billionaires



2 billionaires running for President?  Makes me nervous...not sure why though....I'd probably sell my vote for a month's rent.  I may not be the statesman I think I am.  I'm counting on the rest of you to do the right thing.  Don't let me down the election might be important.


Flying.  I think mergers are responsible for making it just a bus ride in the sky.


Michael Bloomberg.  He's done some good things, but lost me when he wanted a law regulating the size of my coca cola.

New York Settles Case Of The Arrest Of Two Protesters For Insulting Police

by jonathanturley
215px-NypdpatchNew York city has reportedly agreed to pay two Occupy Wall Street protesters $52,000 for their arrest in 2013 after flipping off two New York City police officers on a Queens subway train. The arrests of Nicholas Thommen, 21, and Channing Creage, 26, clearly violated the first amendment and lacked probable cause of any crime. The question is not the settlement but, again, the absence of any indication of discipline of these officers for knowingly violating the constitutional rights of citizens.

Oberlin President Refuses List of Rambling Ultimatums From Black Student

by jonathanturley
krislov-marvinFormal_Seal_of_Oberlin_College,_Oberlin,_OH,_USA.svgWe have been reporting on the protests occurring on college campuses and the troubling demands sometimes made by the "Black Lives Matter" movement in terms of academic components and programs, including college newspapers. Oberlin College President Marvin Krislov finally had enough after receiving a list of rambling demands from black students -- demands declared to be nonnegotiable for the Administration. Krislov correctly refused to concede core control over the academic mission and yield to such demands which included things like the firing of certain employees and enrolling recently released prisoners.

The Brief: Ted Cruz Snags Endorsement From Rick Perry

by Jacob Sanchez and John Reynolds | Jan. 25, 2016
U.S. Sen Ted Cruz and Gov. Rick Perry at Fort Hood on April 4, 2014.

The Big Conversation

Former Gov. Rick Perry, whose own bid for the White House ended four months ago, has endorsed fellow Texan Ted Cruz for president.
Politico reported the move early this morning.
In a Sunday night interview, Perry told Politico that the GOP nominating contest "appears to be down to two people" and that between Cruz and Donald Trump, "Ted Cruz is by far the most consistent conservative in that crowd."
The Tribune's Patrick Svitek notes that Perry has been critical of Trump, calling him at one point a "cancer on conservatism." He also has supported Cruz in statements after leaving the presidential contest, "most recently praising his tax plan and defending him against backlash for his use of the term 'New York values.'”
As far as Perry's role in the upcoming crucial days before the Feb. 1 Iowa caucuses, Svitek reports that Perry will be a"full-fledged surrogate for Cruz. The campaign sees him as particularly helpful on veterans issues, which he made central to his own bid, and while he spent the final weeks of his run assailing Trump, his portfolio will not be confined to that."
