    Obama Shouldn't Go To Dallas Funeral

    Gee, a group ginned up about being slaughtered for their skin color...

    That does not represent BLM. That is an example of being duped by the Fox News Liars. They have a long history of white-splaining African-Americans to other white panelists, solely for appeasing an elderly audience. Average age of a Fox News Liars viewer is now 67. That is the AVERAGE.

  • If, as the GOP contends, "All Lives Matter", why do we have homeless, hungry children, veterans homelessness, widespread drug addiction, and no universal health care.

    BLM is doing it's job. Making whites uneasy and fearful of confronting their genetic racism.

    Time to educate the Droolers:

    BLM is not a "terrorist group" as whitesplained by the Fox News Liars. BLM seeks only to have racist cops stop acting on their racism in dealing with African-Americans and other people of color. They want to be treated in the same manner as white people. The number of racist people that are also cops is widespread and pernicious. Only those racists can use deadly force to affirm their racial superiority. Racist cops have a license to kill., and have little or no accountability. Not much has changed, except the cell phone and videos.

    It is extremely appropriate that the President attend the memorial.

    What the president has done is to bring racism back to being sanctioned by the GOP. It has always been simmering just below appropriate behavior. PC is the code word for keeping ones racist thoughts to oneself.

  • A new study confirms what leading climate scientists have warned about for many years now: Only very aggressive climate action can save the world’s coastal cities from inundation by century’s end.
    We still could limit sea level rise to two feet this century if we keep total warming below 2°C, according to analysis using these new findings. Otherwise, we should be anticipating five to six feet of sea level rise by 2100 — which would generate hundreds of millions of refugees. That isn’t even the worst-case scenario.
    This latest research from the journal Nature underscores that what the nation and the world do in the next decade or two will determine whether or not cities like Miami, Boston, New York, or New Orleans have any plausible chance to survive by 2100.
    The study, “Contribution of Antarctica to past and future sea-level rise,” analyzes “new processes in the 3-dimensional ice sheet model.” It makes use of mechanisms involving the impact of warming oceans on the unstable Antarctic ice sheet “that were previously known but never incorporated in a model like this before.” It then tests its findings “against past episodes of high sea-levels and ice retreat.”
    The researchers dramatically raise the likely contribution to sea level rise we will see from the disintegration of the Antarctic ice sheet, which, as we reported two years ago, has already begun. The “authors find that Antarctica has the potential to contribute greater than 1 meter (39 inches) of sea-level rise by the year 2100, and greater than 15 meters (49 feet) by 2500 if atmospheric emissions continue unabated.”

    I listened to several police chiefs, and based on the number of interactions between police and civilians every day, I let my bias take over. It is much more like 2-3%

  • We all know that many white people are racist. We also know that some of those whites are also police officers. The very serious problem is that those white racist cops can act on their racism without oversight, investigation, or accountability. Those racist cops that make up police officers across the nation are an unknown quantity. It looks as if it is far closer to 50% than to 2 or 3 %. See below:

    Two police officers in Memphis, Tennessee, have been suspended with pay, and one police officer in Nashville has been suspended for inappropriate social media posts in the wake of the Dallas police shootings. The unidentified officers in Memphis were suspended for sharing a photograph in which a white person points a gun at an emoji of a black boy running. The scene appears to be in hallway leading to the front door of a home. The Nashville police officer, eight-year veteran Anthony Venable, was decommissioned for posting “Yeah. I would have done 5.” Venable’s post was interpreted as referring to the shooting of Philando Castile on July 5 in Falcon Height, Minnesota. Castile was shot four times when he reached for his wallet after being pulled over in a traffic stop. “The police department is treating this matter very seriously and took immediate action, regardless of what he claims the context to have been,” [Nashville] Metro Police Chief Steve Anderson said.

    The Fox News Liars commander-in-chief, Roger Ailes is being sued for sexual harassment by over a dozen women. He said that a sexual relationship with Gretchen Carlson would assure her of a new contract. She walked.

    The Question for the Trumpanzees: Where did Megyn Kelly's lips touch Roger Alies body parts in order to secure a top show in prime time on the Fox News Liars?

    Next time you are watching and drooling over Kelly's shot skirt and high heels (required dress code) ask yourself where her lips and tongue have been on Roger's obese sweaty, triple chinned body.

    Der Drumpf is having "some difficulty" is securing speakers at his convention. According to presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight will be a key figure at the upcoming Republican National Convention ― where he will presumably hurl Clint Eastwood’s 2012 convention chair at an underperforming point guard, or something. Normally, it would be strange to hear a long-retired college coach receiving top billing at a convention, but what’s Donald to do? He doesn’t really have a lot of friends in the GOP, and he’s not making many new ones.

    This election will be FUN. Nate Silver has already called for Hillary.

    No. We were the industrial giant along with western Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries. We added nearly all of the greenhouse gases to the upper atmosphere for the last 125 years. China and India, while huge polluters, are very late comers. They are taking steps, but we must lead the way.

    Don't forget drooler, it was Senator Al Gore that cast the winning vote to fund the research that Tim Berners-Lee was doing to fund the internet. This "internet thing" was seen by Republicans as a huge waste of time and money. And when asked about the notion of who invented, it was indeed Sentor Al Gore that cast the vote that allowed the research team to develop the internet. In many ways, providing that funding based on the vote of Al Gore, gives him credit for "inventing the internet".

  • The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports that June was the warmest month ever in 122 years of record keeping. And around the world, we’ve had heat-breaking records for 13 straight months.

    The June temperature for the contiguous U.S. was 71.8°F, or 3.3°F above the 20th century average, surpassing the previous record of 71.6°F set in 1933. The year-to-date (January-June) temperature was 50.8°F, 3.2°F above the 20th century average, making it the third warmest on record. [...]

    During the first half of 2016, the U.S. experienced eight weather and climate disasters that have each met or exceeded $1 billion in damages, resulting in the loss of 30 lives and costing more than $13.1 billion in damages.

  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy created far more new jobs in June than in any of the previous months of 2016, vastly exceeding the expectations of a consensus of experts surveyed earlier this week by Bloomberg and reversing a three-month downward trend.

    The bureau reported Friday that the economy expanded by 287,000 new jobs in June, the best showing since October last year. Of the total, 265,000 were in the private sector, 22,000 in government. June marks the 69th consecutive month of overall job growth, and the 75th month of private-sector job growth. Meanwhile, the bureau revised May’s growth in new jobs from 38,000 to 11,000, and April’s growth from 123,000 to 144,000.

    The official unemployment rate, the headline rate, which the bureau calculates from a different survey and labels U3, rose to 4.9 percent. The jobless rate isn’t the same for everyone: Adult men: 4.5 percent; Adult women: 4.5 percent ; Whites: 4.4 percent; Blacks: 8.6 percent; Asians: 3.5 percent; Hispanics: 5.8 percent; American Indians: (not counted monthly); Teenagers: 16 percent; (Among teenagers of color, the unemployment rate is typically much higher.)

    Besides U3, the bureau also estimates both unemployment and underemployment in a category it calls U6 In this category are people with no job, part-time workers who want a full-time job but can't find one, and some of the nation’s "discouraged" workers. In June, U6 fell to 9.6 percent.

    The civilian workforce in June climbed by 414,000 after having fallen by 458,000 in May and risen by 362,000 in April. The employment-population ratio fell to 59.6 percent, and the labor force participation rate rose to 62.7 percent.

    With June’s total, average wages have risen by 2.6 percent in 2016.

    An African American male, exercising his 2nd Amendment rights was gunned down and murdered by a St. Paul Minnesota cop. When he told the cop he had a gun, the cop murdered him. Where is the NRA outrage at a cop that murdered a man that had a concealed weapon permit, and was reaching for his wallet.
