Those readers of this blog know quite well I am above all suspicious and cynical about any informatio  put out by government and or so called experts.  A brief look at the last 33 years will verify my concerns were entirely justified.  I will  highlight  just a few of the big one's below.

When Reagan and Stockman started their campaign to sell the country on Free Trade as the end all to all our needs , and showed their intent by busting PATCO right at the starting line alerted me we were on a path of destruction.  A read of the times around the Great Depression would have given you all the info needed to detect the dangers ahead.

The next tidbit that made my ears perk up when they started yakking up high paying jobs in the financial fields that would happen as they outsourced manufacturing jobs to overseas locations. Ross Perot tried to warn us by telling the GREAT SUCKING SOUND would be jobs leaving America if NAFTA was enacted.  We called him crazy and sent him on his way.  (perhaps his fear of harm to his family was real) (it does fit with things we know our government has done lately)  Sure enough the sucking sound became a roar as plant after plant closed and blue collar jobs disappeared.  Youth of the time watched as their fathers and mothers lives were destroyed, houses lost, pensions stolen, and they were left saying I gotta get me one of them high paying financial jobs.. So they rushed off to college flocking to get an MBA  and join the fun group.  In the end a lot of them ended back in their father's kitchen or maybe even a tent.  Many of them are now serving drinks, or flipping burgers or other low paying jobs as all the financial jobs disappeared..Today we are left with a very few , very rich , and half the country's household earnings below 50K a year.  All during this time the experts were telling us what a great future we are building.. Anybody with half a brain was screaming BULLSHIT.

Next up the housing bubble.  Fed chair Allen Greenspan sitting on top of the pile of brainacs in the Federal Reserve put into place deliberate rules that he knew would create a boom in housing.  All the while ignoring the practices the banks were using to issue bad mortgages (that they knew were bad) so they could get commissions and build package of derivative time bombs that they also knew would blow up eventually. At the time anybody who believed that housing prices could rise at 20% a year while wages were falling and jobs were disappearing (qualified for a seat on the fed) because Greenspan till this day claims he did not see the housing bubble or the bank crookedness.  Thank you Ayn Rand and all libertarians for giving us such a smart man?  Results are still coming in , millions have lost their homes and now we sit watching Hedge Fund pukes grabbing up blocks of homes at super discount prices.. Prices they could have put the old homeowners into instead.. but that's not how financial guru's  think.

On to environmental issues .  The evidence is all around us that something weird is happening all around the world but we see that absolutely nothing is being done politically to do anything about it.  We sit by and watch things like the Gulf oil spill happening while the companies responsible responsible lie their asses off on the size of the problem down to the amount of disperseant they are using and now show us signs of a once again beautiful Gulf, and so it is on the surface... don't look below you won't like what you see. Then Fracking hits the scene as the savior of the world energy problems and commence to drill thousands and thousands of wells each one with a life span of three years at best, while consuming huge amounts of water and poisoning water supplies wherever they drill.  100  years of energy independence they scream but on closer examination 10 years of supply is more likely.

Let's move on to GMO crops.  Once again touted as the solution to world  hunger. Beneath the rhetoric the truth reveals thousand of farmers committing suicide because once locked into the gmo seeds they cannot afford to buy them , they are ruined with no way out but death.  Bees, humingbirds, butterflys dying by the thousands and the scientist just look baffled of the cause.  These guys know full well the purpose of the GMO seeds is to kill pests that damage crops, I guess they didn't view bees, butterflys and hummingbirds as pests so they would be ok..Really , are they that stupid,, these critters eat pollen and that is poisoned too.  Seeds that were in some cases thousands of years old are contaminated and no longer produce the ancient crops and those farmers are screwed again as they can't afford the new seeds. On top of all this Mother Nature is smarter than all the scientists in the world as she is already 20 short years after the seeds were modified to produce new crops of weeds that are not harmed by the pesticides .  Surely they must have seen that coming , perhaps they kept quiet so they could sell their new breed of weed killers,  Cynical me!

One last little adventure here before closing.  Fukushima , gee we are really getting good info on that little leak into the environment .  We have been told so many lies since the disaster and most have taken that off their radar as the news we get has been pretty lame.  We are lead to belive that the reactor containment has not been breached (I don't believe it) and when you see one line that says they have no idea where the cores really are, tells you it is lot worse than we know.  We are told there has been a 300000 gal lead from a tank and later we  read that amount has been going into the pacific every day since late 2011.  Perhaps that's why all the evidence is in the ocean and animals that live in it that some bad shit is happening.  Polar bears with open soars and patches of hair missing , seal pups dying off in big numbers, fish showing signs of radiation contamination at levels we think are dangerous. Those fish are being caught as far from Japan as our Northwest coast.  How bad that mess will get before it's over is anybody's guess the experts aren't saying and perhaps don't know .

Now to the intent of this little rant.  It's absolutely OK for you to be cynical, or suspicious of all commerical input to your intelligence system .  You can absolutely count on anything given you by MSM or the government is less than the truth.  You can key on the subject at hand and with your handy little google machine you can search till you dig out what you think is the truth.  Will it be, it is up to you to keep the subject up front in your mind and keep gathering info, it still might be the whole truth but at least it will be up to date.  AS babes growing up , one of our favorite questions to our moms was WHY MOMMIE.  It is still the question you need to ask about all things, not your mommie hany more but to all who act as they know.

One of the examples in the links I am going to leave you with has two examples of what this  piecce is all about , 1. An eight grade class ask Paul Roberts to explain the effects of off shoring jobs, hell that will get the truth from him.   2. An economics class at Cambridge asked the professor to talk about a topic hot at the time , a question they can't get an answer too .  Guess what ?  The prof said he would not talk about it because it is not on the syllabus and there lies what is wrong with the world.. IT AIN'T MY JOB they do not add if i make it my job my grants go away and perhaps my job.  We are on our own , get hot.

Being a proponent of nuclear power it pains me to write this blog because I have a feeling we are being kept totally in the dark about the dangers we face in this county from the radiation leakage from Fukushima .  For instance we heard a week or so ago that 300 million gallons of leakage into the sea from a leaking tank, no big deal , one tank, one leak.  Then thru none MSM stories you see pieces surface of massive die offs of seals, bottom dwellers, polar bears with sores and loss of hair ,you know the typical stuff you read about the effects of radiation on live critters.

On further investigation you find stories that from day one 300 million gallons of radioactive leakage of high level radioactive water run into the pacific.  The attached stories indicate that a more is happening than we are being told about.(not an unusual event) Some of the bits of info are troublesome like half the newborn seals are dying , bottom dwellers dying off, radioactive fish of many species being caught.

What's the truth of the extent of the problem, who really knows, those that do ain't talking which alone tells me it is approaching my worst fears.. It's a possibility that all 4 reactors have broken containment even though they say that isn't true.. Too much that they have no control over is surfacing one source at a time...One thing you can take to the bank, it is much worse than we have been told , how bad, it's up to our own imagination to figure.. Meantime here are three attachments that provide some kind of data.  the usual wide eyed critics are not included in these links. Read them and see what you think..

Once the most powerful nation in the world by any measure , today we are but a shadow of our former selfs as seen by the rest of the world.  We have done everything in our power to destroy what America was , financially , militarily,industrially , and the worst  morally.

A nation that in the past aided by the rules of war suddenly started acting as our enemies of old, torturing people with horrible methods, apprehending by any means possible, locking them up with no charges, no representation , no trials, just detainment for ever with no chance of getting out, citizen and non citizen alike.  The hell of it is these folks could be considered the lucky ones, the others blown away by nice little drone toy guided by someone in a nice air conditioned office far from the field of battle.  The collateral damage of this kind of war goes unmeasured except possibly by the PTSD rate of the drone pilots(worse than actual pilots).  Who now can see the carnage created by their handicraft, damage they can actually see from their arm chair.  Men , women and children blown to bits and bleeding right in front of them in living color.

Our efforts on the battle field have not ended in victories except in you think it was the terrorists goal to bankrupt America , which they have successfully done. The Iraq war we were lied into fighting by the President himself and Afghanistan we should have just know better than put a large force on the ground there and Obama has even increased those forces and it will not be a victory when we eventually leave.  We were not allowed to leave troops in Iraq and odds are we will not be allowed to stay in Afghanistan I hope.

The world depended on the stability of the dollar as far back as you can see, but now , one by one they are backing out of a dollar based economy  and have started using other currencies as their trading medium.   At the same time they (being China in the lead) have started selling off their trillions of T-bills in exchange for gold.  Less and less countries buying our debt will force the Federal Reserve to print more and more dollars, till they reach a point where they are limited by inflation ramping up.  Paul Craig Roberts in this article states that after they stop printing they will have to raid pension of funds of everyone by various means till that bunch of folks will have nothing left.  We have seen this done already in other countries where they even raided you cash in the banks.

Of course as the above rolls out the plight of the working man gets worse and worse , more and more people are left without a way to survive and when their numbers rise who knows what will happen.  Considering that you start to understand why their is a Northern Command with 40,000 troops being trained in city warfare, why Homeland Security has bought 1.6 billion rounds of ammo owns tanks and other heavy weapons and police departments across the country are armed like Special Forces.  They are preparing for the worse while we are left helpless.

The timing for this mess of course is not predictable in any reliable fashion.  If you believe that this will happen and probably soon (within a few years, some say 2014, others are saying 2016) the truth is nobody really knows.  All  we can do is watch the world and see what unfolds, their will be little we can do from actually stopping it once it starts to roll .  What we will be left to deal with is the aftermath.

So much of our world as presented is a total sham.  All the moneyed folk are cheating , lying, breaking laws with nothing serious happening to them. All the little guys are being ripped to shreds and driven to the brink.  I believe the moneyed folks have a huge error is their thinking they will be bypassed by the carnage that is coming. They will find out when it comes time to the government to grab stuff they will go to the guys who have the most stuff and that ain't your or me.  Won't they be surprised.  We will still have our learned abilities to rebuild our country and they will only have us to feed them..

The Japanese are doomed!  45% of women up to 24 say they are not interested in sex or find it repulsive, about 25% of men say the same.  Their birth rate has been falling for years and if this is true it will fall a lot more.  What is going on here?   Lots of funky answers but where is the truth.

In the  US surveys say married couples are not doing much better.  25% say they have sex once a week but most say once a month ,maybe less. If true ,why the change.  I'm an older than dirt but in my younger days I sure would have been wondering what the hell was wrong in my marriage if the urge only showed up once a month or less.  Damn folks I'm no sex manic (wait maybe I was) at least my todays standard I was.

I must be old fashioned but I think it should be much more than that.  You can see all kinds of excuses , both work, both are tired, money troubles, etc.  all sound like excuses to me.  Seems  in the good ole days I could crawl into the house dead tired after a 16 hour day and a flash of a leg could make the tiredness go away.

Only conclusion I can make it must be in the water or these folks need help.


We all know the site is broken and you have heard a million words saying what went wrong and of course who is to blame.  The only thing of course you haven't heard is the truth.

Progressive talk radio in ten minutes last night gave me the one clue I needed to expand my understanding of the problem.. It's really simple , too simple to have been screwed up so badly.Here's where they went wrong.  The lead CONTRACTOR(there's a clue here) CGI got the orginal contract for 93 million bucks to design and coordinate the whole deal.. Problem is there were 55 other contractors involved building various parts of the system.  As the story goes the contract was let in 2011 actual work didn't begin till this spring due to the controlling agency didn't have the criteria for how the site was to work developed till then. So they had 6 months to put together a very complex system with a whole bunch of input parts that of course didn't mesh with the main site.

I have worked in government for at least 30 years of my life and have seen the effects of contracting out first hand, to say they never were successful would be putting it mildly. A simple example from my experience, a plant I worked at contracted out the janitor services (which were previously done by two government employees taking care of 6 power plants) all of which were always spotless.   The contractors did a very bad job and had no onsite supervision.  It got to the point where you had to dump your own waste basket..  They finally got outed when an outside inspection showed plants in horrible condition and   the reason was obvious..  Various other attempts to outsource were as successful.

Myself and one government programmer designed and built a fairly comprehensive trouble reporting system both of us on our first venture into this kind of stuff and we spent a lot of time in development before we put it on line.  Of course it blew up at first as the programmer had never worked with operators at that level and couldn't believe we would do things that I said would happen.  We picked the one guy to try the system that I know would do the things I described in advance and he performed brilliantly.  He blew it up first try.  In the end it was very successful and ran unchanged for at least 10 years.

Back to Health.com.   With input being designed by 55 other companies and the lead company having only six month to put it all together , it is no wonder it failed.  The fact that they put  it on line is a question I can't answer, I can only say I wouldn't have done it, it wasn't ready and easily demonstrated that it wasn't ready for prime time.  The embarrassment of not being ready would have been easier to take than all the flack generated by it's failure.

Now comes the disgusting part folks.   The original contract was for 93 million to date we have almost 400 million in the project and it doesn't work.  It proved one thing to me that I have always known contracting out is not the way to do anything important or anything else.  Your own workforce controlled by you , directed by you always is cheaper. When bean counters get involved you know it's going to get screwed up.  Cost is not everything but that's how they sell their stuff , they never tell you what it is going to cost you in the end when you have to fix the fuck ups.

The current mood since 1980 and the glorious Ronald Regan and his government is the problem the country has went down hill.  Contracting out was there answer to everything and everything is screwed up.  From finance to wars to health care everything they have contracted out has failed.  It's time to go back to competent people who are inhouse and know there stuff.

Senator Inhofe says under Obama Care he would have died because he went in to a colon procedure and found out he needed a quadruple bypass and under the Obama system he would have had to wait at least six months.   First off he is under Medicare and would have been zipped to the emergency room and operated on immediately or at worst had appliances that kept him going till the operating room.

Now I know this from personal experience.  I had a quad 25 years ago and believe me they did not screw around getting me prepped.  In my case they had to fly in a chestcracker and was their bright and early the next morning and I had the procedure that day.

In an emergency situation the senator described they would probably not even asked if he had insurance.

So I would advise Senator Inhofe  to stop telling flat out lies.  It would help the wound they have created to scab over,, healing is another matter.


It appears that our current crop of cops thinks there only line of defense lies on their quick draw capabilities.  It goes like this "stop" bang bang bang now your stopped.  In many occurrences of late cops have killed people and now animals as their first line of defense.  No more restraint, pepper spray , or talking , just go for their guns and put the subject dead.

We need to fire cops who exhibit such bad judgment and purge the system of these quick draw specialists.

As noted before on this blog, the word is out that both sides of the aisle are going to embrace and include cuts to the social programs in the upcoming budget negotiations.  The President is on record supporting some of these cuts.  Surface AFL-CIO to take a blunt pledge to stand against any member of congress who supports these cuts.  Other unions are joining in to take that stand.  I ask you to be on the alert to find any way you can help with this fight.  Although writing letter and making phone calls and signing positions appear to be ineffective , if done in huge volumes cannot be ignored.  You will see lot of opportunities to participte , so join the fight.  See the statement from the union HERE.

The link below is a presentation by a couple of very rich guys giving a presentation to a group of young college folk that contains some of the most disingenuous slides I have ever seen.  These slides claim that us old guys 65 and over are stealing from the young through our entitlement programs.  Sure the graphs are impressive and of course to show they are selling facts when the truth is they are selling manure.  Fast forward through this you tube show far enough to see the graphs and then you will understand why I am upset with the bullshit they are spreading. HERE

There fixes are of course the standard conservative line, cut entitlements , income test SS, reduce Medicare benefits and of course lower corporate tax rates to 0.  (same line these are the job creators)
I won't bore you with more charts then they have I could but I won't because the truth is pretty simple and the fixes are even simpler.   To fix SS you only have to raise the limit from $113000 to every nickle on income earner.  All earned income should pay and included in that earned income is a transaction tax on every trade of stocks or bonds made.  That fixes SS forever and hurts no one .

To fix medical costs the obvious answer is to go to a single payer system as they have in the rest of the industrialized world.

If you take the average of all these you end up with an average of about 8% of gdp and that is for coverage for everybody for everything.

Of course they will scream we gotta cut , we gotta cut.  OK , here's what you cut. All  corporate subsidies and tax breaks, confiscate all corporate funds stored off shore tax evasion.  Close a majority of overseas bases.  Cut the military to half it's current size. Stop all funding of operations around the world to take down governments we don't like, We could  start with Cuba and Venezuela and clean up the other one by one.  Make it mandatory for the government run health system to negotiate drug prices using the VA model.

That's just off the top of my head, there are many ,many more things that can be cut before you screw with the entitlement programs.

It's time to fight back!

Greenspan has a new book which highlights just how clueless he was and still is.  He likes to claim his low interest rates had nothing to do with the housing bubble.   Partly true, the low interest rates coupled with crooked bankers and mortgage brokers using low interest rates as a hook to snag unsuspecting home buyers into the system so they could collect fees and sell derivatives that bundles of these goodies would fail , dragging in the real money.

Now the brilliant one says that entitlements have led to a decrease in savings.  Oh shit, Alan how fucking stupid can  one guy be?   It couldn't be that hundreds of thousands of good paying blue collar jobs have gone overseas to be replaced by part time and low wage jobs.  Could the fact that half the children in school are classified as living below the poverty level..or could it be that half of the working stiffs have a family income below 50K  .

From Volker to Greenspan to Bernake the finances of this country have been led  from one blooming idiot to another.  All free market types they have brought us to the sands of destruction we are wallowing in right now.  All served presidents that put forth different pictures of what they were but underneath  each and every one screwed the working man in well hidden plans from the naive public who for a time believed the bullshit they threw out.

As pointed out above Greenspan that is touted as this genius believes savings are down because entitlements are to high.  Somebody needs to tie down my steam  reliefs before they pop.  You can hope all these supposed learned men actually know better , but they keep undoing any idea that they have a clue what is happening in the real world.  A world we sit in an watch the EU destroyed by sweeps of austerity plans ripping apart lifestyles that have existed for a very long time.

So here we sit in America with a supposed democratic president (Obama) yet to show one democratic hair rumored to be ready to negotiate away  parts of the entitlements keeping hundreds of thousands out of starvation .  Why, to satisfy a small (30 or so) nut job teabaggers wanting to destroy the entitlements by insisting on austerity measures that have proven just in the last few years , over and over again they bring disaster.  All this negotiation to Obama care at best a questionable program that keeps the insurance companies in the trough getting fatter and fatter.  Do the good parts justify the program when so many bad parts exist.  Your call.  But I don't think we should take away from the entitlement programs to save parts of the plan.

The president has the trump card in his hand, They have stretched the negations out into an election year putting the house seats in an unenviable spot.  Do they dare shut the government down, or let us go into default, I doubt that even they are not stupid.  So if entitlements are reduced , look straight at Obama as it will be his fault alone.


I have been taking notice lately that the working man has no one operating in his defense.  It came to the forefront to me when I saw the Detroit unions back the new non elected management  of the city. Now the news on the street tonight that Obama administration is once again preparing to turn their backs on the working man under the disguise of managing the deficit. The word is the process of this new committee will take aim at things like Social Security , Medicare, Medicaid, nutrition programs, infrastructure repair and other programs aimed at helping the working men and woman of this country.  At the same time insisting on huge new tax breaks for corporations.  While keeping in place the sequester cuts.  Of course they will restore military spending, spy money, and Homeland security funds.

Notice if you will that their is no mention of of negotiating the drugs prices in the Medicare program, restoring tax rates on corporations and the top tax brackets.  There should be huge cuts to the military budget as force reduction is being carried out right now.  With no future enemy in sight we do not need the forces we have.

The hell of it is there are easy ways to fix SS and Medicare but you can bet your last dime they won't go their..If you compare the US cost to other industrial countries you find that all spend a smaller percentage of GDP on health care then we do, and their insurance covers everybody.  While we just spent days without a government debating who we were going to screw out of health care.
The chart below shows the cost per person in various plans you can clearly see on wins the most costly prize..We can fix this by going to single payer.

In a few short months we will do it all over again and as the link above says this time they will be going after SS , Medicare and all programs aiding the disadvantaged.  Which is you think about it may be exactly what the Tea Party freaks had in mind.

The US overall is becoming a very dismal place to live for a lot more people than ever before.  Yes my friends we are going backward at a faster and faster rate.  When half of all school children live below the poverty rate what more evidence do you need to see we are heading for third country status as a whole.

Yet , the nation as a whole sets on their butts, watching reality shows on TV, or Twittering, or messaging  or wasting their time on Facebook instead of paying attention to the screwing we are getting.  Without action it will be more of the same election after election.

So my solution is we get busy and pick a team to run in 16 that has the brains and the guts to get us onto the right track...My pick are Elizabeth Warren and Allen Grayson as independents.  Why Independents   , because if she chooses to run Hillary will be the democratic choice and in my estimation that means more of the same.

OK dear friends I have been outed and I am now confessing I am a confirmed addict.  No , fools not heroin, or crack, or week.. I am addicted to Oreo cookies.  A college study using rats  found that Oreo's lit up the same parts of the brain as the real drugs only more so.  To further prove that we are a lot like rats they opened the cookies  and ate the middle first.  Ahh back to the good ole days when a whole bag of cookies was a snack, of course washed down with real milk.



About 30% of the electorate claim to be a conservative, or at worst a far right fundamentalist.  So let's see if you really are.   Every election the right drags out it's traditional theme song..GAGG, Guns, Abotion, Gays and Guns to rally their troops.  But the question in my mind are you really that far right.  Take this little quiz and then tell me how many of them you agree with.. Don't identify yourself individually just verify that you consider yourself right wing.
OK , here we go.

1. I believe everyone should have good health care. (not necessarily Obama care) .

2. I wouldn't have an abortion but think it's your individual right to decide that.

3. I believe in birth control so every family has a choice of how big they want to be.

4.I believe the earth is older than 6000 years.

5. I believe that Global Warming is real (who caused it be damned)

6. I believe that owning a weapon designed for war should not be legal.

7.Religion should be a private matter decided by each person.

8. I believe that all elections be publicly funded to eliminate the fat cats from buying elections.

9 Gerrymandering should be made illegal and districts should be drawn up by strict geographical rules.

10. I believe that Government should not  be connected to religion in any shape or form..

11.  God should be taken out of the Pledge of Allegiance. It wasn't there when written.

12. I believe that the tax rates should return to pre republican levels so that the more well to do pay a more equal share of the load.

12. Corporations should pay a fixed percentage of profit with no limiting deductions and special tax incentives so that they return to  percentages seen in the past before all the tax breaks.

13. I believe that the United States should not be the policeman for the world.. a roll we have proven we are not good at and all conflicts should be voted on by congress.  You might argue we have to be responsive quickly  ( when has that actually happened)?

14 Considering #13 we could reduce the size of our military to provide for National Security defending our shores from aggression.

15. Higher education should once again be free to all citizens and all past student debt should be forgiven.  ( a trillion bucks would cover the bill) 1/3 of what we spent destroying Iraq.

16. Federal Reserve should be eliminated and a National Bank formed in it's place.  Would  greatly reduce the cost of federal borrowing..

17. Sever ties with Israel so we  don't respond to conflicts they start.

18.  Limit the impact of APAC by limiting campaign contributions and the number of lobbyists any one organization can have.  Public  funded elections would insure this.

19.Quit teaching Creationism is public schools,, It is pure bullshit as any body with a brain can see.

20.Put in place an energy plan for insuring the grid will remain secure in the future.. It would include all manner of energy producing systems .

21. A marriage should be between two people in love , period..

Being in the old guy category makes me pause when I have a negative thought about changes happening around me that for whatever reason I do not participate.  I often wonder it is a function of age or do I really think it is destroying the thinking mind .

A world dominated by  140 character messages (Twitter) and 6 second videos (Vine) when does a person that uses these sources have to time to think of a problem they raise.  If your a reporter you are told to limit your pieces to 300 words or less, not much of a story can be put together with that few words.

The physical world around me is filled with folk who have head down fingers furiously tapping out 140 characters (to say exactly what I am not sure) but they spend most of their waking day tapping away. (I wonder sometimes if they do it when they are asleep) . If their not typing they have their phone active letting  me in on conversations I don't want to here and it clearly must be important because they do it while driving.

Out of all this I think we are shaping a world , that when we are successful will not want to live in.  TV is a wasteland of reality shows where the goal seems to be to destroy your opponent.  God help the viewer if a show becomes popular , because you will soon be swamped by 20 more just like it.  Everything from snake handling religions, to Cajun alligator hunters, all of which are interesting not more than a couple of times.  The ultimate end game is of course a show where a man and a woman unknown to each other are thrown into a nasty piece of ground , bare ass naked , with few supplies and are supposed to survive a week.  From there it's a small leap to Dooms Dayers who are planning to survive the worst case scenario , all well and good, but they seldom point out that someone always has more and better weapons and if you have food they will attempt to get it.

Mean time in the real world , we have a government that is not functional.  A world where your eyes show you we are in the midst of a giant shift in weather patterns , financially a world just waiting to go into another great depression, a country where half the population is not making a living wage, jobs that are gone and might never come back, while the rich are getting richer.

Now there is nothing wrong with being rich , but when  the only way you can get richer is to make other people poorer can only end up a catastrophe.  So it is time for each one of us to stop tweeting and cell phoning and to start thinking about fixing the mess we are in.

Jesus J. Christ here we go again.  Kerry just negotiated an agreement with Karsi to keep troops in Afghanistan after 2014 (fortunately with the exception that the troops will have immunity from prosecution) the deal that broke the Iraq agreement..  The troops could be heard singing this song in the background.

Of all the stupid things this prez has done this comes to the top of the list of things he should not do.  Troops shot in the back by their trainers!  Don't make any sense, nobody has ever done more that donate bodies to a loosing cause.. Some it took longer than other to decide to get the hell out that den of vipers.  Come on PREZ , WAKE THE FUCK UP.

Is like a meth lab- BUBBLE,BUBBLE,  BOOM

Friday, October 4, 2013


Unless you have your head stuck in the sand you must have noticed that a few very rich clans are buying your vote through their various organizations.  Their goals are not just to buy the republican party , their goal is to own the country.  I know you cringe at being a hooker but it may be some comfort to you to know I include myself in that acknowledgement.  No they will never get me to vote republican but they can buy enough votes to buy a president and congress and then it's game over.

Here's a list of who's who is in this nasty little game borrowed  from a Robert Reich blog you can read here.http://robertreich.org/
They include David and Charles Koch (and their front group, “Americans for Prosperity’);  Peter Thiel, leverage-buyout specialist John Childs, investor Howie Rich, Stephen Jackson of the Stevens Group, and executives of JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs, (all behind the “Club for Growth”); and Crow Holdings’ Harlan Crow, shipping magnate Richard Uihlein, and investment banker Foster Friess; executives of MetLife and Philip Morris, and foundations controlled by the Scaife family (all bankrolling “FreedomWorks.”)

Reich points out the above bunch have decided that their man in 2016 is Ted Cruz of Texas, who in my opinion has a snowball chance in hell of  being elected. Don't care who the Dems run Cruz will not win no matter how much money they throw at us.  Here's a site that list's his stand on all issues he has spoken on and finally rates him as far right (no surprise here).  Just a typical God, Abortion, Gays and Guns kind of republican that will get beat every time.

In the last election the republicans identified what they had to do to be competitive and that was get the women, Latino, and black votes, do you see anything in his views stated above that will do  that.. Come on , be honest he is not a winner but that's where the money will flow to get your vote.  Just like the Sarah Palin choice that came from the same group of  men cost you the election Kruz will be the same.

It wasn't a great surprise to me , especially after I saw a republican poll that had Chris Cristy pulling only 4 % . The one republican that I would have at least listened to.

So once again in 2016 you republicans are going to be left with a really shitty choice and yeah I know you won't vote Democratic and I am not sure I will either.  I'm not in love  with Hillary but it looks like that's where the Dem money will be heading.  If their ever was a time for a strong third party candidate 2016 is the time.
