My Two Cents on the Trayvon Martin Case: The law that legalizes murder.

Share

(EDITOR’S NOTE: See my analysis of the “enhanced Zimmerman arrest video” here.) One month ago (February 27th), a Florida man named George Zimmerman called 911 for the 47th time in 58 days to report “a suspicious character” inside the gated community where he lived. That “suspicious character” was the 17 year old Trayvon Martin, who had gone out that night […]

The Truth About the Keystone XL Pipeline: Few jobs, higher gas prices, eco disaster (updated)

Share

Frequent readers of M.R.S. already know how I feel about the proposed “Keystone XL pipeline” and the absurd level of hyperbole from Conservatives regarding the supposed windfall of jobs it would produce along with its ability to bring down gas prices, while downplaying the environmental consequences. With the deep pockets of BigOil and oil tycoons […]

So much stupid (part 2). The Kingmakers, Global Warming denied and the key is not Keystone

Share

Continuing from Monday, there was plenty of stupidity to report last week. A man that had no business even being in Afghanistan was overextended to the point tragedy. And there was the stupidity of a Media that inflicts John McCain upon us for yet one more Sunday show appearance to critique the man he lost to. Do […]

Obama On Track to Surpass Reagan’s Jobs Record

Share

Two years ago, I posted the job-creation stats for every president since Jimmy Carter, making the point that Democrats have been FAR better for the economy than Republicans. Despite being repeatedly vilified by the Right as “an abject failure”, Jimmy Carter actually created MORE jobs annually (2.6million) than Ronald Reagan (2.0million) (second only to Bill Clinton – 2.9million). Reagan […]

It Couldn’t Be More Clear: GOP running against fictional president with fictional record

Share

Super Tuesday is now history, and the Republican presidential candidates have all given their “victory” speeches (not Ron Paul, who won no states). And it is clear from listening to them that each one of them absatively-posalutely believes they will be running in November against some fictional “un-American” president with a record that bears no resemblance […]

Where Have All the Republicans Gone?

Share

[PopUpFad=GROUP=widget:RANDOM=NO:SESSION=NO] I first noticed it right after the 2006 Mid-term election when Republicans lost control of both the House & The Senate after near unbroken control by the GOP since Newt Gingrich’s infamous “Republican Revolution” in 1994. Suddenly, no one (that I *personally* came in contact with) was willing to admit to being a “Republican”. It’s like they vanished from […]
