Rudy Giuliani’s daughter arrested for shoplifting and is labelled ‘rebellious;’

Winona Ryder caught on camera shoplifting and found not-guilty.

Mike Brown ‘allegedly’ steals $.50 swisher and is executed for ‘robbery.’ 

Important.

Understand

This post doesn’t even make sense. Mike Brown wasn’t executed for “robbery”. He was executed for nothing. The police chief in Ferguson has admitted that at the time he was killed the officer was not stopping him in connection with his alleged “robbery”. Don’t tell me even people who want justice for Mike Brown’s killer have bought the bullshit line about his murder being related to a “robbery”. Please don’t tell me that.

But even if his alleged “robbery” had anything to do with his death, this post would still be a train wreck. What is the implication of it? That rich and powerful people can more easily get away with crimes? Is this news? Are you all that naive?

And don’t say “they’re white and he’s black.” (I’ve seen this post on here before pointing that out as the difference) Because if you seriously think the only different between the daughter of the governor of new york state, an (at the time) wealthy and famous movie star, and Michael Brown is race than I don’t think you’re looking hard enough. There’s literally too many differences to count. Wealth. Status. Connections. Power. Celebrity. The location of the incident, the jurisdiction into which the “crime” was prosecuted (hint: the people involved were separated by many many miles and years) These are only some of the obvious differences besides sex and race which are at play here.

The american criminal justice system is absolutely horrible, unjust, and rotten to the core. But this post is a train wreck in the classic tumblr model of a picture with a caption that serves no purpose but to cue rehearsed indignation and phony outrage based on a few short bullet points with no further explanation.

And damnit , mike brown wasn’t murdered.

Mike brown wasn’t executed at all. He was shot after beating a police officer to the point of breaking his orbital bone and charging towards him again after being told to stop. The robbery actually has little impact on the shooting.

Stop with the false narratives and getting played for idiots by race baiters who want nothing but power and money off of your ignorance.

More Irony: 70,000 people in Gaza without power after Hamas rocket takes out their own power lines

Yesterday, Hamas took out one of the UN’s warehouses that stores aid materials to Gaza.  Today, one of their rockets took out the power lines.  

from Arutz Sheva:

Seventy thousand Gazans from Khan Younis and Deir el-Balah were in the dark Sunday night after a Hamas rocket hit the power line that supplies electricity to those places. It’s not clear when Israel Electric Company workers will be able to repair the system, but they are apparently in no rush to do so. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has asked the IEC not to risk the lives of its employees in trying to restore power to the affected sector in Gaza, an operation that could take hours.

As Operation Protective Edge enters its seventh day, many Israelis are demanding that the country take more aggressive action against Hamas in order to put a halt to the seemingly endless missile attacks from Gaza. One suggestion that has come up numerous times – including from MKs and Ministers like Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon – is cutting off electricity to Gaza,which Israel is still supplying. The Hamas missile, which hit one of the high tension wires that move power from Israel to Gaza, apparently made that a moot point, at least partially.

read the rest

The irony here is that Israel could have taken out the power to Gaza at any time, and were they the great oppressors the media wants you to think they are, they would have.  But they didn’t.  Hamas’s own rockets, designed to indiscriminately kill as many Jews as possible did that.

At least two Arizona school board members are outraged that student messages in their district’s high school yearbook were censored after the bound volumes — costing $75 a pop — came back from the printer.
And how was that task accomplished? According to Mark Stegeman, governing board member for the Tuscon Unified School District, yellow and black stickers were pasted over each comment in each yearbook — “a major enterprise,” Stegeman told TheBlaze on Wednesday, involving Sambino High School yearbook staff members and even school staff members.
The Arizona Independent reported that 10 messages captioned with student’s photos — mostly seniors — were covered because they were either racist or inappropriate. Stegeman told TheBlaze stickers were used.
Apparently due to the time it took to cover the comments in each yearbook, students didn’t get a chance to pass them around for friends’ signatures. A school alumni Facebook page indicates students received the yearbooks on the last day of school, which was May 22 — also high school graduation day. While Stegmeman didn’t know exactly how many yearbooks were censored, he told TheBlaze that about 1,000 students attend the school.
Stegeman said he was “mystified” over the decision to cover students’ comments, most of which to him seemed “reasonable” to leave untouched, apart from the fact that the issue should have been resolved before the yearbook went to print. He said it was “rude” of the school to “block out into oblivion” what were students’ last words to each other.
Reportedly among the offending covered comments was one from a Latina student: “Every Mexican needs a white best friend.” Another apparently censored student comment reads, “Come getcha some — Turtleman.” Another student message reportedly stated she was “drunk on you and high on summer time” and also was reportedly covered. That last quote includes lyrics to a popular country song by Luke Bryan.
“We got a lot of complaints,” Stegeman told TheBlaze regarding the sticker shock.
“It is inappropriate,” Michael Hicks, another board member, told the Independent. “We don’t know what the school administration was thinking but this does not seem fair to the seniors of Sabino High School. We fought hard to stop teachers from imposing their world view in our other schools’ classrooms. It should be wrong for all of our professionals. They paid $75 for a book and they put tape all over it.
“Nothing I have read warrants what they have done. I think the District should apologize or give the kids their money back. The principal should have reviewed this before it went to the printer. If it offends his sensibilities for whatever reason, those reasons should be articulated to the students, and adults should have talked to them about their objections beforehand.”
TheBlaze on Wednesday asked for a comment from faculty member Thomas Knutson — who, according to the high school website, teaches English and appears connected to the yearbook in some capacity — but the email wasn’t immediately returned.
Stegeman told TheBlaze he’s “fairly confident” based on his understanding of what happened that the principal made the call to cover the photo captions. Phone calls to principal Matt Munger and district Superintendent H.T. Sanchez on Wednesday were not immediately returned.
On the school’s alumni Facebook page, Katie Chester Lasota said she was the yearbook editor in 2000 and that the administration “doesn’t look at anything until its in print. We got in trouble for articles about teenage pregnancy and such, but we had an amazing adviser who fought for us on keeping them in. The YB adviser should have caught those before it went to print. How embarrassing for every one.”

In a show of solidarity with LGBT Israelis, the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv is flying a rainbow flag to mark gay pride week.
“For the first time in history, the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv has raised the Pride flag together with our American flag,” U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro posted on Facebook Tuesday. “We are proud to join with the municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo and its residents in celebrating LGBT Pride Week.”

Will we raise the pride flag at our embassies in countries like Jordan and Brunei where they stone gays? I think not. Hypocrites.

I love how conservatives try to say certain people are biologically inferior, when the reality is that conservatism correlates to biological inferiority. & that’s based on actual evidence.

OOHHH look! A lefty is using big words! Sooooo impressed.

*Citation Needed*

How do you know when a liberal is lying (besides when their lips are moving, I mean)?  When they feel the need to use unnecessarily large words in order to make their idiotic arguments appear more intelligent when commonly used words would have worked just as well and been twice as effective.

Oh!  And when they claim their stupidity is “fact based” but fail to provide any sources for those supposed facts.

But yeah…pretty much whenever their lips are moving is a good guideline to follow.

I would actually love to hear A) what Conservative has argued anyone is biologically inferior and B) how the Conservative ideology “correlates to biological inferiority and based on actual evidence.”

I will wait with held breath for the answer…

Actual CNN headline: “America Shuts Down”

poorrichardsnews:

The fear mongering over at CNN has been set to ludicrous speed.  They’re running the all-caps headline “AMERICA SHUTS DOWN.”  

Actually, CNN, America is just fine.  Why is that? Because America is not the government.  America is the people, and we don’t need an over-bloated Federal government to survive.

Except that the FBI, CIA, NSA, IRS, DEA, ATF, welfare offices, medicaid, medicare, the post office, USDA, federal police, the pentagon, the military and nearly all other offices/departments… yea America is totally shut down.

I thought I was about to see some wild shit.

How about instead of “killing the gun,” we actually blame and kill/punish the person who would carry out these acts. The gun is a tool, the person is the weapon.

Would it make the same sense if I made a gif set with cars smashing into things with the last one about to hit a kid? I mean, cars kill way more people (and kids) than guns.

Reality people, get with it.

I don’t get the concept behind the movie “The Purge”

They say unemployment is less than 1% and crime is at an all time low because of the purge.

How in the world would a night of violence drop unemployment and violence? Most violence isn’t out of a need to commit violence, it’s spur of the moment and emotional.

Hollywood just can’t hit the mark at all.

Why do I only have an awesome manly voice when I’m sick?

It’s deep and raspy right now. I want this voice all year round. lol

Hahaha, this is bullshit.
