Three Reasons The Midterm Elections Should be a Referendum on President ObamajaredsxtnOct 30, 201402267
We have seen this story play out in countless midterm elections before. Members of the party the President belongs to run as far away from him as possible and members of the opposition try to tie members of the President's party to him at every turn. It's happened before and it will happen again, but I can't help but scratch my head and wonder why it seems to be working once again this time around. It's easy to get caught up in the 'what is he doing for me now' mentality when thinking about this or any President.
pee test the dead beats too thenunitedmajorityOct 30, 20144347
Governor Walker of WI wants drug testing for anyone on government assistance, this isn't just for welfare cases, this is for people filing for unemployment as well, a fact the main stream media here keeps hid, most believe Walker's pee test is just for welfare, not for people on unemployment too. Of course I am against this, I am against any type of testing of ones body fluids, these are a persons private parts the system has no right to, but got away with it at the work place first and now wants more.
The Top 5 States Spending The Most On TV Campaign AdssbfriedmanOct 29, 201403202
Money and politics are interchangeable; a sentiment coming more and more true with every passing election. It's not pretty. Usually its downright infuriating. But it's true. He or she that can raise the most dollar bills, and insert that pile of cash into their campaign has a great chance of buying any given election. I will throw in one monkey wrench though: social media and the internet at large.
Waving The White Flag Won't Win You This Election, Mr. FoleysbfriedmanOct 28, 201403219
"Sometimes I can't believe the things you say, Tom. So let's talk about the specifics." That was a response by current Governor Dannel Malloy to his running mate (R) Tom Foley, during their CBA debate to decide the next governor for Connecticut. And I think that line sums up well the feel of this gubernatorial race.
The University of Michigan Shows us How to be Environmental HerosjaredsxtnOct 27, 201414107
What is a university supposed to do when they decide to expand its business school and a 250 year old, forty-four foot in diameter oak tree is standing in the way? Should they knock it down? Choose another area to build the expansion? Or what about uprooting the massive tree and physically moving it 500 feet to another location? Perhaps to everyone's surprise, the University of Michigan chose the latter of these three options.
Battleground Georgia: Newcomers Playing Key Role In Overall Race For Senate ControlsbfriedmanOct 24, 201403361
In a state that has been reliably red in the last decade's worth of elections, this mid term Georgia Senate race has some newcomers that can really shake things up, and give an all important tally win, either red or blue, in the battleground for overall Senate control. Historically, its true that the President's party doesn't do well in the mid-terms.
New Hampshire Should Disown Brown for Senate Before He Beats Them to ItjaredsxtnOct 23, 201413532
How difficult is it to remember what state you work in and who your current employer is? My guess is that nearly everyone in this country knows the answer to these two simple questions, but you can add Scott Brown to the list of individuals who has difficulty answering them. Brown, who is currently running for Senate in New Hampshire, recently filed a document with the Federal Election Commission stating that his current occupation is that of a Massachusetts state senator.
Congressional Hopeful Humbly Omitted His Decorated PastZach FOct 22, 2014232647
After Seth Moulton beat out sitting Representative John Tierney in the primary for the Democratic spot on Massachusetts’ ballot for the 6th District House Seat last month, reporters started to dig into to the past of this relatively unknown candidate and ended up with a refreshing surprise. Moulton, who achieved the rank of Second Lieutenant during the Iraq War, was awarded the Bronze Star medal for valor and the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation medal for valor for his service in 2003 and 2004.

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.

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.

It will be located in a separate building within the compound and will have its own separate entrance.

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.
