How the different snow amounts affect different parts of the country:


"To show how ruthless FBI is, I would put my own wife, daughter out on the front lines to be shot"

A former Arizona sheriff who has taken the side of cattle ranchers in Nevada said this week that he would have allowed his own wife and daughters to be shot as human shields because it would look bad for the federal government on television.

In a statement to Fox News on Monday that was first flagged by Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, former Sheriff Richard Mack talked about their strategy to put women on the front lines if a gunfight broke out between “rogue federal agents” and rancher Cliven Bundy, who reportedly owes the taxpayers more than $1 million for allowing his cattle to graze on government land.

“We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front,” he recalled. “If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.”

Snip:

“I’m sorry, that sounds horrible,” he continued. “I would have put my own wife or daughters there, and I would have been screaming bloody murder to watch them die. I would have gone next, I would have been the next one to be killed. I’m not afraid to die here. I’m willing to die here.”

Noam Chomsky just came out in support of Bernie!!!! Update: Corrected information, see post

Saz facebook feed.

UPDATE:
The site saw had a misleading headline:

Bernie Sanders Just Picked Up Support from the World’s Most Renowned Intellectual

body down in the body it says
Chomsky stated that he would ultimately back Clinton in the general election, though he did not endorse her so much as malign the competition.

I plead midnight posting madness........

So, yeah, Chomsky's remarks could be construed as support, even tho he says he will vote for Hillary to ensure Republicans do not win.
Which I think is the wrong reason for voting......ever notice how we alway seem to be forced to vote AGAINST something rather than FOR something?

I want a ballot that gives the option to vote for "None of the Above"


So it won't surprise you that Ariz. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is gonna endorse Donald Trump. in Iowa

Yep..he's gonna grab his 15 minutes of spotlight by going all the way to Iowa to endorse El Trumpeter.

Joe Arpaio, the hard-line anti-immigration sheriff from Maricopa County, Ariz., will appear with Donald J. Trump in Iowa on Tuesday and endorse his candidacy, according to Mr. Trump’s campaign.

Mr. Arpaio, who espouses some of the Republican Party’s most conservative views about undocumented immigrants, will appear with Mr. Trump in Marshalltown, a month after appearing with Mr. Trump in Arizona. Mr. Trump has made combating illegal immigration a staple of his candidacy, including a proposal to build a wall at the southern border.

Lawyer for Walter Scott Family Switches Sides to Endorse Bernie Sanders

The lawyer for the family of Walter L. Scott, who was fatally shot by a police officer in South Carolina, is withdrawing his support from Hillary Clinton and endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont on Monday afternoon.

The lawyer, State Representative Justin T. Bamberg of South Carolina, said he is switching sides because he believes Mrs. Clinton embodies establishment politics, while Mr. Sanders offers a bolder platform that will improve the lives of people in the South and across the country. The endorsement could help Mr. Sanders as he tries to win more support from black voters — especially in South Carolina — in the series of southern states that hold contests after Iowa and New Hampshire, where he is well positioned.
“Hillary Clinton is more a representation of the status quo when I think about politics or about what it means to be a Democrat,” said Mr. Bamberg, who initially endorsed Mrs. Clinton in December. “Bernie Sanders on the other hand is bold. He doesn’t think like everyone else. He is not afraid to call things as they are.”

In April in North Charleston, a police officer, Michael T. Slager, fatally shot Mr. Scott, 50, as he ran from the officer. Video of the shooting went viral and a grand jury in June indicted Mr. Slager on a murder charge.

Du-ers in deep snow....how the heck can your doggies go outside????

Never ever ever thought I would be saying thank you to G. Bush

His occupancy of the WH was SOOOOOO bad, that he has contaminated his brother !'s chances of nomination;
even the Repugs don't want another Bush in the WH.
