One of my generic drugs went from 10.00 to 160.00!

10.00 for 90 day supply in JUuly
160.00 for same today.

I did not buy it, it is not absolutely essential, but it is very helpful.

We have to do something about this price gouging.
That smug bastard Shkreli is only the tip of the iceberg.

Bundy, 9 others indicted by federal grand jury

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A federal grand jury has indicted the leader of the armed standoff at an Oregon wildlife refuge and his followers.

Federal prosecutor Geoff Barrow says the indictment involves the 11 people arrested so far “and others,” perhaps a reference to the four holdouts still occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

The FBI arrested Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Brian Cavalier, Shawna Cox, Ryan Payne, Joseph O’Shaughnessy, Peter Santilli, Duane Ehmer, Jason Patrick and Dylan Anderson on probable cause. Six were arrested during a traffic stop along Hwy 395, others arrested at or near the refuge.

Arizona resident Jon Ritzheimer was also arrested in connection to the occupation but remains in custody in Arizona.

Each has been charged with one felony charge of conspiracy to impede officers of the United States from discharging their official duties through the use of force, intimidation or threats.

UPDATE: Reuters now says 16 indicted, but no additional names yet known.

Smoking gun.......here is what Cruz sent out just before the Iowa Caucus:


Former Flint, Mich., emergency manger Darnell Earley will be 'hunted down' by US Marshals

to receive a subpoena to testify in front of House committee, Rep. Jason Chaffetz says -

The guy decided he did not have to respond to Congressional request that he be at the hearing.

I do hope they nail him.

Democratic primary/caucus calendar and delegate counts

2,383 delegates to win the nomination.

Clinton now has 385
Bernie has 29
counting Iowa

New Hampshire ( winner take all) = 24 delegates. Feb. 9

On March 1, several states vote in Primary for a total of 865 delegates.

There is an excellent table of delegate counts per state at this link, I cannot make it copy onto this page
(but if someone can....)
One table for Dems, one table for Repubs.


Michael Moore comment on Iowa results:

An elderly Jewish socialist, whose avg contrib is $27, ends up in a TIE w/ 1 of the most famous political figures of the past 3 decades. Wow


BP logs $6.5 billion loss for 2015 as oil prices collapse

New York Daily News just out with must see photo

Look at what Bernie is posting on Twitter ( pic)

OMG, people are ROASTING Cruz @TedCruz

Morning is coming and I have to be indoors by sunrise." - #TedCruz

This is the kind of speech you'd see in the opening scene of a movie about a dystopian wasteland ruled by warlords.

Congratulations Senator Cruz! You win the Iowa Caucus, and carry on the tradition of Presidents Huckabee and Santorum

#TedCruz talks about the horrors of the Obama administration then declares "Yes we can!" hmmm, just read the prompter, Teddy.
