The majority leader of the least productive House in the history of American politics, who was such a disaster that he also became the first Majority Leader to lose his seat in a primary, got his booby prize last week - a job with a big investment bank, complete with a $400,000/year salary and a lucrative sign-on package valued at $3.4 million.

The "Paper of Record" apparently has no editorial standards anymore.

A 3 year veteran of the Oklahoma City police department was arrested for sexually assaulting at least six different women. He would threaten them with arrest if they did not comply to his requests. Oh, and there could be more victims, but so far every one of his victims are black women between the ages of 34 and 58. Totally amazing and disgusting. And people wonder why there is protesting in Ferguson and questions, as well as a lack of trust, when it comes to those who are supposed to protect us.
