10 Poverty Myths, Busted

1. Absent dads are the problem. Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily.

2. Single moms are the problem. Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child's first five years.

3. Handouts are bankrupting us. In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget.

The opposite of Progressive is regressive

We are about to go backward, how far back is hard to say, but I am guessing with the love affair the republicans have with Reagan, we will regress to the 80's.

Over the course of the next two years, the media will be telling that this is the end for Democrats

They will paint the picture that the Democratic party is finished with a doomsday scenario for the liberals.

This will be their game plan ahead of the 2016 elections.

A man's right to change diapers is on the ballot in North Dakota?


North Dakota measure 6 would "create a presumption that each parent is a fit parent and entitled to be awarded equal parental rights and responsibilities by a court unless there is clear and convincing evidence to the contrary." In plain English: It's one of the first major legislative pushes by the emerging men's rights movement. The proposal, which failed in 2006, has the backing of groups like the National Coalition for Men and a A Voice for Men (which cut an ad in support). The measure had the support of 44 percent of voters in October, short of the 50 percent it needs to pass.

Oops! Nixon tweets voting pic that shows woman's exposed rear

KANSAS CITY, Mo. —A picture tweeted by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon's office Tuesday inadvertently showed a woman's behind.

In the picture, Nixon is seated next to a woman whose pants didn't quite cover it all as she voted.

The governor's office quickly deleted the picture and replaced it with another image encouraging residents to get out and vote, but not before the tweet went viral.

The governor's office has not issued a statement on the deleted tweet.

The image was taken at the governor's polling location in Jefferson City, Mo

This is how the media spins cost of living - it's always political

Why Americans Can't Afford to Live in Liberal Cities

On April 2, 2014, a protester in Oakland, Ca., mounted a Yahoo bus, climbed to the front of the roof, and vomited onto the top the windshield.

If not the year's most persuasive act of dissent, it was certainly one of the most memorable demonstrations in the Bay Area, where residents have marched, blockaded, and retched in protest of San Francisco's economic inequality and unaffordable housing. The city's gaps—between rich and poor, between housing need and housing supply—have been duly catalogued. Even among American tech hubs, San Francisco stands alone with both the most expensive real estate and the fewest new construction permits per unit since 1990.

But San Francisco's problem is bigger than San Francisco. Across the country, rich dense cities are struggling with affordable housing, to the considerable anguish of their middle class families.

Among the 100 largest U.S. metros, 63 percent of homes are "within reach" for a middle-class family, according to Trulia. But among the 20 richest U.S. metros, just 47 percent of homes are affordable, including a national low of 14 percent in San Francisco. The firm defined "within reach" as a for-sale home with a total monthly payment (including mortgage and taxes) less than 31 percent of the metro's median household income.

If you line up the country's 100 richest metros from 1 to 100, household affordability falls as household income rises, even after you consider that middle class families in richer cities have more income. [The graph below considers only the 25 richest US metros to keep city names moderately legible within the computer screen.]

Rich Households = Unaffordable Houses?

Super-Liberal Cities, Super-Unaffordable Houses


It's all because the people living in these cities are lubrul?

Boehner: Bush would have punched Putin

House Speaker John Boehner trashes President Obama's foreign policy on the campaign trail by talking up George W. Bush


Un fucking believable - we would be in WWIII if the republicans would have been in charge over the last few years.
