Want war? Congressman wants these actions first (VIDEO)

War,Congressman Charles Rangel,War tax,Mandatory Military Service

Congressman Charles Rangel is correct about the ISIS/ISIL war Congressman Charles Rangel is absolutely correct in the statements he makes in the above video. The Congressman appeared on the Jose Diaz-Balart program. He echoed unfortunately what too few congresspeople are echoing. The ISIS/ISIL war is not an existential threat to America. I wrote about it a few weeks ago where I said the following. The military industrial complex and its puppets in the media and Congress play into the game. After-all, it is a gain for them both. For the military industrial complex they profit from the bombs, military hardware, and services they provide. Congress keeps Americans in a state of fear. Americans remain paralyzed and take their eyes off the ball. They are no longer focused on a plutocracy extracting their wealth and squandering their economic future. Americans must wise up and make it absolutely clear to the President and Congress that ISIS is not an existential threat to the US. Instead of spending billions … [Read more...]

Wendy Davis, TSU, Texas Southern University,vote

Wendy Davis powerful admonition to Texas Southern University students Wendy Davis attended a rally at Houston's Texas Southern University (TSU).

Wendy Davis gave an all inspiring speech providing students with specific reasons why she is the candidate that has their interests at hand. The video above is the encapsulation … [Read more...]

This Christian Conservative believes it’s heresy to deny God entitles the rich (VIDEO)

Dave Ramsey, God, Bible, Greed, Heresy, Wealth, Rich

Dave Ramsey thinks it's heresy not to see biblical justification for the wealthy few After listening to Dave Ramsey's interview on CBN News with evangelist Pat Robertson, one should get angry. At the same time, it illustrates why many of the poor and the middle classes do not revolt against the few who continue to profit at the expense of the masses. If a sect of a religion influences the psyche of many, the teachings of Dave Ramsey and Pat Robertson are an effective lobotomy. Pat Robertson premises the interview with a statement saying there are people in the country that believe wealth is evil. Dave Ramsey was on the show to plug his book "The Legacy Journey: A Radical View of Biblical Wealth and Generosity" . Dave Ramsey claims there is a problem out there with some "bad and toxic teachings" that claim if you won with money or if you got wealthy, you have done something wrong. He claims it is heresy to have that belief. Of course most people do not believe wealth is evil. They rightfully believe … [Read more...]

GOP Governors admit Obamacare not going away

Greg Abbott Obamacare

Greg Abbott's Obamacare and other promises won't stand Republican politicians are running two distinct campaigns. If one listens to them while campaigning to their base, Obamacare is red meat. I just got back from a Greg Abbott rally in Conroe, a very Conservative Republican town in Montgomery County Texas. Greg Abbott (R-TX) is running against Wendy Davis (D-TX) for Texas Governor. Despite the fact the latest polls show Gregory Abbott comfortably ahead he is campaigning hard against Wendy Davis who was endorsed by most major Texas newspapers. What is ironic is unlike many Republican governors, Gregory Abbott continues to run hard against the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) bragging that he has sued President Obama over 30 times. It should be noted that Texas has the distinction of being the state with the highest percentage of uninsured citizens. Nine Republican Governors, including Jan Brewer (R-AZ) and John Kasich (R-OH) accepted the Medicaid Expansion to Obamacare. Slowly but surely the reality … [Read more...]

Most major Texas Newspapers endorse Wendy Davis for Governor

Wendy Davis Newspaper Endorsements

Most of the newspapers of consequence in Texas have chimed in on the Texas Governor election. Houston Chronicle, San Antonio Express News, Austin American Statesman, El Paso Times, Corpus Christi Caller Times and Austin Chronicle All Agree: Wendy Davis for Texas Governor. These newspapers made the right call, Wendy Davis.   Houston Chronicle: Davis for governor   The election ... should be about finding a leader with vision and foresight, one who's willing to tackle tough issues too long ignored. We believe that person is Wendy Davis. [...] His Democratic opponent, we believe, will do everything possible to sustain the state's impressive economic growth, but she also will seek to broaden the state's focus. We're confident she'll work to assure that every Texan has an opportunity to share in the state's prosperity. And, with Republicans still in the majority in the Legislature, she will have no choice but to reach out to the other side in ways that Abbott is less likely to … [Read more...]

Wendy Davis & Democrats can win despite new polls

Voter Guide Poll

Many would have woken up to a new Houston Public Media Poll that shows Senator Wendy Davis down by 15 and Leticia Van De Putte down by similar numbers. It is not necessary to fool ourselves like Republicans did in 2012 when they simply assumed the polls were skewed. They deluded themselves. I remember talking to my Tea Party friends here in Kingwood. Even though polls showed Mitt Romney at best even, they mocked me about the shellacking the Democrats were going to take. They continued to use references from unskewedpolls.com. Of course we all know the President and Democrats won big in 2012. I am happy to see that both Leticia Van De Putte and Wendy Davis down by similar amounts because it indicates that whatever premise was used by the poll, it is consistent across these candidates. According to KHOU, The poll of 781 likely voters was conducted by the Survey Research Center at University of Houston Center for Public Policy between Sept. 22 and Oct. 16. The margin of error was 3.5 percent. I believe … [Read more...]

Ebola, ISIS – Will scaring Americans give Republicans a win?

Scaring Americans Ebola ISIS Republicans Democrats

Using ISIS and Ebola to Scare Americans will work till they wise up There is a confluence of events that currently have many Americans in a funk. A continuum has been an economy that simply is not working for the working middle class even though as explained by President Obama and Paul Krugman, is much improved. ISIS and Ebola has instilled an irrational fear in many. Is the working poor and working middle class weak minded, willfully ignorant, easily scared, or simply gullible? The politics of deception is not new. What is new is how easily the deception works. How did we get here? How can the country that built the Panama Canal, Hoover Dam, the Interstate System, and voyaged to the moon and back degenerate into a dysfunctional semblance of a super power? How is it possible that Americans may potentially put those that will continue pilfering them in power after the 2014 election? It is the systematic manipulation of the minds of enough Americans that is responsible. The well-established American … [Read more...]
