About Me

very liberal and progressive

Journal Archives

I will support Hillary Clinton, but a word to Bill

everytime I see or hear bill Clinton cozying up to the bush family I cringe and remember why I shifted my support from Hillary to Obama in 2008.

Bill - you are judged by the company you keep. Talking to the bush family as an honorary bush or a 'brother from another mother' bullshit only makes you look opportunistic and treacherous. The people who supported you do not support the bush cartel.

do us all a favor and stay left and don't hide the horror and treachery that was committed under the bush regime.

Poll: What are your politics

Which side of the political spectrum are you on? (expecting most to be left!)

good point. But Obama had a mandate for change

in his first term he went conservative and alienated a lot of people who wanted big change.

- he should have taken a more progressive stand on weed
- should have been faster on healthcare and immigration
- should have gone as far left as bush had gone right
- should not have let bush's crimes be swept away
- should have talked to the people more

remember the difference in his performance between the first and second debates? I think he's spent more time governing as he was in debate 1 and a few times he's governed like in debate 2 (e.g. his recent immigration stand).

repugs will bend and destroy the law for their means. if we can't even show passion and fierceness for what we believe, then they will continue to steamroll over us.

i think it's more than darwin

it's the bloodsucking people profiting from the gun industry that have convinced so many people that they need to be awass in guns and to show their patriotism through guns. So many seem to think that loving their guns means loving their country.

what a wet dream for any marketer.

Pictures of officer wilson do not show major injuries - so he shot a young black male multiple times

this is not what armed police officers should be doing.

Brown was not threatening anyone. No one else was in danger. So how did Wilson who purportedly called for backup get into a situation that he had to shoot an unarmed man multiple times.

the acceptance of this tragedy by so many is saddening and frightening and smacks truly of something more inhumane.

Do stupid people watch fox news or does fox news make people stupid?

Just asking

it's disengenious to argue that people are arguing all muslims are violent

the problem was summed up well in another thread. The underlying tenents support violence which is why so many of the community are extremist, support extremism, condone extremism, and don't outright condemn it and ostracize it in every form. The fact so many young muslims are willing to become jihadi's, after growing up in a western country, further suggests that something underlying is driving the situation.

remember the mendelson brothers who shot their parents to death?

their lawyer wendy Abrahamson was on politically incorrect taking offence to this statement. she said that people should be saying that the brothers only fired their guns. they did not kill their parents. the parents happened to get in the way of the bullets.

the audience booed. she's never had the same public exposure since that ridiculous comment.

the gun lover arguments are similar. parse words and ask for specifics and reject the argument because the gun control proponent didn't get the descriptions right.

we should ask for the same from traffic cops. precisely describe the car, paint, engine, type of gasoline or no ticket.

Liberal policies are good for creating wealth

that is more broadly shared.

conservative asshole policies take the wealth created by liberal policies and shit them to the few at the top.

your are right and that is the irony

I think the media is a loss leader for the ruling class. it is intended to brainwash the public - the simplistic thinking of the repug masses and many of the independents - to keep them uninformed. Whether the news programs make money is not important because ignorance allows the ruling class to make more money and continue to rule.
