This has gotten seriously crazy. Former Democratic Congressional candidate Ray Lutz brought a table down to Freedom Plaza/Civic Center Plaza, home of Occupy San Diego, to do voter registration. He even printed out a Supreme Court ruling, just in case he had to show something to the police to prove he had the right to […]

How wrong is Newt Gingrich about energy? In last week’s Republican debate #1,237, he called for a national energy program on the scale of World War II that would boost our energy output, driving down the price of gasoline and saving our economy. There’s just one problem: The actual experts on energy, from the The Oil […]
One of the unified themes that has emerged from the very disunified Occupy Wall Street movement: Preventing corporate cash from buying elections (and politicians). Now, Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL) has introduced a Constitutional Amendment to do just that. Un-officially called the Outlawing Corporate Cash Undermining the Public Interest in our Elections and Democracy (OCCUPIED) Amendment, it would […]
One thing is clear this election season – a lot of Republicans don’t want Mitt Romney to be their nominee. The other thing that is clear – they don’t really have anyplace else to go. The anti-Mitt mantle has been passed to Michelle Bachman, Rick Perry, Herman Caine… and as each has melted down, rather […]

By James Howard Kunstler (Originally appeared at Clusterfuck Nation) Portents of winter and the toothless chatter of flag-draped traitors vies with a fog of lies spread by Koch Brother messenger boys, Reagan nostalgia hucksters, suck-ups in office, Murdoch empire servlings, Banker PR catamites, and Jesus terrorists to occupy the national mind-space with a narcotic Jell-O […]
Dr. Jill Stein, the recent Green-Rainbow Party candidate for Governor of Massachusetts, will announce her candidacy for President of the United States on Monday October 24 on the steps of the State House in Boston at 12:30 PM. A key focus on Stein’s campaign will be a Green New Deal to end unemployment in America and […]
Mitt Romney, the uneasy frontrunner in the Republican Presidential race, has a problem. He used to be a sane conservative who cared about people and the planet. And no matter how much he tries to act like a raving loony today, his past actions continue to bite him in the ass.
After months of campaigning, fundraising, touring the country and shooting her mouth off, Tea Party darling Sarah Palin has finally made her decision. It’s all been a lot of fun, and very lucrative, but she will NOT be a candidate for President in 2012.
I’m not sure which is worse: How little Rick Perry knows about science, or how little he seems to care.
During the debate tonight for the 2012 Republican Presidential candidates, he stood out as particularly ignorant and mean-spirited in a field of ignorant Scrooges.
Mitt Romney had been one of the few sane GOP Presidential candidates on the subject of climate change. In fact, only one other – ex-Utah Governor John Huntsman – acknowledged climate change was real and human-caused.
Not any more.
