Memeorandum, is Strom Thurmond pictured for a particular reason OUTSIDE of the RACE issue, for the basis of Conyers election problems?
Congressman may have filed insufficient number of valid signatures to qualify for ballot … DETROIT – — Veteran U.S. Congressman John Conyers does not have enough signatures to get on the Aug. 5 primary ballot, according to Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett.

“You have to concede a certain logic here: If you can’t defeat Afghanistan, a billion Han Chinese will be a cakewalk.”
Unfettered surveillance of absolutely everything, militarized police, the military as private presidential army, searches without probable or indeed any cause, photo ID required to buy train tickets, on and on.
Perhaps worse, the endless regulation by Washington, either directly or by federal pressure, of everything anybody ever does.

President Barack Obama is like a novice flier thrust into the cockpit of a 747. He’s pushing buttons, flipping switches and radioing air traffic control, but nothing’s happening. The plane is just slowly descending on its own, and while it may or may not crash, it at least doesn’t appear to be headed to any particularly useful destination.
Obama’s ineffectiveness, always a hallmark of his presidency, has reached a new cruising altitude this year. Not even a year into his second term, he looks like a lame duck and quacks like a lame duck. You guessed it — he’s a lame duck.
