Petition page

by plh225

I have a suggestion for the mucky mucks who run this joint. Can you make a centralized petition page that puts all the petitions you think we should sign (or sing if you like) in one place so that we can find all of them and sign them if we agree? Facebook simply does not load your petitions for me on any of my machines (due to my anti-tracking configuration I presume). And I am sure I miss some of them because I work and do other things and sometimes don't pat y attention despite the number of reminder emails you send me. I also think you shouldn't just link petitions to FB. YOu should have an option to sign on a DKOS page.
Thanks for listening.


Should DKOS make a petition page to create a centralized place for suggested political actions?

Reality Disconnect and Questions

by plh225

This election is, as far as I can tell, the weirdest since I started voting in 1980. You have the first black President running on a platform of (1) having saved the country from Bush the Junior's tax break apocalypse, (2) nursing the country into recovery from the financial apocalypse, (3) extricating us from two stupid wars and (4) the ACA. You have Romney running on nothing but lies.

Give the Man a Chance

by plh225

I have been reading some heavy criticism of our President-Elect's choices for economics, intelligence and defense posts primarily based on the fact that they are re-treads from the Clinton Administration or that he is keeping Bush-Hawks in their posts. I feel it is important to keep up the progressive pressure, but folks can we we give PRESIDENT-ELECT OBAMA a chance? As the Onion so aptly put it, he has just been given the worst job in America.

Nationalize the Oil Companies

by plh225

We have all been reading about how President Elect Obama is a socialist in disguise and will almost certainly ruin this great Country of ours when he takes office on January 20, 2009 (a date still way too far off for my comfort). Yet the ruin of this country has almost come to fruition after eight years of W and the socialization of this country began many weeks ago first with the acquisition of just under 80%  of AIG (under 80% you understand is a number that keeps AIG's toxic asset collection off the US Treasury' books - a neat accounting trick just like those used by real industries). It has continued with acquisitions of troubled banks which are "too big to fail." Now that the United States Government is an investor in private industry, I would like to suggest that, as long as tax dollars are being given away with wild abandon, some proportion of those tax dollars be put toward a profitable enterprise.

Doing Something

by plh225

A friend emailed me last week looking for volunteers to canvass for Senator Obama in Pennsylvania. I jumped onboard because I was feeling useless as I live in New York and Obama has a lock on our electoral votes (barring fraud of course). I have relatives in PA who may be  voting for the wrong ticket which is part of the reason I wanted to go there - offset the misguided votes of cousins to whom I can relate on personal terms but not politically. But the main reason is that I have never been so impressed by a political candidate that I thought it was worth spending my precious free time.

But this time it is not about whether the candidate is someone I support on  all or many levels. It is about doing something to stop the damage of the last thirty years of regressive policies. This country cannot afford four more years of upward wealth re-distribution, environmental neglect, financial havoc and outright governmental criminality.
