Something to Know - 28 April

Rob Rogers

1.  Maureen Dowd's column today talks about the tizzy that the GeeOpie finds itself in trying to embrace or distance itself from the fringe-wing racism:

2.  This story is about how old established manufacturing establishments, located along rivers (Switzerland in this case) are identified as toxic polluters who dump their waste into the Rhine.  As time goes on, the companies clean up their act - well kind of.  They relocate their polluting behavior, and move on to other places (Toms River in New Jersey or China), and keep dumping toxic crap into rivers and streams.  Eventually, Rick Perry will have them all move to Texas, I guess:

3.  Paul Krugman climbs on the Old Wests Wagon that is piling on poor old Cliven Bundy.  Maybe this will be the end of this episode - for now we can talk about the NBA LA Clippers owner, and a change of venue:

4.  So, put everything on the table, mix it up, and look into the future.  The Republican Party (the mainstream and the GeeOpie), has a problem.   Are they smart enough to shape up, or are they going to wallow in falsehoods of Ronald Reagan's governance and the Tea Party's agenda of extremism?:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms when serving in the Militia shall not be infringed.
--John Paul Stevens (former associate justice of the Supreme Court)
