Well, here you go. It's even worse than I thought if you listen to what he says at the end. So brace yourself.

Liberal Homer has very selective memory. He also believes that his Superman can jump tall buildings in a single bound.

Once anyone holds a position of power after being elected, it is the media's job and only purpose to hold all of them - every single one of them - accountable on behalf of the folks.
Not pick a side to root for. Once they did that, conservative commentators became an absolute necessity.
Whenever the Liberal Media is obligated to hold the Jerk-In-Chief's feet to the fire, they try desperately to first put out the fire.

<quoted text>It wasn't all McCain's "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran," or R'Money's using Breitbart opinions as facts and getting called on them, it's the obvious intolerance in his 47% comments that were caught on camera for all the world to hear (perhaps the corporate moochers should have remembered to tip their wait staff well), that spelled the beginning of the end of the Rethuglican party for the next generation.(BTW, Obama was talking about "stops" not states and had a slip of the tongue, but tin-foil hat Beck was going with his Islam conspiracy theories at the time and you just swallowed the whole thing--debunked emails and all. I feel sorry for you. Really.)
You once got spanked for impersonating a Girl Scout and here you are impersonating an adult on Topix.

You like that spanking thing, eh?

Can you believe our Governor sent a letter to the President re the sequestration? What happened?? Boehner wouldn't take his calls?
What a dope.
Have you been Google Earthing again?
Yep.

Scott is in a tough spot, he needs to distance himself from the TeaParty if he wants to gain a second term but he doesn't quite understand how to do it.

His worst nightmare is having to face another Republican in a primary.

I haven't heard any news about potential (D) candidates__Crist maybe, seems like he's lost most of his popularity. Alex Sink's husband died a few months back, I think she's finished with politics.

How wonderful!
In the mean time, the Democrats can
- whittle away at our freedoms
- increase the debt so we end up like Greece with 25% unemployment
- ruin our health care
- destroy our military
- continue to cover up blunders like the terrorism in Benghazi
- don't stand by our our people overseas
- continue killing innocent civilians with drones
- continue getting into wars like Libya where the end result hurts our national interest
- increase the strength of Al Queda bu killing innocent civilians with drones
- continue to deceive the American people like Gibbs just admitted about being told not to admit the drone program
- lower the standard of living for all Americans
- foster hate & division in America
- try to receruit more moron commies like you

She was a lacklustre candidate in my opinion. We sure could use a governor with some personality; I can't imagine Scott getting re elected, even though he's throwing money at teachers and education and accepted the Obamacare money.

"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which Our government was founded."

Abraham Lincoln (1809-65), U.S. President.
Speech, 18 Dec. 1840, to Illinois House of Representatives

Until Congressional politicians reform Cannabis laws or ANY UnConstitutional 'law', jury nullification is one of the only ways to avoid imposing cruel "mandatory minimum" penalties on Cannabis users, growers and sellers who don't deserve to go to prison.

So, if you ever serve on a jury where the defendant is accused of a Cannabis crime, don't forget about jury nullification. Tell the other jurors you don't have to convict, even if all the evidence points to guilt, if you don't agree with the application of the 'law' in this instance. And if you can't swing your peers to your way of thinking, at least you can cause the jury to return a hung verdict.

-----

"Jurors should acquit, even against the judge's instruction... if exercising their judgement with discretion and honesty they have a clear conviction the charge of the court is wrong." ~ Alexander Hamilton, 1804

"It is not only the juror's right, but his duty to find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgement and conscience, though in direct opposition to the instruction of the court." ~ John Adams, 1771
