Going For Broke

Zimmerman and Ferguson Koch

Own the NRA's obscene joke

Tents R the presents

Of a new P B essence

Who do they poke when going for broke?

PepsiCo’s palm oil linked to child labor and slavery.

Why am I not surprised?!?

This from the Rainforest Action Network:

Aiding Climate Collapse with subsidies: “Effective Tax Rates of Oil & Gas Companies: Cashing in on Special Treatment”

If only renewable energy were given the same emphasis as fossil fuels. If they were, they'd probably be even more efficient instead we see horribly polluting "innovation" in the oil and gas industry.

My Uncomfortable Racial Confession

I was raised in a racist environment. Not an environment of klansmen and swastikas, but a sadly typical 1960’s white, working class, racist environment.

NEED TO REMIND PEOPLE WHY THEY NEED TO VOTE IN DEMOCRATS?

Let's all remember why President Obama was elected in the first place.

The "Party of Personal Responsibility" has been denying culpability for the ruin they caused after their TOTAL POWER autocratic rule of 2000-2009.

They were even forced to create another fictionalized party, the Tea Bagger Party, to rebrand themselves and deflect attention from the 2nd Republican Party Great Depression. Pubs were trying to convince America that they were the same,…..but somehow different. Curiously, it worked in the 2010 elections.

FICTITIOUS TUTORIAL MANUAL FOR CONSERVATIVE BLOGGERS

TACTICS FOR EFFECTIVE CONSERVATIVE BLOGGING

Engage
Demand an elaborate, time-consuming comparison / analysis between your position and theirs.

Entangle
Insist that the Liberal put their posts “in their own words”. That will consume the most time and effort for the Liberal poster. They will be unable to spread numerous points on numerous blogs if you have them occupied. Allowing a Liberal to post a web link is too quick and efficient for them. Tie them up. We are going for delay of game here.

Prison for Miscarriages?

Thom plus logo Mike Pence's and the GOP's war on women took a sinister turn this week when Planned Parenthood was forced to abandon Title X funding; they can no longer get payment for serving low income women for cancer screenings and STD treatments.
