Mayor who sent watermelon e-mail says he'll resign...Good, because he is a fucking liar in addition to being a racist bastard!
Los Alamitos Mayor Dean Grose issued a statement Thursday saying he is sorry and will step down as mayor at Monday's City Council meeting.
Grose came under fire for sending the picture to what he called "a small group of friends." One of the recipients, a local businesswoman and city volunteer, publicly scolded the mayor for his actions.
Grose says he accepts that the e-mail was in poor taste and has affected his ability to lead the city. Grose said he didn't mean to offend anyone and claimed he was unaware of the racial stereotype linking black people with eating watermelons.
It’s one thing to be a racist fuck, it’s another to lie and say “Oh I never heard of that racist stereotype.” Whether you think racist stereotypes are funny, or cruel or are in poor taste, just like some racist jokes one thing folks can’t say is “I was unaware” or “Oh I never heard that before.” This country is a mutt bowl and the easiest way to make yourself feel better about yourself is to use racial stereotypes and utter racist shit to those like you.
Damm cracka ass cracka!

Why would a sitting VP want to exaggerate how many jobs are disintegrating on his watch? Because, silly, the worse things seem now, the easier it is to credit The One later with having “created or saved” the jobs people still have.
You know what the media did here, don’t you? They … messed with Joe.

Joe Biden Says Dumb Things
Todd n Tyler - Joe Biden Stand Up!
Holder announced yesterday that he wants a new ban on "assault weapons." Supposedly, we should be willing to let corrupt authoritarians infringe on our right to bear arms so that the weapons don't fall into the hands of criminals in Mexico. An easier way to prevent this would be for the government to perform its most fundamental task: defend the border.
In case you forgot...
Obama and the Attempt to Destroy the Second Amendment
As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama must demonstrate executive experience, but he remains strangely silent about his eight years (1994-2002) as a director of the Joyce Foundation, a billion dollar tax-exempt organization. He has one obvious reason: during his time as director, Joyce Foundation spent millions creating and supporting anti-gun organizations.
There is another, less known, reason.
During Obama’s tenure, the Joyce Foundation board planned and implemented a program targeting the Supreme Court. The work began five years into Obama’s directorship, when the Foundation had experience in turning its millions into anti-gun “grassroots” organizations, but none at converting cash into legal scholarship.
The plan’s objective was bold: the judicial obliteration of the Second Amendment.
You Can Have Your Medical Marijuana If You Give Me Your Gun
At a press conference yesterday where he announced the arrests of more than 700 people connected to Mexican drug cartels, Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated the Obama administration's support for reinstituting a federal "assault weapon" ban. The Democratic Party considers the law—which covered 19 models by name, along with other guns that had certain "military-style" features (such as pistol grips and bayonet mounts) and magazines holding more than 10 rounds—the very model of reasonable gun control. Its 2008 platform called for bringing back the ban, and Obama has repeatedly voiced support for it. Both he and Holder say they are confident it would pass constitutional muster even after last year's Supreme Court ruling that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms.

A professor from Kuwait, the country liberated from Saddam Hussein's attack squads by the United States in the first Gulf War, has called Islamic terrorists "the most honorable people in the world" and has outlined on Arab television a potential terror attack that would involve smuggling anthrax from Mexico into the U.S. and killing 330,000 people in 60 minutes.
The plan was described by Abdallah Al-Nafisi in a speech that aired on Al-Jazeera television Feb. 2, according to MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, an independent nonprofit that provides translations and analysis of media reports.
Al-Nafisi, whose school affiliation was not identified, says: "Four pounds of anthrax – in a suitcase this big – carried by a fighter through tunnels from Mexico into the U.S., are guaranteed to kill 330,000 Americans within a single hour, if it is properly spread in population centers there."

The women had bet mechanic Sergey Tuganov $4,300 that he wouldn’t be able to follow through with the half-day sex marathon.
But minutes after winning the bet, the 28-year-old died of a heart attack, Moscow police said.
“We called emergency services but it was too late, there was nothing they could do,” said one of the female participants who identified herself only as Alina.
"Nadya obviously needs income to ensure that her children are secure, so we are offering her up to $1 million to act in one movie," says Vivid cochair Steven Hirsch.
"We've had many single mothers work with us over the years, and their income from Vivid has been very important to them. We would schedule production so the movie could be shot in less than one week."
Hirsch makes it clear that hooking up with Vivid makes good, bottom line sense for Suleman.
"There is a tremendous amount of interest in Nadya, and we can help her capitalize on that interest and put some real cash in her bank account,"
Hirsch also added that they would do their best to make sure Suleman wasn't put into any, er, compromising positions.
"As with our Vivid Girls, she would have her choice of partners, including 'Octodad.' "
The Madison County Record, the sprightly weekly newspaper published at Huntsville, the county seat, broke the news first, but the nature of it guaranteed some national attention. Some 100 workers from Pennsylvania, about a third of them African Americans, came down to help the local electric cooperative restore power after the devastating ice storm last month took down just about every power pole in the county. They worked tirelessly clearing trees and putting up poles and lines in the ice and freezing rain to try to speed power to people.
For their trouble, they were harassed and threatened by roving groups of young men shouting racial epithets and pointing guns at them. The county sheriff said the young men would drive around the work teams waving Rebel flags and cursing the blacks. The workers were frightened enough to contact the sheriff’s office in nearby Washington County.
Madison County is all white.
The last time Madison County made national news was the day after the general election in which Sen. Barack Obama was elected president by a landslide. The owners of the Faubus Motel at Huntsville, named after the Arkansas governor who sent the National Guard to Little Rock Central High School to block nine black children from attending classes in 1957, took down the American flag the morning after the election and put up a Confederate flag. The proprietor said the voters of the United States had abandoned the principles of the nation’s founders in electing Obama.

SCANDAL MUSHROOMS He serves as housing authority counsel despite facing foreclosure on his own home
February 26, 2009
BY CHRIS FUSCO, TIM NOVAK AND DAVE MCKINNEY Staff Reporters
The son of embattled Sen. Roland Burris is a federal tax deadbeat who landed a $75,000-a-year state job under former Gov. Rod Blagojevich five months ago, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.
Blagojevich’s administration hired Roland W. Burris II as a senior counsel for the state’s housing authority Sept. 10 — about six weeks after the Internal Revenue Service slapped a $34,163 tax lien on Burris II and three weeks after a mortgage company filed a foreclosure suit on his South Side house.
A spokeswoman for the Illinois Housing Development Authority indicated Wednesday there was nothing improper about Burris II’s employment by the agency, whose mission includes overseeing mortgage programs for low-income home buyers and anti-foreclosure initiatives…

A flurry of reports over the weekend said that the former U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, considered a sharp critic of Israel, is to be named to a top intelligence post in the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama.
Chas W. Freeman Jr., who was U.S. ambassador in Riyadh from 1989-1992, is set to be named chairman of the National Intelligence Council, which has a strong influence on the content of the intelligence briefings presented to the President (and puts together the National Intelligence Estimate, or NIE, which in 2007 dissuaded the Bush regime from attacking Iran). The Council chairman is also often called on to give direct briefings to the President.
Typical of Freeman’s viewpoints is a statement he made in a speech before the Washington Institute of Foreign Affairs in 2007, in which he more or less blames international terrorist acts on Israel:
“American identification with Israeli policy has also become total. Those in the region and beyond it who detest Israeli behavior, which is to say almost everyone, now naturally extend their loathing to Americans. This has had the effect of universalizing anti-Americanism, legitimizing radical Islamism, and gaining Iran a foothold among Sunni as well as Shiite Arabs. For its part, Israel no longer even pretends to seek peace with the Palestinians; it strives instead to pacify them. Palestinian retaliation against this policy is as likely to be directed against Israel’s American backers as against Israel itself. Under the circumstances, such retaliation – whatever form it takes – will have the support or at least the sympathy of most people in the region and many outside it. This makes the long-term escalation of terrorism against the United States a certainty, not a matter of conjecture.”

LOS ALAMITOS - The mayor has sent an apology for an e-mail sent to a local businesswoman and community volunteer that she says is racist and offensive.
Keyanus Price, an African American, said she was appalled when she received an e-mail from Mayor Dean Grose's personal account that showed a picture of the White House with a watermelon patch imposed as the White House garden.
"I was horrified when I read that e-mail," Price said. "What I'm concerned about is how can this person send an e-mail out like this and think it is OK?"
Being a public official, Price said, made the matter worse.
"He's putting the city into a bad place, and he is a liability," Price wrote in an e-mail.
Grose sent an e-mail apology to Price, her boss and the City Council saying he did not intend to be offensive. He also called and left Price a message, he said.
"It was just poor judgment on my part, and I am deeply sorry," he said. "It wasn't meant to hurt her."
The council received the e-mail from Price's boss and also received a copy of the apology. Councilman Ken Stephens said he didn't receive the original e-mail.
Mayor Dean Grose's apology letter to the City Council, Price and her boss
I am deeply embarrassed in receiving your email, and for any harm or hurt that it may have caused. It was poor judgement on my part and was never intended to be offensive to Ms. Price, your company or anyone in the African American Community. I have exchanged emails with Ms. Price in the past.
I can fully understand your concerns and comments. Please be advised that I have left a voice mail for Ms. Price and will also be sending her a separate email with my apology. You can be assured that I will not allow this to happen again. I in no way was representing the City of Los Alamitos, or my role as a council member in sending this out and it went via my private business email. That doesn't justify the fact that it was sent, however, we gratefully appreciate the contributions that your company makes to our community and I wish to publically apologize to anyone within the firm or organization that may have been offended.
I am truly sorry.
Ok let me give some of you white folks a little tip.
Along my blog travels I see a lot of crazy and funny shit circulated.
Now I know many of you out there don’t like the Magic Negro and his politics and the fact that he is a liar and a socialist yada yada yada…
However do some of you folks lack the basic intellect to understand that if you make a racist Photoshop picture of the Magic Negro with watermelons or a noose or him with big lips or looking strung out on crack or some other “blackness” gesture that you not only are dissing President Magic Negro but you are dissing all black folks!?
Now folks I know that I am the biggest culprit of some of the worst pictures of the Prez and yes many of them are somewhat racist. However I am a blog professional, I have training on these sorts of things. But more important than that is I don’t use my gubment computer to circulate the shit particularly via e-mail.
For you white people that not only hate Magic but also turn up your collective noses are the very sight of dark skinned folks you should keep your racism confined to redneck bars or at home sipping Martinis…. oh who am I kidding Pabst Blue Ribbon and circulate your latest racist joke in private and avoid using electronic communication devices.
You can just point your racist friends to this blog so they can get their anti-Obama fix.
Remember the rule is I can make fun of black folks cause I have my black membership card. Leave the Negro jokes and funny pictures to the professionals… LOL!

I saw this story and it just pissed me off, how could a bus driver afford an $800,000 home?
I know what she was transporting and it wasn’t people!
Don’t mention the husband in the story I wonder why?
Michelle has a clip from CNN that demonstrates the silliness of the mortgage-bailout efforts of the Obama administration. Minta Garcia and her family bought an $800,000 home that they could not afford, using speculative lending as a lever. The value of the house has dropped to $675,000, and now Garcia faces foreclosure. However, the coverage omits a critical piece of the puzzle:
I guess the first question I’d ask is what made a bus driver believe she could afford an $800,000 house. Unless she makes six figures and had a hell of a down payment, the figures themselves seem so far out of whack that one has to wonder how it occurred at all. The lenders certainly deserve blame here, too, but no one forced Minta Garcia into that house and that mortgage.
Octomom may soon be enlisted to serve as a new ACORN sob story victim. Here’s a screenshot of the photo accompanying the story about her impending foreclosure:
Nadya Suleman, the mother of newborn octuplets, takes one of her fourteen children shopping for video games in Whittier, California.
More ACORN Negro Scam news…
In the latest developments on the Baltimore ACORN break-in, ACORN activist Donna Hanks was arrested and criminally charged. Just one more on top of her other brushes with the law (which the Washington Post and others have yet to report). The column also reports on the shady background of ACORN Baltimore leader Louis Beverly, who was arrested earlier this week for burglary after the break-in (and has also racked up quite a criminal history). Much more to come.

In a letter to Obama on Wednesday, Byrd complained about Obama’s decision to create White House offices on health reform, urban affairs policy, and energy and climate change. Byrd said such positions “can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances. At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials.”
How could Byrd turn on the Magic Negro so quickly especially after the Magic Negro was so supportive of Byrd’s reelection efforts.
I remember it like it was yesterday the famous letter nobody knew about except for Party Poop readers because I’m an obsessive SOB. There are black folks still today that don’t believe me when I tell them that The Magic Negro pimped for the former Klansman.
I know… I know… nobody gives a shit. LOL!
It won’t be long before Sen. Byrd starts to throw out “race mongrel” and a few N bombs as the Magic Negro continues his assault on the government.
Dear MoveOn member,
I’m writing today about a senator who needs your urgent support. Senator Robert Byrd was one of the first senators I met with when I came to the Senate 3 months ago. Senator Byrd understands the history, the importance and the role Senate plays in our government–at 87 years old, he’s the most senior senator. He has spoken out passionately against a Bush foreign policy that has alienated our allies throughout the world. Today, he is fighting an attempt by Republicans to change the 200-year old rules of the Senate that would allow Republicans to ram federal judges through the Senate with no regard for what others might say. Above all, Robert Byrd understands just how sacred the Constitution of our country truly is and fights every day to protect it. Now he needs our help. In 2006, Senator Byrd will be the target of Republicans because he stands up for what he believes. I want to be sure Robert Byrd is here fighting for us in the Senate. Will you join me in supporting his campaign for re-election, before a critical deadline this Thursday? You can give online at: …I hope you will give generously to help send Robert Byrd back to the Senate for another term to fight for the Constitution and the freedom of speech we all enjoy. Remember, in order to win back the Senate majority, we need Robert Byrd. [And Robert Byrd said, "The Klan is needed today as never before..."] The work you do is extremely important–you and millions of others, working through MoveOn, have helped change the way politics works in this country. Thank you for your help. Sincerely, Barack Obama

at Villainous Company and they had this video of some idiot college kids I guess trying to take over a food court. The site has more 411, the video was hilarious and some nitwit actually thought it was worth posting. Amazing!
This incident reminded me of one of the stupidest blog posts I have ever read From Gaza to Greece, Lawrence to Oakland: We Do Mind Dying, the comments section was just as amusing.
The best example of 2009 whiny, obnoxious, entitled, immature, and generally ridiculous adolescents types.
Too many of these young 20-something types are frankly just intellectually vacant and these are the kids the Magic Negro relied upon heavily to spread his moronic propaganda.
The text below is from Gawker
The final, farcical moments of the failed Revolutionary NYU Food Court Occupation were caught on film by one of the protesters. And then shown to the world, despite being—by any standard—incredibly embarrassing.
"You may not come in here. This is student's free space," says the cameraman, as a security guard pulls apart the flimsy barricade that the administration had chosen to leave in place for the past two days. As soon as the guard sets foot in the food court: "Excuse me, brutality here. You are on camera...Do not use brutality. You may not detain us, you are on camera!"
This, as two security guard were moving away from him.
"We deserve to be explained what is going on," he says to several bored-looking cops.
Here's what's going on dude: you're not actually allowed to take over buildings.
Believe it or not.
In case you missed the actual interview... I had not seen the video
Henrietta Hughes is the personification of Obamunism in more ways than one. Not only is she a parasite who expects the government to give her whatever she wants for free, but she is an utter fraud:
During Obama's campaign to promote his stimulus package, he staged an event with a woman, Henrietta Hughes, who, as it turns out, appears to be anything but truly needy. Henrietta was given an audience with Obama to beg for a home. When aid was provided via the offer of free rent by an opportunistic politician, the liberal press spouted that Henrietta was actually given a free home and implied it came from Obama. The lie has propagated through the liberal media and, quite honestly, it nauseated us because it was so obviously staged and such a distorted lie. Well, as it turns out, the lie didn't end there. …
It appears that the desperate homeless woman owns real estate she shifted into the name of her son to avoid taxes and acquire government aid. Apparently, Henrietta is the teacher and Tom Daschle is just a student. Henrietta also apparently sold real estate at a significant profit in 2005. Henrietta has now become the poster child the Democrats wish to use to justify the massive expense of helping the chronically unemployed, not-so-needy and not-at-all-homeless.
To add insult to injury, when Chairman Zero steals $billions from us, our children, and our grandchildren to shower upon the Henrietta Hugheses of the world, we're asked to believe it's a "stimulus" that will help the economy.

America Vs. Rush

Cold Hearts: Conservatives Attack Poor Homeless Henrietta Hughes
(link) Indeed, why should housing be considered a right? After all, what does my housing say about my personal class status and how much better I am than other people, if there aren’t those other people out there who don’t have a place to live at all?
The worst part is that Malkin isn’t alone. From Limbaugh falsely saying that Hughes “ask[ed] for a car” to others claiming that Hughes is “milking the system,” there’s no shortage of people who want to bring down the woman who had the potential to a far more sympathetic Joe the Plumber — an everyday American who is actually negatively affected by the economic policies of our government.
And they can get away with it! I just, honestly, do not understand. Are people like Malkin really so privileged and entitled themselves that they just do not comprehend the very concept of housing not owned by the person living in it — and that therefore “I need a place to live” does not equal “buy me a new house, please” — or do they just really think that no, if you’re not as fortunate as the rest of us, you really do deserve to live on the street, and as a neighbor I have absolutely no responsibility for what happens to you?
A Nation's Compassion, A Rethug's Cynicism
A Florida state legislator -- a Republican -- has offered Henrietta a home. A website has already been set up to call greater attention to the homelessness problem. A state citizen wants to send $50 a month to Ms. Hughes. For the moment, Henrietta Hughes has a little hope -- earned the hard way after living for nearly a year in a small pick-up truck.
And Malkin? From TownHall:
If she had more time, she probably would have remembered to ask Obama to fill up her gas tank, too.
Classy. And if you dare to read some of the more hateful comments, you can do so here.
Hand-outs. Free ride. Socialism. And that's just the start.

On March 14, 1980, President Jimmy Carter gave a televised speech from the East Room of the White House in which he told the American people that "persistent high inflation threatens the economic security of our country" and that the "dangerous situation calls for urgent measures."
A Time cover story on his speech explained: "his task was not just to proclaim another new anti-inflation program but to calm a national alarm that had begun to border on panic." Inflation, the magazine observed, was "rapidly becoming Carter's most dangerous political liability."
As lawmakers and commentators debated whether President Obama's $787 billion economic stimulus package would effectively combat unemployment and stagnation, less attention was paid to whether it would help trigger something more pernicious.
"I think a major inflation is a really big danger of where we stand now," John H. Cochrane, a professor of finance at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business, told TAS. "It's going to hurt all of us. A big inflation will come with economic chaos on a scale we haven't begun to see yet."
It would also hurt President Obama's political standing in a way that a deepening recession may not.
"He is probably going to be able to avoid blame for the recession for a long time because it started on Bush's watch," Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), who raised alarms about stagflation in a recent New York Times op-ed, said. "But I don't think he'll be able to avoid blame for the inflation that may follow."
A series of government policies designed to boost the economy and stabilize financial markets have made the prospect of inflation much more likely. To start, the federal government is facing deficits projected to be above a trillion dollars for the foreseeable future. When this is combined with the stimulus package, the multiple bailouts, the actions of the Federal Reserve Board, and the trillions in liabilities the government is taking on by purchasing troubled assets that could go bad, it means the federal government will end up with an unprecedented level of debt.READ THE REST by Phillip Klein on The American Spectator

A Fatal Trajectory - by Thomas Sowell
Monday, February 23, 2009
This is getting as much traction as the Magic Negro’s race speech in Philadelphia during the campaign.
I keep feeling compelled to bang something out on the keyboard because this is getting so much play. As I said before I wish I cared more about this issue, I just don’t get the obsession. Maybe I’m becoming to numb or insensitive to the issue. I mostly believe that we simply “over think” the issue.
Years ago I found the following that I posted on my old blog:
Whites, in fear of appearing racist, are likely to avoid contact with Blacks, according to a study from Northwestern University. The study, titled "The Threat of Appearing Prejudiced and Race-Based Attentional Biases," tested participants using Black and white faces with similar neutral expressions or similar happy expressions and showed that many whites "worry about inadvertently getting in trouble for somehow seeming biased," according to the study. "Think of it as initially turning your attention to something that poses a threat or causes anxiety and then ignoring it because you don't want to deal with it," said Jennifer A. Richeson, associate professor of psychology and African-American studies and faculty fellow at the Institute for Policy Research (IPR) at Northwestern. "These low-level psychological processes happen dynamically, and our tests indicate that people probably avoided the neutral black faces because they provoke anxiety, not necessarily because of racial animus."
I'll let you folks figure that logic, some folks are just hell bent on continuing to promote the idea that this nation is filled with a bunch of racist Negro hating cretins ignore the obvious result of the 2008 presidential race.
I understand that most Americans don't talk enough about race because they've learned from long experience that such efforts are often futile. White people in particular can’t win that argument so many are like why bother.
My friend who is black just went on and on about how the young white owner of this bar exhibited “racist” signals while serving us.
Without going into details of the restaurant experience itself, I understood how much of our restaurant encounter could be seen as “problematic” but to always underscore bad restaurant service with racism is quite a stretch in my book.
For me to always equate poor restaurant service with some sort of racial biased towards me reeks of narcissism. Poor restaurant in many cases is just that, poor service.
He (my black friend) accused me of having the “Republican” mindset of saying there is no racism, anywhere, anytime. Apparently all of us Negros are compelled to wear our “whitey racist shoulder chips” 24/7. Not speaking up and standing up to racist, bar and club owners or racist service is some sort of heresy.
I explained to him that I stopped giving white people the power to shape my mindset years ago. Besides when the color of my skin overshadows the color of the money in my pocket that person has much deeper issues far beyond what I care to deal with.
Lawrence is one of this nation’s hubs of liberalism, yet the Negros in this town are scarce. Negros don’t work here, even at the University, I always found it interesting that a town that celebrates a legacy of fighting against slavery is frankly a very uncomfortable place for Negros to work socialize or party for that matter.
I’ve had black dudes tell me that they avoid the bar scene here because of the unspoken easiness white folks here have with black people.
I know I’ve said many times that white people are unable to hide their feelings very well when it comes to black folks which is partly the reason why so many black folks keep the racial shoulder chip in place 24/7.
Nightlife venues here have been discouraged from having musical acts or D.J’s that play Hip Hop or rap type music because Lawrence was seen as neutral territory (between Topeka and Kansas City) for black folks to hang and party on Friday and Saturday nights, which then brought in your typical Negro criminal element.
Violence and robberies increased, white people became nervous so keeping venues as white as possible is the norm now.
But this is typical around the country not just here in Lawrence.
I was actually once stopped at the door by this redneck bouncer years ago of one club because I was told that the club had reached its capacity, which I knew was bullshit because I knew the owner and he had invited me to attend the event.
I remember being shocked initially but racial incidents seem to amuse me because many whites equate hostility towards Negros as some sort of power play when it actually shows redneck insecurity.
Recently I have been venturing out to various bars from time to time to shoot pool and have a beer and I will almost always be the lone darkie in any establishment and as I have said before this does not make me uncomfortable, I don’t know why even though many whites I encounter have a sort of uneasiness about me and I can tell it.
“oh there is a black guy in the place, no racist jokes if he looks at you smile and wave.”
However one thing that irks me is when I encounter white dudes that always address me as “Bro” which irritates the shit out of me.
If any of you white people who read this can explain why white dudes have this obsessive need to use Negro slang while talking to black folks or are insistent upon using “the brothas handshake” when greeting me, that is the more pertinent question to why some blacks cringe at the notion of hanging with white folks.
To me far too many white people (guys mostly) let their social/racial retardation get in the way of enjoying the company of people who are not like them also white people also feel the sudden urge to engage in Negro speak when hanging out with black folks when they are in the minority.
But hey despite all of that I’m doing my part to combat racism by going out to the occasional bar to show my willingness to socialize with white people.
Holder discussed weekend segregation as if it is just a matter of personal recreational choice: White folks go off to NASCAR and black people prefer to watch basketball.
But we don’t process the real reason Americans do not share racial vocabulary or opportunities for interracial dialogue is because of deeply entrenched racial residential and religious sponsored segregation.
If I’m not worthy enough to worship with you, I certainly would not be worthy enough to work with you, live next to you or party with you.
We don't spend our weekends together because we don't live in the same neighborhoods.
I read at one black website talking about Holder was the issue of housing segregation bemoaning the fact that housing segregation is not just a matter of personal choice noting that some real estate agents steer black families away from predominantly white neighborhoods. Some property owners refuse to rent to black families.
Take the work environment we can't talk our way out of employers who refuse to interview a job candidate if the name on the résumé "sounds black."
The obvious remedy is to not name your child after an adult beverage or a luxury automobile or some other fake ass African sounding name but hey…
There are hundred of thousands of acts of housing discrimination each year. Now I know we can't talk our way out of residential segregation, but I’ve also seen many black folks self segregating themselves too.
As a “community activist” back in the day I had black people tell me that they would rather live in a more crime ridden black neighborhood than live around white people who did not welcome them in the neighborhood.
News flash, white people are not under any obligation to make me feel welcomed and I’m not about to join in with the other race mongers on this never ending crusade to mentally crucify every white person who does not roll out the red carpet for me.
This is not just my personal take many of us Negros share the same view. Maybe the word got out and had not reached Mr. Holder by the time he gave that speech. LOL!
I’ve experienced countless bouts of racism, from growing up in racial isolation as a kid in Oakland to my job search years ago, to racial incidents at my places of work; some were amusing others not so much.
People I wish that I could be more philosophical on racial issues that divide us but I guess that I’ve simply learned to process racial matters from a more diplomatic perspective.
No matter what, I will always be a nigger to some and that type of mindset will always be at the core of any uneducated socially retarded Bubba.
The bottom line is this, incidents like the Imus controversy a couple of years back, this post cartoon controversy, Obama’s race speech, Rev Wright’s racial tirade and Holder's speech - are our national conversations on race. And they do not "foster a period of dialogue among the races," as Holder proposes. They foster anger, suspicion, and division. They consist of accusations, countercharges, and hard feelings and they are often difficult to understand. Get involved, and chances are you'll get burned.
Discussing these racial demons frankly to me is pointless, as long as folks differ on things from musical tastes, food choices, religious choices or favorite television shows we will forever seek out and find comfort with folks who are most like us.
Avoiding such dialogues isn't cowardice; it's common sense.
On Feb. 18, I warned about the ACORN civil disobedience mob working in ideological tandem with Barack Obama to bully Washington into passing a massive new foreclosure prevention/mortgage entitlement scheme. On Feb. 20, I noted that ACORN garnered nationwide media attention for breaking and entering into a foreclosed home in Baltimore at 315 South Ellwood Ave. ACORN vows to use “any means necessary” to stop foreclosures. Baltimore police have taken fingerprints at the break-in site and the current owner, William Lane, says he will sue ACORN. The home was sold in June 2008 for $192,000. This morning, ACORN official Louis Beverly will face a burglary charge. Look for the Left to turn him into a martyr.
It is not your home, ACORN.READ THE REST HERE
“The Magic Negro Misled Us!” - Maxine Waters on Real Time: Escalating the War In Afghanistan Isn't the Change We Wanted (Video)
It's not very often news breaks on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, but the season premiere Friday night did just that. Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat who co-founded the Out of Iraq Caucus, told Maher she is concerned about President Obama's announcement he is sending 17,000 more troops and support to Afghanistan. She was a Hillary Clinton backer during the primary fight, but said lots of complimentary things about Obama on Maher's show until she started talking about Afghanistan. Waters said the members of Congress' Progressive Caucus plan to tell Obama about their fears. "We don't want to substitute Afghanistan for Iraq," she said. "We don't want to send our young people off to war without really understanding what we're doing ... what I'm worried about is an expansion," Waters said.

Sean Penn uncorked several liberal political messages in his Oscar acceptance speech on Sunday night. He started like this: "You commie, homo-loving sons of guns! I did not expect this, and I wanted it to be very clear that I do know how hard I make it to appreciate me, often. I am touched by the appreciation, and enough that I wanted to scribble down, so I had the names, in case you were commie, homo-loving sons of guns."After he thanked all his assistants and fellow
Milk collaborators, he wrapped up:
Finally, for those – two last finally’s – for those who saw the signs of hatred as our cars drove in tonight, I think it is a good time for those who voted for the ban against gay marriage to sit and reflect, and anticipate their great shame and the shame in their grandchildren’s eyes if they continue that way of support. We’ve got to have equal rights for everyone. (Wild applause)
“The Post cartoon was provocative, but not racist. And it certainly was not an ‘invitation’ to assassinate President Obama. These are manufactured allegations by racist left-wing Democrat operatives. Sharpton, the NAACP, and their angry mob of supporters want to intimidate and silence independent media outlets like The New York Post and The FOX News Channel. The cartoon was poking fun at the ineptness of those who wrote the horrible stimulus welfare package—nothing more.
“I’ve said repeatedly on my national radio show that Barack Obama was elected because of white guilt and black racism. The majority of whites voted for Obama to prove once and for all that they don’t have racial hang-ups. Ninety-six percent of blacks voted for him because of his race. We now have the first black president and his party leading our nation towards socialism; and anyone who dares poke fun or criticize are racists?
“Most blacks see racism under every rock and newspaper because they’ve never repented of their anger and racism toward whites. But this so-called boycott is not about racism; it’s an attempt to muzzle free speech. And it’s apparent who the real monkey is in this circus.”
Last December Anh "Joseph" Cao became the first Vietnamese American ever to be elected to the United States Congress in the history of the country. But Black leaders in his District are not happy with his election. They've started a recall effort to boot him out of office.
According to the AP:
Cao's December election was a stunner. It dislodged once-powerful 18-year incumbent William Jefferson, a Democrat.. Cao, 41, rose to prominence in the 2nd Congressional District as an attorney, community activist and a leader in the recovery effort of a small but thriving Vietnamese community hit hard by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
But his two votes against President Barack Obama's stimulus package prompted the recall effort, said Rev. Aubry Wallace, chairman of the petition drive, and Rev. Toris Young, president of the Louisiana Ministerial Alliance of Churches for All People.
Cao and his aides defend the anti-stimulus vote, saying the package added too much to the national debt and a White House analysis indicate the plan would create few jobs in Cao's district.
"Our goal is to work with every body in the district," said Cao aide Murray Nelson. "We invite the ministers to join us."
Liberal Democrats and Leaders of the Black community in Louisiana have been particularly harsh towards Asian politicians in the State.
LA Pundits Glenn Ford and Peter Gamble for example made some blatantly racist comments after Indian-American Bobby Jindal won election as Governor.
"The ballot numbers testify that an American-born, converted Catholic scion of an upper caste Hindu family is still just a sand nigger to Bubba, who takes the creed of the White Man’s Party seriously." Black leaders in the Democrat Party more recently have been quite critical of Jindal's decision not to take Federal hand-outs from the stimulus package for the State.

On Wednesday, I said prepare for lawlessness as ACORN’s civil disobedience mob steps up pressure for President Obama’s mortgage entitlement expansion.
Well, are you ready, Baltimore? (Hat tip - Jeff Quinton) ACORN’s troops are breaking the padlocks and breaking into homes. And this is just the start. Caution: OBAMACORN at work.
A community organization breaks into a foreclosed home in what they are calling an act of civil disobedience.
The group wants to train homeowners facing eviction on peaceful ways they can remain in their homes.
Derek Valcourt reports their actions are not without controversy.
Near Patterson Park, the padlock on the door and the sign in the window tells part of Donna Hanks foreclosure story.
“The mortgage went up $300 in one month,” said Hanks, former homeowner.
She says the bank refused to modify her loan and foreclosed, kicking her out of the house in September.
The community group ACORN calls Hanks a victim of predatory lending.
“This is our house now,” said Louis Beverly, ACORN.
And on Thursday afternoon, they literally broke the foreclosure padlock right off the front door and then broke into the house, letting Hanks back in for the first time in months.
Other bystanders directed lewd acts at the firefighters, such as exposing their genitals, grabbing their crotch, and blowing kisses.
Shortly after the parade, the four firefighters filed a lawsuit against the City of San Diego. The first trial ended in a hung jury. However, the jurors of the retrial, which ended yesterday, found in favor of the four firefighters “on all nine questions in the verdict form,” reports the Thomas More Law Center.

Moran interviewed President Obama several times in the lead up to the election, and talked to him last week as well. "In some ways Barack Obama is the first president since George Washington to be taking a step down into the oval office. From visionary leader of a giant movement, now he's got an executive position that he has to perform in, in a way, and I think the coverage reflects that," he said.
Shortly after class, an economics student approaches his economics professor and says, "I don't understand this stimulus bill. Can you explain it to me?"
The professor replied, "I don't have any time to explain it at my office, but if you come over to my house on Saturday and help me with my weekend project, I'll be glad to explain it to you."
The student agreed. At the agreed-upon time, the student showed up at the professor's house. The professor stated that the weekend project involved his backyard pool.
They both went out back to the pool, and the professor handed the student a bucket. Demonstrating with his own bucket, the professor said, "First, go over to the deep end, and fill your bucket with as much water as you can."
The student did as he was instructed. The professor then continued, "Follow me over to the shallow end, and then dump all the water from your bucket into it."
The student was naturally confused, but did as he was told. The professor then explained they were going to do this many more times, and began walking back to the deep end of the pool.
The confused student asked, "Excuse me, but why are we doing this?"
The professor matter-of-factly stated that he was trying to make the shallow end much deeper.
The student didn't think the economics professor was serious, but figured that he would find out the real story soon enough. However, after the 6th trip between the shallow end and the deep end, the student began to become worried that his economics professor had gone mad.
The student finally replied, "All we're doing is wasting valuable time and effort on unproductive pursuits. Even worse, when this process is all over, everything will be at the same level it was before, so all you'll really have accomplished is the destruction of what could have been truly productive action!"
The professor put down his bucket and replied with a smile, "Congratulations. You now understand the stimulus bill."
The kind of post that will get my attention are those bloggers who:
1) Still blogging about Bush, Cheney, Rove
2) Bloggers lying about how Porkulus will create jobs and save the Union
3) I hate Palin posts, I hate Rush posts
4) Liberal blogs who use the term “wingnut” in the post, or bloggers who use Rachel Maddow, Keith Olberman or John Stewart or Media Matters as their information source.
5) Republicans are racist, race issues

AmericaBlog: Rove and Fox News continue to lie about Barney Frank and housing crisis
Shocking, I know, but what else are they going to do at this point? Whether they admit it or not, they know that they are the leaders in destroying the US economy and will be blamed for this for decades. Lying and dodging responsibility is what they do.
More from Media Matters:
During the February 18 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor, Fox News contributor Karl Rove falsely asserted that Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) "was one of the more prominent opponents of [housing] reform in 2004 and 2005." In fact, Frank supported efforts to enhance regulatory oversight on mortgage brokers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2005, and he has long championed policies that emphasize low-income home rentals as opposed to homeownership.

Pelosi Seems to Support Prosecution of Senior Bush Admin Officials
In today's Tim Dickinson interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Rolling Stone, it sure seems like she's leaning towards accountability for the criminals in the Bush Administration. Many of her words sound like the correct ones, even if she's a bit too enamored of Leahy's "Truth and Reconciliation Committee" proposal, which, among other "shameful" things, would likely results in a whole bunch of immunity, to a whole bunch of folks who deserve no such thing.
But she says she supports what Conyers is doing in the Judiciary Committee, in continuing to pursue Rove, Bolten and Miers. She says she can foresee a scenario in which senior members of the Administration are actually prosecuted. She says "The American people do not want wrongdoing to go unaddressed." She even said similar words to Fox "News" two days before the Inauguration.

From Wonkette: Holder’s ‘Bright Blue Scrotum’ A HOAX!
Well, libtard blogs, you have some explaining to do! Apparently John Gibson did not say anything about Eric Holder’s nethers at all. The audio was doctored by some sick pervert who thought it would be funny to suggest that John Gibson was scrotally obsessed, which he is not.
Huffington Post ran a video of this exchange with an altered soundtrack. They claimed Gibson said "Eric Holder and his bright blue scrotum". Their video was a fake. This is the actual broadcast.

Teh Stoopid of Santorum -- it burns
Holy mother of man-on-dog. How did this man get elected to the U.S. Senate? Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) was invited to give a lecture on Islam at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. As Think Progress noted, Little Ricky pontificated that "the American public knows too little about the Islamic faith" and then said this:
"A democracy could not exist because Mohammed already made the perfect law," Santorum said. "The Quran is perfect just the way it is, that's why it is only written in Islamic."Islam is not a language. The Quran was, of course, written in Arabic.
