The American Taliban

Just watch it. Please. Devote six minutes and eleven seconds to the best description of what has happened to the Republican Party I sincerely think you will ever, ever hear.

Yup.

I may have posted this before.

It bears repeating.

Excellent point

I wonder if Romney is EVER going to release those returns.

Very interesting speculation

I had never heard of Stericycle before. I'm glad I know about it now.

Pretty good, people; pretty good

I'm really sick of Republican obstructionists having the gall to blame Obama for not getting enough done.

Imprint this one on your memory

I wish someone could help me comprehend why this is so hard for some folks to understand.

The last fiscal conservative

This really points out some serious reality!

The data on gun control laws and gun violence

None of this is hugely surprising but it's really worth watching if only to reference the facts when people bring up the Norway shooting.

Are we ready for this, ladies and gentlemen?

Because, if the Romney/Ryan ticket is elected, this is what's coming.


Excellent point

This man is so very insightful.

Romney's running mate

I just got the following email: 

The news just broke. Mitt Romney chose Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate.

A President Romney would be devastating for women and families, so it's no surprise he'd pick Paul Ryan. Ryan rammed his radical budget plan to decimate vital programs for seniors through Congress -- and did it on the backs of the women and families, like our grandmothers, who need these programs the most. And that's just the beginning.

Click here to see five of the worst things you need to know about Paul Ryan's record.

Paul Ryan has a vision of turning the clock back decades for women, from dismantling Medicare and Social Security to denying coverage of birth control and cancer screenings for women across the nation. 

We have a stark choice this year. We can either make 2012 an historic year for women, or we can let the Romney/Ryan ticket wage its very own War on Women from the White House. 

The fight ahead is clear: if we want to re-elect President Obama and elect the women who can hold Romney, Ryan, and the rest of the far right accountable, we need you with us. I know that there's no stronger barricade in the War on Women than the EMILY's List community, and together, we will win. 

Thank you for everything you do. 

Take care,

Ha!

Well, this is a good point.


What is a fact?

This is a wonderfully articulated definition:

"In science, 'fact' can only mean 'confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.' I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms." 

-- Stephen Jay Gould

Another thought to ponder

I've been thinking about this lately, as it happens. It's a sobering thought.
