Even as he faces a two felony charges for abuse of power at home in Texas, Gov. Rick Perry is undeterred and plans to continue courting national voters ahead of his expected 2016 presidential run.Why would you expect any different? The people who back Perry don't read the news, and, if they do, don't believe anything that the far right talking heads don't tell them.

The is justified protest and then there are the thugs who take advantage of unrest for their own benefit. We need to be past the situation where a young black man is shot down for the color of his skin. On the other side, we need to tend to that small group of people who loot and burn the very neighborhoods that are the center of the unrest. We need fewer pictures like this one and more pictures like the young black men protecting stores in their neighborhood from that minority of rioters.

And let us also remember those killed in this country by gun violence and ask the simple question in both cases ...
... when is it enough.

CPAC Christie, in other words, bears no meaningful resemblance to New Jersey Christie.[source]
It's primary season for Republicans--and silly season for every sensible American Person--as the Republicans rush to the right in their attempt to prove to the big money that they are more conservative than the next guy. It's sad that they can't just be themselves, but the need to bow down to the big money conservative fat cats outweighs any ethical considerations in their rush to get elected. CPAC has just concluded with most contenders for the Republican vote showed up and bowed down to the rich conservative contributors. It would be funny if it weren't so impactful on our governing process. The influence of money on our political process is shameful. Politicians are more influenced by political contributions than anything else and the people who blindly follow large contributors while driving themselves into poverty are sad.

Conservative Republicans must be exstatic. They have managed to deny long-term benefits to millions of people who have been unable to find jobs for more than 6 months' More money available for corporate wellare And, after all, to their minds, helpping the rich is what it's all about. It's absolutely disgusting that those same fiscally conservative Republicans are the same onew who trumpet their "Christianity". The economy just isn"t where it should be' People still need help if we are to get tings to where they need to be. If you want to save money, reduce the corporate welfare and save LOTS of money.
