Kids and Censorship

While searching for someting else I came across KidsSpeak Online, a great website run by the “American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression.” Great resources, and for someone from the state of Bernie Sanders, who stood up to the book snooping provision of the PATRIOT Act, it’s nice to see a …

GOP Aide Busted for Fake Blog

From the department of “do as we preach, not as we do” comes yet another golden moment from the New Hampshire GOP. One of Incumbent House member Charles Bass’ Congressional aides has apparently been busted for posing as a progressive to spam the discussions at great NH election watchdog sites …

Last Days of Summer

One of our (very) local ski destinations (it’s not really a mountain, just a big hill) re-opened last winter to the shittiest season ever. That was tough, but all the same, they’re going to be around for the year ahead, which is great news for those of us with kids …

Hey, Hey, Joe, Joe!

The tireless heroes over at Firedoglake continue to hound the pathetic, petulant child posing as the senior senator from Connecticut. What a sad figure. He’s rolled over for the GOP so many times he couldn’t have remained a Democrat even if he’d gotten the votes to prove it. Now he’s …
