Darryl Issa says the Judge doesn’t have authority to make her decision. He is a pandering politician. Here is a little background on Issa: Early life – via Wikipedia Issa was born in Cleveland, Ohio, the grandson of Lebanese immigrants. He describes himself as having been "a rotten young kid." Issa dropped out of high school and at 17 enlisted for a three-year tour in the Army. He claims to have served as a bomb disposal technician. Issa further recounted being part of the security entourage for President Nixon during the 1971 World Series, despite Nixon never having attended the event. Issa left the Army nearly two years early after being stripped of his duties as a bomb specialist. A retired Army sergeant claimed that Issa stole a Dodge sedan from an Army post near Pittsburgh in 1971. The sergeant said he recovered the car after confronting and threatening him. Issa denied the allegation and no charges were filed. In 1972, Issa and his brother allegedly stole a red Maserati sports car from a car dealership in Cleveland. He and his brother were indicted for car theft, but the case was dropped. That same year, Issa was convicted in Michigan for possession of an unregistered gun. He received three months probation and paid a $204 fine.

Re the WHCA seat vacated by Helen Thomas:

Please. This is an appeal to the rational side of the political brain. No more FOX. They are a cruel affliction we have, like AIDS, brought upon ourselves. I advise abstainance in their case.

NPR, however, is a socially acceptable alternative.

Giannini made loans to home & business owners when a demolished Frisco was staggering after the 1906 Quake. His investments helped them back to their feet and brought hope, community and energy to a devistated city on the ropes. Where are the Gianninis today?

Giannini made loans to home & business owners when a demolished Frisco was staggering after the 1906 Quake. His investments helped them back to their feet and brought hope, community and energy to a devistated city on the ropes. Where are the Gianninis today? Financial houses and wealthy investors continue to ignore national investment priorities and dump their excess cash into risky, speculative flyers. Speculation on financial derivatives and bets on currency stability do nothing to improve our evolving energy crises, create new community jobs or improve quality of life for the general public. Investors, indifferent to unstable global economic conditions, enjoy exploiting fluctuations as a way to skim money and get out quickly. It’s like national interests & long term investments are too passe.

There’s a plan in place for Afghanistan to review progress against the plan this December, make adjustments & firm up plans to start disengaging in July.

One thing about the ubiquitous obstructionist GOP tactics, they have reinforced the resolve of every offended segment of the Left.

Nov will be the 2nd coming of FDR

The idea that government is the problem is being exploited for political advantage, by politicians who lack moral character. However inappropriate and illogical the tactic might be, it is effective.

The idea that government is the problem is being exploited for political advantage, by politicians who lack moral character. However inappropriate and illogical the tactic might be, it is effective. It wakes up the aimless, disenchanted and confused and puts them into an agitated, ready for action state of mind. Just point them in any direction and turn them loose. They will do something disruptive. This tactic is sinister, intentional and unacceptable. It’s a threat to our stability and security as a nation and a people. We are a socio-economic federal republic complex. We are held together by common purpose, spirit, desire and law. We use government to keep us on track. We are in this together. We are the government. We are not the enemy. We are the people. If you don’t have something constructive to say, shut up and listen.

The last 4 decades have seen a wholesale perversion of the public trust. It has been and is being orchestrated by business and political interests, who are primarily concerned with amassing money and power. We live at a time of confining social structures, high density population and material excess. We live, right or wrongly, at a time of over stressed critical services and evaporating essential life resources. In order to survive, in an increasingly hostile world, we need to stop the hyperbole and start designing our future. We have been making incredibly faulty decisions long enough.

Intentional distortion of information for political gain is a crime. When an asshole like Breitbart can suck the energy and integrity out of constructive political discourse, it’s time to put him out of business. The 1st amendment wasn’t meant to shield liars.

#Haiti – Lest we forget. Children cry uncontrollably, stomachs empty from days of no food or comfort. Women plea for help and men, broken with loss of self-esteem, look down in shame. Years of neglect and insufferable isolation are amplified by hopeless abandon and exploitation. And, when it seem (full details)
