    A great read from a renowned constitutional lawyer, Laurence Tribe, and why the doofus Boehner’s lawsuit is a non-starter.

    It is pathetic that John Boehners lawsuit exists Solelyin order to provide deranged loser racists with something to be happy about.
    The GOP/MSM have surely hit rock-bottom with this move.

      A little while ago sports dude on MSNBC said LeBron’s return will mean between $200mil to 500mil boost to Cleveland’s economy! Jobs, business, the works. Whoa! All that due to one basketball player. Amazing.

        It’s a more acceptable form of “Black Power”!

        Immediate impact is the franchise is worth 100 million more. Also they sold out all their season tickets in 8 hrs yesterday, and the 200 million is a little on the high side, but feasible. The Cleveland Indians baseball stadium is a few blocks walk from the Q where the Cavs play….most of the economic impact will be felt downtown due to more patrons…..i.e more jobs etc.

    As if you needed another reason to hate WALMART. Really FLORIDA??

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/07/12/4232296/walmart-planned-for-endangered.html

    One of the world’s rarest forests, a section of Miami-Dade County’s last intact tracts of endangered pine rockland, is getting a new resident: a Walmart.

    About 88 acres of rockland, a globally imperiled habitat containing a menagerie of plants, animals and insects found no place else, was sold this month by the University of Miami to a Palm Beach County developer. To secure permission for the 185,000-square-foot box store, plus an LA Fitness, a Chik-fil-A, a Chili’s and about 900 apartments, the university and the developer, Ram, agreed to set aside 40 acres for a preserve. Ram also plans to develop another 35 adjacent acres still owned by the school.

    But with less than 2 percent of the vast savanna that once covered South Florida’s spiny ridge remaining, the deal has left environmentalists and biologists scratching their heads.

    “You wonder how things end up being endangered? This is how. This is bad policy and bad enforcement. And shame on UM,” said attorney Dennis Olle, a board member of Tropical Audubon and the North American Butterfly Association, who wrote Florida’s lead federal wildlife agent Friday demanding an investigation.

    The university said in a statement it is committed to protecting the forests — only about 2,900 acres of rockland are left outside Everglades National Park — and helped execute plans for the preserve, but would not respond to questions.

    A Chik-fil-A, too? Oh good. A twofer.

    The Children of the Drug Wars
    A Refugee Crisis, Not an Immigration Crisis

    CRISTIAN OMAR REYES, an 11-year-old sixth grader in the neighborhood of Nueva Suyapa, on the outskirts of Tegucigalpa, tells me he has to get out of Honduras soon — “no matter what.”

    In March, his father was robbed and murdered by gangs while working as a security guard protecting a pastry truck. His mother used the life insurance payout to hire a smuggler to take her to Florida. She promised to send for him quickly, but she has not.

    Three people he knows were murdered this year. Four others were gunned down on a nearby corner in the span of two weeks at the beginning of this year. A girl his age resisted being robbed of $5. She was clubbed over the head and dragged off by two men who cut a hole in her throat, stuffed her panties in it, and left her body in a ravine across the street from Cristian’s house.

    “I’m going this year,” he tells me.

    Someone here just couldn’t believe these children were coming to America all by themselves. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT CHILDREN HAVE TO ENDURE THIS??? People have lost their everloving minds. These are children that are supposed to depend on adults to keep them safe and give them the childhood they all deserve. I just shake my head in disbelief. We need to do better.

      God help us if we can’t take these children in until their country gets a hold of it’s problems. If anyone hears this story or any like it and say, “send them back” needs to rot in HELL because you don’t have a heart.

    U.S. Seen as Biggest Oil Producer After Overtaking Saudi Arabia
    The U.S. will remain the world’s biggest oil producer this year after overtaking Saudi Arabia and Russia as extraction of energy from shale rock spurs the nation’s economic recovery, Bank of America Corp. said.

    U.S. production of crude oil, along with liquids separated from natural gas, surpassed all other countries this year with daily output exceeding 11 million barrels in the first quarter, the bank said in a report today. The country became the world’s largest natural gas producer in 2010. The International Energy Agency said in June that the U.S. was the biggest producer of oil and natural gas liquids.

    I’m watching ‘Rhapsody in Blue’. Interesting to see a 1945 movie that does showcase black performers.
