Incoherent Republican Screams Of Rage Cannot Be Deciphered:

Sid, your threads always have a mysterious aspect that end like this scene:



They already lost a big one at the Supreme Court. The Kochroaches dissented, naturally:

Supreme Court hands major EPA victory to Obama administration

The ruling marks an important step to reducing power plant pollution. Scalia and Thomas (predictably) dissented...

The Supreme Court has given the Environmental Protection Agency an important victory in its effort to reduce power plant pollution that contributes to unhealthy air in neighboring states.

The court’s 6-2 decision Tuesday means that a rule adopted by EPA in 2011 to limit emissions from plants in more than two-dozen Midwestern and Southern states can take effect. The pollution drifts into the air above states along the Atlantic Coast and the EPA has struggled to devise a way to control it.

Power companies and several states sued to block the rule from taking effect, and a federal appeals court in Washington agreed with them in 2012.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote the court’s majority opinion.
Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas dissented...*

We'll see how this one goes... I'm sure Rand *mountain top removal is good for the environment* Paul will be right there to help...

Yeah, probably a 'posh' area and they want a certain look, like models. But that's not all there is.

China also has a lot of women in the armed forces, too:



Women in Chinese military

Published on Jan 28, 2013


Chinese women comprise about 7.5 percent of total military personnel in the PLA . Though most women soldiers still serve in traditional women roles or in military support positions, more women soldiers appear on positions that involved dangerous tasks. In 2009, the first batch of female jet fighter pilots, aged 21 to 24, graduated after 44 months of training. There are also women serve in Marine Corps, Special Forces, drug criminal police, etc. At the same time, women soldiers began to appear in public through mass media more often. During the 60th Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China military parade, the marching group formed by female soldiers caught much attention. All of the women soldiers were marching in short miniskirts and white leather boots through Tiananmen Square. The group of female soldiers consists of troops from the army, the navy and the air force, which makes it the biggest marching group in the modern history of military parades anywhere in the world. According to China's state channel, CCTV, the requirement for female participation in the commemorating parade was being "brave, beautiful and elegant" altered from being just "brave".

GMTA. My first thought this morning. Why not pray 'em away?

After Perry told people in his state suffering from natural disasters to pray, he prayed to Obama for federal bucks to fix things.

Governor Goodhair is showing a decided lack of faith in Gawd Almighty and should be called out on it!

He is a Heretic, and returning to his original Gawd-less faith:



'IN GUNS WE TRUST'


Militia Efforts to Converge at the Border Fizzle Out

...And then there was militia enthusiast Dyna DeRien, who posts at YouTube as 1HellOnHeels and calls herself the “CEO and founder” of “the American Anti-Federalist Patriot Party.”

After Davis yanked all his videos from the Internet, hers were the only videos remaining on the web describing the militia plan of attack and the motivation for turning out on the border.

“We’re tired of those SOBs in Washington D.C. bringing all these illegals into our country and just spreading ‘em out with all their diseases all over the place,” she said.

A day later, that rant had been taken down, too.


But it was caught by Hatewatch first:

'Well, anyways...'

Sojourner Truth... And it's not even February anymore. That's the one I love best.

Whatever it takes one to get through HELL, I'm all for it. Those who haven't been, good for them, I won't tell them what to think or how to live.

Part of her life story is in what may or may not be the most accurate version of the famous 'Aint I A Woman?' speech delivered at the Women's Convention in Akron, Ohio, on May 29, 1851.

Marius Robinson, who attended the convention and worked with Truth, recorded his version of the speech in the June 21, 1851, issue of the Anti-Slavery Bugle:

One of the most unique and interesting speeches of the convention was made by Sojourner Truth, an emancipated slave. It is impossible to transfer it to paper, or convey any adequate idea of the effect it produced upon the audience. Those only can appreciate it who saw her powerful form, her whole-souled, earnest gesture, and listened to her strong and truthful tones.

She came forward to the platform and addressing the President said with great simplicity: "May I say a few words?" Receiving an affirmative answer, she proceeded:

I want to say a few words about this matter. I am a woman's rights. I have as much muscle as any man, and can do as much work as any man. I have plowed and reaped and husked and chopped and mowed, and can any man do more than that?

I have heard much about the sexes being equal. I can carry as much as any man, and can eat as much too, if I can get it. I am as strong as any man that is now.

As for intellect, all I can say is, if a woman have a pint, and a man a quart – why can't she have her little pint full? You need not be afraid to give us our rights for fear we will take too much, – for we can't take more than our pint'll hold.

The poor men seems to be all in confusion, and don't know what to do. Why children, if you have woman's rights, give it to her and you will feel better. You will have your own rights, and they won't be so much trouble.

I can't read, but I can hear. I have heard the bible and have learned that Eve caused man to sin. Well, if woman upset the world, do give her a chance to set it right side up again.

The Lady has spoken about Jesus, how he never spurned woman from him, and she was right. When Lazarus died, Mary and Martha came to him with faith and love and besought him to raise their brother. And Jesus wept and Lazarus came forth. And how came Jesus into the world?

Through God who created him and the woman who bore him. Man, where was your part?

But the women are coming up blessed be God and a few of the men are coming up with them. But man is in a tight place, the poor slave is on him, woman is coming on him, he is surely between a hawk and a buzzard.

Yes, we and others are still coming up and if we do not win, humanity itself, by not loving all of each other, could lose everything, freedom, liberty and our future.

It's not about one or the other, or a reasons to fight each other. Those are the tools of the ones who profit from our willingness to hate each other. They are laughing. Will we keep on playing the roles they want?


Perfect: We are America. Love it or lose it.
