Those dangerous super soakers and wingnut propagandist.

I know that folks think that I go out and look for stuff to use in order to pick on my wingnut friends, but I really don't. Sometimes this stuff just comes to me. All I have to do is pick up the paper and read.

"In the politically-charged and likely protest-filled streets of Tampa, Fla., during the Republican National Convention in August, water guns will be strictly prohibited. Concealed handguns, on the other hand, will be perfectly legal.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott said this week that banning handguns from downtown Tampa during the convention, as the city's Mayor Bob Buckhorn requested, "would surely violate the Second Amendment."

"It is unclear how disarming law-abiding citizens would better protect them from the dangers and threats posed by those who would flout the law," Scott said in a letter to Buckhorn Tuesday, emphasizing the words "law-abiding." "It is at just such times that the constitutional right of self defense is most precious and must be protected from government overreach."

Buckhorn said today that he was "disappointed" by Scott's decision, but that the city will "plan and train accordingly."

Tampa officials are expecting thousands of protesters to descend on the Florida metropolis for the GOP convention. While no handguns will be allowed inside the convention, which is being protected by the Secret Service, concealed carry license-holders will be able to carry their weapons in the streets surrounding the convention.

They will not, however, be able to have "super soaker" water guns, sticks, poles, portable shields or glass bottles.

Buckhorn said last month that the state law, which prohibits the city from temporarily banning handguns, makes the city "look silly" because officials can prohibit water guns but not real ones.." [Source]

I guess that to my wingnuts friends, a little water can be a dangerous thing.

Finally, you can thank a wingnut blogger named Matt Drudge for the non- stories you will be hearing about O over the next few months leading up to the 2012 elections. (Dude looks like he should be registered as a sex offender. Don't sue me Matt. You will lose.) In case you were wondering, Mr. Drudge is a hack for the Romney campaign and he feeds FOX NEWS and the rest of the GOP their talking points every day. The sad thing is that Mr. Drudge has a knack for making a mountain out of a molehill. And, in some cases, creating the illusion of a mountain where there really is none.

This latest story is a perfect example:

"Above is a screen-shot of DrudgeReport.com earlier today, *see insert* linking to a story about President Obama’s past. Pretty exciting stuff: “Obama Admits Fabricating Girlfriend in Memoir.”

Those who jumped on that link reached a Politico story with this headline: “Obama: ‘New York girlfriend’ was composite.” That piece was a work of aggregation, based on the new Vanity Fair book excerpt of David Maraniss’s “Barack Obama: The Story.”

The excerpt plumbs Obama’s romance with Genevieve Cook, a woman he’d met at a party in 1983. Maraniss goes deep into the relationship, with some able assistance from Cook’s journal entries. One of them reads:

Today, for the first time, Barack sat on the edge of the bed — dressed — blue jeans and luscious ladies on his chest [a comfy T-shirt depicting buxom women], the end of the front section of the Sunday Times in his hand, looking out the window, and the quality of light reflected from his eyes, windows of the soul, heart, and mind, was so clear, so unmasked, his eyes narrower than he usually holds them looking out the window, usually too aware of me.

Though Obama references this relationship in his memoir “Dreams From My Father,” he doesn’t name Cook. Maraniss addresses this omission in the Vanity Fair excerpt:
Decades later, during an interview in the Oval Office, Obama acknowledged that, while Genevieve was his New York girlfriend, the description in his memoir was a “compression” of girlfriends, including one who followed Genevieve when he lived in Chicago.
Politico hopped on the matter, with media reporter Dylan Byers writing, in part: “But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the ‘New York girlfriend’ was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago.”

Keep reading.

"Okay, but way back Obama told the whole world that characters in that book were composites. From the introduction to “Dreams From My Father”: “For the sake of compression, some of the characters that appear are composites of people I’ve known, and some events appear out of precise chronology. With the exception of my family and a handful of public figures, the names of most characters have been changed for the sake of privacy.”

In other words, there’s nothing at all surprising about this composite thing.
Byers defends the value of his post: “The news that the ‘New York girlfriend’ is a composite character is new. Though Obama acknowledges the use of composite characters in his introduction, he does not specify which characters he is referring to. It thus seemed like a relevant item.” An update and correction to the post clarify that it initially overplayed the story by leaving out a critical detail:
UPDATE: In the reissue of “Dreams from My Father,” Obama writes in the introduction that “some of the characters that appear are composites of people I’ve known.”
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this blog post stated that Obama had acknowledged using composite characters in the reissue. In fact, Obama acknowledged the use of composite characters in the first edition of the book...
Obama’s shortcut of constructing composites was a lame and lazy way to put together a memoir. But if you signal to the reader that it’s the route you’re taking, it’s no lie. If recent history is any guide, however, we’ll be hearing the echo from this Politico-to-Drudge handoff for years to come." [Source]

You forgot one Mr. Wemple: "Politico-to- Drudge"-to Fox News.

Now that's more like it.

"I know that folks think that I go out and look for stuff to use"

You do...but that's not the point.

It's the fact that you selectively and deliberately ignore certain stories...black-on-white violence, black hypocrisy, etc... because they don't fit your racist agenda.

The Occupy movement has already demonstrated a habit of using human waste (aka shit) as a weapon. Apparently it has never occurred to you that the Occupiers might use super-soakers to spray urine (or god-knows-what) on convention attendees (which you would probably find amusing).

Your inability to even consider that Rick Scott (who is infinitely smarter than you) might have a legitimate reason for this ban is indicative of your blind hatred for those with whom you disagree.

BTW, are you aware that Cordell Lamar Jude, the black male who murdered unarmed hispanic male Daniel Adkins at a Taco Bell in Phoenix, STILL has not been arrested?

Why no outrage??

"Finally, you can thank a wingnut blogger named Matt Drudge for the non- stories you will be hearing about"

Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting the belief that others originate those feelings.[1]

Projection reduces anxiety by allowing the expression of the unwanted unconscious impulses or desires without letting the conscious mind recognize them.

Reply to Liberal Tormentor from the previous thread:

My Lord LT! Where in the hell did you find that statement by Maxine Waters? Is that recent? Because if it is, Maxine and the CBC is full of it!

I am Black and I am sick and tired of the President stepping on us. Never before since the Jim Crow days have I seen my people so discriminated against in America. Just look at our job situation. It's devastating. And Maxine Waters claims we love the President so much that we are willing to starve to death for him? GET REAL.

The truth is the CBC has joined Obama in being against us. However, the CBC has never been much of a support for the black community anyway. They aren't the only ones....

Field keeps covering up for the President by keeping silence while we suffer. I swear. Some of our people are so devoted to the Dems that they are legally blind with wide open eyes.

I am a very depressed Negro, isolated and lonely...living with the hard ugly truth.

Wingnutts slinging made up pumped up bullshit about Obama? Do tell! That's water off his shoulders and only drives true independents into his camp.

Meanwhile black infants die in Mississippi at more than twice the rate of white infants. One in 3 of those black males nationally who survive infanthood is destined for felony imprisonment and lifetime disenfranchisement. Young black people are 15 times more likely than their white peers to die a violent death. Employed black people are 5 times more likely to lose their jobs than employed white people. I could go on and on. The measures are real -across the board in America black life is harder, more fraught, and more tenuous than white life, and that difference is so pervasive as to rightly be called structural.

I wonder if there's anything in our past, some incident or institution, some history, that might explain this structure?

Nice try Field. Is Republican what you call people who actually tell the truth nowadays? I understand. Drudge has been around for ages, when the MSM lies, hides things you can usually get the true news on the Drudge report.

WHo the hell writes an autobiography and then "compresses" experiences to tell a tale presenting it as if it were one woman. Sure, this isn't fiction. So take all the good things from various points in your life and put them together, you must be a super-hero...or A Liar.

yes, there is. Let's look at other Black Countries and cultures around the world. What do they have in common with Black cultures in the U.S? Let's give that logic a whirl and see what you come up with. Tell you what, I will make it easy on you in case your capacity is limited. Start with Haiti. How is Haiti doing following the earthquake in 2010 and billions of dollars in aid, food, medical equipment, construction supplies etc, etc, After 2 years and free supplies they should have new cities started. How's it going? Take a shot at that Whitehead.

Irrespective of race and worldwide, babies born to uneducated, unmarried mothers have a higher infant mortality rate.

Coincidentally, black mothers are significantly more likely to be uneducated and unmarried.

It isn't about time Negress. It is about brainpower. If you had even one of the five degrees you claim you would be able to spell pers-i-nally correctly. It is a second grade spelling word after all. How many grades does "fife du-greeze equls?

Genevieve and Barack talked about race quite often, as part of his inner need to find a sense of belonging. She sympathized and encouraged his search for identity. If she felt like an outsider, he was a double outsider, racial and cross-cultural. He looked black, but was he? He confessed to her that at times “he felt like an imposter. Because he was so white. There was hardly a black bone in his body.” At some point that summer she realized that, “in his own quest to resolve his ambivalence about black and white, it became very, very clear to me that he needed to go black.”


It’s not a question of my wanting to probe ancient pools of emotional trauma … but more a sense of you [Barack] biding your time and drawing others’ cards out of their hands for careful inspection—without giving too much of your own away—played with a good poker face. And as you say, it’s not a question of intent on your part—or deliberate withholding—you feel accessible, and you are, in disarming ways. But I feel that you carefully filter everything in your mind and heart—legitimate, admirable, really—a strength, a necessity in terms of some kind of integrity. But there’s something also there of smoothed veneer, of guardedness … but I’m still left with this feeling of … a bit of a wall—the veil.
