Senior citizens, even those in the Tea Party, LOVE Medicare. But if Republicans have their way, senior citizens won’t have Medicare for much longer. Now that the GOP is in the hands of extremists, Republicans are taking aim at Medicare in an effort to shatter the middle class and senior citizens once and for all.
Ronald Reagan’s birth certificate was issued in 1991, but he died in 2004. Does that mean he was 13 when he died, or that Presidents sometimes need new copies of their birth certificates?
Which Party’s Presidents created a majority of our debt, between 1938 and 2004?
Jan Brewer signs legislation intended to make it harder for same-sex couples to adopt.
I found this on the weekly standard, and I thought it would be worth sharing with all of you, along with some special commentary.
…It is well known that the Ryan Budget Proposal will have a real and negative affect in devastating the middle class, on whose backs the recovery is built and depends on. The hypocrisy…and no surprise… is that Paul Ryan is also a recipient of the same Social Security program he now wants to destroy…
‘The South shall rise again!’ Who knew these words would be so prophetic? Indeed, not only has the South risen, but it has also brought the Confederacy with it. However, this time it isn’t the Democratic Party that is bringing up the Confederacy, it is in fact, the Republican Party.

Liberalism has a long and rich history of creating change when it is needed the most.
Defending the Power Elite in America Against the Interests of the People: The Case of the United States Government
There are several ways the status quo, government run by the powerful and not the people, is protected in the United States. It is set up to prevent big sweeping changes and thus promotes the interests of those in power, the moneyed and political elite. Elections do little to change the underlying body politic and are only cosmetic in nature.
Republicans have been calling for a return to the Gold Standard, but is it a good idea?
After having spent the first two years of the Obama Administration, nit-picking, finding fault, gratuitously criticizing, and, when all else failed, inventing reasons to despair of the Democratic President, in the run-in to another general election, various people, pundits and politicians are still calling for this President to be primaried.
From Egypt to Tunisia to Bahrain and Yemen. All across the Middle East, people are rising up and are demanding democracy and freedom for themselves and for future generations.
Even though Michele Bachmann has become this shiny ‘rock star’ of the tea party movement, she remains this kind of elusive, mysterious woman when you think about it. Sure, we can read her bio on her website or even on Wikipedia, but what does it say really?
If we got in our “way back” machine and visited Henry Ford, we’d find out some pretty remarkable things. The material and fuel he wanted his cars to run on. It wasn’t any of DuPont’s new fangled plastics derived from petroleum or oil based gasoline. He preferred Hemp.
This was never about fiscal responsibility. It was never about balancing a budget and job creation, two of the major subjects the Republican party whined and groaned about throughout 2010. It was all about busting union power, bringing those organisations formed by working people to their proverbial knees. It was about quashing the little man. It was about keeping the peasants in their place.
February 12 is Darwin Day; a celebration of the birth of one Charles Darwin, a man who ignored dogma and, through the power of rational thought, was the first to write about the deceptively simple, yet amazingly intricate, process that is evolution.
How would you guess Ronald Reagan and the tea party are related? The Tea Party loves to celebrate the life and times of Ronald Reagan. To the so-called “conservatives” amongst us, Ronald Reagan is the patriarch of all modern conservatism. To be a “Reagan Republican” is about the highest […]
