Grover Norquist, the omni-present constituent of every member of Congress is pressing Republicans to hold the line on the tax increases for the rich. He asserted in an interview with the The Financial Times that “For 22 years we have not had a Republican vote for an income tax increase in Washington...."
Given the cost of living has gone up over the past 22 years, and the costs associated with government services and payrolls have increased, to hold the government's…Continue

Tell everyone you know to contact lawmakers so that our votes and voices count...Explain to the GOP: NO NEW DEALS on TAXES or we'll vote more differently in 2014-2016, and so on. No "pushing back" Social Security...because it doesn't add to debt!!
Entitlements are things ($$) people qualify for...what do you call $$ from war and bailouts? We see now that greedy/bad business has even taken our…Continue

According to the Constitution, the President appoints certain offices with "the advice and consent of the Senate." However, there is a silly letter originated by freshman congressman Jeff Duncan and signed by all the Tennessee Republican members of Congress. This letter strongly opposes the nomination of Ambassador Susan Rice for Secretary of State because they have trumped up charges to do what they do best--try to stop government, and embarrass the President.

"...The fatal meningitis epidemic sweeping the United States can now be traced to the failure of then-Gov. Mitt Romney..."
The trqde-off is very clear. Instead of business killing regulations, Mr. Romney would prefer killing people from a lack of regulations.

In the first debate with Elizabeth Warren for the Massachusetts Senate seat, Scott Brown immediately opened his attack on Ms. Warren with innuendo about her ethnicity. She has claimed (distant) Cherokee heritage, but does so on the basis of things passed down in the family. Mr. Brown makes his comments about how she doesn't appear to be Native American, and rhetorically seeks the audience's agreement with him. That is a pretty poor way to differentiate oneself as a candidate with all the…Continue

Even though most republicans and some democrats can't stand the fact there is an African American in the White House, most of them have that shred of common decency that prevents them from putting the 'n' word on the Obama signs in Tullahoma. Most, but not all. I don't know what course the democratic party will take, but I do know the republicans, like they did with Akin in Missouri will remain silent. Unless of course racism could be legislated like the G.I.'s fully funded jobs bill, in…Continue

Well, I am a write in candidate for the U S Senate of Tennessee. The reason I am running is because I am tired of people making decisions for Tennesseans, who have not lived in our neighborhoods or even felt our pain. I feel that in order to help the people you are elected to serve , you have to have at least, have walked in their shoes. Or traveled down their streets.
Tennesseans face many hardships daily, from loss of jobs, homelessness, wondering where the next meal is coming from…Continue

Today I was called stupid for having an Obama/Biden Bumper Sticker On my Car. At first, I was taken back by the insult. Stupid... How can I be stupid? I was laughed at because I told the gentleman of why I am Re-electing President Obama.
I am voting for him because he is for education, he is for creating Green technology, he is a feminist; he is fighting for Women's Rights. He is a fighter for Veterans. Now being the wife of a diabled veteran, I know better than him that we need…Continue
