I agree with you about what happened to our good old Republican party, the party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Eisenhower. I also agree that the mess Obama inherited was Republican-made, made by the "new" Republicans that is.

Like it or not (and I do not) we seem to be headed back to an economic structure like the one that the USA had 100 years ago, but with the big difference that we are no longer a great industrial manufacturing powerhouse. The rich will get richer. Everybody else will get poorer.

Yes, but not news to me. I have heard that same sermon from my history professor friend and the Klingon lady economist (she hates "Austrian" economics with a passion) many times before.

The same thing that happens to the surgeon happens to farmers as well. Even though an individual farmer may invest a million dollars in land, equipment, fertilizer, and other inputs, and risk it every growing season, he is taxed at the higher rate. A one million dollar farming operation is not that big either. A grain farmer who is a "one combine" operation has over $500,000 invested in the one combine grain harvester alone. A cotton farmer has over $700,000 in his cotton picker.

Two reasons to cheer for president obama!
The lies about weapons of mass destruction fell down upon the people of the United States like water rushing down Niagara Falls as Cheney, Bush and Rumsfeld used fear to jump start a war early last decade.

Republicans are, after all, good at sales and marketing. They are masters of getting voters to either buy or support products that they don't need - or using propaganda and mendacious campaigns to create a state of abject fear that succumbs to the government launching a military invasion allegedly to ensure national security.

In fact, in the summer of 2002, White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card dismissed the notion that the administration would start pushing a war with Iraq at that time. To paraphrase Card's remark, "You don't start pushing a war until the fall, when people are back from vacation."

There is the indelible farcical, pathetic and vile image, of course, of George W. Bush pretending to "comically" search for weapons of mass destruction under the dais table at a White Horse Correspondents' Dinner. The stenographers of the DC press corps ignominiously roared with laughter.

The US public was conned into a ruinous war, with tens of thousands of Iraqi and US lives lost, trillions of dollars spent and a nation now in bloody chaos.

Amidst the tragedy of the current Iraq civil war, according to The Guardian a devastating irony has occurred. The Guardian's headline from today reads, "Isis seizes former chemical weapons plant in Iraq." So the maniacal war for empire undertaken with fulsome jingoism and assertions of Iraqis greeting our soldiers with flowers has achieved full blowback. What is left of Hussein's weapons of mass destruction - which had been under UN inspection and had deteriorated seriously since the early 1990s - is now under the control of a terrorist group that even al-Qaeda considers too extreme.

Another Reason to cheer for our great President OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!

RIGHT POWER!!!!!!!!!!

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, seemed to catch everyone off guard Wednesday when he suddenly pulled the plug on his committee hearing before witnesses could even testify.

Issa read his opening statement for the hearing on potential abuses of taxpayer funds by the White House's new political office, and let his Democratic counterpart, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), read his statement before declaring the hearing over. Two witnesses who came prepared to testify were dismissed. A source who was in the hearing said one of Issa's witnesses, Carolyn Lerner, the director of the independent Office of Special Counsel, appeared to leave angrily.

"She didn't say a single thing," said this source, who requested anonymity. "She literally just left the hearing room."

So what happened?

A Cummings aide said he had no warning the hearing would be cut off before anyone could testify, and said there was no reason for doing so.

A request for comment from Issa's office was not returned.

But two things were apparent to those following the hearing: First, Issa began the hearing irritated that the White House had dismissed his subpoena to compel Obama's political office director, David Simas, to testify. He called it "deeply disturbing" that White House counsel Neil Eggleston said Simas was immune from a congressional subpoena. Second, and perhaps more tellingly, Issa may have wanted to prevent Lerner from testifying since, based on the written testimony she provided ahead of the hearing, she was planning to say the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach had done nothing inappropriate, which contradicted Issa's claims leading up to the hearing.

Lerner's shop is charged with enforcing the federal Hatch Act's prohibitions against federal employees engaging in political activity, which makes her the go-to person in the event of allegations of wrongdoing by the White House political office. She was prepared to tell the committee she did her homework and found nothing wrong.

Another Reason to cheer for our great President OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!

RIGHT POWER!!!!!!!!!!

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and another senior House Republican profited off the kind of corporate inversion deal that the Obama administration wants Congress to halt, Bloomberg News reported Tuesday.

Both Boehner and Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.), the Republican committee chairman who oversees tax policy, reporting selling stock in Covidien Plc within nine days of an announcement that Medtronic Inc. was planning a takeover of the company. The stock price of Covidien jumped after the announcement of the deal, under which the new merged company would be based in Ireland and avoid paying U.S. corporate taxes, according to Bloomberg.

Obama has railed against this inversion maneuver as unpatriotic – the equivalent of a corporation renouncing its U.S. citizenship — but neither Boehner nor Camp have joined calls for Congress to curb the practice this year. They have both said it should be addressed in a broader overhaul of the tax code, which isn't going to pass anytime soon.

Bloomberg cited public disclosure filings in its report. The actions by the lawmakers were legal, and their spokesmen told Bloomberg that their bosses had no knowledge of the trades because they rely on investment advisers to do their bidding. They also both still hold stock in the company.

Just another reason to cheer for our great President Obama!!!!!!!!!!

Right Power!!!!!!!!!

n a growing trend, Tennessee looks like it will be the next Republican-led state to move toward expanding Medicaid under Obamacare.

The Tennessean reported that Gov. Bill Haslam (R) said Thursday that Tennessee would aim to submit a Medicaid expansion plan to the Department of Health and Human Services "some time this fall." The program would cover more than 150,000 low-income residents in the state.

Like 24 other states, almost all of them with statehouses controlled by Republicans, Tennessee declined to expand Medicaid in the initial rollout of Obamacare last year, leaving tens of thousands of people uninsured. Since then two of those states have changed course and embraced Medicaid expansion, and another three states have expressed an interest in doing so. Tennessee now joins the latter group.

Tennessee and HHS have had some informal negotiations, including meetings between Haslam and then-HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, over the last few years. Haslam said on Thursday that he recently spoke by phone with Sebelius's successor, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, and that he hoped to set up a meeting with Burwell soon, according to The Tennessean.

Haslam has floated a "private option" plan, using Medicaid dollars to pay for private coverage, as has been done in Arkansas and Iowa. Other pieces of the Tennessee plan could include co-payments and incentives for healthy behavior, based on the governor's past public comments.

Such a modified Medicaid expansion would require approval from HHS. The agency has already shown willingness to accept alternative plans and approved Thursday a proposal from Pennsylvania with some similar features.

I seriously doubt that. Check back with me in 2023. After all, it's only fair to allow his successor at least 6 years to undo the damage he did to the country, right?
