The White House sent this tweet today:
They think this is a democracy!
Fine, let’s vote. First, on repealing Obamacare.
Most voters view the new national health care law as bad for the country and want to repeal it.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 35% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe the trouble-plagued health care law is good for America. Fifty-five percent (55%) consider it bad for the country. Only two percent (2%) think it will have no impact.
I made a shareable and posted it to Facebook and Twitter.
Here’s what it looks like:
Feel free to share it.
Here’s video of then Sen. Obama, then Sen. Hillary Clinton, then Sen. John Kerry, then Sen. Joe Biden, then Sen. Chris Dodd, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Sen. Chuck Schumer and Sen. Harry Reid, arguing against this when they were in the minority:
“This is how democracy ends. Not with a bomb, but a gavel.”
Sen. Harry Reid triggered the nuclear option today:
The partisan battles that have paralyzed Washington in recent years took a historic turn on Thursday, when Senate Democrats eliminated filibusters for most presidential nominations, severely curtailing the political leverage of the Republican minority in the Senate and assuring an escalation of partisan warfare.
The rule change means federal judge nominees and executive-office appointments can be confirmed by a simple majority of senators, rather than the 60-vote super majority that has been required for more than two centuries.
The change does not apply to Supreme Court nominations. But the vote, mostly along party lines, reverses nearly 225 years of precedent and dramatically alters the landscape for both Democratic and Republican presidents, especially if their own political party holds a majority of, but fewer than 60, Senate seats.
It’s all about power with these guys.
A Cumberland County Tennessee father went to his children’s school to get them after school was dismissed. The school wouldn’t give them to him and the school resource officer arrested him for insisting they be turned over to him.
It looks like it’s that simple:
“School is out and they will give you your child, but it doesn’t say when now does it?”
“Tennessee state law says within a reasonable amount of time. That is fifteen minutes.”
“Put you hands behind your back.”
I don’t care what time of day it is, or what is going on in the school. When a parent says they want their kid, they should get their kid.
The only time I’d say different is if the parent were clearly drunk or high or a danger to the child.
This guy just wanted to take his kids home after school.
That got him some jail time.
Behold the Educational Industrial Complex.
