American Faces

staff sgt. jared hagemannThis is Jared Hagemann, a married man, father of two, and a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Army. He had seen eight tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. As you might guess the stress from these assignments had finally begun to take a toll. He cried easily and talked of God never forgiving him for the things he had seen and done while overseas. He sought treatment from the military but was ignored.

When he was assigned to his 9th deployment several weeks ago, this time to Afghanistan, he shot himself in the head.

No one should have to fight these senseless oil wars once, much less nine times.

Thank you, Sgt. Hagemann, for serving your country honorably. Too bad it didn't return the favor.


phillip hinkle8-12-2011: This is Phillip Hinkle, a State Representative from Illinois. He's a staunch defender of family values and opposes legislation favorable to the LBGT community. Naturally, he's a Republican.

Which of course means he's just been caught arranging a tryst with an 18-year-old homosexual male via Craigslist.


rick idiot boy perryThis is Rick Perry. He's another idiot Texas governor running for president.

He values form over function, loves spending tax dollars, and has had no qualms about sending innocent men to death in Texas prisons. None. We've seen this lunacy before.

Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #66 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(66) 8-15-2011: Yayyyy! Republican Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee (which investigates government corruption) is keeping his home district busy by securing millions of dollars for road and public works projects. I guess it was just a complete coincidence that most of the work is planned near properties Mr. Issa owns. Uh-oh.


Dump Fox News

Fox News Lies!And what manner of lie is Fox News spewing today? They're claiming that left-wing groups spent $30 million in the recent Wisconsin recall elections. The truth is that both sides spent about $30 million total, with the right-wing getting the bulk of the donations.
