George Takei : New York Man Killed In Alleged Anti-Gay Hate Crime Since arriving in NYC three weeks ago, there have been three hate-based attacks against gay men on the streets of the city, the latest resulting in death. This. Must. End. I share this on the hope that our collective outrage will resound and be heard across the city, the nation and the world, and that the perpetrators will be held to account. 1 hour ago - View -
Ron DeMattio : Another example of how fright wingers brains are FUCKED UP. I was reading an item about a Colorado politician being rude to the father of an Aurora shooting victim. That was bad enough, but some ass in the comment section called the dad a 'dick', then said you don't parade a dead victim around to push a political agenda. REALLY?? Isn't that what the Benghazi hearings are all about for the GOP?? 7 hours ago - View -
Horror and Shit : I watched two movies recently, for the first time. The Texas Chainsaw (2013) and Westworld (1973). The Texas Chainsaw 3D is a piece of shit. Sure there are a few things they did right, it wasn't all bad. But making Leatherface somewhat heroic, just fucked it up for me. Westworld on the other hand, I really enjoyed it. It was one of those "How the fuck did I overlook this movie all this time?!?" moments, which are rare for me. Michael Crichton wrote and directed it, and it was a fun ride through a 70's vision of the future. Loved it, but beware, its only going to be enjoyable for people who are fans of that era. - ToeCutter 9 hours ago - View -

Robert W. Vera : Mr. Obama is telling us that he can't possibly know all that is going on in government because its too big!
Really? It's too big? One hand doesn't know what the other hand is doing. Yes, it's too big. You made it bigger, mr. obama, and more impossible to control and then put it in charge of our health care...an economy the size of France's! One sixth of the economy of the USA managed by the buffoons we are starting to see now behind the curtain; baffoons you hired that knew so much about medicine, cancer, infectious disease, obstetrics, heart disease, orthopedic problems, pediatrics...etc and also were experts in the finances of this mega project. Experts my butt...they are just egotistical control freaks seeking to make some mark in their measley little lives. They couldn't manage a McDonalds.
Man up or, as we say in Texas, cowboy up, mr. President! You want the authority, right? Then you also have the responsibility. You act like you know everything and suddenly you know nothing. Just get in front of the camera and take charge and responsibility and lets see what the people think. 1 day ago - View -

We Leave No One Behind : Aurora Shooting Victim Confronts Sen. Bill Cadman (R) If you have a moment to watch this video what you will see is an elected official whom I would consider, the scum of the earth. As the father of a victim of the Aurora Colorado shootings tries to speak to him, State Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman, sits in front of him, at first agitated that someone might actually disagree with him, but when he is finally told by the man speaking that his son was murdered that night by a bullet to the heart, Mr Cadman decides to shut up and listen. But then it looks like he is opening his pad to take notes but it is obvious from looking at his hand that he wasn't writing anything but HE WAS nervously doodling. I don't know how this father sat there without wanting to get up and punch this guy. I couldn't have sat there and put up with that.

The Republican Antagonist : Demand Action - My Son (video)
Anti-gun violence group Mayors Against Illegal Guns released an ad today against Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), featuring the mom of an Aurora shooting victim who says Flake broke his promise to vote for expanded background checks. The ad, titled "My Son," shows Caren Teves discussing the death of her son in the 2012 mass shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo. Alex Teves, then 24, was killed while shielding his fiancée from gunfire.
Teves says in the ad that she and her husband wrote to Flake urging him to support expanded background checks for firearms purchases, and reads a handwritten letter they received from the Arizona Republican in response.
"I am truly sorry for your loss", Flake wrote. "Strengthening background checks is something we agree on."
A month later, Flake voted against the Manchin-Toomey amendment to expand background checks for firearm purchases. His poll numbers took a dive after the vote, but the senator has defended his position.
"The issue isn't just background checks", Caren Teves says in the ad. "It's keeping your promise -- and Senator Flake didn't".
"Will millions of dollars be raised to help cover burial and medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial losses to families affected by “street violence”, as it was after the “terrorism violence” of the marathon bombing? No. Most likely, the victim’s families and communities will hold fundraisers themselves. Will the families affected by “street violence” receive in-depth time and space to heal, like the victim’s families from the “mass shooting” at Sandy Hook Elementary School? No. Most likely, any support will be coordinated by people from within the community, who themselves are traumatized and who often have less resources available to them. Will the value of the victims of “street violence” lives equate the value assigned to the victims in the Aurora movie theater “mass shooting?” No. The general public will perceive the victims of the Mother’s Day shooting and the thousands of other victims of street violence throughout urban America each year as predictable casualties. The easy death of human beings assigned a lesser value by society because they are poor and/or people of color." 1 day ago - View -

Jeff Flake : If you are anywhere close to a television set in Arizona in the coming days, you’ll likely see an ad about gun control financed by NYC Mayor Bloomberg.
Contrary to the ad, I did vote to strengthen background checks. I voted for the bipartisan Grassley Amendment, which included language from a bill I helped write which strengthened background checks for those with mental illness. The Grassley amendment also included language to increase prosecution of criminals and fugitives who circumvent the current background check system.
Mayor Bloomberg can spend millions trying to get me to support his view of background checks. That’s his call. But we Arizonans aren’t easily bullied. The legislation that would have done the most to keep guns out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have them was the Grassley Amendment. And that’s the amendment I supported. 1 day ago - View -

Mike Huckabee : President Obama tried to show some leadership yesterday when he asked for the resignation of the head of the IRS. I say it is too late.
Did you know the IRS also harassed Billy Graham’s organization? How about the pro-Israel group? You see it wasn’t just the Tea Party groups that drew unwarranted attention, it was a host of groups with agendas contrary to the big government loving, Obama can do no wrong crowd that infests Washington these days.
Enough is enough. I don’t want the IRS Chief fired, I want the IRS abolished. I don’t want big government bureaucrats making decisions for me, I want to make decisions for them because we the people are the boss.
We need to clean house next November. And when we elect a Republican Senate Majority and a Republican House we need to hold Obama and his administration accountable for Obamacare, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS and every other bad leadership decision he has made. The buck stops with Obama and it’s time the People remedy all of the wrongs he has done.
If you agree, I hope you will donate $3 or more immediately to Huck PAC. We will help put in place a Republican Senate Majority and keep the House in Republican hands. And we will work with candidates across the country to challenge the Democrats who are blindly standing with Obama.
Delailah Verde : I am the new woman. I am a born fighter. You can bend me sometimes for your selfish motives but you can never break me because I am invincible.

I will not allow anyone to manipulate me or belittle my soul with deceitful conduct. I will not allow anyone to define or change me because I am free spirited and I have my own unique personality. I know how to fight back and survive on my own terms. If I am shattered I come back even stronger because I am determined to be a survivor and not a victim.

Muslims for America : Why isn't New Orleans Mother's Day parade shooting a 'national tragedy'? A YOUNG MAN WRITE ABOUT THE NEW ORLEANS SHOOTING.
Frankly, I was thinking the same, why are we not hearing much about the shooting on Mothers Day. Then I saw this article. Please read, a short article. Here is an excerpt.
"Think about that for a minute. From Columbine to Virginia Tech to Fort Hill to Aurora, all the shooters were either killed or apprehended on site. But the person or people responsible for shooting 19 Americans are still free.
So why am I allowed to go outside? Where's the city quarantine or FBI and Homeland Security presence for this act of "terrorism"?
Because this is an act of domestic terrorism right? Just because the alleged shooter was wearing a white tee and jeans does that suddenly make the shooting a gang-related affair? And we all know how irrelevant gang-related shootings are in America. The Mother's Day shooting is so irrelevant that politicians haven't even bothered to mention it to further their anti-gun agendas. If the shootings aren't even important enough for politicians to spin, then it's truly reached a black hole of irrelevance.
Did I mention the shooter is still on the loose? I have? Just checking. Police have released photos and video of one of the suspects, but he is still at large." 2 days ago - View -
