A lot of breaking news today, so short posts while I prepare two big ones. The Court will be issuing its biggest decisions over the next week. Today they ruled against Aero (and much as I like the idea of Aero, I kind of see their point). But the most important decision they handed down was in Riley v. California. The Court decided — unanimously — that cops need a warrant to search your … Read more
The economy contracted almost three percent in the first quarter, the worst quarter since the end of the Great Recession. Maybe it’s a blip, but that is a scary number. I’m sure the Obama defenders will blame it on the cold weather but I’m pretty sure we had cold weather in the past. Eventually, this will be Bush’s fault. Or “austerity”.
This is horrible news, whatever your politics. While I oppose Obama, I want the … Read more
Cause the dude had a knife in his back, and still went to Mickey Ds first according to the link.
The victim was stabbed in the back, but managed to walk down the block and into the restaurant, witnesses said. “I heard everybody screaming and it was a lot of commotion,” witness Tromaine Yancey told CBS 2′s Don Champion. “The guy came and he was standing there with a knife in his back and it
Paul Ryan unloaded on the IRS commissioner during last week’s hearings. It’s pretty sweet:
I’ll tell you what really got me about this video: the arrogant smug look on that fuck Koskinen’s face. That’s the look of a man who knows he’s full of it and who knows he has Democrats on the committee who will carry his water for him. He clearly doesn’t give a damn that he has lied to Congress, misled them, … Read more
I’m moving any WC updates to it’s own post.
A few minutes away from USA vs. Portugal…………………….this game is huge. No Jozy (hopefully he is rehabbing the shit out of that hammy). Ronaldo is playing, not sure how effective.
That Germany/Ghana match yesterday was just awesome, reminds me what a feat that was beating Ghana in the first round. Bosnia got screwed big time, check out that douche off sides call by the ref, robbing … Read more
I see that even the NYT is forced to admit that not every higher education field of study provides the same earning potential, albeit, the author prefixes this indubitable fact with the excuse that somehow it only matters in times of a recession. That’s bullshit. No, not the admission that degrees ins some fields are worth far more than others , but that this only happens to be the case during a recession.

Is this the first bump in the road for Hillary Clinton’s inevitable inauguration? The blogosphere has been buzzing about Hillary successfully defending an accused child molester in one of her early cases as an attorney.
Hillary Clinton is known as a champion of women and girls, but one woman who says she was raped as a 12-year-old in Arkansas doesn’t think Hillary deserves that honor. This woman says Hillary smeared her and used dishonest tactics
Let me start by admitting that yes, I am a diehard Redskins fan. Been one since I saw my first live football game back at the age of 12 in the old RFK stadium. Stuck with the team through thick and thin and even though I had no other reason than that’s the first team I chose to root for. I have always loved the team name and logo, and seen it as actually honoring … Read more
