Congress Critters Afraid Of Their Screaming Constituents

I wonder what could have caused this? (h/t Dr. Melissa Clouthier) Screaming constituents, protesters dragged out by the cops, congressmen fearful for their safety — welcome to the new town-hall-style meeting, the once-staid forum that is rapidly turning into a house of horrors for members of Congress. On the eve of the August recess, members […]

Say, How’s That Infrastructure Spending Working Out?

Apparently, it is shovel ready, but, not for the bridges that actually need repair (why does “shovel ready” bring a farm like conotation to mind?)

Clinton wasn’t out there blaming Bush 41. Reagan wasn’t blaming Carter for the recession he inherited and the Iran […]

Ireland Will Accept Two Gitmo Vacationers

This is where I am supposed to put in some sort of Irish saying, but, that would be entirely too easy and cutesy Ireland’s agreement Wednesday to take two homeless Guantanamo prisoners demonstrates that patient diplomacy between the United States and Europe is starting to play its part in shutting down the notorious U.S. prison. […]

And, how about Obama also signed a memorandum that directs the White House Office of Science and […]
