To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

Five Counterintuitive Ways to Use Procrastination and Become Productive
If you're reading this, there's probably something else you should be doing. You're familiar with the procrastinator's routine—the sinking feeling that grows stronger as a deadline gets closer, the guilt you can't shake and, finally, the full-on panic that takes hold and energizes you enough to get everything done just in the nick of time. It's that last stage we're going to talk about today. You can stop fighting procrastination and make it work for you instead by taking that panic and channeling it into amazing amounts of productivity. More »

My Thom Hartmann TV Appearance on Sproul/RNC Voter Registration Fraud Scandal and Chuck Todd/Think Progress 'Conspiracy Theories'
I was on Thom Hartmann's Big Picture TV show last night to discuss the arrest of the RNC operative in VA last week after he was caught destroying voter registration forms, and revealing that he was working for notorious GOP operative (and paid Romney consultant) Nathan Sproul's Strategic Allied Consulting, which the RNC had claimed [...]
Tuesday Morning Debate Reaction
The final 2012 Presidential debate was a decisive “victory” for President Obama on both style and substance. Romney’s tack to the center left him with no other arguments than to invoke the resolve fairy and to call for a large increase in defense spending. The dominant narrative among the pundit class seems to be that Obama won and that Romney did well enough for the debate not to matter. I’ve dec
How I'm Following the Polling for the Last Two Weeks
Take it as a recommendation or not; this is what I'm doing right now.First: I have tabs open to HuffPollster's national average, HuffPollster's big map, and RCP's national average.   I've been insanely, irrationally hitting refresh on the HuffPollster national average...well, often enough to know that the lead flipped at least four times yesterday. Only once twice so far today. Why those three
Can Obama Save Us From A Koch Brothers Takeover?
It was almost as an afterthought that we appended an embed of the Robert Greenwald film, Koch Bros Exposed onto the end of a late Sunday night post about Romney and plutocracy. I can't emphasize enough how important it is for every swing state voter to see this movie before November 6... so here it is again. If you have concerns-- or doubts-- about the direction Romney would take this country sho

Pediatricians enter the organic debate. Media miss the boat.
Yesterday the American Academy of Pediatrics weighed in on organic food. They found that "an organic diet reduces children's exposure to pesticides," and highlighted studies linking pesticides with many of the childhood health harms included in PAN's recent report, A Generation in Jeopardy. Unfortunately, media coverage of the report has been all over the map. And given the power

The Tories can still win in 2015.
According to media consensus, David Cameron and the Conservatives had a bad first week back following the end of the conference season.  Any uplift from the decision to stop the extradition of Gary McKinnon to the US was swiftly curtailed by the belated resignation of Andrew Mitchell, just 48 hours after Ed Miliband had said the chief whip was "toast".  Add in the passing frenzy of Georg

America's Crazy Uncle in the Attic
Something has been bothering me about the presidential polls. Well, a lot of things. But one in particular has stirred up my mathematical senses.President Obama has been ahead in a enough states to give him a wide electoral vote victory, but the popular vote across the country has been close. For these reasons, the punditocracy has been concern trolling about a possible disparity in the election

Third Debate Shows Scumney Isn't Ready For Prime Time
What seemed to emerge clearly from Monday night's final presidential debate between incumbent Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Scumney -- er, Romney, may have to get used to that if the bozo really gets elected -- is that he doesn't seem ready for prime time. Oh, he was very well-coached for all three encounters, and did well enough each time. An overscholarly Obama held him to a bo
"LIBERAL" The 21st Century "N" Word
By @TomBales1 To those of you who base your entire political agenda on anger and hate, I would like to ask you once and for all just what your definition of Liberalism is.  You post your little Facebook entries and you carry your little misspelled signs proudly at the Tea Party's hate rallies by which you decry the very existence of Liberalism but really... do you even know what a Liberal is?
Four Years Closer to a Nuke?
By @TedFrier When Mitt Romney said the Iranians are "four years closer" to building a nuke by way of accusing the President of being weak and feckless in promoting the exact same foreign policy Romney supports, it was another one of those weasel phrases for which Romney and the Republicans are famous. If in those four years Romney is so concerned about the Iranians have only advanced one step in
Romney Fails Commander-in-Chief Test
By @TedFrier A fly on the wall as the two families mingled pleasantly onstage following the third and final presidential debate in Boca Raton last night might have overheard President Obama asking Mitt Romney if the Republican challenger would like to become his press secretary.

It Is Always The Right Time To Take Responsibility For Your Future—Ann Johnson Working Hard For Your Vote
Here’s a picture I took today of Texas House District 134 candidate Ann Johnson. I told Ms. Johnson I’d hand out leaflets for her on Thursday at the early voting place. It is always the right time to take responsibility for our future. In this election, I’ve donated to President Obama and Green nominee Jill Stein, blogged, made my case on Facebook, and attended events for Stein and Ohio Senator S
Busy Day
Above you see a picture of the water’s edge in Galveston, Texas. I took this picture a few weeks back. The water’s edge is where a lot of stuff began when whatever creature it was left the water to live on the land. I had a friend say a few days ago that “Everyday is a do-over.” I like that thought. The water is both where we came from and where we go back to look for a fresh start. The past and

Fighting Voter Suppression
On October 2, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson blocked the state’s voter ID law  from being put into effect for this November’s election. He was concerned the law would disenfranchise voters—a possibility the state couldn’t deny. But Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, the lead sponsor of the bill and a member of the rightwing American Legislative Exchange Council—the force behind many such
Meet ‘Me-Too’ Mitt
At the conclusion of last night’s last presidential debate, which focused on foreign policy, noted foreign-policy wonk and former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin appeared on Fox News to deliver her expert analysis. “There were so many untruths spewed by Obama tonight. Unfortunately, Romney just didn’t have time to answer them all,” Palin opined, adding that she sure does wis
The Blue-Green Jobs That Romney Ignores
Forty years ago, the Clean Water Act went into effect, having been passed by Congress with overwhelming bipartisan support, an outcome that would be unthinkable in today's political climate. Although since weakened in the courts and sapped of funding by Republicans, the Act has dramatically cleaned up a resource that many analysts argue will be more critical than oil in the coming decades: o
Will Romney Really Create 12 Million Jobs? Ask Sensata Workers
Mitt Romney hasn’t responded yet to any of the letters sent to him by workers at Sensata Technologies, a car sensor manufacturer in Freeport, Ill. owned by Bain Capital. Romney doesn’t run Bain anymore, but he still reaps millions from the strip-and-flip firm each year. The Sensata workers want Romney to intervene with Bain and stop it from shipping their jobs to China. He won’t. Because the b

Possible Hate Attack on Black Woman Roils Louisiana Town
Update: Late Tuesday afternoon, authorities in Louisiana said Sharmeka Moffitt, a 20-year-old African-American woman, set herself on fire in a park in Winnsboro, La., Sunday night and faked what appeared to be a brutal, racially motivated hate crime. The alleged attack rattled the small city of 5,000 residents, dredging up memories of the state’s racially [...]
WorldNetDaily Now Peddling White Nationalism
WorldNetDaily (WND) says it opposes racism in any form. That’s why the online publication has added a series of articles on “black mob violence” to its usual fare of antigovernment conspiracy theories, gay-bashing, anti-Muslim propaganda, and End Times prophecy. The series, which began in mid-2012, is penned exclusively for WND by one Colin Flaherty, who according [...]
