    Are Democrats about to trade the War on Women for the War on Gays?

    Or is it a trade by social conservatives of the lost cause of a war on equal marriage to a last stand for a public right to refuse public accommodation? Man the lunch counters, baby!!

    Does the Republican Party make America look bad?

    It's not just the Republican leadership and conservative commentators that are the butt of ridicule the world round; it's the Republican audiences at these recent political debates, cheering for state executions, calling out to let ill people die if they don't have health insurance, jeering at a...

    How can you justify voting for Obama a second time?

    Personally, I think third parties are for people who don't want to be responsible for the election outcome. Far from being the being the lesser of two evils, I believe Obama will be recognized as one of the most significant presidents of the twenty-first century, indeed in all of American...

    Republicans block Obama jobs bill

    Once again conservatives in Congress demonstrate that they are a greater threat to the well being of the nation that bin Laden ever was.

    Morgan Freeman calls Tea Party racist

    So the stimulus program did work but not enough to prevent unemployment from going up after the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. Well, thanks for that. And, more stimulus is clearly needed. What folks who resist additional stimulus don't get is that the real cost to this...

    Morgan Freeman calls Tea Party racist

    You said, "There is no reasoned arguement [sic] for putting the country further in debt," and, I demonstrated that there is, in fact, a widely respected opinion in economic circles that further stimulus funded by government borrowing is indeed called for. You may disagree with that reasoning...

    Morgan Freeman calls Tea Party racist

    Nonsense, stimulating the economy using government borrowing in the short term is essential to addressing the long term national debt. This is Economics 101.

    Morgan Freeman calls Tea Party racist

    Morgan Freeman is entitled to his opinion. Other very well informed people, too, have reached that same conclusion; he's not alone. I think it's more complex than simple racism though. Personally, the Tea Party people are primarily reactionaries. They are fundamentally white, upper middle class...

    Republican Party of Death

    The thread really isn't about the death penalty; it's about the Republican debate audiences clearly relishing it, cheering the killing of 234 people by the state; affirming that the state should, "Let 'em die" if an uninsured person should ever need intensive care; booing a governor acting to...

    Republican Party of Death

    Another example of the Republican Party's dance with death is their intention to repeal and not replace the affordable health care act which is already saving lives. Below the most pure and delusional example, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is asked what society should do if someone doesn't have...

    Republican Party of Death

    What is particularly bewildering about the Republican Party's embrace of capital punishment is that they claim the government is incompetent in everything else but judging whether someone should be put to death; in this, they wholeheartedly endorse government intervention. Go figure!

    Republican Party of Death

    Claiming the Democrats do it too doesn't address the question about explaining the Republican cult of death. It's just a distraction.

    Republican Party of Death

    Michele Bachmann suggested that the HPV vaccine was dangerous. It is not. But because of her comments it is certain that some young women will not be immunized and will face a death by cervical cancer. To me, that's another example of Republican's embrace of death; really a flaunting of death...

    Republican Party of Death

    WILLIAMS: Governor Perry, a question about Texas. Your state has executed 234 death row inmates, more than any other governor in modern times. Have you... (APPLAUSE) ... What do you make of that dynamic that just happened here, the mention of the execution of 234 people drew applause? —...

    Troy Davis execution: Georgia pardons board denies plea for clemency

    “That it is better 100 guilty Persons should escape than that one innocent Person should suffer, is a Maxim that has been long and generally approved.” — Benjamin Franklin It is wrong that there is no doubt in this case. There's tons of doubt.

    Obama: Something is wrong with country's politics

    The 112th United States Congress will be remembered as the least productive session ever, worse than the 80th Congress, a.k.a., the "Do Nothing Congress." Standard & Poor's downgraded their rating of U.S. Treasuries based on this performance. The contrast with the 111th Congress which passed...

    xBox 360 or PS3

    Sony is a consumer electronics manufacturer with decades of experience. Microsoft is first and foremost a software vendor. The respective consoles reflect their origins. The PS3 is a beautifully crafted, elegant consumer electronics device. The XBox360 is a bit clunkier, noisier and likelier...

    Will the U.S. default on its debt?

    I oppose significantly increasing presidential power to prioritize government spending. The Constitution says that's Congress' job. It's called a budget. I say that without further Congressional guidance the treasury should pay its obligations, first come, first served. Bond holders, Social...

    Will the U.S. default on its debt?

    I agree! This is just the beginning of our crash. We were dumb enough to elect the Tea Party to a minority of the majority party seats, and now we must deal with the consequences. The country will be in ruins, by the end of their second term. Civil war might even break out. Seriously...............
