September Site Update for The Political Bandit

We have been tracking the new VPS Server our site is now hosted on at Bluehost.com and have been extremely satisfied with the speed and bandwidth this upgrade gave the site. More upgrades are in the works and eventually, we hope that the site will be one of the fastest and easiest to navigate as it pertains to Progressive politics and commentary that isn't dictated to us by anything other than our conscience and belief that with knowledge, true power eventually emerges. The "true power" we are seeking is the awakening of the American people

Open Letter To President Barack Obama And The United States Congress – Part Two

The Gun Control Negotiations are also deeply flawed and fail to address grave problems that affect each and every American and the Global Community in ways that our nation chooses to ignore rather than address head-on; we will attempt to concentrate upon what we believe are inconsistencies on both sides of our Two-Party (Sic) Political System and will ask questions that still remain unanswered and unless publicly addressed, make the Gun Control Negotiations a political football rather than seeking real solutions to this issue. The general public is still unaware of many of the dangers that face this nation and have the potential to rip our country apart if not handled with openness and credible arguments and facts rather than political rhetoric and obstructionism.

Open Letter To President Barack Obama And The United States Congress – Part One

Is the Presidency and Congress complete imbeciles or have they been bought and sold by Corporate America and Multinational Corporations? When you allow corporations to eviscerate our tax base by outsourcing our light and heavy manufacturing, not to mention our technical support positions, it doesn't take a 5th Grader to envision how that will impact our ability to pay our nations debt. I might add that all which is stated above are facts, not supposition and/or opinion! How in the heck can Grover Norquist get the GOP to pledge not to raise taxes when we are paying the lowest level of taxes since the 1950's and we suffer from a revenue problem caused by and through a corrupt Congress that enabled Corporate America to outsource what is in effect - most of our economy?

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...

MSM Is Not Covering Issues Vital To The People – CNN Down 50% In Total Viewers & Fox Down 17%

The viewer exodus is not limited to CNN, though. Roger Ailes' aging heavyweight champion FOX News "was not immune to a loss in viewership for the month of March and for the first quarter of 2012. For the month, Fox News is down -17%," according to another post by Ariens. Perhaps, if I may be so bold, this is what happens to you when you continue to report stories that no longer resemble -- even remotely -- what your own viewers see outside their windows and apartments.

The Assault on Laborers Wages in America & Abroad – UPDATED With Addendum

America’s companies are ambassadors representing our nation and the American people around the world. With crap like this occurring is it any wonder why so many people don’t like us?

Bipartisan Lovers when Agenda Dictates

For the really big issues, like government citizens surveillance and wars, don’t buy in on the partisan bickering between the Democrats and Republicans, for the most part it is all just theater. When it comes to critical policy matters the parties are not as far apart as it appears and often rumble in the sack together.

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.

U.S Debt – how much is too much?

As policy makers bicker over the budget and increasing the debt ceiling let’s take a look at our nation’s financial condition. In recent years I have begun questioning how much debt is simply too much even for the U.S government… Are you familiar with the term normalcy bias? It is a mental state we often “enter when facing a disaster.” It “causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster occurring and its possible effects,” causing most of us to be inadequately prepared. I suspect to a degree normalcy bias with the economy is at play in clenching this ‘faith based notion’ in the U.S. credit system all together.

What if you only bought American made products?

If you carefully inspect your home plus the stores you shop at you’ll find them loaded with American brand name imports from clothing to Christmas and Easter decorations to electronic components and nearly everything in between right down to G.E light bulbs. This includes many of America’s most darling Wall Street companies from Apple to HP and even Ford and Chevy. ABC News with Diane Sawyer recently reported on this in a series Made in America and their revelations have taken some folks by surprise. Perhaps some of us have been buying our goods with eyes wide shut...
