Who are your two senators in the U.S. Senate and are you proud of them or ashamed?

I have Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse, and they are pretty awesome. How about yours?

Barbara Boxer Delivers The Most Crushing Blow To The GOP Ever


Video of the nearly twenty minute speech at link.

“I thought they were the party of ‘family values.’ Show me where that’s true? Ripping families apart? I thought they were the party of ‘economic prosperity.’ Show me how that’s true, when we know from study after study that one of the greatest things we can do for our economy and job creation is get people out of the shadows so they can go buy a home and hold a good job. They (Republicans) can’t or won’t pass an immigration bill. They will not do their job. So when the president steps in and does his job, they say, ‘Oh, this is terrible! Let’s shutdown a totally unrelated department. The Department of Homeland Security.”


“So I say to my Republican friends. There’s s presidential race coming. Forget this last one. Get over it. Okay? Let’s work together. Listen, I served with five presidents. I’m a strong Democrat. Everyone will tell you that. But I respect the office of the presidency. If I didn’t agree with Ronald Reagan, I came down here and said it. But we had the respect back and forth. If we lost, we lost. And we moved on. And that worked both ways. I know what it is not to like the policies of a president. I get it. But don’t overdue it and make it so personal. Get on with it. Grow up. Do your job, you know? Do your job! Have respect for the office of the presidency. Don’t suddenly say executive orders are bad when the president you don’t like does it, but you don’t say one word when a Republican president does the same thing!“

Which Minority is Destroying America?

A message for all those useful idiots the rich use for their own interests. The rich want us to fight among ourselves about race, religion, and other stupid bullshit while they rob us blind.

America May Have Won World War II, But Fascism Won the War and Infected Our Country.

American Fascism is just far more clever than German Fascism. The Military Industrial Complex, Mega Corporations, Super Rich, and Intelligence Aparatus all work in unison as a secret government to keep control over our government (which is just for show to reinforce the fantasy of democracy) and us. Now we have an American Empire that serves the rich and makes war around the world under the pretense it is defending freedom, when all it is defending are corrupt assholes with too much money and a society that have crumbling infrastructure and denies its citizens rights far poorer countries extend to their citizens (health care, education, etc.).

A president without a diploma?


...Alan Flippen recently looked at recent history and noted that Walker, whether he wins or loses, would be the “first major candidate” to run for president without at least a Bachelor’s degree since then-Sen. Paul Simon (D-Ill.) in 1988.

If Walker gets the GOP nomination, he’d be the first major-party nominee to not have a college degree since then-Sen. Barry Goldwater’s (R-Ariz.) unsuccessful campaign in 1964.

And if Walker is elected to the White House, he’d be the first president without a degree since Harry Truman. (Truman is also the only president since the 19th century to serve as president without at least a Bachelor’s. Truman, of course, was elevated to the office after FDR died. The last time Americans elected a new president who didn’t have a degree? McKinley in 1896.)

Whether or not this is an important part of the campaign is largely up to voters – people will either care or they won’t...


FDR knew, because he won all four of them.

Our politicians could learn a great deal from FDR.

All they do today is exploit the fears of Americans and play us against each other and everyone else.
