Open thread.

MORE DISCLAIMERSThe Mrs. and I visited The Museum of African American History Culture yesterday in D.C., and it was a wonderful and educational experience. The Mrs struggled with some parts of it more than I did, because she is a child of the South, and some of the harsh realities of the nation's history was hard for her to take. 

I would like to give a shout out to the folks in D.C., who always show us love every time we come through. I always enjoy spending time in The DMV.  

So today is the 4th of July, America's birthday, and I have to tell you, given all that's going on, I don't feel like doing too much celebrating. 

Anyway, it's open thread night, so in your own words please tell us what this day means to you.

As a veteran of a number of this country's military adventures, and a survivor of it's many attempts to erase my existence over the last 5+ decades, I can say with complete sincerity that this day means nothing to me.
It's just another day.

Back in 1974 we had Kathryn&Duffy&the Enemies List on the radio singing "Nixon's the One" and now we have Randy Rainbow on YouTube singing "WTF You Guys" which is fucking brilliant, so I guess in some ways progress has been made:

This day means that I am a citizen of the greatest military power on earth, and one cannot help but be proud to be a part of. It means that my dad fought in the Korean war, to help maintain this country as the great empire it is. It means my family and I have worked in society to make and keep it that way, of course I'm proud!

It also means that as a minority person I have felt the harsh and cutting sting of discrimination against me by the privileged white class. It also means that...

From Juanita Jean's blog today. Arrest and imprison treasonous stoopid fucking wingnuts in Russia for aiding and abetting Putie Pie.


United States Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama, speaking about the trip to Russia with secret meetings …

“We could be competitors—we are competitors. But we don’t necessarily need to be adversaries,” Shelby added.

They stole our damn election. And the United States Senate admits it. You know, the same United States senate where Richard Shelby tells people he works.

The Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday backed the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election to aid President Donald Trump and is continuing its efforts to undermine U.S. democracy.

They can. I do it every day. The trick to it is not being an asshole.

"When is the left gonna learn society doesn't accept their violence and hatred?"

Yeah, our violence and hatred wants you to have health insurance so we're dangerous... why, exactly?

I guess good day/bad day. Pruitt is gone and we have to wait until the next Once-ler comes along to destroy the environment and sadly Ed Schultz died. He was one of my favorite radio hosts and was the anti-Rush. He was truly about the working woman and man and had a feature on his show on Fridays when small business owners would call in and get free publicity for their businesses. I actually called in and promoted my simulator training business. Really radio show host and even better person.

I wonder which scandal was the one that broke the camel's back.

PilotX- does your simulator simulate a DC-10 losing all hydraulic lines like UNited 232 29 years ago. The one that almost made a landing at Soo Gateway in Sioux Rity?

Just curious because there has been a re-creation video on the net of the struggles the pilots and crew went through just to get that close to safety.

Pruitt was getting more attention than Fergus, and that shit is not allowed. Which is kinda dumb given the effort they are investing in distraction, but kinda dumb is par for the course there.

At least it probably makes his appointment as AG less likely, but you never know with Fergus.

Trump is creating a “denaturalization task force” to revoke the citizenship of those he and his racist buddies have decided do not deserve it, and then deport them.

"I wonder which scandal was the one that broke the camel's back."

I don’t know.

Maybe it was when Pruitt forced his staffers to put his business travel on their personal credit cards — and then refused to pay them back?

Or maybe it was when he tried to leverage his position to get his wife a job she did not deserve?

Or the taxpayer money he spent on “tactical pants”?

Or ... you know what, the list is way too long to guess which of his shamelessly greedy acts got him fired. The guy was a straight-up grifter who stole anything that wasn’t nailed down.

But then again, so is the president who appointed him. What, you thought the biggest and baddest of the swamp dwellers would “drain the swamp”? The swamp is Trump’s natural habitat.

Said "do-gooder" walked into the path of a driver who had changed lanes to avoid him.

Definitely an idiot, and that is a trait associated with n1663rs.

mike from iowa said...

So wasicu slowed from 55 to 53.5 and was going too fast to avoid the black guy. Gotcha. Any driver not of the wasicu racist bent would have slowed down enough to brake to a stop before killing a person.

I guarantee if the situation was reversed, there would have been numerous charges such as failure to stop in an assured clear distance, reckless and careless driving, driving too fast for the road conditions and probably intentional vehicular homicide plus driving while Black.

The fact there was an accident at all meant there should have been some charge filed. White privilege. That the little honky fucker bragged about it shows clear intent to do bodily injury.

Of course an all wasicu jury would have blamed the Black guy.

White Privilege example #293 said...

Being blamed if you don't watch for traffic when you walk into a roadway, but for hitting a Black pedestrian who recklessly walks into your path as a driver, is White Privilege.

I wanted to comment on recent events of Mexicans being sent back. Some feelings are mixed as most are good folks to provide services no one else will do. My issue with black getting upset is most Mexicans don't like blacks, they can be just as racist as whites. In the rankings they are probably 4th or 5th behind what whites, asians, middle eastern, people from India then Mexicans. So black people stop fighting for the cause of others and fight for your own.
