Michele Bachmann Called For Elimination Of Freddie Mac And Fannie Mae AFTER Getting $400,000 Government Mortgage

Michele Bachmann has been getting government money for just about everything these days. From government funds to care for foster children, $250,000 in farming subsidies, $100,000 to train employees, and a great deal of Medicare money goes into the pocket of her husband. But these funds are nothing compared to a $417,000 mortgage that Bachmann received in 2008 from government mortgage programs.

Now, in an eleventh hour panic, the House announces – nay, the House tells the President to invoke the ambiguous 14th Amendment option, something that has never been tried before and may be impeachable.

Republicans Continue Their War Against The People Of Wisconsin

As if the people of Wisconsin haven’t been punished enough by Governor Scott Walker and the Republican controlled legislature, the GOP has unveiled a plan to keep voters from acquiring the required voter identification cards and a plan that would confuse and deter voters from going to the polls.

GOP Brinkmanship On Debt Ceiling Will Cripple Economy And Job Growth

Less than one week until financial Armageddon! At least that is what both sides of the debate would have you believe. And to be honest, a failure to raise the debt ceiling would be tragic for the country and the world; not directly because of an inability to pay U.S. debts, but rather as a result of the economic instability and the corresponding job losses which will result from the illustration of the impotence of the modern American political system.

Santorum Mixes Rhetoric, Says Big Government Should Ban Same-Sex Marriage

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum – famous for his anti-gay stance that earned him an oddly unique ‘Google problem’ – obviously is willing to flip-flop on the universally-Right-wing stance on federal government intervention over state’s rights as well as private lives when it comes to fending off the infamous ‘gay agenda.’

Just Waiting for the Great White Hope

These people stopped listening to the President ages ago, and along with the likes of John Boehner, Eric Cantor and various members of the White House press corps, treat him with open disrespect – reckoning him naive, incapable, incompetent, spineless and shallow, when he affects calm in a stressful situation, and stoking that well-known fear of ‘the angry black man’ when he shows passion and frustration.

From Facebook to the Debt Ceiling to Norway – Ideologues Kill

From Facebook to the Debt Ceiling to Norway – Ideologues Kill

The story of the shootings in Norway have captivated America, I think in part because Anders Behring Breivik does look like the boy next door, but also because he is an ideologue, much like an increasing number of Americans. An ideologue is defined in Webster’s Dictionary as an ‘impractical idealist.’

Congressional & Senate Reform Act of 2011

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971…before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land…all because of public pressure.
I’m asking each addressee to forward this page to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn I ask each of those to do likewise.

O’Reilly, Crowley Blame Dems For Ethical Decline of America – Completely Ignore Reality

Protester Nearly Stabbed By DOA Employee in WI Capitol and Revenge of Balloons

After months of mostly peaceful protests this last month or so has seemed to escalate here in Wisconsin. It started with former Republican State Senator David Zien and his band of thugs coming to the Capitol and starting a fight in which the Tea Partiers draped flags over protesters faces and without being struck, put the Pizza Box Guy, Mike Dickman, in a neckhold and punching him several times in the face.

Yesterday morning on Glenn Beck’s radio show, the former Fox News oustee gave his brief yet pointless take on the Oslo terrror attacks that occurred over the weekend. According to the self-proclaimed prophet of American freedom, the ‘political camp’ that was targeted by alleged terrorist Anders Behring Breivik was kind of like a gathering of the ‘Hitler Youth…or whatever.’

Joan Walsh’s Dysfunctional View of History and Government

Last week, the President spoke to a coterie of politically involved college students, Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike. It really was a master class in what politics in the real world was all about. He channeled Lincoln and spoke of compromise being the essence of governing in a democracy.

Enemies Of The State: The Kochs

Never before in American history have we seen a pair of people more determined to take America backwards. Never before have we seen two people more determined to buy elections and seize control of government in an effort to control United States policy and turn the country into a corporate state. The Koch family has been trying to do this since the 1950′s and their secret plans are on the verge of being realized.
