Maiello: Where Your Tax Dollars Go
Doc Cleveland: Copyright vs. Truth
A scientific study done at Princeton University indicates that the United States is no longer a Democracy. The country has now morphed into an Oligarchy. That means that the nation is no longer controlled by the people. It is now controlled by a handful of wealthy and powerful puppet masters. It also means that we are no longer in a race war; we are now in a class war. Thus, the poor and middle class, of EVERY race, are now the new niggas. So wake up, America, while you still have a chance of fighting back.

During the 2012 presidential election, voters reportedly waited on line for upwards of six hours. That wait alone is enough to deter would-be voters from going to the polls. But now residents in Florida’s most populous county will have another disincentive: they won’t be able to go to the bathroom.
Earlier this year, the Miami-Dade County Elections Department quietly implemented a policy to close the bathrooms at all polling facilities, according to disability rights lawyer Marc Dubin. Dubin said the policy change was in “direct response” to an inquiry to the Elections Department about whether they had assessed accessibility of polling place bathrooms to those with disabilities.
I watch Rachel every night. Maybe I hit five minutes, maybe I hit thirty minutes. It depends upon my mood or how interested I am in the subject matter or maybe I am enrapt in some drama on the tellie. Anyway, I get two other shots at her program after first air.
Tonight, I was enthralled.
The Majority Leader in the Wisconsin Senate, has been formally charged with heinous crimes against women.
There appears to be no allegations of murder or rape but this guy has been hitting women, grabbing women's nether parts, attacking women verbally, threatening women.... [Read more]
Paul Fishman, US Attorney for New Jersey and therefor man tasked with sorting out the sundry Christie-gate's that have entertained us since the Fort Lee lane closure kerfuffle, was seen shopping at Morty's Big and Tall, in the company of David Wildstein, former caporegime for the man whose mob nickname is "Big Chicken" (h/t Charlie Pierce)
Morty is reported to have provided Fishman with a selection of nooses in 3X, 4X, and a mammoth 5X sizes.
BENEATH THE SPIN • ERIC L. WATTREE
Faced with the policy conundrum that is posed by the choice of directing public funds towards free childcare or prison for mom and institutionalization for kids, Arizona makes the predictable and catastrophic choice.
Most of you will have heard the devastatingly sad story of Shanesha Taylor, an unemployed and homeless single mother of two, who miraculously was granted an interview for that job that Bill Clinton decided was the answer to ending "welfare as we knew it."
She had no place to leave her toddler and infant for the 45 minute interview, so she took a desperate chance. [Read more]
I recall in the late 1960's that Anthropology professors discussed the problem involved in 'aging' the primates in this NEW WORLD.
Well the 'consensus' was that 13,000 years ago, Homo Sapiens crept into our New World via the Siberian whatever....
The latest ice age gave a land cross from Siberia to the Americas (read Canada) and from that land cross, people from the East found a new home. [Read more]

On March 22 Brad Delong carried a discussion between Ezekiel Emmanuel (you know whose brother he is) and Harold Pollack.
Due to general and specific incompetence I've been unable to provide a link but if someone could do me a favor and provide one below as a comment I'd promise to demonstrate my profound gratitude either by blogging every day or just going quietly away. Your choice

Let's call this the Peyoteros revenge, or "unintended consequences bite", shall we.
Now, I am, of course, appalled (as would any right thinking person be) that the societal benefits of co-payment free birth control and insurance coverage for medical advice about the same) should be undercut by a law specifically intended to vindicate the influence of religion in the sphere of secular behaviour.
But let us be clear--the harm flows not from the unforeseen elaboration of the stated primacy of religious beliefs, but from the decision by the state to give religion special status in the first place.

Not seen anyone with this on DAG. Veteran US pilot believes the plane experienced a catastrophic in flight fire/smoke and/or decompression, the pilots steered immediately for the closest runway in Malaysia, and no one survived to land the plane. It continued on as a 'ghost plane' to points unknown. Goodfellow frankly makes more sense than most other theories from what little facts we know 'for sure' about the flight.
Goodfellow's original post here.
