Oh You Stupid Injun, When Will You Ever Learn?

Going for simple, here's the path: Rethug congresscritter says, "fuck you, Injuns! Who cares about your sacred dead? I sure don't. Here's what that legislator is all about. Here's his voting record. Here's the rundown on his BFF Jackie A. Here's what Jack does to Injuns, and how Hastings probably learned the trade. Injuns are stupid and poor and brown, and it's easy to fool them, no?

Here is what you can do: QUIT FLYING.

Thread: 

Seriously. Stop getting on airplanes. Stop buying tickets. Stop spending money. Do the terrorists win? No -- but you don't have to let the government take your hand cleaner, skin lotion, shampoo and trash it. You have a right to your property. All you have to do is quit flying. Read below the fold...

Move Along, Aunt Jamima

Thread: 

It's quite simple, really. Lawyers work with laws. Sometimes, frequently in fact, they are elected to positions in which they interpret laws, apply them, or write them. Anyone who has spent five minutes looking at the legal environment in that there are incredible, horrifying disparities with respect to the way that white collar and blue collar crimes are adjudicated, and of how the penalties that apply to them are legislated. There are more people of color who are blue collar than white collar. The Republicans have been stacking the nation’s benches with anti-liberty pro-corporations judges for decades, and one is hard pressed to find a friend on the federal bench to the working class, of all colors. So this sucks. Take a look at the numbers in bold in particular: Read below the fold...

A Mighty Warrior Has Fallen

Let's have some shrimp lover's fun, shall we? Sad, lonely Marty:

THE CLINTON FACTOR: My penis is tiny, and very few large breasted 20somethings have asked it they could "kiss it."

I was for Joe Lieberman. He's my BFF! he's tough, manly, and he hates arabs as much as I do. We know what to do, unlike you wimpy, rabid crazies who keep insisting on sources and accuracy and peace. Hippie scum.
