First dive resulting in a fine. It was so blatant.

Bernie Sanders is a -90 on voting record by the way, which means Rand Paul is further right on voting record than Bernie Sanders is left.

The scale runs from -100 to 100.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The parents of a Missouri eight-year-old boy are outraged after they say their blind son’s cane was taken away and replaced with a pool noodle.

Dakota Nafzinger, who was born without eyes, attends Gracemor Elementary School in Kansas City. Rachel Nafzinger told WDAF the school took away her son’s cane as punishment for bad behavior on the bus and gave him a swimming pool noodle to use as a substitute.

North Kansas City School District Spokeswoman Michelle Cronk confirmed the school took away Dakota’s cane, calling it school property that was given to him when he enrolled.

Cronk said the school took the cane after he reportedly struck someone on Monday while riding the bus. Cronk said the boy “fidgets” without his cane, so a pool noodle was given to him as a substitute.

Dakota’s father, Donald Nafzinger, said his son lifts his cane sometimes and the bus driver thought he was using it violently.

“They said they were going to give me this for the next two weeks,” Dakota said.

Dakota’s family claims the cane was taken as a way of “humiliating” him for misbehaving.

“All around, he’s a good little guy, and he shouldn’t be treated the way he’s being treated,” Donald Nafzinger said.

Jeb Bush announced he was going to be running for president in 2016, so Nate Silver's 538 did a chart of where he leans politically as well as where other potential candidates do as well as past presidents.

click for big.

State Highway symbols. If you're wondering what the weird ones are, Washington is a profile of George Washington, Utah is a bee hive, Wyoming has a symbol of a cowboy on it, New Mexico's is based on their flag which is based on the symbol for the royal house of Aragon, North Dakota has a Souix chief, New Hampshire is the Old Man of the Mountain, which actually fell off and collapsed 11 years ago.

California is getting a lot of rain the last couple of days, here's how the reservoir system was looking before the rain, this storm should cover between 1/5 and 1/3 of the water needed to bring the state out of the drought in the areas that it will be raining. The reservoirs need even more to make up for their shortfall.

Just so everyone reading is clear, that quote is the CIA response to the report, not part of the report.



Torturing the wrong people



Butt stuff.


Torturing their own informants.


Staying safe.

The US Torture Report was released today, so maybe let's find things from that and reactions to that to talk about.

A Texas gun-rights activist avoided serious injury over the weekend when a suspected drunken driver slammed into him after leaving his observation of a DUI checkpoint.

Kory Watkins, a “cop watcher” and president of the Open Carry Tarrant County group, said he was on his way home from a protest at a traffic safety checkpoint set up by Arlington police when he was struck from behind by another vehicle.

“A drunk driver was going around 100 mph and smashed into the back of me,” Watkins said on his Facebook page. “I could not control the car, I went sideways, then flipped 3 times, hit a cement piller to stop my roll and put me in a ditch on The side of (Interstate) 287. I was 2 miles from being home. I am incredible lucky to be breathing. I can’t tell you how lucky I am to be alive.”

Watkins had been alerting other drivers to the checkpoint — which courts have upheld as constitutional but the libertarian activist describes as revenue-generating scheme — and shouting “You criminals!” at officers as they stopped drivers.

He later thanked officers for checking on his well-being after the crash, although he was ticketed for driving without a valid license.

“I don’t ask for permission to drive a car I paid for on a road I paid for,” Watkins said.

He posted on Facebook that he did not advocate drinking and driving, but he also said he didn’t believe there should be laws against drunken driving.

Watkins lashed out at his critics who pointed out the layers of irony in the incident.

“I see a few sick I individuals taken time to think this is a joke or it’s funny that the cops helped me,” Watkins said. “Let me say this. I am happy the police showed up to catch him but I’m trying to figure out where they helped me any….. Was it the part where they showed up 15 minutes after the crime or was it when they wrote me a 300$ ticket after my car was totaled?”

“Any sick f*ck that thinks this is the time to crack irony jokes can go the hell away,” Watkins continued. “I’m lucky to be alive. There are some sick people that try to take a situation and spin it to fit their beliefs when they don’t know crap. Some sick people …. Mother f*cker almost dies and people are joking about it. Disgusting.”

Here's a picture of him from a few months back:
