+Burdel Blunt Yes, 50 years ago the Democrats were the party of racists. Then Johnson came along and goaded them into passing civil rights legislation. Most of the Dems who opposed civil rights left the party and joined the Republican Party. I'm aware of that, thank you.

Yes, Gwyneth Paltrow flubbed the $29/wk food stamp challenge. She also flubbed her facts about SNAP. ow.ly/LXYur
Love or loathe Gwyneth Paltrow, her experiment buying groceries on a food stamp budget stirred up a lot of awareness about the nation’s anti-hunger programs. Which, you know, was kind of the point. Paltrow, a health-conscious actress who prefers to cook with fresh ingredients, accepted a challenge from celebrity chef Mario Batali to live on food stamps for a week and draw attention to the Food Bank for New York City earlier this month. Paltrow sh...

The Sunday round-up: Bernie Sanders is talking 2016 and Loretta Lynch's AG vote stalls over abortion-funding debate. http://ow.ly/LPb5H 
A clause about abortion funding in an otherwise noncontroversial sex trafficking bill has stopped the Senate from voting to confirm President Barack Obama’s nominee for attorney general, Loretta Lynch. On Fox News Sunday, liberal Juan Williams and conservative Karl Rove debated who’s to blame. We’ll get into the clause and the stalemate in a second. But here’s the relevant part of the back-and-forth from Williams and Rove. Rove claimed that Repub...

+SUSAN BRACKETT All the Republicans have to do is remove that amendment about abortion funding they tacked on to the human trafficking bill.  You know, the amendment that has absolutely nothing to do with human trafficking?  Once they do, I'm sure the Dems will be more than happy to pass the bill.

Jeb/Rubio 2016?  Lawrence O'Donnell says Rubio looks like a great VP candidate, but the problem is Jeb Bush can't pick him because the two men are from Florida. Is that true? http://ow.ly/LIz15
The links between Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio have some talking about a Bush/Rubio ticket in 2016. But is it even possible? The day after Rubio announced he was running for president, liberal MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell was already looking ahead to what happens if Rubio’s campaign falls short.

Stories comparing U.S. police shootings in March to police shootings in the United Kingdom since 1900 are based on Wikipedia, and wrong. PunditFact explains how. ow.ly/LEKtI
As the country learned about the shooting death of Walter Scott in North Charleston, S.C., a comparison between police in the United States and the United Kingdom began to spread across the Internet. The liberal website Addicting Info put up a graphic under the headline

Prior to 1776 the monarchy controlled religion. Does anyone think that the 2nd amendment would have made sense to the aristocracy?  The US colonialist fought and died to keep liberty and  freedom sacrosanct (endowed by the creator) to its citizens, and it worked. Its not guns that failed us, its indoctrination and propaganda that failed societies (voters) purpose to governance. But I digress, its (progressive) progress to....? Ask them.

+Jason Allen​ I haven't impugned your sense of logic, I have pointed out that you don't have any logic.

You are inventing a motivation for calling Obama by his middle name out of thin air. There is no logic in that.

Like every other mindless drone, when someone opposes Obama in any way, you cry "racism". That is totally devoid of logic.

And by the way... if you are going to use fancy words, learn to spell them first.

Karl Rove and Juan Williams debate the hold-up of Loretta Lynch's confirmation vote. The trouble has more to do with an abortion-funding related measure than Lynch. http://ow.ly/LPajW

Actually, most of her grandparents were born in the United States.
Hillary Clinton this week became the latest example of a politician flubbing her family’s ancestry while making the case for her presidency. Clinton was speaking at a business roundtable inside an Iowa produce store when she related her personal family heritage to the struggles of undocumented immigrants trying to work in the United States.

A radio ad attacking Sen. Marco Rubio said he "voted to deport" young people known as Dreamers. Rubio did not literally vote to deport young immigrants protected by Obama’s "deferred action for childhood arrivals" program. He voted in favor of an appropriations bill that would have stripped funding from the program. Mostly False.
