A: Abuse the idea of 'recess appointments'

B: Get called on it
C: The NLRB said the administration would appeal the case and in the meantime would continue to do its duties as if the court’s ruling didn’t happen.
Pretend you don't have to pay attention to what the courts say.  From The Most Transparent Administration EVER!!

Speaking of,
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Friday that he is demanding the White House answer "serious constitutional questions" about whether the administration can order a drone strike on American soil.
“We’re talking about someone eating at a cafe in Boston, or New York, and a Hellfire missile comes raining in on them," Paul said during an appearance on Fox News. "There should be an easy answer from the administration on this. They should say, ‘Absolutely no, we will not kill Americans in America without an accusation, a trial and a jury.’ ”

Administration response: [crickets chirping]

Now, that paradox has continued right off the bat in the second term. In the State of the Union, Obama once more went after “the few” and “the wealthiest and the most powerful,” whom he blasted as the “well-off and the well-connected” and the “billionaires with high-powered accountants.”

Like clockwork, the president then jetted to West Palm Beach for yet another golfing vacation at one of the nation’s priciest courses, replete with lessons from a $1,000-an-hour golf pro to improve the presidential putting.

The rest of the first family jetted off on their own skiing vacation to elite Aspen, Colo., where nobody accepts that at some point they’ve already “made enough money.” Meanwhile, below the stratosphere, unemployment rose to 7.9 percent for January — the 49th consecutive month it has been 7.8 percent or higher. The economy shrank in the last quarter of 2012, gas is back to almost $4 a gallon, and the government continues to borrow almost $4 billion a day.

If they can get all that crap into a box that size, it'll be worthy of applause from Houdini.
Found over here.

Well, of COURSE it is!
President Barack Obama’s adopted hometown of Chicago hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1927, but in the eyes of CNN regular and Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman, the rampant violence currently plaguing the city is the fault of the Republican Party.

Hey, Howler Cuomo, shove this up your ass: 57 companies who won't sell to New York.

Finally, to take some of the bad taste Howler leaves in your mind, I've read about Ed Freeman before; it still gives me chills to read this:
You're an 18 or 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley, 11-14-1965. LZ Xray, Vietnam. Your Infantry Unit is outnumbered 8-1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.
You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you're not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.
Then, over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter, and you look up to see a Huey, but it doesn't seem real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.
Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not Medi-Vac, so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.
He's coming anyway.
And he drops it in, and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.
Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the Doctors and Nurses.
And, he kept coming back...13 more times...and took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.
Medal of Honor Recipient Ed Freeman died August 20, 2008 at the age of 80, in Boise, ID. May God rest his soul.

And just added #58. They're coming in so fast I can't keep up. I need an intern in here STAT!

This is pretty cool. Did you see that Lauer, the makers of DuraCoat told Bloomie to suck it, again?

No, hadn't noticed that.

The more, the merrier! And louder
