The most transparent administration in American history.
What it says and what it does are too different matters.
Judge Berman in Manhattan says that he is imposing a harsher sentence involving physical confinement because D’Souza made a political statement (accusing the prosecutor of politically inspired prosecution). That’s pretty black and white. Free speech gets you confinement.
When judges take sides and squelch free political speech we are in trouble.
I saw a car plastered with lefty bumper stickers the other day at the grocery store. There were multiple Obama stickers and multiple stickers with slogans of peace. At this point doesn’t one remove one or the other?
Why do you think?
Wow, things just got really weird in the Senate Intelligence Committee, and awesome. I am very pleased to see this. I think the move on ISIS is a political one and that is just tragic. It will be more tragic if we go in there. Obama has no legitimacy at this point domestically and has even less in the overseas arena. Frankly the administration appears willing to sacrifice the lives of Americans so that it can keep the Senate.
Yeah, I said it.
Not surprising. I know a number of people in the medical field, mostly on the logistics side who are up in arms over Obamacare. Nobody knows what all the coding is. The codes coming in are all wrong. There are too many codes. Doctors aren’t being compensated correctly. Patients are confused as to who is paying for what. And I live where people are relatively savvy as to healthcare issues. I’m just down the road from a large medical school. I can only imagine what it’s like in other parts of the country.
I’ll bet that’ll be a fun return.
On the surface this ruling sounds like a win for “workers,” but sadly it’s not. If the government can keep businesses from firing people, indeed in this case force CNN to REHIRE fired workers, businesses will simply choose not to hire new people.
I can understand why paying ransom is counter to larger policy goals but ransoms are paid all the time. In fact one can buy a Kindnap and Ransom (K&R) insurance policy from a multitude of insurers.
One has to wonder, had the kidnapped been high level executives versus relatively powerless reporters whether the US government would have threatened the families of the executives with prosecution. My bet is the government would have let it slide.
