You know what I always find ironic - when Conservatives were making a big deal about Obama's citizenship and legitimacy to run for President, so many liberals were saying that the conservatives should just drop it and stop being divisive and support the president and honor his election. Yet now Cruz has just barely announced his intent to run, and many of the same people are all over Cruz for his legitimacy.

I never got caught up in being opposed to Obama because of his citizenship credentials. I never got hung up over Benghazi with Hillary. I had friends who wouldn't let it drop. The Clinton Lewinski scandal is another example, possibly the classic. These type of issues, every time I see them, partisan wedge issues - if you take a side, you end up looking like a hypocritical partisan hack.

If it looks like a witch hunt and it acts like a witch hunt and it smells like a witch hunt... try not to step in it if you don't want something that stinks on your shoe that you can't scrape off. This is political circus - and the WORST thing it exposes is the people who are outraged when it is THEIR guy being persecuted but who are ready to grab the pitchforks and torches when it is the OTHER guy that they're going to string up.

Van's claims sound credible to me. When the Republicans won the mid-terms, all the liberals were proclaiming how it would be a total witch-hunt over Benghazi... and that never came. I honestly found that kind of odd at the time.

We'll see if you're right and it becomes a firestorm once Hillary officially declares, Mark. I don't think it'll happen. There might be a couple of half-hearted attempts to stoke that fire by a few extremists on the right - but I think the GOP is mostly going to ignore it.

If they do - the question is... WHY... is it that they don't want to get caught up in dirty politics again - or is there something else that is making this one like a virgin wearing a necklace of Garlic to a vampire...

Remember, it is green reduction for us - so that they can have a huge carbon footprint doing the important things that are necessary. ;)
 
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama took two separate jets to two airports just 28 miles apart on the same day just hours apart.

Something I've thought about making for over a decade but thought there was some law to prevent it.

Good. More of this.
 
Microsoft, Again, Removes Fake Apps From Windows Store - Spring cleaning? Perfect time for it. Microsoft have given the Windows Store another round of cleaning, removing several fake and low quality apps along the way. As a result, the total number of apps in the store dropped significantly last week.

A panel discusses the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the Department of Justice Report.

I think that is what caused it to turn into this. The media irresponsibly fed fuel into an already simmering, boiling situation - the Administrative office took a position that encouraged that reaction. If there was a problem it could have been addressed without causing that much destruction, damage, and let's face it, this didn't ultimately bring races closer together in America - it has driven a stronger wedge between us. That isn't Ferguson's fault it is the fault of the way the media and our politicians responded and fed the mechanisms of race baiting.

Ultimately, the fact that the city decided to explode into this outrage over Michael Brown - when there are no doubt FAR more appropriate martyrs to illustrate official abuse in that city - discredits the "Black Lives Matter" movement more than it assists it.

If you're going to riot, at least do it over someone who fucking DESERVES it.

Wait, wireless mesh networking stones?

Remember when we told you last year about Firechat, which is a wireless mesh networking app that lets you connect without a connection? The app was used in protests around the world when authorities cut off Internet access.

Well now the company behind FireChat, called Open Garden, is making a weird new product called Greenstones.

Do you think it is just a coincidence that +Google named this version "Lollipop" and it sucks?

+Donovan Colbert it seems like Google used animations to hide lag which just uses more processing power which in turn introduces more lag.
