Who wrote Cotton's letter?
Don't dignify the thugs currently rampaging through the wreckage we left behind in Iraq as some kind of Islamic State.
The primary lesson from this cycle is that money spent on hideous negative ads in the last week, works. And that saturation eMail and phonebanking can actually be counter productive.
|What's in a name?
ISIS? ISIL? IS?
|Ok, California, you can breath again
If you've been waiting with baited breath for the Six Californias initiative to clear...
|Ok, I had this guy wrong.
Last week, there was some issue that came up and Russel Brand made a statement that I agreed with.
|Cleveland, city of light, city of magic
The Republican party has chosen a site for it's 2016 convention.
|Guns Vs Religion, Aussi style
Here in the US, we have several sets of fanatics focussed on different obsessions: Guns and Religions. But what happens when they collide?
|Who's with me?
Perusing the Hiddens (a dirty secret amusement I indulge from time to time) I found a suggestion that I think might make a fun group here at the GOS:
|OK, now it's official
I'm now officially poor.
So far, I haven't heard anyone dig into this: http://en.ria.ru/images/15520/63/155206369....
|GUS: I don't smoke
At what point do you transition from "I quit (am quitting) smoking" to "I don't smoke"?
You know how sometimes, when you make a plan, things you didn't expect happen? James Sensenbrenner is discovering the law of unintended consequences.
|Doesn't this just figure?
Sequestration, a terrible idea that took a meataxe to the budget, across the board cuts to every part. Cuts so severe that no one in their right minds would try to implement such a terrible plan. ...
|A slightly different approach to Single Payer
Obviously, those of us that want Single Payer did not get our pony. Not yet anyway. I believe that we have taken a step on the road to it. But it's not what I hear so many of my compatriots voicing.
You have got to see this! Many of us here have been cheering on the opening bouts of the Republican Civil War.
In answer to Alyosha Karamazov. I guess I've always been a Democrat. My parents were, so were my grand parents. But I also kept a bit of distance from the party for many years.
|Print our way out of debt?
This is more of a question than a diary.
You know how Republicans have, for decades, claimed to be all about National Security and gung ho for any and all military hardware? Somehow they shucked all that off this week.
I just read this and it really puzzles ...
About five times a day, here at the Great Orange Satan, someone yells POPCORN! I myself am guilty of this. And because I'm so suggestable, it often motivates me to (horrors) leave my keyboard for a ...
|Gunloons in Newtown update
Just a quick update on the situation in Newtown CT where a bunch of gunloons planned a gun appreciation night at Starbucks. Starbucks closed their shop early to prevent being sucked into this event. ...
|Can anyone tell me?
Today's decision by the Supremes has everyone's panties in a bunch and for good reason. On the face of it, it looks like they just rolled back the Civil Rights Era. But is that what actually happened?
|Not here for the pie
The past few days have been a meta gang war around here. I don't want to get into that.
An EF5 tornado just erased a big chunk of a small city. It will cost $2 billions plus to restore the damage. And we should, as a nation, pony up. Something like $1billion in federal aid and a bunch ...
