Elana Kagan did not participate in the case. It was 8 judges voting. There are nine justices.
And Kris refused to call that out or to call out the decision itself acrossthe board. She plays favorites.
Then there's the guest. I like the ACLU. I did not care for Lee Gelernt.
Did he not have a parent growing up?
Someone damn sure should have told him to not speak with his mouth full.
And he shouldn't have needed to be told that when he's on the radio.
"Right, justice comes slow," he slurred and sloshed with what sounded like a mouth packed with food. He was on for less than nine minutes. I don't think waiting nine minutes to eat would have killed him. And it saddens me that the ACLU didn't think to go over these rules with their staff: When you are on the radio, don't be eating. It doesn't sound professional.
DC, this Saturday, at noon, Adam Kokesh is having a Dance Party at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial. Details are in the snapshot but C.I. asked that anyone who could work in a video about the Dance Off. The video that is viewed the most by noon tomorrow wins.
What about the other ones!!!!
That's my favorite. That's the one I want you to watch. You want to see the others, read the snapshot, C.I.'s got it near the top. (I believe the note that Adam was the start of tomorrow's snapshot no matter what refers to a friend begging C.I. today to open with the Feminist Majority announcement. I didn't ask though. But that's how I read that.)
"The Boob Economy Collapse - Obama Is The Problem" (Hillary Is 44):
You want to get somewhere and it is a matter of some urgency. But the driver is a boob. He does not know where he is going. He is easily distracted. He is constantly primping and gazing at himself in the mirror. He takes wrong turns. He drives into ditches. Satellite technology gizmos don’t help because he reacts too slowly to the GPS instructions. He is not prepared to make the turn when the turn is required. More gasoline, higher quality gasoline, won’t help. More speed won’t help because you succeed only in getting to the wrong places faster. What you need is a driver that knows what he is doing.
From a distance, watching the swerving boobery, the futility of the trip is easy to see. The disaster was predictable from the very beginning. If you get in a car with a boob driver, expect boobery. If you elect a boob, expect boobery and boobery on top of boobery. Nile Gardiner sees the boobery and the disaster to come for the driver and the passengers:
“In the aftermath of the hugely successful Special Forces operation that took out Osama Bin Laden and a modest spike in the polls for the president, the conventional wisdom among political elites in Britain is overwhelmingly that Obama will win another four years in the Oval Office. Add to this a widespread perception of continuing disarray in the Republican race, as well as a State Visit to London that had the chattering classes worshipping at the feet of the US president, and you can easily see why Obama’s prospects look a lot rosier from across the Atlantic.

Ultimately, the 2012 presidential election will be decided by the state of the economy, and new data released this week makes grim reading for the White House. In fact you cannot watch a US financial news network at the moment, from Bloomberg to CNBC to Fox Business, without a great deal of pessimism about the dire condition of the world’s biggest economy. 66 percent of Americans now worry the federal government will run out of money in the face of towering public debts.
To say this has been an extremely bad week for the Obama administration on the economic front would be a serious understatement. As The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, home prices in the United States have sunk to their lowest levels since 2002, falling 4.2 percent in the first quarter of 2011. At the same time, employment growth is stalling, with only 38,000 Americans added to the workforce in May, the smallest increase since September. This compares with 179,000 jobs added in April. There has also been a steep slowdown in the manufacturing sector, and a downturn in the stock market on the back of weak economic news.”
All I want for 2012 Christmas is a new president and Barack out of the White House. And, by the way, Memorial Day Kat published three reviews: "Kat's Korner: Give 'em the keys" on Death Cab for Cutie, "Kat's Korner: It was nothing, he insisted loudly" on Ben Harper and "Kat's Korner: The Master of the Teen Drama" on Phil Spector. Make a point to check them out if you haven't already.
