Guns & GOP Hypocrisy

As soon as the President finished revealing his proposals to reduce gun violence yesterday - Republicans attacked - some even calling for his impeachment.

Could we save humanity by ending factory farming?

Is our national habit of eating dead animals dragging us closer and closer to a flu pandemic that could kill tens of millions of Americans?

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

The Good! *Steve Chalke* Chalke - a Baptist minister in the UK - and one of the leaders of the Evangelical movement - has published an essay in support of same-sex unions and relationships. In his essay, Chalke writes, "When we refuse to make room for gay people to live in loving, stable relationships, we consign them to lives of loneliness, secrecy, fear and even of deceit...I do believe that the Church has a God given responsibility to include those who have for so long found themselves excluded." This endorsement of same-sex unions is a big deal - especially coming from an Evangelical leader.

Vote Rigging - The GOP is taking advice from Stalin

The raging debate in Washington over the debt ceiling may help to determine the short-term fate of our nation - but the battle over the long-term future of our democracy isn't being fought on Capitol Hill. Voter Suppression ID laws, cuts to early voting, long lines in heavily Democratic precincts, and new hurdles to voter registration are nothing compared to this latest vote-rigging scheme. While most of us are focused on "fiscal cliffs" and budget battles in Washington, DC, the real fight for the future of our democracy is, right now, happening in State legislatures in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Michigan.

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

The Good! *Martha MacCallum* Normally in the GBU - we go after Fox So-Called News and it's assortment of talking heads for practicing phony journalism. But this morning - in what may be a first for the network - Fox host Martha MacCallum actually asked a Republican a question - and when he refused to answer - she continued to press him and wouldn't let up. Tea Party Congressman Steve King refused to address specific spending cuts that the Republican Party would support in the debt ceiling debate. MacCallum also did a great job of showing that Republicans are intent on letting America default on its debt - and don't have a plan B to deal with the debt ceiling.
