Arizona Mildman : IMF’s Managing Director Rips GOP Austerity Economics, Calls For Progressive Reforms. IMF’s Managing Director Rips GOP Austerity Economics, Calls For Progressive Reforms.Omar
In a powerful speech at the International Monetary Fund’s Bretton Woods Committee Annual Meeting, Managing Director Christine Lagarde gave a nod to the Arab Spring and “Occupy movement”, driving home the point that these movements are fueled by social unrest stemming from rising levels of global wealth inequality.
After lauding the IMF’s success in achieving their goal of “halving the proportion of the world population” living in extreme poverty by 2015 five years early, Lagarde told the IMF members, bankers, and regulators in attendance that the IMF cannot afford to pat themselves on the back just yet, stating, “There are still one 1.3 billion people living under $1.25 a day; and over $2 per day.”

Kyle A. Martin : It just hit me, at 2 AM, why the Tea Party and the GOP behave the way that they do. The generation that actually believes their stuff, in which approx. 50% do anyway, enough to win elections, is literally dying out. In my generation, the numbers on their side do not even add to a plurality. This is their one chance, before the elections in 2014, to seal the deal, even if it means sedition and the fiscal corruption of the democratic process short of out-and-out force. 8 minutes ago - View -
No-GOP-2014 : White House defends IRS handling, McConnell asserts 'culture of intimidation' BECAUSE IT'S BULLSHIT!!!!!
Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell said the IRS controversy amounted to evidence of a "culture of intimidation" by the administration. But he and Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., admitted they lacked evidence that the targeting of conservatives was ordered by the White House.
"We don't have anything to say that the president knew about this," said Camp, who chairs the House committee looking into the IRS controversy, on NBC's "Meet the Press."
McConnell also could not point to evidence of presidential involvement in the IRS's scrutinizing of conservatives, though the Kentucky senator argued that a need for more information justified emerging investigations into the controversy. 12 minutes ago - View -

No-GOP-2014 : AP president blasts "unconstitutional" phone records probe While this might seen a violation of the freedom of the press and 1st Amendment, doesn't the Patriot Act allow this?
"As part of its criminal investigation into who may have leaked information contained in a May 7, 2012, AP story about a foiled terror plot in Yemen, the department "issued a secret subpoena for the phone toll records for 21 AP phone lines and these were phones lines for reporters, direct lines, cell phones, home phones but also the office numbers," Pruitt explained. "So over 100, approximately a hundred journalists used these telephone lines as part of newsgathering and over the course of the two months of the records that they swept up, thousands upon thousands of newsgathering calls were made." 27 minutes ago - View -

The Knowledge Movement : Benghazi Backfires on Republicans as Democrats Eviscerate Issa and the GOP Gallup recently concluded that the number of Americans who are paying attention to the Benghazi and IRS stories is well below average. The Republican habit of looking for a scandal in everything President Obama does has resulted in most Americans tuning out their cries of wolf.
Instead of being the scandal that would bring down Obama, Benghazi is turning into another reason for many Americans to not trust, or vote Republican.

This mess arises because of ego and laziness. Farming out fundraising to some L.A. High-Roller was a lazy, expensive idea. Better to have organized a social-media driven 'people's campaign' where community organizing and resources that empower the people impacted. This would have yielded dividends and build local capacity to advocate!
