Draft Ben Carson in 2016?



By Alberto Pupo

Gifted Hands, yet politically ignorant. In an effort to tout diversity (and insult every African American in the process). The Republican Party is desperately trying to paint it’s white shiny face black! Since 2008 and the election of the first  President with a background other Caucasian, the dying Republican elephant has been trying to showcase diversity.
Yet this latest call to “draft Ben Carson” betrays a couple of things. Firstly that the Conservative Movement does not understanding a thing about embracing diversity . Secondly that the The Conservative Movement is  desperate.

 

The Conservative outreach movement started during the George W. Bush era, when in order to show some sort of diversity they placed African Americans like Condelezza Rice and Colin Powell. Through the inclusion of these individuals in high level positions within the Administration, Republicans felt that they should receive in return the African Continue reading

The New American Aristocracy?

 


By Alberto Pupo

The Koch Brothers, They are on a mission to own all of America. They want our land, resources,  blood, first born etc. How can one family wield so much power? How can a band of brothers  bring Democracy to its knees? Using the power invested in them by the Corporate Court of America the Koch Brothers have been on a rampage. They are trying 8_koch_brothers_elkto not only control industry but control life in general?  They want to become overlords of the United States. IN a Nation which always took pride in Meritocracy why have we accepted this strange notion of aristocracy which has become the trademark of modern day America. For a Nation which reveres “independence” we have become acceptance of dependence of royal families? We Continue reading

Oops They Did it Again!

 


By Alberto Pupo

BP strikes again. Three years after they demolished the Gulf of Mexico, the Corporate beast strikes back against the environment. This time while on a smaller scale still as devastating. BP has just spilled oil into Lake Michigan. Once again BP has been trying to25078945_SS downplay the significance of the oil spill but with every passing moment they seem to be admitting that the spill was “larger than they thought”.

 

What the Hell is wrong with BP? Is it simply a lack of infrastructure upgrades and employee ineptitude that is causing these failures? Are they spending too much money Continue reading

Tea Party Tsunami Part Deux?

By Alberto Pupo

Republicans to gain control of the Senate? The political pundits are on a frenzy predicting Conservative Tusnami part deux. Inexpilicably due to statistical analysis and Obamacare, the tide of the Nation will turn in one fell swoop (thank you Alex Sink). A moribund party will suddenly rise to the occasion and win. How does this happen? Why will it happen?voter-apathy

 

Mathematical predictions aside, the truth is that it boils down to apathy. The small minority of bitter white men still clinging to their guns and bibles will head to the ballot box, while the rest of America gnashes their teeth and goes on a bitter invective on Twitter (yes the 140 character kind).

People if we want to avoid a rerun of the Tsunami it boils down to getting up and moving down to the polls a good idea (if it is not suppressed,here’s looking at you Southern States!).

 

 

So let’s set the pessimistic apathy aside at least for this year. Then come 2015 in an off year America can resume with its wailing and loafing around and who knows what the Kardashians will be doing then?

Corporations Are Not People!

By Alberto Pupo

Corporations are not People!

Corporations do not starve, and Corporations do not bleed.Corporations were

created with one goal in mind and that is simply to deceive.Corporations control I_refuse_to_believe_corporations_are_people

the fabric of our lives they control our senses. To break the grip of the Corporate

world all we need is believe.. That humanity can overcome base emotions and social greed.

Greed is part of the problem in our society. The wealthy attain their wealth by hook or by crook and instead of allowing others to achieve what they have achieved they work their entire lives in making sure the Continue reading

Rubio the Policy Wonk?

By Alberto Pupo

Policy wonk! Apparently certain sources are claiming that Marco Rubio is embracing policy as a way to the presidency? This is new strategy is all happening because Sugar Daddy Jim Demint has grown weary of the “rising star”.73-2

 

 

The truth of the matter is Rubio is devoid of original ideas and is a lousy statement.

 

Rubio’s one moment to shine Continue reading

Healthcare for None?

By Alberto Pupo

Four years old and the war still continues. Obamacare, the root of all evil. Obamacare, that which leaves millions of Americans restless at night with promise of health insurance. The ever present mandate is coming for us all (not just yet for Big Business). Meanwhile House Republicans have attempted a whopping 50 times to Repeal the law! Now they no_healthcare_plan_buttons-r8902f2ae79174a12b10e3d212fc26e58_x7j18_8byvr_512have even put together a plan to try and replace the health care law with. What is it about this law that makes it so scary? Why is the Right so entrenched on making this an election year issue (every single time)? What is it that scares them? Is this a fear of a slippery slope towards a true Single Payer plan? Is it all the taxes on medical devices and tanning beds? Or is it the idea of change itself?

 

 

The Affordable Health Care Act has been law since 2010. In the Republican world view it Continue reading

Democrats to become the New Conservatives?

 

By Alberto Pupo

Conservatism in America is dying. With 2016 approaching the Republican Tea Party conglomerate better known as the WTF Party, are once again proving that they are out of touch with most of reality. CPAC, the annual gathering of Conservative ideal, values and hypocrisy, was further proof that this movement is going the way of the Whigs. With Sarah I am a Media Whore Palin giving a rousing Keynote speech it felt like a nail in the Paradigm-Shiftcoffin for Conservatism in America. What will happen in 2014 and 2016? Will we see one Party continually dominate the political landscape? Will the Modern Day Conservative Movement throw the White flag? Will Sarah Palin ever go away?

 

Republicans are wondering why they can’t win an election. Then CPAC just happened and all their questions have Continue reading

Oh no Dem Liberal Snobs!



By Alberto Pupo

Elitist snobs! how dare you try and get an education? Reading books is overrated, and anything that makes one think should not be attempted at home. There is this need within Conservatives to paint themselves as folksy, salt of the earth types. They love to preach the ostensible value of simplicity, and “down to earth”. This image and facade has been created to paint Liberals as essentially Yuppies. They want to create an image that all elitismProgressives are out of touch academics who dared to engage in reading. The real interesting thing is that this facade is being peddled by wealthy individuals having high end academic degrees! Only in America can the son of wealthy Connecticut based aristocracy spin himself as a Texan Cowboy who struggles through my Pet Goat. The reasoning behind this ploy is simple to confuse all the anti intellectuals in their base and try to relate to individuals that on Continue reading

Religious Freedom? or The Right to Hate?

 


By Alberto Pupo

Progress, this is what we hope society will eventually embrace. The last week or so has been anything but Progressive for the State of Arizona. In a strange turn Arizona lawmakers actually had the gall to pass a bill that would legalize discrimination by businesses against the LGBT community on the basis of wait for it… religious freedom! entering_arizona_on_i-10_westboundThis bill a modern day revival of the infamous Jim Crow laws was passed by state lawmakers in an attempt to stem the tide of Progress. The backlash was fast and furious and the result as of yesterday a positive one as Uber Conservative and Ayn Rand lookalike Jan Brewer did the improbable she vetoed it! As odd as it may be we must be thankful despite Continue reading
