Repeat Tweets: Extrapolating US Politics to Middle East

Repeat tweets from August, 2014:

  • Aug 3 2014: Extrapolating US politics to the Middle East: Tea party/Hamas (fighting on at any cost) vs Dems/Israel (refusing to dismantle the state).
  • Aug 4 2014: MT @DaveLieber: "How a school board broke a zillion rules in five minutes." Which reminds me, when will RISD tape?
  • Aug 4 2014: Headline: "Rick Perry forms political action committee." Or as it might be called, a roll call for Rick, or you know:

After the jump, more repeat tweets.

  • Aug 5 2014: Headline: "Richardson Housing Market Experiencing Exceptional Growth" Maybe all those apts aren't killing Richardson.
  • Aug 6 2014: 63 Texas Republicans want to punish gays to stop crimes unrelated to sexual orientation. Or maybe just punish gays.
  • Aug 6 2014: "LWV Richardson to Host Public Meeting on Water Issues." Richardson Civic Center, Sep 10, 2014, 7 pm.
  • Aug 11 2014: Pete Session's biggest campaign donor is payday lender CashAmerica. See John Oliver's report on payday lenders.
  • Aug 12 2014: Headline: "State, regional officials respond to complaints about tolling 75 HOV lanes." Answer is STFU.
  • Aug 13 2014: Pina (2011): Recreated dances in tribute to choreographer. Visually stunning. For modern dance fans, a must-see. So naturally I give it a C-
  • Aug 13 2014: Headline: "People Are Learning More About SeaWorld’s Practices. That’s Why Its Stock Is Crashing." The power of film.
  • Aug 15 2014: MT @SenTedCruz: "The cause of the border crisis is Obama's amnesty." Don't forget Cruz's obstruction of comprehensive immigration reform.
  • Aug 16 2014: Paul Burka: "The GOP is verging on irrelevance." Odd thing to say about a party that controls every statewide office.
  • Aug 17 2014: What Perry did was wrong but not criminal. Society should have laws that take away his power to block criminal investigations of himself.
  • Aug 19 2014: The Grandmaster (2013): Kung-fu biopic. Chinese history, romance and stylized martial arts. Lush cinematography. Disjointed story. B-
  • Aug 20 2014: August: Osage County (2013): Dysfunctional family is an understatement. Like a Godzilla movie, but a family gets shattered, not a city. B-
  • Aug 22 2014: Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011): Master sushi chef. Tradition, dedication, honor, pride. See it if you like sushi. Even if you don't. B-
  • Aug 25 2014: Enough Said (2013): Divorced middle-agers try dating scene again and suck at it. Like the relationship, movie lacks energy. Enough said. C+
  • Aug 31 2014: Badgers have a lot of holes: QB, DB, punting, DL (if injuries are serious) and maybe coaching (where was Melvin Gordon in 2H?).
  • Aug 31 2014: Benjamin Franklin, by Walter Isaacson: You may think you know him. Read this and be amazed at the breadth and depth of this great American. B+
  • Aug 31 2014: Marley (2012): Life of reggae superstar and promoter of peace. Behind the scenes look at so much more than a musician. Died too young. B-
