how the GOP is killing us…

If you’re following politics at all, you’d be forgiven if you came to the conclusion that the Republican members of Congress are insane. What is happening in our country’s politics makes absolutely no sense…that is, until you factor in corporate money (legalized bribery) and rightwing extremism (the Tea Party and a loony-tunes brand of Christianity).Continue reading “how the GOP is killing us…”

wait…the IRS manager is a…conservative Republican?

In recent weeks we have watched a number of right-wing invented scandals drown in a sea of facts. Of course, the Republicans won’t give up…they’ll continue to throw tantrums and talk impeachment and invent new scandals, just like they do every time the Democrats have the presidency.

The Republicans are in control of the House, and you may wonder how they’re spending their time.

the truth-deniers (and austerity)

There remains no room for independent thinking within the conservative movement.  Being a good liberal doesn’t require that you believe (or pretend to believe) lots of things almost certainly aren’t true; but being a good conservative does. -Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize-winning economist Krugman says that conservatives who acknowledge the connection between humans and global warming,Continue reading “the truth-deniers (and austerity)”

oh, the whacky things conservatives say…

Based on an article by Allen Clifton.  Like Allen, I’ve been amused, saddened and surprised by some of these super-frequent conservative statements that don’t seem to have a lot of thought behind them. The government never does anything for me.”– Said by the person who drove on public roads from their job that provides overtime payContinue reading “oh, the whacky things conservatives say…”

Obama administration “scandals” for dummies*

Turn on any news station this past week, and you’ll see the Republicans practically wetting themselves with glee over the triple “scandal” smorgasbord that’s been laid out before them (the Justice Department’s subpoenaing of AP phone records; the attack in Benghazi; and the IRS’s scrutiny of right-leaning “social welfare” groups). First, some context We allContinue reading “Obama administration “scandals” for dummies*”
