Presidential Candidate Rick Perry Doesn’t Believe In Manmade Global Warming

Rick Perry continues to appeal to the masses.  Everyone has the right to their opinion, but the more he says things like this the more he hurts his chances to be a serious candidate in the long run.  Whoever wins the Republican bid will still need to appeal to the fringe and moderates within their own party to win the  presidency.

$360 Million US Tax Dollars Wind Up In Taliban’s Pockets

Yes, a fraction of your money that you pay in taxes has gone directly into the pockets of the people our soldiers are fighting.  In this case, with the war in Afghanistan,  aid money the US government has paid to the community and governments ends up in Taliban hands.

Aghanistan is a very corrupt country with many ties to the Taliban.  Is it time to pull our troops out?  Yes.

Wall Street Rockets Higher As Wildest Week Since ’08 Continues

If the stock market were a person it would be a fearful, neurotic basket case that spent many nights alone eating yogurt in candlelight.  It's amazing the week it's had when really not much has changed, other than panic levels.

Filmmaker Michael Moore Thinks Matt Damon Should Run For President

Would you vote for him?  While purely speculation, it is obviously not too crazy to have actors hold public office.
Matt Damon is clearly one actor who's not afraid of a good political debate, but could he run for president?

Filmmaker Michael Moore doesn't really see why he couldn't. While participating in a virtual town hall hosted by Firedoglake over the weekend, Moore proposed the Oscar winner as an option for a third party candidate.

Now, Moore hasn't spoken to Damon about his idea, but he does "think that has been very courageous in not caring about who he offends by saying the things that need to be said here," Moore said.

"And if you want to win," he continued, "the Republicans have certainly shown the way — that when you run someone who is popular, you win. Sometimes even when you run an actor, you win. I guess I only throw his name out there because

White House, Congressional Leaders Reach Debt Deal

While still not a 100% done deal at this moment, it is encouraging news.  Just like we did under George W. Bush,  we again appeared poised to raise the debt ceiling under Barack Obama as part of a last minute deal.

 
Two days before the deadline for a possible U.S. government default, President Barack Obama and congressional leaders reached agreement Sunday on a legislative package that would extend the federal debt ceiling while cutting spending and guaranteeing further deficit-reduction steps.

The proposed deal, which still requires congressional approval

Debt Ceiling Crisis For Dummies

I think we can agree that everyone knows what debt is, and at this point should know that the United States has a ton of it.  Trillions of it.  So what's the debt ceiling all about and does it really matter?  Oh yeah.  Big Time.  We could be back in a full scale recession in a couple of months.

Minnesota State Shutdown’s Over With Dayton’s Signature On 12 Bills

We knew it was getting close, but it looks like we can officially say the shutdown for the state of Minnesota has reached its end.
 

It's over. Finally.

Gov. Mark Dayton ceremoniously signed a dozen bills Wednesday morning that will turn the lights back on for Minnesota's government and close the door on a shutdown that was the longest in recent U.S. history.

In the course of three minutes, he signed a 10-inch stack of bills that will eliminate the state's $5 billion budget deficit and said that "effective tomorrow, be back to work." Dayton also said that the shuttered state parks, one of residents' flashpoints during the shutdown, now in its 20th day, will reopen Thursday.

The reason the resumption of services won't resume immediately, his aides said Tuesday, is that state law requires a day for newly-enacted laws to trigger the

The End Of Minnesota State Shutdown Appears Within Sight

The end of the shutdown seemed on the horizon late last week, then both sides met and things slowed down.  While there are seemingly some hard feelings from both sides it, looks like there is starting to be some progress in getting Minnesota back to work and having services restored.

 
A state government shutdown that put thousands of employees out of work, shuttered parks, halted road projects and kept Minnesotans on edge for weeks was within hours of ending on Tuesday night, as legislators reluctantly began passing a compromise budget.

"We have a job we need to get done here," said House Majority Leader Matt Dean, R-Dellwood. "We're going to take some chances, we are going to take some risks and we are going to move forward."

Dayton, GOP Finally Reach Budget Deal To End Shutdown

Both sides made sure to say they got something in this deal, so they can tell their respective parties they didn't back down.  Either way, the good news is it appears the end of the shutdown  is coming in a matter of days.

 
After weeks of crippling political deadlock, DFL Gov. Mark Dayton and Republican legislative leaders emerged in the darkened Capitol on Thursday to announce they had brokered a budget deal to end the longest state government shutdown in U.S. history.

The deal raises the revenue Dayton sought -- $1.4 billion -- but without raising taxes, which Republicans opposed. Instead,

MillerCoors kicked Off State Shelves Due To Shutdown

As the little kids we elected to office continue to engage in a peeing contest, more businesses are impacted by the shutdown.  Recently we reported that many bars will soon run out of liquor due to the shutdown. Now the impact may be felt sooner by MillerCoors.  Again, this could cost the state a lot of money due to lost revenue from the sale of these very popular brands.  If I were MillerCoors, I would keep going and make the state physically send people to take product off shelves.

 
The MillerCoors brewing company landed in the cross hairs of Minnesota's government shutdown Wednesday when state officials said it would have to stop selling its beer in the state because of expired licenses.
