Remember how the republicans have been shouting from the rooftops about voter fraud? And remember how those who fight against something the most are normally committing it themselves? Yeah, republicans are committing more voter fraud.
The big Seattle newspaper is giving away free political advertising, but only to one party. They are stating it is to prove how effective their advertising is, so they can gain more business in the future. Kind of strange, and throwing objectivity out the window. Now, to be fair, they can throw it out the window, but then they can’t go back and claim to not have a bias. Anyway, a good portion of their writers have signed on to a letter, saying the policy affects their journalistic integrity.
Ben Stein went on Fox news and told them that to fix the economy we have to tax the wealthy. Also, I had no idea he didn’t believe in evolution. Guess he isn’t as smart as I thought.
This has been floating around, a great response (from a fake CEO) about maxi pad commercials:
Marriage equality is on the ballot in four states (and I have friends in each one of those states), so here’s a reminder: instead of you know, helping the poor, as Jesus said, the Knights of Columbus spent over 15 million dollars fighting equality. Guess you didn’t really need to help the sick either:
How many live in the eight leastpopulated states? Less than 3 percent. Three percent — also known as the margin of error. (Which raises a terrifying scenario: It’s possible these states are completely empty.)
I was just talking about Stephen King yesterday, so it’s nice to see him asked to be taxed, but here is the more important quote:
I don’t want you to apologize for being rich; I want you to acknowledge that in America, we all should have to pay our fair share. That our civics classes never taught us that being American means that — sorry, kiddies — you’re on your own. That those who have received much must be obligated to pay — not to give, not to “cut a check and shut up,” in Governor Christie’s words, but to pay — in the same proportion. That’s called stepping up and not whining about it. That’s called patriotism, a word the Tea Partiers love to throw around as long as it doesn’t cost their beloved rich folks any money.
There’s a big stink about Dan Savage and his recent remarks. I have a lot of thoughts about it, although he sums it up very well. Please have a read here, it’s long, but it’s worth it. And the sad but true follow up, a study has revealed that non-religious are more compassionate that those who are religious. Guess that’s why the “Christian” Right has been able to draw up so much fake outrage and cries of being bullied when someone uses their own freedom of speech to disagree with them and point out some hypocritical facts about parts of religion.
But anyway, go read the first link, totally worth it. Have a great one, I’ll be back with more soon!
