The Social Poets: Im Just Saying: How To Protect Your Vote: From Denny: Middle Class America watches the national political scene play out and we have all come to the same conclusion. Yes, both political parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, are so ridiculously compromised by corporate money they are morally rotten to the core.
Neither party listens to their base. Neither party seriously considers doing anything for their base to improve their lives for such obvious areas like the outrageous cost of health insurance or equal pay in the work place.
Don't believe the moral rot to be true? There was a time, like the 2008 election, when $100 million won the campaign. Consider this: President Obama bragged about how he and Team Obama were collecting $1 billion for his reelection campaign.
The Republicans' Bragging Rights? They are collecting their own $1 billion - via the Karl Rove machine - and adding to it as we speak. Over $300 million alone has been donated from The Koch Brothers in this election cycle, the ultra conservative billionaires that hate unions and the unemployed.

For decades, Mexican drug smugglers have been devising all kinds of effective methods to penetrate the American coastline. The news anchor seems to think the various government agencies have proven effective at containing the Mexican drug smugglers on land.
Lately - yes, this is a real news story - the smugglers have turned to retrofitting simple Mexican fishing boats with multiple engines to skim across the water so fast you might blink your eyes and miss them.
Apparently, the Coast Guard and other government agencies working in unison, are on watch every night, seeking out the more than several dozen runs by the smugglers all along the California coastline.
This news clip shows how the law enforcement agencies are successful, and arresting all kinds of smugglers, all lined up for The Perp Walk.
Yeah, Middle America is sitting on the couch taking it all in, fidgeting with the remote, when a stellar idea pops into their heads. All that arrest business sure is a lot of unnecessary work. We have a more effective solution of how to deal with these cheesy Mexican smugglers.
