Up In Arms

“Their paranoid fear of a possible dystopic future prevents us from addressing our actual dystopic present. We can’t even begin to address 30,000 gun deaths that are actually in reality happening in this country every year because a few of us must remain vigilant against the rise of imaginary Hitler.” –Jon Stewart Imagine you are Hitler.  – Read the full article

Freedom of Speech vs. Wall Street’s Interests

“There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.”  –Henry David Thoreau You know that civil rights are in dire straits when Rage Against the Machine starts to seem eerily prescient. Documents obtained in a Freedom of Information request by The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund reveal that the nationwide violent crackdown on Occupy Wall Street last fall was not only highly organized by the FBI and local police, but was orchestrated by Wall Street itself.  – Read the full article

Atlas Whined

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession  with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.  – Read the full article

It’s D-Day in the Class War

“We cannot negotiate with those who say, ‘What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable.'” —John F. Kennedy On November 6th, 60 million Americans waited in line to yank the monkey wrench from Congress.  We reappointed our Democratic general for another four years.  – Read the full article

Got Jobs? Not if Republicans Have Their Way…

On the heels of what is being chided as the best National Convention in history (DNC2012), the jobs numbers are out.   Opponents would have people believe that less than expected jobs numbers are   all Obama’s fault.  On the contrary, Obama and Democratic members of congress have repeatedly tried to pass comprehensive job creation legislation.   – Read the full article

OWS: Glorifying the Mantle of Ignorance

As Doug Marquardt has documented in his series, “OWS is Not Our Ally”, the Occupy movement believes: “…the President has to give them a reason to vote, he’s no different than Romney, he’s a corporate puppet, etc. It’s as if, in their imaginary utopia, they think a President can actually please all Democrats.” It started out as a swell of anger across a broad spectrum of Americans, that coincided with the frustrations of people across the world. – Read the full article

OWS is not our Ally – Part VI

In part 6 of my ongoing series I’m going to throw a conspiracy theory out there with the question: Has Occupy been bought by conservatives? Of course, I have absolutely no proof of this – its just a theory. But it would be the ultimate strategy for conservatives, the crowd with unlimited resources; pay to divide and conquer the left wing. – Read the full article

Occupy is not our ally – Part V

Part 5 of my ongoing series showing Dems why the Occupy movement and its members are not our ally. If you read earlier posts in the series (and I hope you will), you’ll see in Occupy members’ own words that they despise Democrats and have no intention of voting with us. – Read the full article

OWS is not our ally – Part IV

Part 4 in my ongoing series urging Dems to give up the hope that Occupy members will vote with us in November. As I’ve been showing in this series with quotes from Occupy groups across the country, they are clear on this point; they tell supporters to vote for a third-party candidate or not vote, all but guaranteeing Republican-controlled government. – Read the full article

OWS is not our ally – Part III

Part 3 in my ongoing series on why Dems need to acknowledge that the Occupy movement does not support Democrats and they intend to vote third-party to punish Dems, effectively electing Republicans. We need stop hoping that they will have a last-minute epiphany and vote with us in November and focus on getting-out-the-vote efforts for our true supporters. – Read the full article

We are the 9 percent

You may have read my ongoing series urging Dems to face the facts and acknowledge that OWS members are Dem-haters, not our allies, and intend to vote against Democrats to send a message, thereby electing Republicans. When it comes to politics, and in life, I support those who support “me and mine”. – Read the full article
