Hillary Clinton Re: Michael Brown "We can't ignore the inequities that persist in our justice system

"Watching the recent funeral for Michael Brown, as a mother, as a human being, my heart just broke for his family," she said at a conference hosted by Nextenta, a software company, in San Francisco. "Because losing a child is every parent's greatest fear and an unimaginable loss. But I also grieve for that community and for many like it across our country."

"We can't ignore the inequities that persist in our justice system that undermine our most deeply held values of fairness and equality," she said. "Imagine what we would feel and what we would do if white drivers were three times as likely to be searched by police during a traffic stop as black drivers instead of the other way around."

"That is the reality in the lives of so many of our fellow Americans and so many of the communities in which they live."


"I applaud President Obama for sending the attorney general to Ferguson and demanding a thorough and speedy investigation," Clinton said, "to find out what happened, to see that justice is done, to help this community begin healing itself."

"This is what happens when the bonds of trust and respect that hold any community together fray," she said. "Nobody wants to see our streets look like a war zone, not in America. We are better than that."

Massive Half-Mile-Long Crack Appears in Ground in Northern Mexico

Massive Half-Mile-Long Crack Appears in Ground in Northern Mexico

David Manthos, SkyTruth | August 28, 2014 11:04 am

Last week a video emerged of a giant fissure in the Northern Mexican desert, 3,300 feet long and up to 25 feet deep. Speculation centered at first around an earthquake, but the region is not known for seismic activity. I personally checked out the U.S. Geological Survey earthquake data because the Buena Vista Copper mine (the fourth largest in the world by output) is only about 150 miles north of the enormous crack, and earlier this month they spilled 40,000 cubic meters of sulphuric acid into two rivers during the worst spill in Mexico’s modern mining history. But I found no reports of tremors in the region and authorities were skeptical that this had anything to do with an earthquake.


He was just another panhandler

Dear Morans:


Obama Agenda Alert!

When you go to the polls and they ask for your name to check you off in
the registry...it's really just a way for Obama to get your name and
address so he can send people to take your guns and put you in a FEMA


Save yourselves from the dictator and stay at home!

Spread the word! Please share with all your Tea Party friends!

Check it out (snark) here:

Lmao....somewhere, a wingnut with tinfoil wrapped around it's pointy head is actually contemplating the validity of this.....


"Bullying" The "Right" Way:

John Cole: "Greetings From St. Louis"

NRA: "It's Her Right To Accidently Kill People"

NRA responds to 9-year-old’s fatal Uzi accident:
Kids should ‘have fun at the shooting range’

“If children continually shoot the same bull’s-eye target, they can become tired, exhausted or bored,” wrote Women’s Outdoor News’ Mia Anstine. “As the boredom sets in, the effort that goes into shooting can deteriorate.”

Gov. Corbett: Reform Liquor Laws So It's Easier For Women To Make Dinner

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett (R) thinks his state should reform its liquor laws. That way, he argued, women would have an easier job making dinner.

Corbett made the argument in July during an appearance on The Sam Lesante Show. The clip of him making those comments were reposted Tuesday by the Democratic political PAC Fresh Start PA, which supports Corbett's opponent Tom Wolf (D).

"I think a lot of people want to be able to walk into a grocery store," Corbett said. "Particularly, a lot of the women, want to be able to go in and buy a bottle of wine for dinner, go down buy a six pack or two six packs, buy dinner, and go home. Rather than what I just described, is at least three stops, in Pennsylvania."

Pennsylvania Republicans have recently been looking at ways to reform the state's liquor laws.
