Help, I’m in an alternate universe!

I just realized tonight that by moving to Silicon Valley, I once again moved to an area stricken by Stockholm syndrome. Why do working class conservatives refer to gambling money won by a bunch of selfish day traders as money “earned”. I’m sorry, earned, I ask. Money earned is when you provide goods or services

a 2012 Pledge for candidates...

Taking a page from Grover Norquist, why not create a pledge to be signed by anyone running for federal office which declares that the signer will not accept money or gifts of any kind from lobbyists. With an approval rating of less than 20% any congress or senate candidate should have trouble winning a close race if they haven’t signed this pledge. It will be amusing to see and hear how any of them will defend not signing such a pledge.

I do not support the attempt to infringe on the right to vote, but the idea that "Blacks" don't have id, is not true in my family. I have no idea where you get your stereotypes and misinformation, but it is very obvious you have been misinformed about "Black" people.

WAKE UP: The benefits of discounting our future for paychecks now will be more than offset by the cost of continuing environmental failures.

A good example is the Oil and Gas industry.

Fracking: Another example of Obama leveraging the Environment for political gain.

60,000 acres of virgin old-growth pacific northwest rain forest got liquidated by Obama so he could get the votes he need for ObamaHealthInsurerCare. Now Fracking is flourishing throughout the U.S. with the expected damage to our environment - especially potable water (a critical resource.)
