WHO IS TO BLAME and WHAT IS THE END GAME?

I admit it, I have never been a big fan of Barrack Obama, dating back to when he was competing against Edwards. Edwards had a single payer health care plan for America and Obama had nothing. When pushed, he came up with a makeover of Romneycare. I was also afraid that he would not stand […]

No News Is Good News, Right?

Were you as surprised as I to hear of that RN in Spain? On national media, it was as if only the US and West Africa existed, without a thought given to how the disease could spread elsewhere. I will have to think about that later. At least, in Europe, they have Universal health care. […]

Will the Real Hillary Rodham Clinton please stand up?

A friend in Murmansk and I have been having a discussion about Ukraine and Crimea. She asked me if I had read the history of Ukraine and Russia. I told her that I have read the Ukrainian version as was provided to me by a Ukrainian.  And then I said… What I have heard in this […]

The N Y Times misleads us again, sigh.

“Fed Misread Fiscal Crisis, Records Show” ~ N Y Times 12/22/2014 “As Crisis Loomed, Yellen Made Wry and Forceful Calls for Action” ~ N Y Times  02/22/2014 SERIOUSLY?  The crisis was caused by the banks and their actions and by Congress and their inaction.  The Feds were simply ugly cheerleaders.    The “banks,” and I […]

FOX News Takes Over NPR

NPR played an interview with a potential voter this a.m.  “I am glad she [Bachman] is running, she will bring common sense to the race.” Morning Marketplace announced this a.m. that New Jersey’s Governor Christie is negotiating an open credit line to J.P. Morgan for $2.25 billion dollars.  If the State needs more dollars it […]

The 1st Blow In Our Pending Revolution- It’s Just Too Poetic.

The first blow has been thrown in the coming revolution.  A conservative Supreme Court justice in Wisconsin grabbed a liberal colleague around her neck in what appears to have been the first blow in this battle.  This bout was over union rights.  As much as the liberals have taken a beating by the conservatives I […]

Dumb and Dumber One Better

Here is one for you, a perfect example of trickle down economics.  In Greece, 60 % of the people do not pay their taxes.  Seventy–five percent said they did not have swimming pools until aerial photographs proved them wrong and they still do not pay taxes.  It also looks like they do not spend the […]

Really, How Much Longer?

I despair for this country.  The rich keep getting richer and things like Arizona refusing to pass on Federal money to the unemployed through extended benefits keep happening to the poor.  The republicans keep going after the old people because even if some old guy swings a rake or something, he won’t hurt anybody.  Take […]

HACKING DAILY CENSORED

There are a number of ways one can address a problem.  The one I face here is one of simple hacking, in a sense.  While no one has been able yet to hack my password so that they can publish articles in my name, apparently I have rattled someone’s cage enough that they have made […]

So Whats Got Your Undies In A Bunch Today?

Please forgive me, my inability to focus on one issue when two are most pressing on my mind.  I love the “World Affairs Council” for the  perspective it brings to current issues around the world.  KQED presents the program early on Saturday  A.M., when I am up and going about my chores.  This morning’s “It’s […]
