Support the Troops Not the Wars

Support the Troops Not the Wars

It seems these days that if you are not in favor of a U.S. funded war, at least at its inception, you’re labeled as un-patriotic or even un-American. This does not just apply to today, but has been the strategy of the U.S. government for many decades.

Included in the extensive list are the Civil Rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Oddest Sarah Palin Story You Will Ever Read

The Oddest Sarah Palin Story You Will Ever Read

Apparently, Sarah Palin had an interracial one night stand with former NBA star Glen Rice back in 1987, a year before she married her husband, Todd. And before you write this off as just a rumor, you should know that Rice has confirmed this story to McGinness. The encounter occurred while Palin was a sports reporter fresh out of college. Rice was in Alaska for a college basketball tournament.

The Tea Party’s Dejection Philosophy

So I appeal to all the candidates who are aspiring to be the next President of our country; please stop the dejection philosophy but adopt a ‘can do’ attitude. Tell us that you want to improve, how you intend to better our education system, our health care system, our regulatory systems, instead of telling us you will simply ‘get rid of’ them.

Fox News Hits A New Low: Criticizing Obama Over His Use Of A Binder Clip

It’s so stupid that it can’t be true, right? Well, it is true. Fox News has hit a new low. In another desperate attempt to criticize anything the President does, the folks on Fox and Friends yesterday morning criticized President Obama for using a binder clip on his copy of the American Jobs Act plan he held in his hand during a speech outside the White House. Apparently, it wasn’t fancy enough for them.

Wisconsin Wire: State Troopers Arrest Protesters For Silently Filming, One Injured

Today was a very interesting day to say the least. The Senate saw two new Senators sworn in, Senator Schilling and Senator King. This was a joyous time, the people have spoken, and although we likely had two of the recall elections stolen (statistically argued by exit polls as being much more likely than not), it was great to see two more Senators sworn in that we can hold accountable.

Rand Paul Says The Poor Are Getting Richer Despite Record Number Of Americans Falling Into Poverty

Rand Paul has once again stuck his foot in his mouth. Despite the fact that Americans are falling into poverty in record numbers, Senator Paul, son of Ron Paul, says that the poor are getting rich. He also claimed that there is no correlation between poverty and death and that to claim that there was such a connection is nothing more than ‘socialism’ and ‘tyranny.’

Michele Bachmann: Pro-Choice?

The fact is, there is not much difference in these cases. Either way, government is forcing a certain group of people to do something that they may not want to do. This exchange between the candidates is a fantastic example of the hypocrisy of the right wing. You can’t complain about government taking away choice, and then turn around and advocate taking away someone’s choice. But that’s exactly what Republicans want to do.
