The Mike Pence Dog Won't Hunt

But that doesn't stop the Old Boy from broadcasting lies to save his Hate Law. The man undeniably HAS NO SHAME.

What does a Republican Governor do for a "Snowy Day"??? Ask for a hand-out??

The record setting snow fall for Boston and parts of Massachusetts resulted in a request by the Republican Governor Baker to ask the United States of America to pay for snow removal. Snow has been happening in Boston for many years, but because of budget cuts and poor planning to get elected leaders... $400 million has been requested to pay for snow removal efforts in Massachusetts.

Even a broken clock gets it right once in a while.

What does Matthew Chapter 25 REALLY mean ? Hint: Thom’s reading of it is NOT giving the full meaning.

When Thom read portions of Matthew 25, verses 31 through about 41 in his March 30 program, he read the passages correctly using the future tense, such as the following passages:

Republican's and religion

I remember G W Bush telling the American people that God told him to invade Iraq but have not heard a word of this since. What if someone in congress had said that God told him the opposite, who's God would win???

Will contraception be hard to get in Indiana

We have been talking about gay discrimination but what about doctors who refuse to write contraception prescription, pharmacists who refuse to sell Plan B or contracptive devices and pills. This has far reaching consequences.

A Christian Nation ? Really ?

He gave aid and comfort to the poor, the sick and the weak. He spoke out against greed, violence and war. He taught us that peace, love, forgiveness and tolerance were the way of god. He told us that we must take care of those who are less fortunate. Who was this radical liberal who died for his cause? He was a man called Jesus Christ.

Wisconsin Republicans Abandoning Scott Walker

Democratic Underground, March 29, 2015

On March 25, 2015, former editor of the Waukesha Freeman and conservative Pete Kennedy published an opinion piece in the paper urging Wisconsin conservatives to not only reject Scott Walker, but to hold him responsible for the damage he has done to the state.

Kennedy is not the only Wisconsin Republican abandoning Scott Walker.

What do you believe?

How religious is America? What would be your best guess? According to a survey taken in August of 2014 on behalf of the Religion News Service, America is in the midst of a "great decline" among the mainstream churches. In 1994, 94% of those who attended church identified with that church. Today, that is about 85%. Church membership is down from 69% ten years ago to approximately 59%. Speaking of church attendance, that's down to about 53% in 2014 compared to 62% in 1994.

Topeka, Kansas Cops Institute "Hands Up Immediately" Policy

Topeka, Kansas police have instituted an authoritarian policy of requiring that all citizens involved in traffic stops must pull over and immediately put their hands up in the air in the "I surrender pose" no matter the severity of the alleged infraction. The police spokesperson was quoted while speaking to a network Topeka affiliate the following statement: "We have to treat everyone as being potentially dangerous no matter who they are".

Indiana's New Religious Law legalizing Discrimination

The Republicans are still trying to conceal their bigotry, this time (again) calling it Religious Freedom. What a joke they are… thinking people are so stupid that they could slip this act of discrimination by them without any objections. The only ones who believe this chicanery to be a righteous sign of religious freedom, are the diehards on the Far Fringe Right-wing side of sanity.

Anyone else can tell this is an odious and hateful law that reaches so far back in time, it mimics the days when tolerance, was a mark of weakness.

Failure of Ideology: Unemployment on the rise in Wisconsin.

Walker is becoming locally known as "President-God-Forbid"

http://wtaq.com/news/articles/2015/mar/25/wisconsin-unemployment-rates-rise-in-most-metros/

Walker creates new class of working poor by changing Food Stamps into corporate welfare program.

This from the Isthmus weekly news magazine: (note the modifications to the program amount to "spending state dollars to forfeit federal money" and "every $5 in SNAP assistance generates $9 in economic activity")

In the biblical story of the loaves and the fishes, Jesus fed the multitude simply because they were hungry. That was naive, it seems, as we are now learning from a Baptist minister’s son, Gov. Scott Walker.

Why the House of Representatives Doesn’t Represent Americans

One of the really weird ironies of politics these days is the huge divergence between what the American people actually want and what the radical right-wingers in Washington actually do. You won’t hear this on Fox So-Called News, but right now the American people are as progressive as they ever have been.

Don’t believe me? Just check the polls.
