We need a Fire IN Our BellyMary KirbyAug 9, 201561179
First and Foremost I am a Hillary Clinton supporter, long time Democrat and a female. I have campaigned walked precincts, ran Democratic organizations for many, many years and can not once remember a Candidate, with the experience, talent and knowledge that I knew would take us to the next level, promote and advance the programs of the last President and begin to right this Country.
The Donald Show Readies For Prime TimejaredsxtnAug 5, 201502686
The Republican clown car officially has its top ten candidates selected for the first Presidential debate of the 2016 election cycle and the nation will soon be given a glimpse of the comedy that will be the Republican primary. We don't know what softball questions Fox "News" will send each candidates way, but we do know the evening will be memorable simply because of the man who will be standing at center stage. The man, the myth, the living legend. Donald J Trump.
Why We Go To WarSchmidtJul 21, 201532382
We go to war because it’s so easy. It’s as simple as that. Having amassed the largest arsenal of sophisticated high tech weaponry known to mankind, a highly trained military force, military surveillance satellites, hundreds of bases around the world, and a military budget that exceeds those of the next seven countries combined, American presidents and an “out to lunch” Congress now too often choose the military option over diplomacy or “just saying no” to war. Diplomacy is more difficult than military intervention or war and can take a long time.
Love and Dignity Carries the Day at the Supreme CourtjaredsxtnJun 26, 201533578
"They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed." And just like that, marriage equality is the law of the land.Today is a day millions of our citizens--both gay and straight--will never forget. The Supreme Court, with Justice Kennedy writing for the majority, ruled that gay marriage is a fundamental human right in the United States and that all laws banning the practice were unconstitutional. Never again will a gay citizen be denied the right to marry the person they love.
Why the Rich Get Richer: 145 Million Non-VotersSchmidtMay 26, 201524492
"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, 2015241025
“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, 201513633
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, 201512666
"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.
