    Classic government situation:
    1. “Fix” a “problem” they think exists with a solution that is not well-thought out.
    2. Wait for all the unintended consequences to pile up and the “problem” to get worse.
    3. Lobby for more funding to do things right this time.
    4. Talk about how taxes need to be raised to pay for these critical programs.

    Carter is Obama’s biggest fan — because of Obama, he is no longer our worst president.

    Another d-bag who wants the freedom to do whatever he wants but takes no responsibility for his action when they get him in trouble.Where has personal accountability gone?

    Actually, I have asked this question about McConnell and Boehner. Numerous times. Never get the right answer.

    Maybe all three of them can ride off into the sunset together.

    Wonder if that hospital was in her insurance plan before O-care took over…

    Useful idiot …

    tc: Thanks for saving me the effort of keying in the exact same sentiments. Unfortunately the resources of government have been directed without accountability toward the “recipient class” of society. Unfortunately funding for taking care of the truly needy (as the perpetrator may be), has been allocated to other uses.

    On reading his comment “…one that sometimes causes people to be remembered as “feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic,” I thought he had offered a good self-description.

    Actually, this was a budgetary decision. They didn’t have enough money to cover the food costs at the Council’s meetings.

    And we should believe this rebuttal … why?

    I feel so much better now that McCain is on top of this.

    Just curious, how does one go about “vetting” someone in this context?

    As I think about this situation all I can conjure up is the opening part of the original Star Wars movie with the hologram imploring “Help me Obi Wan Kenobi you’re my only hope.”

    Who will be our Obi Wan Kenobi? Our current day Churchill? It sure isn’t Obama; and it sure doesn’t appear to be any of our allies who have leaned on US leadership for decades. Unfortunately, that leadership is long gone.

    Even if other countries wanted to plug in, I would understand their reticence in not joining an Obama-led coalition since he has not been trustworthy in his support and/or commitments to others in the past.

    In other words, I’m sorry that you misinterpreted how I really felt based on the fact I went golfing after my statement.

    Classic politician non-apology. I’m sorry you didn’t understand what I really meant to say…

    Message to all campaigns!!

    You need to point blank ask your opponent if they are elected will support any immigration reform “enacted” by virtue of Obama executive action. When they claim to not be interested in answering “hypotheticals” let them know it is not a hypothetical — that Obama has undertaken a brazen political dodge by threatening executive action but waiting until after November to minimize Dem losses and that they know he will be doing this once the last vote is cast in early November.

    Too bad the internet is forever; hope her future employers are doing internet background checks on their prospective employees.

    Bla bla bla.

    What’s next, a sternly worded letter to the head of ISIS?

    Part 3 of 3

    “These are uncertain times—at home and abroad. Right now, Randi is in Israel, where she’s on a study mission committed to seeking peace and security for this region of the world. On this Labor Day, let’s remember what this day is really about and recommit ourselves to the task before us—creating a more just world.

    And to achieve a more just world, we must stand together against injustice everywhere, starting in our workplaces, our neighborhoods and the communities we serve. Pledge to stand with us.

    In unity,
    Randi Weingarten
    Lorretta Johnson

    Mary Cathryn Ricker”

    (Thank god that Randi Weingarten is on the job trying to figure out peace in the middle east. What the hell does this have to do with representing the union members?)

    Part 2 of 3

    “The austerity hawks, the privatizers and the deprofessionalizers know that there’s a growing disconnect between what they are peddling and what the American people want. And the only way they can keep their power is by demonizing and marginalizing us.

    There’s no doubt they will outspend us—as they will in this coming election. But our strength and the strength of the labor movement has never been our dollar power—it’s been our people power.

    This is our fight. But fighting back only gets you so far; we must fight forward to move forward, and that means never being afraid to both engage in conflict and find common ground, particularly with our communities, those we serve and one another. Together, by being member-mobilized, community-engaged, solution-driven and, yes, a little bad ass, we can reclaim the promise of America. We can create a nation fueled by democracy, justice and opportunity for all, instead of for the very few.”

    (Love the comment about “a little bad ass”)

    Here’s the Labor Day letter from the American Federation of Teachers (multiple posts)

    Part 1 of 3

    “The very first Labor Day was created to acknowledge and honor working people who aspired to the American dream and fought for a better life for themselves and their families.

    Together, each and every day, we build on the work they began decades ago. As a union that is 1.6 million members strong, we are immensely proud of who we are, and we thank you for the work you do. Our union is at the intersection of two vital societal movements—creating educational opportunity through strong public schools, and advancing economic opportunity through the labor movement and sound economic policies. We not only teach our kids, heal our families, and keep our communities strong, we engage, mobilize and challenge ourselves and our communities to fight for a better nation.

    As a union, we are fighting back against the relentless attacks on our jobs, our families and our communities. We are fighting back—whether it’s against Campbell Brown’s efforts to strip teachers of their due process rights and pit teachers against parents; corporate hospital chains seeking to enrich themselves at the expense of patients and healthcare professionals; politicians like Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, who never met a public school, public service or public employee he didn’t want to eliminate; or those saddling students with debt, ripping them off and “Wal-Martizing” the higher education workforce.”

    They should change their team name to the “Bombing Radical Islamists”
