Dear President Obama, and any other Democrat in office, who thinks “bipartisan” means caving in to hysterical Republican demands and giving away the farm, for a few measly overdue bits of scraps.

Boycott Power

As Rush Limbaugh’s sweaty, red faced corporate sponsors found out in a hurry, don’t piss off the sluts.  Dropped like a hot potato, Rush is left to scramble around back peddling and mincing his way through the misogynistic hellhole he’s dug for himself.  The Emperor, it seems, has no clothes.  As dittoheads try to wrap their brains around how to justify his behavior, like any abuser, they out themselves.  All we sluts have to do, is sit back and watch the show.  And pass the popcorn.

So now, we have a triangulation of scandal, sex, and boycott – just enough – for We, The People to maybe get it?  There is power in the boycott.  There is history, in the boycott.  We vote with our wallets.  It’s really the only language those who value money over people understand.

So let’s fight fire, with fire.

Boycott Power.  Boycott Greed.  Especially dirty power.  Boycott those who think they are above others, who think it’s okay to abuse others.   To pollute our water, our air, and think nothing of crashing our economy overnight.   Just ask Greece or Ireland. Continue Reading…

Monopolies, Market Manipulation & Anarchy, oh my!

by TBird


First, for anyone who wants to call themselves a “free market” person, let’s get one thing straight – a manipulated market, is not a free market.  A monopoly, or even a cartel that monopolizes and manipulates the market, is not a free market.  Second, for anyone who wants to pretend they stand for liberty, while actually advocating anarchy and no rules – it is our right to vote on a set of rules we all live by, that separates the self governing Free State from the arbitrary rule of the King’s Slave State.

Let’s get something else straight while we’re at it – rules and regulations that are put in place to protect consumers, taxpayers and ratepayers are there for a reason.  Usually, because someone got hurt.  Badly.  There was a reason they enacted the Glass-Steagall regulations that protected Main Street from Wall Street’s gambling addiction.  After they tore it down, big surprise, the same swindlers who crashed the economy the first time and caused the Great Depression, were at it again.

The only reason we’re not suffering another Great Depression, is because of some more fancy dancing on Wall Street, that still isn’t clear to most of us, and they’re fighting like hell to keep Elizabeth Warren’s watchful eye out of it.  As Wall Street gets back to it’s old gambling ways, betting all our 401ks on predatory schemes and peddling their bullshit all over again,  we still don’t have Glass-Steagall laws in place, nor have any serious measures been taken to curb the orgy of anarchy on Wall Street that even Alan Greenspan admits didn’t “police itself.”  No.  Greed does not police itself.
