Health Care and Violence

WASHINGTON (AP) - A fax bearing the image of a noose. Profane voice mails. Bricks thrown, a gas line cut. White powder sent to an office.

Democrats and a few Republicans revealed mounting numbers and unsettling details of threats against them Thursday in the emotional aftermath of the passage of the health care overhaul.

Lawmakers uniformly condemned the harassment, but that's where the agreement ended. Democrats said Republicans were slow to condemn the vigilantism, while Republicans said Democrats were playing politics with the threats.

Flash Mobs and Hate at Walmart

Two interesting stories over the past week.

In Philly a flash mob composed of “youths” went on a rampage attacking businesses and people. Per the story:

“About 11 p.m. a 27-year-old woman was walking on South near 15th when a large group of male and female juveniles ganged up on her, kicking and punching her until she fell to the ground, where they continued to kick her in the face and head. She was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital”

So what was the response to this flash mob? Again, a quote from the story –

"Maybe the city should entertain kids to keep them from causing trouble."

Now for a serious crime. In a New Jersey Walmart, a 16 year old kid got on the intercom and made an announcement that Blacks needed to leave the store. Luckily the New Jersey police swarmed the scene and investigated this horrible crime. The kid was identified and arrested.

Office spokesman Bernie Weisenfeld said in the statement that its victim-witness unit has contacted the store's management, offering counseling services to anyone affected by the announcement. The county's Human Relations Commission was offering similar help.

Health Care and Conservatives

While on a road trip last week, I had the privilege to listen to talk radio. Years ago I used to listen to Rush Limbaugh during my afternoon commute. At the time, his show was funny and pretty irreverent. He was not scared to skew the politically corrects gods.

Over the years I tuned talk radio out. I suppose that was mostly due to the advent of the Internet. After all, why should I just be a passive listener when the Internet allowed me to actually join the debate?

So when I heard Rush again after a hiatus of many years, I was disappointed to hear how dull and boring his show had become. Gone was the sparkle and irreverent wit. The wit was replaced with a tedious lecture of parliamentary procedures and a bemoaning of how those evil Democrats won’t follow the Constitution.

Below is a link from the conservative web site, It seems that the conservatives are declaring a “constitutional crisis” based on the fact that the Democrats are using a parliamentary procedure called the 'Slaughter Rule'. And, yes, these are the same conservatives that are just fine and dandy with the president conducting and initiating an unconstitutional war without congressional approval. The depth of hypocrisy is amazing.

What I find frustrating with Conservatives is that they will fuss and bitch about over a minor technical parliamentary point without looking at the greater social forces. Demographically America is changing based on birth rates and Third World immigration away from a traditional northern European concept of private property, liberty and individual justice.

Below is a link to a recent murder in Tulsa at a Chicken Hut. A man was shot down in cold blood while a crowd milled in a parking lot waiting to get chicken. Per the story:

“Restaurant patrons even shoved past emergency workers, stepping over the victim to get their food.”

What conservatives don’t (or are too frightened) to admit, is that the people that will gladly walk over a man bleeding to death for a bucket of chicken are the same people that typically have 8 or 9 illegitimate children. The people who follow the rules are create the wealth in America are lucky to have two children. The demographic trend spells the certain death of the traditional values of this nation. Yet all the Rush Limbaugh conservatives can do is bitch about the evil Democrats and some stupid parliamentary procedure.

School Board Hoodlums

Below is a shocking story of how a School Board chairwoman used the racist phrase “hoodlum”. Please be sure to vote on the on-line poll to express your OUTRAGE over these fine young students being disparaged in such a manner.

Pinellas School Board chairwoman Janet Clark is coming under fire for using the term "hoodlums" to describe a small group of chronically disruptive students in county schools.

Board members Mary Brown and Linda Lerner criticized Clark at Tuesday night's board meeting. And now Ray Tampa, president of the St. Petersburg branch of the NAACP, said Clark's refusal to apologize has made things worse.

Brown and Lerner weighed in Tuesday night.

"They might be disruptive. They might be in gangs. They might be many things, but they are not hoodlums," Brown said.

Should the head of Detroit schools know how to read and write?

Per the Detroit News:

The president of the Detroit school board, Otis Mathis, is waging a legal battle to steer the academic future of 90,000 children, in the nation's lowest-achieving big city district.

He also acknowledges he has difficulty composing a coherent English sentence. Here's a sample from an e-mail he sent to friends and supporters on Sunday night, uncorrected for errors of spelling, grammar, punctuation and usage. It begins:

If you saw Sunday's Free Press that shown Robert Bobb the emergency financial manager for Detroit Public Schools, move Mark Twain to Boynton which have three times the number seats then students and was one of the reason's he gave for closing school to many empty seats.

From The Detroit News:

Snowman Busted!

After Rahway, N.J., police received an anonymous complaint about "a naked snow woman," the artistic family behind a front-yard tribute to Venus de Milo says an officer paid a visit and told them to cover up their Greek goddess of love and beauty

When a society becomes sick, you can always find such amusing news. In New Jersey, a 14 year old girl can legally have a gang bang with the football team. Hell, such an action would be hailed as “sexual empowerment” by feminists. And, yet, a nude snowman on private property results in a 911 call.

Here was the original snow woman that prompted the call to the police:

Here is the same snow woman after the police demanded that the snow woman be covered:

Race Based Shopping

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- We all have New Year’s resolutions. Ultimately they all involve changing some habit into positive behavior. But one local woman’s goal benefits an entire community.

"I've made a commitment to shop only black-owned businesses for an entire year," said Lora McDonald.

Miss Lora "I am so fucking diverse!" McDonald speaks to the media beaming with pride.

Hmmmm… I wonder if this woman announced that she had made a New Year’s resolution to shop at only White owned businesses the local media would be hailing this as “positive behavior”? My guess is that KSHB-TV would be running a segment titled something like “HATE IN THE HEARTLAND” (cue scary music).
