Diane Feinstein Hates Brownies?

Diane Feinstein has gone over to the dark side. She should switch parties. She can no longer be considered a republican lite democrat. She's crossed the threshold into Michelle Bachman tea party territory so she really should be classified as a Rethuglican now.

My gracious what trauma created this brownie bigotry? Congress just passed a bill to "reduce" the sentencing disparity between crack and cocaine now they want to make it a worse crime to eat rather than smoke marijuana? With crazy law makers like this who needs enemies or terrorists?

Run Shirley Run

We need more Shirley Sherrods who will take it to Fox News and not crumble before the Yes We Klan folks.

And speaking of Yes We Klan folks...has anyone seen them around using the current weather temperature to try to spin their anti-global warming theology?


Obama's New Truthful Campaign Slogan

Yes We Kill.

Definitely not the change Obama voters voted the new Obama agrees with exporting arms, death and destruction for war profiteers?

Whatever happened to the new Green Technology?

Social Security does NOT need to be saved!

Social Security does not need to be saved. We need to FINALLY take a good hard look at how a few folks are emptying our treasury and stealing our taxes all in the name of homeland security.

It's madness. Working people have paid into a retirement system that is solvent and works. Social Security is not a is an investment for retirement. However, the "elected" officials keep raiding the retirement funds in order to make a few folks rich off of corporate warfare. The US is spending money like there's no tomorrow when it comes to warfare. The US is launching wars for corporations all over the world. Millions of people are murdered so a few elitist corporate folks can live like robber barons. They sell this travesty via "patriotism." I hope the American people will wake up and demand an end to these corporate murders in the name of patriotism.

Enough is enough. Serious about the deficit. Then stop playing politics. Take social security off of the table and try to lift up that heavy defense spending up onto the table and please start chopping off huge chunks....and while you're at it...put that foolhardy drug war up there on the chopping block too.

Republican Bohner's Empathy

“I’ve got real empathy for those who are unemployed, as most of you know I’ve got 11 brothers and sisters. I know that three of my brothers lost their jobs, I’m not sure whether they’ve found jobs, yet, so I’ve got a lot of empathy for those caught in this economic downturn,” John Boehner said.

That's some real empathy there John Boy. You don't even know if three of your own jobless brothers have found another job? Very very impressive. You must be a true compassionate conservative.

Real Change--Fire Geithner Hire Warren....

Enough already....Fire the Banker's Best Friend--Timothy Geithner--and put a genuine consumer advocate--Elizabeth Warren--into government directing the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Our government if filled with cronies of the bank. It's about time a people's advocate was appointed by Obama.

Mercenares will be taking over the State Department....

No wonder the State Department wanted to keep on hiring Blackwater. Powerful wealthy folks want to create a structure that keeps America at war all the time in the name of greedy corporate profiteers.

It appears the recent Washington Post expose on the privatization of our national intelligence and military changes nothing behind the curtain.

This is NOT the change the people demanded. But it appears corporate will trumps the will of the people in the United Corporate States of America....

Fox News "NOT"

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

It's no coincidence that Fox News has a history of taking on causes that harm minorities and poor people. Fox took heavily edited videotapes that do NOT portray the facts or the truth to take on Acorn and to have a black woman fired from the USDA.

Why does anyone watch Fox News? They do not even practice Journalism 101--CHECK the FACTS and get the story out. Fox appears to have a different mission and it harms the weak, the powerless and the poor. It is an agenda that benefits the rich and powerful and to do this the truth is irrelevant and propaganda is supreme.

I "betcha" racists and corporate lobbyists love Fox News "Not"....We already know Dick Cheney and Karl Rove are huge fans of Fox News!!

Timothy Geithner has a woman problem...does Obama?

Timothy Geithner has issues with women. Does Obama share the same prejudice with women handling money? There certainly are no women on Obama's economic team of advisors.

Republicans block assistance to people with no jobs

Republicans open the doors of the treasury for the wealthy and want to continue to give them tax breaks, tax cuts, privatize government jobs, etc etc so that the rich can get richer...But when someone is poor and needs basic assistance they start screaming....

If any Republican thinks that Grayson is harsh I think they will be in for a major shock when they meet Saint Peter....maybe they will be turned away and reincarnated into the poorest of the poor so they can reap what they have that would be spiritual justice.

Timothy Geithner versus The People...

Timothy Geithner versus The People...Who will win?

For many people this is the last straw. If Timothy Geithner's wet dream comes true and Elizabeth Warren--the best candidate to lead the CFPB and the overwhelming choice of the people--is NOT appointed then the Democratic base will have no reason to GOTV. But it appears that the Obama White House could care less about this if rumors of the alleged man love between Barack Obama and Timothy Geithner are true.

This is Why BP and the US Gov Are Managing the Gulf Oil News

This is what BP and "their US government" ALLOW you to see--clean pictures that distort the reality of what BP has destroyed. This is why there is now a 40,000 dollar fine for any journalists who is able to get close enough to take a picture. This fashion photographer documents his experience and explains why you are not getting to see what is really happening. Our constitution has been shredded and freedom of the press no longer applies. IF the safety is the reason that journalists can't get close enough to document this catastrophe of biblical proportions then why is that person doing the clean up not wearing protective gear.

So what are you going to do about it? Remember...“The death of democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference, and undernourishment.”Robert Maynard Hutchins

Virginians Need to Unite to Protect our State

Not only do uranium mining interests want to ravage our state now corporate interests want to "FRACK" up our environment. Virginians need to rise up to protect our state water supply!!

It doesn't matter whether you are Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Liberal, one wants their drinking water to be contaminated with flammable substances!

Out of Control Military Budget Needs to be Cut

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Why is it that what needs to be on the table is not? When health care was debated the best solution to our problem (single payee system) was not allowed on the table. Now with the deficit being the concern of the bailed out Wall Street Bankers (these folks with the golden parachutes and government bailouts are not concerned about creating jobs) the out of control military budget is not allowed on the table.

You have to wonder if the goal of these Wall Street Bankers and multinational corporations is to have a nation of peons and peasants to do there bidding and to hell with the middle class.

Portsmouth Mayor Should Be Recalled on Tuesday....

Mayor Holley seems to believe that the taxpayers of Portsmouth should pay for him to have more than a secretary.

Sorry Mayor Holley this is the last in a long line of insanity....I remember your hateful rascist letters that you sent anonymously to the Portsmouth's City Attorney. You didn't have the guts nor the integrity then.

I often wonder if you were behind that multi-million dollar extension of Clifford Street. I heard a rumor that you didn't like the cars riding by so close to the golf course where you spent a lot of time (during the day)....that golf course that got expanded and has cost the city lots of money. At the same time I overheard that the funding was cut from the city budget that allowed Portsmouth's physically challenged citizens access to services form a regional organization.

Portsmouth needs a major with ethics and integrity and I don't see those qualities being exhibited from Mayor Holley in this Wavy TV 10 interview.

Imagine if Mayor Holley survives the latest recall election. I would think that local reporters will be falling all over each other to interview this mayor on a regular basis on all sorts of issues. If Portsmouth votes to retain Mayor Holley then Portsmouth's city council needs to do the right thing and not provide any funding for this mayor to have a personal assistant. This mayor has a record that he can not behave appropriately with city resources. Mayor Holley may soon lose interest in being the Portsmouth mayor if he loses what he believes he is entitled too.

Come to think of it....does Mayor Holley pay green fees to golf on the City golf course? If not, the city council should pass a law making everyone (no exceptions) pay the fees to golf on this course.

Haiti's Piggy Bank

Haiti's Piggy Bank

The Creole Pig was once the mainstay of the economy of rural Haiti. It served as the farmer's hedge against bad weather, crop failure and all sorts of unforeseen occurrences. In 1982, the US government responded to an African Swine Flu outbreak in the Dominican Republic by ordering the complete eradication of all of Haiti's Creole pigs. Produced by Grassroots International - a U.S. based social justice organization partnering with the National Congress of Papaye Peasant Movement (MPNKP) in Haiti - this video tells the story of the eradication, the hardship it caused, and the efforts of Haitian organizations to reintroduce this key economic asset.
Take the time to watch this and "discover" why US foreign policy is often nothing more than an "enslaver" of the people to increase the profits of the multinational corporate elites. These wealthy elites know no boundaries....Big agriculture wants to control the world's food supply. There's a great article over on the Huffington Post. Hopefully the US people will research this techno madness so that Big Ag will not be able to continue to use the US government to spread it's death culture throughout the world.

Is the US Constitution still relevant?

Whatever happened to freedom of the press? According to our first amendment--"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Yet the US executive branch is colluding with BP to use propaganda on the American people. Obama even allows BP to mis-use our Coast Guard to prevent journalists from documenting the Gulf Oil Disaster. Yet BP's paid public relations people are having no trouble with access as they paint a clean,serene picture of the Gulf Oil Disaster (kayakers in "pristine" conditions).

This is so criminal!! Where's that change we voted for? Appears to me that Obama continues the corporate agenda and the fascist regime of Bush and Cheney continues un-abated.

The Real Threat is FASCISM

President Obama REFUSES Scientific Facts to be used in Gulf Oil Spill

It appears more important for President Obama to serve the interests of corporations like BP than to honor his campaign promise to use science to obtain the best results.

A group of independent scientists, frustrated and dumbfounded by the continued lack of the most basic data about the 77-day-old BP oil disaster, has put together a crash project intended to definitively measure how much oil has spilled and where and how it is spreading throughout the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

An all-star team of top oceanographers, chemists, engineers and other scientists could be ready to head out to the well site on two fully-equipped research vessels on about a week's notice. But they need to get the go-ahead -- and about $8.4 million -- from BP or the federal government or both. And that does not appear imminent.

What happened to the Obama policies we were promised? "Fool me once......"

The United FASCIST State of America,,,,

Dr. Lawrence Britt's 14 defining characteristics of Facism-:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.
2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.
3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.
4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread domestic problems,
the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.
5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.
6. Controlled Mass Media - Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, [or during a corporate created disaster in the Gulf] is very common. [Some say that Obama has the WORST record of any President when it comes to protecting whistleblowers.]
7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.
8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.
9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite. [Latest example is BP--the criminals get to cover up--"clean-up."]
10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.
11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.
12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.
13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.
14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

Who would have thought that President Obama would be leading us deeper into fascism?
