If there's a carbon crisis, act like it

President Barack Obama is pushing a cap-and-trade program that has the ultimate goal of reducing carbon dioxide emissions in the name of halting global warming. It accomplishes this by artificially raising prices of carbon-based fuels -- coal, natural gas, gasoline -- in order to discourage their use. It's called cap-and-trade, but it's really a big […]

SEN. LANKFORD: "Can you help me get a good definition of 'birthing people?'"

BECERRA: "We're trying to be precise in the language that's used."

SEN. LANKFORD: "Mom is a pretty good word. That's worked for a while."

Ummm...who elected her? Is there something wrong with the guy we did elect? What do we pay the FLOTUS? A "United States government official"?

Prepping for the G7.

One of the most frightening articles I've ever read.


So, @SLOTribune columnist and local Democratic party apparatchik Tom Fulks was on local radio last night and told listeners that the difference between the Democratic and Republican parties is that the Democratic Party wants to help people and the GOP wants to hurt people 1/
