Today's Declaration by Patrick Henry?

Today's Declaration by Patrick Henry?

I cannot say, for certain, what Patrick Henry would say regarding the current state of affairs in Washington, D.C.; but, I am going to do the best I can at framing what I think he would have to say about what is currently taking place there.

" GOP Payroll Tax Cut Demands! " ( the new ) " What Now Cartoon "

With the payroll tax cut being held for hostage by the GOP, and the demands not getting much media attention beyond the one year, two month comparison, I thought this was an important topic for a cartoon to share some of the vile details of their demands.

The oil contradiction

Why is it we hear so many people shouting about we need to find more places to drill for oil when they waste what they are already drilling look at the waste in Russia and the spill in the gulf of mexico, they don't care about the oil they try to run the operation as cheaply as they can its more about the money they get from oil and no one seems to be making that public, what about all the oil it takes to manufacture plastic bags, if they were concerned about oil production they would try to get rid of plastic bags

Bill overheard telling Hillary, “baby is a big fine women won’t ya back that thing up”

You’re right, I really should show respect to the darlings of the Washington/Wall Street nexus who continue to be an anathema if not an abject miscarriage of our democratic principles and the spirit and intent for which the people erroneously extended their trust.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."
