Brain Dead Taxpayers Subsidize B.P's Recklessness Right Wing Troglodytes are not smart enough to be in positions of power. Their corporate masters will remain perfectly willing to sacrifice enormous quantities of marine life, and the livelihoods of tens of thousands who depend on that life, in the interests of profit.

Why Do Americans Pretend They Have Government? The Office of the Presidency, the Congress and the Supreme Court are practically useless. If government were functionally effective the U.S. wouldn't be decaying like an overripe grape in November.

Obama's Squandered Presidency As cautious and hesitant as a tortoise, Obama has squandered the opportunity that fortune so generously gave him. Such opportunity is rare, and will not present again in the foreseeable future

Obama's Short And Unremarkable Presidency Obama, if he doesn't start satisfying his base, will not be re-elected. He is steadily squandering whatever goodwill he had earned by his promises on the campaign trail. Many of his supporters feel justifiably betrayed, as he devotes himself to repaying his corporate campaign contributors.

The Liars Reign Supreme As The Nation Withers Without an inspired motive that attempts a renewal of purpose, the incomprehensible static of lies and distortions are killing the soul of a nation that can't seem to rise above its self prescribed hubris. Entropy becomes the norm, and the end is met.

Banks, Lawn Darts, And Human Folly The U.S. has the most expensive and one of the least effective systems of health care in the world, and the insurers would not have it any other way. If they can stop meaningful health care legislation from becoming law, and reform tort law at the same time, their fondest dreams will be realized.

Revolution? Or The Realization Of Orwell's Vision? At this point, only revolution will re-establish the democratic state. But revolution is extremely unlikely. Many Americans are so ignorant, uninformed and timid, they can't bring themselves to vote their criminal representatives out of office.

Blind American And The Exploitation Of Entrenched Ignorance Right Wing Media's contribution to the firm entrenchment of ignorance, and this point stupidity is not too strong a word, among Americans has paid of handsomely. It has also turned Obama, and presumable any future Democratic President, into a kind of token, republican fetch and carry.

Americans Richly Deserve Their Fate A large number of Americans have fully supported the decline of what was once a socially just, and economically powerful nation. They have responded to every political promise of tax cuts as if the many government services, and infrastructural systems, were free.

Melted Wings - Icarus And The Democrats Obama has been permitted his brief moment at the pinnacle of power which, unbelievably, he has chosen to squander. He has, after an amazingly short time, digressed to comic relief. Why would a man devote his entire adult life to politics, then rise to the highest level of his profession, only to cower before the advance of a weakened and outnumbered enemy?

And It's 1,2,3 ... What Did We Get Elected For? It's popularly believed there is no difference between the republicans and democrats. This is not true. The republicans, right, wrong or indifferent at least believe in themselves, and have the will and determination to fight for their beliefs, while the democrats are lumps, and not aware of what or who they're supposed to represent. No one respects people who won't stand up for themselves

1886 - When The American Experiment Died The American experiment began its fall into corporate dominance when Chief Justice Waite's Supreme Court ruled, in 1886, that corporations would enjoy the same Constitutional protections as all Americans. That court's decision signaled the beginning of the end of representative democracy.
