Speaker on the Greens

Tuesday, Speaker John Boehner returned from a luxurious golf vacation.  He began the new year with old rhetoric by asking President Obama, “Where are the jobs?” Mr. Speaker you hid from the people in your district back in Ohio, when they asked you the same question?  When you assumed your role as Speaker of the US House, you promised the American people: “The mission of Republicans will be Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!”  Remember?  Had we known how you ducked the issue on a state level, we would have known that you were just bullsh*tting the nation. Your beloved tax cheats who you call the “job creators,” have created no jobs! Yet, having no ideas for bi-partisan job creation, you repeat the old lies…over and over.  You’re fully rested now. Have you nothing new. fresh and helpful to offer as a top Republican leader?

Why Do Elections Bring Out the Ugliness of Racial Politics in South Carolina?

Flying the Confederate Flag at The SC State House Keeps Racial Hatred Alive in SC

Today, Sarah Palin said if she could, she would vote for Newt Gingrich and extend the GOP campaign. Mrs. Palin, does this mean you approve of divisive racial politics being used by big business (SuperPacs) to distract from real Americans who are suffering today…like the minorities in South Carolina?  Do you support the aims and objectives of the “TOP 1%”?  Say, how much money did they invest in your political agenda?

“Robert Reich on How to Reverse Citizens United”

Common Cause - Holding Power Accountable

Dear GoodOleWoody:

Robert Reich, the chairman of our board and former Secretary of Labor, is fond of saying that the Citizens United decision created a perfect storm of money, politics and secrecy that threatens our very democracy.

He’s right about the problem — and in a new video out just today, he makes the case for how “we, the people” should respond: by demanding a constitutional amendment.

Watch now and take action at Amend2012.org!

Robert Reich Calls for a Constitutional Amendment - Watch at Amend2012.org


This week marks the second anniversary of the reckless Citizens United decision that overturned decades of law and granted corporations the same rights as people when it comes to political spending.

Today it’s clear that the wealthy corporations and billionaires that destroyed our economy and caused millions of us to lose our jobs and homes have now set their sights on a hostile takeover of our elections and our government. They are spending millions of dollars to elect and defeat candidates, and all that secret money could drown out the voices of voters like you and me.

We can’t allow that to happen.

That’s why Common Cause is launching the Amend2012 campaign. We’re embarking on a 50-state drive to give voters a voice to push back on corporate political spending, and build toward national referenda calling on Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to reverse Citizens United.

Please take a moment to watch the new video, and then join Robert Reich in signing the petition at Amend2012.org.

Thanks for all you do,

Bob Edgar
and the rest of the team at Common Cause

P.S. This is a people-powered campaign, and we need your help to spread the word. Please forward this message to 3 or more people (real people, not incorporated or limited liability “people”) and ask them to sign the Amend2012 petition.

And if you want to read more about our campaign, check out this piece on Huffington Post: “Hate Citizens United? Common Cause Has A Way To Say So In 2012″.

Colbert Super PAC – Not Coordinating with Stephen Colbert

As a citizen addressing the general public, Stephen calls on the Colbert Super PAC not to run vicious character assassinations ads that can be traced back to him.

I wonder how “evangelical conservative Christians” justify SuperPacs and the first four Gospels of The Bible?  Perhaps South Carolina will answer that question at their Republican Primary Saturday? “Yes” to gambling money affecting politics…or “No?” The end justifies the means? Saying or doing anything to win is noble(?)

Mitt Romney Quote Shows Why He Should Not Get Votes from the Poor and the Middle-Class


MITT ROMNEY HAS NO CLUE!

“If you think that I should spend my entire campaign carefully choosing how everything I say relates to people, as opposed to saying my own experience and telling my own experience, that would make me a very different person than I am,” he said. “I’m going to tell people my own experiences in life, and I realize they’re not the same as everybody else.”  But, Mitt, you are applying for becoming President of a country of primarily poor people, many without jobs, young people with poor schools getting their education budgets cut, people who cannot afford healthcare, people who are having problems with housing, buying groceries, caring for our elderly, etc. IF WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY DOES NOT RELATE TO US, why should we invest our time in listening to you tell us “your experience?”  We know all we need to know about you rich people from the movies and TV!  We use “your experience” to escape our miserable existence, not improve our lives!  We are looking for a President who will tell us how his mission in life is to improve the human condition in America for the majority of the people, not the “TOP 1%,” who are doing very well.  From you own words, we don’t need a Mitt Romney!

Just as I was ending this article, I found a post on Huffington Post where Mitt Romney completely contradicts himself saying how much he cares about us and wants to help.  Did he take a university course on lying with a straight face and without remorse— felt inwardly or outwardly?

Will Congress Be Like China and Censor PART of the World Wide Web? Why Take Away Our Full Enjoyment of Digital Communication?


I received this email and had to share it with you:
Stop Censorship Today, Mozilla is joining the virtual strike against Internet censorship – along with others like Wikipedia and Google – to raise awareness of US Congress legislation that could fundamentally alter the Internet we know and love.

This harmful legislation, called the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate, will be voted on as early as January 24th in the Senate.

If you live in the US, there’s still time to help stop these bills from becoming law. Please visit mozilla.org/sopa for information on the bill, and on ways you can reach out to your senators.

What makes this legislation so bad? Here’s how it would change the Web:

  • Communication platforms – from YouTube to Facebook to Amazon – could be shut down if a single rights holder alleges a violation.
  • It would make the Web less stable and less secure.
  • Social networking sites, like Twitter or Facebook, could be forced to track and control user behavior, stunting innovation and undermining free expression.
  • Your Internet provider could be required to inspect all of your traffic and browsing.

Visit mozilla.org/sopa right now for information – and make your voice heard before it’s too late.

Please join today’s strike, and help protect the Internet.

Sincerely,

Jane & Winston
Editors

My Fellow Americans,. Behold the Poster Boy for the “TOP 1%” 1


Mitt Romney told Andrea Mitchell that there was nothing wrong with his taxes and he might release them in April, if memory serves. America asked, “What is Mitt Romney hiding?” That’s human nature.  But, yesterday, Mitt Romney started preparing us for when Pandora’s Box is fully opened: He admitted that his tax rate is somewhere around “15%” because his income was not primarily “earned”. People, Mitt Romney makes his money off his money. Hey, that old saying must be true: “You’ve got to have money to make money.”  Seekers of the truth are salivating to begin exploring the myriad of investment deals which continue rolling money into the coffers of Willard Mitt Romney.  The “TOP 1%” (whose wealth exceeds that of the 99% of America who suffer under their whims) now has a public face, a poster boy for the lost of America’s natal values and the dominance of the acquisition, accumulation and protection of money.  The doors to the “quiet room” have been flung back and now we know the enemy whose income has grown near 300% over recent decades and yet they deny jobs to 14 million tax paying Americans!  “Mitt and Friends” already have so much power over us.  Will South Carolina lead the race to crown him “King?” How about it, Florida, et als?
