The Wisconsin legislature is finalizing a bill to close ten Department of Motor Vehicle centers located in Democratic districts within the state. The money saved will be used to extend operating hours at DMV centers in Republican districts.

Let this be inarguable evidence that when Republicans push for voter ID laws, they are 100% talking about voter suppression. This is their end-game, not accountability, the ability to stop democrats from voting.
We here at Vans have a bit of a soft spot for Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green, who heads the band City & Colour. Lucky for you guys, City & Colour will be doing a webcast on livestream this Wednesday, July 13th at 7pm ET/4pm PT. Make sure to tune in to catch an acoustic session and live chat with Dallas Green. He’ll be playing songs from his new record “Little Hell.”
If the Republican theories about the economy worked, we would be having a boom right now. We’re told over and over again that if we lower taxes, people will create jobs, and it will trickle down, and it never, ever, ever fucking happens.
