The African-American toddler knocks down a chair and gives nearly as good as he gets, responding to some of the comments with an upraised middle finger and telling one of the adults at one point, "Shut up, bitch." The adults laugh and prompt him to repeat other crudities.

In The Big White Ghetto

"There is much here to confound conservatives, too. Jim DeMint likes to say that marriage is our best anti-poverty program, and he also has a point. But a 2004 study found that the majority of impoverished households in Appalachia were headed by married couples, not single mothers. Getting and staying married is not a surefire prophylactic against poverty. Neither are prophylactics. Kentucky has a higher teen-motherhood rate than the national average, but not radically so, and its young mothers are more likely to be married. Kentucky is No. 19 in the ranking of states by teen pregnancy rates, but it is No. 8 when it comes to teen birth rates, according to the Guttmacher Institute, its young women being somewhat less savage than most of their counterparts across the country. Kentucky and West Virginia have abortion rates that are one-fourth those of Rhode Island or Connecticut, and one-fifth that of Florida. More marriage, less abortion: Not exactly the sort of thing out of which conservative indictments are made. But marriage is less economically valuable, at least to men, in Appalachia – like their counterparts elsewhere, married men here earn more than their unmarried counterparts, but the difference is smaller and declining.

In effect, welfare has made Appalachia into a big and sparsely populated housing project — too backward to thrive, but just comfortable enough to keep the underclass in place. There is no cure for poverty, because there is no cause of poverty — poverty is the natural condition of the human animal. It is not as though labor and enterprise are unknown here: Digging coal is hard work, farming is hard work, timbering is hard work — so hard that the best and brightest long ago packed up for Cincinnati or Pittsburgh or Memphis or Houston. There is to this day an Appalachian bar in Detroit and ex-Appalachian enclaves around the country. The lesson of the Big White Ghetto is the same as the lessons we learned about the urban housing projects in the late 20th century: The best public-policy treatment we have for poverty is dilution. But like the old project towers, the Appalachian draw culture produces concentration, a socio­economic Salton Sea that becomes more toxic every year."

"The facts:
On Wednesday, the State Department's former point man on security in Libya told the House Oversight Committee that he asked for additional security help for the Benghazi facility months before the attack, but was denied.
Various communications dating back a year asked for three to five diplomatic security agents, according to testimony at Wednesday's hearing. But Eric Nordstrom, the one-time regional security officer, said he verbally asked for 12 agents.
The request for 12 agents was rebuffed by the regional director of the State Department's Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, Nordstrom testified.
"For me and my staff, it was abundantly clear that we were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident," Nordstrom said.
Also, Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, a Utah National Guardsman who was a site security commander in Libya from February through August, testified that a regional security officer tried to obtain more personnel, but 'was never able to attain the numbers he felt comfortable with." It was unclear whether he was talking about Nordstrom.
Five diplomatic security special agents were in Benghazi at the time of the attack, two of whom only happened to be there because they had traveled with Stevens from Tripoli, according to testimony.
Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy responded, at the hearing, to suggestions the State Department was responsible for a lack of preparedness: "We regularly assess risk and resource allocation, a process involving the considered judgments of experienced professionals on the ground and in Washington, using the best available information."
On Tuesday, two senior State Department officials told reporters that U.S. and Libyan security personnel in Benghazi were out-manned, and that no reasonable security presence could have fended off the assault.
Conclusion: It's unclear how high Nordstrom's request got in the administration, but he says he did ask the State Department's Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs for more security help at the Benghazi post."

With less than 100 million people working full time and over 90 million people who need jobs,I would count that as about a 45% unemployment rate.

Sen. Lamar Alexander's fired chief of staff Ryan Loskarn to be released on bail

A federal judge ordered Ryan Loskarn to be released as he awaits a grand jury hearing over allegations that he possessed and distributed child pornography.

Loskarn, who was chief of staff to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) until his arrest last week, will be released on his own recognizance and placed on “high intensity supervision” that will severely limit his activities.

Brad Dayspring, McConnell point man at the NRSC Josh Holmes, and Brian Walsh, a former NRSC staffer still on the payroll who writes op-eds attacking the Senate Conservatives Fund, are all in photographs with Ryan Loskarn. They are all good friends with him. One picture that had been on Loskarn’s Facebook page was of a fire pit noting he and Brian Walsh were hanging out together. Another is of him with Holmes and Walsh at an event. Another is him having a beer with Dayspring. Media reports out after Loskarn’s arrest allege he was to be in Brad Dayspring’s upcoming wedding.

Yes, it is absolutely ridiculous to connect the NRSC and its staffers to Ryan Loskarn’s child pornography arrest. They just happen to be friends, drinking buddies, and colleagues of his

At his press conference today Gov. Christie stated that before he went public with his initial denials around 4 weeks ago that his staff had nothing to do with creating a massive 4 day traffic jam in Ft. Lee, he asked two people to "interview each member of his senior staff" about any involvement in creating the traffic jam. Those two people were his Chief of Staff Kevin O-Dowd and his Chief Legal Counsel Charlie McKenna. They reported back to him that nobody on his senior staff had any information about the traffic jam.

But it turns out there's a document already released that show's that Charlie McKenna was almost certainly directly involved the in the scandal from the beginning.

Take a look at page 20 from the released documents. It involves a list of text messages sent back and forth between Bill Baroni and David Wildstein on November 25, 2013. The gist of the messages is that Baroni feels like he's not getting enough credit for his role in shutting down the local access lanes. Here is an excerpt:

[11/25/13 11:58 AM] David Wildstein: You did great
[11/25/13 11:59 AM] Bill Baroni (6094687069): Trenton feedback
[11/25/13 11:59 AM] Bill Baroni (6094687069):?
[11/25/13 11:59 AM] David Wildstein: Good

[11/25/13 11:59 AM] Bill Baroni (6094687069): Just good? Shit
[11/25/13 12:00 PM] David Wildstein: No I have only texted brudget and Nicole they were VERY happy
[11/25/13 12:00 PM] Bill Baroni (6094687069): Ok
[11/25/13 12:00 PM] David Wildstein: Both said you are doing great
[11/25/13 12:06 PM] David Wildstein: Charlie said you did GREAT

Notice the last line. "Charlie said you did GREAT."

Who is Charlie? The only senior staff member with that name is Charles McKenna, Gov. Christie's Chief Legal Counsel (they go all the way back together to the US Attorney's office). The same "Charlie" McKenna who Christie stated today was one of the two people who interrogated his staff and assured him nobody was involved.

Except, of course, there is real evidence showing that "Charlie" was well aware of this scandal as far back as Nov. 25, 2013 and likely much earlier.

It's too bad the press is sleeping on this potential smoking gun. If this goes all the way to Christie's longtime friend and Chief Legal Counsel it's nearly impossible to believe that Christie had no knowledge of his staff's involvement until yesterday morning.

Just now Rachel Maddow had a very explosive revelation. The lane closures of the George Washington Bridge in Ft Lee had NOTHING to do with the mayor. Rather it was an attack against the Democratic Senate Minority leader Loretta Weinberg who represents Ft Lee. The same Loretta Weinberg who Chris Christie said a month ago was 'fixated' on this and obviously had 'nothing better to do.'

The reasons and ramifications below the swamp squiggle.

Turns out Loretta Weinberg and the Democrats were blocking some nominees to the State Supreme Court by Christie. The genesis of this was Christie not renominating an African American to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court and instead yanking him off when his 7 year term was up. The first time this was done supposedly in NJ State history.

But this approach isn't about Christie's ego per se. It's about Christie's freedom. As a former prosecutor - one who put many, many Democratic lawmakers into the dock for "public malfeasance" - he knows exactly what his legal stakes are. That is why he must reiterate the "I knew nothing" apologia front, center and always. "I knew nothing about this until I saw it on my iPad on Wednesday morning at 8:50 AM.'"

What are some of the legal consequences Christie knows he faces? Additional details after the squiggle.

"What's the big deal over some traffic jams?" many comments on news boards read. The writers describe the staff actions as a "prank," the result of a "frat atmosphere," or some other high-spirited staff attitudes. The major thrust of these comments is always,"So Fort Lee had some gridlock for a few days...what's the big deal?"

The "big deal" is that the emails reveal that those writing or receiving them - Bridget Kelley, David Wildstein, Port Authority Chairman David Samson (a Christie appointee), Michael Drewniak (Christie's press secretary) and Bob Stepian (Christie's campaign manager)- all appear to be guilty of breaking both New Jersey and Federal statutes. The starting list of start of the potential charges include official misconduct, interference with transportation, risk of causing widespread injury, and criminal coercion, including both state and Federal statutes. Penalties are magnified by the Patriot Act, because the Port Authority is under a heightened state of alert. These could even be prosecuted as "terrorist acts," considering that the period of time this covered was over the 9/11 anniversary. Any punishments would therefore technically be of a higher degree.
