Does the Christian Coalition Really Endorse Slavery?

American Way is moving their offices and are archiving all the random material they have collected over the years, one of the things they have found was a Christian Coalition leadership manual from 1990. This little gem either endorses slavery explicitly, or at least argues that work relationships should be modeled after those Bible verses that clearly endorse slavery.

Eric Cantor: Hurricane Relief Spending? Only If Cuts Are Made

Rep. Cantor is playing politics with people’s lives with no regard to the implementation of his words. The number one priority of a leader in this nation is to maintain the general welfare of the citizens they represent. This means at any cost.

Republican Representative Randy Hultgren Fails to Explain How Bush Tax Cuts Created Jobs During Town Hall Event

Republicans are always quick to say that the Bush tax cuts created jobs but, conveniently, they never have any evidence to prove it when people call them out for saying it. At a town hall event in Illinois last week, Representative Randy Hultgren pitifully tried to evade having to explain how the Bush tax cuts created jobs.

Flip-Flop: GOP FINALLY Gives Nod to Raising Taxes – But You’re Not Going to Like It

Republicans are so anti-tax increase that they would block medical treatment for 9/11 heroes to protect the wealth of the top 1% of Americans. That’s nothing new. What is news right now is who Republicans ARE looking to tax at a higher rate…

Republicans: The Most Outrageously Uncivilized Pack of Jackals

Okay, come on, guys (and yes, Republicans, that means you), let’s get real here. Rick Perry came out with some, really, very typical right-wing blather about Ben Bernanke being treasonous and talked about how Texans would treat Bernanke ‘pretty ugly’ down there (which, in Texas, probably means being on the receiving end of something that goes boom).

‘Pro-Life’ Republican Kansas Governor Guts Funding For Dying Infants

Another supposed ‘pro-life’ governor has decided that children outside the womb are less important than those inside the womb.

Republicans’ Opposition To Christianity

Religious Republicans take center stage for the Presidential Primary, despite their great divide over Christian beliefs. While American conservatives call for even more deregulation, Pope Benedict XVI is calling for a more equitable, fair, and regulated economy, saying ‘[T]he economy cannot be measured only by maximization of profit but rather according to the common good.’

Palin Agrees With Perry on ‘Treasonous’ Fed

Did Michele Bachmann Admit To Treason?

Previously on the campaign trail, Michele Bachmann explained that her work as an IRS agent was responsible for creating her anti-tax fervor. But yesterday in South Carolina, the Minnesota Congresswoman offered another, more sinister explanation for her work. She claimed that she was in fact a ‘mole’ in the US Government agency.

Rick Perry Thinks A Zero Percent Tax Rate On Corporations Will ‘Get This Economy Working Again’

Further proving that he cares more about corporations than people, and that he believes in the foolish theory of ‘trickle-down’ economics, Texas Governor Rick Perry went on record today saying that a 35% tax rate on corporations (which most of them don’t even pay) is too high, and that we should lower it to zero percent in order to get them to start creating jobs.

I don't have anything against black people, I just don't think I should have to eat with them in public places. Or use the same bathroom. Or the same water fountain. Or sit next to them on a bus.
