Time to Act

August 4, 2013

TIME IS of the essence. Ormet Corp is on life support. The Hannibal-based aluminum producer finds itself in dire financial straits. Help is possible, but Gov....

Do NOT blame the governor or any State officials for this. EVERYONE knows WHY the power rates will nearly triple----the arch enemy of coal, Barack Obama and his poisonous job killing agenda. How many Ormet employees elected their own fate?

Kasich is terrible. There is a reason why Ohio's economy is growing at just 25% of the national average. When Republicans are in office, everyone suffers.

No one wants Ormet to close. Everyone wants the proposed sale to proceed. the real issue is the Obama Administration and it's arm, the EPA forcing many, many coal fired powers ants to be shut down. electric costs for all are and will continue to increase well above the level of inflation. On a side. One, all agree that Mayor Coleman of Detroit literally destroyed the city. There is no dispute. 40 years of Democrat rule. What a tragedy!!!!!!!!! Be careful to cast stones.

PS. Mr. Kasich will easily win reelection

Tell the right wing reactionaries to stop fighting the Civil War. They should convert the power plants to natural gas. It's not electricity that bothers them, it's a black man telling them what to do.

And one of them is racist. What was your prime reason for voting for him, hmmmm? Be honest. You are surely regretting that choice now, otherwise you would be positive and supportive of your elected candidate. Instead you are a typical thin-skinned liberal, belittling anyone with a differing opinion and holding yourself up as holier than thou. Wait, maybe you have a lot in common with Obama.

Where do you get your opinions on how I think? I voted for The President because he is better qualified than anything the republicans offered. I voted for George W. Bush TWICE. I vowed never to vote for a republican again.

I don't blame you for not voting for Gore or Kerry. That didn't take courage however. As for opinions, I’ve seen you label posters many times. Have I dared to offend thee by coming too close to the truth? You seem likely vote for the probable winner regardless of party affiliation. As for qualifications, I'll tell you how I think. Anyone who WANTS to be President is by definition unqualified. We are left to accept or reject those shortcomings or personal philosophies. As it happens, I personally prefer a President who inspires people and removes the obstacles to getting ahead, leaving those persons to chart their own course without fear of government overregulation and oversight. A President who claims to help one class of people by villianizing another class of people is just using both classes to enact his agenda. I can't believe people are so gullible to accept that, but playing on the lower class’s negative feelings toward another class is the oldest game in the book.

Chris Matthews just said that it is his opinion that the republican party will move even further to the right. He also predicted that Rand Paul will be the 2016 Republican Nominee. I predict that should just about finish off the republicans as a national party for many years to come.

Fox "News" is rich people paying rich people to tell middle class people to hate poor people.

Well turley since Matthews is paid $5 million a year by MSNBC to give his opinion, and you Sir are paid nothing. I'll go with the professional man.

Let us calm down here. first, Rand Paul will not be the candidate for the Republicans in 16. Guaranteed. Mr. Matthews is well paid, opinionated, and certainly can speak his piece. that does not make his comments fact but opinion which 375 M other Americans also have.

Each network has their agenda, favorites, and supports certain candidates so to be fair, it is not wrong for Fox to televise what they do any or than CSNBC, NBC, or NPR. Let 's be fair here regardless of our political beliefs.

While the word profession is defined as something persons are engaged in for financial return, a professional is characterized by or conforming to the technical or ethical standards of a profession. Journalism is a profession, that part is easy. We are hard pressed however to find any so-called journalist who fits the definition of professional.

Just a few months ago Rubio was the republican's salvation, now he's just their water boy. Jeb is like a homeless man in the ratings, Cruz is too "Wacko"--ain't much left for 2016.

One of the legacies of the Reagan-Thatcher era -- which is very much still with us -- was to denigrate the very idea of the "public good." Anything preceded by the adjective "public" -- public schools, public transportation, public parks, public libraries, public welfare -- was (and is) suspect. The private sector, it was assumed, could do it better; competition and the profit motive would generate savings and efficiencies; citizens would be better served if they were treated as "customers" and "clients." Well, we now have three decades to assess the results. What happened? "Privatization" has meant more profits for the private sector, better services for those wealthy enough to pay more for them, and poorer services and higher taxes for almost everyone else. (cont.)

(cont.) The rich have seceded into their own private schools, private jets, private health clubs, and privatized communities; most Americans must now pay individually for what previous generations paid for collectively, through their taxes. Certain public goods, like higher education, have morphed into private investments. But the biggest loss, I think, has been our sense of the common good itself: out understanding that we are all in it together, that we are bound together by an implicit social contract involving obligations to one another that define a decent society, and that much of what we have and enjoy in life depends on what we achieve in common with others.

Reich is deluded and so is BCF. Have ANY taxes EVER gone down? Have any taxes ever been eliminated? Have new taxes ever been added? C'mon, laying this at the feet of private corporations and individuals is ludicrous. Did the wealthy raise the taxes? Private corporations? What about public unions? ANY waste there? BCF and his/her mooning over everything on which Reich opines doesn't make it true. Free to believe what you want, but it's just the opinion of possibly the worst treasury secretary until the Geithner era.
