Yesterday I rested, as I’m still well short of full speed. I’m current with replies. Today I take on the paperwork I ducked yesterday.
Jig Zone Puzzle:
Today’s took me 3:37 (average 4:22). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From MoveOn: Bernie Sanders On The Senate Floor Today [Thursday]: ‘What If There Were 83 Women Senators?’
Republicans tried to screw all of us, not just women.
From Bloomberg: President Barack Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board can’t be challenged as part of a lawsuit over requirements for businesses to inform employees of their rights, a judge ruled.
U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington yesterday said the National Federation of Independent Business and other trade groups “attempted to shoehorn a challenge” to the recess appointments into a case over a rule mandating that companies notify workers of their rights to form a union.
“The court declines this invitation to take up a political dispute that is not before it,” Jackson said in her six-page ruling. She didn’t rule on whether the appointments were legal.
While this battle has just begun, at least these corporate criminals did not get away with a challenge on the cheap that was hidden within an unrelated issue.
From TribLIVE: Former [state] House Speaker John Perzel, R-Philadelphia, will be sentenced on March 21 on felony charges for directing a Republican Caucus effort to use public resources for campaigns.
Perzel pleaded guilty in August to overseeing the theft of $10 million in taxpayers’ money used to buy sophisticated computer equipment and technology to gain an edge in Republican campaigns.
This his how Republicans try to maintain power through crime, at taxpayer expense, wherever fools put them in control.
