Supreme Court and the Text Message

It seems fairly mundane to most people under 50, BUT for the Supreme Court, the difference between a text message and a pager was lost. While not recounting all the details, (go to HuffPost), I am a little afraid of the age and income gap of the people who are supposed to represent us - and decide on issues of national importance. Is there anything more out of touch? Maybe it's just the growing technology gap - what's the interwebs? twitter? Does anyone really care?

Tea (Bag) Party Tax Day Protest/Rally Memories

“Don’t white folks get stranger, every day?” I muttered to a gentleman of color, while on the sidewalk, across from the Statehouse grounds, where the Tea (Bag) Partiers were gearing up for their Tax Day “rally”/protest, last week. After he stopped laughing, he said, “Yeah that they do!”

When you are young and male you tend to love to gross out your friends.

Legislation for "Fast Foods"

I believe vendors should be required to serve and price foods prepared for immediate consumption by the serving and they should not be allowed to package items by more than double a single serving unless they are identified as "Group Size".

If an 8 oz. drink is considered one serving. Vendors must serve 8 oz drinks. If a vendor charges $.50 for an 8 oz drink then they must charge $1 for 16 oz. No more super size for pennies more. No more 32 oz drinks.

3 oz. of meat is a serving. A 16 oz steak must be identified as "Group Size".

Fair Trade, NOT Free Trade!

What a republican believes

Thom, Please generate a transcript of your list of what a republican believes/how it votes.

What a great synthesis of recent history and republican "make me crazy" contradictions.

Thanks for your clarity!

Confusion within all the BIG ISSUES

Scary our tendency to just look at the "surface" and get caught up in "petty" arguments. This tendency alone is where we fail to produce real change, because the masses get all stirred up and emotional and confused. CRAZY. What the heck EVER happened to common sence??

Mfg vs Svc economy

It doesn't matter if the USA is increasingly a service economy. From labor's perspective, all that matters is that what little labor that has yet to be taken over by robots and computers is equitably shared by all who would prefer participation in the economy to degrading handouts or charity. Full participation is what counts, not the kind of labor. -KE

What if...?

What if after all is said and done, the majority of the American people really are as they seem to be as represented by the Republicans. What if we liberals are in fact only pretending that we represent the voting majority, and the ideals we have loved, lived and fought for have in fact died in this country.

Supreme Court

8 to 1 to defend the free speech right of a sick F#@& to sell videos of people killing and maiming small animals? Will someone PLEASE tell me what I can do about this RIDICULOUS ruling? If we don't speak for the animals who will?

Carrie Lucas

Clearly she has done any research on her own. Ice core samples do not lie... Time to wake up and smell the coffee. Caffinated!

Dear Thom: I don't understand why the "khristan" right can't understand God wants Obama to be president. How could it be otherwise?
