* Tea party members always talk about "personal responsibility" but apparently it doesn't apply to them. Daily Kos has a post about the leader of the Oregon Tea Party, John Kuzmanich, and the fact that he has not paid his mortgage----in three years:

Washington County court records show Kuzmanich is more than three years behind in mortgage payments on a Beaverton duplex. The lender, the Federal National Mortgage Association, better known as Fannie Mae, has gone to extraordinary lengths—unsuccessfully, so far—to find Kuzmanich and serve him with court papers.....
Sounds like an example of "do as I say, not as I do."

As you may have heard, the football team at Grambling State refused to play their scheduled game this past week due to the conditions of their practice facility, program cuts, the increase of staph infections, and funding cuts at their school. The BleacherReport has the details along with pictures of what these young men have to work with in their facility.

ESPN notes:

....State funding for the school has been cut 57 percent since 2007-08, according to the school's fundraising literature. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and the state legislature have cut $269 million from higher education since 2009, the year Jindal turned down federal stimulus funds......

Bob Jindal and the rest of the Republican governors just don't want higher education to be funded because they don't like highly educated people.
