Ever since President Obama announced that we’re going to Libya in a UN-sanctioned, multi-lateral “humanitarian effort” (weirdly titled Odyssey Dawn)- conservatives and liberals alike have been scratching their heads over what the response should be. The liberal knee-jerk reaction is anti-war and pro-Middle-Eastern dictator, but since their favorite president is ordering this and Europe is […]

Despite attempts to buffalo us into believing that a full economic recovery is just around the bend, there are still a lot of people out of work in the U.S., and the Senate apparently wants to make sure they stay that way. Bowling past a GOP fillibuster, the Democratic-controlled Senate ruled 60-40 to move forward […]
I’m just an American girl who got tired of making my non-political friends upset with constant rants on my personal page, and needed a place to tell you what I really think. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
