Real News Network: "Sanctions Against Iranian Banks is Economic Warfare"



"Economic Warfare", perhaps but I would argue that its justifble, because you got a Authoritarian Theocratic Regime. That wants Nuclear Weapons and funds groups that are anti American and against our other allies and has the goal of destroying the Jewish State of Israel, Economic Sanctions slows. Down the Islamic Republic of Iran from obtaining the resources to build their Nuclear Weapons program and if this Theocratic Regime cared, about its people or at least cared more about their. People then obtaining Nuclear Weapons, they would do what they needed to do to end these Economic Sanctions, giving up all aspirations to obtain Nuclear Weapons. This is about keeping Nuclear Weapons out of the hands of people who aren't responsible enough to manage them. And its a much better policy then striking Iran from the air or invading this large country thats about the size. Of Mexico physically and has 75M people, the Islamic Republic knows how to end these sanctions and have decided not to.

TIME Explains: Obamacare's 'Health Panel'



You can see from watching this video why Right Wingers, however you would define their politics and Progressives. Don't like "Obamacare", otherwise known as the Affordable Care Act, from Right Wingers point of view, it regulates the Health Insurance Industry, with Patient Protections. From Progressives point of view, its not a Federal Government takeover of the Healthcare System, it empowers. Americans to make these choices for themselves, how they pay for their healthcare, as long as they pay for it and protections in it, so they aren't abused by Health Insurers.

AlterNet: Forget Red vs. Blue: "It's Slave States vs. Free States in 2012"

Forget Red vs. Blue -- It's Slave States vs. Free States in 2012 | Alternet

Apparently racial tolerance only applies to non majorities but putting aside how the AlterNet phrases this. The reasons why the South is so Republican and Right Wing today, have to do with the Civil Rights legislation. From the 1960s and the Southern Caucus going from solid Democrat to solid Republican, with some exceptions. That President Johnson predicted would happen in the 1960s and Richard Nixon's Southern Strategy of 1968, 70 and 72, not only getting elected in 1968 but Congressional Republicans picking. Up seats in the House and Senate, in 1966, 68, 70 and 72, making the Republican Party players in Congress again. As well as President Nixon's landslide reelection in 1972, not because Southerners went from Liberal or Progressive in the early and mid 1960s, to Right Wing and in some case Far Right by the late 60s. As well as the Religious Right emerging in American Politics in the 1970s.
