Leonardo Dicaprio's Oscar Statue Reported Stolen


LOS ANGELES - The LAPD told MFNS they are investigating a break-in at the posh home of Academy Award winner Leonardo Dicaprio. Mr. Dicaprio reported to authorities he was victim of a home invasion early Monday morning, and his Academy Golden Oscar Statue was stolen. 

According to shaken and bloodied Dicaprio, after arriving home about 4:30 am from the Academy Award after-parties, two individuals described by Dicaprio as ski-mask wearing California Black Bears forced their way into the residence and proceeded to rough up Dicaprio, destroyed his DVD of 'The Revenant', crapped on the kitchen floor, then ran away with his Oscar Statue. 

The LAPD spokesman refused comment on rumors Dicaprio was sodomized by the bears, but witness at the scene told us Mr. Dicaprio held a death grip on his belt buckle and declined repeated request from officers to sit during the interview and investigation.

In Spurious Defense of Donald J.Trump

By Conrad Stankie III
Capital Improvements Coordinator
Middle Finger News Service HQ. NY.

Donald Trump is a great American. In the past nine months, he has done a masterful job of uniting millions of Americans from all different backgrounds, admittedly mostly by uniting them in their deep hatred and fear of Donald Trump. But that’s simply because they’ve not gotten to know him the way I have.

If only he had more TV exposure, then people would see the light.

I know all about the trash talking dished at The Donald. Unflattering slurs, like he’s a narcissist, a racist, a sexist, that he often insults people using coarse language unsuitable for a serious presidential candidate, that he lashes out at anyone who dares say a negative word about him, that he has a hair-trigger temper, that he is unpredictable and mentally unstable, and that he flaunts his wealth every chance he gets. And these are just his supporters talking. Don’t get me started about his detractors.

But these attacks are unfair. The Donald Trump I know is one to admire. Listen to my heartfelt defense of the man, who, God willing, will be the next President of this great nation.

Claim: Trump is not fit to be President. This is
totally untrue. He is every bit as fit to be our next
President as any other flamboyant reality star. In
fact, he'd crush 'Jersey Shore's Snookie' hands 
down in a head to head race for the White House.
Unfair. So he has a healthy opinion of his own point of view. So he harps on how he’s greater than everybody else. So he flaunts all the properties he owns worldwide. So he brags about how tough he is and how he’s the best deal maker since Thomas Jefferson engineered the Louisiana Purchase from France. So he likes to blow his own TRUMPet. Does that make Trump a narcissist?

I happen to know for a fact that you bragged to your dad about your third place ribbon in your middle school science fair. Do you see me calling YOU a narcissist?

Did it ever occur to you that just maybe underneath all of Trump’s bravado, there is a fragile little boy begging to be loved? That all of his braggadocio may be masking the excruciating pain of not having any friends as a young boy, or ever? No, I didn’t think so. You’re so heartless.

Sure, Donald Trump has a lot of money, no doubt about it. But he made his billions the old fashioned way, by starting off with millions, specifically inheriting a 2 million dollar stake in his father’s real estate empire. But that’s all he got and not a penny more. Think about it. $2 million couldn’t even buy a major league baseball team these days. And when you do the math, $2 million is a lot closer to ZERO dollars than it is to a billion. So if you round down, in a way he started out almost penniless.

It is true that he owns a fair number of properties, after all, his career was in real estate. He’s owned Trump Park, Trump Towers, Trump Plaza, Trump Casinos in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, approximately 14 golf courses all featuring the Trump name, a fleet of Trump helicopters and his own Boeing 757, Trump One. Okay, so he’s not very original when it comes to naming things. Or humble.

In reality, there are really only two occasions when Trump discusses his enormous wealth: When he is being televised – and when he’s not. In fairness, he only brings up his long list of resorts and office towers to attract well-endowed women in their twenties to do a photo op with him, usually at the opening of a Hooters restaurant. Either that or to point out how many jobs he’s provided for thousands of people – of which many are only slightly above the minimum wage (but don’t worry,  they’re most likely held by Mexican immigrants – who will soon be shipped back to Mexico, opening the door for real Americans to take back these jobs)

Claim: Trump is a Sexist: Totally Untrue. In fact
in a poll of 1000 young, struggling, unemployed
actresses who were asked: Who would you prefer
to marry, Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders? -
Trump won by 82%
Pul-lease. No man in America respects women more than Donald Trump. I dare you to name another presidential candidate who cares more about America’s sexiest models than The Donald. He cares about them so much he even married one.

It’s possible that on one or two (hundred) occasions, Trump may have referred to women as bimbos, dogs, fat pigs, slobs, or disgusting animals, and has at times said things in interviews like “a young and a beautiful ass is all a woman needs to be successful in life.

But he was taken out of context. For example, the complete quote was this: “I love the ladies. And I probably should not say that a young and beautiful ass is all a woman needs to be successful in life. The microphone’s not on, is it?”  See? A simple misunderstanding.

Simply not true. The fact is Donald Trump is all about family. He may be one of the most family-oriented men ever to run for the White House. In fact, he loves family so much, he’s gotten married three times. And none of the presidential candidates has worked harder than Donald Trump to keep Mexican families together, where they belong, with each other, in Mexico. 

It is true that on one occasion, Donald Trump referred to Mexican immigrants as “criminals and rapists.” But he was only referring to the 90% of Mexican immigrants he believes are dangerous thugs. If asked, he will quickly tell you that the other 10% are composed of people who are absolutely NOT criminals and rapists, although they do tend to be unreliable parents, slackers at work, and cheap tippers, according to the Donald. 

As for Muslims, Donald will be the first (and only) person to tell you unapologetically that Muslims love him. Millions of Americans misinterpreted his words when he proclaimed that we should keep all Muslims out of America. He was only acting out of concern for their own safety. He was trying to keep them safe from the rampant gun violence on America’s streets by keeping them safe at home in the neighborhoods of Syria and Iraq, protected by American drone strikes.

Ridiculous. I’m sick and tired of flimsy attacks, usually lobbed by Harvard psychologists who are experts on personality disorders,  that Donald Trump might somehow be mentally and emotionally unstable to hold the most important job in the world. First of all, he held the top job on The Apprentice, and that show did quite well in the ratings for several years. 

Trump’s critics argue that, with his mercurial temper and tendency to lash back at anyone who is critical of him, it would only be a matter of time before Trump presses the button to start a nuclear war against Russia, perhaps in response to Putin posting a nasty comment about him on Twitter. First of all, Trump is not nearly that volatile. It would undoubtedly take at least a couple of dozens negative tweets before he would ever even consider pushing the button. And besides, I am sure, that if The Donald decided to declare WWIII against Russia, or Iran or Norway for that matter,  they probably had it coming. The Norwegian ambassador should have known better than to make a snarky joke about Trump’s hair.

So please keep an open mind about Donald Trump. He can’t possibly be the worst person ever to be elected President. That honor would go to Millard Fillmore.

The Republican 2016 Dilemma

"The Republicans ought to be comfortable in their catbird seat, surveying nothing but knee-high cotton, corn as high as an elephant's eye and blue skies for as far as anyone can see. They have the happy prospect of running against a Democratic foe awash in scandal and chicanery. Few voters like her, nobody trusts her and she seems as likely to land in prison as in the White House.
But the Grand Old Party dare not break out the bubbly, not just yet. It's caught in a curious dilemma. The party elites, with their hands on the familiar levers of the party apparatus, are the helpless hosts of a party they can't control. They huff and they puff and then huff some more, but at the end of the day they're only exhausted, frustrated, and out of breath." — Wesley Pruden, The Washington Times

Al Sharpton Promises To Leave America If Donald Trump Wins The Presidency

I think Al Sharpton has all but guaranteed a Donald Trump presidency with a tantalizing new offer. The accomplished race-hustler says he’s leaving the US if Trump wins the White House. This may be the best endorsement of all time because I honestly can't think of a better incentive to bring out the votes than this.

Sharpton was giving a press conference for God knows what at a Center for American Progress event on Thursday. When asked about the GOP frontrunner, Big Al did his best to ensure a Trump victory.
"If Donald Trump is the nominee, I’m open to support anyone, while I’m also reserving my ticket to get outta here if he wins, only because he’d probably have me deported anyway."
Clearly Sharpton understands our nation’s immigration laws in the same way the he understands our tax laws, but that’s beside the point. The real news is that Sharpton, like so many whiny liberals, is going to exit America if Trump takes it all in November. He said it. It’s on video. I consider that to be a legally binding agreement. No backsies.
This could be the single uniting incident that brings us together as a country after 8 years of Obama tearing us apart.
The Problem is Al Sharpton is completely full of shit. He has a PhD in manure shoveling. What he says and what he does are two entirely different things. He has no intention of leaving if Trump wins; there’s no money in to for him. The only way Sharpton is going to abandon the US is if someone pays him to do it.
Hey wait, Trump might still be the man to make this happen. He’s a billionaire and can easily afford to pay Sharpton to get the hell out. Either that or, if Trump wins the presidency, he could threaten to prosecute Sharpton for tax evasion and the race-hustling reverend would probably leave on his own.
I don’t care how it happens as long as it happens.
I know I can free up a little time for you if you need some help packing there big guy....

I Had That Dream Again Last Night.....

Facebook Employees Keep Scratching Out “Black Lives Matter” And Writing “All Lives Matter” On Company’s Wall.

Bernie Sanders Supporter Redefines the Term 'Grassroots Support'

You Can Burn One for Bernie and His Campaign

Bernie Sanders supporters can take the phrase "Feel the Bern" to a
whole new level by buying weed pipes with the campaign's 
logo from  the Portland-based Stonedware Company.  

Ariel Zimman, a 29-year-old from Portland, told the Center for Public Integrity she will donate 10 percent of all proceeds she gets from sales of ceramic marijuana pipes emblazoned with the Vermont senator's campaign logo to the Sanders campaign. Supporters who want to take the campaign slogan "Feel the Bern" to a whole new level — most likely "Burners for Bernie" — will have to shell out $60 for a pipe and $30 for a chillum, according to Zimman's website

Sanders has previously introduced a bill in congress to end the federal prohibition on recreational marijuana and allow states to decide on legalization. But like most legislation Mr. Sander puts forth, everyone just ignores anyway. 

The 29-year-old told the Center for Public Integrity that she's already donated about $150 to the Sanders campaign and plans to send about $200 more in about a month. That's out of roughly $3,000 in pipe sales. "There is profit on my side of the business, but I'm also doing it for their profit as well."

Obama Reportedly Vetting Republican Governor for SCOTUS

The Spectacle 
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval's office says its the first he's heard of it, but sources "close to the Nevada governor's office" are saying that the Obama Administration has begun the Supreme Court vetting process for the Republican moderate and former Federal district judge.
Supposedly, Harry Reid has been running interference for Obama as the plan comes together - a plan that makes very little sense when you consider Obama and Reid would be selling out their liberal constituents for ease of process, and, ostensibly, to protect a Republican Senate. But, apparently, the process continues unabated, and looks, at least for now, promising. 
Brian Sandoval, the centrist Republican governor of Nevada, is being vetted by the White House for a possible nomination to the Supreme Court, according to two people familiar with the process.
Sandoval is increasingly viewed by some key Democrats as perhaps the only nominee President Obama could select who would be able to break a Republican blockade in the Senate…Sandoval met Monday with Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid, a fellow Nevadan with whom he enjoys cordial relations.
A person familiar with the conversation said that while Sandoval told Reid he had not made a final decision on whether he would accept a Supreme Court nomination, he would allow the vetting process to move forward. Another person in Nevada familiar with the process confirmed that the process is underway.
It's not that Sandoval is a bad guy. He's been mentioned routinely as a good, Republican choice to replace Harry Reid, and his name has been tossed around for Vice President a few times. But he's not exactly the scintillating legal mind that Barack Obama claims he wants on the court. 
He reportedly likes Justice Sandra Day O'Conner as a model for judicial excellence, which means he likes to go where the wind takes him on everything from Constitutional law to his lunch order.
There are obvious benefits to putting a moderate Republican forth. It would be the best conservatives could do, probably, with the prospect of President Donald Trump breathing down their necks, or worse, President Hillary Clinton or President Bernie Sanders. It also helps the Administration demonstrate their willingness to cooperate, however fake the willingness is, which would give a boost to people like Sen. Mark Kirk who want to push Sen. Mitch McConnell to open the confirmation process, rather than deny the President his SCOTUS pick. 
It's a good opportunity to troll: after all, how could Republicans in the Senate possibly refuse to confirm a member of their own party?  Obstructionism might cost the GOP the Senate, which would pave the way for either a President Hillary or Sanders to nominate the Westminster Kennel Club dog show judges if they so chose. Or worse, Barack Obama.
This seems like a weird gamble. But it also might just be a red herring, designed to play on Republican fears - after all, President Trump is looking likely, and any Republican would be better than whomever he'd nominate, probably. Scared enough and you'll go along with the Plan A.

Has Trump Stalled in His Voter Percentage?

by Robert Janicki
"I've previously posited that there will have to be a winnowing of Republican presidential candidates before the real odds can be determined in the GOP presidential nomination process.  We have now had our first serious campaign suspension as Jeb Bush withdrew his withering and failing candidacy shortly after the South Carolina polls closed on Saturday night.
 Bush's withdrawal can only help Cruz and Rubio.  It's difficult, practically impossible, to believe that any Bush supporters would migrate to Trump after what Trump has done to Jeb.  That said, many of Jeb's supporters may well jump to either Rubio or Cruz in an act of defiance for Trump's shameless treatment and denigration of Bush.
 As it stands now, the combined Cruz/Rubio voter percentage numbers are greater than Trump's numbers.  The question than becomes one of where Trump will get the necessary votes in subsequent primary elections to break through the voter percentage ceiling we have seen so far.  The only thing that the South Carolina primary has really demonstrated is that Trump's floor has dropped in comparison to the cumulative numbers of the other candidates.  Trump has not increased the ceiling number in his voting support.
 The next primary in Nevada, without Jeb Bush, may be an indicator of which direction Trump's voter base percentage is moving in relation to the combined Cruz/Rubio percentage of voters.  If the combined Cruz/Rubio percentage of voters continues to grow, this could be a serious blow to Trump's chances of garnering a majority of delegates prior to the GOP convention. 
 All that said, the longer the other two GOP candidates, Carson and Kasich, continue their very questionable candidacies, the advantage, if there is much, goes to Trump, especially as the GOP campaign moves to those states with winner take all rules in place by each state GOP organization.  This has to be Trump's plan to play off the other four GOP candidates against each other as he racks up larger numbers of delegates through the winner take all primaries.
 It remains to be seen if Carson and Kasich will see the light and suspend their candidacies before the important "winner take all" primaries.  Failure to do so will only enhance Donald Trump's strength in delegate numbers and could actually push him over the magic number of 1237 delegates necessary to win the GOP nomination outright before the Republican convention in July. 
 Will the Republicans coalesce around one candidate to meet Trump head to head?  Only time will tell, but the longer that Trump can string out the infighting among the remaining four Republicans, the greater his chances to win the GOP nomination."

A Tolerant White Leftist's View of the South

While perusing a very well known scummy west coast bay area leftist website (I refuse to link and give them traffic) that you feel you have to take a shower after reading, I learned the managing editor of this website (who I had an epic bitch-slap fight online with once) recently called out to her readers for massive contributions for a new server in order to continue to spew their tolerant leftist ideology. Their retarded minions gleefully came through to the tune of over $79,000. She gratefully thanked the readers and then revealed the server only cost $8,000, and with the rest of the proceeds she and her new husband would buy a used travel home (RV).

She then announced that she would take paid maternity leave, and she, new baby and her unemployed baby daddy (who she recently just married after she expelled his demon seed) would travel the country and report back and learn them up real good about the rest of the US of America. 

And long story short, lo' and behold, they actually had the courage to lowered themselves and wander into South Carolina and the rest of the uncivilized and destitute hillbilly racist south in the guise of covering the presidential primaries for her readers. 

Their commentary below would make even southern hating native sons like John Grisham proud, and shows just what bigoted ill informed neanderthals the left can be. I had to censored some of the language, but just keep in mind, this was written by a Woman.

Taking Vicious, Belated Pleasure 
In General Sherman’s March To The Sea

"There was a methy, crunchy-faced man in the gas station, glaring fire at us. My husband let his testosterone rise, ready to strike like a viper, should the need arise, at the man he contemptuously described as “what all those Confederate punks looked like,” while I snapped pictures of the massive slavery flag rising over the appliance parts shop next door.
If it were a romantic comedy, we’d eventually come to love Georgia. I guess. We would put a ring on Georgia, and move to Macon. But it was feeling more like a danse macabre, and we’d be ending up tethered together in the chicken coop.
My husband was getting pisseder and pisseder.
An Internet pal caught us just in time to turn from Augusta to Athens, where he promised home-fried chicken and a new pie, so we turned onto 78, a little two-lane highway with rolling fields and hills. My husband didn’t even see them; instead, “Stonewall Grill” was the first thing to catch his eye. 
“I’m not eating anywhere named after these dead slaver f***s!” he growled. It was lucky we had people in Athens, then, or we would have starved. But my husband amended his thought: “I’d eat at the F**k Stonewall Jackson Grill, if it were owned by black people,” he relented. He took some cheer in that.
 “Maybe the Stonewall is a gay bar!” I said, and he laughed for the first and last time. 
Then we saw a plantation house.
We didn’t see a single banner of the Stars and Bars raised for “heritage.” Charleston seems to have amended its ways in that at least, after nine nice people were murdered in church.
There had been plenty of memoria to the Confederacy in Charleston, of course, but we breezed right by those. Instead, we’d gone with a compatriot to Sullivan’s Island, where Stephen Colbert and maybe Bill Murray live, and where the graceful, gracious beach houses didn’t look too much like they were built with slave blood mixed into the mortar, mostly because the houses were built out of wood. We’d eaten delicious fresh shrimp, and the baby loved grits, and we took ugly pictures with South Carolina’s hilarious former governor and current Lowcountry congressman, that guy who was f***ing that lady for Jesus.
But Georgia was a different story, with its mean-faced men, and its massive, sky-high boner for the “states’ rights” to own black people, and its Stonewall this and f**k-you that. As we drove through those pretty hills, my husband took great and uncivilized glee ideaing on Sherman’s march to the sea. He knew he shouldn’t, he said; he knew there were war crimes, he said; but these forests were chopped down by slaves to make fields, and the ditches were dug by them, and f**k these f**king f**ks who moon over and long for their f**king heritage of GETTING TO OWN F**KING SLAVES.
My husband takes it personally. His forebears were Kansas Free-Soilers, and 10 out of 12 of his great-whatever uncles died fighting these pricks. He takes pride in his people; he takes their actions as a reflection of his personal virtue. Just as these people must do, but they’re taking pride in viciousness and idiocy. They’re also taking pride in losing, and their South Will Rise Again.
When it does, my husband says, we’ll put it back down. Tra la la, tomorrow is another day.
Are there unracist white people in the South? MAYBE. And are there racist people every place else? LOOKIN’ AT YOU, BOSTON. But Shy could not get over this death cult of white Southerners longing for “gentility” and also “treason,” raising their traitor flags while calling the rest of us un-American commies, saying “love it or leave it” when they’re the only ones who have. While we’re at it, f**k you too Daughters of the Confederacy, whitewashing the Civil War into “states rights” (to own people) and the “Southern way of life” (of owning people).
The only thing Shy left out in his ranting was calling these mother f***ers sister-f**king hillbillies, probably because that would be classist, and we are nice.
Which is a long way of saying that Atlanta, we’re in you (Memphis, we’ll be in you Tuesday night), and won’t you come and meet us tonight, from 5 to maaaybe 8, at the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club? 
We even promise not to burn anything down. Probably. But were probably not moving to Macon."
Gee, I really hope she's not joshing' about Macon and they mozy on back to their man butt sex paradise by the bay before someone indeed gets the idea to tethered them together in the chicken coop and charge the locals a $1.25 to see a real live pair of Bozo sapiens

I Almost Forgot My Black History Month Post

In 1972, a somewhat effeminate young Barry Soetoro was named by his classmates as
"The Most Likely to Swallow"

Louisiana Sheriff Puts Violent Street Gang On Notice:

"Don't Like What I Have To Say? I'm Easy To Find!"

The Gremlins street gang has become one of the most violent and brutal crime organizations in the South Louisiana area for years now. Louisiana authorities are not having it anymore and have practically declared an all-out war against the crime gang via a video message where authorities say they will “hunt” members and “return fire with superior fire.”

17 members of the Gremlins street gang have been targeted, with 10 arrested by local and state police, and are now working to locate and arrest seven more members of the gang. A $2,500 bounty has been placed on each of the remaining seven heads.

Bernie Tops National Poll For The First Time

The Hill
Bernie Sanders has passed Hillary Clinton at the top of a national poll for the first time in the 2016 race.  A Fox News poll of the Democratic presidential race released Thursday shows Sanders with 47 percent support to Clinton’s 44 percent.
That's a gain of 10 percentage points for Sanders a January version of the poll. Clinton's support declined 5 points.
Clinton posted leads as high as 30 points over the summer, but Sanders has been steadily closing the gap. While no other poll of the race going back to 2014 has ever showed Clinton trailing a rival, she led Sanders by just 2 points in the last two Quinnipiac University tracking polls.
It's unclear whether the numbers are outliers or indicative of a dramatic change in the race. Outside of the Quinnipiac poll, Clinton posted double-digit leads in all three national polls conducted in February, with the largest lead coming in at 21 percentage points.
“One thing that is clear from our poll — and others — is that Clinton has been losing support and Sanders has been gaining,” said Democratic pollster Chris Anderson, who assisted Fox News on the poll.
“And this process appears to have accelerated since the contests in Iowa and New Hampshire.”
Fox released the poll two days before Saturday's caucuses in Nevada, a state where Clinton has also seen a major lead evaporate. A CNN/ORC poll from this week found the White House hopefuls essentially tied there.
The Democratic establishment had long viewed Clinton as the inevitable nominee, but anxiety is growing, with some fearful that the campaign is slipping away from her.

At This Point, Is It Really Wise to Get in a Poo Fight With the Pope?

Just Seems Like an Unnecessary Distraction to me.....

The Obamas Won't be Attending Justice Scalia's Funeral, but Here are Six They Did Find Time to Attend....

While our disrespectful semi-retired President will probably be playing golf, and the First Wench will be doing what ever she does on our seems they both have a few 'I Don't Give a Sh*ts' they haven't used yet, and Justice Scalia’s funeral apparently doesn’t warrant Obama’s respectful presence. But here are six funerals that did.....

The Daily Caller
Senator Daniel Inouye (D-HI)
Less than two months before the 2012 election, both Obamas took time out of their schedule to attend the funeral of Senator Inouye. President Obama openly wept over the liberal senator.
Hadiya Pendleton
Three days before his 2013 State of the Union address, President Obama sent Michelle on his behalf to the funeral of 15 year-old shooting victim Hadiya Pendleton. Obama’s decision to send Michelle to the Chicago teen’s funeral set the stage for his SOTU address, in which he called for further gun control restrictions.
Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV)
Despite Robert Byrd’s well-known ties to the Ku Klux Klan, President Obama attended the Democratic senator’s funeral. Obama gave a speech at the ceremony and called the late senator his friend.
Reverend Clementa Pinckney
Reverend Pinckney, who also served as a South Carolina state senator, was one of the nine people killed in the Charleston shooting last summer. Despite never having met Pinckney, President Obama delivered his eulogy.
Former Democratic House Speaker Tom Foley
Just six months after snubbing the funeral of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, President Obama attended the funeral of former Democratic Speaker of the House Tom Foley. As he tends to do when actually attending funerals, Obama delivered a speech.
Walter Cronkite
 When the legendary newscaster passed away in September 2009, President Obama found room in his schedule to travel to New York for the memorial service. Once again, Obama gave a speech at the service. He had openly admitted that he never met Cronkite.
Barack, what a hell of a guy, eh?

Obama To Visit The Paradise of Cuba Next Month

Barack's Wet Dream
CNN- President Barack Obama will visit Cuba next month, multiple U.S. and diplomatic sources told CNN on Wednesday. The White House is expected to announce the trip Thursday. One U.S. source described the anticipated visit as short.
"We can confirm that (Thursday) the administration will announce the President's travel to Latin America, including Cuba, in the coming weeks," according to a senior administration official.
The trip, long expected, comes after Obama's administration formally reopened ties with Havana in late 2014, following a half-century of enmity.

Unofficial word is sources in the Cuban government leaked that a request the First Lady not accompany the visiting President in fear she might tip the island over....

Feds Create a Database to Track “Suspicious” Internet Memes

Tools of the Dissident - The Famous Subversive Triad 

This may not be the most money that the government has spent on a frivolous project, but it shows that they really are willing to funnel large sums of money into programs that accomplish nothing. Also, this project exposes the extent of the federal government’s paranoia about dissent and alternative political information.

The Free Thought Project
Washington DC – The federal government spent $1 million to create an online database that will collect “suspicious” memes and track “misinformation.” The project, which is known as the “Truthy Database” is being funded by The National Science Foundation, but it seems as if the operation has some powerful political motivations.
Ironically enough, the project takes its name from a term that was popularized by television personality, Stephen Colbert.
The project will seek to understand how misinformation is spread online, but it will be up to a team of government-funded researchers at Indiana University to decide what type of political speech is true and which is false.
“The project stands to benefit both the research community and the public significantly. Our data will be made available via [application programming interfaces] APIs and include information on meme propagation networks, statistical data, and relevant user and content features. The open-source platform we develop will be made publicly available and will be extensible to ever more research areas as a greater preponderance of human activities are replicated online. Additionally, we will create a web service open to the public for monitoring trends, bursts, and suspicious memes. This service could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate,the grant said.
The website for the project goes on to explain the importance of memes in their research, and their intentions to find out exactly where certain memes originate.

If Paul McCartney Were to Show Up at Your Party…

The Spectacle
Now I've seen everything.
"After the Grammys, Paul McCartney was actually denied entrance into a post-Grammy party hosted by rapper Tyga. The former Beatle was turned away along with Beck and Foo Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
McCartney took it in good humor stating, “How VIP do we gotta get? We need another hit guys, we need another hit.” He then turned to Beck and said, “Work on it.”
This is yet another diss for Beck. After being upstaged at the Grammys last year by Kanye West, you'd think being in tow with Paul McCartney would spare him any further indignity. Nope. One might question Macca's judgment in attending a party being thrown by a rapper. But Sir Paul is open minded kind of guy even at 73."

The irony on display here is lost to approximately no person. It shows the arrogance and disrespect for people who helped paved the way. The attitude and general state of the Black music is reverting back to it's primitive beginnings along with it's artist, sung yelled in an angry voice in barely understandable language, dancers jumping around like animals or hallucinogen effected warriors to a an annoying repetitious beat.  Gone are the melodic rhythms of a Marvin Gaye and the socially relevant lyrics of a Curtis Mayfield or the inviting story telling of a B.B.King.  

If the three all had been buxom blonde white girls wanting to attend the party, I'm sure things would have been different......

So if Paul McCartney Shows Up at Your Party…Do Me a Favor,
Open The Door & Let Him In.

Replacing Justice Scalia

Sen. McConnell vows that the choice of a successor to Justice Scalia, given the historic and long-reaching nature of the choice, should be that of the new president, whoever he or she may be. This is brave and defiant talk, unfortunately brave Republican talk often dissolves under pressure. Sen. McConnell must buck up the courage of his troops when they hear the sound of the guns. Everything is riding on it. Everything!

Given the huge racial and cultural divide in the country, and the fact that this president, above all others has made no bones about his EFF YOU AMERICA and use the courts to circumvent the people's elected Congress and push through his own agenda, it only makes sense that we defer to the American people who will elect a new president to select the next Supreme Court Justice.

Obama Attends Gay Gathering

With nothing better to do with his time, President Obama gases up Air Force One and flew across the country yesterday to attend numerous DNC fund raisers held at private residences in California and then gathered together with his buddy Ellen DeGeneres to gossip and gay dance a little bit and tape an upcoming show.

John Lewis Takes a Shot at Bernie's Civil Rights Creds

Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga)

Democrat loudmouth firebrand and U.S. Rep. John Lewis who has real bona fide creds as a Civil Rights advocate, mainly for getting his face bashed in while trying to occupy a bridge somewhere back in the sixties, has a problem with Bernie Sanders claims of street cred as a civil rights pioneer. While both seem to still be living in the 1960's, they don't seem to see the past in the same mind.
Sanders has frequently talked up his history as an activist while he was at the University of Chicago in the 1960s and touted his work with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. But Lewis, a civil rights icon and leader of SNCC said he never saw Sanders at any events.
“I never saw him. I never met him. I was chair of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee for three years, from 1963 to 1966. I was involved with the sit-ins, the Freedom Rides, the March on Washington, the march from Selma to Montgomery and directed (the) voter education project for six years. But I met Hillary Clinton. I met President (Bill) Clinton.”
Not really surprising Lewis doesn't remember a guy like Bernie. After all, the civil rights movement of the 60's were full of white communist sympathizers like Sander, and he'd probably remember him if he had been around stirring up sh*t.....
