I didn't know I was black #2

My bride and I go out about three times a year to a fancy restaurant for a nice night out.

When we do we'll usually use the valet service.

I bet it's happened a half dozen times when I've pulled up and I've seen someone waiting out front and I've asked the person if they are the valet because the valets are out getting their cars and it's happened to me a couple of times.

But apparently that happens because you are a racist.


I never knew I was black

When old people have asked me to get something off the shelf for them, I always assumed that it was because I was taller than they are and could reach the product.

But, according to Michelle Obama, it's because I'm black.

“I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her.

Hell if I would have known that I could have gotten into Harvard.

Caroline Glick tells off Danish ambassador

Why I carry

I have a concealed carry permit and I use it.


Why?

Because I don't want to be inside of a coffee shop when a pack of armed derelicts decide to take it over.....

An Iranian-born gunman and one of his hostages were reportedly shot dead in a dramatic and chaotic firefight that ended the Sydney cafe siege after a tense 17-hour stand-off.

A swarm of heavily armed police stormed the Lindt Chocolat cafe in a hail of gunfire and stun grenades in the early hours of the morning.
There were that at least three others were injured, but this could not immediately be confirmed.

Live television coverage showed at least two people being taken away from the scene on stretchers. One hostage was seen being carried out of the building. She appeared to be in pain, and blood flowed down her legs.

Nine News reported that eleven hostages had been accounted for after the police raid, which occurred shortly after 2am.

Life in "Progress" States - The Northeast corridor edition




For October, [John York] had paid $376. For November, with virtually no change in his volume of work and without having turned up the thermostat in his two-room shop, his bill came to $788, a staggering increase of 110 percent. “This is insane,” he said, shaking his head. “We can’t go on like this.”
For months, utility companies across New England have been warning customers to expect sharp price increases, for which the companies blame the continuing shortage of pipeline capacity to bring natural gas to the region.
Now that the higher bills are starting to arrive, many stunned customers are finding the sticker shock much worse than they imagined. Mr. York said he would have to reduce his hours, avoid hiring any new employees, cut other expenses and ultimately pass the cost on to his customers. . .
For the coming winter, National Grid, the largest utility in Massachusetts, expects prices to rise to 24.24 cents, a record high. The average customer will pay $121.20 a month, a 37 percent increase from $88.25 last winter.

Who do you think is responsible for this? Those four crazy republicans in the northeast.

More..........

And liberals are supposed to be the smart ones?

Last week this headline got my attention

How Working a Full-Time Job at Whole Foods Left Me Broke

 

Let me give you the cliff notes version to save you the palm in face reaction to reading this.

Nick takes a job at Whole Foods, he doesn't like his work schedule and pay.

He quits.

For most people, that insight would have resulted in them quitting in about two weeks. It took Nick years.

Let me get the clue phone ringing for Nick. When the owners of Whole Foods started the company, the mission statement didn't begin with "We need to hire Nick and pay him what he wants and give him the schedule that works for him".

I'm guessing that he's figured it out, but I still have my doubts.

Who did he vote for? #110

Meet professor Edelman.

Why is he in the news?


If you think bullies are teenagers lurking on schoolyard playgrounds, think again.  At least one is a grown-up walking the hallowed halls of Harvard University.

His name is Ben Edelman.  He not only teaches there, but he earned several diplomas including a law degree at that storied institution of higher education.  But Edelman seems to have adopted the word “higher” as his personal calling card.  You see, he’s higher than you and me. Or at least he seems anxious to let you know it.    

A hardworking Chinese immigrant family found that out when the professor ordered a takeout meal of shredded chicken with spicy garlic sauce and three other dishes.   

Edelman thought he was overcharged by $ 4 bucks ($ 1 dollar more for each dish), so he launched a relentless war on Ran Duan, who works with his parents at their restaurant, Sichuan Garden in Brookline.  You can read the sordid details in a story at Boston.com where the website also published the unbelievable litany of Edelman’s intimidating and condescending emails to Duan.  The prof’s remarks ooze with arrogance and conceit.  

 Edelman’s exchange with Duan has become a viral sensation, as it should.  A Harvard professor vowing legal action over the sum of $ 4 dollars.  Come on.  

The professor has now apologized for his treatment of Duan and his family, but his emails will leave you shaking your head in disbelief that someone so supposedly “learned” could be so seemingly insufferable.  Maybe that’s what a Harvard education gets you these days –a degree in imperiousness. 

So in the last election did this douche post his chad for Romney or Obama?

Maybe they were born that way

Mika seems a little judgmental about an alternative lifestyle.

It ain't torture if you can watch it.

So Dianne Feinstein is coming out with her "torture"report.


Apparently the prevailing sentiment is that waterboarding is is torture.

Bullshit!!!!!


How do you know waterboarding is not torture? Because you can watch a hundred videos of it being done on Youtube. drunk college kids doing it to each other. Radio personalities having it done to them. etc.

Do you think Youtube would allow videos of people having bamboo shoots shot under someone's nails? Do you think ole mancow would be lining up for a little electro shock therapy? Could you watch a video of a man being hung from his feet and beaten?


If the worst thing done to these terrorists was that they felt like they were drowning for a minute, I'm good with that.

And you should be too or else you should be demanding that youtube take off those x rated "torture" videos.

Kentucky cops raid teenagers' field party, kill girl who tried to escape

Since we're all about cop shootings. Here is a video of a cop who shot and killed a drunk, white, teenage girl who didn't obey his command to stop.

As the story goes, the cop ended on the hood of the car and shot through the windshield with three other passengers in the car.

Like all the other shootings in the news, the grand jury failed to indict. I know this isn't a legal analysis but if I was on a grand jury, I would never indict a cop for actions against a citizen if said citizen failed to comply with reasonable instructions.

The bottom line is that Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Samantha Ramsey would all be alive today had they simply followed the cops instructions........ none of which were unreasonable

New video of Jonathan Gruber saying no state exchange means no Obamacare...

Just like us

We have a presidential candidate who hasn't driven a car since 1996.

I know you're already thinking it's probably Mitt Romney or Jeb Bush.

You would be wrong I wonder how often she's scanned her own groceries?

Why you should register as a democrat (reason #6,102 - #6,104)

Reason #6,102..... If you are a registered democrat, the media won't report on your crimes.

A former Democratic congressional aide has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing two women who were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The Washington Post reports that 37-year-old Donny Ray Williams pleaded guilty Tuesday in D.C. Superior Court. Williams had served as a staff director for the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee.
Both of the assaults occurred in 2010. Prosecutors say Williams invited a colleague to his apartment, where he spiked her drink with a sleep aid and raped the woman while she was asleep.
A month later, prosecutors say Williams gave a woman alcoholic beverages and had sexual contact with her when she was too drunk to consent.

Contrast that to a republican aide who made a Facebook post about the Obama kids.

who got more prime time news coverage?

Reason #6,103 ..........  the war on women doesn't apply to you. From the same article

Prosecutors plan to seek a suspended prison term and five years of supervised probation.

A suspended term for RAPE! is this a great country or not.

Reason #6,104..... When's the last time you read or heard Jon Cozine's name in the news? Compare his crime for the crime Dinesh D'Souza committed.

Hell, for that matter compare that to Terry Bean

a man who hits a female police officer


If this officer had pulled out her gun and shot this guy, would it have been "justifiable" for those who idolize Mike Brown?

Chaffetz to Johnson: "Did the President change the law?"

Now they tell us

First Chuck Schumer and now Tom Harkin............


Sen. Tom Harkin, one of the coauthors of the Affordable Care Act, now thinks Democrats may have been better off not passing it at all and holding out for a better bill.

The Iowa Democrat who chairs the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, laments the complexity of legislation the Senate passed five years ago.

 He wonders in hindsight whether the law was made overly complicated to satisfy the political concerns of a few Democratic centrists who have since left Congress. 

“We had the power to do it in a way that would have simplified healthcare, made it more efficient and made it less costly and we didn’t do it,” Harkin told The Hill. “So I look back and say we should have either done it the correct way or not done anything at all.

“What we did is we muddle through and we got a system that is complex, convoluted, needs probably some corrections and still rewards the insurance companies extensively,” he added.


What the hell is going on with these health care mea culpas?
