shhh

Ever notice how you're supposed to get involved with politics? Do you understand this is a smoke screen to divert your attention that all political stuff that matters is done behind closed doors and with you in mind only not how you think?

in this age of modernity, there are no coincidences

I for one would like to know if Michael Hastings was prone to drive alone at 3 am, and, who spoke with him last, what they said, was he a good driver? He didn't seem to be under stress on tv, but you can't tell. Looks like we'll just sweep it under the rug, let me tell you though, if he'd exposed Tony Soprano, hmm, actually that must have been what he was up to. Its so easy to follow someone 'til a tree comes into play, and you rush up and then gently push the car ahead's right rear bumper and they will spin in a counterclockwise manner, out of control.

Sex Worker Rights Advocates Celebrate Supreme Court Decision on Anti-Prostitution Pledge

Sex worker rights advocates around the world celebrate this milestone decision which confirms our critique of this policy. Although this Sumpreme Court decision has been consistently reported as "striking down the Anti Prositution Pledge" (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/20/supreme-court-anti-prostitution...) we are still unclear as to the impact of this decision on foreign based organizations. As the Pledge was struck down on 1st Amendment grounds, we ask, how will this apply to organizations outsde the U.S.?

Border Control

Repubs are trying to upset immigration. I have a question. How are they going to pay for this increase border surveillance?

GOPers will stoop to any level to defend stingy attitudes regarding SNAP cuts.

Honestly, what's left for the GOP to pull besides what a Republican Congressman's aide came up with for a stunt to "prove" nobody will lose out with the GOP's newer and more draconian levels of SNAP allotments?

movement politics, ha ha ha, nice try Fahrenheit

when pigs fly, which really may happen soon, if the reports gw is going to be 9 degrees, now that will signify some movement politics, when hair is on fire, then water becomes money, now focus shifts, money not so important, right now, it's the only game in town, but, and, perhaps, think again Oh KIng Hartmann :-)

"Company" Money, or "YOUR" Money??

Just listening to Thom talk about CEOs taking hundreds of milliand to BILLIONS of dollars out of "companies" for their own personal wealth-building (specifically, the CEO of United Healthcare) made me think: is that REALLY "COMPANY" money, or is it really OUR MONEY, ALL coming out of OUR pockets from OUR premium payments??!!

The Great NSA Government Employment Program

In a recent development the Secret NSA budget has been set to be 7 trillion dollars. General Alexander reported on this secret program which is set to employ all unemployed workers who wish jobs as employees of the NSA. The unemployed workers will be given jobs watching the rest of us and there will be no unemployed workers. This will both elminated unemployment and place the U.S. on a path towards full deployment. Alexander noted in his testimony that he had doubts that half the population watching the rest of us would be enough to combat the terrorist threat.

Egypt's archeological sites: PLUNDERING continues unchecked -- because of USA's choices

No concerted effort is being taken by the new government in Egypt to halt the looting free-for-all of fragile ancient Eyptian archelogical sites.

Well, the world's loss of ancient Egyptian heritage is due to disgusting policies of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton which allowed today's Egypt to dissolve into a culturally backward place.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
