Yup, Root's a boob. That he's pimping for Romney pretty much destroys any libertarian cred he never had.
But hey, y'all have had plenty of your own in your respective parties.
Hey, a great update. Not only is the scum Root no longer on the LP national committee but he's come out of the closet:

The GOP Goes in Search of Non-White Faces
By Kristen Hinman
August 15, 2013

Make nice with blacks, Hispanics, and women. That’s been the Republican party’s mantra ever since Mitt Romney’s loss last November, and today at the Republican National Committee’s summer meeting, leaders unveiled one way they’ll make it seem as if they’re following through.

The GOP is launching a “Rising Stars” program, a slate of new spokespeople who have young or non-white or female faces that look nothing like those who make up the party’s current base. Marilinda Garcia is a 30-year-old Hispanic state representative in New Hampshire. T.W. Shannon is the first African American speaker of the Oklahoma House of Representatives and an enrolled member of the Chickasaw Nation. Karin Agness is the founder and president of the Network of enlightened Women (NeW), a conservative organization she launched while in college a decade ago.(OK, there is one white guy, Scott G. Erickson—a San Jose police officer who writes a blog for the Heritage Foundation.)...

... oops. That's the link with the porno pics Ann Dunham made. I'm still looking for those porno films she made. I'm sure I've seen them. You see just about every cheap 8mm B&W porno made when you're in the Marines, you know. ;-)
The photos that were debunked as being fake?

<quoted text> How more 'sensitive position' than FBI Director could there be? J Edger Hoover also believed, like Bradley Manning, that he was a 'woman trapped in a man's body',but it did not hinder the performance of his FBI duties.
I almost feel sorry for Manning; I don't think he ever imagined he'd spend the rest of his life in prison. Should have just gotten a sex change and enjoyed his life. Stupid little man.

All the other financial news is tits up though__sucks to be you!
The market is dropping because of concerns that Bernanke will shut down the money machine, the only thing inflating the bubble.

On the other hand, poor earnings for Walmart are a bad signal for the economy.

A Texas judge says he plans to have a special prosecutor review allegations that Gov. Rick Perry possibly violated the law over a veto that cut funding for public corruption investigators.
Judge Robert Richardson told the Austin-American Statesman ( http://bit.ly/14O2Nlz ) that he expects to appoint a special prosecutor early as next week. Perry's office denies wrongdoing.
The complaint stems from the drunken-driving arrest of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg in April. Her office houses the Public Integrity Unit that is the state's criminal investigative ethics arm.
Perry said he would veto money for the unit if Lehmberg, a Democrat, did not resign. Lehmberg has refused and Perry went on to eliminate $3.7 million in annual state funding.
A watchdog group says the veto threat was an abuse of office.

Having a drunk driver heading the Public Integrity Unit seems like a joke.

Besides, no reason is required for a veto.

No problem if states want to screw their own residents, but such legislation places restrictions on interstate commerce and the freedom of the public to travel freely between states.

Yes, but federal judges picking and choosing which rights are reserved to the states without respect to the Constitution is a problem.
