Unemployment Checks, Free School Lunches, Food Stamps, Energy Assistance, Subsidized Housing, Medicaid, Social Security, Welfare... what goes around comes around.
Conservatives (with Big Dog help) broke the middle class with NAFTA, deregulation, tax breaks for offshoring jobs, union busting, etc. etc. ad nauseum - now you own it - and you have to pay for it.
Bring back manufacturing and Labor or see all the above as the major source of revenue for what used to be the middle class for the foreseeable future.

My father, who was too young for the first one and too old for the second one, was also part of the infrastructure building and helped build a dam, by hand, on Rt. 100 in Burnam shortly after the war. While on the job, he developed a friendship with a rather large individual who knew how to split big, unruly rocks - my dad asked him, "Big Eddie, how do you split those big rocks so easy?", Big Eddie told him - "Where I learn to do that, you don't get no pay".
I always remember that story. My Dad has been gone for 24 years, Uncle Buzz - 10. Time flies whether you are having fun or not. Miss those guys.

Must be the result of sacking that two-faced Fox News hack Juan Williams.
I read Mike Moore's article on this and agree that (paraphrased) ANYONE who shills for corporations and ignorance on Fox News is a traitor to this country, an idiot and deserves to be fired from a legitimate news organization like NPR.

"...Improved Medicare-for-all, by replacing our dysfunctional patchwork of private health insurers with a single, streamlined system of financing, would save about $400 billion annually in unnecessary paperwork and bureaucracy. That's enough to cover all of those now uninsured and to provide every person in the United States with quality, comprehensive coverage."
"A single-payer plan would also furnish us with effective cost-control tools, like the ability to negotiate fees and purchase medications in bulk. It would permit patients to go to the doctor and hospital of their choice."

Fox News and Hate Media continue to be the biggest threat to our Democracy in modern times.
From Raw Story
"Fox News co-owner funded ‘Ground Zero mosque’ imam: report"
"The second largest shareholder in News Corp. -- the parent company of Fox News -- has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to causes linked to the imam planning to build a Muslim community center and mosque near Ground Zero in Manhattan, says a report from Yahoo!News.
According to the report from Yahoo!'s John Cook, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, who owns seven percent of News Corp., "has directly funded [Imam Feisal Abdul] Rauf's projects to the tune of more than $300,000."
Cook reports that Prince Al-Waleed's personal charity, the Kingdom Foundation, donated $305,000 to Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow, a project sponsored by two of Rauf's initiatives, the American Society for Muslim Advancement and the Cordoba Initiative, which is building the Manhattan mosque."
Okay friends - here is a little ammunition. Spread it amongst the brainwashed masses and see if we can de-program a few Americans.

Ohio election officials are sending out a mass mailer stamped "do not forward" to all registered voters today (Sept. 5) with an absentee ballot application and other important notices for Nov. 4.
What's important here is not so much what's going out as what's being returned to sender.
Unbeknownst to the would-be recipients, the same mailer - just 60 days before the election - has the potential to determine their eligibility to vote, challenged not by election officials but by partisan opposition.
A similar mailer in March netted nondeliverable mail from almost 600,000 registered voters in just five Ohio counties who could now have their ballots thrown out for voting under the wrong address.
The National Voter Registration Act prohibits any state from purging names from the voting rolls within 90 days of an election.
The law doesn't, however, preclude mass partisan challenges on or shortly before Election Day - known as voter caging - based on the same returned envelopes from state-sponsored mailers like the ones in Ohio and others going out across the country.
In 2004, the year the national election hinged on results from Ohio, the Ohio Republican Party challenged 35,000 voters based on returned mail from the GOP's own friendly reminder notices. From 2004 to 2006, Republicans challenged 77,000 voters this way nationwide. A consent decree issued in 1982 and amended in 1987 enjoins the GOP from instituting "ballot security programs" that focus on minority voters.

When aggressive right wingers try to adopt the pose of innocent victims it's called "Frame Flipping".
by: Ted Frier
(I just printed the whole thing - important it is, yes.)Yellow Dog has a good get in flagging T-Nehisi Coates' thoughts on the NAACP challenge to Tea Party Nation to repudiate the obvious racists who are attracted to the Tea Party's rebellion against a legitimate national governing majority that contains too few white Southern Christians for the right wing's taste.
But what jumped out at me is that Coates gave a name for a phenomenon I know we've all noticed many times before when aggressive right wingers try to adopt the pose of innocent victims instead: "Frame flipping."
And we need to start using that phrase more often.
But like all bigotry, the most potent component of racism is frame-flipping--positioning the bigot as the actual victim. So the gay do not simply want to marry, they want to convert our children into sin. The Jews do not merely want to be left in peace, they actually are plotting world take-over. And the blacks are not actually victims of American power, but beneficiaries of the war against hard-working whites. This is a respectable, more sensible, bigotry, one that does not seek to name-call, preferring instead change the subject and strawman. Thus segregation wasn't necessary to keep the niggers in line, it was necessary to protect the honor of white women.
Frame flipping is what occurs when the KKK accuses the Southern Poverty Law Center of "fomenting race hatred" when it publishes reports documenting the KKK's verbal and physical attacks on minorities.
Frame flipping is what occurs when Southern reactionaries like Senator Jeffrey Beaureguard Sessions III attack people like Justice Sotomayor for their "empathy" in looking at laws, made by the ruling white class to protect their place and privileges, through the lens of those minority groups who might be disadvantaged by those very same laws.
Frame flipping is what occurs when Christian fundamentalists claim that liberals are "attacking people of faith" and engaging in "anti-Christian bigotry" when liberals object to having their alternative life-styles degraded as crimes against nature or sins against God.
I ran across another example of Coate's "Frame Flipping" yesterday in a published debate in the libertarian Cato Institute's Reason magazine between Cato vice president Brink Lindsey and the National Review's Jonah Goldberg that I was going to comment on later. But one piece of it applies here.
Lindsey was arguing that the time has now come for small government libertarians to de-couple themselves from the conservative movement and strike out on their own (perhaps forming an alliance with liberals) because it is now clear that conservatism has been completely overtaken by a dangerous strain of far right, totalitarian extremism -- an extremism that its adherents cannot see because right wing propagandists like Beck and Limbaugh have very skillfully recast the aggressive right wing as society's victims.
In the essay Lindsey wrote:
A clear eyed look at conservatism as a whole reveals a political movement with no realistic potential for advancing individual freedom. The contemporary right is so deeply under the sway of its most illiberal impulses that they now define what it means to be a conservative.
What are those impulses?
First and foremost, a raving, anti-intellectual populism as expressed by Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. Next, a brutish nationalism as expressed in anti-immigrant xenophobia (most recently on display in Arizona) and it's "always 1938 somewhere" jingoism. And always lurking in the background, a dogmatic religiosity, as expressed in homophobia, creationism, and extremism on beginning and end of life issues. The combined result is a right wing identity politics that feeds on the red meat of us versus them, "Real America" versus the liberal-dominated coasts, faith and gut instinct versus pointy-heded elitism.
This noxious stew of reaction and ressentiment is the antithesis of libertarianism. The spirit of freedom is cosmopolitan. It is committed to secularism in political discourse, whatever religious views people might hold privately. And it cooly upholds reason against the swirl of interests and passions.
Perhaps aware of the instantaneous backlash that met the NAACP when the nation's premier civil rights group suggested there might be racists imbedded within the larger Tea Party, Lindsey is careful not to shake a stick at the tiger by using the word "fascism" in his description of the conservative movement today. But a "noxious stew" of "anti-intellectual populism" combined with "brutish nationalism" is what experts who study political movements define as fascism.
More interesting was the response of Jonah Goldberg, a mercenary scribe of the radical right who's sacrificed his intellectual integrity for 30 pieces of silver to spend his time spinning utter nonsense in order to keep the conservative coalition together at all costs.
And what Goldberg says about Lindsey's concerns on religious intolerance creeping into our politics provides another example of Coate's Frame Flipping.
Many of Lindsey's core aassumptions about conservatism's relationship with libertarianism are just wrong. For starters, why should libertarianism be so hostile to culturally conservative values? Isn't libertarianism about freedom, including the freedom to live conservatively if that's what people choose?
Secuarlism in politics is a perfectly admirable and libertarian value, but using the state to impose secularism on society is not. One gets the sense from Lindsey that the greater threat to freedom in this country comes from conservatives imposing their "benighted" religious outlook on the citizenry, rather than from the state scrubbing society of religion, while imposing narrow conceptions of "diversity" on every institution and hamlet.
Which worldview has more state and corporate power behind it in America today, Christianity or -- for want of a better term -- political correctness? Lindsey is supposed to be making the case for freedom, and yet so much of his uncharacteristically intemperate essay simply reads like he has chosen sides in the culture war and thinks that a host of political and policy questions should therefore be settled.
Now, the first thing to note about Goldberg's rant is that in order for the Religious Right to enjoy its "freedom to live conservatively," as Goldberg says, the Religious Right must make everyone else live conservatively too.
That is why the Religious Right is such a radical movement. It is undemocratic by nature -- and design. It needs to make the rest of us conform in order for it to enjoy what it calls "freedom." That's the whole point of the Moral Majority, the Christian Coalition, and why religious fundamentalists have organized a political movement to reform and "purify" a "liberal, secular, progressive" culture that the far right considers to be decadent.
Liberals are perfectly content with a live-and-let-live bargain with conservatives. Conservatives are not. They are offended every day by the things they see and hear in the larger culture and they find such (how did Goldberg put it?) "narrow conceptions of diversity" intolerable. So, they must change them by having America conform to a "biblical worldview," to Biblical law.
Now, propagandists like Goldberg are smart enough to recognize that the "freedom" to live as one chooses is not compatible with the "imposition" of a conservative worldview the radical right needs to prevail in order to live freely as conservatives. So the right needs to turn the tables by redefining the neutrality of the democratic nationstate in matters of faith and morals into an aggressive liberal/progressive assault on Christianity (and all religion) instead, "using the state to impose secularism on society."
The frame flip here is turning "secularism" -- meaning neutrality in morals and religion -- into one more competing "religion." And by doing this, the right wing scores a twofer: They can accuse liberals of violating the Constitution's First Amendment prohibition against the "establishment of religion." And they can claim that liberals are guilty of an unpardonable religious bigotry for refusing to permit Christian fundamentalists to convert them to the Religious Right's rigid orthodoxy.
The charges of Goldberg and the Religious Right make no sense, either logically or empirically. But this faux victimization resonates powerfully with a demographic that is already receptive to apocalyptic messages and visions of martyrdom. Hence the popularity of Glenn Beck, who some of my more unhinged relatives are now calling "a prophet."
Lindsey's essay thus represents the leading edge of what is perhaps an important turning point in our poltics if it signals a welcoming fracturing of a conservative movement that has dominated American politics for more than 30 years but which has always been a fragile, unstable and ultimately contradictory coalition between those who think "greed is good" and those who believe that virtually everything is bad.

We're in a Recession Because the Rich Are Raking in an Absurd Portion of Wealth
By Robert Reich as per AlterNet and Susie
Excerpt: Our economy can't thrive when the richest 1% get an ever larger share of the nation's income and wealth, and everyone else's share shrinks.
The structural reason for the Great Recession still haunts America. That reason is America's surging [income] inequality.
Consider: in 1928 the richest 1 percent of Americans received 23.9 percent of the nation's total income. After that, the share going to the richest 1 percent steadily declined. New Deal reforms, followed by World War II, the GI Bill and the Great Society expanded the circle of prosperity [all progressive legislature]. By the late 1970s the top 1 percent raked in only 8 to 9 percent of America's total annual income. But after that, inequality began to widen again, and income reconcentrated at the top. By 2007 the richest 1 percent were back to where they were in 1928—with 23.5 percent of the total.
Each of America's two biggest economic crashes occurred in the year immediately following these twin peaks. When —in 1929 and 2008. This is no mere coincidence. When most of the gains from economic growth go to a small sliver of Americans at the top, the rest don't have enough purchasing power to buy what the economy is capable of producing. America's median wage, adjusted for inflation, has barely budged for decades. Between 2000 and 2007 it actually dropped.
The problem isn't that typical Americans have spent beyond their means. It's that their means haven't kept up with what the growing economy could and should have been able to provide them.
None of us can thrive in a nation divided between a small number of people receiving an ever larger share of the nation's income and wealth, and everyone else receiving a declining share. The lopsidedness not only diminishes economic growth but also tears at the social fabric of our society.

Exhibit B: Myopic Corporate Greed
By Yves Smith via KOS
Excerpt: What it boils down to, IMHO, is when corporations are stripmining their near-record profits, as opposed to reinvesting them in times of economic downturns, the results for society are devastating.
Combine this reality with a legislative branch in complete corporatocratic rapture (i.e.: regulatory capture, deep capture), and you have the recipe for where we are with our economy, today.
...we need to set fiscal policy to the task of incentivizing the reinvestment of corporate profits in business operations rather than games at the casino.
Possible measures to achieve these aims include:
1) an aggressive tax on retained earnings that are not reinvested with a 24 month period after they have been booked (this provision needs to be designed carefully to defeat efforts to circumvent it through artful accounting);
2) a financial asset turnover tax that raises the cost to management (and others) of speculating rather than reinvesting profits in productive capital investment;
3) a reinvigorated public or public/private investment program that helps speed up the shift to new energy technologies (as scaling up usually induces a drop in unit costs of production).

Will Rogers was a progressive heroe of his time. He was an American cowboy, comedian, humorist, social commentator, vaudeville performer and actor and one of the best-known celebrities in the 1920s and 1930s. He was the leading political wit of the Progressive Era, and was the top-paid movie star in Hollywood at the time. Rogers died in 1935 with aviator Wiley Post, when their small airplane crashed near Barrow, Alaska Territory.
Widely quoted, here are a couple of my favorites:
"I am not a member of an organized political party. I am a Democrat."
"I never met a man I didn't like"
"Democrats never agree on anything, that's why they're Democrats. If they agreed with each other, they would be Republicans."
And the present day Republican mantra:
"If stupidity got us in this mess, why can't it get us out?" Vote GOP in 2012

After my rants, I get asked - "well, what's the plan, Che?"
Good Question! At first I drew a blank. Knee jerk one-off sniper shot or direct confrontation didn't look like it was going to work more than once. That is not the way to get things done or change much of anything. Militias... well, more of the one-and-done crowd so no lasting effect there either. Just more people in the line of fire and that's not a good thing ever.
The one and done would be fine if I was like Jack Ruby and only had months to live, but unfortunately only the good die young and it looks like I am going to live a looooong time.
So - let's take a look at the Media: Print, Radio, Cable/TV, Web.
In the words of Noam Chomsky, “He who controls the media controls the minds of the public”.
I agree. The numbers don't lie. Fox News has the highest ratings of all the cable and network news shows and recently was voted "Most Trusted Name In News". I almost can't type it I find this so digusting.. (eww.. get it off me!).
Now, how do liberals turn that juggernaut around? Well... again there is the "guns" solution. (note: I still am looking for that balance from when I was a non-violent liberal to the more aggressive liberal and sometimes tilt to the more violent side just because I am still trying to get used to it. You will too! Don't give up, it just takes some time and practice.)
Meanwhile, the people who don't have the resources to find out the truth and get it out in front of the public's eyes, your readers/viewers, you're supposed to be working for them — and they're not getting your help. What the hell are we doing in Afghanistan? Is it worth all the bloodshed and the hatred? Who are the people running this thing, what is their agenda, and is that agenda the same thing we voted for? By the severely unlikely virtue of a drunken accident we get a tiny glimpse of an answer to some of these vital questions, but instead of cheering this as a great break for our profession, a waytago moment, one so-called reputable journalist after another lines up to protest the leak and attack the reporter for doing his job. God, do you all suck! "

If Americans understood the real ambitions of Ronald Reagan and his puppeteers, and if they knew the degree to which the supposed patriotism of those folks extended beyond falsity and into the far darker waters of being an irritating irrelevance put on purely for show, then they would not only stop seeing Reagan as some sort of national hero, but would also understand that he instead launched a process far more equivalent to an invasion and occupation of this country.
The goal of the right – which cares about America about as much as it does about Burkina Faso – has been to restore the economic order last seen under Herbert Hoover, in which a tiny minority possess vast sums of wealth and there is (therefore) essentially no remaining middle class. It is nothing short of a breathtaking display of a world class greed, worthy of the ages.
It has also been a work of strategic genius (in much the same way one might appreciate the Germans’ engineering prowess in figuring out the logistics of how to mass murder ten or twelve million civilians in a year or two), one which has drawn upon deep psychological insights, absolutely sociopathic amoralism, and clever tactics that have all simultaneously pushed in the same direction. In plain English, they hired some politicians of hit-man level moral integrity, who then marshaled fear, insecurity, hate and deceit into a witch’s brew of self-destruction that would prove highly attractive to a large segment of the population already sinking from the effects of a global economic order rebalancing after decades of post-war American dominance.
But wait, there's more!
And so, despite the astonishing illogic of it all, the American people now clamor for more harm to be brought upon themselves and more of their money to be looted for the further enrichment of the wealthiest one-tenth of one percent of the population. It certainly doesn’t help that the supposed “party of the people” is every bit as much a part of the problem as anyone else, and arguably far more so given the extra measure of disingenuousness involved. From NAFTA to WTO to welfare ‘reform’ to the Telecommunications Bill, Wall Street never had better friend in the White House than Bill Clinton. That is, until Barack Obama simply outright changed the address of Goldman Sachs’ headquarters to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. As we speak, the president and his party in Congress are busy gutting meaningful ‘reform’ of the shamelessly gluttonous finance industry, just as their masters have ordered them to do. And if you think Obama’s bad now, wait until after November. Like Clinton in 1994, he will take the trouncing he’s about to receive in the election as a signal to move even further to the right.
And thus the Reagan Occupation inches closer yet to a full-blown “mission accomplished”. The middle class is on its knees and shrinking fast. Unions have been broken into irrelevance. Government, supposedly an agent of the public interest, has become a complete tool of those it is meant to monitor. Both political parties are fully owned by the oligarchy. The public has been brainwashed into seeing its allies as enemies and its enemies as allies. We have been drained of hope that any actor on the horizon can come to our rescue.
Read the rest here, it is very, very good.

Out to clubs at night, I used to "lurk" around the band when they took a break if they had a blues bone and no harp player - and offer my services. They would always look down the nose and I would say - have a listen. That changed everything - their eyes would get all big, the tone would become most reverential then they'd ask me my name, tell me they would call me up to the stage next set and as an aside - and almost invariably, ask me if I knew Caledonia. Just so happens I do....

Oh, and Before I Forget - Happy Mother's Day!
And speaking of Mother's Day... why is it that on Mother's Day all my married friends disappear, slaves to their spouses who know, KNOW and have been taught that on Mother's Day all men are to bow and scrape all day long.
Now, let's take Father's day..... What do father's usually do on Father's Day? Get as far away from their spouses as they can. Go fishing, take a long hike, hang with their buds at Kerryman's. Why? Because THEY have been taught that today they can do whatever they want and the wife can't ask who, where or when... because it's Father's Day!
Here is the summary (or the crux of the biscuit) - on Mother's Day the wives want the husbands home... on Father's day the husbands want to get the fuck away. Well... I hate to generalize, but... that's the way it is in this conservative neighborhood. With one exception.

So… where is the ficticious benevolent benefactor outlined in TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMICS from RONNY RAYGUNS?! (Aside) I feel Ron really wasn’t a bad guy until the fanatical right got a-hold of him and convinced him… (Salesmen and actors are the easiest marks in the business..) that they were right and the liberals were wrong. After that – the last 30 years were charted as a course from middle class rule to plutocracy by the plutocrtacy buying influence along the way… believe it. He was the great communicator even if the message was Manchurian Candidate Corporate.. line by line…. All the Jane Wyman wannabes and Commie haters (oh, and "Commie" encapsulated a whole host of baddies for the fearful patriarchic population - (yep) you heard that right - to be afraid of. From the DFH's to the the civil rights do-gooders and for the first time (I believe) the evangelicals chimed in playing the SIN card in Times Square in NYC... Now the fearful had a reason to bow, scrape and believe!!! I BELIEVE in trickle down economics… I BELIEVE in a stronger American Defense.. I BELIEVE that all liberals are hateful, interbreeding SCUM!!! I believe…
And so… the “Liberal Media” bent over and asked “ please may I have another - because at the same time they were being handed checks… Oh baby…. Glorious cash!! Tons of it!! So now… who in the middle class.. oh, excuse me – been downgraded to lower middle class… has enough dough to go on TV and plead their case against the multi-national mega corporations that want you to work for $8.00 an hour or they will ship your job to …………… (fill in the blank for the next corporate/Blackwater takeover of a cheap labor country… there are still a few left) or to ask for a living wage?
These days it's:
One Nation Under Mammon by the corporations, for the corporations and FUCK everyone else and that means you. Bagger or not… Oh, and if you ain’t got at least $600 large in the bank.. the Rapture will definitely ask you for ID….

I hear this shit all the time like it was yesterday. My conservative friends cling to to the bridge in Chappaquidic like it was their fucking bible or gun... amazing, and after all these years - BUT no more...
When she was 17 years old, the future wife of Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush, then known as Laura Welch, made a mistake that killed her boyfriend.
On Nov. 5, 1963, at 8 p.m., Laura was driving east on Farm Road 868 in her hometown of Midland en route to a party. At a dangerous intersection, she allegedly failed to see Mike Douglas, also 17, heading south on State Road 369.
Laura, traveling with her best friend Judy Dykes and allegedly chatting about clothes, collided with Douglas' Jeep, which was doorless. He was thrown from the vehicle and broke his neck, dying instantly.
"She didn't see him, he didn't see her," says Dan Harris, who also was cruising Midland that night, with Laura's close friend Beverly Girdley.
"It was a terrible accident."
Yah - right.... it was a sinister plot -

Holy Mutha-shaggin' Mary and Joseph - How did such IGNORANT people get in charge of such destructive products???
Brown skinned people didn't take away your job (you ignorant assholes) ed.

(see above) brown skinned people didn't give their executives millions in compensation while firing thousands (see above) brown skinned people didn't hide billions of dollars offshore in order to not pay taxes (see above) brown skinned people didn't almost destroy the world's economy hedging bets on credit default swaps (see above) see a pattern here? Where should the real anger be directed?
