start rant


mitch mcconnellNine years ago, in September of 2001, America was under attack and the whole country, regardless of party, joined together to vanquish the enemies of our democracy.

America is under attack again, this time from within as corporate fat-cats and congressional conservatives have joined forces to destroy democracy from within. Their mission statement came courtesy of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell who said that the GOP's big plan for the next two years is, and I quote, "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president."

This basically means they will continue to do everything in their power to prevent domestic job growth, just as they have since Jaunary of 2009.

This is because they have no plan for economic recovery. None. In fact, it benefits their corporate masters if wages continue to slide and people lose their homes. The homeless will work for almost nothing. Such is the capitalist dream.

Can you imagine if, back in October of 2002, the Democratic party stated that their single, unified goal was to make George W. Bush a one-term president? (If only, although let's not forget that George wasn't elected the first time, merely awarded the Presidency by a 'one-time-only' decision by the Supreme Court.)

It's safe to say that many, many Democrats would have lost their jobs, if not their heads, as the result of making such a brash statement during those troubled times. Why the Republicans can so blithely make such a sweeping statement, when millions of Amricans face economic disaster, and get away with it is simply infuriating.

Such avaricous bastards as these deserve the public stocks, not stock options.

Just sayin'.



Rally To Restore Sanity Comes Home!

Rally your ass off!

wanted, fervently, to attend the Rally to Restore Sanity rally this coming 30th of October, but three days, minimum, away from the office wasn't in the cards for me.

So I was elated to hear that the rally has metastacized, in a good way, and is now in almost every state in the union. In addition, several foreign sites are hosting their own rally, too.

The nearest rally to me is in Austin, Texas and currently there are about 3500 RSVPs. (Rumors that a Dallas rally is in the offing, too) But the word is spreading and the numbers are growing. Share this info with a friend or two, won't you?

To find the rally location nearest you go to

This is good news to a lot of people but, seriously, if you can make the Washington, D.C. event then please, by all means, go. Tell 'em Lefty sent ya.
