Default About damn time Obama takes action

It is being reported that one of President Obama’s surprises at the State Of The Union will be an announcement of an executive order that will take on the Koch Brothers and Citizens United.

Eleanor Clift of The Daily Beast reported:

Wednesday is the fifth anniversary of Citizens United, and reformers have been told that the president may announce executive action in his SOTU speech that would require businesses contracting with the government to disclose political contributions after contracts have been awarded. This would ensure that the contracting process is blind, but also give the public (and the media) the information needed to connect the dots to look for backroom deals or conflicts of interest.
Guess who happens to have multi-million dollar contracts with the Department of Defense? The federal government hating Koch Brothers have tens of millions of dollars in defense contracts with the federal government. Rush Limbaugh also has a federal government contract that allows his showto be broadcast on the American Forces Network.

Defense Department official Ryan G. Whitman wrote that "American Forces Network does not censor content, and we believe it is important that service members have access to a variety of viewpoints."

Whitman said that Limbaugh's program, like others AFN broadcasts, was simply chosen on the basis of its popularity at home. "AFN acquires top-rated radio programs, as measured by audience ratings in the United States, and delivers them via satellite to our soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen stationed worldwide in 177 countries," he wrote.

AFN does not advertise on, provide any funding for, offer products for sale, or sponsor any of the programs (including the Rush Limbaugh Show) it relays to its audiences.

The country is experiencing great prosperity. Unfortunately, all of that prosperity is being funneled into the pockets of one percent of the people.

Interesting thought. Last night I was watching one of those travel shows with that Traveldork, Rick Steves. He was in Portugal. He was showing all of these incredible monuments built by the Portugese when they opened the first sea routes to Asia (bypassing the longer land routes) and began to outpace Venice, Italy and everybody else in trade. That money came back to Portugal and they went on a giant building spree of cities and roads, bridges and ports, monuments, churches, libraries, museums and schools, many of which still stand today and are monuments to national pride.

Then I look at the massive wealth coming into America. Where does it go? Into the offshore bank vaults of greedy mother****ers.

Once again proving you're a member of a fringe minority.

Not something Republicans are going to want to see.




New Poll Brings More Bad News for the Republican Party

This is exactly what Republicans really didn't plan for as they celebrated their victories last November.
