Funny cartoon video about Christian right and Christian left


I like the way the Christian left guy just stares at the Christian right guy when he says some of the things he says.

Europe is cutting off drugs US needs for letal injection to get US to stop the practice

I was not aware that around the world other people are fighting to stop the barbaric death penalty system in the US. Now that one drug supplier is no longer available in the US another one in Europe will not sell the drug to the country.

It feels good knowing that you are not alone in the world.

Al Jazeera's investigative report on the Koch brothers. Real. Good. Stuff.


Al Jazeera English's Bob Abeshouse and Yasmeen Qureishi have put together an investigative report on the out-sized influence of the Koch Brothers on American democracy. The documentary premiered on AJE this week, and both starts and ends with the "Secret Koch Tapes" we exclusively published last month in a series of articles at Mother Jones and here at The BRAD BLOG.

There are a number of noteworthy points in this investigative look at the Kochs, co-owners of Koch Industries, the nation's second largest private corporation (the giant oil conglomerate inherited from their father), and how they are spending just some of the extraordinary $18 billion increase in personal wealth they've enjoyed over just the last three years under the tyranny of the Obama administration.

But among the interesting points revealed here, is the fact that this detailed exposť, a behind-the-scenes examination of two of the most powerful puppeteers behind American democracy, comes not from the far larger and better funded corporate news networks here in the U.S., but from from Al Jazeera. Go figure...

I just realized that this is not so much a good read as it is a good video. The video is very good. I am 1/2 way through it.
