Hmmm…Common sense dictates that more open competition is needed for better internet service and quality for Americans comparable to what Europeans already enjoy. I signed the petition I received in my email from the intrepid folks at Daily Kos. You might want to consider doing the same.
In the days following the President’s big speech outlining his intentions to do something to curb gun related murders, and after taking some time to think about who really wins and loses if any kind of changes in law really occurs, and then marveling at how crazy some folks get on both sides of gun control, I had a few questions plaguing me.
I decided to throw a few questions out there for consideration.
How many Senators and Congress persons are in the NRA’s pocket?
When will we get a full time ATF head, and in fact, a more robust ATF?
How the heck did we get to the point that it is standard practice to run all legislation past an industry’s lobbyists for approval and notes, prior to nomination?
Why is a right to own an object more precious and sacred than protecting American lives?
Is the NRA objection to Universal background checks more to prevent a slowing in the growth of gun sales, rather than a defense of the second amendment?

Ignore Mitch McConnell for two years? Great Idea for a petition!! Kids, our friends at Daily Kos need our help and support.
Click the link, make your voices heard if you want something done about silent filibusters that just gum up the works. I mean, really, we have had enough of this tomfoolery.
I’ve pasted the email I received for your viewing pleasure.

As you know, I like to pass on worthwhile emails and requests to sign petitions on this site. In light of the wave of national disgust with the NFL over calls “scab” referees made in some football games last weekend, I thought I’d share a very interesting entry from my Inbox with you!
Please join with Daily Kos and our partners at Workers’ Voice in petitioning the National Football League to immediately end its lockout of professional, union referees. Continue reading →
Please review the some semi good news I got in my Inbox just the other day! I was born in Pennsylvania, and have tons of family living there, so I am particularly interested in the efforts of Republicans to tamper with the right to vote of so many.
I had the good fortune of running across this post at Daily Kos, and I just had to share on the site, because sometimes we do get some Republican visitors here at LiveNudePolitics…. Now, if they are just looking for nude pictures of an attractive Liberal, how is that my fault? Sometimes they read a post, instead of just looking at kitty pictures!
