The Republican-controlled Missouri House will begin impeachment proceedings against Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon on Wednesday. Why? There are three reasons, according to the state legislature's judiciary committee. First, Nixon allowed legally-married same-sex couples in the state to file joint tax returns in order to keep the state consistent with the IRS's post-Defense of Marriage Act policies. Second, Republicans argue Nixon took too long to call a special election to replace legislative vacancies.
With the 2016 election looming on the horizon, I can't help but reflect on the St. Charles Co. caucus of 2012.
I was there as a Ron Paul delegate and witnessed what became known as the "Raucus Caucus", thanks in large part to the manipulations of my Republican Central Committee. I filed three days later to run for Central committee. Unfortunately, I lost in 2012 but I am running again, and this time, it's even more important that I win.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., April 16, 2014 – By a 5-2 party-line vote yesterday, a Missouri senate committee passed House Bill 1439 (HB1439), the 2nd Amendment Preservation Act. This is an “emergency” bill that seeks to nullify virtually every federal gun control measure on the books, “whether past, present or future.” Introduced by Rep. Doug Funderburk (R-St. Charles), it previously passed the state house by a vote of 110-36.
Liberty Rising: Another Ron Paul Republican Wins in Missouri
And that RPR is none other than.... ME!
That's right, I finally won the committeewoman seat for my precinct. I sort of wish I'd won it by beating an opponent, but I didn't; I won by default, because no one else signed up to run for the seat.
Liberty should be exercised in as many categories of one's life as possible. Here is my idea for marrying second amendment rights with crytocurrencies. I hope others agree.

Niakea Williams, a Missouri mother of a son with Asperger’s syndrome, is outraged after she was arrested for trying to help her special needs son at school.
Williams received a call from the school notifying her that her son was having a medical episode. “I was lying in bed when I received a frantic phone call from the teacher, Michael was panicking,” said Williams. She rushed to the school where school officials buzzed her into the building.
(KMOV) – A north St. Louis man claims he was unfairly handcuffed and detained by St. Louis Metropolitan Police and has the video to prove it.
On Monday Terry Robinson, 21, said officers saw him outside in the Blair neighborhood, handcuffed him and pretended to drive back to the police station. Robinson caught the conversation inside the police cruiser on his cell phone.
I was at my local Wal-Mart this morning with my wife and child because we forgot about daylights savings time and had an hour to kill before attending mass. We were there to purchase cocoa powder, a six pack of beer, and cat food. I did not know if we were going to be hassled over the beer, it being a Sunday and all. So we go to check out and the cashier asks for my ID which I give her and then she asks for my wife's ID. Not knowing if this had something to do with blue laws I was confused.
Well, the story of the FCC wanting to monitor the newsrooms is making this all clear.
(In case you missed it:
It's apparent there is a story loose that the upper echelon of our White House Mafia know is out but hasn't surfaced yet.
Some part of me thinks that Benghazi is a MUCH bigger story, as it keeps resurfacing in the news and many unanswered questions.
Some part of me thinks that there is info that hasn't been released yet by Snowden and Co. that the administration knows that they know about.
I am revisiting (with some flair) someone else's post from a little over a year ago.
The post linked to an inflation index put together using just campbell's tomato soup. I think it was called Campbell Tomato Soup Inflation Index.
Well, recently when my wife fell ill I was called upon to fetch a can of "chicken and stars".
Like a good dog I did as I was told..... and even brought home some new Saltines (the side everyone knows is required with this meal of invalids.)
Last night's episode (titled "ISPY") of the emmy winning show "Modern Family" seemed to have a somewhat hidden meaning embedded within it. Despite the fact that most viewers of the show likely won't consciously notice what I consider to be programming of their minds regarding the debate over privacy vs.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — It's a common practice among drivers who pass through a speed trap: Flash your headlights at approaching cars as a warning to slow down. Now, a federal court judge in Missouri says penalizing drivers for the headlight flash violates their First Amendment right to free speech.
U.S. District Judge Henry E. Autrey in St. Louis on Monday issued a preliminary injunction prohibiting the St. Louis County town of Ellisville from citing and prosecuting drivers who flash their lights to warn of radar and speed traps. Ellisville's city attorney said there are no plans to appeal.
Whole cities of "Scroungers" in Great Britain live off the Taxpayer teet for over 10 years - Out of control welfare systemSubmitted by joeinmo on Mon, 02/03/2014 - 01:05
"Scroungers" the term given to people in Great Britain who fake the ability to not work have taken over whole cities and have not worked for over ten years living off government monthly handouts.
Scroungers is my new word that I'm going to use to describe people who suck the life out of tax paying Americans and cheat and scam the ever growing Welfare system in the United States.
Rising propane prices have prompted some Missouri state senators to call for an investigation into why the typically abundant gas has been running low and putting a strain on people’s budgets.
Prices for propane nearly tripled last week at the Midwest supply and distribution hub of Conway, Kan.
State Sen. Mike Parson, R-Bolivar, on Friday asked Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster to see if companies are price gouging.
