      From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, Nerdy Wonka, for sharing the “Picture Of the Day” of a brilliant black woman and a brilliant black man. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t think I would live long enough to witness an African American President and two African American Attorney Generals of the United States. President Obama, Attorney General Lynch and former Attorney General Holder, have truly let their “little lights” shine all over the world despite the ugliness they’ve been subjected to.

      Dear Bob, I really see no difference between extremist right wing Christian fundamentalists and extremist right wing Muslim fundamentalists. Their shared MO is all about hate, intolerance violence, death and destruction.

      • May 30, 2015 at 1:25 am

        Could not agree with you more, nath. No matter the ‘belief system’ (aka ‘religion’) when it is used for hate, oppression, death and profit, it is the ultimate in human evil.

        • May 30, 2015 at 3:10 am

          Yes, indeed, Bob. Kevin Phillips, the reformed promoter of Richard Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” wrote an excellent book about fundamentalist Muslims, Christians, Jews and Hindus. They were all about exterminating people who did not share their beliefs.

    South Africa’s ‘brazen cover-up’ of Zuma’s home upgrade.

    The offence itself was bad enough – an orgy of overspending by obsequious officials and conniving contractors who managed to spend 246m rand ($21.7m, £14.3m) of public money lavishly upgrading South African President Jacob’s Zuma’s private homestead, Nkandla.

    That is nearly 10 times what taxpayers spent on Nelson Mandela’s two homes, and 20 times what it cost to secure Thabo Mbeki’s house.

    Instead Mr Zuma and his supporters have sought to undermine the credibility of South Africa’s public protector – whose exhaustively forensic report recommended that he repay some of the money – and have ridiculed the opposition for seeking to turn Nkandla into a presidency-defining scandal about accountability and corruption.

    Now the police minister – a man whose career is, of course, entirely dependent on Mr Zuma’s goodwill – has produced his own report, which spells out, in inadvertently comic detail, how conveniently the mosaic-inlayed swimming pool can double as an essential source of water for fighting fires.

      The only thing I can think is that there must be something in the Constitution we never heard of, called Freedom to be Assholes. Because some people sure do take advantage of that.

      “Somebody explain to me why these assholes can’t be brought up on charges of terrorism?”

      The only explanation I can think of, Dudette, is that they are protected by “White Privilege.” The same with the police who gun down unarmed black people.

      • May 30, 2015 at 7:50 am

        i agree…these are the domestic terrorists that Janet Napolitano spoke about…but they are not view that way because of white privilege and racism

    Silk Road drug website founder Ross Ulbricht jailed.

    The founder of online illegal drug marketplace “The Silk Road”, Ross Ulbricht, has been sentenced to life in prison.

    Prosecutors say that his dark web site sold more than $200m (£131m) worth of drugs anonymously.

    He was found guilty of charges including conspiracy to commit drug trafficking, money laundering and computer hacking.

    The site was shut down in 2013 after police arrested Ulbricht.

    In February he was was convicted by a federal court in New York of operating the site for nearly three years from 2011.

    Users used the online currency Bitcoin to purchase drugs such as heroin, cocaine and LSD.

    The untraceable deals earned him at least $18m.


    all that bitcoin bs.

    I really could walk up to some of these fools and slap ’em silly. And then slap ’em again.

      Great, great tweet, JOB! I am so sick of these so called progressive Democrats who never miss an opportunity to blame PRESIDENT Obama for all the ugliness in this country. Max Blumenthal is an idiot!

        Do they not hear themselves, nath? Over and over … it’s so very annoying!

        President Obama needs to be selected for sainthood (Ha!) in 2017! I’ll start that ball rolling!

    Pierce – as usual – finds an interesting take on the Hastert story

    “The story is so damned bizarre that you almost forget to ask yourself how Hastert could have become wealthy enough in public service to be able to afford to be shaken down for that amount of money.”

    So where did the money come from?

    NW, this is for you, to get you through the rain/floods, etc. I’m so, so behind in catching up with all posts. Thank you so much, especially with what you were/are going through weather-wise, and yet you kept your delicious sense of humor. Oh Bless!
