Wise Warren and Crazy Cruz

When you are right, you are right.The big banks and Wall Street have bought and paid for way too many of our senators and representatives, from Harry Reid and John Boehner on down. I disagree with Elizabet Warren on most things but the financial reforms didn't go nearly far enough.. Glass Steagall, which separated investment and commercial banking. The McFadden Act and the Bank Holding Act of 1956 prohibited interstate banking. These restrictions limited the size of banks. "Reforms" - the 1999 Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLBA) and the Riegle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act of 1994 - removed these restrictions. The ultimate result was the 2007-2008 financial meltdown. The responsibility is bipartisan. Both parties were bought and paid for.
This is a joke column, right? A king of pork, Mitch McConnell, is now majority leader. John Boehner has shown in the last couple of days that it will be business as usual in the new Congress by pushing through full funding for the ACA in opposition to his caucus. As far as I'm concerned I'm really unhappy with the leadership and won't be voting for any of the momsers ever again, Republicrats or Democans.

Jonathan Gruber: Honest Liberal

Gruber was honest until he was placed under oath. Then he lied. Another thing Pat got wrong is his contention that electing a Republican Congress was the same as electing a conservative Congress. A lot of Republicans ae not conservatives, they just play one on TV. When push comes to shove, they sell out for goodies for the momsers who bribe - oops, those who donate to their campaigns.
John McCain was badly injured when shot down, his arm broken in 4 places. He was offered early release because his father was Commander-in-Chief, Cin/PAC. He turned it down because other people had been POW's longer. As for giving information, almost everybody breaks, if your interrogation lasts long enough. I don't like his politics, but he served America and suffered greatly for it.
So, it is treason to tell the world what the USA is doing? If it makes us look that bad, maybe we shouldn't have done it?
This war will never be over, unless every Islamist is killed or locked up. Seems unlikely to happen any time soon. It's too useful to those who want to enslave the American people. They use it to justify violations of the 1st, 2d, 4th, 5th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution, pesky things that they are.
Another chickenhawk heard from. I can't see where Mr Jacoby has spent a lot of time putting his dainty lawyer - journalist Guccis on the ground in war zones during his 55 years on this earth. And let me tell you, putting boots on the ground is hard on the people wearing them, especially if it happens repeatedly because the decision makers will not build up the troop strength to wartime levels. Occupation is dangerous duty and needs a lot of troops.
Don't worry. The "Big One" will happen, Coastal Californication will sleep with the fishes and the state will turn red overnight.

A Tough Night At MSNBC

If your aunt had balls she'd be your uncle. In politics, as in life, there are no do-overs. You may get a do-again-differently, but no do-overs. Barry Goldwater lost big in 1964, but his candidacy set in motion a sea change that saw the Democratic Party go from controlling every Senate seat and governorship in the Deep South, to losing every Senate seat in the Deep South, and most of the land mass of the country. Democrats own the cities and as far as I'm concerned, can keep them.
Emily Cain must be truly a piece of work, If Ms Pelosi wants her in the House so badly. I can't remember her working so hard to salvage the 20 year career of Gene Taylor of Mississippi, who lost in 2010.
