STOCKMAN WALKS OUT OF STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) said Tuesday night he left President Obama's State of the Union speech early after "hearing how the President is further abusing his Constitutional powers."

"I could not bear to watch as he continued to cross the clearly-defined boundaries of the Constitutional separation of powers," Stockman said in a press release shortly agter Obama's speech ended

"Needless to say I am deeply disappointed in the tone and content of tonight's address."

State Of Union: It is unacceptable for Obama to put Corporations before the PEOPLE!

While the President had an optimistic tone, again and again, I saw the same theme of giving more power to corporations at the expense of the people. Tell President Obama that he should support policies on food, water and trade that help people and communities, not corporate interests!

Obama’s SOU message: 99% doesn’t have any real problems, they’re just going about it wrong.

Don’t know about you, but that's the message I heard during times in Oblah blah’s State of the Union.

ObamaCare website? Call your Momma and walk her through it,

Mr. President. Do you remember what you did or did you forget?

In Jan. 2009 President Obama signed the Equal Pay Legislation known as the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Why is his DOJ enforcing that law today? And Why is it that woman staff members at the White House not paid the same since he signed that act?

Currency currency

I heard that a crypto-currency vendor had been arrested for "conspiracy to commit money laundering and operating an unlicencsed money transmitting business" and "failing to file a suspicious activity report" for about a $million in transactions for a site whose primary products were of an illegal nature.

The "failure to file" charge itself could add another 5 years to the potential 25 for the first two charges.

In today's grotesquely ugly segment of the show.

I am truly sorry I missed the guys name he was a congressman speaking about a woman. And one of his comments. He suggested that lazy college women could get off their ----- and pay their college debt back by prostitution. Not sure where this character was from but I can testify that in taxes this was practiced. Back in the 70s I had the pleasure of hearing a story about the oldest house of ill repute in America. It was called the chicken ranch they did a musical and a whole lot of other things around.

Farting Cows Make Barn Expolde in Germany

Huffington Post, January 28, 2014

BERLIN (AP) -- A herd of dairy cows nearly lifted the roof off their barn in central Germany when methane released by the animals caused an explosion.

Police in Hesse state said in a statement that static electric charge apparently triggered the detonation, and a spurt of flame, on Monday at a farm in Rasdorf.

The roof was slightly damaged and one cow suffered light burns....No people were hurt.

Police say 90 cows are kept in the shed, and it wasn't clear why quantities of methane had built up.

Who Will Stop World War III?
