Koch Bros’ Leukemia Patient saves $1000 with Obamacare

Debunking the KochsIn the continued battle against Republican and Koch Brothers’ blitz of health care reform misinformation, Julia Boonstra (the woman who has become conservatives’ poster child for victims of Obamacare) is once again the victim of a group of vicious attackers, more popularly known as… factcheckers.

Watch GOP contradict itself on CBO Report, Job-Lock & Obamacare [Video]

Mitch McConnell Hostage to FactsI just cannot keep myself from stepping once again into the wading pool of American politics any longer, at least not when it comes to this renewed tirade of Obamacare misinformation.

On Wednesday we bore witness to the release of the CBO’s report on the economy which included an appendix on the effect the Affordable Care Act is predicted to have on the economy. Unsurprisingly, ACA opponents fell all over themselves to report that the CBO had vindicated their “Obamacare is a Job Killer” talking points. However, it takes a bit more than copy and pasting

42 Things you probably didn’t know about Douglas Adams (video)

laughing-HitchhikersGuideDouglas Adams, the author of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series of books into which so many of us have found humorous escape, would have turned 61 this past Monday. In remembrance of his birthday and in honor of the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything, here are 42 facts about the man who brought us – for better or worse – Vogon poetry and who taught us about the “immense psychological value” of one’s towel.

What are Republicans’ Priorities Now?

In 2010, the Republicans’ leader in the U.S. Senate, Mitch McConnell, stated publicly that the party’s number one priority would be to deny President Obama a second term. This decision was made during a quiet, behind closed doors meeting of GOP luminaries both past and present on inaugural eve 2009. They determined it was better to pursue a strategy of obstructionism meant to halt any Democratic legislation rather than taking action to the address the economic calamity the country, and the world, was facing at that time.

Daily Scoop: What did Piers Morgan – Alex Jones Interview Accomplish?

Piers-Morgan laughingWhat did the interview, or more accurately the everything anti-government rant, with Alex Jones actually accomplish? Many of us have watched the video and witnessed the bizarre logic used by the, now infamous, gun rights advocate, blogger and radio host to justify current gun rights laws and what will happen if those guns are taken away. But what was the reasoning behind Mr. Morgan’s offer of a national stage interview with what many would consider a radical, anti-government conspiracy theorist? Well perhaps within the question lies the answer. Was this simply a way to provide one of the prominent faces of the far-right, gun rights advocacy with enough rope to hang himself, along with a sizable portion of the anti-gun control crowd itself?

An article in today’s Christian Science Monitor seems to agree with that assessment. Did it do any good? Maybe if Mr. Morgan steps back, stops baiting the crazy and lets the noose tighten on its own.

Something else that’s come out of NRA CEO LaPierre’s Mouth

Wayne LaPierreAfter defending his organization’s “logical” stance to arm elementary schools to prevent mass shooting tragedies on Meet the Press this morning, it seemed appropriate to revisit what else has leapt from Wayne LaPierre’s mouth highlighting his “logical”, and sane, state of mind.

Obama’s Gun Control Conspiracy [Repost]

While great for a laugh, this excerpt from the Colbert Report illustrates how the political rumor mill stretches and contorts real world actions into messages that create fears in the general public that don’t actually exist.

Gun Control: Where do our priorities lie? [Repost]

Once again the nation faces yet another mass shooting incident, this time leaving 20 elementary school children dead in small town Connecticut. This tragic even marks the 18th mass shooting this year alone resulting in the deaths of 99 people and the injury of 92 others. This, of course, only accounts for the nationally reported events, not the multitude of other shooting deaths that occur daily in our own cities and towns.

In the wake of such disturbing events as these we must ask ourselves, “When will be okay to talk about gun control?” When will the taboo of this issue be broken? So few have the conviction and courage to speak out, to say what needs to be said instead of sinking into the sidelines afraid of the controversy. Bob Costas should be applauded for his remarks after the Kansas City Chiefs murder-suicide. Instead he was lambasted for daring to speak of control.

Daily Scoop: Romney’s “Free Government Money 101″ [video]

In what could become Mitt Romney’s J.D. Hayworth moment this ABC News video utterly contradicts the Republican presidential candidates calls to severely cut government spending. As with J.D. Hayworth – John McCain’s Tea Party challenger in 2010 who was caught in “Free Government Money” informercial which contributed to his election loss – this video may be the metaphorical topper to the ex-governor’s campaign of flip-flopping. Depending on the coverage it receives, Mitt may have essentially shot himself in the foot.

Feel free to reblog, retweet and spread this video around the web to any of those who may still be on the fence during this important election.
