The Consensus Opinion: Ryan Speech Full of Lies, Now It's Romney's Turn

In the words of Fox News’ Sally Kohn: Paul Ryan’s RNC speech “was an attempt to set the world record for blatant lies,” a Fox News opinion that joined in unusual comradery with the likes of the Huffington Post and ThinkProgress in their expose of Ryan after the fact-check process.  One can only ponder the whoppers set to come...

Romney-Ryan 2012: Hypocrites Incarnate and Extraordinaire . . .

Willard “Mitt” Romney, today further exposed his vision of the world as one filled with entitlement and hypocrisy in choosing the Ayn Rand devotee Paul Ryan as his running mate –  strange bedfellows are the deceased and oft discredited atheist Rand and the somewhat recently maligned Catholic Ryan. Equally strange is that as a child,... Read more »

Norwegian Socialists "Buying Up America" With THEIR Surpluses!

A killer article in Daily Finance on Norway and its implementation of the successful, user-friendly, modern “Nordic model” of Socialism . . . and how they, as much as anyone else, are “buying America”. . . . and guess what?  For those who think that the riches of the few are the measure of the “vibrancy” of a...

On the Tragedy in Colorado . . .

As we see elite conservatives desperately trying to cling to the last vestiges of post-colonial privilege and status, duping the working-class to side with them along the way in cutting every social safety net like Edward Scissorhands and leaving a dystopia in the wake that would make Orwell, Vonnegut, and Huxley blush what do we we see: a structurally user “unfriendly”...

How Romney-Ryan-Walker May Be Creating . . . Obama Republicans?

Gone are the days when the Republican Party might hope to win over a few conservative Democrats in the manner that Ronald Reagan was said to have in 1980 and 1984.  The Republican’s now need to be more concerned about an exodus of moderate Republicans to an increasingly perceived moderate, 3rd-way and centrist Democratic Party. In... Read more »

Their "Liberty," Our "Tyranny"

In the current wave of rhetorical bumper-sticker jargon and esoteric jibber-jabber, perhaps no concept reigns supreme over the hyperbolic as much as the mythical attachment to the notions of “liberty” and “freedom” and the delusion that there is but one definition for each term.  Both ideals as employed in much contemporary usage are offered up...

Romney/Ryan "Austerity": A Blueprint to Compete With the Developing World

The news out of Europe yesterday vis-a-vis “austerity” or the reduction in governmental spending should send shivers down the spines of America’s middle and lower classes.  In the Netherlands, there has been a call for early elections and in the United Kingdom riots erupted as Britain posted its second straight quarter of negative growth, denoting a double-dip...

The UK economy has returned to recession, after shrinking by 0.2% in the first three months of 2012.  A Willard “Mitt” Romney/Paul Ryan budget has been forecast by many leading economists  to bring the same regression to the United States.  Full story . . .

Ayn Rand; Leader of the Lollipop Guild

Enough already with Ayn Rand! Yes, we get it Paul Ryan and others like Illinois’ own Joe Walsh who have made mythical this wannabe (and in her day marginal) writer.  We get that you want to resurrect her longing for the feudal, aristocratic [Eurocentric] order from whence she was born into and the one I wrote about earlier...

Limbaugh, Ryan and the Republicans: what, then, is their case for allegiance?

I really would like to know what kind of “allegiance“ Republicans think the average person should pledge to the country in which they envision? A country so callous that it doesn’t concern itself with the health and welfare of its citizens, wants to erode the social safety net, degrade environmental protection and otherwise realize their Ayn Randian dystopia; reducing to...
