If government can and must play a major role in rebuilding areas ravaged by nature's fury why shouldn't the same government do more to help those American citizens ravaged by the scourge of unemployment?
As Chinese Communist Chairman Mao stated in 1957, "let a thousand flowers bloom." This statement was issued as an alleged initiative to deliberately ...
Ann Coulter helped in her own inimitable, thoughtless, empty, soulless way to help get Barack Obama elected. She created her own self-fulfilling prophecy. Poor Ann Coulter. She must be so pissed off. The heart bleeds.
It's time for a more coordinated message from Democratic Congressional Candidates, House and Senate alike, to link themselves to passage of President Obama's programs supporting the middle class.
Americans should be just as eager to see real Congressmen and women in Washington who want to serve the people, just as much as they're eager to see the real referees back on the field. Even anti-union Governor Scott Walker wanted the union refs back.
Is it any wonder that Republicans have become the Party of 'no'? If they had said yes, our unemployment might be in the range of 5.5 to 6.5 percent by now and the president would be kicking Mitt Romney's rear end even more thoroughly than he is already.

Ryan and Mitt Romney claim to be America's comeback team, but that claim is extremely specious if Ryan helped to orchestrate something which put America in a position to need a comeback in the first place.
Mitt Romney's October surprise has arrived early. It is the sad reality that his toughest decisions next year will be what color cravat to wear at his wife's next horse ballet competition and not the choices he'd hoped to make behind the Resolute desk in the Oval Office.
First they obstruct. Then they complain. ...
Day Two was the Day Of The Attack Dog. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
Why should we continue to pay them when they're such miserable failures? We should consider making serving in Congress a part-time, minimum-wage job with no benefits.
