U.S. District Court Judge Arthur Schwab has a history of judicial bias and has been removed from several cases in the past for judicial indiscretions. And point to note, “Since the ruling focuses on Juarez-Escobar's case, its legal impact on the executive action is limited. ThinkProgress' Ian Millhiser notes that Schwab did not issue an injunction to halt the executive actions or state definitively that Juarez-Escobar would even be eligible absent Schwab's ruling.” So while this has some weight, it’s not much more than tossing a small snowball on the slope. We need to keep aware of whether it rolls and grows, or just stops dead. And it will stop dead unless some more people get behind it and keep pushing.

Governing vs. Giving

John, humans prior to about 10,000 years ago didn't get equal shares of the kill or the gathered. Those who did the work got the first choice and the lion's share. Once they were satisfied, then the rest was divied out by value to the family, clan, or tribe. The elderly or crippled with skills or wisdom to pass on were cared for. Those who did nothing, especially if they were otherwise capable, got the scraps, if any, or starved as appropriate.
As odd as you may find it, Mr Paul and the Tea Partiers are the only hope left to recovery from the damage already done, and the complete impending destruction of the United States as the bastion of freedom and safety in the world. Certainly the icons of the Democrats and the Republicans were appropriately chosen: Jerky Jackasses and Ineffectual Elephants.

Tortured Reasoning

Was a single life saved by waterboarding KSM that wasn't already saved from the discovery of, and action on, other information by other sources? No. Are there other methods of interrogation that are just as, if not more, effective than terror and pain? Yes.
Expecting people to remain abstinent is a losing proposition. The fact is, we most definitely are animals rooting around for sex. And most people's behavior is motivated more by their gonads than by their brains. THAT is human nature. Has been for hundreds of thousands of years, which is the only reason we're still around as a species. So how many pregnant mothers who don't want their children is or has Cortney O'Brien sponsored to carry to term? How many of those children, if any, has she adopted and is raising? A dozen? 6? 2? 1? 0?
Sounds like Dr. Charles Luther's smart bullets. Where's Sgt. Jack R. Ramsay when you need him?

Feds Banish Sex Stereotypes in Classrooms

This whole bit that "transgender girls (who were assigned a male gender at birth) are not boys"; and that "their consistent and affirmed gender identity as girls is as deep-seated as the gender identity of non-transgender girls" is demonstrably a crock of male bovine digestive end product and I can prove it. Reach out and grab the balls of every transgender girl, assuming they haven't medically castrated them already, and yank as hard as you can. If they identify as girls, then they won't feel a thing. If they scream, then they're males, not females; and the only thing wrong with them is between the ears, not between their legs..
I'd rather have a snarky hot head who's protective of our freedoms than a courteous, polite seeming schemer who's a fascist at heart.
Too bad I don't have a child that goes to that school. I'd dress up as Saint Nicholas and go to their bloody concert and damn anyone who tried to stop me.
Too bad Boehner never crosses the street. At least then we could hope he'd be run over and killed by a D.C. cab or bus.

Maybe it's time for all Christian chaplains in the U.S. Military to resign and file a class action suit against the U.S. government for creation of a hostile workplace.
