Oh Yeah, NOW You Say So

Okay, right smack dab in the middle of Neil Gorsuch’s hearing, the Supreme Court overruled him 8-0.

Honey, I gotta say that I don’t think there’s been a unanimous decision on the court in this decade.  But they all decided that Gorsuch was wrong, wrong, triple wrong.

The 2008 opinion Gorsuch wrote for a unanimous 10th Circuit took the side of a school in a case in which the parents of an autistic child argued the school wasn’t doing enough to educate the student. While the student showed educational progress in classes, he didn’t seem to retain what he’d learned. Gorsuch’s opinion, which reversed three prior rulings, said the school had complied with federal disabilities law because the student needed to show gains that were “merely more than de minims.”  (Italics mine.)

So now, Gorsuch says he’s sorry but his ruling was based on circuit precedent.

Dude, the Supreme Court is the last option for those wronged. You can’t change harm done by saying you’re sorry ten years later.

Why should Donald Trump, while under FBI investigation for what could be treason, get a Supreme Court appointment that was stolen from Barack Obama?

(By the way, my spellcheck changes Gorsuch to Grouch.)

And I’m a Jesus-Loving Law and Order Candidate

McLennan  County (think Waco) Commissioner Will Smith got a visit today by the Texas Rangers. It was not a social call and they brought handcuffs.

Commissioner Smith, who describes himself as “a lifelong Republican,” was indicted for offering a bribe to his opponent in the Republican primary.

His opponent in the Republican primary, Ben Matus, recalls —

“He was serious. He offered to pay me to drop out of the race,” Matus said at the time. “He kind of blindsided me. He told me I was wasting my time and money, and I kind of got agitated. It is my time and my money. He said it is a losing cause, but it made me want to run against him even more.”

Smith offered to “refund” Matus’ filing fee, which was $1,200.  Matus turned him down.

Smith won and then took the oath of office, swearing that he did not offer any bribes to get there.

Jones said in January he doesn’t think his offer constitutes a bribe, calling it a “simple business transaction.”

Because that’s how Republicans do bidness in Texas.

 

Good Morning, Lady Karma of Hypocrisyville

The former chair of the Colorado Republican Party and current rightwing talk radio host (translation: he’s so unsexy that he couldn’t get laid at the Chicken Ranch with a hen under each arm and a fifty dollar bill taped to his forehead), has had a visit from the Karma Fairy.

Steve Curtis spend a portion of his radio show before the November election screaming about voter fraud.

“It seems to me,” Curtis said in the 42-minute segment, “that virtually every case of voter fraud I can remember in my lifetime was committed by Democrats.”

There was “something about being a Democrat,” he said, that made people prone to criminal behavior. At multiple points, the two brought up fraudulent mail-in ballots and “double voting” specifically.

Yeah, he’s been accused of voter fraud.  Here he is, a self-described Tea Party Patriot, misusing mail-in ballots.

It seems that Curtis filled out his ex-wife’s ballot and mailed it in for her because she had divorced him and moved to South Carolina.  She called Colorado to find out how she could vote and they told her that her completed ballot had already been mailed.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

Words He Wishes He Could Take Back

Y’all, Marco Rubio on November 1, 2016 —

 

He was talking about Hillary Clinton.

Oops.

 

 

Confused

March 21, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Here’s the part I am confused about.

A man who is under investigation for selling the United States Presidential election to Russia is bragging that he is keeping another man from getting a job because the other man protested by not putting his hand over his heart at the national anthem.

See, I don’t get that.  Where the hell is the rhyme or reason to that?

President Trump patted himself on the back Monday night for allegedly helping to keep former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick unemployed.

Yeah, he literally said his uncontrollable bully tweet habit is keeping Kaepernick unemployed.

“It was reported that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump,” Trump said. “Do you believe that? I just saw that. I just saw that.”

The President of the United States is a lying tweet bully.

Ya know, Trump has accomplished nothing.  He’s under FBI investigation, he has insulted every world leader whose name he can pronounce, his health care bill is flopping around gasping like a fish on land, and his budget is DOA.  But, he’s keep Colin Kaepernick unemployed!  There’s that.

Let me tell you something.  I would rather have Colin Kaepernick for president.  At least Kaepernick has a core set of values.

Thanks to Dennis for the heads up.

My Favorite Thing Today

So right in the middle of the hearing, Trump starts tweeting about the damn hearing.  I am not kidding.

Rep. Jim Himes read the tweet to Comey.

“Thanks to the modern technology that’s in front of me right here, I’ve got a tweet from the President an hour ago saying ‘The NSA and FBI told Congress that Russia did not influence the electoral process.’ So that’s not quite accurate, that tweet?” Himes asked.

“It certainly wasn’t our intention to say that today,” Comey answered. “We don’t have any information on that subject. That’s not something that was looked at.”

Oooooohhhhh.  Busted.

I also enjoy Trey Gowdy’s adventure in made-up rumors about bad stuff that he can’t prove either.

How about we let Trump come and let Gowdy question him.  It will be a lallapalooza of crazy!
