    They are not, in fact, sisters; they are Sister missionaries. Sisters in this case is the title given to them during their missions.

    I’ll let Coach Dan Hawkins take it from here:

    “…go play intramurals, brother.”

    The news article from Der Standard is not what it’s being made out to be!
    Remember the “studies” that said conservatives were somehow not as smart as liberals and what not, well that’s basically happening here.

    Austria has their elections later this year and the ÖVP (the conservatives) and the FPÖ (the more or less libertarian party) are doing really, really well in the polls right now. The FPÖ jumped something like 10% and looks like they could be the next front runner. They’re basically the UKIP of Austria. While they are not completely libertarian in our sense of the word (they’re in favor of direct democracy–like Switzerland), they are gaining support because they want out of the EU (something that UKIP is also lobbying for from the UK).

    Long story short, this story was meant to dissuade people from voting for what they considered “far-right extremists”.

    While yes, no nominee was ever filibustered, it is important to remember Andrew Johnson was impeached because of his dealings with the Secretary of War. He wanted more leniency in the South after the Civil War and tried to get a moderate into the position through the backdoor.

    Ironically, they were asking the same questions back then: how much power does the federal government have in the respective states? Unfortunately, at that time, more than we’d like to think. Until the compromise to elect Rutherford B. Hayes, “states’ rights” meant the federal government could dictate civil law in the respective states until deemed able by Congress.

    The Blaze is single-handedly destroying this poor woman’s senate bid…. Me gusta.
