Secret meetings between the oil giant Shell and President Obama resulted in an announcement this week that Obama is fast-tracking new offshore oil drilling on the Atlantic coast, Gulf of Mexico, and opening up a 24-million-acre wilderness area in Alaska to oil drilling.
Another Republican family values hypocrite
Today I phoned the Indiana Supreme Court to register my dismay at it's majority attacking the 4th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.... After making the reason for my call known to the young lady who answered the phone, I was refered to another young woman who with great courtesy listened to my position, and took considerable trouble to let me know how judges while appointed in Indiana were subject, after two years, to election.
I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired letter writing, protesting and calling my so-called representatives with no redress. These “strangers” we elect into office have no interest in our interests and have no qualms with completely ignoring our demands or needs. They are beholden to corporations and are more concerned with their career advancements than what is best for the country and its citizens. What do we do?
Picture of a steel floating structure used to store contaminated water.
Oceanographers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute are on the scene in Japan and suggest the groundwater around Fukushima and sediments in the seafloor nearby “will likely be contaminated for decades.” At this point the long-term impact on marine life, fish, and other marine animals can only be guessed.
Last year the government had to borrow $37 billion to prop up SSI for the first time, so when Thom tells you that it isn't coming from the General Fund, he is wrong. If you go to factcheck.org, Democrats Deny SSI Red Ink, you can read it for yourself. Making it worse, Obama lowered the FICA tax from 6% to 4%, which will add more to the debt. This year there will be $45 billion borrowed to keep it going and will continue to each year have to borrow more.

I think the most dangerous thing the Republicans are doing is trying to prevent people from voting by passing draconian registration laws. Their intent is to disenfranchise as many voters as possible to ive them an advantage in elections. I am also suspicious of electronic voting because I think that in some states it is rigged by the Republicans. Rachel Maddow has focused on this several times but it has not been picked up by others as a critical issue. If the Republicans succeed in restricting voting while favoring their voters the will steal our country.
