MR. ATTORNEY-GENERAL, PLEASE USE ALL OF YOUR POWER TO PROTECT ALL OF THE RIGHTS GUARANTEED TO VIA THE CONSTITUTION. THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW!
The effort to impeachAttorney General Eric Holder is in retaliation for his efforts to block the new and restrictive voter ID laws in Texas. Most of the sponsors of the impeachment are Texas members of the House of Representatives. They will fail in their effort, but regard it as good practice for their 2015 effort to impeach President Obama if the GOP do well in the 2014 elections.

Jeb Bush is rightly considered to be the better Bush, but considering his father’s and his brother’s records, that is not saying much. For me to even consider him in 2016, he must speak honestly about both his brother’s record in office and President Obama’s record. I will accept neither “mistakes were made” nor the usual GOP lies. The only words I will listen to are honest ones.

I would finance expanded Social Security by means of a Robin Hood tax on financial transactions. Wall Street is setting new highs. Let those who can afford to pay a bit more in taxes help those who cannot.

Virginia State Senator Creigh Deeds has improved from critical to fair condition Tuesday after sustaining stab wounds at his Bath County home. His 24-year-old son, Gus, died from a gunshot wound at the scene less than a day after receiving a emergency mental health evaluation.

Dennis Cropper, executive director of Rockbridge County Community Services Board, said that Gus Deeds was evaluated on Monday under an Emergency Custody Order, but was released because there was no space in any of the regional psychiatric facilities, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports. Under an Emergency Custody Order, or ECO, Deeds could be held for as long as four hours to decide whether he could be held for up to 48…
