president obama nominates first native american woman

To federal bench

http://www.policymic.com/mobile/articles/65911/president-obama-just-nominated-the-very-first-native-american-woman-for-federal-judge

Diane J. Humetewa, a member of the Hopi tribe and former U.S. attorney in Arizona, has been nominated to serve on the U.S. District Court for the district of Arizona as a federal judge. If confirmed, she would be the first active member of a Native American reservation, and first Native American woman to serve as a federal judge. Not only would this bring more diversity to the federal bench, but Arizona’s prominent Native community will finally be represented in a state that is infamous forignoring Native issues.

There’s a new controversy surrounding "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson as a video made four years ago surfaced showing the show’s patriarch talking about the merits of marrying teenage girls.In the video, Robertson says “Look, you wait till they get to be 20 years old - the only picking that’s gonna take place is your pocket. You gotta marry these girls when they’re about 15 or 16.”

Thor Steinar: fashionable German Neo-Nazi clothing? WTF

Thor Steinar is a German clothing brand manufactured by Thor Steinar Mediatex GmbH, a subsidiary of International Brands General Trading, a Dubai-based company.

In Germany, the brand is closely associated to neo-nazism by the Verfassungschutz of the state of Brandenburg. In German media, the brand is most often discussed in the light of this association. Wearing Thor Steinar clothes is expressly forbidden in the Bundestag, in the Landtag of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and of Saxony and in several football stadiums.

I was surfing the internet, generally looking at German stuff in anticipation of going there one day. I came across this phenomena and thought I would share just because it is odd. Any Germans or others who live there know how big a deal this is?

Here are some examples of their products, not what one usually associates with neo- Nazis






But here is there logo



And here are some far right legislators being removed from a local assembly for wearing the stuff:

alan turing was a genius mathematician who played no small part in saving western civilization

from racist homophobes. Phil Robertson is a racist homophobe who feels western civilization is at risk from gay people like Turing because they are gay. Guess one is getting the most "I stand with" posts on FB among the self described patriots. No point explaining the irony to them. The don't do irony. Well they do it but they just don't know they are.
