China could take over Taiwan, Nepal and invade Japan tomorrow if they wanted to. No one would be able to stop them.
The USA is now Made In China, so USa can’t lift a finger to stop them, or every Wal-Mart would be empty overnight. If Obama made any attempt to stand up to China, the Walton Family would call the White House and issue orders to the President to lick the Chinese President’s boots.

We get $748 on our SNAP card a month, that’s for 2 adults, three children on less than $20K a year. We are already down to $280 left and it’s March 11. That has to last 20 more days. If we didn’t have that we’d be homeless. And the Democrats are going to help the [...]
Thank the Gods you wrote this, now I can believe you and not my own lying eyes! It’s good to know that all of the effects of disastrous climate change I see everywhere around me avery day is not real, but a figment on my imagination and invented by Al Gore. The weather hasn’t been [...]

“He was upset because he did not expect this to happen in America.”
“It’s nothing I’m not already used to,” he told me later. “When you live under occupation, with no rights, this is a daily occurrence.”
Because America hasn’t been the Land of the Free since Saint Ron Reagan’s days. And since G W Bush’s days’ it’s been completely transformed into a fascist police-state, complete with ID card checks on the interstate highways. The only ‘rights’ we have left are the ones the Koch Brothers haven’t ordered Obama to take away … yet.

“In a country where people are worked until they fall unconscious, how long will it take for multinationals to wake up to their complicity in the horrific conditions of the industry status quo?” Dude!

ComradeRutherford commented on the blog post What if the Deficit Hawks Already Got their $4 Trillion and Nobody Noticed It?
Oh, the right knows exactly what they are doing: moving the goal posts. It will always be “$4T needs to be cut” no matter how much has already been cut. The Village Idiots will never dare report reality, or they get cast out of The Village!
Aside: Go see the old Prisoner TV show for an accurate description of Main Stream Media and The Village media reporters. The episode you want is “Free For All”…
Everyone here is either too young, or has completely forgotten that the Democratic Leadership sold control of the Democratic Party to the Republicans during the Iran-Contra hearings back when Reagan was Acting President.
I clearly remember Senator Inyoue leading the Democrtas out onto the steps of the Capital building for a press conference and declaring that no matter how egregious the treason committed by the Reagan Administration, no Democrat would ever dare hold any Republican accountable to the law.
Ever since that day no Democrat has dared to oppose a Republican when it really counted. Sure the Dems throw a scrap to the base every now and then, but when it really matters, the Dems ALWAYS side with the GOP. Just look at how Reid runs the Senate: asking the minority permission before he advances any bill, and if any Republican even looks in his direction Reid instantly kills the bill.
OF COURSE the Dems were never going to pass any actual changes to the Senate Rules. OF COURSE the rules they did change BENEFIT the GOP!
The Democratic Leadership has been under the control of conservatives since the mid-1980s. We have only one-party in this nation and it has two wings: the moderate-right and the far-right.

The Republicans only policy for the last 100 years has been the destruction of the global economy. This is merely the latest round.
ComradeRutherford commented on the blog post Apple Will Move Production of Some iMacs to the US in 2013
“it was Cook who moved Apple production to China a decade ago.”
This means that American wages have been intentionally depressed so much over the last 10 years that it is now cost effective to pay Americans the same crap-wages they do in China. Apple would be basically saving the shipping costs from China to the USA.
ComradeRutherford commented on the blog post Right To Work Passes Both Houses in Michigan Quickly
Republicans hate the very notion of people getting paid for their work. They hate that people can join together in a professional association to use their collective force to require a decent wage and to be able to retire someday. If businesses can form associations to collude against their workers and customers, why shouldn’t their workers be able to join forces in return?
Republicans HATE people that actually WORK for a living, being the party of executives, board of directors, shareholders and fund managers that steal the results of everyone else’s work.
I do recall several instances over the last 30 years when the Dems were in the minority in the Senate and used the filibuster to stop the far-right from passing a series of horrible draconian laws. Most recently during the first 6 years of the second Bush regime. I can’t now remember what the laws were, but I do remember being very relieved that the Dems were able to stop far-right extremism from passing into law.
I do favor the ability of the minority to stop legislation. The problem is that the current rules make it way too easy. The current rules allow the minority, today it’s the GOP, to kill any bill by just saying that they might block it. The bill can’t even be discussed at all.
The rule changes I have heard so far sound fine: allow a bill to at least start being discussed, and revert to the old-fashioned way of doing it – by talking nonstop, actually having to be accountable for holding up the nation’s business.

Of course, destroying infrastructure is a war crime, but since GW Bush got away with destroying all of Iraq just so the Vice President’s company (Cheney received paychecks for over two years as VP) could loot the US Treasury to ‘rebuild’ it all.
Bush paved the way for Likud to commit mass murder on Gaza.
