Busy at work




Wanna REALLY save lives?  Take 90% of the airport security budget and feed people that are starving.  Quit being stupid, and let granny keep her shoes on.   Hell let cops do it. They can tell if you are guilty by looking at you. And see at night at 70 mph if your seat belt is on. They are magical.


I can't breathe because of Bill Cosby.


I want a government that regrets how we have wrongfully  harmed humans instead of one continually looking for more people to hurt.

Death to Americans?  I'm sure ISIS consultants are just telling them to be patient... between cops killing Americans and the new open carry laws, Americans will kill more Americans than ISIS. ISIS doesn't have to throw one bomb or shoot one gun or utter one hate slogan.  We'll just do it to ourselves.

Truck Driver Ignores Signs Banning Trucks and Limiting Weight and Destroys Indiana Historic Bridge . . . Faces $135 Fine

by jonathanturley
UnknownWe often discuss the long-standing question in criminal law of the right balance between offenses and sanctions. A sanction needs to generally achieve restoration for victims and deter others in an ideal world. That does not appear to be the case in Paoli, Indiana where a historic bridge from 1880 collapsed after a track driver violated weight and access signs by driving her truck over the bridge. The sanction? A possible $135 for disregarding a posted sign. That's it. In the meantime, the bridge will have to be replaced and traffic halted for weeks or months due to her incredibly reckless and thoughtless act.

Female Firefighter Conditionally Graduated And Allowed Six Times To Pass Physical Requirements

by jonathanturley
FDNYflagThere is a controversy in the New York fire department where FDNY candidate Wendy Tapia will be allowed to graduate despite failed the physical test to become a firefighter six times. Adding to the controversy, Lt. Elizabeth Osgood, who objected to Tapia’s special treatment, was allegedly barred from promotion for months. Tania's treatment has raised objections that the FDNY is trying to avoid a gender discrimination lawsuit after it was sued successfully for $98 million for racial discrimination.

Obama's 'Boots on the Ground': U.S. Special Forces Are Sent to Tackle Global Threats

By MARK MAZZETTI and ERIC SCHMITT

While the president has repeatedly said he opposes sending Americans to fight in far-flung countries, his administration carves out exceptions for Special Operations and some officials resort to linguistic contortions to mask the forces' combat role.

The Brief: Cruz To Huddle With Evangelicals in West Texas

by John Reynolds | Dec. 28, 2015
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz greets supporters Sunday after a rally in Trussville, Alabama. The Texas senator is on a weeklong tour of nine mostly southern states.

The Big Conversation

GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz heads to a ranch today in the West Texas town of Cisco to meet with about 300 pastors and faith leaders.
The Tribune's Patrick Svitek wrote last week that the meeting at the ranch owned by two of Cruz's most generous political donors underscores how important he sees unifying support of evangelical leaders behind his candidacy:
"The meeting is being organized at least in part by Keep the Promise PAC, one of four main super PACs supporting Cruz. Keep the Promise PAC is headed by David Barton, an influential Christian activist and author who formerly served as the vice chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. ... As they have thrown their support behind Cruz, conservative leaders have urged like-minded activists to follow their lead, hoping to avoid previous elections in which their support was diluted among a number of candidates."
Not everyone attending the Cisco summit is already in the Cruz camp. Svitek wrote that Samuel Rodriguez, leader of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, heads to the gathering intending to ask how Cruz plans to broaden his appeal among Hispanics and African Americans.
"Engaging white evangelicals is nice and it's wonderful, but it doesn't get you across the goal line. It doesn't," Rodriguez said. "Ask Mitt Romney and ask John McCain. White evangelical support for the GOP does not equal occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue."
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Bud Kennedy noted that area of West Texas is also listening to the message being sentby GOP candidate Donald Trump:
"The location is also strategic: Cisco and Eastland County are in a maverick-minded part of West Texas traditionally prone to support outsider candidates such as Trump. This time around, Trump has support, but 'this is pretty much a solid Cruz environment,' said Cisco Republican Zach Maxwell, a Cruz voter and a political adviser to local candidates. ... 'Trump is saying the things everybody is thinking to a tee. He says what the people want to hear, but the question is whether he’d actually act on it.'”
