Dear Mike Huckabee.......

Wow! I had to STOP COOKING to post this! I couldn't believe my ears when I heard Mike Huckabee try to make President Obama sound bad. I think he might not even realize just how many people he offended by his reference to who was the bad guys in westerns. So I have to ask Mike Huckabee......

Noam Chomsky Mops Up the Floor with the Witty Sam Harris

Noam Chomsky undresses Sam Harris: Stop “pretending to have a rational discussion.”
The new atheist and torture-supporter tries to "engineer a public conversation" about terrorism and humiliates himself in the process.

Tell MoveOn to Back Bernie Sanders

MoveOn has a petitions function, and someone started one to get MoveOn to back Bernie. They have, up until now, been active in trying to draft Elizabeth Warren. But with Bernie actually running, many think it's time for them to start supporting an actual candidate. The petition states:

"Elizabeth Warren is not going to run for president. Bernie Sanders is. The "Run, Warren, Run" effort should now join the "Win, Bernie, Win" movement."

Will Hillary Debate Bernie?

I don't see how Hillary can avoid debating Bernie during the primary season.

Firstly, the DNC has sent out an e-mail (a fund-raising e-mail, but an email none-the-less) welcoming Bernie into the race. It looks like the DNC is actually encouraging Hillary to engage with Bernie. I think they want her to do it in an effort to keep progressives, like me, "on the reservation."

Can EVERYONE Do Well, Or Get Rich In A Supply And Demand Economy?

Of the forum's members, an extreme if not pathological, moralist, seems to believe that if one is poor they are moral failures and government should punish them with a draconian 15-20% flat tax, no deduction which would drastically eat into income needed to survive. Conversely if one is rich... it's proof they are morally superior and a progressive tax "punishes" their success. That the top 1%, 0.1% and top 0.01% have captured all of the income growth in the past years...

Freedom of Expression, Texas Style...

Texas: Police Kill 2 Gunmen Outside Anti-Islam Event

NASA Administrator Statement on House Authorization Bill

NASA Administrator Statement on House Authorization Bill

The following is a statement from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden on the House of Representatives’ NASA authorization bill:

Garland, Texas Police set up Ambush at Hate Speech Event Disguised as Mohammed “Art Event.” I was right!

And of course two men responded with violence just as the event organizers planned. The ‘art event’ is simply agitation propaganda designed to spark violence so they can play the victim of religious intolerance, or suppressed freedom of expression. Odd that we do not here the same outrage when Florida Gov. Rick Scott banned government officials from using the term “climate change” and “global warming” communications, emails, and reports.
