Ben Carson accurately defined after statement on gays: ‘Gifted hands has a deranged mind’ (VIDEO)

Ben Carson accurately defined - 'Gifted hands has a deranged mind'

Ben Carson continues to show his derangement Ben Carson continues to make one wonder how such a gifted neurosurgeon can be so deficient in every aspect of social life and human interaction. He continues to prove that intelligence can be compartmentalized as well with some compartments holding ignorance, bigotry, and intolerance. Andrea Mitchell played an interview clip of CNN's Chris Cuomo interviewing Ben Carson. He has been a vocal critic of gay rights. Chris Cuomo attempted to show the similarities between rights for Blacks and right for gays. Ben Carson would have none of it. "You can't just say because it happened that way," Ben Carson said. "this time this is the same situation. It's not the same situation." He claimed people cannot change their race as he implied being gay was a choice. When Cuomo asked him why, his answer was rather embarrassing if not bizarre even for Ben Carson. "A lot of people who go into prison, go into prison straight and when they come out they are gay," Carson … [Read more...]

Jon Stewart ridicules pandering to Israel’s always wrong warmongering Prime Minister (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart ridicules warmongering wrongheaded Israeli Prime Minister

Jon Stewart wasn't fooled Jon Stewart acknowledged exactly what Isrtaeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address to the Joint Session of Congress was, an attempt to poke President Obama in the eye, a festival of slights. Benjamin Netanyahu appeared at the 'invitation' of Speaker of the House John Boehner, read 'pandering in the attempt to embarrass the President'. Boehner did so while disrespectfully not consulting or informing the White House that a foreign Head of State would be addressing Congress. "Benjamin Netanyahu was on hand to explain to our Congress why our President should not be negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran," Jon Stewart pointed out. "And even though Netanyahu was speaking only two weeks before the Israeli elections, he wasn't there just to use our Congress as the most elaborate campaign commercial backdrop ever." Of course he was. Jon Stewart showed him bragging on Israeli TV about his mission as the savior of the Jews. Stewart then showed a clip that should be … [Read more...]

Emily’s List President Stephanie Schriock eviscerates GOP politicians as she honors Hillary Clinton (VIDEO)

Emily's List President eviscerates Republican bad deeds as they honor Hillary Clinton

Emily's List's President Stephanie Schriock Stephanie Schriock eviscerated Republican politicians for their bad deeds. "Make no mistake," Stephanie Schriock said. "This is your father's Republican Party. This is the exact same trans-vaginal ultrasound, all White-guy committee chair, aspirin between your knees Republican Party we have been fighting for thirty years. Shame on them. They are trying to fool women. And shame on us if we let them get away with it. They don't support women. They don't trust women. They don't respect women so don't tell me that there is no war on women. And don't bother asking for a truce. We didn't start this fight but mark my words. We are going to win it. But if we don't show up for this battle in 2016, we will pay the price for a generation to come. Just imagine what a Republican President and a Republican Congress would do. Actually, you don't have to imagine. Just look at what Republicans Governors and Republican legislatures have already done. They will raise taxes on … [Read more...]

This is why Democrats will lose 2016 if they do not move left. Period.

Democrats 2016

 Unless Hillary Clinton moves left she will not win This morning I read The Hill article "Centrist Dems ready strike against Warren wing" and almost pulled out all the hair I do not have on my head. Rather than pulling skin till it bled, I decided to write this piece instead of the piece I really wanted to write this morning. I will do that later. The Hill piece starts as follows. Centrist Democrats are gathering their forces to fight back against the “Elizabeth Warren wing” of their party, fearing a sharp turn to the left could prove disastrous in the 2016 elections. It is as if they believe that the Democratic Party's sharp turn to the right was a centrist move. The reason many Liberals and Progressives have been clamoring for Elizabeth Warren is because of her populist economic message. After being screwed by Wall Street and government policies that allowed them to rip us all off, Progressives and Liberals know it is a message they can sell to Americans, a message that engages Americans. It is … [Read more...]

Reagan adviser on Tea Party Republicans – ‘They are really rather stupid and not very well read’ (VIDEO)

bruce Bartlett

Bruce Bartlett was President Ronald Reagan's Political Adviser Last week at CPAC potential Republican candidates were invoking President Ronald Reagan ad-nauseam.  Ed Schultz asked Bruce Bartlett, former adviser to President Ronald Reagan, how would Reagan have been treated at CPAC. "I think he probably would be booed out of the crowd," Bruce Bartlett said. "If only because he gave amnesty to illegal aliens back in 1986. Nativists like Representative Steve King routinely denounce Reagan for that. They would have denounced him for raising taxes eleven times. They would be  have denounced him for raising the debt limit. They would have denounced him for running budget deficits. They would have denounced him for supporting labor unions. ... And we are not even getting into all the Liberal things that he did as governor such as signing the most Liberal abortion law in the United States. I think this guy definitely would not be a favorite of this crowed. Ed Schultz then asked if it is that Conservatives … [Read more...]

Texas Republican politicians continue their healthcare policies that kill Texans

Texas Republicans killing Texans

Texas Republican Politicians are committing a moral crime Texas Republican politicians continue with their policies that are killing Texans. Uninsured Texans will continue to get sicker and sicker as they find healthcare unaffordable. Over one million Texans are uninsured. Texas has has the highest uninsured population rate in the country. It isn't hyperbole to say that Texans are dying because of these policies. There are studies that have been done that quantifies the number of deaths caused by these policies. The Texas Tribune reported reported the following. Leading Texas Republicans on Monday asked the Obama administration for greater flexibility to administer Medicaid — a move that has gotten little traction in the past — while reiterating that they would not participate in an expansion of the program under the Affordable Care Act. “Any expansion of Medicaid in Texas is simply not worth discussing,” state Sen.Charles Schwertner, R-Georgetown, chairman of the Senate Committee on Health and … [Read more...]

Her Name is Rose – A story worth reading

Old Woman College Rose

This one of those stories I get periodically from my mother via email. I 'snoped' it to see if it was just a made up story. Well Snopes was inconclusive on it so I choose to assume it is true because the moral of the story is worth it. Her Name is Rose The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn't already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being. She said, 'Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I'm eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?' I laughed and enthusiastically responded, 'Of course you may!' and she gave me a giant squeeze. 'Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?' I asked. She jokingly replied, 'I'm here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids...' 'No seriously,' I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this … [Read more...]

Stop rewarding Obamacare political malpractice by ensuring this truth is widely disseminated

Gallup Uninsured Rates by State 2014

Lies by politicians have consequences on citizens. A free press is the entity whose proper function serves as a backstop to lying politicians. When a free press fails in its duties citizens are hurt. That is the case becoming more evident with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Gallup released a new study that is amazing. Two states that had the biggest drop in the uninsured rates of its citizens were Red States. Which Red States? Arkansas and Kentucky. Between 2013 and 2014 the uninsured rate in Arkansas fell by more than 11%. The uninsured rate in Kentucky fell by more than 10%. These two states are two of the poorest states in the country. They both had Democratic governors that accepted the Medicaid Expansion to Obamacare. The following table is rather revealing. The states with the largest decline in the uninsured are the ones that accepted the Medicaid Expansion to Obamacare. The state that claims itself as an economic miracle is dead last in securing healthcare insurance for … [Read more...]

Caught on Video: LA Police kills homeless man shooting as he’s on the ground (VIDEO)

Another unecessary killing by police

This looks like yet another unnecessary police killing When will it end? This seems like yet another senseless killing of an unarmed man, a homeless man. With so many police officers around, was lethal force the only option? According to the LA Times police offered the following 'detailed account'. Cmdr. Andrew Smith said officers assigned to the LAPD's Central Division and Safer Cities Initiative — a task force focused on skid row — responded to the location about noon Sunday after receiving a 911 call reporting a possible robbery. Smith said the officers approached the suspect and made contact with the man, at which point he "began fighting and physically resisting the officers." The officers attempted to take him into custody and at one point, attempted to use a Taser that Smith said was "ineffective." The man continued to resist police, Smith said, and the man and some of the officers fell to the ground. "At some point in there, a struggle over one of the officer's weapons … [Read more...]

The winter storm was not enough to stop the Texas Kos Meet-up

DailyKOS Texas Kos Group Picture

Epic Texas DailyKos Meet-Up w/ Meteor Blades, Denise Oliver-Velez, Egberto Willies, & Katherine Haenschen The rain, sleet, and snow were not enough to stop the Texas KOS meetup in Austin, Texas this weekend. One must remember Texans do not know how to drive on ice, let alone snow. Registration reached the event capacity of 175 seats. Unfortunately the weather tempered the actual attendance to between 50 and 75. We heard stories from Kossacks coming from North Texas that had near misses, slides, and more. It was evident most simply could not take the chance. The weather in Texas was brutal. The Austin, Houston, and San Antonio contingents were large as they did not have the icy weather.   NoMandates NoMandates opened the session by describing the Texas KOS group and giving examples of the impressive amount of work it has done so far. She framed the seminar.   Neeta Lind Our fearless Director of Community Building Neeta Lind (aka Navajo), NoMandates, and … [Read more...]
