  1. The fallout continued Friday for Papa John's, as business partners and even universities that have accepted large sums from the pizza chain's founder scrambled to distance themselves after John Schnatter admitted using a racial slur during a business call. more at the link I guess the next step we see is college concessions no longer selling Papa John's pizza.
  2. Here's a hypothetical, What if Trump pardoned Kermit Gosnell? This discussion must have him spinning in his prison cell.
  3. Medicare currently doesn't provide free inhalers for people with asthma. Why do people support denying women access to free inhalers. Awesome logic and argument. Checkmate. Then, when someone makes the same argument, just uses different words- it's a terrible argument. And no, I'm not even a hypocrite for making this statement.
  4. I happen to like the healthcare plans that allow birth control for adult woman to be free of charge while children who have asthma to be charged for inhalers. And you should too. Otherwise you don't care about women or children.
  5. Good for them for trying to rehabilitate reputations of Republicans who were a part of the Bush Administration, supporters of the Bush Administration, or an adviser to Sarah Palin. They have become credible people to go to when discussing Trump. Now, I'm sure when Trump is out of office, their use at MSNBC will dry up rather fast and their credibility will return to being no good. Now let my biased self try to be a smidgen fair. MSNBC is trying to make a market of Republican anti- Trumpers as to what Pat Caddell is to Fox News.
  6. Wow, since 1987. Why stop at 87. Could have been earlier. Him and Vince McMahon have known each other for decades. So that explains this:

    anyone interested in a hillary debate?

    According to Madeleine Albright, there's a lot of people right now in a special place of Hell.. Now that I think of it, the meltdowns and breakdowns have been on going for quite a while. So they probably do feel like they are currently in Hell. However, they aren't in a special place of Hell because they are all about equality and being treated the same.
  8. What? People aren't reaching a conclusion to the Applebee's story without the facts as fast as people reached a conclusion with the white guy calling the police on the Black woman story? It's like the white mentally challenged person being tortured by several Black people. And on the tape they proclaim "**** white people." The justice system got it correct, but the media was a little late to the game in proclaiming it or implying it as racial or a hate crime.

    Strzok hearing Democratic lawmaker regrets call for 'Purple Heart' for Strzok
  10. The white woman who appeared to call police on an 8-year-old black girl selling water in San Francisco said Monday that she has received an onslaught of hate mail and death threats since a video of the confrontation went viral, adding that her actions were never racially motivated. Erin Austin, the mother of the 8-year-old girl, Jordan Rodgers, said her daughter was selling bottles of water in front of their home in an attempt to raise money because Austin recently lost her job. Jordan also wanted to get enough to pay for a trip to Disneyland. More at the link
  12. When $50 went missing during the choir class's sixth-grade field trip, Lanier Middle School's police officer informed its assistant principal that sometimes "girls like to hide things in their bras and panties." The assistant principal then ordered the choir's 22 female members—it isn't clear whether there were any boys in the choir—to report to the school nurse for strip searches. Although the nurse "loosened their bras" and "checked around the waistband of their panties," no money was found. The search at the Texas public school was in any case brazenly improper and probably violated the students' rights. That's according to a recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. The girls had filed a federal lawsuit against the school district, which readily agreed that it had violated their rights under the Texas constitution. A federal judge nevertheless dismissed the lawsuit, concluding that the girls had failed to state a constitutional claim. The Fifth Circuit reversed that decision last week Techdirt's Tim Cushing writes that he hopes the school's police officer is now "chronically underemployed":
  13. A woman was spotted climbing the Statue of Liberty in New York City on Wednesday afternoon, prompting evacuation of Liberty Island, shortly after a group protested President Donald Trump’s immigration policy by hanging an “Abolish ICE” sign from the base of the monument. It was not immediately clear whether the statue climber and demonstrators were linked. The woman seen scaling Lady Liberty made it up to her midsection, United States Park Police spokesman Sergeant Dave Somma told NBC 4. Authorities evacuated the island as a precaution. Park police arrested seven people with the group Rise and Resist NYC who hung a banner stating, “Abolish I.C.E.” earlier on Wednesday. The group on its Facebook page said the action was aimed at Trump, and demanded that he "reunite families, halt deportations and end detention as a deterrent." The seven people under arrest will face unlawful protest charges, Somma said. Images from ABC7 Eyewitness News showed the climber lying down on the statue’s base and sometimes moving and waving a t-shirt in the air. The reports of the climber began around 3 p.m., not long after the “Abolish ICE” protest was underway. Rise and Resist denied that the woman was involved in their protest. “The Climber on the Statue of Liberty has no connection to our #abolishice action earlier today,” the group tweeted in the late afternoon. However, authorities have not addressed the climber’s identity or affiliation. The group’s protest follows legislation that Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin introduced last week aimed at abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Pocan had visited the southern U.S. border and pointed out “cruel, inhumane and un-American policies taking place at the border that are now a direct result of actions by Donald Trump.” This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
