With Ted Cruz announcing his candidacy to be our next President today, perhaps it's time the media starts questioning his experience, or lack there of. Ask how someone, who has only been in the Senate for two years, feels they have what it takes to become President. Or, to put it another way, pound away at the same question they did in 2007, when another Senator with only two years in declared his candidacy - Barack Obama.
Roy Moore, the chief justice of Alabama is a hero to the right, especially given his current attempts at defying the federal courts when it comes to gay marriage. His son was arrested on Sunday night for possession of marijuana and prescription tranquilizers. Now I don't agree with arresting people over marijuana, but what I find interesting in this story is the latest example of Republican responsibility See, it turns out that Caleb has decided it's not his fault he got busted, but rather a "liberal plot to destroy his family". So are we to believe that Alabama is some liberal bastion, to the point even local police are in line with any possible conspiracy to go after the right? I'm not holding my breath.
They are dropping fast in the city of Ferguson. Monday it was the municipal judge. Yesterday it was the city manager. Today we find out that the police chief, who in my opinion should have been axed last summer for his handling of the Michael Brown shooting, is now set to resign.
More fallout from the scathing DOJ report on racial problems in the City of Ferguson as John Shaw, the city manager, abruptly resigns.
Following the damming report by the DOJ last week on systematic racism in Ferguson, Missouri, the state's supreme court has taken the extraordinary step of taking over all municipal cases, and the local judge finds himself out of a job.
In yet another shocking, unprecedented attempt to undermine the President of the United States, the Senate GOP has penned an open letter to Iran, warning them that any deal can be revoked by Congress. These guys aren't going to rest until we get into the bloodiest war yet. It really is a sickness with them.
Sharknado 3 will be out this year and with a big twist. Unlike 1 & 2, where the sharks were the villains, this time around we have two new super-villains:
"Shark Tank" star and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban will play the President of the United States in "Sharknado 3."
Care to venture a guess on his Veep? Try political commentator Ann Coulter.
This sounds like a big turn-around in plot line, where the sharks can become the saviors of man-kind by eating the leadership of the U.S.
Enjoy this Sesame Street parody of House of Cards until the big release of Season 3 of the actual show this Friday.
President Obama has just issued his third veto since becoming President, and the first one in almost five years. The bill the met its fate via the powerful veto pen? Keystone Pipeline. Way to go Mr. President!
Why on earth USA Today gives a weekly column to this asshat is beyond me. It takes a bit to get to his subtle point, but towards the end:
So when the five-day wonder of questioning Barack Obama's patriotism is over, perhaps we should address another question: How patriotic is the electorate? And how long can we survive as a nation if the answer is "not very"? And we should proceed from there.
And that's how the right thinks about the majority of this country - that we are unpatriotic dolts, voting for a man to destroy this country.
With all the talk of the Wisconsin governor being the GOP hopeful in 2016, perhaps we should ask ourselves if we really want another leader who will put our country into more debt to give the rich another tax cut. Even more, do we want one who will just flat our not pay our debtors to pay for these tax cuts, as Scott Walker is doing? If this is the definition of responsibility to the GOP, I'll take the other any day of the week.
Silence comes from the pro-life crowd with this horrific story out of Georgia, where a cop beat a pregnant woman so hard she had a miscarriage, for simply not liking her tone. I guess #fetuslivesmatter only applies when a bunch of politicians can actually tell a woman what to do with her body.
