Crime... Felons..Schools & Obama Broken Promise... a possible switch in VP slot...

SJC: Online messages can't be used to convict sexual predators
BOSTON — A man who attempted to lure an undercover agent posing as a 13-year-old girl into sexual relations had his convictions thrown out Friday, disappointing prosecutors and prompting a state senator to say she’d push for updates to the obscenity laws.

The overturned convictions were the result of a Supreme Judicial Court opinion that laws barring the dissemination of obscene “matter” to minors do not extend to online conversations.

The court reviewed copies of internet conversations in which the Plymouth County man, Matt Zubiel, under the online moniker ILikeSports04, asked a deputy county sheriff, Melissa Marino, pretending to be 13-year-old Meliss Smith, if “[You] ever fool around with boys?" and attempting to schedule a time to meet her.

But the court said that while state statute prohibits handwritten or printed forms of the messages Zubiel was sending, existing law is too vague to convict him for sending the messages through an instant message or online chat.
Negro parents of vicious thug arrested for witness intimidation.
Police have arrested the parents of a suspect in the killing of an elderly parishioner in a church parking lot, alleging the couple threatened to kill a witness.
Youngstown police arrested 46-year-old John Houser and 48-year-old Frances Cianciola Friday.
They are the parents of 18-year-old Jamar Houser. He’s in jail on a $3 million bond on charges of aggravated murder and aggravated robbery.
Jamar Houser was arrested Jan. 29 in connection with the shooting death six days earlier of Angeline Fimognari (fihm-eh-NAHR’-ee).
Investigators say the 80-year-old woman was shot in the head in her car during a robbery at St. Dominic Roman Catholic Church.
But Gaius how do you know the killer was black? HERE
The Washington Post failed to mention the race of the killer or victim. Why does that matter? Well Negros are always bitching about the racist criminal justice system and how whitey has got it in for Negros, but what Negros can’t seem to get a grasp on is niggas are doing dumb violent shit to get their asses sent to prison. Then you compound the stupidity with the parents engaging in criminal behavior. So guess where the 18 year old got his criminal training from? You got it, clueless fuck parents.

SHOCKING! Obama really does not give a shit about black children
Administration Again Cuts Funding for Scholarship Program That Helps Low-Income D.C. Kids - CNS News

(CNSNews.com) - In his fiscal 2011 budget, President Barack Obama makes further cuts in funding for the District of Columbia's Opportunity Scholarship Program for low-income, mostly minority students.

Obama stopped funding altogether for the OSP in his 2010 fiscal year budget, but after protests from parents and school choice advocates, the administration decided to let children already receiving scholarships continue to do so until they graduate from high school.

In the new budget, however, funding for the OSP is slashed by $4 million -- from $13 million to $9 million – $1 million of which is for administrative costs.

The administration has said the money is enough to keep the president's pledge, but critics charge that the cut in funding is another sign that the president and Education Secretary Arne Duncan are dedicated to ending the program, which began in 2004 as a way to allow disadvantaged children to attend high-performing private schools they otherwise could not afford. "I don't understand how (Obama) can sleep at night knowing he is killing a program that has helped so many kids," Virginia Walden Ford, a longtime school choice activist and founder of DC Parents for School Choice, told CNSNews.com. "It's painful. It's heartbreaking."

Another Obama Promise Broken - July 2009

Broken Promises Shatter Hopes for DC Families


President Obama recently promised to continue funding the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program by allowing students currently enrolled to complete their education. This decision will prevent many students from being forced from their schools of choice, but it fails to help the thousands of DC parents who hoped to use vouchers in the future to rescue their children from poorly performing and unsafe schools.

Even more egregiously, President Obama's promise failed to account for 216 students who received letters of acceptance into the voucher program for the upcoming school year. In April, these 216 students and their parents received letters informing them that the voucher program would be ending and that their scholarships were no longer forthcoming.
A Thousand Points of Lightness - The American Spectator

Milton Berle was at a party in D.C. once and, making conversation over cocktails, he asked a fellow: "Have you heard the latest gag about the White House?"

"I beg your pardon," the man sniffed. "I happen to work at the White House."

"That's all right," Milty reassured him. "I'll tell it slow."

Today's occupants of the alabaster demesne seem hardly swifter. Early in the health-care campaign they staged an event on the lawn with a 150 tame doctors (the CL of approval?) touting Obama's health-care nostrums… and they handed out the white hospital coats themselves. This was not what we thought they meant by transparency.

All in all, the faux pas was less disquieting than the faux pose. A debate is putatively being conducted over fraught matters concerning 300 million lives and untold trillions of dollars. The most substantive contribution the administration could offer was this claque of hacks. Forget the coats: the real props here were the medicos themselves!

Americans Lack Confidence in Obama’s Terror Policy - Human Events

Last week Dennis Blair, the Director for National Intelligence, testified he is “certain” there will be an attempted terrorist attack in the U.S. in the next three to six months, but he provided no details or assurances the Obama administration is doing anything to stop it. Blair’s unsupported warning is another example of why average Americans are losing confidence in President Obama’s ability to protect the country.

Blair’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee was much starker than his view last year, which emphasized considerable progress against al Qaeda. Blair and other intelligence officials told a Senate committee that al Qaeda had adjusted its tactics to more effectively strike American targets domestically and abroad.

But Blair left the public in the dark after predicting “certain” attempts to attack the homeland. What kind of attack is he “certain” of? A sack of anthrax spores released in a shopping mall, a dirty bomb exploded outside a federal building or another 9/11-like hijacking that turns airliners into missiles? Blair’s failure to calm public angst with even a few details is an example of why this administration is losing America’s confidence.

New errors in IPCC climate change report

The United Nations panel on climate change is facing fresh criticism as The Sunday Telegraph reveals new factual errors and poor sources of evidence in its influential report to government leaders.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) report is supposed to be the world’s most authoritative scientific account of the scale of global warming.

But this paper has discovered a series of new flaws in it including:

*The publication of inaccurate data on the potential of wave power to produce electricity around the world, which was wrongly attributed to the website of a commercial wave-energy company.

*Claims based on information in press releases and newsletters.

*New examples of statements based on student dissertations, two of which were unpublished.

*More claims which were based on reports produced by environmental pressure groups.

They are the latest in a series of damaging revelations about the IPCC’s most recent report, published in 2007.

Last month, the panel was forced to issue a humiliating retraction after it emerged statements about the melting of Himalayan glaciers were inaccurate.

Obama Could Dump Biden for Clinton as VP in 2012

Elevating Clinton to the vice presidential slot would accomplish several objectives: It would appeal to female voters and the still-powerful cadre of Clinton admirers, give Obama more of a pragmatic luster, and shunt the gaffe-prone Biden aside. And it would theoretically discourage Clinton, a former senator from New York, from challenging Obama in the 2012 primaries, Democratic insiders say, because as vice president she would be considered Obama's heir for 2016. Clinton would be 69 that year, the same age as Ronald Reagan when he won the presidency in 1980.

I know all conservatives are not racists, Magic-y, but that does not mean they would let you live next door. I would welcome you as a next door neighbor.

Perhaps, just perhaps, as said in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," a few readings of Howard Zinn will turn you around.

Oh lefty I grew up as the only black kid in a neighborhood in Oakland one of the most "liberal" cities in the most "liberal" area in the country and I was subjected to more racist crap including crap from teachers at my elementary school.

Political affiliation is not what makes you racist. It is ignorance.
