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.

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.

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.

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?

We used to hope we could count on our laws to protect us by providing appropriate sanctions to deter them from harming us. We count on our lawmakers to be wiser than the masses when they author legislation to protect the public. Sex offender registration laws cause more violence than they prevent.

America's dependence on fossil fuels to move us around began with internal combustion powered cars. Fuel was cheap. We practically stole it from the Arabs until they wised up, now they control how much we pay for fuel.

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.

Something frighting is happening all too often in Congress...the institutionalization of hate directed toward specific groups of people. Hate based legislation is unconstitutional and members of Congress are required to take an oath to uphold our Constitution.

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. Federal laws must be written to protect the mom & pop internet business from extinction.

It is not just the Banks who need help. Send the bail out lower down and let the "little guy" use it to pay the banks their debts. That removes bad paper from the banks and the same money winds up where it went now...except it helps America along the way.
SHARE Wednesday, July 28, 2010 Republicans lies hurt America's future and jobs.
Democrats are and have consistently been better at managing our economy for the betterment of the average American. Why do voters continue to buy the lie from the right who have always mangled our economy?

There was a great rush to bail out the rich, yet now nothing is being done to help the rest of America. Where is the moratorium on foreclosures and the cap on excessive bank fees and so on...where is something for the rest of America?
(4 comments) SHARE Tuesday, September 7, 2010 Avoid the Funeral...vote Left in November
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.

(2 comments) SHARE Wednesday, June 18, 2008 FL Gov Crist. No Oil Wells. Alternatives
America needs to become LESS dependent on oil. All drilling for more does, is continue that dependence. We need alternatives. No one will provide alternatives as long as the oil companies can continue to suck huge profits out of the ground and keep pushing prices up.
(1 comments) SHARE Friday, September 26, 2008 Emergency Legislation: Bail out !
Protection against foreclosures needs to be priority to provide breathing room to develop an orderly and workable solution to the Wall Street mess. Urge the Senate to pass temporary moratorium on foreclosures to give them that time to think.

Further proof of how dangerous Bush is to American law and values. He continues to thumb his nose at anything the Constitution says if it does not meet with his personal approval.
SHARE Tuesday, June 10, 2008 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.
