Why not progressive?

At times I'm frustrated by those that don't follow politics in the United States. I worry they don't vote, I worry they don't get their opinion out there. Of course, I am very progressive and very much in opposition to the right, however, I'm being inspired by a much greater goal than politics. Politics is all cyclical. It's not important in the grand scheme of things. The important part of life is what all the regular people are doing. I'm changing the focus of this blog a bit. Not because I think the Tea Party won the midterms or anything like that but because I want to elevate us above that sort of derogatory nonsense into something that is far more useful. Something to save us and save the world. Small goals, I know. But seriously something to talk about.

Rep. Bachmann Fact Check

Political Correction did a fact check on Rep. Michelle Bachmann's (R - MN 6th) rebuttal and provided some interesting evidence supporting the fact that she lies.  Take a look:  Fact Checking

An Excellent Quote on S. Palin

This quote is classic.  It's from Louis CK and spot on:

How f***ing sacred is this person who's never contributed one thing to anyone's life but her own? And not even thinking about her politically or whatever she represents, it's just that she's just a coarse, selfish person who has ferocious protection and it makes no sense to me... By the way, I said something that I think is true, I wrote one Twitter that I said, please find me a picture of Sarah Palin with more than one black person because I couldn't find one. And then she went to Haiti a week later. She threw together a trip to Haiti. So I believe I made that happen. So that's positive.

Interesting Shift in Cable Networks

First Keith Olbermann resigns (or is fired) at MSNBC, then CNN starts courting the Tea Party Express.  Michelle Bachmann will have her rebuttal aired on the SOTU tonight not only on the internet, but on CNN.  Here's a quick look at what's happening at CNN.

Here's something to ponder......

10 things your congressperson doesn't tell you.  From the WSJ.  Thanks, Rupert. Where your money goes.

How Dumb Do Republicans Think We Are?

This is an extraordinary event that is all smoke and mirrors. For one thing, why the hell should republicans waste the time of the American people by reading the constitution aloud? These people have sworn an oath to the constitution. Did they swear to something they didn't even read? I've read it. I have it on my iPhone. This is part of the crap that is going to be shoveled down our throats for the next two years. The republicans WILL be voted out of office because of their obstructionist tendencies. Read this article and laugh aloud with me. Let's put on a show!

Democrats = Republicans...... We both behave the same way. Just don't deny it!

Whether you're a republican or a democrat we behave the same way, in terms of actions, but supporting our own ideology. Don't deny it! This is why I call republicans liars: Howard Kurtz.

Darrell Issa. King of car alarms.

This man is a two faced idiot.  His own party is responsible for the enormous issues we are facing but he's blaming the Obama administration.  I think it's a feeling of inadequacy more than corruption of power.  Or not. Nut Jobs in Congress
