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:

Politics Are So Surreal That It Must Be a Diversion to Keep the Public from Witnessing the Death of Democracy, Updated

Complacency is a disease that can and will serve the 1% and cause us to lose what our forefather's fought and died for. If we allow the scourge of fascism to take over this great nation, we will have no one to blame but ourselves, and our children and grandchildren will one day wonder why we as a nation stood silent while our Constitution and Bill of Rights were being eviscerated by authoritarian fascists that only worship money and power.

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"…

It’s Independence Day. Should We Celebrate Or Weep?

Americans are already on the road anticipating another beautiful 4th of July, and as I ready myself for the coming festivities, events over the last few months have me questioning whether or not we should still be celebrating Independence Day.  I haven’t written anything substantial on politics for months, plagued with health and money issues ...

Social Security & Medicare – ‘Earned’ Entitlements

What association do you make with the word ‘entitlement’? Is it negative or positive? Conservative opinion shapers can exploit the negative connotation many people make with ‘entitlement’ and frame Social Security and Medicare in a negative misleading manner while at the same time accurately describe them as entitlements. Seldom mentioned, however, is that Social Security and Medicare are ‘earned’ entitlements based on legislative arrangements and requirements with taxpayers. The premise behind the conservative’s agenda for these programs is the belief that people are better equipped to plan their own future and don’t need the government’s assistance. Whether that is true is a matter of opinion. The historical record doesn’t bear this out. It’s part of their ‘selective’ less government motif and perhaps part of a corporate serving agenda as well.

Endless Wars and Debts and Taxes to Pay for Them

As Congress members return this week from recess the battle over the budget will soon begin. Obama wants to raise taxes on the wealthy by repealing the Bush era tax cuts and close some tax loopholes. The GOP refuses to consider any tax revenue increases at all. But given our dire budget situation shouldn’t everyone and every corporation be paying their fair share for the good of the nation? Following the same rationale of ‘support our troops’, what is our patriotic duties with respect to our nation’s financial well-being?

Masters of Compromise – how things get done in DC, but sometimes the public gets shafted

For politicians compromise is often how things get done but sometimes their deals lead to the public getting shafted. This all depends of course on ones perspective on who wins and who loses. Compromising isn’t a bad thing and doesn’t always produce negative outcomes but sometimes in politics it does and a good case in point is the banking deregulation in 1998...
