"WASHINGTON — A House Republican chairman has told a dozen government agencies to exclude communications with his committee from requests made by news organizations, advocacy groups and others through the Freedom of Information Act.....

 

while Congress does have that right, it is the height of hypocrisy for him to take such extraordinary measures to shield himself from the oversight of the American public,” Waters said. “People should ask themselves: What is he trying to hide?”

Oklahoma Governor Signs Anti-Protest Law Imposing Huge Fines on “Conspirator” Organizations-

 

 

"A statute aimed at suppressing protests against oil and gas pipelines has been signed into law in Oklahoma, as a related bill advances through the state legislature. The two bills are part of a nationwide trend in anti-protest laws meant to significantly increase legal penalties for civil disobedience. The Oklahoma law signed this week is unique, however, in its broad targeting of groups “conspiring” with protesters accused of trespassing. It takes aim at environmental organizations.....

Somebody please explain the logic of this to me.  Is another female going to drive a Pence man into a frenzy?  Can't they control themselves?

It's like he's some kind of sex fiend who cannot have dinner

with a woman without going out of control. Amusing or weird

or maybe a bit of both.


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

Yup... sums him up in his bio intro:

 

A former U.S. congressman and governor for the state of Indiana, President Mike Pence is proud to serve the white and Christian population of America for more than two decades.

Born in Columbus, Indiana, on June 7, 1959, to wholesome heterosexual couple Edward and Nancy Pence, Michael Richard Pence was named after his grandfather Richard, who emigrated to America from the non-Muslim-majority country of Ireland, settling with his family in the American Midwest.

 

They forgot to include the straight and the male with the white and (far right) Christian population.

Republicans Accuse Voters of Using Town Halls to Express Themselves-

 

 

 

"Saying “Enough is enough,” Republican senators on Friday angrily accused their constituents of “intentionally and opportunistically” using recent town-hall meetings as vehicles to express themselves.

One of the angriest Republicans, Senator Tom Cotton, of Arkansas, said he was “disgusted and offended” by the “flagrant exercise of freedom of speech” he witnessed at his town hall.

 

“The spectacle of people standing up, asking their elected representatives questions, and expecting them to answer is the most disgraceful thing I’ve ever experienced,” Cotton said. “This will not stand.”...

 

“We need to send a strong message to these people,” he said. “A town-hall meeting is not a time for everyone in town to come to a hall and meet.”...

 

http://www.newyorker...social_facebook

 

:lol:

 

 

How dare these constituents question their representatives and senators!  The nerve of them!  

 

I know this is meant to be funny, and it is, but a lot of them probably do feel this way. Someone needs to remind these jerks like Cotton who pays their salaries and who they are supposed to be working for.

If you watch it to the end it gets pretty hilarious when they expose Graham's utter hypocrisy concerning the Supreme Court Justice vote.

Huckaboo is so obsessed with anything "gay" (and this guy literally thinks about what gay men and lesbians do behind closed doors practically every day and in his dreams) that he likely was insinuating EXACTLY what folks think he was insinuating. This is the same guy who insisted that, if transgender men should be allowed into a ladies restroom, then he too should be allowed to play "dress up" so he can take a peek at the ladies in the stalls. As if that is something transgenders go to restrooms to do.

 

Of course, when Kim Davis refused to sign same-sex marriage certificates, Huckaboo raced to her side like a hound dog after a pork chop. Lindsey Graham put Huckaboo in his place at the second GOP debate in September 2015 and you can tell that Huckaboo wasn't a happy camper. To Huckaboo, to consider gays "human" and allowed equal rights under the constitution is totally un-Republican.

OK, I don't hear it and Graham began as my representative in Congress before becoming a US Senator so I am pretty familiar with everything said about him.  This is not the first time this "concern" has come up in state politics.

Don't know who these nuts are, but they infered something Huckabee did not imply, much less state.

"Which uniform" could mean Dem vs. GOP, Air Force vs. Senator, Conservative vs. Liberal, etc.

FYI:  Lindsay Graham has never been married and has no children.

Might add that FIVE hard right Republcans ran against him in the S.C.  GOP primary in 2014 and he got over 50% of the primary vote.

 

I am not defending Graham, but by S.C. standards he is more moderate than most.  Of course, he is far too deeply into supporting the Military-Industrial-Political Complex and all it wants.

 

Does he lie?  He's a politician playing a political game.

Senate Republicans Just Slashed Retirement Help For Low Income Americans-

 

"The myRA program was designed to give low income workers a choice for how they want to save for retirement....

 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren:

“[The years Republicans] haven’t put up for a vote … a single piece of original legislation to help working families.

“For years, the Republican-controlled Congress has done nothing to help the 55 million Americans who don’t have an employer-provided retirement plan.”
