Why We Go To WarSchmidtJul 21, 201522256
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, 201533454
"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, 201524350
"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, 201524902
“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, 201513493
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, 201512532
"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, 201514647
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, 2015231068
"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.
