Rep. Issa Doing What We Democrats Should Have Done

Americans lost their lives in the vain quest for Iraqi WMD while Bush and his fellow travelers sent us into a deficit creating Republican social engineering experiment in Iraq.  Did Obama try to investigate this or push Congress to investigate this? No all you heard is the wimpy purr of pussy cats while Obama tried to get Democrats and Republicans to sing “Kum-bye-yah”

Progressive Commentator Ed Schultz gets all fired up in the video clip below about Rep. Issa’s plans to persecute Obama when he takes over the new Republican dominated House Oversight Committee. Remember when Obama took office and decided to drop the investigations of George Bush and how we got into Iraq? (see the video below).

American Exceptionalism: GOP Playing Patriot While Screwing America

Two Years ago President Obama, in a primary debate, put down the other contestants by saying “their ideas were mere replays of late night discussions in the college dormitories of the 1960’s”. Well I was in those late night dorm discussions and it is to bad Obama wasn’t around then because he would recognize the latest incarnation of the conservative game of “playing patriot”. But then again a REAL Progressive, which Obama is not, would answer these sunshine patriots of the right with some counter rhetoric!

Why don’t these same big mouth Republicans believe in making a buck in America instead of shipping their investments and our jobs overseas. Frequently these singers of the  “Corporate Elitist Globalization Internationale“ even ship our jobs and their investments to the very enemies of America of the 1960’s!  They even ship our jobs to Vietnam while our dead soldiers decay in the ground below the land they invest in! What happened to all the dominoes?

GOP: Bankruptcy Is Good For States But Not Individuals

Republicans want to allow state governments to go bankrupt so they can destroy civil service unions! Strange isn’t it that they fought tooth and nail to make it harder for individuals to declare bankruptcy! Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is leading the fight. There is a method to their madness. They want to empower the corporate class to siphon off the life blood of middle class Americans.

The issue is to increase not just the finances of the rich but to undermine the security of the vast Silent Majority of Americans –  our great Middle Class! When the unions are undermined then the power of the corporate class interests grows since progressive politicians receive support from unions! With less better paying jobs available, the wages of all Americans can be reduced while the profits of our social betters increase! Ah yes this is what they call “Freedom”! The freedom to serve the Economic Royalists and their right wing social engineering experiment!

Obama Signs Don’t Ask – Don’t Tell Repeal

When confronted with racial discrimination in the military President Harry Truman took the poll data concerning views of American servicemen and then just laid it aside to do the right thing. The reason for that is that human rights are not subject of majority confirmation. They are rights – period!

Amazing isn’t it that people want to serve and fight in these two wars yet conservatives have tried to undermine their rights while backing the rights of “corporations as persons”! Then there is the other meaning of “Don’t Ask –  Don’t Tell”! What am I referring to? Well George Bush’s record in the National Guard which he never finished.

The news media follows the guideline of “Don’t Ask” and “Don’t Tell” concerning former President Bush’s military record.

Dump The Wimp Obama In The Primary

I hope Senator Bernie Sanders or Howard Dean will announce a primary challenge to Obama. My preference is for a Sanders/Dean ticket. But regardless the time has come. Barrack Obama’s worldview does not include the testosterone of wheel chair restricted Franklin Delano Roosevelt! President Obama does not have the guts to go to the American people, as did FDR, and talk about the “Economic Royalists” and the evils of “Organized Money”! Instead Obama is a threat to social security!
