Rick Perry was just indicted in Texas by a jury of his peers for abuse of power and coercion. So who is up next for 2016?????
Which are words I never thought I would write on my blog, but on the militarization of the police, Reynolds has actually been consistently against the practice since the Bush years. Today he proposes a change in law, which would "provide that police can have only weapons that a civilian could lawfully possess, since they’re civilians themselves"
David Gregory has now publicly said he is out as host of Meet the Press and Chuck Todd is in. All I can say is UGHHHHHHH! An improvement this is not.
Jay Nixon, the governor of Missouri, has announced he is relieving St. Louis County police of their duties in Ferguson. No word yet on if that means state or federal officers will take over, but this is a huge, unheard of step.
Blake Seylhouwer, the owner of Jani-King and a Cincinnati talk radio host shot his wife with a shotgun during an argument yesterday. Seylhouwer has been a Cincinnatian for only two years. Before that he lived in Texas, where he donated $100,000 to Rick Perry's 2012 presidential campaign.
Only the lowest life form can take the death of Robin Williams and turn it into something political. Lucky for us that life form has a name, and it's Rush Limbaugh, the leader of the Republican Party.
Remember all the "Cochran campaign paid black voters to vote" stuff a couple of months ago? It was being pushed hard by the wingnut sites and they even had a witness, Stevie Fielder. Well now Fielder is saying that was all a lie, for which he was paid to do by the McDaniel campaign. It's now gotten so bad that Mississippi's Attorney General is investigating. This race could be over in the near future, but the story is just beginning.
When President Obama got Osama bin Laden, the right started crying that Bush wasn't given credit. When ISIS started their latest attacks in Iraq, the right doesn't want to hear anything about Bush having some blame in that. These are the things that make you stop and say "WHAT THE FUCK?????"
Eric Cantor previously vowed to complete his session before having to leave Congress. Now he is resigning and asking Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe to hold a special election for his replacement. Yes, Eric Cantor is such a sorry loser that he can't even bring his sorry ass to work for the 27 remaining days in the House legislative calendar this year, and he's one of the closest in proximity to DC. And because of this utter laziness, he expects the people of Virginia to pay for a special election, when they still will have to hold a regular election in November. Oh and of course this won't affect Cantor's pension or perks. Talk about the people of entitlement. This man exemplifies it.
John Boehner has totally lost control of his House. Today he couldn't bring the immigration bill to a vote and just a bit ago, Rep. Don Young was caught on camera twisting the arm of a staffer, who was simply trying to redirect the Alaska Republican to the proper door.
In order to file a lawsuit you must be able to prove damage to your self, or standing. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) filed a lawsuit against Obamacare last year. Yesterday it was thrown out on the basis of a lack of standing. Many have argued that Boehner's lawsuit against the President also lacks standing, so could his be next?
The right would like you to believe that Executive Orders and spying on Americans didn't exist until January 20, 2009. Those of us that respect history know differently, and right here is a single example of both - spying on Americans through Executive Order. That order was issued in 1981, just weeks after the hero of the right, Ronald Reagan, took office.
