The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

(Getting ahead of myself!)

I am disgusted with the fascist line of the Republican Party.  I am disgusted with the wimpish reaction of President Obama and the Democrats to the fascist line of the Republican Party.

We don’t need tax cuts for the wealthy and an austerity budget in America today.  This will only lead to disaster.  Use your heads, America.  It was the same type of Republican stonewalling that dug us deeper into the Great Depression.

Americans need a lesson in determining the difference between “a cup of vanilla ice cream and a cup of horse shit.”  (borrowed from Lee Iacocca’s 2007 book, Where Have All the Leaders Gone?)

We have a bunch of career politician / lawyers in Congress who “don’t know their asses from a hole in the ground” (borrowed from my outspoken, now deceased, Republican mother).  They live in a fantasy world of writing legislation.  George Bush was an expert about beer kegs.  It showed.  Our current president is an apparent expert on compromising, compromising, compromising – until the ultra-conservatives WIN!  It shows!  Sad what the Ivy League is teaching people (Georgie at Yale and Obama at Harvard) these days.

We don’t need tax cuts for the wealthy and an austerity budget.


Ronald Reagan said, “facts are stupid.”  Ronald Reagan was a stupid ass.


Facts:  Bill Clinton balanced the Federal budget with higher taxes on the wealthy and tax deductions for the Middle Class.  The Middle Class spent the money that the wealthy are NOT spending today.  The Middle Class invests in America, but the wealthy class invests in horse shit.  Thus, the Federal budget was balanced by the time George Bush (wrongfully) inherited it (the budget should have been Al Gore’s to manage, but thanks to unethical behavior by Scalia, we got Bush).


Facts:  there were 10 times more jobs created when Clinton was president than when George Bush was president.
