Ebola Ninnies: Names Of The Members Of Congress Who Are Encouraging Panic

There has yet to be even one case of human transmission of the Ebola virus in the United States. People within the borders of the United States are already extremely safe, very well-protected from the spread of Ebola. Screening for Ebola is already taking place at ports of entry to our country, and medical teams [...]

Rear Admiral John Kirby Fails To Provide Evidence That Khorasan Threat To United States Was Real

Given the lack of a record prior to this month of news about a Khorasan terrorist group, and the extreme swerve into a bombing war that has been justified by claims of imminent Khorasan terrorism, the American people are justified in asking skeptical questions about the reality of the supposed Khorasan threat. [...]

Jody Hice Seeks To Re-Establish The Terror Of Puritanical Religious Rule Across America

First, there’s the good news: America will no longer need to wince at the speeches of Congressman Paul Broun. Broun lost the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Georgia this year, and won’t be running for re-election to the House of Representatives.

Unfortunately, this reprieve was followed by bad news: The Republican who is favored [...]

Yankee Doodle’s Unfinished Business

As members of Congress abandon their task of crafting legislative solutions to America’s problems in order to find corporate patrons to bankroll their re-elections, there is much talk about the unfinished business of the 113th Congress. The unfinished business of Congress goes much further back than just the last couple of years, however. There are [...]

Louie Gohmert Makes Sense Again!

Back in May, U.S. Representative Louie Gohmert, who is generally known as one of the most incoherent, ideologically extremist right wingers in the U.S. House of Representatives, swerved into the territory of the sane, and actually made sense when he expressed concern that the supposed reform of federal government surveillance activities contained loopholes that would [...]

If The USA Can’t Ban Guns, Why Ban Body Armor?

In spite of all the predictions by Republican activists that Barack Obama would snatch away their guns, nothing of the sort has happened. Six years into the Obama presidency, and there are still guns all over the United States, and no significant gun ban in sight. We can’t prohibit guns in the USA, because of [...]

President Obama Declares War Without Consent Of Congress

“We are at war with ISIL.”

This declaration was made at the end of last week by the top spokesman for President Barack Obama, Press Secretary Josh Earnest, and was repeated by Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.

They are powerful people, who speak for the President of the United States, but who are they to declare [...]

Thanks For This Terrible World, You Loving God, Says Chaplain Patrick Conroy

Yesterday, the House of Representatives witnessed a twisting knot of self-contradiction from Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, the government-established, First Amendment busting, Chaplain of the lower house of Congress. Chaplain Conroy prayed:

“Loving God, we give You thanks for giving us another day.”

Thanks to God, for another day. Well, that’s positive, isn’t it? God loves [...]

Nick Rahall Acts To Make It Easier For Coal Companies To Poison West Virginians

Congress Gets Back To Work-Ish

Before yesterday, the last time the U.S. House of Representatives took a roll call vote, it was the first day of August. Since then the Republican members of the House have been traveling across their districts to give loud, angry speeches about how President Barack Obama isn’t doing enough to confront the serious problems of [...]
