It is so great that arming Syrian rebels is nothing like arming other kinds of rebels such as ISIL.

Abets wars from within his hood

A genteel changeling from the south

Term Limits for the House of Representatives

Using term limits may lead to throwing out the baby with the bathwater; however, after serving their first term, a representative could be handicapped against his opponent, by requiring that for reelection, he capture 1 to 2 percent more of the vote than his opponent. In other words, an incumbent would be required to capture 51 percent of the vote whereas his opponent would only require 49% plus one vote to win. A two term incumbent would have to capture 52% etc............. Another cure would be to ammend the constitution to lengthen the House term to 4 years, with

Obama's fracking industry is running wild.

This from the Natural Resources Defense Council:

The fracking industry is running wild.

Conservative Walker has plunged Wisconsin deep into debt for decades to come largely to benefit his cronies.

This from the Isthmus forum:

“Because Walker took out about $714 million in 30-year loans plus interest in his first two-year budget, and is taking out $2.05 billion in new loans in the 2013/15 year budget, he’s increased the annual structural deficit for decades to come.

What America Has Become

What America Has Become

What has America become? It has become a land where "conservatism" camouflages a growing movement to advance the agenda of the wealthy and powerful at the expense of working families.

"The Urgent Case for a Ban on Fracking"

Obama will kill us all in his lust to promote a monied and highly corrupt Democratic Party!

PETITION: Tell the EPA$$$ Fracked Gas is NOT a Climate Solution

Love Is Love No Matter How We Love

Love is Progressive Part 25: Love is Love No Matter How We Love

True love has at least an element of unconditionality. This means accepting and loving people as they are. It also means that everyone is different, not only in who they are, but in how they love. We should all understand that and be grateful for each person's contributions and loving spirit, no matter what form it takes.
