Comcast moving to monopoly over your content.
(3 comments) Comcast is testing the FCC. If it gets away with manipulating one source of competition, movies, how much longer will your VoIP phone ring before Comcast blocks Vonage, Nextiva, Magic Jack and so on? If FCC permits this then maga-ISPS will create a monopoly over everything you want to watch, elimiate choices on who's phone service you want and perhaps wind up charging your for every email you send.

Will November spell the end of our Democracy?
(3 comments) Big business does not spend money unless they expect to get something in return. They don't spend money to elect people to congress who will not do their bidding. Who do they spend their cash to support? Why those people?

Who does the US Chamber work for?
(25 comments) The very basis of our democracy may have been dealt a death blow by the US Supreme Court. Citizens have a right to expect fair and honest elections but the recent "Citizens United" decision has thrown a monkey wrench into our political process. By creating a loop hole for foreign interest to invest in election propaganda, the voice of the people will be severely diluted to the point of silence.

The Conspiracy Too Big for Glenn Beck
(7 comments) No one seems to love a good conspiracy more than Glenn Beck. In order to have a clear view of any conspiracy you need to have a vantage point outside of that very conspiracy which is why I think Beck is missing the grandest of them all...he has wittingly or unwittingly become an integral part of this one.

Avoid the Funeral...vote Left in November
(4 comments) Voters need to pay attention and recognize which party has been blocking progress in the hopes of stalling recovery to assure their political resurrection. Those politicians want people like you and me to blame the wrong people for causing this economic mess while they hide behind a disgusting smoke screen of hate, racism, fear and bigotry and out right lies.

Religion & Using fear to control "White" America.
(11 comments) Bigotry is fast becoming a major tool of the conservative movement because religious conservatives seem to all agree that God makes mistakes and that it is up to them to sort them out and segregate them from other "good" Christians. To me this is not a very Christian attitude toward a fellow human and fellow American. But again, it is a great political tool used to divide us.

(1 comments) States are looking for ways to collect sales tax for purchases made by their citizens. With 14,000 different tax jurisdictions in the US, compliance by small on line business could prove impossible, leading to their demise.

McCain proves his ignorance of economic issues.
I, for one, would rather pay more taxes on a higher income than pay no taxes on poverty level income. It is a fact of life that there is no free ride and we as individuals can't keep borrowing to buy without paying the piper and our government is no different. We can't keep waging war and cutting taxes for the rich. That just leaves the rest of us to pay for the war while the wealthy reap huge profits from that war.
