But there have been times when GfinS was close to reality... From '88 until 2006, yeah, both parties were pretty much the same... That's why I worked for Nader but in the words of Jethro Tull...

I think there are a lot of folks out there who missed working for Nader and now want to relive that part of their life...

Like what???...This is not strictly a Republican or Democrat issue...and frankly, the PEOPLE, left alone, are the ones keeping the whole thing afloat. It's the cancer in the body politic that has burdened the people down....When the Republicans push that, take out 'PEOPLE' and insert mogul CORPORATE PEOPLE. When I say it, I mean the everyday citizen....so IF it sounds like I'm talkin' UP the Republicans, I'm not. Without any Republican talking point misinterpretation, I may say the 'same type' thing, but I'm talking about all those people, workin' everyday, regardless of party affiliation, who make the whole thing work.
Let me give you a simple example VERY overlooked by the partisan bickering....something that just 'slipped by'...and not addressed....
Remember the housing bubble that was fraudulently inflated, so the banksters would make a quick buck, with the phony ponzi scheme they used, to do the leveraging they did?....the flip side, and 'payoff' to the politicians, (Read: special interests), was that property taxes were all assessed at the leveraged up, at the inflated values!!!...making even more difficult for your average workin' guy...it was ALL bullshit...but the workin' guy still went to work, busted his/(her), ass off trying to keep what was his, while the two predatory, corrupt assholes, worked hand in hand together, to fleece the shit out of him(us, the workin' guy)....then the government has to raise other taxes...just to payoff the bankster/corporations in the form of a 'bailout'....WHAT????!!!..BULLSHIT!!!..........but the workin' guy, watching prices inflate(the oil conglomerates had to get in on the action, with their bogus price fixing, which inflates everything transported), barely having enough money to make ends meet, just keeps pluggin' away...being beaten to exhaustion, and death by the marriage of government and the bankster/corporations, and the corruption they wallow in, to accomplish their power greedy agendas!
The political parties, and their 'differences', is their whip!!!
They are BOTH doing it, and at the top of the 'food chain', the top fat cats, are as identical as twins!...matter of fact, even co-operate with each other, to keep us feeding their avarice. They have NO intent on representing us, and haven't in a long time. They even TELL us what to think about the TWO choices they give us....without a second thought about a THIRD choice, which would be of course, beneficial to the people...instead of them!!

So, if you are thinking that I left out the Republicans, in all that.....I didn't...BTW, don't leave out the Democrats......and when you play music...play with a vengeance!!!!!!!
They can only have, what the human spirit will surrender!!!!
....and musicians have the unique position of re-enforcing the human spirit!!

Regards To Ya'...You mixed up wonderful musician!

pdq: "I'll see your Hippocrates and raise you a Plato."

Hmmm..that would be quite an Odyssey.

Bobert: "What you and your Republican buddies are doing here is ...."

First off, I don't separate, or choose my 'buddies' according to their political bents....in fact, people who overly identify themselves as one party or another, are the ones who limit themselves, as to how much they can be anybody's 'buddy'.....remember, (as I've said before), 'I'm not with the party, I'm with the band!'

As to your examples, Beirut, 911, Iraq War, and oh yes, Iran/Contra, (especially), I've brought that up NUMEROUS times on here as to the hypocrisy and corruption in our government..BTW, you forgot the Vietnam war, which was fraudulently foisted onto use, (Gulf of Tonkin folly), by the wondrous LBJ, and prolonged by both LBJ and Nixon, for the sake of the drug trade in the Golden triangle, and for the sale of embezzled arms, to the Shaw of Iran.....Yes, Bobert, dear Bobert, it has been Both parties, masquerading as caring patriotic 'leaders', while as crooked as a coon's dick. (that's raccoon, BTW)....and ALL those issues were politicized by one party or the other...anything from, 'Oh look what the 'other' party is doing' to 'Rah Rah..it's for 'national security', and 'protecting our interests'!......and of course, the SANE ones know that it's all been a big pile of crap!...and Bobert, dear Bobert, (with all due respects of being a musician and good guy)..it has been BOTH parties!....and the corrupt elements, both fueling the 'divisions', and profiteering from EVERY fucking concocted crisis.....and if they don't have an on-going crisis, they'll make one up. When there is a REAL one, they'll cover it up.....oh, and by the way...in your list of crisis that the Democrats 'didn't' politicize, you left out Watergate. Gosh, how you let that one slip through, must have been nothing short of an 'accident'(?).
When I think about it, off the top of my head, the last REAL crisis, that was handled as a real crisis, just might have been the Cuban missile crisis...most of all the rest of them have been a series of assholes jostling for position, to position themselves to get away with more crooked shit..while keeping the public dazed and confused with political partisan street theater!
...and yes, Obama the O-Blabbo is just another one of them....and it is so blatantly obvious, and always has been...from his first campaign to be elected, the first time......it's just been that, underneath, we ALL knew we wanted 'Hope and Change'...but this cat wasn't bringing it......
.....so I took matters into my own hands....I bought a three dollar lottery ticket with a five dollar bill, and got my hope and change, too.....but that didn't pan out either.
Oh well, back to the studio.......

Regards Bobert,

GfS

What you and your Republican buddies are doing here is playing "Monday morning quarterback"... I mean, everyone has 20/20 hindsight...

"Man, that quarterback shouldn't have thrown that interception..."

Duhhhhh???

Let's get real here...

Take the Beirut bombing under Reagan... Where was all this righteous indignation after it???

Iran/Contra??? Same...

Even 9 fucking 11... You didn't see all this pure politicization of tragedy by the Dems in either of those cases...

The Iraq War???

Nice post in general, Wrongman...

Not sure how much more that Obama can do toward leveling the playing field between Wall Street and Main Street... The bankers have already figured how to defeat Dodd-Frank...

Income inequality in America is disgraceful... And what makes it even worse is that the stenking Republicans don't even believe it exists... When you bring it up they call you a socialist???

Huh???

Here in North Carolina, as in every state with a Republican governor and majority in the statehouse we are seeing the same cookie-cutter ALEC right wing tax proposals: Decrease income tax rates and make it up with even more regressive taxes on the people who are right at the breaking point now???

Again, this ain't on Obama... This is on a 3 decade long assault by Boss Hog on the working class... Obam can't change that... The only thing that can change that is for all of a sudden a lot of right wing power people suffer what we on the left suffered in the 60s... That will get them to know that there are consequences...

The social crisis in America

4 May 2013

US stock markets surged Friday to new record highs as Wall Street traders seized on a tepid jobs report to engage in a fresh orgy of speculation.

The official line promoted by the Obama administration is that the United States is in the midst of an accelerating economic recovery...........

For millions of older workers, the prospect of economic security and a decent retirement is growing ever more distant as the elderly are forced to dip into their savings and take on ever greater debt just to survive. The debt of Americans aged 65 to 74 is rising faster than that of any other age group, according to Federal Reserve figures. For a typical household led by someone 65 or older, household debt grew by more than 50 percent between 2000 and 2011.

The already insufficient benefits provided by Social Security and Medicare, the federal retirement and health care programs, are being scaled back. Fewer and fewer retirees have a guaranteed pension. Among those that do, many have resorted to borrowing against their pensions and paying usurious interest rates to unscrupulous lenders.

Last week, the New York Times reported that companies that offer pension advances often charge interest rates, after factoring in fees, of between 27 and 106 percent. Older households spent 7.1 percent of their incomes to pay off debt in 2010, up from 4.5 percent three years earlier, according to figures from the Employee Benefit Research Institute.

Earlier this month, Wells Fargo reported that the number of older workers borrowing from their 401(k) retirement accounts—and paying penalties to do so—surged 28 percent at the end of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011.

Conditions are no better at the other end of the age spectrum. Almost 16 million children in the US, or 22 percent, live in families whose income is below the federal poverty line, according to the National Center for Children in Poverty. Last month, the United Nation's Children's Fund released a report showing that, among developed countries, the United States ranks 26 out of 29, behind Greece and just above Lithuania, Latvia and Romania, in terms of the percentage of children living in poverty............

Nor is poverty confined to the unemployed. According to a report issued last month by the US Census Bureau, the percentage of the population who are "working poor" rose dramatically, from 5.1 percent in 2006 to 7 percent in 2011. One quarter all those in poverty—about 10.4 million people—are working.

The bulk of new jobs are in low-paid service industries, and even manufacturing workers increasingly make as little as $10 an hour—a poverty wage for a family of four.

The effects of poverty are myriad. According to one recent study, 80 million adults in the US, about 43 percent of the total population, did not get medical care sometime in 2012 because they could not afford it. This is up a shocking 17 million since 2003.

Growing poverty and social distress are treated essentially as non-issues by the mass media. According to a recent study by the Pew Research center, the US media focused just one fifth of one percent of its news coverage on the topic of poverty. "In no year did poverty coverage even come close to accounting for as little as one percent of the news hole," Mark Jurkowitz, the project's associate director, told Harvard's Nieman Foundation.

In an earlier period, such indices of social distress would have been treated as a national disgrace. Today, far from proposing any measures to address the social crisis, the Republicans and Democrats, with the Obama administration in the lead, vie with each other over how best to slash Social Security, Medicare and other vital social programs.

Obama Blames U.S. For Gun Violence In Mexico

"Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States," President Obama said during a speech at Mexico's Anthropology Museum. "I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will."

"But at the same time, as I've said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It's the right thing to do," Obama added.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2013/05/03/obama_blames_us_for_gun_violence_in_mexico_pushes_for_gun_control.html

Obama runs guns into Mexico and then behaves like this. He has absolutely no dignity, and probably no conscience.

President Barack Obama posed several questions Friday night in addressing the nation after the bombing suspect was captured: "Why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country resort to such violence? How did they plan and carry out these attacks? And did they receive help?"

http://www.courant.com/news/breaking/hc-boston-marathon-main-0421-20130421,0,7262921.story?track=rss&utm_source=feedburner&utm_m

Well, he was convicted by Obama. And he had his throat ripped out, so he can't say "patsy." Case closed. Or is it? Obama asked if they received help.

And then there's this:

The FBI was last night hunting a 12-strong terrorist "sleeper cell" linked to the Boston marathon bomb brothers.

Police believe Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were specially trained to carry out the devastating attack.

More than 1,000 FBI agents were last night working to track down the cell and arrested a man and two women 60 miles from Boston in the hours before Dzhokhar's dramatic capture after a bloody shootout on Friday.

A source close to the investigation said: "We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone. The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated and not the kind of thing people learn from Google.

"They were too advanced. Someone gave the brothers the skills and it is now our job to find out just who they were. Agents think the sleeper cell has up to a dozen members and has been waiting several years for their day to come."

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/boston-bombers-fbi-hunting-12-strong-1844844

A dozen terrorists waiting years to blow up a couple of pressure cooker bombs at a marathon? Yeah, that's believable. About as believable as this. I guess we'll now see the the dozen other terrorists hunted down in the sequel.

It's called the Shadow Government. It's our intelligence services. Their budgets are not reviewed by our congress. John F. Kennedy promised to disband the shadow government, but then he was killed. His promise died with him. That was in the 60's. Representative Leo Ryan of California introduced a bill to review the budgets, but then he was killed. His bill died with him. That was in the 70's.

Our shadow government does not receive enough tax money to finance itself, so it resorts to the drug trade, arms trading, and so on. The Iran-Contra scandal was an example of the shadow government dealing drugs and arms.

All the average citizen can do is admit the truth and speak out about it, but unfortunately not many Americans are willing to do that. The lie is more comfortable. Also, many adults behave like children, denying that a problem even exists. The people who run our country try to control us with fear, and they are good at it.

The world admires Iceland, by the way. You people forced your leaders to act responsibly, and now you are benefitting from that. Or I hope you are. May Iceland thrive.

Since its creation in the 1930s during the Great Depression, the federally owned and operated Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has been producing low-cost electricity and managing natural resources for a large portion of the Southeastern United States. TVA's power service territory includes most of Tennessee and parts of Alabama, Georgia, kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Virginia, covering 80,000 square miles and serving more than nine million people. TVA is a self-financing Government corporation, funding operations through electricity sales and bond financing. In order to meet its future capacity needs, fulfill its environmental responsibilities, and modernize its aging generation system, TVA's current capital investment plan includes more than $25 billion of expenditures over the next 10 years. However, TVA's anticipated capital needs are likely to quickly exceed the agency's $30 billion statutory cap on indebtedness. Reducing or eliminating the Federal Government's role in programs such as TVA, which have achieved their original objectives and no longer require Federal participation, can help put the Nation on a sustainable fiscal path. Given TVA's debt constraints and the impact to the Federal deficit of its increasing capital expenditures, the Administration intends to undertake a strategic review of options for addressing TVA's financial situation, including the possible divestiture of TVA, in part or as a whole."

So, Obama wants to privatize the TVA. And note how the TVA is not the only targeted program here. Obama says, "Reducing or eliminating the Federal Government's role in programs such as TVA, which have achieved their original objectives and no longer require Federal participation, can help put the Nation on a sustainable fiscal path."

This opens the door to privatize everything that was built with federal money. Stone cold fascism.

In an unprecedented big government plan his plan is to issue breast pumps, to all lactating women collect the milk in predetermined holding facilities then redistribute the natural bounty to any citizen who has an NRA sticker on their car.

"I'm gonna milk those mothers for what they got and give those crybabies what they deserve." He was quoted as saying.

This just in. GOP filibustering Lactation law. Jon Boner, Orange American said, we are OK with the idea in principle, we just want to milk it for some tax breaks for the appropriate industries such as Big Pharma, the medical device industry and the new up and comer, Big Breast.

Already the (AGWB) Associated Guys With Boobs has filed a discrimination lawsuit.

That's the plan, all right. Problem is that the House is dominated by crazies from the Tea Party and the GOP. The House will probably not pass it because the majority party is out to get Obama.

The biggest mistake is the cutting of Social Security and Welfare for political reasons.
This will follow Obama in his budget. The House majority will never accept tax hikes for the wealthiest of Americans. Obama has already compromised his budget to get the GOP to budge. Most Americans don't like this and consider Obama to have betrayed them.

I wonder why Americans vote representatives to create stalemates in governing bodies?

The President sends a budget PROPOSAL to the House. The House passes it and sends it to the Senate. The Senate passes it and sends it to the President for enactment.

If the Congress doesn't like the proposal or some part of it they can change it.

What's hard to understand about this?

Goofy, your opinion is as the empty wind blowing across the desert, carrying before it nothing but dust and sand, and the hollow sound of its own howling.

Whether the songs posted are the best work I can do is not at issue. The fact is, people paid to listen to me sing. In concerts, coffeehouses, and on television. Repeatedly. I made a good living that way for a substantial percentage of my life.

So I don't care what you think.

By the way, you have yet to "blow a hole" through any of my opinions.

Obama has made a serious error by putting FDR's Social Security and Johnson's Medicare "on the table". Of course the GOP has not done better by insisting on deeper cuts to public programs. The enactment of the NDAA is a serious breach of democracy.

The Second Amendment has lost it's historical meaning. No British soldiers quartered in America. A well-regulated militia doesn't call themselves the NRA.

The other big mistake will be to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline against the criticisms held by climate scientists over the world. There are a few nutty dissenters but they carry no weight and are mostly shills for corporations but that's another thread.

The Democratic and Republican Parties have both been corrupted by lobbying money and John Roberts (who should be impeached for claiming corporations are people in the Citizen's United ruling). That's also another thread.

The problem is that the system is broken. Money has corrupted it. Obama is not totally to blame here but it has to be shared by Congress, some members of the Senate, the Tea Party, The GOP and Dems.

There are no good actors in the halls of government these days which is controlled by corporate interests (a definition of fascism) and the dilution of the effectiveness of government agencies bought out by the revolving door.

We need a strong grass roots movement to push Obama into better decisions. That won't come by moaning and groaning, whining and pulling hair out over Obama. It's time to grow up and take action.

You're not happy with much of anything except your own opinions..then go into a 'tizzie-fit' when holes get blown open all through them.

Just a friendly observation.
