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

The Good! *Senator Elect Elizabeth Warren* Warren has come out in favor of filibuster reform - something that I have talked about many time on this program. In a blog posting on Huffington Post - Warren wrote that America will never be able to accomplish what truly needs to be done if "we can't get up-or-down votes in the Senate." She went on to say that the current usage of filibusters in the Senate is "paralyzing progress" and that she will help lead the change to create sensible filibuster reform on day one of the new session of Congress. There are so many pressing issues in America right now - and the change we need will only come about if the Senate is finally able to act.

Florida's Privatized Vote Problem

Brad Friedman, The Brad Blog joins Thom Hartmann. Though Democrat Patrick Murphy was declared the winner in the race, and is even attending orientation on Capitol Hill - his opponent, freshman Tea Party Congressman Allen West is refusing to concede. Especially now that 800 votes vanished over the weekend when an unsanctioned recount was conducted on electronic voting machines in one county in the district. Those vanished votes allowed West to gain 500 votes on Murphy - bringing the margin between the two candidates very close to just a half-percent, which would trigger an automatic recount. But what happened to those vanished votes? And isn't this more proof we can't trust electronic voting machines?

Spending vs. Investing...what makes America work?

There's something that every single American family understands, that Conservative budget hawks don't want us to talk about, and that's the difference between spending and investing. Let's assume that the typical American family collects its paycheck at the end of the month and decides to go out to eat for a fancy dinner. A couple glasses of wine, an appetizer, four entrees, and a few desserts later, the waiter brings the check and -- at least here in DC -- that family is now out about $150. Do that once a month as a special treat, and you're pushing $2000 a year. That money is not coming back. It was spent and is now gone.

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

The Good! *Eureka Springs, Arkansas* On Monday - Eureka Springs became the first city in Arkansas to officially endorse marriage equality. A four member majority of the city council approved the measure. Eureka Springs has a population of 2300 - and is often called "the San Francisco of Arkansas" for both its physical resemblance to the city and it's large LGBT population. Eureka Springs decision to endorse marriage equality comes just weeks after another Southern city - Austin, Texas - did the same thing. Both of these decisions show that support for marriage equality is spreading throughout America. Hopefully it won't be long before marriage equality is a right in our country.

The Post-Citizens United Era.

This month marks five years since the United States Supreme Court made their infamous ruling in the case of Citizens United v. FEC. That ruling turned a century of legal precedent on its head with the declaration that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend money in elections. And, that ruling opened the floodgates to massive spending levels in our political process.
