Peter DeFazio = Truth

A politician telling the truth? I’m confused.

Peter DeFazio is spot on. The bail outs and tax cuts for the rich are killing this country. Derivatives don’t create jobs. Tax cuts on rich don’t create jobs. Demand creates jobs.

Cash in the hands of the poor and middle class creates demand which make jobs. When these people get money they spend it, which stimulates the economy. When the wealthy get money, they sit on it as long as they can. The rich won’t hire more people just for the sake of the economy. They would rather buy another private jet than understanding the bigger picture. In other words, Gordon Gekko was wrong – greed is not good. But I digress.

It’s a shame nobody with any real power will listen to DeFazio. The fact that most people don’t watch C-SPAN isn’t helping matters. C-SPAN could show graphic gay amputee midget porn, and nobody would complain to the FCC.

I never understood interventions. What’s the point of being told you drink too much from a room full of reasons why you drink in the first place?

A Republican is Occupy Wall Street’s Biggest Donor

“I made a lot of money, things just worked out for me,” he said. ”There’s some issues where we’re all in it together … The people who have money, they should pay something more, whether that’s in taxes or somewhere else.”

Those are the words of Robert Halper. The biggest financial backer of the Occupy Wall Street protests. He is a former big time oil trader, a Republican, and a Mitt Romney supporter. What?!

Yep, it’s true. Mr. Halper so far has donated $20,000 to the anti-capitalist movement.

Though I don’t agree with his political affiliation, it’s nice to see a millionaire that get’s it. Halper understands the system he is in needs to change so his wealth will survive. The price of oil would drop beyond belief if the middle class and poor didn’t have the money to spend. In other words, the little guy needs to survive if the rich desire to stay rich.

Pat Buchanan: America Is Disintegrating Because White America Is An Endangered Species

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Pat Buchanan is a racist.

I know it’s not shocking. This is the same man who wanted Arthur Rudolph (ex-Nazi) citizenship restored.

Last Tuesday (October 17th) Buchanan was in Fox News pimping his new book,  Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? Book is about Mr. Buchanan’s belief that  that America is “disintegrating” because “White America is an endangered species.

In my opinion (the only one that matters) Pat Buchanan is the type of racist that is in denial because he doesn’t hate us for being Black, he hates us because he believes African Americans are born to be criminals. He thinks we just can’t help ourselves. This man is a quack. I’m not surprised Fox News had him on.

There’s a part of the interview that unexpectedly made me chuckle a little.

BUCHANAN: It goes — the Hispanic goes 60 to 70 percent Democratic. Asian-Americans which is a bit of a surprise, 60 to 70 percent. Africans- Americans, 90 to 95 percent. That’s what Barack Obama got.

What I’m saying is, if that is half of the country, and Republicans will never win another election.

Well undercover racist Mr. Buchanan, Republicans could try to reach out to these people and try to explain why a conservative political way of life is more beneficial. Unfortuntely, it turns out a plethora of the GOP and their supporters are filled with bigots who use the bible to promote their hatred. Turns out, that’s a tough sale. Who knew? Read more…
