Lowes is in trouble after caving to a fringe religious group and pulling its ads from “All American Muslim.” Here’s the ad they pulled:
The Philadelphia Inquirer published this editorial about SB 732 and it’s attack on women’s reproductive rights.
In the “this is getting old” category yet another GOP elected official who was all for “family values” turns out to be gay.
While Congress is spending $662 billion for war this year it’s cutting heating assistance for the poor. These are immoral decisions.
Tea Party Patriot Mark Meckler, arrested in New York for trying to take a Glock pistol on a flight to LA, fled from reporters like a deer a searchlight.
Congress caved to the hostage takers once again passing a two month extension of payroll tax cuts in exchange for the Keystone XL pipeline. Another extremely bad decision for only a 2 month extension? I hope they aren’t wondering why the public gives them only a 13% approval rating.
State Rep. Josh Shapiro was elected as Montgomery County Commissioner and is leaving the State House. We’ll miss him greatly there but he was frustrated at the toxic atmosphere there and the inability to achieve real reform. Here is his farewell address to that body:

In the age of the internet and the world’s information at your fingertips it’s inexcusable not to research things.

Just in case you thought I was kidding about the return of debtor’s prisons the other day here’s more about the issue.
I’ve held off writing about the downed super secret drone captured by Iran until more information was available. One of two scenarios seemed possible: we violated Iranian sovereignty with a spy mission and got caught or Iran hacked into the software and took the drone. Now it seems the second scenario is what happened. It’s very bad either way.
Tom Corbett’s involvement in the Penn State scandal isn’t going away. Interestingly he and former President Graham Spanier battled earlier this year over the Governor’s massive budget cuts to higher education. Corbett was gleeful when Spanier went down but he may be following closely behind. The bad press for Corbett is growing. Buzz Bissinger, a common sports pundit appearing frequently on TV since the Sandusky scandal erupted, has this new analysis.
Rick Perry is copying the corrupt Philly pols and their DROP pension giveaway. He’s now collecting his pension ($90,000/year) while still serving as Governor. It’s called double dipping at the public trough. So much for his fiscal credentials.
The NYPD storm troopers rioting against peaceful OWS protesters were really stupid too. One posted his feelings on facebook.
Here’s a discussion by Chris Hedges and Michael Moore for your perusal:
