Fat chance anyone is going to stand up to this corrupt administration. Even Congress is afraid of the thugs running the WH. Occupying the WH does not give a person unlimited powers, as is happening constantly, and the Republicans just cower in the corner and wring their hands.

They aren't cowering, they are keeping their powder dry. When you only control half of a third of the government, and when your opponent completely dominates the media, you have to choose your battles. So far, their strategy is kicking butt. Look at the polls.

Right, as in when they thought they won the debt ceiling debate by giving obama whatever he wanted. All they had to do was mention this, from obama in 2006: The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadershi

Here's the whole thing: The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

You can't solve the problem til you win the elections. Republicans suffered on the debt ceiling debate because of the media. They need to go along until they can take over. That's what they are trying to do.

Sheep and chickens.

That's what America's greatest corporations have become.

Whether it's in California or nationally, it's the same sad story.

America's best and biggest companies -- the banks, the energy corporations, the computer giants -- are refusing to stand up to the bully governments in Sacramento and D.C.

The men and women who run California's corporations know that high taxes, over-spending, excessive regulations and foolish energy policies have turned the state from one of the best states to do business in to one of the worst.
