Like I said, there won't be anything left to steal in your neighborhood. We know you'll be coming to see us. You know you'll be coming to see us. And, it looks like this gun-control bullshit is getting shoved up Obama's ass.
See you then. Perhaps we can enjoy some lemon-ade together with Mimosas. That would be really nice.

The chances of Hillary getting the nomination without serious opposition are very small.
Look for an Obama surrogate in the race, getting the support of the Obama machine.
Never gonna happen.
Obama is still pissed at her for killing bin Laden. She'll be lucky to not be one of the suicides.

I saw your Obama sticker the last time you tried that.

To tell the truth, that commonly happens. And, seeing furry dice and an Obama sticker is the norm.

I love my motorcycles. Thank you for purchasing products made from oil. I could not have done it without your support.

Good. We have at least one Democrat with at least one foot on the ground. You'll probably be able to answer this question:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Malcolm X’s Grandson Malcolm Shabazz Arrested By FBI Traveling To Tehran
Via Digital Journal

The FBI has apparently arrested the grandson of controversial civil rights leader, and former representative of the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X according to reports from Press TV.

Malcolm Lateef Shabazz is 29-years-old and was born in Paris to Malcolm X’s second daughter Qubilah. According to MEHR News Malcolm Shabazz was arrested while traveling to Tehran for the Hollywoodism International Conference. No reason was given for the arrest, and Shabazz’s current location is unknown.

The arrest coincides with Lifetimes airing of “Betty & Coretta” a dramatization of the relationship between Betty Shabazz, Malcolm’s grandmother, and Coretta Scott King the widow of the legendary civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. The film stars Mary J. Blige and Angela Bassett.

February 21st also marks the 48th anniversary of the 1965 assassination of Malcolm X in New York City. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated only three years later, both men were only 39-years-old when they were murdered.

In 1997 12-year-old Malcolm Lateef Shabazz plead guilty to charges of manslaughter and arson in connection to the death of his grandmother Betty Shabazz, with whom he had been living with following several disputes with his mother.

No reason for arrest? Sounds like the FBI might be up to some shady shenanigans. We’ll have more as details emerge. Hold ya head brotha Shabazz

Better watch out people they got their eyes on your retirement accounts!!!$19.5 trillion dollars in private retirement accounts and the federal government is salivating to get their hands on it.All in the guise of protecting the people from greedy market people of course. That $19.5 trillion will let them borrow a whole lot of new money. Beware!!! That's why I don't have any.

OBAMA THE SLAVE LABOR PRESIDENT Prisoners earning 23 cents an hour in U.S. federal prisons are manufacturing high-tech electronic components for Patriot Advanced Capability 3 missiles, launchers for TOW (Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided) anti-tank missiles, and other guided missile systems. A March article by journalist and financial researcher Justin Rohrlich of World in Review is worth a closer look at the full implications of this ominous development.( minyanville.com )

The expanding use of prison industries, which pay slave wages, as a way to increase profits for giant military corporations, is a frontal attack on the rights of all workers.

Prison labor — with no union protection, overtime pay, vacation days, pensions, benefits, health and safety protection, or Social Security withholding — also makes complex components for McDonnell Douglas/Boeing’s F-15 fighter aircraft, the General Dynamics/Lockheed Martin F-16, and Bell/Textron’s Cobra helicopter. Prison labor produces night-vision goggles, body armor, camouflage uniforms, radio and communication devices, and lighting systems and components for 30-mm to 300-mm battleship anti-aircraft guns, along with land mine sweepers and electro-optical equipment for the BAE Systems Bradley Fighting Vehicle’s laser rangefinder. Prisoners recycle toxic electronic equipment and overhaul military vehicles.

Labor in federal prisons is contracted out by UNICOR, previously known as Federal Prison Industries, a quasi-public, for-profit corporation run by the Bureau of Prisons. In 14 prison factories, more than 3,000 prisoners manufacture electronic equipment for land, sea and airborne communication. UNICOR is now the U.S. government’s 39th largest contractor, with 110 factories at 79 federal penitentiaries.

The majority of UNICOR’s products and services are on contract to orders from the Department of Defense. Giant multinational corporations purchase parts assembled at some of the lowest labor rates in the world, then resell the finished weapons components at the highest rates of profit. For example, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon Corporation subcontract components, then assemble and sell advanced weapons systems to the Pentagon.

The prison work is often dangerous, toxic and unprotected. At FCC Victorville, a federal prison located at an old U.S. airbase, prisoners clean, overhaul and reassemble tanks and military vehicles returned from combat and coated in toxic spent ammunition, depleted uranium dust and chemicals.

A federal lawsuit by prisoners, food service workers and family members at FCI Marianna, a minimum security women’s prison in Florida, cited that toxic dust containing lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic poisoned those who worked at UNICOR’s computer and electronic recycling factory.

Prisoners there worked covered in dust, without safety equipment, protective gear, air filtration or masks. The suit explained that the toxic dust caused severe damage to nervous and reproductive systems, lung damage, bone disease, kidney failure, blood clots, cancers, anxiety, headaches, fatigue, memory lapses, skin lesions, and circulatory and respiratory problems. This is one of eight federal prison recycling facilities — employing 1,200 prisoners — run by UNICOR.

After years of complaints the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General and the Federal Occupational Health Service concurred in October 2008 that UNICOR has jeopardized the lives and safety of untold numbers of prisoners and staff.(Prison Legal News, Feb. 17, 2009)

Racism & U.S. prisons

The U.S. imprisons more people per capita than any country in the world. With less than 5 percent of the world population, the U.S. imprisons more than 25 percent of all people imprisoned in the world.

There are more than 2.3 million prisoners in federal, state and local prisons in the U.S. Twice as many people are under probation and parole. Many tens of thousands of other prisoners include undocumented immigrants facing deportation, prisoners awaiting sentencing and youthful offenders in categories considered reform or detention.

The racism that pervades every aspect of life in capitalist society — from jobs, income and housing to education and opportunity — is most brutally reflected by who is caught up in the U.S. prison system.

More than 60 percent of U.S. prisoners are people of color. Seventy percent of those being sentenced under the three strikes law in California — which requires mandatory sentences of 25 years to life after three felony convictions — are people of color. Nationally, 39 percent of African-American men in their 20s are in prison, on probation or on parole. The U.S. imprisons more people than South Africa did under apartheid.(Linn Washington,“Incarceration Nation”)

The U.S. prison population is not only the largest in the world — it is relentlessly growing. The U.S. prison population is more than five times what it was 30 years ago.

In 1980, when Ronald Reagan became president, there were 400,000 prisoners in the U.S. Today the number exceeds 2.3 million. In California the prison population soared from 23,264 in 1980 to 170,000 in 2010. The Pennsylvania prison population climbed from 8,243 to 51,487 in those same years. There are now more African-American men in prison, on probation or on parole than were enslaved in 1850, before the Civil War began, according to Law Professor Michelle Alexander in the book “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.”

Well, I guess there's no harm in telling you carol, but, no, I don't have a BA. I didn''t even graduate from high school. The reason for that at the time was because my high school chose me for an experimental program over at the local community college (personally I think they just wanted to get rid of me.) Anyways, midway though my junior year of high school I started over at the college and a month later I was a full time student and the freshman class president. I'm like you, carol, I hate talking about this stuff but, you did inquire and I guess since I've got your CV you should have mine.

I had a busy schedule as a speaker for staged debates hosted by the League of Women Voters. I guess they picked me because I was the only high school freshman to be elected as head of the Debate team and, with the help of my teammates of course, won the Massachusetts State Debating Championship held at U Mass every year. I had the distinction of achieving the only perfect score in the contest's history but I'm not sure if that record still stands?

When I emerged from community college a year and a half later I had an associate's degree in theatre of all things. The Theater Dept at U Mass would come to my little school to study my lights and sets and the director of my school's program arranged for me to attend Carnegie Mellon's Theater school in the fall. I visited the school and was unimpressed. Plus I had my own design business in Massachusetts at that time and a stunningly beautiful girlfriend, Amy, whom I adored, so I declined the offer.

In the meantime my high school biology teacher - an Harvard alumnus - informed me that he was allowed to recommend one student for a full scholarship every year and he was offering it to me. The reason he was doing so was because he knew I taught animal biology at the Berkshire Museum after school and on Saturdays to other children and had become somewhat of an adolescent celebrity as a result. But I turned him down gracefully as well.

I applied and was accepted at The Cooper Union - a full scholarship only school at that time - as an Art major. What I really liked to do was to paint naked women, alternately, to slather us both with paint. I did one year there and was hired by the Honorable Desmond Guinness to design and remodel a house he'd purchased in Ireland. This house: http://www.castletownhouse.ie/

I was a little out of my depth to be honest, I was after all, 18 years old, but I forged ahead anyway and managed to not entirely embarrass myself, though it was a close thing. My portion of that project took over a year.

During that year I married for some reason and joined two fox hunts : the Kildares and the Naas Harriers. High times all round, eh what? But, in your fashion dear you nailed it, I wasn't in school where I should have been by rights. But then I got this job, it's for sale still I think, but too much for me despite the economy over there. http://medievalnews.blogspot.com/2010/03/cast...
I spent a year designing and building the Health Club facilities and about six months on the Pub in the basement. This was handy for me since my wife and I lived across the street.

I spent another two years there, I won't bore you with the details, but after four years of working in Europe for various Lords, Ladies, Bishops, Generals, and Barons, I considered myself pretty well spoken and quite highly skilled, carol. I may have overestimated my skills somewhat, who knows? In any event by the time you "graduated" from whatever mid-western school that was you mentioned - with honors I'm told... oh, dear, I do run on...
