In the time it takes me to drive to work, Mitt Romney makes $6,490.20.

In the time it takes me to drive to work, our president has spent 100 times this much. (via maxvoluntarist)

Under Barack Obama’s leadership, government spending has actually slowed

Boom roasted. Christ I hate it when people refuse to understand that Obama is not on some kind of government spending spree. Seriously, where are these notions coming from?

If Obama’s evolved on gay rights, Romney’s devolved.

Oh that Mew and its deevolution beam.

Mr. Boehner comes out and says, Rush’s language was inappropriate. Using a salad fork for your entree, that’s inappropriate. Not this stuff. I mean, and Rick Santorum says well, what he says was absurd, but an entertainer is allowed to be absurd. No. It is the responsibility of conservatives to police the right in its excesses, just as the liberals unfailingly fail to police the excesses in their own side. And it was depressing, because what it indicates is that the Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh. They want to bomb Iran, but they’re afraid of Rush Limbaugh.

I love it when George Will makes sense.

A fun visual representation of how unbelievably pointless and wasteful Florida’s drug testing law is. Not pictured: the fact that that $178 million dollars went to a company owned by the governor’s wife.

This was a shameless leeching of government funds. So much for small government..

WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC: Syrian boy with his jaw blown off

Few videos could highlight the tenuous situation in Syria as one published Sunday afternoon showing a boy with his jaw completely blown off.

The video also contains other children with their limbs removed during Syrian President Bashar Assad’s violent crackdown on dissent.

The condition of the boy is unclear at the time of this post.

This is what Russia and China vetoed. This is what the world is staying silent over.

This is people’s reality. Just because big media isn’t telling you about it, does not mean it didn’t happen. Reblogging because everyone needs to know these atrocities are happening. 

These people are casualties of a senseless battle for power. UN intervention is not wanted, but needed. 

I like how the GOP preaches that democrats want to keep people poor and uneducated, when in fact, such conditions benefit republicans a great deal. (And that such statements are outright lies.) It’s such a spiraling win for them!
