"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Nothing describes right-wing policy better than Jesus' appearance on Hannity to advertise his hot new movie where Obama played the Devil but they cut that part out so don't worry.
There has been no greater offense to God in my lifetime than the smarm from the mouth of the lady representing Jesus.

http://www.humanewatch.org/glenn-beck-dont-give-money-to-hsus/ check out the posters and their fawning over rush. One boasted his/her kids listen to rush, the only truth teller in america. A mind IS a terrible thing to waste, but neuro studies show the brain deformities that spawn conservative balderdash are genetic and are passed on, so if there is no mind, there is no waste.
Unregistered knives cause 28 deaths, and 113 injured at Chinese train station. Perhaps only allowing factory dulled knives to be sold could have prevented this tragedy?
Perhaps it is time for a Gov. sponsored Knife Buyback Program?
I'm all for same sex equality under the law.
But I have to wonder why liberals are so hung up about this issue and seem totally blind to a more pervasive denial of rights to political "minorities"?
Government has many policies that give one group or another some benefit or advantage. We all know the easily identifiable safety net and Affirmative Action programs. But some government policies are more subtle. For instance... the reduced tax rate on capital gains income. Is this an affirmative action program to help the spoiled brat kids of millionaires who could never make it on their own? Now they can accumulate wealth faster and therefore pull themselves up by their own bootstraps! What about the mortgage deduction on interest for second homes?
I originally thought this would be funny, enough research into the language and format of real State Department travel warning and some snark about Arizona and wingnut bigots in general. The thing is, what they are doing is NOT FUNNY. It's creepy and bleak.

This expansion is good, but...
If you make more than 138% of the poverty level, you will be in for a VERY unpleasant surprise.
Under Medicaid, virtually everything is paid for.
The title is actually an oxymoron, but I hear pundits use it and some of the gop circular firing squad adopt the lable for themselves and anyone seeking to oust an impure gop member.
I have no idea why, but the conservatives seem to be losing ground finally in a BIG way.
Just this week the big fight over AZ gay discrimination has made republican lawmakers anti-business!
Texas ban on gay marraiges was just overturned today.
Arizona's new bill allowing business owners to discriminate by refusing to serve people based on the owner's "religious beliefs" is in a bit of trouble. Even the GOP legislators who voted yes to this bill are having buyer's remorse. One Republican member interviewed by Chris Hayes expressed remorse for his vote and stated that he hopes Governor Brewer will veto the bill. What's curious about his admission that his vote was wrong is that his motive isn't one of conscience. He regrets the upshot of what will happen to the business community in Arizona.
