    Newsweek Magazine ^ | December 9, 2014 | Bernard J. Tyson, chairman and CEO, Kaiser Permanente.
    With the entire country seeing demonstrations following the Ferguson decision, I’ve had colleagues and business partners ask me my thoughts—not from my perspective as the chairman and CEO of a $55 billion organization—but as a black man in America. You would think my experience as a top executive would be different from a black man who is working in a retail or food-service job to support his family. Yet, he and I both understand the commonality of the black male experience that remains consistent no matter what the economic status or job title. This piece is not to complain about...
  • Piers Morgan says Anderson Cooper's poor ratings led to the cancellation of his CNN show

    10/04/2014 7:24:41 AM PDT · by smokingfrog · 56 replies
    Piers Morgan blames Anderson Cooper's show for Morgan’s awful talk series being canceled by CNN. "Could I have done with a better lead-in? Yes." Morgan tells Politico. "Anderson is a great field reporter, but does he drive big ratings at CNN, outside of a big news cycle? I don't see any evidence of it. And yet the whole bank was being bet on him at 8 and 10 o'clock." Morgan also throws his old CNN boss Jeff Zucker under the bus and pleads with Rupert Murdoch to give him a job. Morgan claims Zucker took his show away because there...

    FERUGUSON, Mo. — Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday told a group of black college students here that he had been a victim of racial profiling. Holder, who is in Ferguson as part of the Justice Department’s investigation of the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager, relayed a story about being stopped on the New Jersey Turnpike despite not breaking any laws. “He told the story about how he was humiliated. They got him out of his car and searched his car,” said Bradley J. Reyford, a 22-year-old student who met with Holder. Holder told the story to a...

    In 1968 when I enlisted, my enlistment contract guaranteed me that for the rest of my life I could be seen at any VA hospital or clinic for free for the rest of my life on a tier system. 1st. To be seen were service connected disabilities. 2nd to be seen were active duty personnel and their families. 3rd. And last to be seen were all other veterans. You could walk-in and wait and you may have to wait all day but you would be seen by a doctor. All medications were free at any veterans hospital or clinic, no...

    The closest Planned Parenthood to me is three hours. That's a lot of money in gas. Convenience food is just that. And we are not allowed many conveniences. Especially since the Patriot Act passed, it's hard to get a bank account. But without one, you spend a lot of time figuring out where to cash a check and get money orders to pay bills. Most motels now have a no-credit-card-no-room policy. I smoke. It's expensive. It's also the best option. You see, I am always, always exhausted. It's a stimulant.

    Ahh, yes. Halloween is just around the corner. Time for pumpkin carving, Trick-Or-Treating, and women dressed like two-dollar hookers wearing headdresses. What better way to celebrate the ancient pagan feast of Samhain, where the spirits of the dead roam free, than to wear slutty costumes that reduce people of other races to stereotypical hypersexualized caricatures. After all, why keep the embarrassment and denigration all to yourself? Wait…what? Lindsay Lohan said it best in Mean Girls: “Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything.” Say what you...

I get to see the doctor four times a year for a $30 co-pay, and I won’t have to spend the rest of my life working off the debt if I get hit by a bus. ....

Anthony Weiner resigned from Congress after being exposed for having a "sexting problem."

This mostly included returns on 'keywords' entered by posters, rather than posted text or comments. I performed the same search for the word "bombing" and stopped counting after 60. Most, if not all, of those are as a result of the use of the term in the headline or excerpt. I post this observation in the wake of remembrance of this administration being lambasted for labeling the Ft. Hood shootings as "workplace violence" vs. a "terrorist attack". A majority...

    Bill Bolling swears he hasn't decided whether he'll run for Governor of Virginia, but in a mostly one-sided conversation with WMAL's Mornings On The Mall Thursday, the incumbent Lt. Governor sounded an awful lot like a candidate aiming for middle-of-the-road votes. "There are a lot of what I'll call more 'mainstream' Republicans like me that are just not real happy with the current leadership and direction of our party," said Bolling. "I think in this particular race in Virginia this year, there's a lot of uneasiness out there with the candidates of both of the major political parties, so that...

    On Wednesday night, former president Bill Clinton gave a long-winded address (as is his wont — few like the sound of their own voice more than him, with the possible exception of Fidel Castro) in an attempt to make an excuse for the current president’s pathetic job performance on the economy. Here is the essence of his argument: President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did. No president — not me, not any of my predecessors — could have repaired all the damage in just four years. So is it true? Well, first of all, the statement...
