In Dineesh D’Souza’s newest (and awful) “psuedo-documentary”, on September 11, 1777 (yeah! 9/11) General George Washington is gunned down by a British assassin and in the next few moments we see the Statue of Liberty and the Faces of Mt. Rushmore crumble like dust into the air

Hillary Clinton2

Hillary and Bill Clinton are incredibly wealthy people who move in the circles of the same wealthy and powerful who have inordinate control over our democracy and society, they are friends and peers with them…so is it most likely that if elected, she’s going to hammer her best friends to help “the others”?

Medicare_and_Medicaid_GDP_Chart

We can scream about republican recalcitrance, but when we had power (albeit brief), we spent it developing policies that favored the 1% and submarined any efforts to punish those who robbed the bottom 99% percent of their lifesavings. We created the stimulus which was trickle-down lite.

C-Kabat

Father Carl Kabat, an 80 year old priest who has spent some 17 years in prison for protesting against war and weapons, spent the Fourth of July spattering red paint across a sign at a Kansas City plant just opened.

the fox kit and mom

These pictures are random from my “game camera”. I set it in a couple places around my house. I get many critters that show up.

SCOTUS’ Hobby Lobby decision hurt but there is a far more dangerous threat working its way through the courts that could kill most subsidies.

Voting Booth

We are “responsible for the greatest trust ever confided to a political society.” (Patrick Henry) But as polling demonstrates the American Public has shirked its responsibility in failing to be the informed electorate that John Adams believed was the foundation of any democracy.

Thomas_P._Rossiter,_Signing_of_the_Constitution

If one engages with a theocrat and takes the time to debunk enough of their claims, eventually, they will get into ambiguous territory like what was the “Real” intent of the founders.

So many, many times I hear so many of my fellow Americans claim that the United States is a Christian nation, as our founding fathers intended it to be. They continue to claim that our founders were god fearing, Christian men who for all intents and purposes designed our nation […]

children borders

Suddenly, unaccompanied children are pouring across the border from Mexico. They are not all from Mexico but from Honduras and other Central American countries. Where do we start to end the crossings?

Scotus - Hobby Lobby protest

Speaking of Christian values, whatever happened to bearing false witness? Hobby Lobby set up shop in a state where they’d have to pay for employee healthcare including emergency contraception.

SCOTUS - Hobby Lobby

This is as close to a declaration of a Zombie Apocalypse we have gotten from this Supreme Court to date. It is The Night of the Living Religious Corporation…they’re alive! And they have more rights than the actual people who work for them! Get the canned food and the shotgun, they’re coming to your neighborhood next!

marines - war

drought2

The warming we’ve seen is setting feedback loops that guarantee higher levels of warming. The melting of the Siberian permafrost means thousands of gigatons of methane (more damaging as greenhouse effect than carbon dioxide) released into the atmosphere.

GOP - Tantrum

Since it is Republican policy to do nothing for America and since Obama is doing something for America…which contradicts their policy, they are seeking to sue him. I believe the charge is “Driving Policy While Democrat…and Black”.
