Wall Street Wants To “Fix” Social Security

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 5:34 am

Those wonderful people who brought you credit default swaps, Lehman Brothers, and Bernie Madoff want to get their hands on Social Security.  Why?  They claim it is contributing to the deficit.  Wrong.  SS will be solvent just as it is until the 2040′s.  And if it needs more money?  You know the $106,000 annual income cap on SS taxes?  Why not do away with that?    Let wealthier Americans pay the same SS tax rate on all their income as the majority of us.  No problem.

We’re Still Buying New Military Aircraft

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 9:45 am

This is one of many military aircraft graveyards in the United States.  We seem to have extra planes.  This in a country that spends as much or more on the military than all the other nations in the world put together!  Who will say “STOP” to this madness?  You could call your congressman and tell him you want military spending cut by 50%.  We would still be outspending China by about 3 to 1.  Call your congressman at 202-224-3121.

Amy Goodman Says “Jail!”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 6:03 am

The people in charge of the West Virginia coal mine and the BP drilling rig are as guilty of involuntary manslaughter as if they’d driven a car 95 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone.  We must demand jail time.

Riding The Glass Elevator To Profits

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 6:31 am

You’ve probably seen the TV commercial of the woman riding a glass elevator into and out of the depths of the earth telling us of the wonders of gas and oil there, just waiting for us to tap them.  Our friend Randy Shannon in this article talks about the greed and mendacity of the energy companies and their Wall Street investors who have now committed the environmental crime of the century.
