you can talk them to death but racism dont mean sh#t to them because they got nothing against black people or indians

they just have good reason to despise people who wont get a job and support themselves like anybody can that merely takes a shower puts on clean cloths and walks out the door looking for one...

they dont recognize they priveleges they get in life and thus they dont understand the price others have to pay moving around

the doors that are shut where they dont even see doors

accepted infrastructures which impeads and denys a sizable percentage of the public without any of its systemic operators actually having a bad personal feeling about those its shaking down

More evidence of the obvious: Palin is scammin'...not runnin'.


JOE MILLER SUPPORTER: Ladies and gentlemen, Gov. Sarah Palin! *applause*
PALIN: Don’t you just feel so wonderful — let me just ask you first, Alaskans, don’t you just love your freedom?

October 28, 2010. That was the last time former Gov. Sarah Palin really inserted herself into Alaska politics. It was at a rally in Anchorage, and she was endorsing Republican candidate Joe Miller in the Senate race.

Now, fast forward three years.

HANNITY: Well there’s been talk you might run for senator in Alaska. Have you considered that at all?
PALIN: I’ve considered it because people have requested me considering it.

Palin made those comments on Tuesday during a radio show with her Fox News colleague, Sean Hannity. They come after months of speculation over whether she would be open to the possibility of running, and after a national Tea Party group launched a “Draft Sarah” effort. Republicans see Mark Begich in a vulnerable spot as a Democrat in a red state, and Palin’s fans believe she’s a strong contender because of her star power and ability to raise money.

But even though her statement is generating a lot of national buzz, party leadership in Alaska hasn’t heard a peep from her. Republican Party Chair Peter Goldberg says that there’s been no communication between him and Palin. Ever.

“I would think she would want to at least speak briefly to the new head of the Alaska Republican Party. But no, never met the lady. Never spoken to her. I have seen her once.”

That was at the state convention five years ago, and his table was about 30 feet from the podium where she was speaking.

“That’s the closest I’ve come to Sarah Palin.”

I hope she takes another "I'm not looking for publicity vacation" in a giant bus with her signature and the Constitution on the side.

You’re Allowed To Carry A Gun Into The Texas Senate Gallery, But Not A Tampon

By Tara Culp-Ressler on Jul 12, 2013 at 4:08 pm

On Friday afternoon, the Texas Senate will vote on a package of abortion restrictions that Republican lawmakers have been attempting to push through a special session. After State Sen. Wendy Davis (D-TX) successfully blocked a vote on the legislation last month with a 13-hour filibuster that was aided by disruptions from hundreds of protesters in the gallery, Senate Republicans aren’t taking any chances this time.
According to Jessica Luther, a freelance writer and pro-choice activist who has been coordinating much of the push-back to the proposed abortion restrictions over the past few weeks, Senate officials are confiscating any objects they believe may cause a similar disruption in the gallery during Friday’s vote. Protesters aren’t allowed to carry water bottles or even feminine hygiene products, just in case they might throw them at lawmakers:

Even though the Texas legislature may not be comfortable with feminine hygiene products, it’s a bit more relaxed when it comes to firearms. Individuals with concealed carry licenses are permitted to bring their guns into the Senate gallery. In fact, a Texas Republican recently insinuated he might do just that during the current special session.
In a recent interview with the National Review Online, state Rep. Jonathan Strickland (R) expressed concern over becoming the target of violence as thousands of angry pro-choice activists rally at the capitol. When asked whether those concerns would inspire him to carry a hidden gun this session, he said he couldn’t legally answer that question. But he did add, “I very, very often do concealed-carry, I can say that.”
Since activists aren’t allowed to carry tampons or pads on their person, they have asked supporters to send feminine products to the capitol building so they can stock the bathrooms for the women who may need them.

**Stupid Pansy Teabaglicans, afraid of a tampon.
Don't those fat old pasty white guys know that Tampons and Maxi pads make great emergency first aid bandaging for bullet wounds? Do Texas women need to get a "concealed Carry" permit for in-situ protection?**

From Guantanamo Bay to California's Pelican Bay, thousands of prisoners are on hunger strike, protesting intolerable living conditions, solitary confinement, and indefinite detention. As an architect and leader of Architects / Designers / Planners for Social Responsibility (ADPSR), it certainly got my attention when these prisoners said, in effect, that they'd rather die than go on living in these buildings.

Frankly, there are some buildings that never should have been built – buildings that constitute human rights violations by their very existence. The prisons at Guantanamo Bay are clear examples. From their inception, it should have been clear to everyone involved in the design and construction that the prisons were intended for activities that would violate prisoners' rights – why else would they be located in a remote area with water-only access, no local building industry, and excessively high construction costs if not for the legal fiction that Guantanamo is a constitution-free zone? It wasn't to take advantage of the tropical climate: the designs used were repeats of federal facilities from Indiana. The CIA's "black site" would be on the same list – that is, if anyone was allowed to know where all these "interrogation centers" are, what they all look like, or who designed them all.

Ohio tea party member flies Confederate flag during racist rant at school board meeting

By David Ferguson
Saturday, July 13, 2013 11:06 EDT

Springboro, Ohio residents are up in arms after a member of the local tea party unfurled a Confederate flag at a meeting of the town’s school board Thursday. According to Huffington Post, Sonny Thomas, who bills himself as the president and founder of the Springboro Tea Party was protesting the removal of a set of religiously-themed and ideologically slanted classes from the district’s summer curriculum.

Thomas, who has a history of racist and inflammatory statements, reportedly gave an impassioned defense of the classes, which were intended for parents and children. The summer courses were sponsored by the Institute of the Constitution, an offshoot group from right-wing think tank The American View and the National Center for Constitutional Studies, a religious-themed nationalist group funded by the Church of Latter Day Saints.

In his speech, Thomas made racist remarks, invoked neo-Confederate group The League of the South and displayed the Confederate flag, saying that African-Americans in the U.S. “should consider themselves lucky since they are treated better in the United States than they would be if they were in ‘Black Countries’ with ‘genocide,’” according to Springboro resident Nimisha Patel.

Patel also noted the school board members showed unusual deference to Thomas, allowing his remarks to run over his allotted time slot. They also allowed him to stay for the rest of the meeting, whereas other speakers who the board deemed problematic were escorted from the premises.

School board Vice President Jim Rigano defended the propaganda classes in a statement earlier this year, writing, “We felt that having the community participate with evaluating these courses would be an excellent opportunity for schools and community to work together. Instead, the courses have received some criticism from the community, which we take very seriously.”

The courses came under fire in June, when the Ohio ACLU announced that it was investigating the program in the context of an overall plan by the school board to inject religious instruction into public school curricula.

Cranks will be cranks, but what I found disturbing is that the board actually listened to him.

I frequently work with a board that has a crank show up at all meetings and uses the public discussion forum to air his conspiracies and anger and hurl insults at the board. After his 3 minute speaking time is up, he is told to sit down, and none of the board members actually take him seriously, or listen to him anymore.

It's all part of the race to the bottom
You wouldn't want to pay an extra 25 cents for a hamburger now would you.

And we have to reward the rich by paying low wages. How else will they afford their expensive financial gurus that tell them to put their millions offshore so they don't have to pay taxes either.

These Republicans have turned this country into Walmart.
The only problem are those pesky foodstamps that are keeping those lazy bastards alive, if they would just die off, then they could find some new blood to exploit.

I've lost my faith that things will ever turn around.
Oh wait, I never had any faith to lose, so I'm guess I'm good then.
