4 I'm a Duke freshman. Here's why I refused to read 'Fun Home.'

It's not about being uncomfortable. It's about being asked to do something that I think is immoral.

My first challenge came well before I arrived on campus, when I learned that all first years were assigned "Fun Home," a graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. The book includes cartoon drawings of a woman masturbating and multiple women engaging in oral sex.

Donald Trump: Well, I don't know. Obviously, I have very big support because I'm leading in every poll by double digits, and you know there is a movement going on. There is a whole silent majority thing happening, and it's very impressive to see. I will tell you, he was totally out of line last night. I was asking and being asked a question from another reporter. I would have gotten to him quickly. And he stood up and started ranting and raving like a madman. And frankly, he was out of line. Most people, in fact, most newspaper reports said I handled it well. He was totally, absolutely out of line.

Watchdog Wins Big FOIA Decision In Federal Appeals Court

Government transparency advocates won a significant victory Tuesday as a federal appeals court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission cannot use unreasonably high fees or excessive demonstrations of readership to deny document requests from journalists and other users of the Freedom of Information Act.

...

Independent of the FOIAs, Cause of Action officials believed they had found evidence that the commission was "unfairly and inequitably enforcing the guides based on requesters' political views, and infringing free speech rights."

...

Cause of Action was joined in its appeal by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and the Daily Caller News Foundation.

so BBC radio has this economist/banker type who lives in NYC and advises China

he says he doesnt believe our unemployment numbers

says we stop counting people after they have been unemployed for three months

that I believe

then he says - we solve our problem with unemployment numbers by incarcerating huge numbers of blacks and hispanics

see we arrest and incaercerate them so we dont have to count them

this, of course, is completely unchallenged by the radio host

Peruvian TV Host Charged With Bribery Begs Hillary Clinton To Give Her A Visa If Elected President [VIDEO]

A Spanish-language talk show host who had her U.S. visa revoked in 2002 after being convicted of accepting bribes in Peru says she hopes that Hillary Clinton will be elected president so that she can finally re-enter the country.

"I tell Hillary Clinton, who is also a mom and knows what it's like and how it hurts to be away from them, to evaluate my case, and hopefully she can give me a visa," Laura Bozzo told Telemundo's "Suelta la Sopa."

Bozzo has hosted shows similar to "The Jerry Springer Show" on Univision, Telemundo and other Spanish-language networks which have aired throughout Latin America and the U.S.

She was arrested in 2002 for accepting millions of dollars in bribes from the head of intelligence for former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori. She served several years of house arrest and fled to Mexico after being released.

Before I go off to work - for those who don't know, Alison Bechdel is the writer of an ostensible comic strip called Dykes To Watch Out For which is basically a decade-long shriek of rage at white men, straight people, Christians and Republicans. IOW, your typical never-wanna-grow-up-perpetual-adolescent angst.

My bet would be the reporter either had a stalker or an ongoing domestic dispute. Wouldn't surprise me if there was a TRO in place either, which is worth about as much as the paper it's written on.

In it, she whines about how Evil Executives are getting 300X the pay of Ordinary Workers, and she's gonna put a stop to it. Made me wanna ask, "you gonna get me $300K for a friggin' speech, bitch?"

Posted by: The Great White Snark at August 26, 2015 09:13 AM (ee9LE)

I'm a news junkie with a particular focus on military, geopolitical stuff. I read feeds, scan headlines, go deeper on some articles, ignore others...that kind of thing. I have no super-seekrit government and/or military contacts aside from some old Army buddies who do defense contractor gigs.

A nobody from Nowhere, Indiana, I knew the Pentagon's glowingly positive reports on its ISIS campaignwere bullshit months ago. What the Obama Administration has been doing re ISIS is a simulacrum, an illusion of action, and that's been clear to anyone with an attention span for quite some time. If the military has been over-optimistic in its reports and analyses, then lower-level Pentagon (and probably CIA) analysts have been doing it under pressure from higher.

Assad has less than half his army left. He's about ready to fall. When that happens--probably within a few months at most--ISIS will swarm all over what was once Syria.Calling what's about to happen a 'humanitarian disaster' is an understatement. Obama will pretend surprise and point to his 'faulty intelligence', and continue to do nothing.

I don't know how much interest ISIS actually has in Damascus. I think it's possible for Assad to hole up for the time being.

ISIS is looking toward Mecca, Medina, and Al Quds (Jerusalem) to fulfill their religious prophecies.

Not sure which one they're go for first.

But why waste the man power going door to door through shia neighborhoods to get to Damascus (or Baghdad for that matter) when they're of little strategic value.

It's a matter of attrition. ISIS is getting new recruits/conscripts. Assad is not.

Unless decisive action is taken, the outcome in that particular area is certain.

He could have just responded ' I would do what the law requires until such time as the law can be changed to prevent these scenarios as I have previously suggested. '

So advanced a case, apparently, it's not just the occasional aberrant blurt, it's the only communications the subject can make. Best response, of course, is to simply ignore these unsociable statements and let the professionals take care of the poor fellow. Paging Doctor Banhammer.
