“Nine out of the 10 poorest states are Red

“Nine out of the 10 poorest states are Red states

Pro-Democrat group says 9 of the 10 poorest states are Republican The partisan blogosphere is filled with arguments over whether liberal or conservative policies are better for states. No matter what is proposed -- cutting the sales tax, raising the minimum wage, etc. -- someone can always come up with a state to cite as an example of why it's a good (or bad) idea.

According to Conservatives, Freedom Of Speech is Only

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.
