An Alternative View To Be Considered When Reading Cato Institutes report that says poor Americans have it too good

Some among the conservative flock think only the needy game the system, as seen by reading this article by Lloyd Marcus, The Ultimate Devastating Price of Government Dependency posted at a conservative blog, The American Thinker. The article reflects a common opinion often perpetuated by many conservatives that poor people are poor because they are lazy and thus more likely to game the system. Consequently their mantra is welfare creates freeloaders and demand the programs be cut. But seldom do they demand cuts to subsidies that benefit the wealthy and corporations nor even acknowledge the existence of the corporate welfare system

Recent Events Require Me To Send Another Open Letter To President Obama

An article posted on CNN which contains several statements made by you make this second Open Letter to the President of the United States rather unique, and unfortunately, necessary. I will attempt to be as short as possible. There are however, several items in this letter that millions of Americans would be grateful for an answer to, and if you dare, I challenge you to answer the few questions and respond to the commentary that I am offering to your interview with CNN. President Obama didn't mince any words and dug his heel in from the beginning to the end of this interview:

An Open Letter to President Barack Obama – Obama cancels talks with Putin ahead of G-20 summit

I don't expect miracles or even good statesmanship from President Obama. He has the look of a beaten and starved animal looking through hungry eyes at what our nation has turned into... Much of the blame lies squarely on Obama's back, so history will not be so kind to our first Black President that above all, made darn sure that he didn't do anything at all that would benefit the Black Community.

Congress And The Supreme Court Are Destroying our Nation and Democracy

This has been one hell of a New Year. The President of the United States and Congress, both elected by the people to represent them, appear to be destined to throw the economy back into a recession because of their partisan differences. The Republicans have their back to the wall, claiming they are representing their constituents which for all practical purposes are the 2% of the population who control the wealth and Corporate America

Wal-Mart Charges The Cookie Monster With Felony Oreo Eating!

The future of our nation is at stake. We can begin buying American made products again and rise again as a world power with the industrial and ethical capabilities to fulfill our mission as the foremost democracy in the world well into the 21st Century, or, we can adopt the "Wal-Mart way" where patriotism and human beings don't count - it's always about the best price - always.

The Political Bandit’s End of Year Update – Updated

I'd like to thank the loyal readership that we have and in spite of all that occurred this year, we still managed to receive over a million page views - and no, that does not include bots and other "not viewed traffic." For the first time I am releasing some of our statistics and please note that this has been an off-year for Mitch and I and it hasn't quit pummeling both of us with issues and problems, many of which are experienced by the general public as we witness a Congress that is dead-locked by domestic terrorists that I and even some of our Congress are labeling as "Economic Terrorists." I believe it was us whom first branded these traitor's as Economic Terrorists, however, I could be wrong but have attempted to hammer this concept into the body politic and to anyone who has read the numerous articles I have written on that subject as referenced by the link highlighted in red. If you haven't read those essays/editorials I urge you to take the time to understand why some of our Congressional Democrats have now begun to raise the alarm for what was once only whispered about in Washington and I commend those who are now beginning to speak truth-to power. Cowering in fear of GOP obstructionism will bring disaster upon this nation of unimaginable magnitude and if our Congress and Presidency do not classify and use the Rule of Law on these Domestic Terrorists with the same vigor that they have wrought upon International Terrorists I believe they should be branded as complicit themselves and treated in the same manner.

Romney’s Get Tough on China is BS, Here’s Why!

Romney’s get tough on China is BS and he knows it, he’s merely pandering to a clueless electorate. Most anyone with a basic understanding of the global economy, currency exchange and business alliances forged between U.S multinational corporations and China can perhaps figure out how his rhetoric rings hollow…

Republicans are Thelma and Democrats are Louise

We’re long overdue for busting up the monopoly this bogus two-party has over our political system and our legislative processes. The Democratic Party dates back to 1790 while the Republican Party dates back to 1854 and that’s long enough...

Why Americans Hate Congress

It's no wonder congress has been polling so low. Since the internet was invented, Americans are starting to find out just how congress really works…did congress actually have to pass a (watered-down) law forbidding them to conduct insider trading on the stock market? Members of congress (as well at state legislatures, governors, etc.) are already above the law on almost everything else as it is now. They certainly don't lead by example, so why are they called our "leaders"…

Truth or Consequences in the Budgetary Class War Waged in Congress

The reality is that many of our elected officials no longer believe they are answerable to the people; that the Constitution is merely an outdated piece of paper; and that we the people are largely simpletons whom they mock with their political spin and tales – their smug demeanor evident all the way to the bank. And sadder still is that we mostly prove them correct as we habitually fall along our divisive party lines. Mitch Gurney
