However do you keep up with it all, Tom? I'm tired and I don't have your "delightful" neighbor to deal with!
Boogers on the NRA - some people have cement for brains, I guess. And I do hope all the voter suppression garbage just gets MORE people out to vote so that the GOP loses even Bigger.

Thanks for the KondaBulletin, TomCat, really funny. I'd love to see some of those white extremists being frisked by a Sikh.

The GOP of Rhode Island, however, wouldn't get to board a plain ever, because security can't find their brains when they're frisked, or scanned, or whatever. An AR-15-style assault rifle in a raffle? Even without the connection to the Newtown school massacre, it's a no-brainer to not put up an assault rifle as first prize in a raffle. Or any gun, for that matter.

And when everyone is distracted and looking towards Washington, the sneaky vote-stealing just continues. With more examples than we care for, it is safe to conclude that you can never trust anyone who says he can be trusted.

Thanks Tom. The same old trick, if you can't beat them, cheat. The Republican motto I'd guess. Am sure the Bros Koch are somehow behind all this voter purge stuff with the Bagger Governors marching to their orders like the whores they truly are.

Sorry about your neighbor and hope you can drown the bongo drums out with cheering for your Broncos.

The Koch brothers fund ALEC big time and ALEC has lots of voter suppression model bills and recommended executive approaches so plenty of evidence for your view Carlene!

The lunacy never stops. Voter suppression seems to be the rule of the day; whatever they can get away with. Loved the comedy skit, always enjoy Rachel Maddow, and did OK with the puzzle. Thanks so much, TomCat.

lets face it the only rethuglicans win is to gerrymander district's commit fraud by removing people from the voter rolls and any other dirty trick these skunks can think of looks like tricky dick's still roaming around somewhere

Puzzle --- 3:45 Hey Speedy Gonzales, wait for me!

Upworthy --- I am so accustomed to seeing Sikhs and other South-east Asians everywhere here that it is hard to believe, but not impossible, that South-east Asians are singled out and discriminated against so prolifically in the US. Don't get me wrong, Canada has more than enough cases of racism to go around, but really . . .

NY Times --- On Sunday morning, Rhode Island Republicanus/Teabaggers go to church; listen to a sermon on the 6th commandment (Thou shall not kill); then off to the rod and gun club with the kids in tow for the Republicanus/Teabagger party's “2nd Amendment celebration” to have some lunch and pickup some raffle tickets for an AR-15 military assault rifle. The perfect Sunday family day. Now wait for Dick and Jane, playing with Spot and Puff, to "accidently" discharge the damn thing and kill someone. So much for "Thou shall not kill."

MSNBC --- I sure hope that through the lawsuit the purged voters are added back. Just the purge in Fairfax County alone should be enough to tell the courts that this purge is an election fraud tactic orchestrated by the Republicanus/Teabaggers. Add to that the timing and election fraud, in my mind, is a slam dunk! Typical Republicanus/Teabagger teabuggery! Time for a thorough house cleaning --- every room (state) in the castle (country) wiped clean and disinfected of Republicanus/Teabaggers!

Cartoon --- History repeats itself . . . again!
