Putin kills journalists.  Trump admires Putin.  Carry on.  Do what you have to do.

Anyone investigating or caring about  the fact that Carl Rove 

set up a private server for Bush and then deleted 30 million

 emails SMH!!!

Not sure Putin knew that  all he had to do was say something nice about Donald, Trump would so easily  fall in love with him.  I'm thinking Putin is feeling a little uncomfortable and awkward. 

Roland Darby takes the banner spot with this great photo. It 

reminds me of my childhood days spent on my 


farm. Nicely done!

 I know it's silly.  At my age it should take more than a pat on the back to make me so happy.


Yet the rich were still very very rich. Had mansions, servants and yachts.  We were easily the most powerful country in the world with the largest middle class ever.  That cemented the envy of other countries.  Schools worked. Highways  and bridges were the best.  Our military was strong.  


the future?  Butler? Warrior? Worker?



Planned Parenthood Law Criticized As Major Rollback on Free Speech and Press Freedoms

by jonathanturley
200px-Logo_plannedparenthoodWe have often discussed how free speech is rapidly being curtailed on college campuses in the name of fighting intolerance and ill-defined "microaggressions." California lawmakers are showing the same dismissive attitude in legislation that is a response to the recent scandal over secretly taped statements by Planned Parenthood officials. The videotapes by activists caused a national backlash against Planned Parenthood so liberal politicians are moving to stamp out future "gotcha" films by sharply curtailing free speech and press freedoms. Democratic state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez, and other Democrats dismissed vehement objections from the ACLU, civil liberties, and press freedom groups.


The Brief: Cornyn Declines to Back Cruz in Senate Primary

U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (l) and John Cornyn

The Big Conversation

On Wednesday night, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn told CNN he would not endorse Ted Cruz in a potential primary next cycle.
When asked about a possible showdown between U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Austin, and Cruz, Cornyn said he is “not going to get involved in any primary races, particularly with my colleagues in the Senate.” He continued, "We'll see what happens, but we've got plenty to worry about between now and November 2016 before we start worrying about November 2018."
As the Tribune’s Patrick Svitek reports, Cornyn’s remarks echo what Cruz said in 2014, when he opted to not comment on primary races and declined to endorse Cornyn during his primary campaign. Although Cruz has not yet commented, Cornyn’s remarks fuel speculation that there may be bad blood between the two men.
After Cruz declined to endorse GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention,McCaul was encouraged by GOP donors and state politicians to consider running against Cruz for the Senate seat. Although McCaul hasn't ruled out running in 2018, he said that challenging Cruz wasn’t his top priority.
