Second Russian post this week...

New maintainer
 I am going to now actively maintain the community. It seems that we have a couple of Russians posting quite a bit without much discussion going on so Im going to monitor that situation and see what needs to be done. I am assuming most on here do not read or speak Russian so It would be nice if it went back to English. 

Introducing DISCLOSE 2012: Holding Big-Money Accountable

We are proud to announce the launch of DISCLOSE 2012:

The campaign to hold big-money special interests accountable.

The Supreme Court's "Citizens United" decision unleashed unlimited, anonymous corporate spending on campaigns nationwide. The California DISCLOSE Act shines a light on the major funders of all political advertisements. It requires the top funders to clearly identify themselves as supporters of the campaign's message.

Do you want to know who is really behind those commercials during election season?

Iowa legalizes gay marriage
gaga} colorsmear
Unanimous ruling: Iowa marriage no longer between one man, one woman

"The Iowa Supreme Court this morning upheld a Polk County judge’s 2007 ruling that marriage should not be limited to one man and one woman.

The ruling, viewed nationally and at home as a victory for the gay rights movement and a setback for social conservatives, means Iowa’s 5,800 gay couples can legally marry in Iowa beginning April 24.

There are no residency rules for marriage in Iowa, so the rule would apply to any couple who wanted to travel to Iowa."
