Will Scott Walker run for president in 2016?

Investigations into misappropriation of state funds has been closed.

Is the John Doe investigation into Walker still on-going?

Or was it closed?

You know you're on the right path when you're condemned to hell

(or "not going to Heaven") by a man who wants to profit off of prison labor. Nebraska Sen. Ernie Chambers is courage in action. Welcome back to the unicameral, Ernie. Nebraska needs you.

Sorry about the slanted reporting. It's difficult to find any Progressive reporting coming out of Nebraska.

Why Won’t We Talk About Violence and Masculinity in America?

http://msmagazine.com/blog/2012/12/17/why-wont-we-talk-about-violence-and-masculinity-in-america/

Young white men have entitlements and privileges that, when combined with disappointment, illness, loss and soul-strippingly unhealthy and common glorification of violence, can lead to tragedy. The only place I heard this discussed this weekend was on MSNBC’s Up with Chris Hayes, when Salon’s David Sirota pointed out that white men are really the only group in America that is “not allowed to be profiled.” We need more white men like David Sirota and Chris Hayes, who disproportionately make up our media experts and political leaders, to step up and talk openly about exactly this. About how ideas about whiteness and maleness are not only our unquestioned norms, but are imbued with an innocence and authority that makes it almost impossible to critically talk about them in terms of a pattern of horrific events like Sandy Hook.
