It would appear that the Nation and it’s people are going to the HEALTHCARE.GOV site en masse, to such an extent that the site has temporarily crashed, can you imagine that? The “glorious” state of FLORIDA has not set up any way to get the healthcare because of the Republicans in Tallahassee, this bottle necking of the Government because of selfish interest of wealthy minorities shakes the very foundation of the democracy.

TERRORISM

In EOC EYEONCITRUS.COM, TERRORISM on kp53 at 301211

The Republicans have knowingly halted progress in this country in an attempt to make people angry at President Obama. They have put pressure on the American People to try and force us to vote their way so they can then do more damage once they are in power. Purposely hurting people in an effort to force them to do what you want is the DEFINITION OF TERRORISM. I REFUSE to give in to the Republican's TERROR.

The GOP has gotten away with terrorism in allowing and orchestrating the events of 911. With such success they have built upon that framework for terrorism so that any opposition or differing points of view are chastised and ridiculed. As each day that passes they become more embolden and suggest the most repugnant ideas that Americans have ever had to experience and ARE are now too timid and afraid to raise their voices of opposition against. The dismantling of our Constitution, via The Patriot Act, because of the excuse of 911 is just one of the many brazen steps that they have taken to gain complete control of our Republic. More and more know the truth, become one of them, by spreading the word with the numbers grow and with each new epiphany we will be that much closer to regaining our Nation, our Country.

NORAD  North American Aerospace Defense Command

An Op-Ed Contributor to the New York Times published yesterday, Sept 10, 2012, this article, The Deafness Before the Storm by Kurt Eichenwald. Mr. Eichenwald shows how the Bush administration ignored the warnings of an imminent al-Qaeda attack! The reason, the al-Qaeda attack was to be the perfect cover for their intention of bringing down the Twin Towers and building 7. Dick Cheney had been put in charge of Norad, the first time that position was ever held by a non-military individual. This is just the tip of the iceberg and I am not going to outline all the volumes of evidence here, but I will ask just a couple of common sense questions. The REAL al-Qaeda terrorists and the other terrorists with their different affiliations, we’ve seen how well they accomplish their goals, in fact, a real terrorist (they are all terrorists, domestic or foreign)  set off a bomb in one of the twin towers in 1993, the story is here, the explosives were made with chemical fertilizer, although there was about five floors damaged, the tower did not fall. Then you have the bumbling terrorists with the bombs in the underwear, shoes and the like. This is the type of expertise people from that part of the world possess. They live in caves, antiquated houses, electricity is a luxury, do you really think that these people are capable of orchestrating an elaborate attack such as occurred on the Twin Towers? The second questioned is, how many times can you clap your hands together in ten seconds? The approximate length of time it took the Towers to free fall to the ground. Unless you can clap them together 110 times in ten seconds you can’t prove anything else other than a controlled demolition brought down the towers. It’s the law of physics.

Our, wait, no it’s NOT our government, it’s their government, would have you believe the most preposterous of all claims.

God Bless all the innocents who have died and may the real culprits of this terrible deed, one day, be punished.

Republicans Acknowledge Responsibility for National Debt

In EOC EYEONCITRUS.COM, Republicans Acknowledge Responsibility for National Debt on kp22 at 311231

 

Republicans Acknowledge the National Debt

In an historic move, at their National Convention, the GOP acknowledges that is was and is the party that is responsible for the National Debt, referring to the years of the George Bush, Cheney Administration. Citing the fact  that Bush took office when there was no National Debt and there was a surplus of over 10 billion dollars in the government coffers. It took George Bush and Cheney under six years to turn that National Surplus into a multi-trillion dollar deficit!

Clint "make my day" Eastwood talking with the American Public

The GOP feels that just because it wants to restore the same policy of George Bush, the policy that set the wheels in motion, it is no reason not to vote for them. In fact, their guest speaker, “make my day”, Clint Eastwood, who candidly, expressed the American public view of the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, in a dialogue with an empty chair that represented President Obama and the American people. In that dialogue, when the President and the American people told Clint to tell the Republican candidate to “go frack himself”, Mr. Eastwood told the President and the American public, that that was a physical impossibility.

An Onioniated Presentation by EYEONCITRUS.COM

This is perhaps the biggest difference between Democrats and Republicans

In daily kos, EYEONCITRUS.COM, This is perhaps the biggest difference between Democrats and Republicans on kp33 at 311207

When Democrats took control of Congress after the 2006 elections, one of the first laws they passed was a three-step increase in the federal minimum wage from $5.15 an hour to $7.25 an hour. Before then, under Republican control of the House of Representatives, the minimum wage had been frozen for a decade.Last week, a group of more than 100 House Democrats introduced legislation that would once again increase the federal minimum wage in three steps from $7.25 to $9.80. Further, the Democratic bill ties the minimum wage to inflation, so low-income workers will no longer see their purchasing power decline every time Republicans have a majority in the House.This bill would improve the take home pay of 28 million low-income Americans, and help stimulate the economy for everyone else. There are few, if any, other laws that could so quickly make a positive difference in the lives of so many low-income Americans. However, it has no chance of passing into law as long as John Boehner and the tea party are in charge.

This is one of the clearest reasons why we need Democrats to control the House of Representatives, and for Nancy Pelosi to become Speaker Pelosi once more. To accomplish that goal, at Daily Kos, we are working to elect nine strong progressives who are running in districts Democrats must win in order to retake the majority.

Please, help increase wages for 28 million low-income Americans by chipping in $1 for each of the nine progressive Democrats listed on the Speaker Pelosi Project page on Act Blue.

Keep fighting,
Laura Clawson

Gas Prices and the Big GOP Lie

In EYEONCITRUS.COM, GAS PRICES GOP Lies, private industry rips off the public on kp19 at 311220

This is one of many examples where private industry rips off the public. Companies have always taken advantage of the government when they sell their products to the government, the hundred dollar hammer, the five hundred dollar toilet seat and that list goes on. The idea that privatization is the answer is ludicrous, your giving the keys to the hen house to the people who want to sell you the hundred dollar egg. Not only is big oil making record profits but they are subsidized by the government. They use our tax dollars for grabbing up the world reserves of oil through military adventurism; sacrificing our sons and daughters in the process, while Wall Street speculators get more of our money by betting how high the prices will go. The obvious solution is to Nationalize BIG OIL. Of course, the propaganda machine which has been spewing forth the demonizing mantra of such words for decades would have to be overcome, don’t forget who owns these news organizations, the big Corporate Monolith, which includes Big Oil and the other industries associated with them. It is to the vital interest of the American people and the Nation to Nationalize Big Oil Now. Dave

By BRYAN WALSH

To hear the Republican presidential candidates tell it, President Obama is doing all he can — shy of changing the price signs at your local Mobil station — to raise the cost of gasoline. Last week Mitt Romney told Fox News that Obama “has done everything in his power to make it harder for us to get oil and natural gas in this country, driving up the price of those commodities in the case of gasoline.” Rick Santorum last month warned that gas — now at $3.84 a gallon on average — would hit $5 a gallon under Obama, and that the President “has done everything possible to shut down energy production.” Newt Gingrich — he of the promised $2.50-a-gallon gas — has called on Obama to fire Energy Secretary Steven Chu over comments he made years ago about the need for American gas prices to be higher. “If he doesn’t,” Gingrich said, “then the American people will know the President is still committed to his radical ideology, which wants to artificially raise the cost of energy.”

I’m not positive, but I suspect that for Obama — like most Presidents — any ideology, radical or otherwise, takes a backseat come campaign season to the primary objective: getting re-elected. And no President who wants to remain President is going to be happy with gas prices that are scraping $4 a gallon, which is why over the past couple of weeks just about the only thing Obama seems to want to talk about is energy prices — and everything his government is doing to reduce them. Hence the unusual spectacle of seeing a Democratic President — and one who came into office on fire for clean energy — boasting that domestic oil production had risen for three straight years under his Administration. “When gas prices go up, it hurts everybody,” Obama said in a speech last month. “High gas prices are like a tax straight out of your paycheck.”

It’s that same de facto tax that explains why politicians rush to blame each other when gas starts getting expensive. But is Obama really “fully responsible for what the American public is paying for gasoline,” as the Republican Senator John Barrasso said last week?

The short answer is no — and pretty much so is the long answer. First things first: the price of gasoline is overwhelmingly dictated by the global price of crude oil. It’s true that local conditions in individual countries can make a difference. Some East Coast refineries have shut down operations, for example, because they are locked into long-term sales contracts with distributors, making it impossible for them to pass on the higher price they’re paying for oil, and thus cutting into their profit margins. This has further raised the price of gasoline, especially in big cities like Boston and Washington. (If you think you’ve got it bad, it costs $4.14 a gallon to fill up where I work in midtown Manhattan.) That’s a problem that comes from the oil industry and needs to be resolved by the oil industry, not the President, and it’s likely a temporary one anyway as refiners adjust to higher prices and reroute gasoline from the Gulf Coast.

No, gas is expensive because oil is expensive — and oil is expensive for reasons that the U.S. did not cause and can’t unilaterally fix. American oil consumption is actually down from its peak of 20.8 million barrels a day in 2005 to a little under 19 million barrels a day last year. A lot of that is the lingering economic malaise, which depresses business and consumption and therefore driving; unemployed people, in other words, don’t commute. Americans drove just under 8.1 billion miles in 2010, less than the 8.26 billion we drove in 2006.

Obama certainly doesn’t want to take responsibility for the recession, but he may well want to claim some credit for another factor behind declining oil demand: more efficient vehicles. Ten years ago, cars and trucks averaged 24.7 m.p.g. By 2011, that figure rose to 29.6 m.p.g. — and new deals brokered by the Obama Administration with the automakers to raise fuel-efficiency standards to as high as 55 m.p.g. by 2025 could take an even bigger bite out of demand while also giving American drivers more resilience against high gas prices. After all, doubling the fuel efficiency of your vehicle is equivalent to cutting the price of gas in half.

That would be smart to do because it’s quite possible that — barring another major global economic slowdown — oil will remain relatively expensive for the foreseeable future. Right now much of the recent price spike is due to tensions with Iran, a major oil producer. War with Iran is a real possibility, albeit an uncertain one, and if the missiles were to fly, we could easily see a price spike of $50 a barrel or more. So traders and major oil consumers are stockpiling crude now as a hedge against that very situation, which in turn drives the price up now by artificially inflating demand. I can’t see how that’s an incumbent President’s fault. What’s more, it’s the Republicans themselves who are leaning on Obama to take a harder line against Iran, a move that would likely only raise the possibility of war and the attendant crude catastrophe.

REVEALED: Fox & GOP Conspire to Kill Public Option

Fox News stand in Hennepin County, Minnesota

Image via Wikipedia

Dear Editor:

Today Media Matters for America released leaked internal Fox News emails detailing an in-house policy to regurgitate Republican talking points on the air to smear health care reform. Finally we have proof that during the health reform debate Fox News ordered its reporters to use only Republican poll-tested language, such as “government option,”1 instead of the more precise and widely accepted “public option” to make the case that the offering would be a government takeover of our health care system.

Now is the time to fight back against huge corporate interests like Fox and its parent company, News Corp. Click here and forward this email to your friends and family.

As the country focuses on the implementation of the historic health care law, it is essential that we expose politically motivated reporting poorly disguised as “fair and balanced.” America’s working families won’t be bullied by a propagandist cable network and the politicians it hires and endorses.

We reject Fox News and its attempts to continually attack the Affordable Care Act and the people who support it under the guise of legitimate “reporting.” The repeal-mongers have a cable news network, but we have the grassroots on our side. Get the word out about Fox and send this message to as many people as you can.

The line between news and politicking has been obliterated thanks to Fox News’s brazen partisanship. When you look at the way Fox News hires so many Republican presidential candidates as commentators and the way the network follows the party’s poll-tested talking points, it’s clear that Fox News is nothing more than a mouthpiece for the Republican agenda. The American people lose when a network’s news presentation is designed only to serve the political goals of billionaires and big corporations.

In Solidarity,

@StartLoving3 Well said, Start. And Just ’cause a right wing tilted supreme court says corporations are persons, doesn’t make it so. I don’t have the patience to engage these teabaggers. It’s pointless; they just parrot the bullshit they’re fed from Fox. They’re the first to suffer under right wing policies, yet they’re the only ones who seem not to understand the mechanics of their undoing.
