You think the system of litigation is getting out of control? Here is a pretty clear admission to violating Trial Rule 11 to gain a nuisance settlement. Sadly, the government is at fault. Until the trial judges, appellate judges and disciplinary commissions start cracking down on this activity, we can a expect higher consumer prices... and more attorneys fees.

The high-level memo, sent by top CFPB civil-rights prosecutors to the bureau’s director and revealed by a House committee, admits their methods for proving discrimination were seriously flawed from the start and had little chance of holding up in court. Yet they figured they could muscle Ally, as well as future defendants, with threats and intimidation.

“Some of the claims being made in this case present issues, such as use of [race] proxying and reliance on the disparate-impact doctrine, that would pose litigation risks meriting serious consideration prior to taking administrative action or filing suit in district court,” the Oct. 7, 2013, memo addressed to CFPB chief Richard Cordray acknowledges.

“Nevertheless,” it added, “Ally may have a powerful incentive to settle the entire matter quickly without engaging in protracted litigation.”

Released at the same time as the Super Bowl, this article will probably not be read by any people. Nice job as a watchdog, media. Heads should roll over this. They won't. My guess is that a promotion will be in order.
Newly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending bus...

Ok, Palin. Here is why I want my money back in the book I bought and you authored. You believe Cruz has no accountability. What about this Trump guy you champion? He was very critical of McCain, you know, the guy who you tried to make your boss in the White House 8 years ago). Trump said that McCain never had done anything to support vets.

Now, I don't like politifact. But us is interesting that Trump never responded to them to clarify his statement or apologize. It was flat out a wrong statement as those giving McCain poor interest group ratings acknowledge. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/jul/21/donald-trump/after-not-war-hero-remark-donald-trump-says-john-m/

And Trump refused to apologize when asked. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/donald-trump-owe-mccain-apology/story?id=32547286

Yes, Sarah. Where is YOUR accountability. Where is YOUR consistency. There is a good reason people like Rep. King think you have been bought and sold.

"What kind of example does paying women less set for our sons and daughters?" Obama asked.

Well, apparently there is an acceptable practice, right Mr. President? The pay gap in his own office is rather telling of the answer. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/male-female-pay-gap-remains-entrenched-at-white-house/2014/07/01/dbc6c088-0155-11e4-8fd0-3a663dfa68ac_story.html
The president's announcement Friday comes on the seventh anniversary of him signing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

Sadly accurate. I have little hope for conservatives going forward if they are backing that clown Trump.

What, too, of her purported admiration for limited government, and of her ostensible hatred of heretics and fakers? The prospect of a mass movement that was earnestly committed to libertarianism was always a little too good to be true, but even I didn’t imagine it ending like this. All that talk of the Constitution and the Declaration; all that energy expended against the cronies and the rent-seekers; all those purifying voter drives — and for what? So that Sarah Palin could add a few zeroes to her bank balance and Donald Trump could go from the purchaser to the bought? Today was the day that Rick Santelli’s famous yelp finally melted into populism and avarice.

Charlie Cooke is rather apocalyptic here. I wish I could disagree.

Apparently the $88 million or so in the last referendum was poorly planned. Not suprising from a school board that said a locker room for sports officials was necessary.

Idiots. Time to replace them.

You can probably expect fewer people on the margins to not seek treatment in order to prevent them from being placed on the list. I believe this will ultimately result in more violence rather than less.
The new rule will be part of the Obama administration's gun package.

One of the reshapes had me thinking: how will this affect veterans who seek care for PTSD? Are these veterans going to be denied a right because of their service? Will it chill enlistment for fear of having that trauma and never being able to own a firearm upon return to civilian life? Will existing vets refuse necessary treatment and make it hard on their families who already sacrificed?

This regulation / rule is just not well thought out. I get the purpose. Those who are a danger should not have guns. But then, who is dangerous? At what point do you draw the line?

Here is a very well reason article that Manning is actually good in the playoffs... not just "not bad"... 
You may have heard that Peyton Manning is a bad playoff quarterback. The only problem is that it's not true.

Saw this in my morning news feed. This is really cool... and probably will be a Disney Exhibit.
Pretty soon, you'll be able to step into the 'Star Wars' universe and roll with BB-8.

Trump is right? So, if Trump is right, then think about the implications of children born overseas to parents that are US citizens. Could they ever be President? So, the child of an American diplomat can never be president if born overseas? The same with missionary children? Children of military families? What about a child "fortunately enough" to be born in international waters.

The only logical conclusion is that all of these children are eligible to be President. If not, good luck finding any families to live overseas for any legitimate and helpful reason... or at least there is no better way to destroy the possibility of a potentially well qualified president because of poor logic in applying the constitution.

Apparently greater minds than me agree with this logic. http://harvardlawreview.org/2015/03/on-the-meaning-of-natural-born-citizen/

I would even go so far as actually looking at the text - in context. The text says natural born citizen, not natural born in the US. A person can be a citizen, but not naturally born that way. The phrase itself just means born a citizen. It is birth status. This is a reasonable interpretation if the whole constitution is read, particularly the phrase following which requires the president to be a citizen at the time of the constitutions founding... thus, people born citizens are natural born citizens regardless of location.

The birthers are simply wrong.
After many years of debate, the meaning of "natural born citizen" remains unsettled.

I am not a huge fan of Palin after today, but... the gaffe on the dept of energy v. Dept of interior is not as bad as Obama' 57 states.
Trump has said he'd be willing to give Palin a position in his cabinet.

Ate lunch at Dhaba Indian Kitchen today after noticing it the other day. I was glad to have stopped in. Great food on the buffet!

Story
Tagline
"No messin' with Sasquatch!"
Introduction
What's with that tagline? Glad you asked. 

Atticus Finch was my profile picture for years.  (I loved the scene with Atticus shooting the rabid dog - "best shot in the county.")  It was time for a little fresher profile picture.  I found an article where a hunter claims to have killed a bigfoot.  It included a photo. "Dead bigfoot.  photo.  How cool is that?"  I knew it had to be the new profile picture.  

Shortly after posting the new profile picture, one of my G+ political friends reminded me of the beef jerky ad. It just seemed apropos. It just had to remain my profile pic and tagline... at least until it gets old.
