House Republicans hell-bent on ramming through the Keystone XL pipeline passed a bill in committee on Tuesday requiring permits to be issued for the project in 30 days. The bill, which would reverse President Barack Obama's rejection of this dangerous project earlier this year, could go before the full U.S. House of Representatives any day

Some members of Congress send tax dollars to companies, colleges and community groups where their spouses, children and parents work as salaried employees, lobbyists or board members, according to an examination of federal disclosure forms and local public records by The Washington Post.
If this isn’t proof of Global Warming I don’t’ know what is. And here is one for ya, is this related to Obama authorizing the use of drones over US soil? Or how about the sales of military grade weapons to police departments throughout the Country? NDAA?
NDAA indefinite detentions, FAA Bill authorizing use of drones over American cities, Military Grade Weapons being sold to Police Depts throughtout the Country.
Anytime you want to admit the obvious to yourself, go right ahead.
Certainly not the Republicans. They can't get out of one anothers way tripping over thenselves to get to wall street and the banksters for a handout. What ever happened to this country. Can't we take care of our own citizens. We now have more poor people since the great depression. We need another FDR and HST. Someone with leadership and guts to tell it like it is.
A really concerned citizen
Someone should audit the Catholic Church's and Catholic Charities efforts to avoid child sexual abuse.
First let me get this out. It is b.s.
If the Catholic church doesn't want the government's money, they should give up their non-profit status.
Currently, churches are non-profit corporations.
This means there is no private ownership - by law the community owns them. There is also virtually no taxes paid...no income, sales, property, some wage taxes, etc.
That means that all churches get money/subsidises from the federal government...indirectly....
Therefore, if they don't like what the government asks of them, don't take the government's money and give up their non-profit status.
