Reid calls Harry Reid a liar

First, Harry Reid calls ALL people making claims of hardships due to the Obamacare Law are LIARS

#action =share

Yep, he boldly stated it as a fact. I don't know what happen between this nasty tirade and the next video-maybe a email box full of more horror stories, but now we have Harry Reid on tape saying anyone who said he called them liars are liars

Harry you just called your self a LIAR. Doesn't this fool knows that every time he steps on the floor he is being taped?

Remember Leland Yee- the anti-gun /gun trafficking state senator arrested by the FBI last week?

It appears in CA you can use campaign funds for legal defense.

"More than half a million dollars that donors intended to support suspended state Sen. Leland Yee’s (D) now defunct campaign for California Secretary of State may now be available for the scandal-ensnared politician to fund his legal defense.

Jay Wierenga, spokesman for the California Fair Political Practices Commission, told the San Francisco Chronicle that the fundraised money is fair game for Yee’s use following his arrest Wednesday on corruption and firearm trafficking charges.

"The Political Reform Act is relatively silent on whether you can transfer the money (from a campaign account),” Wierenga said,“but it appears you can."

Most of Yee's campaign funds are coming from unions and Facebook.

Now they are paying for someone engaged in gun trafficking to defend himself.

awww... poor Duke. Like typical reich whiners, they say one thing, but try to do others in secret.

This is what happens when a company no longer has political support and is placed on a level field.... they can't play well with others!

"Duke Energy wants citizens group out of ash action
Associated Press
By MITCH WEISS 6 hours ago

CHARLOTTE, N.C.(AP)— Duke Energy is asking a judge to prevent citizens groups from taking part in any enforcement action that would make the company clean up nearly three dozen coal ash pits across North Carolina.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources filed a complaint against Duke last year. Several citizens groups got involved in the case, saying the waste dumps polluted groundwater.

But Duke filed a motion Monday to remove the citizens' groups from the case.

The company said the groups have an "independent right" to file claims and seek relief. But they are "prohibited from expanding this enforcement action beyond the claims asserted and relief sought by" the state environmental agency.

Duke did not immediately respond to request for comment Tuesday.

The company also filed motions in response to the state's enforcement action, denying allegations in the complaint.

Drew Elliot, a spokesman for the state regulatory agency, said he couldn't comment about Duke's action.

"We're back to a period of very actively litigation on the matter, and we will have to stick with what we said in our lawsuits," he said.

But Frank Holleman, a senior attorney with the Southern Environmental Law Center, said Duke's motion runs counter to what the company has been saying since a Feb. 2 massive coal ash spill at Duke's plant in Eden, which coated 70 miles of the Dan River in toxic sludge.

"What Duke's CEO has been saying publicly is they accept responsibility. Duke officials have said they are better than this, that they want to do the right thing for the state and they want to take action to protect our water resources. But instead of cleaning up, what they've done is lawyer up. They have filed a legal document in court denying any legal liability whatsoever," he said.

Holleman said Duke is taking the position that community groups should not play any role in the case.

"This is contrary to the spirit of what Duke is saying ... that it wants to work with local communities to clean up the site and clean up our natural resources," he said.

This is the company's latest filing. Duke recently asked a judge to shield its records from North Carolina regulators and environmental groups while a federal criminal probe is ongoing....."

I think Kerry may be aiming for another run here again for Senator and is distancing himself from this admin.

Then again -he could just be saying what he thinks

Savings and loan figure Charles Keating dies at 90

By BOB CHRISTIE
Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP)-- Charles H. Keating Jr., the notorious financier who served prison time and was disgraced for his role in the costliest savings and loan failure of the 1980s, has died. He was 90.

A person with direct knowledge of the death confirmed on Tuesday that Keating had died but didn't provide further details. The person wasn't authorized to release the information and spoke on condition of anonymity.

When Keating's Phoenix-based home construction company, American Continental Corp., bought Lincoln Savings & Loan in 1984, the multimillionaire elevated its worth from $1.1 billion to $5.5 billion in a four-year period.

But his financial empire crumbled with state and federal convictions for defrauding investors. Keating allegedly bilked Lincoln customers by selling them $200 million of unsecured "junk" bonds. They became worthless when Keating's company became bankrupt.

The thrift's collapse cost taxpayers $2.6 billion and tarnished the reputations of five senators who became known as the "Keating Five." One of them was Republican U.S Sen. John McCain of Arizona, and the scandal re-entered the spotlight during the 2008 presidential campaign...."

The notion of freedom of choice just drives you crazy, little brown shirt reichtard, doesn't it?
Wrong again dumbass! I support the freedom of those who choose to use contraception to plan their families, a freedom that Hobby Lobby seeks to deny their employees. Here's a little tidbit that demonstrates Hobby Lobby's and the Green family's hypocrisy;
The company's 401(k) plan for employees had $73 million invested companies that make the emergency contraception pills, intrauterine devices and drugs used for abortions, according to documents filed with the Department of Labor in 2012. The companies invested in by multiple mutual funds in Hobby Lobby's retirement plan include Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Pfizer and Bayer. Some of the funds also invested in Aetna and Humana, insurance companies that provide plans covering contraception.
That plus the fact that much if not most of the ugly crap they sell in their stores come from China whose population control policies include forced abortions.
You're an idiot!
