The single, solitary reason I don’t believe in most government conspiracy theories.

Meet Stella Tremblay. Stella is a GOP member of the  New Hampshire House of Representatives. Last week, Stella wrote this on Glenn Beck’s wall regarding the Boston bombers: Just as you said would happen. Top Down, Bottom UP. The Boston Marathon was a Black Ops “terrorist” attack.

Mitch McConnell filibusters his own bill in game of Chicken with Senate

A rather remarkable thing happened on the Senate floor yesterday.  Kentucky Senator and former Tootsie Pop spokesman Mitch McConnell came to the floor to ask for a vote on raising the debt ceiling.  This type of vote isn’t new – the federal debt limit has been raised 106 times since 1940, 18 times under Ronald […]
