Democrats Have To Be More Aggressive

Wow Obama actually spoke up! Big deal he wasted an entire year being “Super Wimp”! Republicans know how to go on the offensive and it is about time that Democrats learn to do the same! As I mentioned in my prior post, some conservatives are talking about gaining control of the House so they can use the House of Representatives’ Constitutional power of the “purse strings” to de-fund Health Care Reform! Nancy Pelosi did not want to de-fund the Iraqi War using the same technique. If she did then the war would have ended two years before Obama became President.

Once again we hear the “mantra” of Democrats, “MEOW…. MEOW…..MEOW”. When will liberals go on the offensive? Well I just heard Ed Schultz tackle a favorite issue of mine. That issue is “Conservative News Media Biases”. Yes you read that correctly! For too long liberals have allowed conservatives and Republicans to paint the news media as a liberally biased! (See the video below).

#HCR: Obama Great Victory?

Please explain to me why we had to wait till now for this watered down law? Obama wanted to have a Kumbaya rapport with Republicans in his stupid quest for bipartisanship!  Who the hell cares about bipartisanship?  We won the elections they lost! What’s the problem with that? I hope we liberals have won with this pathetic watered down law but I still believe that without a strong public option the new law is not only worthless but could severely hurt the Progressive cause!

Obama’s Secret Plan To Rescue The Public Option

Many of us are very dis-enchanted with the current situation concerning Health Care Reform and the lack of the Public Option! I am happy to report we have an EXCLUSIVE speech by President Barrack Obama to rescue the Public Option! Finally “Change We Can Believe In”.

Amazing isn’t it that after one year we Democrats woke up to discover we are the majority in both Houses of Congress and we have the Presidency! Why didn’t we ram forward with “reconciliation” when we were still hot? After a year of not wanting to appear pushy and breath takenly awaiting the latest whim of Senator Joe Lieberman, we have an answer!  Our beloved President, the father of “Change We Can Believe In” now addresses the Democratic Base that put him in office!

Stop Attacking Dennis Kucinich

I fully support Congressman Dennis Kucinich in his opposition to the Health Care Bill as it now stands without a strong public option. While Obama was cow towing to closet Republican Joe Lieberman  he should have been paying attention to the people who elected him not the likes of Joe Lieberman who supported John McCain. Rep. Dennis Kucinich has correctly pointed out that this Health Care Bill is a give away to the insurance cartel. (See Video below).

Top Ten Reasons Republicans Get Away With The Filibuster

Actually it started before Barrack Obama became President. Democrats have been playing their favorite party game of “masochism”! We had a majority in the House of Representatives and Nancy Pelosi did not use her constitutional mandate to end the financing of the Iraq War. This allowed Republicans to see that most Democrats don’t have the testosterone to stand up to Republicans!

When you required only a simple majority in the House to stop the unfunded vast wild eyed Republican Social Engineering Experiment in Iraq under Bush and you don’t do it in that environment, then what chance do you stand now in the Senate? In the House they cannot filibuster while in the Senate Republicans can filibuster! One word can sum it all up, “impotence”! When Wall Street gets away with murder and we Democrats don’t stand up to them then you have to ask, “Is that the change we voted for”?

Senator Judd Gregg Versus The Middle Class

I heard a segment of Senator Judd Gregg’s interview on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell show. He laid out some plans to punish people who are overweight and engage in unhealthy behaviors in terms of health insurance costs. I guess he would support the removal of Trans-fatty acids in fast foods!

After all when hard pressed and overworked middle class Americans have to grab a fast meal while working shouldn’t they have “Freedom” from trans-fatty acids? What about freedom from nicotine addiction to cancer producing cigarettes?

California Insurance Costs Skyrocket – It’s Called Freedom

First a question for Republicans! How is all that Corporate Free Marketie de-regulation thingy working out for ya! Huh?  (Wink).

When will Americans ever learn that a decrease in Government Regulation does not translate into an increase in individual freedom! Instead a vacuum is created for the bully to take away the freedom of individual Americans! Just look at the recent insurance increases in California!

Massachusetts – Charge Of The Castrati Brigade

I disagree with The Huffington Post that a loss in Massachusetts is the loss of Universal Health Care! In fact as a Progressive Social Democrat I welcome it! When I heard the recent predictions I was actually laughing since this is the pathetic  result of fighting the “Party of No” by being the “Party of MEOW”! It reminds me of my undergraduate days learning B. F. Skinners’ operant conditiong! Corporate America and their fellow travelers, the Blue Dog Democrats, have been using operant conditioning’s “successive approximation” to shape the behavior of President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to the point where they are now “The Castrati Brigade for Change”! The new ‘mantra” of the Democratic Party leadership is “MEOW”!

The Audacity Of Impotence

Following in that great martial tradition laid down by Nancy Pelosi, who had two years control of the House even before Barrack Obama became President but was to impotent to impeach George Bush or defund the war, our new President joins with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in our Democratic Party’s new “Change We Can Believe In – War Cry”. — “MEOW … MEOW … MEOW”!

Separation Of Corporation And State

When is the American middle class going to wake up and demand the separation of corporation and state! We must address this issue before the health care issue. The problems passing real health care reform are mere symptoms of the underlying disease that is infecting the “decision making processes” of our society! That disease is the lack of Separation between Corporation and State!
