Anatomy of a Bogus Scandal

GOP Knew of IRS Scrutiny But Stayed Quiet for a Year By: Rmuse:  May. 30th, 2013 There is little doubt Republicans do very little in an honest and forthright manner, and whether it is claiming tax cuts for their rich supporters create jobs and a vibrant middle class, or that denying women contraception coverage protects their constitutionally guaranteed religious freedom, there is always an ulterior motive unrelated to their stated agenda. There has always been something out of sorts with the ... Full Story

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

What do you mean “We Lost?”

What do you mean “We Lost?”

  Apoplectic: of a kind to cause or apparently cause stroke as in an apoplectic rage; also: greatly excited or angered as in she was apoplectic over the news. Hegemony: the social, cultural, ideological, or economic influence exerted by a dominant group. These are my new favorite words of the week.  They perfectly define the GOP and the right’s feelings, and the cause of those feelings, after last Tuesday’s re-election of President Obama. It has been quoted that the Romney camp was ... Full Story

Republicans: Party of Rape

Republicans: Party of Rape

  There has been a great deal of comment among Republicans on the subject of rape. See the accompanying articles. In all these comments, the onus seems to be put upon the woman. It is almost as if these Republican men blame the women for getting raped. Never have we heard them talk about the rapist. The obvious conclusion is that Republicans condon rape for the rapist (man) but not the victim (woman). On the other side of the Republican coin, is the attitude that sex is a sin and should ...

Will Republicans steal the election?

  There is genuine concern that the republicans will try to steal the coming election. There is plenty of evidence that they have the mindset to do so. In addition the wholesale lies by the Republicans and their SuperPacs, (go to Politifact.com to see) there are many avenues available that may be effective. Certainly the efforts at voter suppression in the guise of fighting a non-existent voter fraud is one example. However, it turns out that the Republican’s worry about election fraud ... Full Story
