Abe
- 2 hours ago - nomadicpolitics.blogspot.com.tr
An insane tabloid article from 1995 proclaims that Hell has released its laid-off work force. And very soon, says a mystic, the demons will be making the earthly realm their home. Laughable? Yes, Ridiculous? Of course. But then again...

Why Don't Millennials Vote? Cartoonist Matt Bors Has The Answer
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Millennials, voting, progressive party, Australia, boomers, raw deal, mandatory voting )

Dandelion
- 4 hours ago - rawstory.com
I'd like to see a progressive party instead of one whose most convincing pitch is "those guys are worse so vote for us or Roe v. Wade will be overturned." The easiest way would be legally requiring them to vote as they do in Australia.

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Chris Christie, government, NJ, USA, republicans, ethics, elections, family, americans, economy, money )

Governor Christie is apparently bored by the topic, but millions of Americans working for the minimum wage don't have that luxury. Maybe Governor Christie needs to experience that first hand.

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: voter fraud, voter ID, illegal immigrants, undocumented, amnesty )

Carrie
- 7 hours ago - nationalreview.com
If they mean 6.4 percent of 11 million illegal immigrants... we're talking about roughly 700,000 votes being cast by non-citizens in 2008. Stunning. If true, it refutes my earlier contention that proven cases of voter fraud would only swing elections...

Jess
- 13 hours ago - electronicintifada.net
Unlike the tragic death of three-month-old Haya Zissel Brown, Muhammad Jrad's killing elicited only silence from the American press corps, as did that of another Palestinian child run over by an Israeli settler earlier this week.

Bruce C
- 18 hours ago - act.americansfortaxfairness.org

Chris Christie's Position on the Minimum Wage and Governor Races
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: chris christie 2016, minimum wage, governor races )

Ashley
- 1 day ago - dailykos.com
He's tired of hearing about the minimum wage! He also wants the GOP to win Gov races in 2014, so they can control voting mechanisms. Hmm... does that sound like he thinks GOP Governors should tinker with "voting mechanisms" to increase their odds in 2016?
