Send the Colts to the Super Bowl

Patriots Logo 3The NFL has said that 11 of the 12 balls the New England Patriots used during their win over the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday were deflated by 2 psi. Deflating the footballs is against the NFL’s rules because it gives the quarterback and his receivers an unfair advantage.

This isn’t the first time the New England Patriots have been caught cheating. In 2007 there was a cheating scandal dubbed as “Spy-gate.” The New England Patriots were caught illegally taping sideline defensive signals from New York Jets coaches during the teams’ opening week game. This way, they knew what defense was being called. Belichick, (Patriots head coach), had been doing this 2000.

America’s economy is booming while the average American’s economy is declining

rich-poorListening to the news pundits and the economists, a person would have to assume that America’s economy is back and doing as well as it ever has. There are a few statements they make that, while being technically true, do not accurately reflect the average American’s economic experience. The reason is simple: The economy of the United States has been split in two so that only a few thousand Americans will benefit from any economic growth. America’s two-tiered economy This isn’t something that just happened. This economy is the result of a decades long fight by the Greedy Rich class, helped by the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party, to weaken financial laws and regulations so they can “have it all”.

After a failed 50-year+ embargo, it is time to try something different since the embargo isn’t working, at all. Time for the United States to change tactics, and President Obama could not have picked a better time to decide to normalize relations with Cuba.

Forget everything you think you know about America’s economy

Keynsian-Supply-side

A recent poll found that millions of Americans say that they believe that the Republicans are better at reducing America’s debt and deficit and the handling of the economy overall. I find it amazing and a bit disturbing that so many Americans “know” something that is demonstrably false.

U.S. Voters Give GOP Edge vs. Dems on Handling Top Issues

The facts are that conservative economic policies led to America’s two biggest economic catastrophes: First in 1929 and then again in 2008. America’s economy cannot survive when only a handful of greedy rich people control it. America’s economy cannot survive when the vast majority of the wealth and income in America is concentrated in the hands of a few greedy people. We only have to look to history to see this is true.

Why should we fight for you, when you won’t fight for us?

DinoThe Democratic Party is lamenting its losses from this past election. They are trying to figure out how to get the American people reengaged and to vote for the Democratic Party again.

The Republicans did not win this past election because of the people who voted for them; they won because of the people who didn’t vote. The Democratic Party needs to engage those people who didn’t show up last November if they want to attain electoral success in the future.

The Greedy Rich have won the class war

greedy rich1The Greedy Rich have succeeded in buying the Republican Party and have used the Republicans to write legislation that have then allowed the Greedy Rich class to steal most of America’s money. The Greedy Rich have also succeeded in tilting the economic playing field so that the transfer of money from the poor and middle class will continue ad infinitum; or until Americans say enough. Will Americans stand up for their rights? And when?

The Republican’s ridiculous immigration position

my dreams are not illegal

The Senate passed a bipartisan bill almost two years ago. Speaker Boehner has refused, so far, to bring it to the floor of the House. All that needs to happen is for Boehner to bring that bill to the floor for a vote. The entire problem they are having would be solved.

However, if Boehner did that, the Republican Party would not be able to portray President Obama as; “lawless”, an “emperor” and “destroying the Constitution,” which is what the Republicans really want.
