A Question of Greed…

Since the rule of law is dead: GOP cuts funding to the SEC because of “budget deficits,” despite the fact money for the SEC does not come from the budget, but from regulatory charges paid by the brokerage firms the SEC investigates, thus saving the same companies/banks that fucked us into a  recession millions while also…

And now, a word from our sponsors…Anarchist version…

And now, a word from our sponsors… Combichrist – Sent to Destroy So, somebody put garbage bags over the NOPD’s cameras? A Republican could have done it, said the cameras were too expensive… A Democrat could have done it, said the cameras were encroaching on privacy rights… A Libertarian could have done it, said the…

And Obama wants a thank you?

When you are the kind of person who believes the rich really don’t need any more of our money, that tax cuts to wealth don’t really create jobs, at least not the kind of jobs where you don’t need two or three of them to survive, and when you also believe that in the tightened…

And now, a word from General Electric…

My fellow Americans… We here at General Electric feel it important to take a moment, pause from your Gulf Coast coverage to remind everyone out there just how much and why, we love America.

The New York Times described it this way: “Dazed and battered survivors, half-naked and dripping in highly combustible gas, crawled inch by inch in pitch darkness, willing themselves to the…

Real Politics…elections come, elections go…

So, another election comes and goes, and what have we learned? People long for the days gone by? People are impatient? People are afraid?
