I have been following the story of these twelve teenage girls from upstate New York who all mysteriously developed tic’s which are not unlike Tourette’s syndrome. They have been featured in several news stories for months now. They all have been experiencing sudden verbal outbursts, uncontrollable arm motions and facial tics. It appeared as though there was a toxin or infectious agent involved, but none were to be found.
Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) is one of the most destructive Senators on Capitol Hill.

And so far, they’re spending heavily on the Republican race. No surprise there. This app, part of ProPublica’s long-term investigation into “dark money,” keeps track of where super PACs are spending their cash to influence the presidential race.

They have been acting in behalf of their own monetary concerns and not in the best interest of the people.
Let’s take John Boehner for example. More…
Here are some amazing photos of the Coast Concordia. It has been hard to grasp the size of this ship from most of the pictures I’ve seen, and the news coverage on TV and the internet. However, in a few of these photos, the rescuers look like tiny miniatures when photographed next to sections of the ship. These are some truly incredible pictures.
Clicking on a thumbnail will bring up the photo in full size and you may then toggle through at your own pace. More…
Recently, there have been two incidences at two separate schools in Georgia where slavery and racism have been openly displayed. The first was when a teacher used slaves in several math problems on the test. And just recently, a teach participated in a “slave game” being played by the students.
Talk about timing…. This story below came across my Facebook wall just a short while ago. It claims to be true, but I do not know the origin. Regardless, I believe you will enjoy the ending.
Millions of shop owners in India are fighting for their survival, as the threat of Wal-Mart knocks at the door. While entry for international supermarket giants has been shelved for now, there are those who argue the move would be good for consumers and employment.

Origami is the art of folding paper, so what’s it called when one creates a digital representation of the meticulous paper art? Whatever it is, artist Jeremy Kool has mastered it in his series entitled The Paper Fox. Kool brilliantly displays paper sculptures of all types of wildlife. The Australia-based graphic designer’s digital illustrations range from an imposing stag to a modest firefly, each made with remarkable believability with realistic creases and textures.
From the subtle to the sickening, this Republican primary season has seen a normalizing of racist and racially-coded language. The three primary beliefs of the GOP’s are white, Christian, and heterosexual.
On the eve of the second anniversary of the much-despised Citizens United ruling, activists with the Other 98% and Backbone Campaign put a giant dollar sign light projection, along with a few other messages, on the Supreme Court building to protest the ruling that undermined government of, by and for the actual people by defining corporations as people and money as speech.
