whelp..
 
The Foundation for Moral Law has paid Roy Moore and his wife almost $1 million in the last 10 years. #roymoore   #alabama   #ssm   #gaymarriage   #marriage   #marriageequality  
In the last 10 years Roy Moore's non-profit has paid him or his family almost $1 million, but will any of that go toward paying Alabama's legal bills?

Wonder what MSFT is up to? No good I would assume..
 
Data use warning on closer inspection appears to be Microsoft Office eating data. The odd thing is I haven't opened it for months. It was only there because I hadn't got round to uninstalling so now it is gone and good riddance

well said
 
I was not alone who believe Republicans/GOP/Right Wing is a bigger threat to our nation - lives and freedom - than the 'foreign' Terrorism. We must weed out these backward thinking people from our political system. We should be a forward facing, futuristic society and not the ones which shares it ideologies with ISIS or Talibans.

From the article:

 Since Sept. 11, 2001, nearly twice as many people have been killed by white supremacists, antigovernment fanatics and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims: 48 have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim, including the recent mass killing in Charleston, S.C., compared with 26 by self-proclaimed jihadists, according to a count by New America, a Washington research center.


As I mentioned in this earlier piece, just two days before the Charlestown massacre, an op-ed appeared in the New York Times discussing the studies which showed right wing extremism is responsible for far more terrorist attacks in the years since 9/11 than Islamic extremism. It was written by a couple of academics by the names of Charles Kurzman, who teaches sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and David Schanzer, director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security at Duke University. The thrust of that piece was that law enforcement around the country is becoming more and more alarmed by the threat of right-wing extremist groups. The emphasis on Islamic terrorism is not completely misplaced, obviously, but when you look at the numbers of attacks and casualties in the last decade, you have to conclude that the greater danger to individuals comes from our homegrown terrorists.
The GOP is more than happy to rave about Islamic extremism — but refuse to acknowledge the homegrown variety

The Church of Satan already places some tribute on our Capital's grounds because we also have a nativity scene.

Love it..
 
It is stunning that in just a few decades the Republican Party has devolved from the populist days of the Eisenhower administration, to the reactionary, inhumane Tea Party of today.  

In 1956, the Republican Party boasted that under Eisenhower “the Federal minimum wage has been raised for more than 2 million workers.”  Today, the Texas Republican Party wants to “repeal the minimum wage.”

In 1956, the Republican Party promised to “extend the protection of the Federal minimum wage laws to as many more workers as is possible and practicable.”  Today, the lead Republican in the Senate on labor issues wants to abolish the minimum wage.

In 1956, the Republican Party proudly stated that under Eisenhower “Social Security has been extended to an additional 10 million workers and the benefits raised for 6 1/2 million.”  Today, the Texas Republican Party wants to abolish Social Security.

In 1956, the Republican Party platform pledged that it would work to “assure equal pay for equal work regardless of Sex.”  Last year, every Republican in the Senate voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act to assure equal pay for equal work.

President Eisenhower was right then, and Bernie Sanders is right now. These programs must not be cut, but in fact, need to be expanded so that all Americans can enjoy a dignified, secure lifestyle.
