    An investment advisor mentioned to us in 2006 that we might consider moving some assets into a mutual fund that invested primarily in REITS. I did a little investigating and found that at the time the REIT that seemed to be the darling of the industry was run by a dominionist jerk who contributed heavily to right-wing causes and fired employees for not going to church. We decided to pass on the recommendation.

    @2 You run into the same shit with companies in stock investing, plus a raft of other, such as cooked books and environmental irresponsibility and new airplanes spontaneously combusting and so on, but at least you can get out of a stock with a mouse click or phone call. I suppose you could argue that gold does none of these things to you — it just sits there and shines.

    A bigger problem is what do you do if your job pays only $20,000 a year and you have no health or pension benefits? You become a 47-percenter, that’s what you do. Who created these
    47-percenters? People who vote for Democrats, or politicians who jam through “right to work” (for low wages) laws?

    Mother video tapes her 14 year old daughter having sex. What kind of person (heterosexual) are you for doing this?

    I posted about this yesterday. The perp (the mother) is a lawyer tied to a vicious anti-gay Christianist group. Puh-raiz JEEBUS!!

    RFK Jr.: Oswald Wasn’t Lone Gunman

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. yesterday appeared to endorse the theory that JFK’s assassination was a mob hit.

    “He said his father had investigators do research … and found that phone records of Oswald and nightclub owner Jack Ruby … ‘were like an inventory’ of mafia leaders the government had been investigating.

    According to Kennedy, his father kept quiet about the Warren report in public, but privately called it “shoddy.”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: The Warren report has generated skepticism from its release, and when you watch the Zapruder movie it does look like the second shot came from the direction of the grassy knoll.

    Unsolved History on the Discovery Channel a few years ago found some photos that might have proven something on the Grassy Knoll, but they could not determine what it was, because the photos were taken with either the wrong film, or wrong filter on the camera. They recreated the image with the same cameras with the right setting, and there stand-in was visible. They also deduced that in one picture there was another person with a camera who had not come forward, and whatever they saw, could be the thing that solves the mystery This particular documentary aired about a decade ago.

    The NRA was for gun regulation, when it applied to scary black people.

    During that time, the NRA and conservative politicians such as California Governor Ronald Reagan supported gun control as a means of restoring social order, and getting weapons out of the hands of radical, left-leaning and revolutionary groups, particularly the Black Panther Party.

    Beginning in 1966, the Panthers carried out police patrols, in which they rushed to the scene of an arrest with their loaded weapons publicly displayed, and notified those being arrested of their constitutional rights. California state legislator Don Mulford introduced a bill to repeal the state law allowing citizens to carry loaded guns in public if they were openly displayed. Mulford had the Panthers in mind with this legislation.

    On May 2, 1967, a group of Black Panthers protested the bill by walking into the California State Capitol Building fully armed. In response, the legislature passed the Mulford Act. (The Mulford Act was a 1967 California bill prohibiting the public from carrying of loaded firearms.) And Gov. Reagan, who was a major proponent of disarming the Panthers, signed the bill into law, effectively neutralizing the Panther Police Patrols.

    So when black people displayed their guns, it was bad and must be banned. When white tea baggers display their guns, it’s their 2nd amendment right.
    This makes no sense.

    PuddyIdiot once lauded Colin Powell as a “man of integrity”..

    Huh.. Why’s he saying this?

    “There’s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party,” Powell said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “What do I mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities.”

    Heh. Moot point I know.. Puddyfool ejected himself from the game or someone had him committed.

    New report on climate change coming out. A sample:

    Climate change is definitely caused by human activities. Always nice to hear government officials acknowledge this essential fact. And the report concedes that our only hope of curbing warming is to kick our addiction to greenhouse-gas spewing fossil fuels.

    Extreme weather is increasing, and that’s our fault, too. In particular, searing temperatures, heavy rain, and prolonged drought.

    Weather isn’t the only threat we have to worry about. The list sounds like the side-effect warnings at the end of a prescription drug commercial: decreased air quality, insect-borne diseases, and “threats to mental health” are all on the docket for the coming decades.

    Our infrastructure is getting hammered, and we’re not spending enough to save it. Floods are destroying farmland; extreme heat is damaging roads, rail lines, and airports; and military installations are at risk.

    What will right wing idiots do? Deny reality as they’ve always done? Seems likely to me..

    I hope I’m wrong.. We may have run out of time.

    Of course the baggers amoung us claim we’re taxed enough already.

    I’ve said many times, when Tea Baggers claim to be “taxed enough already,” they’re not talking about their wallets.

    @24. In about 10 years, they will be the people blaming everyone else for the climate and saying why didn’t anyone do anything when we had the time!

    PS. IMHO. We have run out of time. I think we passed the tipping point about 10 years back.

    @31 We execute people all the time. so what? In the time it took me to write this, Texas killed 3 or 4 mentally challenged and or innocent women and men that were on Death Row. Are you objecting to her being killed for killing the baby, or the way she was killed?
    It’s like right-to-work laws. You don’t like the conditions, don’t work there.
