yes, an all out assault on our food supply is as bad as going after the public sector, which Obama hasn't done much to protect now, has he? Shit, the Dems extended tax cuts to the republicans' power base. Windfall to the insurance industry disguised as health care reform (where is the public option?).

My solution is that instead of keeping on voting for the lesser of two evils (which means you are voting for evil) vote third party.


Agreed on both points.

What do we trade with Bahrain and will that have more impact on their gov't or the people who want to demonstrate against it? or any impact at all? If they aren't all that dependent on us, not sure that sanctions would do anything but hurt us economically.

I'm sure we buy oil from them. Also can go to the UN and get an embargo put in place. UN hasn't taken up the matter, nor Syria, Yemen, etc.

Why did we act in Libya but not elsewhere?

It's really simple to me...Obama is trying to create a level playing field for the middle class.. he didn't want to extend that tax break and is now moving to put it back in place. Bush, like Reagan gave his rich buddies a ton of cash claiming trickle down is a solid strategy..it wasn't, twice...obviously.

The Repubs spend time trying to push moral agenda (abortion) and blatantly attack any outlet for opinions other than theirs. I see evil in that, the Dems are not playing that game.

You're playing into the hands of the true masters of war and greed, the billionaires who fund the Repubs if you continue to waste time attacking Obama..he's not the problem. It's exactly what the true enemy wants so keep it up but don't cry if a Repub wins the next election and you get to see true evil at work..They should write you a letter of thanks for this opinion.

Monsanto is a mistake, just like NAFTA was..it honestly sickens me as a professional organic gardener.. but to equate that with the current power grab and destruction of Planned Parenthood, NPR, etc. is verging on ridiculous..ok, it IS ridiculous, just doesn't match in any way.

Obama silent? Guess you missed it..

"lol kinda like the left does? "
how so? you think MSNBC is the same as Fox? One is news with occasional biased opinion pieces, the other is pure propanganda, all opinion, often shouted for effect. When have the Dems gone after traditional Repub strongholds using the economy as an excuse? When the Dems had the #s they didn't waste time trying to seize power and destroy opposition like a pack of rabid dogs. The left didn't get us into this mess, people forget that.
