Meghyn Kelly of Fox News, defends the people in the audience that booed at last week’s Republican dedate. This is typical Fox News anchor style bullshit at its finest/worst. Take your pick.
Fox News anchor Meghyn Kelly defended members of last Thursday’s GOP debate audience who booed after watching a video of a gay soldier asking about the don’t ask don’t tell law.
The moment drew widespread attention, and on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden called the booing “reprehensible” during an appearance on “The View.”
Female activist Shaima Ghassaniya was sentenced to 10 lashes, for driving. It is not against Saudi law for a woman to drive, but it is against it by religious edict.
Its time that the Saudi government got its head out of the sand, and start letting women do the same things as men do.
In a small Alabama town, anyone committing a minor offense, will have a choice of going to jail,or going to church. Its unconstitutional to force anyone to go to church, so how the hell is this town’s judge getting away with it. Read it at Nation of Change
Start doing the things you think should be done, and start being what you think society should become. Do you believe in free speech? Then speak freely. Do you love the truth? Then tell it. Do you believe in an open society? Then act in the open. Do you believe in a decent and humane society? Then behave decently and humanely.
Mitt Romney, a Harvard grad, rips into the Harvard faculty lounge. That’s nothing new with him. When he was governor of Massachusetts, he would go around the country, making fun of the state he governed.

Acording to Talking Points Memo Herman Cain won the Florida P5 straw poll.
What does this say about Rick Perry, if this poll means anything.
I do not agree with Justice Scalia. He is wrong with the ruling he gave in 2009, concerning Troy Davis.

Los Angeles Times: The U.S. Supreme Court has halted the execution of a black man convicted of a double murder in Texas 16 years ago after his lawyers contended his sentence was unfair because of a question asked about race during his trial.
Forty-eight-year-old John Buck was scheduled for lethal injection Thursday evening.
At issue was a psychologist’s testimony that black people were more likely to commit violence.
A similar request to block the punishment was made to Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Perry is the Republican frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination and his actions have now come under closer scrutiny.

It didn’t take long for the right to start the Elizabeth Warren Bashing.
In just a matter of hours after Elizabeth Warren Announced that she is running for the Senate in Massachusetts, in 2012. In a Boston Herald column, the writer says:
Who are they to vote for in next year’s Democratic Senate Primary? A woman or a black man? Who wins the victimology sweepstakes this cycle?
He went on to bash gays, Rachel Maddow and (weirdly) nannies.
Judge Raul Vega has ordered to Rep. Joe Walsh (R) to prove he does not owe back child support. He stopped paying his ex-wife in March of 2008. She claims he owes $117,437.00 to her and her three children.

Joe McGinniss’s book on Sarah Palin is finally here. After years of hype, The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin does not disappoint, offering the kinds of salacious allegations you’d expect from a guy who’d moved next door to Palin to write a book about her. Read more…

Interesting post by Talk and Politics, on the special elections in NYC and Nevada.
What the hell has gone wrong, with the way people think? It was damn sickening to read, watch and hear the people in the audience at the Tea Party Republican Debate in Tampa. When CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Ron Paul the question; a person in the hospital that has no insurance, do you just let him die, and the nutty asshole Tea Baggers clapped and thought it was funny.
The same thing last week in Simi Valley, when Brian Williams pointed out that 234 people under Perry’s watch, have been executed including an innocent man in Texas, which leads the nation on the death penalty scorecard, again, the audience clapped, like it was a big joke.
Why isn’t the media calling out on these Bozos for the way they are acting. I’m sure if it was an all Democratic audience, and they clapped and hooted at their candidates, Fox News and Limbaugh would be all over it.
Politics was always dirty, but never this dirty.
Elizabeth Warren will announce she will run for the US Senate on Wednesday.
Look for the right-wingers to start spreading the lies about her.
Only in America can you be Pro-Death Penalty, Pro-War, Pro-Unmanned Drone Bombs, Pro-Nuclear Weapons, Pro-Guns, Pro-Torture, Pro-Land Mines, And still call yourself ‘Pro-Life.’
Now this is disgusting. Major League Baseball, decided not to let the NY Mets wear FDNY & NYPD baseball caps, in honor of the fallen of 9/11. They had former Yankee manager, Joe Torre address it, instead of Bud Selig, who should have been the one to announce the decision not to wear them. Read more…
The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for the various groups of animals.
We are all familiar with a Herd of cows, a Flock of chickens, a School of fish and a gaggle of geese.
However, less widely known is a Pride of lions, a Murder of crows (as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens), an Exaltation of doves and, presumably because they look so wise, a Parliament of owls.
Now consider a group of Baboons. They are the loudest, most dangerous, most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and least intelligent of all primates. And what is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons? Believe it or not …… a Congress!
I guess that pretty much explains things!
You call it joggin’, I call it runnin’ around.

I caught the last 20 minutes of Obama’s jobs speech, and from what I saw and gathered, he’s had enough of Congress’s bullshit. Now if the thick-headed Tea Party led Republicans got that heads out of the sand, and realize that the obstructions that they believe in come to a complete stop, and start doing the job they were elected to do, is to work for the people who put them in office, and not do the work for the big corporations, the banks and their millionaire & billionaire friends.
Watching John Boehner, it looked like he didn’t know whether to cry or shit is pants, or both. Whenever he applauded, it was half heartedley, like he it was a big bother to do it.
