I look at that picture and chuckle because of how deeply it would make some OSHA busy-body shudder. Ladder not secured; workers not wearing harnesses; no hardhats and those probably aren’t safety glasses; no gloves; the patent leather shoes certainly don’t have steel toes; no reflective safety clothing…
Just a couple of good ol’ souls putting up a sign honoring the great American spirit of exploration and discovery.
My goodness, how far we’ve sunk from those adventurous days when anything seemed possible. This nation is a hollow shell of its once great self, populated by a cowed and insignificant mass who would rather be led by the nose than strike out on their own.
The workers simply went in there quick and clean to get the sign up before gunfire broke out! It was in Chicago, after all!
Good morning. Is there any way to kill the autoplay on the “Daily Show” clip?
At the bottom of the frozen image of the embedded video is a quip from an MessNBC viewer that reads: “It doesn’t mean we’re in a post-racial society or that racism has been eliminated,” says Obama. But thing, he says, are getting ‘better.’ ”
Apparently being “mature” doesn’t mean being able to write well. “thing … are getting better”?
Please, Daniel…I just blew coffee all over my computer!
Obama’s still race-baiting! “I could have been him 35 years ago!” Referring to Trayvon
That could be true…a teenaged punk, dope smoker in a hoody? Yup, that fits, except 35 years ago he was living in Maylasia or somewhere!
If anyone wouldn’t mind sending some prayers the direction of Pixburgh’s Presbyterian Hospital, it would be greatly appreciated. My grandmother’s having ocular surgery after being involved in a car accident yesterday. Thankee kindly.
Dr. Schplatt, you’ll likely appreciate Gram’s response to news she might lose her sight in the eye on which they’re operating: “Eh, that just means I’ll get to wear my Raiders eye-patch.” Phyllis Livingston, always ready with a wise-ass reply.
Done and done. Wise assery must be in the genes!
Praying for her Eric!
All the best to her.
My prayers go out to her. God bless her.
Surgery = a three-hour success, Gram currently in post-op. Thanks for the prayers, everybody!
Been through eye surgery,it’s tough.Hope all turns out well.
I don’t believe it’s race that’s the motivator. I do think that it’s a side fact that most blacks are leftists, however. Color has nothing to do with it, politics do! Speaking of raging racists, how’s that POTUS of yours doing? Still denying his white half, I’ll wager! At the very least, he never mentions it, hoping no one will think he’s anything but black! And everything out of his mouth regarding the Trayvon thing has been race-baiting!
Oh, and who did that study? An unbiased group of behaviorists? Or a bunch of liberals bent on making the right look bad?
“We wanted to address a question on the minds of many: Do negative racial attitudes attract BLACKS to the BLACK PANTHER movement? Our data suggest that prejudice may explain why some BLACKS become movement supporters,”.
“We wanted to address a question on the minds of many: Do negative racial attitudes attract MEXICANS to the LA RAZA movement? Our data suggest that prejudice may explain why some MEXICANS become movement supporters,”
Some? Some? They must have used a government grant and taken 3 years to come to the Earth shattering conclusion that at least one white person was drawn to the tea party because of racism. (Some = at least 1)
What a valuable study!
Since BarryO’s apparently up from the depths of the “No, duh” pond …
How many killings has Sharpton incited…wasn’t just truth that died.
From the mighty Jim Treacher, some fun for BarryO:
“Barack Obama is the worst president in the history of the United States.
Another president was at the helm when the worst terrorist attack on American soil happened even after being warned of its potential. Another president was at the helm as the countries’ economy went from thriving to the worst recession since the great depression.
Correct on the first, however if Clinton had taken out Bin Laden when he had the chance, 9/11 might not have ever happened. Understand that Bush wasn’t in office long enough for 9/11 to have been his fault anyway. The Cole bombing and the first World Trade Center bombing all happened on Clinton’s watch! As for the second point, you are dead wrong. The economy is much worse now and with a huge deficit as compared to Bush 43. The reason, of course, did happen during Bush 43 because of the dirty housing dealing done by a majority Democrat Congress the last part of the Bush Admin!
9-11, 9 months in. Don’t be ignorant and a douche.
Economy, I’ll give you part of that, but Barry has taken a sick patient and tried to kill him. Also, there’s this little thing called Congress, which was in Democratic hands for awhile, so it is only partial.
