Gun Fail LI

Welcome to Lowe's! How may I shoot you? (P.S. 23 kids accidentally shot last week) GunFAIL L  By David Waldman We have an extraordinarily long list this time around, and it took extra time to compile it and sort through it, which accounts for its late publication. New Year's Eve, like July 4th, is like Black Friday for GunFAIL. Brand-new guns are given as gifts for Christmas (at least one of which went off and shot the gift giver this week), a little extra drinking is going on, the kids are ... Full Story

Christie just doing New Jersey Stuff

Christie just doing New Jersey Stuff

  Hey, it's just New Jersey stuff!   By Eugene Elander As a one-time New Jersey resident, I can't say that I am surprised by the bizarre "punish Fort Lee by causing gridlock" tactic perpetrated knowingly by top staff of Governor Chris Christie, with the complicity of their friends at the Port Authority.  That's just a typical example of what I learned during my tenure in the Garden State; it's called New Jersey Stuff -- and if those outside of New Jersey have ...

Conservatives are Bible illiterates

  Right-Wing Is Filled with Biblical Illiterates: They'd Be Shocked by Jesus' Teachings if They Ever Picked Up a Bible   Jesus wouldn't have supported food stamps   December 23, 2013  | Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly defended the Republican Party’s spending cuts for SNAP by effectively declaring Jesus would not support food stamps for the poor because most them are drug addicts. If his insensitive remark is inconsistent with Scripture, which it is, then the ... Full Story

Obama, economic champion

Obama, economic champion

  Best president for economy? Obama By Froma Harrop: Lend me your ears. I have come to praise President Obama and bury the myth that Republican presidents are better for the economy than Democratic presidents. Not only do Democrats produce superior economic results, but they blow Republicans out of the water in the comparisons. Let’s turn the mic over to Bob Deitrick, a principal at Polaris Financial Partners in Westerville, Ohio. Deitrick crunched 80 years of numbers. ... Full Story

Drone pilot speaks out

I worked on the US drone program. The public should know what really goes on Few of the politicians who so brazenly proclaim the benefits of drones have a real clue how it actually works (and doesn't) By Heather Linebaugh Whenever I read comments by politicians defending the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Predator and Reaper program – aka drones – I wish I could ask them a few questions. I'd start with: "How many women and children have you seen incinerated by a Hellfire ... Full Story

According to Conservatives, Freedom Of Speech is Only for Bigotry

posted by Ryan Denson In the middle of all this Phil Robertson controversy, I just have one quick question: Where were all these freedom of speech-loving Republicans when Martin Bashir was forced to resign from MSNBC? They certainly have jumped on the Constitutional bandwagon when it suits their political purpose. So after Phil Robertson was suspended from the hit A&E show ‘Duck Dynasty’ after making obscene, offensive and tasteless comments about blacks and gays, ... Full Story

Republican agenda leads to death for the poor

Rick Scott Blasted For Deaths Of 40 Children South Florida Democrats fired a stinging rebuke at Gov. Rick Scott (R) Thursday, holding him responsible for the deaths of 40 children who were known to state child welfare workers when they died during the first half of 2013. "Clearly, your idealogical agenda of smaller government and less regulation doesn't always neatly fit with the priority of child protection, which has resulted in heartbreaking outcomes for too many Florida children," ...

ALEC Members won’t support democracy

ALEC Members Refuse to Sign a Pledge Supporting Democracy   It is fair to assume that America is host to an incredibly ignorant population who know very little about their government and how it affects their daily lives. That sad fact was exposed in a brilliant 2008 book revealing that only 20% of the population can name the three branches of government and 49% think a president has the authority to suspend the Constitution. However, the population’s ignorance of their government aside, ... Full Story
