Move to amend has legs.....

... or at least that's what they tell me in their latest e mail. See besides daily talking points from Rove, Koch brothers, and Americans for Prosperity I also get daily e mails from MoveOn and Move To Amend which I guess makes me part of their groups also since I signed up for them just like Children Of Liberty.
But I digress. Here's what the latest e mail had to say in part- "Since September 2009 when we formed Move to Amend, on the eve of the infamous Supreme Court decision your support has grown this movement by leaps and bounds:

GOP cuts funding request to fight Ebola BY MORE THAN HALF

http://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/217115-gop-cuts-obamas-ebola-fundin...

"House Republicans indicated Tuesday that they will provide less than half of the White House's funding request to fight Ebola in the next government spending bill.

According to a source familiar with the negotiations, House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) agreed as of Tuesday morning to spend a total of $40 million to fight the epidemic in the 2015 spending bill.

Todd Grayson: Corporate Toadie, Koch-Sucker, Republican A-hole

Like most Republicans, Todd Grayson doesn't know when to shut his mouth (or shut off his computer and smartphone) when it comes to things like domestic violence and womens' rights.

UT Professor doesn't practice what he preaches

Karl Rove will be speaking at the University of Toledo next week as part of its Jesup Scott Honors College Distinguished Lecture Series. UT’s College of Business sent out an email to its faculty and staff indicating it had nine tickets available to distribute.

Professor Dale Dwyer replied to everyone to whom the email was sent with the following:

No thanks. I have no interest in hearing that guy spew hate.

Interesting isn’t it? I guess Dwyer understands that he’s safe in sending a hateful response because it refers to a Republican.

Can you imagine what would have happened if Dwyer would have sent out the same response to an email about tickets to a speech by Jesse Jackson? Al Sharpton? Al Gore?

And that’s just one part of the hypocrisy and irony of Dwyer’s email.

" The CBO reported in January that the Defense Department’s health-care costs will rise from $49 billion in 2014 to $70 billion in 2028 (in inflation-adjusted dollars). That is an increase of about 40 percent in real terms; as a result, health care will account for 11 percent of the defense budget in 2028, up from an already astounding 9 percent today.

Think any scientist with any intention of getting a federal research grant for himself or his university would reply to Brown with, "Why, yes, senator, I don't think the evidence to date is anywhere close to conclusive regarding man-made climate change. In fact, no one has sufficiently explained to me why we no longer call it global warming." Questioning climate change is a career killer for those in science and academics. Too much money and the potential for government-sanctioned scorn are on the line.

Elizabeth Warren on Fighting Back Against Wall St. Giants

"In Oklahoma, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her brothers grew up in “an America that invested in kids like us and helped build a future where we could flourish.” But, as she writes in her memoir, A Fighting Chance, “Today the game is rigged – rigged to work for those who have money and power… The optimism that defines us as a people has been beaten and bruised. It doesn’t have to be this way.”

You Read It Here First

And I stated it nearly a year ago, right here on Swamp Bubbles!
I have no special incite about Republican politics. It just seemed to me that the best qualified, most intelligent of the Bush family was being ignored by too many people in the discussion of who might be a strong Presidential candidate in 2016. In addition, members of the Bush family have established so many ties to so many political activists throughout the nation, how could Jeb be overlooked?

Sweeping legislation planned in the form of the ANAA act

The ANAA With the *Americans With No Abilities Act (“ANAA”), President Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate are considering sweeping legislation that will provide new benefits for many more Americans.

The Americans With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills or ambition. "Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society," said California Sen. Barbara Boxer.

Is Pope Francis a Communist?

Some conservatives are labeling recent comments from Pope Francis as an indication that the pope is a Communist. I have included a few links with differing points of view.

I lead with Rush Limbaugh: http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2014/06/30/pope_francis_says_communist...

Here is an article from CNBC showing the concern of at least one wealthy Catholic donor. Is this a form of extortion? You be the judge. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/langone-dolan-pope-fundraising/2013/12/...
