    Let us know when you have elected socialist to your local government and then used that to elect socialist to take over your State legislature. That can be the template for all the other State to put Socialist in control of the State legislature. You only need a limited number of signatures to get on [...]

    Well, run for office. Start off running for city council or school board. Then State legislature. Then if you can sell the tax hikes required to make a difference, then run for Congress on a platform of hiking taxes. You can run for those offices as independents. After you have lots of backers for your [...]

    Which progressive groups are focusing all their efforts on electing tax hikers to Congress. After all, the only way to stop climate change is by making gasoline and heating oil too costly to burn, say above $10 per gallon. Unless that generates tax revenue, in which case the tax needs to raised so gasoline and [...]

    They are “fake” because the only voters who understand the power is in Congress is the right-wing, totally unlike before 1970 when labor, which was not the left, understood they had to vote to get labor friendly representation in Congress. Today, labor doing drudge work in worse conditions than coal miners in 1900, except without [...]

    we still do not have anything approaching a rational coherent policy towards dealing with Ebola.

    What is incoherent about the policy toward ebola? Voters want less government and lower taxes and less health care. Maybe the people want the opposite, but they claim that there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans and refuse to vote [...]

    Here’s the way to understand it. Last week, a high school student with concealed ebola spread ebola to four fellow students, and then died of ebola, along with one of the other students. The other three students were rushed to the hospital suffering from ebola, and overnight another one died of ebola. The other two [...]

    Ebola is very dangerous! Why ebola struck Marysville-Pilchuck High School, about 34 miles north of Seattle, after ebola patient Jaylen Fryberg, spread ebola to four of his school friends just as ebola took his life.

    It was a 40 caliber ebola handgun….

    If only Republicans would quarantine ebola handguns and ebola long guns in the USA, ten thousand lives would be saved each year.

    Seriously, Republicans are holding up the Surgeon General nominee because he has said guns are one of the biggest public health threats.

    Presidential candidate Christie says taking the liberty of a person that might maybe sorta has a tiny chance of infecting others is justified, but taking a gun that is absolutely a threat to life is a totally unacceptable violation of liberty.

    But how does attacking Democrats who were blocked by Republicans and Bluedogs from doing more than Obamacare helped by attacking Obama and Democrats and getting more and more Republicans elected?

    How would no health care law passed and Republicans gaining control thanks to you attacking Obama and Democrats for failing to control healthcare costs and denials and cancellations, just like Republicans would be, and Republicans gaining control of Congress.

    Republicans have been the problem for a quarter century and should be held to account, at least until you have delivered a Congress that is 80% Democrats like FDR and LBJ had. And they failed to get significant things passed as well, like universal healthcare.

    When you as a saver could put your cash in a money market account and treat it like a bank savings account, Glass Steagall was as good as dead, and that was in 1968. To counter savers pulling the money out of banks to get higher interests in money market funds, banks were allowed to [...]

    The fossil fuel industry is the epitome of anti-capitalism, the free lunch pillage and plunder economic pure play. The fossil fuel industry focuses on pillage the land of other people and then selling it off for a profit to be burned. The trick is to balance scarcity from pillaging slower with creating a price for [...]

    What percentage of people treating ebola patients using CDC, WHO, NIH, et al levels of protection get ebola?

    What percentage of people in contact with an ebola patient suffering a 103+ fever for at least two days get ebola?

    The answers are “extremely few.”

    No one living with the very sick Duncan, confined in the apartment he was sick in, or those in contact taking him to/from the ER or in the ER with him, got ebola, not a single one.

    Of the hundred or so medical staff in contact in some way in his hospital stay was infected except for two nurses who were not fully covered while providing care during the time he was leaking body fluids because the hospital did not tell them to wear the protection the hospital had on hand in storage.

    The doctor in NY had a fever of 100.3, not the 103 fever that Duncan had when sent back home for the two days his health rapidly deteriorated. Even at 103, Duncan did not infect others. Two days later after hitting 103, Duncan was still not highly infectious. It was only after that he became a health risk based on infecting the two nurses seeking to avoid infection, but not properly equipped.

    If you think zero risk is acceptable, then let’s have the government monitor everyone’s communication and movements to stop them from killing others, really track drivers closely to ensure they don’t drive recklessly and kill people.

    After all, liberty must be sacrificed to protect everyone.

    If you are sacrificing mine, I get to sacrifice your liberty.

    Seriously, you should be afraid of dying from triple-e, or west nile, or being disabled by lyme – all viruses with no cure, no vaccination, and apparently part of climate change increasing hazards (not getting cold enough to wipe out most of the virus reservoir hosts).

    Didn’t you notice that the cycles got weaker the more taxes were viewed as theft and as burdens on the economy…? Tax cuts kill jobs AND create bloated wasteful spending, like wars, or in other nations, massive doles that create angry unemployed young people who are called ungrateful welfare bums who should get jobs (but [...]

    TANSTAAFL I see no mention of demanding higher taxes to create jobs. Why? Do you think that tax cuts will pay for building healthy and modern schools? Do you think that tax cuts will pay for higher education whether trade school or college with modest tuition and spartan living quarters as required? Do you think [...]

  • Yet again, DSWright has failed to take the opportunity to justify the virtue of mass murder of innocent people, of sex slave trafficking, of forcing children into committing war crimes and crimes against humanity.

    After all, these actions have proved so virtuous in West Africa which has the virtue of no health care sector after decades of crimes against humanity and war crimes by child soldiers, leading to the great virtue of ebola added to the ongoing plagues of other diseases.

    War over there should go on unchecked to wipe out millions of people sitting on top of oil rich land. Once they have killed each other, US corporations will be able to go in and take total control and bring in Americans to pillage and plunder those regions for profit.

  • I see no evidence that Sen Alexander is doing more than bait and switch to create a wedge issue that benefits him. He has not introduced or cosponsored any bill to do what he says. He’s trying to prevent voters from voting for a 3rd, 4th, 5th party candidate who is campaigning on real less Federal interference in your life, after attacking his opponent Gordon Ball for the moral character flaw of defending pot dealers in court.

    And if Obama sent a bill to Congress to decriminalize, or as many had demanded, issued an executive order to override Federal law and prohibit any prosecution of possession and sale of pot under existing Federal law mandating prison and fines for such acts, you can be sure he will be among the loudest to condemn Obama and probably call for impeachment.

    Activists need to do everything possible to force Alexander to explain why he has not sponsored a Federal decriminalization bill or a bill allowing States to override Federal drug laws in the next 10 days.

    The White House may look to the Republican Party to stop the release of any report relating to torture and the CIA

    Outrageous!! Obama is shirking his duties as dictator in failing to crush the populists in Congress elected by We the People to represent the people’s voice!

    Obama must become dictator and crush populist and its representatives, the Republicans in Congress! Enough of the namby pamby republican democracy nonsense!

    When a moneyed political elite makes you president, its your duty to be dictator and crush the rabble with hard fist.

    “Due process” does not mean going to court.

    Laws passed by representatives of We the People are due process.

    Your financial life is reported to the government, mostly the IRS, by due process of the tax code. The privacy of your financial life is defined in the tax code.

    If you think that is unconstitutional, then you must really trust the conservative rich because you are arguing they should pay taxes on the honor system with the government having no reason to question what they report, thus no court order to search could be obtained. Unless people broke in and stole their records to provide evidence to a court.

  • Work is a racket. People only work if they profit. If they didn’t want a profit they would work for free.

  • Once again this highlights the fundamental flaw in the basic logic behind the Affordable Care Act. Even with the help of a fancy website, expecting regular people to be savvy insurance shoppers is completely unrealistic.

    Right, the voters vote Republican because they tell us that in the free market, healthcare is free.

    But voters are smart enough to know that a government run system like Medicare/Medicaid will cost a lot in taxes, so they know that the progressive promise of free government run single payer is not going to be free.

    And because half the people think they are rich because they see they are not working for minimum wage and living in a slum or homeless or going to a food pantry, so progressives saying they will pay for single payer by taxing the rich, they know they will be paying half their income to provide health care for the poor.

    No one is starting out by telling everyone that health care is not free and that everyone is and must pay for it.

    But no one tells the customer how much a car is going to cost, or how much a cell phone costs, or pretty much everything else, and people are taught to never demand the price right up front.
