None of the people covering the Koch Climate Denial retreat in Dana Point, Ca. reported on the gathering, except one.
Harry Reid called on Mitch McConnell to repudiate offensive statements made at a recent Koch retreat. A reporter asked McConnell if he would do so directly, and he refused to answer.
With the recent anniversary of the ACA and only a week remaining until the health care deadline, I share my thoughts on an integral organization in passing the law, Health Care for America Now, and an interview with its executive director, Ethan Rome.
Today's conservatives aren't even a pale ghost of those of the early movement. They're a parody.
Being a progressive, I am a tolerant guy, so you conservatives should feel free to party however you see fit. But I’m glad for the sake of my humanity that I am part of the progressive movement, and not the conservative one. What a sad obsessive world modern day conservatives live in: obsessed that senior citizens and little kids and people with disabilities and those who live in poverty might be getting a free ride off the government; obsessed with trying to avoid paying taxes to support the basic government paid for infrastructure that helps us all; obsessed that Obamacare might actually allow a poor person or a young person or just someone with a pre-existing medical condition to get decent health insurance; obsessed that someone with a different sexual orientation than themselves might be able to get married or get a job. And then there’s the poor guy who’s still trying to decide whether he is brilliant or a hobbit. It’s a tough life for conservatives having to worry about all this, and their only outlet for all this this craziness is when they get together at these meeting for the chance to bay at the moon.
