Empathy-challenged (war criminal) Obama is pretending he cares about military suicides.
I waited a few days to write this to see if my intensely bitter reaction to Obama's last week’s press conference would subside. It has not. In fact reading about the pride some progressives feel about Obama’s shamelessly hypocritical grandstanding sickens me even further.
One of the reasons slot machines in Vegas have so much power to keep you engaged is that just when you’re ready to surrender to the reality of your no-win misery a few coins drop down the slot and you unwisely stay engaged rather than cut your losses and leave.

Axelrod Destroyed the Democratic Party in Order to Save It -- Destroyed Democracy for Ego and Gamesmanship
Boy, you just can’t make this stuff up.
Weiner exhibiting his “package” via email.
Thank you, Anthony. Exhibit A. That just about sums up what the ruling patriarchy is all about. Power and competition and the biggest “package” whether of a person, a party, a nation or nations. The killer drones, by the way, seem to slide very easily into the abundance of phallic imagery penetrating the public through the addicted-to-titillation, disinforming, amoral media these days.
The alleged molestation by DSK is another one of those awesome, you can’t make these perfect metaphors up, of the IMF’s will to rape Africa, Africa represented by a vulnerable and working class African woman.

Chris Hedges recently interviewed Cornel West in The Obama Deception: Why Cornel West Went Ballistic about his personal and political experiences with Obama. West is described by Hedges as “the Class of 1943 University Professor of African American Studies and Religion at Princeton University.”
Hedges launches his West-Obama narrative as follows: Read more about Obama’s Personal and Political Betrayal of ‘Brother’ Cornel West
Some politicians kiss babies to posture their likability and trustworthiness.
Other politicians, like NY’s new Governor Andrew Cuomo, will rob them, infant victims of medical malpractice, of necessary, minimal, long-term medical coverage.
Cuomo wants to put a $250,000 lifetime cap on medical compensation for brain injury to a child caused by medical malpractice. This may sound like a lot of money, but in the course of a lifetime, medical bills being what they are and what they will undoubtedly climb to, it is very likely far from adequate.

Green Party Calls for State Lawmakers to Reject Cuomo's Austerity Budget -- A Green New Deal would invest in jobs, education, fair taxes
Green Party of NY State leaders today called Gov. Andrew Cuomo's budget an attack on working and middle class New Yorkers that should be rejected by state lawmakers.
71-year old peace advocate Ray McGovern, wearing a Veterans for Peace T-shirt, stood in the audience with his back toward Hillary Clinton as she gave a speech at Washington University on February 15th. McGovern’s stance, what he calls “silent witness”, was a protest of Mrs. Clinton’s support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
It was not long before McGovern was assaulted and dragged out of the audience by two security men. “So this is America!” McGovern declared. “This is America!” Read more about Don’t Turn Your Back on Hillary Clinton or How Ray McGovern Evoked Hypocrisy in Real Time
In "All Together Now: There Is No Deficit/Debt Problem,” I warned against the message calling for deficit reduction that the President would probably deliver in his State of the Union Address. And in a series of later posts, I looked at 7 fairy tales I thought he would tell. Finally, in a summary post, I offered a table summarizing the fairy tales and corresponding truths. In this post, I'll do a post-mortem. How many of the 7 fairy tales did he tell us? Read more about Fairy Tales of the SOTU Related to Deficit Reduction
Why Don’t Keith, Chris, Larry, Rachel, et al. Care More Re Drones, Wiki Revelations, Exec Assass, Military Budget/Suicides,etc.?
“Game on!” according to Obama’s most insidious team of propagandists.
Most MSNBC political anchors are so very excited about Obama getting his mojo back. His poll numbers are climbing.
Russia nuclear negotiations sound good. Final end to DADT also is a splendid Obama-Dem talking point. On now to the Dream Act. Juicy progressive political capital can be made and so much is not just forgiven re Obama but incredibly FORGOTTEN.
Cherry-picked progressive issues are apparently enough to give the high profile team of MSNBC progressive -- supposedly -- media darlings serious momentum in doing battle with Republican sensibilities and talking points for the upcoming election cycle.

Even though I deny that there is a deficit/debt/debt-to-GDP ratio problem, I thought I'd get in on the fun everyone is having this month and offer my own deficit reduction plan. It prescribes 1) Keeping average interest rates at 0.0226; 2) finding a way to increase the growth in nominal GDP from an average annual change ratio of 1.044 (CBO’s assumption about growth) to a more historically (since 1940) typical average annual change ratio of 1.072.; and 3) putting a stop to increasing health care costs by passing Medicare for All immediately. The first two changes would result in deficit reductions in CBO-based projections of $8.3 Trillion from 2011 to 2020. The absolute value of the national debt increases from $9.2 Trillion in 2010 to $10.7 Trillion in 2020, and the debt-to-GDP ratio declines from 69% in 2010 to 37% in 2020.
