Revealed - The Tea Party Paid for by Phillip Morris

The Tea Party of 1773 was a revolt against transnational corporate power - and its stranglehold on the British government. The Tea Party of today is funded by those very same transnational corporations. So what's happened over the last 40 years?

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Rosorialously Ugly!

The Good! *New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez ®* Martinez - a Republican - said on Monday night that she would be willing to sign proposed gun control legislation that is aimed at closing the so-called "gun-show loophole" in New Mexico. Martinez told a local blogsite that, quote, "I think I could support it if it stays the way it is, that has, number one, keeping the guns out of the hands of people who don't have any business having guns." A bill to close the gun show loophole has already passed through a committee in the New Mexico state house - and will be taken up by the full state house tomorrow. Kudos to Gov. Martinez - for standing up to her party - and for putting the lives of Americans ahead of gun lobby interests.

USPS...NBC Get Your Facts Right!

If you watched Meet The Press this weekend - you heard David Gregory talk about the crumbling state of the US Postal Service. But he left out one pretty big detail about the post office's demise. Whether it's lazy journalism or an effort to give cover to the corporatists, the news media is assisting in the demise of the Post Office - an institution started by Ben Franklin that's older than the United States itself. So that leaves it up to us - "we the people" - to tell the real story about what's happening. The Digital Age isn't killing the Post Office. Instead, the demise of the Post Office is another good ol' fashioned story of corporate corruption of politicians and a Republican Party that exists, first and foremost, to serve the CEO class and screw the middle class.

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Dipseticously Ugly!

The Good! *The American People* Nearly 26000 people have signed a petition on the White House's "We The People" page to fire Assistant US Attorney Steve Heymann. Heymann was the lead attorney in the prosecution of internet pioneer Aaron Swartz - who tragically took his own life last month. Heymann has been accused of gross prosecutorial overreach - and of trying to turn Swartz's case into a career-booster. If convicted - Swartz was looking at serving more time in jail than some drug-dealers, burglars, and even murderers. But this problem is bigger than just Heymann. The American justice system is broken - and needs to be fixed. Let's hope that Aaron didn't die in vain - and that his death will be the catalyst of change that is desparately needed in our judicial system.

The biggest mass extinction in the history of the world was caused by carbon dioxide. That’s the conclusion of a shocking new study published last week in Science Magazine.

According to that study - the Permian Mass Extinction - which occurred 252 million years ago - started when a group of volcanoes erupted in Siberia - sending tons upon tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
