John Dingell prepares to
say goodbye – and airs his
gripes with modern politics

Guardian [UK], by Paul Lewis

John Dingell, the longest-serving congressman in US history, lunched with journalists on Friday, sharing tales of politics from a bygone era and thanking the fourth estate for "the great power that you wield with your pen and your typewriter". The 87-year-old congressman, who has represented a Michigan district as a Democrat in the House of Representatives for almost six decades, has been on a valedictory tour since announcing, back in February, that he is retiring at the end of the year. He´s been touring gala parties, receiving medals and accolades for his record-breaking stint in Congress. Standing tall, Dingell is

Comments:
Toward the end of this tribute to a hack demoncrap it mentions that Dingell has gotten rich while spending almost 60 years as a congress critter. Wonder how that happened? And he thanks the press for the wonderful service they provide.

Please note the proper way to split this headline. Very few sources require "The." LCom Staff.

In the last 80 years this man has lived in his own district a grand total of three years. Dingell´s father was elected to serve the district in 1933 and since then Dingell has lived in DC the entire time except from 1952-1955 when daddy dearest died and he could take his seat. He is the prime example of what is wrong with DC and both parties. What a complete POS.

The problem lies squarely on those that kept re-electing him.

Term limits begin on election day.

He expects his wife Debbie to win his seat next.

Asked about his wealth ($7.6 million), having served in Congress all these years, he mumbles that any American can do it--due to compound interest.

Bet he made ample use of immunity to insider trading laws, too.

Isn´t it Detroit where the UN is getting involved in claiming that water is a human right and residents are entitled to it even if they are unable to pay their water bill? Dingell´s millions could pay for lots and lots of water I would think. Let´s refer the UN to him personally.

It wasn´t compound interest------the evil man thinks all except him are stupid.

He was really in a bad mood when DHS would give him fits at the airport. Did he finally get a free pass for no pat downs or xray scanning?

I met Dingell at a democrat picnic in the early 60s. Back then, he at least pretended to love his country. That changed a few short years later.

They should rename Detroit after him if he ever dies.

Man who killed wife

It always comes back to the dinner table with this guy. The 75-year-old Pakistani immigrant convicted in Brooklyn of beating his wife to death because she served him lentils instead of goat should get the minimum sentence, his lawyer argued Wednesday — because the lack of Pakistani food behind bars will be a hardship. “His inability to speak English and his inability to have Pakistani food will make his incarceration even more difficult than the average inmate,” defense attorney Julie Clark wrote in court papers seeking the minimum 15 years to life sentence for Noor Hussain. But prosecutor Sabeeha Madni

Nikola Tesla, who helped

Happy 158th birthday, Nikola Tesla. The anniversary of the Serbian-American inventor´s birth will be celebrated Thursday with cake and a flag-raising ceremony at his former laboratory in Shoreham, followed by discussions of his work at Shoreham-Wading River High School. Both events are free. Tesla, who was born July 10, 1856, in Croatia, has been credited with developing wireless technologies and devising some of the major components used in modern radio and electricity. Tesla achieved local fame in the early 20th century when he worked for about 12 years in a Shoreham lab called Wardenclyffe, at Route 25A and Randall Road.

After a week of especially heavy criticism, Hillary Clinton is defending the hefty price tags on her university speeches. (Via Getty Images) In an interview with ABC Friday, Clinton said she has given every penny of the thousands of dollars she´s earned giving paid speeches over the last year and a half to her family´s charitable foundation. "All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and life-saving work. So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation."

Is the Name Kaffir Lime Racist?
Slate Magazine, by L.V. Anderson    Original Article
Posted By: snakeoil- 7/5/2014 2:20:14 PM     Post Reply
If you’re an American, you might not flinch when you hear a certain bumpy green citrus fruit referred to as a kaffir lime. But in many parts of the world—most notably South Africa—the common moniker for the fruit, best known as an ingredient in Southeast Asian cooking, sounds heinously offensive. As Veronica Vinje recently pointed out on Straight.com, kaffir is “a horrible racial epithet, akin to using the N-word in North America.” So why are these limes called by that name? The K-word has a long, complex history, but how it came to refer to a type of citrus fruit is a bit murky. The Arabic word kafir was originally used to refer to

Global animal lovers are up in arms over a teenage Texas girl´s love of killing big African game, so much so that they´re even demanding she be banned from posting pictures of herself smiling alongside her trophies online. Nineteen-year-old Kendall Jones claims photos of dead hippos, elephants, lions and other beasts on Facebook are a testament to her hunting skills and dedication to game preservation. But critics are appalled by the teen´s beaming social media and are calling Kendall sick and depraved for killing the rare animals and boasting about it online.

CBS46 morning show host Michelle Burdo used the dated term “colored woman” during a segment about summer hair tips Monday morning during the 9 a.m. CBS Better Mornings Atlanta program. “Let me tell you something,” Burdo said during a live segment to an African-American woman who appears to be the hair expert. “I’m not a colored woman but I have kinky hair just like her and when you straighten it every day, it’s…” She pauses.

Delta Air Lines, under a deluge of worldwide ridicule, issued an apology Tuesday for using an image of a giraffe to represent Ghana, where no giraffes live (except perhaps in zoos). Delta tweeted the celebratory message Monday after the U.S. team defeated Ghana 2-1 in their World Cup game. The tweet showed a photo of the Statue of Liberty with a "2" next to it and a photo of a giraffe with a "1" next to it. The counter-tweets and web-based news stories came fast and furious, with such headlines as "Delta discovers that there are no giraffes in Ghana"

This is his fundamental transformation of America ... President Obama´s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here ...

In his weekly radio/YouTube address, President Obama derided House Republicans’ planned lawsuit against him, warning that GOP lawmakers will spend taxpayer dollars on a frivolous legal challenge. “It’s a political stunt that’s going to waste months of America’s time. And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars,” Obama said. (Video) House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has orchestrated the beginnings of a lawsuit against the president over his use of executive authority. As the White House and the GOP-controlled House have failed to compromise on a slew of issues during Obama’s tenure, the president has

BOSTON — Comedian Bill Cosby and his wife Camille are supporting protesters marching across Massachusetts in opposition to Kinder Morgan’s proposed natural gas pipeline. The couple, who own hundreds of acres of protected land in Shelburne Falls, about 100 miles west of Boston, have been opposed to the pipeline since the company notified them last winter of plans to survey their land. Through a spokesman, the couple said it was “astounding” that New England’s six governors support the proposal, which they said shows “disrespect for humans, flora and fauna.” Supporters of the $3.75 billion Northeast Pipeline Extension Project say it will provide

Glenn Beck has set up Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund to help illegals coming into the United States. He’s already raised $600,000. Beck stated that Obama would not have to step in and ask for $3.7 billion if private charities would pick up the slack and give to the swarm of illegals crossing the border. Is he kidding? Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care? It’s the working class and middle class who will take the hit.

On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’s “NewsHour” New York Times columnist David Brooks and Creators Syndicate columnist Mark Shields took on the House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against the Obama administration, which alleges oversteps in executive authority by the Obama White House. Both acknowledged Boehner’s gripe with the Obama administration had merit, but were skeptical of the lawsuit’s chances. However, they both also took on the alternative offered by former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), which was to impeach President Barack Obama. Both dismissed that course of action as well, with Brooks calling it “cloud cuckoo land.” Partial transcript as follows: WOODRUFF: So the Highway Trust
