Ex-AFL-CIO Organizing Director Deletes Offensive #Ferguson Tweet, Apologizes To Cops, Blames “Right-Wing Haters” For Deaths

Following his posting on Twitter earlier this week that police “should suffer for what they did,” former AFL-CIO organizing director Stewart Acuff has since removed the tweet and apologized for offending “all the good, responsible, & accountable police officers especially union brothers & sisters.” As riots were raging in Ferguson, MO over the police shooting death of an Michael Brown, Acuff had posted on his | Read More »

R.L. Miller and the California Democratic Establishment’s #waronwomen. #ca26

If you are wondering how it is that Jeff Gorell (R CAND, California-26) is managing to put Julia Brownley in such electoral fear – in California, forsooth! – well, it’s because Brownley is an awful candidate, of course. And she has awful friends, too. Let’s go to the Twitter, shall we? First off, meet some of Jeff’s supporters. Women in Ventura County support @JeffGorell for | Read More »

Ferguson, Missouri and Race

I have been loathe to comment on the recent racial disturbances in Ferguson, Missouri prompted by the death of Michael Brown.  The reasons are simple: we have witnessed this scene before and we are likely to witness it again.  The thing that most aggravates me is the rush to judgment on both sides.  The African-American community views this differently than some in the white community. | Read More »

Image Credit: Political-Humor.org I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self. Aristotle The great mind, in a free land, is free from the law.

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Bilks Taxpayers out of Millions

Just over three years ago, subsequent to the Dodd-Frank financial “reform” bill passing, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau came into existence. As Elizabeth Warren’s intellectual baby, it should be no surprise to conservatives that the CFPB is an exercise in the biggest kind of government. However, in the third year of the CFPB’s existence, a bevy of stories have broken that underline that the bureau | Read More »
