Hypocrisy much?

Donald Trump Jr.: Bush Family ‘Used Eminent Domain’ For Texas Rangers Stadium
GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. joined host Stephen K. Bannon on Breitbart News Daily on Monday, ahead of New Hampshire’s primary election on Tuesday, and took a swipe at former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for going after his father on the issue of eminent domain during Saturday’s GOP debate.

Trump told Bannon that there are “times that it has to be used.” For example, to build hospitals, roads and the Keystone pipeline would require the use of eminent domain.

And essential services like the Trump Taj Mahal, the Bridgeport entertainment center, or Kelo where they never even built anything.

Of course, for the really important infrastructure projects like a Scottish golf course he doesn’t even bother getting title to the land at all. And Trump gets pissed when someone messes with his own property.

OSHA Alert


OHSA is going after ammo manufacturers
Then a couple years ago OSHA approached them and said, in essence, “You need to put warning on all your products because indoor range employees are at risk from exposure to lead.”

They’re going after an ammunition manufacturer because some ranges might have inadequate ventilation.

Do they similarly require printer toner manufacturers label cartridges due to potential poor ventilation in the purchaser’s office?

Popcorn has never been tastier.

Every quadrennial election cycle, people complain that this one is the vilest election ever (which is tough to believe when you examine some of the 19th century elections). On the other hand…

  • A candidate who publicly admitted to thousands of felonies which, by statute, bar her from the office.
  • A man who may be ineligible for the office due to birth foreign birth.
  • There are three separate ‘Socialist’ parties running candidates.
  • An open socialist whose only steady employment in his life has been as an elected politician. But he’s an independent running as a Dim.
  • A candidate who defends himself against allegations that he didn’t stab someone.
  • A reality TV star who was pro-abortion, pro-gun control, pro-eminent domain, donated to Democrats is a leading Republican candidate. He wants to sue Iowa for a new ‘election’because he lost the caucus.
  • A man who thinks he should be president because his president daddy and president bro think it’s his turn.
  • The Dimwits, running two old white people, criticize the Repugnants — with a woman, a black man, and a couple of Latinos — for a lack of diversity.
  • A former Virginia governor who generally garners the reaction, “Who?”
  • A primary caucus decided by coin flip instead of re-polling until someone came up the winner.
  • A woman best known for the damage she did to a major computer company, and off-shoring or destroying thousands of jobs.
  • Former Dim President Carter is endorsing Rep Trump.
  • A candidate claims another candidate sabotaged a third candidate’s campaign by texting that he’d quit. (Which made me nostalgic for the usual New Hampshire D vs. R tactics.)
  • Trump is against immigrants taking positions from Americans, but had to import his own wives to do the job. (Apologies to whoever first publicly observed that.)
  • Canada has announced its candidacy.
  • The UK parliment debated barring Trump from the United Kingdom for his campaign rhetoric.
  • Russia’s Putin reportedly likes Trump for the job.
  • Cruz hired Bob Barr for libertarian outreach.
  • The LP currently has twelve candidates, including one with no public platform, another whose platform is ‘we should have a third party,’ some blogger who actually sounds vaguely libertarian, a clown from California in a 19th century Army uniform, and a former governor who ran and lost before.
  • There is a Prohibition Party. They want to ban alcohol, tobacco, and ‘illegal drugs’ (which I thought were banned… hence the ‘illegal’ part) because Prohibition and the War on Drugs worked so well. Oh, and they want to ban private lending, with entrepeneurs borrowing only from state banks.
  • There are at least eleven more parties who have declared candidates. Parties, not just individual independents. I’m almost afraid to see their platforms.

…this almost has to be the strangest election cycle to date, and we haven’t even had the first primary election yet.

White House Threatens to Veto Bill to Shut Down Operation Choke Point
“Requiring federal banking agencies to satisfy a written materiality requirement is unnecessary, overly burdensome, and could impede the federal banking agencies’ ability to ensure financial institutions comply with important regulatory obligations, including maintaining effective risk management and controls,” the OMB said.
