Tell Us How You REALLY Feel
Author: Raine    Date: 04/16/2015 13:11:23

It's (sadly) amazing the things politics allows a person to say or not say.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is leaving office at the end of his term, and the gloves apparently are off. He gave an interview to CNBC, and had some colorful things to say…

Fact-Checking the Republican Memes
Author: BobR    Date: 2015-04-15 10:34:24

There are myriad ways that being a Republican believer means that you believe something to be absolutely true, despite evidence to the contrary (see Climate Change, Trickle-Down Economics, and The War on Christmas to name a few). Where things get dicey is in the topics that don't get a lot of discussion. In particular, lower and middle class Americans who consider themselves to be conservative have found scapegoats for their struggles, usually undeserved and tainted with stereotype. This often creates more problems. Perhaps we can do a "Snopes" on a few of these.

Good Morning.

Today is our 299th day back in Iraq.

There has been a new casualty in Afghanistan - more on that in a minute.

We find this morning's Cost of War passing through:

$ 1, 618, 598, 900, 000. 00


We'll head to nearby Whitinsville, MA. It's a small town in the middle part of the state - essentially a southern suburb of Worcester. Last Wednesday, Specialist John Dawson was killed in Afghanistan after an Afghan soldier opened fire on his US escorts while on a mission.

Good Morning.

I just checked my thermometer, and it's 56 degrees here in the Greater Boston area. Yesterday, lakes Cochituate and Quinsigamond finally iced out, although a couple of the smaller bodies of water through Sudbury still had skim ice on them in spots.

Fluffy Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 04/10/2015 13:04:37

Did you know if you google "light and fluffy" the first thing to come up is egg noodles? Then lots of baking. While I do enjoy baking that wasn't really what I was going for.

Sharia Law - Part 2
Author: BobR    Date: 2015-04-08 10:30:37

I've written before about how the Republicans rant about the Mooslims enacting Sharia Law here in the United States, and yes - it's still absurd. What makes it all so aggravating is that they are still trying to enact Christian-based laws with nary a clue to their hypocrisy.

This is even more stupid when they claim to be the party that supports the Constitution. They've even demonized John McCain for abandoning their supposedly Constitutionally-based philosophy (and coming from Ken Cuccinelli of all people). Here's a rundown of some of their unconstitutional attempts to ram their Christian values down our throats:
