We should all be so proud. Seriously? A selfie at a funeral? That goes for you too, Mr. Cameron.

This is another thing that just sits in my craw. All this hullabaloo about stores opening on Thanksgiving. For the record, I have zero intention of going to the stores this weekend, let alone on Thanksgiving day. But I don’t make a big deal over the ones that do. I have a friend who lives in Texas and I remember last year on Thanksgiving she was posting pictures of her and her kids standing in line to get into the stores. She labeled a few of them as creating memories. She was doing this not so much to get a big bargain, but for her kids to remember those moments spent with mom and dad on Thanksgiving. Again, I wouldn’t do it. But who am I to tell her she can’t or that she is somehow a bad person because she chooses to?
Another thing that really gets me is the total lack of concern for those that work at restaurants that happen to be open on Thanksgiving. There are plenty of people who can’t be bothered to cook a large meal and go out for dinner. Do you think that the dishwashers in that restaurant are getting big tips? Not likely. They too are away from their families. So are the chefs/cooks. What about the cater waiters who go to people homes to help serve meals? Yes that does happen. Do you think that those people don’t have families like the poor abused Wal-Mart worker?
Look, I have long ago thought that the holiday season has become so commercialized that “the reason for the season” has gotten lost. That is the society we live in. That is the society that we have chosen for ourselves. This isn’t be pushed upon us by Wal-Mart. I remember when I was a kid I was in the family station wagon driving to our destination on Thanksgiving morning and my parents being worried about having enough gas to get back home. There were no open gas stations back then. There were no open grocery stores for those items that you didn’t remember to buy on your trip for your family meal. You had to make due. But today virtually every major grocery store chain is open for at least part of the day. Oh yeah, they are primarily unionized so the cries for them aren’t quite as loud.
Yes, Thanksgiving should be about family. But the fact is that people have been working on holidays for generations now. Do you think those football stadiums aren’t staffed? I have a Christmastime birthday and I am a long-suffering life-long Knicks fan. I was trying to decide what to do for my birthday this year and was thinking about going to a Knicks game since I am now back in the New York area. They are playing on Christmas Day. Do you have any idea how badly I want to go to that game? I found about it far too late and it is all sold out and I am way too cheap to pay the exorbitant prices that tickets are going for at this stage, but let me tell you, I would love to be sitting in the stands on that day. Does that make me a bad person? How exactly is that different from Wal-Mart being open? People will be working won’t they?
People decide for themselves what is family tradition and how that time is spent with said family. There are people who have very tight budgets for Christmas gifts and the deals that are sometimes available during these big events are more than they can resist. I have another friend who when her children were young, didn’t have a great deal of money and her daughter wanted a doll. That doll was on sale for three hours on the middle of the night. She got her butt out of bed and went and got it. Why? Because she couldn’t have afforded it otherwise and that was the one thing her little girl really wanted. That was important to her. You may view it a different way, but for her and her daughter it was something special.
This is yet one more example of people trying to use something for a political goal. This isn’t about people missing time with their families. This is about unionizing Wal-Mart. If this were simply about people working during “family time” they would be complaining about all the other businesses that will be open on Thanksgiving Day. When you start worrying about the servers, the dishwashers, the unionized grocery store workers, then we will talk.
Yes, they are this hypocritical. Apparently when they thought the ads were “fake” and done by some republican group, they were no good. Once they found out they were actual ads they are not only fine with them, they are praising the idea of “discussing birth control”.
There is no way to describe these ads as anything other than demeaning to young adults in this country. All they care about are keg parties, sex without consequences or emotion, and birth control. That is what this administration thinks of you. It isn’t me saying it, it is what they think. You are only worried about partying, having fun, and sleeping around. I guess that is why so little has been done to address the very serious issue of jobs for recent college grads and young people. Who needs those things when they get “free” birth control and do headstands with keg stands?
Heaven help this country. A real life ad about Obamacare.
Aren’t these pretty? Forever Stamps, Not so fast. They are going to be destroyed, yep the entire run. Why you ask? Well it should be obvious and an outrage to you. After all, take a look at the skateboarder. Where are the knee pads? The wrist braces? No helmet? How can that be? It is dangerous. Dangerous I say. It cannot stand. A cannonball? How can that be allowed? Apparently nowadays you need a helmet to do a head stand. No helmet you might get hurt. Oh no. We can’t let that happen now can we?
Seriously, I didn’t ride a bike with a helmet when I was little. I loved, and I mean loved, gymnastics. To this day, even at my old age, I am one of the most flexible people I know. I can put both my feet behind my head. I don’t wear any protective gear. So far I have never injured myself so badly that I needed medical attention. We skateboarded without helmets and knee pads. We survived. It wasn’t the end of the world. We even had cars without (gasp) airbags and child safety seats. How did we survive? IT’S A MIRACLE!!!! We should all be dead by today’s standards.
Honestly, an entire run of stamps will be destroyed because someone on the Presidential Council has decided this may give kids the wrong impression about being active. Huh? Do kids even use stamps anymore? What is it exactly that they are mailing out? I mean would you have noticed the lack of knee pads had I not pointed it out?
Well at least the post office is not running in the red. Oh wait!!!

Oh my the outrage. The CEO of Barilla pasta said this:
“If (gay people) like our pasta and our communication, they can eat it. If they do not like it, if they do not like what we say, they can eat a different one.”
Due to this people are calling for a world-wide boycott. No where did this man say that gay people are bad. He said that in their advertising they use traditional families. Now I worked in the fundraising/marketing field for more than a decade. While much of what I did was for politicians, the idea behind is pretty much the same. You speak to your audience. You speak to the people who are the most likely to buy your product. Companies spend millions upon millions doing market research. They know who their main customer base is. If the majority of people they are selling to are soccer moms, that is who they are going to go after in the large sums of money they spend on advertising.
I remember once looking over the marketing plan for Joan and David shoes. See I have a real weakness for shoes and Joan and David are some of my favorites. They aren’t overly expensive yet they are good quality and have the style that I prefer. The listing that they had as their main customer base fit me to a tee, right down to the Volvo. Yes they knew the type of car many of their shoppers prefer.
But no, this isn’t good enough for the gay agenda activists. This was a gotcha question, not unlike what was done to Chick-Fil-A. Of course asking a Christian conservative about gay marriage was going to come out the way it did. Christian conservatives don’t believe in gay marriage. That shouldn’t be a surprise. The real question is does Barilla discriminate in their hiring practices? The answer is likely the same as it is at Chick-Fil-A, no.
The idea of tolerance is supposed to mean that all accept others belief systems. Of course that doesn’t happen with the gay agenda. You must agree or you are a bigot, a homophobe, a hater. Not only do you have to agree, you have to advertise a certain way. You must use gay couples in your tv and magazine advertising, or you are a hater that doesn’t deserve to stay in business. Lets see gay people make up less than 10% of society worldwide. The vast majority of people around the world aren’t gay. Of course companies are going to go after the main customer base. Their job is make a profit, not to handhold a small segment of society to prove how open-minded and tolerant they are.
What I find so funny about all this is that all the people who are outraged, most of which are heterosexuals, never bother to look into why the question was asked? Could it be to further an agenda? No, that couldn’t be it. Stop being sheeple and following along simply because someone with one is asking you to. How many of these people who are so outraged even realized until a few days ago that gay couples weren’t being used in their commercials? Did you even think about it? Did you actually care? Did you actually hear what the man said as opposed to the headlines?
Barilla Pasta hates gays!!! Barilla Pasta said they don’t want gay people to eat their pasta!!!!!
No such thing was said. But for the sheeple that matters none. Just follow along and close your eyes to the fact that you are being manipulated. It is easy, as long as you don’t use your brain and research for yourself.
Anyone that’s familiar with the Bible, anything like that…When Jesus said that you’re going straight to Hell if you didn’t treat the lesser of his brothers and sisters…and what did he say? He said he was hungry, that you didn’t give him food stamps, he was thirsty, that you didn’t purify the water, that he was naked, and you didn’t give him Social Security
Can you imagine if 60 million Catholics became missionaries just for the poor, the sick and the uninsured?
Well if 60 million Catholics went out and became missionaries we wouldn’t need food stamps and welfare. I am actually all for that, so in this case I sort of agree with him. People should be doing these things. I do as much as I can. Do you?
I leave the hypocrisy of him taking rent controlled apartments for his office space out of this. Too bad Ed Schultz didn’t bring that up during their talk; liberal logic as I guess.

Like listening to all the talk about Miley hasn’t been painful enough, now this:
Every time I see @MileyCyrus slap that black woman’s butt, I think about the way that enslaved blacks were whipped for white entertainment.
Oh, please. The young woman obviously had a bad performance last night, I don’t know as I didn’t see it. Nor do I care to. But to call her racist is simply crossing the line.
Get a life lady. Would the performance been better had the butt slap happened to a white woman? From what I have seen, the answer is no.
I have been very busy of late. Over the weekend I was painting, or to be honest I was watching more than helping. But I did some of the work. While I was doing this I decided I wanted a beer, an unusual event for me. I walked to the store to buy myself a Corona. I had put on one of many Romney T-shirts to do the painting in. I didn’t change my clothes before I walked to the package store.
As I am walking and minding my own business, some guy comes up to me and says “This is Obama/Biden Country”.
I couldn’t resist. My retort:
“Oh, well that explains why I have been unable to find a job for the past seven months.”
Maybe he will stop harassing complete strangers.
“The bottom line is we’re not broke, there’s plenty of money, it’s just the government doesn’t have it, The government has a right, the government and the people of the United States have a right to run the programs of the United States. Health, welfare, housing – all these things.”
Oh and it gets scarier than this, listen to what he wants to spend new tax dollars on:
“fund international sustainable prosperity programs such as health care investments, AIDS treatment, research and prevention programs, climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts by developing countries, and international assistance.”
He wants to tax every single trade on the stock and commodity markets, and he doesn’t even want to spend it in this country. The government actually doesn’t have right. He doesn’t even understand our founding documents. They give rights to the citizens, not to the government. Asshat.
I love the pacific northwest, especially Seattle. It is simply beautiful. But I could never live there. The people are certifiably insane out there. Shortly after the state announces it will spend millions upon millions of tax payer dollars to make all state paperwork gender neutral comes this,
An internal memo at Seattle City Hall is causing quite a stir. It suggests government workers no longer use the terms “citizen,” or “brown bag.”
According to the Office for Civil Rights, the terms are potentially offensive and other words should be used.
Citizen should be changed to residents and they have not quite come up with a replacement for brown bag, they are thinking sacked lunch may be more appropriate. Oh my. Apparently someone has gotten into their head that brown bag is a racial slur.
And while city leaders publicize “brown bag” lunch meetings as a way to designate a bring-your-own lunch time event, the term has a sorted history.
“It used to be a way people could judge skin color,” Bronstein said in a phone interview
Don’t these lawmakers have anything more pressing to deal with than this? I mean Seattle has one of the highest levels of homelessness in the country and this is what they are choosing to deal with? Have you ever heard anyone use the term brown bag lunch as a racial slur? I didn’t think so.
Is is any wonder that our society and government is in such a mess?
Another Blogger and radio host Matt Walsh received a letter from a listener. It was from a father that feels that Matt is a “right winged extremist” for thinking his children should do chores, and eventually get a job when they are teens.
“Matt, I heard your horrible conversation today about parenting. A few comments in response:
1) Based on your remarks, I have to say I feel bad for your kids. You sound like the sort of person who never should have been a parent. You said you plain to teach your kids “how to think.” I guess this is common in right wing religious fundamentalist households. Personally, I let my child form his own conclusions about things. To impose your views on a child is tantamount to child abuse. Do them a favor, let them think FREELY.
2) You greatly exaggerate the importance of “chores.” Also, the idea that a kid should be forced to “get a job” is abhorrent. My son was very gifted so we gave him all the tools to succeed academically. This meant we didn’t turn him into slave labor and we certainly didn’t tell him he needed to go work behind a cash register. He concentrated on his school work, and we did our job as parents and financially supported him.
3) It’s easy to mock a “30 year old who lives with is parents.” My son is almost 29 and he’s been home with us since he graduated. Unfortunately the job market isn’t the greatest (maybe you hadn’t heard) and I’m not going to let him starve on the street. He has a college education, it’s pointless for him to be out working in a retail store or some other menial job. I will be here for him until he is able to get the job he deserves.
You need to grow up, get some life experiences and then maybe you’ll have the right to sermonize about parenting.
Just a thought here, if Nick Jr. were so gifted wouldn’t he have been able to figure out how to make a living even in a bad economy? This reminds me of a story. About a month ago I went out with my best friend’s mother. The event we went to was being held in the local VFW. I was sitting at a table waiting for the event to get started. While I was waiting this man came over and introduced himself. For whatever reason he started telling me his life story. He is in his 80′s. He was telling me that when he was a young man his father forced him to get a job and would take most of his pay for rent. He promised himself that he would never do that to his children. He goes on to tell me that he never charged a dime in rent to any of his three children. He then went on and told me that his 47-year-old son was still living at home and never paid rent. He told me this story like it was a good thing. I asked if his son was married? He told me that his son had problems finding a “good woman”. Hmm, is the fact that he is middle-aged and has never had any sense of caring for himself be part of the reason?
I wasn’t rude and didn’t say anything to the man. He believes that he has done his children a favor. I happen to disagree. I think it important to teach children a sense of responsibility. I was having another conversation with another older gentleman he knows and he told me that he and his wife were having a conversation a few weeks ago and they have come to the realization that they never let their children grow up. They did so much for them that they are constantly having problems in their lives when it comes to taking responsibility. I am not at all surprised.
Of course, as a parent, you should help your children when they are in trouble. If they hit hard times while an adult, sure let them move in and help them out until the get back on their feet. If you can afford it, throw them a little rent money if they need it. But to be the only support system for them is not helping them. It more than likely is hurting them.
In the case of Nick, Jr, how does he date or even just go out with the friends if he has no income? Are they also supporting his personal life? I would think a man of that age wants to leave the house on occasion. Does he have a car? If so, who pays for that? That would require insurance, gas, and the occasional repair, would it not? What if he wants to go out for wings and a beer to watch Monday Night Football?
We are raising a generation of people who can’t help themselves. How exactly are they going to govern this country when their time inevitability comes? A very terrifying thought.
Here is Matt’s response to Nick. It is a little meaner than I would ever be, but it is classic all the same:
1) Tell you what. How ’bout I blindfold you, drive you out into the middle of the desert at night, and then leave you there without a map or a GPS? It’ll be great. You can just travel FREELY. After all, who am I to bring you to this place and then presume to tell you how to navigate? I’m just the guy that kidnapped you and dumped you into a hostile, cold wilderness. It would be presumptuous and authoritative of me to offer you direction and guidance. So I’ll let you wander around aimlessly until you collapse exhausted in a ditch, and are eaten slowly by wild scavengers. You’re welcome. I mean, I assume you’ll be grateful. I’ll merely be applying your parenting technique to the situation.
By the way, did you ever tell your kid not to play in the street? Did you instruct him about the dangers of hot stoves and fallen electrical wires? This is a quandary. See, if you imposed your anti-high voltage power line views on your kid, then apparently you’re guilty of abuse by your standards. However, if you didn’t, you’re guilty of reprehensible neglect by the standards of civilized human beings. I’m not an expert on parenting. I never claimed to be. But you don’t need to be an expert to know that one of the fundamental tasks of a parent — and this really speaks to the whole point of the endeavor — is to teach your child how to navigate the physical, moral, spiritual and intellectual dangers of life. This includes teaching them how to think, which could also be referred to as passing on your values and your worldview. If you have no interest in doing this, then I would suggest that you never really wanted a child — you wanted a friend. Now you have one. Living at home with you. Forever. Congratulations.
2) Chores schmores. What can they teach a kid? Discipline, obedience, and hard work? Screw that. What is this, the 50′s? Listen, Nick, don’t take this the wrong way, but what leads you to the conclusion that your son is “gifted”? He can’t mow the lawn, work a job, earn a living, pay a bill, apply a skill, or support himself, yet he’s “gifted”? What are his gifts, exactly? You know, something tells me an astronaut’s parents never have to inform people that their child is “gifted.” People sort of pick up on that based on context clues. They behold his accomplishments and admire his achievements. They can SEE his gifts. He uses them, applies them, refines them. Your son MIGHT have gifts — the jury is still out — but whatever they may be, they’ll atrophy and whittle away the longer he spends lounging in a bean bag chair eating macaroni and cheese.
3) So your brilliant and gifted 29 year old son would “starve” if he was forced to take care of himself? The “gifted” standard is getting lower by the day, isn’t it? I’ve been living independently and taking care of myself since before I could legally drink a Heineken. I guess that makes me a Nobel candidate — if your helpless grown adult son gets to set the bar for “gifted.”
The kind of oblivious snobbery you display used to be reserved for classes of nobility and royalty. Now, any drooling schlub who spent 4 years getting drunk and fornicating at college can claim to be “too good” for almost every available job. Your son isn’t above anyone. He certainly isn’t superior to hard working cashiers and retail clerks who support themselves, raise families and live full lives, as your little snowflake hides under his bed while mommy makes him hot cocoa and tells him he’s special.
News flash, Nick: Junior ain’t special. He graduated school, good for him. Anyone can do that if they’ve got money, time and no pressures or responsibilities from the outside world. Your little pumpkin doesn’t “deserve” a job. I wouldn’t hire him to dig a ditch, much less take on serious responsibilities of any kind. You can spend your whole life telling everyone what you and your son deserve, meanwhile the rest of us will be out in the world, earning, striving, accomplishing, living.
Nick, it’s somewhat peculiar that you chose to end your email by chastising me for not having “life experiences.” I’m two years younger than Nick Jr and I’m married with two kids. I’ve got a career in broadcasting and goals for the future that I’m steadily working toward achieving. I’m not exactly at the point where I’ve got enough material to write my memoirs, but I’ll get there one day. In any case, you, my friend, need to take that “life experiences” lecture and bring it home to the pudgy couch potato sleeping in your basement.
Thanks for the email.
Apparently Anthony Weiner has not cured his fetish of sending pictures of his penis to women he doesn’t know. Knowing this information he and his wife Huma decided to the enter the race for the democratic primary in the New York City Mayoral race. It is pretty much a given whomever the democratic candidate for mayor is, wins the election. There are notable exceptions, but not many.
Yesterday during a press conference Weiner’s wife Huma not only decided to stand by her man, but also spoke. She talked about how hard it was on her marriage, how they have gone to therapy to deal with their problems, but she has been able to forgive him, for herself, for him, and their son. Well how nice for her. I am not going to sit in judgement of someone else’s marriage. She wants to stay with a man who was having phone sex with another woman while she was taking care of infant, that is her choice. It isn’t a choice that I would make, but hey to each their own.
During her press conference yesterday she also talked about how they discussed these issues before making the decision. You decided to go ahead anyway even when you knew that the public wasn’t aware of the latest of his phone pals? Did she think it wouldn’t come out or did she just not care? I suppose all this negative press that her son will one day have access to doesn’t matter. What kind of mother wants her child to read those kinds of stories about their father? I know I sure wouldn’t. This man has some deep psychiatric problems. I don’t think anyone can deny that at this point. I am not a big believer in the label of sex addict, but in this case it just may fit.
She also stood up in front of the press, and the entire country for that matter, and talked about how this happened “to them”. No, sweetie, this isn’t something that happened to you. This is something that you and your husband brought onto yourselves. No one forced you two to enter the race. It is not like their aren’t other people running in the primary. No one was beating down your doors on bended knee begging you to come and save New York City because no other qualified democrat was wiling to take on the job.
This is about two people who are so hungry for power and prestige that they will willingly throw away their pride and dignity to achieve it. A man who can’t control his urges and then so easily lies about those urges cannot be trusted. He is also putting himself in the position to blackmailed. How exactly is this the right thing for New Yorkers? It also goes to show how little they think of the voting public. You are so stupid that you can’t see for yourselves that this man is not qualified to hold public office. You will just buy into the rhetoric that they are fighting for the middle class. By democrats own definition of “rich” they are. So what do they know about your plight?
The keys to Gracie Mansion are more important than shielding their son from having an archive of tawdry information available for his reading displeasure. That tells you everything you need to know about both of these people.
Huma, the put upon wife, has enabled her husband’s behavior. She is not worthy of any sympathy. Any and all pain he brings into her life and that of her son falls squarely on her shoulders. No wonder the founding fathers warned us of the perils of power.
“When does life begin? I submit the answer depends an awful lot on the feeling of the parents. A powerful feeling – but not science. The problem is that many of our policymakers want to base sweeping laws on those feelings.”
I just love how progressives think everything is about feelings. Your gender isn’t about biology. Life isn’t about biology. Yet, I am anti-science. Alrighty then.

No, Abortion Isn’t Used as Birth Control – Male Blogger Worries Casual Sex in Texas Will Be Harder to Come By
Yes, someone really made the claim that men in Texas need to care about the abortion bill in Texas because of casual sex.
Your sex life is at stake. Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? Making abortion essentially inaccessible in Texas will add an anxiety to sex that will drastically undercut its joys. And don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by.
Well if that isn’t a reason to keep abortions beyond five months legal, I don’t know what is. I suppose that he can continue to make the argument that wanting abortions to be safe and being against basic safety procedures such as doctors having hospital privileges in a hospital within a 30 mile radius is also keep him from getting some.
You want to decide when and if to have kids. This bill will force thousands of Texas men into unplanned fatherhood by making it impossible for women to access an abortion in the event of an unplanned pregnancy. Even if you want to have kids, you probably don’t want an accident to make you a father before you’re psychologically ready and able to care for a child. If you don’t want kids, you don’t want the narrow, personal views of politicians in the state government to force you to have them.
I guess it is impossible to ask someone to show a little self control or may be wear a condom. That wouldn’t help him from getting a little somethin’ somethin’ when the mood strikes. Heaven forbid men actually realize that their actions have consequences. We wouldn’t want that to happen now would we?
Again, no mention of the life created, just about what is easy and convenient for adults involved. Why should the risk of creating another human life get in the way of having a good time.
Almost half of all pregnancies are unplanned and unintended. Of those, over 40% currently end in abortion. What happens to those 40% if this law passes? Are you willing to roll the dice with your girlfriend’s health and safety?
Again, let me get this straight, ensuring that all abortion clinics in Texas are close to hospital and have standards of cleanliness is risking their health and safety?
The world is just plum crazy, up is down, and black is white.
“did not have access to services that are so crucial that Planned Parenthood helps provide.”
Chelsea Clinton talking about people who gave birth to her grandmother. One must wonder if she understood that what she really said there was that her grandmother, her mother, and she herself, could have been prevented had planned parenthood existed back then. Considering she worked so hard for her mother to become the first female U.S. President she would see for herself that just because a child is not planned, doesn’t mean that the child isn’t wanted nor can they not achieve amazing things. Asshat
Obama Has ‘Never Done Anything Wrong in His Life Legally, Ethically, Whatever’
If you ever needed any proof that love is blind, here it is.
I must have missed the time in New York when smoking pot and snorting cocaine were legal.
As we all know Anthony Weiner has decided that he wants to be New York City’s next mayor. Now let’s be honest here, he won’t be all that much of a step down from Nanny Bloomberg, but he really does expect people to forget his perv past. Apparently he doesn’t even like it when a democrat questions him on it. District leader Chris Owens asked:
“I have a three-word question: How dare you?”
“I am outraged and disgusted by you. Both by what you did and by the fact that you have the arrogance to run for mayor.
“I want to understand how you explain to us how you used a public facility to tweet offensive material to . . . minors you did not know, you then lied about it . . . and now you come back.”
“I appreciate the question Chris, and I know some people may feel that way.
“I think it might be influenced in part . . . [because] I supported Yvette Clarke over you when you ran for Congress [in 2006.]”
“I apologize to you, but now people have to decide whether or not that disqualifies me.
“Frankly, everyone wasn’t going to vote for me whether I did that or not.”
But he fully expects people to vote for him in spite of it:
When asked about how he handle a teacher accused of doing the same type of thing his response was:
“If you believe that my personal failings disqualify me, then don’t vote for me. I’m going to win this election and I’m going to govern this city really well. You’re supporting another candidate who’s not going to win.”
Sadly I am not even stunned by this. I should be, but I am not. This is what our government has come to. We elect people who have shown through their actions that they can’t be trusted. The truth is this, we get the government that we deserve. When we have candidates that can text obscene photos of their private parts to underage strangers and they truly believe that they still have a political future there can be no wonder why our country is in such a mess.
Elected officials are entrusted with tax payers dollars, they make choices that affect how we live our daily lives, and expecting them to be someone who has character and sense of decency isn’t a great deal to ask. We all make mistakes, we all have things in our lives that we wish we could take back, but sexting pics of your penis and various stages of undress, while in a building that is paid for by the tax payers, really is a step too far. The fact that he even may have a chance to become an elected official again is nothing short of tragic.
Do we really have any chance of turning this ship around if this is the type of people we elect? Congressman Mark Sanford should not be in congress and Anthony Weiner shouldn’t be the next mayor of New York City. Morality matters, no matter what letter you put after your name.
