Think any scientist with any intention of getting a federal research grant for himself or his university would reply to Brown with, "Why, yes, senator, I don't think the evidence to date is anywhere close to conclusive regarding man-made climate change. In fact, no one has sufficiently explained to me why we no longer call it global warming." Questioning climate change is a career killer for those in science and academics. Too much money and the potential for government-sanctioned scorn are on the line.

Elizabeth Warren on Fighting Back Against Wall St. Giants

September 5, 2014

"In Oklahoma, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her brothers grew up in “an America that invested in kids like us and helped build a future where we could flourish.” But, as she writes in her memoir, A Fighting Chance, “Today the game is rigged – rigged to work for those who have money and power… The optimism that defines us as a people has been beaten and bruised. It doesn’t have to be this way.”

You Read It Here First

And I stated it nearly a year ago, right here on Swamp Bubbles!
I have no special incite about Republican politics. It just seemed to me that the best qualified, most intelligent of the Bush family was being ignored by too many people in the discussion of who might be a strong Presidential candidate in 2016. In addition, members of the Bush family have established so many ties to so many political activists throughout the nation, how could Jeb be overlooked?

Public employees win one

Finally a victory for the hard working men and women of Michigan and possibly other states. http://www.freep.com/article/20140904/NEWS06/309040105/teachers-michigan...

Members of the Michigan Education Association should be able to resign from the union at any time, and not just during the month of August, an administrative law judge ruled this week.

Fair well to all...

God Bless you all, Fair Well....

Sweeping legislation planned in the form of the ANAA act

The ANAA With the *Americans With No Abilities Act (“ANAA”), President Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate are considering sweeping legislation that will provide new benefits for many more Americans.

The Americans With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills or ambition. "Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society," said California Sen. Barbara Boxer.

Is Pope Francis a Communist?

Some conservatives are labeling recent comments from Pope Francis as an indication that the pope is a Communist. I have included a few links with differing points of view.

I lead with Rush Limbaugh: http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2014/06/30/pope_francis_says_communist...

Here is an article from CNBC showing the concern of at least one wealthy Catholic donor. Is this a form of extortion? You be the judge. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/langone-dolan-pope-fundraising/2013/12/...

Eric Cantor To Join Investment Bank Moelis & Co. As Vice Chairman And Managing Director

Yes the former U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor will join investment bank Moelis & Co as vice chairman and managing director. Defeated in June by a Tea Party challenger in a Republican primary election, will now provide strategic counsel to the company's corporate and institutional clients on key issues.

"Eric has proven himself to be a pro-business advocate and one who will enhance our boardroom discussions with CEOs and senior management as we help them navigate their most important strategic decisions," Moelis CEO Ken Moelis said in a statement.

Too many Blacks? Democrat Quinton Ross thinks so.......

Let me get this right, Dems wanted voting districts to include a certain number of blacks, white, hispanics, seniors, etc etc to make voting fair. Now there's a district that elects a Black rep each election and is now even bigger than before with more Blacks and they are screaming. Liberals make me laugh http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/09/01/supreme-court-red...

Bumping yet another inappropriate poll from the front page

....by the color of their skin, but by their character. It's a total breakdown of parents and coaches when kids playing a sport that emphasises team work end up in a bench clearing brawl. They learn this from major league ballplayers, hockey players, and bowlers who exhibit the same behavior regularly.

Let's put the Obama vacation and golfing right-wing b*llsh*t to rest right now

Next right-winger here who makes a vacation-related remark is guilty of hypocrisy and making a liar out of The Most Holy Nancy Reagan.

Is It Starting?

Federal armed officers fired on a militia member, on private property. After at least four shots, they ordered the militia member to drop his gun. The militia member did exactly as he was told--he dropped his gun, and it seems nobody was harmed. If a cop is shooting at me, and stopped shooting long enough to say: "G-man, lose the piece", I'd do just exactly that and let the gun drop to the ground. I'd hate to see the headlines in the paper saying something like: "G-Man, known locally as G-Man, the Gentle Giant, died today after a shoot-out with Federal Officers."

The can't-do president?

A leading right-wing newspaper continues its unjustified attacks on President Obama's performance in the foreign arena. Oh wait ...
