Lies about Socialism
10/21/16
The lies about socialism just don't stop. It goes on and on ... it's impossible to keep up. Here's one meme that's a prime example of the typical black propaganda. I actually love these memes, because they're so transparently false. And yet some people evidently believe and distribute them. This article describe why one particular meme is a pathetic distortion of reality.

Oppose 2C sales tax increase: Pay for Past Sins; Sin No More
10/26/15
The Initiative 2C sales tax increase should be opposed, not because we should avoid taxes, but because it doesn't tax at all the entities that should be taxed. Everyone must pay for the sins of the past, but going forward it's absolutely necessary for taxes/fees to also be levied on new growth.

This article is a "liberal perspective" on why to oppose 2C. It examines the structural problem driving infrastructure backlogs and how to correct their root cause. It illustrates that "liberal" is actually "responsible conservative", instead of the irresponsible, what's-referred-to-as "conservative".

Response to Gardner on BCRA: Liar, Pants on Fire
7/11/17
This is my letter to Cory Gardner that I carried to his Colorado Springs office on 7/11/17 in reply to the lies in his e-mail letter on 6/30/17, which responds to my previous letter of 6/27/17.

Scarborough Promotes Failed Right-Wing Policies
7/13/17
In this MSNBC segment on "Mika Brzezinski Responds To President Donald Trump's Tweets About Her", it's difficult to know whether Scarborough is monumentally uninformed, blinded by ideology, or blatantly lying.
Points:
1. The media, in particular MSNBC, is not "liberal"; it is, at a minimum, "corporate conservative."
2. Criticizing Trump for his lies does not make Joe Scarborough an "Independent." Scarborough can declare himself "Independent", but his failing positions are Republican to the core. He is certainly no "liberal"!

Cory Gardner's 'Better Care' Betrayal
6/27/17
The Senate so-called Better Care Reconciliation Act will leave 22 million more Americans be uninsured by 2026. The budget office projects that by 2026, 49 million people would be uninsured, compared with 28 million people if the current law remained in effect. It is a "tax cut" bill for the wealthy, paid for by stealing billions from working people & destroying health care for millions. That's even though Tax Breaks for the Top 1% are 1/6th of all Tax Expenditures and 2.7X SNAP (food stamp) benefits. Tax Expenditures going to the top 20% are greater than military spending, which is $599B and 54% of all Discretionary Spending!

Letter to Lying Lamborn on Trump/Comey, AHCA, Republican Budget
6/10/17
Delivered this letter to Mr Lamborn's office in Colorado Springs on 6/9/17 [pdf]. It reviews Lamborn's lies about the Comey testimony, the deaths Lamborn imposes on Americans, and lies about the deadly Republican budget that creates even more of a "culture of dependency" for the wealthy. The "tax cut" bill disguised as a "health care" bill, passed by the House will result in 220,000 American deaths over 10 years.

AHCA Letter to Cory Gardner
5/15/17
Here is the letter I delivered to Gardner's office in Colorado Springs on the murderous AHCA bill Republicans just passed in the House that gives enormous tax cuts to the wealthy by denying 24 million Americans health insurance to provide $765B in tax cuts: $490B (64%) goes to the top 20%; $306B (40%) to the top 1%.
It's not just those 17,000/yr to 29,000/yr who die that will be negatively affected. Note, that's an average of 23,000 persons/year who will die; over 10 years that's ~230,000 persons who will die.  Also affected will be family and friends of those who will die; if that's perhaps 10X as many, then 2.3M will be affected.
Republicans have complained about rising PPACA premiums, but you ain't seen nothing yet! "Perhaps the most widely shared detail in the report was an estimate that the average 64-year-old making $26,500 would pay an additional $12,900 in premiums every year to purchase insurance that would provide fewer benefits than under Obamacare."
Republicans Beware the Backlash!

'Conservative' Imposters: Gazette Hit Job on Gaebler
3/27/17
The "conservative" Colorado Springs Gazette editorial, "Jill Gaebler is conservative impostor", shows they don't know the meaning of the word, conservative. They are the impostors. That's clearly illustrated by their views on Global Warming and "impact fees" on developers. They are either ignorant on science and economics or they are lying. In any case, what they promote is theft from the public in service of corporate profits.
