You see the main argument Republicans use is that its some lazy person who needs medicaid expansion. That those of us living without healthcare or dental care are lazy. But my friend a single beautiful mother worked 3 jobs. She paid taxes . She paid her house taxes. And now shes dead…I am buring my best friend because of the policies of the Republican Party. I am burying my best friend because had medicaid expanded, her needs would have been met.
Wow, where are all the ladies?
Do I have the best credentials? Probably not. ‘Cause, you know, whatever.
SOTU hasn’t started and House GOP is already keepin’ it classy.

The all-male House Subcommittee on Constitution & Civil Justice will be hosting an anti-abortion hearing Thursday

Yeah, you see the irony! Here they have an opportunity to prove their commitment to a truly “pro-life” agenda and seize a timely moment to talk about inequality, unemployment and families trying to get by on next-to-nothing, but they’re choosing the “Let’s get all the boys together and whine about stupid sluts” route. 

Your tax dollars at work. Leadership at its finest.

It’s funny how when women have something to say they’re likened to Barbie.

Sarah Palin was “caribou Barbie,” now Wendy Davis is “abortion Barbie.”

Regardless of how I feel about either of their political views, it’s really alarming that in 2013 America doesn’t even attempt to hide its inclination towards silencing a woman’s point of view by referring to her as an object. Not just an object, but a fucking toy. 

Women aren’t just inanimate — they are playthings to be manipulated.

Fuck, at least try to be creative.

The joke is it’s not a joke…

As a “liberal” it does not annoy me if you say ‘Merry Christmas’

I know many many liberals. I have not met one who is annoyed by said greeting. So if you were dumb enough to spend money on some busted-ass comic sans covered T-shirt b/c you were promised it would annoy liberals…the joke’s on you. If anything it just makes me laugh at you more.

A prominent Washington, DC Tea Party group has asked the FEC to give them an exemption from the reporting and disclosure requirements not only for donors, but also for expenditures. That means they will be allowed to operate under cover of complete darkness, and function as a conduit for billionaires’ money to buy midterm elections in 2014.
I’m reminded of that old, grammatically flawed joke…

If the opposite of pro is con, what is the opposite of progress?
