DUmocrats - living proof that there are some folks who are too stupid to vote. As long as the pork dollars keep rolling in, it supports the DEAD BEAT class who make up the DUmocrat-voting base. Long term DUmocrats never retire until they’re carried out of congress like Sheets Byrd or the bloated windbag Floater Kennedy.

The Donkeys scrape the bottom of the barrel for candidates year after year, but always seem to manufacture enough “votes” to remain in office even after committing numerous crimes.

Rangel was told to stand in the House well as the censure was read by Pelooser and he was told to pay restitution and provide proof of payment for unpaid taxes relating to the 11 ethics violations.

No fines, nothing else, just the 'embarrassment' of the censure. And, after watching it, I'd have to say there was little embarrassment involved.

Very nice!

Rangel needs to be prosecuted.

Did you hear why he really walked out of his hearing last month? It was because the committee had lined up dozens of people (including Donald Trump) who would go on record (and under oath) testifying to his crimes.

There cannot be a standard for pols, and one for everyone else. Rangel was the megaphone calling for every business executive in the last 30 years to have the book thrown at them....even if their "crime" was arcane and obscure (i.e. "Conspiracy to do business with insider....something....maybe...but still CONSPIRACY!")

Now, Rangel will walk Scot Free.

Oh. Wow. He was censured.

I am so impressed.

I am so excited.

His liberal resume for advancement to positions of power is now enhanced in his party.

This is complete, worthless crap. It angers me more than I can say. This criminal sets tax law and enables the IRS to chase people like us down and throw us in jail for missing payment of taxes. Him and that corrupt elitist piece of crap Geithner.

He is a ridiculously wealthy man, and WHAT HAS HE EVER DONE TO PRODUCE WEALTH? NOTHING. He got ridiculously wealthy as a “civil servant”.

I hate that description, “civil servant”. He is nothing of the sort.

I believe the ruling requires him to pay that as well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxine_Waters

Maxines ethics hearing has been indefinitely postponed. ( IMHO she has consented now to let Obama radical community workers do their dirty work in Watts, to set up disorder and mayhem race riots when Obama loses in 2012, or in the run up to 2012). The deal has been cut.Part of that was to allow Pelosi to continue as minority whip.Maxine is the deputy whip.

There cannot be a different standard for MINORITIES than non-minorities.

This is simply “affirmative action” for crimes as opposed to employment. First the bar is lowered for “minorities” in academia and in the employment world.

Then non-minorities are automatically held to a “higher standard.” The bar is lowered in criminal cases and the book is thrown at non-minorities for the same crime.

The same is true for qualifying to get any type of gov’t assistance. There’s an unspoken “lower standard” that needs to be met by minorities to get on such programs. A non-minority with the same household size, same income level, same family situation will NOT get on such programs as easily as a minority family will; saw it happening ALL the time when I worked for subsidized housing.

Being a prominent black liberal still keeps you out of a deserved prison sentence; but it now no longer protects you from being told “shame shame!”

That's race relations progress.

And Wesley Snipes goes to jail.

This is just another slap in the faces of all of us who try to do right.

Obviously, there's one law for us, another law for them.

The sad thing is how few people notice.

That’s very disrespectful! Cab Calloway was just about the coolest cat to ever hit this rock!

I'll second that! One of a kind, for sure.

LOL. It takes a certain [something] to make those work.

I saw CC in concert the year before he died. He still had it.

I have a banana yellow suit, and a silver Lamé suit. Reet pleats, and pegged to the max. Four foot chains, and skinny, skinny belts. The Lamé suit probably wouldn’t make it through the airport radiation machine!

And “Censure” means exactly what?

A statement of “Tsk, tsk, you naughty boy”?

Jail time of what?

Fines of what?

Actual teeth?

Rangel gets fired from Congress?

Anything meaningful, such as would have happened to ordinary serfs?

His trial?

After the investigation of Obaba’s legality to be President.

And after Pelosi’s firing for incompetence for her statement: “we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it.”

After Obaba’s Treasury Secretary is prosecuted for tax cheating.

After Obaba’s Surgeon General is sent to a fat farm.

After pigs fly.
