Salt Lake City nurse and hero of the Republic Alex Wubbels may well have prevented Utah state and Salt Lake City cops from apparently attempting to slur the character or frame the victim of a car-and-truck crash precipitated by Utah Highway Patrol’s provocation of a high-speed car chase with the loser of the hour on July 26.
Wubbels mild and plain-spoken heroism exposed her to a violent assault and unlawful detainment by an apparently intriguing police officer on July 26 apparently attempting to set up an evidentiary framework to prove that the victim of the car crash bore some or all liability for the injuries in the crash their recklessness precipitated.

Next time you’re stuck in a deadly long and boring conference call, just try to visualize it happening in real time and in real space.
The teabaggers caved.
We still have a government. (Mostly).
And somewhat of an economy. (Mostly).
And Ted Cruz is still a douche. (Abso-fucking-lutely)
And John Boehner is still a spineless drunk. (Oh hayell yes).
Carry on, America and world. Nothing to see here.
What’s the over/under on the teabaggers starting impeachment proceedings by MLK Day?
Universal gun-purchase background checks “failed” in the Senate today, 54 to 46.
That’s 54 votes in favor. In Constitutional terms, more than half. Which is also generally regarded as winning.
Except for, y’know, the “filibuster”. Which is defined as “some internal Senate rule that has nothing to do with Article I, Section 3, and can be easily dismissed at will.”
White House spokesbot Jay Carney was angry, but he promised the Administration wouldn’t quit: “We believe there is a path, a very difficult path, to get to 60 votes.” White House spokesbot Jay Carney did not mention that the “very difficult path” is only there because Harry Reid wimped out on getting rid of it.
