Passengers applauded when a family was forced off a plane after their son had an allergic reaction

How sick are people?

After a family trip to Washington, 7-year-old Giovanni boarded an Allegiant Air flight home with his mother Christina Fabian, and dad, George Alvarado.

But instead of heading back to Arizona, the family was forced to get off the plane after Giovanni had an allergic reaction and delayed takeoff, King 5 News reports. To add insult to injury: other passengers clapped as the family headed off the plane.

"He started to get hives, so we informed the flight attendant who informed us that there's dogs on every flight and just smirked, which minimized his experience for me," Fabian said. "They helped us off the plane, but as we gathered our stuff the people toward the back of the plane clapped."

Giovanni's father has terminal cancer, so the purpose of the trip was to spend some quality time together.


People are sick, sick, sick!

What Causes Poor Uneducated White People To Vote Republican?

According to a recent article by Quiet Mike, “Republicans like to say they are all about responsibility.” Then they turn around and support things like the SCOTUS decision in favor of Hobby Lobby, which takes personal responsibility away from citizens and places it in the hands of the corporation.

Their politicians lied to engage our country in a war justified by a search for nonexistent weapons of mass destruction. Now they are trying to blame the entire Iraq war on President Obama.

The Republicans advocate cutting food stamps, unemployment, education, and health care – all while cutting taxes for the wealthy. The GOP has a long history of demonizing poor people. The relatively new Tea Party crowd and the Libertarians have the reigning attitude of “go fend for yourself” when it comes to providing any type of assistance to the poor.

Republicans consistently garner a large chunk of their votes from poor, white, uneducated voters. Why? What causes poor uneducated white people to vote Republican?

Some of it may be attributed to the many gerrymandered districts. Some is due to the active voter suppression tactics the GOP has been employing not only in the present but historically as well. But those are not the only reasons for this trend.

Paul Weyrich has been labeled as one of the founding fathers of the modern conservative movement. Weyrich often proclaims that he doesn’t want people to vote. It is his contention that the fewer people who vote, the better the GOP chances are of winning elections. In this writer’s view, some of this desire to limit voting is due to racism.

Latino Leaders Slam Sanders

As Nevada vote approaches, an old immigration fight takes center stage.

With just two days left before the Nevada Democratic caucuses, high-profile Latino leaders are stepping up their support of Hillary Clinton—and taking swings at Bernie Sanders.

On a call with reporters Thursday organized by the Clinton campaign, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro, and civil rights organizer Dolores Huerta slammed Sanders' record on immigration, particularly his vote against the failed 2007 immigration reform bill.

"He really set us back, you might say, a decade by not supporting us on the immigration bill in 2007," said Huerta, a who led the United Farm Workers alongside Cesar Chavez in the 1960s. "His reputation as being a super liberal, many people followed his guide on that. That was just a devastating blow for all of us who were fighting for immigration reform and for immigrants' rights."

Samantha Bee to Mitch McConnell: (SCOTUS)

“What better way to honor America’s greatest champion of original intent than by wiping your obstructionist ass on the very document he holds so dear”

Filling Court spots is one of three presidential jobs, Bee says, along with pardoning turkeys, bombing Middle East

What if there is another Gore v. Bush scenario and the court is 4-4?

If there were a repeat of the 2000 election fraud perpetrated by the GOP, the court would be divided 4-4. That means that some district judge most likely in the state where the challenge takes place will decide who is President.

That makes the election that much more vulnerable to fraud and being stolen by the GOP.

This makes leaving the vacancy on the Supreme Court a Constitutional Crisis, the seat must be filled.

Ted Cruz and Jeff Roe are at it again, sending fake checks to get donations

There He Goes Again: Cruz Sends Out Fake ‘Checks’ In Attempt To Get Contributions

Let’s just get this out of the way before we continue: Ted Cruz is a slimy, stinking pile of human excrement who will say or do anything to win the 2016 GOP nomination. He’s lower than whale dung, and would gladly sell his soul to Lucifer (providing he hasn’t already) if it means gaining points in a tracking poll.

That said, Senator Dirtbag has now sunk to a new low.

After sending out a clearly fraudulent mailing shortly before the Iowa caucuses–which Cruz won–his campaign is now using the U.S. Mail to send New Jersey residents a “check” for $45. Sounds about right, doesn’t it? Cruz is so hated that he’s now resorting to buying votes. It’s been done before in American politics, and no doubt it still is in places.


Ted Cruz I'd slimy and dirty and he's campaign manager is probably worse than Karl Rove. He will stop at nothing to win. I have been a victim of his wrath.
