Not Rich? You Don't Count

The government isn’t shutting down. Aren’t we all just thrilled? Deep down, I felt it wouldn’t shut down anyway, I mean, would Congress be so bold as to still accept checks for not working? Nah, many said they wouldn’t take pay. Since they are greedy by nature, of course they will “strike a deal”.

Also, how on earth did the democrats “compromise”? Like Bill Maher said, it’s kind of like your lawyer telling you “I think I can get your tailgating charge upgraded to manslaughter.” I understand we all have to give up things and we have to “tighten our belts” but WHY doesn’t that apply to fat cats and corporations? Seriously, if we would make the top 2%- heck even the top 1% pay more taxes- it would create more revenue and we could be a much better functioning country.

Why are we taking away a $6.7 million dollar fund that helps

SOW: LIVE Energy Town Hall - Watch It Tonight!

Watch The Town Hall right here at The Liberal Lunch Live Tonight at 8PM/7PM CT

As a follow up to my HuffPo entry yesterday, President Obama: Cheap Oil = Cheap Excuses, I ask you to join us tonight for a special Live streaming town hall panel at 8 PM ET / 7 PM CST on the topic of energy with Boone Pickens (Oil Tycoon & Founder, BP Capital Management), James Woolsey (Former CIA Director), Bob Deans (Associate Director of Communications – Natural Resources Defense Council) and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK). The dual crisis in Japan and the Mideast has made it clear to that Washington has failed for decades to set energy policy right and it is now up to us, the American People, to lead a discussion on the importance of energy independence in America.
I, for one, am deeply concerned about not only our future energy sources but also our current dependence on oil and nuclear energy, both of which have a proven record of climate destruction and little concern for human safety. I will be watching this town hall tonight, and I hope you will join.

Eric Cantor Dumber Than a Rock!

Today, Eric Cantor [R-Va.] (House Majority Leader) reveals he knows nothing about how a bill becomes a law. He said in a press statement (with Speaker Boehner standing beside him):

if the Senate fails to pass a measure before April 6, 2011 providing for the appropriations of the departments and agencies of the Government for the remainder of fiscal year 2011, H.R. 1 (as passed by the House on February 19, 2011) becomes law.

Maybe he is not dumber than a rock, and he is just confused or even forgot. Maybe he is demonstrating to us exactly why we should not cut education spending. Or then again, maybe he is just another Tea-Party idiot, who knows how to be a very good corporate "yes-man" and just do as he's told.
