With the discovery that Hillary used the family's web server for communication while serving as Secretary of State they believe tbat they can finaly find what they have been seeking all these years.

Check below the Diary Doodle* for the true goal of the GOP.

My Physics Teacher Lied

by Tomtech

The least important things sometimes, my dear boy, lead to the greatest discoveries.
The Doctor (William Hartnell) Serial: The Space Museum Episode: The Dimensions of Time (1965).

Gravity (Wikipedia):

Every planetary body (including the Earth) is surrounded by its own gravitational field, which exerts an attractive force on all objects. Assuming a spherically symmetrical planet, the strength of this field at any given point is proportional to the planetary body's mass and inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the center of the body.
The strength of the gravitational field is numerically equal to the acceleration of objects under its influence, and its value at the Earth's surface, denoted g, is expressed below as the standard average. According to the International Bureau of Weights and Measures, under the International System of Units (SI), the Earth's standard acceleration due to gravity is:
g = 9.80665 m/s2 (32.1740 ft/s2).
I'm beginning to have my doubts.

The House's suit will backfire

by Tomtech

Based on the normal timing of a lawsuit it is very possible that the suit will backfire on the Republicans and the Democrats will get press supporting the President and complaining about the House's wasteful spending.

"You say you Want a Revolution"

by Tomtech

The Beatles, Revolution:

You say you want a revolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright
You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We'd love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We're doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright, al...
You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright

Responsible Gun Owner Fail.

by Tomtech

Around 35 miles from my home a hunter was killed in an example of how gun owners handle their weapons.

Hunter killed in Harrison County:

The witness said that he and Huffman were going hunting and he had entered a deer stand. The witness stated he climbed up a ladder and then turned to receive his weapon. Huffman reportedly handed the rifle to the witness and the rifle discharged as the witness received the rifle with the muzzle pointing downward toward the Huffman.
Remember that when handing a gun to your hunting partner ensure the gun has a round chambered and hold the barrel such that it points toward you.

Many voters should thank Wendy Davis

by Tomtech

I can attest to first hand knowledge of the effects of Wendy Davis' Floor Amendment #41 to the Texas' Voter I.D. law. Around 40% of the voters at my voting box, where I served as a judge, would have been prevented from voting without our application of the "similar name" amendment.

See my diary with my report from last night.

Texas Election Judge's Diary

by Tomtech

After spending 13 hours at the polls as the Election Judge, I am here to report what happened in relation to the new Voter I.D law. Almost 40% of the voters had ID's which didn't match their listing on the voter roles.

I hope we did everything by the book since a state inspector showed up 15 minutes before the polls open and then returned for the last two hours and remained until we signed the report from on voting machine's total voters report.
