 Cantor: It’s ‘crunch time’ for Biden talks

By Russell Berman
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said Monday it is “crunch time” for negotiators led by Vice President Biden to forge a deal to reduce the deficit and raise the debt ceiling.
“From my assessment, it’s crunch time in those meetings,” Cantor told reporters. “We have hit the point at which we are at some really tough stuff. Big numbers, everything as I have said before is on the table except tax increases.”

Read the full story here.


GOP Leader in the House, Eric Cantor, turns a deaf ear to the patriotic duty for Rich Americans to participate in SHARED SACRIFICE in our financial pickle. Eric favors policies which favor the rich people in our country growing even richer and we, the poor and middle-class, sinking deeper into the pit of poverty.  Even though he is Jewish, Eric should recognize that in this primarily christian nation, the right and good thing for the Republican party to do in this time of crisis, is to have the rich pay their pay share. Eric and John Boehner, Speaker of the House, blackmailed the President into an unholy compromise last Christmas giving the rich a huge windfall.  Enough! Eric, John, reject Koch-Brothers-like campaign money and make real the noble responsibility of the jobs you hold. Don’t wait until the 11th hour to compromise on the 2012 Budget and raising the Debt Ceiling. That would be unseemly and would hurt the global economy. Does the Republican Party really want to be responsible for the collapse of the dollar and economies around the world who use us as a standard?  The answer MUST be “No!” Just how strong are those chains that bind the Republican Party to the rich and therefore powerful?

Obama’s Relationship With Gay Rights Advocates Thaws In Time For 2012


WASHINGTON — The relationship between President Barack Obama and gay rights advocates appears to be thawing after two years of mutual distrust, in which each side was more likely to assail the other’s motivations than find room for collaboration.On Monday, the president’s reelection campaign formally announced that he would attend a high-profile LGBT gala in New York City on June 23. The event is set to be emceed by Neil Patrick Harris. It will also feature former Rep. Patrick Murphy D-Penn., chief sponsor of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Repeal legislation, as well as Joel Burns, the Fort Worth council member whose emotional plea to stop anti-gay bullying helped make the “It Gets Better” series viral. The event is expected to raise a nice chunk of change for the Obama Victory Fund 2012. [Sam Stein, “Huffington Post Politics”]

How About Some Transparency on Afghanistan?


LICENSED USE

We spend $2 Billion every week in Afghanistan. George Bush started the fighting there in 2001.  Where is all that money going?  It is said that our mission now is nation building.  What does that mean to the average American?  The six o’clock news does cover the war in Afghanistan.  The cable channels are not giving us the coverage they gave the war in Iraq?  Why not? Is it because the media does not want to deal with how our money is involved in corruption in Afghanistan?

THE POPPY CROP IS USED TO MAKE HEROIN

How about the extremist Taliban who fund themselves with trading in heroin?  Is it true that there are only 50 Al Qaeda in Afghanistan?  Bush started fighting there to root out Al Qaeda after 9/11.  Is our money going for infrastructure? Schools? Housing? Agriculture? Salaries for our troops?  We haven’t a clue.  There is no transparency in the war in Afghanistan.  The media is not embedded within the military to keep us informed.  Where are the pictures and the video? Did President Bush and now President Obama have some plan to fight a quiet war for some unknown purpose?

I charge the media.  They have failed us when it comes to Afghanistan.  They have not shined a light on the war which has lasted over a decade.  They prefer to cover sexy news like the Libyan conflict and the take down of Bin Laden. MSNBC and CNN have heroes in Libya who risk their lives to bring us daily news from the bombings. AFGHANISTAN: OUT OF SIGHT…OUT OF MIND!

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.]

OBAMA vs Morte Corpus D’George Dubyus


LICENSED USE

Do remember that magical night in Chicago when the people massed to celebrate President-Elect Barack Obama?  That night we believed donkeys could fly! But euphoria faded as President Obama rolled up his sleeves to work on the problems left to him by George Bush.  The Clinton budget surplus had been squandered.  We were in recession.  Unemployment was high.  Republicans were poised to oppose every innovation of our new President.  They wanted to stifle the campaign promise of “Yes, We Can.” Two vexing problems were the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Three years after the election these wars are still unresolved.  The promise to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is almost realized.  Efforts failed in the  Congress to reform the unfortunate problem of illegal immigrants. President Obama promised not to abandon this issue. It looks like we won’t be getting high-speed rail like in China, our most formidable competitor. The business community is sitting on a trillion dollars in capital waiting for a signal from the administration that will inspire them to create jobs. It seems that unemployment will be the President’s strongest obstacle to re-election. The administration has many accomplishments which the mainstream media does not cover in detail.  We hear Obama’s job speeches, but, we don’t come away thinking that there are thousands of jobs being created.

The biggest problems are with the economy. Namely the 2011 and 2012 budgets and the Debt Ceiling. Leaders are working behind the scene to reach “common ground” and reach compromise before the August 2 deadline.  Cleaning up the mess that President George Bush left behind is quite an undertaking.  I can’t grasp it all.  All I can say is, “God bless Barack Obama!”

America: Asleep at the Wheel


Licensed Use

Did you see “Morning Joe” this morning?  Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, who has been going to China for 30 years gave a thumbnail vision of the emerging economic giant  which has surpassed us.  They continue to build infrastructure that is so modern that one marvels at their ingenuity.  Their new airports are tourist attractions!  [Have you ever had to fly out of NYC?  JFK and La Guardia are legendary in the time it takes and the traffic…and the subway? One has to take a quick trip on an express bus TO NEW JERSEY!—GoodOleWoody]  China has high-speed rail everywhere! WHY IS THE AMERICAN PRESS NOT REPORTING ON CHINA? Shamelessly they think that penis revelations is news.

Many of us are looking at and preparing for the 2012 Election.  That election will be a sham in the larger view. Are you unhappy with the job President Obama is doing?  To punish the democrats are you thinking of voting republican in 2012.  How quickly we forget. We have the attention span of a goldfish.  Wake up!  Remember,  before Obama we had George W. Bush, a republican!  Was the Bush administration the glory days you think another republican President will bring us?  The problems we are concerned with today existed during the Bush administration and went unattended.  How the world must be laughing at our statements of self-importance.  We are broke just like Greece. Our economy is just so large that we can’t see it…yet. American business leaders sit on a trillion dollars waiting for some unexplained “signal from the President” before ginning up the means for our salvation: JOBS!  Do you think that I am Chicken Little?  You will rue the decades that we let slip by with our Presidents who refuse fundamental reforms and do-nothing Congresses. China will soon surpass us as the largest economy in the world.  One mark of our supremacy is that fact that the American dollar is the currency that the global economy is based on.  China wants to change that. And, we do nothing to prevent that eventuality.  We play a slow game of chicken instead of passing the 2012 budget and raising our Debt Ceiling.  THE WORLD IS WATCHING OUR DEMISE.

Yet all we do is talk about change and make no concrete plans with deadlines to turn talk into action and realization. John Boehner and the Tea party controlled House choose to fight battles that are hurting our stance in world economy and politics. CONGRESS HAS NO VISION!  We voted for them to go to Washington and make our nation great. Not engage in who can prevail on partisan issues.  Boehner promised us jobs and so did Obama. Yet, millions of Americans have no means of income or mass training for the new jobs of the century.  The President visited ONE training program in North Carolina the other day and we have already forgotten.

As I have said in this blog, we need another AMERICAN REVOLUTION!  This time we need to throw off that which constrains our growth as a super power and make striking reforms in business, education, governance, quality of life, end of life care, healthcare and infrastructure [No shovel-ready projects!]  This humble blog cannot catalog all the changes and reforms that are required.  First of all we need the Fourth Estate, our press, to report, advocate the wishes of the people and hold our leaders’ feet to the fire until we have the American pre-eminence to which we subscribe.  Enough with the talking. WE NEED ACTION, MR. PRESIDENT, MR. SPEAKER! Let your golf outing sow the seeds of a relationship that will work hand-in-hand to achieve the supereminent future which is our destiny, but could be easily lost. Gridlock is a tool of the devil! DON’T LET THE DEVIL WIN!

Jason Kidd, Remarkable Career, Wins Championship!


At 38 Jason Kidd is Amazing!

Jason Frederick Kidd (born March 23, 1973) is an American professional basketball point guard who plays for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association. He won an NBA championship in 2011 when the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Miami Heat four games to two in a best-of-seven series.

He led his former team, the New Jersey Nets to two consecutive NBA Finals appearances (2002 and 2003) before winning in 2011 with Dallas. His on-court versatility also makes him a regular triple-double threat, and he is in third place all-time for regular season triple-doubles in the NBA with a career total of 107[1] and second in playoffs triple-doubles with a career total of 11.[2]

Jason Kidd

Raised in Oakland, California, Kidd played college basketball at the University of California, Berkeley and was drafted second overall by the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the 1994 NBA Draft. Then, from 1996 to 2001, Kidd played for the Phoenix Suns and later for the New Jersey Nets from 2001 to 2008. In the middle of the 2007-2008 season, Kidd was traded back to Dallas. Along with his three NBA Finals appearances including a championship win in 2011, Kidd won two Olympic gold medals with the US national team in 2000 and 2008. [Source: Wikipedia]

JASON, I PRAYED FOR YOU TO GET A RING TO CAP OFF YOUR CAREER. I LOVE YOU, MAN!

I wish you many more 3 throws which you make look so easy. 🙂
