Protecting our nation from climate change and putting Americans to work in the clean energy sector are not elite, partisan issues. They are the building blocks of the 21st century.
It should be demanding an immediate jobs bill. A bill to end corporate loopholes. A restructuring of the tax code. No repealing of Dodd-Frank. That is if it actually wants to have an impact on legislation instead of being just an emotional outcry.

Where will Obama stand in the emerging "Mob War" when the "Occupy" Family confronts the Goldman Sachs "Family"?

The political wizards around Obama do not understand how demoralizing the Obama presidency has been for his most enthusiastic supporters. Their candidate turned out to be a Chicago pol with a veneer of populism.

On September 11th, 2001, on what was a perfect morning-right up until the very moment a Boeing 767-223-ER slammed into the North Tower of the World Tr...
The speech should've been short and sweet. Fifteen minutes. And delivered from the Oval Office. Instead what we got was the standard pomp and circumstance show, complete with all the odd merriment that typically accompanies these bi-partisan charades.
