State Senator Courtney Master Builder
Gene Fraise's Folly Is Now Formal Boat Anchor Around Tom Courtney's Oversight Neck
"Senator Tom Courtney, a Democrat, lives about 20 miles from the not-yet-opened prison and prison officials briefed him on the situation Tuesday. “First off, they said that the pipes never froze,” Courtney said this afternoon
. “They said they turned them off because they thought they would freeze.”"
Ft. Madison's yet to be usable prison is a monument to former Gov. Chet Culver
. Culver and his administration seemed more concerned about handing out project labor agreements for Fraise's Folly than seeing things were done right.
Our State Senator Courtney should have been in charge of building the new prison with his own money on the line.
The penitentiary project would have been thoroughly reviewed. The job would have been done right and on time. Just like remodeling Senator Courtney's house a few years ago, union labor would have gotten no preferential treatment

A Poodle That Knows He's Lunch
Scott Walker - Too Nice! Obama a Christian?
What's Next - Shoe Size?
"Do I think Obama is a Christian? Do I look like his biographer? Why not ask me his shoe size next? Maybe his preferred Sleep Number setting? Truly, sir, this line of questioning is the dumbest thing I’ve encountered since the last time I encountered a reporter from the Washington Post. Why in the name of all that is holy are you quizzing me about the president’s religion? Why don’t you quiz him? Oh, that’s right, you’re a groveling coward and a pathetic excuse for a journalist. You forget that you’re job is to get to the truth and enlighten the people, not to seek out Republicans for cheap gotcha moments. You, sir, are a fraud, a disgrace, and an embarrassment to what’s left of your dying profession. This president has prosecuted, spied on, and stifled the media, yet you still carry his water like a spineless vassal. Why don’t you shine his shoes while you’re at it? You should be questioning authority, not shielding it from scrutiny, you shameless hack. I will not legitimize you by answering this question. Instead, I will pray that the Holy Spirit sees fit to endow you with even a shred of integrity and courage, so that you might one day decide to do something that in some way resembles journalism. Until then, please leave my presence before I become physically ill. Thank you, sir, good night."
Obama's Fix For the VA - Stolen Valor
Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald apologized Monday for misstating that he served in the military’s special forces
McDonald made the erroneous claim while speaking to a homeless veteran during a segment that aired last month on “CBS Evening News.”
In a statement released Monday by the VA, McDonald said: “While I was in Los Angeles, engaging a homeless individual to determine his veteran status, I asked the man where he had served in the military. He responded that he had served in special forces. I incorrectly stated that I had been in special forces. That was inaccurate and I apologize to anyone that was offended by my misstatement.”
The VA website says McDonald is an Army veteran who served with the 82nd Airborne Division. The Huffington Post website, which first reported on McDonald’s mistake, noted Monday that the 82nd is not considered part of special forces.
McDonald said he remains committed “to the ongoing effort to reform VA.”

Obama Goes Hands-On
Obama: You know, Christians were just as bad as ISIS a few centuries ago
This Isn't The Middle Ages Numbnuts
"...the familiar argument President Barack Obama made at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday. After conceding that there will likely always be those who will seek to “hijack religion for their own murderous ends,” he reminded his audience that Islam is merely following a dark path forged centuries ago by Christians.
“Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ
,” Obama said. “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”
Obama also denounced Islamic State terrorists for professing to stand up for Islam when they were actually “betraying it.”
“We see ISIL, a brutal vicious death cult that in the name of religion carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism,” he said criticizing them for “claiming the mantle of religious authority for such actions.""
Two Propeller Heads
Brian Williams is an honest man, says … Dan Rather; Update: Contradictory accounts?
"What makes Williams’ admission worse, according to one person familiar with the situation, is that he had been counseled in the past by senior NBC News executives to stop telling the story in public
. The advice, this person said, was not heeded. One person familiar with current NBC News operations disputed that information.
Williams’ version of the story has never been allowed in NBC News programs, according to three people familiar with the unit. Indeed, in a March 2003 episode of “Dateline,” Williams described the helicopter trip accurately. “On the ground, we learned the Chinook ahead of us was almost blown out of the sky,” he said while narrating a report."
Levin: US Has ‘Identity Crisis’
"“Nothing has changed since yesterday, zero, our policies haven’t changed at all. The president hasn’t ordered massive strikes on the enemy, nothing, zero…by next Monday this will be a faint memory of a man being cooked to death by the Islamonazis. Then they’ll have to figure out some other way to get somebody’s attention, and one day that some other way will be to strike America, again” he stated.
“We’re having a bit of an identity crisis in this country as a result of what our government and these politicians are doing. I think there is a rejection of our traditions and our customs, and our values…and now we’re regressing” Levin added.
, “Obama’s tolerance for misery, not his misery, he has no tolerance for even people disagreeing with him. Obama’s tolerance for misery, that is the misery of others is very high. He’s not really moved by it, whether it occurs in Africa, whether it occurs in the Middle East, the streets of Paris, just another day, no big deal.””

You were so right so many times about Tim Scott! We just keep electing tax-and-spend-Democrats.
The difference with Tim Scott? We knew what were getting. Over and over and bend over.
