Today's Equality Trifecta!

Damn, I miss Albert Heijn…

Not Your Daddy's Flintstones...

Looks like he's the one to beat… Going for the gelding.

You personally have my permission to knuckle-dust any fool who wears one of these atrocities...

“Black racism is a myth…"

“Black racism is a myth created by whites to ease their guilt feelings. As long as whites can be assured that blacks are racists, they can find reasons to justify their own oppression of’ black people.”

— James H. Cone Black Theology and Black Power

If you dropped a cooked turkey onto the floor, right out of the oven, would you still serve it?

Obviously after cleaning it is some way and maybe even cooking it some more. But the question is, would you serve it or would you toss it?

Al-Qaida's Thoughts on Boko Haram Will Make You Even More Terrified For Those Missing Girls

The news: You know that you're getting too extreme if even al-Qaida is giving you major side-eye.

That's precisely what's happening with Boko Haram, the Islamist group behind the April kidnapping of over 270 schoolgirls in Nigeria. Though it's known to be loosely affiliated with al-Qaida, it is now catching flak from Islamist militants who believe that the group went too far and is even being counterproductive to al-Qaida's goals.

The New York Times contends that Muslim scholars and Islamist parties around the world rejected Boko Haram many years ago for its "senseless cruelty and capricious violence against civilians." But despite their self-distancing, this week's actions have been too much even for "fellow militants normally eager to condone terrorist acts against the West and its allies." Notes the Times:

"'Such news is spread to taint the image of the Mujahedeen,' wrote one dubious poster on a web forum used by Islamic militants whose administrator uses a picture of Osama bin Laden."


If you've lost al-Qaida, you've lost Middle Islamic Fundamentalism.

Now all he needs is some gin and juice and we got a party...

WATCH: GOP Rep. Pulls Out ‘Faux’ Joint During Hearing on Marijuana Laws

Members of Congress have been known to bring some strange props to hearings over the years, but this may be the first time a joint was brandished in a committee room, even if it was (supposedly) a fake one. During a House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee hearing on marijuana decriminalization, Rep. John Mica (R-FL) picked up a joint and started waving it around to show the room what a gram of pot really looks like.

“I have this joint here,” he said. “This is — okay, don’t get too excited, some of you. This is not a real one. It’s a mock one.” He explained that his staff informed him that the joint represented one gram, so under proposed regulations, people could be in possession of 28 joints in the District of Columbia.
