THE FLAG

From "Oklahoma Source"

Let's be clear. This flag was designed to symbolize racism, as stated by it's creator. 
You may *want* it to represent something else, but it does not, and never will.

REPUBLICANS RIDICULOUS REPLACEMENT

Back in February, Jeffrey Young and Jonathan Cohn of The Huffington Post wrote an insightful piece about the Republican side of our government wrestling with the quandary about what to do if the Supreme Court rules on the side of the plaintiffs in "King vs. Burwell", thereby causing subsidy problems for millions of Americans. That article is here :

Now along comes Jeffrey Young again yesterday with a four month later follow up which basically proves once again that the Republicans cannot or will not do anything except the same tired response, being to repeal the Affordable Care Act in its entirety ! Of course they say they have a plan to replace the ACA with something better, but they use all of the ACA's best parts and try to substitute what they say will give a "free market" approach. That approach is what we all had before the ACA was enacted and no person can be found on the planet that can prove that it worked !
Here is the link to Jeffrey Young's latest piece:

TRUMP TRIES TRUMPING THE TRUTH

How fast can you refute The Donald's phony facts in his Presidential campaign ? Less than twenty four hours later, Factcheck.org rips his stuff apart. Line by line you can see the absurd statements dissected, viscerated, and done with ! I cannot take the time to go over all of the absurdities in The Donald's speech. It is much easier to direct you to YouTube for the video and to this link for the fact autopsy !

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE BEING MADE A JOKE

This is the best article that I have read about the constant attempts to blur the lines between the separation of church and state. Some of the arguments presented by these lawmakers are beyond a " little sketchy ." I would direct your attention to this comment by Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX) "Let me be clear: Americans have the freedom of religion – but not freedom from religion. "

Sadly, I wish this was made up, but it is not,
