The Symbol of the Republican Party

The Trojan Horse ... the new symbol of the GOP! (Just ask the citizens/voters of Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio.)

Dictatorship in Michigan

Michigan Republican Governor Rick Snyder (pictured right) thinks he's a dictator by taking over Benton Harbor, Michigan and placing a corporate puppet in charge of the town after replacing elected officials on the city council as well as the mayor, all of whom were elected by the voters of Benton Harbor.

Check out the speech by the would be dictator ... what a moron!

Ahead Of The Pack

Good Friday

Voter's Remorse

Like heftyinfo said to voters regarding the GOP takeover of the U.S. House of Representatives ... be careful what you wish for because you'll be sorry!
The voters of Wisconsin let Republican U.S. Representative Paul Ryan have it at this recent town hall meeting in his district.
Ryan's budget plan includes gutting Medicare and Medicaid as well as privatizing Social Security while proposing at the same time MORE TAX BREAKS for the wealthiest two percent of Americans.

Well Said

The other day when President Barack Obama spoke at George Washington University about the so called budget plan that republican representative Paul Ryan came up with, it was a breath of fresh air to hear him go after the greedy people that have brought this country to the brink of ruin.
The big banks and multi-national corporations haven't been paying their fair share of taxes like the rest of the American people over the years and Ryan expects the tab for the national debt to be picked up by old people and working people while the wealthiest Americans get a free ride.
Obama called the plan just what it is.
"That's not right," Obama said regarding where the burden would be placed with Ryan's plan.
Well said!
The ultra rich and the mega multi-national corporations need to pay their fair share as well while the real people who pump money into our economy should get a break for a change.
That is what needs to happen in the United States of America.
We live in the 21st century and the old ways of "Reaganomics" are passe'.
Out with the old and in with the new is what should happen if America is to rebound and give everyone a fair shake in life.
This is the 21st century, NOT the late 1800's when the robber barons were ruling with an iron fist and suppressing the American people in much the same manner as terrorist regimes do in other countries.
The people that actually support Ryan's ideology are a joke and need a heavy dose of reality of what the United States of America is all about.
Make the rich people pay their fair share (as Obama said) and tax the multi-national corporations as well and see what happens to the debt.
And that is what the facts are.
If the people on the top don't want to pay their fair share in America, then get the hell out of here.
Good riddance!
Go live over in a foreign land and see how that goes for them.
Pay up is what I say and do your part to help this country of ours prosper once again.
Former judge Oliver Wendell Holmes once was quoted regarding taxes... "Paying taxes are what we do in a civilized society."
Those are the facts.
Make the people who have the moolah pay up as well as the rest of us working folk in this country.
And one more thing... God Bless the unions and the hard working people and God Bless America!

May We Never Forget

It's sad, but a little over a year ago, Massey Energy was in the news because of a coal mining tragedy in West Virginia that killed 29 coal miners.
The Massey Energy Company had over 600 safety violations in less than two years prior to the methane gas explosion that occurred just over a year ago and company president Don Blankenship (pictured upper right) has been given a free pass it seems by our corporate media ever since this story went away.
The BP (Amoco) oil spill happened just a few weeks later and DOMINATED the news for weeks and the men killed in the mining accident and Blankenship faded away from the public view.
May we never forget what happened and hope that the EPA and OSHA regulations will ALWAYS remain funded and left in place, despite efforts by Republicans in our U.S. Congress to do away with such funding, to protect America's workers.
May We Never Forget!

Let's Make A Deal

They did it!
For now anyway.
The Republican and Democratic parties came together in the United States Congress and hammered out an eleventh hour deal to keep the federal government afloat for a few more days as they look to the future, thus avoiding a government shutdown for the first time in fifteen years.
Hallelujah and Amen!
But... stay tuned, there is more squabbling to follow.

Friday Night Funk

The Tea Party Will Be The Death Of America

If the tea party has it's collective way, the United States will be six foot under and pushing up daises as the uber rich get everything and the corporations (deemed as persons by our insane Supreme Court of the United States) continue to be tax free.
Screw the rest of us Americans living here.
The tea party is made up of nothing more than simpletons who do not know any better and simply parrot right wing political talking points and do the bidding of the huge corporations that have slow but sure, taken over our country.
As a real American, I want my country back from these thieves.
Yes- thieves!
That is precisely what all of this crap is and continues to be with the corporate controlled media shilling for their masters by constantly giving these idiots exposure on the nightly newscasts. And by the way, add Donald Trump to the list of useless idiots as well with all of his inane babbling about the 'birther' conspiracy theory.
The tea party is formed by and controlled by lobbyists such as Dick Armey (Freedom Works) and the infamous bastards known as the Koch brothers, who inherited their wealth and run Koch Industries.
Why do we suddenly see all these goofy Republican governors and legislatures in various states across the USA coming up with radical right wing legislation that seeks to strip rights from the American people all in the name of "freedom?"
Freedom my ass!
These morons want nothing to do with freedom as we know it in this country.
They (tea party) talk about freedom and big government over reaching and intruding into people's lives.
Look at what they are doing... take a real good and HONEST look at what it is these clowns masquerading as "tea party" politicians are doing.
They want to control everything.
For example, Michigan's REPUBLICAN governor wants to be able to have the power to declare "financial martial law" and fire mayors of towns all across the state as well as town boards and committees (that were elected by the American people by the way) and replace them with corporate type executive "financial experts" as the would be dictators for said communities.
What in the world is going on here?
Are we living in a Banana Republic? Or worse, Nazi Germany in the 1930's?
Who the hell do these clowns think they are anyway?
Banish them to a place far, far away so they may never be heard from again in the political arena.
Of course, nationally, the tea party republicans in D.C. are pushing to shut down the government and make millions of people suffer needlessly, including the men and women of the military because THESE PEOPLE WILL NOT BE PAID BECAUSE OF THE SELFISHNESS OF THE TEA PARTY.
This country we live in and call the United States of America is of the people, by the people and for the people... not the corporate agenda!
These whack jobs don't even know (or probably don't even care to know) that the original tea party in Boston in 1773 was a REVOLT AGAINST CORPORATIONS, NOT THE GOVERNMENT.
The people who dumped the tea over board in the harbor of Boston were protesting the East India Tea Company, the Exxon Mobil of that day.
Take a lesson from history if you consider yourself to be a "patriotic" tea party American and get a clue as to what is really happening.
The people who think they are battling the government are only doing the bidding of their corporate masters and are cutting their own throats from ear to ear and they do not even realize it.
What a pity.
This country of ours deserves better than the mess the tea party is serving up.
America, get out and vote in 2012 and send the tea party over board.

Wisconsin Vote Scandal- Smells Like A Big Rat In The Land Of Cheese

Here we go again as the voters of Wisconsin may have to endure another STOLEN ELECTION attempt by the Republicans.

Wednesday, April 6, 2011



Wisconsin spoke and governor Scott Walker got smacked as his choice for Supreme Court Justice is behind by 204 votes with 100 percent of the precincts reporting.
A recall is pending, but JoAnne Kloppenburg (Democratic party) is the winner and has declared so just recently as the people of the Badger state spoke loudly and told Walker "Screw You" about his ANTI-UNION ways of governing.
Recalls are already under way for the Republicans in the Wisconsin state senate and the same fate will happen to Walker next January as Wisconites unite to take their state back.

Wall Street Greed Continues To Wreak Havoc On Americans

Let me get this straight, I see the demand for gasoline has gone DOWN for the last five weeks in a row, but the prices continue to sky rocket ($4.00 plus per gallon in Chicagoland) for no apparent reason.
Must be those Wall Street bastards once again driving up the prices because of their speculation on futures of oil.
How else do you explain prices of gasoline continuing to go UP when the demand is going DOWN?

The same thing continues to happen with food prices at the local grocery stores.
Just last week at a Jewel Food Store near my residence, the price for a one pound package of Oscar Meyer bacon was $7.88.
That is outrageous!
Speculation on foods such as meats, poultry and grains as well as dairy products continues to drive up food prices as well.
Wall Street is utterly useless as far as I'm concerned when crap like this continually happens.
If this continues, America will be at a stand still because most people will not be able to afford to do anything or go anywhere.
The sign below tells what we can expect this summer as the gas prices continue to soar.

NCAA Championship Game: Butler vs. Connecticut

The Butler Bulldogs and the UConn. Huskies will go at it for all the marbles in the Men's NCAA Basketball Championship Game on Monday night in Houston, Texas.
The Bulldogs are back in the title game for the second straight year (losing to Duke by two points in 2010) and the Huskies are seeking their first championship since 2004, when they knocked off surprising Georgia Tech in the championship game.
It should be an exciting game and the Bulldogs just might prevail this time around. But UConn. has shown much resilience themselves as they have won ten straight games, going back to the five wins in five nights they put up in the Big East Tournament three weeks ago.
Butler meanwhile, knocked off mighty Pittsburgh (from the Big East) two weeks ago to advance to the Sweet 16. The Bulldogs are in the title game after winning a thriller over "Cinderella" team Virginia Commonwealth in the National Semi-Finals yesterday.
UConn. knocked off Kentucky by one point in the other semi-final game.

Look for a tight contest with both teams playing tenacious defense throughout.
Free throws may make the difference in the final score and the call here (for what it's been worth in this year's tournament) is for the Huskies to prevail in a hard fought 62-60 win.
But DO NOT bet on that.
After all, the Bulldogs have lived up to their name all through March and into April as well.

Stay tuned!
