Steve Walsh : So let me ask the sane people, do you give credence to Senator Boxer's claim that carbon emissions is having a drastic effect on weather and climate change based on SCIENTIFIC research OR do you believe the Republicans who, of course are now trying to do damage control, who state the exact opposite. Global warming and climate change are a myth and we have not damaged with environment. Daniel Killpartrick seems to think Boxer is nuts and so does his cohorts who think the polar caps are not melting and tornadoes "just happen". Of course they do but look at the increase in strength and frequency. Look at the Northeast where we have days in the 70s in December and then multiple blizzards and ice storms the next month.

Support Travis Alexander's Family : It's been an emotional day everywhere. I know everyone is upset over JA's statement, over the judge lifting the ban on JA doing tv interviews, over the jury not reaching their decision tonight .... but I am going to say what I have said many times before do NOT waste your energy venting about it anymore. It isn't going to change a thing. Turn off your tv or turn the channel from the trial stuff.
Take a deep breath .....
There are SO many people, including many of our own family members on the page, who are affected by the horrific tragedy in Oklahoma. We went through Boston and Texas together. Team Travis Strong pulled together then and will do so now. I remember Travis' family asking us all then to please hold these people in our prayers and this continues today. There is always room in our prayers as we add OK along w Travis' family, friends, JM & this jury ~ only peace & 2 days ago - View -

Congressman Thomas Massie : I recently spoke with National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) Executive Director Dudley Brown on Capitol Hill.
I will always fight to protect your Second Amendment rights. Which is why the first bill I introduced in Congress was HR 133, the Citizens Protection Act of 2013, to repeal Gun-Free school zones.
Here’s what I believe concerning the Second Amendment: The Right to Keep and Bear Arms is not principally about hunting or recreation.
In fact, the Second Amendment to our Constitution is our Founding Fathers’ restatement of our natural God-given right to defend life, liberty, and property.
I’m a decade-long concealed carry permit holder and Class III firearms collector.
When I was twelve years old, my father bought me my first gun, an H&R .410 shotgun. In the course of hunting in the woods of Kentucky, he taught me the great responsibility that comes with ownership of a firearm.
Now that I am a father of four, I enjoy teaching these same lessons to my children through hunting and target practice.
Though I may not be your U.S. Represenative in the House, I pledge to fight against ALL attempts to restrict the Second Amendment rights of ALL Americans.

Corbin Bernsen : In light of the horrific events in Oklahoma today, I will refrain from posting thoughts about my mom. Her passing is suddenly put in a new light and staggering perspective. She would slap me silly if I gave one more sentence to her.
So instead we pray for those whose lives have been torn apart, children, sweet young children taken too soon from this life. And their families who's anguish I can't even begin to imagine. I pray that somehow, pulling on the greatest reserves of their faith that they somehow do not allow the light to completely extinguish. It is in that light they will find a path to the future. I do know this, and I will give my mom a moment here, that when those children arrive home and find their place in the great mystery, my mom will be there, along with others, arms opened wide, ready to smoother them with her love. I know that love. The residual pain will be ours, here on earth, left trying to make sense of it all. I pray for the families, the responders and those in the community who will have the hard task of rebuilding lives.
Please take a moment with me, tonight, and send the same love you sent to me during my mom's final journey to all those hurting tonight. 3 days ago - View -

Amy Klobuchar : Following up on my letter, I spoke with refineries and oil companies today about getting more fuel to Minnesota during refinery maintenance shutdown. Prices are still outrageous.

– Tap my phone
– Freeze my bank account
– Take away my children
– Throw me in jail

Matt Walsh : People are criticizing Obama today because he forced a Marine to stand there in Dress Blues and hold his umbrella for him during a press conference.
I've heard Obama supporters react with exasperation at the criticism. "Give the guy a break", they insist. Well, look, I'd love to, but can the guy take a break from being an elitist snob? Seriously, can he take like 2 or 3 hours off? Can he be a normal human being for even a small period of time? You're out there to answer questions about corruption, treachery and deception, and you decide it would be wise to do so while you use a Marine like your own personal butler? What's next? Are you going to have Navy SEALS fly in to shine your shoes? Does an Army Ranger fluff your pillow for you every night? I mean, seriously dude, you can't just hold your own damn umbrella? NOBODY in Obama's circle stopped him before he went out there and said "Hey, Mr. President, there's sort of this impression everyone has that you're an aloof, petty, arrogant despot, so maybe now's the exactly wrong time to publicly utilize a member of the armed forces as your servant." Of course they didn't say that. He surrounds himself with cowardly sycophants because he's a thin skinned oligarch.
There is no amount of criticism that is inappropriate. He's just horrible. There's nothing to like. Really, I looked, I can't find one single positive trait. He is the physical manifestation of everything that is wrong with American politics. So is it petty to go after the guy for forcing a Marine to hold his umbrella so he didn't get moist during a press conference? Perhaps. But forcing a Marine to hold your umbrella so you don't get most during a press conference is even pettier. Maybe if he'd just be a man for a change, we wouldn't get to this point. 7 days ago - View -

Matthew Slotkin : When average people feel they have no other choice | NC Policy Watch “These are strange and difficult times in North Carolina. Despite its fast-growing, outward-looking, ever-more-diverse and globally-connected population, the state has taken a hard and destructive political turn backward and to the right. Thanks in large measure to a combination of the Great Recession, the largely uninspired performance it provoked in then-Governor Bev Perdue and the mid-term electoral meltdown it spurred for Democrats in 2010, an increasingly modern and progressive state has been transformed almost overnight into a Tea Party lab experiment run amok.” ---Rob Schofield, NC Policy Watch 8 days ago - View -

Since I got zero sleep last night, mom is staying with him and I am getting to bed before midnight. ( maybe before 11, woo hooo) Thank you mom! I pray he has a great night. He is so extremely over tired from getting no sleep last night, working hard in therapy and no long nap today. So he should sleep all night, if not, I am just down the hall and told mom to come get me. Hope all of you have a great night.

Mike Huckabee : Those who lament that America doesn’t have a government health care system like the British do might want to take note of this story. The Sunday Express reports that it’s so difficult to find a dentist who’ll accept patients under the National Health Service that up to a third of Britons no longer have an NHS dentist. It’s led to a surge of people buying do-it-yourself dentist kits, so that they can glue down their own loose fillings and even pull their own teeth. And why is it so hard to find a dentist? The government says they have to provide care free or below cost. But dentists say the government has slashed reimbursements until it’s not worth their while to provide expensive dental services. But don’t worry, that could never happen here…right? 9 days ago - View -
