Benjamin Moore Paint Names are ‘Racially Insensitive’

Progressives Today

A former Benjamin Moore employee named Clinton Tucker is claiming the paint colors “clinton brown” and “tucker chocolate” are named after him and since he’s black, they’re racially insensitive.”
Obviously Named After Our First Black President
Bill Clinton has the story:
"Tucker, who identifies himself as an African-American man in the lawsuit filed in Essex County court in Newark, said he was hired in June 2011 in the digital marketing department but quickly found himself being discriminated against, according to a write-up of the filing on
Tucker is seeking damages for discrimination, retaliation and a hostile work environment, according to the suit.
He claimed that when working on the online arm of Benjamin Moore’s campaign for their Williamsburg color collection, he learned of the new color “tucker chocolate,” which the suit called “extremely racially offensive.”
The Williamsburg collection also has colors named tucker orange and tucker gray.
Tucker then learned of the existing color “Clinton Brown,” which a co-worker pointed out to him as a joke.
“Despite [Tucker's] repeated complaints and protestations to BM management about these appallingly racial color names, no action was ever taken by Benjamin Moore to change the names of these colors,” according to the suit.
Tucker also claimed that he was demoted while white co-workers were given promotions, and that his request to take off work on Martin Luther King Jr. Day was ignored."
“Tucker orange” isn’t a target of his lawsuit.

Why Every Woman Should Arm Themselves

Saturday night after leaving a dinner and a little live New Orleans blues music at one of my favorite Cafe' Bars, my two female companions and I were approached by a man wielding a very large knife in an attempt to persuade us to turn over our purses to him. His nervousness told me he was not a professional at this at all. So I raised my purse and held it out to him at about eye level to block his view as I gently reached under my blouse. As he grabbed the purse, he was met with a bosom holster warmed barrel of my Walther PPK, and in line with his left temple. His expression was classic.

He dropped the knife and purse and said "please don't kill me lady....I'm just dead broke".

One of my sisters in victim hood laughingly said "What do we do with him now.....cut off his (insert your own term here)?" And out of the blue, my other girl friend said as she reached into her purse "You crazy #@%&*, you don't bring a knife to a gunfight", and handed him ten dollars. "NOW TAKE OFF YOUR PANTS!"

He nervously looked at me and I said "Do as the Lady says."

We sent him confused and bewildered on his way with his tail between his legs, and called 911 and reported a half naked man running loose in the area. Had I known he broke my purse mirror when he dropped it, I may have just put one in his foot.

Ladies, learn to defend yourself.

Wooo Hooo! Diogenes Middle Finger Turns 4

This weekend marks the start of the fifth year of Diogenes' Middle Finger/Middle Finger News Service. I can once again say it's been our best year yet. Keeping a blog up and running and interesting isn't an easy thing to do while running a business, traveling and maintaining a social life. But there are people, who, along the way have played a large part in helping it's success. And as stated in an earlier post, I would like to gratefully acknowledge their part.

First and foremost, I'd like to thank Big Fur Hat@iOwnThe World and Doug Ross@Doug Ross Journal, who early on recognized the faux genius of DMF.  Big Fur gave this girl her first exposure at the big boy's table known to us all as iOwnTheWorld, along with a piece of advise I wisely took to heart, and Doug Ross for awarding me my first year for efforts as a 'stumbling in the dark' new blogger, which sent me on my way with much encouragement. 

And I must Gratefully Thank Cardigan, and all the gang at iOwnTheWorld for the generous and frequent linkage and comments at the best site anywhere on the interwebs. 

I would truly be remiss if I didn't acknowledge a Very Special Friend, Comrade and Collaborator, Middle Finger News Ace Correspondent, the incomparable Earl of Taint

Earl's unique wit, artistic skills and timely incite into current affairs have brought an extra element of humor to this site I had not conceived. Our on-the-fly, 3 part MFNS report 'The Obama Girls Do Africa' remains second only to 'This is your Life: Barack Obama'  as the most viewed post ever at DMF, with at last glance over 64,000 hits. 

Earl, you ARE the BEST!

To all who come by for the serious stuff, the snark and satire or just to lurk, and to those brave enough to regularly leave comments, namely Odie, MadJack, Grunt, Eugene, Tiger Rag and Broadside Betty, as well as my newly acquired readers at Michelle's Mirror (ya'll don't be shy now, I don't bite) and my fan in the Vatican who comes by to check out the Good Monday Morning post, I Thank You all Very Much for your visits. You all make this endeavorer well worth the time and effort.

Cake and Ice cream for everybody!

Softening Up America For The Final Assault

With President Obama authorizing the release of 36,000 illegal immigrants back into the US population, many of who are convicted criminals of violent acts, our border security is in shambles. Border patrol agents told to duck and hide when confronted by well-armed drug cartel members, they are being ordered to allow illegal immigrants to cross as false and rehearsed excuses are used to get into the our country, this as our southern-most military bases are being used as daycare facilities for thousands of illegal immigrant children have been ushered across told that they will be accepted. Now disease epidemics such as measles are on the way to becoming major health risks.

The Obama administration has targeted states that defied their idiotic amnesty policies such as Arizona and Texas where illegal immigrants are being flown to and dropped off in major cities by the thousands with no end in sight. When asked about what the hell is going on, the White House response is, “We will continue to drop off these illegal immigrants in your cities.” The abject lawlessness and ambivalence is shocking. The disregard for the safety of the American legal citizen is outrageous, and yet it goes on unreported by the news media and unchallenged by the Republicans, whose job it is to defy such lawlessness!

 What we have is the equivalent of a softening up operation of chaos and internal compromise designed to completely cause this nation to collapse or succumb. All the signs are there. Every nation that has ever fallen prey to being internally corrupted have been defeated the same way we are seeing America being gradually eroded to the point of no return. All the while the sold out, bought out main stream media either refuses to report what is going on or is handed what they are to broadcast to the American public by White House press releases.

Do not kid yourselves. America is under siege by its own leadership. All branches of government with few heroic exceptions have been compromised and are no longer performing their duties based upon their Constitutional responsibilities. The people have been blinded with lies of narratives and biased news reporting thanks to the Democratic Party. The GOP has stood aside and watched exercising only token resistance.

One need only to look at the heads of the Dept. of Justice, Homeland Security and the National Security Adviser to see the agenda. 

Thanks to the Cloward Piven strategy utilized faithfully by President Obama and his minions, who have rejoiced in the destruction of all institutions of moral and traditionally of the American heritage, the people of this once great nation are allowing it to fall with eyes wide shut!

6.9 Million Multiple Voters on Roles in 28 States

Gaming the System
Some 6.9 million Americans are registered to vote in two or more states, according to a report obtained by
“Sensible approaches to roll maintenance are fought tooth and nail by radical special interests who can use the duplicity in the system to their advantage", says Catherine Engelbrecht, president of the election-watch group True The Vote. The cross-check program involves only 28 states and does not include the three largest: California, Texas and Florida.
“Duplicate registration is an open invitation to voting fraud,” said Clara Belle Wheeler, a member of the Election Board in Albemarle County, Va. “This ability to vote more than once dilutes the legal votes and changes the results of elections.” The interstate cross-check program matches first and last names and dates of birth to identify multiple registrations.But the data are not routinely used to purge duplicates.
“Increasingly lax standards in our election process produce increasingly unreliable results,” Engelbrecht asserted.
“The few conversations that are had about how to shore up these weaknesses are immediately seized on by certain politicians and special-interest groups as fuel to further divide American voters based on trumped-up race and class-based narratives....
"The vicious cycle can be fixed if citizens wake up, stand up and refuse to settle for a broken system.
SBE officials, who provided the cross-check data in response to a Freedom of Information Act filing by the Virginia Voters Alliance, did not respond to Wheeler’s assertion. 
Two national voting-rights groups — the League of Women Voters and America Votes — did not respond to Watchdog’s requests for comment.

Our Government in Action.....

Government bureaucrats: that thin, blue-flannel-suit line between civilization and Somalia. The Environmental Protection Agency, for instance, keeps us from having exploding water and headless chickens have done some odd things recently.  Contractors built secret man caves in an EPA warehouse, an employee pretended to work for the CIA to get unlimited vacations and one worker even spent most of his time on the clock looking at pornography. But it appears, however, that a regional office has reached a new low.

Management for Region 8 in Denver, Colo., wrote an email earlier this year to all staff in the area pleading with them to stop inappropriate bathroom behavior.  Eric Katz of the FedBlog tells America that EPA employees ARE POOPING IN THE HALLWAY, and that they are being told to STOP IT.

"In the email, obtained by Government Executive, Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor mentioned “several incidents” in the building. Confounded by what to make of this occurrence, EPA management “consulted” with workplace violence “national expert” John Nicoletti, who said that hallway feces is in fact a health and safety risk. He added the behavior was “very dangerous” and the individuals responsible would “probably escalate” their actions. 
“Management is taking this situation very seriously and will take whatever actions are necessary to identify and prosecute these individuals" 
He asked for any employees with knowledge of the poop bandit or bandits to notify their supervisor. EPA spokesman Richard Mylott provided the following statement:
“EPA cannot comment on ongoing personnel matters. Our brief consultation with Dr. Nicoletti on this matter, a resource who regularly provides our office with training and expertise on workplace issues, reflects our commitment to securing a safe workplace.”
“Dangerous”? “Escalating”?  Smearing shit around is a time-honored tradition in American government.

We Are the Radical Leftist of the NEA ... and We Have Your Kids

The Era of the Limousine Liberal is Back

Hillary Clinton is not the only prominent, rich liberal who is having trouble articulating their vast concern for the poor and income inequality. Recently, there has been a rash of major liberal figures downplaying the fact that American capitalism has been quite good for them, while attempting to hamstring it for the rest of America.

Of course, this debate began anew after Hillary Clinton made her infamous comment that she was “dead broke” after leaving the White House, despite her ownership of multiple homes. Clinton doubled down on the sentiment in an interview with The Guardian, saying she’s not “truly well off,” even though her net worth is around $100 million.

Hillary isn’t even the only member of her family who sounded tone-deaf on their wealth. Daughter Chelsea told The Telegraph she’s tried really hard to care about money, but just can’t:

“I’ve tried really hard to care about things that were very different from my parents. I was curious if I could care about [money] on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t.”
Enter Vice President Joe Biden, whose salary has been paid for by taxpayers since he was elected to the U.S. Senate at age 29, said he doesn’t own a savings account, even though he kind of does.

Back in 2012, inequality crusader Elizabeth Warren, who lives in a $5 million house and whose stock portfolio totals around $8 million, boasted about her wish that no member of Congress own stocks.

And finally, anti-capitalist movie-maker Michael Moore was asked in 2011 why he produces movies trashing the same economic system that made him a very rich man. Let’s just say after four minutes of trying, Moore really never cogently explained that conflict of interest.

It seems the era of the “limousine liberal” has returned. Self-proclaimed crusaders for the poor who rake in millions while attempting to undermine the very system that allowed for their wealth.

Big Brother Takes Up Residence in the Windy City

Progressives Today
Chicago To Begin Tracking EVERYONE In New Permanent “Big Data” Program
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has quietly given approval for a massive new and permanent data collection program that will keep track of just about everything and everyone who enters the city.

"The smooth, perforated sheaths of metal are decorative, but their job is to protect and conceal a system of data-collection sensors that will measure air quality, light intensity, sound volume, heat, precipitation and wind. The sensors will also count people by measuring wireless signals on mobile devices.
Some experts caution that efforts like the one launching here to collect data from people and their surroundings pose concerns of a Big Brother intrusion into personal privacy."
Ya think? Not to worry. The experts are assuring that nothing can go wrong:
"In particular, sensors collecting cellphone data make privacy proponents nervous. But computer scientist Charlie Catlett said the planners have taken precautions to design their sensors to observe mobile devices and count contact with the signal rather than record the digital address of each device."
How difficult do you think it will be to turn sophisticated tracking features on? It’s a brave new world we live in today, and it’s being recorded.

Progressive Caucus Applaud Release of Secret WH Drone Memo

 Unredacted press release can be seen Here

WH Finally Admits its Role in Causing the Illegal Tsunami

Breitbart News commemorates a milestone in the deliberately-created humanitarian crisis on our border, as the White House finally admits that President Obama’s unilateral dismantling of immigration laws might just have been a factor in bringing a tsunami of underage illegal immigrants crashing down on our heads:

"The White House admitted rumors of free entry to the United States are motivating migrants to risk the trek northward. Officials said they are pushing back against “misinformation,” noting that Vice President Biden’s trip to Guatamala to meet with the leaders of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico is part of that effort. The White House elaborated in a “Fact Sheet” distributed Friday that specifically, Biden “will reiterate that unaccompanied children and adults arriving with their children are not eligible to benefit from the passage of immigration reform legislation or from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) process. Republicans have argued that DACA and lax immigration enforcement has served to draw more illegal immigration."
You know who else is arguing that? The tens of thousands of illegal aliens streaming across the Rio Grande. Every last one of them, from the youngest unaccompanied minor to families hoping their young children are tickets to group amnesty, tells every single media outlet which interviews them the same story: everyone back in Guatemala or Honduras knows that if you get a child across the U.S. border, he becomes a sainted “Dreamer” and will be allowed to stay. It’s an idea spread by both informal word-of-mouth and news networks.

The idea that Joe Biden is going to halt this catastrophe by meeting with the corrupt governments of South America and handing out fact sheets is beyond ridiculous.

Barack Obama: Our Ultimate Embarrassment

Barack Obama is fiddling while the world burns. Iraq, Pakistan, Ukraine, Nigeria, Kenya, Syria. These foreign wildfires, with more surely to come, will burn unabated for two years until the United States has a new president. The one we've got can barely notice. 
The big Obama bet is that Americans' opinion-polled 'fatigue' with the world (if not his leadership) frees him to push his progressive domestic legacy. Meanwhile, Iraq may be transforming into (a) a second Syria or (b) a restored caliphate. Past some point, the world's wildfires are going to consume the Obama legacy. And leave his successor a nightmare."

ISIS Advances in World Cup Tournament

(MFNS) RIO-The soccer world was shaken today as the team from ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) overwhelming defeated heavily favored North Korea in the most chilling and sound defeat of the 2014 tourney.

Quickly down 2 to 0, Isis' Syrian born Belzal-el-Rosheed, better known as "The Assassin" went to work on the hapless Korean team and scored 3 unanswered goals to take the win. The coach of the NORK team lodged protest of two of the goals, claiming human heads kicked it into the net do not count as legal scores. The protest was quickly overturned by visibly shaken referees. 

This win for ISIS sets up a much anticipated and highly explosive eye-to-eye match with the rival Iraqi Al Qaeda Team set for this weekend. 

Update: The entire North Korean Soccer team has refused to return to Pyongyang and has ask for consideration of political asylum anywhere by anyone.

ISIS Issues Gruesome Annual Report for Financial Backers

Reports on Assassinations, Suicide Missions and Bombings
"With its carefully collated facts and figures, it reads like a set of company accounts.But closer inspection of the 400-page document reveals it is a chilling breakdown of the murderous activities of the fanatics battling for control of Iraq.
For this is the 'annual report' of the Al Qaeda-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), designed to demonstrate its power and attract funds from potential donors. Like any corporate document, it uses computer-generated graphics, details a management strategy, lists performance and targets."
"The report, written in Arabic with a photograph of an ISIS gunman on its cover, has been analysed by the US think-tank, the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), which has corroborated much of the information. John Lawrence, of the Washington-based institute said: 'These numbers are not just purely propaganda figures.'
ISIS even records the number of people who renounced Islam then repented – and contains one sickening category headed 'apostates run over."

Maybe this will give Commander Zero a reason to turn the Flyboys loose with a few cruise missiles and 2000 pounders on these worthless animals - possible pirated Photoshop and Microsoft software.

Dems Target Scott Walker

It's Always Easy to See Who They Fear the Most

Prosecutors:  Walker, Karl Rove involved in ‘criminal scheme’  

via Poor Richards News:
"Prosecutors are alleging that Governor Scott Walker and Karl Rove were part of a “criminal scheme” which coordinated illegal campaign fundraising." 

From JSOnline:
"Prosecutors allege Gov. Scott Walker was at the center of an effort to illegally coordinate fundraising among conservative groups to help his campaign and those of Republican state senators fend off recall elections during 2011 and ‘12, according to documents unsealed Thursday. In the documents, prosecutors lay out what they call an extensive “criminal scheme” to bypass state election laws by Walker, his campaign and two top Republican political operatives — R.J. Johnson and Deborah Jordahl. The governor and his close confidants helped raise money and control spending through 12 conservative groups during the recall elections, according to the prosecutors’ filings. 
The documents include an excerpt from an email in which Walker tells Karl Rove, former top adviser to President George W. Bush, that Johnson would lead the coordination campaign. Johnson is also Walker’s longtime campaign strategist and the chief adviser to Wisconsin Club for Growth, a conservative group active in the recall elections."
"It’s hard to say at this point how big of a scandal this really is. Often times, my first reaction to anyone being charged with a crime is: “Now, why is that illegal again?” Campaign finance law is generally one of those issues for me. I truly believe that anyone should be able to give whatever they want to whomever they want. No questions asked. It’s called liberty."

So-Called Comprehensive Immigration Reform

"Comprehensive immigration reform' is not meant to be reform. It is not comprehensive, and it has little to do with legal immigration. If it did, we would be told precisely how the border was first to be secured; on what grounds those illegal aliens with criminal records, those on public assistance and without a work history, and those who just arrived would be deported; and how legal immigration in the future would be adjudicated. All that is never quite spelled out, because activists do not want the border closed. They do not want anyone deported under any circumstances. They do not want legal immigration to be meritocratic and ethnically and racially blind. But they cannot say that publicly, so they revert to the slurs of 'nativist' and 'racist.' To the degree that any would-be reformer wishes any of the above clarifications, it is probably only on the assumption that Barack Obama won’t enforce such laws anyway, but would pick and choose those that suit him, as he has in the past." - Victor Davis Hanson, Hoover Institution

Moochell Not Getting Paid For All The Hard Work She Does

Our nations First Lady wears many hats, and takes the responsibilities of her given position seriously, but sadly monetarily uncompensated. With the President on the road promoting his 'Take Down America' agenda, and the Vice president out doing whatever he does, she quietly takes the opportunity to sometime to do important work for the nation in their absents.

"First lady Michelle Obama is “kind of a bad example” for the need for pay equality, President Obama joked Tuesday.
“I will say, the first lady’s kind of a bad example because the first lady doesn’t get paid. And she works pretty hard,” the president said at a roundtable discussion on manufacturing in Pittsburgh.
The quip came at the end of an extended discussion about how family-friendly policies were good for business. The White House has championed equal pay legislation that would provide additional protections for female workers, but the bill stalled in Congress earlier this year."
Perhaps the ol' gal is entitled to a long vacation at our expense or relive the stress of a hard days work of being important figure in the remaking of American.

The same pack of rats that take your house or your bank account
if they don't get what they demand...

The Internal Revenue Service says it can’t produce e-mails from six more employees involved in the targeting of conservative groups, according to two Republicans investigating the scandal.

The IRS recently informed Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp and subcommittee chairman Charles Boustany that computer crashes resulted in additional lost e-mails, including from Nikole Flax, the chief of staff to former IRS commissioner Steven Miller, who was fired in the wake of the targeting scandal. Lerner’s e-mails rekindled the targeting scandal and today’s news has further outraged investigators.

As noted at NewsBusters, ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer,” “NBC Nightly News” and “CBS Evening News” all neglected the bombshell on Monday night in favor of stories about Starbucks, Britain's little prince and the always newsworthy Alex Trebek.

BREAKING: GM Plans Recall of Every Car Every Built

(MFNSDetroit - Due to todays newest recall of GM autos and  the furious amount of recalls of General Motor's products in resent months, our sources have been told GM is working on a plan to recall and buy back all vehicles ever made by the giant automaker.

GM executives are in talks with the Obama administration for permission and resources to undertake the largest buy back of a consumer product in history.  The United Auto Workers Union today enthusiastically said they are on board 100%.

United Auto Workers Union President Bob King
Bob King, UAW president told us " thanks to the suckers...uh... the American taxpayers for bailing out GM and our over-payed, ridiculously compensated and bloated retirement plans in the past....I'm confident they will lay out the cash and do it again in this plan buyback. Hey, sometime we have a bad year here and there and build really shitty cars. It happens."

GM's plans are to recall all cars and reimburse the owner on a pro-rated basis of between 85 to 100% of the vehicles original price. The credit for the reimbursement will go towards GM's newest creation, the futuristic "Peoples Car".

 The People's Car - 2015 Baracko

The new 'Baracko' is GM's latest creation and is said to be a 100% safe crash proof electric automobile, designed with state-of-the-art 21st century vacuum tube instrument technology, and with a total of only 9 moving parts for reliably and low maintenance.

Being a true 'People's Car' it will be personalized to the owners ethnicity by being issued in the colors Black ,White, Half-Black, Red, Yellow, Brown, and for those Gay Americans wanting to fly their freak flag, it also comes in a Rainbow Motif.

"Missing" Emails?

"A growing number of computer professionals are stepping forward to say that none of this makes sense. Norman Cillo, a former program manager at Microsoft, told The Blaze: 'I don’t know of any e-mail administrator [who] doesn’t have at least three ways of getting that mail back. It’s either on the disks or it’s on a TAPE backup someplace on an archive server.' Bruce Webster, an IT expert with 30 years of experience consulting with dozens of private companies, seconds this opinion: 'It would take a catastrophic mechanical failure for Lerner’s drive to suffer actual physical damage, but in any case, the FBI should be able to recover something. And the FBI and the Justice Department know it."
"Normally, an independent prosecutor would be appointed to get to the bottom of all this. But don’t expect such a move from Attorney General Eric Holder. When he was the No. 2 official at Justice during President Clinton’s second term, he was instrumental in blocking the appointment of any new special prosecutors for various Clinton scandals. - John Fund, NRO

“Mae-Mae” Burbank's funeral just like she lived life - smoking, drinking, partying and living off the taxpayers!

“Mae-Mae” Burbank passed away last week. The woman’s two daughters said their mother was “full of life” and they wanted her funeral to reflect her life. The sisters told the funeral home directors at Charbonnet Funeral Home in New Orleans about their mother and planners came up with a way to honor Mae-Mae and sent her off in style. 

At the funeral, Momma Mae Mae was propped up at a table in a living room setting holding her favorite things, a menthol cigarette and a glass of beer. A crossword puzzle and Saints helmets were also featured on the table.

I though the revolving colored light balls were a nice touch......

Worse Than We Could Even Have Imagined

"Barack Obama spoke on Iraq earlier today, pledging to do nothing and essentially saying nothing, even as that nation is breaking apart, with Islamic militants overrunning Iraq and vowing to capture Baghdad.

In light of the unfolding disaster in Iraq, which is linked to the unfolding disaster in Syria, which is part of a broader failure in the Middle East, which is only one part of an across-the-board failure in foreign policy, which is separate from the failures at home–including and ObamaCare more broadly, chronically high unemployment, the stimulus and “shovel ready jobs,” a historically weak economic recovery, the lowest workforce participation rate since the 1970s, increasing income inequality, and record poverty–the following needs to be said. Even those of us who were highly critical of Mr. Obama early on, who twice voted against him and worked in campaigns to defeat him, could not envision how epically incompetent he would be.

The harm this man has done is immeasurable. And he still has more than two years left to go. Mr. Obama belongs in a category all his own." - Peter Wehner , Commentary Mag.
