Well, it looks as though Rupert Murdoch's assault on journalism is taking a big hit. One of his major periodicals is closing in Britain. Major advertisers are pulling their ads. In Britain, from top of the political-judicial scale to the bottom, the Murdoch "news" empire is finally getting what it deserves: justice. Thank goodness for The Guardian, and the way they went after Murdoch, and continued their pursuit while he was denying everything for years. Now let us hope we can drop-kick FOX News to oblivion in the U.S.
Recall elections upon us. For goodness sake, get rid of Alberta Darling, and vote for Sandy Pasch.
It would be nice if the Democrats regained 3 seats in the legislature.
Have you noticed how many big bucks are flowing into Wisconsin from conservative political powerhouses outside of the state. The Republicans had to bring in people from outside Wisconsin just to get people to sign the registration papers for GOP candidates. And the Republicans, sickeningly doing whatever it takes to bring down democracy, are running fake Democratic candidates. It is one big, fat LIE for a Republican to run as a Democrat just to circumvent the democratic process.
Notice to President Obama. Don't fall for the Republican proposition that lowering taxes on corporations and the wealthiest Americans will somehow create jobs and help the economy. In 1937 the Republicans convinced FDR to do that in the midst of the Great Depression. It was a disaster. Less than ten years ago the Republican President George W. Bush convinced Congress to lower taxes on the richest Americans and big corporations. That is what got us into this economic disaster in large measure. Lowering taxes on the rich and big corporations does NOT create jobs.
And no real economist believes that we can get out of this economic mess simply by lowering government spending. Increased taxes will need to be a part of it, whether they are called revenue enhancements or some other fancy phrase. Will our leaders in Congress finally step forward for the good of the nation, put their silly partisan political religion aside, grow up, learn responsibility, and raise the debt ceiling! The Democrats have already agreed to lower spending by trillions of dollars. Is there an adult among the Republicans? Step forward.
