Keepin’ Us Safe, Part 465


Jean Weber of Destin filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security after her 95-year-old mother was detained and extensively searched last Saturday while trying to board a plane to fly to Michigan to be with family members during the final stages of her battle with leukemia.

Her mother, who was in a wheelchair, was asked to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search.

“It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,” Weber said Friday. “Here is my mother, 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, and then this.”

Just Another Nail in the Coffin


Today, in the case of Sorrell vs. IMS Health Inc., the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Vermont law that banned the use of physician prescription drug records for marketing purposes, ruling 6-3 that free-speech rights are more important than medical privacy concerns. “Attorneys for the pharmaceutical companies argued the law discriminated against them…” So everyone can rest comfortably now, reassured that the pharmaceutical industry's free speech rights are no longer subject to oppression at the hands of the confidentiality of your doctor's prescription pad.

One For the Team

When I get in a discussion where I start naming names of the Repubs who have many more ‘sex problems’ than Democrats I either hear “Well, both sides do it” (not to the same extent, or level of hypocrisy) or “But…but…CLINTON”.

Sorry it’s a link, but click anyway. Remind me why David “Diaper” Vitter paid prostitutes to spank him but not only didn’t resign but got a standing ovation when he returned to the Senate?

It’s All Those Greedy Teachers, Part 486

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie had to take an official helicopter and a limo to catch some of his son’s baseball game. It’s good to be the King:


“And only a Republican criminal oligarch would call for sacrifices to be made by working-class people when this corrupt piece of shit is pretending that he's the president taking Marine One chopper rides that cost hundreds in taxpayer funds just to catch a few innings of a high school baseball game.”
