it's time for sticky paws and hairballs vs. fuzzy hugs and kitty kisses!
OK, now down to business...
First up; a great big sticky paw to the Supreme Court for two separate rulings so technically I guess that's two sticky paws with a dash of hairball thrown in and a side of hypocrisy for Justice Scalia!
In their supreme wisdom the court stuck down a law which allowed for a 35 foot buffer zone for those folks wanting to "talk" to women entering a clinic which provides legal abortions as well as other medical services. Ironically, the Supreme Court has a 100 foot buffer zone which they feel they need...hummm... DING, DING, DING wow they just won a place on my Hypocrisy Hall Of Shame.
The court also decided that President Obama has a lot of nerve passing any executive orders even though he has passed less than most other president before him and certainly nowhere near as many or as extreme as some of the executive orders that George W. Bush signed into law! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/26/supreme-court-recess-appointments_n_5533174.html
Next up; a big hairy hairball to John Boehner. Mr. Speaker announced he would be suing the president, he's not exactly sure what for but he'll let us know when he knows...seriously people I'm not making this up!
A big fuzzy hug to Wolves! http://www.aol.com/article/2014/06/24/study-wolves-can-communicate-with-just-their-eyes/20919025/
And last but certainly not least a big kitty kiss to John Stewart for explaining what happens when Open Carry and Stand Your Ground collide ;
Have a great weekend,

Hmmm interesting news Noodle! Especially the buffer zone story.ReplyDelete
president obama issued an executive order illegally, when congress wasn't technically in recess. bush didn't do that. nor clinton. the quantity has nothing to do with it.ReplyDelete
the particular case brought to the supreme court is an example of political game playing. congress WAS on a 20 day recess but would briefly gavel in every 3 days to prevent obama from being able to make any appointments. the funny part of that is that the gop controlled congress used a ploy invented by sen.harry reid to prevent bush from making any appointments during the 2 week thanksgiving break of 2007. bush followed the new "law" - obama didn't. thus the supreme court's unanimous decision.
i want the constitution to be adhered to, no matter who's in office. if we let obama get by with its flaunting, we set a precedent. a precedent that even a republican will be able to use. that's the big picture.
Happy Friday, Noodle!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the Long Shot video. It was enjoyable.ReplyDelete
When Mom heard about Mr. Speaker suing the President she decided he was even more wack-a-doodle than she already thought. As the saying goes, "certifiable." XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista JoReplyDelete
