“The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.”
Donovan, who formerly ran the Department Read more [...]

It was back in May of this year that police officers broke into this guy’s house around 5:30 in the morning. Actually, they don’t call it a break-in when it’s police. They call it “serving a search warrant.”

So, this almost-50-year-old Marvin Read more [...]
