Apparently Media Matters is trying to fight the SEIU from unionizing their employees. I can't even begin to describe how disappointing it is to see a group that claims they support workers rights to try and fight against them.
A Peoria family was met with horror this week as police knocked down their doors, seized their electronic devices and hauled them in for questioning. The reason for such a police action? Apparently one member is behind a fake Twitter account that impersonates the mayor of Peroria, Il. The charges he is facing? False personation of a public official, a Class A misdemeanor in the state.
That's what he told members of the business community at a fundraiser. That's going to be interesting with mid-terms, only 50 Congressional working days left until those mid-terms and the constant excuse of "we can't work on legislation like this with mid-terms". I would have to say Boehner was flat out lying through his teeth.
The big name 2016 GOP hopefuls apparently don't want to jump into the Cliven Bundy fiasco. The Hill has asked Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio for their opinions of the Nevada Rancher's stand off with the government and all three have refused to answer.True how can one say they stand for law and order, when this is a case of someone breaking the law and the right helping him avoid justice?
The Pasteur Institute in France has lost over 2,300 vials of the SARS virus. Thankfully the lab and independent groups have determined the missing samples to not be infectious. Well at least that's what we're hoping...
I really can't stand reality shows and truly believe they are a cancer on our society. So what a better place for one than the halls of Congress?
Portland, Oregon has decided to drain a city reservoir after a teen was caught peeing in the city's drinking supply. High efficiency toilet this is not.
A new study from Princeton and Northwestern Universities has concluded what many of us already believed, that the US is an oligarchy. Thanks to the Roberts-led Conservative Supreme Court, we can expect the data proving this to become even more solid.
This very misleading ad, which Ohio Governor John Kasich has been running the past several weeks, is very misleading. It also can't be considered a simple oversight, as Kasich also has a video out making the same claim. The problem is that donations made in 2014 couldn't be claimed on our 2013 taxes we filed yesterday, unlike the ad leads you to believe.
In a big government power move, Oklahoma Governor, Mary Fallin, has signed a bill banning cities from hiking the minimum wage or paid sick days. Apparently to the GOP, sovereignty is a bad word.
The whole Bundy ranch saga has kicked the feeble minded right wing trolls into conspiracy overload, through their prophetic leader, Alex Jones. The big claim has been that Harry Reid was behind the BLM seizure to build a solar power plant. Well as Bob Morris points out, there is a problem with that conspiracy. The Bundy ranch is 177 miles from where the proposed site is. Even the far-right Breitbart.com has gone as far as to denounce the conspiracy. Still, that hasn't stopped Matt Drudge from still pushing the meme today, linking right to Alex Jones' website. I guess Jones' followers and Fox viewers just don't have the necessary brain power to comprehend a map.
Rick Perry has joined the list of Republican Governors under legal scrutiny. Perry has retained a high profile defense attorney in a case alleging that he illegal withheld money from a local District Attorney office. A grand jury has been set to investigate claims that he abused the line item veto by withholding allocations unless the Travis County District Attorney resigned following a drunken driving convictions last year.
