Elbert Guillory: Mary Landrieu is Not Helping Blacks

The war on the poor

So utility costs are going up in Massachusetts.

Many Massachusetts households are going to see their electric bills shoot up 37 percent this winter, a rate increase that some advocates fear will put additional strain on low-income families. 
State regulators approved the increase for National Grid household customers that would mean an average of $33 per month more for the typical residential customer and would push a typical monthly bill higher than $150. 
Large-business customers will see even higher increases.National Grid has almost 1.3 million residential and business electric customers in Massachusetts. The new rates take effect in November. 
"This is pretty bad, and it's going to really have a bearing on a lot of Massachusetts households' abilities to just make ends meet this winter," John Howat, senior energy analyst at the National Consumer Law Center in Boston, told The Boston Globe. 
The utility blame the rate hikes on the cost of buying electricity from power plants, which has soared because of an increased demand for natural gas used to generate electricity.
Why is there an increase in natural gas prices?

Because the political correctness known as global warming means that we can't use coal to generate electricity.

Let me ask a question

Who gets hurt more from increased utility costs in Massachusetts?

1) Single Moms
2) John Kerry
3) Ben Affleck
4) David Ortiz
5) Tom Brady

The war on the press

It seems like it just rolls off the tongue like water.

Conservatives will do anything to stifle a free press in this country.

But is that really the case?

Let's face it. Whenever the communists take over a government, the first thing they do is start shooting members of the media.

But take a left wing government here in this country. There are no be headings but there's sure a hell of lot of press suppression. 

Don't take my word for it. Take a reporters.............

The war on children

Between getting ready for vacation, doing vacation, and catching up from vacation, I'm not able to devote some blogging time.

While I was out of town, I read this piece printed, in all places, the Minneapolis Star Tribune regarding the plan reduction in suspensions in Minneapolis Schools.


Creating stable middle class neighborhoods should be the top priority of our political and civic leaders — a goal requiring quality public schools, reasonable taxes and low crime rates. The simple fact is that Minneapolis and St. Paul will not be healthy without a large and growing middle class. 
But the reality is that people often leave depressed inner city communities quietly without much fanfare. Who can blame them given the quality of the schools and the level of crime and violence that exist in parts of our city? Along with most people reading this article, I would never expose children to the risks that exist in many parts of our city. 
What’s ironic is that public schoolteachers and elected officials know this. These public servants often talk of their support for public schools while disproportionately sending their children to private schools. 
Some studies show that public schoolteachers are twice as likely as the general public to send their kids to private schools. Other studies have shown that over 30 percent of the members of Congress send their school age children to private schools, while less than 10 percent of the general public use private schools. 
The recent effort by the Minneapolis school board to reduce suspensions in early grades and equalize suspensions across racial lines will have one certain effect — more chaos in the classroom. The school system will, of course, deny that the new policy will be harmful, presenting it as necessary to close the achievement gap and a learning opportunity for students of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.


So let me ask a question, is it the big, racist, conservatives subjecting good students to packs of derelicts or liberals?

I keep saying on this blog that I'm not a conservative for me. I've got my education so what do I give a shit if a bunch of kids in Minneapolis can't read because the school district would rather protect miscreants rather than educating the diligent. In fact, it's to my economic advantage to keep these kids ignorant.

But right is right. and you won't find a conservative worth their wears who would approve of this policy.

It's the liberals, waging the war on children.

Quote of the day



"What's so cynical about today's immigration announcement is that the president isn't saying he'll follow the law, he's just saying he'll go around the law once it's too late for Americans to hold his party accountable in the November elections."

Mitch McConnell

Welcome to America

Please make sure you pass your TB and Enterovirus on our citizens..........

More than 30 Lynn Community Health Center employees and 800 patients are being tested to determine if they were exposed to tuberculosis after center doctors confirmed a case.

Center Director Lori Berry says after confirming the single positive test for tuberculosis in a male health care worker around Labor Day, center medical workers contacted and tested employees as well as patients ‘‘having sufficient exposure to warrant testing.’’

City Health Director MaryAnn O'Connor tells The Daily Item the identified case at the center is ‘‘not a reason to panic’’ and said people should not stay away from clinic

The Center for Disease Control’s website describes tuberculosis as bacteria ‘‘that usually attack the lungs’’ but can attack other parts of the body, and if not treated properly can be fatal.

This article doesn't suggest that the TB originated from an illegal immigrant but would you like to make a wager on it?

But let's not forget our friend enterovirus...........

Maybe liberals haven’t noticed yet, but it hasn’t taken all that long for the infective consequences of President Obama’s refusal to put Americans first to befall the most innocent among us. For starters, Ohio, California, and Kansas are just a few of the states already struggling to contain measles outbreaks.

Now, in addition to measles, more than 1,000 children in 10 states -- Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Georgia -- have suddenly become infected with a rare respiratory virus, not seen in the U.S. since the 1960s, called human Enterovirus EV-D68. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention claim that the rare strain is related to the same rhinovirus responsible for causing the common cold. 

The dire prediction is that in the coming weeks and months, Enterovirus EV-D68, origin unknown, is due to spread to all 50 states and afflict great numbers of otherwise healthy children.

This guy is a sociopath



President Barack Obama told NBC News on Sunday that he regrets the "optics" of going golfing just minutes after making a speech about the beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS terrorists.

"I've got to ask. During that vacation, you made the statement on Foley. You went and golfed. Do you want that back?" asked NBC News' Chuck Todd. 

"You know, it is always a challenge when you're supposed to be on vacation because you're followed everywhere," said Obama. "There's always going to be some tough news somewhere....I should have anticipated the optics."

Obama said he held back tears after speaking with the parents of the beheaded.

Obama added, "Part of this job is the theater of it."

So when he held back the tears, was that part of the theater?

I've got an idea. How about being moved so much in someone's grief, that teeing off isn't one of your first intstincts.

It's called empathy.

Blaming the victim


So if being drunk may make you more susceptible to being raped, wouldn't you educate coeds as such?

Not in today's politically correct society..........

“I don’t think you are doing young women any favors by saying, We’re not going to tell you that this happens – and be careful about it.” The reason given for the censorship, she says, were “focusing on how much students drink . . . leads to blaming victims.”

That's hilarious.

At the University of Cincinnati's own website, they have safety tips to help protect yourself against crime on and near campus.

Here's the list of suggestions
  • Lock your doors and windows
  • Be alert and aware of your surroundings
  • Don't leave cell phones and computers unattended in plain sight
  • Travel in pairs or groups - don't walk alone
  • Avoid dark streets and hallways
  • Don't reveal personal information to strangers or new acquaintances
  • Don't leave door/house keys under the doormat and don't leave notes on the door
  • Don't get on an elevator with someone that makes you feel uncomfortable
How is adding a line item saying, don't get plastered in bars somehow"blaming the victim"?

Surely, coeds should be able to get bombed like anyone else. But every student should know that being impaired means being impaired. You are not nearly as likely to fight off an attack when you're bombed.......male or female.

So we're going to play pretend not give students the truth.

Who's the journalist and who's the hack?

So James O'Keefe is not considered a journalist for some of his stunts like crossing the border in an Osama bin Laden mask to illustrate the porous border situation we have.

But, of course, if Jim Avila, from ABC news does it, it is somehow legtimate.........

It's not that difficult to cross into Mexico's southern border from Guatemala, claims ABC News reporter Jim Avila: For $5, he was able to board a raft and make a short trip across a river, along with three other people.
"We found in Guatemala just last month makeshift rafts, filled with immigrants crossing illegally into Mexico heading to the U.S.," Avila said during a segment on ABC's "This Week" Sunday. "I boarded one with no papers, no IDs checked. Cost me $5 to bring three people over here from Guatemala to Mexico."

As nearly 75 percent of the nearly 63,000 illegal, unaccompanied migrant juveniles that have come across the United States' southern border have been from Central America, there has been concern that many are traveling through Guatemala on their way north. Others pass through Belize into Mexico, and then into the United States, ABC reports.
 
 
What's the difference?
