Where were the "3 amigos" when the GOP lied us into war?

Three Amigos never uttered a peep when Colin Powell or Condi Rice or George W. Bush or Dick Cheney were lying to Congress and the American people about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. They don't give a damn about the truth - it's all politics for this bunch. And, hopefully, the Obama Administration has now realized that the new Three Amigos, just like the old Three Amigos, is still just a small-time gang of Republican punks out to take down Democrats and promote wars.

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

The Good! *Tom Ricks* How dare someone on Fox News and bash the network. At least that's what network execs and production staff were saying yesterday after Ricks - a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist - blasted the network's coverage of the Benghazi consulate attacks. Ricks' interview was supposed to be 4 minutes long - but he was cut off after speaking what can only be described as the truth. Kudos to you Tom for calling out Fox So-Called News and their flow of unfair and unbalanced misinformation

Will Religion Kill Obamacare?

Ethan Rome, Healthcare for America Now, joins Thom Hartmann. Now to the continued battle over Obamacare. This week - the Supreme Court ordered a lower court, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, to re-hear a case challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare. Liberty University filed suit against the law's "employer mandate," arguing that it violates the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, since it could lead to employers paying for health insurance that covers birth control. The lawsuit was previously dismissed on technical grounds since the employer mandate hasn't fully gone in effect yet. So, depending on how the Fourth Circuit rules in this case, the Supreme Court could once again determine the fate of tens of millions of Americans who don't have health insurance.

Who Won the Black Friday Hunger Games?

Every year after Thanksgiving, the nation's wealthy elite, still fat-bellied from turkey and cornbread stuffing, tune in to their local news outlets and observe what has become an annual tradition of bloodletting and frenzied consumerism. We call it "Black Friday." But to those like the Walmart heirs who together own more wealth than the bottom 40% of the nation combined, it might as well be called their very own "Hunger Games." It's their stores, after all, that play host to this one-day battle - waged by poor and working class people - to get discounted appliances, clothes, and toys for their kids. Like Suzanne Collins' dystopic future portrayed in The Hunger Games, in which impoverished teenagers battle each other to the death once a year for the amusement of Panem's wealth elite, Black Friday "Battle Royales" often end in death as well. In just the last few years, we've seen shoppers and retail workers shot to death, trampled to death, pepper-sprayed, bitten, punched, and kicked, all in their pursuit for Black Friday shopping deals.

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

The Good! *Christiana Figueres* In an interview with Yale Environment 360 - Figueres - the top UN diplomat for international climate negotiations - said that Superstorm Sandy serves as "yet another wake-up call" for the US to cut carbon pollution. She also asked why the United States was willing to let other countries pursure clean-energy technologies at the expense of American jobs and economic growth. Figueres also predicted increased frustration with the United States if lawmakers in Washington fail to participate in the global fight to curb climate change over the next four years. Superstorm Sandy should be a wake-up call to everyone in this country - but let's see if politicians on Capitol Hill get that message - and finally do something to curb climate change.

It cost corporations less than $18,000 bucks per vote to get “fast track” passed in the United States Senate.

According to a recent analysis by The Guardian Newspaper, corporate members of the US Business Coalition for TPP donated more than $1.1 million dollars to Senate campaigns in the first quarter of 2015. The average Democrat received about $9,700 dollars and the average Republican raked in almost $20,000.
