Re: Anti-Science House GOP Cranks Up

Democrats are trying to use science, math, reality, history and education to reason with people who deny science, don’t trust math, create their own reality, distort history and often devalue quality education. And that’s a big reason why we’re not [more]

I don't care if 100% supported quarantines. What is right and what is wrong are not determined by votes or opinion polls. The American public has every right in the world to institute wrongheaded policies, and I support the form of government that [more]

Re: Namkato- Add Another Nobel Prize Muslim

People who bomb civilians get Nobel Prizes - so if killing lands a peace Price, perhaps it's ok to award those who survive violence too?

Re: Namkato- Add Another Nobel Prize Muslim

Can we just be frank here. Agree or disagree, if ISIS was threatening the southern oil fields of Iraq, "our" response would be a lot more belligerent.

Re: Fact check, anyone?

Hey, they sure do want US profits. Sadly, 30 years of Reaganomics has destroyed most of the middle class. Thus, the biggest consumers are tapped out......and the only thing that will likely change that is an increase in wages. Until companies pay [more]
