Harrowing statistic. This is an amazing statement: For the second year in a row, the U.S. military has lost more troops to suicide than it has to combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Originally found here.
Portrait of Bradley Manning by Stephen Pitt I just wanted to say a quick thank-you to everyone today for your support when David House and I were being detained at Quantico. I donâ€™t think any of this had anything to do with me, or frankly the 42,000 petition signatures. The only thing I did was […]
When I read that Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens was going to retire, I thought, “I hope President Obama nominates someone decently liberal to succeed him.” There’s been a short list of legitimate, potential nominees floating around ever since Sonia Sotomayor replaced David Souter.

Here are my thoughts. The House of Representatives […]
So Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., has a very interesting idea – a bill that will withhold Federal health benefits from members of Congress until Health Legislation is passed.Â What a novel idea. I wholly support it. Via The Washington Independent PS. I had to look up how to spell wholly, for some reason it just […]
