SAR #15089


Comply or Die” 
 
Freedom To Hate: Nineteen states now have laws encouraging hate crimes discrimination against anyone for anything as long as you pretend it is firmly based in your religious dogma. Does this mean I can put up a sign saying “No Christians allowed”? They are truly anathema to me. Let's encourage the companies and organizations (and the State of Washington) for standing up for America. 
 
Repeat After Me: Abortions are not reversible, no matter what Republicans in Arizona are forcing doctors to say.

Shadow Boxing: Republicans in the Senate have passed a meaningless wish-list budget full of red meat for the Far Right - pretending to cut $5.1 trillion from the working poor, homeless and hungry over the next ten years, while heaping hundreds of billions on defense contractors and cutting taxes on everyone who has donated over a million to a secret PAC. It's all for show, but it does show where their wallets are padded. Ted Cruz and Ron Paul both voted against the budget, viewing it as too liberal. 
 
Is Jobless Growth Inevitable? Yes, as long as the credit bubble lasts.

We're Doomed: After twenty-two years of ever more documented evidence, no more Americans are concerned about global warming/climate change today than they were in 1989. Pay attention, class, there will be a test.

Body Count: Physicians For Social Responsibility, the largest physician-led organization in the US working to protect the public from the threats of nuclear proliferation, climate change, and environmental toxins, reports that in the course of losing the War on Terror, the US has killed over 1.3 million people, nearly all civilians and mostly women and children, in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. 
 
Bingo! Somebody should tell Louie Gohmert (R– TX) that he's right, the FCC is “playing God with the Internet” - that's what they are supposed to be doing, regulating. It's nice to see at least part of the government doing its job.

An Ouch Of Prevention: Europeans have been told to close their Facebook accounts if they want to keep their personal information private. Just go cold turkey, or be one.

Roundup: A court has upheld Texas' right to deny federally mandated rights to some families based on the Republican interpretation of the Bible.  Gov. Nixon (Turncoat - MO) plans to cut the state's library budget by 90%. AZ State Senator Sylvia Allen (R- Of Course) wants to make church attendance mandatory. Republicans in Montana want the media to pay $100 for a permit and get a release from the police officer before filming him beating handcuffed prisoners.

Fact File: Israel killed more Palestinians in 2014 than in any year since 1967. 
 
Blackmail: For a fee of $30 to $60 a month, AT&T promises not to spy on your web browsing and TV viewing habits and sell that information to those who want to drown you in targeted advertising. 
 
Porn O'Graph: Visit Indiana! (Some restrictions may apply.)

Love the headline, somewhat of a play on the 'and if you don't like it, lump it attitude the 1%'s full time legislators project.

What do you suppose we'll run out of first, rope or light poles?

George, recycling is the only responsible way to go.

Anyone else have Ghostery? It's interesting to see the anti-spy paranoia from various bloggers, then realize they have trackers monitoring their readers. It's all evil until you have to pay the bills, right?

Yep, the old 'say/do' problem...
