Methinks this may be part of the problem.

For there surely is something NOT QUITE RIGHT about it. Did you know that George Washington was so rich that he wanted to reject his presidential salary? Wealth has always been a part of American politics, but, recently, political wealth crossed a new milestone (most Congresspeople are millionaires). This map from HowMuch.net shows the richest politician in every state, and reveals just how rich they really are. Source: HowMuch.net There are 34 states with Republicans as their richest politicians, 15 with Democrats, and one with an Independent. Interestingly, every single one is in Congress. There are no executive branch politicians, including governors, whatsoever. Geographic Influence In many places, the results were predictable. No richest-in-state Democrats can be found in the South, but there is a cluster in New England. There are a few surprises, though. For instance, the richest...

All Americans are clearly not created equal.

What conclusion is a sane, rational person supposed to draw from this story and the concluding contrasting story? Chicago Woman Who Filmed Brutal Kidnapping And Torture Of Disabled Teen Sentenced To Community Service by Tyler Durden Dec 10, 2017 11:55 AM A 19 year old Chicago woman who live-streamed the racially charged kidnapping, torture and mutilation of a mentaly disabled teen was given 200 hours of community service and four years of probation on Friday.

This is nothing short of murder. Funny think is this is really murder, this is really hands up don’t shoot – WHERE are all the protesters? Where are the msm? Where is EVERYONE?   Authored by Scott Shackford of Reason.com Arizona jurors watched the video below, which shows former Mesa, Arizona, police officer Philip Mitchell Brailsford shooting and killing a man who was begging for his life and attempting to follow the officer’s orders to crawl down a hotel hallway. Yesterday, the jurors found Brailsford not guilty of second-degree murder and reckless manslaughter. Do you agree? (Warning: The video is pretty graphic.) The incident occurred in January 2016. Daniel Shaver apparently was showing off a pellet gun, and it was visible through the hotel room window. This promped somebody to call to the hotel front desk, which prompted a call to the police. So it...

YOU ARE AN IDIOT.  Sure, republicans MIGHT pull a similar outrage, we are all fallen men after all, but the republicans did not pull this outrage, the dems did and EVERY AMERICAN should be outraged. And they certainly should never vote for a democrat unless they approve of this type of behavior for I can assure you if they ever regain the White House the next time it will be worse. Tea Party Lawsuits Over IRS Targeting Settled for Peanuts by TDB Nov 2, 2017 Via The Daily Bell At first glance, it might seem like some justice has finally been delivered. The Department of Justice has settled a class-action lawsuit brought by Tea Party groups from across the country. The government has admitted that what happened was a violation of rights. Back before the 2012 election, the IRS started scrutinizing certain non-profit applications more closely. Political organizations seeking tax exempt...

One cannot help but ask, WHAT ARE THEY NOT WANTING THE CITIZENS OF THE USA TO SEE? House goes to court to protect secrecy of records An effort to fight a FOIA lawsuit for proposals on health care reform wins bipartisan backing. By JOSH GERSTEIN 09/15/2017 08:21 PM EDT Updated 09/15/2017 09:03 PM EDT The House of Representatives is taking legal action to make sure that federal agencies don’t release congressional records to the public through the Freedom of Information Act. The move, which came Friday evening in a lawsuit demanding access to discussions about health care reform between the Trump administration and Congress, threatens to cut off a mechanism liberal watchdog groups were using to gain insight into closed-door negotiations on a variety of policy issues. In legal papers filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, House General Counsel Thomas Hungar said the move to protect...

Working hard for the people.

It is so comforting to know that our elected officials WORK so hard to do what is BEST for the American people. Just take a look at this letter from Representative Roger Williams. It is such a relief to know the he and his colleagues “on the House Committee on Financial Services are prioritizing this issue”. Thank goodness they have “plans to hold a hearing to determine the facts in the near future” and are going to eventually CLOSE THE BARN DOOR AFTER THE HORSE HAS GONE. I can’t tell you how grateful I am that Roger and his colleagues “are working hard to ensure this is addressed as quickly as possible”. I do have one question though, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO ADDRESS NOW and shouldn’t they have ADDRESSED it BEFORE some sloppily run, questionably staffed (Equifax Chief Information Security Officer, “the person who was responsible for...
