  • Who is "Economy in Crisis"?

    03/30/2016 1:21:12 PM PDT · by Uncle Miltie · 50 replies
    Economy In Crisis ^ | 03-30-2016 | Economy in Crisis Website
    The rapid deterioration of our economy is attributable to the wholesale liquidation of our best companies to foreign interests. The U.S. has sold more than 16,000 of our best companies in the last 30 years to these foreign interests. This trend erodes our ability to generate earnings, and tax revenues to sustain our current standard of living – resulting in our reliance on imports thus creating uncontrolled and escalating foreign debt. Holding our debt our jobs and the production of our goods, foreign countries have ultimate leverage over our policies and our future. If we allow this to continue, it...

    Tea party activists are heartened by a federal appeals court ruling that strengthens their legal push against the Internal Revenue Service for alleged targeting in past election cycles. A three-judge panel of the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals chastised government foot-dragging while ordering the agency to give attorneys for tea party groups details on tax-exempt applicants. A U.S. district court judge in Cincinnati earlier this year certified the case as a class action. …

    Judge: Citizens United Must Disclose Donor Information to NY NEW YORK — Jul 27, 2015 A nonprofit conservative organization advocating for less government must disclose information about its major donors to New York's attorney general if it wants to solicit money in the state, a judge said Monday. U.S. District Judge Sidney Stein said it appeared that Citizens United will not succeed in a lawsuit it brought on First Amendment grounds to try to block disclosures of the information to Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, including names, addresses and the total contributions of major donors. The judge noted that there is...

    A significant number of social and personality psychologists have told researchers they would discriminate against conservatives in decisions about publishing, grant applications and hiring, according to a study published in the September issue of the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science. Authors Dr. Yoel Inbar and Dr. Joel Lammers assert in the study the more liberal the psychologist claimed to be, the more likely they were to admit to anti-conservative discrimination.... "By excluding those who disagree with (most of) us politically," Inbar and Yammers concluded, "we treat them unfairly, do ourselves a disservice, and ultimately damage the scientific credibility of our...

    Forbes ^ | 04/12/2012 | John Tamny
    Rick Santorum dropped out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday. Almost to a column, editorial and news account, the analysis centered on Santorum’s somewhat successful capture of conservative voters. And there lies the mystery. How could a man seemingly so opposite of conservative have entranced so many voters who label themselves just that? The easy answer is that as someone who made his religion such a prominent part of his campaign strategy... religious types who tend toward conservatism perhaps felt they’d found their man.

Gay servicemen or servicewomen can no longer be discharged simply for being gay, but they are still treated inequitably. Only by using their newly won free speech can they hope to reap the same benefits as their straight colleagues.

    Miami Herald ^ | July 2, 2011 | Miami Herald Editorial
    The just-concluded Texas legislative session has armed Gov. Rick Perry with a host of red-meat issues that could entice conservative Republican voters if he jumps into the wide-open presidential primary race. But analysts say some of those issues could carry consequences in reaching broader constituencies in the general election match-up against President Barack Obama. Texas' longest-serving governor burnished his conservative profile with legislative victories that included a no-tax budget with $15 billion in cuts, property rights protections, voter ID legislation and a bill requiring sonograms before abortions. Two other Perry-backed issues - an immigration measure to ban so-called sanctuary cities...

    A growing number of Republicans are breaking with the party's traditional stance to publicly state their support for same-sex marriage, a shift strategists say stems as much from demographics as from the renewed focus on economics and the "tea party" movement. A solid majority of adults younger than 30 - about six in 10 - support the right of gay and lesbian couples to legally wed, according to a Washington Post poll in February. But even many older Americans and self-identified social conservatives have changed their view on an issue that just six years ago galvanized voters in support of...

"This is another example of how the media ends up just completely distorting what's taking place," Obama said. "C'mon, guys!" he added later. The story started when the White House asked supporters to forward "fishy" claims about Democratic healthcare legislation, the goal being to check and refute those claims. Critics said that forwarding emails would let the White House compile a list of political opponents. Sen....

The bill, H.R. 1913, now will be considered by the full House of Representatives. The committee rejected a number of amendments offered by several members seeking to protect religious liberty, to protect the unborn, to protect against violence by illegal aliens, and to clarify the bill's meanings of "gender identity" and "sexual orientation."

It proceeds with the lead-footed deliberation of its 1950s predecessors to give us an alien invasion that is malevolent, destructive and, from the alien point of view, pointless. They've "been planning this for a million years" and have gone to a lot of trouble to invade Earth for no...

It's a good thing I was not at a microphone at that moment, I sufferred a 20-second bout with Tourette's Syndrome calling Ms. Sarandon every name in the book. For those who don't recall, she was pivotal in the...

    An al Qaeda Hit List?By Jeremy Reynalds (bio) Other Articles by Jeremy Reynalds Back to News / Home PageApparently determined not to be outdone by the United States, the terrorist group al Qaeda (or a sympathizer) has released a video with a deck of cards featuring its own most wanted. The "cards" (dangling above flames), could be considered an al Qaeda hit list. They feature a wide variety of individuals including Bush administration figures, lawmakers, the Spanish and Italian prime ministers and conservative American media personalities such as Rush Limbaugh and Bill O' Reilly. Notably, the card sequence begins...

    NEWS SUMMARY The first version published of yesterday's Note included what was intended as a SATIRICAL report of a fictional ABC News/Washington Post poll. No such poll was conducted. The questions and results listed were not from a real poll. But on this day when John Kerry has a chance for wins in Tennessee and/or Virginia that just might get the Southern monkey off of his back -- and take an opponent out of the race -- and after two full news cycles in which Kerry's transient upper hand over President Bush doesn't seem to have been removed by the...
  • Leftist Author On C-Span: "Not All Conservatives Are Racists or Neo-Nazis"

    01/07/2004 3:16:34 PM PST · by ComtedeMaistre · 20 replies · 183+ views
    Did any of you watch the entire Washington Journal show on C-SPAN yesterday? There was a leftist author named Daniel Levitas, who was promoting a book titled: "The Terrorist Next Door". Was the author discussing the terrorism of middle-eastern immigrants like Mohammed Atta, or the animal rights fanatics at ELF? No. That did not concern him. His book focuses exclusively on so-called "right-wing" extremists, of the sorts found in so-called "right-wing militias". Included in that group of right-wing terrorists, are anti-tax protesters, gun owners, those who thought Randy Weaver got a raw deal from the government, critics of Janet Reno's...

    AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF Wednesday, December 31, 2003 Willie Nelson woke up early Christmas morning at the Lake Elsinore, Calif., home of his in-laws and turned on the news. "There was nothing but bad news, and here it was Christmas Day," Nelson said. "I said, `There sure are a lot of babies dying and mothers crying,' and (wife) Annie said, `That sounds like a song.' " By the end of the day, Nelson had written the anti-war ballad "What Ever Happened to Peace on Earth," which he will debut at Saturday's fund-raising concert for Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich at Austin Music...

    Sunday, December 14th, 2003 We Finally Got Our Frankenstein... and He Was In a Spider Hole! -- by Michael Moore Thank God Saddam is finally back in American hands! He must have really missed us. Man, he sure looked bad! But, at least he got a free dental exam today. That's something most Americans can't get. America used to like Saddam. We LOVED Saddam. We funded him. We armed him. We helped him gas Iranian troops. But then he screwed up. He invaded the dictatorship of Kuwait and, in doing so, did the worst thing imaginable -- he threatened an...

    <p>In a June 6 speech about Medicare, President Bush said, "We must protect seniors from high medical costs that can rob them of their savings." And with the recently passed Medicare bill, which adds a prescription drug benefit to the government's health insurance program for seniors, the president claims to have done just that.</p>
