Newt’s back in D.C. to corral the Tea Partiers in the House and train them up on how to shut down the U.S. Government. I think they were well on their way without him, but now it’s clear that unless Dems completely capitulate to their ridiculous demands, we are heading for at least a temporary shut down.

Let’s get mad and demand that Congress and the President address the needs of Main Street, not just Wall Street
Read it and weep — from a guy who KNOWS. Then let’s get mad and demand that Congress and the President address the needs of Main Street, not just Wall Street. The foreclosure crisis and decline in home values continue to drive down our local economy, while the banksters enjoy record profits thanks to their taxpayer-funded bailout.

I want to be fair and give the guy a chance, but I cannot ignore this mean-spirited and downright cruel decision by the Governor and the Republican majority to rob Michigan residents of much-needed unemployment benefits in this difficult economy.

Let’s take a moment with our daughters, nieces, goddaughters and other loved ones to talk about Geraldine Ferraro. As the father of two daughters, I am grateful for trailblazers like her who crashed through the glass ceiling, making way for future women leaders.
State legislators must get heads out of sand and get busy to do right by unemployed workers in Michigan. Please spread the word and talk to your representative and senator to ensure that this simple step is taken to assist thousands in Michigan.
Once again, I try to educate FOX anchor on the definition of “fair and balanced.” Where would we be now without the tremendous, progressive record of the labor movement? Can working people look to Wall Street for a fair shake? Ha!
As usual, it’s hard to argue with Paul Krugman. He says it better than most, and given his knowledge and expertise, with more authority. It’s becoming more and more obvious, the folks at the top have gotten enough already; we need a NEW DEAL. Working people – and those who wish to work – are being left behind.
Our thoughts and prayers must continue to be with our brothers and sisters in Japan, who have faced great turmoil with courage and grace. Kristof reminds us that we can learn much from other, caring cultures where the common good is still part of the equation.
