Here's why.... when I watched that video of Herman Cain responding to a reporter's question on Libya as he was just coming out of some kind of venue....this was after the news broke of his twirling things in his head (saw it on the Daily Show), and where he responded "Nine, nine, nine"....or "Nein, Nein, Nein", I really wasn't all that surprised about that..... But I was surprised that he seemed to be eating something at the time, and as he was walking....when he answered the question; he did...

Dear Attorney General Harris, I am requesting that you make a statement and take action in reference to the intense local police activity towards the Occupy Wall Street Oakland protest site. Right now, there is an Iraq Veteran who was hit by a police projectile, and is currently in the hospital in serious condition. You must speak on this, and you cannot be concerned about the Mayor of Oakland, and why she ordered this, as she should not have. Protestors must have the right to peacefully assem...

(Image) A coordinated Republican effort to suppress the Democratic vote and skew the outcome of the 2012 elections is under way. More than 5 million voters could be affected in states including Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin, Nevada, Virginia and California – more votes than decided the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. No surprise, the legislation heavily targets young, poor and African American voters – who disproportionately support Democrats. We need 150,000 people to join our 2012 Electi...

Somebody posted a link to this article in another thread, and I found it timely. It's hard to be a Democrat because we have to be so many things to so many different people. We're undisciplined, disorganized, and we're up against billionaires who don't like to share and don't play well with others. These billionaires own the corporations and sit on the boards of all the major media outlets. They control the message and they use fear to divide us, so many will vote against their own best int...

I was just discussing the OWS protest with my FB group, and one person made a statement that I agree with. He said..... The beauty of the "TAKE OVER WALL ST" protest is that it is a "LEADERLESS" movement. In other words, there is not one single person that is the face of it. In this way the Right Wing propaganda machine has no one to focus its venom. Limbaugh, Hanity and the rest of the pimps of propaganda are at a loss to get someone to target. In this way, the protest is pure patriotism. ...

(Image) Obama Denounces New GOP Voting Laws, Says the Justice Department Is Investigating By Ari Berman "I will say that my big priority is making sure that as many people are participating in our democracy as possible. Some of these moves in some of the other states that we’ve seen try to make it tougher to vote, restricting ballot access, making it hard on seniors, making it hard on young people. I think that’s a big mistake, and I have made sure that our Justice Department is taking a loo...

I'm starting this thread because I want those saying that the Tea Party has every right to be part of the OWS movement to please stop that propaganda or show me. Today, I have had to refute those who are trying to assert that the Tea Party was formed to protest Bank Bail outs. I say that the Tea Party was formed to protest the anger of some that Pres. Obama was proposing programs to provide families avoid foreclosures. So, if someone can show me the Tea Party protest PRIOR to Santelli's rant ...

Be informed, and be prepared (Image) (Image) State voter photo ID laws and other suppressive legislation have swept the nation recently, threatening to roll back the hard-won right of every American citizen to participate freely in our Nation's democratic processes. These newly enacted laws disenfranchise many voters including minorities, low-income persons, senior citizens, voters with disabilities and students. Restrictive voter ID laws are truly a "solution in search of a problem," sinc...

The Tea Party phenomenon, in stark contrast to the Wall Street protest, was brazenly built-up and slickly marketed by the corporate media itself. It’s debut starred Wall Street media figure Rick Santelli, who initiated a rant on the corporate media channel he worked for, CNBC. The rant he became famous for encouraged a protest centered around the fact that the Obama Administration had dared propose measures offering a lifeline to help ordinary citizens on Main Street, who were losing their hom...

(Image) The Wall Street protest, which started on September 17, 2011, had been planned for months. What started as a peaceful march onto Wall Street by no less than 10,000+ protestors last week then morphed into a sit-in, as planned. Those passionate and dedicated in their efforts to send an important populist message to Americans, as well as to Wall Street, showed up determined and prepared. However, the protest has now been turned into a violent circus by those so good at doing such things,...

by Samantha Power on September 22, 2011 On Wednesday, addressing the UN General Assembly, President Obama said, "No country should deny people their rights to freedom of speech and freedom of religion, but also no country should deny people their rights because of who they love, which is why we must stand up for the rights of gays and lesbians everywhere." We believe that this is the first time that the President of the United States has used his annual General Assembly address to call on the ...

(Image) Melissa Harris-Perry September 21, 2011 <> The 2012 election may be a test of another form of electoral racism: the tendency of white liberals to hold African-American leaders to a higher standard than their white counterparts. If old-fashioned electoral racism is the absolute unwillingness to vote for a black candidate, then liberal electoral racism is the willingness to abandon a black candidate when he is just as competent as his white predecessors. The relevant comparison h...

A top House Republican accused President Obama of appealing to Americans' "fear, envy and anxiety" by pushing a new tax rate on people making more than $1 million annually, saying the "class warfare path" will only hurt the economy. "Class warfare ... may make for really good politics, but it makes for rotten economics," Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., chairman of the House Budget Committee, told "Fox News Sunday."
