What do you guys think? Are sporks unnatural abominations or are you a he-devil like Dan Joseph?
Also, I believe this week we captured the first candy machine assisted kill in VIDEO GAME HISTORY!
All that plus the National Rocket Launchers Association, Call of Duty Ghosts’ new gun game mode, the CBO’s report on how awful Obamacare is, and the sad Superbowl on this week’s episode of Games & Guns! Enjoy!
Well, it’s about time: Van Jones, President Obama’s ‘Green Jobs’ adviser, has resigned his position. Recently, some controversial comments, including calling Republicans “assholes”, made by Jones have resurfaced, leaving him to be a sitting duck in the Obama Administration. A video of Jones has surfaced on the Internet where he suggests black students would never do anything like the Columbine Massacres.
In the video, from December 2005, Jones makes statements about the racial differences in school violence. “You’ve never seen a Columbine done by a black child. Never,” he said. “They always say, ‘We can’t believe it happened here. We can’t believe it was these suburban white kids.’ It’s only them. Now a black kid might shoot another black kid. He’s not going to shoot up the whole school.” Continue reading “All The President’s Czars”
After a month long Congressional recess, the health care debate is returning to Washington D.C. With President Obama’s poll numbers slipping, along with the support for the Democrats’ health car proposal, health care reform is at a major crossroads. That is why Obama has been focusing a lot of energy into his top domestic priority, including addressing a joint session of Congress, the first since after 9/11.
Thus far in the reform process, Democrats have almost exclusively worked with other Democrats, ignoring the public’s call for bipartisanship on the issue. Liberal Democrats have refused to part with the so-called “public option”, while Republicans have entirely opposed such an option. Fiscally conservative Democrats, called Blue Dogs, have show some resistance to that detail, but it is unclear which way they would vote on a bill with it. While Congress agrees health care reform is needed, neither side seems willing to compromise anything. Continue reading “What’s Next for Health Care?”
According to the Associated Press:
The Illinois House could vote as early as next week on whether to impeach Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
The Illinois House has bumped up its schedule and will meet several days next week. They had been set to reconvene on Jan. 12.
This comes as a little bit of a shock to me. After they showed no political back bone a couple weeks back I figured they would never actually vote to impeach Blagojevich. Maybe the Burris appointment and the circus that followed it has made them think twice?
But I still doubt this will come to anything execpt maybe another tent in the circus. You see, while it only takes a majority of the house to impeach it takes two thirds of the Senate to convict. Thats a pretty big feet for a state congress that couldn’t (or wouldn’t) even pass a bill taking the appointment power out of Blagojevich’s hands.
We shall see what happens…
