I here ya francis...limbaugh kind of blowhard reminds you of Rachel Maddow or Keith Oberman...only polar opposites...Wake up America!
Aside from the terrible loss of life and a barrage of nonsense put out by the NRA, the most insulting assault on public sensibility may be the shameless attempts by the right-wingers to suggest irrational alternatives to sensible gun laws. They seem incapable of grasping the gravity of what happened in Newtown or, like Rush Limbaugh, have the temerity to make light of it with ill-chosen attempts at humor, seem to have lost the capacity to think and feel like descent human beings. It is almost impossible to underestimate the depravity of those in our society who are beyond the reach of decency, having given themselves over to the lowest impulses on the planet in their perverted salute to money lenders and political savages on the far right. The fact that Limbaugh and others like him have grown rich spewing their hate-filled vitriol across the airwaves is a frightening indictment of the kind of behavior we have come to accept.
Remember the CHocalte city DEFEATOCRAP mayor?
Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was indicted today on charges that he used his office for personal gain, accepting payoffs, free trips, and gratuities from contractors while the city was struggling to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The charges against Democrat Nagin are the outgrowth of a City Hall corruption investigation that already has resulted in guilty pleas by two former city officials and two businessmen and a prison sentence for a former city vendor.
Among other things, the 56-year-old Nagin is charged with:
• Accepting more than $160,000 in bribes and truckloads of free granite for his family business in exchange for promoting the interests of a local businessman who secured millions of dollars in city contract work after the 2005 hurricane.
• Accepting at least $60,000 in payoffs from another businessman for his help in securing city contracts for architectural, engineering, and management services work.
• Accepting from several city contractors free travel and vacation expenses for trips to Hawaii, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Jamaica while in office.
• Accepting monthly payoffs from one of the businessmen mentioned above totaling $112,250 after he left office.
