Don't Fucking Threaten Me Again!

Comment below was recently left on local blog SOG City Oracle......
"Ok. You do that. True Americans will mostly ignore you, arrange for your votes to be meaningless, and quietly laugh. If that doesn't work or if you get too obnoxious, we'll go ahead with the rifles and cannons. That's one of the many great parts about truly loving America; it gives
you those 2nd Amendment remedies to domestic enemies.".....Jonolan

Here is SOG on 2nd Amendment remedies.

Should The American Embargo Of Cuba Be Rescinded?

This is what Americans want.
Yes 67.73%
No 32.27%
Take The Poll

This is what Republicans do.
There is a move afoot to again tighten restrictions on travel to Cuba,

the tiny Communist nation 90 miles south of Florida.

"Considering the pervasiveness of ignorance and bad information on the topic of the Cuba embargo, it may be an exercise in futility to vote your opinion on this online survey, but what the heck.
It will not hurt to at a minimum let the ignorant and uninformed know that we know they are ignorant and uninformed."......Alberto de la Cruz At Babalu.

Help, end the war on the Cuban people, they are being held hostage by a small minority in South Florida.
Stop The MCM.

Evidence Suggests GOP Hacked, Stole 2004 Election

Three generations from now, when our great-grandchildren are sitting barefoot in their shanties and wondering how in the hell America turned from the high-point of civilization to a third-world banana republic, they will shake their fists and mutter one name: George Effin' Bush.

The People's Budget

Budget of the Congressional Progressive Caucus
The People's Budget would eliminate the deficit sooner than either the proposed Obama or Ryan Budgets and raise a $31 billion surplus in ten years. It would end the main budget deficit drivers - the Bush tax cuts and Middle East wars; restore progressive income and estate taxes; add negotiation of bulk drug rates to Medicare and preserve Medicare, Medicaid Social Security; eliminate tax subsidies for oil, gas and coal companies; close loopholes for multinational corporations; and tax speculative financial transactions. All are goals supported by the majority of people.

Investigate Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi

It's bad enough Gov. Rick Scott is hard at work dismantling key consumer protections, but now he has a partner: our own Attorney General Pam Bondi. She seems to think her first duty is to protect some of Gov. Scott’s biggest corporate pals – the banks – instead of hard working Floridians. Recently Bondi fired Florida’s two leading attorneys investigating the epidemic of foreclosure fraud ravaging our communities.

Sustainable Biodiesel Comes To Florida Keys

Jeff Lillie says it takes about 24 hours in about a 40-step process to turn used vegetable oil into eco-friendly biodiesel that can be used in boats and cars. At age 59, he says his motive is not to get rich but to do his part to help the environment, especially the ocean.

Feeding the Rich

A timely reminder, with numbers and visuals, that our current "debt crisis" in no way had to happen. If corporations and the rich simply paid taxes at the same rate as they did in 1961 - with Bush-era policies primarily to blame for their decline - the debt would vanish.
