Senate Allows 3 Provisions Within The Patriot Act To Expire
After a rare Sunday Senate session, three provisions within the Patriot Act expired at midnight — including a program that allowed the government to collect the phone records of millions of Americans.

I think we'll survive without the PATRIOT Act as long as we don't do anything dumb like elect another Bush.- LOLGOP

We can't get Bush's bad ideas to go away. We can't even get his brother to go away.- LOLGOP

Dick Cheney's Iraq Thoughts Before Working For Halliburton

Americans, we talk a big game about “we’re the greatest country in the world,”
I mean, come on. We drink wine out of a box.  We invented Mormonism.  
Our best-selling author is Bill O’Reilly.  Most Americans don’t know that the “Big Bang Theory”…is also a theory. - Bill Maher

Republican Shenanigans

Remember when Gingrich had to resign as speaker & they brought in Hastert, because he was thought to be much more likable? - John Fugelsang

I Love All Three Democratic Candidates. They Are Smart.
For months, Martin O'Malley has mulled how to compete with front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton in the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

Now that he's officially a candidate, he also has to worry about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black:
1. He called everyone brother.
2. He liked Gospel.
3. He didn't get a fair trial.
But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish:
1. He went into His Father's business.
2. He lived at home until he was 33.
3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his Mother was sure He was God.
But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian:
1. He talked with His hands.
2. He had wine with His meals.
3. He used olive oil.
But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was a Californian:
1. He never cut His hair.
2. He walked around barefoot all the time.
3. He started a new religion.
But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was an American Indian:
1. He was at peace with nature.
2. He ate a lot of fish.
3. He talked about the Great Spirit.
But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish:
1. He never got married.
2. He was always telling stories.
3. He loved green pastures.
But the most compelling evidence of all - 3 proofs that Jesus was a woman:
1. He fed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was virtually no food.
2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't get it.
3. And even when He was dead; He had to get up because there was still work to do.

Disaster Movie Trailer "San Andreas"
The snickering could be heard as soon as the first teaser for the movie "San Andreas" was posted online.
Key plot points defy the laws of physics. An earthquake that opens up a canyon? Impossible. A San Andreas-triggered tsunami clobbering San Francisco? Please. A magnitude 9 earthquake in California?
Ha ha ha, say the earthquake experts.

Why would I pay to see a disaster movie? I still remember the Bush administration vividly.- Kona Lowell
