Rush Limbaugh’s Hatred of Women

Via: In a 1993 television broadcast, Limbaugh put on screen a picture of Socks the White House cat. He asked, “Did you know there’s a White House dog?” He then put up a picture of 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton. Limbaugh said in 1994 that first lady Hillary Clinton had a “testicle lockbox” at the White House and represented “the worst characteristics of women, totally controlling, not soft and cuddly, not sympathetic, not patient.

The Trayvon Martin Murder Wasn’t the Worst Crime Here

The shooting was bad enough. Yet somehow the police have managed to turn a senseless, tragic murder into a far worse crime: They’ve declared open-season to SLAUGHTER black children. Are we surprised? No. While it’s true police have a tough job, not all police do that job for the right reasons. Some are thugs, bullies, cowards, veritable criminals w/badges. We are NEVER safe, civil rights are NEVER secure, we are ALWAYS one stupid crime, one stupid law, one stupid police officer away from being at SQUARE-ONE. Arrest the SOB that murdered this harmless child.

My Appeal to President Obama Re NDAA

VETO the NDAA, until it definitively & expressly PROHIBITS treatment of US citizens as “enemy combatants”, unless they are proved as such in OPEN COURT. Also, the NDAA must expressly reaffirm our Constitution as the FINAL WORD on these matters, until & unless a court says a person may be treated otherwise, and then ONLY on a case-by-case basis. There is NOTHING worse than taking away our citizen’s RIGHTS, without due process, in the name of “security”. If you do THAT, America as we know it ceases to exist, and then what is really left worth securing? Thank you. PS, CLOSE GITMO.

5 people. Lost our home in 2008; we live in the poorest part of a poor city. We Are the 99 Percent.

5 people. Lost our home in 2008; now we live in the poorest part of a poor city across the country. 1 life threatening disease. 1 naturalized citizen with a part-time minimum wage job. 2 high school students who struggled with developmental and learning disabilities. 1 first generation college grad with 20k in debt, 2 part time minimum wage jobs, and depression/anxiety that has the power to take over my life without medication. Some weeks we can’t afford groceries. We certainly can’t afford the gas to travel anywhere but work and back. WE ARE THE 99% Via
