    Remember that little story? On March 28th of this year, a scene between two students at San Francisco State University went viral overnight. Corey Goldstein, an student, was walking through the corridors on his way to the next class, when he was confronted by Bonita Tindle, a girl he had seen but didn't know. Bonita didn't like that Corey, a young man of jewish ancestry, had chosen to style his long brown hair into dreadlocks. Somehow, Bonits had it in her mind that dreadlocks were the exclusive province of black people to wear. Her thought was anyone not black or...
  • General David Petraeus Forming Gun Control Group with Mark Kelly

    06/11/2016 8:56:27 AM PDT · by rktman · 61 replies ^ | 6/10/2016 | AWR Hawkins
    General David Petraeus is forming a gun control group with Gabby Gifford’s husband Mark Kelly. The goal of the group will be to push national adoption of the same universal background checks that have failed in California, Colorado, Washington state, and Paris. In fact, Petraeus will be pushing the same background checks that Giffords’ attacker passed in order to acquire the gun he used to wound her on January 8, 2011. According to The Hill, Kelly announced the launch of the group by talking about military members’ commitment to “protect our constitution and homeland.” He suggested political leaders now need...

    Selling a used, black-and-white printer through Craigslist seemed simple and straightforward to Doug Costello. It wasn't. What the 66-year-old Massachusetts man didn't know then is that he would spend the next 6 ˝ years embroiled in a complicated and confusing legal dispute in Indiana over that printer, which, according to its buyer, was broken.

    As GOP presidential candidate former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is cancelling TV ad time, he used an interview with National Pubic Radio to reveal his wife Columba's guacamole recipe. NPR's report titled, "Finally Revealed: Jeb Bush's Secret Guacamole Recipe," teases the recipe by revealing Bush previously spoke about the guacamole at the Iowa Agriculture Summit and sold "Guaca Bowls" in his campaign shop. "Bush hadn't given up that recipe ... until now," NPR reveals.

Bieber was allegedly rushed by someone — possibly an overeager fan — on the dance floor at a downtown Toronto nightclub early Saturday around 3 a.m., when he left a designated VIP area. Joallore Alon, 40, said he was at Uniun Nightclub on Adelaide St. W., near Portland St., when Bieber and his entourage showed up around 2 a.m. “From the back entrance, they came in and stayed for a bit,” Alon said Saturday evening. “He took off his shirt and...

    Conservatives are having a laugh after it surfaced that the official presidential biographies on the White House website have been updated to inject President Obama into history. But kidding aside, this is a truly disgraceful behavior. In the most egregious example, noted by the Heritage Foundation's Rory Cooper, the official Ronald Reagan biography is appended with the note: "In a June 28, 1985 speech Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multi-millionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffet Rule." (Over at Commentary,...

    It's often remarked that President Obama has enjoyed a number of getaways, vacations, and mini-vacations during his 20 months in office. But at a Democratic fundraiser Thursday night, the president said, "I'd appreciate a little break." The fundraiser -- $30,400 per person -- was at the home of Linda Douglass, the former CBS and ABC News reporter who joined the Obama White House to sell national health care to a skeptical public. Douglass is now a top executive at Atlantic Media, the Washington-based company that runs The Atlantic, National Journal, and other publications. Douglass' husband, John Phillips, is a wealthy...

The unemployment rate could reach double digits. Our economy could fall $1 trillion short of its full capacity, which translates into more than $12,000 in lost income for a family of four,” Obama will say during an address at George Mason University, according to prepared remarks...

But he warned that if the United States did not sign the agreements, a carbon tax across Europe on imports from nations that have not signed the Kyoto treaty...

Officials described how the demise of the communist dictator could spark their worst nightmares — either a flood of Cuban refugees heading in makeshift boats toward Florida's beaches or a flotilla of Cuban exiles taking off to help liberate Cuba. Anti-Castro Cuban-Americans began planning champagne parties, while local police prepared to close thoroughfares in the event people began to dance in the streets. The expectation of Mr. Castro's...

However, conservative Christians, before rushing to condemn or defend their fallen hero, might ponder the incident for a moment, before presuming to form an opinion. To give credit where it is due, Zev Chafets, in his LA Times commentary “Slurring More than His Words”, makes several valuable points. To begin with, Mr. Gibson’s first line of defense—the Tequila made him do it—is absurd. As Chafets commnts, “Evidently Gibson wants people to believe that, although he personally loves Jews, the...

    WASHINGTON - The economy’s growth slowed sharply in the second quarter, logging just a 2.5 percent pace as consumers tightened their belts and spending on home building dived. Inflation, however, shot up. The latest snapshot of gross domestic product released by the Commerce Department on Friday showed that the overall pace of economic activity in the April-to-June quarter was less than half that of the January-to-March quarter, when the economy zipped along at a 5.6 percent annual rate, the fastest in 2 1/2 years.

    WASHINGTON - Sales of new homes fell in June for the first time in four months, and the government also lowered figures for May, providing further evidence the high-flying housing market is losing altitude. The Commerce Department reported Thursday that new home sales fell 3 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual sales pace of 1.131 million units. It was the first decline since an 11.5 percent drop in February. The government also cut its estimate of sales activity in May to a pace of 1.166 million units, substantially below its initial estimate of 1.234 million units.

Needless to say, Rall (who himself has created bigoted trash in the past) defended Toles' cruel piece. Here's the relevant exchange (audiotape on file,...

"They should value the lives of people in large cities," he said during a City Hall news conference, quoted by the Chicago Tribune. "We need the same protection as Washington,...
