Sen. Jeff Bingaman lays out in detail exactly why and how the recent push to increase domestic oil production leases is a scam: As you can see below, the oil and gas companies are sitting on roughly 64 million acres of production leases that they are not yet exploring or drilling: Here is a pie chart that shows all the leased acreage on Federal land for oil and gas development, onshore in the lower 48 States. As you can see, about three-quarters of all the Federal land we have leased onshore ...

OK, many (probably even most) of us can now recognize that this primary process has become simply ridiculous. The latest word is over "formal talks" between the two camps. I am dubious of not only the reports of talks, but that anything will actually be resolved in time for our candidate to ramp up a to a optimally-competitive general campaign. I'm done waiting for someone else to save our party. This is MY party too. Huffington wrote an excellent piece today at HuffPo reflecting similar ...

Clear your mind a moment and join me in a short thought experiment. Imagine that the Supreme court had not installed GWB back in 2000, and that we're finishing up with Al's 2nd term. Our de-facto candidate would be Holy Joe Lieberman. What kind of Joe would this be? Recall (though I may be mistaken on the timing) that Joe's evil side did not fully mature until sometime around 2004-2005, and were he entrenched as VP, we might not have caught that glimpse of color from the inside of his coat....

I agonized over the immigration issue for quite awhile... I could not get comfortable with my own stance until I heard similar sentiments echoed by Thom Hartmann, a man for whom I have infinite respect. Dobbs and Hartmann are both right in that: . illegal labor and cheap foreign labor DOES devalue the labor of our citizens. . amnesty WILL do nothing to stem the inflow of illegal immigrants . big business IS mostly unregulated in their use of illegal labor . this IS a Rovian red herring to d...

Well, either it makes you stupid or you're stupid to begin with leading to your belief in content or they just THINK you're stupid and in treating you that way it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy... Anyway... Here is a slightly nauseating tidbit I came across while searching for something to make my neocon associate's head explode.
