Paging DOJ: Vote Tampering? Rangel’s Lead Shrinking, Could Disappear

June 29, 2012
By

This is only one of several troubling reports coming out of New York after Rangel declared victory. What are the odds that Holder's DOJ will be all over this?

Amazingly, the Board’s Tuesday night tally listed 79 election districts — 15% of Rangel’s entire congressional district — as recording no votes.

Nada.

Will GOP Hold Senate Dems Feet To The Fire On A Repeal Vote?

June 29, 2012
By

There are 16 non-Republican Senate re-election contests in November. As long as we're hearing -it won't pass the Senate, as far as I'm concerned, the GOP is just playing politics, not ernestly working for repeal. How many of those names below want to empower the largest middle class tax increase in American...

June 29, 2012
By

The jokes just write themselves.

Talk about your captive audiences!

In an effort to cut down on drunken driving, the state is distributing the totally awesome named Interactive Urinal Communicators to some bars, restaurants and other drinkaterias in Wayne, Bay, Ottawa and Delta counties.

Yup, talking urinal cakes.

Four hundred of the cakes will be...

The Apple Of … My Eye Has A 5 Inch Worm In It

Well, that sucks.

Doctors in the Indian city of Mumbai have extracted a 12.5cm-long live worm from a patient's eye. PK Krishnamurthy, 75, felt "itching and irritation" in his right eye, but could scarcely have dreamed of the cause.

When doctors at Fortis hospital examined him, they found the worm and...

Alaskan Plane Debris From 1952 Thought To Be C-124A Globemaster

It's going to take six-years to complete the DNA testing. The wreckage appears to have moved about 12 miles from the ice flow over the years.

Military officials think debris they found on an Alaskan glacier is actually the remains of a military plane that went down 60 years ago,...

American Student Critical After Horrible Chimpanzee Attack At South Africa’s Jane Goodall Institute

Reportedly, he's an American college student there for research, who was giving a tour at the time. They dragged him almost a mile. Good Lord.

Mediclinic Nelspruit, the hospital where he was taken, said Friday he was in intensive care in critical condition after undergoing surgery Thursday.

The man had “multiple and severe...

Just out regarding the George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin case.

George Zimmerman, the man accused of fatally shooting unarmed black teen Travyon Martin, returned to a Florida courtroom on Friday asking to be let out of jail for a second time.

On The Other Hand, w/ 102 Re-Tweets, Maybe This Is The Answer For Roberts’ Call

The other explanation for Roberts' decision I offered via Twitter last night. It seems to be a popular view. ; )

Not bad.

On Roberts And The ObamaCare Decision And Why

June 29, 2012
By

Why did Roberts uphold ObamaCare and potentially switch his vote?

Hmm. But why?

Charles Krauthammer reached the same conclusion I did after careful thought. It's a complex, debatable point. I spent some time thinking it through calmly, as I haven't seen a great deal of clarity in many reactions.

Why did he do it?...

TSA Agent Allegedly Opened, Spilled Man’s Grandfather’s Ashes, Laughed

June 28, 2012
By

Reading the account of the incident, it would appear to support the man's claim. TSA is claiming there's no video, the relevant security cameras supposedly need upgrading. But they issued him a formal apology, while publicly disputing his version of events. He claims a female agent put her finger in the...

11 Year-Old New York Girl Electrocuted In Miniature Golf Pond At Florida Resort

June 28, 2012

This is tragic and a bit bizarre if reports by witnesses are true. Meanwhile the grandmother of the child who was killed gave an on camera interview to local news station, WESH 2. It's not confirmed but may be the only thing that makes any sense. After hitting her gold ball...

Conor (with one N) Friedersdorf asks:

Why Is Nobody Listening to Jimmy Carter's Searing Critique of America?

Um, because no one pays any attention to him, just like no one pays any attention to you. Silly!

E.J. Dionne, Jr. Must Resign

June 28, 2012

Ah, I feel so much better, now. I also think the air this idiot Dionne breathes would accomplish more were it reserved to prevent O-Zone depletion. But as long as he's breathing it, I guess he gets an opinion, just like every other … person. yawn

Miami Cannibal Was High On Pot, Not Bath Salts

June 27, 2012
By

So called Miami Cannibal, Rudy Eugene, had only marijuana in his system, not the illicit drug known as "bath salts" when he chewed the face off of Ronald Poppo. Previously, I posted one crime scene photo here. It's hard to imagine someone so crazy as to do what Eugene did. But...

Fortune Fast and Furious Report Doesn’t Change Much

June 27, 2012

Not entirely sure what to make of this Fortune report on "Fast and Furious" after a quick read, perhaps the ATF is looking for cover. It reads like a fluff piece based on sources with an agenda of their own. It may prove to be ripe fodder for...

Bank Fraud Ring Jumped To North and South America

It says they were operating with a high-level of "insider knowledge."

The stolen money was then sent to so-called mule accounts in caches of a few hundreds and 100,000 euro (£80,000) at a time.

Credit unions, large multinational banks and regional banks have all been attacked.

Clicked in to a NY Post item on Bill Murray and saw this regarding a Halloween party of late-twenty-something NYC folks.

At around 3:30 on the morning after Halloween, two dozen twentysomething hipsters linger at a loft party in East Williamsburg. The kegs are dry, but die-hard stragglers are still dancing...

Official: Stockton, CA Will Be Largest US City To File Bankruptcy, Possibly Tomorrow

Well, there we have it. Also, an item from KCRA explaining municipal bankruptcy. Catch the wave! This could become a trend. Yesterday, I did an item at Big Government on how the state's stand. Only Wisconsin met its pension obligations during 2010. They are almost all in bad shape.

Mediation failed:

Conservative Women Who Speak Their Minds: Jan Brewer: Obama Told AZ “Drop Dead”

June 26, 2012
By

Politico has the full story. I love it anytime a serious conservative speaks his, or her mind. It's all that much sweeter when it's a woman, as it makes it more difficult for the media to demonize them. Politicians like Rep Michelle Bachmann, later Sarah Palin and others have done ground-breaking...
