No, I am not kidding. I wish I were. The NRA is telling kids to shoot BB guns inside the house. Because what could possibly go wrong?
Did anyone check YouTube for a motive?
Oh, wait that a different Obama's Watergate, aka Fast & Furious.
I think Watergate traumatized the GOP. They see Watergates everywhere now. And Nazis. They see a lot of those, too.

Spent the day at a conference, folks. Anyone care to regale me with the Cliff Notes version of the day's commenting.
(I know, I know, I know. B'zi!B'zi!B'zi! Yesterday's thread up to 2300 now, and another 250 on today's thread. But, other than that, Mrs Lincoln...?)
The State of Texas mandates bounce house operators to carry more liability insurance than fertilizer plants: http://www.dallasnews.com/news/west-explosion/headlines/20130508-liability-policy-not-required-at-plants-like-west-fertilizer-although-facility-had-limited-coverage.ece
But , hey, we're open for bidness!
Also, while over the years I've had many issues with the DMN, they are doing yeoman's work in this area. It's like they've suddenly remembered they're a newspaper.
Just a friendly reminder, today is Lost Sock Memorial day. So a moment of silence for all our foot warmers lost to what I am convinced is a secret organization of sock-stealing gnomes.
Aaaaaaaaand another loss for hatred and bigotry.
Gay marriage passes in Minnesota House
If I was a rightwing bigot, I'd be very sad right now. All my pet causes are going the way of the dodo.
But I'm not, so I'm happy.
@paulejb Convene a Congressional Investigation. Surely it must be Obama's fault!
@MementoMori I thought that was Solyndra, or maybe Plant Parenthood, wait wait it was Acorn, now it was his Birth Certificate, can someone please hand me a score card so that I can keep track. How many times can we impeach this guy anyway?
Barack Milhouse Obama.
@MementoMori I'm genuinely surprised I've yet to hear the term Benghazi-gate.
While Obama was snug in his bed.
@kbanginmotown Benghazi Benghazi Creationist Science Test Benghazi Millennials Benghazi Gay Marriage in Delaware Benghazi
@Sue_N The DMN has always had great articles. In depth work on issues that you don't find anywhere else. It even has fairly liberal editorials. But I don't think the owner of the paper reads the articles. At the end of the day, they're conservative and they want conservatives in office because business trumps everything.
@Sue_N Perhaps one day Texas will remember they actually serve the people and not the corporations. Ehh who and I kidding.
say Hail Stalin our greatest, Allah, 3 times and you'll find all the left ones. The right ones will forever be gone. To remind you about 'sumthin.
I think some socks are like Black Widows. They kill and eat their mates. It's why you can never find that other sock.
Anyone else notice that 'Jason Collins' seems to be the new 'Sandra Fluke' with the rightwing bigots? You'd think they would've learned their lesson the first time.
I guess haters gotta hate.
It actually appears that hatred and bigotry is on the March. First Minnesota and tomorrow the world. Wonder what Jason Collins thinks of all this? Wonder what his female former fiancee thinks of it?
Wait a minute, I thought Minnesota was part of Real Amurrica! Michele won't be happy that her state has fallen to the forces of evil.
Though I bet Marcus plans one he'll of a party...
And vote to impeach him 34 times, too.
'Cause clearly Obama wasn't in Cairo to throw us off the scent
Well, considering they're on round 35 for ACA....
@mantisdragon91 That's just crazy talk, man.
Jason Collins is the male Sandra Fluke. Just another huckster looking for the main chance.
I did notice. Clear channel is losing hundreds of millions after Rush reared his facial arse and it's not like bigotry and misogyny is working that well for 'wingers. This goes to show you that stupidity might be a party flavor, but it tends to flock on one side of the spectrum.
It's clear enough what paulejb thinks of it, though.
No wonders there.
@fitty_three I though Israel was our 51st state?
And Libya's our 51st state.
Well how else could Obama have kept Osama quiet. See! Even their names are similar!
WAKE UP SHEEPLE!
The Soviets you say? And who did we pay to fight the Soviets? Osama Bin Laden! Clearly Obama lied about killing him and he's sitting in a bunker somewhere planning how to destroy America!
And we can't let Iran and Assad and the Muslim Brotherhood get away with this so we must bomb them all!
Because, what you really want is to lynch him. You'll never stop with the Obamahate until he is.
He snuck into our house yesterday and stole my gun and my daughters' piggy bank.
