Bits and Pieces for the Week of August 9 - 15

Thought for the day: Calling Republicans "Nazis" is insulting to Nazis everywhere, so show a little respect to Swastikians and just don't do it. (Mike)

The next target of town hall Republican screamers? Climate bills. (Mike)

For those blasting the United Kingdom's National Health Service, you might want to listen to Stephen Hawking, "I wouldn't be here today if it were not for the NHS"... Enough said. (7 of 6)

Fingers in ears, eyes closed, mindless chanting of "La, la la..." It seems like almost everyone is ignoring the elephant in the room. (Mike)

The case against Tasers (Mike)

I love it... Wealthy group pushes to be taxed more. I'm sure they would rather be taxed now at the lower level than have Obama enact a 50% tax on the wealthy. (7 of 6)

David Neiwert and Sara Robinson from the blog Orcinus, are doing the best blog work exposing right wing extremism in the USA. (7 of 6)
