Just because the intelligence was bad, doesn't mean that no crime was committed. Because they ignored any intelligence that didn't fit with their gotta-have-a-war agenda.

Republicans still won't admit Bush lied us into war, and liberals are helping them get away with it.

Blames Obama for the consequences of his own stubbornness.  Of course.
 
A man decides to not buy legally mandated health insurance.  He proceeds to have unexpected, very expensive medical bills.  He can't enroll on the exchanges because the 2015 window has closed.  He's unable to work, and would be eligible for Medicaid, but his Republican state legislature declined to participate in the federally funded Medicaid expansion.  So he has nothing and may go blind.

Who does he blame?

a. Himself.  Assuming that someone else would save him in an emergency was selfish and childish.

b. Congressional Republicans from the 1990s who killed single payer health coverage. Single payer would have meant he always had coverage.

c. Congressional Republicans from the 1990s who created the core design of Obamacare.

d. Current Republicans in his state, who blocked a federally funded Medicaid expansion that would have covered him.

e. Obama and Democrats, who bent over backwards to try and ensure this wouldn't happen.

If you guessed "e", you're right. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/health-care/health-care-challenge-blog/article20696283.html

That's why we can't have nice things.  There is a Republican base who, if their Republican representatives literally showed up at their door and kicked the in the genitals, would somehow blame Democrats for their crotch pain.

Texas' GOP governor is sending the Texas State Guard to monitor a military training exercise after right-wing militia alleged it's just a cover for the president's plan to put Texas under martial law.

It appears that the anti-tax nuts in the Heights are back to their old tactics - spreading lies just before the election to confuse people.  Please know the facts - The CHUH Treasurer has been consistently ranked as one of the best in the state, holding the line on costs and using the money they have efficiently.  It's a fact of the completely unconstitutional method of school funding in Ohio that we must keep asking for levies.  Please support the CHUH schools - don't believe the lies told by cynical self-serving people.  The truth about the lies is at http://www.chuh.org/protected/ArticleView.aspx?iid=5YIUB2&dasi=3Y2I

“go ahead and vote for Sanders and Clinton, but that’s all. Spend the rest of your time, energy and money on building militant grassroots activism.”

Is Bernie Sanders a more progressive presidential candidate than Hillary Clinton? Undoubtedly. Will he single-handedly catalyze a united left front in the United States? Probably not.

Question: Sanders self-identifies as a “democratic socialist.” Aren’t people going to think that’s a little extreme?

Answer: This week, the governor of Texas announced he was putting a special watch on U.S. military exercises this summer, due to public speculation that the soldiers might take over the state and confiscate everyone’s guns. Also, the Idaho Legislature recently killed a bill that would have provided federal aid in tracking down deadbeat dads, due to concern that it might involve the use of Shariah law. I do not want to hear you calling Bernie Sanders an extremist.

The irony is palpable

>“Tell me why you’re angry,” Vittert began.

“I’m angry because of everything we go through,” Watson said, “You killed my man Freddie. … You really dragged my man who was already out. You’re shooting people out here for nothing. ... We got a mayor who don’t do shit about it.”

Vittert admonished, “We have to watch the language,” and then Watson translated it, Airplane-like, directly from “jive.” “We have a mayor who isn’t doing anything about it.”

“You’ve obviously had a run-in with the police?” Vittert ask-accused. Sure, Watson said. “They hit me with three bean bags.”

Back in the studio, Megyn Kelly was either incredulous or titillated: “Let’s see the injuries.”

And so, Watson lifted up his shirt to reveal three different bloody wounds, with Vittert’s disembodied and ghostly-white hand pointing helpfully into the frame.

“Oh, wow. There you go, Megyn.”

Tom and his staff are always helpful, and Tom supports the local schools and is their source for music and instruments. A great asset for Cleveland Heights. If he doesn't have it, he'll help you find it. The building is old and the lesson rooms are a little raggedy. So what? The teachers are great and the service is excellent.

They are rightly famous for their sandwiches - but it's the beer selection that keeps me coming back. Dozens of GREAT beers on tap, changed regularly. Stone's Arrogant Bastard is always available, but take some time to look through all the selections. Fantastic, with a lively atmosphere.
