How can we get this so-called pastor to crawl back under a rock?

Anyone have an idea on how we can get this so-called pastor to crawl back under the rock from whence he came? Can’t decide if we’re better off ignoring him or taking time to condemn him. Guys like this seem thrive on attention…positive or negative.

About time the President turns the table on the Repubs

About time the President turns the table on the Repubs…And Boehner’s response is hilarious. He’s NOW interested in JOBS. You know you’ve got a Repub in a serious jam when he wants to change the subject — to JOBS.

In case you need a reason to be against Donald Trump…

In case you need a reason to be against Donald Trump – besides the fact that he is a flaming ass – he is also a flaming hypocrite. He is against all things China, except of course his own clothing line, which is made in China. Did he think no one would notice?

Watch me duel with Eric Bolling (who might replace Glenn Beck) about unions

Look who may take over for Glenn Beck…my old sparring partner, Eric Bolling. Man, did I get some email after this — and not all of it negative. I tell you my friends, we’ve got to spread the progressive word wherever and whenever we can!

It’s good to have a DEMOCRAT in the White House, eh?

The President’s speech sure did my heart some good. Now if we can just get him to attack the mortgage foreclosure crisis…

President Obama vigorously defended government’s responsibility for the nation’s most vulnerable citizens and castigated Republican plans to “end Medicare as we know it” as he moved to shape the burgeoning national debate over the federal deficit with his own mix of tax increases and spending cut

Watch me featured on Fox Business Follow the Money Segment

Proud to stand up for working people and America’s shrinking middle class every chance I get. With Beck gone, who knows, maybe I can fill in…. NAHHH, don’t think Rupert Murdoch would let that happen!

Very proud of my daughter, who is considering a run for the legislature

Very proud of both our daughters…Kelly, a recent U of M graduate, is considering a run for the legislature. Virginia, a CMU sophomore, was recently elected president of CMU Democrats. Especially pleased that they are engaged in progressive politics, committed to social justice.

You may again see the name Bernero on the election ballot, but it won’t be the mayor of Lansing. This time it will be 23-year-old Kelly Bernero, Virg Bernero’s daughter, who is contemplating a run for state representative.

Wall Street has put itself at the center of the economy – and look where it’s gotten us!

The title just about says it all… Wall Street has put itself at the center of the economy – and look where it’s gotten us! Great nations must PRODUCE greatly, not just consume. But will Wall Street help power our progress again any time soon? America can only come back when we tap into the power of Main Street.

We continue to let bankers off the hook by trimming the already inadequate budgets of the agencies that regulate them and shying away from restructuring the largest financial institutions in ways that would better protect consumers.
