The Right Wing's Unhinged Reaction to the Idea that Janay Rice Is a Victim
Now that Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been cut by his team and suspended indefinitely by the NFL for punching his then fiancee, Janay Palmer, in an elevator, the right wing media has done what we have come to expect from them, and blamed the victim . If Ray Rice had punched another man in the elevator, he would be just as guilty. The tendency to defend the man in such cases seems to be reflexive on the right, a knee-jerk reaction not only to loss of male privilege but to uppity women thinking they are equal to men, that men should not be able to discipline their wives as they might a pet.

You whiners had a fit about Obama not going to Congress then but now think Obama should act without Congress.
Make up your feeble mind there Roxlo.
rational people think that Obama should propose a plan and negotiate bipartisan approval of Congress.....

Have you had a drink or 2 or 3? There was nothing in the post that you referred to that was positive towards Rice and the turd Vick was never mentioned. Rice should be charged with assault. The NFL was slow but they were right to ban him. Hopefully forever. The Ravens were right to release him. Both the NFL and the Ravens were slow to act.

Several gay groups representing immigrants are planning a massive non-violent civil disobedience protest either in Washington or at border detention centers in a ramped-up bid to force President Obama to immediately stop deportations and grant amnesty to illegals.
The plan is for “having a mass, very big civil disobedience action taking place,” said Luis Aguilera Garcia of GetEQUAL. He said it would happen “either in Washington or at detention centers,” but a date hasn’t been set.
“It is going to escalate,” he told Secrets after several immigration protesters from the LGBT community and representatives from the AFL-CIO and National Education Association held a press conference in front of the White House to demand that Obama not delay his amnesty plan until after the election, as planned.
“We can’t let the momentum go back because when that happens people lose hope,” said Garcia.“I cannot trust Obama anymore. He needs to keep his promises,” he added.
Speakers at the press conference estimated that deportations will reach 70,000 by Election Day if the president doesn’t reverse course and announce his plan. Among them, they said, will be several gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders and “queers,” sent back to countries that either frown on LGBT sex or have laws against it.
Many of the speakers, outfitted in red T-shirts with the phrase “Immigration is an LGBTQ issue” printed on them, said being sent home amounts to a “death sentence.”

Why not? I'm on a pension and I have received a 2% raise every year since retiring.
The mimimum wage was increased every year from 1967 to 1976 and again from 1978 to 1991. Never in the history of the minimum wage was there a gap like that between 1997 and 2007. Certainly that ten year gap was a big contributor to wage inequality.
incorrect.....check your data......

you are very fortunate.....

most pensions do not have a cost-of-living increase......even government pensions......

Progress

(Reuters)- A small group of people pick through putrefying human remains laid out on plastic sheets by the side of a road in northern Iraq, searching for any trace of missing friends and relatives.

Some had brought spades to help dig up the mass grave near Suleiman Beg after the town was retaken from Sunni Islamic State militants who held the area until last week.

"They (Islamic State) slaughtered him simply because he was Shi'ite," said Jomaa Jabratollah, hauling the remnants of his friend, a truck driver, into a coffin, having identified him from the lighter in his breast pocket. "We must take revenge".

Helped by the United States and Iran, Kurdish forces and Shi’ite militia are finally beating back Islamic State militants who overran most Sunni Arab areas in northern and central Iraq nearly three months ago.

But the aftermath illustrates the unintended consequences of the U.S. air campaign against Islamic State.

Kurdish and Shi'ite fighters have regained ground, but Sunni Muslims who fled the violence are being prevented from returning home and some have had their houses pillaged and torched.

Rather than help keep the nation together, the air strikes risk being used by different factions for their own advantage in Iraq's sectarian and ethnic conflicts.

Galt, cover your eyes.

On a personal note, just have to say happy and excited daughter got her first good paying job today - not rolling in the dough but a respectable salaried position. She is now a fully independent single woman on her own - and can pay back her student loans.

It's a proud moment...a little bittersweet because she no longer needs us and our job is done. But glad we can save a little more now too.

Just a very happy and grateful parent tonight.

Someone tell Galt he can uncover his eyes now.
