Congress Shows The True Face Of All Of The Above Energy

When it comes to energy, the Republican Party has developed what it thinks is a smooth tactic. Republicans saw that the “drill baby drill” motto, which reached its height during the failed presidential campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin, was too crass in its play for financial donations from Big Oil.

Hillary Clinton And GOP Presidential Candidates Ignore 400 Parts Per Million

While Bernard Sanders speaks strongly on the issue of climate change, the Republicans and Hillary Clinton pretend the issue doesn’t exist as our atmosphere reaches a global CO2 average of 400 ppm for the first time in recorded history. […]

Mike Huckabee Is Faithful To the Issue Of Marriage, Not To Marriage Itself

Today, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said, “I am absolutely faithful to the issue of marriage. Not because it’s politically expedient, but because it’s the Biblical position, the historical position and the right position. We must defend, protect and preserve traditional marriage.”

I find it odd how Huckabee says that he is faithful to the […]

Mike Huckabee Incoherent On The Environment

Today, both Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson are scheduled to announce that they are running for Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Both Fiorina and Carson have outstanding records… of disaster.

Ben Carson has been running a pre-campaign for President for a long time now, and he’s succeeded only in earning giggles and eye rolls from […]

On Mike Huckabee, Drunken Rednecks, And Fights

When Mike Huckabee says that he will keep all options on the table, that means he will keep torture on the table, keep imprisonment without criminal charge on the table, keep the bombing of areas with civilians on the table, keep the use of nuclear weapons on the table. […]

Republican Party Pays For Advertisements To Convince Right Wing Voters To Oppose Hillary Clinton

The Republican National Committee believes that it is more likely to energize its political base by opposing Hillary Clinton than by talking about the agenda of the Republican Party, or the presidential candidates who are seeking to represent it in 2016. […]

A Map of Federal Spending vs. Federal Revenue for the 50 U.S. States in Fiscal Year 2014

This morning, someone passed me a Huffington Post article declaring that GOP States Are The Most Dependent On Government. Is this true? With Huffington Post’s record (1 | 2 | 3), that’s anyone’s guess. To check the accuracy of HuffPo’s claim, let’s turn to Wikipedia…

…”Wait a minute,” you may be saying to yourself, “if […]

The Republicans’ First 100 Days Controlling Congress Slammed
