Barack Obama, our next President

HOUSTON -– A Texas Court of Appeals in Austin has overturned the conviction of former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, attorney Brian Wice told KVUE sister station KHOU 11 News.
In documents released early Thursday, the court said the evidence in the case was "legally insufficient to sustain DeLay’s convictions."
The court said all judgments against DeLay were reversed, and the former congressman was formally acquitted.
DeLay was convicted in 2010 for his alleged role in a scheme to influence Texas elections. Since then he has been praying for vindication but also preparing for the possibility of imprisonment.
DeLay was sentenced to three years in prison, but stayed a free man while his case made its way through the appellate process.
For both DeLay and his critics, the process was frustratingly slow, due in part to some of the appeals court justices in Austin recusing themselves as well as DeLay’s successful effort to have a judge on the panel removed because of anti-Republican comments she made.
DeLay, 66, was found guilty of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering for helping illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.
Oh shucks, he learned to dance fer nuthin...
Another criminal stays free from prosecution in Texas. Que sorpresa.

Truly in Lord of the Flies Territory

Yesterday the news was that Ted Cruz had essentially rolled the GOP House leadership and gotten them to get behind his quixotic and colonic effort to shutdown the government over Obamacare. But that was yesterday. They say revolutions eat their children. But this is more the children eating the children. Or something. DC Republicans are in some sort of infinite regression or feedback loop in which no Big Cheese can ascend the hill without people turning on him as not a real conservative and deserving of destruction. Now House Tea Partiers have decided that Cruz himself may not really be gung-ho enough to kill Obamacare.

The trigger was Cruz's statement today that the firebrands in the Senate simply don't have the votes to force the matter. So it will come down to the House to push the ship of state onto the glorious sandbar of shutdown.

This is simple math that everyone knows. But in a sign of the kind of magical thinking now animating many Washington Republicans, top House folks now seem to feel Cruz is abandoning the fight that he did so much to provoke.

Again from CNN ...

The reaction from House Republicans and senior GOP leadership aides to Cruz's latest statement on the matter was swift and angry, both about Cruz's lack of confidence in a vote and his urging of the House to "stand firm."

"They said nothing is impossible if you fight hard enough, and the minute the House announces the vote, they give up the fight? It's crazy," one senior GOP leadership aide told CNN.

"They should walk the walk," the aide said, predicting it would backfire on the conservative senators.

Another senior GOP leadership aide took a shot at Cruz declining to say whether he would filibuster the bill, telling CNN, "It is disappointing to see that Wendy Davis has more balls than Ted Cruz," in reference to the state senate Democrat who filibustered an abortion bill in the Texas legislature over the summer.

That first quote really brought home for me where we are. But he said nothing is impossible if you fight hard enough! I mean, it's like 'Hey, you said unicorns could be real if you believed hard enough!' All summer Cruz has been pumping his supporters up on the idea that the country is hungry for a government shutdown to kill Obamacare and if everyone is committed enough President Obama might agree to defund his signature piece of legislation.

So he's created this monster he can't control. Only he was the monster the last crew created. I can't keep up.

But as the Bible says, the Popcorn shall passeth.

Female anchor confronts Ron Paul over plan for women to quit work en masse and home school

BBC anchor Katy Kay on Thursday asked former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) if his libertarian plan to have 20 percent of children home schooled made sense because so many women would have to drop out of the work force, but the former congressman insisted that even a woman living at a shelter with two jobs could find a way to do it if she worked hard enough.

During an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to promote his book, The School Revolution, Paul said he wanted to offer families an education alternative that emphasized “the importance of the individual versus, you know, everybody coming together.”

Putin is not positioning himself as an ally with the likes of Iran and Syria by supplying them weapons because he has no interest in the Middle East for personal gain.
There is a vacuum in the Middle East because of Obama's failed community organizational skills and dysfunctional confrontational skills. Putin has been more than happy to fill that void.
Let's hope the entire world doesn't one day regret demonizing the United States for attempting to bring some measure of stability in this region under Bush when Putin becomes the new world leader and calls the shots with a nuclear Iran and Syria still having chemical weapons and standing beside him.
"there is a vacuum in the Middle East"; does it pick up sand?

<quoted text> Another idiot. Why raise it then? What would be the point?
Look, I understand that logic & reasoning just don't live in your brain but...

Raising your credit limit does not make you owe more money.

Spending does.

Congress already OK'd spending for this year & when they did it, they knew it would create more debt than there was room for under the debt limit.

Therefore, they already approved crossing the debt ceiling.

As to why raise it, the question should be why have it.

It serves no purpose. Except for maybe getting our credit rating dropped when investors learn there are those in Congress will to default on our obligations to play political games.

A well done job by our President.
"real dumb"
Hey crap for brains. We have troops in Germany, in England, in Okinawa, and numerous other countries. Despite your denial there are American troops in Iraq. We have troops in Afghanistan and will have for at least another year and a half. We bombed Libya and what was the effect, a feeling of victory for president nobama and in all probability a muslim brotherhood government. president nobama bowed down to putin in Syria, to date there is no solution, putin played nobama like a yoyo. We have no business butting into the affairs of Syria or Libya, America is not and should not be the worlds policeman. The Benghazi debacle is a prime example of president nobama's foul up, commanders who were on the ground in the area said help could have been sent and American lives could have been saved. But in your mind nobama knows all, those idiots whose job it is to react to those situations are simple dolts. Unfortunately under president nobama America has became a laughing stock on the world stage.

Under the Affordable Care Act, insurance plans offered in the new marketplaces will have to cover a core set of services called “essential health benefits.” Included on the list of 10 benefits are mental-health and substance-use disorder services, which include behavioral health treatment, counseling and psychotherapy. Specifically, as part of what’s considered preventive services, plans will also cover alcohol-misuse screening and counseling, depression screening for adults and adolescents, domestic and interpersonal violence screening for women, and behavioral assessments for children.
Here are two important points about mental-health coverage under Obamacare. First, the coverage for behavioral health services must be generally comparable with coverage for medical and surgical care. Second, plans offered in the marketplace have to cover preventive services without charging customers a co-payment or coinsurance even if you haven’t met your yearly deductible. But the services have to be delivered by a network provider.
Anyone who claims to want to improve mental health access as a response to gun violence AND opposes Obamacare is a lying weasel. Make that a hypocritical lying weasel.

These are all services that will never be necessary for people who act responsibly in their lives, yet they are forced to pay higher premiums to provide these services to irresponsible bums.
