Huckabee Opposes Insurance For People With Pre-Existing Conditions

 So much for Christian compassion and the age old Christian concept of “Faith, Hope and Charity”.  It seems the ultra Conservative Christian “Reich” feel that the above tenets are not a requisite to be a member of their version of “Christianity.  Every now and then I have to repeat Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi words:  I like your Christ, I… More Huckabee Opposes Insurance For People With Pre-Existing Conditions

BP Oil Spill, NYC Terror Plot: Limbaugh & Co. Go Nuts

Politics Daily – David Corn Remember during the George W. Bush administration when a former Clinton official appeared on “Hardball,” stated that President Bush had allowed 9/11 to happen for political gain, and Chris Matthews nodded along in agreement?

Texas lawmaker: Obama is ‘God’s punishment on us.’

I know this sort of talk from lawmakers, televangelists and just plain crazies across the country should not alarm me at this point, but it still does.   I still have to wonder what color is the sky on their planet?

Could this be a sign of things to come from some moderate Republicans?  Are they tired of the hardline and divisive politics that has plagued our country since the election of Barack Obama?   I suppose time will tell, but I’m feeling rather optimistic after reading about Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) response to some town hall questions and… More Sen. Tom Coburn Tells Town Hall: “Don’t Catch Yourself Being Biased By Fox News”

Think Progress: Vandals hit at least five Dem offices nationwide, threaten to ‘assassinate’ children of pro-reform lawmakers.

I have a dire prediction.  Even before I saw Think Progress’ headline today, I’ve been thinking for a few weeks now that something terrible is going to happen and that “something” will be perpetuated by a “teabagger”. When one hears Rush Limbaugh’s rhetoric, “we need to get rid of every last one of those bastards…”… More Think Progress: Vandals hit at least five Dem offices nationwide, threaten to ‘assassinate’ children of pro-reform lawmakers.
