Daily Beast to Scalia: “Do you sodomize your wife?”



When the time came for audience questions, a student named Eric Berndt stood up in the packed auditorium and pressed Scalia to explain his dissent, particularly his opinion as to whether it was constitutional for the government to peer into the bedrooms of consenting adults and punish them for what goes on in there. When Scalia did not answer to the student’s satisfaction, Berndt asked him, “Do you sodomize your wife?”

Takei slams Scalia: 'He needs to consider recusing himself-He's clearly biased in (DOMA) situation'

During an appearance on MSNBC, actor and LGBT activist George Takei called for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to recuse himself from upcoming cases involving the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8.

Scalia recently told an audience at Princeton University that someone could be morally opposed to homosexuality in the same manner they were morally opposed to murder or bestiality.

“Well, it seems to me that if Justice Elena Kagan can recuse herself from the Boston case, Justice Scalia needs to consider recusing himself,” Takei said. “He is obviously not unbiased. He is clearly biased in this situation. So how can he look at the issue and make a judgement fairly.”

“I really do think, first of all that statement was a repugnant statement to equate homosexuality with murder, and any Justice who has so little thought before he speaks should not be participating in the ruling on the cases involving DOMA or Proposition 8,” he added.

Jimmy Carter: Marijuana Legalization Is Smart, Imprisonment For Possession Is Out Of Control

..............................

Carter, who as president supported an era of marijuana decriminalization in the mid-1970s, told CNN's Suzanne Malveaux that he was "in favor" of states that were taking steps to legalize the drug.

"I think it’s OK,” Carter said. “I don’t think it’s going to happen in Georgia yet, but I think we can watch and see what happens in the state of Washington for instance, around Seattle, and let the American government and let the American people see does it cause a serious problem or not.”

.................

Speaking about the issues of an anti-drug system focused on enforcement, Carter suggested that large incarceration rates, especially among minorities, were being perpetuated by harsh punishments for marijuana possession.

"It's a major step backward, and it ought to be reversed, not only in America, but around the world," Carter argued, later going on to say that nations such as Portugal, which decriminalized all drugs in 2000, could be a model for the United States to look toward in the future.

Worst Marketing Decision Ever: Drycleaner Puts "Pro-life" Message on Their Hangers

There is a branch of anti-choice activists that will use pretty much anything as a medium for their message: newspaper ads, graphic signs displayed in front of schools, bus stop benches. You would think they would know well enough to leave one place untouched, though. Wire coat hangers.

You would be wrong.



Springdale Drycleaners of Cincinnati, Ohio, has been etching "Choose Life" ads on wire coat hangers used to hang dry-cleaning.

What's worse is that this seems to be an ongoing effort. Reports of the "choose life" coat hangers already were on the internet back in March of 2011, when Joe.My.God posted a picture of the hanger then. And before that on Regretsy in 2010. So despite over two years of attention, the business continues to think this is an excellent cross-advertising campaign. In fact, the practice was losing them customers as far back as August of 2010, but still the dry-cleaner continues to use hangers as a place to offer inappropriate propaganda.

Corporate profits are at an all time high.

So where is the trickle down?

How can the economy be bad when corporate profits are higher than ever?

You know what is wrong with the economy?

Income inequality.

That is what is wrong with the economy. 30 plus years of stagnant wages is what is wrong with the economy. Union busting that makes it harder for normal people to earn a decent living is what is wrong with the economy. Record corporate profits are not a sign that the economy has recovered, it is a sign that the economy is still functionally broken for everyone who isn't already rich. Since the financial collapse of 2008 the subsequent "recovery" over 90% of the profits made from labor in this country have gone to the top 2% of earners. So a small fraction of the population get's their boom time golden toilet days back while over 90% (300 million +) are stuck arguing how we can fairly divide the crumbs.

Then, after paying you crumbs, they curse you for your poverty.
