The Ungrand Rollback

The so-called Big Liberal, President Obama, has now proposed rolling back cost of living adjustments to Social Security [S.S.I.] recipients even though S.S.I. has nothing whatsoever to do with the "great deficit" dilemma other than that the Government can't stop stealing from it enough in order to keep up with financing the General Fund.  Now, that ought to strip a percentage point or two off of Mitt Romney's 47%.  So while the "Big Liberal" was getting millions of votes from people that desperately depend on S.S.I. -- they don't hire 62-year-old people, anymore, even though it is against the law -- he was deceptively planning on making a so-called "Grand Bargain" with his supposed irascible political opponents; a name for a plan that Obama never used in any of his campaign speeches, of course.  So much for protecting core principles of the base that gets you elected president twice.

The whole idea that the New Deal and Great Society programs have to be cut or eliminated, anyway, in order to stave off, as they would tell it, the end of civilization as we know it, is nothing but a hoax and a ploy in order to protect oligarch riches from the taxes that they should be paying (like F.I.C.A. taxes above the present income cap, for instance), not to mention all the corporate subsidies and tax breaks that should be stopped, but this is the Year of the Snake, after all.

If possible, please, consider contributing to the Party of Commons, which has scores of members, by sending a check or money order ($10 recommended) to Mark Greene's Party of Commons or $10 to the U.S. Representative Campaign that will be on the ballot in 2014 (to Mark Greene for Congress); for either address, write to P.O.

Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2013 and to call out names. Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" (WA 9th Congressional District U.S. Rep. primary) by contacting real journalists and asking them to look into it. Please, ask these journalists to use "Freedom of Information" requests to get to the bottom of this case. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
