Wisconsin Senate Removes Citizen for SILENTLY Filming Meeting in Violation of 1st Amendment!

Anyone who’s been following the work I have been doing has seen the First Amendment of the US Constitution literally trampled on by the GOP in power here in Wisconsin. It started with them saying you cannot hold signs on any floor but the ground floor of the Capitol.

The GOP is threatening to wreck the economy for political gain. Obama must hold firm or we’ll never climb out the hole they dug for us.

Rupert Murdoch’s Fall From Grace Is Good For America And The World.

Rupert Murdoch and his band of misguided cohorts and minions have done irreparable damage to the institute of Journalism. These unforgivable people have systematically stripped the Journalistic process to the core, to its bare bones. I do think this scandal being broken is a good thing. News Corp has used it’s power and influence to strangle smaller news media and other enterprises around the world to the point of no return, causing dozens of them to close down or be gobbled up by the giant itself. The world has suffered mightily at the hands of News Corp.

Walker Recall, Fitzmandering (WI Gerrymandering), and Kathy Nickolaus… Again??

Republican Politicians Hate America

Republican Politicians Hate America

Given the enormity of Republican patriotism, it is interesting that they are so hell-bent on winning the 2012 election, they will do anything it takes to bring this country to its knees in the hope that Americans will be too stupid and/or too ignorant, to understand who drove the economy off a cliff in the first place, and who is currently standing at the top of the cliff making sure we stay down.

Excommunication By State

Excommunication By State

I am a proud Virginian and proud of the people who made the Commonwealth great. Because of Virginians, we have a Constitution (James Madison), a Declaration of Independence (Thomas Jefferson) and a Bill of Rights (George Mason). We can claim the first President and the first woman to be elected to the British Parliament. We might have been stupid enough to house the capital of the Confederacy, but in 1989, we elected the first African American governor to preside over that old capital, and that’s when Derval Patrick was still in short trousers.

Beware Of The Party Of Hardships

Beware Of The Party Of Hardships

The financial priorities of the Republicans are highly distressing and extremely alarming, to put it mildly. While they would abolish even the slight improvements Obama has managed to get passed re: health care if they could, they see nothing wrong with the high expenses the Afghanistan war has been causing.

A Day In The Life Of Fox Bloggers

A Day In The Life Of Fox Bloggers

I decided to randomly scan the comments section under a FoxNews.com article (on the debt ceiling crisis). Look at the names these people have chosen to post under, and even the graphics they use for their personal avatars. For those who’ve never actually read the posts of these folks, this might come as a bit of a shock for you, but you should know what they’re saying. In today’s climate, these people are now the GOP mainstream.

My Declaration Of Independence (From The Two Party System)

My Declaration Of Independence (From The Two Party System)

A long time ago, the British were imposing taxes on American colonists. The first step in this was Parliament taxing the colonies for their defenses. The colonists protested, not because of the amount that they were taxed, but by the fact that they had no representation in Parliament.
