Texas Democratic Convention

Posted by on Saturday, June 28, 2014,
A few pics from the Texas Democratic Convention I attended, which took place on 6/27/14. When we first arrived, U.S. Congressman Joaquin Castro was speaking. No pics because we were too busy watching his speech and the next few who followed him, while looking for our seats. He was followed by Senator Kirk Watson and Representative Trey Martinez Fisher. The latter gave an absolutely rousing speech (about a quarter of it in Spanish, the rest in English and he said different things in each ...

Watch the GOP War On Women In Action

Posted by on Thursday, June 14, 2012,
Michigan State Reps. Lisa Brown, D-West Bloomfield, and Barb Byrum, D-Onondaga, were told today by GOP floor leader R-John Stamas that they wouldn’t be recognized to publicly speak on any matters before the House.

This was after their impassioned attempt to speak out on the floor against abortion bills that not only severely limit the Constitutional right of a woman to obtain an abortion, but actually puts a woman's life at risk! One of the Reps also wondered aloud why is it that only the Ch...

The Private Sector Under Obama

Posted by on Sunday, June 10, 2012,

"We're going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share," h...

Mitt Romney's Ethics Problem: Blind Trust Edition


Not only does Mitt Romney have no problem hiding his tax returns from voters, but he also has reasons to hide his tax returns from voters.

A blind trust is not a blind trust when there is direct or indirect control over investment decisions. While Romney has nominally placed his investments in a trust which is managed by someone else, the person he has chosen to manage those investments is his close associate and personal atto...
