ABOUT PROGRESSIVE OASIS
My name is Ken Riter, and I started this page to provide some information and my opinion on news and developments that affect progressive issues I feel are important. Progressive issues cover a broad range of things that are extremely important to local, state and national arenas, ranging from Queer Rights issues, Labor Rights, Job Creation, Maintaining National Infrastructure, Developing Alternate Fuels, and even protecting Medicare and Social Security. Being in Omaha, NE, I feel we are plagued by too much conservative ideals, and there isn’t enough discussion or confronting on issues that deeply effect all of us. I am, by no means an expert, but we all should be discussing things the “experts” are doing in their elected offices. Are they listening to real experts? To voters? Or are they building up their wallets and portfolio’s? Its up to us to call them out on it, if not us, then who? That answer could be a nightmare.
