A New Hampshire state representative has made himself a bit of target by telling a woman who manages a community health program in the state that he would prefer we be rid of all of those who he terms to be “defective”, even going so far as to tell the woman he thought, “Hitler did something right and I agree with (it).”
Representative Martin Harty, elected in the GOPer/Tea Party craze of 2010, has already told those he was elected to [...] [...more]

The Huckster slammed Ms. Portman for not setting a good example for AMURIKA’s YOUTH with her not married baby bump. Weighing in on this great moral issue on conservative talk host Michael Medved’s radio show the Oval Office hopeful said, “One of the [...] [...more]
Was the swan song for the Tea Party sung by Mama Grizzly when she appeared on FAUX NEWS with Sean Hannity? American’s appear to be falling out of love with the right wing extremists and their leaders.
An ABC/Washington Post Poll hints that Americans are having some second thoughts about where they dip their bags. According to the pollsters in the two months since people walked into their polling places wroth, yes wroth with the Democrats who wanted to [...] [...more]
Would our politicians look on us more kindly if they could insure we were all down on the farm. Can you imagine an America without a strong middle class? If you can, would it still be America as we know it or a nation of tenant farmers and workers dependent on the company store?
Today millions of us are unemployed, underemployed or just plain out of work. One in nine families can’t make the minimum payment on their credit cards. [...] [...more]
It is an agency riddled with morale problems. Its employees have proven to be incompetent. Some of them so corrupt they steal from the people they allegedly protect. They are the laughing stock of the law enforcement world.
Would you trust them to build and run one of the most dangerous, like world ending plague dangerous, facilities in the world? Congress did. Last year in the most outrageous piece of pork to come out of those [...] [...more]
Any resemblance to real persons, places, actions or things unmentionable are neither intentional but could be accidental and would be really frosty if any of it were true or were to occur..but what the hey people are as kinky as barrels and barrels of monkeys so have fun and chuckle. I’m still coming down from the rush of Veteran’s Day.

Add up the numbers and look at who won and who lost on Tuesday you might come to my conclusion that things are pretty rosy for the Democratic Party. The GOPers aren’t going to get anything done, except endless “investigations” by the new committee chairman who will be looking for that defining moment that places them in the running as a compromise vice presidential candidate. Mr. Boehner will be polishing up his presidential aspirations and crying at certain moments [...] [...more]

Forty years, that is how long our government has ignored the recommendations of the National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse. In 1970 the blue ribbon panel urged ending of the illegality of marijuana in the U.S. A commission in Holland recommended that the Dutch do the same thing. Their politicians listened to their experts, ours went nuts and Tricky Dick ramped up THE WAR ON DRUGS.
Almost 15 million Americans have been arrested since our cowardly politicians [...] [...more]
Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement that legalization of marijuana on a state level will be prosecuted on the federal level sets up an interesting scenario.
With General Holder stepping up to the stump, pulling out the big cop stick, waving it around and telling Californians that if they dare to legalize marijuana he and his will be coming after them. Will the people of California, a cantankerous group even in the best of times, go to the polls in greater [...] [...more]
