There is a murmuring in the pews. Is it possible the bishops are launching another Fortnight for Freedom -- this time to protest the assault on the lives of ordinary people by the Tea Party-led GOP?
Why should the Tea Party cooperate with the rest of Congress, if cooperating means they lose 100% of the achievements they've made?
A trouble-causing minority eventually either ceases to exist or becomes politically irrelevant -- no matter how much noise they make while in the spotlight.
I'm a life-long Democrat...and, given the current "face" of the Republican Party (Limbaugh, Palin, Trump, Bachmann, Cruz), I won't be changing parties...
Residents of the 10 American states with highest support for the Norquist Pledge have shorter life expectancies than those in the 10 states with least support for the Pledge. So it seems appropriate to ask -- is the Norquist small government philosophy bad for your health?

Everything. What most people do not realize, including GOP Congressmen, is that the U.S. national debt is the world's money, and that money is the lubricant not just for our economy, but for the entire world.

The latest offer from those I have called Banana Republicans would keep the government shut down and threaten again to default the nation and crash wo...
Are you frustrated? Tired of gridlocked government? Wish this whole shutdown thing would just end? Introducing: "Liberty," the traditional word utilized by conservatives that can mean whatever you want it to!
