The Senate takes steps to declare war with Iran

Main actors: Chris Dodd, Richard Shelby, Lieberman, John Kyl, and Mitch McConnell.

Oh look, I'll point out hypocrisy on both sides. But I find Republicans do it openly, and with months of planning.

From the L.A. Times

China owns a huge percentage of U.S. debt.
China buys oil from Iran.
U.S. wants China to sanction Iran.

Watching Daniel in the Lions' Den

LOVE it. Great opportunity to correct the rhetoric Republicans use to try to keep Bush's policies know, like those economic policies that wrecked our economy and led to so many job losses. Including those "across the board" tax cuts...

Looking back to July

I was just checking some old videos and came across this one. I'm not that familiar with Michelle, and am not impressed, wow, what B.S. (notice how much she says, "everything," "always," "entire," and what an apologist for racial intolerance), but I stopped watching the Today show when Bush was president because that guy beside Michelle, Matt and the Today producers, seemed so out-of-reality-enamored of Bush. What is fascinating about this video is how clearly disgusted Matt is by the words spewing out of Michelle's mouth. Look at Matt's face! Worth a watch to me!

One reason why I distrust big companies...

Haliburton acting inhumanely, thanks to Dick Cheney and thank God for Franken...

Here's a list of who did and didn't vote for the Franken Amendment to allow workers a fair trial. I notice that Senator DeMint, who I will actively campaign against, voted against it. I believe he severely compromised our national security over his anti-union theocracy.

Cultural Climate of Hate

I watched Glenn Beck's documentary on Stalin et. al. and I realized how distracting it is from today's climate, that he contributes to. I think Beck's a bully who is campaigning to make progressive/liberal values an American enemy. My conservative friend is just laughing off his lies as "opinions" and tells me it "wakes" her up. I've told her he's trying to scare her and me and he's inflammatory and dangerous for my family; and that I will speak up when I see hate.

The Bush administration raised the status of bullying and government control in this country and the world and I don't think we've seen the end of it among our people. I sense that the election of Obama has emboldened hate groups and we've recently seen proof of that. The guy who killed 3 cops in Philadelphia was a skinhead who actually posted a clip of Glenn Beck on a neo-Nazi website that confirmed a conspiracy theory the killer had.

I don't think Hitler's funny (see the site above; the blogger thinks I'm being "politically correct"). You may want to check out Southern Poverty Law Center's Hate Map to find the skinheads in your state.

Healthcare, Massachusetts, and the House

Schmog's wise comments and a great link to an article are linked here.

I just want to say that no Massachusetts voter in their right mind would vote in a Senator that would vote to undermine the progressive, universal healthcare that they receive in Massachusetts. The plan that Brown voted for, not against. Get it?
