Rep. Lauren Boebert Ripped For Not Understanding Basics Of The Constitution

If you’re a politician who has promised to uphold the Constitution, it might help if you’re actually familiar with what document includes.

Apparently, freshman Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) isn’t, based on a tweet she posted Friday morning.

Boebert’s tweet was sadly misinformed ― the Constitution was designed to change with changing times, hence the rules for adding amendments.

So after Boebert suggested that “protecting and defending the Constitution doesn’t mean trying to rewrite the parts you don’t like,” many Twitter users decided to give her the civics lesson she apparently missed in high school.

Some people thought she had a point in one respect.

Others were confused.

Others pointed out that Boebert’s alleged actions before and after the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection don’t suggest someone who really is interested in “protecting and defending the Constitution.”

One man pointed out the real irony of Boebert’s tweet: She is currently co-sponsoring a Constitutional amendment to limit the number of terms a person can serve in Congress.

HuffPost reached out to Boebert’s office, but no one immediately responded.

FM urges industry to unleash animal spirits, make India fastest growing economy

The expression ‘animal spirits’ was coined by celebrated economist John Maynard Keynes to refer to investors’ confidence in taking action in terms of investment.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on February 20 exhorted India Inc. to unleash animal spirits and bring in fresh investment to make India one of the fastest growing economies of the world.

Speaking to industry leaders at an All India Management Association (AIMA) event, she said the government has taken several steps including reduction in corporate tax rate to facilitate investment.

“I would like, now, to see private investors and private industry in India coming forward with that, so called animal spirits, to show that it is possible for India (to be) one of the fastest growing economies,” she said.

The expression ‘animal spirits’ was coined by celebrated economist John Maynard Keynes to refer to investors’ confidence in taking action in terms of investment.

“We need capacities to be ramped up, we need expansion, we need more production of very many such products, which are so required for the economy,” she said.

Post tax reduction, she said, “I have been waiting to see expansion happening. I’ve been waiting to see greater investments from private sector in India.” To revive growth, the government in September 2019 slashed corporate tax rate by almost 10 percentage points.

Petrol at ₹ 97/litre in Mumbai, diesel crosses ₹ 88-mark

The increase pushed the petrol price to ₹ 90.58 a litre in Delhi and diesel ₹ 80.97 a litre.

Petrol price on Saturday touched an all-time high of ₹ 97 per litre in Mumbai while diesel rate crossed ₹ 88 -mark.

Petrol price was hiked by record 39 paise per litre and diesel by 37 paise a litre, according to a price notification of state-owned fuel retailers.

This the 12th straight day of price hike and the largest daily increase since oil companies started to revise rates on a daily basis in 2017.

The increase pushed the petrol price to ₹ 90.58 a litre in Delhi and to ₹ 97 in Mumbai.

Diesel now comes for ₹ 80.97 a litre in the national capital and for ₹ 88.06 in Mumbai.

The increase follows a spurt in oil prices in the international market, on which India is dependent to meet its 85 % of the needs. Brent oil crossed $ 65 a barrel this week as a worsening U.S. energy crisis took out almost 40 % of the nation’s crude production.

In 12 days, retail petrol prices have risen by ₹ 3.63 a litre, a record since the pricing was deregulated in 2010, and diesel rates have gone up by ₹ 3.84.

Petrol price has already surged past the ₹ 100-mark in some places in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, which levy the highest VAT on the fuel.

Retail pump prices differ from state to state depending on the local taxes (VAT) and freight.

Fox News Host’s Bible Cancel Warning Gets The Treatment On Twitter

Fox News’ Bill Hemmer was mocked on social media Friday after he warned on the air that Bible characters could be next in line to be “canceled.”

“I tell you, if they start canceling these American presidents, they’re going to come after Bible characters next,” Hemmer said during a discussion on the review of historical statues in Chicago and so-called “cancel culture.”

“Mark my words, right?” Hemmer added.

Five statues of former President Abraham Lincoln are among the dozens of monuments being scrutinized as part of the Chicago city-wide review.

It’s unclear how tongue-in-cheek Hemmer was being with his comment.

But Twitter users pounced on the warning:
