Here’s what I found – a more complete summary of what the Congressional Progressive Caucus has had to say about the unconstitutional, abusive spying programs run by the NSA… [...]
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost.

Can you imagine what a Libertarian potluck would look like? [...]
Since he appeared on the national scene in 2010, Senator Rand Paul has been a favorite of libertarians in the United States. Libertarians assert “the right to life — accordingly we support the prohibition of the initiation of physical force against others,” and also emphasize “the right to property… and the prohibition of robbery, trespass, [...]
We keep hearing that God will punish communities that allow same-sex marriage.
Well, today God had His chance. The Illinois House just voted to legalize same-sex marriage.
What mighty weather judgment did Jesus and His Dad send to Illinois in response? November temperatures in the fifties, with cloudy skies.
But just you wait! Tonight, it’s [...]
This morning, a speech by the pseudonymous Geovanni B will be read at scores of the nearly 450 protest locations of the Million Mask March.
