MIddle-Class Being Hosed for Oil Companies


Everyday we don’t hear John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Mitch McConnell say that they will end the grossly unfair and indefensible oil subsidies for OIL INDUSTRY at a time of record oil company profits.  There was a time when the oil drilling industry needed government help to keep it growing. No longer. Yes, in relation to the profits, the subsidies are not a large amount of money. But, that is no excuse to continue throwing money away. Yet, the oil companies have directed the republicans to resist repealing oil subsidies along with tax increases for the rich. It seems like there is a class of Americans that feels it is entitled to hold all of the wealth in the country by continually hosing the middle-class.  Quality of life for the middle-class has been severely damaged while the rich, and the republicans who protect them, live high on the hog! Where’s the basic fairness in our country?

I read about the “greatest generation” who sacrificed and fought ’til victory in World War II. Since then we have been slowly spiraling into a new country with less noble values and ignoble goals. Just what do we stand for?  We elected an Afro-American President to show that truly in America the best man can get that job regardless of race.  Since his inauguration republicans have waged an ugly and unrelenting campaign to fight President Obama’s efforts to deliver on promises of change.  And, Barack Obama is too much of a gentleman to toot his own horn and praise his accomplishments. WHY HASN’T THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEAD A CHORUS CELEBRATING THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF OUR DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT?

Are we as a nation so mired in the muck of despair that we can see no hope at the end of the proverbial tunnel?  We need an issue that will galvanize the people into one-minded vigor for the America we have given lip-service to for decades. The middle-class must self-emancipate. We need an issue that will get the couch potatoes, the young and even the infirm, out to the voting booths for state and federal elections culminating in a democratic presidential victory in 2012.  Will you do your part? God bless you!

I guess you are fit to be tied after hearing today’s news on profits for the oil industry‘s first quarter.  Many of us are paying $4/gal for gasoline to fill our cars. It just seems obscene, perverse and unjust all at once.  Especially when you add the millions we give these profiteers as OIL SUBSIDIES.  I was so moved that I wrote this email to the President and my federal elected representatives:

April 27, 2011

[recipient address was inserted here]

[recipient name was inserted here],

We are in challenging economic times.  The American people can no longer
look the other way and ignore veiled winks of the eye as we pay billions
of taxpayer dollars to oil companies in the form of subsidies while at the
same time they have the largest profits in recent memory.

Please use your vote and influence to END OIL SUBSIDIES. Your country will
appreciate your honest service and duty.


Feel free to use this text, modify it and send it to your elected federal representatives.

Do those in the DC beltway care about our everyday struggles to stretch a dollar?  We have to pay for transportation to work. Then we have to decide between food, medication and cleaning our clothes we wear to work, etc.  “We” are the lower 98% of the population.  I have pointed out here how the great divide between the “haves and the have-nots” widens each day.  Can you imagine living in the miserable world that Paul Ryan and his republican brothers would visit upon us?  If you do nothing, don’t complain when miserable goes from concept to reality. I have to go down trying.

Proposed legislation in Vermont could soon require foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients to be labeled as such. Known as the Vermont Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, the bill would go into effect in 2014 and apply to food sold in retail stores.

EX Morman Bishop Romney Evades Morman Doctrine


Writers more talented than I can talk about Mitt Romney‘s flip-flops on important issues like Roe vs Wade. In the video above, Romney is asked how his Mormon religion would affect his decisions if he were President.  The question is clearly made to him AND ROMNEY EVADES THE QUESTION.  What is he hiding? Why won’t he talk about the Mormon Church? Why does he make a distinction between christians and mormons? Candidate Romney states in the video that he has “the love of the American people.” Huh? Come again, Mitt. How do you gauge that supposed love?

Guy Smiley, Romney Look-a-Like

I look forward to seeing and hearing Romney justify making millions by doing what Gordon Gecko did in the movie “Wallstreet.” He bought companies, sold off their assets and fired the American people. He is reported to have $500 million dollars yet served chilli when he announced his candidacy  for President. [It was not the lead story in the local papers...thanks to Sarah Palin whose hunger for celebrity sucked up all the oxygen in the state that day.]

English: Postcard: Leap Year, 1908 Description...

"Be careful, Clara. That's a fine specimen. As for me, LOOK OUT RYAN REYNOLDS!

“February 29, known as a leap day in the Gregorian calendar, is a date that occurs in most years that are evenly divisible by 4, such as 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. Years that are evenly divisible by 100 do not contain a leap day, with the exception of years that are evenly divisible by 400, which do contain a leap day; thus 1900 did not contain a leap day while 2000 did. Years containing a leap day are called leap years. February 29 is the 60th day of the Gregorian calendar in such a year, with 306 days remaining until the end of that year.” [Wikipedia]

“In the British Isles, it is a tradition that women may propose marriage only on leap years. While it has been claimed that the tradition was initiated by Saint Patrick or Brigid of Kildare in 5th century Ireland, this is dubious, as the tradition has not been attested before the 19th century.[8] Supposedly, a 1288 law by Queen Margaret of Scotland (then age five and living in Norway), required that fines be levied if a marriage proposal was refused by the man; compensation ranged from a kiss to £1 to a silk gown, in order to soften the blow.[9] In some places the tradition was tightened to restricting female proposals to the modern leap year day, February 29, or to the medieval (bissextile) leap year day, February 24″.[Wikipedia]

Placido Domingo & Stephen Colbert – “La Donna E Mobile” – A Classic Duet

I knew Stephen Colbert can sing. He has sung on Broadway.  But, I didn’t know that he had an operatic voice, too!  Listen to the world’s greatest tenor (and a personal favorite), Placido Domingo from Spain, sing with Stephen Colbert:
