What’s an inversion? It’s when a large corporation claims it’s based abroad to avoid paying taxes.

You don’t get to pick your tax rate. Neither should corporations. Let’s make sure we all play by the same rules.

Adult Swim’s Black Jesus Earns Family Group’s Ire for ‘Denigrating’ Christ

So for those just joining us: American Talibaners are fine with the rape, incest, mass murder, infanticide, and regicide that permeate the Bible, but don’t you dare show a Jesus who swears, smokes weed, and drinks because that’s disrespectful to Christianity.

Maddow: GOP’s lawsuit against Obama will be a goldmine for the Democrats

On Thursday night, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow showed how a group of Democrats in the U.S. House on Thursday mocked Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH)’s lawsuit against President Barack Obama over the Affordable Care Act by adding a series of amendments to the House resolution.

In doing so, she explained, Democrats made the GOP go on record as supporting the waste of taxpayer money, the lining of the pockets of lobbyists and law firms with a financial stake in the outcome and a refusal to disclose how much the whole enterprise is costing the country…

Democrats amended the bill to include a provision that each week, the Republican House will disclose to the public how much money it has spent on the lawsuit. The amendment was voted down, but now Democrats have forced Republicans to go on the record as opposing accountability for the taxpayer dollars they spend on the suit.

The Democrats continued to propose accountability measures regarding lobbyists, regarding the hiring of law firms by Congress that have enrolled their employees in Obamacare, and a slew of other measures designed to make Republicans look corrupt, petty and eager to duck public scrutiny.

We are free.

We are free.

"But when one looks at the state of Republican public opinion (especially among the likely caucus and primary voters), at the consistent and persistent messages coming from the information sources they follow, and at the supine nature of congressional leaders and business leaders in countering extremism, it is not at all likely that what passes for mainstream, problem-solving conservatism will dominate the Republican Party anytime soon."

The Existential Battle for the Soul of the GOP (via azspot)

Republicans have no interest in problem-solving. All they want to do is keep our government from working in order to make things worse for everyone except the wealthy. 

Republicans say they “support the troops” but they vote against bills that would improve health care for veterans. Republicans say they support “family values” but they are against immigration reform and a raise in the minimum wage. 

The list is much longer, but the results are the same. Republicans are not *for* anything, (except the wealthy) and they are *against* any measure that would help the lives of anyone who isn’t wealthy.

(via truth-has-a-liberal-bias)

They won’t be happy until we are all surfs. The fucking greed is boundless.

Fox News contributor George Will shocked his fellow panelists on Sunday by asserting that the United States should not deport child refugees who were fleeing violence in Central America.

“We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to America, you’re going to go to school, and get a job, and become American,’” Will suggested. “We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county.”

“They idea that we can’t assimilate these 8-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous,” he added.

All right-wing exhortations to the contrary, truth alone prevails.

In the case of Jon and Ygritte; if you were Ygritte, how would you feel about him leaving you to maintain his oath and his honor?
