Does anyone know if Senators read their mail? I sent one hundred letters - one to each Senator but I'm wondering if any of them will get read.

QUOTE blogger 'Argon'

"It seems like the "conservative right wing" consistently use the pejorative "Ivory Tower thinking" when describing "progressive" or "liberal" ideas or policies but how do you describe a socio-economic system based on a couple of SCIENCE FICTION novels; Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged?

Mike Pompeo is another fossil fuel plant in the Trump administration

Tillerson and Pruit, and even Rick Perry are obviously fossil fuel plants, but so is Mike Pompeo. Your first clue should be that he's from KS, home of Koch Industries. Second, when I looked up his campaign information at www.opensecrets.org, low and behold, OIL AND GAS is his number one contributing sector. Even better, Koch Industries is his number one donor, and contributed nearly 5 times what his second highest donor did.

Thom plus logo The democratic debate, operating entirely within the context of corporate TV stars' questions and largely Republican frames, shows once again why a for-profit "news" operation shouldn't be running a presidential debate.
