This is the one that started it all. No matter what your religious beliefs or non beliefs, the solstice is remarkable event and what makes this one even more remarkable is the lunar eclipse which the Earth’s shadow’s will cast an orange glow on the full moon.

Bloomberg Slams Both Sides On The Economy

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Bipartisan, Bloomberg, Democrats, Economy, Republicans, Video

Big time speech today from the guy who definitely has his eye on the White House. Here’s the video… I’ll offer the transcript below after my analysis. Personally, this feels disingenuous from a guy like Bloomberg who has repeatedly used the government to regulate New York City businesses and consumer behavior six ways to Sunday. […]

Gallup: 62% Of Conservative Republicans Against Extending Unemployment Benefits

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Economy, Money, unemployment

Take a look… I’m sorry, but I literally can not understand the thought process here. They talk about deficit spending until they’re blue in the face, but they favor massive, unpaid tax cuts for the super rich, while wanting to deny unemployment benefits for the people who need it most. Baffling. Tweet

Rest In Peace Elizabeth Edwards

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Democrats, Edwards, R.I.P.

We all (unfortunately) knew the hell she went through the past couple years while battling incurable cancer. The reason I don’t link to that nonsense is out of respect. I’m sure you can understand. Personally, I’m glad her suffering is over, even though I’m so sorry that her children have lost their mother. That’s certainly […]

Obama is baiting the trap and if the GOP candidate doesn’t take it in 2012, it could spell trouble for the Dems. Last night the President said this… I have no doubt that everyone will find something in this compromise that they don’t like. In fact, there are things in here that I don’t like […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Politics

If you haven’t heard yet, a new organization has popped up that promises to be a non-partisan/centrist/independent/moderate alternative for the rest of us. It’s called No Labels and it’s launching next Monday. Happy Birthday to me. Also, the symbol of the “party” is a buffalo. I was born in Buffalo, NY. Coincidence? Yes, completely. Tweet

Obama Compromises On Bush Tax Cut Extension & Unemployment Benefits, But…

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Economy, Obama, Republicans, Taxes, tea party

In order to get the votes he needs to make sure unemployed Americans get the relief they need (and deserve) and employed Americans continue to enjoy payroll tax cuts, Obama is cutting a deal with the Repubs on the extension of the Bush tax cuts. As I’ve pointed out previously, this goes against the anti-spending […]

CBS Poll Reaffirms Tax Cut For Upper Class Is Wildly Unpopular

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Democrats, Polls, Republicans, Taxes

Why are Republicans insisting that the tax cuts continue when the election appears to have been a referendum on spending? From CBS: The poll finds that 53 percent of Americans want the Bush-era tax cuts extended only for households earning less than $250,000 per year. That roughly matches the proposal put forth by the White […]
