This is a must read. 
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez is petty, vindictive, and weak on policy. Sound familiar?

She seems, according to this article, like a cold hearted cutthroat popularity-thirsty woman. She doesn't appear to know anything about policy, relying on her advisor to run things while she is a fundraising figurehead. No one seems to like her and no one, not even her own party, seems to respect her.

I hope she runs in a national campaign. Once her closet is open there's no hiding all these skeletons. Sarah Palin learned this lesson the hard way. Being a thug in a small place doesn't mean you're prepared to play with the big boys.

Science is so cool.
This week's "Cosmos" explained how plants produce clean energy...and how our inferior energy technologies produce climate change.

"Today’s decision eviscerates our Nation’s campaign finance laws, leaving a remnant incapable of dealing with the grave problems of democratic legitimacy that those laws were intended to resolve," according to the dissent.

2 part solution
A) fine, let them donate all they like. But have donations placed in escrow, overseen by a curator, each registered party must appoint their own finance chief, campaigns required to establish equity in spending with one another, surplus when the smoke clears to Dept.of Education
B) new federal USC title18, any public official, federal, state, or local, elected or appointed, misappropriating any taxpayer $, conviction requiring 20 year prison term, no parole, no plea bargains, no prosecutorial discretion.

That might just dampen the oligarchies enthusiasm.

Hobby Lobby's retirement plan had more than $73 million invested in funds with stakes in contraception makers.
When Hobby Lobby filed its case against Obamacare's contraception mandate, its retirement plan had more than $73 million invested in funds with stakes in contraception makers.

+Harry Kutner  You and others said the corporation can't make a person do anything.  Government does.  Gov't enforces the laws. (As it should be).
Taken one step further - When the gov't forces the corporation to go against their religious ideas, the government is fascist. The corporation is being given the same rights as a person now.   At least this is my understanding.

I say when the corporation changes a law, via the supreme court, via the Citizen's United decision,  to fit their religious ideas, they are in a sense making the laws or at least changing the law to fit their personal/corporate religious idea and blurring the separation of government and religion.  The corporation has now taken control of the law over the government, via Citizen's United. The corporation is making the law in one sense, usurping the legislative power of government.   That fits my definition of Corporatacracy/ Fascism.

Newsweek is one of America's most famous magazines. Why is the company that just bought it trying to hide their connections to this mysterious Christian group?
Pastor David Jang hopes that media companies will "rain down blessings" on his Christian sect.

This is literally not true.

The White House on Friday opened the way to cutting emissions of methane from the oil and gas industry, saying it would study the magnitude of leaks of the powerful greenhouse gas:

Either way and for whatever reason some one is going to pay, because someone is bitching about the job the EPA do. They put that kind of stuff in poor neighborhoods where it won't matter if the people are being affect. We don't know if it's the wells, the drugs or laws that make them criminals for being poor. Regardless the poor tax payer will contribute more money than the rich.
