It looks like Edward Snowden is now being used as a propaganda machine for Russia


and I suspect he will be used even more directly or indirectly as the Eastern Ukraine situation gets worse

Huffington Post has an article which says if the Democrats lose the Senate, the President will have

major issues filling any Supreme Court vacancy should it happen.

What I don't understand is the polls seem to reflect a 60% chance of republicans taking the Senate, however, polls also indicate that Congress has extremely low ratings, but republicans in Congress are more unpopular than Democrats.

This seems like a disconnect to me. Can both polls be correct?

Except for Matt Taibbi the guests on bill maher are idiots. All rob Lowe does is trivialize when

They were talking about equal pay for equal work, Anne Marie cox was just talking nuts, saying equal pay for equal work doesn't really exit, it is other issues, and I won't even repeat what Duncan was saying

When maher brought up nukes the conversation was even more crazy. Duncan was saying that tach nuclear weapons do not use nukes, they are just weapons to blow up underground nukes. Sorry Duncan, and bill maher for taking his word, it involves using nukes on the battlefield

Very disappointing show

Kerry has put mccain in his place. He was being attacked by mccain on the failure of the Obama

administration's foreign policy. Listening to McCain there is no doubt that if he was president we would be in multiple wars around the world. Kerry explained to this ignorant smug senator exactly why diplomacy was important instead of engagement at every turn.

If nothing else, matters, this is why the neocons cannot be allowed to have power again

Is it really true that women have no interest in voting in the midterms coming up? A supposed

"The Washington Post's Greg Sargent got an early look at the poll, which was conducted by Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg of Democracy Corps for Women’s Voices Women Vote. The poll found that voters in the so-called "Rising American Electorate" — unmarried women, minorities, and younger voters — are much less likely to vote this year than in 2012."


I honestly am very skeptical of anything that comes out of the Washington Post. I don't care if this is a Democratic pollster or not

It should be clear by now that we have to get people registered to vote, and equipped with the

proper IDs. There are 7 months to do that, and I would hope the DNC starts putting some of their money to those endeavors, and recruit people to help out.

We already know that the republicans are going to try to disenfranchise as many people as they can at the voting booth, and we really have to be proactive on this, or its over.

Things can get a lot worse. The republicans have already told us their strategy, to take the Senate in 2014, and the presidency in 2016.

The only thing we can do to prevent that is by getting voters registered, prepared identification, and transportation to the polls on election day

So Yahoo now represents as news garbage that comes from a right wing website, "The daily caller"

I do not know whether the story, "Top insurer: 15-20 percent aren’t paying Obamacare premiums" is accurate or not, but using a link from a right wing blog, and making it seems like news is bullshit.

I guess Yahoo wants to compete with drudge.

I really should drop my email with them, and go exclusively with gmail

The bush family has done irreparable damage on our country by their SC

court appointments, and unfortunately it will be the gift that will keep on giving for years to come

I am very confused. Is it against forum rules to say things like "FU President Obama"? I was under

the impression that referring that way to a Democratic President was a violation of the rules.

My question is NOT about being critical about the President or Democrats, but referring to them in extremely derogatory ways.

There seems to a lot of confusion from what I can see. Some find it perfectly acceptable, while others don't, and it would at least help me for a clarification of the rules.

After today's decision, I am convinced the SC is going to vote against birth control now. We are

now being run by 5 men on the SC
