Alas…

poor-romneyElection 2012:  Mitt’s Last Stand (via Red Green & Blue)

(I’ve recently been writing for a blog called Red, Green and Blue, part of Important Media Network…check it out!!)

Mitt Romney is getting desperate. Sure, national polling is close, with only a slight edge for Obama becoming apparent in recent days.  However, the electoral college – that archaic remnant of the early days of our Union – not so much.  Romney looks to have a depressing Tuesday night ahead of him.  At least, if […]

(I’ve recently been writing for a blog called Red, Green and Blue, part of Important Media Network…check it out!!)

Well, it was quite a debate.   We laughed, we cried…we winced…we wondered “Did Obama really let that BS stand?”… We heard some surprising news from Mitt Romney too.  It turns out that what he’s been saying all along about his tax policy was incorrect!  Mitt Romney is going to cut everyone…

Tax Cuts for the Rich: Republican Argument Falls Apart

SHOCKING NEWS:  Tax Cuts for the Wealthy Only Help the Wealthy (via The Inspired Economist)

(I’ve recently started writing for a blog called The Inspired Economist, part of Important Media Network…check it out!!)

Yes, yes…another day, another incredibly well-executed, painstakingly researched, critically-praised study published that just flies in the face of everything Republicans blindly promote at the urge of their billionaire overlords believe in.

Ready for the big surprise?

Tax cuts for the rich don’t help the economy.   They make the rich richer and promote income inequality.

Romney Mentions Climate Change in Convention Speech…For Laughs (via Red Green & Blue)

(I’ve recently started writing for a blog called Red, Green and Blue, part of Important Media Network…check it out!!)

It was a strange night at the Republican National Convention in Florida, what with Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair… “President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans — [pauses for audience laughter(!)] — and to heal the planet. MY promise is to help you and your family.” HAHAHAHAHA…
