Wisconsin: Another assault on the Bill of Rights?

The first amendment:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

It's Not My Party, but I Cried Anyway

Last nights presentation of the 83rd Academy Awards was very sad, don't you agree? I even dressed up for them, well I bathed and put on clean underwear at least. I know, I know, we the audience are pressing our collective noses against the window from the outside looking in, but…it's everyone's air.

Joe Must Go

I am sick of the passive aggressive style of Joe Scarborough and the damage he and his faux journalist friends are doing to the cause of political journalism.

Campaign Reform:

1. Limit campaign periods to 60 days for local elections; 90 days for state and congressional elections, and 120 days for presidential elections.

Take My Cap Off

How would I go about starting a petition to take the cap off of social security? We hit our cap in Novemeber, and use the extra money for Christmas. I would happily remove our cap in order to make sure benefits are not cut.

Here's what the feud and reconciliation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson can teach us about civility

Thom plus logo Donald Trump did not invent the art of the political insult but he's inflamed the level of vitriolic public discourse and incivility to a new low unmatched by other presidents. In a tainted tradition that has permeated our history, other presidents have not been immune to dishing out acerbic insults against one another.
