Rush Limbaugh’s Hatred of Women

Via: In a 1993 television broadcast, Limbaugh put on screen a picture of Socks the White House cat. He asked, “Did you know there’s a White House dog?” He then put up a picture of 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton. Limbaugh said in 1994 that first lady Hillary Clinton had a “testicle lockbox” at the White House and represented “the worst characteristics of women, totally controlling, not soft and cuddly, not sympathetic, not patient. Demanding, domineering Nurse Ratched kind of thing.” Limbaugh has long referred to the National Organization for Women as the National Alliance of [ ... ]

The Trayvon Martin Murder Wasn’t the Worst Crime Here

The shooting was bad enough. Yet somehow the police have managed to turn a senseless, tragic murder into a far worse crime: They’ve declared open-season to SLAUGHTER black children. Are we surprised? No. While it’s true police have a tough job, not all police do that job for the right reasons. Some are thugs, bullies, cowards, veritable criminals w/badges. We are NEVER safe, civil rights are NEVER secure, we are ALWAYS one stupid crime, one stupid law, one stupid police officer away from being at SQUARE-ONE. Arrest the SOB that murdered this harmless child.

Why We Fight For Progressive Media

I have a theory as to why Progressive media may not appeal to some people: They think we don’t need it. America is wide-open, free, diverse, the golden land of opportunity! Why all the bother over (fill-in-the-blank). Well, it is precisely BECAUSE issues of rights, freedom, safety, justice, equality, and opportunity have been FOUGHT FOR tooth-and-nail, that some may think our fuss over, for instance, the WAR ON WOMEN is too much. It is NOT too much. It is NOT ENOUGH. It will NEVER BE ENOUGH. Ignorance is hiding in the slimy underbelly of politics, just waiting for the right cesspool [ ... ]

The Corporate Tax Rate Myth Myth

This is my comment regarding a video of Warren Buffet, speaking on the subject of corporate taxes. See the video here: http://thepoliticalcarnival.net/2012/02/27/video-it-is-a-myth-that-american-corporations-are-paying-35-percent-or-anything-like-it/ , on www.thepoliticalcarnival.net. It took me and my lightly-fried brain about 1-1/2 hours to write this comment, I hope to hell it makes sense… Okay, we’re a little scattered here. It is NOT a myth that the corporate tax rate is 35%; IT IS. What seems to be implied here by Buffet is that this rate doesn’t matter, because corporation actually pay a lower EFFECTIVE rate. It DOES matter! It is the percentage applied to TAXABLE INCOME [ ... ]

My Appeal to President Obama Re NDAA

VETO the NDAA, until it definitively & expressly PROHIBITS treatment of US citizens as “enemy combatants”, unless they are proved as such in OPEN COURT. Also, the NDAA must expressly reaffirm our Constitution as the FINAL WORD on these matters, until & unless a court says a person may be treated otherwise, and then ONLY on a case-by-case basis. There is NOTHING worse than taking away our citizen’s RIGHTS, without due process, in the name of “security”. If you do THAT, America as we know it ceases to exist, and then what is really left worth securing? Thank you. PS, CLOSE GITMO.

The Latest From Senator Stabenow Re NDAA (S1867)

December 13, 2011 Thank you for contacting me about detainee provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act. I share your support for protecting civil liberties, which is why I believe the government’s detainee policy should be codified in law.   I strongly believe that the President needs the power to keep Americans safe and that power should be used carefully and in accordance with the Constitution. Currently, the detainee policy is cobbled together from Presidential directives and Supreme Court cases. The policy has been developed ad-hoc since 2001, and is subject to change at the whim of a President. The National Defense Authorization [ ... ]
