Leave No Defense Contractor Behind

Congress Returns to Cut Safety Net Spending to Save Defense Contractors | FDL News Desk.

” “Pro-family” legislators have promoted the child tax credit for years as a way to encourage traditional marriage. But defense contractors need their blow-shit-up money, so that’s done, surely with some rejoinder that poor people are having babies for the tax credit (because babies cost no money to raise these days).”

Go Pound Tar-Sand…

 

Randy Thompson Nebraska – Oil Not Guaranteed: The XL Pipeline’s Accidental Activist – Esquire.

“Once, while waiting to testify in Washington, he fell into conversation with a Native American man from South Dakota, where the various tribes have been resisting attempts by TransCanada to drive their trucks, and run their pipeline, through reservation land. “It was kind of ironic,” Randy says. “We were talking and this Indian gentleman said, ‘Well, now you know what it’s been like for us for 150 years.’ And, you know what? He was right, too.””

The More Things Change…

“The Same War-Always Mentality” – The Dish | By Andrew Sullivan – The Daily Beast.

Last Chance To Dance?

Obama Campaign 2012 – The Argument Is Over. The Campaign Is Here. Lets Go. – Esquire.

“…But there is an educational component to the presidency, too, and part of that component is to remind the people that extended tantrums are not self-government, that electing the unqualified and the half-bright simply because they say the things that you also hear on your radio for 12 hours a day is not a recipe for moving the country forward. The partnership in government didn’t “break down.” The Republicans broke it and then walked away from the splinters. Period. There was nowhere near enough of that kind of talk over the past three years.”

Hear hear.
