Back on September 26, I posted this on my FB feed, but clearly I didn’t address the issue here because I’ve been looking for supporting material and can’t find it. So, now, we’re just shy of a month away from the actual election and it’s time to deal with the issue. Civil Liberties garyjohnson2012.com I Read More …

And another thing…

I’m going to riff off the post I made earlier on FB, because it summarizes the problem we’re facing today. If you already read my post, feel free to share it. I’m following on from my last post, Connecting the Dots, Part 4, where you’ll find the current stats for the 2016 Primaries and Caucuses. Read More …

The Big Social Security Lie…

Social Security isn’t entitlement and it isn’t an open gift to the government. It’s my money, taken by force out of my paycheck starting with my very first job in 1983. The government thugs who raided the fund in the first place should repay what they stole or go to jail, just like any other Read More …

Koch-backed political coalition, designed to shield donors, raised $400 million in 2012 “The political network spearheaded by conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch has expanded into a far-reaching operation of Read More …

Well now, this is something else…

You know, the more I think about this, the more I wonder. Is the President waiting for default to declare actual sedition against the members of the Tea Party and GOP who are pulling this stunt? They can try to impeach him if they want, but they don’t have the foolproof 2/3 majority they would Read More …
