Jeffrey Sachs Nails It On The Last Word – The Koch’s Have Bought Up The Congress!

Must see video. Spread this around, this is important. I even agree with him that President Obama needs to do more to help stem the tide that is sweeping across the country. I have confidence that the president will respond more, he just doesn’t do the knee-jerk thing. Watch and share with your friends…

  1. To be fair Obama’s been busy tackling so many different crisis that are going throughout the middle east. Lets not forget just because he doesn’t respond publically doesn’t mean he isn’t doing something about this behind the scenes.

    • I feel the same way, unlike some of his critics on the left, I don’t expect a public statement about every issue that someone on the cable news shows thinks he should. They are a demanding bunch of folks, if he responded to all of them, that’s all he would be doing. But of course we both know that they criticize him about that stuff just to criticize, not because of anything tangible.

      • Look at DOMA as an example Obama came out and said that his administration will not be defending DOMA which is great for gays but for some they are still complaining. Doubtless because they are republicans! LOL

        Either way Obama has done more for gay rights and many other groups than a lot of other presidents especially more than Clinton who actually struck out against gays. Of course many are still feeling that their isn’t enough being done but than again when will their ever be enough?

  3. The Wisconsin RepubliScum went ahead and passed a Union busting bill in the House side of the legislature. Much of the Midwest is still union country, if not a Union member themselves, just about everyone I knew growing up in Indiana had Union members in their families, and/or among their friends. Gov. Walker didn’t get elected to BUST UNIONS, but only campaigned to bring private sector JOBS back to Wisconsin (but instead is attempting to take away UNION jobs!).

    Remember, quickly after taking power in 1933, Adolph Hitler first BANNED the free trade unions and formed a new REICH labor department organization that ALL Germans were compelled to join.

    Remember Pastor Martin Niemöller included…

    First they came for the communists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.

    Then they came for me
    and there was no one left to speak out for me.

    • The main thing about Hitler is that he didn’t just ban unions he put all their leaders in concentration camps.

      • I think some of the REICH here would not care one bit to see union members sent to the gas chambers!

        Long before he started sending Jews to camps in 1941, after first rounding up most into ghettos, Hitler was jailing and executing tens of thousands of Germans who did go along with the Reich including the trade unionists.

        Dachau, near Munich, was opened in 1933 to imprison liberals, socialists, communists, anyone who was considered a political threat to the Reich. There were gallows at Dachau and crematoria to dispose of the executed (and evidence?). The experiment in wholesale killing of tens of thousands was begun in 1939 in the T-4 Euthanasia Program to get rid of the mental and physically handicapped which were an economic drag on the Reich. This may have hardened the Nazis who began their extermination of Jews, Gypsies, gay, Poles, and dissidents in 1942 to 1945. The latter extermination camps were built far away in Poland.

  4. The Republicans, who often SCREAM for Democrats to be fully “transparent”, are the same ones who don’t want Americans to know that big corporations and fascists like the Kochs are buying our government.

    The 3 Democrats on the Federal Election Commission want FULL DISCLOSURE on WHO is paying for political ads, while the 3 Republicans members say NO. Last year, outside groups that were separate from candidates and political parties spent $294 million on campaign ads, four times more than in 2006.
