    This from the man who said he’d never ever vote for Ted Cruz. I’m looking at his whiner’s list and seeing everyone of these things addressed by Ted, Ben, Marco (who is a little hit and miss), and even Donald Trump on some things.

    His comment that true leaders “… would offer new, fresh ideas to the American people”.
    Oddly enough the new fresh ideas that were first offered when we wrote the Constitution were not created in a political vacuum. These are people who had lived through almost every stupid idea that we’re stuck with today, Socialism, Government over regulation, no private property ownership, and cronyism.

    Mark may be a successful businessman, but even that no longer qualifies as a plus these days, because it often means that they have had to purchase influence in some way to maintain or improve their lifestyle or business opportunities.

    If I hear Ted and Ben talking about the wisdom of what we have in the Constitution it may be worth looking into the reasoning behind why it may be wise to do so. Human nature is why the document was written the way it was, and they did their best to take that into account in the various Articles granting very limited power to government.

    Mark could do himself a world of good spending less time on the blog site and take a little moment to learn Constitutional history.

    We’ve already done bad ideas, and it’s time to look back at good ideas that worked for a lot of years.

    Ben Carson, still remains high on the list of Presidential Candidates at out place. He is just below Ted Cruz and above Marco Rubia and Dan Trump (tied at our place for 3rd.

    Time to put on the “Big Boy panties”.

    I watched the game yesterday and didn’t see anything that just shouted out “talent”.
    I can see where he’s gone looking for role models.

    They’re a special kind of critter.
    A hippo…critter.
    And that Madelin Half-bightperson is more Hippo than critter.

    Odd, the AdChoice that played before the video clip was for a Dell laptop. LOL.

    Kasich quote – “When ya get to see St. Peter he’s not gonna ask, ‘Did you balance the budget?’ He’s going to say, whether he’s Peter or whether he’s Jacob, ‘What’d you do for the least of those?’”

    I guess he has a hard time seeing that these little innocent unborn children are the least of those.
    This, I believe, is what is meant by those who are in the gall of bitterness.

    He’ll show up dressed as the Cable Guy wearing the sleeveless shirt and a NASCAR cap, drinking beer out of a tall plastic cup and yelling, “GO Broncos!” All while talking with a Southern accent.

    Git ‘er done Jeb. Your campaign is toast.

    Kasich on the other hand will show up dressed as a college Economics professor wearing a pin-striped shirt with a pullover cardigan and topped with a courderoy jacket with sleeve patches, and will be smoking a pipe, and will begin his opening remarks with , “Thank you class for your attention.” To wit the camera will catch two of the Moderators dozing off in the front row.

    If you take the overall percentage of votes a candidate receives, then divide it by the number of visits made, it should provide you with a good comparative number on a candidate’s effectiveness rating. I’d expect Cruz, Trump, or Rubio to be in that 0.60 – 0.75 range, whereas Bush, Christie, and Kasich will be in that 0.006 – 0.009 range.

    I would think you’d then be able to take that number and divide the dollars spent campaigning in that state to see who the biggest looser are…and I think we can already tell how that math is going to come out.

    Their tally difference was due to an oversight of not correctly counting the dead attending the caucuses.

  • February 5, 2016 at 2:58am

    Watched it three times.
    Saw only one white guy in the place, a customer at the end of the clip who was finally coming into as the departing felon was crawling out the broken glass.Everyone else…not so white or even Hispanic looking.

    Clerk should have teed up a couple of balls and worked on that bad slice he’s been having trouble with.

    There are such things as monopoly laws. This is not a monopoly of all pharmaceuticals but might be able to qualify as a class of medications.

    My understanding was that in some cases there are competing meds made available at far cheaper costs. If the Supreme Courth (wrongfully and unconstitutionally) determined the holder of GM stocks and contracts could have the government modify the terms of their contracts then what would prevent Congress from modifying the terms of his company’s patents? (Not the best solution since it relies upon Congress acting unconstitutionally, but hey that’s what they do these days.)

    Perhaps a better option would be to allow a class of patients impacted by the confiscatory pricing of the life sustaining drugs, and open a suit for damages, pain and suffering, andfor punitive awards. Put that one on the fast track for trial and I doubt that they’d get a whole lot of sympathy form a jury or judge.

    Remember the old flashbulbs used in cameras years ago where reporter-photographers just blew a flash-bulb off, pushed a button and ejected the spent bulb onto the floor and people just walked over the spent ones laying on the floor? That one of the floor is you Jeb. The glass is crunching under American’s feet and all we want is to scrape the bottom of our shoes off.

    Go home Jeb. Have a nice life spending the millions of dollars the family has to blow now. Please just leave the wearied people of this nation alone. We’ve had enough of the failed Bush family ideas as well as a face full of the Clintons. Your family help setup the reign of terror that we’re living under. We don’t need your “leadership” or your “strength” or your ideas. We just need you to let yourself out the back door after turning off the lights. Please just have mercy on us all and go. We’ll think the better of you for doing so.

    Found video of California Jam –
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKZ7O8202gU

    It looks like Larry Dunn was actually on the keyboards, not drums for the California Jam concert and it was April 6, 1974.

    Sincere sympathy for your loss, and thank yous to the family and friends of Maurice White.

    I was a student at Denver East High when they did a concert assembly for the student body. One of their band members was Larry Dunn, a young man who played in the band and orchestra during the time I was attending where I also played a wind instrument. Larry played the Baritone, then he started to master a host of instruments including, trumpet, trombone, woodwinds and drums.

    My cousin and I were up in the band–room the day that Larry was talking with Mr. T (Tagliavore) our band & orchestra instructor, about leaving school to go to L.A. and make it big. Mr. T. begged him to finish school and asked him, “Do you know how many other bands head off to L.A. to make it big and never achieve fame?” Larry packed up that week and left with Maurice and the band cir. 1971.

    The next I heard from Earth Wind and Fire was in about the summer of 1974 when they were televising a big rock concert event with several bands. It was called California Jam. They introduced a group called “Earth Wind and Fire” and immediately I wondered if that was Maurice White’s group that had headed out to L.A. a few years before. I looked at the drummer and said, “That looks like Larry Dunn”. After the set of songs I think it was Maurice who introduced everyone playing so when he said, “…and on the drums we have Larry Dunn” my jaw dropped. They made it big!

    Loved the music from the band. We’ll miss Maurice.

    There are two KEY powers held by the House of Representative, the power of the Purse Stings and the Power to Impeach.

    You have a lawless President and Congress fails to exercise either of these two powers, and under Paul Ryan, he seems less willing than the previous Barstool Johnny Boehner.

    While I respect your abilities as an attorney and in your investigations by your Committee, I fail to see the House do anything to put the brakes on this overt DISREGARD for Congress. This includes you Trey. You voted to support unsustainable spending in budget deals. So shaddup and do something besides tweeting.

    Second worst President in my lifetime.

    Ted, go show Peanut Boy and Islamobama how it’s done.

    Now he can charge himself confiscatory rates to process his citizenship application forms.

  • [2] February 4, 2016 at 4:02pm

    Too bad he wasn’t going for terminally stupid, ’cause he really has that disease.

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and Jeb Bush really need to form a speakers club where they can spend their evenings standing at a pulpit talking into a microphone that faces 100 mirrors, just to make them feel like someone out there cares.

    I’d sooner have Carly up there over any of those 3.
