Rand Paul Tosses Libertarian Supporters and ideals "under the bus"

Rand Paul Tosses Libertarian Supporters For The Religious Right

Rand Paul, like his father, courted the college vote with his libertarian views on national security issues. Ron Paul also held some of the religious vote by ditching those views to express his wholehearted objection to women's rights in general and abortion rights in particular.

Rand, on the other hand, has decided that he must ditch everything he courted those college kids' votes for. Check out this interview, where he panders with impunity to the hard right Christian wing of the Republican Party.


So government is bad unless it's in the face of people who love each other and women who want control of their reproductive systems. Good to know. Pay attention, young people.

Massive underground city discovered in Turkey may have housed 20,000 people or more

In 2013, workers in Turkey looking to demolish low-income housing near a Byzantine-era hilltop castle stumbled upon something extraordinary: an expansive underground city that may have housed 20,000 people or more.

In 2014, those documents led researchers to a multi-level underground village of living areas, wineries, chapels, and bezirhane-linseed presses for generating lamp oil. The research team was able to find numerous small artifacts, including stone crosses and ceramics. The artifacts reveal that the settlement was used from the Byzantine era all the way up to the Ottoman conquest, researchers said.

The team said that the newly discovered site appears to be similar to a nearby underground settlement called Derinkuyu, with airshafts and water channels designed to sustain life.

Upset By Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Banks Debate Halting Some Campaign Donations

Big Wall Street banks are so upset with U.S. Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren's call for them to be broken up that some have discussed withholding campaign donations to Senate Democrats in symbolic protest, sources familiar with the discussions said.

Representatives from Citigroup, JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America, have met to discuss ways to urge Democrats, including Warren and Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, to soften their party's tone toward Wall Street, sources familiar with the discussions said this week.

Ted Cruz is Canadian

Cruzís official Canadian birth certificate, as posted by the Dallas Morning News, shows that Rafael Edward Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, on December 22, 1970. Oddly, however, the birth was not registered until December 31, leaving an unexplained gap of nine days. But where was baby Ted over Christmas, an astute birther might ask. Donald Trump could build a casino in a hole that size.


His mother would have to go to the American Embassy and file for his American citizenship. Where are those papers?

Barney Frank: Congress Has Closeted Gays

Barney Frank knows that there are members of Congress who have not come out. That's their choice unless, of course, they're behind anti-gay legislation. Then it's a problem.

Obama Care saved hospitals at least $7.4 billion over the last year

A massive expansion of insurance programs like Medicaid and a drop in emergency room visits saved hospitals at least $7.4 billion over the last year, the Obama administration announced Monday.

With millions more people covered under ObamaCare last year, hospitals faced fewer bills from patients who lacked insurance and were unable to pay. Hospitals also saw fewer emergency room visits, which rack up far higher costs and often leave hospitals with the tab.

The costs of those services ó known as uncompensated care ó dropped by one-fifth nationwide in 2014, according to a government report released Monday.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released the findings to mark the fifth year since the passage of ObamaCare.

Nearly 70 percent of those savings came from states that have expanded the eligibility for Medicaid under ObamaCare. The 29 states with Medicaid expansions saved a total of $5 billion last year, compared to the $2.4 billion saved in states that did not expand the program.

The DNC has no leadership!

The GOP is destroying the United States once again.......

Everywhere you turn you see their hands on plans to destroy the working man. Ignoring the GOP's recent actions is to do so at your own detriment. The GOP is going after the working class.

The War Has Started.........

Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has begun an aggressive campaign to block President Obamaís climate change agenda in statehouses and courtrooms across the country, arenas far beyond Mr. McConnellís official reach and authority.

The campaign of Mr. McConnell, the Senate majority leader, is aimed at stopping a set of Environmental Protection Agency regulations requiring states to reduce carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants, the nationís largest source of greenhouse gas emissions.

Once enacted, the rules could shutter hundreds of coal-fired plants in what Mr. Obama has promoted as a transformation of the nationís energy economy away from fossil fuels and toward sources like wind and solar power. Mr. McConnell, whose home state is one of the nationís largest coal producers, has vowed to fight the rules.


The war against the Democratic Party has began............

House Republicans just released their new budget. Bad news:

House Republicans just released their new budget. Bad news: itís a nearly identical version of Paul Ryanís disastrous plan from last year. The main point? Destroy Medicare and the Affordable Care Act so the GOPís billionaire backers can enjoy lavish tax breaks.
