Congress outraged over Navy Yard shooting

Please post your prediction.




My prediction is that the House Republicans (and some "Democrats" will follow the script handed them by Charles and David.

"If we spend 57% on war and 6% on education ..."

"The good and just society is ..."

It's worse, a lot worse, than you thought

Here's a good idea. No, two good ideas.



Let's clean house next fall.

The Left Pushes Back

http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/18902-the-left-pushes-back

We're witnessing a 3-act play in America, and it's called "The Great Rejection of the Reagan Revolution." For more than 30 years, we've witnessed failed policy after failed policy, executed by both Democrats and Republicans, which have done nothing to help working class Americans, and everything to increase the power of corporate America and of the wealthy elite.

As result, Americans have figured out the truth behind the Reagan Revolution: Whether practiced by Republicans or Democrats, the Reagan Revolution is one giant scam. In Act One of "The Great Rejection of the Reagan Revolution," we've seen the rejection of Reagan-inspired Grenada-like Bush-era policies of pre-emptive strikes, and just about every aspect of the so-called "Bush doctrine."

...

In Act Two of "The Great Rejection of the Reagan Revolution," Americans have rejected the Reagan Revolution policy of "deregulating the gangsters" that have allowed Wall Street big banks to grow out of control, and that caused the financial collapse of 2008.

...

Because Reagan stopped enforcing the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, when Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act was passed, commercial banks were allowed to merge with investment banks to form the massive "too big to fail" banks that dominate Wall Street today and that have dealt near death-blows to our economy. To close out Act Two of this play, Americans rejected both of these Reaganomics mainstays, and also repudiated one of their principal cheerleaders, Larry Summers.



Time for Act III - rejection of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
