Affluenza Pay to Play Jail Cells


Contrary to the concept of “equal justice for all,” multiple Southern California cities offer upgraded jail cells with phones, DVD players, and full-sized refrigerators to offenders who can afford the daily rate, reports KNBC.

The family of one Seal Beach man paid over $72,000 for an upgraded cell, away from the general population, while he served 2-years for killing a classmate after crashing his car while driving drunk.

One percenters buy premium comfort even while in jail.

Reich Wing want to block predatory loan protection for troops

WASHINGTON -- House Republicans are pushing legislation to block predatory lending protections for American soldiers, under pressure from the banking lobby.

GOP lawmakers tucked the deregulation item into the National Defense Authorization Act -- a major bill setting the military's funding, along with a number of other controversial terms on Guantanamo Bay and other issues. If the banking item is enacted, it would impose a one-year delay on new Department of Defense rules meant to shield military families from abusive terms on payday loans and other forms of high-interest credit. The bill is being considered Wednesday before the House Armed Services Committee.

Chicken hawk rethugs to the troops: "Be all you can be, and you bankers feel free to put the troops and their families in the poor house." Oh, and pick up your yellow ribbons in our lobby on the way out.

Rubio Tells Iowa Christians Wrong People Are in Charge of America Now



In remarks at the Faith and Freedom summit on Saturday, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) told the assembled masses that America is a great country — but that the “wrong people” are now in charge of it.

With respect to SCOTUS, the Senate, and the House of Representatives Rubio is dead on.

Words said by President Obama on Matthews today which are never ever spoken by Rethugs.

On Hardball the President said with respect to Iran, we will attempt to resolve the problem without more war.

Words never heard under Shrub, or the Klown Car currently running from the Reich wing.

Teabagger Governor Brings Death Panel to AZ


Arizona has passed a bizarre new law in which the state effectively promises that if the Supreme Court destroys its health exchange, it won't build a new one, no matter how badly Arizonans are hurting. […]
So if the Supreme Court rules against Obamacare this year, Arizona will arguably have no legal recourse or backup option to build a new marketplace.

My State of AZ accelerates its war on the poor. People die without health insurance. Sorry, to all you other Red States, with this law, and the recent passage of a law that limits TANF to one year (the most miserly in the Nation) AZ is the most bat shit crazy, teabag loving cesspool in the Country.

Cruz, Rubio, Huckleberry,

Christie, Bush.

for President.

I feel like Rip Van Winkle, except I just awoke in a world where every flim-flam, scammer, teabag, huckster, chicken hawk, one percent, grifter now deems himself fit to serve with his hand on the nuclear button.

Kansas Bans TANF recipients from using benefits for cruises and psychics

When Kansas Governor Sam Brownback (R) returns to his office following the holiday weekend, he is expected to sign a welfare reform bill containing a laundry list of goods and services recipients will not be allowed to spend their benefits on — including going on cruises and paying for psychics.

Families will use their WHOLE 497 dollars per month on the QE2. After they get back from the cruise they go to the casino and buy lottery tickets the psychic told them to buy. More demonizing of the poor by the same SOBs who brought you Raygun's welfare queen BS. Dickens would weep reading these laws. Disgusted I am.

Teabaggers and failed humanity quiz

You ever take one of those multiple miss tests, where to your horror, you are striking out on every question. To me, that describes the humanity test for Teabaggers. Let's see:

In the bagger alternate universe: only takers want health care, wars are endless, unions are for socialists, no reproductive rights for women, spurious religious beliefs trump human rights, you can't vote if you don't have a current picture ID even if you have voted for the past 50 years, global warming is conspiracy concocted by 99 percent of climate scientists, and nobody can spell. They flunk every basic human rights test. What a bunch of MORANS.
