What I find so amusing about this is the teabaggers distaste for "large gubmint intrusion" has no bearing here. In fact, I believe they are oblivious to this overreach.

they will, however, stand outside of the nearby Walmart for days on end, trying to get you to 'sign a petition so Obama and his minions wont confiscate your guns like the Nazis did.'

The government intrusion the Tea Party whines about are the kinds of intrusions that benefits the People, such as regulation to maintain clean water and air, health care for citizens, product safety, consumer protection.

If the government harms the People such as letting the rich buy the government the tea Party doesn't mind.

'Mary Fall-in knows that before she throws her giant hat into the ring again, she has to explain her past positions --

specifically, why those positions were so often on top of men who weren't her husband.''—

Mary and a Cowboy

Governor Mary Fallin of Oklahoma, on an airliner bound for Texas to escape a meeting with the black president, finds herself seated next to an older, weathered man in a western snap shirt, faded jeans, and a cowboy hat.

Thinking herself above the old cowboy, she decides to make sport of him.

"You know," she says, "I've heard these flights go much more quickly if you strike up a conversation with a fellow passenger.

So, let's talk."

The cowboy looks at her wryly and says, "Well I s'pose that'd be all right, m'am. What'd ya like to discuss?"

"Oh, I don't know," says Mary with a slight hint of sarcasm.

"How about Abortion or the Morning After Pill?"

"Hmm," says the cowboy, sensing an attempt to perhaps belittle him, "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first: Horses, cows, and deer all eat the same stuff--grass. Yet a deer passes little pellets, a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse makes muffins of dried poop. Why do you suppose that is?"

Dumbfounded, Governor Mary Fallin replies, "I haven't the slightest idea."

"So tell me, then," says the cowboy with a smile. "How is it that you feel qualified to discuss Abortion or the Morning After Pill when you don't know sh-t.

Fox News---We Deceive, You Believe.

It has been revealed that Fox News’ does practice using paid commenters with fake social media accounts, to deceive the online community. Members of Fox’s online PR staff created between twenty and a hundred fake profiles on social media accounts each. The accounts are used by PR staff in order to push the station’s extreme right-wing agenda.

The point of these fake commenters is not just to push a specific agenda. It’s also to deceive the unsuspecting public about the actual amount of support that exists for that agenda. Paid commenters use vicious attacks against anyone who posts an opposing opinion. Eventually the attacks have the effect of driving people with opposite views away from the targeted sites. This allows them to dominate the web with their fake profiles, while at the same time discouraging real people from participating in the discussion.

The right-wing agenda being pushed by these paid commenters, hired by Fox and other sources, doesn’t just include tax breaks for the rich and the myth of corporate person-hood. It includes racism, sexism, homophobia, hatred of the poor and much more

Online trolls are sick, sadistic people. No really.

A new personality study shows that internet trolls have psychopathic, Machiavellian, and sadistic traits. All traits which are found in what psychologists call the Dark Tetrad.

For the purpose of clarity, Wikipedia defines a troll as:

“a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.”

Watch Town Residents Rise Up & Fight Obama Admin’s Plan To Dump Illegal Aliens In Their Small Town


2,247 Shares By Kevin Boyd 22 hours ago

When the Obama administration announced plans to house some of the illegal alien children who are streaming across the border in droves in a closed college in the town of Lawrenceville, Virginia, the plan promptly blew up in their faces when local residents came out in near unanimous opposition to it.
The Obama administration decided to hold a town hall meeting to try and salvage the plan. The problem is, the Lawrenceville residents were still having none of it.
From the Washington Times:
The residents raised concerns about security, disease, impact on overburdened emergency services and tax dollars going to unaccompanied alien children (UACs) instead of local families living in poverty.

“Please take your UACs and relocate them to D.C., where you can keep a very close eye on their welfare and keep them out of our backyard,” said John Zubrod, one in a long line of residents lined up at Brunswick High School to address Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) officials.

The administration organized the community meeting in an attempt to salvage the plan to turn St. Paul’s College, a historically black college that closed last year after losing accreditation, into temporary emergency shelter for about 500 children.
Here’s a pro-tip for the “most competent administration ever”: you might want to let the town know about their new neighbors before bringing them in.
The plan was halted earlier this week after backlash from community members and local officials, who only learned of the project after the feds signed a lease with the college, about 70 miles south of Richmond.
This is just another example of how out-of-touch Washington D.C. bureaucrats are with the American people. Maybe if they would’ve asked the town of Lawrenceville nicely instead of trying to sneak them in, this plan would’ve worked out better.

Biden will make plea, but Obama’s voice urged to stop immigrant children

President Obama has dispatched Vice President Joseph R. Biden to Central America this week to plead with parents to stop sending their children illegally to the U.S., but critics say the president himself should take a stronger stand to stem the surge of child immigrants streaming over the Mexican border.
With tens of thousands of unaccompanied children flooding the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months, Mr. Biden is adding a stop in Guatemala Friday during a long-planned trip to Latin America. He will meet with leaders of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala and is expected to warn parents publicly that their children “are not eligible” to stay in the U.S., a Biden aide said.
SEE ALSO: Joe Biden: U.S. needs ‘constant, unrelenting stream’ of immigrants
Some specialists say what is really needed to slow the influx of young illegal immigrants to the U.S. is for Mr. Obama himself to warn away the children, and to take meaningful enforcement actions. His critics say the president is reluctant to take a higher profile on the issue for fear of alienating Hispanic voters in a midterm election year.
“He needs to let Americans and individuals all over the world know that the United States of America is going to enforce the laws,” said Julie Kirchner, executive director of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which opposes easing the nation’s immigration laws.“If he wants to placate a particular segment of his base by keeping quiet and sending emissaries around the world to ask people not to send their kids to the United States illegally, that’s his choice. But clearly it’s one that’s driven by politics and not policy.”
As if to underscore the administration’s mixed message on young immigrants, the White House on Tuesday will honor 10 young “champions of change” who came to the U.S. illegally and have benefited from Mr. Obama’s deferred deportation program to become “exemplary” leaders in communities from Clifton, New Jersey, to Santa Monica, California.
“This event will showcase these inspirational young leaders and highlight the importance of providing talented young people with the opportunity to realize their full potential,” the White House said. Journalists are barred from attending the event.
With debate raging over the sudden influx of young illegal immigrants, Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain, Arizona Republicans, urged Mr. Obama in a letter last week to take a more visible role in the crisis.
“Few in the world are listened to as closely as the president of the United States,” they wrote.“While resisting the temptation to take further unilateral action on immigration enforcement, the present situation begs your best efforts to make clear that there are consequences for illegally entering the U.S.”

The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment on whether Mr. Obama intends to speak out publicly against the surge of young illegal immigrants. The president has called it an “urgent humanitarian situation.”
White House deputy press secretary Joshua Earnest said Mr. Biden on his trip will discuss “steps these countries can take to ensure the safety of their children and to dissuade parents from entrusting them into the hands of strangers to try to deliver them to the United States.”
“We’d like to shut that off as quickly as we can,” he said.
Biden’s mission
Administration officials also said Mr. Biden will emphasize that children coming to the U.S. now are not eligible for deferred action on deportation, or for citizenship as provided in the Senate-passed legislation that Mr. Obama is advocating.
“The bottom line is that it’s not worth subjecting children to a perilous journey when, at the end of the day, there is no light at the end of the tunnel,” a Biden aide said.

Critics say the administration has encouraged the tide of illegal immigration through policies such as the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals, signed by Mr. Obama in 2012 to grant relief from deportation proceedings for illegal child immigrants who pursue education or join the U.S. military, and lax border enforcement.

Compared with 2011, the year before Mr. Obama’s DACA policy took effect, the number of children coming north to the U.S. has increased more than tenfold this year. Administration officials blame poverty and crime in a few Central American nations and say there is a “misperception” that Mr. Obama’s policies are to blame.
The Los Angeles Times, citing Guatemalan consular officials and parents who are immigrating to the U.S. illegally, reported last week that the immigrants are “drawn by reports circulating throughout Central America that parents with children are allowed to stay in the United States indefinitely.”
The Washington Times reported last week that an internal Border Patrol intelligence memo said illegal immigrants from Central America are surging across the U.S.-Mexico border because they believe they can take advantage of American immigration policy and gain at least a tentative foothold in the country. The immigrants come seeking “permisos,” which apparently are the “notices to appear”— the legal documents given to non-Mexicans caught at the border, according to the memo.
Those notices officially put the immigrants into deportation proceedings. The immigrants usually are released to await a court date, often giving them the opportunity to remain in the country illegally.
Ms. Kirchner said it’s disingenuous of the administration to blame the latest immigration surge on poverty and violence in Central America.
“There’s been poverty and violence in Central America for years, but there’s been no corresponding surge of illegal alien minors flooding the border,” she said.“They’re coming across the border because they think they’ll be allowed to stay. An understanding of the president’s policies is being explained by word-of-mouth.”

DA: Moore Officers Clear In Death Of Luis Rodriguez

Posted: Jun 20, 2014 2:22 PM CDT

According to a report done by the Moore Police, Rodriguez died when he was at the hospital, not when he was being taken into custody.

MOORE, Oklahoma - The Cleveland County District Attorney has cleared the officers involved in the death of Luis Rodriguez, who died outside the Warren Theater in Moore while he was in police custody.
The DA's office released a letter Friday afternoon, stating that the office has reviewed the investigative reports, photographs, witness statements, and other documents contained in the investigation presented to the office on June 3 by the OSBI.

The Oklahoma Medical Examiner said back in April that Rodriguez died from a cardiac arrhythmia due to physical restraint and that his body had signs of a struggle that would not have been enough to kill him.

According to a report done by the Moore Police, Rodriguez died when he was at the hospital, not when he was being taken into custody.

A police report shows that officers were investigating a domestic abuse call outside the Warren Theater. The report shows an officer approached Rodriguez and asked for his identification but "he wasn't giving it to him" then "Luis stepped back, crossed his arms and tried to walk around" the officer.

Police reported that Rodriguez was "taking an aggressive stance" that they "interpreted as a fighting stance." Other officers eventually "stepped in to get Luis under control."

The report also states that "he stopped breathing" at the scene but "he was stabilized" at the hospital, where Rodriguez eventually "stopped breathing again and died" after receiving a CT scan.

District Attorney Greg Mashburn said on Friday that he will not file any charges against the officers, saying they were within their legal right to detain Luis Rodriguez. He said the use of force by the officers against Rodriguez was justified and appropriate under the law. There is no nexus between illegal actions on behalf of the officers and Rodriguez's death.

In the DA's opinion, a Warren Theater security footage shows an officer using knee strikes and other active counter measures to release Rodriguez's arms so he could be handcuffed. Mashburn says this is an appropriate law enforcement technique, and while that did result in bruising to Rodriguez, the DA says it did not contribute to his death.

The Rodriguez family has maintained all along that the video shows the officers using too much force and they vow not to give up their fight.
