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
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
Hoover presided over the Nation’s Great Depression, Nixon was a criminal who burglarized the Watergate building and who also expanded the Vietnam War, Ford pardoned him and bit into a tamale, shuck and all, W stole an election, lied to the American people about Saddam’s involvement in 9/11 to start a war and presided over the Nation’s second Depression. Their idol, Ronald Reagan, granted amnesty to immigrants, something none of the others would ever do again, including Mitt Romney, whose business experience is in “Vulture Capitalism”, perfecting the art of gutting and bankrupting companies
This past weekend the nations of France and Greece tossed out Presidents who were supporting so-called “austerity” measures, belt-tightening budget cuts that were primarily going to hurt students, the elderly and blue-collar workers. Sound familiar? That is the gist of the Paul Ryan plan that Willard “Mitt” Romney endorses. These countries are democracies and the budget cuts proposed went after the 99% of the population, but were perceived as leaving the rich alone, without asking them to also feel the pain of cutbacks.
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
With the Michigan Republican Primary coming up in just days, Willard “Mitt” Romney, claims to be a “son” of Detroit and with “cars in his blood”, the latter even though as a young man and while hiding in Paris from the Vietnam War draft, he was apparently in a serious car accident that kept him from cars for quite some time
For those of us that study politics day in and day out, listen to both Fox News and MSNBC just in case we missed something or something was left off, accidentally or purposely, the Republican Primary thus far has had just about all political lessons or experiences occur during it, which normally do not all occur in the same election cycle. In the end it appears that the Massachusetts Governor, who began with about twenty-four percent of Republicans behind him and even now polls about the same, is poised to become the Republican nominee, barring a Rick Santorum surge that can survive the Ro
