    Why is it that the smartest opinions show up in political cartoons? Cartoonist have a few strokes to deliver a message and often hit it right on the nose. Pundits have columns of words or hours of airtime and continue to spew drivel.

    Good day all around.
    Just got home to see that Cory, Heidi and Mark have joined the Sane Side.

    I don’t understand what Joe Manchin is bellyaching about.
    How corrupt are these people?

      Utterly corrupt. We still may make it but it is going to take more than 41. Casey and Coon have not been as belligerent as Manchin on having the “debate” so we’ll see. But I don’t know how much longer I can tolerate any of them:-)

      Manchin is a Republican in everything except the “D” after his name. The problem with the Democratic “big tent” is we allow saboteurs and do nothing to keep them in the tent when it really counts.

      WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) β€” West Virginia has a dubious distinction: Less than half of its adult civilians have a job.

      State data compiled by the Labor Department show that West Virginia’s employment-to-population rate has fallen to 49.1% in January.

      In December, Mississippi became the second state to have an employment-to-population rate below 50%, at 49.7%, but, by January, that state’s figure had edged up to exactly 50%.

      The troubles that have befallen West Virginia have been well publicized. Notable among them is a diminished demand for coal.

      At 5.9%, West Virginia doesn’t have close to the worst state unemployment rate. But it’s a state where many have given up trying to find a job. At 17.6%, West Virginia has the highest percentage of working-age people on disability benefits, above the national average of 10.4%, according to 2012 data.


      He must have been a lousy Governor.

      Five of Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis’ deputy clerks have said they are willing to issue marriage licenses. Judge David Bunning said that would purge the contempt charge against Davis.

      The five told the judge they are willing to issue licenses to comply with the court order and avoid jail or fines.

      Nathan Davis, Kim’s son and who works in the office, was the only deputy to refuse the judge. The others still cited concernsβ€”a mix of religious objections and questions about their legal authority to sign off on forms without say so from Davis.


      I wonder which husband is the Daddy ?

        Did Davis succeed her mother in the job? Quite a little family thing they have going there on the government teat and yet they want to pick and choose whom to serve! smh

          I believe so. Nepotism is alive an well in Rowan County.

            And instead of keeping quiet and at least doing the work for which they’re well-paid, they have been trying to get richer likely at the expense of many of their fools. In some ways this Davis woman reminds me of the Alaska Barbie.

    Rev. Al’s ratings were Considerably Higher than Morning Joke’s—day after day after day.
    It is not now and has never been about the ratings with MSNBC,
    All that matters is the Message.

    Rev. Al, Joy Reid and Alex Wagner lost their shows but are still part of the network in other capacities, I think.
    Jose-Diaz Balart has been cancelled, too? First I’m hearing this.

      OK. I checked Mediate and JD Balart is indeed on his way out.
      The propaganda on MSNBC will be served to us mostly by white males of non-hispanic heritage.
      By for and about wealthy, white, Christian, male supremacy. Tamron and Rachel provide camoflague for now.

      Systemic and systematic white supremacy (founding fathers style.) Women and minority GOP will provide “balance.” Hah!!!

        Thanks, Donna. I read it.
        Rev. Al has been doing “Today in the GOP” for about a year now and even that couldn’t save him.

    from the article

    “Her six deputy clerks were given a half hour to decide if they would issue the licenses or possibly join Davis in jail, according to LEX 18 News. Five of the six decided to follow the order to grant the marriage license. The deputy clerk who has not agreed to follow the judge’s orders is Davis’ son, WOWK 13 reported.

    Davis, however, said she would not authorize the deputies to issue the licenses, prompting the judge to order she spend the night in July, WOWK 13 reported. The clerk’s office will begin issuing marriage licenses Friday morning nonetheless, WOWK 13 said, but the judge warned that without Davis’ approval those licenses may not be valid….

    “…White House spokesman Josh Earnest said that he hadn’t spoken to President Obama about the results of the hearing but that, “On principle, the success of our democracy depends on the rule of law. And there is no public official that is above the rule of law.”

    Democratic 2016 frontrunner Hillary Clinton also signaled she supported the judge’s decision, tweeting, “Marriage equality is the law of the land. Officials should be held to their duty to uphold the lawβ€”end of story.”
