"Obama gets props for foreign policy wins like killing bin Laden. But where is his attention

The Progressive Alternative?
  by Robert Reich


President’s answers don’t nearly match up to the magnitude of the crisis.
Without bold alternatives, Americans desperate for big solutions are attracted to bold crackpot ideas
like Herman Cain’s “9-9-9” proposal, which would raise taxes on the poor and cut them for the rich.
This is where the inchoate Occupy Wall Street movement could come in.
What’s needed isn’t just big ideas. It’s people fulminating for them – making enough of a ruckus
that the ideas can’t be ignored. They become part of the debate because the public demands it.
The biggest thing the President has proposed is a plan to create 2 million jobs.
But that’s not nearly big enough.

I'm no economist but it seems that Obama isn't one, either.
They say his first stimulus was much too small - so nothing happened but,
we need to remember things could've gotten a whole lot worse without it.

Some people think we should've let the banks fail - which is kinda crazy.
Once Bush crashed everything, Obama had no choice but to bail them out.

I also heard some talking heads saying Obama has no cred with the 99% because
he chose Geithner and Summers - the very embodiment of the one percenters,
when he could've picked people who were on the same side as the 99%.

Our president has made so many mistakes.
When is he going to start getting things right?

Subject: Go easy on Obama

Keep swinging dude. Just consider easing up on my President a bit.

He has to keep the dammed cursed dems in line and that is an impossible task.
Beats the alternative. I know, I know. But consider the alternatives.
They really suck. Build us back up.
  George L

George, I hear what you're saying - and I agree.

I would like to write, "Obama wins again," but he's winning very few fights
and he seems to be incapable of learning from his mistakes.

The good news?
He's likely to win another term because he's running against two-headed wild dogs.

Since donations have all but crashed, I should probably avoid all touchy subjects.
Having opinions on controversial issues can be very expensive.

Terror & the used car salesman
Iran picked a dupe - so they're harmless


Leave it to the US military-industrial complex to create sympathy for Iran.
The recent allegation that Iran is behind a plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador on US soil
has been met with considerable skepticism—even by the usually docile US corporate media.
Not only are folks skeptical, but they’re also feeling bad for Iran, given the real possibility that
Iran is the victim of character assassination.
Why? Because the alleged plot doesn’t make any sense. Because the US establishment has
high motivation to create reasons for attacking Iran. Because fabrications and false flag attack
scenarios have been proposed or tried before—again and again—often with great success.
First off, let it be said that the Iranian leadership is theoretically capable of anything, and that
many regimes are. There’s a remote chance that this whole thing is real, notwithstanding how
foolish a gambit it would be.
The greater likelihood, however, is that this is something else.
Some kind of deliberately conjured cassus belli.

Maybe this is no big deal - maybe we should just treat this like a joke until Iran gets
20-25 nukes
and then can take their shit the way we have to take shit from North Korea.

Why prevent a problem when we can just wait for the first 3-4 nukes to explode?

Subject: Our Injustice department

Eric Holder must have his head up his ass.
What he is doing is trying to make it look as though he is actually doing something.
Honestly, I would bet that there are some Republicans who see this for what it is, a pathetic attempt to make it look like he is relevant.

There are people in this country who should be legitimately prosecuted, but of course will never be held accountable for their actions.
Is anyone seriously surprised that the justice Department acts as though it were castrated and totally tone deaf.

How many votes will Obama get from this lame move?
By the way, by prosecuting marijuana distributors etc, they are not stepping on any corporate toes.
Always, always follow the money.

The Obama administration does not have the people's back.
Would Hillary waste the people's money on this incredibly idiotic move?

Doing this provides no jobs, lets no one renegotiate their mortgage, nor does it hold any Wall Street bankers
accountable for stealing our money, manipulating the market and ruining the economy.

Judy, if Obama and Holder can kill poker and legal pot shops
I believe they will consider their administration a great success.

Did FBI go Rogue on Iran?
  by Lawrence Davidson


The FBI’s approach to “terror prevention” relies on spinning crime scenarios so as to lure unsuspecting “terrorists” into a criminal trap.
The recently announced arrest of the American-Iranian used car salesman turned drug peddler (who has a cousin employed
by Iran’s Quds Force, the special operations unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards), falls neatly into this MO.
The Justice Departmen talleges that Arbabsiar planned to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador in Washington.

In this case, the confidential source was a Drug Enforcement Agency operative, who is himself a convicted felon.
According to Gareth Porter, the operative is heard on one of the FBI’s clandestine recording “inducing Arbabsiar
to agree to the assassination of the Saudi ambassador.” That is entrapment and it is illegal.

I fail to see why that matters.

If Iran sent the guy money to kill an ambassador on US soil,
why does it matter who thought of the murder plot?

The real problem here is Obama is seen as very, very weak.
He's not being taken seriously because he's lost so much power.

His fellow Democrats don't mind embarrassing him, either. 
Democrats are openly showing contempt for their president - why?
Because Obama gave them permission to revolt when he forgave Lieberman's backstabbing.

Sometimes Obama seems like a mistake machine, grinding out one after another.

We Have the Right to Protest
  ...so why are the police arresting them?


In cities and towns across the country, 1,500 American citizens have been put in cuffs in the
first month of the Occupy Wall Street movement. While a small handful of them have been
charged with various acts of mayhem, the vast majority were peacefully demonstrating.

They were arrested for not complying with orders to disperse, or for refusing to tear down
the encampments that have come to symbolize the movement. We have a right to peacefully
assemble and protest in this country, so what gives?
On its face, “occupying” public space should be guaranteed under the First Amendment.

Too bad there are no Democratic lawyers in America.
Too bad they can't go to a judge and get an order barring the cops from arresting peaceful people.

Remember the Bush bastards f-ing arrested people with anti-Bush t-shirts?

Why don't the Democrats fight back?
Why can't the Democrats think?

Subject: extra judicial

You can't put this under extra judicial.  As far as I know, it has always been legal in this country
to defend your life, the life of your family and even the lives of others.  As a result, there is nothing
extra judicial about that. 

Why is Harv trying to cloud the real issue here?  The real issue is can the US government go out
and kill someone who they think is a bad guy (whether he is in the US or anywhere else in the world)
without showing at least a modicum of proof to an independent body?

Personally, I was very upset knowing Dick Cheney sent out death squads to kill anyone
he pleased and am not too pleased that Obama is doing the same thing.
 Dave in Illinois

Dave, thanks for that.
I'm OK with Obama killing the top-ranking plane bomber on the planet.

I enjoy your website very much because your sense of humor brings so much
of the politics today into sharp focus. Perhaps the politics are all beyond our control,
but at least as live, aware minds we can have the dignity of knowing what’s really going on.
You dignify with concise, acerbic wit, my quiet desperation.

KF, that was nice - thanks.

A trillion dollars in student loans
How does anyone survive this mess?


Students are borrowing extraordinary amounts of money through federal loan programs,
putting a huge burden on the backs of young people looking for jobs and trying to start careers.
Student loans taken out last year crossed the $100 billion mark for the first time and total loans
will exceed $1 trillion for the first time this year. Americans now owe more on student loans
than on credit cards, reports the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

So what happens when you graduate with $200K in student loans
and you can't even get a job flipping burgers at McDonalds?

Do European countries charge their students to attend college?
I think a college education is free in Europe, but not in the good-old USA.

Is it unAmerican to say their system might be better? They say petrol in Europe
costs up to $8 a gallon, but they get free health care and they get free education.

We could have a system like that, but the GOP says "that's socialism."
And we'd all rather be broke, in debt or dead than commit "socialism."

Subject: Cain's 9-9-9 plan is really 9-9-9-0

Herman Cain has released a new tax plan that he calls the 9-9-9 plan.
9 percent federal income tax, 9 percent corporate tax, and a 9 percent national sales tax.
But his plan is really a 9-9-9-0 plan because under his plan the capital gains tax drops to 0.
Capital gains is how the top 1% - the super rich - make their money.

His plan is a huge tax cut for the rich and a huge tax increase for the rest of us.
The 9% sales tax is a tax increase over the current sales tax. So here in California the sales tax
would be 18%, not 9%. The 9% income tax is a flat tax with no deductions which is a huge
increase for the lower middle class. And corporations which now control government and the
super rich get a tax rate cut from 36% to 9%. And - the plan won't being in as much revenue
as the current tax system so the deficit will skyrocket. Cains 9-9-9 plan is just an election gimmick
to try to trick people into voting for a system that will only empower the rich to take more from the rest of us.
