judge overrules repugs bid to take away people's rights

Judge voids controversial Wisconsin union law
What is it about repugs that makes them want to take away people's rights while Dems fight for people's rights?
Any why would anyone (other than the ultra-wealthy) ever vote for a repug?

Obama continues to piss off his base

Obama, in Europe, signs Patriot Act extension
It is just me or does Obama get more & more conservative with every passing day? I mean, I know he was a centrist when he was elected, but in any other time in our history, he would be considered a conservative republican.

Will this country ever get an actual liberal in any position of power?

must be nice - too bad the rest of us can't have this

wow, that's ballsy

insanely short-sighted

GOP Congressman Pays For Emergency Disaster Relief With Cuts To Clean Cars Program
(Think Progress)
Taking money from a program that will help mitigate climate change in order to pay for the consequences or climate change? Does this make sense to anyone?

Really - are the repugs literally trying to destroy our country (and the world) instead of just figuratively?

sick bastard

Rick Perry Signs Controversial Bill Requiring Women To Get Sonogram 24 Hours Before An Abortion
(Think Progress)
How long is this war on women going to continue? What happened to progress? How does this country continue to regress instead or move forward?

what happens when you say you will take away Medicare

not to mention the number of lives that have been destroyed

The cost of bin Laden: $3 trillion over 15 years

The most expensive public enemy in American history died Sunday from two bullets.

As we mark Osama bin Laden's death, what's striking is how much he cost our nation—and how little we've gained from our fight against him. By conservative estimates, bin Laden cost the United States at least $3 trillion over the past 15 years, counting the disruptions he wrought on the domestic economy, the wars and heightened security triggered by the terrorist attacks he engineered, and the direct efforts to hunt him down.

What do we have to show for that tab? Two wars that continue to occupy 150,000 troops and tie up a quarter of our defense budget; a bloated homeland-security apparatus that has at times pushed the bounds of civil liberty; soaring oil prices partially attributable to the global war on bin Laden's terrorist network; and a chunk of our mounting national debt, which threatens to hobble the economy unless lawmakers compromise on an unprecedented deficit-reduction deal.


I've said for years and years that bin Laden succeeded beyond his wildest dreams due to bush's idiotic responses to the attacks. There is no way that bin Laden could have imagined that he could nearly destroy everything that America stands for by one coordinated attack. It will assuredly take us decades to recover - as long as the repugs let us.

can't say I blame him

Bush declines Obama invitation to ground zero
If I were bush, I wouldn't want to appear on the site of my biggest failure to celebrate my successor's biggest success, which just happened to be something that I claimed to want to do, but also failed miserably at.

what a petty little gnat

Palin Thanks Bush For Bin Laden Raid, Doesn’t Mention Obama Once
(Think Progress)
Would it kill her to - just once - not be a divisive little witch and give credit where credit is due?

Obama did in 2 years what bush couldn't in 8 years

Osama Bin Laden Is Dead
(Think Progress)
Not that this changes a lot in our never-ending "war on terror", but at least Obama cared about bringing this man to justice, unlike George "I really just don't spend that much time on him" Bush.

Just realized that this was on the 8 year anniversary of "Mission Accomplished". Ironic much?
