So anyway, "Houston, we have a problem". And the problem will continue to manifest itself in ways that you cannot imagine. Kids are not learning in urban schools, and even if they were getting an education; the job prospects for them are really bleak. The head of African American households (usually single mothers with limited job skills and education) are getting laid off, and they are having to depend more and more on a government that is being slashed to the bone by wingnuts and their minions with no clue.
His Oness was on television last night begging the A-merry-can people to call their elected politicians to tell them that we are in deep s&^%, and that unless they (the poli-tricksters)get together to raise the debt ceiling all hell is going to break loose. A-merry-ca will lose it's triple A credit rating (Great, wait for the black man to get in charge before you f&^% with A-merry-ca's credit. Digression alert! You Negroes really need to stop stealing your children and grand children's social security numbers to buy s&^% and then f&^%*ng up their credit before they are old enough to vote.)
Anyway, this is fast becoming a game of chicken. Wingnuts on one side sticking to their plan to derail the government because the tall beige man is the HNIC.
(Forget the fact that voting to raise the debt ceiling has never been a problem before.) And Obamacrats on the other side standing by their man.
But hey, such is life in A-merry-ca; we have to protect the rich and make sure that their taxes are not raised while the peasants and the masses keep voting against their own interest.
I see that my friend Glenn was at it again. This time he compared the kids that were slaughtered by that mad man in Norway to Hitler youth camp attendees.
".. he questioned what the victims were doing at a summer camp run by Norway's ruling Labour Party. Beck said the camp "sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler Youth or whatever. Who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing."
Really Mr. Beckkk, you mean like this one? Dope!
Finally, a post wouldn't be a post without a little racism chasing. This one comes by way of the state of Kentucky. (h/t to Monica for e-mailing me about this story)
This is Monica's letter to judge Kattie King:
"Dear Ms. King,
I'm extremely disappointed in how you handled a recent case regarding a young lady in your courtroom. You put this African American woman in jail for five days because you did not agree with her conduct in your courtroom. When I first heard about this incident, I guess I was prepared to see some wild, crazy, behavior. When in fact, all I saw was a young lady who had short personal conversation which you "rightfully" interrupted and then you asked her to leave your courtroom. Since the conversation was over. She went QUIETLY without any disrespect back to her seat. At that point, you escalated this situation. Video: http://alturl.com/cvgwq
On the other-hand, you released a white man, who had FOUR DUI's from jail. Source: http://alturl.com/h4fzm How in the world does someone have Four DUIs and doesn't serve jail time? But a young African American woman who was not on trial, you sentenced to five days in jail because you didn't like her courtroom demeanor. Are you kidding me? Do you not see the racial disparity of injustice. You made sure she WENT TO JAIL. But you allowed a REPEAT DUI offender walk out of the courtroom.
You do not have the maturity, level headed-ed demeanor to hold your position. You are a hot-head who feels the need to put certain types of people in their place. You are not fair and too inexperienced to hold that position. Putting a young woman in jail for five days is extreme. Her behavior did not warrant that type of punishment. For the record, I do not know or have ever met that woman.
Do the judicial system a favor - resign. You are not fit to wear that robe.
Monica, I doubt if the good judge will even read your letter. But don't worry, I published it here.
