The United Corporations of America

The UCA is here, the Supreme Court has removed all limits on corporate spending in politics, with the exception of actually giving money directly to a candidate. But other than that, no restrictions, as many organizations and commercials that billions of dollars can buy. In small districts it would be possible for one corporation to buy up ALL available time and block all opposing views. Half our government is already bought by the big corporations, now it will become complete. Obama cab raise millions from individuals? Doesn't matter, his Republican opponent could muster up billions because we all know the Republicans only represent the corps' and not the people.

Keith Olbermann gives a pretty strong Special Comment about it. Keith is known for going over the top, but this time I think he is right on, even though it sounds like he's over the top.

Howard Fineman

This video is from the Rachel Maddow Show. It's notable because of the emotion from Fineman when discussing Obama. He clearly is angry and disappointed at Obama's shortcomings as a politician.

Obama Gets Tough

I have been a major critic of Obama from before he was even elected, he's far too conservative for me. This video shows him trying to get tough with the banks we have bailed out. It's relatively minor action but at least it's something and at least it something where Obama isn't in the back pocket of Big Money. Let's hope he does more.

Eugene Robinson

Is my favorite commentator who often appears on Countdown and Rachel Maddow and he says Jim DeMint, GOP senator from South Carolina, is 'Delusional, Crazy, Nuts, Insane' I couldn't agree more and thought so long before current events. Remember that it was DeMint who said if they can stop health care it will be Obama's Waterloo.
