Why the Rich Get Richer: 145 Million Non-VotersSchmidtMay 26, 20152342
"After they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want the keys back. No! You can't drive. We don't want to have to go back into the ditch. We just got the car out." – President Obama slamming Republicans on the campaign trail, May 2010.President Obama was referring to the Republicans of the Bush administration whose recklessness in fiscal policies and legislation helped bring on the Great Recession. Behind those Republicans are the plutocrats, using their lobbyists, SuperPacs, and something called the Kochtopus to buy and/or influence our elected representatives.
The Strategy behind the “Party of No” to obstruct job growthSchmidtMay 18, 201524575
“We as Americans and as humans have very selective hearing and very selective memory. We only hear what we want to hear and disregard the rest.” – Frank Luntz, Republican strategist...Shortly after Barack Obama’s inauguration as President on January 20, 2009, Vice President Joe Biden, who spent 36 years in the Senate fostering cooperative relationships with Senators from both parties, visited Capitol Hill to seek his former colleagues’ help in passing legislation to stop the freefall in the economy.
Trans-Pacific Partnership: Is Trade Good for America?SchmidtMay 12, 201513246
The question, “Is trade good for America?” may seem a little trite to some, but in watching and listening to the heated rhetoric on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement, it is a question that one might ask to gauge how much the public has become so polarized on this issue. While some opponents of trade agreements might answer with a quick “no”, others will recognize the importance of trade, not only to America, but to the world. As long as humans have existed as tribes on this planet they have engaged in trade.
What is really happening to jobs in America?SchmidtMay 7, 201512231
"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." --Thomas Watson, president of IBM, 1943.Sometimes the future is beyond even a CEO’s power of imagination. Sales of personal computers, tablets and smart phones worldwide in the year 2014 topped 2.4 billion, with 88 percent of sales attributable to tablets and smart phones. The impact that computers have had on jobs in America and the rest of the world is astounding. Millions of jobs have been lost to computerization, but millions of new jobs requiring different skills have also been created around computers and the internet.
You (Yes, You) Can Help Stop Police Brutality in AmericajaredsxtnApr 30, 201514303
The tide is turning and it is turning much faster than many realize. While many Americans may watch the seemingly never ending videos of police officers using excessive force throughout every corner of our country and want to give up hope, I look at those same videos and think that the people of this country are on the verge of achieving a real and lasting change with the way our police conduct business. It's not going to happen today and it's not going to happen tomorrow, but it will happen if we join together and demand a change of the status quo.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership: Why I support President ObamaSchmidtApr 29, 201522576
"If you want to go face to face with me President Obama, I'm ready to go because I have the facts!" – Ed Schultz responding to President Obama for calling out MSNBC for its opposition to the TPP. For anyone who is paying attention, the pending Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement has become another polarizing issue in America, but this time it has largely divided the progressive liberals from moderate Democrats and Republicans. Unions especially are dead set against it, and their opposition goes all the way back to 2010, shortly after the negotiations on the trade deal started.
Bibi's Win Provides Obama With a Clean Slate in the Peace ProcessjaredsxtnMar 24, 201532707
Benjamin Netanyahu's reelection left many of those who desperately want a peaceful solution to the decades old Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a sense of despair. The Prime Minister's victory, in many peoples eyes, virtually closes the door on any resolution between the two sides for the foreseeable future with no way of knowing when or if talks between the two sides will start again. This may be true in the short term, but Netanyahu's reelection may actually wind up being the best thing that could have ever happened to the peace process in decades. Allow me to explain why.
The Birther Hypocrisy The Right Desperately Wants You to IgnorejaredsxtnMar 23, 2015321168
Do you hear that noise? It's the sound of crickets from the birther community after Senator Ted Cruz announced his candidacy for President of the United States. Why, you may ask, should there be any noise from this community over Senator Cruz's eligibility to run for President in 2016? Well, that's because Senator Cruz, unlike President Obama, actually wasn't born in the United States.Ever since then Senator Obama announced his intention to run for President in 2007, Republicans questioned his eligibility to do so by insinuating he wasn't a United States citizen.
