The Magic Negro wants you to hire Trayvon Martin. If you don't, you will pay dearly.

"The EEOC's Enforcement Guidance, published in 2012, strongly discourages the use of criminal history, especially pertaining to arrest records, when making hiring decisions.

The EEOC's recent $3.1 million settlement with an employer who allegedly screened out three hundred minority job applicants based on their criminal records illustrates the importance the Agency places on screening practices. It should be noted that employers can potentially be held accountable for the background screening practices of its temporary staffing labor provider."

This is partly why American Tech Firms are increasingly hiring from abroad and fighting in Congress to do more. They need a work-around to beat the Racist Oval Office Devil.

Just found this tonight and thought I'd pass it along to those who are interested. The Rockies, the Appalachians and the Central Plains are the framework for creating tornadoes. Cold, dry upper air meets low, warm, moisture-laden air from the Gulf.

SA - Why Twisters Hammer Tornado Alley: http://tinyurl.com/ov73w4r

Why do so many tornadoes occur in the U.S. compared with globally?

The ingredients come together more often here because of the presence of the Gulf of Mexico and the Rockies. Winds out of the south at low levels between the Rockies and Appalachians bring warm, moist air from off the Gulf. Winds out of the west aloft come over the Rockies or high desert. The best way to make an airmass dry and relatively cold is to bring it over a wide, high range of mountains. Thus, when flow is out of the south at low levels and the west aloft, the right thermodynamic profile is created, and the only missing ingredient is something to initiate the storm, such as a front or a dryline. The only place on the planet with a source of moisture equatorward of the region and with a wide, high range of mountains extended a long way from north to south off to the west is the central U.S.

What role, if any, does climate change play in exacerbating the conditions for tornado formation? How is global warming changing, if at all, the map of tornado probabilities?

None that we know. The reporting database, accounting for changes in the way we collect reports, don't show trends. As the planet warms, we expect the warm, moist air to increase and the shear to decrease. It's a function of temperature gradients, which are projected to weaken as the poles warm more than the low latitudes.

As a result, one component (thermodynamics) will become more favorable and another (wind shear to start rotation of storms) will become less favorable. It's not completely clear what the sign of the overall impact on tornadoes will be, but it's likely to be relatively small.

COPIED from another poster:

The Fence Test
You can't get any more accurate than this!
This is straight forward country thinking.
by
Jeff Foxworthy
<image.jpg>

Which side of the fence?
If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
If a Democrat is down-and-out he wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
A Democrat demands that those they don't like be shut down.

If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
If a Democrat decides he needs health care, he demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a Republican reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A Democrat will delete it because he's "offended".

Well, I forwarded it.[ditto - AL]
Which one are you?

While there’s still more information to be gathered and more investigations to be done, all indications are that these decisions – on the AP, on the IRS, on Benghazi – don’t proceed from him. The talk of impeachment is absurd. The queries of “what did the president know and when did he know it” will probably end up finding out “just about nothing, and right around the time everyone else found out.”]

Yes I knew someone was going to bring these riots up but they had nothing to do with the austerity measures that Greece faces, they were a spontaneous response to a police killing.
While the youth unemployment rate is high in Sweden it's nothing compared to Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland all members of the Euro zone.

President Bush and Vice President Cheney met with the entire 10-member bipartisan commission at a meeting in the Oval Office. They answered questions from the commissioners for more than three hours.
A statement from the 9/11 commission described the meeting as "extraordinary" and thanked the two men for their cooperation.
"The commission found the president and the vice president forthcoming and candid," the statement said. "The information they provided will be of great assistance to the commission as it completes its final report."
Now my question to you is why did Sandy Berger smuggle top secret documents out of the archives and destroy them before the 9-11 commission could see them?
Lerner should have been fired. She is a government employee paid by the people. She cannot refuse to answer questions on the part of the people who employ her.
Oh my Gawd the old Sandy Berger story again! Sandy Berger took copies not original documents which are still in the National Archives and still available to the 9/11 Commission.
As to the testimony before the 9/11 Commission Bush and Cheney insisted that they be interviewed together and that no recording be made. Clinton and Gore were also interviewed but separately and their testimony was recorded.
If there is an active criminal investigation going on then the best thing to say is nothing. Lerner was invoking her rights under the Constitution. Your beloved Rick Scott when deposed as to his role as CEO of Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corp as part of a Medicaid fraud investigation invoked his Fifth Amendment rights 75 times.

We're left wondering who exactly is in charge of this government?
The president's top officials knew what was going on with the IRS months ago.
Shulman, IRS Commissioner, met with Obama 118 times. Bush met with IRS officials two or three times in 8 years.
That either means Obama was left completely out of the loop and someone else was in charge or he is feigning innocence.
He can't win either way.
So what was going on with the IRS Carol? I'll tell you. The staff in the Cincinnati office were doing their jobs the best they could considering the flood of 401C applications and the limited resources they had. The IRS is required to determine whether organizations applying for special tax status are "social welfare" groups or are instead engaged in political activity. Political groups cannot get the special tax status these groups were applying for.
Only one-third of the groups that were passed to specialists for a closer look were "conservative." Lots of other organizations were also checked, including progressive organizations.
No conservative organizations were denied their tax exempt status.
Just another phony "scandal" cooked up by the right wing and swallowed whole by gullible fools like you.
I think the Obama administration was wrong to fire or suspend anybody in this case.
