500 Tea Party Protesters Storm a Government Building, Take Hostages

Got your attention?

Good. Because it seems that unless a story has negative implications for the tea party no one (even Fox News) is going to make a stink about it.

On Thursday morning, over 500 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (an AFL-CIO union) did something that should have been the top news story on every major news network in the country.

Crony Capitalism

The president's address on jobs last night included some soaring phrases, but it left out one crucial word that epitomizes his approach to economics: Solyndra.

Arab Oil or Canadian Oil Eh?

The last time I checked, we were not at war with Canada. And, they buy a lot of our products, the few of which are manufactured here in the USA. At the rate of 19 million barrels per day, an additional one million would certainly help, especially if the Arabs or Venezuela or some other unstable nation might decide to cut us off as in 1973. According to the last report from Suncor Energy, they have reduced their emissions and sludge ponds considerably and have built a wind farm capable of feeding 35,000 homes. They have also improved their "In Situ" recovery methods t

Need to Know

I would sure like to see the "Need to Know" segment from 9/9 made available in a way that could be put on Facebook or other social network sites. It describes and contrasts the Reagen Raw Deal with the New Deal in a very concise and compelling way. I wish every person under 30 could see it.

Last Thursday a group of timber executives opened a Washington lobbying office to press the federal government for increased timber sales on national forests.

911 information...truth or not?

Mr. Hartmann.

I wish you would address some things that I think "most" people in the news media of any sort, are afraid to speak of.

I mean "facts" vs the TRUTH.

Such as the following:

Curious long-game chess strategy...

Obama is supposedly this 'master chess player' & he is 'playing the long game'. Long-term thinking is precisely what we need; however, I have had a bit of difficulty trying to figure how a weak spine and an absence of fortitude is a solid strategy. It recently occurred to me though that progressives and activists are already active to varying degrees. The middle of the road people are not. They are passive, complacent, and in some cases outright apathetic.


Rick Perry's Social Security Ponzi Deception

To all my liberal, progressiv­e friends here. If you walk away with anything from this post today, please consider spreading this simple thought at every other political blog you frequent. It's short and simple, and Perry needs to be exposed for the fraud he is:

By Perry's logic, BANKS and INSURANCE COMPANIES are also ponzi schemes. But Perry does not want to THROW HIS RICH FRIENDS under that bus, does he?

The biggest mass extinction in the history of the world was caused by carbon dioxide. That’s the conclusion of a shocking new study published last week in Science Magazine.

According to that study - the Permian Mass Extinction - which occurred 252 million years ago - started when a group of volcanoes erupted in Siberia - sending tons upon tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
