If Jay Leno can renege on his promise not to lay off writers currently on strike, I think it is time that the writer's strikers support a change of regimes in the USA. I will support writers and all those interested in improving upon the economic status quo Americans have suffered under for far too long.
As of yesterday, I announced that I was running for President of the United States in the Iowa Caucus. I have received a sort of confirmation from the e-Republicans in Iowa just today. Mine is a low budget campaign of ideas meant to return the Republican Party to the era of 1980 when guys like John Anderson could run and take a good percentage of the Progressive Republican and Progressive Democrat vote. (We also voted for Nancy Kassebaum in my home state back in those years, too.)
America and the world need to have a better discussion in the Republican corner in both times of war and in times of (War) Budgets run-amok.
Americans need to have Republicans who are going to demand that leaders not only "talk the talk" but "actually bring values and honor" to the White House and transform business as usual in Congress.
What happened to standards of honesty we esteemed back when WE ALL got Nixon out of the White House in 1974
Over 3 decades ago, the so-called Moral majority messed up a generation of Americans by telling them, "It's not the economy stupid!"
Come on! All Americans are related-not just the wealthiest, most connected and most powerful!
Stop pandering to those who focus on "logos" words but have no real soul nor heart.
Those messed-up Republicans and Moral Majority types claimed back in the 1980s that the key was to blindly bless the Gods of Shock Capitalism and Trickle Down economics.
Recall how Republicans back then had gumption in the 1970s through 1980.
Back then , even George Herbert Walker Bush wasn't afraid to call a spade-a-spade and explained clearly that REAGANOMICS was simply voodoo economics and wishful thinking.
Enough of this outmoded capitalism which brought America horrible bust and boom cycles from 1981 through 1992!
That was the Reagan model-it was a loser and didn't get jobs and training nor long-term opportunities for the 21st century for American workers or for American employers within the geographical USA.
Our quality of life dropped. Our purchasing power continued to decline.
