In chart form:
We as Americans just voted into national office a glut of far right representatives who believe we are chosen by God, are the exceptional nation and are threatened by "THEM".
It is not difficult to understand the anger and confusion over the heinous act of the Tsarnaev brothers especially in New England, especially in Boston. It is hard to find a criminal other than the surviving brother that deserves less compassion than Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Actually I’m not confused at all and neither is he. He is obviously fishing for primary voters but still …
The legislature in South Carolina just passed a law designating the Woolly Mammoth (which went extinct 50,000 years ago) as their state fossil. That is great except that one state senator in a fit of total stupid would not let the bill through without attaching a piece of religious crap to it.
Why don’t democrats just run a simple ad like this?
Stop saying income inequality
It’s income inequity. I don’t want anyone’s billion dollars. I don’t want everyone to be billionaires. I don’t want to give your money to the poor. I don’t want to give anyone’s money to the poor. If incomes were equal in this country and my math is correct (it might be correct) everyone would be making $50,000 a year. I don’t want that either. It is that the incomes are not fair; not that incomes are not equal. If your only opportunity is to work jobs that keep you poor you are being cheated by someone who is probably doing obscenely well. That’s the problem. He doesn’t owe money to the “poor” he owes money to the people who are making him rich.
Michael Dunn and the killing of young Jordan Davis
It would seem that the right wing culture, not happy with the new Pope whom they feel is too much of a hippie, have chosen their own religious standard bearer in Phil Robertson.
1) 15.9 million children lived in food insecure households in 2012.
2) 8 billion dollars cut from food stamps (making the above much worse)
a. Veterans and the elderly will be decimated as well
3) 1.3 million people (who are looking for jobs) will soon be dropped from unemployment
And my Facebook page is riddled with nothing but outrage that some millionaire, homophobic, raciest redneck might not get to drive ATVs on his reality show.
The rich get richer and the poor get poorer
It is almost dangerous to say this in public today (unless you’re ranting against the government) because people think this is some kind of communist manifesto against capitalism. They actually don’t realize that this is not philosophical or political it is simply math.
I know that this is not directly political but now days all politics is local and everything local seems to be political
