    The wingnut burning Obama’s to-do list is hilarious, as are the other cartoons. Thanks JJ.

    Watch out for exploding wingnut heads

    The administration said that the Department of Justice will propose a regulation to codify who is not allowed to possess guns again for mental health reasons. It also said that the Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a regulation that would address barriers that don’t allow states to share information about mentally ill people with the federal background check system.

      I hope this doesn’t end up stigmatizing people with psychological disorders even more than already happens.

      The upheaval also affirmed the soaring capabilities of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the rebranded version of the al-Qaeda in Iraq organization that was formed a decade ago to confront U.S. troops and expanded into Syria last year while escalating its activities in Iraq. Roughly a third of the 4,486 U.S. troops killed in Iraq died in Anbar trying to defeat al-Qaeda in Iraq, nearly 100 of them in the November 2004 battle for control of Fallujah, the site of America’s bloodiest confrontation since the Vietnam War.

      Events Friday suggested the fight may have been in vain.

        Can we drop Cheney and Dubya off at the Hague Now?

          Makes me feel sick to think of all the lives wasted because Republican chickenhawk ideology. Their foreign policy is despicable enough. But their domestic policy has also ruined millions of lives with poverty and illness. Times are tight? Cut spending on education, healthcare, safety, the environment, and taxes on the rich. Hey, all the 1% are happy!

    Ah yes, worship of the almighty dollar. Funny how that explains so many crazy things.

  5. dakinikat says:

    In his final speech as Fed Chair, Ben Bernanke identifies the No. 1 thing that’s caused the economy to be so slow: not enough government spending. He specifically calls fiscal policy “excessively tight.”

      I am so tired of the Republican party being so obviously wrong over and over and it costing us all lives, money, and just about everything possible.

      • dakinikat says:

        this is how I feel between this and the bit on Iraq. From the day Reagan got elected and I asked my students why are we so freaking obsessed with the USSR, they won’t last through the end of the century to later askig my friends hy are we attacking Iraq to later asking why aren’t we doing the right things in this recession? It’s just ridiculous. It’s so obvious. Why are so many of our decision makers bribed to be oblivious?


    • NW Luna says:

      “excessively tight.” Stranglingly tight is more accurate.

    The Taps carried even more irony for me since I’m reading this post from a phone.

    Thirty small skeletons were discovered in an unmarked mass grave-site at the Port Alberni BC United Church of Canada residential school for native children. For the last three months the Canadian Government has thwarted plans for excavation by Archeologist Kevin Annett of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State.

    It is not the first time the Canadian government has suppressed evidence of child genocide. Since the 1800s and through the 1990s thousands of native children were forced under the care of Catholic, United Church of Canada and Anglican residential schools jointly owned by the Canadian government. Two years ago a grave-site was unearthed near the Anglican-run Mohawk Institute for native children in Brantford, Ontario. In September 2011 the Canadian government stopped recovery efforts after four days of digging and upon discovery of an underground torture chamber, plus human remains. The team of archeologists headed by Annett and a man from the Smithsonian Institute, have yet to resume their dig.

    One grave dig that I am extremely sad to share.
