Joan Rivers can dish it out, but she can’t take it


Joan Rivers can be crude and mean. Her show Fashion Police is her pulpit. She says things about celebrities that make people gasp, but that is what Rivers does. She goes for the shock value, but she does not like sitting on the hot seat. She is a bully who cloaks her meaness in humor. Well, yesterday when she started to feel uncomfortable she left the interview showing she can dish it out, but she can’t take it.

When did Hillary Clinton become Mitt Romney?


Hillary Clinton has not declared her candidacy for president, but she is the talk of the political world. She said when she and President Clinton left the White House they were “flat broke”. No one in their right mind really thought they were broke. She exaggerated in her zeal to appear that she was just like us “regular folks”. She is not. She is rich like most people who run for president. The key is to be comfortable with your wealth and stop the charade. Mitt Romney got crucified not because of his wealth, but because of his disdain for the 47%. He was out of touch with regular folks, and so is Clinton, but the difference is Clinton was once a member of the regular folk club, and maybe just maybe she might learn how to relate to them again.

Civil Rights Group Urges President Obama and Congress to Take a Stand Against Discriminatory Profiling

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – June 24, 2014

ColorofChange.org, Members of Congressional Black Caucus and other civil rights groups Ask President for Federal Law Enforcement Guidance to Curb Racial Profiling
New York, NY – ColorOfChange.org, the nation’s largest online civil rights organization, urges President Obama to take immediate action to close discriminatory profiling loopholes for Federal law enforcement, and urges Congress to pass the Eliminate Racial Profiling Act (ERPA).
“While the President has the authority to reduce profiling abuses by Federal law enforcement, Congress can go many steps further by passing the The Eliminate Racial Profiling Act (S. 1038 / H.R. 2851), said Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org. “This legislation provides an opportunity to fix a major broken piece of our criminal justice system and address a law enforcement culture that has forced millions of Black folks to live in fear and cast entire communities as suspect.” Targeted profiling by law enforcement across the country, including by federal law enforcement is part of a deeply racist, brutal culture that is in desperate need of reform. These discriminatory practices cause tremendous harm to Black families and communities and can lead to unlawful arrests, deportations, incarceration and in some cases serious injury or death. Blacks folks are twice as likely to be arrested and almost four times as likely to experience the use of force during encounters with police. “By taking a stand against discriminatory profiling, President Obama and Congress can send a strong message that they intend to protect the civil rights and liberties of our nation’s increasingly diverse communities, help rebuild the trust in law enforcement and go a long way toward ensuring equal treatment under the law for all individuals regardless of race or ethnicity,” said Robinson. Today leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Black Caucus, Hispanic Caucus and Asian Pacific American Caucus joined other members of Congress and civil rights advocates to call on the Obama administration to issue improved profiling guidance for federal law enforcement that closes current loopholes.

GOP and Dems Sing We Shall Overcome on the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act…is this what unity looks like?


When I saw this today I thought about something my pastor says,”you can tie the tales of two cats together and they will be unified, but they will not be in unity.”*

*No cats were harmed in this analogy.
