For one, the FCC has Democrat support for its effort to regulate the internet. Mainly the Dems would like you to believe that they opposed the Net Neutrality rules with which the FCC wanted to regulate the cable and phone companies. That’s not really the case, and while you are busy with snow and holidays, job or job hunting, the push for more government control is taking place.
Even the extension of the Bush Tax Cuts (meaning your taxes will remain the same for two more years) was packed with Democrat spending, and a compromise to extend the unemployment funding.

Purchase 30 pieces of silver (rounds or coins) from your favorite metals dealer. Do it as an individual or group.

It is the will of Obama. Pelosi says ‘Thank God’ the senate bill is not like the house bill. Sebelius explains the accounting trick which allows circumvention of the Hyde Amendment (forbidding federal funding of abortion) to her feminazi friends:
