For Bob Barr to accept Joe Arpaio’s endorsement is to abandon whatever pretense of libertarianism he had left in him.

Baton Rouge’s Rich Want New Town to Keep Poor Pupils Out: Taxes http://money.msn.com/business-news/article.aspx?feed=BLOOM&date=20140206&id=17328094

Ring a bell?

A GOP takeaway from the 2012 elections was to say the same thing but in a different way. Boehner’s following the plan by unveiling a website on Benghazi that says the same thing, but on the web: http://www.gop.gov/benghazi/

Looking forward to additional webpages on IRS, fast and furious, and the granddaddy of ‘em all: Obama, the Kenyan Muslim.

Jay Leno is gone. Still ranked number one in that time slot. I don’t understand that. Jimmy Fallon? Like Letterman, not fit to sweep Leno’s garage. Sad.

Jon Lester February 7, 2014 at 11:10 am

Sweeping Leno’s garage would take half a day.

I did like Charlie Sheen’s suggestion that Leno take all that money he saved, buy NBC and fire everybody.

Why the hate for Fallon? His show is swell. :(

Noway February 7, 2014 at 3:44 pm

No hate, just realizing that Fallon doesn’t have near the talent as Leno, much less Carson. They tried replacing him with that moron Conan and it lasted 7 months. And Conan went over to that ratings blockbuster, TBS! Now, that was poetic justice. Another hack….
Leno was diplomatic and said all the right things. You do not replace the number one guy with another guy. It’s politics.

John Carson, State Representative (R – NE Cobb) sends a letter to Cobb County PTA Parents explaining changes in revenue and funding for Cobb County Schools since 2010.

The USG is not only ripping off students and taxpayers with their privatized student housing plan.

They are pushing a bill that would allow greedy USG employees to game the retirement plans of the state for their personal benefit. The losers of HB516 will be the Teacher’s Retirement System and its beneficiaries .

The University System is all about greed and they have no shame.

What they are about is unsustainable in this poor state and broke nation.

Traveling in So Calif today and headed to Cabo it occurred….once we get our chest thumping done on fixing the immigration issue our democrats will balk at loosing a cause to grow govt programs and our Reublicans will balk over employee accountability. There is just too much to gain by continuing the exploitation.

Snowjam part 2 coming to a location near you! Monday night through Wed…winter storm watch has been issued. Unfortunately this one looks like more of a freezing rain event…which is much more disruptive to many more people (like power going out)
