Do Sens. Collins, Nelson et al Want to Fire Teachers? - Shadowproof

Do Sens. Collins, Nelson et al Want to Fire Teachers? - Shadowproof

The that the Senate’s so-called "moderate" block thinks the best way to stimulute the economy is to cut about $90 billion from the spending side, and perhaps take it out of state spending for education. Are they nuts?Nonetheless, the appropriations portion remains the most vulnerable part politically, and the moderates would like to bring the total cost back toward the $800 billion level discussed earlier by the White House.State fiscal aid and education funding will be among the most sensitive proposed cuts, and if $90 billion is the goal, it would represent an estimated 25% cut. “We are...

Stare Decisis v. Ugly Babies - Shadowproof

Stare Decisis v. Ugly Babies - Shadowproof

During their confirmation hearings, Justices Roberts and Alito told Judiciary Committee members how much they respected stare decisis, the principle that past Supreme Court decisions would be honored and not overruled without compelling reasons to do so. These assurances were part of the elaborate charade put on to fool the willingly gullible and calm Democratic fears that these new justices would apply a slash and burn approach through the great liberal decisions of the last 50 years. But now that the Roberts/Alito Court has finished its first term, it is painfully clear that there is no...

WaPo's Glenn Kessler Creates Stupid, Irrelevant Employment Chart, Then Misreads It - Shadowproof

WaPo's Glenn Kessler Creates Stupid, Irrelevant Employment Chart, Then Misreads It - Shadowproof

Pinocchio by Enrico MazzantiLeave it the Washington Post’s Mr. Pinocchio, Glenn Kessler,  to misinform readers again by providing useless, irrelevant information and then misreading it.   Today’s contribution to the dumbing of America is a chart the wizards of WaPo created to compare the job creation performance of Mitt Romney with that of President Obama.  What?Now the first thing you must be asking yourself is, how is such a comparison even possible?  When did the two men hold comparable jobs or have comparable power to affect employment?  Uh, never. ...

Little Paul Ryan, 12 Years Old, Has Nightmares about Central Planners, Whose Levees Are Saving New Orleans from Drowning - Shadowproof

Little Paul Ryan, 12 Years Old, Has Nightmares about Central Planners, Whose Levees Are Saving New Orleans from Drowning - Shadowproof

Hoover Dam by Ansel Adams, National Archives (Wikipedia)Paul Ryan’s speech to the Republican National Convention will be praised by unthinking pundits today for its success is revving up the GOP base — and you can only shake your head at what that takes these days. From early reactions, I suspect the speech will be a litmus test for how much of the media made it to adulthood. Those who failed will likely ignore the destructive, infantile message Ryan was sending to the American people, proving how little he understands about a modern economy and how nations become strong and its people...

McCain's Health Care "Reform" = Voodoo Economics and Double Talk - Shadowproof

McCain's Health Care "Reform" = Voodoo Economics and Double Talk - Shadowproof

John McCain yesterday to illustrate why his ideological addiction to unfettered markets cannot solve America’s health care crisis. Not only would it fail to cover everyone, his proposal could effectively strip millions of Americans of the employer-based coverage they now have without any certainty that what replaces it would work or be affordable.McCain proposes that we replace the current employer-provided insurance system with individually acquired private insurance. It’s analogous to Bush’s plan to undermine Social Security and replace it with private retirement plans.The proposal is...

Bush Is a Disaster, But It's Good for Republicans - Shadowproof

According to the WaPo’s Peter Baker, the White House thinks and the Republicans, now that they’ve got their new Attorney General, Bush is vetoing spending bills and the reported killings in Iraq are back to levels not seen since early 2006.After more than two years of being buffeted by one political disaster after another, President Bush and his strategists think they may finally be getting back at least a bit of their footing. While still facing enormous challenges, from the crisis in Pakistan to the backlash over children’s health care, they hope Bush has arrested his downward spiral and...

Is There No Decency Left in the Republican Party? - Shadowproof

Is There No Decency Left in the Republican Party? - Shadowproof

The American people have many reasons to find the Republican Party and their deeply unpopular President repulsive. This gang of thugs abandoned every principle they ever professed and instead became the party of corruption, dishonesty, incompetence, coddling the privileged and systematically neglecting the nation’s needs, while debasing the nation’s honor with torture, kidnappings, warrantless spying, aggressive war and unparalleled lawlessness. It is a record unequalled in our history.But even now, their capacity for meanness stuns us. That meanness is on full display in for supporting...

The GOP/Right Wing Wurlitzer’s Latest Big Lie: “EPA Power Grab” - Shadowproof

Have you heard about the “EPA Power Grab”? This one’s a whopper, a pernicious, flat out lie so big, so harmful, and so wrapped in hysteria it’s no wonder there are conservative heads exploding all over the right wing propaganda Wurlitzer.Someone made me read the , who was lamenting the fact that administrative agencies created by Congress have the temerity to propose and adopt regulations that Congress empowered and directed them to enact, in EPA’s case after the Supreme Court told the reluctant agency heads they had that mandate, so get on with it.In Krauthammer’s view, whenever an agency...
