If the Sanford, Florida police department did not stink before, it positively reeks now. I'm iPad blogging and don't have the time or energy to dig up each link, but today I learned that the cops coached witnesses to say that they heard the shooter crying for help, that someone has systematically leaked private information to smear the victim's character and that the Martin's body did not have any sign of the kind of hand and knuckle injuries that you get when you severely beat someone with your bare hands, especially someone with a hundred pounds of muscle on you. I learned that the morgue identified the young victim right away but filed him as a 'John doe' until much later when his father filed a missing persons report. I read that the Sanford city council asked the DOJ to step in after they were utterly overwhelmed by police racism complaints at their last meeting.
The Martin/Zimmerman police report said that the shooter had a broken nose and grass all over his clothes, and Zimmerman claimed that his victim banged his head repeatedly on the road. Now ABC news has video of the night when they brought Zimmerman in for questioning and – surprise! – his shaved head looks pristine, his nose looks fine and his clothes look like he just washed them. If the cops thought he might have blood on him then protocol requires them to touch him with gloves. They seem fine with bare hands.
Anyone care to explain how this does not stink as bad as it seems? Anyone?
Notable humorist and magical panties enthusiast Willard 2.0 shares an amusing anecdote from his family history:
"One of most humorous [stories] I think relates to my father. You may remember my father, George Romney, was president of an automobile company called American Motors … They had a factory in Michigan, and they had a factory in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and another one in Milwaukee, Wisconsin," said Romney. "And as the president of the company he decided to close the factory in Michigan and move all the production to Wisconsin. Now later he decided to run for governor of Michigan and so you can imagine that having closed the factory and moved all the production to Wisconsin was a very sensitive issue to him, for his campaign."
Romney said he recalled a parade in which the school band marching with his father's campaign only knew the Wisconsin fight song, not the Michigan song.
"So every time they would start playing 'On Wisconsin, on Wisconsin,' my dad's political people would jump up and down and try to get them to stop, because they didn't want people in Michigan to be reminded that my dad had moved production to Wisconsin," said Romney, laughing.
That's so funny, Willard, you madcap raconteur! Oh, it just must have had all of the other swells at the club in stitches, simply in stitches! I bet Bunny Bixler wetted herself, didn't she, when she heard that old chestnut, eh?
There's nothing like how the misfortune of others–that you caused by laying them off–is inadvertently funny when it gets in the way of your plans to pursue oligarchy. Oh, you scamp, tell us another story!
Theocracy on the March - Jeebus, some people! Anyway a Xristian Xrazy Organization had a revelation and now is praying for the angels who helped the Founding Fathers to frame the US Constitution to smite Obamacare, or something:
"The strategy for the nine US Supreme Court judges that are hearing the case of constitutionality on Obamacare involves asking the Father to send angels to prick the hearts of the judges that they would follow the original intent of the framers of the Constitution."
I think it is safe to say that there a lot of pricks sitting on the bench. AmIRight? (The Oak Initiative!)
Because deep down inside, you hope you wake up tomorrow and discover Tyler Durden is real. Bank of America handed their failed CEO a $7.5 million golden parachute -- after he oversaw the bank losing more than half it's stock value.
Remember this the next time a republican fuckwit grabs their skirts and jumps up on the table shrieking about the lack of transparency in government. They don't want it transparency, they just want to accuse Democrats of not wanting transparency. If they really gave a damn about it, they wouldn't have killed the amendment to a communications bill that was offered by Democratic Representative Anna Eshoo of California that would have disclosed the names of donors who kicked in more than $10,000 for third-oarty advertising.
