Anti-Capitalist Meet-Up: Mitt And His Fellow Vulture Capitalists See Venezuela As a Threat: It Is.

The likely Republican presidential candidate and quintessential vulture capitalist, Mitt Romney, chided President Obama for not being sufficiently fearful of Venezuela’s socialist president, Hugo Chávez Friás last week. In the conservative Daily Telegraph Mitt is quoted as saying:

President Obama, Mitt Romney, and Congress: Fiscal Cliffs, Deficit Terrorism, and Homeless Children

cross posted in orange

As you all know it's election season, and for that reason I am advised by some Democrats to shut up about the dire issues of the day that all of Washington D.C are failing all of us on. They say to wait until they don't have to care about us or these issues. By that time they will be on their way to "sequestering" and slashing Social Security and Medicare in their sellout grand bargains. They say unless good words are heard our President can't spread his wings and fly like a bird on to victory in 2012.

Curtailing speech and its enablers

As we all know Saudi Arabia is one of the worst nations in the world when it comes to freedom of expression. Their draconian laws are now being expanded and it may be a bit surprising who is working with them and others such as Pakistan to develop international standards for blasphemy prosecutions.

Saudi Arabia Moves Toward Expansion of Blasphemy Law To Cover Social Networks and Blogs

The West has steadily yielded to the demands of religious groups that free speech must be curtailed in the name of faith. At the same time, West governmental and religious leaders have denounced agnostics and atheists as one of the greatest threats facing the West

Alright People, the President Needs Our Help!

I’ve received two emails over the past 24 hours that have tugged at my heart strings. Perhaps you’ve received them too. The first was from the Democratic National Committee:

We've got a problem.

This week, we learned that Mitt Romney and the Republican Party outraised us for the second month in a row. This time, it was by more than $35 million.

Now, we don't need to win the fundraising race to beat Mitt Romney. But the gap is growing at an alarming rate, and if we don't start closing that gap right now, it will be too late.

It's up to you.

Your Tired, Your Poor, Your Jobless Masses: They Don’t Want to Talk About You in This Campaign

Cross Posted in orange

That’s right; the tired huddled masses yearning for a living wage need not apply for real representation in 2012. Many do not want to talk about it during campaign season. However, it’s not going away, and there’s a reason; unlike what neoclassical/neoliberal economic garbage stipulates, high unemployment can continue on indefinitely.

Populist conservative backlash against "The Loathsome Romney Candidacy"?

This in yesterday from The American Conservative magazine. There may be hope for bringing over disaffected Republican-leaning independents, but also perhaps even classical conservative Republicans -- versus the maniacal Ayn Rand-luvin' GOP radical libertarians like Paul Ryan, Romney, and Rand Paul.

Hey There Obama

Hey There Obama

hey there Obama
what's it like there in that bubble
yeah, I hate to spoil the party
but here on main street
we're in trouble
yes it's true
not that it matters much to you
what else is new

hey there Obama
sorry wisdom from a cynic
I'm still here with no insurance
and two hours from a clinic
save your spin
you've got an ear that's made of tin
that's not a win
