Wow, frazzled! Maybe that's why Dr West didn't get invited to the Inauguraton.. could not be.. but,

geeze.. that's just crazy talk and the kind I'm use to coming from "mr so entrenched in people's skin color" he's rendered himself obnoxious. His own worst enemy.

"At any rate, we'd tuned into the Tavis Smiley radio show on NPR, and he had his friend West on. And they start talking about Obama and West says, "He's not really a brother, you know. His mother was white." And my husband and I looked at each other and pretty much gasped. The conversation continued about how this fellow Obama (then our senator from Illinois) was not black enough, and in that sense, was some sort of fraud."

Dr West sounded like a jealous mean girl before Obama became President.. now it's just the Tavis and West Vitriolic Tour and sure they have some ODSers to give them applause.

Oh thank you, proverbialwisdom! I'm on Kauai.. and this is

the first time I've heard that our law that was passed by our People has been overturned by an Judge for the GMO co.

KauaiK "REMINDER: ALL the law said was (1) they have to disclose WHAT they are spraying; (2) give notice WHEN they spray; and (3) cannot spray near people, residences, businesses, schools, etc."

"This issue is far from over," said Gary Hooser, a Kauai council member who co-introduced the bill. "One opinion from one federal magistrate does not settle the issue."

Mr. Hooser said he supported appealing the ruling, although the full Kauai county council must make such a decision. The bill passed in November after council members overrode a veto by the island's mayor.

"By denying Kauai's law, the judge undermined efforts to create more transparency and more protections for farmers, workers and families from hazardous pesticides," said Paul Towers, spokesman for the Pesticide Action Network, which supported Kauai County in the case. Mr. Towers said the group still was reviewing the order and would "explore all available options" to defend Kauai.

Perfectamente, napkinz! I was going to choose just one but they're all too Good.. the last one..


Mahalo for the inside Texas info, dem in texas!

"Where The Hell Were These Blackademics Before 2008?" Or 2009?

Barack Obama in 1992 as director of Project Vote; which achieved its goal of registering 150,000 African American Voters

They damn sure didn’t help the black farmers get their money, they damn sure didn’t get black people health insurance, and they damn sure didn’t help our black gay brothers and sisters from getting kicked out of the military.

So where the hell were they?

I’ll tell you where they were, they were at each other’s schools sitting on some fucking panel theorizing about how to end racism or make it better for African Americans.

But do you know where President Obama was?

He was out in the streets registering people to vote, he was condemning an unjust war before it became fashionable to do so.

We got pictures of Barack Obama fresh out of college walking in poor black neighborhoods registering people to vote.

We got pictures of a young Barack Obama helping black folk.

We got pictures of a young Barack Obama sitting in a village in Kenya breaking bread with his grandmother.

And these same motherfuckers want to question his blackness

Barack Obama in his first year at Harvard Law School after working at Developing Communities Project as a community organizer from 1985 – 1988 where he set up a tenants rights organization, job training program, and college preparatory program. He enrolled at Harvard Law School in the fall of 1988 so as to better help his community

This photo released by Obama for America shows Barack Obama teaching at the University of Chicago Law School. After Harvard Law School, Obama returned to Chicago, joined a small civil rights firm, ran a voter registration drive, and lectured on constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School

Excellent depictions of the slithering runner that is Rand Paul, napkinz!

Thank you, napkinz!

The Inanity of Rand Paul's quote on Ferguson, MO..

Judd Legum ✔ @JuddLegum
Rand Paul on Ferguson: "There is a very good chance that this had nothing to do with race."

"Let's say you're African-American and you live there, let's say none of this has to do with race. It might not, but the belief — if you're African-American and you live in Ferguson, the belief is, you see people in prison and they're mostly black and brown, that somehow it is racial, even if the thoughts that were going on at that time had nothing to do with race.

"So it's a very good chance that had(sic) this had nothing to do with race, but because of all of the arrest and the way people were arrested, that everybody perceives it as, 'My goodness, the police are out to get us,' you know? And so that's why you have to change the whole war on drugs. It's not just this one instance."


Our bad.. we only "perceive it" as such.. Only Rand Paul in his infinite wisdom knows what's going on here... and there's a "very good chance that this had nothing to do with race"

I like this from the comment section at the link..

"So some white guy from Kentucky is telling the black people in Ferguson that it’s all in their head. Rand Paul doesn’t know a dam thing about what it’s like to be black." anniebella

Michael Brown

I love her.. she's been one of my most favortie card people for so long!

What a beautifully poignant thing to do for the Michael Brown Memorial Fund~

Mahalo, sufrommich.. this should get many many RECS!

The corporate bullshit coming from the toxic GMO Co is pathetic. I won't be a part of their

campaign to take over the world. Damn them to hell.

It's a Dick Cheney move to whine about the President finally getting some golf in on his

actual much earned vacation, she. Thank you for your OP.. I've seen rumblings about this and it pisses me off as it does Allen Clifton the writer of this piece.. who is from the Dallas Ft Worth area in Texas.

Cheney: President Obama Would 'Rather Be On The Golf Course' Than The Situation Room


Five myths about presidential vacations

3. George W. Bush took more vacation days than any other president.

During his eight-year presidency, Bush did take 879 days of vacation, including 77 trips to his Texas ranch. So far, Obama has taken about 150 days off. But our founders were away even more.

And, Dick head knows this..


Have to mention the a$$holes in Congress who did nothing all year and are now on a 5 week vaca with pay while they won't raise the Minimum Wage for actual hard working Americans.

And, glad they decided it was wrong to use that derogatory word in their headline even though it was exposing the racism in America against President Obama... from your link..

"The writer James Lincoln Collier penned an opinion piece for the July edition of WestView News, which was entitled: “The N***** in the White House”.

Despite the use of the racist slur, the column was actually a pro-Obama piece that suggested far-right opposition to the President was influenced by the colour of his skin.

Collier wrote: “These far right voters hate Obama because he is black. The simple truth is that there is still in America an irreducible measure of racism.”

Bottom Line.. from your 1st link..

"The last thing any American should want is a president who’s so stressed out that they’re on the verge of a psychotic breakdown. And the media, both the left and the right, really needs to stop this nonsense of shaming presidents every time they might dare take some kind of a vacation or – gasp – even play a round golf. -

My President who's hard at work even though he takes some time away to play golf and clear his head.
