Con man headed to jail after a career of scamming church-goers.

Con artists first need to find marks: the most gullible people they can identify.  Lucky for them, there are weekly gatherings of people who not only believe a man rose from the dead and walked on water with no evidence whatsoever, they’ve dedicated their lives to that story. Thomas Kimmel, a con man, figured if [Read More…]

GOP pull their abortion bill due to lack of support from female Republicans in Congress.

The Republicans have been working on an anti-abortion bill.  I know, shock and surprise.  But this one is dishonestly named.  I know, shock and surprise: The anti-abortion bill, falsely named the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, would ban abortions after 20 weeks, and even in cases of rape, unless the mother filed a police [Read More…]

Joni Ernst hates government handouts, except the $460,000 in subsidies her family received.

The GOP’s response to Obama’s State of the Union Address was given by Joni Ernst.  To quote Jim Wright: …they picked the most hardcore nutcase they could find to read it and the most amusing part of this morning’s media summaries are those attempting to making some kind of sense from Joni Ernst’s corn-fueled Bachmannesque [Read More…]

ISIS now targeting educated women for execution.

Targeting women and the educated, two demographics routinely despised by the fundamentalists of several religions, all in one fell swoop: The group, which controls large swathes of territory in Iraq and in neighbouring war-ravaged Syria, last week published pictures of the “crucifixions” of two men accused of being bandits, and of a woman being stoned [Read More…]

Overall the SOTU Address was solid and factual. Great, but not perfect.

Ok, here’s my take on last night’s State of the Union Address. “Our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999.” This is most certainly true.  While Obama has his flaws, his policies have dug us out of the recession the Republicans created – all while being constantly opposed on principle [Read More…]
