The TRUTH Award goes to...

Congressman Alan Grayson

Please join me in making a donation to his campaign - we need more Democrats like Mr. Grayson who aren't afraid to speak the truth and go after the right wing.

An Open Letter to Republicans in Congress

Dear Republicans,

The majority of Americans elected President Obama this past November. We voted for CHANGE and we want CHANGE!

Currently our President is working with congress to reform health care. Stop and ask yourselves why? The answer is because the American health care system is broken. It is no longer working for the people of our great country. Our health care system is being ran by the greed that is so present on Wall Street. It is time to reform it so that it works for the people.

President Obama is calling for a "Public Option". The majority of Americans support this. Unfortunately, you (the Republicans in Congress) and some Democrats are opposing it. Why? Because of the health care lobbies. Because of the "money".


YOU get PUBLIC Health Insurance. The people of this great country pay for your insurance. It's time that we have the choice of having the same health care coverage as you do.

Is it not hypocritical on your part to be against the very thing you take advantage of yourself. That is what is wrong with the Republican Party today - your actions don't match your rhetoric.

YOU whine that a public option would hurt private insurance companies... you mean it will hurt their profit. Does that mean they wouldn't be able to donate large sums to your campaigns?


So we're at a cross roads and I have a challenge for you...
If, I mean IF - you are truly opposed to a public option - be TRUE TO YOUR WORDS - give up your PUBLIC health insurance plan - you know the one that the American people pay for!
Give it up and oppose the public option.

If you do not, you will prove that you are nothing less than a hypocrite. And you'll prove that you are more interested in protecting the insurance companies than you are the people who elected you.

Hero of the Week: Jon Stewart

The Truth & How It Works would like to introduce our inaugural "Hero of the Week"...

Jon Stewart of The Daily Show

I would like to thank Jon Stewart for what he did last night. He went from comedian to filling the shoes of a responsible journalist, more importantly he gave many of us a VOICE.

I don't know about you, but Jon said everything I wish I could say to those who were a part of causing our financial meltdown (those on Wall Street)or those that knew what was happening and quietly watched.

Full Episode

It is time for us to speak up to the media and to those that hold elected office.

Revelations of the Right

I watched D.L. Hughley's show on CNN last night. He had a segment about religion and politics - it was very interesting to hear from one of the originators of the religious right's movement.

Note to Rush: Open Mouth - Insert Foot

I wasn't going to get involved in the whole Rush Limbaugh controversy. I don't necessarily agree in this distraction, when there are far more important issues to worry about...

But then Rush Limbaugh had to open his mouth again and guess what "insert foot".

Here's the story:
Democratic official blasts Limbaugh for comment touching on Sen. Edward Kennedy's health

I'm beyond disgusted with Rush and his thoughtless right wing speak.

What Recovery Looks Like

Do you wonder what economic recovery looks like?

Well, the answer will be at RECOVERY.GOV

During the Presidential campaign President Obama promised to make government more transparent and accessible to all. With the signing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law today, President Obama started the transparency and accessibility with a new website "".

This is refreshing to see. Not only has President Obama asked us to be involved in government, he is now making government accountable to the people. We have the power to see what our government is doing with our money and we have the power to hold people accountable.

I doubt this is the begining and the end of the promised accessibility and transparancy from our President. Stay tuned!

'We have tortured people.'

So if you or I would commit a crime, wouldn't we be prosecuted? Why would it be any different for a President or a Vice President or anyone that serves below them who knowingly commit a crime - a war crime? It shouldn't.

"...the Republicans are once again embracing torture as a platform for their party — demanding that Holder promise not to investigate or prosecution war crimes committed by President Bush and his administration."

An investigation must happen. Justice must be carried out. Without doing so, we cannot move forward with a clear conscience and be in good moral standing with the world.
