Barack Obama told the world during a debate with John McCain, that if he had “actionable intelligence that Bin Laden was hiding in Pakistan and Musharraf (then President) was unwilling to do anything about it”, he would unilaterally take action to take Bin Laden out. “We will move Heaven and Earth to get him”, Obama continued. McCain ridiculed that position and made clear he would not take unitaleral action in another country to get Osama Bin Laden.
Where we are today, is that this next Tuesday, if Romney wins, the Plutocrats will have been granted a victory and a green light to begin to blunt the forward progress of regular people in America. They will have much reason to celebrate, because not only will they have bought eight years in power, but they will also have the ability to enact laws and appoint judges that will ensure their grasp on power for many more years to come. Their anger and the unprecedented amount of money they have contributed to defeat Barack Obama, is not for nothing, it is because the President’s policies and
Jack Kennedy was killed in part because of the perception, by the plutocrats and their zombies, that he identified too much with blacks, latinos and regular people, a kind of socialist in other words. His brother Bobby suffered the same fate. How dare they, those Kennedys, actually try to extend power to the masses, of any color. It of course was fine to say it on a campaign trail, but not to actually implement anything close. Jack in Dallas, Bobby in Los Angeles and Martin Luther King in Memphis. The Plutocrats worst nightmare, hence their anger, came in 2008 when a black man was elec
People with chingos (a lot) of money, no, probably not you and for sure not me, are the most fearful of people like Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela, who from the Government’s budget set aside lands in his Country so that those less fortunate would have not only homes, but a piece of dirt they could actually grow their own food from. It’s especially troubling to them because in a Democratic society, like theirs and ours, the less fortunate are the overwhelming majority and if allowed a vote per person, they could keep politicians in power that continue that agenda for a long time. The
Whichever television station you rely on for your political news, at least we know that currently you can get a “conservative” version, Fox News, and a “liberal” version, MSNBC. We put those two terms in quotes because it is easily arguable that how both stations report the news is neither conservative or liberal. Regardless of your perspective, at least currently you can check out the other station to see what the “other side” is saying. One thing that both stations have in common is that they are both owned by corporate behemoths.
What is this Republican fascination with imposing restrictions on what a woman can do with her vagina? It reminds me, off-the-cuff, of the Islamic world’s covering up of women, not letting them show their faces, get educated or much less show any skin in public, except it’s much worse. Republican legislatures around the Country want a woman to be penetrated by an ultra-sound wand, which looks much like a dildo, before they can make a decision to have an abortion. It’s the Salem witch hunts all over again and it’s sick.
Bexar County Sheriff Amadeo Ortiz protects the County’s residents quietly, but effectively it seems. A recent poll taken of Bexar County residents indicates that a solid majority feel safer in Bexar County since Ortiz took office. Many commented that they liked the Sheriff’s low key style and one commented that it was like the Truman analogy, “speak softly but carry a big stick”. Under Ortiz, high profile, very serious and complicated cases have been solved.
Logically, the more people of a Nation that vote, the closer that Nation gets to being a true democracy. The result of that vote would represent the voice of the majority of the people of that Nation. If the majority of people do not vote, perhaps because most people have to work harder and more hours just to make the same amount of money, which causes time to be a factor along with the lack of enthusiasm, then the Nation is being run by the few who do vote. Those few people who vote regularly are usually in the upper echelons of the economic ladder, and not only do they vote, but they u
