Country Hip-hop Racism Charge
Brad Paisley and LL Cool J in bruhaha

It only took a few hours for a six-minute song about race to spark a backlash after its release Monday.
The song by the unlikely duo of Brad Paisley and LL Cool J, "Accidental Racist," was slammed by
music critics and fans alike for its attempt at a dialogue on race between two men from starkly different
backgrounds with lyrics like "If you don't judge my do-rag … I won't judge your red flag" and
"If you don't judge my gold chains … I'll forget the iron chains."
The country singer, 40, and his rapper counterpart, 45, say the national debate sparked by their song,
released on Paisley's new album, "Wheelhouse," is exactly what they wanted to happen.
"I'm not really sure we're going to find any answers but it was the idea that we were asking the question,"
Paisley said with his duet partner on " Good Morning America."
"Martin Luther King says that darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can," LL Cool J said.
"Hate can't drive out hate, only love can. So what we're talking about is compassion."

 Subject: Don't worry about North Korea

I have one word for you for why you don’t need to worry about North Korea, China.
They are completely dependent on them for everything, and China has had about enough.
“On Sunday, China’s new president, Xi-Jinping, stated “no one should be allowed to throw
a region and even the whole world into chaos for selfish gains.” The unusually harsh tone
came a day after Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told UN Secretary General that China
“does not allow any trouble making on China’s doorstep.”    Link

Thing is, it is in China’s best interest to keep the status quo (keeps us from focusing on Taiwan,
among other things) and if they play this right and let things escalate a bit more, they get to
swoop in and play hero. It’s in our best interest that they do step in, and all our rhetoric is
aimed at pushing them to do so. Remember that the only reason there is a North Korea is
because China intervened in the Korean war, otherwise, the South was winning.

Also keep in mind that China has some significant financial
and trade interests with South Korea as well as with us.
I think they are just trying to figure out how to put that
little shit in a time out without upsetting the status quo.

Bloomberg to Rank Gun Nuts
  by Sarah Parnass


A coalition of U.S. mayors released plans this morning to take members of Congress to task
for what the group perceives as votes against gun control.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Bloomberg's group, will give lawmakers a letter grade and
issue a scorecard based on their gun-policy record, a spokesman said.
The system is intended to counterbalance the NRA's scoring political candidates on their
friendliness toward gun owners.  The NRA's letter ratings have translated to bribes for
candidates who score favorably, and the organization has used the process as a tool of i
nfluence on hot-button political debates, like Justice Kagan's confirmation, which they lost.

Butt Mike, the whore NRA's already done your work for you.

If the NRA gives Jim Inofe a TEN, you'd give him a zero, right?
If the NRA gives Dennis Kucinich a zero, that's a TEN for the Bloomberg folks, right?

Work smarter, not harder.

 Subject: Ted Rall

I think Ted is right using the word foreigners instead of terrorists.

Unless you think that that all of those drone attacks had smart bombs that could only hurt
terrorists and magically did not kill women and children that were in those same buildings.

For some reason I can't get people to focus on the three options:
1. We can do nothing and let the terrorists build more and more airplane bombs.
2. We can have our military invade every country that is arming terrorists.
3. We can use drones.

Those to my Left on this question are strongly against 2 and 3.
I like Option 3, I must assume you prefer Option 1.


Here is my question to you.  If you are told someone is a terrorist does that make it OK
to do whatever is necessary to eliminate them? Even if that includes killing others around them
which might include children?  I think Americans are being increasingly brought to the position
of "hell yeah!".  And that makes me sad where our country is going.
 Bill inTN

Bill, nobody wants kids to die but this is the real world with real dangers.
Doing nothing while terrorists build more and more airplane bombs is not keeping America safe.

They Rape Kids in Los Angeles
LA Diocese to pay $10,000,000 to sex victims


While its former leader, Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, gathered with cardinals in Rome to choose
the new pro-rape pope, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles reached a $10 million settlement with four men
who say they were abused by a former priest who has been criminally convicted in a separate case.

Damn, $2.5 million per victim?

At that rate, the Church will be broke by Saturday.

Behind the North Korea Crisis
Opinions or facts?  from


Reporter: There’s a lot of disinformation and patriotic reporting coming out of the U.S. 
               Tell us what is going on right now.
Christine Hong, a professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz, H:  All we see
is media reporting that singularly ascribes blame to North Korea, which is portrayed as a kind
of unquestionable evil, so what the U.S. is doing in response to the supposed provocation seems
eminently justified. I think we are in a crisis point.  It doesn’t feel dissimilar to the kind of media
rhetoric that surrounded the run-up to the U.S. invasion in Iraq. During that time also, there was
a steady drumbeat to war. …

Whoa! is acting like this lady is THE American expert on North Korea.
This Hong lady might be honest and she might be right but she's anything but unbiased.
She's not framing anything as "The way I see it" or "In my opinion," she's giving us FACTS.

You say:
singularly ascribes blame to North Korea

Really? It's wrong to blame the nutjob screaming "I'll nuke your f-ing asses?"
Kim Jong Nut is
is portrayed as a kind of unquestionable evil?
How lucky we are that Ms. Hong sees the softer side of nuclear blackmail.

And, of course, this "feels" JUST LIKE the Bush-Cheney-Rummy lies because all
circumstances are the same, all presidents are the same and all lies are of equal value.
In a recent Pentagon press conference, [Defense Secretary] Chuck Hagel was asked whether or not
the U.S. sending D2 stealth bombers from Missouri to fly and conduct a sortie over South Korea and
drop what the DOD calls inert munitions in a simulated run against North Korea could be understood as
provocative. He said no, they can’t be understood as provocative. And it was dutifully reported as such.

There you go again.
IS that provacative?  You sure make it sound so, but with your obvious bias,
we wouldsn't know if they've been running this same exercise every year since 1956.

Wouldn't it make more sense to stay somewhat neutral?
You make is sound like Wartime Barry is threatening Good Ol' Kim for no reason.

What has happened since Kim Jong Un has come into his leadership position
in North Korea is that the U.S. has had a policy of regime change.

Is this policy of regime change a STATED Obama position?
Or did you have another "feeling" and failed to tell us.

BTW, Ms Hong, your word and the President's don't hold equal weight.

I'll believe him over you until I have a reason not to.

You have not served the "Kim isn't that bad" side very well.

Thatcher Wrecked Great Britain
She was Reagan with a larger vagina


It would be a crime to allow hagiography and personality to distract from
what made her so deeply despised: She ruined Britain.

Let’s skip the rise-to-power biographical crap — watch the Meryl Streep movie — and get
to the point. She intentionally immiserated millions of English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish people
in order to carry out a liberalization of the British economy that benefited the wealthy at the
expense of nearly everyone else. Decades after she left office, the country hasn’t recovered.

As the trade unions were broken “The City” — London’s Wall Street — experienced the deregulation
and subsequent astronomic growth that would eventually lead to Libor-rigging and, paired with similar
deregulatory efforts in the States, the spectacular international financial catastrophe itself.

What sole nation has so far -- in all human history -- used fission weapons (TWO of them)
against a non-nuclear enemy murdering hundreds-of-thousands of non-combatant lives in order
to not win (that was already in the bag) make a perverted political statement?

I hope your vaunted IQ doesn't get in the way of an honest answer.

Dan, honesty is my specialty.
I"m guessing you want me to say "America" but your statement means nothing.

When they found Nicole Simpson, what if the detectives had said,
"O.J. could NOT have done this - because what Heisman Trophy winner
 in all of history ever tried to cut his wife's head off?"

Those on my Left keeping saying, "A nuclear madman isn't a danger because..."

Bart, that's a 1959 Chevrolet Impala.  The Washington State Patrol purchased
a fleet of the !959 Chevys, but after a few high-speed chases, they got rid of them. 
They were fast with the 348 cu. inch engine, but the fins created the opposite effect
of a spoiler, causing the rear tires to almost float at speeds above 120 mph. making it
necessary to break off the chase.
