Paul Ryan, Poverty, and the People who are Harmed

You know it’s an election year because Republicans who are likely future Presidential candidates in two years are talking about issues which affect the working class, the poor, and minorities. In between elections we don’t hear much; the rhetoric is about government spending, war, and attacking every member of the opposing party. Paul Ryan has a plan to care for those who live in poverty; his plan will do more

Mitch McConnell’s Life is the Senate

  Mitch McConnell will do anything to get reelected. He wants to ensure that he will have a plush life without doing anything to earn it. The leader of the ‘do absolutely nothing’ 112th and 113th Congress’ wants the residents of Kentucky to give him another opportunity to continue to do nothing. His entire life revolves around his life as a Senator. In 2012 he told his party; ‘we have

ISIS Fear Mongering Aimed at Democratic Candidates

  September 11, 2001 is a date memorable for the cowardly and horrific attack on United States soil. It is also the date that Republicans recognized fear was the optimum tactic to help them get elected or reelected. They’re doing it again in 2014. Unrealistic ISIS fear mongering is being aimed at Democratic candidates. President Obama’s plan for a coalition effort against the terrorist organization includes Arab nations. And it’s

Palin? No Mas

The former half-governor of Alaska is making threats. She says she might run for political office again. She has hinted that she would run for half-senator from Alaska. Please, Palin; no mas. Let’s be honest, her ‘gotcha’ charm is no more. She is entirely unqualified to hold the job of dog catcher, nevertheless assume the office of a Senator. Sarah Palin is an embarrassment to the United States of America.

Hillary Clinton Speaks the Truth: Like it or Not

Already the criticism is pouring in. Speaking at a Democratic rally in Massachusetts the former Secretary of State made a statement claiming that big business and corporations do not create jobs. Hillary Clinton speaks the truth whether you like it or not. If big business and corporations had a perfect world they would not have a single employee. Small and medium size businesses create jobs, because they create new businesses,

    Congressional Incumbents Should Stay Home

Congressional Incumbents Should Stay Home

 Commentary by James Turnage All 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for election on November 4th. I didn’t write ‘reelection’ with a purpose in mind. Not a single one of them should be reelected; they haven’t accomplished anything in two years, why should we give them two more? I believe Congressional incumbents should simply stay home. The last Congress which accomplished anything was the 111th. The Affordable

Audio Of Brawl Reveals Sarah Palin’s Fall From Grace

Audio of the brawl in Alaska involving Sarah Palin and her brood clearly illustrates the extent of the former vice-presidential candidate’s fall from grace. The expletive laden track sounds more like an episode of Cops than the doings of a prominent politician. But the crass and ridiculous side of the Alaska fist-fight story is more interesting when viewed in light of former Governor Palin’s past. Back in 2008, she was the family-values,

    Republicans Want to Keep America at War: Why?

Republicans Want to Keep America at War: Why?

When is an individual too old to hold public office? The answer is obvious; when he or she has lost basic reasoning and common sense. Statements by Republican Arizona Senator John McCain prove once again that Republicans want to keep America at war; and we don’t understand why. If McCain and ‘Caribou Barbie’ had won the 2012 election we would have thousands of America’s finest young men and women fighting
