Krugman was particularly amazing today: 
Tough talk from Trump, Christie and Jeb seems to fool an awful lot of people.

+Daniel Ahlert What it takes is educated voters and  Republicans will do everything they can to prevent that!  I agree w/+Daniel Ahlert,  FOX is a HUGE part of the problem.

For the first time since 2010, members of the military will be seeing a pay raise courtesy of President Obama -- but there's nary a peep from the "pro-troop" Republicans.

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - Anonymous from Facebook

My letter is below.
 
Dear all politicians,

If you don't live here, you'll never know just how bad it is.  Democrats here are as focused on money, banning drugs, etc. as Republicans everywhere else, and Republicans and other parties barely exist.  It's a one party system not unlike China's, with rash legal decisions not unlike Russia's, and allows cruel treatment to its prisoners not unlike North Korea's.

I'll happily prove all of this to you whenever you'd like, as a quick Google search shows my state breaks basic United Nations criteria.  Either fix this problem, cut us off from the rest of the US, or just plain leave the UN.  Otherwise, death will ride on a red, white, and blue horse and sever the legs of those who don't bow down.

Sincerely,
The righteous
How the Empire State created such a toxic (and criminal) political culture.

+orlando cordero +Valkyrie they're more worried about their pockets than workers'. The only way to make them change is boycotting their stores, sadly many are still going there without a care.

Rickey Thompson started a drug court to start treating offenders and stop imprisoning them. Then he says officials quit sending him offenders altogether.

I love the outrage - really I do because nothing more important going on in the world!! Nice to live in a country where changing the name of a mountain causes more outrage from politicians  then 2 people killed on live TV and hours later a officer gunned down in cold blood... but by all mean tell me more about this anger and rage you have because the president renamed a friggin rock!  

Note to the GOP - the state of Alaska actually wants the  renaming and we know you are all about power to the state and not the Federal government - right?
Republicans are blasting President Barack Obama's decision to rename America's tallest mountain.

▶ SCOTUS  - 
 
                a dramatic--perhaps unprecedented--win
,,, told the court that the government could not find a single instance in which the justices had allowed someone to remain free after his conviction had been upheld by an appeals court.
,,,“When a sitting state governor secretly receives payments totaling more than $177,000 over two years, in exchange for agreeing to help the payor obtain valuable benefits through the governor’s influence over other state officials, his conduct readily falls outside” the kinds of favors public officials routinely perform, Verrilli argued.
The decision was a dramatic win for the former governor, who lost a lower court appeal.

New Yorker satirist Andy Borowitz nails it: "As the United States’ bridges, roads, and other infrastructure‬ dangerously deteriorate from decades of neglect, there is a mounting sense of urgency that it is time to build a giant wall."

After I wrote this I found out that supposedly some gold fevered miner got to the top and named it for the candidate not the President. So we are basically talking about taking the campaign name away and doing the right name justice.

And rather than get behind him to support him as an alternative to Hillary, members of the party are trying to get Biden to run.  Absurd when he's drawing people to the party. But then, the establishment doesn't like populism when it is not serving them.
