White folk simply can't dance. It's just not in their blood, nor in their culture.
Country-line dancing, suits 'em best, Stiff bodies, two left feet, no awareness that knees bend nor that hips sway or move. Every part of the while male body appears to act independently when attempting to dance, jerking rigidly to and fro, without natural flow.
But when it comes to Salsa dancing, there's no hope. Sure, I'm not saying that all whites are incapable of learning footwork, but the vast majority lack the rhythm and soul it takes to become a good Salsa or Samba dancer.

Pelosi's defense of NSA surveillance draws boos

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has disappointed some of her liberal base with her defense of the Obama administration's classified surveillance of U.S. residents' phone and Internet records...

...The boos came when Pelosi said that Snowden had violated the law and that the government needed to strike a balance between security and privacy.

As she was attempting to argue that Obama's approach to citizen surveillance was an improvement over the policies under President George W. Bush, an activist, identified by the Mercury News as Mac Perkel of Gilroy, stood up and tried loudly to question her, prompting security guards to escort him out of the convention hall.

"Leave him alone!" audience members shouted. Others yelled "Secrets and lies!," ''No secret courts!" and "Protect the First Amendment!," according to the Mercury News.

Perkel told the newspaper that he thinks Pelosi does not fully understand what the NSA is up to.

Several others in the audience walked out in support of Perkel...

U.S. Seemingly Unaware of Irony in Accusing Snowden of Spying

Posted by Andy Borowitz

http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/borowit...

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—The United States government charged former intelligence analyst Edward Snowden with spying on Friday, apparently unaware that in doing so it had created a situation dripping with irony.

At a press conference to discuss the accusations, an N.S.A. spokesman surprised observers by announcing the spying charges against Mr. Snowden with a totally straight face.

“These charges send a clear message,” the spokesman said.“In the United States, you can’t spy on people.”

Seemingly not kidding, the spokesman went on to discuss another charge against Mr. Snowden—the theft of government documents:“The American people have the right to assume that their private documents will remain private and won’t be collected by someone in the government for his own purposes.”

“Only by bringing Mr. Snowden to justice can we safeguard the most precious of American rights: privacy,” added the spokesman, apparently serious.(cont.)

It almost sounds like some kind of Monte Python satire.

On a serious note, I think the government overreached on the charges. Espionage doesn't quite seem to fit what happened here and that's what Hong Kong authorities used to allow Snowden to leave.

They said that the charges did not fit the law.

I've been watching the Zimmerman murder trial.

If you ask me the defense is off to a bad start.

The Judge has repeatedly sustained objections from the prosecution that the Defense is out of line.

Right now Zimmerman's attorneys are trying to get Trayvon Martin's parents barred from the courtroom.

At one point the Judge told the defense "Don't you no-no-no me..." and cited Supreme Court rulings that the parents of the victim have a specific right to be in the courtroom.
----------

While I was writing this the Judge has just ruled that Trayvon's parents can be in the courtroom and Zimmerman's parents must remain sequestered until after their testimony.

Court has taken a 10 minute recess.

Snowden did not fly to Havana from Moscow; Kerry says Russia should ‘do the right thing’

By Kathy Lally, Debbi Wilgoren and Juan Forero,

Updated: Monday, June 24, 10:29 AM E-mail the writers

MOSCOW — Fugitive document-leaker Edward Snowden remained in Moscow but out of public view Monday, as the Obama administration blasted Hong Kong and China for refusing to detain him and urged Moscow to expel him to the United States to be tried for revealing government secrets.

White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that U.S. authorities were “in conversations” with their Russian counterparts regarding Snowden, the 30-year-old former government contractor who exposed details of surveillance programs that he believed violated civil liberties.

Snowden has been charged with leaking classified documents. He traveled from Hong Kong to Moscow on Sunday, despite a request by U.S. authorities that Hong Kong detain him.

“We continue to hope that the Russians will do the right thing,” Secretary of State John F. Kerry told NBC News.“We think it’s very important in terms of our relationship. We think it’s very important in terms of rule of law. We have returned seven criminals that they requested for extradition .&#8201;.&#8201;. over the last two years. So we really hope that the right choice will be made here.”

Carney dismissed claims from authorities in Hong Kong that an extradition request from Snowden was incomplete, calling the decision to let Snowden depart Sunday from the semiautonomous Chinese territory “a deliberate choice by the government to release a fugitive despite a valid arrest warrant.”

“That decision unquestionably has a negative impact on the U.S.-China relationship,” Carney said.“The Chinese have emphasized the importance of building mutual trust, and we think that they have dealt that effort a serious setback.”

I'll adjust the look and color of it later. But it's a live chat feed and updates without refreshing the page.

Hope it turns out to be useful.

BTW...the sound has dropped out a couple of times (for a few seconds). Yahoo says their techs are on it, but it seems to be working great.
