Elvis impersonator, was arrested for sending letters laced with ricin to Obama and to Republican Senator Roger Wicker. Inhaling the toxin is deadly, and all it takes to kill a human is an amount 1/288 the size of an aspirin.
A picture of the man, a white guy whom I will henceforth refer to as John, surfaced on the Internet (where pictures are wont to surface). It comes from his Facebook page and shows John kneeling down beside the back bumper of a car, which has a sticker on it that reads, “Christian and a Democrat.” John is giving the sticker a thumbs-up.
However, his Facebook page lists his political views as “Independent.” So the fact that he gave a pro-Democrat bumper sticker a thumbs-up and also tried killing a Democratic president likely means he is one of those people who feel that Obama is too moderate, that the Democratic Party is not suitably liberal, and therefore has registered as an Independent.
Congressman Rangel Slams South Over Guns but Doesn’t Mention Chicago or Detroit
Charles Rangel is a Democrat Congressman from New York. He is not a big believer in the Second Amendment. He’s also prejudice against the South. Speaking on MSNBC Live on January 16, 2013 Rangel said that “‘some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome’ when it comes to gun control.” He went on to say:
“New York is a little different and more progressive in a lot of areas than some other states and some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome.”
What he means by “more progressive” is more liberal. New York is pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, pro-high taxes, pro-government regulations, pro-union, and pro-being-a-busybody telling people what they can eat and drink.
Maybe Rangel was talking about south Chicago:
“Homicides in Chicago spiked by 60 percent during the first three months of the year despite an increase in police resources in some of the city’s most dangerous neighborhoods, according to new police crime statistics. . . .
Say, has anyone mentioned this race looks pretty close lately? Oh, that’s right — everyone has. CNN’s last national poll before Judgment Day shows the race tied at 49, with a D+11 partisan sample. This assumes Democrats will improve upon their extraordinary 2008 turnout by four percentage points. There’s a word for this. It’s “ludicrous.” CNN’s previous national poll gave Obama a three-point lead, so it suggests the GOP nominee is gaining steam. In light of the mind-blowing sample, how is the race even close, let alone tied?
(1) Independent voters are siding with Romney by 22 points, 59/37.
(2) Romney leads by nine on the economy — which is the top issue for voters, followed closely by the deficit, another Romney strong suit.
(3) Romney matches Obama on favorability and leadership qualities.
So there’s that. In case you’re curious, the poll was conducted Friday through Sunday, so any potential Sandy “bump” for Obama should be reflected in the numbers. Perhaps even more astonishing is the GOP’s one-point lead on the poll’s generic Congressional ballot (which may help explain stories like this). Have I mentioned this survey has a D+11 sample?
