the wealthy have benefited from the workers and now the Repukes have their convention slogan - We Built It

If the middle class continues to stagnate they will not have the income to aford homes or retire and the businesses of the wealthy will fail because we are the ones who buy their products. The wealthy are killing the golden goose by starving it to death and they are too stupid to see what they are doing (except Buffett and a few others).

They are a greedy bunch who will cause the country to fail!!

edit for spelling

The repubs bet it all on one number and they're gonna lose...

Plus, loook at all the things they have piled up
that people are not ready to support:

Woman's rights
Reducing people's ability to vote
Threaten medicare
Threaten social security
Continue to shift money to the wealthy
Say they'll deregulate business when it's obvious
that business has no loyalty and is only focused
on earning as much as possible
Lying, manipulating and creating propaganda in order
to confuse the voting public (didn't Tokyo Rose go
to prison for doing the same thing?)
Manipulating ballot counts
Allowing Citizens United

Who can possibly vote for these cheats?
They have no ethics!

And why isn't the judiciary branch putting safeguards in place
to guarantee a clean election?
Why don't they take ads that misrepresent off the air?

Why can elected officials spend two years doing nothing
for the American people and still get paid $180K?

Without a doubt - VOTE THEM OUT!!

Need rebalance of corporate philosophy

We were told that there are 4 stakeholders in the corporation
1) the business
2) the stockholder
3) the employee
4) the community

Since 1985 the focus has switched to the sales dollars that benefit the corporate hierarchy and the stockholder AND now, even the community holds a higher place than the employee. The employee is seen as anecessary evil in order to produce.

There needs to be a rebalancing of the importance.
1) the stockholder needs to be paid but the business leaders needn't inflate their expectations.
2) the corporation needs to have money put back into research and development to create new products for future profit.
3) the employees (which includes the workers and the leadership) need to get a reward from the corporate profits. Since the reward is calculated in percentage of salary, the larged the salary the greater the increase but not at rates seen in the past for corporate honchos.
4) the community gets returns from charities, taxes from income, etc.

The worker has been beated down to the point where there is little of no discretionary income and the recovery is suffering.

Let's get the "stupid" out and start to rebuild America!!

Agree - and another thought

If we can't reason with our own religious conservatives

how do we hope to reason with the religious conservatives of another country?

I think that any one who talks about religous writings as fact
is lost in a fantacy land to begin with.

Have you ever tried to reason with a schizophrenic?
It just doesn't work.
I think someone needs to study how to breaks thru their la-la logic
before we can get anywhere....

So then, the Shiite militants are stoners?

Kind of like the irony in the repubs being the religious side but also,
the one's who believe in wars, power and the domination of the weak.

Kind of Zen, I guess.

Now, now people. This was just meant to initiate discussion....


You were tricked by one of my subtle attempts at humor....

I agree - there is proof

So people say that an American citizen is entitled to due process.

The problem is he/she is in a foreign country.

There is proof they are working with terrorist factions.
If they are hanging around with terrorists then....
they are either an undercover news reporter
or they are a terrorist.

The OP says, "without even charging them with a crime, notifying them of the accusations, or affording them an opportunity to respond"

Now anyobne who grew up in the 60's and did dope, knows
when they are under surveliance, knows when things are getting hot and knows that they are hanging around with people who
will raise the suspicion that you are doing something against the law.

Here is a guy who has his picture on TV in the U.S. and is
hiding out with AQ sympathizers. I don't think the guy has
any doubt that the U.S./CIA is gunning for his ass. If he is
falsely accused then don't you think he would write a letter
and say that he is being falsely accused.

Alternatively, if you saw a freinds picture on TV saying he was
a big terrorist wouldn't you call someone and say they were making a mistake?

I really don't think that the CIA is going to go around and assasinate someone just because of a personal grudge.

My apologies to the constitutionalists in the room but I think
we need to draw a line and separate American citizens from terrorists. IMHO

We have laws against discrimination

but a state legislature will propose a discrimanatory bill

the governor will sign it into law


there is no one who will declair it discriminatory and
take it off the books

So, states can openly discriminate and nothing happens to them?

The DA of each state should be able to declair any new law
discriminatory and stop it from becoming law. Where's the protection for the people?

We've taught people to fear communism.

If people had looked at his assumptions instead of an all-or-nothing package we may not be in the trouble we are in today.

I believe that greed will cause every type of government to fail.

For the past 35 years I have been told why my salary has not increased (even to keep up with the cost of living).

Now, we are seeing that our own congress has been making laws in order to funnel the wealth to the upper class.

Marx had some very sound advice.
