Romney Told 27 Myths In 38 Minutes

Not to worry. Obama is still firmly in the lead in the polls. Take a look at the electoral vote projections if you get time. Obama has all but won already.  (Oct 6, 2012 | post #76)

Obama says he wants "to export more jobs".

Seems like it is Romney that has actually been exporting all the jobs to China. Look at Bain's record.  (Oct 5, 2012 | post #9)

Mitt Romney debates himself

Romney's plan is to pretty much lie his ass off and hope enough voters can't figure out the truth about him.  (Oct 5, 2012 | post #9)

GOP: Vote for us, and we’ll stop sabotaging the economy

You must be talking about Bush's recession. Oh, and you also forget to mention that the Republicans are doing everything they can to prolong the recession, which is about as unpatriotic as you can get.  (Jun 5, 2012 | post #3)

New poll shows Minnesotans oppose anti-marriage amendment

If folks got to vote on integration in 1965, they would have turned it down. The good news is that as the old wingnut dinosaurs die off, a new generation of voters that accept different cultures are growing up.  (Jun 5, 2012 | post #3)

BREAKING: Senate GOP Blocks Pay Equity Bill

Today, Republicans in the Senate blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act by filibustering the bill. The legislation would have strengthened protections for women who are being paid less because of their gender by creating larger penalties for employers who discriminate, creating more transparency of salaries so that women know whether they are being paid less, and protecting those who sue for pay equity. Republicans framed the measure as a useless bureaucratic roadblock that would have hindered free enterprise and helped trial lawyers. Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) called the bill a “war on free enterprise.” But Heller’s record on women’s issues is far from stellar: He previously voted against Paycheck Fairness when he was in the House of Representatives and also voted against the Lily Ledbetter Fair pay act, another pay equity bill. Pay discrimination isn’t some fantasy of the left — it actually prevents families from higher earnings. On average, women make 77 cents to a man’s dollar. And that’s happening while more women are becoming the primary breadwinners or dual-earners in their family and a larger number of women with high degrees entering the job market. Over her lifetime, the average woman loses enough in wages to feed a family of four for 37 years. The Paycheck Fairness Act has become an election issue, as well. Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-NV), who is challenging Heller, cited his opposition as a sign that he is one of the warriors in the ongoing battle to destroy women’s rights. In Missouri, the Senatorial candidates have also butted heads on Paycheck Fairness (all three Republican candidates opposed the bill). And in the Presidential election, President Obama has come out strongly in favor of the bill, while Mitt Romney has kept silent on the issue. Update The measure was blocked by a 52-47 vote. Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) was absent for medical reasons. Majority Harry Reid switched his vote so that the bill could come up for another vote at some point down the road.  (Jun 5, 2012 | post #1)

Verizon CEO's $22M bonus could cover salaries of laid off...

This is a classic of how corporations behave. The skyrocketing pay of CEOs is hurting corporations and making them less competitive. What would happen if Verizon took $50M of the $350M they paid their CEO and reinvested in their company? Furthermore, as a customer of Verizon this is disgusting. America's largest wireless service provider plans to cut 1,700 jobs by offering its technicians and call center employees buyouts. Verizon Communications announced last week that it would reduce its nationwide workforce by 1 percent, and if enough workers don't accept the buyouts, it will resort to involuntary layoffs. Verizon paid chief executive Lowell C. McAdam more than $22.5 million in 2011, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of executive compensation. The company has paid its top five executives more than $350 million in the last five years, according to the Communications Workers of America, the union that deals most directly with Verizon: When my contract is up and I can find a viable alternative for my iPhone, I'll switch.  (Jun 5, 2012 | post #1)
