Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid raised the possibility Tuesday of another rules change to curtail filibusters, saying he is increasingly frustrated that Republicans are sticking to the letter of the rules and delaying action on dozens of President Obama’s nominations.

If you are part of the large contingent of the American population that opposes Obamacare, one Democratic senator says it’s probably because you’re a racist.

Putting that Collins guy aside, what I saw watching everything I could connect to regarding 'Operation American Spring" I could get my hands on was creepier than all get-out!
Those gathered at the Washington Monument for this 'event' did some speechifying, then lined up and marched to the edge of the park, where they did some more speechifying.
Then I saw them straggle all along the length of the National Mall with ardent prostesters in front chanting "IMPEACH... OBAMA!" in such a manner as to leave the older, slower folks behind (I've seen it many times).
If you go 55mph for 8minutes how far did you go?
This stream isn't just some guy in an RV talking to people in DC, It is (at the time of posting) LIVE at the washington Monument where hundreds of people are gathered for the kickoff of Operation American Spring.

Rand Paul threatens to hold Federal Reserve nominees unless his Fed audit gets a vote
BY JOSEPH LAWLER | MAY 12, 2014 AT 6:07 PM
Sen. Rand Paul threatened Monday to place a hold on three nominees to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors unless his bill to subject the Fed to an audit gets a vote in the Senate.
It's a replay of a maneuver the libertarian Republican and Fed critic attempted last year when current Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen's nomination was under consideration.
Benghazi Commission: The End Of Hillary Clinton’s Political Career
May 10th, 2014
There are very ‘good’ reasons why the House Democrats are making threats of boycotting the recently approved commission on the Benghazi attack. All of them know that President Obama and the Secretary of State at the time, Hillary Clinton, did not properly discharge their duties during the attack.
Weeper Boehner was forced into allowing a select committee on Benghazi, with Trey Gowdy leading the committee. Boehner made sure to stack the committee with a bunch of squish, RINO Republicans in order to soften in the blow with his progressive pals in DC. Now, Weeper Boehner is refusing to have Lois Lerner arrested, something that is allowed with a contempt of Congress charge. Weeper doesn’t want to ‘go down that path.’ Pansy.
In other words, the White House installed enough solar panels to power six 50-watt bulbs for 20 hours each day. And if you’ve ever been inside the White House, or seen it from a distance, you’ll notice it’s lit up like a klieg light. Excerpted from Boston.com:
Citing security and other concerns, the White House won’t say how many panels now encase the top of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. or how much they cost. But the panels are expected to generate 6.3 kilowatts of solar power whenever the sun shines, the White House said, improving the building’s energy efficiency.
