Your buddy Dumbwaiter calls Boehner and other conservative Repugnants of being Democrats, seems you take no issue to that.
Double standard at work here??
Lieberman once was a Democrat. He became an Independent after losing the Democratic Primary. He became more of a Repugnant after that, even being McCain's top pick for VP.
So, if calling Boehner a Democrat is ok with you, you shouldn't have a problem with anyone calling Lieberman a Repugnant, which is what he became.
You have the consistency of Jello.
FYI, yesterday DBWronger said Lindsey Graham was a Democrat.

But the scrutiny specific to a few Southern states was all about race.
Today's urban North is the equivalent of the old South with regard to needing special scrutiny of voting rights.
That's not what she said, she said civil rights law applies only to race.

HEY STUPID! How do you know that abortions have sky rocked since Reo v Wade? They weren't reported prior to that ruling since they were illegal or were simply called something else in medical records like a dilation and curettage. How many women died or had their health and reproductive systems destroyed by back alley abortionists? If you and your ignorant ilk have their way there'll be more Kermit Gosnells and many more women will die.
She is not stupid. You are.

Talking about the law that overturned ban against interracial marriages.
Oh, that wasn't a law, that was SCOTUS ruling in Loving v. Virginia.

And yes, that ruling only applied to interracial marriage however, interestingly enough today, the same argument can be applied to same sex marriage.

It's going to the ISS for testing. The advances in robotic outside the US are enormous. To bad the media here cares more about crap like North West. The dumbing down of the American people is quite sad.

You don't think that the NSA has access to every security camera in the country, public or private, that transmits from one location to another?
NO. The NSA would first have to make a request to a Federal Judge for a warrant to access those security camera recording information. And that's not the only hurdle that the NSA or even an F.B.I. agent would have to jump over to get access to that kind of information. A government agent would have to make a pretty good case before a Federal judge before he'd even consider granting such a request besides the lengthy questioning and caveats that the judge would insist on bringing up.

"Water Levels Fall in Great Lakes, Taking a Toll on Shipping"
"Drought and other factors have created historically low water marks for the Great Lakes, putting the $34 billion Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway shipping industry in peril, a situation that could send ominous ripples throughout the economy.
Water levels in the Great Lakes have been below their long-term averages during the past 14 years, and this winter the water in Lakes Michigan and Huron, the hardest-hit lakes, dropped to record lows, according to the Army Corps of Engineers. Keith Kompoltowicz, the chief of watershed hydrology with the corps’s Detroit district, said that in January “the monthly mean was the lowest ever recorded, going back to 1918.”
While spring rains have helped so far this year, levels in all five Great Lakes are still low by historical standards, so getting through the shallow points in harbors and channels is a tense affair."

Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI), who was a key player in getting the Voting Rights Act legislation renewed in 1982 and 2006, said the Supreme Court may have ruled Tuesday to strike down a critical portion of the act, but the "threat of discrimination still exists" and he will put "partisan politics aide and ensure Americans' most sacred right is protected."

"The Voting Rights Act is vital to America’s commitment to never again permit racial prejudices in the electoral process," Sensenbrenner said in a statement Wednesday. "Section 5 of the Act was a bipartisan effort to rectify past injustices and ensure minorities’ ability to participate in elections, but the threat of discrimination still exists. I am disappointed by the Court’s ruling, but my colleagues and I will work in a bipartisan fashion to update Section 4 to ensure Section 5 can be properly implemented to protect voting rights, especially for minorities. This is going to take time and will require members from both sides of the aisle to put partisan politics aside and ensure Americans’ most sacred right is protected.”
