Harrisburg One Hundred Day Rally

Last night, the annual Correspondence Dinner was held in DC. I’ve always enjoyed watching this event because humor is not only a big part of my life but I’ve always judged people by their give and take.
Of course, Donald wasn’t there. Had he been there, he would have been subject to some “humor” that he might not have appreciated.

The Teacher Wars

I’ve just read a fascinating review of Dana Goldstein’s new book, “The Teacher Wars: A History of America’s Most Embattled Profession.” As we continue to wrestle with issues related to Common Core standards, high-stakes testing, and teacher tenure, this looks like a book we should all add to our reading lists.

What follows are portraits of 151 people physically wounded or killed in the rampages of 2012. In addition to the victims of this year’s seven mass …

Romney a National (and International) Disgrace – Part II

Michael Cohen (NY Daily News): Romney’s reprehensible reaction to the violence in Libya and Egypt ….. A couple of days ago, I wrote here at the Rumble that Mitt Romney was one of the worst national politicians I’d ever seen.

I spoke too soon; it’s even worse than I thought. His reaction to the violence in Egypt and Libya over a film mocking the religious beliefs of Muslims is truly one of the most brain-dead political acts that I’ve ever witnessed – and it speaks volumes …

Hypocrite Paul Ryan Quietly Requested Obamacare Cash

Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan is barnstorming the country, promising to repeal every provision of the Affordable Care Act if the Romney-Ryan ticket is elected. But a letter he wrote to the Obama administration may undermine this message.

On December 10, 2010, Ryan penned a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services to recommend a grant application for the Kenosha Community Health Center, Inc to develop a new facility in Racine, Wisconsin, an area within Ryan’s district. “The proposed new facility, the Belle City …
