    First off, someone needs to learn what “mutually exclusive” means, so he can recognize when two things AREN’T.

    And SECOND, what part of “protesting racism” do you NOT understand is linked to the greater likelihood of blacks to be the victims of violence, whether by private citizens…or at the hands of fascist scum like the Milwaukee Police Chief.

    “Eric said his spouse is from El Salvador, and it has taken them 17 months and $6,000 to be able to legally bring him to the United States. President Obama’s expected executive action on immigration “spits in the face” of everyone who has obeyed the law, he said.”
    Pssh, you got off EASY–try being Mexican, Indian, or Chinese.

    Also, the headline could have just as easily said “self described idiot calls in to explain why he has no credibility, and make an ass out of himself in the process.” XD

    “Police Union: Seems Unlikely Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson Will Face Charges in Michael Brown Shooting”
    LOL–”police say Darren Wilson probably won’t face charges from a white supremacist “justice system” for something they see no problem with.” XD

    Seriously–who’s SURPRISED by this?

    A majority of Americans would be wrong then (assuming that’s a meaningful and accurate characterization), and it would HARDLY be the first time.

    ALL human beings, by right of being human, and by the necessity of some minimum level of parity of power for a GENUINE democracy to exist and for freedom to have any more meaning than an empty phrase, are entitled to:
    (1) Sufficient Healthful Nutrition
    (2) Sufficient Potable Water
    (3) Sufficient Shelter
    (4) Sufficient Healthcare
    (5) Sufficient Information (which includes education, but also more–the information you would need to make important choices, such as regarding representation, the policies you prefer, etc.)

    WE are the government. It is not some foreign entity, it is OF US. And when it fails us, we make another more in the image we desire. And ultimately WE and WE ALONE are responsible for our own governance, the quality of life we shall have. All your protest is useless against the truth, so you have a simple choice between seeking what is true and good–what will, fortune willing, aid your survival–or you can keep walking to the slaughter. It’s your choice. It was never anyone else’s. And you will only have yourselves to thank or blame for you fate.

    LOL–SOMEBODY doesn’t understand the difference between choosing not to deport someone and giving someone citizenship. XD

    As long as we to execute one of you fascists for every person crossing the border you shoot, I’d be okay with that.

    (1) NOTHING Obama has remotely hinted at is outside his constitutional powers.
    (2) We should probably wait until Obama has ACTUALLY issued an executive order before we start purporting to make categorical characterizations about it–IDLE speculation about hypothetical executive orders that haven’t happened and may not even ever come is not only a waste of time, it makes you look like a stupid ass.

    I see you believe everything you’re told about how capitalism works, instead of bothering to find out the reality. Indeed capitalism WOULD be wonderful if people got the value their labor was worth–but capitalism does PRECISELY the opposite and alienates the laborer from the value of his or her labor. What EXACTLY do capitalists do for anyone else MERELY by owning things and being legally entitled extract rents from such ownership? Being a capitalist is the equivalent of taking enough property de jure hostage that you force others to deal with you as an economic broker, based solely on arbitrary fiat of law, who ransoms others for the privilege of economic participation–they’re little different than the lords of feudalism.

    Yeah, he sure knew about hope and love–that’s why he sponsored genocide in Latin America.

    Reagan is just such a PERFECT symbol for modern conservatism–a total sham from head to toe, utterly morally bankrupt, insane, a puppet for others who have some ACTUAL degree of self-awareness, and somehow having deceived substantial proportions of the population into not seeing this despite MOUNTAINS of available evidence; more than they could ever hope to fully hide.

    WOW–it’s PAINFULLY obvious that the writer of the article (or wherever their information is coming from) knows NOTHING about the immigration laws of this country based upon what he wrote.

    As to the face-slappins an such–good for Obama for so many reasons, on so many levels, and if he’s thinking what I’m thinking he’s thinking, then I HOPE the Republicans stay true to themselves and play directly into his hand! XD #NotMyCongress

    “Harry Reid implies illegal immigrants aren’t ‘real criminals’”
    He implied it? Well I’ll just SAY it–there’s no such THING as an “illegal’ immigrant. Immigration PER SE, cannot legitimately be criminalized.

    Well we KNOW there’s going to be lawsuits against Obama’s executive action trying to stop it–that much is CERTAIN. The question is whether they will win, and as awful and fascistic as the courts are right now, that’s still by no means certain–and the hardest part of proceeding by this method (besides how long it will take–it’ll be expensive too, but I doubt, sorry I KNOW in light of that last shutdown debacle(s), Republicans don’t give a **** about that if it’s to spite Obama; plus they could always get their masters to pay for it, and it wouldn’t be **** to a billionaire) is probably that Obama would have a lot of control over the likelihood of success of such a lawsuit by deciding how bold he wanted to go. He can tailor the executive order to make it nigh impossible (it’s never IMPOSSIBLE where a court is involved) under current precedents to hold the order invalid. And as much as I’m POSITIVE 4 current members of the SCOTUS and MAYBE a FIFTH are looking for ANY excuse to spite Obama generally and SPECIFICALLY to stop the moves he wants to make on immigration, they know, I think, the importance of remaining within the bounds of their institution–that their power and authority is dependent upon that, and up being seen as authoritative. They will not expose themselves (at least, I don’t think a total of FIVE would) to the charge of a patently baseless holding and a nakedly purely partisan ideology-driven result–and maybe even the possibility of THEIR OWN impeachment.

    “Because the spending bill “must” pass, Republicans who have been fighting to include language in that bill that stops Obama.”
    First, that’s a fragment–and not because it starts out with the word “because.” Jesus Christ–you’d think with all the money he’s raking in from you rubes, Glenn Beck would be able to hire an editorial and/or writing staff with the competence of a class of high schoolers. And they complain about IMMIGRANTS’ English!!! The NERVE!
    Second, putting something into the next omnibus budget/spending/appropriations bill to try to stop Obama’s executive action would be the SMARTEST thing they could do (within the constraints of them still fighting against Obama’s executive order, which is an INCREDIBLY STUPID idea in and of itself, that is). It’s the ONLY way to ensure Obama has to confront their action while possibly taking any risk (otherwise as they point out, he can just veto any rescission bills or specific laws that aren’t riders attached to other things he might want…which would of course mean Republicans having to send him ANOTHER bill he at least partially wants, which must almost LITERALLY kill them), and it’s the only way they MIGHT avoid total blame for the possible government shutdown and/or the failure of the funding bill to pass, because at least then if Obama vetoes it they can try to spin it like it’s his fault, not theirs for putting it in.

    “Jack thought this all a bit odd, but had nothing to hide and answered the questions. The professor then began to lecture Jack on how wrong it was for the CEO to make more than 10 times the average pay of the workers who actually did the work.”
    LOL–and that’s the LOW end today. Those with multimillion dollars salaries (which is where “Jack” would probably be at if he’s the founding CEO of a “40 year old widely respected international behemoth” as you say) fall more in line with 50 to 100 times the salary of his lowest paid employees (assuming they’re paid minimum wage–if he paid them more, obviously that ratio wouldn’t be so severe) OR MORE, depending upon how MANY millions his salary is. AND IT GET’S BETTER–that’s ONLY looking at WAGES; put TOTAL benefits of employment packages side by side and it ONLY GETS WORSE. Are ANY two human beings EVER that disparate in their ability, the value of their labor? I HIGHLY doubt that–it seems ALMOST as dubious a premise as theism–and I KNOW virtually all the scum in those positions right now CERTAINLY aren’t that much more valuable than their least paid employees; plenty of them probably aren’t even AS valuable as their least paid employees! *cough* Donald Trump */cough*

    “These illegal immigrants aren’t going to take the jobs of Obama’s liberal Ivy League friends. They aren’t going to take the jobs of his millionaire bundlers. They aren’t going to take the jobs of his billionaire limo-riding, private jet flying, Democratic donors. They pose no threat to Hollywood celebrities.”
    But the revolution WILL make those people get real jobs.

    In all fairness to you, our Constitution is relatively short, easy to read and “know” in that sense–but that alone tells you little without knowing the history of court cases and interpreting and applying those provisions, where “the rubber meets the road” so to speak. And THAT’S basically a full time job. So it’s excusable, I think, that you aren’t a constitutional scholar, nice as it would be if you had the time and resources to do that and whatever profession you’ve elected (insomuch as any of us elect for our profession) to join.

    “To the question, “Who won the Civil War?” she receives such responses as “America?” Another student replies, “You mean the one in 1965?””
    TO BE FAIR–the first one is TECHNICALLY accurate, and I could see how one could confuse the Civil War with the Civil Rights Movement (which was going on very close to 1965, incidentally 100 years after the end of the civil in 1865) as “Civil” is in the names of both, and both involved an effort by people with a modicum of sanity and humanity to stop people who had cast away both to spite black people; the parallels are actually striking when you think about it. But yes, it’s all rather embarrassing for the students shown in the video.

    ” But sadly, these same interviews could be repeated on almost any college campus and reveal a similar ignorance about American history.”
    Cites? Or are you just trying to use an obviously highly selectively edited (and of course it is–it’s trying to prove a point; that doesn’t mean it isn’t painful and embarrassing for these students, or INDEED a problem for them and any student being in college with similar ignorance, but it ALSO doesn’t mean it is representative) piece of anecdotal evidence to prove a claim you just pulled out of your ass?

    “Consider 2011 court testimony from Pastor David Martin of Pinebrook Baptist Church, one of the 10 churches that was damaged by the arsonists, who were given multiple life sentences for their actions.”

    Gang rape a girl at a party on video and post it on the Internet–one to two years you POOR THING.

    Shoot an unarmed wounded black teen in the street who possess a threat to no one, isn’t even in arms length of anyone–here’s a ******* medal you HERO.

    Burn down some buildings that charlatans use to peddle false hope to the most vulnerable among us–MULTIPLE LIFE SENTENCES YOU ******* MONSTER!!!!!!!

    But no–this CERTAINLY isn’t heinously ****** up or reflective of a deeper moral bankruptcy and utter failure to properly prioritize values in American culture; go back to your football America, nothing to see here.
