Today’s Video: Who’s Funding the Republicans?

Did you ever wonder who’s behind the funding for the campaigns the Republicans are mounting for the upcoming midterm election? American Crossroads & our old friend Karl Rove, as this video points out… httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gDsBPOkP7g

Feds Want to Crack Your Blackberry

If you’re wondering why Research In Motion (RIM), maker of the Blackberry, was loathe to cooperate with the authorities in Dubai and India when they demanded access to encrypted Blackberry calls, it’s because they knew no matter how little they cracked that door, it would eventually open wide. Need proof? Take a look at Monday’s New York Times in which we learn that the Feds want new regulations to force companies like RIM to design back doors into their offerings to allow easy wiretap access by law enforcement. It’ll be […]

Today’s Video: Poverty in America

This video contains some facts for you to add to your arsenal the next time you need to convince someone who thinks we’re in great financial shape. Warning: don’t watch this if you’re having a bad day or are depressed. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SmIAruRPrc

Today’s Video: The War On Drugs

This video showed up on our Facebook wall today, and we just had to pass it on to you. Truthfully, the biggest drug dealers in America aren’t standing around on street corners trying to corrupt our youth, they’re advertising their wares on television. And they don’t like competition. That’s why are prisons are filled with pot dealers. This video is a promotion for what is evidently a documentary coming up on Showtime, but don’t let that stop you. There’s a lot of truth here. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cefoV_A878

Today’s Video: Palin Plans World Takeover

This way too cute video is a parody of Sarah Palin, Larry King, the music business and politics. Oddly enough, this animated Palin, meant to poke fun, comes off as much more intelligent that the real Sarah we’ve all learned to love to hate. And Larry King, he hasn’t looked this young since… Come to think of it, he’s never looked this young. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IL61unNULE

Tea Party Television on CBS

The ends justify the means. At least that’s the message I’m getting from two new cop shows on CBS, both of which indicate it’s ok for law enforcement to step on every constitutional right, so long as charges stick and society is protected. It’s as if the Strike Team on The Shield is suddenly a shining example of good, effective police work. Friday night, the Tiffany Network premiered Blue Bloods, the new Tom Selleck vehicle. A character driven police drama revolving around a family of New York City cops, the […]

Today’s Video: Oregon Marijuana Activist Speaks on Measure 74

Our position on marijuana is pretty much what NORML believes. The recreational use of marijuana is strictly a private matter. Governments don’t need to know if you use marijuana, and they have absolutely no business keeping you from using it.

Today’s Video: What’s Up With McCain?

We’re not sure exactly what’s happening with John McCain, but we’re increasingly grateful that the voting public had the good sense to not put him in the White House in 2008. We’re hoping that what we’re seeing with McCain is just the bad side of party politics and not some underlying medical problem. No matter how much we disagree with Mr. McCain politically, we’ve come to sort of like him as a human being. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvD52QsCNfs&feature=player_embedded#!

Today’s Video: Tommorow Belongs to the Tea Party?

First watch this famous scene from the movie Cabaret, which needs no explanation: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNMVMNmrqJE&start=20 We were reminded of this scene when we saw the real-life scene from a recent Tea Party rally that follows:

Today’s Video: President Clinton Interviewed

This interview by YouTube shows that Clinton still has a keen insight on the problems facing us. Since an ex-president is no longer shackled by polls, special interests, and the need to be re-elected, we can now hear thoughts that are no longer as filtered through personal political necessity as they were when he was in office. However, Clinton is still concerned with his “legacy,” so his answers can still be self serving. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cm7vrZZLfU&feature=featured
