When Republicans talk about morality, they talk about God and redemption. But they don’t mention the immorality of one in five of American children being impoverished, of cuts in food stamps that are causing many to go hungry, and of reduced education funding that’s condemning them to lousy schools.

Hyderabad was founded in 1591 by the Sultan of Golkonda. He was a man in love, and so naturally named an entire city after his beloved — his wife Bhagamati. He had bestowed on her the title Hyder Mahal, hence the name of the city. The city was even built on the site of her childhood village. So romantic!

House Hopefuls in G.O.P. Seek Rightward Shift

oinonio:

"One nominee proposed reclassifying single parenthood as child abuse. Another suggested that four “blood moons” would herald “world-changing, shaking-type events” and said Islam was not a religion but a “complete geopolitical structure” unworthy of tax exemption.
