Do Rush LImbaugh and Bill Maher have the same power, and the same amount of responsibility? Are you KIDDING?

A previous poster made an equivalence argument between Bill Maher and Rush Limbaugh -- saying that maybe Maher should have his million dollar contribution to Obama returned.

But let's look at this argument.

Bill Maher is on HBO, cable TV. I have never used the words he used recently, but I am not a comic, etc. I do have a little cable TV show that comes on locally once a month, and I would never, ever have used those terms.

Sale of Domestically Produced Petroleum Products

I have posted a new petition to WhiteHouse.gov at:
http://wh.gov/XhQ
where it can be viewed, and signed.
It’s titled, “Sale of Domestically Produced Petroleum Products”
and reads:
“Petroleum products refined from crude oil pumped from the ground of the
United States, or ground under its territorial waters, can only be sold in
the United States.”
If this petition gets 25,000 signatures by April 07, 2012, the White House
says they will review, and respond to it.

Do our judicial, congress & senate peoples enjoy prescriptions of Testosterone as part of their socialistic government health coverage?

I am wondering about this. I am aware there are medical prescriptions for this hormonal boost. From my observations I believe our illustrious law makers & law enforcers do receive them as they have the best health care we tax payers can provide for them. But I don't know for sure and have not been able to find any record of just exactly what their coverage provides.

If we ALL must endure cut backs & austerity, I don't want my tax dollars paying for any more viagra or testosterone - if this is the case.

the Hopi prophesy

Dear Thom Hartmann,

Why is the President not returning Bill Maher's 1 million dollar donation?

If you all remember Bill Maher called Sarah Palin and other woman quite nasty words. I didnt like it at all. Why is the President not returning it to him. Does it mean if someone on the left its ok to call woman those words, but on the right you cant?

Obama’s ties to Goldman Sachs Defrauding Greece into bankruptcy.

[When you read this bear in mind that Goldman Sachs is in the Jurisdiction of the New York Federal Reserve where Jeffery Immelt sits on the Board of Directors. Immelt was appointed by Obama to his disgraceful President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Immelt is a Republican with ties to the Clintons and Bush Administration. Timot

99% SCREWED: Idaho Governor asks Obama for control of the People’s Timber$$$ reserves located on Federal lands.

Forest Service and Conservation groups say Governor’s excuse is basically horse shit but that didn’t stop Obama from giving the State $5.7 million to pay private logging companies for the timber they will harvest and sell$$$.

Constitutional Convention

Fellow Patriots, I see a number of states are petitioning congress to amend the constitution for various reasons. I suggest we start the dialogue to figure out how we petition congress for a constitutional convention as stated in Article V of our constitution we need 2/3 of the states to agree. I know there are a number of issues we need to address as a nation, and we need to come together soon to accomplish this before our constitution is done away with. I request that the Occupy Wall St. adopt this as their new motto. This could be the clear demand that the lamestream media says we lack.

Minnesota is not being represented at the state level

As a citizen of Minnesota I am appalled by what my GOP controlled state representatives are doing. They are not focusing on jobs and remain focused on social issues.

First, they are trying to disenfranchise voters by passing a voter ID law. For more on that go to: http://www.mnprogressiveproject.com/diary/11103/voter-id-amendment-these-are-not-unintended-consequences

Which is the Bigger Sales 'Flop'? The 'Vette or the Volt?

In case you haven't heard, GM is temporarily suspending production of the Volt at its Detroit-Hamtramck plant for five weeks. The reason given is to adjust production to demand, which, frankly hasn't been burning any barns since its launch in December 2010. Of course, that news elicited at least one pundit calling the car a "flop." But is it really? Not if history or even current sales is any measure.

EPA closure

Mojave Generating Station in Laughlin, NV was a coal-fired electric generation plant which used to be owned by Southern California Edison and employed some 700 people for over 30 years. It was closed in 2005 because it was too expensive to bring the plant up to EPA code. FYI

Cory Booker's Vote Shows Why To Get Money Out Of Politics


On Friday House Republicans joined their Senate colleagues and approved a measure that will allow them to repeal Obamacare using a process known as budget reconciliation. Meanwhile, the pressure is growing on them to come up with some kind of replacement plan.

Unfortunately, they still don't have one.
