FTA: "The strategy here is simple: Break the spirit. Muddy the waters. Make voting feel onerous and outcomes ambiguous. And make it feel like a natural outgrowth of tedium and bickering, and not a well-funded, well-designed effort. Make us subsist on personality politics rather than principled ones."

I agree with Charles Blow, we should be in a rage. We're heading off a cliff and yet half of us still don't vote.
When will we demand the country we deserve? If we don’t like the path we’re on, we can alter it.

*sigh* We talk about how much we value education, but do we really? No, not at all.

North Dakota's outlier expenditures are offset by the fracking boom destroying their environment and water supplies, by the way.

 Are those figures indicative of a growing popularity of 'Charter schools' ? ...any one answer that question ?

+gvmelbrty rgvmedth I believe I will read the Nevada state constitution. But I'm really tired so I'll just start with Article 1 section 2

the Paramount Allegiance of every citizen is due to the Federal Government in the exercise of all its Constitutional powers as the same have been or may be defined by the Supreme Court of the United States; and no power exists in the people of this or any other State of the Federal Union to dissolve their connection therewith or perform any act tending to impair[,] subvert, or resist the Supreme Authority of the government of the United States.

You were right. It is a good read.

This kind of seizure happens all the time in US drug cases. If the authorities suspect your assets are profits from a crime, they'll seize them and thus deny you the resources needed to defend yourself and get your property back. They've gone as far as seizing fees paid to attorneys, making it really hard to get representation.

FTA: At National Review, Charles C. W. Cooke published a piece overnight, calling Bundy’s actions “indefensible,” no matter how sympathetic he may appear. Cooke added, “Cliven Bundy has been dealt a raw hand by a system that is deaf to his grievances and ham-fisted in its response. But this is a republic, dammit – and those who hope to keep it cannot pick and choose the provisions with which they are willing to deign to comply.”
 
I’m still waiting for one prominent Republican official to say something similar. I have a hunch I’ll be waiting quite a while. Kevin Drum argued persuasively yesterday, “Mainstream conservatives have pandered to this stuff for years because it was convenient, and that’s brought them to where they are today: too scared to stand up to the vigilantes they created and speak the simple truth. They complain endlessly about President Obama’s ‘lawlessness,’ but this is lawlessness.”

"Ham fisted response"? He hasn't paid his bills for 20 years! And this is a "ham fisted response"? Try not paying your taxes for 20 years and see what happens. I can't believe how fucking stupid people are these days.

I don't think conservatives defend him, I think other ranchers with millions at state do.

Political pundits and the base of the Republicans from day one is trying make this President look like inept. We know that Bush 43rd lied about the selling of uranium from Niger. Just to hear Bill O'Reilly suggest that Steven Colbert by his Liberal pplitical views is detriment to American society. These individuals forget the wholesale racism which flourished in America. America came to recognize it errors through forced embarrassment to America.

Story

One man web development army
Introduction
I have been doing web development since 1995. It was mostly a steam-powered, punch-card-controlled affair back then.
Bragging rights
Learned one dead language, an archaic form of another and bits of pieces of two modern ones. Forgot them all, then taught myself Perl, HTML, JavaScript & CSS and now Selenium & jQuery. Co-inventor of Testafy (http://testafy.com) and the PBehave testing language. Nothing I post should be considered to be the views or opinions of anyone else or even myself because sometimes I post stuff just for the lulz.
Education
  • Boston University
    Classical Languages and Literature, 1991 - 1995
Great centrally-located coffee shop. Wide variety of coffees available and the house blend actually tastes like coffee should, unlike the weak or burnt varieties featured at the national chains. Nice window seats to people watch, too.
