Worry About Legals

I can’t figure out what perplexes me more, the misinformation everywhere in the media or those who believe it to be true. Take the Hobby Lobby case; as a company that is primarily owned by a religious family, they felt their First Amendment rights were infringed upon by the “Affordable” Care Act...

Stop Labeling and Enjoy

I have been struggling to find a simple way of understanding for myself the concepts of conservative, liberal, and moderation as it relates to our social interactions with each other...

Proposal One & The Public Good

Are you kidding me? Another corporate giveaway with loopholes for large corporations who rule us? Hasn’t our corrupt and worthless governor done enough to raise taxes, provide corporate welfare, unjustly tax pensions, and shut down elected officials with his emergency manager racket...

The Truth About Road Workers

Apparently Mr. Kachadurian did not catch on to the fact that the MDOT Employee Memorial in Clare is a tribute to highway workers who lost their lives building our transportation systems. It was paid for by current and former MDOT employees who likely knew some of these people personally...

Idiotic and Misguided

Start the New Year with cool tunes for a good cause

Kristi Kates - December 27th, 2007
Start The New Year With Cool Tunes For a Good Cause
Promo agency Waxploitation brought together a plethora of musicians around the holidays to put on their fourth benefit auction for the victims of the ongoing conflict in Darfur, with 100% of the auction’s proceeds earmarked for Doctors Without Borders, Oxfam America, and Human Rights Watch. Participants got to bid on such items as signed guitars and other memorabilia from Bloc Party, Gorillaz, The Decemberists, Coldplay, Thievery Corporation, Gnarls Barkley, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Brian Wilson, and plenty of others. This particular auction may be over, but if you still want to help (and get some great tunes to boot), you can snag Waxploitation’s Causes 1 compilation CD, which is downloadable now on iTunes and which includes tracks from Bloc Party, International Noise Conspiracy, David Sylvian, Teargas & Plateglass, and more. Check it out at http://www.waxploitation.com/2007/causes.html...
