Oh Em Gee! They also clearly staged the photo! I can't believe that they would digitally modify a comical family photo like that! This is some cutting edge reporting you're doing here TGT. Keep speaking truth to power. Or whatever you call that. I expect a full report on their Christmas cards from the last 5 years.

I saw a picture of bookie and he's not white so of course there's no way he could be a racist.

Why not post some more climbing pics, bookworm? You still climb with that cute gal?

You really are starting to sound like a psycho. How 'bout a reminder that you are a climber like the rest of us?

Philo- you forgot one big one:

Massive cuts in mental health funding which resulted in a sharp rise in homelessness, emergency room visits, food stamps and the prison population.

Area Man Passionate Defender Of What He Imagines Constitution To Be

ESCONDIDO, CA—Spurred by an administration he believes to be guilty of numerous transgressions, self-described American patriot Kyle Mortensen, 47, is a vehement defender of ideas he seems to think are enshrined in the U.S. Constitution and principles that brave men have fought and died for solely in his head.

Kyle Mortensen would gladly give his life to protect what he says is the Constitution's very clear stance against birth control.

"Our very way of life is under siege," said Mortensen, whose understanding of the Constitution derives not from a close reading of the document but from talk-show pundits, books by television personalities, and the limitless expanse of his own colorful imagination. "It's time for true Americans to stand up and protect the values that make us who we are."

According to Mortensen—an otherwise mild-mannered husband, father, and small-business owner—the most serious threat to his fanciful version of the 222-year-old Constitution is the attempt by far-left "traitors" to strip it of its religious foundation.

"Right there in the preamble, the authors make their priorities clear: 'one nation under God,'" said Mortensen, attributing to the Constitution a line from the Pledge of Allegiance, which itself did not include any reference to a deity until 1954. "Well, there's a reason they put that right at the top."

"Men like Madison and Jefferson were moved by the ideals of Christianity, and wanted the United States to reflect those values as a Christian nation," continued Mortensen, referring to the "Father of the Constitution," James Madison, considered by many historians to be an atheist, and Thomas Jefferson, an Enlightenment-era thinker who rejected the divinity of Christ and was in France at the time the document was written. "The words on the page speak for themselves."

According to sources who have read the nation's charter, the U.S. Constitution and its 27 amendments do not contain the word "God" or "Christ."

Mortensen said his admiration for the loose assemblage of vague half-notions he calls the Constitution has only grown over time. He believes that each detail he has pulled from thin air—from prohibitions on sodomy and flag-burning, to mandatory crackdowns on immigrants, to the right of citizens not to have their hard-earned income confiscated in the form of taxes—has contributed to making it the best framework for governance "since the Ten Commandments."

"And let's not forget that when the Constitution was ratified it brought freedom to every single American," Mortensen said.

Virginia Delegate (state representative) and Congressional candidate Bob Marshall asserted that disabled children are God's punishment for abortion in 2010.

“Nature takes its vengeance on subsequent children. It’s a special punishment, Christians would suggest.”




Republicans continue to paint the ACA as "putting government between doctors and patients" while they pass laws that actually puts government between doctors and patients. Here we watch Representative Chuck Gatschenberger explain why getting an abortion is like buying a car as he defends the Missouri plan to force women to get a transvaginal ultrasound and a "72 hour waiting period" before getting an abortion.

#GOP2014 isn't sounding much different than #GOP2012.

Upcoming book analyzing money in politics finds that the average American has very little sway in policy creation while rich people have quite a bit: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/monkey-cage/wp/2014/04/08/rich-people-rule/

Average citizens have “little or no independent influence” on the policy-making process? This must be an overstatement of Gilens’s and Page’s findings, no?

Alas, no. In their primary statistical analysis, the collective preferences of ordinary citizens had only a negligible estimated effect on policy outcomes, while the collective preferences of “economic elites” (roughly proxied by citizens at the 90th percentile of the income distribution) were 15 times as important. “Mass-based interest groups” mattered, too, but only about half as much as business interest groups — and the preferences of those public interest groups were only weakly correlated (.12) with the preferences of the public as measured in opinion surveys.

Note that this is a statistical analysis of influence, not just a "we think some thoughts" book.

http://www.politicususa.com/2014/04/09/obamacare-rejection-buries-rick-scott-charlie-crist-holds-49-42-lead-florida.html

Either madbolter or snowmass was saying a couple days ago that the "smart liberals are running from Obama's failed policies." When I asked for specific examples he started insulting me. Meanwhile, in real life, Crist is solidifying his lead for Florida Governor in part because of his stance FOR Obamacare and despite him being a creepy shitheel.

Former governor Charlie Crist has been one of the few Democrats running on Obamacare, and it is paying off. Crist has built a seven point lead over incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida.

A PPP poll of Florida found that Gov. Rick Scott’s refusal to expand Medicaid is hurting him with voters in the state. Democrat Charlie Crist has openly campaigned on the virtues of the ACA, and voters are responding positively. Crist leads Rick Scott 49%-42%.

Respondents were asked if they thought that Florida should have accepted the federal Obamacare funding to expand Medicaid and by a margin of 58%-33% they said that Scott should have taken the money. Those polled said that they were more likely to support Crist because he supports expanding Medicaid by a spread of 42%-33% with 24% saying that it made no difference to them. On the other hand, Scott’s refusal to expand Medicaid made 42% of those polled less likely to vote for him. Only 31% said Scott’s refusal of the ACA money made them more likely to vote for him.
