Last week Bryan Fischer announced his support for laws banning profanity and blasphemy and followed that up over the weekend with a Tweet calling for laws banning fornication and adultery: And this got me thinking about what life in America would look like if Bryan Fischer got his way: Muslims would be banned from serving in the armed forces. Muslims would be banned from immigrating to the United States. Muslims citizens would be charged with treason and deported. Muslims would be banned from building mosques. Muslims would be denied all First Amendment protections.... MORE

Republicans are back with more smear-ridden criticism of the new health care reform law’s attempt to streamline burgeoning Medicare costs, regenerating the discredited “death panel” smear. The law established the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) to replace the ineffectual Medicare Payment Advisory Commission and to “recommend policies to Congress to help Medicare provide better care at lower costs.” Even though the board is “specifically prohibited by law from recommending any policies that ration care” and its members and decisions are...
