Even the economic policies of Ronald Reagan fail when compared to the economic policies of Barack Obama in a new FOX poll. Even more interesting in that same poll is how FOX’s attempt to steer the answers even failed.
Sure the laws against things like marijuana add to it and should be changed, but we also got schools using the courts as a form of discipline now. Here’s a story from a local district here in Ohio:
Two Mason juveniles have been charged for their involvement in sending and possessing nude photos over their cell phones, a practice known as "sexting," according to the Warren County Prosecutor's Office.
Both juveniles are charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor of the first degree, according to the prosecutor's office. The third juvenile under investigation will not face criminal charges.
"This is a disturbing and serious trend that we are seeing," Warren County Prosecutor Rachel Hutzel said in a statement issued late this afternoon, March 4. "Frankly, there should be a better law in place to handle these situations, but there is not.
So how did this become a police matter? Here:
On Wednesday, Feb. 25, a teacher at Mason High School took the device from the boy, who was using it during class, according to School Resource Officer Troy Nelson.
The teacher turned the phone over to an assistant principal, who inadvertently viewed a nude photo of a 15-year-old Mason girl, Nelson said. "Usually, they're not going to go through the phone, but message after message kept coming in, so they went to turn it off," Nelson said. "When you flipped it open to turn it off, one of the images was visible right there."
After the administrator turned in the phone, police found the nude image of a second Mason girl, also 15, Nelson said. That image was captured by the boy's phone, he said.
Former White House political adviser Karl Rove and counsel Harriet Miers have agreed to face questions from Congress about allegations of improper political influence in the Justice Department, the House Judiciary Committee announced Wednesday.
Both will give depositions to investigators from the committee, and claims of privilege will be "significantly limited," according to a statement from the committee.
Rove and Miers had been resisting congressional subpoenas about the matter since the House Judiciary Committee began trying to force Miers to testify in 2006. The Bush White House resisted, claiming she could not be compelled to appear. But a federal judge in Washington ruled that the former Bush administration officials had no grounds to invoke executive privilege in the case.
The committee, led by Rep. John Conyers, D-Michigan, has been investigating claims that Rove and his White House allies fired U.S. attorneys for political reasons and prosecuted officials whom they saw as opponents. Conyers called the agreement "a victory for the separation of powers and congressional oversight."
I can only guess they got some legal advice that made them decide it’s time to follow the law.
Who ever thought the head of the RNC would be such a rogue?
It’s ironic that Steele insisted he was “not backing down,” because directly following Steele’s original statement regarding primary challenges, the RNC walked back his statement in a message to Politico’s Ben Smith, insisting it “has no interest in getting involved in primaries.”
So the head of the RNC is saying one thing and the actual RNC is saying another? Wow do they have a problem.
Check out this latest Rasmussen headline:
Just 11% of Republicans Say Limbaugh Is Their Party’s Leader
Now check out the wording:
“he says jump and they say how high”. What poll in history can you remember phrasing a question like that, let alone flat out calling him the “leader of the party”.
When you look at this crappy attempt to push poll by Rasmussen, then see that 11% of Republicans and almost 1/3 of the total respondents still agree then there is no doubt – Rush Limbaugh is running the Republican party.
The Conservative/Rush Limbaugh movement basis their foundation upon smaller government. Well according to a new NBC/WSJ poll, that isn’t the view of a majority of the public (link – pdf):
Also this poll has Obama’s approval continuing to rise. Enjoying that rise with Obama is Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party. Not enjoying it – John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and the Republican Party. All the noise and complaining sure has paid of for the right – hasn’t it?
I wake up and turn on the TV. There is Morning Joe and Chuck Todd going on about Michael Steele. Todd says that Steele has to be careful or he will risk being as ineffective a party leader as Howard Dean.
Howard Dean’s 50 state strategy is highly attributed to massive wins by Democrats in 2006 and 2008. I bet Steele would just love to have both cycles under his tenure become pickups for his party.
I still don’t know why so many people, especially some lefty bloggers, act like Todd is some great political mind. He is a total hack and this isn’t the first time I pointed that out.
Such cute fuckers. Take Robert Stacy McCain. Here’s a main that goes out of his way to avoid the work fuck:
Hell, no! Why the f--- should I lay off a reporter when that g--d--- piece of s--- David Brooks is collecting $300,000 a year to produce two columns of nothingness a week? You can fire me if you want to, or I'll just quit right here and now, because I'll be g--d----d if I'll lay off one more reporter as long as that useless motherf----r David Brook is on the payroll!
But yet he doesn’t mind having things like this on his blog:
And this isn’t an ad. It’s something he actually added. One can only guess that this epitome of right wing blogs sits there looking at this picture and thinking “wow I would just love to f___ her all night. She knows she wants my g_d c_ck.”. Now I wonder if he says that quote literally, or does he fill in the blanks?
Oh – and why does Malkin send people to this guys blog showing that picture? I guess this is part of the whole “family values” thing they push so hard. She does warn them about the profanity (err – blanks), but not about the half naked lady on his site. Maybe Malkin is also saying that same quote that McCain is.
Limbaugh proves in an email exchange with Greg Sergeant that he is one very close minded individual. He won’t even hypothesis if Obama’s economic policies will work – instead insisting that they will fail. That kind of thinking is what the Republican party is holding up as their mantra now. They bow to it and believe in it, and if any Republican dare goes against it then they must apologize to the leader of the RNC – Rush Limbaugh.
Again – the Republicans are so screwed.
