If Obama wants America to cure cancer...the Republicans will fight it?


With open carry laws in effect I find that prospective  new clients are out negotiating me.


Repeal the law that says we have to kiss cop's asses.  It's unsanitary. There must be such a law,  or at least they think there is one.  But there ARE laws that say they must respect our rights.  Wish they would enforce those more often.

The Brief: Cruz Seeks to Explain Unreported Goldman Sachs Loan

by John Reynolds and Jacob Sanchez | Jan. 14, 2016
Presidential contender Ted Cruz talks to the press in Rock Rapids, Iowa on Jan. 6, 2016.

The Big Conversation

GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz responded to a news report that he failed to disclose a loan from Goldman Sachs during his 2012 Senate run by describing the problem as "an inadvertent filing question."
“Those loans had been disclosed over and over and over again on multiple filings,” the Tribune's Patrick Svitek reported Cruz as saying. “If it was the case that they were not filed exactly as the [Federal Election Commission] requires, then we’ll amend the filings, but all of the information has been public and transparent for many years, and that’s the end of that."
Cruz was reacting to a report from The New York Times that detailed low-interest loans from Goldman Sachs, which employed Cruz's wife, and from Citibank.
The Times reported the loans work against Cruz's narrative on the campaign trail that he and his wife decided "to liquidate our entire net worth" on his ultimately successful run for the Senate. The Times also reported that the disclosure of a loan from a high-profile Wall Street firm "might have conveyed the wrong impression for his candidacy. Mr. Cruz, a conservative former Texas solicitor general, was campaigning as a populist firebrand who criticized Wall Street bailouts and the influence of big banks in Washington."
Svitek reported that rival candidates for the GOP presidential nomination had already begun to pick up on that line of attack Wednesday night.
"Unreported 7 figure Goldman Sachs loans are standard for authentic anti-establishment leadrs, right? Right? Bueller?" tweeted Jim Merrill, a senior adviser to U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.

China Arrests Human Rights Lawyers As State Media Mocks Feminist For “Blabbering About The Rule of Law and Human Rights”

by jonathanturley
130px-Mao_Zedong_portraitChina has conducted another round up of human rights lawyers, including Wang Yu, the country’s most prominent woman human rights lawyer. Adding an Orwellian element to this latest outrage was China’s state media which accused Wang last year of “blabbering about the rule of law and human rights.” Wang and her colleagues have long been symbols of courage in the face of authoritarian rule, including prior detentions designed to scare them into silence.
