Selective enforcement. We have already seen that this president does not want to fulfill his constitutional duties in enforcing the laws on the books when he may disagree with such law. It has the potential to cause a constitutional crisis. It is his job to faithfully enforce the laws of the land, not make the law. That is the job and responsibility of the legislative branch.

You know the libs would be hooting an hollerin if this was an abortion case that the govt failed to pursue.

it is nothing more than divisive politics and playing to the base in an unprescidented manner.

So, this area is one I actually digress from most of my libertarian brethren. I wish the President would enforce the law. The only way to get the law overturned is to have it challenged, and you can't challenge it if it isn't enforced.

Furthermore, I find it disturbing that the executive branch can just choose not to enforce passed and ratified laws.

Yes, totally. He's a hypocrite at heart, after all.

She's asking for donations because she says a house race costs the average woman a billion dollars.

This could be delicious.

Sure to be delicious is this: Zimmerman will have a celebrity boxing match with DMX. Lasbar, could you tell us if this is just another racist attempt to beat a black man by Zimmerman?

Personally I expect Zimmerman to have his ass handed to him. Everyone knows white Hispanics are soft.

Some 15K people wanted the chance to step into the ring, sadly a washed up rapper was the best result.

Brooklyn Assemblyman William Boyland Jr. groused that his intolerably puny salary all but forced him to pursue payola, according to a surveillance recording played at his corruption trial in Brooklyn federal court Wednesday.

“I mean, we make $79,500 as an Assembly member,” he whined to an undercover agent posing as a businessman during a 2011 meeting at Keens Steakhouse in Manhattan.

“What the hell. That’s maybe my son’s tuition and maybe I pay for some gas, you know?” the pol said before letting out a guffaw.

“Yeah. In this city?” responded the agent.

“Right,” Boyland said. “How the hell are you gonna live off of that?”

80k is peasant money. a living salary would start around 250k

Yes, albeit a bare-bones no amenities lifestyle.

How much work is it being a NY Assemblyman? It seems like they spend more time trying to get bribed than actually doing anything.

I've heard that port authority is where the money is at. cushy jobs with plenty of connections and opportunities for bribes

holy crap in 2010 the executive directors salary was 500k which is 1.5 times the salary of both the nj and ny governor

I can confirm this as I have witnessed the video evidence from various documentaries such as, The Sons of Anarchy and The Wire.
