Daniel Loeb, Hedge Fund Manager, Blasts Obama Administration’s ‘Redistribution Of Wealth’ #p2 # tcot #teaparty

Disgraceful. The financial sector has pilfered middleclass America three times in the last several years. They created constructs to inflate the economy robbing us blind on the way up. When their legally corrupt financial instruments failed, they forced us to bail them out. After bailing them out they refuse to put these monies to work in America based on false narratives. When will we as American get that we are continuously being snowed by these titan of finance? When will America drop its gullibility  index and support not only PINO (progressives in name only) but real progressives that work for the well being of all. I just wrote the book “As I See It: Class Warfare Is The Only Resort To Right Wing Doom” that details these issues and provide a framework that could be a solution. The books home page is at http://bit.ly/cZbZad. Take a look at it. A hedge fund manager's latest letter to investors has caused something of a stir among financial pundits, drawing comments from Paul Krugman, Andrew … [Read more...]

Obama Calls Out Senate Republicans: Pass Small Business Bill #p2 #tcot #teaparty

While I give the president kudos for calling out the Republicans on passing the tax cuts for small businesses I think he is way behind the curve in being interventionist in the economy. The titans of capitalism have failed America and it is now time that we use Keynesian economic principles to stabilize this economy. While most have been indoctrinated into believing that big government is bad the reality is big corporations is what is bad as their is no accountability to the masses. Our indoctrination is simply exacerbated by those who want to promote small government being so bad at it. I’ve written a  book that I sure hope many read to put some perspective on the level of indoctrination and the results thereof. Please check it out here. WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama exhorted Congress on Monday to make passing a long-languishing small business aid package its first order of business when it returns next month from its summer break. "I ask Senate Republicans to drop the … [Read more...]

You follow up if you feel he skated the question. Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy … [Read more...]

Estimates Say Fewer Jobs, Larger Deficits if Republicans Were in Charge #p2 #tcot #teaparty

  Nothing is more important to Republican politicians these days than jobs and the deficit—at least according to Republican politicians. As House Minority Leader John Boehner put it in a "major economic address" on Tuesday, President Obama is "doing everything possible to prevent jobs from being created" while refusing to do anything at all "about bringing down the deficits that threaten our economy." Elect Republicans in November, Boehner assured his audience, and we will put an end to this insanity. There's only one problem with Boehner's message: so far, the things that Republicans have said they want to do won't actually boost employment or reduce deficits. In fact, much the opposite. By combing through a variety of studies and projections from nonpartisan economic sources, we here at Gaggle headquarters have found that if Republicans were in charge from January 2009 onward—and if they were now given carte blanche to enact the proposals they want to—the … [Read more...]

Almighty #GlennBeck. Praises be onto thee. #p2 #teaparty #tcot

To the enlightened Glenn Beck is a caricature, someone so dumb and intellectually lacking that we do not take him seriously. Looking at the video a second time got me a bit worried. After-all, Americans tend to be gullible and if this guy gets traction outside his echo chamber he could become a force. We take him lightly at our peril.

Could it be GOP hates government because they are so incompetent at it? #p2 #tcot #teaparty

Lets have right size government with competence. The way to do that is to get intelligent policy wonks instead of demagogues with good sounding sound bites that accomplish nothing. New video released by the Obama administration contradicts Governor Christie's account of why New Jersey failed to receive a $400 million dollar educational grant in the Race To The Top program.  Earlier today after days of finger pointing, Christie fired New Jersey's State Education Commissioner Bret Schundler after Schundler refused to resign. It is looking like Christie's comments the other day slamming big government and the Obama administration lack credibility after a new video shows New Jersey officials being asked by the selection committee for budget numbers not once but twice.  Both times they couldn't come up with an answer. Via Blue Jersey: It turns out the United States Department of Education keeps video of the presentations of Race to the Top applicants. And that video, obtained by Star … [Read more...]

GOP Leader Boehner is correct. Geithner & Summers must be fired. #p2 #tcot #teaparty

GOP Leader Boehner is correct. Both Geithner and Summers need to go. They have turned out to be proxies for Wall Street and Investment Bankers. They wasted an opportunity to bring back free enterprises by in effect re-implementing supply side economics by shoring up the top with the expectation that it would trickle down. We have played this game several times in the last 30 years and every time the middleclass continued to get the short end of the stick. This isn't class envy; after all, it is the masses, the middleclass that allowed the wherewithal of the super wealthy, not some inherent smarts in them but the ability to use capitalism legally but corruptly.   … [Read more...]

Former RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman Comes Out: I’m Gay #p2 #tcot #teaparty

  Ken Mehlman, who headed the Republican National Committee between 2005 and 2007, has come out in an interview with the Atlantic's Marc Ambinder: Mehlman arrived at this conclusion about his identity fairly recently, he said in an interview. He agreed to answer a reporter's questions, he said, because, now in private life, he wants to become an advocate for gay marriage and anticipated that questions would be asked about his participation in a late-September fundraiser for the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), the group that supported the legal challenge to California's ballot initiative against gay marriage, Proposition 8. "It's taken me 43 years to get comfortable with this part of my life," Mehlman said. "Everybody has their own path to travel, their own journey, and for me, over the past few months, I've told my family, friends, former colleagues, and current colleagues, and they've been wonderful and supportive. The process has been something that's made me a … [Read more...]

@Markos Moulitsas: How Sex, Sin and Power Bind Jihadists to the Radical Right #p2 #tcot #teaparty

I expect this will be an excellent book. It seems as it will draw Taliban & the American Right Wing parallels that many think of but refuse to articulate. If Markos HuffPo piece is indicative of what the book covers, it should be a bestseller. Does not hurt that it has the word “sex” in it. For the past nine years, I've been told that I want the terrorists to win. That's funny. Why would I want the radical jihadists to win? Indeed, on issue after issue, there is no daylight between the views of radical jihadists and the American radical right. Fact is, I loathe jihadists for the exact same reasons I hate the modern conservative movement -- because whether it's their violent outlook, or their views on women and gays, or their hostility to knowledge and science, or their fear of pop culture, they are essentially cut from the same controlling, ideological cloth. As obvious as this comparison might be, the accusation that liberals and jihadists share common cause has persisted, which is … [Read more...]
