truly, these people are something else

KVOA: Those wishing to oust Sheriff Clarence Dupnik are taking action this afternoon. The Pima County Tea Party Patriots have organized a “Dump Dupnik Rally” at the Sheriff’s Office, claiming Dupnik is no longer fit to be sheriff after controversial statements he made surrounding the Tucson shootings.

Meanwhile, Dupnik supporters have also planned a rally at the Sheriff’s Office today. “People tend to poo poo this business about all the vitriol that we hear inflaming the American public by people who make a living off of doing that. That may be free speech, but it’s not without consequences,” Dupnik said during a news conference hours after the shootings at a Tucson Safeway on January 8th.

Tucson resident Mary Cuevas agrees with the Sheriff’s words. “I feel that he was coming straight from the heart and that it needed to be heard and that it was the perfect time actually for him to start this debate,” Cuevas said.

Cuevas says she is planning to come support Sheriff Dupnik peacefully and silently. “When I heard that the Tea Partiers were going to protest against Dupnik, and try to have him resign, I’m just against it,” Cuevas said.

ooops, bad news for the gop (encouraging news for america)

Wall Street Journal: U.S. economic growth accelerated in the final three months of 2010 as Americans spent more, suggesting the recovery may pick up speed this year.

Gross domestic product, the broadest measure of all the goods and services produced, rose at an inflation-adjusted annual rate of 3.2% in the fourth quarter…The increase takes total output to its highest level since the end of 2007, when the recession started.

Consumer spending, accounting for about 70% of demand in the U.S. economy, rose at a 4.4% rate in the fourth quarter. That’s the fastest pace since the start of 2006 and double the average rise in spending in the previous three quarters of 2010.

…For the first time in 2010, the economy also benefited from a trade surplus in October to December……Spending on durable goods like cars and furniture jumped by 21.6%, while spending for nondurable goods like food and clothing was up by 5.0%.

MSNBC: Ford earned its largest profit in more than a decade in 2010, as demand for its cars and trucks rose and it benefited from years of restructuring. It was the company’s best performance since 1999 and the first time it has earned back-to-back annual profits in six years.

Ford earned $6.6 billion, or $1.66 per share. That’s more than double its 2009 profit of $2.7 billion… Ford’s U.S. sales jumped 20 percent last year — double the rate of the industry — as an improving economy spurred demand for the company’s F-Series pickups and other vehicles. Ford became the top-selling brand in the U.S. last year, beating out Chevrolet and Toyota for the first time since 2003.
