Republicans Still Show No Concern For The Poor.

After watching CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley, I came away feeling that I have to write an obituary for America! Candy's guests were quite succinct and more than convicted in their veiled disgust and nonchalant lack of concern for the poor of America. They keep bandying about words like 'entitlements, Spending cuts and deficit reduction' without batting an eye, as to the destruction to the poor that they are proposing.

First of Candy's guests was outgoing senator Olympia Snow. She was all too eager to project that republicans really care and want to keep tax rates from going up on anyone, but insists that any fiscal cliff deal has to include some plan for reducing entitlements. That would be all well and good except it's obvious she thinks Americans are too stupid to realize that entitlement cuts really mean cutting programs for the poor that they need to live, feed their kids and stay healthy.

Next up was CNN Correspondent Dana Bash who reported something really shocking. She said that Republicans refused to go along with Democrat's suggestion, that some of the extra income that will be raised with the new tax rates can be used to pay down the debt. Republicans insisted that debt reduction must be done instead by entitlement cuts thereby ensuring that any pain and suffering to pay down the debt and curb spending is placed squarely on the bleeding backs of America's poor. 

Next up was Senator for Wyoming John Barrasso who commented that infrastructure spending was off the negotiation table as it is just another way of running up the debt, suggesting that we should first grow the economy... by following the Republicans' mantra of cutting spending by entitlement reforms. Notice how republicans say that having infrastructure programs is 'spending' on infrastructure, instead of it being 'investing' in those programs and creating jobs which will grow the economy...something that was done after WWII. 

Of course when a major bridge falls in their area or they are stricken in some way by natural disasters they do not say that their pleas for help requires government spending, instead they are quite happy to praise the same departments that they are still trying to do away with, FEMA is just one such example.

They are wordsmiths of the highest order, 'entitlement reforms' simply mean cutting programs to the poor in order to scrape off massive profits for the rich in the form of lowering taxes and keeping them low, regardless of how much pain and suffering they cause to the bottom 98% of Americans, half of whom are poor republicans who need these programs to live and feed their families.

The Fiscal Cliff  and Debt Ceiling talks have one thing in common, the willingness by the Republicans to do everything they can to bring pain and suffering to America's poor and needy, who just want to live. 

Republicans maintain that there is no leadership from the President, by which they mean the President should fold to their demands to inflict pain onto the poor, and lead the rest of the Democrats kicking and screaming towards the Republican's evil way of thinking.

Don't Ban Guns Or Large Capacity Clips, Just Insure Them

The biggest obstruction to sensible laws against gun violence and other gun related concerns is the Military Industrial Complex and their lobbyists who effectively tie the hands of politicians who are indebted to them.

So my simple solution is to make it law that guns are to be annually insured against the risk or danger they present. I suspect there will be a drop in gun ownership by an estimated 60% within the first month as the majority of owners will not be willing to pay insurance fees for excess armaments, keeping only the minimum necessary. There will be very little stockpiling of weapons.

I myself see the need for Food, Guns, Viruses and Medicines which right now, are mostly toxic in nature, but do serve a good purpose. They all have their place in a growing Global society.

No one's rights to keep or bear arms will be affected as the weapons will not be banned or restricted, but will simply be charged an appropriate fee for the different levels of risk they present to human beings, as determined by the insurance company, with no government input or restriction.

The insurance cost of guns and bullets will be on a sliding scale which will be solely decided by the Insurance companies thereby keeping with the Republican mantra of letting the Capitalistic 'free markets' control where the market will go. There will be no government involvement when it comes to how high a fee the insurance industry will charge against the risk the various weapons and their bullets or extended gun clips present.

A company can charge from 10% to 100% of the cost of the weapon as an annual fee and the same scale can be applied for the cost of each bullet in any sized clip, resulting in higher annual fees for larger clips or automatic and semi automatic weapons than older less efficient guns and bullets.

In effect, a six bullet .38 special will cost far less to insure than a newer model gun that carries 10 bullets or more. Each bullet can cost up to 100% of its purchase price to annually insure it. The same applies to each gun, resulting in an immediate drop in the hoarding of guns or bullets.

More specialized guns and bullets would be charged whatever fees the insurance deems necessary, so 'hollow point' or other special bullets would be more expensive to annually insure than regular non specialized ammunition. 

The insurance companies will be allowed to charge fees for home insurance where the guns and bullets would be housed, including commercial buildings. Fees would also be allowed for vehicles that will house or transport guns and ammo. 

Added to this insurance requirement, there will be 'Buy-Back' programs at all police stations, just as is done at present, in order for owners to get rid of excess equipment. 

Whatever health requirements and registration  requirements the insurance companies deem necessary will be as the insurance company sees fit. This one first step will be enough to curb most of our gun concerns, after which we can address any unforeseen problems with the remaining guns.

While Republicans Were Fighting Against An Alleged "Muslim Agenda"

According to many including myself, the Citizens United decision famously made by SCOTUS was an opening door through which foreign countries and companies could now pump anonymous monies into American politics and elections, and thereby sway election results and indeed the elected. 

There has been recent articles released that support claims that foreign monies did in fact  take anonymous root in US politics. Saudi Arabia is just one of many possible countries and donors who, it has come to light, has spent millions of dollars to run negative ads against the Democrats in an effort to change the 2012 Presidential election results in a way that would be advantageous to themselves. 

The "The “American” in American Petroleum Institute, the country’s largest oil lobby group, is a misnomer. As I reported for The Nation in August, the group has changed over the years, and is now led by men like Tofiq Al-Gabsani, a Saudi Arabian national who heads a Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Aramco) subsidiary, the state-run oil company that also helps finance the American Petroleum Institute. Al-Gabsani is also a registered foreign agent for the Saudi government.
New disclosures retrieved today, showing some of API’s spending over the course of last year, reveal that API used its membership dues (from the world’s largest oil companies like Chevron and Aramco) to finance several dark money groups airing attack ads in the most recent election cycle. The disclosures also show that in 2011, API spent over $68 million for public relations/advertising with the firm Edelman, $5.4 million on “coalition building” with the firm Advocates Inc, and $4 million with DDC Advocacy for “advocacy.” DDC is the firm led by Sara Fagen, the former Bush White House aide ensnared in the DOJ purges scandal. DDC now works with corporations to help them communicate with workers on how to vote."
This foreign interference in our elections is disturbing but it is not the whole of my concern...there is more. According to the most asinine Republican claims, there is a hidden Muslim agenda to install Sharia law in the halls of American policy institutions and courts around the US. This fire of hatred for another religion that is not of the Christian persuasion, is fueled regularly by the likes of 'conservative' radio and TV hosts, most notably Sean Hannity. Someone should tell Sean that one major shareholder in Fox News' parent company is a muslim Prince who offered then NY Mayor Guiliani 10 million dollars after 9/11!!

For the past two years, while gearing up for the 2012 Presidential elections, republicans have been all but lost on exactly who was paying for their hateful and vehement message against Muslims, to be carried on advertisements on radio and TV. It is shameful to see that the republicans in their haste to hate Muslims, do not see that those said Muslims are the ones who are using the republicans as mindless pawns to elect politicians on the right who will forward whatever agenda those foreign donors wish.

It is not obvious to me what agenda is being put forth by any foreign donors, but it is apparent that the republican party and its supporters will blindly go to the highest bidder, regardless of who they are; this certainly opens the door for Iran, North Korea and even China to buy the republican party's favor and condemn America to the wishes of foreign powers. This borders on Treason.

K.I.N.D. Kids In Need of Desks...My Xmas Wish

All I wanted for Christmas was my home back in the Rockaways... yes, the same Rockaways that was washed away by Hurricane Sandy a few weeks ago. But I think I have found something that I want more...

There are kids in Malawi who sit for hours on the ground, a ground made of dust, a ground made of wood, or a ground made of cold, hard, unapologetic...concrete.

I have seen Lawrence O'Donnell make this heartening plea for some of us...any of us, to make a gift of a desk for these kids, desks which will give to a child more that we ever could.

Who could think that some pieces of wood and steel pipes could give to these kids more than we ever could... well...a desk could give a child a sense of direction, a sense of worth, a sense of pride in learning, a place to sit while learning, a table on which to write the work they learn in school... and just as important, or even more so, a place to eagerly return, day after day... to educate themselves, to change their lives for the better, by their own hand. 

This is what I want for Christmas... someone, anyone to help make a dream come true, for these kids. 

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Make a gift to these kids today, help us to do that which needs to be done, and the kids will do the rest themselves...

Do Republican Lawmakers Want You To Die?

The question is not how much money should we spend on entitlements, the question should be how much money are we willing to invest in keeping Americans alive! 

The Republicans are masters at distracting us from the topics of the day and the real results their actions will bring. They lie and distract us so that we will not see that people die when the wrong decisions are made about Healthcare, Medicare, Social Security and other needed social programs. 

Republican lawmakers know more people will die as a result of cutting needed social programs, they are trying to hide that fact from you. Republican lawmakers know that when they cut programs or whittle them down to a point where they are not effective to the largest amount of people that need them, some of those people will die. 

Republican lawmakers know that by cutting funding to social programs, families will suffer... kids will go hungry, young people will be forced into serious situations that can cause them to end up in prison... thereby lining the pockets of the big spenders who control the Prisons, which is now a growing business model.

Republican lawmakers know that when the poor and middle class are affected with bad health, starvation and poverty, this gives them a smaller voting block to fight against in all coming elections. That's all this vehement fight about the fiscal cliff is for the Republicans... just another way to stifle the voice of Americans who oppose them in elections, who stand against their grab for power at every election.

Many Americans fought and died to give us the freedom to vote and the right to live a healthy and productive life. Health is a right...not a privilege that some Republican lawmakers have to weigh on their scales of spending versus cutting social programs. 

Feeding and caring for a family is not a privilege that Republican lawmakers need to give their Royal consent to, like some evil lord surveying his peasant farmers. These social programs are a right that every American pays for, by the blood, sweat and tears they put forth, to build a great country like ours. These rights are fought for in the battlefields where our soldiers bleed...and fall. 

Republican Lawmakers do us a dishonor when they lord over us...and our fallen comrades who give their lives for this country so that their family will be taken care of, so that their kids will have a brighter and more secure future... so that their family will live healthy lives instead of suffering and waiting to die... at the hands of Republican Lawmakers.

On The Fiscal Cliff... President Reagan Raised Taxes, So Should We.

President Reagan learned his lessons really fast when it came to mistakes he made in his tax reforms. He famously tried to cut taxes and walk away without raising revenue to cover those cuts... but learned the hard way that you can't have cuts in some areas and not raise revenues to cover it. So a few months after he cut taxes he had to start raising them amazing 11 times!! 

This coming 'Fiscal cliff' event is creating all sorts of discussions and ideas, but if we look at history, it seems all too clear."But in the face of large and growing deficits, Reagan eventually did come around on the need for additional revenue. Even before the 1981 tax cut was on the books, many White House advisers had begun to worry about projected deficits, which were on a steady upward march from 2.6 percent of gross domestic product in 1981 to 4 percent in 1982. They would reach 6 percent in 1983.So, just weeks after his Santa Barbara signing ceremony, Reagan floated the possibility of -- wait for it -- closing loopholes. He was careful to avoid any suggestion that he wanted a tax increase. Instead, he and his advisers asked Congress for "revenue enhancements."
Euphemisms can obscure a variety of sins. And Reagan's euphemist, Larry Kudlow -- then an official in the Office of Management and Budget -- was unrepentant. "There's no better way to sell economic theory than by the euphemistic route," he told the New York Times." ...[in other words, confuse the republican base that just don't get it]

Enter Ben Stein...noted eye drops guy...on Fox news trying to educate their viewers. [There's a joke in that statement somewhere]
Mr. Stein is making the clear cut statement that he agrees with President Obama that some raising of taxes is warranted by the present fiscal needs of the country. 
Courtesy YoungTurks...
"I hate to say this on Fox-- and I hope I'll be able to leave here alive—but I don't think there is any way we can cut spending enough to make a meaningful difference. We're going to have to raise taxes on very rich people, people with income like say $2-3 million a year and up and then slowly move it down,... " When taxes were 70%-80%, "we were extremely prosperous..."

As President Obama said, 'it's math'  when we raise taxes carefully, we will grow the economy in a positive way and become as Ben Stein says 'extremely prosperous'

President Clinton Tours The Hurricane Devastated Rockaways.

President Clinton made an impromptu tour of some of the affected beach areas in the Rockaways in New York yesterday. He was observed by this AI reporter visiting one disaster recovery site in Rockaway Beach, amid cheers of jubilation and applause by residents of the area. President Clinton was briefed by commanders of a large contingent of the National Guard, which has been on hand coordinating the disaster recovery efforts since Hurricane Sandy devastated the area.

Below is some of the exclusive footage by this AI reporter, of what the President saw during his inspection of the devastated area.

His visit comes fast on the heels of a similar visit by President Obama who visited Hurricane Sandy affected areas three days ago. This one-two punch by the Presidents has been a valued boost to the residents who are struggling to reclaim some semblance of their former lives, which thus far has been a visage of wanton devastation that is so widespread, the likes of which New York has not seen in almost a century.

These visits are in stark contrast to a no show by Republican leaders who have apparently forgotten or not seen it fit to grace the distraught residents of the Rockaways with their 'royal' presence yet... weeks after Hurricane Sandy hit the area. I can only deduce that the Republicans have more pressing business to do...which probably involves champagne, country clubs and dinners attended  by the likes of the Romneys and other one-percenters. 

Life goes on for the faceless poor and middle-class families of the Rockaways, who are supported in their time of need by people who really care, much like the Red Cross and the countless churches who bring clothing, food and essential supplies to the devastated areas on a daily basis. 

There is still much of the Rockaways that are yet to have electric power restored as the temperature plummets at night, making it that much harder for residents to cope with the hurricane disaster...which was followed the week after by a Nor'easter, which pummeled the area for a second time bringing winds in excess of 60mph, heavy rains and much unwanted flooding to already devastated areas.

'Occupy Sandy' has also set up shop in the area and I look forward to bringing you an update as recovery operations continue.

CNN's Soledad O'Brien Spectacularly Hands Republican Congressman His Head On A Silver Platter Over And Over And Over Again (Video)

I am at a loss for words to see that Joe Heck, a Republican Congressman on the Intelligence Committee, who is about to be part of an Intelligence Hearing at which former CIA Director Patraeus is due to testify about the Benghazi event, is schooled over and over on his obvious lack of Intelligence and the sheer vindictive attitude he and his fellow Republicans harbor against the Obama Administration as they try to carry on the country's business.

At issue was a moronic talking point put out by Republicans which says that UN Ambassador Susan Elizabeth Rice carries some sort of 'pseudo' blame, for presenting the Obama Administration's position right after the Benghazi incident as being of the understanding that a video was the accelerant that caused the deaths of Americans at the US Consulate.

Mr. (Heck if I know) Joe Heck was asked over and over to explain with any coherency (to no avail) what is the difference between Condoleezza Rice's outright lies about WMD's and Susan Rice's truthful rendering of the information that at the time was presented to the Obama Administration and why one statement is ok and the other is not.

What is at issue with both statements, is the fact that the Republicans keep  insisting the lies that were told by Condaleeza Rice about WMD's were acceptable while the truthful statements by Ambassador Susan Rice was somehow unacceptable even though that is what the Intelligence sources had said they thought at the time. 

This is truly hilarious. He tempers his idiotic statement after being bitch-slapped, resigning to the admission that he does not blame Susan Rice...(anymore.) Here is the video...

Ranking Republican Reveals - "Conservatives Fleeced And ‘Lied To By Conservative Entertainment Complex’

David Frum broke the most startling revelation  today by admitting - “Republicans have been fleeced and exploited, and lied to by a conservative entertainment complex,”

Mr. Frum, once a speechwriter for President George W Bush, was on MSNBC's  'Morning Joe' when he broke this piece of shocking news to the panel on the show.  

This  well known contributing editor for 'The Daily Beast' and 'Newsweek' qualified his statement when he said... "The Republican party has a party of followership, The problem with Republican leaders is that they’re cowards, not that they’re fundamentally mistaken, The real locus of the problem is the GOP activist base and the Republican donor base. They went apocalyptic over the past four years and that was exploited by a lot of people in the conservative world... I won't soon forget the lupine smile that play over the head of one major conservative institution when he told me that our donors think that the apocalypse has arrived...that Republicans have been fleeced and exploited, and lied to by a conservative entertainment complex,”

Scarborough interjected" Wait...I want you ...and I'm dead serious...I want you to slowly repeat this...[long winded comment here] ...hopefully conservatives would go back and look at what commentators [limbaugh, hannity, levin, O'reilly, Fox and Friends, Cavuto, to name a few]  and websites said, over the past three weeks when they knew this race was lost."

David Frum repeated his headline ...“Republicans have been fleeced and exploited, and lied to by a conservative entertainment complex,” ...'I name names in the book" [He just released an e-book titled 'Why Romney Lost']

Joe followed... " Conservatives have been lied to by people who engage in niche marketing and make tens of millions of dollars engaging in niche marketing, and I’m a capitalist, God bless ‘em they can do whatever they want to do…but that’s not an electoral strategy, that’s a business strategy for them.”

Frum later tweeted the challenge ..."By the way, if anybody at Fox would like me to repeat to their faces what I said on Morning Joe this AM, I accept. Unlikely, I know, but …"

Senate To Have Historic Number Of Females.

The Republicans' 'War on women' seems to have given them exactly what they wished for, a war... from women who I am sure will make their presence felt in many ways. It is no secret that when women are involved in making decisions that deal with women's issues, the outcomes are far more advantageous to women than if the traditional sexist old white men made the calls.

There is no way that those stuck up old farts would know the slightest thing about what women go through when faced with excruciating pain or overwhelming odds against their well being. It had become increasingly difficult to watch the old farts propose bill after bill that limited women's well being, limited their contraceptive options and limited their abortion options. writes... "Joining the Senate will be Republican Deb Fischer (Neb.) and Democrats Tammy Baldwin (Wis.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.).

All six Democratic women up for reelection -- Sens. Maria Cantwell (Wash.), Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.) and Debbie Stabenow (Mich.) -- won their races.

Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.) lost her Senate race to incumbent Dean Heller.
Five Republican female candidates lost on Tuesday. Wendy Long ran against Gillibrand, Elizabeth Emken went up against Feinstein and Linda Lingle ran against Hirono. Linda McMahon in Connecticut and Heather Wilson in New Mexico also lost.

There are currently 17 female U.S. senators, which had also been a record number. Sens. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) are both retiring"

For the next two years we will have the best Senate we have ever had, simply because there will be a total of twenty female Senators who will be willing to make the hard choices and decisions that old men seem not to grasp; decisions that cause women to face harm and even death... as a result more women will live and prosper under the watchful eyes of these female Senators, both Democratic and Republican alike.

"When women are part of the negotiation and are part of decision-making, the outcomes are just better," Gillibrand told The Huffington Post last year, discussing the importance of having female representation in the chamber. "When we have our dinners with the women in the Senate -- the Democrats and Republicans -- we have so much common ground. We agree on so many basic principles and values. I think if there were more women at the decision-making table, we would get more things done."

Elizabeth Warren Wins Back Kennedy's Seat, Beats Scott Brown!

Elizabeth Warren did what everyone wanted, she beat Scott Brown in a tight race for Ted Kennedy's seat. This will always be Ted's seat... he earned that right as the 'Lion of the Senate.' Scott Brown fought a good race as he was widely regarded by many as a moderate.

According to Maurice Cunningham, a political scientist at the University of Massachusetts, he was well liked enough, to present a challenge for the Democrats to field a candidate to run against him. 

USAToday writes... "He's a very strong and very deft candidate," Cunningham said. "He's persuaded folks he's an independent voice. But Warren, a Harvard Law School professor, erupted onto the scene, apparently from nowhere, when a speech she gave in Andover about economics went viral and gained her a national following. She had been an adviser for President Obama and came up with the concept of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau... She's got a lot of passion, particularly on economic issues...She's got that fire that reminds you of Kennedy a little bit"

Warren is a breath of fresh air for the party and the people of Massachusetts who, with Brown, have had to swallow the Republican swill much as Joe Lieberman's constituents have had to do. That is as disgusting as having a blue dog Democrat as your Senator...something I have a hard time accepting. They stab you in the back more times than most. Congratulations to Elizabeth Warren, we look forward to following your bright future as Senator!

Proof That Red States Are The Real Welfare States.

I had written this article previously that showed in no uncertain terms that the Red States were the ones that were receiving more dollars back from the government than the money they give to the Feds. That article gave us these figures...'States receiving the most federal funding per tax dollar paid:
1. New Mexico: $2.63
2. West Virginia: $2.57
3. Mississippi: $2.47
4. District of Colombia: $2.41
5. Hawaii: $2.38
6. Alabama: $2.03
7. Alaska: $1.93
8. Montana: $1.92
9. South Carolina: $1.92
10. Maine: $1.78

Now we have new data coming from US Dept Of Agriculture and crunched by the financial whizzes at Bloomberg that tell a different story about why Red States take the cake at being the Welfare queens. According to the findings... "Seventy percent of counties with the fastest-growth in food-stamp aid during the last four years voted for the Republican presidential candidate in 2008 according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data compiled by Bloomberg. They include Republican strongholds like King County, Texas, which in 2008 backed Republican John McCain by 92.6 percent, his largest share in the nation; and fast-growing Douglas County,Colorado."

Douglas County Republican Party's Mark Baisley thinks that the republican voter will be on Mitt Romney's side... even though they are largely the majority of the '47%' that Mitt seems to want to scrape off his shoe like dog droppings. Mr. Nicholas Colas, chief market strategist at ConvergEx Group LLC thinks President Obama will command the more [risk averse] educated voter who takes the less risky and longer road to success.

Romney had [unintelligently] suggested transferring control of food stamps and other federal programs to states but that would just end in disaster when Nature unfurls her fury on states; like we saw happen with Hurricane Sandy last week, and with Hurricane Katrina before.  The states hit by disaster do not have the capability to deal with these programs while they are reeling from natural or other disasters, this would mean families would starve for weeks or months if this were to happen.

With that lack of intelligent thinking on the part of Romney, it is pretty scary to think that a 1%er will make compassionate decisions where the 47% are concerned...I hope Mitt loses this election.

The Romneys’ Hands Caught In The Cookie Jar, Time For Mitt To Prove Himself

It was learned yesterday that Mitt and Ann Romney have more than likely broken ethics laws. The law is simple; The writes:
Federal law requires that candidates disclose stock holdings that are affected by government action—and Romney’s million-dollar (at least) investment in a hedge fund that bought up Delphi stocks surely fits that bill…  Under any rational interpretation of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, these are holdings that a presidential candidate would need to disclose, because they can be affected by government action.”

On Thursday afternoon, UAW President Bob King and SEIU Vice President Tom Woodruff, among others, called for an official investigation into Mitt Romney’s investments and the possible ethics violations stemming from those investigations. Mitt’s investments in Delphi stock, through a blind trust in Ann Romney’s name, is the center of  attention because the investments clearly raise concerns of violations.
The event on Thursday was held in Toledo, OH. A strongly worded letter was sent to Mr. Don Fox, General Counsel and Principal Deputy Director, United States Office of Government Ethics. Excerpts from the letter reads as follows:
We are writing to provide you with further evidence of the pressing need to conduct the investigation we requested in our previous letter of August 23, 2012 into presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s financial disclosures, which do not appear to be in compliance with the Ethics in Government Act, 5 U.S.C. App. § 101 et seq.

As we stressed in our initial letter, those disclosures lack information about the candidate’s stock holdings which the public has a right to know. As you are aware, the Act requires candidates for federal office to disclose their financial holdings so that the public can identify potential conflicts of interest and personal economic  priorities of federal officials and candidates. While some officials use blind trusts to satisfy these disclosure requirements, Mitt Romney himself has said “The blind trust is an age-old ruse, if you will. Which is to say you can always tell a blind trust what it can and cannot do.”
The issue is not if or how much money the investment made, the issue is that, in all honesty, a Presidential candidate must release certain financial information as proof that he/she is of a caliber that is high enough – sterling enough – to represent the country on a global stage.

It is high time that Mitt and his ‘blind’ trusts are investigated. How can he run for the Presidency without revealing his (in my opinion) tainted and questionable taxes? I refuse to have an alleged thief for a President and the onus lies upon him to prove his quality and commitment to represent America…and by extension, the world.

Pres Clinton Says He Is More Enthusiastic About Pres Obama Now, Than In 2008...That's Huge!

President Clinton is on the stump for President Obama... Who would know more about great job performance than a former President? That speaks volumes because right now there are so many negative ads on the TV and radio about President Obama that the independents are still confused about where to cast their vote. writes...'Former President Bill Clinton struck at GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney Tuesday, saying "the arithmetic" of his tax cuts plan and his plot to create 12 million new jobs don't add up and President Barack Obama thwarted an even deeper economic depression...

"I'm far more enthusiastic about it today than I was then," Clinton said, noting he did 40 events for Obama four years ago. Clinton lashed out at Romney's claim that he would create 12 million jobs, saying independent economists have predicted that if Obama's existing policies continued there would be 12 million new jobs created anyway in the next four years.

"The essential argument of Governor Romney is, 'Hey I look like a president, I act like a president, I have proven I can change my message for any circumstance and position,'" Clinton said. "So elect me and I'll claim credit for the jobs of President Obama's policies."

The safest and surest way that undecided voters can weigh the issue is to listen to the one person that they can trust, someone who has been a President, who has seen the 'behind the scenes' classified stuff, someone who understands the demands faced by the Commander in Chief... indeed someone who warned President Bush about the threat of Osama Bin Laden! 

For President Clinton to say that he is more enthusiastic about President Obama now than in 2008, is in itself the greatest endorsement one President can give to another.

What he is saying is that he has now seen No. 44 in action, he has seen him pass through the fire and has seen that fire forge No.44 into the man of true grit and determination... needed to hold the reigns of progress for the next crucial four years. He has seen No.44 prove his mettle... prove his compassion for the American people and his ability to lead us out of this dark Republican created past.

We are at a time of great insecurity but also great promise, a time of great disasters but also unyielding hope, we see the agony of defeat behind us and we also see the unlimited potential  of America's prosperity on the path forward. A path that leads America once more, to victory.

Romney and his cadre of foreign secret donors want nothing but the worst for America, so they can swoop down like vultures and collect the carcasses that their policies will create. They view America as just another market for them to manipulate and suck bone dry of its resources and its people's hopes and dreams.

The middle class is the backbone of any growing economy and the international companies see a fallen America as a prize well worth exploiting...turning us into another wasteland of stolen dreams, broken people, wanton destruction and crippling poverty...this must not happen...this will not happen under President Obama. His love for America is proven... he does not hide his money overseas. He does not bet against America...we should not either.

Joe Biden Finally Speaks His Mind On Romney's "Dishonest" Ad.

Until now, VP Joe Biden has kept his powder dry when it came to commenting on the Chrysler and GM ad  when Mitt Romney said the car companies were shipping their jobs to China Well, you know Joe... he is a beacon of light in these matters. When it comes to misleading the American people, he has time and time again put his foot down, on the side of the citizenry.

Today was no different, in keeping with the trend of what a real Vice President [remember Dick Cheney?] should do in defense of the American people. Joe blasted Mitt Romney as being 'Flagrantly Dishonest' for continuing to use the highly debunked ad. The ad has been debunked more times than the cock crows and Mitt Romney and his camp has chosen to stick to their game plan that if you repeat something often enough it will stick.

HuffPost... "Vice President Joe Biden tore into Mitt Romney on Wednesday for running ads with a widely debunked claim about Chrysler and General Motors shipping American jobs to China, saying it calls into question the character of the Republican presidential nominee.
During a campaign event in Sarasota, Fla., Biden called the latest ad one of the "most scurrilous" and "most flagrantly dishonest ads I can remember in my political career...What a cynical, cynical thing to do... Presidential elections are overwhelmingly about character," said Biden. "My guy, your guy, has character ... [He] does not engage in deception. He means what he says."
Spokesmen for the car companies have said... "A GM spokesman responded Tuesday with an unusually sharp rebuke, saying Romney has "clearly entered some parallel universe" and that it reflects "campaign politics at its cynical worst." Similarly, a Chrysler spokesman said there was "no validity" to the ad. Instead, the spokesman said, the company is looking to open new factories in China to meet increasing demand there, a move that would not involve outsourcing American jobs."
As if under the spell of  'forked tongue'... Paul Ryan quickly made his own comment ... HuffPost writes, 'Shortly after Biden's remarks, Romney's vice presidential running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), responded by insisting the campaign's ads are accurate"American taxpayers are on track to lose $25 billion as a result of President Obama’s handling of the auto bailout, and GM and Chrysler are expanding their production overseas..." 
For a Presidential candidate and his team to be described as 'scurrilous, cynical and deceptive' as the Romney campaign has been says a says all that voters need to focus on for the coming election and the honesty of Mitt Romney.

A Vote For Republicans Is A Vote For God Sanctioned Rape And Against Women.

What would happen if a rapist decides to file for custody of the child he fathered with his rape victim? What if he just demanded visitation rights? This is a very stark reality if Republicans win the White House. 'God sanctioned rape' is the term used recently to describe what a woman, impregnated by a rapist, would hear from her Republican representatives who will make the decisions when in office that will set the guidelines as to when the rape victim can get an abortion to terminate the pregnancy that is more than likely to destroy her future and possibly that of those around her who share her life...her parents...her husband...her other kids.

Republicans seem to be obsessed with a woman's vagina and what she can do with that particular part of her body. The Republicans running for office in this election want voters to believe they are not waging a war on women...they expect that they will just nonchalantly tell women what to do and women will simply shut the fuck up and comply...

Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Todd Aiken and Richard Mourdock all share the same opinion that rape can be categorized as many things, such as there being legitimate rape, or rape being their God's blessing, or there even being a problem with rape being too easy, because as Republican State Representative Roger Rivard says...'some girls rape easy.' 

There has always been the precedent that the republican base votes against his/her own best interests and against the better interests of their own parents and children who stand to lose traditional healthcare with the repeal of Obamacare, so all eyes are trained on what will happen in this election if Republican women don't rise up against their obvious degrading by Republican candidates.

Republican women so far do not seem to be put out by the strange remarks being voiced by these Republican men who apparently have been given the floor to say and do anything where rape and women's rights are concerned. There was a marked silence by Republican women when it was revealed by then Santorum financial sugar daddy Foster Friess that women can just put some aspirin between their knees when they needed to take care of their contraceptive needs. 

I end this strange rant with the warning...A vote for republicans is a vote against women...

President Obama Reveals Plan For The Road Forward In 'Blueprint For America's Future"

While the GOP plays politics and tries to take the US to the edge of another depression, their new weapon of terror on the American people - Mitt Romney- repeats his mindless chant over and over like a broken record-'The President doesn't have a plan.' As if waiting to unveil his 'Ace in the hole,' the President masterfully waited until he trumped Mitt Romney in the Third debate last night, to unveil his booklet showing his plan for the next four years.

Politico writes... "FIRST LOOK—OBAMA TO EMPHASIZE PLANS FOR A SECOND TERM: The president will unveil a 20-page “Blueprint for America’s Future” glossy at a 10 a.m. campaign event down here. 3.5 million copies of the plan are being printed. 1.5 million copies will go to field offices for distribution. Laid out like a magazine on 8 ½ by 11 paper, the guide ( has sections on reviving manufacturing and increasing American energy production (, growing small businesses and improving education (, fixing the tax code and improving health care ( and  protecting retirement security ("

"From an Obama campaign official: “The President, Vice President, and all of our surrogates will hold up the plan at events and ask our massive grassroots network to do everything they can to share the plan with their family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and others to reach every undecided voter in the remaining days of this election and ensure they understand the choice between continuing to move America forward and going back to the same policies that devastated our economy and punished the middle class.”

In the fashion of a true leader the President has unleashed what some will say is the final blow to his opponent with this 'blueprint.' Mitt Romney has built his whole argument around the GOP mantra that Obama had no plan, clueless to the fact that the President made a two minute video and countless speeches more than two years ago outlining his strategies for the future. Let me rephrase that... Mitt Romney is not clueless...he knows...but he's just lying.

Romney Selling Out America...The Real Deal About Mitt And The Chinese!

Mitt Romney is on the podium preaching the line that he would create jobs, while his buddies at Bain is outsourcing jobs to China. But that is just the tip of the iceberg that we see, the larger picture is worse and is happening right now as you read this.

These greedy bastards are not only pulling jobs out of Freeport Il, where there are no good jobs to replace them, but they are actually packing up the Sensata factory and shipping the equipment...and our specialized American technology to China. They are not even sneaking around like spies to sell the technology to China, they are brazenly taking the technology and handing it gift wrapped to the Chinese. 

It is no secret that the Chinese have been breaking all our patent laws and stealing American designs and technologies for years, but now Mitt and his greedy cohorts are actually taking the technology to China themselves. The technology is worth far more than the plant is and will be able to generate billions of dollars for the Chinese economy while robbing America's economy in the process.

To make matters worse, they brought Chinese engineers to the plant between May and July of this year and forced the Sensata workers to train them, before losing their jobs to the Chinese. Usually a company is sold when it is not making a profit but in the case of Sensata, the company made more than 500 million dollars in the second quarter of 2012.

Aren't there laws about selling secrets to foreign governments? This Sensata plant produces the highest quality sensors which are then sold to various car companies. The technology is uniquely American and is of the highest standard worldwide. The Chinese are just salivating over the prospect of acquiring the new technology...something they would take years to develop on their own.

According to numbers on The Ed Show, Bain owns 51% of Sensata and Romney has at least $8 million worth of stock in Sensata, so Mitt Romney is very well informed that he is party to the outsourcing of American jobs to China...something he and his campaign are very tight lipped about. 

For the past few months the workers have been fighting tooth and nail to keep the jobs here. They have sent letters to Romney and his camp pleading for his input in saving their livelihoods. They have had doors shut on them by the Romney people and many of them have been arrested in protests held outside of the plant.

In the latest attempt to shed light on the issue, Ed Schultz of MSNBC did his evening show live from the Freeport Il today, at the workers' camp which is set up just outside the company gates. The workers have been trying to impede the trucks that come and go with the equipment being shipped. In response to the show broadcast, the plant gates were barricaded and the workers were not allowed into the compound to work today.

I look forward to Ed  making a stink about this all the way to the elections and beyond, I for one will be right at his side. 

The writes... 'Freeport itself has had appearances from Illinois Governor Pat Quinn, former NAACP Chairman Julian Bond, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), and the Democratic challenger for the Illinois 17th District Cheri Bustos. In addition, there has also been the production of a documentary at “Bainport,” and Reverend Al Sharpton is scheduled to appear there at 4 p.m. on Saturday. 
CNN reported live from Freeport on Wednesday...'

Mitt Romney should not be elected President, he has been a dishonest broker in this whole matter...he is lying to the American people...he is not deserving of that job.
