Elizabeth Warren was heckled by a Tea Party supporter, at VFW Hall in Brockton, Mass. When he was done, he tried to go out the side door that was locked.
BROCKTON, Mass. — Moments into a speech before volunteers here Wednesday evening, Elizabeth Warren was interrupted by a Tea Party supporter who hurled a gender-based epithet at the Senate candidate. The man, who said he’d been unemployed since February 2010, objected to Warren’s expressed affiliation with the frustrations of Occupy Wall Street, and argued that the Tea Party has been protesting Wall Street excess for longer than the nascent global movement.

Saxby Chambliss is getting a lot of grief from the right-wing fringe, for trying to work out a deal to lower the deficit ceiling. Chambliss should never been a senator in the first place, when he ran a disgraceful campaign against a war vet and an honorable man.
The fringe of the right wing has completely lost it.

The House Republicans are acting like spoiled school children, as they refuse to pass a resolution to honor the military, and the Navy Seals. They should get over it that Osama bin Laden was caught and killed under Obama’s watch, and not George Bush. I just have to wonder what the hell goes through their minds.
The ending of 2010 is finally coming to a close. It was a good year for some, especially the ones who have jobs that pay obscenely high bonuses, then there are the ones who somewhat good paying jobs, and then there are the unemployed, who have to survive on unemployment checks, food stamps, and worrying about how and if they can pay their rent and or mortgage. Plus health care premiums keep going up among other things.
On the political front, we have some real whack jobs going to Washington in the first week of January, in both the Senate and the House of Representatives, though when you think about it, some of these people that will be taking the oath of office(s), that they seem not to represent the people who voted them in, but for the their own self interests, especially the Republicans, which most of them only care for big business, big banks and the idle two percent richest people, and the hell with Joe 6-pack.
With that said, I would like to see the major t.v., radio, newspapers, and real journalists start calling out some, if not all of these right-wing jackasses, by trying start speaking the real truth, and solve the problems that this nation is going through, and people should wake up and stop watching Fox News with their lies upon lies, and twisting stories around to their liking. Its a damn shame the so-called newscasters on Fox, keep getting away with spewing the bullshit. There is no need for it.
Here’s hoping that 2011 will be a better year for us all, and that things do get better. That’s all I can ask for.
Happy New Year everyone.
