The traitorous Tundra Twattle is once again calling for a "Convention of States" even though that is virtually an impossibility.

So on her Facebook page Palin's ghostwriter is linking to Bristol's ghostwriter about a subject that NONE of them actually understand.

Here is what Benedict Idiot is saying now: 

Tired of Government Gone Wild? Here's What We Can Do About It! Our Founders put a special sort of “emergency cord” right into Article V of our Constitution as a last resort to rein in our wayward federal government drunk on its own power. That article gives states the power to call a convention for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution. 

Three states have already successfully passed legislation calling for a Convention of the States, and right now it’s Virginia’s turn. We need every patriot to step up and remind lawmakers in the Old Dominion why we support the Convention of States. 

By calling a Convention of the States, average citizens can stop the federal spending spree, power grabs, and other abuses by proposing amendments to rein in the federal government. After the states draft, debate, and vote upon these proposed amendments, they will then be sent to all 50 states for ratification, and three-quarters of the states must agree for any of the proposed amendments to be ratified. 

The beauty of this process is that neither the President nor Congress has the authority to stop it. It is truly in the hands of We the People. This idea is really the last recourse of the citizens to rein in DC and restore our country to a Constitutionally limited federal government.

Palin then sends you to Brancy's blog where visitors are being urged to contact their Senators so that they can get this "Convention of States" off the ground. 

However what Palin is leaving out is that three states is NOT a groundswell to enact this measure. In fact it is barely a bump.

As I have written before a Convention of States requires two thirds of the states to sign on, and correct me if I'm wrong but three states is a hell of a long way from two thirds of 50.

Not only that but even if they were able to get those two thirds to call for amending the Constitution, then it has to be ratified by three quarters of all states.

Who in the hell thinks that's even remotely possible?

Oh yeah.

OH well, what the hell?

If this is the kind of thing that keeps her few remaining followers busy while the rest of us deal with real problems, then I guess there is no harm.

I mean what else do they have to do besides fight over control of the TV in the day room, finger paint pictures for relatives to hang on their refrigerators, and hoard their medications for their own version of "Fun Freaky Fridays."

White customer asks black waitress if she would like to see where he hung her grandpa.

According to a probable cause statement filed by Maryville Public Safety Officer Adam James, Gaa was taken into custody after ordering breakfast at a local business on Sunday, Jan. 25, where he was waited on by an African-American employee. 

The employee, according to James’ statement, asked Gaa if he wanted white or wheat toast, and Gaa allegedly responded by saying, “I’m prejudiced. I’ll take white.” 

Moments later, Gaa is said to have approached the employee, allegedly grabbing her arm in a manner that caused bruising and asking her if she “liked to party.” 

According to the probable cause statement, Gaa then allegedly said, “I have a place I would like to take you where I hung your grandpa.” 

The report stated the employee then left the part of the business open to the public and returned to a kitchen area. 

James reported that Gaa initially denied making the statements, then allegedly admitted that he committed at least some of the acts described above.

According to the officer's report Gaa had categorized different ethnic groups as "good" or "bad" using highly prejudicial language. Go figure.

He was released from jail on $4,900 bond.

It kind of makes me wonder if there aren't White Supremacist tours of Missouri where groups of racists go around pointing to trees where they once strung up black folks.

Could work as a GOP fundraiser.

Best explanation of the Superbowl ever!

Well hell that makes all kinds of sense.

New bill in Texas would allow teachers to use deadly force against students in order to protect school property. Seriously?

Courtesy of The Houston Chronicle: 

Teachers would be able to use deadly force against students, and would be safe from prosecution, under legislation filed last week in the state House. 

The Teacher’s Protection Act by Rep. Dan Flynn, R-Van, would allow educators to use force or deadly force if they feel they need to protect themselves against a student or anyone else on school grounds. It also allows teachers to use deadly force to protect school property, and to avoid prosecution “for injury or death that results from the educator’s use of deadly force.”

To be clear here when they say "deadly force" they are talking guns. After all this IS Texas.

Apparently there is already a law in place that allows any adult to carry a gun on school grounds as long as they have permission from the principal. 

Look I am all in favor of allowing teachers to defend themselves against violence from students, and to protect others as well, but shooting an unarmed child, regardless of HOW big and violent they are, is simply insane.

And the idea that you could end their life simply because they got angry and broke a window or a computer is even more insane.

Things can be replaced, children cannot.

Which begs the question, "WTF is going on in Texas?"

My favorite Superbowl commercial so far.

Okay now THAT'S pretty funny.

Bill Maher eviscerates the Republicans, and Sarah Palin, concerning their sudden interest in protecting the middle class.

"Now this raises a troubling question, which is, if Sarah Palin suffers a stroke how will we know?"

Best line ever!


Texas Governor to declare Feb. 2 as "Chris Kyle Day." Well of course he is.

Let's face it, a man famous for killing over a hundred men, women, and children with a gun, how could he not get a day named after him?

Add to that the fact that he is also a famous liar and to be honest I don't see how Texas had any choice.

I imagine that Florida will now have to declare a "George Zimmerman Day" just to save face.

Hillary Clinton to delay the launch of her campaign.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'll launch the campaign when I'm damn good and ready."
Courtesy of Politico: 

Hillary Clinton, expecting no major challenge for the Democratic nomination, is strongly considering delaying the formal launch of her presidential campaign until July, three months later than originally planned, top Democrats tell POLITICO. 

The delay from the original April target would give her more time to develop her message, policy and organization, without the chaos and spotlight of a public campaign.

A Democrat familiar with Clinton’s thinking said: “She doesn’t feel under any pressure, and they see no primary challenge on the horizon. If you have the luxury of time, you take it.” 

Advisers said the biggest reason for the delay is simple: She feels no rush. 

“She doesn’t want to feel pressured by the press to do something before she’s ready,” one adviser said. “She’s better off as a noncandidate. Why not wait?” 

Okay I am of two minds on this.

On the one hand, I hate a tease.

On the other hand if she waits long enough the Republicans may destroy each other and she will gain the White House completely unopposed. 

Of course she is clearly already running a campaign, it is just all behind the scenes and secretive which also makes me a little uncomfortable.

I guess personally I feel Hillary should stop fucking around and actually launch the campaign and hope for a Democratic challenger to help her sharpen her game before she bitchslaps Jeb Bush into retirement.

But hey, that's just me.

Thoughts?

I know it's wrong for us to enjoy or laugh at this. But.....

Shouldn't be watching this.

Going to stop now.

Yep, that's enough.

I wonder if they felt that in other parts of the building?

Just a few more times, then I'm definitely going to stop.

You know I'm learning that I really don't like Chris Christie.

Imagine that.

Well it looks like George Zimmerman walks away from yet another brush with the law unscathed.

Courtesy of the Washington Times:

George Zimmerman — the Florida homeowner who made national headlines for shooting and killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin — will not be charged with aggravated assault stemming from a Jan. 9 incident after all. 

State Attorney Phil Archer announced Friday that his office is dropping its case against Mr. Zimmerman, who was accused of throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend, ClickOrlando.com reported. 

“While it is clear that the officers had probably cause to arrest Mr. Zimmerman, which was affirmed by the circuit court judge at initial appearances, the subsequent recantation by the victim of her initial statement along with new documents provided by the victim and her attorney precludes my office from proceeding further,” said Mr. Archer in the media outlet. 

According to the State Attorney's office the woman decided not to press charges and recanted part of her story.

I guess the only way that George Zimmerman will ever have to face justice is if he actually kills somebody.

Oh wait, that didn't happen either.

Stephen Fry on confronting God at the pearly gates.

"It's not right. It's utterly, utterly evil. Why should I respect a capricious, mean minded, stupid god who creates a world which is so full of injustice and pain?"

I love the interviewers face at the end of this response. He looks like he wants to literally crawl away.

I have so much respect for this man. I cannot begin to tell you.

Cartoon of the day.

Mocking the moron.

A great way top start every morning.
