Morning Reads–TBE

Today’s Morning Reads are like Floyd “Money” Mayweather: The Best Ever.

It’s already been too cold for too long.

Our very own Stefan T. was seen at Saturday’s Washington State football game. 

Buck Owens with: “Kickin’ Our Hearts Around”



  1. Dave Bearse says:

    “Your purpose, then, plainly stated, is that you will destroy the Government, unless you be allowed to construe and enforce the Constitution as you please, on all points in dispute between you and us. You will rule or ruin in all events.” – Abraham Lincoln, Cooper Union Address

    The address certainly concerned a much more critical issue than Obamacare, but the concept as applied by some in the Tea Party is the same.

    • Harry says:

      “Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government’s purposes are beneficient… The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.”
      – Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis

      • Ed says:

        “One can find any number of quotes or quips from various luminaries to support whatever position one wants to hold. However, they are ultimately useless for proving anything.”
        –The Honorable Ed of Peach Pundit

      • Ellynn says:

        … The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.”

        That’s not a very nice thing to say about the junior senetor of Texas.

    Madison predicts the future:

    “It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow.”

    James Madison
    February 27, 1788

      Cool, quote day – “Loyalty to the country always. Loyalty to the government when it deserves it.” Mark Twain

    • saltycracker says:

      “The only things that it cannot be: they cannot remove her from the school board, they cannot prevent her from attending school board meetings and they cannot prevent her from voting. But otherwise they have a lot of latitude as to what sanction they want to issue,” Jacoby said.

      So if they sanction her the drama will continue. She will not resign, sanctions will be debated and reported in the dailies, a recall will start and it goes on ad nauseam.

      • Three Jack says:

        Exactly salty. Tonight’s hearing is nothing more than an opportunity for all parties (media, administration, professional agitators aka scram, etc.) to publicly rebuke a school board member who asked the wrong questions. Afterwards all parties will scatter to local watering holes to plot their respective actions with recall being the next step for scrammers.

        • saltycracker says:

          She’s the wrong person to carry the torch for any cause.

          When one gets blowback from a new police chief on trying to get the Super arrested and you get arrested, it is time to call an oh sh*t, step back and get a grip.

          She is a loose cannon and should resign to let the charter school bunch run a sound candidate.

          • Three Jack says:

            That may be true salty, but if you saw the hearing tonight, it was truly bizarre from any legal definition. Cousin Vinny representing Kelly was almost surreal. Calling other board members to testify was interesting. Then the topper; Kelly was able to vote on the various sanction motions against her. The only thing that didn’t happen was Kelly making a motion herself which I’m guessing would have been allowed.

            Ultimately she was sanctioned 6 pay periods, $3600.
