John Avlon Represents The Financial Fringe With No Labels

It’s true that No Labels and John Avlon are opposed to the political fringe – but they don’t care to talk explicitly about who is in the political fringe that they detest. What they call the “political fringe” is none other than the 99 percent of Americans who have to work for their money, rather than resting in the comfort of plush inheritances and immense investment portfolios.

The Senate Democrats are occupying a centrist position, not a position that’s to the left of American opinion. […]

On WV Mountaintop Removal in 2010, there’s still a Choice

If you live in West Virginia, you’ll be voting for a new U.S. Senator this fall.

Republican Party candidate John Raese supports mountaintop removal, the mining process that buries mountain streams in toxic debris and leaves mountains looking like barren moonscapes.
