Booker: Responding to Shootings With Thoughts and Prayers Is ‘Bulls***’

"So when I'm president of the United States, I'm taking a fight to this issue like folks will have never seen before, because we're better than this as a country," Booker said. "It's a uniquely American problem. No other country has this kind of carnage. More people in my lifetime have died in this nation due to gun violence than in all the wars from the Revolutionary War to now."

"We're not going to give thoughts and prayers, which to me is just bulls**t," he added. "I'm sorry to say that as a man of faith, but I was taught that faith without works is dead. We're going to bring a fight with everything that I have to solve this problem. Because it's solvable, and we know it."

...

Cory Booker says thoughts and prayers are "bulls***"

The Democratic Party has gone from mocking us for "clinging to guns or religion" to saying we will take your guns and your religion is "BS." Beyond offensive.

Rudy's fact finding trip to the Ukraine reminds me of Trump's actions in 2011.

In April of 2011 Trump explained to the media that he is sending his own investigators to Hawaii to uncover the truth behind Obama's birth circumstances. Shortly after his announcement Barack announced that he sent lawyers to retrieve his birth certificate and then posted the online image of the purported identification.

The next day, Obama roasted Trump at the WH dinner, and the day after that Obama killed Bin Laden and managed to scrub the fake birth certificate story from the front pages.

Trump forced Obama's hand and won. Obama's response was petty. Obama's handlers knew from the moment Trump got involved as a Birther, there were never going to be able to hide all the garbage.

Now Rudy is embarking on a similar crusade. This is driving them nuts.

Election Law Expert: ‘No Good Evidence’ Voter Laws Changed Outcomes in Georgia, Florida

An election law expert said Democrats should stop claiming the Georgia and Florida governor's races in 2018 were "stolen" by Republicans, saying there is no evidence to support such a notion.

Richard Hasen, a law professor at the University of California-Irvine, told PolitiFact that Democrats Stacey Abrams (Ga.) and Andrew Gillum (Fla.) and their allies didn't have proof to substantiate their frequent complaints.

"I have seen no good evidence that the suppressive effects of strict voting and registration laws affected the outcome of the governor's races in Georgia and Florida," he said. "It would be one thing to claim, as some have, that these laws are aimed to suppress the vote and likely suppressed some votes. It is quite another to claim that there is good proof they affected the outcome."

PolitiFact looked into the cases after 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) told the NAACP: "Let's say this loud and clear. Without voter suppression, Stacey Abrams would be the governor of Georgia, Andrew Gillum is the governor of Florida."

The fact-checking site elected not to rate Harris's claim on its Truth-O-Meter, stating, "It isn't possible to prove if any election law or policy in either state cost the Democrats their elections." However, it reviewed the evidence and found Harris's claim to be dubious.

When John found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed a woman to enjoy it with. So one evening he went to a singles bar where he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.

Her natural beauty took his breath away. “I may look like just an ordinary man,” he said as he walked up to her, “but in just a week or two my father will die, and I will inherit 20 million dollars.”

Impressed, the woman went home with him that evening.

Three days later, she became his stepmother.

I am with henry. Get yourself to an urgent care clinic or ER!

Jane, I take a couple Benadryl and wait half an hour. (Unless yellow jacket sting, those I pop Benadryl, zip the epi, and dial immediately). If my pulse or bp is elevated at that point I go straight to epicenter and dial 911. Total pita. But by the time the paramedics get here (5 min) they can detect airways closing. So I don’t play around much.

Not much downside to going to an urgent care.

The Mueller SC has been completed for several weeks now with everything turned over to Barr in late March. I would like to hear DiGenova explain how/why Barr allowed Mueller/Weissmann to hide this info from Horowitz for so long. I would also like to hear him explain how Horowitz eventually acquired the new information in early May.

in Florida, it is a gamble every time you walk outside barefooted, even around the pool.

The best way to kill the fire ants, usually in the gaps between the Belgian blocks in a driveway or walkway, is to use seltzer water. Just pour down their little sand volcano. If in a yard, look for their mounds, then pour the seltzer down.

Do you have snakes on your property, Jane?

What exactly do Nadler and the Democrats need to negotiate? Trump has said Barr can decide on whether Mueller will testify. Barr has said Mueller is free to testify. What are the Democrats scared of?
