shooting at louisiana theater

not much info at press time.

Confederate Flag surprisingly popular in Canada.

Be it at their Vancouver, Ottawa or Dieppe, N.B., locations, the Flag Shop always had a Canadian market for the “Confederate Battle Flag.”

According to Susan Braverman, the Vancouver-based president of the franchise, the flag suggested a brand of “rebelliousness” that appealed largely to teenagers.

In 2013, Hamilton, Ont.’s Hillbilly Heaven restaurant faced a barrage of criticism for hanging a Confederate battle flag over its front door.

Owner Cameron Bailey argued that he was just trying to find an iconic southern symbol to advertise his barbeque-laden menu, although the standard has since been taken down.

Scott Walker Gubernatorial campaign probe halted

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/17/us/wisconsin-court-to-rule-on-inquiry-involving-scott-walkers-2012-campaign.html?_r=0


The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that a criminal investigation into allegations of coordination between conservative groups and Gov. Scott Walker’s 2012 campaign cannot continue.

The decision of the court, which was divided, ends the specter of a criminal investigation as Mr. Walker pursues the Republican nomination for president. Mr. Walker, who has won three elections for governor over the last five years including a recall challenge in 2012, officially announced his bid on Monday.

“To be clear,” Thursday’s ruling reads, “this conclusion ends the John Doe investigation because the special prosecutor’s legal theory is unsupported in either reason or law. Consequently, the investigation is closed.”

Legal experts said the special prosecutor, Francis D. Schmitz, could appeal the decision to the United States Supreme Court. A lawyer for Mr. Schmitz was not available for comment on Thursday morning.

Oh Snap, Texas! RE: Operation Jade Elephant

An old favorite makes a good point.




Latino worker responds to Donald Trump.

parallel universe moment: Wow. Trump all over msnbc, Fox basically ignoring speech.

this will probably change in a sec, of course.

I'm gonna ask.....all eyes on Mississippi?

I'd imagine there might be some talk about it, seeing as how the Confederate battle flag flies on every state government building by default, and I would imagine it would fly directly below the US flag.

You can't have both.



Whenever it's convenient, Republicans like to tout their Abe Lincoln street cred. Of course, the ironic devotion to their defeated CSA heritage is lost on them. Given the fact that Republicans are more likely to support the flag, I always ask one question whenever they cite Abraham Lincoln:

"Exactly what happened to your party?"

I've come to terms with the fact that, once upon a time, Southern "Dixie-crats" were towing the CONSERVATIVE LINE OF WHITEPRIDE&BIRTHOFANATIONCIVILWARNOSTALGIA. Today's deluded GOP would have us believe their Southern Jim Crow GOP counterparts were model spokesmen for racial equality.
