You've got to appreciate the sheer fucking nerve of Congressional Republicans…

THEY run up the bills, voting for deficit exploding wars, tax cuts and all kinds of corporate welfare.

THEY refuse to raise the revenue to pay those bills.

THEY threaten the full faith and credit of the United States by threatening to politicize the raising of the Debt Ceiling in order to create leverage against the President.


THEY have the temerity to blame the President for causing the problem.


As a Michigan Wolverine fan through and through, I only have one thing to say about tonight's game:

DUers and KOSers made a difference in Milford, DE

"THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! Because of people here, The Democratic Underground, and the Daily Kos sharing, calling, and emailing the school district about the racist playground signs in Milford Delaware, Milford School District Superintendent Dr. Phyllis Kohel personally went out and took the signs down this afternoon. According to Dr. Kohel, who’s been superintendent for less than a year, the signs were up when she took the position, and she didn’t take much notice of them. Immediately, upon being made aware of them, she took them down. (RA)

hey! look at the internet getting shit done!


It's time to play TALIBAN or REPUBLICAN!

I'm loving this: Federal Court Rules Flipping Off Police Is Constitutional (FUCK YEAH!)

WASHINGTON -- A police officer can't pull you over and arrest you just because you gave him the finger, a federal appeals court declared Thursday.

In a 14-page opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit ruled that the "ancient gesture of insult is not the basis for a reasonable suspicion of a traffic violation or impending criminal activity."

John Swartz and his wife Judy Mayton-Swartz had sued two police officers who arrested Swartz in May 2006 after he flipped off an officer who was using a radar device at an intersection in St. Johnsville, N.Y. Swartz was later charged with a violation of New York's disorderly conduct statute, but the charges were dismissed on speedy trial grounds.

A federal judge in the Northern District of New York granted summary judgement to the officers in July 2011, but the Court of Appeals on Thursday erased that decision and ordered the lower court to take up the case again.

Richard Insogna, the officer who stopped Swartz and his wife when they arrived at their destination, claimed he pulled the couple over because he believed Swartz was "trying to get my attention for some reason." The appeals court didn't buy that explanation, ruling that the "nearly universal recognition that this gesture is an insult deprives such an interpretation of reasonableness."
