A Republican candidate for South Dakota’s open Senate seat on Monday likened people who receive food assistance to animals, implying that both become dependent on handouts.
Dr. Annette Bosworth, a first-time candidate who styles herself after Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Steve King, shared an image on her campaign’s Facebook page insisting that the message of a “please do not feed the animals” sign in parks should be applied to food stamp recipients.
24) Robert Copeland

WOLFEBORO, N.H.— A police commissioner in a predominantly white New Hampshire town says he won’t apologize for calling President Barack Obama the N-word, and he sat with his arms crossed while angry residents at a meeting called for his resignation on Thursday.

Wolfeboro Police Commissioner Robert Copeland, who’s 82 and white, has acknowledged in an email to his fellow police commissioners he used the racial slur in describing Obama.

Town resident Jane O’Toole, who moved to Wolfeboro four months ago, said she overheard Copeland say the slur at a restaurant in March and wrote to the town manager about it. Copeland, in an email to her, acknowledged using the slur in referring to the president and said he will not apologize.

“I believe I did use the ‘N’ word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse,” Copeland said in the email to his fellow police commissioners, part of which he forwarded to O’Toole.“For this, I do not apologize — he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.”

That police chief is an American hero. He should become NYPD commissioner instead of that queer guy now.

That's because they got all of the 2nd Amendment gun nuts into believing they're on their side when in reality, they're on the side of the gun manufacturers.
Of course they have nothing to say, anything that comes from the mouth of their silly leader will be more irrelevant rhetoric with no meaning to it.
For him, it's better to be thought of as fool than to open his mouth and remove all doubt.

26)West Village newspaper

A West Village newspaper is under fire for calling President Obama the 'N-word' in a headline.

The WestView News ran an op-ed column entitled "The N***** in the White House" in its latest July edition.

Despite James Lincoln Collier's article being pro-Obama and slamming what it says is the "racism" of far-right voters, it's unsurprisingly sparked outrage among readers.

"How do you refer to Jews, Mexicans, Muslims and Asians? Just curious," asked Tweeter @DonnaBee511.

"I can see his point but the fact that is a headline in this paper that represents the West Village is disgusting," poet Florence Kindred told Pix11.

"Over the top?" added fellow Twitter user Steve Bien-Aime.

27)Nebraska

A Fourth of July parade in Nebraska featured an Obama float that many local residents and politicians are saying was racist and disrespectful to the president.

A float included in the Norfolk, Nebraska, annual event featured a dummy wearing overalls and standing next to a walker outside of an outhouse labeled “Obama Presidential Library.” The float was attached to a trailer that was towed behind a blue pickup truck, reports the Omaha World Herald, and its sponsor has yet to come forward.

Many residents found the float disturbing, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.

“I’m angry and I’m scared,” Glory Kathurima, who immigrated to Norfolk from Kenya, said.“This float was not just political; this was absolutely a racial statement.”

Kathurima said her 9-year-old daughter, who accompanied her to the parade, could not understand why people in the crowd laughed as the float went by, and that she did not know how to explain it to her.

Officials from the Nebraska Democratic Party echoed the woman’s concerns.“We have seen many times when Nebraskans disapproved of the President, but this clearly crosses the line,” Nebraska Democratic Party executive director Dan Marvin said in a statement.“There is a level of respect for the office of the Presidency which should not be crossed. It’s beyond disappointing the City of Norfolk, its officials, and citizens would allow such a thing.”

Can you feel the love

Microsoft is cutting up to 18,000 jobs in the next year, CEO Satya Nadella said Thursday in a letter to employees. The cuts represent more than 14 percent of Microsoft's 127,000-person workforce.

Wall Street welcomes Microsoft layoffs
"That's clearly much higher than we were expecting. We, like most people, were thinking like 5,000 to 6,000," Kirk Materne, technology analyst at Evercore Partners, told CNBC right after the announcement.

As a result of the dismissals, Microsoft said, it will incur pretax charges of up to $1.6 billion for severance and related costs over the next four quarters.

"We are moving now to start reducing the first 13,000 positions, and the vast majority of employees whose jobs will be eliminated will be notified over the next six months," Nadella wrote. "It's important to note that while we are eliminating roles in some areas, we are adding roles in certain other strategic areas."

Nadella explained the cuts, saying they "simplify the way we work to drive greater accountability, become more agile and move faster." Microsoft will also have fewer layers of management, he said.

About 12,500 of the cuts will result from the company's "synergies and strategic alignment" with Nokia Devices and Services, Nadella said. Microsoft announced that it would acquired Nokia in September 2013.

30) Detroit Water and Sewerage Department

Most of us take it for granted that if we turn on the faucet, water is just going to come out. For at least 17,000 residents of Detroit, Mich., that isn’t the case, and hasn’t been so for quite some time, as the city chose to turn off their water in retaliation for unpaid water bills. The city’s decision has drawn a debate over whether or not access to clean water is a human right and if what the city is forcing on its residents is a humanitarian crisis.

It takes as little as a $150 unpaid bill to be eligible for having your water turned off in the city, despite the fact that those who find $150 simply too far out of reach to pay are the ones who are most likely to need the service. It’s for exactly that reason that even the United Nations is condemning the city for its actions against the poorest of its residents.“Disconnection of water services because of failure to pay due to lack of means constitutes a violation of the human right to water and other international human rights,” the U.N. officials said in a news release, according to Al Jazeera.“Because of a high poverty rate and a high unemployment rate, relatively expensive water bills in Detroit are unaffordable for a significant portion of the population.”

The U.N. cites the health concerns that come from lack of water, stating that lack of bathing, toilet flushing and hand washing can lead to sickness and cause simple illnesses to spread. Even beyond the health aspect, by turning off the water the city dooms those in poverty to cycle even further into it, making it impossible to ever earn the money they would need to pay off debt. It leaves them with no ability to wash clothes for work or to cook at home, forces them to need to purchase water and other beverages and otherwise increase household expenses.

Even more dire are the reports that the city is removing children from homes without water, separating families against their will.

While residents are feeling the brunt of this new policy, losing water over a few hundred dollars of outstanding debt or even having liens put on their homes and other property, businesses, who owe a far greater portion of the missing fees, are getting off with no punishment. Golf courses, local sports teams and other large for profit businesses are said to owe tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars each to the city for their own unpaid water bills. Those businesses, of course, have seen no shut offs at all.

This obviously unbalanced enforcement over unpaid bills combined with the fact that a number of those who are delinquent believe that their charges haven’t been accurate at all has led to massive backlash, culminating in a 5,000 member march through Detroit where activists in town for a progressive conference joined with locals to demand that the water be turned back on.“Chanting,‘Fight! Fight! Fight! Water is a human right!’ and ‘Whose water? Our water!’ about 5,000 Detroit residents and allies from across the country—including many who were in town for the annual Netroots Nation blogger conference—marched from the Cobo convention center to Hart Plaza near the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department,” reports Ruth Conniff from The Progressive. Also on the scene was actor Mark Ruffalo, who told the gathered marchers,“What’s happening in Detroit is a model for what’s happening in the nation. Instead of a nation for the 0.1 percent, it should be a nation for all humanity.”
