Nonvoters: They're too busy, fed up or say their vote doesn't count
Sun Nov 4, 2012
It would be easier to vote if election day were a national holiday. However, with weeks of early voting and vote by mail, there really isn't a good excuse not to vote, other than laziness. Civic responsibility demands it. If one is disgusted with the endless negative campaigning, then supporting pub …
Super PACs, nonprofits helped Romney narrow Obama fundraising edge
Tue Oct 30, 2012
Other than the Dred Scott case, Citizens United is the worst decision ever by the Supreme Court. Politicians are beholden to those who pay their way, and by permitting unlimited donations by corporate "persons," SCOTUS insured that constituents have little or no sway over their elected representativ …
Are you ready for the return of 'Idol'?
Mon Nov 28, 2011
Until both AI and X limit voting to represent true popularity (as opposed to how many times a rabid fan base can punch numbers), their respective results are skewed. Where the new Idol judges (and Randy) are little more than cheerleaders, at least they don't have LA Reid's flaw: ridiculously pro his …
Vacationing Obama working on economy, White House says
Mon Aug 22, 2011
Rosella, either you're in great denial or you have no memory of W's time in office...he took more vacations than any president ever had...Obama has taken about a third as much. Also, Obama has several advisers with him on this WORKING vacation. All W did was pretend to cut brush in Crawford.
Judge: Corporate donations ban unconstitutional
Fri May 27, 2011
Worst SCOTUS decision since Dred Scott. Only way to make "our" representatives reflect the views of their constituency, rather than be beholden to corporate $$ is 100% publicly-funded elections.
With James gone, who will you vote for?
Thu May 12, 2011
Idol has become a caricature...allowing (insipid) tweens to vote hundreds of times totally distorts reality...James will have a monster career, and Scotty will sing his one octave range ad nauseum.
GOP won't push Medicare cuts at budget talk
Wed May 4, 2011
Excellent post, Huey! Right on the money...speaking of which, the only way to fix our system is 100% publicly-financed elections. That way, OUR representatives might actually represent US, rather than the corporations that buy them.
How would you improve the "Idol" panel?
Tue Apr 19, 2011
It's ironic that this year's contestants are overall superior to previous years (imo), but the judging has worsened--when Simon was at his best, his comments were right-on constructive critiques, not just mean...Kara definitely improved with time. This year, however, criticism seems to be a dirty wo …
Ohio Legislature OKs collective bargaining limits
Wed Mar 30, 2011
First, learn how to spell. Where's your umbrage (look it up) at huge tax cuts for corporations? At the "personhood" of said corporations? At billionaires' influence over these guppy governors? At the Wall Street rape of the middle class? It just plays into the right wing game plan for workers to tur …
'Amazing Race' comes to a dramatic end
Sun May 10, 2009
Problems with this season: The stunt guys get penalized for bartering and asking someone to follow them...both of which have been done before, without penalty. At least 2 full episodes near the end of the race occur in a country where only 1 team speaks the language...a huge advantage, particularl …
