Confirmed: Our Government Has Criminalized Beauty Products

By: Thursday February 17, 2011 5:50 pm

A year and a half ago, I warned that if you bought certain beauty supplies — hydrogen peroxide and acetone — you might be a terrorism suspect.

I wasn’t sure that New START actually would have died when Sen. Kyl argued today against voting on it during the lame-duck. But this statement from Vice President Biden makes me think it’s lights-out.

The New START treaty is a fundamental part of our relationship with Russia, which has been critical to our ability to supply our troops in Afghanistan and to impose and enforce strong sanctions on the Iranian government.

Shorter John Kyl: Republicans Want Tax Cuts for the Rich; Nevermind the Deficit

By: Monday July 12, 2010 3:35 pm

So Republicans claim they want to eliminate the budget deficits, because deficits are per se a threat to the economy and moral government, and they just cause jobless people to be lazy and cause states to hire too many firemen and police and teachers . . . but the deficit hysterics make an exception for that part of deficits caused by the Bush tax cuts, which are, uh, different.

How Arizona Citizens Should Relieve Themselves

By: Friday March 5, 2010 6:00 pm

It seems Arizona citizens, at least those who drive, are pissed off that their state Department of Transportation is closing rest stops along Arizona highways. They should relieve themselves at the offices of their two elected Senators.
