    Goood Morning!
    IT STINKS IN HERE!!!!!!!! The office is drying out but the smell leaves somthing to be desired! good new and bad new yesterday, the bad news – could go as high as $30,000 in damage and loss! Good news – insurance covers most of it!
    But get this! the flood was caused by a handle blowing off of a sink in the mens room during the night. I got a quote to replace the faucet, $185. Gave the quote to the insurance adjuster and do you know what she said? “Oh we wont cover the repair of the faucet. THAT is what caused the damage. We only cover the damage!!” :shock: :lol:

    Just for those fools, tools who think MSNBC is so great.

    The Morning Joe panel – including Time’s Mark Halperin, New York Magazine’s John Heilemann, and No Labels co-founder Mark McKinnon – discusses the highly controversial new Priorities USA ad hitting Mitt Romney over his time at Bain Capital.

    Morning Joe’s useless cast today: Mark Halperin, John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, Politico, Josh Tyrangiel, Dan Senor, Newt Gingrich, Tony Tjan, Rana Foroohar, Amb. Susan Rice, Paul Mangiamele, Brian Sullivan.

    New Urban Dictionary entry pegs Harry Reid as child molester

    The high-stakes political battle between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has taken a new turn, and it’s as ugly as Jerry Sandusky’s future.

    The Urban Dictionary, an fast-evolving online lexicon that promotes itself as “the dictionary you wrote,” has added a new definition of Reid that seems calculated to respond to the Nevada senator’s recent claims about Romney’s alleged federal income tax evasion.

    “Harry Reid,” the dictionary now says, is defined as “[a]n unofficial rap sheet of alleged pederasty and sexual abuse of minors by anonymous sources that may not exist.”

    High-Ranking Mexican Drug Cartel Member Makes Explosive Allegation: ‘Fast and Furious’ Is Not What You Think It Is

    It wasn’t about tracking guns, it was about supplying them — all part of an elaborate agreement between the U.S. government and Mexico’s powerful Sinaloa Cartel to take down rival cartels.

    – –

    That kind of sounds like Harry Reid . I’d like to see the proof.

    Study: Census data show high immigrant participation on US welfare rolls

    A new study from the Center for Immigration Studies shows that high percentages of legal and illegal immigrants in America are drawing benefits from at least one major form of welfare.

    Using U.S. Census Bureau data from 2010 and 2011, the group analyzed the more than 50 million legal and illegal immigrants and their American-born children under 18 years of age. Large numbers, the limited immigration advocacy group found, are struggling in poverty, reliant on welfare and uninsured.

    The study found that in 2010, 36 percent of immigrant-headed households receive benefits from at least one welfare program, compared to just 23 percent of households headed by U.S. natives. Among households with children, immigrant welfare households outnumbered non-immigrants by a similarly wide margin: 57 percent to 40 percent.

    Welfare enrollment was highest for households headed by immigrants originating in Mexico, with 57 percent participation. Guatemalan immigrants were second, with 55 percent; those from the Dominican Republic were third, with 54 percent participation.

    Immigrants with the lowest rate of welfare participation came to the United States from the United Kingdom, with just 6 percent accessing one or more welfare programs, Germany at 10 percent and Canada with 13 percent, according to the report.

    The authors noted that compared with households headed by U.S. natives, twice as many headed by immigrants who have lived in the United States for more than 20 years access welfare programs.

    Poverty among immigrants and their children, the report added, dwarfs the rate among American natives, by a 23 percent to 13.5 percent margin.

    Arrested illegals who were released charged with 16,226 subsequent crimes

    President Barack Obama‘s decision not to deport some arrested illegal immigrants has enabled a crime wave — but no American or immigrant victims have been publicly identified, and GOP politicians have mostly remained mute.

    Illegal aliens who have been released from custody between 2008 and mid-2011 have been charged with 16,226 subsequent crimes, including 19 murders, 142 sex crimes and thousands of drunk-driving offenses, drug-crimes and felonies, according to a new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.

    “Rather than protect the American people he was elected to serve, President Obama has imposed a policy that allows thousands of illegal immigrants to be released into our communities,” said a statement from Rep. Lamar Smith, the chairman of the House judiciary committee.

    The criminals “were in the government’s custody, were identified as illegal immigrants and then let go because this administration has refused to request the resources to hold them and deport them,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

    Over a 33-month period, from October 2008 and July 2011, roughly one-sixth of those let go were later arrested for crimes.

    Newsweek tries and fails at seducing us with a stock photo

    Newsweek, the struggling weekly magazine that tries to shock readers into buying copy with phallic images and rainbow halos, is at it again. For the Aug. 13 issue, Newsweek lists the 101 best restaurants in the world.

    Firstly, this photo is not creative nor is it necessary. As Slate points out, all Newsweek needed to do was photograph a mouthwatering slab of meat on a plate, or a flaky and creamy piece coconut cream pie, and our country’s food-obsessed readers would certainly line up to buy that.

    Secondly, the photo isn’t even an original. It’s a stock image that was used on the cover of UK’s Observer Food Weekly in April 2008, and two months ago in Russian Harper’s Bazaar, as Eater.com noted.

    Compared with that of each president since 1945, Obama ranks dead last in job creation, losing 316,000 jobs. Presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan hold the top two slots for jobs created during their tenure. During Clinton’s tenure 22.7 million jobs were created and 16.1 million were created under Reagan.

    160 U.S. Counties Have More Registered To Vote Than Actual Live, Eligible Voters!

    It’s okay, despite the arrests and convictions, Eric Holder is correct. There is no voting fraud and the dead and illegal don’t vote Democrat 100% of the time.

    A nonpartisan election integrity group has sent legal notices to 160 counties across the U.S. that it says have more voters on its registration rolls than actual live, eligible voters — and thus represent potential hotbeds for election fraud, the organization told TheBlaze exclusively.

    The Houston-based True the Vote said the counties may be in violation of Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act, which mandates that election officials maintain clean voter rolls by removing people who have died, moved away or are no longer eligible to vote. True the Vote is demanding each of the counties show proof of compliance or they’ll bring civil suit.

    It was also convenient that some of these undercover recording disappeared during Blago’s trial.

    The Doomsday Device Tax
    New Mexico Dem Senate candidate Martin Heinrich misleads with defense of medical device tax

    Democratic New Mexico congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Martin Heinrich defended his vote to uphold a job-killing provision of Obamacare on Tuesday, despite his previous acknowledgment that the provision would have negative economic consequences for his home state.

    Heinrich defended his vote during an interview with a local reporter by claiming to have opposed a 4.6 percent tax on medical devices but to have supported a 2.3 percent tax, which he deemed “reasonable.”

    However, the final House and Senate versions of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, did not have a medical device tax of 4.6 percent.

    “He said he helped cut the tax from 4.6 to 2.3 percent. That wasn’t true, and we caught him on that,” Heather Wilson, former Republican New Mexico congresswoman and Senate opponent, told the Free Beacon.

    At issue is a February 2010 letter signed by Heinrich which suggested that any tax higher than a “zero rate” would impact middle-class New Mexican families. “I am particularly concerned about the impact this tax would have on a facility in my district that manufactures surgical equipment,” Heinrich wrote in the letter to then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    Yet Heinrich voted June 7 of this year to uphold the 2.3 percent excise tax on medical device manufacturers that will take effect next year under Obamacare. The GOP-controlled House voted 270-146 to repeal the tax, with Heinrich and all but 37 Democrats in the minority.

    Gibbs Filibusters on Misleading Super PAC Ad

    Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs refused to condemn a campaign ad released by the Obama-affiliated Priorities USA, which suggests Mitt Romney was responsible for a woman’s death from cancer.

    “This is an ad by an entity that’s not controlled by the campaign,” Gibbs said in a “Morning Joe” interview. “I certainly don’t know the specifics of this man’s case.”

    Gibbs joins Obama campaign spokesperson Jennifer Psaki and deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter in declining to condemn the ad.
