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

The Good! *Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Senator Bernie Sanders introduced legislation today to cut off corporate tax breaks and loopholes. The Corporate Tax Fairness Act gets rid of the "deferral" loophole that allows corporations to avoid paying taxes in the US on any profits they make overseas. The legislation also closes several other loopholes that allowed corporations to pay an average 12% tax rate in 2011 - the lowest in 40 years. We don't have a spending problem in America - we have a revenue problem with billionaire and billion-dollar corporations not paying their fair share in taxes. Kudos to Senator Bernie Sanders for taking on this issue.

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
