Razer Raygun Says: ♥ Sharing IS Caring! ♥
Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.
[After the commentary, John Prine. You all know THIS song so let's sing along! Courtesy of the respective artists and KPIG Radio Freedom California, Earth.]
» Maybe he had a relative who fought in an African CIA army and was looking for their grave? An Ethiopian citizen found in the cemetery near the Pentagon has been detained as a potential terrorist despite the fact that he's apparently not on any list, was doing nothing particularly suspicious, and his car parked nearby contained no evidence of the 'tools of terror'.
» Hostility... What does that mean? The Obama administration's brief to congress regarding why our involvement in the war on Libya doesn't require War Powers action claims the president's actions are legal because there are (allegedly) "...no US troops in harm's way." and the UN resolution plus NATO's approval are 'good to go' reasons as well. A number of congress members on both sides of the aisle believe that's utter bullshit and have filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration for bypassing congress.
» Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner of New York has resigned his seat in Congress. He loses his $174,000 salary but gets to keep his congressional health and retirement benefits. A special election to fill his seat will be scheduled.
In retrospect let it be duly noted that hypocrisy is the "Congressional Way":
Republicans living in glass brothels shouldn't cast stones at lewd tweets» We almost lost Missouri - A nuclear power plant in that state is now surrounded by flood waters. Fortunately the plant was non-operational when the externally supplied power for the fuel rod cooling operation went out, or it could have been Fukushima/Missouri.
In addition to right-wing media, GOP House Majority leader Eric Cantor has called for Weiner's resignation. In a statement he said, I don't condone his activity, I think he should resign. Keep in mind that this is the same Eric Cantor who was asked in July 2009 by Fox News' Chris Wallace if Republican South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford should resign after admitting to an extramarital affair and using state funds for a trip to Argentina to visit his mistress?" Cantor said, Well in the instance of the people of South Carolina -- it is up to them. So it's up to them -- the voters in South Carolina in the case of Sanford, but Weiner should resign? By the way, did we mention that Sanford also "lied" to cover his getaway with the mistress, saying he was hiking on the Appalachian trails. Eric Cantor and not a single Republican said that Sanford should resign.
So this writer along with most fair-minded Americans are growing tired of the hypocrisy coming from the "family values" Republican Party as if we have suddenly forgotten:
Pete Sessions (R-TX) who held fundraisers at a strip club in Vegas called Forty Deuce.
The RNC using party funds to pay rich, young Republican donors to attend an evening at Voyeur, a West Hollywood bondage-themed club with topless strippers and waitresses.
Republican Senator David Vitter who was re-elected and remains a U.S. senator after his number showed up on a list of the "D.C. Madam" who owned a high-end house of prostitution.
If the Republicans are going to be consistent, why are they not asking for David Vitter's resignation... isn't soliciting a prostitute illegal?
At the end of the day, what we have here... [Continue reading @ Examiner.com]
» California governor Jerry Brown has vetoed the budget delivered by the state legislature claiming that without an election to extend the current tax arrangement it would not be possible to balance the budget.
» Greece will not go broke as France and Germany pledge $170 billion dollars in bailout funds to keep the Greek government solvent as it attempts to pull it's national economy out of a $130 billion hole.
(...and try not to let your government kill too many 'dusky natives' in the process OK?)
