About Me

I'm so tired of the right-wing being hateful, cruel, spiteful, dishonest, and attacking everyone who is not like them. I am a voice in the wilderness of a red city deep within a red state, surrounded by the hate of the GOP.

  3. 15 Questions for Darren Wilson, Or What The Grand Jury Should Ask Officer Darren Wilson

    thepoliticalfreakshow:

    While leaks from the federal investigation of police officer Darren Wilson’s shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, August 9 are starting to appear, concerned citizens in Ferguson and beyond have a plethora of unanswered questions they’d love ask to Wilson—not only about his mindset, but his actions the day Brown was killed. To begin, here are 15 questions:

    1. When your SUV pulled up alongside Mike Brown and Dorian Johnson as they were walking along Canfield Drive, did you tell them to "get the fuck on the sidewalk?"

    2. When you pulled away from Brown and Johnson on Canfield Drive, why exactly did you decide to put your SUV in reverse to confront them again? Your chief says you did not know about the earlier convenience store incident where it is alleged Mike Brown stole some cigars. Was it to express your anger that they didn’t obey your earlier command to “get the fuck on the sidewalk?”

    3. Four eyewitnesses report seeing and hearing your tires screech as you violently put your SUV in reverse on Canfield Drive, nearly hitting Brown and Johnson. Why did you reverse in such a reckless and provocative manner?

    4. When you arrived back at where Brown and Johnson stood, if you did not know about the store incident, why exactly did you open your door to confront them? Did you intend to arrest them for jaywalking?

    5. Precisely how far away was your door from Brown and Johnson when you flung it open?

    6. Did you believe Brown or Johnson were armed at any point during your confrontation?

    7. Reports have surfaced that you told federal investigators that you were repeatedly punched and scratched by Brown through your SUV window. Why did you not see the medic who arrived on the crime scene? Why do no photos or videos or eyewitness reports from the scene have evidence of even a shadow of an injury, or you touching or favoring any injury?

    8. It’s been reported that you claim that Brown “went for, or lunged for,” your gun. Was this when the gun was within inches of his face before you fired two shots at him through your window and hit him with one?

    9. After you shot Brown through your window, he fled over 100 feet away from your SUV. Did you still feel threatened while you chased him down Canfield Drive with your gun drawn and firing, according to witnesses, at least six shots?

    10. Six eyewitnesses saw you fire multiple shots at the back of Brown while he fled down Canfield Drive. Was it your intention to arrest or kill him with those shots?

    11. When you fired your eighth shot of the day, four eyewitnesses said they saw Brown’s body jerk before he turned around to surrender to you. Did you believe you hit him again, for the second time, with your eighth shot?

    12. Six eyewitnesses say that they saw Brown turn around and physically and verbally surrender to you. How did you interpret those actions?

    13. Before you fired the two fatal shots into Brown’s eye and the crown of his head, as he was falling down, you had shot him a total of four times already. Did you still believe him to be a threat to you at that point?

    14. No record exists of you ever radioing in for backup or support at any time. Did you use your cell phone to call for backup? Who else did you call and why?

    15. Who first told you not to create a report after you shot and killed Brown, and what reason did they give you for such a request?

  4. Chris Christie Is So Tired Of Hearing About The Minimum Wage

    Chris Christie Is So Tired Of Hearing About The Minimum Wage

    Aww! Isn’t that sweet? Chris Christie wants parents to have higher aspirations for their kids than just minimum wage, mostly because he’s so eager to do the bidding of the Kochs:

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Tuesday that he’s “tired” of hearing discussion on the minimum wage and seemed to suggest that a higher minimum wage isn’t something to “aspire to.”

    "I gotta tell you the truth, I’m tired of hearing about the minimum wage, I really am," Christie said during an event at the Chamber of Commerce in Washington, according to a recording of his remarks by the liberal opposition research group American Bridge.

    "I don’t think there’s a mother or father sitting around a kitchen table tonight in America who are saying, ‘You know honey, if my son or daughter could just make a higher minimum wage, my God, all our dreams would be realized," he added. "Is that what parents aspire to for their children?"

    The governor went on to say that parents aspire to an America where their children can make more money and achieve greater success, according to The Hill. He said those aspirations weren’t about a “higher minimum wage.”

  6. Senior Regulator Says Bank CEOs Meant Well. Documents Say Otherwise

    crooksandliars:

    The head of one of Wall Street’s most important regulatory agencies argued recently that big-bank CEOs never intended to break the law or engage in foreclosure fraud. Instead, Thomas Curry of the Office of Comptroller of the Currency tells us they weren’t cautious enough.Internal documents obtained from a bank-backed venture several years ago seem to directly contradict this claim. These documents, which include training materials, PowerPoint presentations and videos, suggest that the industry made a conscious attempt to bypass local jurisdictions and automate processes – in what can best be described as a fraud-friendly way.

    As Comptroller of the Currency, Curry runs one of the agencies charged with keeping our banking system safe, ethical and crime-free. It’s not an enviable task, but it’s critical to the safety of our economy. So it should have received more attention when Curry wrote in an industry publication that Wall Street suffered, not from a shortage of ethics, but from an inadequate “risk culture.”

    Curry’s perspective differs markedly from those of leading figures like William Dudley, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, who said last year that ”there is evidence of deep-seated cultural and ethical failures at many large financial institutions.”

    Wrote Curry:

  8. "If those of you here today as stewards of these large financial institutions do not do your part in pushing forcefully for change across the industry, then bad behavior will undoubtedly persist. If that were to occur, the inevitable conclusion will be reached that your firms are too big and complex to manage effectively. …

    I reject the narrative that the current state of affairs is simply the result of the actions of isolated rogue traders or a few bad actors within these firms. The problems originate from the culture of the firms, and this culture is largely shaped by the firms’ leadership."

    We have to get a grip. Ebola is not a crisis in the United States. One person has died and two people are infected with his body fluids.

Canada is doing what the U.S. hasn’t to fight Ebola 

The United Nations and World Health Organization have called upon the international community to step up efforts to battle the rapidly spiraling Ebola crisis. And while countries such as Cuba have responded by sending additional medical personnel to the front lines, Canada is addressing the epidemic in a more direct way: developing an experimental Ebola vaccine for clinical trials in humans.
This is something the U.S. has failed to do | Follow micdotcom



Because the Greedy Obstructionist Plutocrats in Congress think it’s a Socialist plot to destroy ‘Murica and it might help people.

Something isn’t right here… Along with eliminating health benefits for part-time employees, Walmart is also increasing health insurance premiums for its entire workforce next year.

And with Humana Walmart Part D, and “Oct 6, 2014 - America’s largest retailer is expanding more aggressively into the insurance market, hoping to become the go-to place for all your health care …”, Building a trapped market.  The old company store ploy.

“People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you.You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity. F*ck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head. “You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.” -#Banksy
