Kansas AG’s ‘No Bid’ Contracts Raise More Questions

Last week, after a number of news outlets reported that Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt had hired a high-priced, politically-connected law firm to represent the State of Kansas in upcoming litigation, the Kansas Democratic Party launched an investigation into the process used by the Attorney General’s Office to hire the firm in question. The KDP found a number of alarming facts surrounding the bidding process, and Jeff Chanay, the individual who AG Schmidt placed in charge of awarding state contracts.

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.

Herman Cain Thinks Muslims In Murfreesboro, TN Want To Impose Sharia Law On Their Community

During an interview with Chris Wallace this morning on Fox News Sunday, Herman Cain was asked why he objects to a mosque being built in Murfreesboro, TN. The reason he gave for opposing the mosque, is because he said that the Muslims in the community are trying to infuse Sharia Law into the community.

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.

‘Defense’ Spending?

The recent focus on the federal deficit has brought up the question of what programs we have to cut. Among these are social welfare, infrastructure, education, and law enforcement. However there is one that has yet to be touched. Defense.

Empty Theater At Premiere Shows A Lack Of Interest In Sarah Palin’s Documentary ‘The Undefeated’

A reporter for ‘The Atlantic’ went to see the premiere of the new documentary ‘The Undefeated’, chronicling Sarah Palin’s political accomplishments. While in the theater only 2 other people showed up and when they realized the movie that they had unwittingly bought tickets to was a Sarah Palin documentary, they left within 30 minutes.

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.

GOP Denies Jobs Creation Bills, Wastes Taxpayer Money, and An Open Letter To Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs!

In this meeting several issues were raised. The Democrats argued that if they can pass redistricting and several other bills in extraordinary session, they might as well pass some old bills that had bipartisan support and had the sole purpose of creating more jobs. Of course, the GOP said they did not want to work on the jobs creation bills they would rather work on quickly pushing through bills that hurt people rather than help.

Jeff Stone Admits to Disenfranchising Students and GAB Suspicion

So, I got out of the hospital earlier this week and back off to work. On one of my first days at the Capitol I got a rare interview with Assembly Representative Jeff Stone, who introduced AB7 or the Wisconsin Voter Disenfranchisement Act. One aspect of this bill that was not very widely covered was the disenfranchisement of students.

Update on the Memorial Union and Disability Harassment

Update on the Memorial Union and Disability Harassment

This is about selectively targeting and enforcing policies they never care about on solely me. And it all started just because I want to live a normal life and not let my cardiac condition hinder my life so therefore use a Segway for mobility. An injustice to one is an injustice to all.

Dr.’s Getting Away With Murder and Disability Harassment!!!

The funny thing about Wisconsin Legislative Committee meetings is that the GOP is trying so hard to sneak as much as they can without publicity that you barely ever know what is actually going on. Today was another one of those days and tomorrow I will post video of the committee meeting, but please do share this blog post so that everyone know’s what is going on.

Great News: America Is Not Broke!

The Republicans keep peddling the lie that Democrats spend too much, which is laughable when you consider how much the last Republican administration expanded government and spent money. They used to tell us their bad decisions were all okay because we were ‘at war.’ Now they tell us that their bad policies are okay because we ‘are broke.’

The Tea Party Lies

The Tea Party Lies

I have always considered the Tea Party to be a little suspicious. Maybe it’s because I am originally from England, and cannot get over the naughty colonies dumping our precious tea into the sea in 1773. But in all seriousness the Tea Party, as we know them today, sprang forth soon after Barack Obama took office, and suddenly started protesting our terrible tax burden and seemed to believe that they had something in common with the colonists of 1773.
