Breakfast Scramble (Thursday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Alvin Greene for President, if we run him, the blacks will vote for him.  from Meredeth Shiner, Poltico: [1]

“I’m the next president,” Greene said. “I’ll be 35 … just before November, so I was born to be president. I’m the man. I’m the man. I’m the man. Greene’s the man. I’m the man. I’m the greatest person ever. I was born to be president. I’m the man, I’m the greatest individual ever.”

Greene has the same one qualification for President as does Barack Obama, an ego completely out of proportion to his abilities,, limited as they are, and he be blacker than Dim Won.    If we can get Greene’s name on the ballot in all fifty states, blacks will support him.

[2]Charlie Rangel for jail, or Micheal Godwin spitting into the political wind, from the New York Post [3]:

It’s official: Charlie Rangel is a crook. A liar. And a tax cheat.

The guilty finding by a bipartisan group of his peers lays to rest any illusion the flimflam man’s disgraceful conduct was an aberration or mere sloppiness. The case revealed a decades-long pattern of willful deceit and intentional evasion.

In a better world, we would be bidding him good riddance. He would be expelled from Congress, and a federal prosecutor would be waiting at the door, ready to pounce on the ton of evidence that convicted him. A grand jury would be going through the bank accounts bulging with cash, the sources of which remain suspiciously unclear

Nothing new here, Rangel been a crook for years.    Given the  Voting Rights Art of 1965 and the Supreme Court’s interpertation thereof, we stuck with majority minority districts until some Congress and President muster the courage to amend.

Majority Minority disstricts have given us a long line of undistinguished  congresscritters for life, the collective brillance of government light bulb.   Till the repeal of VRCA(1965)  there virtually nothng to stop areas like Harlem from electing crooks and liars like Rangel, or predecessor Adam Clayton Powell,  as c congresscritters for life.   What I can ask, but alas not expect, is Congress to reform the corrupt senority system which rewards congresscritters with unmerited and unearned  political power simply by virtue of getting re-elected.

So if Harlem want Rangel as their congresscritter, sobeit.  However I ask that Rangel not be allowed to use his seniority to write out nation’s tax laws    It not too much to ask that the person who write the tax code should also obey them.

[4]‘Rats for Purgatory,  Speaker Tablecloth elected to lead demorates into the wildness for forty years,  from Carl Hulse, NewYork Slimes [5]:

The House speaker, Nancy Pelosi [6] of California, was re-elected on Wednesday to lead the Democrats in the next Congress, despite her party’s loss of more than 60 seats and its majority control of the House in the midterm elections.

Officials said that Ms. Pelosi defeated Representative Heath Shuler of North Carolina in an internal party vote, 150 to 43. Mr. Shuler acknowledged before the vote that he had no chance to win, but he wanted to give disgruntled Democrats a chance to register their opposition to Ms. Pelosi’s leadership just the same.

Arrest the TSA perverts, what do you call a person who pulls down the pants of another man to fondle his private parts in public?  The same thing I do.  Judge Andrew Napolitano appears to suggestingb that these perverts are subject to arrest by local officialsl, video:

Hat tip video: Johnny Dollar [7].

More, by Lyanne Melendez, KGO-TV/DT [8]:

SAN MATEO COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) — The San Mateo district attorney’s office has a warning for all TSA personnel at SFO — anyone inappropriately touching a passenger during a security pat down will be prosecuted.

Incoming San Mateo DA Steve Wagstaffe says any complaints of inappropriate touching during an airport security pat down will land on his desk.

“The case would be reviewed and if we could prove the elements of it, that it was inappropriately done with a sexual or lewd intent, that person would be prosecuted,” he said.

The charge — sexual battery.

Bravo.
