The Best and Worst of Politics ( and a few other things ) in 2013... this could be a pretty long post!

OUR LIST OF; a few things we could have done without...

The Ted Cruz comic book!

Ted Cruz (are you sensing a pattern?)

The Government shutdown.

The antics of Miley Cyrus.

Anything said by either Sara Palin or Donald Trump.

Rand Paul's opinions on so many things.

The totally unacceptable roll out of the Affordable Care Act website, not to be confused with the law itself.

OUR LIST OF; a few things that should have been done...

Immigration reform;

Expanded back ground checks for gun sales and closing the loop holes in sales over the internet and at gun shows; NO, not taking away anyone's guns!

Passing a farm bill (one that does not include gutting food stamps for those who need them.)

Extension of unemployment benefits.

Raising the minimum wage.

Breaking up the big banks;
( record profits!)

Officially holding Wall Street accountable for their actions.

Fixing the backlog at the VA so veterans can get their benefits in a reasonable amount of time.

OUR LIST OF; a few under or unreported stories we think you should know about...

Voting rights/Redistricting/Gerrymandering;
Pasadena, Texas is the epitome of what the gutting of the voting rights act by the Supreme Court and  redistricting/ gerrymandering are doing to one of the most basic aspects of democracy...

What's in the medicine you are taking and what medical companies are getting away with that can kill you;

Genetically modified food;

What student loans are doing to future generations;

OUR LIST OF; a few of the best things of 2013...

The new Pope...this guy is cool!(can you say that about the Pope?)

Texas state senator, Wendy Davis; for her filibuster for woman's rights.

Elizabeth Warren for winning her seat in the senate.

Harry Reid for finally doing something about the filibuster;
The Supreme courts ruling on DOMA.


We started our blog and have met some of the nicest people and pets anyone could hope to meet!

  1. We don't follow American politics much but we are so with you on some of them.
    Have a serene Sunday and enjoy some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. I think we would have better luck if we start by spaying and neutering all of the politicians!

  3. MOL, we think that Brian is on the right track, for sure!

  6. I totally agree with you on the Miley Cyrus thing! You and I are on opposite sides of the political fence, but it is great that you at least have an opinion. That isn't something I can say about a lot of people. Knowing what you believe is very important.
    I've nominated you for the Sunshine Award ! Stop by my blog and pick it up any time.

  7. Nice list Noodle; we totally support Brian's proposition.

    Happy New Year!!!!!!!

  8. Good to read other opinions. One of the great thing about the USA is that we can express our opinions regardless of whether they are in agreement with one another.
