Big Oil attacking the Anti-Fracking movement

Big Oil attacking the Anti-Fracking movement

  By Gary Wamsley   I received a large green card in the mail yesterday. It proclaimed that “Local Control of Energy is Bad for Colorado.” The card was paid for by Energy Citizens. This card immediately raised several red flags for me. First, the large size of the card means that it costs considerably more to mail than a standard postcard. That means that whoever Energy Citizens is, it is well financed, unlike most actual citizen groups I have been associated ... Full Story

Good Guy with a gun: Dead

It's Really Hard to Be a Good Guy With a Gun     By Adam Weinstein      My wife and I got into an argument last night over a dead man. His name was Joseph Robert Wilcox.

Challenging the NRA

Challenging the NRA

Lt. Col. Robert Bateman challenges the NRA By Demi Moaned It's been some time now since I added Charles Pierce's 'The Politics Blog' over at Esquire to my daily blogroll. His righteous indignation coupled with his madcap prose stylings are sui generis and often hilarious.

Robert ... Full Story
