Letter to Stubenville: MHP

  My open letter to the Steubenville survivor           Melissa Harris-Perry     Today, I have a letter to a young woman whose name I do not want any of us to know, because we already know too much about her.

I do not want us to know her name because she deserves some modicum ... Full Story

Thousands of gun deaths since Newtown

His collection of stuffed animals, won from those arcade claw games, stared back at him from their perch on his top bunk.

Republicans are the Big Government Party

    Unemployment Rate Would be 7.1 Percent Without Government Cuts March 11th, 2013 By Jason Sattler One of the biggest Republican myths of the last four years is that the government has been exploding in size. The truth is that federal, state and local governments have cut more than 750,000 jobs since June of 2009. If those jobs hadn’t been lost, the unemployment rate would now be 7.1 percent, according to the Labor Department. The total number of people employed by the government ... Full Story

Renewable Energy – Why Fossil Fuel and Nuclear Interests Are Trashing It

          By Grant Smith   Courtesy of the American Forum   The makeup of the electric grid of the future is at stake as the fossil fuel industry continues to falsely lessen the impact of renewable energy.

‘Good Guys With Guns’ Will Not Stop Gun Massacres

  By Bob Cesca On HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher last Friday there was an extended and heated debate about gun control. The participants included Newark, NJ mayor Cory Booker and author Sam Harris, who, in case you don't recognize the name, happens to be an insufferable marketeer of the "both sides are awful" false equivalence. The debate mostly centered around Cory Booker arguing for a massive effort to seize illegally-obtained firearms, with Maher and Harris telling him he's crazy to ... Full Story
