What is the "Wake-Up Wal-Mart" campaign all about?
Well, there are two visions for America: Wal-Mart's America, where profits come before people, and my vision, where people come first.

In Wal-Mart's America, workers are paid poverty level wages even when they work full-time.
In my America, workers are paid a living wage with proper health and retirement benefits.

In Wal-Mart's America, wealthy companies shift their health care costs onto taxpayers like you and your families.
In my America, corporations live up to their responsibility and provide their employees with adequate and affordable health care coverage.

In Wal-Mart's America, suppliers are forced to make their goods cheaper even if it means shipping U.S. jobs overseas.
In my America, we value U.S. jobs and companies that buy and sell "Made in America."

In Wal-Mart's America, women are paid less than men.
In my America, women and men are treated equally - fair pay for everyone.

OBAMA/BIDEN: Wrong on the bailout.
OBAMA/BIDEN: Wrong on FISA.
OBAMA/BIDEN: Wrong on the endless "War on Terror".
OBAMA/BIDEN: Wrong on the endless "War on Drugs".
OBAMA/BIDEN: Wrong on continuing the Bush tax cuts.
OBAMA/BIDEN: Wrong on impeachment.
OBAMA/BIDEN: Wrong to not prosecute the Bush torture team.
OBAMA/BIDEN: Wrong to appoint the criminals who caused the financial crisis to positions responsible for fixing it.

See what blind hope will get you? I voted for Cynthia McKinney.

I pledge allegiance to NO FLAG. Certainly not one that stands for corruption, injustice, murder, genocide, torture, invasion of privacy and unlawful search and seizure. With liberty and the free pursuit of happiness for corporations and the criminals who run them. Bankruptcy, hunger and homelessness for the rest.

America: land of the deceived, home of the afraid. Fear level: ORANGE

Brought to you by so-called "democracy" from what was once described as "the greatest country in the world". Today we are the greatest polluters of the world, proclaimed proudly by George W. Bush at the G8 Summit on 7/10/08. By my count, we lost the moral high-ground at least as early as 1962. In that year, the United States began pouring Monsanto products over the globe, killing crops and foliage, poisoning habitats, and causing pain, suffering and birth defects yet today. Since then, we have also insisted on using depleted uranium munitions which have created environmental disasters that we take no resposibility for cleaning up. Chemical and radiation poisoning: the coward's gifts of death. And ones that keep on giving for generations to come.

I wish not to live in a failed fascist empire that roams the world MURDERING and TORTURING for oil.

GOD DAMN the Terrorist States of America!

"To accept passively an unjust system is to cooperate with that system; thereby the oppressed become as evil as the oppressor." — Martin Luther King, Jr.


"Curtailment of free speech is rationalized on grounds that a more compelling American tradition forbids criticism of the government when the nation is at war...Nothing can be more destructive of our fundamental democratic traditions than the vicious effort to silence dissenters." — Martin Luther King, Jr.


"Everyone knows that this country is being run by a criminal syndicate that has rigged elections, hidden its knowledge of the 9-11 attacks, lied the country into war, plotted to out an important CIA undercover operative and then obstruct a criminal investigation into that treasonous act, subverted most of the articles of the Bill of Rights, emasculated the Congress and the Courts (which it has also shamelessly packed with shameless hacks), betrayed veterans, surrendered a major American metropolis to the devastation of a hurricane, plotted to enable the declaring of martial law, tortured kidnapped and killed people in violation of international law and obstructed efforts to deal with the unprecedented crisis of global warming for an unconscionable seven years." — Dave Lindorff, award-winning journalist, former New York Times contributor, graduate of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, two-time Journalism Fulbright Scholar, and co-author, with Barbara Olshansky, of the book The Case for Impeachment.

Tim Russert, RIP

I can't say anything about Russert from before the recent Presidential Debates. But his performances in them clearly cast him as a GE-NBC puppet. Thanks not at all, Tim, for all the nonsense race-gender-and-religion baiting questions during the so-called "debates" you "moderated". Here's a good one: "Senator Obama, what's your favorite Bible verse?" What drivel.

It's a good thing you helped to get Dennis Kucinich blocked out of the debates before he started asking embarrassing (and important) questions about, for instance, how much GE stands to profit from an endless war on terror, or how much GE stands to profit from increased investment in nuclear power -- just as long as we ignore the environmental impossibility of disposing of nuclear waste. Apparently you thought that in 8 years we'd gone from a country who merely wanted a President we'd like to have a beer with, to a country who merely wants a President we'd like to go to church with. And if that's true, we'll get 8 more years of exactly what we deserve, a hack psuedo-President, and we'll be left wondering how things could go so awfully, terribly wrong, again. Thanks not at all, Tim, for your help in further dumbing-down the political discourse in this country.

Given all the kudos here from people who knew you for much longer than I, I must conclude that your final performances must have been your most despicable. For $5 million a year, your inane questions delivered to the American people anecdotes where they deserved policy positions, and sound-bites where they deserved substantive answers. And you delivered such blather in spades, keeping the masses perfectly distracted, no doubt to the delight of your employers. That's what I call a sellout. Another Great American Hypocrite. RIP

Unfortunately for us, there are plenty of empty media-heads at the ready to pick up your torch. God help us.

You're an ass - I'll bet you don't like anyone. I'm leaving this anonymous and I don't really care if you post it.
 
Rebel without a cause, eh? You're a joke dude. You must have watched Conspiracy Theory too many times and now you're as big an idiot as Mel Gibson. It makes me happy to think that NO ONE will post fond memories of you on any website. They'll just say good riddance! You probably hoped to get a lot of hits and a lot of comments. Wow, you have two comments, and a lot of people thinking the same things that I just wrote.
 
As someone on the political left who shares many of your views about the war, let me say that you are truly an embarrassment to anyone on "our side" of the issues. If you can't see the hypocrisy of someone who stands for such virtues as "peace" and "love" choosing the day of someone's tragic death to take gratuitous cheap shots at them, then you're more of a fool than you appear to be today. And that's saying something, pal.
 
I agree, you're an ass.
 
thanks for the comment at the new blog. glad you liked a la gauche. i did too, which is why i think i deleted it. didn't want it to become a stagnant boring place. i hope you'll add an rss for this one as well.
 
Hi, well be sensible, well-all described
