40 maps that explain the world Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to.

Declaration Entertainment Back in the summer of 2010, Declaration Entertainment asked for your support to help make the movies you want to see. Now needless to say, feature films are expensive propositions, and despite the fact that we had next to nothing on the shelves when we opened the doors, you took a chance on us and parted with your hard-earned money to support that critical cause: namely, reclaiming the mythology of the country; recasting us and our principles as heroes rather than villains; and dealing with the issues that the liberals in Hollywood will not only not touch, but actively squash at every opportunity.

By a vote of 6-3 The Supreme Court is allowing Texas’ draconian voter ID law to be enforced for this year’s election. According to Scotusblog, this is the first time since 1982, the Supreme Court allowed enforcement of a restrictive voting law after a Federal Court ruled the law is unconstitutional. In a blistering six page dissent Justice Ginsberg, joined by Justices Kagan and Sotomayor said, “The greatest threat to public confidence in elections in this case is the prospect of enforcing a purposefully discriminatory law, one that likely imposes an unconstitutional poll tax and risks denying the right to vote to hundreds of thousands of eligible voters,”
