And In This Corner, Gov Rick Scott: The Master of Doublespeak And NonsenseOct 17, 2014sbfriedman12543
"Governor Scott... I'm not sure I got an answer to the question.." That was a remark from one of the moderators at the gubernatorial debate between incumbent Florida Governor Rick Scott and his Democratic opponent, Charlie Crist. Rick Scott was asked a very straight forward question on discrimination with gay marriage: "Governor Scott, you say you are against discrimination. But the courts have said that Florida's ban on same sex marriage is unconstitutional because it is discriminatory.
Push Through the Political Headwinds and Reelect Senator LandrieuOct 16, 2014jaredsxtn02217
Of all the Senate Democrats up for reelection in 2014, Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu may have one of the toughest hurdles to overcome if she is going to claim victor this November. The three term Senator represents a state that is tilting heavier to the right than ever before, having overwhelmingly voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 and electing big Republican majorities in both the state house and senate.
A Social Compact For 21st Century AmericaOct 14, 2014jaredsxtn02193
Of all the pieces of legislation that came about to help dig America out of the Great Depression, none had a greater impact than the Social Security Act. This single piece of legislation and subsequent amendments expanding the eligible number of recipients dramatically rewrote the social compact between the federal government and the citizens it governs.
Nobel Peace Prize Puts Children First: Awards Youngest Recipient EverOct 10, 2014sbfriedman13391
In a year where war, violent protest, terrorist attacks and deadly diseases grab every headline, it's nice to take a step back for a moment and honor those that act in peace, and dedicate their lives to the uphill battle for real change. Enter Malala Yousafzai, a 17-year-old Pakistani children's rights activist, and now by far the youngest recipient of the coveted Nobel Peace Prize.
Can We Make This The Last Columbus Day?Oct 9, 2014jaredsxtn43605
America has her share of legitimate federal holidays. We rightfully celebrate our first President's birthday, a civil rights icon, our independence, soldiers who fought and died for our country, and even sprinkle in a couple blatantly religious holidays to boot. However, there is one holiday we as a nation should seriously reconsider if we are going to be honest about our true history. We all know the story. In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue. He sailed for many days and many nights and 'found' the new world.
Super-Centers Are Leaving Part-Time Workers To Fend For ThemselvesOct 8, 2014sbfriedman03360
Walmart, our nation's largest retailer, is cutting some 30,000 part-time employee's health care benefits, due to the rising costs for the company. The reports are showing that rising costs in keeping part-timers covered through their providers are costing them upwards of $500 million in increased charges this year alone, thanks in large part to the mandate that requires every adult citizen to be enrolled in some version of healthcare now.
The End is in Sight For Nationwide Marriage EqualityOct 7, 2014jaredsxtn12337
When is it time to throw in the towel and accept that the tide has turned? Napoleon must have asked himself this very question after being humiliated in the Battle of Waterloo and summarily exiled for the remainder of his life. It's also the same question many anti-gay marriage activists must be asking themselves after the Supreme Court refused to wade back into the gay marriage debate.
Ebola Breaks Out in US! End of the World!Oct 2, 2014Zach F26393
Warning! Ebola has reached the shores of the United States. As most people know, a man traveling from Liberia, one of the infected countries, was diagnosed with Ebola on September 29 in a Dallas hospital. He has since been quarantined and the people he was in contact with have been notified and are under observation for the next 21 days. This is proof that the government has been irresponsibly downplaying the threat of an Ebola outbreak. We were told that the U.S.

2014 JUNPresident Obama Declare Terrorist Threat ‘Gone’Terrorism & Barack Obama0

04/16/14The Census is Being Manipulated to Skew Obamacare Numbers Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
President Obama's critics are claiming that the Census Bureau has changed its annual survey's questions to determine the amount of individuals who have health care coverage so the Obama Administration will be able to report that more American's have health coverage than actually do. The truth of the matter is that the new questions were developed during the Bush Administration, well before Obamacare became law, and are intended to provide a more accurate number of the amount of individuals who have health insurance coverage.
2013Small Businesses Dropping Majority of Employees Due to ACAObamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Republicans are falsely claiming the Affordable Care Act has forced upwards of 75 percent of small business owners to fire employees or to cut their hours so they won't have to pay for health insurance coverage.

2013 DECMedicare application is used to create a gun registryMedicare, Gun Control & NRA0
The NRA and other pro gun advocates are falsely claiming that the application for Medicare asks individuals to disclose how many guns they own so they can make a gun registry.

11/27/13President Obama Closed The Vatican Embassy Vatican City, Barack Obama, Republican Party & Italy0
Conservatives are claiming that President Obama has closed down the American embassy in the Vatican. In actuality, there are no embassies from any country within the Vatican, because the county is too small.

It will be located in a separate building within the compound and will have its own separate entrance.
11/19/13Obama Omitted "Under God" From Gettysburg Address RecitationBarack Obama0
Republicans are up in arms after President Obama didn't say "under God" while participating in a taping of the Gettysburg Address for filmmaker Ken Burns.

2013 NOVMedicaid Expansion Will Bankrupt StatesMedicaid & Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Many Republican states have claimed they rejected Medicaid expansion because it would have bankrupted their state. In actuality, multiple independent economic experts insist that expanding Medicaid will be very favorable to the states because of the out sized role the Federal Government plays and also the savings that states will realize by not using other vital resources on their uninsured citizens.
