Veto Override Failed

For anyone wondering who's side the modern day Republicans stand, this article should leave little doubt. Basically, what happened is Congress tried by a secret vote to override Obama's veto on a bill that would give retroactive immunity to fraudulent banking activity.

Quantitative Easing - QE2

So, now that the Fed has announced QE2, there's been quite a stir.

Sarah Palin, China, the European Union, Greenspan and about 20 conservative columnists have come out against it.

The result of QE2 would be a lower priced currency. This would have the affect of increasing domestic production and intern possibly increasing the working class wages (that means you blue collar workers).

So, explain to me again, why QE2 is such a bad thing?

And if Palin, Greenspan and the right wing are siding with China and the European Union you've got to wonder where their loyalty lies.

Fox(Pulse), Gallup and Rasmussen Polling Way Off

Mark Blumenthal calculated the actual outcome was around +6R or +7R meaning Rasmussen, Fox(Pulse-Also Rasmussen) and Gallup were around +6R, +7R and +9R off.

Nate Silver of the blog Fivethirtyeight at the NYT stated Rasmussen on average had a +4R bias on the Congressional and Senate races.

Knowing all of this, I'd like to know what the actual Presidential approval ratings are since they use the LV model screening that's been proven to be way off.

Selfishness disguised as liberty. Power wearing a mask of freedom. Free trade tearing our working class apart hidden under the facade of patriotism.

The War on America Has Begun

The war on America has begun. Koch and The Chamber of Commerce have fired the first shots. The Oligarchs push to lower our standard of living will continue until anyone short of a billionaire will no longer have a say.

Selfishness disguised as liberty. Power wearing a mask of freedom. Free trade tearing our working class apart hidden under the facade of patriotism.

Anyone who gives a damn needs to repudiate these libertarian ideas. Libertarians are the true enemies of this country.

They don't want our Constitution. They hate our laws. They hate the idea of the United States.
