San Diegans Helping Gulf Oil Cleanup Efforts

12 dollars an hour to help clean up the planet sounds awful good to me since I have been under-employed since March 09. To bad KPBS provides zero info on how to contact Mr. Hanson. Perhaps it is just a way for Mr. Hanson to hype himself and KPBS an oportunity to report some semi good news related to job growth. I'm sure next week we will hear KPBS credit Obama for creating oil clean up jobs for San Diegans.

Taxes And Tea Parties In S.D.

Before the discussion even began I guessed correctly the general opinion of Penner and the panel of editors regarding the legitmacy of the Tea Party and their motives. Penner's reporting always skims the surface of remaining netural especially related to topics or issues that broach the liberal format of educationally owned broadcasting stations. Her supposedly balenced look at issues with contributing editors is more like playing cards with a casino owner useing a stacked deck and a dealer in his employ.

Regardless of the Tea Party movements ability to transform into a legitimate third party the number of disenchanted people involved (18% of Ameicans) is enough to unsettel the current two party system. This in and of it's self is a victory. When has being wealthier and more well-educated than the general public ever been considered a weakness? This group of Americans actually has the means and fortitude to try and change the status quo. And yes, the status quo was alive and thriving with GW - having it continue however would be like the old saying "If it happens once shame on you, if it happens twice shame on me"

An exanimation of the current congress and senate should sound warning sirens regarding the out of touch nature with the American public and that is why polls taken in December 2009 by the Wall Street Journal found the Tea Party movement fared better than both the Republican and Democratic parties, with 41% of respondents saying they had a "favorable" or "somewhat favorable" view of it. Becoming complacent toward the establishment of new political groups representitive of core values such as Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets is indeed socialist. We live in the USA not France.
