Because human resources.

TL;DNR = Jews run Hollywood, goodbye Letterman, you white anarchism from 1955.

I was never a big Letterman fan, but that's just a stupid blog post.

Wasn't white enough in my opinion. How did he allow those Jews Eddie Vedder, and Bob Dylan on stage?

No doubt many American Caucasians share your view. You're so predictable.

Never watched Letterman for a whole episode, but the Foo Fighters were the last musical act. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Alabama is set to become the most socially liberal state in the nation. Well done, Edina!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (May 23, 2015) – This week, the Alabama state Senate passed a bill that would end the practice of licensing marriages in the state, effectively nullifying both major sides of the contentious national debate over government-sanctioned marriage.

Introduced by Sen. Greg Albritton (R-Bay Minette), Senate Bill 377 (SB377) would end state issued marriage licenses, while providing marriage contracts as an alternative. It passed through the Alabama state Senate by a 22-3 margin on May 19.

“When you invite the state into those matters of personal or religious import, it creates difficulties,” Sen. Albritton said about his bill in April. “Go back long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away. Early twentieth century, if you go back and look and try to find marriage licenses for your grandparents or great grandparents, you won’t find it. What you will find instead is where people have come in and recorded when a marriage has occurred.”

The bill would replace all references to marriages “licenses” in state law with “contracts.” The legislation would not invalidate any marriage licenses issued prior to the bill being passed.

Piob I forgot what thread it was where we had a conversation about airport security , but I just wanted to let you know it happened again. As I walked up to the line, a TSA agent said I was "randomly" selected for the alternate screening which means no show removal, no X-ray Imaging, no laptop out of bag, just a metal detector and that's it.

Also, I just approached a cop to ask about street parking and he smiled at me and said it's free, and he did not shoot me as I walked away despite my darker complexion and bearded appearance.

I flew this weekend. On the way out of ATL, the busiest airport in the world on a weekend they were saying might end up being a top one for air travel this year, I went through the "alternate" procedure, too, but what's interesting is that there were two lines where everyone was doing it. That was just how those lines were screening passengers.

Coming home, out of DCA, they put everyone through the naked radiation machines. Fuck that. I told them "I'm not doing that," a statement for which I was punished with a ridiculous wait and a free public groping.

Curiously, there were zero 9/11s on either day.

I'm vaguely thinking of flying into Detroit Metro next year to head over to Windsor. I imagine the trip through their security to get back home will be hell for a blonde haired, blue eyed devil like myself. Maybe I should get Sharon McPhail to escort me through with her gun?

WASHINGTON — James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, denied Thursday that he lied to Congress about government surveillance last year, and he rolled out a new national intelligence strategy that includes principles of ethics for intelligence officers.

‘‘It has been very disappointing to have my integrity questioned because of a mistake,’’ Clapper told government officials and contractors at a Washington intelligence summit.

He clearly forgot about a massive project his agency was working on. If the President can learn about these things from the news, why not top officials in an organization?

I just saw a clip of Michelle Obama giving a graduation speech at Tuskegee. She told the students, "You've got to vote, you've got to vote, vote, vote." I chuckled and thought that was a very appropriate comment for someone raised in the Chicago political machinery to say.

I would put this in the happy thread but the content is definitely CE. From a current DU thread at: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10026733226

Here's the OP:
Quote:
What needs to happen to heal DU's unnecessary "social issues vs. economic issues" divide?


I'm pretty sure almost all of us actually agree that social and economic issues are equally important, and that, whatever things we may have said to each other, we're all on the good side on both sets of issues.

How do we put to rest this notion that there's some sort of competition between the need to fight racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia, ethnic/religious bigotry, ableism, and other group oppression issues, on the one hand, and the need to fight corporate control of life?

How does the distrust get healed and the shouting match get brought to an end?

We need dialog...and I don't know how to create it.

This is meant to be a healing/unity thread...having started it, I'm not going to post in it any more, so please don't direct your responses to me as an individual, but to the greater need to put this dispute to rest and bring us all together on the basic spectrum of issues...whichever candidate we might support, whichever priorities each of us might have, whatever particular life and group experiences each of us have lived.

Let those who can teach do so.

And the answer?

White people, often men, need to start listening harder

Assuming that the remedies to income inequality will "trickle-down" from the solutions that would help white people is not historically accurate.
