    Washington Post ^ | September 20, 2013 | AP
    WICHITA, Kan. — A University of Kansas journalism professor was placed on indefinite administrative leave Friday for a tweet he wrote about the Navy Yard shootings which said, “blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters.” David W. Guth, an associate professor of journalism, made the comment on Twitter after Monday’s shootings in Washington, D.C., in which 13 people died, including the gunman. The tweet didn’t attract much attention until Campus Reform.org posted a story Thursday, sparking a social media backlash that’s spilled over into some state lawmakers calling for his...

    April 24, 2012. Des Moines. Two networks yesterday, CNBC and MSNBC, broadcast a little known fact – Ron Paul appears to be winning the Republican nomination for President. When the popular Texas Congressman repeatedly assured supporters that the race was about delegates, not beauty contests, he apparently knew what he was talking about. Now, after three more states locked in delegates to the GOP nominating convention – CO, MN and IA – indicators point to a brokered convention with a possible, even probable, Ron Paul victory.

    I’ve ragged about Solyndra before. There’s weird stuff going on with this company who even after obtaining a $535 million government loan guarantee and venture capital funds has suffered the inability to go public. They had to lay off employees and shut down one facility immediately after California’s Prop 25 initiative failed (the one that would have neutered California’s global warming law AB32). They’re now being investigated by Congress (House Energy and Commerce Committee) and their CEO recently bailed out. All in all it doesn’t appear to be a pretty picture for Solyndra, California, or their green jobs poster boy...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — News flash: Congressional Republicans want to raise your taxes. Impossible, right? GOP lawmakers are so virulently anti-tax, surely they will fight to prevent a payroll tax increase on virtually every wage-earner starting Jan. 1, right? Apparently not. Many of the same Republicans who fought hammer-and-tong to keep the George W. Bush-era income tax cuts from expiring on schedule are now saying a different "temporary" tax cut should end as planned. By their own definition, that amounts to a tax increase.

    The most distressing outcome of the deficit hysteria gripping Washington may be what Barack Obama has revealed about himself. It was disconcerting to watch the president slip-slide so easily into voicing the fallacious economic arguments of the right. It was shocking when he betrayed core principles of the Democratic Party, portraying himself as high-minded and brave because he defied his loyal constituents. Supporters may hope this rightward shift was only a matter of political tactics, but I think Obama has at last revealed his sincere convictions. If he wins a second term, he will be free to strike a truly...

    As a conservative Democrat with a segregationist background, US Senator Robert Byrd had spent half a century in Congress and was its oldest member when, on 12 February 2003, he was hailed as the nation's lonely voice of conscience after a historic speech. On the senate floor, Byrd, who has died aged 92, lambasted his "paralysed" colleagues for their craven submission to preparations for what he branded an illegal war in Iraq. They listened silently as he told them: "As this nation stands at the brink of battle, every American on some level must be contemplating the horrors of war....

    The left-leaning big apple laid off another eighteen "newsroom" employees this week. This is part of 100 "newsroom" jobs which the newspaper targeted for cuts in 2009. This is the second straight year that the ailing newspaper has made the decision to layoff 100 newsroom jobs. With a sharp thirty percent fall in ad revenue in the first three quarters of this year, accounting for around $231 million, these jobs cuts have become a necessary evil. (snip) Daniel Okrent, former public editor of the NYC, recently revealed huge amounts of liberal bias at the ailing paper: "When I was at...

    The Nation ^ | Katrina vanden Heuvel
    Labor Day this year comes draped in mourning. More than half of all workers have experienced a spell of unemployment, taken a cut in pay or hours, been forced to go part-time or seen other such problems during and after the Great Recession. Collapsing stock and house prices have destroyed a fifth of the wealth of the average household. Nearly six in ten Americans have canceled or cut back on holidays. Amidst all this, workers increasingly don't even have labor unions as a potential answer to their insecurities—despite the fact that, of all the institutions in America, they more often...

    spot..us ^ | Osha Davidson
    When politicians advocate "getting tough" on illegal immigration from Mexico, they nearly always argue that people should "come here the right way," by applying for a visa. It sounds fair. What no one ever mentions, however, is that doing it the "right way" can get you killed. That's because the only U.S. Consulate in Mexico that issues immigration visas is in Ciudad Juarez, where thousands of innocent people have been gunned down in battles between drug cartels and Mexican authorities, leading some to call Juarez the world's "murder capitol." The Consulate itself has been targeted and workers there have been...

    Barack Obama and the Democrats he led to a stunning victory two years ago are going down hard in the face of an economic crisis that he did nothing to create but which he has failed to solve. That is somewhat unfair because the basic blame belongs to his predecessors, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, who let the bulls of Wall Street run wild in the streets where ordinary folks lived. And there was universal Republican support in Congress for the radical deregulation of the financial industry that produced this debacle.

    So a black man finally wins the presidency, only to discover that it's about as useful as a 32 cent stamp. According to Eric Alterman, the federal government, avatar of liberal hope for at least a century, has become hopelessly undemocratic, poisoned by corruption and structurally snarled by partisan divisions. Poor Barack Obama, who steps up to the plate and gets handed a foam bat! The government, as Alterman convincingly describes it, is not only expensive, "bloated" and all the rest. It has become a handmaid to corporate power—a hiring hall from which compliant officials are selected for vastly more...

    Medical care in the United States is derided as miserable compared to health care systems in the rest of the developed world. Economists, government officials, insurers, and academics beat the drum for a far larger government role in health care. Much of the public assumes that their arguments are sound because the calls for change are so ubiquitous and the topic so complex. Before we turn to government as the solution, however, we should consider some unheralded facts about America’s health care system.

Michelle called partial-birth abortion "a legitimate medical procedure," and wouldn't supporters please pay $150 to attend a luncheon for her husband, who would fight against "cynical ploy[s]" to stop it?

  • A Comprehensive View of Hillary Rodham Clinton

    Calling it a tour-de-force would be an understatement. There she was, the First Lady of the United States with the media and the entire Congressional leadership eating out of her hand. Flanked by Senators George Mitchell and Ted Kennedy in the Senate's Lyndon B. Johnson Conference Room, Hillary stood there as the only First Lady in history to confer with Congress on a crucial domestic policy issue. Only a week before on January 25, 1993, the new President announced that his wife would lead a task force to overhaul the nation's health care system.
