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
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
It’s come a long way, gay marriage, with even the Vice-President of the United States saying on “Meet the Press” this past Sunday, that he “is absolutely comfortable” with gay marriage and believes they should have the same rights as all married couples. The Secretary of Education for Obama also said he supports gay marriage, on the “Morning Joe” show this morning. This graduates the official U.S. stance to that of most advanced, western nations and to a point that simply faces reality and attempts to end another form of discrimination.
When I first considered voting for him, I thought “but will he make the right-wing squirm? Yes”. A brother in the White House? Oh yeah there was a definite squirm factor, maybe even more than another Clinton in the White House squirm factor. Then I thought, “oh shit, soul food on the White House menu, Motown playing throughout the ‘House’, picks in the bathroom and lotion everywhere. If I was thinking this, so was Dick Cheney, but whereas as I was giddy, he was throwing up and getting closer to that pumper giving up. Not that I wanted that, that would be too easy.
There is nothing more important to the U.S.A. than the education of its kids, nothing, except maybe national security. There is also nothing more important to those kids than getting educated, because it is a fact that the unemployment rate for those with degrees is half of those without and that the salaries of those with degrees is double of those without. Getting back on track getting our youth educated allows us to compete with other Countries who have overtaken the U.S. in the past few years, which is important to the U.S.
There are many who have short picks about who Mitt Romney, whose coronation as the Presidential Nominee from day one hit a few bumps, but is all but done now, will pick as his running mate, however we think we know who it will be. We think it will be Marco Rubio, the Cuban/American Senator from Florida. During all the debates that the Republicans had this past fall, it was obvious they were going to take a hit on the Latino vote, what with one of the candidates saying we needed an electric fence on the border and all of them supporting Arizona’s and other States’ laws that would criminali
