I am a Musician, political Junkie, Father, Husband, who cares very much about the United States of America and what is being done to the Ideals and citizens of this great Nation.
I want to restore the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to what the founders of this nation intended to protect us from.
I was born in Niagara Falls, N.Y. and I now reside in Florida. I am tired of the media being manipulated by Faux News and right wing propaganda that leading our Democracy into the moral and financial abyss.
I want the American people to wake up and take back this country to restore it to be a beacon of freedom and liberty to the world again.

The most recent FISA bill is an affront to the rule of law that the founders of this great nation wanted to protect us from.
SHARE Thursday, April 3, 2008 Does America have long to remain a democracy?
We have let the politicians dismantle the Constitution. They have broken the antitrust laws that Teddy Roosevelt put in place to protect us, and now we have the oil companies making the energy policies and the 6 giant media corporations controlling the information we receive on the main stream sources

This financial crisis is not rocket science. It's just like the obesity crisis. It ain't the good carb bad carb, the good fats bad fats, it's the calories stupid. If you eat more than you burn you get fat period.
SHARE Friday, January 14, 2011 The State of the Union 2011
Even though with both the left and right criticizing Obama he still has accomplished a lot and I believe he will do even more as we begin the second half of his first term. I wanted to vent in angry indignation in my writing how I was not satisfied with the progression of change but as I researched my point of view I have found that Obama hasn't done so bad after all.

"I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore" was the anthem in the 1976 film Network. I'm going to make this my anthem and do something to take my two cents out of the coffers of the to big to fail bankers we just bailed out who have controlled the financial policies of this country since the Reagan years.

Well apparently Bloomberg News has given us another reason to get rid of the Federal Reserve. Lost in all the noise surrounding the "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" we have some news on financial reform. On March 19, Bloomberg won its lawsuit against the Federal Reserve for information that could expose which "too big to fail" banks in the United States are zombie banks not dead just merely rotting.
SHARE Tuesday, October 7, 2008 Spotlight on McCain-Palin Associations
The Republican's will be getting the blame of this economic crisis we are in by the independent voters this election. The only way that they can take the conversation from the issues that face the Nation like the war, health care, social security, and the economy, is by changing the subject.

We have a humanitarian disaster bigger than the one already occurring on the ground in Haiti. When the rainy season comes, with all the tropical storms and hurricanes that come plowing through this area every summer, we can count on a disaster that could dwarf the death toll from this earthquake.

I was on my gig on Saturday night playing the blues in a bar. The regular bunch of guys and dolls are in the audience and on the break somehow the talk turned to politics. Low and behold I get from to reasonably normal and intelligent people to Ditto head dummies. From the Coultergeist calling Barack H. Obama "B Hussein Obama" to coworkers emailing Obama the Muslim pictures and stories linking him with al-Queda.

Well maybe it is a little clearer why the first thing Pelosi did after she became speaker of the house was to take impeachment off the table.

They are swiftboating Obama and if he and Biden don't stop using the rope a dope tactic like Mohammed Ali did to wear-out his opponents, they will get KO'd just like Kerry and they will be left in November scratching their heads and saying, are the American people really that blind.

So let's tar and feather those nasty oil company executives for taking advantage of us poor working stiffs. But wait, it's not the oil companies pulling a fast one, it's the Wall Street speculators, some of the recipients of billions of dollars in taxpayers' bailout money.

You know what gets me angry? It's watching Sarah Palin talk about how she is a real American. By her definition myself and more than half of the country must be fake Americans.

There is a lot of trash talk from the Right and Left sides these days. From the liberal blogs to the Glenn Limbaugh's. The problem with politics in AmeriKa today is that there is the Red party and the Blue party but there doesn't seem to be a Red, White, and Blue party.

It seems that the sorry excuse of a president, George W can go over to Israel and label democrats as in favor of appeasement of terrorists. For the first time, I somewhat agree with the Neanderthal in the White House.
(2 comments) SHARE Thursday, November 6, 2008 Now let's see if Obama can unite a country in serious fiscal trouble.
America faces several serious fiscal challenges. Deficits are running rampant, the economy has weakened, Social Security is unsound and Medicare health care spending is growing and will continue to put immense pressure on the budget. Borrowing by the federal government will reach unsustainable levels soon. The tax policy will need a major overhaul and Obama and congress will have to take steps to confront these issues.

SHARE Thursday, March 5, 2009 Enough is enough stop the bailouts and start the Nationalization
Here we go again more bad news from A.I.G. For the last 30 years both the Democrats and Republicans gutted the basic laws and enforcement i.e.: financial regulations, anti-trust prosecutions that prevented financial institutions from becoming as we have been told "too big to fail" and David Sirota said in his latest column If It's Too Big to Fail, It's Too Big to Be Private.
SHARE Wednesday, November 28, 2007 Are We In the Twilight of the Great America
George W Bush has opened the flood gates of ruin on this once great nation. While still powerful unless we do an about face in the next presidency we will be mirroring the decline of the British Empire.

SHARE Wednesday, October 17, 2007 "We have met the enemy and he is us." Pogo
Today is a day that the American people should mark on their calendars as the day the terrorists won. On this day October 17, 2006 Mr. Bush signed the Military Commission Act of 2006. In this horrible piece of legislation, the right of habeas corpus was affectively stripped from the U.S. Constitution.

This email is from a Neo-Convict group called Freedoms Watch and maybe the name of this group should be called Watch Freedoms Disappear. We can expect the same type of horse crap from this group as you saw in 2004 from the Swift Boaters for Truth in the 2004 election.

Last month the fear monger who still illegally occupies the White House, tried to bluff his way into getting the House to grant immunity to the Telecom industry for illegally spying on American citizens./
Enough of you patriots out there said enough is enough and told your congressmen to stand up and protect the 4th Amendment to the Constitution. You told them that we want protection from the government spying.

We have to look at our energy policies with future generations in mind. The Bush / Cheney administration has bankrupted this country. They did nothing to address America's dependence on foreign oil. Their reckless spending, preemptive war, and war profiteering by the friends of this administration, has put America in debt so far who knows how long it will take to recover.

(1 comments) SHARE Tuesday, October 16, 2007 The Neo-Convicts keep up the call to arms to attack IRAN.
The way to handle Iran is through containment and deterrence. Some say containment is unpredictable and risky, but after dealing with this administrations disastrous occupation of Iraq, look at the unintended, uncontrollable consequences of this war, is it wise to start another preventive war with the logically challenged planners of this Iraq war.
