Republicans Plan to Economically Destroy American Way of Life

The Congressional Budget Office, CBO, is a non-partisan oversight committee whose purpose is to determine how much legislation would increase or decrease the federal budget over a ten-year period. The present Director of the CBO was appointed by Democrats in 2009; his tenure ends in January. Republicans, who will control both houses in January, want to replace him with someone who is more friendly towards Republican economic goals. They want

Labor vs Management War Looms

Republicans have worked hard to break labor unions across the United States. In the process, minimum wage has become the standard for many of our nation’s largest corporations. The country’s largest retailer Wal-Mart pays only slightly more than the bare minimum. The fast food industry is no longer comprised of high school and college student workers, many are single mothers, or fathers who are forced to work two and even

Coulter is an Embarrassment to Normal Women

Just when intelligent human beings thought we had heard it all from the female and blonde Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter revealed that her ignorance only grows with time. Coulter is an embarrassment to all normal women. The Republican Party has much to be ashamed of; but even they must wish that some of those who claim to be members of the GOP would simply disappear. The least harmful are FOX

Ignoring Racism will not make it go Away

Noam Chomsky is a well-known linguistics professor at MIT. His statements regarding racism in America are by no means revolutionary. What they are is an honest look at the life of black America throughout our nation’s history. He points to the fact that the beginnings of our country proliferated two crimes; slavery, and eliminating the indigenous people living on land the colonists wanted for their own. The assumption of white

Rick Perry Lacks What it Takes

Rick Perry is completing his final term as the Governor of Texas. He continues to seek his party’s nomination for the White House. Recently he was asked if he was smart enough to be the President of the United States. He side-stepped the answer, thinking he was clever, and replied, ‘it’s not an IQ test.’ He must thank God for that, or was he remembering the last President who was

Dick Cheney Existed in a Life Full of Lies

Only staunch conservatives who believe that their party has never committed a falsehood, or made a mistake when in power, can deny the destructive falsehoods of the Bush Administration. When Bush, who received pressure from his vice-president to institute a policy of torture, allowed the CIA to attempt accumulation of information by any means necessary, he not only violated international law, but placed shame on a country which once had

Jim DeMint: a Traitor?

Opinion by James Turnage Jim DeMint was reelected Senator from South Carolina. He deserted his supporters to take a lucrative position as the head of the Heritage Foundation, an ultra-conservative ‘think tank.’ Honestly said; he went for the money. He calls himself a Republican, but is in reality a member of the TEA Party. He has shown no loyalty to the people of South Carolina and the United States. His

Ted Cruz is Campaigning on the Wrong Issue

Is Ted Cruz Hispanic? It depends on your personal definition. First and foremost he is an employee of the Koch brothers working for the TEA Party, not the American people. And he certainly doesn’t represent Hispanics. If you ask about his bloodline, he is Cuban. Where was he born? Canada. He has picked the wrong fight as he is beginning his presidential campaign; he has selected the wrong issue. Speaking

Immigration Reform good for the Economy

The criticism of President Obama’s executive action on the issue of immigration has little credence. It’s far too simple; Congress must take long overdue action. Bi-partisan immigration reform will nullify the President’s order. Recent studies prove that the Republicans are wrong about immigration, primarily the claim that 11 million additional legal immigrants would place a strain on the economy. Just the opposite is true; both states and the federal government

    Koch Brothers are Destroying your Civil Rights

Koch Brothers are Destroying your Civil Rights

When the Supreme Court upheld ‘Citizen’s United,’ it gave the Koch brothers the right to buy elections and control virtually everything pertaining to the American way of life. These billionaires are destroying your civil rights. The United States voting public must think below the surface. What do words on the internet, in the newspapers, or on television actually mean? Wouldn’t you think something called the ‘Patriot Act’ would be good
