Well yours did. It was an ex"honey" and bringing home $200 a night was not unusual l. It was by no means the minimum she brought home and I never said it was.
Not sure what you proxy rant is supposed to mean.
Is an ex honey anything like a previous honey?

A grand per week, some tax free in CA may not be a big deal given the cost of living in much of that state. A grand per week around here for serving in a mid scale restaurant would definitely be a big deal particularly if it was a restaurant that offered benefits including health insurance. Here a beginning school teacher's pay is around $30,000, a beginning cop less than that__see where I'm going here dummy?

There was no proxy rant__certainly you have come to grips with the fact that many posting on this thread are trolls/flame warriors using multiple IP proxies? Hide my ass-TOR etc .

Viola Fauver Gregg Liuzzo (April 11, 1925 – March 25, 1965) was a Unitarian Universalist civil rights activist from Michigan, who was murdered by Ku Klux Klan members after the 1965 Selma to Montgomery marches in Alabama. One of the Klansmen in the car from which the shots were fired was a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) informant.[1]

Liuzzo's name is one of those inscribed on a civil rights memorial in the state capital. She died at the age of 39.

Kissimmee Kowboys iirc, back in the days when Kissimmee actually had real cowboys, the Partins for instance and the Bronsons. Not too many black families back then eh Carol, the Rivers family comes to mind but when you went to HS the blacks had their own "separate but equal" schools which lasted through the sixties and in many Central Florida counties well into the seventies.

But of course you're very well rounded right? LMAO!

Liuzzo was horrified by the images of the aborted march on March 7, 1965 at the Edmund Pettus Bridge which became known as "Bloody Sunday." Nine days later, she took part in a protest at Wayne State. She then called her husband to tell him she would be traveling to Selma, saying that the struggle "was everybody's fight."

After the march concluded on March 25, Liuzzo, assisted by Leroy Moton, a 19-year-old African American, helped drive local marchers to African American colleges and to their homes in her 1963 Oldsmobile. As they were driving along Route 80, a car tried to force them off the road. A car with four Klan members then pulled up alongside Liuzzo's car and shot directly at her, hitting her twice in the head, killing her instantly. Her car veered into a ditch and crashed into a fence.[3]

Although Moton was covered with blood, the bullets had missed him. He lay motionless when the Klansmen reached the car to check on their victims. After the car left, he began running for the next half hour looking and searching for help, and eventually flagged down a truck driven by Rev. Leon Riley that was bringing civil rights workers back to Selma.

Liuzzo's funeral was held at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic church on March 30 in Detroit, with many prominent members of both the civil rights movement and government there to pay their respects. Included in this group were Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; NAACP executive director Roy Wilkins; Congress on Racial Equality national leader James Farmer; Michigan lieutenant governor William G. Milliken; Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa; and United Auto Workers president Walter Reuther.

Less than two weeks after her death, a charred cross was found in front of four Detroit homes, including the Liuzzo residence.

"REAL BLACKMAN"??? More in the mold of Herman Cain, no doubt?(From 2010)"n leaving an early-morning voicemail for Professor Anita Hill, insisting that she apologize to Clarence Thomas for "what you did with my husband", Ginni Thomas has re-ignited scrutiny into Thomas’ testimony at his confirmation hearing. That scrutiny does not leave the Supreme Court justice in a flattering light. In fact, yet another credible witness has come forward today, adding one more person relating a nearly identical description of Thomas’ outrageous behavior toward women (pdf) and his obsession with pornography. With multiple victims of Thomas’ inappropriate behavior coming forward, the question now must be asked why we allow a Supreme Court justice to remain on the bench when it is clear that he committed perjury in his confirmation hearing by categorically denying confirmed events.

Today’s Washington Post carries a long article about Lillian McEwen, who met Thomas in 1979 and dated him from 1981 to 1986. McEwen confirms to the Post Thomas’ obsession with pornography and his objectification of women in the workplace:

"He was obsessed with porn," she said of Thomas, who is now 63. "He would talk about what he had seen in magazines and films, if there was something worth noting."

McEwen added that she had no problem with Thomas’s interests, although she found pornography to be "boring."

According to McEwen, Thomas would also tell her about women he encountered at work. He was partial to women with large breasts, she said. In an instance at work, Thomas was so impressed that he asked one woman her bra size, McEwen recalled him telling her."

SAN DIEGO — A Marine Corps survey found that about 17 percent of male Marines would likely leave the Corps if women move into combat positions. The number jumped to 22 percent if women were assigned involuntarily to those jobs, according to the survey.
Both sexes surveyed mentioned intimate relationships between Marines and feeling obligated to protect female Marines among their top five concerns about allowing women into ground combat jobs.
Women Marines listed among their top three concerns enemies targeting women as POWs, the risk of sexual harassment or assault and hygiene requirements.
...valid concerns.
As well they should..."Some have also suggested that the ban is partially to blame for a spate of sexual assaults that have plagued the military. Last year, Panetta suggested that the number of sex assaults in the U.S. armed forces could be as high as 19,000 a year.

“The military has long been a culture of misogyny. As long as military women did not have equal treatment from the top – the Pentagon – they were often treated as second class at best, sexual prey at worst,” Helen Benedict, author of “The Lonely Soldier: The Private War of Women Serving in Iraq” and a journalism professor at Columbia University, told IPS.

“Disrespect lies at the root of misogyny, and misogyny lies at the root of sexual assault. A culture takes a long time to change, but officially recognising women as equal will help to change it.”

Speaking with Panetta at the public announcement on Thursday, General Martin Dempsey, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which spearheaded the new policy change, acknowledged that the U.S. military has an “ongoing issue with sexual harassment and sexual assault”.

Born Essie Mae Moody, she was the oldest of nine children. After her parents split up, she grew up with her mother, Elmira aka Toosweet, in Centreville, Mississippi, while her father lived in nearby Woodville. At a young age she began working for white families in the area, cleaning their houses and helping their children with homework for only a few dollars a week, while earning perfect grades in school and helping at church. In the community she often heard stories of interracial sexual abuse, miscegenation, lynching, arson and other acts of racial intimidation. After graduating with honors from a segregated, all-black high school, she attended Natchez Junior College (also all black) in 1961 under a basketball scholarship.

Then she moved on to Tougaloo College on an academic scholarship to earn a bachelor's degree. At Tougaloo, she became involved with the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. After graduation, Moody became a full-time worker in the Civil Rights Movement, participating in a Woolworth's lunchcounter sit-in and protests in Jackson. During Freedom Summer, she worked for CORE in the town of Canton.
