meanwhile just sayin


If all these emotionally drained future litigators and social changers really gave a rat’s ass they’d be in Ferguson Missouri burning off some of their angst and cleaning up the town they helped destroy……..

…Although the demonstrations, which have also been taking place in other U.S. cities, could last for weeks in Ferguson, a sense of normalcy – or at least a new normal – has begun to settle on the city.

Police reopened several blocks of West Florissant that had been barricaded off since Tuesday, but only during daylight hours. And although most store windows are still boarded up, many now have spray-painted messages saying they are open and welcoming shoppers.

Some business owners spent an unseasonably warm Saturday tidying up, hoping that customers would soon return.

“There is no business,” said Nick Ahmed, 41, a native Palestinian who owns Elite Liquor on West Florissant. “I can’t pay the rent or my electric bills.”

Ahmed said he’s certain some of his fellow merchants will leave…

Obama kisses commie ass before Fidel dies …

… and before the new Congress can do anything about it.

The United States plans to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba more than 50 years after they were severed, a major policy shift after decades of hostile ties with the communist-ruled island, President Barack Obama said on Wednesday. [more]

[eight minutes of foul language and throwing things]

Who will Obama surrender to next, the frikkin’ NorKs ?

With Presidents like this, who needs enemies?

Seriously, dealing with this Administration's squirrel infestation is like, well … (BTF): »

On the other hand, this could mean that Obama has inside information that Fidel is about to die.
So there’s that …

A little dictator-to-dictator courtesy:

[D]uring President Barack Obama’s announcement … Cuban leader Raúl Castro dressed in his military uniform called on the Obama to use an executive order to lift the economic embargo imposed on Cuba by Congress. [story]

Can’t. There’s a law.
Well, okay, but evidently he can issue a memo directing the DOJ not to prosecute violators.

Hey, fair play for Cuba!

White House says JFK would back Obama. (see: update above)
Geezusmarionjosef! Do these people even listen to themselves?
Do they think we’re stupid?
Oh, wait …

today’s future waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaambulance chasers

For my first witness, I call……my Mommy…

Over the last week, much has been said about law students’ petitioning for exam extensions in light of the circumstances surrounding the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner at the hands of police officers. Students at Harvard Law School, Columbia Law School, Georgetown University Law Center and several other schools requested that their administrations allow extensions on final exams for students who have been confronting the aftermath of the recent failed grand jury indictments of the officers who killed the unarmed black men.

In response, opponents of exam extensions have declared that to grant these requests would be a disservice to the students. Law students, they argue, must learn how to engage critically with the law in the face of intense adversity. Drawing comparisons to events surrounding the Civil Rights Movement and other times of intense turmoil, these opponents portray today’s law students as coddled millennials using traumatic events as an excuse for their inability to focus on a three-hour exam. In essence, law students are being told to grow up and learn how to focus amidst stress and anxiety—like “real” lawyers must do.Speaking as one of those law students

over the last few weeks many law students have experienced moments of total despair, minutes of inconsolable tears and hours of utter confusion…the psychological trauma brought on by disillusionment with our justice system send some law students into a period of depression….Our focus and critical thinking are at an all-time peak

…to reduce our calls for exam extensions to mere cries for help exhibits a failure to understand the powerful images of die-ins and the booming chants of protestors disrupting the continuation of business…

…Each year as classes of law students enter and exit our nation’s legal institutions we are told the same thing: You are the future of the law

I’m ashamed to be in the same country with these two egotistical BS spewers.

The Obamas talked with People magazine about dealing with their “own racist experiences,” as the magazine described.

Michelle Obama told one story that recently took place, even as she was first lady of the United States. “I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new,” Michelle Obama, who is 5’11″, said.

So, a woman asking a taller woman for a little help reaching a high shelf is frikkin’ racist?
Sure, there’s even a chance she thought Michelle worked there. So friggin’ what?
Does Michelle think all Target employees are black?
What kind of warped mind interprets this incident as racism or even bias?
Prob’ly one who’s actually peeved that “she didn’t see me as the first lady,” that’s what kind.
Geezusmarionjosef …

She also said that her husband, Barack Obama, was asked to get coffee when he was wearing a tux. “He was wearing a tuxedo at a black-tie dinner, and somebody asked him to get coffee,” she told People.

Yep, racism for sure. No chance of an honest mistake.
I mean, it’s not like Hillary telling military officers to serve drinks at a White House function.

The president told his own experiences. “There’s no black male my age, who’s a professional, who hasn’t come out of a restaurant and is waiting for their car and somebody didn’t hand them their car keys,” …. [story]

I’ll bet that there are at least a dozen black male professionals his age who haven’t even come out of a restaurant with valet parking, much less been handed keys.
Besides, being trusted with an expensive car doesn’t sound much like racism.
Bein’ mistaken for a valet might be seen as an unfortunate bias, but hardly racism.
Good thing he didn’t put his hands up.

First, I don’t believe them. Surely, there must be more-serious examples to give.
Second, if these were true, then they should quit behaving like responsible, helpful people who actually work for a living.
Oh, wait …

I, uhm, uh … just noticed that this topic was posted below.
Since folks already commented, here, I can’t take it down, now.
Forget I posted this in a hurry then sped off without double-checking. It didn’t happen. I’ll deny it.
Be merciful and comment on the post below, willya?
[scrambles off protecting head and butt]

*bwahahahahahahahahaha!*
[stomps feet, pounds desk, slides off chair in a paroxysm of laughter]

BUSTED!

In an interview on David Letterman recounting the experience, [Michelle] had a slightly different story:

“No one knew that was me. Because a woman actually walked up to me, right? I was in the detergent aisle, and she said — I kid you not — she said, ‘Excuse me, I just have to ask you something.’ And I thought, ‘Oh, cover’s blown.’ She said, ‘Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?’ I kid you not. And the only thing she said — I reached up, because she was short, and I reached up, pulled it down. She said, ‘Well, you didn’t have to make it look so easy.’ That was my interaction. I felt so good.” [story]

Yeah, she’s a total Gruber.
Totally.

today’s audience participation: your own racist experience

they practically lynched her

I, too, have had the exact same racist experience having NUMEROUS times been asked to help a shorter person get something up high off of a shelf! And my very own husband was denied initial union membership when he first began his career because although his exam score was one of the highest, they needed a black person with a lower score to fill their racist quota.

But I have to say NO ONE ever handed ME their car keys because I’ve never been waiting for a valet to fetch my car………

today’s schadenfreude

Gee, I hate when that happens

Ting Su … caught her husband and [her twin sister] cheating on her and tracked them down to a shopping centre using a mobile phone tracker. She [found her] husband … completely naked in a car along with her sister. They both jumped out of the car with not a thread of clothing.

But Ting saw her opportunity, jumped into the car and drove off, leaving the embarrassed pair where they stood. [story with pics]

Wellp, reckon that’s gonna make the family Christmas dinner kind’a, you know … awkward.

(What? Well, sure, but my fantasies include either A) both twins at the same time or B) their trading-off to fool me.)

The Narrators – Rampin’ it Up

“mokita”

Update on Bezerekeley Prooootests today:

“There’s a war on black people and the police are the army in that war,” [organizer Narrator Cat] Brooks said. “We are on the precipice … of a new civil rights movement.”

IF one were to believe that line of …um, propaganda, it’s only one logical step to this:

A group of demonstrators was also videotaped marching through Murray Hill chanting, “What do we want? Dead Cops! When do we want it? Now!”

Which prompts ill-considered ventures onto TehTwit like this:

…off-duty social media posts… from [veteran San Jose police officer] Phillip White prompted an avalanche of criticism and calls for his dismissal. … “Threaten me or my family and I will use my God given and law appointed right and duty to kill you. #CopsLivesMatter.”

…[said some SJ spokes…person:] “It is extremely important for the community to know the comments made on Officer White’s private social media account do not reflect the thoughts or feelings of the men and women here at the San Jose Police Department. Nor do we condone this type of behavior.”

Bet me that doesn’t reflect “the thoughts or feelings of the men and women” who have to face these rioters in the streets every freakin’ day since before Thanksgiving [or since August, for those in MO].

Ok — Phil White did let his goat be gotten and showed dreadful judgement — as a cop — tweeting stuff like this:

Though, with propaganda like this, whaddya think is going to / being engineered to happen? A classic case of Let’s You And Him Fight.

The protesters said every 28 hours in the U.S., a black man is killed by police, private security or a vigilante.

Where are all these “vigilnante” killings?!? You think MSLSD would’ve mentioned at least one

Some more interesting thoughts here:

One of my favorite words is “mokita” which means the truth everyone knows but agrees not to discuss. Every culture has things like that.

Nobel Peace Prizes cause terrorism …

… much as defending ourselves against Islamic terrorism does, evidently.

The Taliban has killed dozens of children at a Peshawar school in a revenge mission for Pakistani schoolgirl activist Malala Yousafzai being awarded the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.

[I]nsurgents had various reasons to attack the school, one of which was to send a message to the supporters of Malala, who advocates education for women and children. [more]

Taliban terrorists allegedly burned a teacher alive and made the students watch during their attack on a Pakistan school which left over 130 people dead. [More than 100 of the dead were school children.]

“Some of the bodies brought to hospital during the Peshawar school attack have been headless ….” [more]

But that’s okay, Obama probably thinks that they weren’t real Muslims.
