Arrest of corporate thug--no, not here

http://news.yahoo.com/collapsed-building-owner-arrested-india-border-092723478.html
snip:
The fugitive owner of an illegally-constructed building that collapsed in Bangladesh in a deadly heap last week was captured Sunday at a border crossing with India by members of a commando force.

snip:
“Fast forward to 2007, and Philip Perry — again, Dick Cheney’s son-in-law — is at the Department of Homeland Security as general counsel. What he managed to do in an appropriations rider is slip in industry friendly language into the bill that moves the task of regulating chemical plants from the Environmental Protection Agency to the Department of Homeland Security. But DHS is given none of the tools it would need to do that.”

Don't know where Cheney's son-in-law is today. You can be sure however, he is not running for the border afraid that he will be held accountable for his vile actions.

Anti-intellectualism, the way of the rethugs

Being anti-fact is nothing new for the teabag and rethug set in our country.

snip:

“Chances are, if you are one of those corporate media-following bone heads who still believe that weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq, or Saddam Hussein blew up the Twin Towers, or Obama is a secret Muslim, or Obama wants to take your guns, or Obama has FEMA prison camps set up for Teabag Republicans, then search no further,” said Papantonio, who is also president of the National Trial Lawyer Association. “You truly are the undereducated, child-like, impressionable, irrational, dangerous cog in America’s political system that puts Democracy most at risk.”

Should have had these words inscribed on the front of Shrub's libery.

Teabagger Perry Outraged About Explosion

Noooo, not about the lack of regulation surrounding the explosion, but about a cartoon that eviscerates his low regulation, no gubermet economic policy.

snip:
The cartoon in Thursday's edition shows Perry crowing that "Business is Booming," flanked by signs saying "Low Tax!" and "`Low Regs!" It's a play on the Republican's often-repeated mantra that his state's low-regulation, business-friendly climate has its economy humming."

Perry doth protest too much.

Cheney's criminal family-another chapter

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/04/25/chris-hayes-explains-how-dick-cheneys-son-in-law-deregulated-chemical-plants/

Cheney's son-in-laws turns our nations chemical plants into IEDs. Par for that family.




Newtown parents inconvenience Senator Collins

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/13/susan-collins-newtown-victims-obama-dinner_n_3076181.html

snip:

“I was 45 minutes late for dinner with the president of the United States," she said. "Everybody was seated when I got there, because I spent time talking to the parents and the family members of those who were killed at Newtown. I told them I had a dinner with the president but that I was deliberately being late.

Collins inconvenienced for 45 minutes. Parents inconvenienced for the rest of their deceased children's lives.

Just another reminder why I hate republicans.



Donahue Speaks the Absolute Truth

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/04/08/phil-donahue-bush-used-other-peoples-kids-to-prove-hes-tough/

snip:

Donahue had some particularly harsh words for former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney, who both pushed for the Iraq war.

“These are the guys who can’t wait to prove their tough and use other people’s kids to make the case,” he remarked. “The more you examine this, the more you are just outraged by the hypocrisy

Chickenhawks will fight to the last drop of someone else's blood.

Filibuster Cowards and Gun Proposals

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/09/cbs-news-gop-gun-control-filibuster-interview_n_3043997.html


snip:

"We asked all 14 Republican senators for an interview about their filibuster threat, but none of them were available,"

[/bRethugs showing themselves to be the spineless, gutless, poltroons they are.


Rethug intransigence will kill Americans

Many countries don't have the resources to care for it's citizens, and that's a terrible situation.

In our country we have the resources but refuse to spend them on our own citizens--that is down right evil.

Debt Ceiling Deadenders

Rethugs and Teabaggers are wrapping themselves in debt ceiling dynamite prepared to blow up the economy and downgrade the U.S. credit rating, again.

snip:

"But House Republicans have already said they would be looking for a deal to cut a dollar of spending for every dollar increase in the debt ceiling. That sets up a fight with Democrats, who will likely push for a clean extension that does not require spending cuts."

Ahh, the joy of living in Teabagistan.

Broke, too bad, go directly to jail

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/04/05/aclu-accuses-ohio-courts-of-enacting-debtors-prisons/

snip:
“Today across Ohio, municipalities routinely imprison those who are unable to pay fines and court costs despite a 1983 United States Supreme Court decision declaring this practice to be a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution,” the ACLU’s report said."

America today--the poor get the jail house, the rich get the bail out.
