Happy Thursday.

Newt Gingrich unloaded on Fox News yesterday, saying the most-watched cable news channel was biased in favor of Romney. Says Gingrich, “there’s no question that Fox had a lot to do with stopping my campaign because such a high percentage of our base watches FOX.” He also had not-very-nice things to say about George Will.

Charles Manson was denied parole for the 12th time, to the surprise of nobody. In the past three years, he was caught in possession of a weapon and contraband cell phones. Also, there's that whole continued threats of bodily harm thing.

Democrats just thoroughly shot themselves in the foot by criticizing Ann Romney for being a stay-at-home mother. Also, welcome to Twitter, Mrs. Romney.

3 Good Morning Morons. Today is Thursday, April 12, 2012. On this day in 1934 the strongest surface wind speed ever recorded by man is noted at Mount Washington, NH at 231 mph. Folks this is a good place to stay away from in the Winter.

I'll bet they already have a chart made up for their weekly/monthly announcements right up to November 3rd. Too bad they are all lying worthless propaganda.

13 More evidence of why Section V of the VRA is unconstitutional and why out current DOJ is corrupt. Prince William county VA has now been released from its "punishment" under Section V of the VRA. Why? Because they are now a minority majority district and it would be "unfair" for them to comply with Section V and pre-clear everything with the DOJ. Section V of the VRA was supposed to expire after a few years. The last time it was renewed they did it for 25 years and Republicans voted FOR this POS. Such is the power of racial politics that even this POS which is no longer about race, but about being a whipping tool for the Democratic party is kept in place.

17 I loved the "please know that I admire you" line from Rosen. Why? Because she's willing to talk publicly about being a victim, in this case of illness. The highest aspiration for these people is to be a victim. Amazing, and completely insincere at the same time.

The Obama campaign is becoming unhinged. (Yeah, I know she doesn't work for them, but she will be identified with them.)

As to Newt, if your biggest enemy is Fox News, you weren't going to win anyway.

Been in hibernation for the past four years, Vic?

The stuttering clusterfuck of a miserable traitor and Komrade Klinton have been fluffing terrorists and violating U.S. law almost non-stop since January, 2009.

It seems stupid to say "If Bush (or the other Bush,or Reagan, or you-name-it) was president, he'd get his ass handed to him," but the power of President Historic First's© get-out-of-jail-free card has given him a stunning amount of dictatorial power to accomplish his agenda, and there's not one Republican with the nads to stand up to him. Not one.

But you know all this. I wish the 52% would wake up before they're herded into the slaughter pen with the rest of us.

21 Folks this is a good place to stay away from in the Winter.

I visited the mount years ago during the week of the Fourth of July -- you can drive a car to the top, conditions permitting. It was 70 degrees at the bottom and a snow shower at the summit.

Fantastic view of a couple of states when the snow stopped. Apparently the station is manned 24/7 365 days a year to record the weather global warming.

29 You know what really annoys me about this Zimmerman arrest? It's not the gloating from the race baiters and their willing sycophants, it's the fact that I'm still sitting here with the assumption that Zimmerman can and will get a fair trial, in spite of everything.

It annoys me because one side is playing on emotion, and I'm trying to apply logic and reason. It's a slower process, but eventually if reason indicates that the other side won't adhere to the rule of law, then violence becomes the answer.

30 21 Mt Washington also had a NAWAS point and a StratCom installation. My job involved going up there once a quarter to do training, etc. Some of the winter trips up there would have made a halfway decent movie. When the wind hit you as you walked between buildings it felt like a cold knife.

How much time to pack 5 lunches for school and how much for 25 lunches a week?

"Like I said, I don't shop and I don't pack lunches. I'm too busy being an expert on economic stuff."

39 Hilary Rosen on Obama's Kinetic Action Against Women:

Ann Romney "never worked a day in her life."

Hilary Rosen, do you manage your own expenses within budget, clean your own house, cook your own meals, do your
own grocery shopping and laundry, raise your own children without hired
help? Ms. Rosen, name the charity organizations to which you regularly devote your own time and effort pro bono and without tax benefit.

Feminazi Spokesperson Hilary overstated her criticism, and missed the target entirely by just that much, hence discrediting the more accurate (final swipe) criticism of Mitt being perceived as old fashioned by "working" women. (Clue: he is.)

And on "old fashioned" as entirely outmoded so without value these days, as disgusting as a patriarchal overlord is regarding equal standing in a partnership, Hilary Rosen just told every stay at home mom, regardless of economic status, including the very indigent or financially challenged mothers (old fashion term for women who've born children) whom Hilary presumes herself the Spokesperson to STFU because the Democrats want you to stay barefoot (pregnant) in the kitchen. Ironic, huh. Democrats deny working women the very benefits Democrats promise.

Hm, broken promises = bad marriage.

Republicans could make a good ad from the "fair shake" angle if there's a record to promote.

Thank you, Rosen, for blowing your "war of words" from the onset. Womens Liberation movt. was always about promoting the elitist few communist females careers at the expense of the entire gender, dismissed without grounds as nonentities only good for a vote. Remember '08 Michelle Obama telling her audience of "working" black women to remember their place and forget about improving their lot in life through higher education.

Anything for profit. Anything for power. On ratings, the onus is on the American audience promoting self destruction.

Where are the intrepid Members of Congress countering this administrations AUDACITY OF RACISM, regardless of pigment? Scared of their own shadows. No one is throwing AG Holder accountable for his own flame war incinerating rule of law.

Executive Branch has Precedence: JEdgarHoover, FBI "neutralize" the Black Panther movement of terrorism. From the judicial branch, the SCOTUS never determined that policy to be unconstitutional.

The arrest of GZ is a blatant attempt at a distraction by this administration to deflect away from the horrible economy. It's also a great excuse to start a race war, as evidenced by the language coming from the NBPP, which no one in a position of responsibility wants to touch, even though they've violated a number of state and federal laws by issuing a "Dead or Alive" bounty on GZ. Does anyone else find it strange that the city of Sanford, Seminole county and the State's prosecutors' officeshaven't charged GZ with anything for over a month?

Then Eric Holder rubs the nation's nose in it by praising Al Not-So-Sharpton yesterday. If I didn't know any better, I'd say we're seeing a race war created by the White House as a reason to impose that shiney, new EO that the SCOAMF signed a couple of weeks ago.

And I'm not saying I know any better. This whole situation is beginning to smell like the Chicago Way. We're being set up for a revolution.

All too true. Yet another reason for much wider application of the death penalty. And I'd go one step further - anybody who's caught fawning over murdering psychopaths should be considered an accomplice and hanged right along side him.
If it were up to me there would be less push for early parole, becausethe jails would haveplenty of room. All the rapists (including those who rape others in prison), murderers, kidnappers, terrorists, armed robbers, gangbangers,and corrupt politicians would be dragged from their cells, one at a time, and shot.Thebodies would burn in a great, kerosene-soakedpyre,a fire fed and tended by the other prisoners who would thereby receivea useful object lesson.

Ex: The business of allowing the dismissal of the Constitutional Requirement of every POTUS candidate to be a natural born citizen, because people feared whatever in defense of that premise of eligibility, did not simply abandon that premise, but provided precedence to never regard loyalty to America and the US Constitution again when promoting any presidential candidate. Consider the outcome: the dissolution of all Constitutional Governance resulting from that refusal to hold firm to the integrity of POTUS constitutional eligibility. A hill NOT worth fighting to defend? /Sure, morons pile on the "birther" shit in futile self defense posture as if we're not all drowning because of THAT permissive PC flood destroying rule of law and every American's Constitutional Liberties. Watch the authoritarians take MORE charge of "the fix".

85 Hilary Rosen was acting according to direction of the Obama campaign. The evidence for this is two-fold:

1. Messina and Axelrod were on Twitter within half an hour saying she should apologize. You can't tell me they weren't hoping her comment would have the opposite effect that it did.

2. I have a friend who knows someone in the Chicago offices of the Obama campaign. The big comment from there was that "Ann Romney hasn't had to work like most women."

3. The firm that Rosen works for is Anita Dunn's, who justcoincidentall also represent Sandra Fluke.

What was very impressive was the Romney campaign's rapid response, including getting Ann on with a Twitter account.

He was originally sentenced to death but the sentence was commuted to life after the stupid CA Supreme Court vacated the death penalty (it has been reinstated now).
IIRC they had a choice of making it w/o parole or normal life and they made it normal life. But the board is still not going to parole him ever.

They refused to parole the other scrunt even when she was dieing of cancer so they are not going to parole him.

--------------------

Indeed. Though for me, the cost (while abhorent) is a bit secondary. The core principle of justice has got to be a balancing of the scales. While we are not to carry out eye-for-an-eye justice as private citizens, it is the only reasonable form the justice system, administered by the state, can take. The only way to pay for a life wrongly taken is with a life. And intent has to matter as well - if you TRY to take life, but fail, your incompetence or bad luck should not excuse you from the penalty your success would have earned.


I should be able togo about my life withoutdealing out privatejustice, because theapparatus of the state shoulddo that for me.But now that doesn't happen like it is supposed to. Now it's all about excusing crime, or trying to justify it, or saying "Oh that poor disadvantaged person!"And no matter what the libtards claim, that is not true compassion. Once "mercy" is the norm, it is no longer mercy.

I'll bet that usually works, unfortunately. "I've reformed!" they say. Of course, the stats bear out that hardly anyone is reformed by prison after they've crossed a certain line.
Personally, I think long term imprisonment is folly anyway. It's crime college. If it were me, every serious crime would get one of the following: Death (by hanging or firing squad), public corporal punishment (the lash, the stocks, etc), or a fine of triple the $ stolen/defrauded(or if destitute, indentured servitude). Sometimes there might be a combo. What more do we really need?

115 I used to think that Democrats were honesty pursuing the vision they thought best for the county. That vision (an autocracy with them in charge) was radically different than what I believe in, but I thought they were deluded enough to believe things really would be better.

Then I got a job, and, instead, I knew that they were not "honestly pursuing" their vision- but doing so dishonestly. I still believed that they (as a rule, with some exceptions for those at the tippy-top) were at least honest as regarded their goal.

Now I understand better. They're evil. They've been taking the same tactic as the Serpent in the Garden. They promise "freedom" and "fairness" and "enlightenment," but all you get (if you believe them) are ignorance, and patronage, and slavery. Whatever they believe their goal is does not matter, for they choose evil means to realize it. No matter how noble their goal may once have been (I don't believe it was ever very noble), it is now sullied and tarnished by the evil of their actions.

The attack on Anne Romney is just one more example. I can tell you, as a direct observer, my wife works at least twice as hard as a stay-at-home mom as she ever did at "a real job." And, with all due respect to the working moms out there, working moms don't rear their children- the schools or day-care centers do. I know that, also, from direct observation- and from the most heart-breaking moment I ever had one morning taking my kids to day-care (before my wife could stay at home) when I realized that my daughter thought of her day-care as "home," and our house was just where she slept.

More evidence of why Section V of the VRA is unconstitutional and why
out current DOJ is corrupt. Prince William county VA has now been
released from its "punishment" under Section V of the VRA. Why? Because
they are now a minority majority district and it would be "unfair" for
them to comply with Section V and pre-clear everything with the DOJ.
Section V of the VRA was supposed to expire after a few years. The last
time it was renewed they did it for 25 years and Republicans voted FOR
this POS. Such is the power of racial politics that even this POS which
is no longer about race, but about being a whipping tool for the

Things were very neck and neck until the very wee hours around 4 when a couple of the heavily black precincts came in after everyone else with just enough votes to win. Holder has "released" Prince William Co. because he had his mechanism in place for future Derrick Bell theory compliant voter fraud. It's not that Prince William itself matters, it's that it is part of the district drawn so that the congressional district is competitive. Not anymore.

"I know the media will do their best to twist the events of the trial to suit the narrative, perhaps some sunlight will shine through."

The MFM has distorted this story with abandon since day one, beginning with the publication of an old pic of TM as an innocent child, not the thug he looked like at age 17. The very next thing they did was mistakenly portray GZ as white when he's clearly Hispanic.

Since this is happening right up the road from me, I'll share one little tidbit that the media continues to ignore. The son of the Sanford police chief assaulted a black man one night a few months ago, right in front of the little bar whereI once regularly played. Just walked right up to the guy and coldcocked him for no reason: there was no confrontation, no words exchanged or anything. This was captured on video by a friend of mine who was at the bar when it happened.

This was an outrage, albeit a small one that didn't receive much attention. Most of the folk I know wanted the PC's son behind bars, regardless of their color. A couple of rallies were held and many in the Sanford area denounced the attack, among them was GZ. He also has mentored many disadvantaged children of color in the area for years.

But did you notice the Idiot Bloomberg mention any of this in his presser? Nope. All we heard was that GZ was a "violent man with a criminal history."

This shit is being concocted just as surely as the sun rose this morning. On purpose.

128 Also, after further consideration, I think the George Zimmerman charges may be the best thing that could happen with that situation.

If the Special Prosecutor decided not to charge him, all the evidence would not come out, and the professional Racial Grievance Lobby would scream "RAAAAACISM!" and "CONSPIRACY!" forever. Now, on the presumption that a fair trial can actually be had, at least, all the evidence will come out. Based on what information is currently available, it looks like he should be acquitted of everything beyond littering, and go free.

Then, while it won't stop them from trying, the RGL won't actually have anything to scream about.

Of course, that presumes a fair trial is possible, which is certainly an open question.

If GZ is found guilty, the race baiters will take it as vindication and proof that "white folk be murderin' black folk forthe crime of being born black" all over this country.

If GZ is found not guilty, the race baiters will take it as proof that the legal system is biased against black victims of crime and that the white patriarchal establishment set up the case to ensure that GZ wouldn't have to pay for his crimes.

It's Critical Race Theory writ large.

142 Jury selection for Zimmerman should be interesting.

If it's even possible.

They're going to have to move it as far away from Sanford as possible. Maybe up in the Panhandle he'll be able to get a fair trial, but even that's suspect. After the hatchet job the MFM has done on him (with the documentation to prove it) it almost doesn't matter where, in FL, he has his trial, his attorney should have good grounds to appeal on "unbiased jury" standards if he does get convicted.

Posted by: lowandslow at April 12, 2012 07:39 AM (GZitp)

I can't speak for everyone but this is certainly true in my sphere of observation. I am a stay-at-home mom and let me tell you it's hard frigging work. Between taking care of- and soon-to-be educating because we're home schooling next year- my kids and keeping up with the house, yard, etc., I absolutely work harder than I ever did at any job I've ever had.

I understand why some moms decide to go back to work. But honestly, in my own circumstances and in those of a lot of the women I know, working and not, the difference in money with me working outside my home versus just staying home was minimal because you have to pay for the day-care, after school care, and extra gas for all the traveling. In my own situation it was a wash unless I could have found something making almost twice what I made before which was not likely at all.

Most of the moms I personally know who went back to work did so because they felt that if they weren't contributing financially, even though it ultimately ends up not making one bit of monetary difference in the budget, they were worthless. Add in the pressure for women to have these great careers and the overt disdain you get from a good chunk of working women and you're almost shamed into going back to work.

I know that's not necessarily representative of everyone, but that's been my experience and that of the ladies I know.

Wow. Yet another bit of anecdotal evidence supporting my theory that women are their own worst enemies. Working when it makes almost no financial difference is beyond absurd. It's self destructive madness. And when are women going to learn that other women are simply emotional predators? They feed on the denigration of other women. It's the only way some of them have to feel good. Thus, they try to lord their feminist-conformant choices over others. Sickening.

183 (CNBC) - New U.S. claims for unemployment
benefits rose last week to their highest level since January, a development that
could raise fears the labor market recovery was stalling after job creation
slowed in March.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 13,000 to a seasonally adjusted 380,000, the Labor Department
said on Thursday. The prior week's figure was revised up to 367,000 from the
previously reported 357,000.
Economists polled by Reuters had
forecast claims falling to 355,000 last week.
The four-week moving average for
new claims, considered a better measure of labor market trends, rose 4,250 to
368,500.

194 #129 Once you get an account, pick people you want to follow. I started with a few political candidate accounts, some bloggers, and some reporters and columnists.

Read for a while, and see what they say. You don't HAVE to comment, but if you can think of a good question or comment, you can reply to that person directly. I have found Rick Klein of ABC and Mark Knoller of CBS to be willing to answer questions or entertain comments from the right (of course you need to do this civilly). Some people are more thin-skinned and do not take disagreement well, in which case you will be blocked. I have been blocked by both Jake Tapper and Dana Loesch, proving that thin-skinnedness knows no political leaning.

If you get on Twitter and comment, you will pick up followers. If you follow me and remind me, I will give people your name to follow. Once you have followers, when you re-tweet something you read (there is a button for that) you will make sure all of your followers read it too.

For example, I do not follow Axelrod or Messina, but several pundits do and re-tweeted their comments last night, which is how I knew that they were attempting damage control.

There is a more extensive list of twitter commands which I am not that good at, but you can use them if you get really involved.

It takes staying with it and reading and following. It is an excellent snapshot of what people are talking about in politics. I usually am on it in the morning and then in the evening. CAUTION: Some people get addicted and are on it all day. Don't fall into that trap! LOL!

206 Zimmerman is toast.
With an R president who insisted on federal charges in the Rodney King case, the "obviously racist" cops who beat him were convicted to appease the masses.

The Sgt. in charge at the scene was such a Klansmen that he had been disciplined for violating department policy in order to give mouth to mouth to a black tranny known to have the aids virus. Said tranny collapsed in the police station in front of him and the Sgt. refused to wait until a dental dam was found before initiating life saving mouth to mouth.

If Ann Romney had multiple abortions, she would be a hero to the Marxists. The attack on her wanting to raise kids is one of the vilest I have seen. I will not be voting foir Romney nor Obama, but they should leave his family alone.

Ann Romney is a great mother and she should be applauded.

Republicans use the illegal immigration issue to bash Latinos. The reality is, there no illegals coming from Mexico anymore, their economy is booming. That reality doesn't fit the Republican narrative of evil brown people taking virgin white people's land. If the illegals were from Europe, Republcians would demand amnesty.

I'm not so sure. If the trial drags on for months, or something... well, you can only keep the pot simmering for just so long, really. I think it will calm down before that.

We talk about the Rodney King, thing, but that really couldn't happen (at least, not to the same extent) today. Look at NBC having to backtrack (pretty quickly, too) with their deceptive 9-1-1 edit. Or ABC and their "enhanced video."

If the trial is over quickly and they acquit, I agree with you- we'll have riots. If it takes a long time, I don't think so. There may be some protests, and I'm sure Jessie and Al will try to gin up some riots, but I just don't see it.

Progressives/communists/marxists/liberals (birm) would just start fresh on a new conquest to overtake what's left of us.

You do know that immigration from Latin America, both legal and illegal is practically zero. The economies are booming down there, so they have no need to come. The fastest rising group of illegals are Asians and I don't hear Republicans saying crap about it.

I don't support illegal immigration nor am I for amnesty. I don't like the Republican Party's attacks on the Latino community as a whole. I am Italian-Brazilian and the and have Mexican and Puerto Rican relatives. My wife is Argentinian Jewish, so this is personal for me.

348 Did you folks see this? In an interview,Trayvon's mother says she thinks it was an accident:


Asked what she would like to ask to Zimmerman, Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton, said on The Today Show that she wants an apology from him.


"I believe it was an accident. I believe it just got out of control and he couldn't turn the clock back," Fulton said, revealing her opinion about what happened the night her 17-year-old son was shot to death. "I would ask him, did he know that that was a minor, that that was a teenager and that he did not have a weapon."

Fulton said even if Zimmerman is found not guilty, the arrest achieves the goal of their campaign to raise awareness and bring him to justice.

"We just want him to be held accountable for what he done," Fulton said. "We are happy that he was arrested so that he can give his side of the story."

You'll never be able to speak from experience on motherhood because no man will ever love you. Fat, stupid and frigid is not a winning combination for catching a man.

375 (Chicago Tribune) - Homicides in Chicago soared by 60 percent in the first three months of
2012, continuing a troublesome trend that began late last year. Nonfatal
shootings also rose sharply in the first quarter, Police Department
statistics show.

The worsening violence comes as the Emanuel
administration touts its efforts to combat gang crime and add officers
and resources to some of the city's most dangerous neighborhoods.

Chicago police blame street gangs for much of the violence. Another
contributing factor for the rise in homicides was the unseasonably warm
weather this past winter
, according to criminologists, but Chicago
police Superintendent Garry McCarthy scoffed at that explanation earlier this year.


"In better weather, people are outside more, interacting more with
neighbors, acquaintances, even strangers, and there's greater
opportunity for conflict than when it's cold and windy," said James Alan
Fox, a professor of criminology, law and public policy at Northeastern
University in Boston.

Curious,

You'll never be able to speak from experience on
motherhood because no man will ever love you. Fat, stupid and frigid is
not a winning combination for catching a man.

Add your
pathological lying to the mix and it's easy to see why you will spend
the rest of your life pretending your cats love you. Because they can't
speak.

But they hate you, too.

388 'Hispanic" was not listed in the categories of races you could select in Census 2000 or Census 2010. The next-to-last question asked if you were Hispanic or not, and if 'yes' you got a list to pick from


The last question asked your race, and 'Hispanic' was not included. You could pick 'mullti-racial' in 2000 and 2010


"Hispanic' was only a choice for race in 1970, 1980, and 1990.

What the fuck does that matter if you think your life is in danger? If I had a twelve year old beating my head into the pavement, I wouldn't stop to think, "Hey, this is just a kid who's trying to clobber my melon into the concrete. I shouldn't overreact."

and that he did not have a weapon."

The sidewalk was a weapon. If he went for GZ's gun, THAT would be a weapon. The presence of a physical object classified in daily parlance as "a weapon" is not necessary for a person to appropriately exercise self-defense.
The fact of the matter is, we still don't know what happened.

367 Still stuck on "White Hispanic", eh? Well, the answer is the term, as used by the media, is both right and wrong - according to Uncle Sam. In the most recent Census, "Hispanic" was not a race, but the subject of a separate question. Therefore, Z is "White Hispanic" because he is both, but is not in terms of being half-and-half.
Posted by: Gerry at April 12, 2012 09:52 AM (8YpyD)


This. Federal race categories classify "Hispanic" as a separate ethnicity. If you label yourself as "white" but your ethnicity as "hispanic," you are only counted as a hispanic, not a white person. Likewise if you label yourself black, asian, Pacific Islander, etc, with hispanic ethnicity.

417 NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Royal Dutch Shell says a sheen of oil, 10 square miles in size, has been spotted in the Gulf of Mexico.Shell said late Wednesday that it reported the sheen to the National Response Center.

The sheen is one mile wide and ten miles long and is located in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, between the Mars and Ursa drilling platforms, said Shell. The platforms are both located 130 miles southeast of New Orleans.

The oil company also said there is "no current indication that the sheen originates from wells in either the Mars or Ursa projects."

The company said it activated the Louisiana Responder, an oil spill response vessel that has skimming and boom capabilities.

445 Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that strong evidence of a gender-based support disparity between Republicans and Democrats makes her feel "better" about the chances for Democrats to retake the House in November.

Pelosi ranked the chances as better than 50-50.

"I've always felt good about it," she said Wednesday in San Francisco, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "But now I feel better."

The war between President Obama and Mitt Romney over female voters intensified this week, with Romney asserting that 92 percent of the jobs lost under Obama were women's jobs, and Obama and the Democratic National Committee firing back that Romney's campaign couldn't even answer whether he supported a major piece of equal-pay legislation.

"I would have said, two months ago, we had a 50-50 chance of winning the House," Pelosi said.

"You've already seen me in action so you know what kind of spend-thrift bitch I already am," Pelosi said.

------------

Interesting. Usually, when the ethnicity box comes up on employment forms, it gives the option of "Hispanic" or "White, not Hispanic." But when I applied for my current job, it asked "Do you have any ancestry from Mexico, Cuba, Guatemala, Venezuela..." and went on to list Latin American countries. I remembered my Great Grandmother had lived in Cuba after the Spanish-American War, so I checked "Yes."

And, I got the job.

Yeah, it managed to insinuate that converts are apparently not actually Catholic and that they don't really know the faith. And it's insulted moms on a regular basis, anyone who does their own home repairs and/or improvements, secretaries, oh and if you don't live in NYC you couldn't possibly be worthy of having any opinions and/or feelings about 9/11 or anything else for that matter because NY is apparently the only zip code on earth in which your opinions matter.

And I happen to fall into quite a few of thoe categories, so yeah. What is the most annoying, as a mostly-lurking and occasional commenter here, is that as soon as it sees people having nice productive conversations it simply *must* come out and shit all over the thread. I have no idea why it isn't banned yet.

Hey, curious, even the lurkers fucking hate you here. Piss off already.

"I believe Alabama is part of Caucasia. Then again, it seems that Peru is too."

Heh. My mother (who was really, really bigoted) was doing some genealogy research on her side of the family and came home white as a sheet one day from the library, and seemed visibly distraught.

She had found a black in her line (which makes it my line too). She wasn't too appreciative of my laughter. Even explaining the freed-slave aspect didn't calm her down.

There was no new information. She didn't answer any questsions about evidence, which I guess is to her credit. It's about the only thing that is. I expected a lot more from Angela Corey than the Cheshire-cat-shit-eating grin she wore while talking up those "sweet" parents and revealing how she prays with the Martin family. What a pile of bullshit. I couldn't help but cynically wonder of she had to pay royalties out to the Martin family every time she used the phrase "Justice for
Trayvon," since that's one of the things they copyrighted.

Corey has a sterling reputation in Jacksonville and most folks up there live her, my family included. A lot of those same people are very upset at her demeanor last night.

532 Off the top of my head, I can think of several defenses for Zimmerman:

1) 5th amendment angle, go after that "infamous" line and the lack of a Grand Jury

2) Attack the prosecutor as biased, using her "pray with the family" line against her

3) Attack the prosecution as racially motivated, using the NBP bounty as an example

4) Attack the prosecutor for selective prosecution, since no one has arrested anyone in the NBP

5) Attack the weakness of the case, 2nd degree murder implies intent, best you could have gotten a conviction on is Manslaughter

6) Let the facts speak for themselves, this doesn't rise above reasonable doubt

I think this prosecution is really just a sham. She knows she can't win, but it opens the door for a civil wrongful death suit once she loses. Just like OJ.

CBD is fine (I know it's awful, but...).

The topic is fascinating for me because of the huge change in the technology of health care. No other part of life has changed nearly so radically, with such tremendous implications for religion.

I had a fascinating discussion with the head of the medical ethics panel at Columbia Medical School. It was focused on the ethics of torture according to Jewish law, but rapidly moved into organ transplantation.

545 really disgusted on the attack of Mrs Romney re staying home to take care of the children.
so i suppose one is not allowed to choose their own lifestyle that fits for them. sometimes even the man might make a better dad/mom
i understand the jealousy and angst some might have that they cannot stay home because finances are very harsh in their particular situation, and some of us stay home to try to keep our children on track.
i understand some women not having a feeling of self worth by staying home with the tykes. it can be a thankless job, haha
i had to work at times throughout the childrens growing years at times i felt i let them down by not being their to kiss them when they hurt. and being exhausted all the time i didn't give my best.
whichever situation chosen or out of necessity being a mom or wife is hard work, it belittles mothers to assume either way is the ONLY correct way.
written to my Mom whom i loved with all my heart, she worked like crazy out of necessity and died at 50.
moms are the best and dads are awesome too!

Fuck off, Shockwave. Hispania was the term for the Iberian peninsula back when the Romans counted it as a fricking colony. Yes, it is now "Espana." Spanish are Spaniards, not Hispaniards or Espaniards. Portuguese are Portuguese, not Hispanic. Maybe over in Europe they can pull it off, but over here the meaning is completely different. It is deceptive to claim otherwise.

A Jesuit, A Franciscan and a Benedictine were arguing over whether God

in the Wailing wall, asking God who he loves best. A few days later the
rabbi retrieves the note and hands it to the three men. They open it and
read:

I love all of you you equally.

565 SAN FRANCISCO —
San Francisco Police were looking for a woman Wednesday who sent a man to the emergency room after hitting him in the head with a stiletto heel early Sunday morning.
According to GrubStreet.com, Matt Meidinger, the general manager at Jasper's Corner Tap Kitchen, was leaving the Balboa Café Saturday night after drinking with some friends when he witnessed a fight breaking out between two men.
While attempting to intervene, a woman associated with one of the fighters hit him in the head with one of her high-heeled shoes.
“Blood immediately started pouring down the left side of my face so I pulled out my phone and called the police,” Meidinger wrote in an email to GrubStreet.com.
Police said that Meidinger was cut pretty badly and taken to the hospital. Later, he posted a picture someone had taken of his alleged attacker to Twitter, offering $500 for information.
Meidinger’s story found traction online and within days, officers had identified the woman. If and when police take her into custody, she could be charged with aggravated assault, as police consider high-heeled stiletto shoes to be weapons.

566 Spaniards are Hispanic, they started the damn culture. Educate yourself. *

Which culture did they "start"?

The Mexican culture, or the Peruvian culture, the Cuban culture, or the Puerto Rican...

Hispanics in the US were just polled as to how they would like to be designated. They answered that they wanted to be identified by their country of origin, not by the generic term Hispanic.

And if you embrace that term you are celebrating the oppression of the European conquistadores. Why don't you call yourself the designation of your indigenous ancestors? Stop being a slave to The Man.

West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Mike Cazes told The Advocate his office got the call about the alligator around 4 p.m. Wednesday in Port Allen.

Matt Marszal, the motel's front desk clerk, said the gator bit one of the motel guests who tried to catch it before Animal Control workers showed up.

Marszal said the man was taken to the hospital. Once Animal Control workers arrived, he said the gator was subdued within 5 minutes.

Indeed interesting dicussions. My Jewish Knowledge is very sparse, I know a tad bit of Conservatism and a smattering of Orthodox from studying my cross religion work. I wouldn't stake anything on it, at best it's trivia.
Organ transplantation is really interesting. Especially looking over the religious history of it. I forget when exactly the Catholic church began to shift from it's concern over living organ donation violating the body to the duty to rescue. There's an old article called "From Agape to Organ donation" that traces this (as well as eastern religion views towards the body.)
I'm supposed to be working with a regional transplant center to launch a blog about organ transplantation (secular focus.) I was to draw on my long history in the interwebs (I've moderated at least 1 largish forum, and obviouslly hang around the Wild Wild West.), sadly I had been hanging out hear to much and was a little over worried about trolls so when I tried to stress the importance of good moderators I oversold and they locked it down so tight it basically went belly up week 2.

Not really. His column is mostly about her lie/assertion that Dems hadn't started the "war on women" meme.

All he does in terms of "defending" her was say the context of her statement and opine that it was leveled at Mitt more than at stay-at-home moms, per se. And he points out that the WH and O campaign have called for Rosen to apologize.

I think it's understandable given that he appears on CNN and, I gather, was on the show with Rosen when she made the comments. To me it's just SOP being 'fair' to someone you have to deal with professionally.

603 #584 Yes, I just witnessed that for the first time. I was checking in to Twitter for a completely unrelated issue and saw all these tweets from conservatives that I follow. Withinminutes the whole place was a madhouse. It's really amazing to watch a controversy like this explode in real time, late at night after all the TV news shows are done and most people are going to bed. I was really pleased to see the conservatives opening a can on Rosen and all the liberals, and the Ann Romney herself shows up and BAM! Anyone who thinks the Republicans are bringing a knife to a gunfight in this election are wrong.

I think it must be a bitch for political operatives though. They must have some flunkies that do nothing but watch Twitter 24/7 so they can respond when shit happens. They can't take a night off or ever think "my day is over, I am having a drink and going to bed."

Jewish law is all over the place. Many orthodox do not think that donation is legal because it violates the sanctity of the body (as does autopsy).

But there is a Jewish concept called "Pikuach Nefesh," which states that the preservation of human life overrides all other considerations.

One should set aside the Torah to preserve life. The highest Jewish law according to some. Mitzvahs and all that I suppose. One of my other professors (Orthodox Catholic, which is wildly different from Roman Catholic) likes to comment that the RC notion of sin is far to "Juridical" (legalish). I usually snap back that we get that from our Jewish roots, meaning we hold closer to the Judeo part of the Judeo-Chrisitan heritage. Fascinating cultural histories and all that. (Is this a blog where I have to point out I'm not being a bigot/racist/other in fact this is a mere observation? Or is this a blog where I'm taken at my word and not beat up? I forget.)

634 #610 My father was raised Orthodox and always told me that Jews do not believe in organ donations or autopsies, or embalmment. It goes back to the Biblical passage that says "from dust I have made you and to dust you shall return." When the body dies it is supposed to be buried immediately and untouched, in a plain wooden box. When my father died we had a big hassle with the cemetery, because Florida law requires concrete vaults around all graves but he insisted that his body be allowed to return to dust. We solved it by having them build an extra large vault and filling it with dirt.

He's probably banging her because she has more fur on her body than he does, and it makes him feel vaguely human.

Technically most lying falls into the category of venial sin, unless it meets the criteria for mortal sin, which I would argue that curious's bullshit regularly meets that criteria. She fails on both intention and moral object since her lying is regularly done intentionally to distort the reputation of whoever it is that's her target. That is contrary to the love of God and neighbor and thus makes it mortal.

Not to be cruel but:
Then he wasn't actually brain dead. "Brain death" is a horribly misused term.Misusedby people in the profession too!To be "Brain Dead" legally (and for the purposes of organ donation)you have to have no activity in your brain including the brain stem. The brain stem controls breathing, so if it's gone, there's no resperation (there may be some residual heart beating for a few minutes because that sucker can keep going even after you take it out of the body.)
To many people use it to refer to "Higher Brain death" which is everything but the brain stem (so you'll still breath but your basically gone.) That's not dead, and they can't take organs.

Should one eat non-Kosher food if one is starving? Some say no...some say of course, but prepare it as if it were Kosher (I like that answer).

674 655 My only issue with organ donation is using brain death to allow donation from living donors.
----------
So the U of Utah (iirc) is advertising right now on local tv, asking people to be live organ donors. They use as their example someone who donated their "extra" kidney that she "did not need."

I think it's the height of irresponsibility to do mass advertising for that. I can imagine specific situations, mostly involving family members, wherein I might donate a kidney or part of my liver, but a television ad is not going to induce me to do that. And to behave as if giving away one of your kidneys is no biggy is terrible.

As it turns out, the day after these ads started running (or after I saw them, anyway) Althouse linked to a piece about the tragic case of a brother-in-law dying on the operating table when he donated part of his liver to his BIL. The article went on to describe other cases of that and to explain the risk factors that are involved in live-person donations.

I checked the box on my drivers license, but my husband is opposed to even doing that b/c of the fear that doctors are too eager to declare you brain dead. I can't say I completely disagree with him, but I'd rather take the decision out of his hands at a time when I'm a goner rather than have the docs ghoulishly try to convince him to surrender my body for donations.

Yup, that's what it implies. So can some legal beagles here suss out the difference between 'preponderance of evidence' vs 'beyond a reasonable doubt'?

My dad died after a motorcycle accident. He was totally brain dead (no function at all in the brain or the brain stem,w which had "snapped" in the accident) so they pulled the plug. As soon as they did he stopped breathing and everything else stopped. They hassled my mom about wanting his organs, too.

"They nailed me," Joe Muto, an associate producer on Bill O'Reilly's "The Factor" wrote on Gawker late Wednesday.
"Two hours ago I was called into a meeting with Dianne Brandi, the Fox
News Executive Vice President of Legal and Business Affairs, and
suspended indefinitely ... with pay, oddly enough."
Gawker had promised that Muto, who joined Fox News in 2004, would
provide "regular dispatches from inside the organization." It appears he
will continue to write for Gawker about his career at Fox--just not
from the inside.

Underlying Obama’s entire thesis is the work of two economists, Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez. According to them, median American incomes rose just 3.2% from 1979 through 2007. (All figures are inflation adjusted.)
So what happened to the rest of the dough? The top 10%, 1% and 0.1% grabbed all the money. Or pretty much most of it. Time to crank up taxes on the rich and spend more on the middle class. It’s not overstating things to say that the findings of Piketty and Saez form the very heart of Obamanomics, giving a powerful economic rationale for Obama policies such as ending the upper-end Bush tax cuts to Obamacare to the Buffett Rule.
But it’s just not true, according to a new study in National Tax Journal from researchers at Cornell University. (Here’s an earlier, working-paper version.) The academics, led by economist Richard Burkhauser, don’t say the findings of Piketty and Saez are wrong — just incredibly, massively incomplete. According to the Cornell study, median household income – properly measured – rose 36.7%, not 3.2% like Piketty and Saez argue. That’s a big miss. And all income levels got richer. Yes, the very rich did exceptionally well, mostly due to technology and globalization. Incomes rose 63% for the top 5%, 56% for the top 10% and 52.6% for the top 20%. But everyone else made out pretty well, too. Incomes rose 40.4% for households between the 60th and 80th percentiles, 36.9% for the next quintile, 25.0% for the next, and 26.4% for the bottom 20%. There’s the “shared prosperity” Obama says he wants, right in front of his eyes. (Indeed, the study finds, income inequality has actually been shrinking since 1989, with the Gini index falling to 0.362 from 0.372.)

How long ago was this? The so called Harvard Criteria have been working very very well since the late 60s/early 70s, I'm floored. (especially since part of the Harvard Criteria has a ventilator removal test.)
Now days they tend to do blood flow testing, if no blood in the brain, you're brain dead. Seems fairly reasonable. This just sounds like someone wasn't watching the tests close enough. . In any case, that's a bit crazy because once they removed the vent that should have superceded the diagnosis meaning he wasn't actually legally dead. I'm sorry you had to go through that

My great-grandmother died shortly after my son was born. She's started having health problems and as the progressed the doctors decided she was on her way out and they couldn't do any more for her. Which would have been fine had they not interpreted her living will request of not having extraordinary means of prolonging her life as meaning she didn't want a feeding tube, even though she was still frigging conscious and talking and completely aware of what was going on. She begged for a feeding tube but they had my grandma and my great-aunt convinced that by not just letting her die (ie, starving her to death) they were somehow violating her will. It was a total nightmare and I don't trust doctors, especially hospice ones, since that happened.

(if required by local law) with no adornment except a tallit wrapping.


There are several examples of (well: references to) ancient Jews' bodies being preserved for re-burial later (Jacob, for instance. Also Joseph, I'm pretty sure). Also, with the ones who were buried permanently the first time, references to anointing the body with spices and oils, and wrapping the body (pretty sure that's mentioned for both King Saul and King David, but I'd have to double check that).

So my question was is the prohibition (if so strong a term can be used) ignore that kind of "temporary" embalming, and, if not, how does it address those examples?

741 Which would have been fine had they not interpreted her living will request of not having extraordinary means of prolonging her life as meaning she didn't want a feeding tube, even though she was still frigging conscious and talking and completely aware of what was going on.

When the BFF was dying I let her know that I would not remove nutrition or water from her. I would not demand that a feeding tube be inserted either, but, if it was, then I wouldn't remove it. Fortunately (for certain definitions of fortune), she pretty much went from reasonably coherent topassingawaywithin about 72 hours and it was only the last 10 hours or so that she was unable to swallow on her own so it never became an issue.

I made sure that my parents were very clear in their living wills as to what they want re: nutrition. That's a good reminder for the Horde, be very sure you understand how your state/province/whatever interprets what you have listed.

Martin. If that's not the case, he was killed in vain, and we're just
waiting for it to happen to our children. He'll have gotten away with
impunity. It's a disgrace that man hasn't been dragged out of his house
and tied to a car and taken away. That's the only kind of retribution
that people like that understand. It's a disgrace that man hasn't been
shot yet. Forget about him being arrested--the fact that he hasn't been
shot yet is a disgrace. That's how I feel personally about it."

749 The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enforced nearly $500,000 in fines and mandatory “environmental projects” on a school bus contractor for “excessive idling,” and as part of its anti-idling campaign to reduce the carbon footprint of school buses waiting to pick up children for their routes.

“As part of a settlement for alleged excessive diesel idling in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, Durham School Services will commit to reduce idling from its school bus fleet of 13,900 buses operating in 30 states,” read an EPA press release on Tuesday.

The EPA says an agency inspector two years ago spotted buses of the Durham School Services, the second largest school bus transportation contractor in the country, “idling for extended periods of time” in school lots in New England.

“The inspector observed some buses idling for close to two hours before departing the bus lot to pick up school children,” it said. State rules limit idling to three minutes in Connecticut and five minutes in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, where the infractions occurred.

Let's at least give the Texas law it's fair due. There must be a "futility" judgement by 2 doctors, an ethics board convinened and then you have 10 days to find another facility that will take the patient. I've got friends whove worked under that law, it's very very rarely used. Docs don't want to invoke it. Many hospitals are building in such policies because there's no other way to handle the fact that sometimes medical treatment is actually contraindicated but in our litigious society you may be compelled to give it. (There are cases on record of demanding blood transfusions for patients with large wounds that can't be surgically repaired. Blood goes in and imediately right back out again.)
Again though sufficient communication could fix most of these problems.

785 FARRAKHAN’S WILD NEW CLAIMS: JESUS WAS A BLACK MUSLIM & ELIJAH WOULD BE THE ‘N***ER AT THE DOOR’ (PLUS THE BIBLE WAS WRONG ABOUT CAIN!)

And this gem from Mike Tyson:


Mike Tyson thinks that George Zimmerman deserves violent retribution for the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
In an interview with Yahoo News about his upcoming one-man show in Las Vegas, the former heavyweight champion sounded off on the polarizing case:
"My personal feeling is that, as a young kid that was beat on by a bully, that was pretty much singled out—the guy [Zimmerman] stalked him, didn't follow instructions from a superior officer, when they said, 'Stop following the kid.' That tells you everything right there. But my all-around perspective, I wasn't there, I don't know what happened. But it's just so widespread and overt what happened. Even though this is the best country in the world, certain laws in this country are a disgrace to a nation of savages. It's a majority versus a minority. That's the way God planned it. He didn't want to do something about it, He wanted us to do something about it. And if we don't, it's gonna stay this way. We have to continue tweeting, we have to continue marching, we have to continue fighting for Trayvon Martin. If that's not the case, he was killed in vain, and we're just waiting for it to happen to our children. He'll have gotten away with impunity. It's a disgrace that man hasn't been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. That's the only kind of retribution that people like that understand. It's a disgrace that man hasn't been shot yet. Forget about him being arrested--the fact that he hasn't been shot yet is a disgrace. That's how I feel personally about it."

794 No, its anyone, Allen. The point of the law is to keep hospitals from being obligated to offer futile care. The problem is that there are 4 types of futility, and a hospital can claim your ventilator is futile if you won't recover, but you can live with assistance for several months. So far, it has mostly been used against poor children with genetic conditions.

The really f'd up part is that hospitals will often refuse to make the medical acommidations necessary to allow for transfer.

810 I went to an Indians-Orioles game there in 1992 when Southwest had just started cheap flights and the Orioles were OK. It was interesting watching a game in an 80,000 seat stadium with 6000 spectators, many of them orioles fans. A dump that place was...

819 Shows how useless the post office is now. I had to drive there to find
out first class postage is 45 cents. I bought one stamp to mail my jury
summons response. I'm pretty sure I didn't go to the post office in 2011
at all.


LOL. You probably guaranteed that you'll need a stamp for something next week.

The grocery stores around here sell stamps, FWIW.

823 Regarding staying at home with Children as not working. In my younger days I was a stay at home mom . As I was changing diapers, chasing kids, and picking up messes, my Friends were dressed nicely, going to work, seeing other Adults. When they got home after work they got to visit with their Children for maybe 3 hours before they put them to bed, the Kids having been tended to all day by someone else who changed their diapers,chased them, and picked up the messes.

829 The Steve Jackson raids and when they put Gorelick on the 9/11 panel were two big events in my divorce from conformity.

The punchline about the former was that it exposed certain 'irregularities' in the bookkeeping at SJG that Steve himself hadn't been aware of. It took a while to recover, but that knowledge probably prevented a nasty financial implosion down the road due to malfeasance.

By the way, bonus points if you can tell me which Circuit Court of Appeals ripped the gov't a new one for that Charlie Foxtrot. Let's just say, some things never change...

Just got back from picking the boy up from school so I'm sure this thread is well and truly dead. But in case lurker is still lurking here, she had liver failure. I don't remember exactly what brought it on. I know she was also suffering from emphysema but I don't think that was the main cause of her road to demise. She was legitimately on her way out and had gotten to a stage where she couldnt swallow, hence the need for a feeding tube. I just dunno how you let someone who is conscious and coherent starve to death like that.i don't see that as extraordinary measures, especially when the person is actually asking for the feeding tube.
