Left and right united in opposition to controversial SCOTUS decision - Yahoo! News

Much has been made of late about the hyper-partisan political environment in America. On Tuesday, Sen. Evan Bayh explained his surprising recent decision to leave the Senate by lamenting a "dysfunctional" political system riddled with "brain-dead partisanship."  It seems you'd be hard-pressed to get Republicans and Democrats inside and outside of Washington to agree on anything these days, that if one party publicly stated its intention to add a "puppies are adorable" declaration to its platform, that the other party would immediately launch a series of anti-puppy advertisements.

But it appears that one issue does unite Americans across the political spectrum.

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that the vast majority of Americans are vehemently opposed to a recent Supreme Court ruling that opens the door for corporations, labor unions, and other organizations to spend money directly from their general funds to influence campaigns.

Caprica | Syfy

Caprica is starting to grow on me. When Battlestar Galactica ended and the series set in the same universe was announced I was apprehensive but hopeful that Caprica would be good TV. Now that the long wait is over and then some, I can say that I'm gonna be a regular viewer. Here's to several seasons more.
