Did Perry Execute an Innocent Man? Cover-up's On

Burnt Orange Report is asking the question: has Texas' governor, Rick Perry, desperate to keep his job, undertaken Nixonian tactics?

Short answer: Sure looks that way. The Cameron Todd Willingham execution in 2004 has attracted attention -- but there're more examples, and the Willingham case appears now to be the one that's picked up public notice. Read below the fold...

It's only Indoctrination if w ain't doin' it this time

Thread: 

I mentioned earlier that many schools had decided not to show, live, the President's address to school children on the first day of his daughters' new school year. Now we're finding out that at least a few of those schools' claims they had no room in the curriculum or the class day for the address were (gasp) truthiness in service of obfuscation.

So all this time, the mercury wasn't in the kids' shots, it was in HFCS?

Be damned. Evidence that high fructose corn syrup, which was a ubiquitous part of the modern American diet starting about the time New Coke came out, has contained mercury all these years. Not the inert kind in old fillings, either. Might've figured into Colony Collapse Disorder, too. Read below the fold...

I hate Mondays like this

Dallas takes a licking and Tech takes a pounding, and I have a whole week to contemplate the folly of being a football fan. Yeesh.

One Federal Judge Ain't Buyin' Bailout Ponies

Thread: 

The Securities and Exchange Commission had accepted a Bank of America plan to pay a mere $33 million fine, but Federal Judge in the case isn't going along with the Merrill Lynch bonus hijinks any more than he will the AIG jiggery-pokery. Read below the fold...

Sigh. If only the Beltway hadn't hated earth tones.

This guy, remember, was wooden and offputting; he sighed too much and wore earth tones and threatened to put Social Security in a lockbox.

AlterNet points out that Al Gore was right.

But the Beltway wanted a President they could have a beer with...

Eight Years Ago -- Let's Not Forget What Republican Governance Brought Us

About this time of the afternoon eight years ago our Dallas office, which was then in a building near the Dallas World Trade Center, sent home all nonessential employees.

Those of us in Lubbock were left to stare in shock and dismay at the televised coverage of the events in New York City, Washington, D.C., and a field in Pennsylvania as the toll mounted and the terror spread. Read below the fold...

Congressman Joe Wilson: Read the Bill and Quit Lying, you Ass.

HR 3200:

False: Illegal Immigrants Will Be Covered

One Republican congressman issued a press release claiming that "5,600,000 Illegal Aliens May Be Covered Under Obamacare," and we’ve been peppered with queries about similar claims. They’re not true. In fact, the House bill (the only bill to be formally introduced in its entirety) specifically says that no federal money would be spent on giving illegal immigrants health coverage:

H.R. 3200: Sec 246 — NO FEDERAL PAYMENT FOR UNDOCUMENTED ALIENS

Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.
