I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     Oklahoma bill to surcharge solar and wind users passes legislature.

In 1977, Oklahoma passed a bill that would prohibit power companies from adding extra charges to solar and wind users as a way to recoup some of the costs from losing those customers.  The current Oklahoma legislature has reversed that bill and the new legislation is awaiting the governor’s signature.

Happy Earth Day!

     Nancy Pelosi threw the race card into the immigration discussion.

"I think race has something to do with the fact that [Republicans are] not bringing up an immigration bill.  I’ve heard them say to the Irish, ‘If it were just you, this would be easy.’"

     Two maps to show you how economically hypocritical Red States are.

What do we hear most from Red States (other than “guns" or "Jesus" of course)?  Big government is bad and taxes are too high.  Alright, so what would happen to people in Red States if the government stepped out of their finances?  And who is actually paying for public services when those Red States are focused on tax breaks for the rich?  Let’s look at two maps.

     Ebony editor Jamilah Lemieux said “white dude” and now Conservatives want her fired.

You know I live for a White Tears Moment, but  Black White Tears are like a special holiday treat.  We all know white tears — white folks crying about something “hurtful” that really isn’t an issue to begin with, but black white tears are when black folks cry over that same issue.  That’s what we have today.

This is the biggest non-issue I have ever seen blown up to such a magnitude, and the fact that Raffi Williams doesn’t understand that HIS party is trying to use it to play distraction politics by pitting Black people against each other is ridiculous.

     The Koch Brothers are buying the midterm election and Dems are too stupid to stop it.

Politics in the US isn’t about the most worthy candidate — it’s about who spends the most money.  If you can’t raise enough money to feed a small country, then you can get elected.  It’s filthy and disgusting, but that’s the reality.  The Democrats are in a good place with fundraising for the midterm elections this year, but the Koch Brothers are about to start funneling funds to greedy Republicans in key states; Democrats will lose control of the Senate because they’re placing all of their chips on the White House in 2016.  It’s a horrible strategy and it’s going to backfire.

     I am a Republican!

Look at this diverse collection of Republicans in the GOP’s new ad campaign to win over more voters (read: people who aren’t old, white, and and nearly dead).

Not an old white man in the bunch (The dude in bottom center is Latino.  I mean, he was speaking Spanish so…)

I’m just kidding though.  I’m not a Republican because of what the people look like.  I’m a Republican now because of the GOP’s new campaign video!

     Head of TX GOP Women’s PAC can’t answer “equal-pay” question.

Bumbling simpleton.

Women in the US make 77 cents for every dollar men make (x), but according to Cari Christman, executive director of RedState Women, a new Republican PAC in Texas, women are too busy to worry about that and they want practical solutions to their problems.  I guess receiving equal pay isn’t a practical solution to being paid unequally.
