A Pennsylvania couple is suing three Collingdale police officers for entering their home without permission in an effort to confiscate a cell phone legally used to record the officers during a February confrontation in front of their home. In the lawsuit, Kia and Michael Gaymon say that Officer Carl White entered the home without…

Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is to blame for the deaths of millions in Nazi concentration camps, according to 21-year-old reality TV star Jessa Duggar.
“I walked through the Holocaust Museum again today,” she wrote in post on Instagram, “very sobering. Millions of innocents denied the most basic and fundamental of all rights–their right to life. One human destroying the life of another deemed ‘less than human.’ Racism, stemming from the evolutionary idea that man came from something less than human; that some people groups are ‘more evolved’ and others ‘less evolved.’ A denying that our Creator–GOD–made us human from the beginning, all of ONE BLOOD and ONE RACE, descendants of Adam. The belief that some human beings are ‘not fit to live.’”
Duggar, whose family is featured in TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, compared the Nazi death camps to abortion in the United States.
“So they’re murdered,” she wrote. “Slaughtered. Kids with Down syndrome or other disabilities. The sickly. The elderly. The sanctity of human life varies not in sickness or health, poverty or wealth, elderly or pre-born, little or lots of melanin [making you darker or lighter skinned], or any other factor. ‘If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it? and He that keepeth thy soul, doth not He know it? and shall not He render to every man according to his works?” (Proverbs 24:10-12) May we never sit idly by and allow such an atrocity to happen again. Not this generation. We must be a voice for those who cannot speak up for themselves. Because EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS. #ProLife”
On her Instagram account, Duggar also said she visited the Creation Museum in Kentucky. She claimed that the fossil record proved that the biblical story of the great flood was true.
“If there really was a worldwide flood (as the Bible speaks of), what would the evidence be? Billions of dead things buried in rock layers, laid down by water, all over the earth,” she wrote. “And that’s exactly what we find. Billions of dead things buried in rock layers, laid down by water, all over the earth. An Evolutionist and a Creationist will look at the same thing, but come to different conclusions because of their different starting points.”
Jessa’s comments about abortion reflect her parents conservative Christian beliefs. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have previously compared abortion in the United States to the Holocaust.
“A couple of weeks after we went to the Holocaust Museum it dawned on us that there is a Holocaust taking place right here in America! More than 56 million lives have been destroyed in our country! That is over 4000 babies being killed and 4000 women being wounded each day,” her parents wrote in a blog post last year.
Jim Bob Duggar also compared the United States to Nazi Germany in a 2013 speech to the Values Voter Summit.
“I’ve been promoting local my whole life, but I’m thinking now that we may have shot ourselves in the foot. Michelle Obama asked us to grow gardens, and I believe everyone did.” So say shippers lik…
There is this silly myth that just because you know the person or can shake their hand or visit the location that local is safer. Stop believing the myth. All food needs to be handled and prepared properly.
Perhaps the most overlooked and underreported crisis in America is the privatization of the prison industry. “Free America” is anything but. The U.S. has more prisoners than any country in the world,…
"For Profit" Need say more?
There are certain things that shouldn’t be privatized or run for profit, this is one of them. Unfortunately as long as corporations can buy politicians now it will continue to occur as businesses continue to grab lucrative government deals through privatization.
“I have been thinking a lot about stupidity lately, largely, I suppose, because I spend a good deal of time online. I define stupidity as “remediable but unremedied ignorance,” and few human traits are more evident to a reader of your average website. It is relatively easy to discover that Barack Obama is not a Muslim; that the government of Israel was not responsible for the 9/11 attacks; that the Christian God does not hate fags; that your average everyday evangelical Christian is not simply itching for his chance to take over the government and impose theocratic law upon a nation of vile unbelieving reprobates. Yet people who could remedy their ignorance on these and many other matters consistently fail to do so. This is curious and significant.”—Against Stupidity (via azspot)
“To the Spaniards, the ‘Indians’ were simply their contemporary version of Canaanites. The first Europeans to settle North America also tended to see it as their Promised Land and the local Native American population as Canaanites who had no divine right to the land, and their fate was similar … You don’t have to be Stephen Hawking to figure this one out. Christians, taking the Bible as a how-to book, have killed pagans, taken their land, and rejoiced in God’s goodness. I mean, if it’s in the Bible, it can’t be bad, right? RIGHT?”—Peter Enns
Sorry, I just thought of another way to ask my last question. Incorporation is a state issued shield. How would stock markets, monopolies, and corporations exist without the state? The 1% use the state to abscond the wealth created by 90%. There's no other mechanism being used. They're not doing it because the market is free. Why do you think that giving power back to the workers will create more monopolies and market failure?
Your conclusion that I’m against giving power back to the worker is some fancy deduction work from “I say bullshit but you might get peeved at me since I’m not going to make a long drawn out argument. I think it’s wonderful that you see the human population so easy to understand and think that put to the test the worker, humans will do the right thing. Because only corporations do bad things.I saw it myself all the time, people would come into my office “my septic system just started to break out today so I wanted to get down here right away to start getting it fixed because I’m worried about my neighbors drinking water and the possibility of increased pollutants upsetting the balance of things.
And please let’s stop treating Corporations like they are something strange. They behave the way they do because ultimately it’s a human that is making the decision.
I just think it’s delusional thinking to believe that left to it’s own devices the human will do the correct thing. So strip away their liability immunities and such, it’s not like they need it as they staked the system for themselves only under a business name. If there weren’t corporations there would still be something with power that would try to make things better/easier for it’s survival. And again the ultimate engine driving this survival instinct is us. One family has 5 kids the other only two, predicting a hard winter and 2 kid family starts getting annoyed at 5 kid family. “Why did he have so many kids? That’s so unfair to us”and there it begins.
“A healthy relationship keeps the doors and windows open. Plenty of air is circulating and no one feels trapped. Relationships thrive in this environment. Keep your doors and windows open.

The U.S. believes there are about a dozen Americans fighting alongside extremist groups in Syria, not more than 100, as has been cited for months.
That’s not to say there is no concern about these other 88 or so Americans who officials say have been killed, arrested, traveled or attempted to travel to join the fight. But the U.S. only knows of about 12 who are currently in Syria fighting, FBI Director James Comey said Thursday.
Comey also said the U.S. believes it knows the identity of the British-accented masked man in the videos depicting the beheadings of two American journalists and a British aid worker. He declined to name the man or reveal his nationality.
He did not address whether the U.S. believes the man actually carried out the killings. The full beheadings are not shown in the videos, but the English-speaking militant holds a long knife and appears to begin cutting the three men, American reporters James Foley and Steven Sotloff and British aid worker David Haines.
The figure of 100 American militants joining the fight in Syria had taken on an urban legend status over the past few months as the Obama administration made its case to the American public for military action in Iraq and Syria. It’s unclear what significance the discrepancy has as far as Americans’ support for the U.S. military action, which so far has been strong.
Hey, FOX; Don’t look at it as You lost your “Hundred Lone Wolves”, but gained a new “Dirty Dozen”.
“The fact is, you are not free because your country has been taken over and occupied by another government. Fully 70% of your tax dollars go to the Pentagon, and the Pentagon is the real government of the United States. You are required under pain of death to pay taxes to this occupying government. If you’re from the less fortunate classes, you are also required to serve and die in their endless wars, or send your sons and daughters to do so. You have no choice in the matter: there is a socioeconomic draft system in the United States that provides a steady stream of cannon fodder for the military. If you call a life of surveillance, anxiety and ceaseless toil in the service of a government you didn’t elect “freedom,” then you and I have a very different idea of what that word means.”—
If you’ve ever wondered why anarchists disagree with anarcho-capitalists, or why anarchists say that capitalism is not a free market, then you need to read Gary Chartier’s “The Conflation Trap.” If you’re one of those people, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read it. Here’s a excerpt:
"Left-libertarians differ from the (current) libertarian mainstream both in terms of what outcomes they regard as desirable, and in terms of what outcomes they think a freed market is likely to produce.
With regard to the latter issue, left-libertarians regard the current domination of the economic landscape by large hierarchical firms as the product not of free competition but of government intervention – including not only direct subsidies, grants of monopoly privilege, and barriers to entry, but also a regulatory framework that enables firms to socialise the scale costs associated with growth and the informational costs associated with hierarchy, while pocketing the benefits – and leaving employees and consumers with a straitened range of options. In the absence of government intervention, we maintain, firms could be expected to be smaller, flatter, and more numerous, with greater worker empowerment.
Thus we tend to wince when libertarians (or many of them, to varying degrees) rush to the defense of elite corporations and prevailing business models and practices as though these were free-market phenomena. First, we think this is factually inaccurate; and second, we think it’s strategically suicidal. Ordinary people generally know firsthand the petty tyranny and bureaucratic incompetence that all too often characterise the world of business; libertarians who try to glamourise that world as an arena of economic rationality and managerial heroism risk coming across as clueless at best, and shills for the ruling class at worse.
This is also why we tend to be less than enthusiastic about the word “capitalism” as the term for free-market society; as Friedrich Hayek notes, the term is“misleading,” since it “suggests a system which mainly benefits the capitalists,” whereas a genuine free market is “a system which imposes upon enterprise a discipline under which the managers chafe and which each endeavours to escape.” (Law, Legislation, and Liberty, vol.1, p. 62.)”
Nope not going to back-up my words but I just see a giant heap of shit and it’s covered with Bull.
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
(Raw Story) An election mailer sent out to North Carolina voters by a Koch brothers-backed advocacy group contains misleading and incorrect voter registration information that may suppress voting, reports the News Observer.
The information contained on a “official application form” was sent to potential voters by Americans for Prosperity, a national conservative group based in Arlington, Virginia.
Hundreds of people who received the packet have contacted the State Board of Elections complaining that the information in it is confusing, contradictory, and in some cases, incorrect.
Joshua Lawson, a public information officer at the State Board of Elections said, “The phone calls have consistently been all day, every day.”
The right to vote is our most basic freedom and is the right from which all our other rights spring. The right to vote is freedom.
Idiots who believe the bullshit coming out of the Koch-invented Tea Party aren’t the friends of freedom they like to pretend they are. Freedom-lovers don’t fear voters. Tyrants do.
Isn’t this a felony. At least a form of Voter Fraud. After all if you can charge someone for falsely attempting to vote, then ANY form of voter fraud is a crime.
When you are evil incarnate such as the Koch Brothers and extremely wealthy, legal problems have a tendency to go away quickly or not be bothered with in the first place.
