Female AME Pastors In South Carolina Receive Threatening Letters


The two pastors received letters where the writer used Bible verses to threaten the women, leaving them concerned about their safety. One letter was left on the front door of Society Hill AME Church on June 10th for Pastor Mary Rhodes.
“Whoever wrote this letter has taken the rime to find out who I am which means you may know my children, my grandchildren, and I have no clue who you are” Pastor Rhodes said.
Four days later, Pastor Valarie Bartley received the same letter at Reevesville AME Church.
The writer, who identifies as Apostle Prophet Harry Leon Fleming, says in the letter that “the woman cannot be head of the man in church, home and the world.”
Clarendon County Sheriff Randy Garrett says he is taking the letters seriously.
“The Clarendon County Sheriff's Office is continuing their quest in attempt to locate the person or persons responsible for distributing the letters and will have deputies posted at every church that received the letter,” Garrett said in a statement. “The citizens of Clarendon County will be able to worship in peace…”
The letters may have struck fear in the hearts of the pastors, but they will not allow it to keep them from worshiping on Sundays.
“Nothing is going to stop me from doing what God has called me to do,” Rhodes said.
all i have to say is they definitely can't blame this on lightning. God Bless these people and the sanctity of their Churches.  i wonder does this or these persons sit in their churches on Sunday smug and unrepentant????

Heeding Francis, Iowa Catholic leaders to pressure '16 field

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Roman Catholic leaders in the early voting state of Iowa will call Thursday on candidates for president to follow the teachings of Pope Francis and focus as much on the environment and income inequality in 2016 as they have in past elections on opposing gay marriage and abortion.
In that major teaching document, the leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics called for a "bold sweeping revolution" to correct what he sees as a "structurally perverse" economic system that allows the rich to exploit the poor and has turned the Earth into an "immense pile of filth."
The push from Pates and other bishops in Iowa threatens to disrupt the historically reliable alliance of evangelical Christians and conservative Roman Catholic voters, putting pressure on Republicans who have leaned on their religious faith to guide them on social issues.
It will also focus attention on how the six Roman Catholic seeking the 2016 Republican presidential nomination — former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former New York Gov. George Pataki, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum — will wrestle with a pope's teachings on economics and climate change that clash with traditional Republican ideology.
"Pope Francis hasn't changed church teaching, but he has given greater salience to social welfare and environmental issues, which has put Catholic Republicans in an awkward position," said John Green, director of the University of Akron's Bliss Institute of Applied Politics, "particularly if they want to also claim, like many of them do, that religion is important to them."
this is where the rubber meets the road if the religious right is as they say religious which way will they go honor Pope Frankie or honor their dedication to right wing politics which IMO falls far short of what the Pope is asking.  we know the big opposition will come from the evangelicals who i'm sure will ignore because they are not Catholic and not bound to any acknowledgement of Pope Frankie or his wishes besides they have their own laws and God.

so for the right wing and republicans who is your master?????  i'm rooting for Pope Frankie and i'm Baptist.

The Best And Worst Media Interviews With Climate-Denying Presidential Candidates

A new Media Matters study has found that outside of MSNBC, major broadcast and cable television outlets are failing to fact-check climate science denial by presidential candidates 75 percent of the time. But it's worth taking a closer look at how television program hosts have handled their face-to-face interviews with presidential candidates, since these high-profile interviews often get a substantial amount of attention and can shape media discussions for days or even weeks to come.  
So how are TV hosts responding when presidential candidates spout climate science denial in real time? It depends which channel you're watching.
CNN's Jake Tapper has offered an instructive example of how to address presidential candidates' climate denial during his interviews with real estate mogul Donald Trump and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA). On the June 28 edition of CNN's State of the Union, Tapper responded to Trump's declaration that he is "not a huge believer in the global warming phenomenon" by telling Trump that "the overwhelming majority of scientists say it's real and it's man-made."
i still hold firm to my belief that the opposition to climate change and human involvement is do to the fact that if republicans embrace it as a reality they will have no leg to stand on when trying to protect big business from polluting the environment, thereby opening the doors for regulation of factories and other pollutant creating manufacturers costing them millions to keep from killing us off for another dime.

that is a republican no no business first it's like their rule of acquisition, some might remember that from Star Trek Deep Space Nine and the Ferengi.  after all some of their antics are truly from out of space, check out the interviews in the article.

O'Reilly: Religious Americans "Are In Danger" If Hillary Clinton Becomes President

i got nothing, just listen to the certified liar and ask yourself as a rational person who in the hell believes this crap than reflect, his "FOLKS" and as long as they do Fox will allow him to continue is fictitious reality show and the under informed well they are still that.

Chris Christie runs for president, vows to turn America into New Jersey

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie speaks while being interviewed onstage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at National Harbor in Maryland  February 26, 2015.  REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque  (UNITED STATES - Tags: POLITICS) - RTR4RBJT

Yeah, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is running for president. No, I don't know why either. And yes, his polling numbers are terrible.
Negativity toward Christie in the past 18 months has pervaded judgments on Christie as a person (now seen as more bully than trustworthy), his job (no rating crosses the 50-percent mark), and his chances for 2016 (more than four in 10 New Jerseyans said they have worsened recently).
Which would be a problem if Christie needed to give a damn what people in New Jersey think, as opposed to filling his days with long trips determining what Iowans thought about gestational pig crates so he could make sure his New Jersey administration temporarily thought that thing too.
In any event, Christie announced his candidacy Tuesday morning in an event filled with all the enthusiasm of a mandatory school assembly and with abstract threats to do to the country what he's done for New Jersey. Presumably that means nixing high-priority state infrastructure projects, or intentionally fouling traffic in order to teach political enemies a lesson, or yelling at people, 
or transparent cronyism, or nixing the indictments of political allies, or tanking the state's credit rating, or defunding pensions while making sure Wall Street still gets their cut, or ick, just ick, or taking lavish trips overseas, or just generally being the most obnoxious person in any room he's in, which given the company he keeps is a damn impressive accomplishment.
All right, so Christie's in. God only knows who he considers his "base." Iowa pig farmers, I guess, and people who really hate Social Security.
what is it with republican base they rally at elected officials telling them to "sit down and shut up" like they are 5 year old's,  they cheer at the bully tactics that has allowed him to tank NJ, defund their pensions that for me would be pitchfork and torch time.

vindictive politics if you dare to oppose yet he has no knowledge of the bridge closing that was all over the news and blowing up the phones in his office.  the only genuine moment he had was hugging Pres. for doing what his own party wouldn't give his state hurricane relief.  where's that guy or was that too just another photo opt???

imagine Christie v. Putin talking peace at each other who gets the title of billy badazz and who loses American and or Russia.

Oklahoma Supreme Court: Public Ten Commandments Monument Must Come Down


From the AP:
Oklahoma's Supreme Court says the Ten Commandments monument at the state Capitol must be removed because it indirectly benefits the Jewish and Christian faiths in violation of the state's constitution.
The court ruled Tuesday that the Oklahoma Constitution bans using public property to benefit a religion, and said the Ten Commandments are "obviously religious in nature."
Attorney General Scott Pruitt argued that the monument is nearly identical to a Texas monument that was found constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. Oklahoma justices said the local monument violates Oklahoma's constitution.
It was a 7-2 decision. According to Reuters, Lawmakers in favor of the six-foot tall monstrosity had argued that it wasn't religious in nature, but rather, commemorated an historical event. LOL
Update 1:
From the comments, Adam B found the most crucial part of the actual ruling:
The plain intent of Article 2, Section 5 is to ban State Government, its officials, and its subdivisions from using public money or property for the benefit of any religious purpose. Use of the words "no," "ever," and "any" reflects the broad and expansive reach of the ban...
WHOA!!!!!!!  this is one of the top 10 religious states including evangelicals so my question is are not the 10 Commandments a staple of the Bible and a map to Christian behavior???  so has the word been once again usurped and rendered obsolete by the religious right??  and they wonder why their ranks are abandoning religion or is it more accurate to say organized religion the name itself implies it is not organized by God but mere mortal fallible subject to discrimination by man.

what's with the singling out of Jewish and Christian religions as being benefactors?

KKK to hold pro-Confederate flag rally at South Carolina's statehouse

Armed Klansman in Ohio, circa 1948
                         Because heritage n' stuff
Sure, why not.
The Ku Klux Klan plans to hold a rally at the South Carolina Statehouse next month to protest renewed efforts to remove the Confederate flag from the Statehouse grounds.
The Loyal White Knights out of Pelham, N.C. requested the rally from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on July 18 at the north grounds of the Statehouse.
I can't think of a better way to demonstrate what the Confederate flag means to southern "heritage" than to have a white supremacist group with a long American history of vicious murders march around yelling and waving it at people. By all means, you do that.
if Gov. Haley were serious she would block these racist i'm sure as creative a they havev been filing charges against Blacks they could come up with something. it's a given they are not coming for a Kumbaya Kodak moment but to incite or re-incite the bigots and fellow racist, ginning them up about that flag and their "HERITAGE".

now if taking it down is suppose to mark change why allow the representatives of that you wish to change to come in and revitalize it's meaning?  i know 1st amendment but there comes a time when mouths should be bound and not allowed to instigate that which yuare trying to eliminate.


Mexico won't send contestant to Trump's Miss Universe pageant; both co-hosts pull out

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gestures and declares

On Tuesday, the Mexican media company Televisa said it would not send a contestant to this year's Miss Universe pageant, making Mexico the first country to pull out of Trump's contest in protest of remarks he made about Mexican immigrants. Televisa oversees the national pageant that selects Mexico's representative at Miss Universe.
Now the event no longer has any hosts, the latest fallout over Donald Trump's incendiary remarks about Mexican immigrants.
Professional dancer Cheryl Burke announced Tuesday that she will no longer serve as co-host of Miss USA next month, citing both Trump's recent comments and NBC's decision to cut ties with the billionaire. A short while later, a spokesman for NBC confirmed that MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts had also withdrawn from hosting duties.
Real estate developer Donald Trump said Tuesday that he filed a $500 million lawsuit against Univision after the television network severed ties with him last week.
Huh. It seems the person who based his campaign bid around the theory that he was such a shrewd businessman he'd have everyone from Mexico to China to ISIS begging for mercy was caught unawares by the discovery that people and businesses who are Not Him are free to play that game too. And he's not taking it well, announcing that Univision not wanting to play with him anymore is:
"in reality, a politically motivated attempt to suppress Mr. Trump’s freedom of speech under the First Amendment as he begins to campaign for the nation’s presidency."
what happen to the love for Mexico and the Mexican people and all the great relationships with you know the same ones he said were drug smuggling rapist?  is he so dim witted that he thinks he can get away with saying that with no repercussions, guess so.  he has to have some mental disorder he's definitely won the who out hates who award and what does the right wing do make him number 2 in the polls.  we don't want republicans in office for the obvious take a look around reasons, but now i'm questioning that party base do we want them????

the guy is a deluded paranoid schizophrenic who sees the enemy in us all and we are to stupid to know that the country is under siege by the world worst according to him the phobia is only rivaled by his delusions of grandeur.  listen to him rant on.  he my friends is a true republican with all the bells and whistles.

Texas AG refuses to 'defend the Constitution and laws of the United States'

As the Confederate flag is coming down, calls for states to nullify federal laws are going up. In Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton advised county clerks, magistrates and justices of the peace may opt-out of performing same-sex marriages the United States Supreme Court legalized nationwide on Friday. As it turns out, Paxton isn't just telling public employees they may discriminate against the public. He's telling them they should violate their oath of office, too.
All elected or appointed officials in Texas must swear this oath:
"I, ________, do solemnly swear (or affirm), that I will faithfully execute the duties of the office of ________ of the State of Texas, and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States and of this State, so help me God."
Apparently, Paxton does not believe in supremacy, or at least not the kind of supremacy mandated by the U.S. Constitution. As the Supremacy Clause in Article VI makes clear:
This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.
Unlike North Carolina, where Republican legislators overrode the governor's veto to allow clerks to refuse to perform all marriages altogether, Paxton instructed judges, justices of the peace, county clerks and their employees that they "retain religious freedoms that may allow accommodation of their religious objections to issuing same-sex marriage licenses." 
Not too content to rest there, the attorney general proclaimed the Lone Star State was ready to come to their defense:
"It is important to note that any clerk who wishes to defend their religious objections and who chooses not to issue licenses may well face litigation and/or a fine. But, numerous lawyers stand ready to assist clerks defending their religious beliefs, in many cases on a pro-bono basis, and I will do everything I can from this office to be a public voice for those standing in defense of their rights."
Unfortunately for Paxton and his fellow travelers in other states, Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights explained, "Public officials have no constitutional or statutory right to discriminate in providing public services." 
Neither the "ministerial exception" for churches, religious schools and groups nor the court's newly discovered religious freedom protections for owners of privately held businesses enable government workers to refuse service to members of the public that pay them.
we've seen law suits and slanderous accusations about Pres. and his exec.decisions they called him lawless pushing hard on that one but now that they have pretty much reaped nothing but goose eggs for all their skulduggery the revert to character name calling and finger pointing. 

shout out to Scalia, maybe you should call the republican party "i know you are but what am i?" party of Pee Wee Herman. republican defiance because they feel they were betrayed speaks to the fact they were under the impression that the right wing side of scotus was let's say bought and payed for or at least their decisions.  temper tantrums are unbecoming a supreme court justice and rigging courts are criminal offenses, permanent time outs do.

Cartoon:White culture's thug youth

now we are addressing the issues of America left to right wing devises who knew? actually we all knew some just felt it better to lay family dysfunction and youth civil disobedience no let's call one side civil unrest the other aggressive radical assertion.

where that other side falls victim to the very things that right wing media have placed exclusively on the door step of Black families, is creating a much more deadly atmosphere.  the youth in America are heading to the arms of ISIS i found no definitive demographic as to which youths but i feel confident in saying if that majority was Black there would be reams of print informing us of that.

it's not just about gangsta rap except when it's embraced by White youth then it's the reefer madness crowd again but the one's being demonized Snoop Dogg, Ludacris and those guys are who we hear in the negative sound familiar it's always us.

Watch Ted Cruz audition for The Simpsons, thanks to Buzzfeed

WASHINGTON — He was the first official candidate for president this year. And now, Sen. Ted Cruz is the first to publicly audition for The Simpsons.
Courtesy of BuzzFeed Politics, you can watch a White House contender do voices of Homer, Lisa, Mr. Burns and others.
It’s a cry for attention, a brilliant campaign ploy, the sign of a guy who knows how to not take himself so seriously, or some combination.
well as you saw he bombed but to a insult to injury check out the link below,
look who posted the story are they turning against him???

Antonin Scalia is toast - literally and figuratively

Sam's Morning Glory Diner in Philadelphia, decided to celebrate the Marriage Equality ruling from the Supreme Court.   So it offered some new menu items, among them were two  "The Supreme Court Finally Got t Right" quiches.  These special sold out.  The diners loved them.
But the diner wasn't so happy with the crankiness of Antonin Scalia.  Sam's offered two specials named for him.  The diners were at least as happy with these two specials.
Sam's decided that Justice Scalia had been behaving badly during the case and that he needed to be chastised for his rigid thinking, stodgy mien and overall priggishness.   So Sam's dished up these two:
The "Antonin Scalia Is a Douche Special Scrambled" and the "Antonin Scalia Is a Douche Special Fritata.  Two breakfasts are much more easily digested than Scalia's opinions.  Both of these items sold out in about two hours and had to be removed from the menu.  The diners seemed happy with all of the new choices.
Carol Mickey, the owner said:
“Not one single person complained. The atmosphere in here was really wonderful. People were just loving saying it! ‘I’ll have the Scalia is a Douche, please.’
i think that when officials act in a way that is beneath their station they should be pummeled with criticism and made a laughing stock.  taking stances like he did shows him to be one of those high on the hog like the pig that he is if he has no shame let's create some for him.

the people have spoken again in favor of "THE PEOPLE"  scalia speaks for himself and other right wingers who aren't running away.

Obama to make nearly 5 million more workers eligible for overtime pay

President Barack Obama gestures during a meeting with senior advisors in the Oval Office, June 22, 2015. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

Since President Obama announced last year that he would be raising the threshold for overtime pay eligibility, the big question has been how high he would raise it. Now we have an answer, and it's a good one.
Currently, salaried workers making as little as $23,660 a year can be denied overtime no matter how much they work. Early in 2015, the rumor was that the Obama administration would raise the threshold to around $42,000, an amount that would have covered around 35 percent of salaried workers, or an additional 3.5 million. That's a big boost, but by contrast, in 1975, 65 percent of salaried workers were covered. Progressives hoped for better than $42,000 from this administration ... and will get it. The president writes:
This week, I'll head to Wisconsin to discuss my plan to extend overtime protections to nearly 5 million workers in 2016, covering all salaried workers making up to about $50,400 next year. That's good for workers who want fair pay, and it's good for business owners who are already paying their employees what they deserve -- since those who are doing right by their employees are undercut by competitors who aren't.
For millions of American workers, this is a huge step forward: either they'll get more pay, or they'll get the same pay plus more time away from work to live their lives. Lousy employers won't be able to hire someone at $24,000 a year, call them a manager, and make them work 60 hours a week, mostly at non-managerial work, without paying them any more.
And this is a reminder of the power of the presidency, even with a Republican Congress that refuses to do anything to help workers, ever.
this my friends is truly the greatest Pres. America has ever known even if some want to argue or deny facts and history and the internet will prove that to be a true assessment of President Barack Hussein Obama of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.  in case this isn't enough click the link below

Girl Scouts return $100K to donor who didn't want it used on transgender girls

Our kids are living in a new world, and it's a beautiful thing.
An unnamed $100,000 donor sent the Queen Anne offices of the Girl Scouts of Western Washington a note last May asking the chapter to “guarantee that our gift will not be used to support transgender girls. If you can’t, please return the money.”
Council CEO Megan Ferland returned the donation, which would have sent 500 girls to camp and helped the troop meet nearly a quarter of their annual fundraising goal, with a note saying “Girl Scouts is for every girl. And every girl should have the opportunity to be a Girl Scout if she wants to.”
This comes after the Girl Scouts of America's announcement in May that they will accept transgender kids:
Girl Scouts is proud to be the premiere leadership organization for girls in the country. Placement of transgender youth is handled on a case-by-case basis, with the welfare and best interests of the child and the members of the troop/group in question a top priority. That said, if the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe.
this is turning out to be the year of American equality and the bigots and racist are being shown the hand. the platform of hate and intolerance is now riddled with termites of the voting kind and there is no exterminator on the other side.  orgs. all over America are becomining Amercanized and true to what the country was suppose to be God Bless the America to be.  money can't buy yo love nor can it buy you hate.

Texas Board of Education to be headed by a homeschooler

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott

The Texas Board of Education creates "policies and standards for Texas public schools." Gov. Greg Abbott's choice to head this body setting policies and standards for Texas public schools is a woman whose own children never attended those public schools—they were homeschooled and then sent to a private high school. But hey, she's a former aide to the state's Republican lieutenant governor.
The problem here seems obvious.
Even Republican State Board member Thomas Ratliff called the move a mistake.
“Public school isn’t for everybody, but when 94 percent of our students in Texas attend public schools I think it ought to be a baseline requirement that the chair of the State Board of Education have at least some experience in that realm, as a parent, teacher, something,” Ratliff argued.
Bahorich's relevant experience, as listed on her LinkedIn profile, includes "founder/director/board member" of Home Ed Plus, which "provides the opportunity for homeschool families and Christian teachers to come together in support of a high quality academic education for homeschooled students." Naturally she's also a huge supporter of charter schools. Basically any way of getting students out of public schools ... the public schools for which she'll play a major role in setting policy.
this sounds awfully suspicious, he puts a person in charge who is dedicated to destroying the public school system in favor of privatizing leaving thousands of poor out of the education system.  if that is so how stupid is this right wing female to take such a job that if she accomplishes the intent will be blamed for it's failure. hor the male righty's they get a win win lose public schooling and privatization a shoe in, maybe even a 3 fer get rid of a preceivably  incompetent board of ed. that too is a priority starting with teachers unions.

oh those republican can't live without them can't live with them literally.

Donald Trump says if he's elected president he will change his hairstyle

Executive Producer and host Donald Trump speaks about the NBC television show

He'll defeat ISIS single-handedly. He'll build a wall on our southern border and make Mexico pay for it. He'd change his hair.
WINTERSET, Ia. – Donald Trump says if he gets elected president, he would have to change his hair style because he wouldn't have time to maintain it, as he would be working his butt off in the White House.
Now there's a lede. File this under Elections, Our Modern, and also under promises President Donald Trump would never be able to keep. Donald Trump without his hair helmet would be like Rick Santorum without his sanctimoniousness. Without his defining feature he'd just be an everyday, normal asshole.
What? He doesn't have people for that? Hiring on a new staff to comb President Trump's hair seems like one of those shovel-ready projects we're always going on about. Create those jobs, Mr. Job Creator.
He's almost certainly going to be in the first debate, you know. This is going to be so, so wonderful.
Trump has successfully ditched the klown kar act and has gone on a one man carny show,  he's all the weird carnaval attractions you've ever seen or heard about. next appearance i expect him to bite te head off a chicken or reveal another head under that rug.  why haven't they sent the hook out and yanked him off stage like they did every other bomb vaudeville act.  but the more air time he gets the more damage control republicans have to do leaving less time to make up scandals and lies.

do you really think the gop hierarchy the Koch's et al will allow that loud mouth on the debate stage???

Cartoon: Our national conversations

After every tragedy, we engage in a “national conversation” about how we can prevent it from happening again. That usually devolves into partisan bickering before any significant change happens. Maybe this time will be different. And maybe one day Lucy will let Charlie Brown kick that football.
America and it's two sides Americanism and Democracy WILL EVER THE TWO SHALL MEET AND BECOME THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA????

Bill O'Reilly did not like those rainbow lights at the White House

Television commentator Bill O'Reilly checks himself in a mirror prior to interviewing Bono, lead singer of the Irish rock group U2, during the third night of the 2004 Republican National Convention, at Madison Square Garden in New York, September 1, 2004.

The White House was lit up in rainbow colors on Friday night to celebrate marriage equality ... and someone is sad—sorry, "surprised"—about it:
"I was a bit surprised to see the White House doing a victory lap using actual White House property on Friday," O'Reilly said on Monday night. "The people’s house was illuminated in rainbow colors to celebrate the gay marriage decision. What about all the Americans who believe that a redefinition of marriage is not the job of the Supreme Court?"
"All the Americans" who believe that are in fact a minority of Americans, and they're Americans who want to deprive other Americans of their right to marry. So, you know, I'm not too worried about their fee-fees being hurt by some lights.
O'Reilly said President Obama "did an 'in your face' to traditional Americans" with the White House display.
okay short and sweet, just reverse the rant and apply to theother what he applied to the other other and like the author said those who oppose are the minority.  Bilo still practicing the art of deception with his "FOLKS" or he just didn't bother to do his homework actually why should he he can just do as he always has lie and not worry cause Fox has his back.  guess there could be honor among thieves when the steal the truth from us and replace it with innuendo and contrivances.

oh and no he's not the fairest of them all or the most honest.

Bobby Jindal proposes getting rid of Supreme Court 'to save some money'

Bobby Jindal

Governor Bobby Jindal, quite possibly the worst candidate for president in the field, has a novel approach to being taken seriously:
"The Supreme Court is completely out of control, making laws on their own, and has become a public opinion poll instead of a judicial body. If we want to save some money lets just get rid of the court."
Ok, I think we all know that Article 3 of the Constitution is safe from being repealed. Bobby Jindal knows that too. I wont even entertain it a a serious proposal.
However, it is worth considering as a political strategy. Does Jindal really think that the conservative base is so angry and extreme that it would actually vote for him based on his advocacy of a Constitutional Amendment to abolish the Supreme Court? 
No, I don't think he does. Does he think there is a treasure chest full of campaign dollars waiting for him out there for which there is a map that reads 'Captain Nutcase' s Motherlode? 'No, don't think that's it either.
you know with the embarrassing show of soooo many candidates which shows little solidarity within the ranks they have a party platform granted it's a few things all designed to keep the rich richer and deny you healthcare among other things. 

one thing is true they claim they have such great wannabe's with all these great ideas problem is the ideas though a like are quite different as to extreme and the real problem is none of those ideas benefit you or country.  

another thing to keep in mind if there are that many contestants all sure to attack one another with whose idea is the most extreme who can't agree on the best thing for the country and we the people or them the corporations how can you trust them to run the country after all they have been away for years now rusty at best still republican at worst.

scotus was their buddies when they ruled against we the people who is your buddy????

Jon Stewart had no problem proving Antonin Scalia a dishonest hypocrite

Jon Stewart pointed out that while Justice Scalia implied that the Supreme Court should not overturn the will of the voters, he had no problem doing that with his Obamacare vote inasmuch as most people do not want it overturned. Stewart also reminded us that while Americans overwhelmingly want money out of politics, 
Scalia had no problem going against the people in the Citizens United case or the McCutcheon case. Groups like Move to Amend and Coffee Party USA are building grassroots movements that are fighting to mitigate this atrocity.
Justice Scalia had no problem destroying parts of the Voting Rights Act which most Americans support. He even implied that it was the court's job to go against the people as politicians would not on certain issues. He also had no problem appointing George W. Bush president of the United States even though he lost the election. The disaster that was the Bush presidency with the loss of life and treasure he effected on the country is the direct result of the actions of conservatives on the Supreme Court.

Antonin Scalia's pomposity is just that. It is the utterances of a dishonest ideologue. This man is the guardian of the American plutocracy and a clear and present danger to the country based on many of his decisions.

Stewart has it right this is what we get when we elect republicans they put in high places people with this kind of anti people mindset.   he is a republican and comes with the complete package and rhetoric just like his counterparts in congress he didn't get his way so he resorts or regresses to name calling and finger pointing really mature for a guy who's job it is, is to interpret the law not throw a hissy fit when his anti American agenda is not accepted.

baby boy needs a permanent time out.
