  • You’re right on!

    Four of the base support groups in the Democratic Party have been unions, minorities right groups, teachers, and trial lawyers – all starting to look like endangered species today. The move to Charter schools undermines minorities, the poor, and teachers. So where is the Democratic Party leadership in defending against this assault?

    Nowhere to be found.

    Right! Move along. Nothing to see here. We get it.

  • Japan is the prefect laboratory to show what happens when you have a regulatory environment that allows companies to do whatever they want. Instead of spending a $100,000 or so to bury the back up system diesel fuel tanks, as was required in newer plants, Daiiche decided to save on the expense, and as a [...]

  • Afhanistan is not so much urban warfare like Iraq was. Not so up close to the people. Not seeing their suffering. I know one Ranger who said it was fun.

    A little hard to come back down to earth with us ordinary people when you come back.

  • The attack on Social Security is already underway. Obama’s so called ‘tax holiday’ is defunding the amount of funds going into Social Security by $100 million this year which will prevent the trust fund from going to $2.5 trillion from $2.4 trillion. How dishonest to say they are trying to save Social Security when they have already started defunding it!

    So let me get this right. If they are coming for you, don’t assume fair treatment or that you will survive or at least that you will be safe from becoming a drooling vegetable of a person. So what is the pecentage in it for you to submit to their authority? If the authorities have [...]

  • Being tortured in whatever terible way still does not change the truth. And the truth is you have two people in the relationship, the victim and the sicko torturer. Unfortunately that smelly stain rubs off on Obama.

    We are never ready ahead of time for the scenarios that could come up. we always are late and have no plan. the CIA is so lame. Couldn’t predict:
    Fall of the berlin wall
    Collapse of the soviets
    9-11
    No WMDs in Iraq
    Pan Arabic uprisings
    And they ran human experiments with drugs and rendition and torture.

    We should have been ready for this scenario. The CIA is tens of $ Billions wasted on NOTHING!

    So why not push for it anyway? At least be on the right side if the moral issue.

    Why be defeatist?

    Why isn’t the US declaing a no fly zone over Libya like we did in Iraq after Gulf I?

    OK. I get it now from Wikipedia. The ‘deficit’ will increase when the Government borrows from the public to pay back Social Security or to pay the interest owed. Because by definition the government can not take credit against the deficit for payments to Social Security. So the ‘deficit’ is defined according to the Government’s [...]

    The 4.9% interest figure was from the bottom of page 5 of the latest Trustee’s OASDI report (August 2010) which covers the year 2009 and earlier. http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/TR/2010/tr10.pdf I agree with you that this interest rate should decline somewhat in future years. The report showed that the interest accumulating in 2009 was $118 Billion. I do [...]

    Good link. Thank you gvandergrift. The Department of the Treasury will be repaying Social Security because SS payroll receipts will be less than expenditures. The Social Security trust fund may well still increase above the $2.5 Trillion currently held because the US Government obligation to SS are accumulating at a 4.9% interest rate currently. That’s [...]

  • It’s easy for Rush and Will and Sean to make uo lies about Obama. There’s nobody to defend him. Not the Base, that’s for sure. The only argument you hear is how terrible the arepublicans are.

    Blacks were represnted disproportionately highly in Viet Nam, the way the draft was structured. Did Dr. Kimg’s message resonate? Did it have a lasting effect? Everything I’m seeing — from casualty pictures to those stationed at the local Army base — is that Black’s are staying oout of the ‘Army’ branch of the service. Is [...]

  • If they are weakening Social Security, then my discretionary spending just went to zero. No new clothes. No car loans. $3 a day for food. No DVD rentals or purchases. No movies. no barbershop hair cuts, etc. To hell with them. I’ll take the ‘tax holiday’ and double it and put it in the 401-K. Cuts my taxes and revenues to Uncle Sam too.

    Any information on when this stopped? When Hegenfus was shot down? Still planes transporting narcotics are being found to have previous CIA ownership. If you’re buying coca related drugs are you supporting right wing dictators’ death grip on agrarian farmers?

    Take the money you put in and add to it the APR dividends (4.9% in the latest report this September) and then remember to double it for your employer’s contribution. People in high cost of living states may have accumulated $400,000 or more. At a payout to you of $20,000 a year the SSA still doen’t lose any money.
