    RE: Anti-gay amendment “protecting” the Caucasian race… so basically she and her husband believe that every white male and female would choose to marry a same-sex partner? I’d say that says a lot more about their sexual preference and marriage than maybe they want to be letting people know.

    Arizona Bans Funding To Planned Parenthood

    “Arizona Governor Jan Brewer on Friday signed into law a bill banning abortion providers like Planned Parenthood from receiving money through the state, her office said in a statement. …

    “Arizona does not provide tax dollars for abortion, but backers said the law is needed to make sure that no indirect monies are funneled to organizations like Planned Parenthood that provide abortion and other health services. …

    “But officials at Planned Parenthood Arizona … said the law means that thousands of women in the state may now go without life-saving cancer screenings … and basic health care.”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: The GOP’s solution to women killing babies is to make sure women die before they can have babies.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    For what it’s worth, Gov. Brewer’s son was found not guilty of rape by reason of insanity, and is confined in a state mental hospital. I wonder if he gets better food because his mom is the governor?

    On the other hand, she seems like the type that would stick her own son in a privatized prison or mental hospital where they boost profits by skimping on the inmates’ food.

    Somehow this was missed on the Friday Night Funny Pages.

    The truth is never told by the slobbering libtardo media:

    Republicans are right: The White House is greatly exaggerating when it says that “women, in particular,” benefit from a prevention fund that the House GOP proposes to repeal. The truth is that the fund in question wasn’t set up specifically for women’s health programs, and we could find no concrete evidence that it has paid anything to gender-specific health programs so far.

    For example, the fund has paid for programs to discourage tobacco use, encourage physical fitness, and prevent heart disease and cancer — for both sexes. And House Speaker John Boehner is correct when he says the White House itself has proposed cutting this very same fund. The president’s fiscal 2013 budget proposes to slash $4 billion from the fund over 10 years. Furthermore, in February, Democrats agreed to a $5 billion cut in the fund to help pay for extending a payroll tax cut and delaying a reduction in Medicare payment to physicians. That bill passed with bipartisan support.

    And last but not least… we know why the unemployment rate keeps dropping…

    In April the number of people not in the labor force rose by a whopping 522,000 from 87,897,000 to
    88,419,000. This is the highest on record. The flip side, and the reason why the unemployment dropped to 8.1% is that the labor force participation rate just dipped to a new 30 year low of 64.3%.

    As part of the exhibits filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in today’s sentencing of Harry Thomas Jr., we learn a little bit more about where the disgraced former Ward 5 councilmember spent more than $350,000 of public money he stole.

    Link is to “ACLJ” – American Center for Law and Justice – with an acronym startlingly, perhaps confusingly, close to the leftist bastion ACLU. Hmmm, wonder why they did that?

    Anyway, the ACLJ is the family business of right-wing partisan hack Jay Sekulow. You’ll note from the Wikipedia page that Sekulow is a graduate of the “Regen University” law school, that institution that gave us Gov. Bob McDonnell and the infamous Monica Goodling. He’s a frequent partisan on Fox, and in fact, the home page of the ACLJ shows a screenshot of one of the FoxNoise Barbi dolls with the quote, “Critics: Sebalius has no clue about HC legal issues”

    Liberal Scientist is a slut who occasionally wears a hoodie spews:

    I was thinking about puddles the other day (yeah, I know, kinda weird), and how he professes outrage at African American poverty (appropriate) but blames leftist policies as the root cause (as if actual leftist policies have ever been enacted in this country).

    I was trying to think through how he gets from being offended at poverty, particularly African American poverty, a response I share with him, to an embrace of right-wing economic policy.

    That the capitalist system we have, built on a society that seems irredeemably racist, would yield masses of structurally impoverished people, and that certain particularly oppressed groups – people of color, women, sexual minorities – are disproportionately disadvantaged, seems obvious.

    What I don’t get is how he gets from there to an embrace of the most doctrinaire neoconservatism, an analysis and thought process that is savagely dedicated to preserving white male capitalist power, dedicated to a society of oligarchical “Haves” with masses of cheap/free labor commoditized “Have-Nots”. How does he get to allegiance with the people dedicated to massive incarceration rates, particularly among African American men? How does he form this rather rabid bond with the folks who executed the Southern Strategy, winning power by winning over (and ultimately being captive to) the Southern racists?

    How does this happen?

    Religion.

    My theory is that an embrace of a fringy-fundamentalist religiosity, demanding the most science-denying beliefs and a posture of persecution and victimhood, leads necessarily to an embrace of right-wing political thought. It’s a kind of tribalism. To sit in a pew, or wherever, and espouse denials of evolution, of climate science, of cosmology, to construct the belief that literal mountains of data regarding the fossil record, biology, stellar evolution, red-shifts, acidic oceans, and on and on, are all tricks by the devil to confuse us humans, or tricks by God to challenge faith in the 6000-year-old universe, leads one to, I would say, insanity.

    To hold those beliefs seems to yield a defensive hatred of those the believe in data, in science, in empiric understanding of our world. That sense of defensiveness, of victimhood, yields fertile ground for reactionary thinking, for embrace of right-wing thought. Moreover, the peddlers of Dominionist thinking, that God ™ is returning in “Clouds O’Glory”, are universally aligned with the Republican party. It’s tribalism again.

    And as we’ve seen here over and over, there’s no discussion, no exchange of ideas, no agreement even on basic facts. I’m not sure that a society such divided is even governable.

    According to the Tacoma paper’s editorial board:

    TransCanada, the company behind the Keystone XL, has come up with a new plan that would route the line around the Sandhills region and Ogallala reservoir in Alaska; opponents had focused much of their rhetoric on the threat of spills in those areas.

    @ 23

    Hasn’t that always been the purpose of religion? Blind faith only means unquestioning obedience in all things. There is a large segment of the human population that demands to be ruled, and commanded. They obey, thats what they were taught to do from the time of their birth. They obey, they obey the rantings of an alcoholic or schizophrenic parent. They submit to the will of the loudest, most violent people in the room or the people who tell them what they should always be afraid of. As adults, they obey the ravings of an angry, violent individual or a sociopathic preacher or political leader who presents the same personality characteristics as that parent. Ted Nugent as an example, presents the adult characteristics of a kid who was severely psychologically abused as a child.

    Such people demand that someone tell them what to do, now, and forever, all the time, for absolutely everything. Disobedience to a self-imposed authority who stands up and loudly demands that obedience is impossible for them to consider, much as it would be impossible for normal people to do something impossibly horrible to their children. But there are plenty of people who do commit such acts. Every day one can read about someone burning their kids with cigarettes, sticking their hands in pots of boiling water or starving them in cages or selling them to 50 rapists a day. Every single day. Not all are religious, but many are and rationalize it in their faith structure and the corresponding belief system.

    There is a reason why Pentecostals, Catholics and Mormons consistently produce the largest number of schizophrenic or bipolar children, and have the highest rates of violent child abuse and spousal abuse in the country. Not to mention divorce rates, alcoholism, downloads of violent rape or war pornography and drug abuse. Closeted, insular groupings of people provide a self-reenforcing feedback in their social paradigms. Thats why David Koresh could rape 7 year olds and get away with it for years. Thats why Hitler and Stalin and Mussolini and Duvalier were so successful in their times. All you need to do is convince 12 people out of a hundred and teach them how to each convince 12 people out of a hundred that they are something superior to the others. Hitler used pentacostal vocal motives in his speeches. He was the most vehemently strident person in the room and had the support of the largest, wealthiest industrialist families in the world. The people who managed to still gather incredible, immeasurable wealth for themselves in the face of the horrible economic depression in Germany at the time. Thats what the GOP/TeaParty is trying to duplicate in the United States right now. They know damn well what they can accomplish when unemployment approaches 20% of the population. Starving, desperate people in large numbers will always follow the most charismatic person in the room. Even if that person promotes violence as a method of regaining economic prosperity.

    Leftist liberal capitalists captured and enslaved West Africans and transported them to America and slavery.

    Leftist liberal capitalist Southerners maintained an economy based on human, African-American slavery.

    Leftist liberals capitalist whites formed the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and a more general system of indentured servituded and sharecropping post-Civil War.

    Leftist liberals beat and murdered Northern volunteers and Southern Black heros trying to capture the right to vote and generally participate as equals in society.

    Leftist liberals fought the establishment of Social Security and Medicare, programs for all elderly Americans, Black or White or Brown, that systematically destroyed elderly poverty.

    Leftist liberals propelled Ronald Raygun to victory after he started his campaign in Philadelphia Mississippi, essentially on the graves of Chaney, Schwerner and Goodman, declaring his allegence to “states rights”; said Raygun would soon after make hay with racist whites with his condemnation of (imaginary) Cadillac-driving ‘welfare queens’.

    Leftist liberals have always fought againt justice organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Leftist liberals are the biggest supporters of the Paul Ryan budget, a plan that would eviscerate our societal commitment to a safety net for the poor and the vulnerable.

    Yep, puddles, liberals are the enemy of the poor, and only those inclusive, positive, constructive Christianist Republicans can bring our society together as a family and ensure dignity and participation for all.

    Figures.

    Sound like a lefty to you:

    I became the fastest promoted CS3 within Jay Mount’s conservative fundraising power wagon MDS. I started my own charity “Manna for Mesa” and fed hordes of homeless. I worked tirelessly in Mormon charitable endeavors. Still, friends and neighbors considered me an opinion molder and prodded me into local politics. From President of the Mesa Community College Republican’s Club, to shadowing elected officials such as former Speaker of the House Jeff Groscost who took me under their wing, to working my way up the food chain in the state republican party with Senator Russell Pearce, I had an innate knack for delivering powerful speeches, winning debates, and delivering one line knock out blows to political rivals. I became a precinct committeeman, precinct captain, county delegate, state delegate, and national delegate alternate as well as making a strong show in a city council race where I came in ahead of a well-funded Latina activist in a largely Hispanic district.

    43 – I call right wing bullshit:

    We found that the number of millionaire taxpayers increased significantly after the passage of Proposition 63. Between 2004 and 2007, there was a 48.6 percent increase in the number of tax returns filed by taxpayers with adjusted gross incomes of more than $1 million. In contrast, the total number of taxpayers in the state increased by 8.6 percent during the same period. While we certainly don’t claim that high-income earners moved to California to pay the higher tax rate, there is also little evidence to support the claim that they are leaving to avoid paying the higher rates.

Larke Brown’s motion asked the court to stop Sherrod from “harassing, including telephone harassment, annoying, interfering with or doing bodily harm to this Plaintiff at her residence or elsewhere.” Shapiro drew attention to the irony of Obama choosing to launch his campaign with Brown in the midst of the alleged “War on Women.”
