PALM OIL production destroying the Planet.

Sadly, it is possible to make synthetic “palm oil” without all the environmental damage. It is just cheaper to crap on the environment.

Shellack 2: Dow hits record high as rich value each additional dollar of wealth less and less.

Anticipate cash from, amongst other things, republicans eliminating environmental regulations and corporate taxes. (pssst. P-r-i-c-e B-u-b-b-l-e)

Sotheby’s election night art auction$$$$$ sets 270 year old company record.

Pathetic Barac O’Blahblah and voters cutting off their noses to spite their faces.

O’bama is taking the wrong message from his second shellacking.

Voters are not calling on him to be more republican or to drift further to the right, even though so doing could be made to serve his personal goals$$$ and the agenda of the Democratic Party.

WHY RADICAL CONSERVATIVES ARE MORE LIKELY TO VOTE THAN RADICAL LIBERALS

WHY RADICAL CONSERVATIVES ARE MORE LIKELY TO VOTE THAN RADICAL LIBERALS

Mitch McConnell said in his victory speech, "It's time to go in a new direction. It's time to turn this country around. And I will not let you down." And the new direction he's going to take the country?........well, you don't want to know.....perhaps a corporate theocracy? A theorporatocracy?

WHY CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM WON'T REFORM

WHY CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM WON'T REFORM.

The most frightening thing I heard on Election night 2014.

I heard the following phrase (or something very close to it) used on EVERY mainstream network I watched last night, CBS, NBC, ABC and MSNBC -

"Scott Walker must now be considered as a possible candidate for the 2016 Presidential race."

Damn ... gives me chills just typing those words.

Inspection- The Problem is the Democratic Party (and the Two Party System)

Just after the election of 2012 I started saying, "Time to get engaged for 2014," especially after the Republican's autopsy when they doubled down on all they had been told was "the problem." Especially when they combined that with talking about the big win in 2014," But here's what the leaders of the Democratic Party did...
  Nothing.
  A year ago I asked, "So will they engage now?" And what they did was...
  Nothing.

Mitch McAsshole (R-KY) re-elected.

Impeachment: The Difference Between Nixon & Trump

Thom plus logo There is a very simple reason why some Republicans participated in the impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon, but none have so far broken ranks against Trump. That reason is the US Supreme Court.
