Source: Huffington Post

One day after The White House released 100 pages of Benghazi emails, a report has surfaced alleging that Republicans released a set with altered text.

CBS News reported Thursday that leaked versions sent out by the GOP last Friday had visible differences than Wednesday's official batch. Two correspondences that were singled out in the report came from National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes and State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.

3) Shady business dealings. The Pritzkers have a long history of business malfeasance at the expense of people of modest means. In one notable case, Congress passed legislation in 2003 to address issues raised by widespread charges that the Pritzker’s credit rating agency, TransUnion, had made serious flaws in its credit reports on individuals—and then failed to correct them upon discovery....

Neighborhood Solar Power

Imagine two different pictures to characterize our energy choice. The one we have now is reliance on importing energy into neighborhoods, sometimes from hundreds of miles away, while we export dollars and jobs. The other picture is to generate energy from within our neighborhoods from homes, apartments, businesses, covering parking lots and other developed lands, literally pushing energy out from within along the powerlines located on our public right of way while importing and capturing dollars and jobs.



A union member, a tea party activist, and a CEO...

..are sitting at a table with a plate of a dozen cookies in the middle of it.

The CEO takes 11 of the cookies, turns to the tea partier and says,

'Watch out for that union guy. He wants a piece of your cookie.'

I forgot where I heard this but it's one of my favorites.
