Angry man with middle eastern heritage..explosives training..unregisterd gun conviction

Seen by some, as being unhinged for his propensity to carry on vindictive tirades, followed by crying jags.

This man has had more than a few run-ins with the law, including a grand jury indictment for a felony. He has also been connected to arson

His middle eastern ties are to a nation that is awash with Hezzbollah

He has "taken over" a house of representatives committee, and is holding "hostages"..

This man is armed, dangerous , and weepy..

He is this guy

If he were not a republican, he might be in deep doo-doo..


see how reciting facts can be tweaked? It's how the current media operates.. It;s how Benghazzzzzzzzzzi became a household word ..

Darrell Issa - Car-thief / arsonist / scumbag

Time to revisit this oldie thread.. Lots of good Issa-info

A few (Martin Bashir started it last week) are starting to "review" his past..

FEMA offers GRANTS to communities for public shelters

While googling a bit, I also noticed that some communities voted AGAINST coming up with the amount the communities have to put up (a lot less than building one themselves), and in a few cases they have shut them down when they DO have them, because they "feared" lawsuits because the access does not meet ADA requirements.. (somehow I think people would be willing to sign waivers in order to have someone carry them inside)


The shelter has been used successfully many times, including the historic storms and tornadoes that hammered Alabama in April 2011. Following that federally declared disaster, one of the worst to hit the state, Governor Bentley vowed to make more safe rooms the legacy of that disaster.

here's another option


Mika & Joe & the crew are in Oklahoma? Why?

There are too many "helpful" newsers there already..

California teenager is heading to Harvard after winning a science prize.. Recharge your cellphone in


California teenager is heading to Harvard after winning a science prize
Eesha Khare developed a tiny supercapacitor to speed battery charging
Her device could be used for automobile batteries in the future, she said
"I will be setting the world on fire," Khare says
Recharge your cellphone in 20 seconds

(CNN) -- A tiny device that can recharge cell phone batteries in as little as 30 seconds won 18-year-old Eesha Khare a major science award that will help fund her college education at Harvard University. Khare traveled from her California home to Phoenix last week for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, where her invention was honored as one of two winners of Young Scientist Awards. "I'm in a daze. I can't believe this happened," Khare, a senior at Lynbrook High School in Saratoga, told CNN affiliate KPIX 5. Khare's device, a black, rectangular type of supercapacitor just over an inch long, can charge a cell phone battery in 20 to 30 seconds, she said. "I developed a new supercapacitor, which is basically an energy storage device which can hold a lot of energy in a small amount of volume," she told KPIX 5. The technology may also be able to speed up charging of automobile batteries, she said.


The award includes a $50,000 prize that will come in handy when Khare heads to Harvard in the fall, she told KPIX 5. With a laugh, she predicted that "I will be setting the world on fire."

In announcing the winners of what it billed as the "world's largest high school research competition," Intel cited Khare for recognizing "the crucial need for energy-efficient storage devices" as the world rapidly adopts portable electronics.


Has there been an explanation for why the 4th-5th &6th graders were evacuated

from that school and the k-3 kids had to "hug a wall" before they perished when the school blew away?

How is it that there was time to evacuate some, but not all of the kids?

Aren't we all a bit sad for the freshman class of repubicans?

Think about ALL the important legislation through the years that they also missed out on.. At least their dear Leader is giving them all a chance to re-vote on health care ..

Think of the tears on their pillows every night when they think of all the other "cool laws" they never had a chance at...

Civil Rights
WWII declaration
Women's Suffrage
Prohibition (Part 1)
Prohibition (Part 2)

Why not just start every session with an up or down vote on every law we ever passed

"Clarity" (as it pertains to non-profits)

NO POLITICS AT ALL...EVER (as tax-exempt)

No endorsements EVER and NO ads against others or policies you don't like. (as tax-exempt)

If you MUST do these things, identify your donors and be aware that there is NO TAX EXEMPTION for you or for them.

They can still donate and you can still slime away..but not as a tax-exempt entity.

Be as political as you like, but pay TAXES on what you collect, and account for what you spend & how.

No matter the party.

These are BUSINESSES..they provide ZERO "social welfare".

This goes for churches as well (AFAIAC)

Preach away, sing & worship, but do NOT POLITICIZE.

If the congregants want to organize outside the church, let them,, but keep it OUT of church... OR PAY TAXES...

Getting a handle on the sexual assaults in the military


and recruit SVU cops and off-the-base prosecutors to pursue the cases, and work ON the bases..

Make it a no-tolerance policy. One strike, you're out.

My guess is that things would suddenly start changing.
