TSA delays of 3 hrs for a 2hr flight

Anybody following the media coverage of public backlash against airport delays due to slow security screening?

In highly predictable fashion, all the usual sources are blaming TSA for incompetence and saying things like the public is to blame for bringing so many carry-on bags to be screened, and the airlines are to blame for charging fees to check bags, which leads to more passengers taking bags through security as carry-ons to avoid having to check the bags.

How about we blame Congress for failing to provide sufficient funding for the task that TSA has been presented with????

Which candidate would give this speech?


We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace--business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering.

They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.

Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me--and I welcome their hatred.



The CEO's of large multinations may like Hillary. They ain't gonna like me. And Wall Street is going to like me even less.

Alabama Sorority Prints T-Shirts with Racist Image

So what else is new?

Here's a pic of this chapter of the sorority from the interwebz:

Extremely diverse, wouldn't you say?

They claim that they didn't notice the image of a black man eating a watermelon on the t-shirt.

The T-shirts depicted a map of Alabama marked with an array of images including an illustration of a black man holding a slice of watermelon to his mouth in the map's southeast corner. University spokesman Philip Poole said the shirts were ordered as keepsakes for the sorority's spring formal.

"In selecting the T-shirt, we failed to focus on the specific images in the design," Lauren Hammond, president of the sorority's Samford chapter, said in a statement issued through its national headquarters Friday. "We are horrified by our oversight. Had we recognized what the design details depicted, we would never have purchased the shirts."

Here's my question: Why was somebody even selling t-shirts like that in the first place?

Will Cruz just go away now?

Please, please, please!

(And take Carly with you!)

Or is he going to be a petulant backside continuing to terrorize the American people from the US Senate for the next 2 years?

I'm praying Lyin' Ted loses his Senate seat when he is up for re-election.

Hey, Megyn Kelly--Looks like Trump may get the last laugh

Whatever else anyone may say about Trump, he's twisted Fox News around his little finger.

Larry Wilmore is bombing--It's painful to watch

The White House correspondents' dinner.

Most of his jokes are really unfunny.

And he's following Obama, who was hilarious.
