Tim Geithner in front of attacked IRS building in Austin
Top Internal Revenue Service administrators, in Austin on Monday to meet with employees after an attack on their office, said workers vowed to carry on despite what one of the officials called a "senseless act."
While very few working people would say they haven’t had their fair share of taxes (as can I), in my lifetime I can say with a great degree of certainty that there has never been a politician cast a vote on any matter with the likes of me or my interests in mind. Nor, for that matter, are they the least bit interested in me or anything I have to say.

Here is a story that is another example of how sexual discrimination is deemed OK as long as it is directed towards men.
In Oklahoma it is deemed a tragedy that the state leads the nation in incarcerating women per capita. In response, the legislature has approved $500,000 to fund a non-prison alternative to non violent female offenders.
I am not opposed to keeping non-violent offenders out of jail. Our prisons are overflowing ever since the government has launched its misguided “war” on drugs. There is no reason that drug addicts should be sent to prison.
However, the question is why does Oklahoma think that such a program is good for women but not men? Per the official statistics, 87% of the prison population is composed of men (see chart below). It seems based on the data, the tax money would be better spent on men.
Of course, the unstated reason is that our society has a lower value of men than women. Men receive harsher prison sentences for the same crime, receive less health care funding and have a shorter life expectancy. But in our feminist society, this is deemed perfectly acceptable. You will notice that the mainstream media doesn’t even bother to ask the obvious question as to why men are excluded from such a program. It is just assumed that men do not matter.

Moving to tamp a controversy that has reached the national news, MARTA CEO Beverly Scott said Thursday afternoon that the transit agency would change the name of its “yellow” train line, which goes to Doraville, home to a large Asian-American community. The line will now be called "gold."

LOS ANGELES -- Only miles from the scenic vistas and celebrity mansions that draw sightseers from around the globe - but a world away from the glitz and glamour - a bus tour is rolling through the dark side of the city's gang turf.
Passengers paying $65 a head Saturday signed waivers acknowledging they could be crime victims and put their fate in the hands of tattooed ex-gang members who say they have negotiated a cease-fire among rivals in the most violent gangland in America.
Pretty Cool idea! Maybe if you get lucky you can watch a drug deal go bad!
Here is a gangster name generator.
According to this site, RAMZPAUL is called:

From the wacky world of government censors:
The Australian Classification Board (ACB) is now banning depictions of small-breasted women in adult publications and films.
Under this act, a 30 year old woman could potentially be arrested in Australia for posting a topless photo IF she has small breasts. If the woman should have large enough breasts (not specified by the government) it is OK.
In Australia it would be illegal for this woman to post a topless photo of herself:
However, it would be legal for this woman to post a topless photo:
