Mom Jailed for Lawn, Now Faces More Time For Ivy On Her House!

Karen Holloway went to jail for her overgrown yard – now they want to get her for her ivy! The waitress and mother of four is now listed in in the local “mugshot” rag along with rapists and child molesters – and now they want to put her in jail for days or even weeks.

According to a friend who also attended her hearing this week, Karen of four noticed that a code enforcement officer was idling in front of her house when she walked up to his car and asked what he was doing there. He replied “You’ll find out tomorrow in court.” Karen, not being the type to give up easily, pressed him, and he pointed to the ivy growing on her historic home, and said it was an issue that she needed to take care of before her next hearing.

“But lots of houses have ivy on them! It’s beautiful. What’s the matter with ivy?” she said.

“This ain’t England” was his reply.

The GOP meme that the midterms were a referendum on President Obama is bullshit

That's merely them trying to tarnish his legacy before his term as even ended. Everyone who voted for Republicans were people who always hated Democrats and the President.

With his supporters (who are the majority, thank you very much), his legacy is safe and sound.

The midterms, if anything, were a confirmation that our entire political system has been sabotaged by decades of voter disenfranchisement. It began with the Republicans, of course, just check out the Powell Memo. But Big Money decided to play both sides against the middle and have infiltrated Democrats as well, by a much smaller extent, of course.

Never forget that whatever the President does or doesn't do, the Republicans are always going to say that he's wrong. His executive actions will be depicted as "tyranny," even if they are all precedented. His public statements will be called "narcism," even if he speaks in terms of "we" and "us" instead of "me" and "I." Everything that they think up will be used to lodge non-existent scandals against him, even if they investigate those so-called "scandals" and find that they have no merit. Crazy wingers will take those fantasies and run with them, even if they have no proof outside of their own heads that he's ever done anything wrong. And most of all, when you regard everything that they do, it proves that just about all of them are pretty fucking racist. (If you're having a bit of problem with me classifying all of them as racist, I'm prepared to debate that point.)

Most of all, the things that they say about the President only exists within their own echo chamber, for their own benefit.

Living in the real world for them is an anathema. It's just plenty sickening to see that they've poisoned the well for everyone else as well.
