Illustrating what's wrong with the Right.
I used to watch Glenn Beck’s cable show because it was, to me anyway, a form of performance art.
A week ago Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia gave the Rose Lecture at the University of Tennessee College of Law.
After he finished his prepared remarks, he took some questions.
One of the students asked if the government’s collecting income tax was constitutional, and Justice Scalia responded that it was.
Recently I was joking with some friends about the two latest things for which President Obama is being held responsible.
With a little imagination, any voter, not just the ones with the big bucks with which to buy politicians and elections, can find a way to be part of the democratic process.
Elections are not just for those with the money.
Don't let anyone tell you the system has become rigged in favor of the 2% and corporations.
You are people too.
A review of filings with the Internal Revenue Service and Federal Election Commission has found that conservative political groups began spending nearly $22 million to pay for involved advertising relationships with such talk show hosts as Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh between 2008 and the end of 2012, and since then have increased those payments.
I have one question for all those on the Right that have supported Mr. Bundy.
The main claim that has garnered support is that the Federal Government (who had owned the land because of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo at the end of the Mexican-American War long before Nevada became a state) has no right to take over land and make it public, thereby restricting its use.
Fox News has a new Affordable Care Act horror story.
They needed one because, so far, the stories they have presented have, for the most part, proven to be a little faulty when it came to facts and accuracy.
Cliven Bundy's family claims that because his family arrived in Nevada in the 1880's they have an ancestral claim to the land he is grazing on for free, and, therefore should be allowed to use it even though it belongs to all Americans, not just his family.
No one should say he should not be there, nor should anyone presume to decide who can use the land.
Going back to Saint Ronald (let’s just ignore the many bad thing he did that messed up the country from raising taxes to Iran-Contra) Reagan, the law on the books requires any hospital receiving federal funds must treat anyone who comes into the Emergency Room whether or not they have insurance or the money to pay for treatment.
