What are Republicans for? We know they are against health-care reform. They voted en masse against it, shut down the government to stop it and have voted nearly 50 times to defund it. We know they are against government spending. They’ve voted for House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s draconian budgets, which would slash spending so deeply that even some Republicans are in increasingly open revolt. But those budgets don’t go anywhere. So what do Republicans propose that actually addresses the challenges facing the nation or its people?

Republican leaders are clearly concerned that their policy house is largely vacant. In his dissection of the lost 2012 campaign, Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus noted that Republicans suffer a “major deficiency” – the “perception that the GOP does not care about people.” He urged a renewed effort to become “the champion of those who seek to climb…

George Zimmerman arrest report, AUDIO of 911 calls

 

Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman was arrested earlier today near Orlando and charged with domestic violence, aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief after an alleged incident with his girlfriend Samantha Scheibe. Details about the arrest have been revealed slowly throughout the course of the day and now we finally have the actual arrest affidavit!

 

Here is the affidavit followed by a transcript of the written account of what happened from the report, which includes Zimmerman allegedly cocking a shotgun and aiming it at Samantha before smashing her glass coffee table with the butt of the gun. (She also mentions that Zimmerman had a AR Assault Rifle?!?)

CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM) — A conservative student group at the University of Texas has cancelled a controversial event scheduled for Wednesday in which students were encouraged to “Catch an Illegal Immigrant”.

According to the event Facebook page (which has since been removed), members of the group were to wear signs around campus that say “illegal immigrant”. Any student who “captured” the student and returned them was to receive a $25 gift card.

Lorenzo Garcia, Chairman of the Young Conservatives of Texas-UT Chapter, issued a statement explaining why the group cancelled the event, which was condemned university officials.

“I spoke with our chapter’s members, and they are both concerned that the university will retaliate against them and that the protest against the event could create a safety issue for volunteers.”

While Garcia acknowledges that the decision to issue gift cards was “over-the-top”, he believes the drastic nature of the event was necessary…

GOP remains the ‘Party of No’

John Kasich, the Republican governor of Ohio, has done some surprising things lately. First, he did an end run around his state’s Legislature — controlled by his own party — to proceed with the federally funded expansion of Medicaid that is an important piece of Obamacare. Then, defending his action, he let loose on his political allies, declaring, “I’m concerned about the fact there seems to be a war on the poor. That, if you’re poor, somehow you’re shiftless and lazy.”

Obviously Mr. Kasich isn’t the first to make this observation. But the fact that it’s coming from a Republican in good standing (although maybe not anymore), indeed someone who used to be known as a conservative firebrand, is telling. Republican hostility toward the poor and unfortunate has now reached such a fever pitch that the party doesn’t really stand for anything else — and only willfully blind observers…
