Allen: We Need a Govt That Controls the Flow of Wealth

I believe the purpose of government is to improve the well-being of the people. Today the middle class is being squeezed by higher costs for housing, health care, fuel and education, among other things. Wealth and incomes are being concentrated at the top. We need a federal government that responds to the needs of working families.

I voted against the bankruptcy bill, because it unfairly increased the leverage of the credit card companies against their customers.

Allen: I want a voice in Judicial appointments

Much more influence over national policy. There are 50 Senators who have served in the House and no Members of the House who have served in the Senate. That says it all. If you want a more pragmatic, effective foreign policy, Senators (who confirm presidential nominations) have a larger voice. If you care about the future of our civil rights and the make-up of our courts, the Senate is the only place. So it is more than just math. And we have an opportunity in 2008 to build a working Senate majority to deal with the great challenges of the 21st century: global competition, health care reform, energy, climate change, the exploding national debt, Iraq and so on. I want to make a difference on those issues and I can do that in the Senate.

Allen: We Need a Govt That Controls the Flow of Wealth

These folks at this web site ([b]firedoglake[/b]) are control freaks suffering from self-important paranoia. Check out this comment from the moderator -

[quote]Some of you may have noticed a nasty little comment from “Larry” early on.... I e-mailed Rick to say I suspected a troll and sure enough there have been over 30 messages from Larry so far today– each of which has been caught by our great crew of site monitors. No doubt Lieberman, who has had some experience with [firedoglake], warned Collins about today’s visit and they dispatched a troll.[/quote]

Got that? Joe Lieberman tipped Susan Collins that Tom Allen would be blogging at [b]firedoglake[/b], so they sent a troll to disrupt the proceedings with "nasty" comments like this -

[quote]Larry says:

Tom you claim the reason you have not been able to pass any legislation for the last 10 years is because you have been in the Minority. But then how is it Tom that your fellow Maine Democratic Junior Congressman Mike Michaud has been able to pass over twenty pieces of legislation in only 4 years?[/quote]

That's supposed to be "nasty?" One wonders - what sort of infantile credulity would lead one to believe that a U. S. senator would hire a troll to lurk on his political blog?

Amazing, isn't it?

It's no coincidence at firedoglake that every question and comment for The World's Dumbest Rhodes Scholar is a model of adoring sycophancy.

Hardball questions - presumed to be the work of the opposition's trolls - are carefully screened out. Obviously, no disinterested person could possibly have negative thoughts in our happy little Potemkin village.

[color=blue][i]I think AMG is a fun place,
and most of my posts are an
attempt to inject humor into
the various discussion topics.[/i][/color]

Comparing Tom Terrific to [color=red]Castro,[/color]
[color=orange]Marx[/color] and[color=violet] Lenin [/color]is somewhat funny...
[b]but it [u]also[/u] [i][u]isn't[/u] [/i]one damn bit funny![/b]

That's because there are too many
liberal Democrats, like Allen, and
[b]Hillary [size=9][color=green][i]"I'll Take Exxon's Profits" [/size][/color][/i]Clinton[/b]
who think the US Constitution really
authorizes them to go beyond collecting
taxes for necessary govt tasks...

But to [i]redistribute[/i] earnings by taking
inordinate amounts from [u]productive[/u]
[u]citizens[/u] and giving those earnings to
[u]non-productive[/u] [u]citizens[/u]... and even
[color=red][u]non-productive[/u],[b] [i][u]illegal[/u], [/b][/i][u]non-citizens[/u]!!!. [/color]

[size=18][b]And [i]THAT[/i], my AMG friends,
is no laughing matter.[/b][/size]
