The 50th Anniversary of Mississippi’s Freedom Summer: Remembering What Fannie Lou Hamer Taught Us

You’ve heard the expression, “You catch more flies with honey”? Well, Republicans would catch more flies with sanity.

– Maybe I’m wrong, but I think “As far as I can tell, there’s no video, as the Seattle Channel’s appetite for zoning meetings is lower than mine.” may be the greatest opening sentence in the history of language. Also, the actual piece on the Rainier upzone is interesting if you’re into that sort of thing.

– Oh hey, PZ Myers is in town. If you go see him, try not to be an asshole.

– The Aziz Ansari bit on 50 Cent not knowing what grapefruit is is one of my favorites. Now the plot thickens.

    Yes, don’t be an asshole to PZ Myers! Because a guy who will go to a church he doesn’t believe in and steal a communion wafer, then incites his readers to do the same, deserves extra-special consideration.

    I’m an atheist myself, but he’s a major jerk-off who’s done almost as much to taint the cause as anti-feminist Islamophobes Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris. When people criticize us for becoming an ignorant quasi-religion (look up “scientism” sometime) he’s a prime exhibit.

    Wait… What? http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06.....ation.html Did they just say Obummer sadministration is clueless? Wait… there must be members of Obummer’s sadministration on this blog because they also are clueless… And this is from the NY Times… P R I C E L E S S.

    WASHINGTON — President Obama’s handling of the Bergdahl prisoner exchange has renewed frustration among congressional Democrats about the administration’s relations with its allies on Capitol Hill, and prompted criticism that the White House failed to prepare the lawmakers for the politically explosive case.

    While Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who leads the Intelligence Committee, went public with her dissatisfaction at not being notified in advance about the exchange, other lawmakers and officials said privately that Democrats felt exposed by their lack of knowledge about the circumstances surrounding Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s capture and the backgrounds of the five Taliban officials traded for his freedom.

    Well this is what Puddy wrote yesterday and this morning in the other open thread in response to Roger IDIOT Wabbit. Senate DUMMOCRETINS don’t like being exposed as the fools they are. Dayum this is wonderful about how Obummer DUMMOCRETIN sadministration morons like Susan Rice live in their little 1600 Pennsylvania Ave cocoon!

    Rut-roh Raggy… http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/.....ving-Obama

    CNN’s most recent poll provided a clear indicator of this dynamic in the wake of two major controversies involving military issues. The results showed that Obama did not gain a majority of support for any of twelve issues surveyed from the respondents. In fact, in ten of the twelve issues, majorities disapproved of the President’s performance, and only on one – the environment, usually an overwhelming Democratic strength – did his approval exceed his disapproval, and only barely at 49/45. On the economy and health care, which the poll identified as the top two priorities of its respondents, Obama’s approval ratings sank to 38/61 and 36/63, respectively.

    Now we see how important that Benghazi coverup is!

    A Taliban commander close to the negotiations over the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told TIME Thursday that the deal made to secure Bergdahl’s release has made it more appealing for fighters to capture American soldiers and other high-value targets.

    Puddy placed the whitey house narrative of swift boat by Republicans on HA yesterday! F Upchuck Todd immediately went there. Chris actually showed some moxy with pushback!

    And it’s no SwiftBoat event either… John Effin Kerry went onto Congress and told how he did this or that in the early 1970s with his medals. Then the other guys rebutted in 2004. So natually libtards are rushing to Obummer’s defense parroting the company line!

    “Lab tests have confirmed that a patient in Texas who recently died had … a fatal brain disorder linked to eating beef from cattle with mad cow disease, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a press release.”

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/06/05/.....?hpt=hp_t2

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Some states will convict you of a felony and send you to prison for videoing bad farming practices. Of course, Republicans control the legislatures of all those states. So why would you vote for a political party that makes it a criminal offense to expose agricultural practices that can harm your health or kill you? Do you hate yourself? Why would you feed your children Texas beef? Do you hate your kids?

    How many people here think a person who videotapes a forklift operator dropping a cow belongs in a prison cell with a rapist or robber? Raise your hands! That’s the kind of laws voting for Republicans will get you.

    In many Republican-run states, making a video like this one will get you a felony conviction and prison sentence. Not the farmer or forklift operator for abusing the cow — you, for taping the abuse. What a fucked up sense of priorities.

    @10 Even a brain dead moron like you should be able to figure out the correct thing to do is bring the guy home, give him and his accusers their day in court, then punish him if he’s found guilty in a fair trial. Anything else is lynching, and the fact you’ve chosen to align yourself with the lynch mob speaks worlds about your character while saying nothing about Bergdahl’s guilt or innocence.

    Ahhh yes the real morons behind Obummer’s policy gaffes! http://online.wsj.com/articles.....1402011139

    It was a political desire to sweep the Veterans Administration scandal off the front pages that put President Obama in the Rose Garden with Sgt. Bergdahl’s parents—when Secretary of State John Kerry, or even a press release, would have given distance. It was a political desire to claim a foreign-policy victory that saw Ms. Rice again peddling a phony story, this time about how Sgt. Bergdahl had served with “honor and distinction”—when senior officials had to know that was questionable. Who failed to warn the president that Sgt. Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers would surely speak out? Who failed to walk him through the ABCs of the statute he signed requiring Congressional notification, or warn him of the bipartisan fury his cold shoulder would inspire?

    Most remarkable is that despite the endless loop of foreign-policy fiascoes, this White House seems oblivious of the need for institutional change. It has had its share of experienced hands ( Bob Gates, Leon Panetta ) come and go, but shows no evidence it learned from them. In Obama world, there is only politics. And so the world will continue to burn.

    Remember how a certain weekly UW HA Friday Night Comix thread creator took Travis Bickle to task for making that assumption. Well now we learn it wasn’t a Travis Bickle assumption, that was their plan all along. Obummer sadministration didn’t expect the backlash per the mind-numbed robots at PMSNBC, they expected euphoria. They expected the soldiers would keep their mouths shut while the VA scandal went to Page 4. Unfortunately Obummer doesn’t see the connection to the veterans who served with Bergdahl and the VA treatment of veterans who served before Bergdahl. A veteran is a veteran. Something missed by DUMMOCRETINS everywhere!

    Truth sux to DUMMOCRETINS. Their preznit is AN EMPTY SUIT!

    Uber has announced an enormous new round of funding this afternoon. The company is taking on $1.2 billion in fresh capital, an investment that values it at $17 billion, not counting all the cash it has in the bank. The only startup to raise money at a higher valuation before going public was Facebook.

    Colorado likely first to legislatively authorize ride-share services

    Hickenlooper’s office has urged lawmakers to pass the much-debated measure because without it, Lyft and UberX would be forced to cease operations in the state, dealing a blow to Colorado’s reputation as an innovation hub.

    Read more: Colorado likely first to legislatively authorize ride-share services – The Denver Post http://www.denverpost.com/busi.....z33tbtoe1e

    Clearly the result of too many legislators – and the Dem guv! – getting stupid on that newly legalized marijuana, not to mention substantial evidence that Colorado is, in fact, now a blue state.

    Seriously, note that the insurance industry stepped up and addressed the liability issues, at least for now.

    I’m sure that HA types will be as dismissive of Colorado cabbies who soon won’t be able to earn a living wage as they are of immigrant business owners in Seattle who soon probably won’t be able to afford to pay a living wage.
