“I'm very excited that Joy Reid is finally getting her own show. She doesn't interrupt nor talk over people like Chris Matthews, but she takes no crap, and always has original take on issues.

Now, if we could just get MSNBC as a network to report on news stories other than Chris Christie's scandals du jour!”

Kordale And Kaleb, Gay Black Fathers, Respond To Twitter Outrage Over Instagram Photos

“Great family, great photos. If they had been two black men selling drugs, or carrying weapons, or being perp-walked or handcuffed on a cop show, no one would have protested the images, because the images fit media stereotypes about black men.

But because they are joyfully taking care of their children, and don't look obviously drag queenish or butch-femme, this is somehow outrageous to people? Watch out, folks - the human race in its infinite variety will surprise you every time.”

New Obamacare Ads Use Party Girls, Bloody Kids And Keg-Stands (Again) To Sell Insurance

Commented Nov 13, 2013 at 07:42:40 in Politics

“Shocker- People under 30 behave in risky ways: sports, shots, casual sex. And it's a good thing to have insurance to cover them so that they don't end up with a huge ER bill which wrecks their credit and costs us all more money when they can't pay it.

These ads are exaggerated, but they are funny. I checked with my son and nephews , who are in this target demographic, and guess what?They found them to be funny and appealing.

I don't like the poor grammar, but that's a pretty weak beef compared with the greater societal good of providing access to healthcare for all. it is time that the USA joined the rest of the industrialized world in providing public insurance.”

“The National Rifle Association passes money around this way - There are several NRA PACS, specific issue oriented state NRA committees which pop up, do their dirty work, and then inactivate. There is an NRA foundation. There are NRA Special Contribution Funds. There is the NRA Institute for Legislative Action. http://www.nraila.org/ There is an NRA Civil Defense Fund.
And all of these can and do pass money (hundreds of millions of dollars per year) around between themselves. A look at the IRS records of the National Rifle Association is dizzying- one needs a flow chart to keep track.”

“Gross. I actually heard someone say this in a school today, and had no idea what they were talking about until now.
Wise up - Most Americans, unless they are Native Americans, are citizen children of undocumented parents at some point in their family histories. We are all "children of the corn."”

“The Citizens United ruling makes it harder to trace finances for political 527, 501 C3 and C4, charities, and fundraising PACS. Basic Freedom and Rights, for example, has hired a publicist, Jennifer Kerns, who routinely lies and distorts Morse and Giron's record. Yet BFDF's finances are hidden, because of Citizens United. The Koch brothers PAC, Americans for Prosperity, has a Colorado branch, AFP Colorado, which is now paying for canvassers and ads against John Morse in Colorado Springs. http://bit.ly/15dydSA

Yet AFPs finances are hidden until 2014 tax return deadline, and donors may be hidden for longer, because of the Citizens United ruling. Ordinary citizens can no longer easily see who's trying to buy their democracy.

“I used to believe that a purpose of prison was to rehabilitate people so that they could return to society. I think that's still a purpose, on paper, part of a mission statement. But I quickly learned better when my own family member became involved in the system. As an old lady said in court, shaking her head sadly, " No one gets rehabilitated. No one gets helped."

But the reality is that prisons are short staffed, and, with the best of intentions, don't have the ability to treat the 40% of inmates who come in with mental illness and/or addictions.

One psychiatrist and two nurses for the entire Jefferson County jail population of 1300 male and female inmates. So if someone is screaming and threatening to harm themselves, they are put in solitary, because there is nothing else for them, and staff doesn't want them to disturb the other inmates.

No therapy, only evangelical christian AA groups, maybe a counselor visit once a week, meds after two weeks if they're lucky. And prisoners have to pay for any mental health or physical health visits out of their own funds.”

“So here's how you do research: You go to the source (don't take anyone's word for a quote by a 3rd party). So I looked up PWOODS #C3E on Twitter. His tweets, while full of sex and n___ this & that, and which show he is no Zimmerman fan, do not actually include any direct threats to Zimmerman. In other words, the Blaze made it up. This is what these sites do. Wise up.”

“Blaze didn't make it up, they captured the screen shot before the person deleted that tweet. Are you you that unintelligent that you don't understand that? ”
