Back in Black GOP rallying the base in the base

I know I am not the only one seeing race baiting. I can not be the only one seeing a desperate GOP attempting to use smoke and mirrors of race to get votes. It is sad that the GOP is stuck in an era where people in America were stuck on race. Today Americans are stuck on the economy and what trickled down from the Reagan years. It is up to real progressives to keep the narrative on the failed policies that have put our nation into such peril. Newt and Santorum are throwbacks to a time long gone in America. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/07/opinion/blow-the-gops-black-people-platform.html Links http://www.theroot.com/views/why-rick-santorum-isn-t-racist http://newsone.com/nation/tjstarr/rick-santorum-black-welfare-denies-blah/ http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/08/opinion/sunday/dowd-the-grating-santorum.html http://www.mediaite.com/tv/rick-santorum-to-john-king-i-didnt-say-black-people-i-said-blah-people/ http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2012/01/08/400175/black-man-confronts-gingrich-food-stamps/?mobile=nc http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57353438-503544/gingrich-singles-out-blacks-in-food-stamp-remark/ http://politic365.com/2012/01/07/newt-gingrich-has-a-thing-for-welfare-queens/

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.
