Negroes needed in Mississippi.

Supporters of Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel hold signs during a Tea Party Express campaign event in Biloxi, Mississippi, June 22, 2014.I feel for my cousins down in Mississippi who are caught in the middle of a very nasty republican fight.


A quick update: A tea party candidate with a dubious and rather interesting history is challenging the incumbent who has been the senator there since my cousins were picking cotton. (OK, it only seems like it's been that long, but you get the idea.) And a very heated race has come to a head.


Mississippi has an open primary, and the saner of the two candidates is begging black folks to come out and vote for him , because apparently he represents the lesser of two evils.


Negroes, please come out and vote for Thad Cochran, he needs you.


So now, the tea party being the tea party, are going to have their loyal soldiers patrolling the polling places to watch for cheating Negroes.


They are calling it the "voter integrity project", but they might as well call it the keep Negroes from voting project, because that's exactly what they want to do.


Anyway, I wonder who is going to watch the conservative poll watchers while they poll watch.


 "An array of conservative groups supporting Chris McDaniel, including the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Tea Party Patriots, and True the Vote have said they’re sending poll-watchers to the state amid reports that some Mississippi Democratic operatives are working to turn out black Democrats in support of McDaniel’s opponent, Sen. Thad Cochran. The poll-watching effort is being organized in part by Christian Adams, a former Bush Justice Department lawyer who has long sought to publicize claims of voter fraud and illegal voting."


There was a time when folks went to Mississippi to advance civil rights, now, sadly, the times have changed. These folks are going to do the exact opposite thing.


Finally, I really wish that Dick Cheney would just stop. Honestly, he is hurting himself and his party more than anyone else at this point.


Besides, all anyone has to do is to click on this link to see why everyone in the Bush administration during the lead up to the Iraq war needs to just STFU.


"Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s media tour showed no signs of slowing Tuesday with appearances on The Rush Limbaugh Show and now Hugh Hewitt’s radio show. On the latter, Cheney said he believes there will be another major terrorist attack on the homeland before the end of the decade, this one “far deadlier” than 9/11.


Asked by Hewitt if he thinks we can “get through this decade without a massive attack on the homeland,” Cheney answered, “I doubt it.”


“I think there will be another attack and this time I think it’s likely to be far deadlier than the last one,” he added.


From there, Cheney began to fantasize about “what would happen if someone could smuggle a nuclear device, put it in a shipping container and drive it down the beltway outside of Washington, D.C.”


When Hewitt suggested there would have to be “military rule” in the United States if something like that were to happen, Cheney detailed the “continuity of government” program, which was set up during the Cold War to ensure a “government in waiting” that could step in if needed. "


Lord have mercy, now the man is telling terrorists how to attack America.


If you love that man you will lock him in the attic and throw away the key.

Pretty bad video you linked to.

All those images of the confederate flag and every image was of a black person.

Someone wanted to paint a negative picture of "hip hop culture."

We white people just can't win.

Yesterday black people were demanding VP Cheney give the 4-11 on the shadow government.

Today black people are demanding VP Cheney shut the hell up and not talk about the shadow government.

This is why it's so hard being a white man these days.

Kinky, you are a plagiarizer of depressed Negro's slogan, "It's depressing to be a bm in America."

Now, I'm not a big fan of Field, although I am a fan, but Field's post proves it is a bitch to be Black in America and it's even worse in MS.

Kinky, I just wish you and Bill would fess up and agree with FN once in a while. You have no idea how that would lift my depression....and many other depressions on FN also.

Show some compassion. You Whites are so mean-spirited and insensitive, esp Bill.

I don't think Dick Cheney should shut up. I very much hope he'll keep talking. Few things could be more damaging to his party than the Prince of Darkness rearing his ugly head, and spewing his horrendous ideas, over and over again.

The Republicans should be scrambling to find a way to cram the evil bastard back in the closet ... but Democrats should really put him on payroll.

FN said...
Lord have mercy, now the man is telling terrorists how to attack America.


No worries.

The NY times already told terrorists how to attack America.

MILLIONS of cargo containers are unloaded from ships each year at American seaports, providing countless opportunities for terrorists to smuggle and unleash a nuclear bomb or weapon of mass destruction on our shores.
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/27/opinion/the-dangerous-delay-on-port-security.html

And Bloomberg's paper already told the terrorists about the giving up of looking for bombs.

Five years after Congress set a deadline for requiring all U.S.-bound shipping containers to be X-rayed overseas for nuclear weapons, customs officials have all but given up on the goal.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-08-13/u-s-backs-off-all-cargo-scanning-goal-with-inspections-at-4-.html


And to think you were asking the Lord for mercy about cheney helping the terrorists.

Not all helping terrorists is equal to democrats.

McDaniel's campaign should motivate black Mississippi residents to vote ... with their feet!

Seriously, black people, leave and go live somewhere less horrible! Mississippi is a racist, economic wasteland, and it will only get worse -- both racially and economically -- if McDaniel gets elected. The McDaniel campaign is really just a very elaborate public suicide note for the state.

ONLY to alleviate the fears of FN about cheney helping terrorists...

"If a terrorist manages to conceal a weapon of mass destruction in a shipping container, it must be discovered long before that container reaches our shore," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.
http://www.sptimes.com/2007/08/24/news_pf/Worldandnation/Scan_cargo_ships__but.shtml


put the warhead in a shipping container like one of the 400 million indentical ones that enter US ports each year. When the ship docks in a major port like Atlanta, or San Francisco, or New York detonate it.

If Pelosi "helping the terrorists" didn't bother you, there is no reasonable reason for you to have increased fears just because cheney said it.

"Kinky, you are a plagiarizer"

While we both share a certain depression-i tend to think bm depression comes from dealing with white supremacy and the failings of his community.

You have to put yourself in my position. Being a white man in America isn't what it use to be.

This country was built by strong white men who cared deeply for their fellow man.

Just look at our country today.

It's lost. Never coming back.

My apologies to depressed negro. I meant no disrespect.

I thought poll watching was fairly common, here and in other countries. And Mississippi has the highest % of blacks of any state, almost 40% of the state's population. That's a lot of potential new voters for a GOP primary. It'll probably be a state record lol.

As for Cheney, many people have been talking and writing about potential types of terrorist attacks for years. Nothing new at all there.

Just in time for the 50th anniversary of the CRA and Goodwin, Schwerner and Cheney's deaths we get poll watchers to intimidate blah folks. Mississippi, which still has the confederate flag on its state flag and just outlawed slavery last year, sure knows how to throw an anniversary party.
Man, even Fox news called Cheney out on his BS. You have to be telling some massive whoppers to get called out by Fox.

KKKY you are a lying fuck. I've been a white man since 1978, and it has never been easier being a white man in America since before the CRA and VRA of the mid '60s. Back then white people actually had to, however reluctantly, pay attention to black people if for no other reason than them daily putting their lives on the line to publicly expose white venality and hypocrisy. Today we've re-institutionalized the ability of white America to ignore black America more thoroughly than at any time since high Jim Crow a hundred years ago. With the election of our first black president, 45 years of pent up whiteness burst out of the tbaggers in a flood of malignant whiteness that still, 6 years later, cries out not just his illegitimacy but that of all black citizenship.

"Poll Watchers" in Mississipi in 2014. We ought to hang our heads in shame.

Who is "we"? Who has run this country for the last 50 years? Liberal democrats, that's who.

WTF are you talking about, white man?

Protesting the metastasizing federal government's reach into all aspects of our lives is "malignant whiteness"? What do you demand white people do, lay down before our rulers like black wards of the state or Mexican peasants?

If standing up for one's rights and freedoms is 'racist', then what this country needs is more 'racism'.

Barack Obama's policies aren't opposed because Barack Obama is half black, but because he is a fucking communist tyrant who is absolutely shredding the Constitution in an attempt to Fundamentally Change America into a socialist nightmare.

You stupid sons of bitches will defend this incompetent, malicious fool to the end just because he is black, while accusing anyone who raises an objection of doing so only because they can't stand a half black man in the White House.

Motherfuck you and all the Goddamn morons marching this country into oblivion.

WC, don't you think you are being a little hard on Kinky? I mean the man is depressed as a wm. As a depressed Negro I know what depression can do to a man's self-esteem and brains.

You have an interesting take on where we are today and where we came from. I am not a smart person or a great reader but your comment to Kinky sounded 'heavy'...for all Americans.

Did you mean we have regressed back to Jim Crow days where Whites don't even notice Blacks anymore? Now that is the stuff that started my depression decades ago.

Nothing. And I mean 'nothing" will darken a man's soul more than to 'not' even notice that he counts.

That brings me to the conclusion that the majority of Blacks are probably depressed but too ashamed to admit it.

Damn.

Cheney has first hand knowledge of the 9-11 attacks, so he should know. After all he is the one who told the military planes to stand down while he was hiding out in his bunker.
His comments mean that Haliburton and KBR wants to stay in the war business to decades to come. So they figure we need another attack to get us there.

A narrow escape.

I'm thinking maybe enough white Mississippians finally came to the realization that the Teabilly would not be able to bring home the federal bacon like Cochran historically had, thereby pushing their state's feeble economy even further toward Third World status.

Or, possibly, enough black Mississippians really did turn out to put Cochran over the top, on account of McDaniel's being a big ol' racist.

Either way, we can expect a whole new batch of deranged conservative conspiracy theories to be hatched to explain this loss. And maybe even some litigation. The McDaniel crowd seem like quintessential sore loser types.

The Purple Cow said...

(I just wanted to take a minor time-out from our debate to talk to the rational respondents of this blog about the issue of trying to debate with morons, and what it says about the morons themselves and the current state of far-Right thinking in America.)

The problem with debating the likes of Bill, Viva Ethnic, QLB and Kinky is not just that they are not very intelligent, it’s more that they don’t know they are not very intelligent. This makes debating difficult, because they do not recognize such concepts as ‘evidence’, ‘facts’, or ‘rationality’ for what they are.

Take our current debate. Yesterday I demonstrated that the gap between rich and everyone else in America had been growing almost exponentially since the end of the 1970’s. This inequality (measured by the Gini coefficient) has risen so sharply that America now stands 91st in the world in terms of inequality, behind such bastions of liberal democracy as Russia and Iran.

For Bill, the ONLY thing that matters is the EXACT date that the rising inequality began. Forget what happened in the 80’s, 90’s, 00’s or teenies. It was ALL Jimmy Carter’s fault according to Bill. The fact that Americans are not getting richer today, anno 2014, despite the fact that they are working longer hours is down to Jimmy Carter. (Incidentally I have proof that it was Reagan’s policy that was at fault which I will post shortly.)

Then there’s Viva Ethnic Cleansing. Where to start? A man (I’m guessing) that makes Bill seem intellectually sharp in comparison. His position is that the suppression of wealth was not caused by the rich making themselves richer, but was caused by women and immigrants pushing down average wages. (Women and immigrants notice – the twin hate figures of the far-Right male.)

When I noted that there was no evidence that a surge of women entered the workforce in the 80’s and 90’s, he responded with a link to a graph that proved me right!!! Clearly he hadn’t actually looked at the graph at all, I can only presume he had misunderstood the graph’s title.

I also posted a link to no less than FOUR academic papers that demonstrated no discernable link between immigrant labour and a reduction in pay rates for indigenous workers, he responded that there were “dozens” of academic papers that proved the opposite. I asked for a link to them. I’m still waiting.

Then finally there’s Kinky, the dim-witted lapdog of the far-Right. Has no worthwhile opinions of his own, but comes yapping to the arguments just as he feels that his guy is winning the debate. Sadly for him, because he is not clever enough to understand the debates, he has a habit of bounding up to slobber his congratulations just as his guys loses!

So here’s the thing. You have an entire section of American society that has turned its back on reason. Turned its back on rationality, turned its back on science, turned its back on facts. The internet allows people to live in a self-reinforcing bubble. If you only listen to people who confirm your prejudices, only take your ‘news’ from news agencies (or these days, blogs) that do the same, you are quickly going to lose touch with reality. Now if there was just a couple of hundred of these nutters living on a ranch in Bumfuck Idaho, that wouldn’t be a problem for America. But there are actually several million Americans who think this way. Kinky, Bill, QLB, they should be freaks on the very extreme of the political spectrum, but they are not. Their insane, illogical and internally inconsistent paradigm is increasingly accepted by those on America’s political right.

So my question is, how do you govern a country like that? How do you apply rational governance to people who reject rationality?

Anonymous said...

Earlier, I said this:

"The McDaniel crowd seem like quintessential sore loser types."

Turns out, I was right. The McDaniel temper tantrums have already begun.

A quote from the illustrious Teabilly:

"[The GOP] was a party of principle at one point," McDaniel said in his remarks to supporters. "A party of courage at one point. It was Reagan that said, 'We will be a party of bold colors, not pastels.' And yet there are millions of people who feel like strangers in their own party."

He continued: "There is something a bit unusual about a Republican primary that's decided by liberal Democrats. So much for bold colors. So much for principle. I guess they can take some consolation that they did something tonight by once again compromising, by once again reaching against the aisle, by once again abandoning the conservative movement."

"This is not the party of Reagan," he said. "Today the conservative movement took a backseat to liberal Democrats in the state of Mississippi."


In conclusion:

Everything's ruined. St. Reagan is crying bitter tears in the great hereafter. Obama has folded up the Constitution and is wearing it as a paper hat.

America's over, man! It's over!!!

Then McDaniel stomped off to go console himself by burning some crosses.

So, as I said, income of the top 10% wealthiest Americans starts to climb under Jimmy Carter, but look closely what period does the graph suddenly start to increase exponentially - that's right 1982/3.

The Purple Cow said...

More of the same.

Here's a graph of America's Gini coefficient. Note how the inequality between rich and poor falls slowly and steadily from WW2 to the 1970's. It then begins to rise slowly under Carter, before sky-rocketing under Reagan/Bush 1.

The Effect of Immigrants on The Wages of U.S.-Born Workers

How immigrants impact the wages of U.S.-born workers depends on whether immigrants and U.S.-born workers compete for the same jobs or, instead, if they complement each other in the labor market. Despite concerns that competition from immigrants might harm employment prospects for native-born Americans, recent economic research suggests that, on average, immigrants raise wages and expand employment opportunities for Americans.

How is this possible? The answer lies in the way that the economy evolves to incorporate immigrants. For instance, less-skilled immigrants working in, say, agriculture, construction, or household services, appear to improve the wages and earnings of Americans by expanding the capacity of American businesses and farms, increasing the responsibility and pay of American foremen and supervisors, and providing expanded opportunities for higher-skilled Americans, particularly women, to pursue higher-paying careers.

Economists find that, on average, previous waves of immigrants tended to boost American wages. In fact, studies have shown that immigration has caused small but positive gains in wages of American-born workers of between 0.1 percent and 0.6 percent between 1990 and 2006. Where the literature divides, however, is in the distributional consequences—how the availability of immigrant labor impacts wages for U.S.-born workers of differing skill and educational levels. A 2007 study by George Borjas and Lawrence Katz found that, from 1980 to 2000, U.S.-born college graduates saw an average wage decrease of 0.5 percent because of immigration, while those without a high school degree saw as much as a 4.8 percent decrease in wages. In contrast, a 2012 study by Gianmarco Ottaviano and Giovanni Peri found positive wage effects across all educational levels between 1990 and 2006.

Oh come, come, little Bill, you are not going to sleaze your way out of this one so easily, you slimy little cuntmuppet..

You emphasised ad nauseum that the trend BEGAN under Carter. I agree with that. I said exactly that.

My point is, was, and remains, that looking at the graph, a gentle increase in inequality under Carter became a steep increase under Reagan, and that was a direct result of Reagan's fiscal policies.. Go back and look at the graph.

was that I should not blame Reagan for something that had begun under Carter. In other words you were blaming Carter for the increase in inequality that came after his presidency. So, long story short, it's not me that's lying - it's you.

As fucking usual.

Thanks to PurpleCow explaining it doesn't matter when it starts, it only matters if it gets worse under your watch.

Aren;t you people for ever telling us that negros have lower I.Q.s than white people? Many, many, of your racist buddies have been on this ver website denying that Field and Pilot are who they say they are. Look at the hatred your people have poured on a student doctor. How you tell her she will never be a doctor. I'm sure if `I look back on your history here I could probably found posts where you claim lower I.Q.'s for black folks.

So for you to come here with the sole intention of denigrating black people and then to claim hurt feelings when someone attacks yours is hypocrisy of the very highest order.

Even in a field of cunts, you are a cunt amongst cunts. A vile little man who has nothing better to do with his sorry ass life than take out the rage of your own failure and attempt to project your failure onto black men.

Well fuck right off whote boy, because I for one of sick of listening to you talk drivel.

Now why don't you run outside and get a job. Then learn some reason and logic, learn how to back up your arguments with evidence and see if you can't finally - finally - grow up to be a man.

Silly socialist goober. Purple cow gets caught in a lie, he tries to move the goal posts. Then purple cow screams "REAGAN!!!! REAGAN CAUSES ME BUTTHURT!!!!"

Income inequality began to raise in the early seventies. Income inequality is at its worst today.

Scholars differ on the causes.

But,but,but purple cow wants to blame REAGAN!!!!.

Purple cow is trying to cloak his Reagan hate using a bunch of cut and paste gibberish.



"How do you apply rational governance to people who reject rationality?'

The Purple Cow said...
My point is, was, and remains, that looking at the graph, a gentle increase in inequality under Carter became a steep increase under Reagan, and that was a direct result of Reagan's fiscal policies.. Go back and look at the graph.


Just like the gentle increase of unemployment under bush and the unemployment explosion under obama.

Look at the link to the government graph I supplied.

A direct result of obama's policies?

Ever roll a ball down a hill. That first push might not propel the ball down at speed, as the ball travels the speed increases.

The carter policies started to create inequality during his term, as time went the policy picked up speed and did more damage.

Kinda like what democrats say about the bush policies.

I'm just asking you to hold all presidents to the same standard.

No fair lowering the bar for democrat presidents.

How you tell her she will never be a doctor.

Another lie. Got link you lying cow?
I have never made a negative comment about the doctor and her career. I think I made a comment about her following her dreams being the reason her son was going to follow his and be an engineer.


I'm sure if `I look back on your history here I could probably found posts where you claim lower I.Q.'s for black folks.

In the absence of proof, just assume there is.
You are the poster child for left-wingnut stereotypes PurpleCow.

Psych 101- why do you keep telling someone that believes blacks are just as smart/stupid as whites about low black IQ? Who are you trying to convince?


So for you to come here with the sole intention of denigrating black people

Democrats used to call clinton the first black president. I didn't know carter was also black.
Thanks for the education PurpleCow.


and then to claim hurt feelings when someone attacks yours is hypocrisy of the very highest order.

I have no problem with PurpleCow using left-wing sources, facts are facts.

I just wish when PurpleCow uses those facts to say something and posts a graph proving it he doesn't then try and say what he said now means something different.

PurpleCow clearly admits income inequality started under carter but he blames reagan for it.


That's why I don';t mind those left-wing facts.

Purple Cow:

No, you simpleton, the rich get richer if wages are pushed down, no matter what the mechanism. Expanding the labor force pushes wages down.

"When I noted that there was no evidence that a surge of women entered the workforce in the 80’s and 90’s, he responded with a link to a graph that proved me right!!!"

No, I said the 70's and 80's. Look again. The steepest part of the curve is between 1970 and 1990, after which it levels off.

Misrepresenting what others say and deliberately drawing inaccurate conclusions is pathetic.

It is pointless arguing with a deluded sophist such as yourself. Your own words contradict your conclusions, but you are too stupid to notice. Your are a fantasist, who argues things you don't understand just to make yourself feel better about your empty life.

1. Even the steepest part of the curve does not show the massive inflow of female labour needed to drive down the hourly pay rates that you claim happened. An increase of just 23% of women in one age group over a 20 year period won;t cut it I'm afraid.

2. The graph only shows women between the ages of 25 and 54.

3. The graph does not show figures for WW2 and the immediate post-war years.

EPA Memo To Employees: Please Stop Pooping In The Hallway

This sure isn't:

EPA Refuses to Turn Over Subpoenaed Documents to Congress; Agency Explains That Some Subpoenaed Emails Were "Lost" In a "Hard Drive Crash" in 2010

While most of President Obama's Cabinet was touting the anniversary of President Obama's landmark speech in which he laid out plans to address climate change, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy was left facing a contempt threat from House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa....

The hearing also included a bit of deja vu for the committee when members grilled McCarthy on lost emails from a hard-drive crash (the same issue that wiped out emails from IRS employee Lois Lerner). In this case, the emails in question were from retired EPA employee Philip North, who was involved in the agency's decision to begin the process of preemptively vetoing the Pebble Mine project in Alaska.

North, who declined an interview request by the committee, is retired, and committee staff say they have been unable to track him down. According to a committee aide, North's hard drive crashed in 2010--which was around the same time that the committee is investigating the agency's discussions of a potential veto--and the emails were not backed up.


The brazen lawlessness of our federal agencies is breathtaking, is it not Field?

"Countrywide Broke the Law"

It would be easy to turn away from this and blame the borrowers. Some of the borrowers were absentee landlords who knew what they were doing. Some borrowers overreached. But in many cases, people were victimized by predatory lenders. For example, a complaint of alleged fraud against Goldman Sachs filed by Landesbank Baden-Wuerttemberg includes allegations of fraudulent practices by Countrywide, now owned by Bank of America.

Landesbank Baden-Wurttemberg (LBBW lost its appeal in the fraud lawsuit related to collateralized debt obligations backed chiefly by residential mortgages. LBBW is a sophisticated investor obliged to perform its own due diligence, and the court apparently held the view that LBBW's independent due diligence wasn't appropriate for the circumstances. In other cases, sophisticated investors have been able to win large settlements, since material information that only the underwriter knew was withheld from investors performing appropriate due diligence. Even diligent sophisticated investors can be defrauded when malefactors work hard enough at fraud.

As for the underlying mortgage loans, a former Countrywide employee stated that approximately 90 percent of all "liars' loans, loans that allowed reduced documentation about borrowers' income and assets, sold out of a Chicago office had inflated incomes.

In 2008, Countrywide settled a multi-state suit for over $8 billion, including a settlement with Illinois for predatory lending practices and alleged fraud. The borrowers weren't inflating the income. Countrywide allegedly routinely doubled the amount of the potential borrower's income to qualify borrowers for loans they couldn't afford so that Countrywide and its mortgage brokers could continue to earn fees and commissions.

Prior to Countrywide's paltry settlement with eleven states, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan stated: "Countrywide broke the law, homeowners did not."

Frank Rich of the NYT says this about the mortgage bubble scam: "What we don't know will hurt us, and quite possibly on a more devastating scale than any [Al] Qaeda attack. Americans must be told the full story of how Wall Street gamed and inflated the housing bubble, made out like bandits, and then left millions of households in ruin."

Yes, that's right. Bill here supports terrorists as bad as Al-Qaeda because conservatives in general are terrorist supporters, anti-American Christian Sharia jihadists fascists. Capital (one) Crimes; it's what's in Bill's wallet.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Millions of White House e-mails may be missing, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino acknowledged Friday.

"I wouldn't rule out that there were a potential 5 million e-mails lost," Perino told reporters.

The administration was already facing sharp questions about whether top presidential advisers including Karl Rove improperly used Republican National Committee e-mail that the White House said later disappeared.

The latest comments were a response to a new report from a liberal watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), alleging that over a two-year period official White House e-mail traffic for hundreds of days has vanished -- in possible violation of the federal Presidential Records Act. (Watch CREW's comments on the missing messages Video"

5 million lost email. That must be some kind of record but all lost email aren't equal to republicans.

Even worse, one of those bashing the the Obama administration was Fox News host Dana Perino who, at the time of the Bush email affair, was Bush’s press secretary and personally defended losing the emails."
