And on top of all that Ext apparently Holly Paz never was fired like we were told.

Just another lie shot out there to shut us complainers up about no one ever suffering any consequences.

On FOX and Friends at 06:00 AM east coast time, Megyn Kelly is up early talking about Holly Paz! Confirms Paz was not fired, and is on "Administrative Leave."

I can't remember when I saw more three-four footers veer away from or around the hole at the last minute.

Saturday morning, Silvermere GC, Surrey, England, Kevin B putting.

Our greenkeeper picks some nasty pin positions on Major weekends.

And congrats Justin Rose. I feel a real affinity for him since he played a local course, North Hants, when he was a kid learning the game.

Ah, that was the site, that reported the antics of Ambassador McGuirk, to whom I've obliquely referred, along with other details, like that former local reporter who now ended up in the Foreign Service, (her talents are not unlikely that of Ms. Mills)

The owner of the blog, I caution, is generally skeptical of American intervention in Iraq.

Good Morning! An update on the eighth graders at South Bristol...they launched their hand made skiffs on Friday. A ceremony was held,but
without the traditional blessing because of the recent controversy.But,
a member of the gathered community let out a loud sneeze and the group shouted "God Bless You!"

Jack,were you able to watch the puffin cam? There is a note on the screen this morning alerting that the egg will hatch in 10-15 days.

Right, they've only been on this bandwagon for nearly 20 years, with the Joyce/Sara Diamond grants, the Holder admissions, down
the memory hole, etc.

And that purported Rubio aide quote in Politico, is 'fake but accurate'

Althouse, has that Gellman, (well he is less useful then Regis's flunky) piece that doesn't actually link to what he purports to show.

"Late Breaking News!

"President Barack Obama’s approval rating dropped 8 percentage points over the last month, and for the first time in his presidency more than half of the public doesn’t feel that the president is honest and trustworthy, a new CNN/ORC International poll shows. (CNN)

"The poll was conducted as the White House has been under siege over telephone and Internet surveillance, the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups, its handling of the terror attack on the U.S. consular post in Benghazi, Libya, and the Justice Department’s collecting journalists’ phone records as part of the government’s investigation into leaks of classified information.

They are very verklempt at CNN about it,

A final few words on the Open: I was very impressed with the top 3 finishers. Rose was a very gracious winner who played very smart golf which was almost error free. It's hard not to sympathize with Phil but his putter let him down badly yesterday; the only reason he was still in contention was chipping in the eagle. He had plenty of chances on the greens and squandered every one of them. Unless something strange happens in the next couple years he will probably be regarded with Sam Snead as the best golfers never to win the Open. Jason Day looked impressive until he faded a bit down the stretch. Also kudos to Jason Duffner and Ernie Els for shooting 67 and 69 to make last day charges enough to finish tied for fourth.

The big winner was Merion. The USGA has to be ecstatic with how it humbled everybody.

Threadkiller

There is one thing Obama is honest and trustworthy about.

Extraneus

Who's starting it now?

Extraneus

Btw, I haven't ever seen anyone here make that claim, TK.

Threadkiller

No one here has made the claim that Obama is being honest on one particular subject.

Finally, O' Mara and GZ win one.

State cannot use "profiling" in opening statement.

Cecil Turner

I suspect most of us read it regularly anyway, but Instapundit is en fuego this morning (pithy commentary about backdoor legislation, Rubio's missteps, overdue amendments, and government overreach).

Danube on iPad

"No one here has made the claim that Obama is being honest on one particular subject."

I claim that Obama is being honest on the following particular subjects:

1. His mother was white.
2. His father was black.
3. He wants to spread the wealth around.
4. He was president of the Harvard Law Review.
5. He was born in Hawaii.

All of these facts can be readily verified.

Threadkiller

This is what happens when the establishment puts an anchor baby in charge of citizenship paths that require more work than the one he coasted in on.

Threadkiller

I was talking about his attendance to Columbia.

You have startled me with the subject matter you have brought up.

I will resist your bait for the sake of Clarice and Alice.

narciso

So the Politico piece, that Insty references comes from the New Yorker's Lizza, who's been solid on balance, not like Heineman and Halperin,

...the establishment puts an anchor baby in charge of citizenship paths

You have a very, very strange obsession.

Inside the poll numbers, more encouraging news:

“The drop in Obama’s support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition,” CNN polling director Keating Holland said. He also notes that the president’s approval rating among independent voters had plunged, too, dropping ten points in just one month to 37 percent."

I finally start broaching media education and the assumption, financed by tech and media companies, that print is dead and we need new kinds of minds. Same refrain different excuse and tool.

Diva haircut time! Mom the chauffeur and financier.

I recall being under 30 and being freaked out about domestic spying and government lying.

I suppose it's expecting too much for them to reflect on how easily they were manipulated by the JEF.

Contrary to what the Red Witch's husband says, I don't think Barry cares about polls at this point. He probably cared a little bit in 2012, but his main interest ramming through whatever socialist redistributive command and control carp he can, regardless of what the public thinks. It's worked so far, and he knows as long as he's in office he can pretty much prevent the Republicans from undoing any of it, which means it's likely in forever.

"his main interest *is* ramming through..."

With friends like this:

SHANGHAI – Director Oliver Stone brought thunderous applause to a crowd of more than 500 festival-goers at the 16th Shanghai International Film Festival in China on Monday when he praised whistleblower Edward Snowden as a "hero."

He doesn't but his fellow commiecrats can't be happy with the Faustian bargain they made with him.

Lucianne banner:

The Supreme Court on Monday tossed out an Arizona provision in its voter registration law that required proof of citizenship. The 7-2 majority said the state's voter-approved Proposition 200 interfered with federal law designed to make voter registration easier. (CNN)

The state called it a "sensible precaution" to prevent voter fraud. Civil rights groups countered it added an unconstitutional and burdensome layer of paperwork for tens of thousands of citizens.

Dave (in MA)

Let's try it again...

"Gianno" near the bottom of this page has some interesting figures about Anti-Biz Markey.

This will be the 3rd time I've tried to post the same info.

Remind me why the Republican establishment is so smart and clever and we should defer to their good judgment?

‘There are American workers who, for lack of a better term, can’t cut it,’ a Rubio aide told me. ‘There shouldn’t be a presumption that every American worker is a star performer. There are people who just can’t get it, can’t do it, don’t want to do it. And so you can’t obviously discuss that publicly.’

http://www.politico.com/playbook/0613/playbook10932.html

Off the top of my head, I can think of several hundred American workers who just can't get it, can't do it, don't want to do it, and, unfortunately, we're paying their salaries and we can't fire them.

Captain Hate

The state called it a "sensible precaution" to prevent voter fraud.

They should do it anyway or at least until the NLRB is disbanded. Why should only one side be bound by court rulings?

Great Link, Dave(in MA)

I hope every American reads the comments by
Gianno and everyone in MA votes against Markey.

Clarice

I don't think Obama cares much about thepoll numbers, but he ought to. If that's a harbinger of 2014, a Republican House and Senate can do a lot to stem the tide, and impeachment might not be so distant a possibility.

I am distressed by the riht wing claim that Roberts was blackmailed by the Administration. I recall reading a sensible and credible souding rebuttal to that the other day but can't recall where. Does anyone here?

Dave (in MA)

Pagar, I have every confidence that the idiots in this state are going to put Markey in the Lurch Seat.

jimmyk

They should do it anyway or at least until the NLRB is disbanded.

Seems like they may be able to. Only Thomas and Alito dissented, but Scalia wrote:

"Arizona can ask the federal government to include the extra documents as a state-specific requirement, Scalia said, and take any decision made by the government on that request back to court."

Not sure I get the logic of that--they can't do it themselves, but they can ask the feds to include it? And what if the feds say no?

Happy Days are here again.
Medicare has sent me a check for $1.22
The banks here are required by law to collect and turn over to the government $5.35 per check cashed.

Clarice

Sounds like a preemption question. (I haven't read the opinion--just this note). Scalia is saying the federal govt under the law has the right to first pass on the issue and if and when it denies AZ's request, the state can contest that ruling in court.

I once got one for 22 cents and deposited at my local Bank of America:). They must of growled when they saw it.

It has become madness that WE are expected to obey laws but citizens of other countries & our federal government don't have to.

Ignatz

I have had a Fidelity Account with 13 cents in it for about fifteen years.
Somehow that was left in it when I tried to close it and after several failed attempts to get them to close it out completely, figured it wasn't worth the effort on my part if it wasn't on theirs.
Every year I get my annual statement updating me on my nest egg.

Clarice

Well, I understand your frustrations, but the rulings that the NLRB was unlawfully constituted are applicable only in those states covered by the Districts or Appellate Cts where they were rendered. SCOTUS decisions are of national application.

Clarice

Of course, unless the Voter Motor Act is revised or repealed, today's decision should make the Immigration Bill even more unworthy of passage.
