Hey, believe what I'm saying now, and please stop bringing up what I said then:
This seems like a ditinction that's hard to justify:
Today, the Obama administration will reveal new updates to its guidelines on racial profiling. Politico explains the new guidelines will tighten “limits on the practice but still allow federal law enforcement agencies to employ it at airports and along the border.”
Sorry, Gov. Pence, but your strong and misguided support for a national shield law took us down the road on which an Alabama state senator thinks he has the right and ability to decide who a "legitimate" journalist is:
Freedom of the press is essential. Freedom of the press is important to me. Freedom of the press is not going anywhere in Alabama.
OK, we've done awesome. Now let's do truly awful. You'll have to look hard to find anything as entertaning (in a watching-a-train-wreck kind of way) as this cheesy, cringe-inducing country song about the virtues of Hillary Clinton. Yessiribob, that's gonna make me run right out and sign up for her campaign. Because, you know . . .
Nice to see Indiana in the vanguard once again, becoming one of 17 stares (led, naturally, by Texas) filing a lawsuit against President Obama's decision to create legal status for millions of illegal immigrants by executive action:
Kathleen Sebelius: You know, the American people are a pretty stupid bunch.
Still, Sebelius didn’t dispute the point that many Americans don’t fully understand how health insurance and the Affordable Care Act work, including the trade-offs involved in expanding coverage.
Via The Daily Caller, Planned Parenthood is seriously irony-impaired:
Planned Parenthood joined the #BlackLivesMatter Twitter protest Monday afternoon, tweeting, “We are joining #Ferguson organizers and protesters in DC today — standing in solidarity with you! #HandsUpWalkOut #BlackLivesMatter”
President Obama has unfortunately decided to add to the racial demagoguery in the wake of Ferguson rather than trying to stop it. But he has half a good idea here:
President Obama on Monday will announce $263 million in funding for law enforcement agencies to purchase body-worn cameras and improve training.
This whole "using Ferguson to push a racial-victims narrative" is now officially completely out of hand.
The St. Louis Rams made a silent statement about the decision by a Ferguson, Mo., grand jury not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old, last August.
If it's true, goodbye and good riddance:
Liberalism, to paraphrase the late Preston Sturges (he was referring to chivalry), is “not only dead, it’s decomposed.”
Liberalism n’existe pas — and almost everybody knows it. It is completely out of ideas. Obama was the last gasp of a dying ideology. All they have left is some pathetic and teetering identity politics.
Don't look now, but I think Black Friday's time has come and gone:
Even after doling out discounts on electronics and clothes, retailers struggled to entice shoppers to Black Friday sales events, putting pressure on the industry as it heads into the final weeks of the holiday season.
Typical progressive, politically correct mixture of smugness and ignorance:
President Obama quite succinctly summed up the absurdity of the Republicans' issues with his immigration reform in Chicago yesterday, arguing that perhaps the only people who can legitimately be pissed off about illegal immigrants are Native Americans.
[. . .]
I know I've expressed my dismay/disgust with the media's unprofessional and malicious show of journalistic incompetence in the Ferguson case. Time and time again it has been shown that the primary agenda of the press is not to provide, thoroughly and fairly, the facts Americans need to be informed citizens.
But let me vent a little more, please.
I think this guy gets it exactly right:
Suck it up, voter ID opponents:
Voter ID laws do not swing many elections, because people without identification do not represent a large share of registered voters; they are particularly unlikely to vote; and a share of them will vote Republican.
If this isn't the most disturbing thing you've read this week, you may already be suffering from pathological nonjudgmentalism:
I have a very 2014 question for you: How would you respond if you found out that a man living down the street regularly has sexual intercourse with a horse?
