    Huffington Post ^ | 11-25-2014 | Nicole Breedlove
    Thanksgiving has never been a celebratory holiday in my family. Whenever my family did cook we always gave thanks that all the Native Americans weren't wiped out when Columbus "discovered" America. My teachers made it seem like Thanksgiving was a holiday to look forward to. The New York City public education system told me what Thanksgiving was all about. I was very careful to regurgitate what they taught me when tested so I wouldn't get a failing grade. When I was older though I was told the truth by my family. Whenever someone asked what I was doing for Thanksgiving...
  • Labour MP: Beat gridlock with a ban on owning a car and force motorists to share vehicles (UK)

    Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 05:46 EST, 13 September 2014 | (MailOnline Reporter)
    Owning a car should be “outlawed” to force people on to public transport, a senior Labour MP has suggested. Motorists who want to drive should instead be forced to join communal “car clubs” where the cars are shared by drivers and used only when needed. Dr. Alan Whitehead, a Labour MP for Southampton Test and a member of the Energy and Climate Change select committee, said the increase in car ownership would lead to “something approaching a national traffic jam before 2040”. He claimed that radical action would be needed to avoid national gridlock. …

    Los Angeles Times ^ | June 30, 2014 | by Michael Hiltzik
    In its decision Monday in the Hobby Lobby case, the conservative Supreme Court majority that upheld corporations' religious objections to birth control spends an inordinate amount of time defending itself from the reasoning and wrath of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's dissent. Justice Samuel Alito, whose name is on the decision, alludes no fewer than 24 times to the "principal dissent," which Ginsburg wrote for the four-member minority. Plainly, he felt Ginsburg's powerful intellect breathing down his neck as he tried to find a path to upholding the Hobby Lobby parties' attack on women's rights without expanding corporate "personhood" too much....

    <p>To avoid dangerous climate change and limit global warming to below 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit above the level of preindustrial times – a target endorsed by the international community and the United States – global greenhouse gas emissions need to be reduced by 80 to 90 percent by the second half of this century. But even eliminating all carbon dioxide emissions from the energy and transportation sectors may not be enough to reach that target because greenhouse gases from food and agriculture, mainly nitrous oxide from agricultural soils and methane from livestock, will be too large.</p>

    An email sent to students by a University of Maryland official that cites the Trayvon Martin shooting as evidence "it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida" is being blasted as the latest evidence of a left-wing bias on campus. The email, from William Dorland, director of the school's Honors College, starts by welcoming students back to campus, but then quickly veers into politics. "This year, we learned that it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida," it reads, in a reference to the trial of George Zimmerman, who was cleared of...

    The bicyclist doesn’t remember seeing the youths run at him as he pedaled home late Tuesday afternoon on the Metropolitan Branch Trail, but he certainly recalls one knocking him off his bike and at least a dozen others piling on, punching and kicking him in the head. What the 37-year-old can’t understand is why they did it. They didn’t take his $500 bicycle. They ignored his cellphone. They didn’t want the $20 in his wallet. In fact, the victim said, “I didn’t hear a word.” And the lack of apparent motive is haunting the married father of two, who uses...

    The more militant members of the N.R.A. and most of its leaders may be un-American. By “militant” I don’t mean those who wish to protect recreational shooting and hunting; nor do I mean those who, like Justice Antonin Scalia, believe that there is a constitutional right to defend one’s home and family with firearms. These are respectable positions (although I am deeply unpersuaded by the second). I mean those who read the Second Amendment as proclaiming the right of citizens to resist the tyranny of their own government, that is, of the government that issued and ratified the Constitution in...

    As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.---- .....“White privilege is knowing that even if the bomber turns out to be white, no one will call for your...

    I came of age when the word “drive-by” entered the American lexicon. By high school graduation, I lost one cousin to gun violence and another was incarcerated for a gun crime. I know many harmed by guns and even more who feared the possibility. I always wonder if, but for the Second Amendment, there would be a more radical commitment to compromise and peacefully working through easy and difficult issues. In writing the Second Amendment, the Framers didn't envision the kind of gun toting that is permitted across this country today.... I am not naïve enough to believe that doing...

    In a tough year for Senate campaigns, Democrats will take everything they can get. This year's map of Senate races heavily favors the GOP, which will defend only 10 seats to Democrats' 23. Six Democratic incumbents have declined to run, and Democrats will have to defend seats in 11 competitive races, while Republicans will only defend in five. All of which makes Sen. Dick Lugar's loss welcome news for Democrats, who seem to have figured all along that their candidate, Blue Dog Rep. Joe Donnelly, would fare better against Tea Party-backed, Saran Palin-endorsed state Treasurer Richard Mourdock in November. Now...

    This week, Sarah Palin stoked a late, brief flurry of speculation that she might enter the 2012 presidential race. I wont try to predict the former Alaska governor's decision. But I will predict this: If Palin does enter the race, she won't be any kind of factor. Over the past three years, Palin has systematically laid waste to the basis for a presidential campaign. By her own words and actions, she has discredited herself and alienated her one-time supporters. But before Palin vanishes into her hard-earned obscurity, Republicans need an assessment and an accounting. Had John McCain won in 2008,...

    Most Americans are not quite sure what to make of the sprawling right-wing Tea Party, which gradually emerged in 2009 and became a household name after it held nationwide Tea Party rallies on April 15, 2010, to protest paying taxes. Throwing tea overboard, as you may remember, is an important symbolic image of the colonial anger at Britain's policy of "taxation without representation." Many liberals and leftists dismissed the Tea Party as a temporary, knee-jerk response to the recession, high employment, home foreclosures, bankruptcies, and an African American president who had saved American capitalism by expanding the government's subsidies to...

Now, in all likelihood, the U.S. is not going to be in a position to win...

From February 12, the show will air at 11.35, not 10pm. Maher said the president’s new populist tone worried him. “He’s not a populist,” Maher told his host, “he’s an elitist, that’s what I like about him – he’s smarter than the rest of us.” Maher criticized Obama’s trip around the country where he is taking on the middle class concerns about jobs. “He’s demanding to see his own...

    Like any good protest, last week’s complaints came in a variety of shapes and sizes and were expressed at varying levels of volume. At the center of it all, at the Tax Day protests, was the heart of not a political movement as had been advertised, but a political party. Organizers of the Tea Bag protests were quick to point out that the protests themselves were spontaneous, non-partisan demonstrations of taxpayer anger over what they called excessive taxation and reckless government spending. Like all shots taken quickly, they missed, although that was almost certainly intentional. The protesters were almost universally...

Do you remember how overbearing, intimidating and feared Sen. Joseph McCarthy became before his crudities and chilling attacks on patriotic citizens was stopped? The rise of Hitler came about through use of the same strident, rancorous and dangerous appeal to a populace who had suffered military defeat and in times of embarrassment for their loss of economic power – how the Germans suffered because of inflation...

    FaithSats and Lunar Crucifices If only rhetoric could fuel spaceships. by Greg Zsidisin Los Angeles CA (SPX) Nov 22, 2004 It's time that we put a giant crucifix in lights on the Moon! Congress has just pushed through a $388 billion spending bill. Into it was snuck a funding increase for NASA to accommodate George W. Bush's plan to return astronauts to the Moon. This puts Bush's vaunted space plan on par with other such last-minute additions as one removing previous barriers to government funding of anti-abortion doctors. It also serves as another reward to Senator Tom DeLay (R-Texas), whom...

    ~snip~Well, at least, nobody has been arrested — so far. Consider the plight of an anti-Bushie in Washington state: "Dear Larry, "Last Thursday I put out one of my Bush/Cheney signs in my front yard. Between midnight and 3 a.m. someone stole it. On Friday night I put out sign No. 2. Since I didn't have to get up early, I thought my dog and I would "stake out" our sign. This time I put the sign a little closer to the gate leading to my backyard. With my dog on an extra long leash, I planted myself on a...

    After weeks in which the political discourse was nearly dominated by the scrutinizing of Sen. John F. Kerry's conduct in the Vietnam War era, President Bush now may find himself under the microscope and on the defensive for actions in his past. Kerry supporters are actively questioning Bush's spotty record as a stateside National Guardsmen during the Vietnam War. A former senior politician in Texas is telling people he pulled strings to get Bush into the guard. And an Associated Press investigation has concluded that key documents that should have been written to explain gaps in Bush's guard service are...

    CARTER'S REMARKS TO THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION, BOSTON Mon Jul 26 2004 19:45:57 ET My name is Jimmy Carter, and I'm not running for president. But here's what I will be doing: everything I can to put John Kerry in the White House with John Edwards right there beside him. Twenty-eight years ago I was running for president, and I said then, "I want a government as good and as honest and as decent and as competent and as compassionate as are the American people." I say this again tonight, and that is exactly what we will have next January...

    SEATTLE, WA (Talon News) -- After a liberal radio talk show host was confirmed calling for the death of President George W. Bush and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld for "war crimes," he is now resorting to personal attacks against "reactionary right wing" web sites as well as the Talon News correspondent who exposed him. Talon News reported last Thursday (see original story) that a listener to The Mike Webb Show, which airs from 10:00 p.m.-1:00 a.m. on 710 AM KIRO in Seattle, Washington, said that Webb had "called for the death of President Bush and Secretary Rumsfeld for 'war...

    By now most know that Fox News is suing Al Franken for his use of the "Fair and Balanced" slogan. (stealing is nothing new for liberals). In light of this news, I have to wonder why liberals would think that Al should be their point man to counter so-called conservative media....I mean this is THE guy who almost, by his obnoxious untalented self, got Saturday Night Live canceled. Can ANYONE remember ONE funny line, ONE funny sketch, ONE witty comment by this sloth?

    On election day, California reaffirmed its leadership in guiding freedom-loving Americans into the new millennium when we chose to continue on our Democratic path. While the southern Confederacy, with Texas in the lead, has risen again and won the latest battle, California still fights for the Union cause. We will be victorious because we represent the true American way. We are upholding American ideals of fair compensation for hard work, respect for the environment, equality and free choice for women, and for that matter, democracy for all free Americans. As the richest state and potentially the world's fifth richest country,...
