The corporate bullshit coming from the toxic GMO Co is pathetic. I won't be a part of their

campaign to take over the world. Damn them to hell.

It's a Dick Cheney move to whine about the President finally getting some golf in on his

actual much earned vacation, she. Thank you for your OP.. I've seen rumblings about this and it pisses me off as it does Allen Clifton the writer of this piece.. who is from the Dallas Ft Worth area in Texas.

Cheney: President Obama Would 'Rather Be On The Golf Course' Than The Situation Room


Five myths about presidential vacations

3. George W. Bush took more vacation days than any other president.

During his eight-year presidency, Bush did take 879 days of vacation, including 77 trips to his Texas ranch. So far, Obama has taken about 150 days off. But our founders were away even more.

And, Dick head knows this..


Have to mention the a$$holes in Congress who did nothing all year and are now on a 5 week vaca with pay while they won't raise the Minimum Wage for actual hard working Americans.

And, glad they decided it was wrong to use that derogatory word in their headline even though it was exposing the racism in America against President Obama... from your link..

"The writer James Lincoln Collier penned an opinion piece for the July edition of WestView News, which was entitled: “The N***** in the White House”.

Despite the use of the racist slur, the column was actually a pro-Obama piece that suggested far-right opposition to the President was influenced by the colour of his skin.

Collier wrote: “These far right voters hate Obama because he is black. The simple truth is that there is still in America an irreducible measure of racism.”

Bottom Line.. from your 1st link..

"The last thing any American should want is a president who’s so stressed out that they’re on the verge of a psychotic breakdown. And the media, both the left and the right, really needs to stop this nonsense of shaming presidents every time they might dare take some kind of a vacation or – gasp – even play a round golf. -

My President who's hard at work even though he takes some time away to play golf and clear his head.

Thank you for this, UJ.. During all the corporatemediawhore propaganda before

the net and Twitter became so prevalent as a way to get real news out.. I keep lobbying for Occupy to Occupy the Media and before that for the masses to protest the media like we did bush's war on Iraq. My fervent wish was for the m$m to go the way of the dinosaurs..

David Gregory's MTP did that but NBC's bright idea is to bring in Chuckie Todd..

But, we got this on Monday!

#ItsBiggerThanYou: Atlanta protesters challenge CNN’s Michael Brown reporting

Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the CNN center in Atlanta on Monday to march in memory of unarmed Missouri teenager Michael Brown who was gunned down by a police officer, many in protest of CNN’s controversial coverage of the incident.

Demonstrators who had been urged to attend dressed in their “Sunday’s best” marched under the slogan: “How good must we look to be considered innocent?” and used the #ItsBiggerThanYou hashtag.

The protest was staged in response to CNN’s Ferguson protests coverage, which had a strong emphasis on past actions by Brown which may have incriminated him. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, as many as 1,000 protesters marched.

More to the story..

"Participants and observers also took to Twitter to denounce CNN’s lack of coverage of a protest directly outside its offices."

Wow, thanks for the revelations.. I hadn't heard anything about racism per se in Russia but

I saw that board that was lit up on the President's birthday with the Russians portraying him eating a banana or some such idiot drivel. that's why I called him a racist as well as homophobic in my previous post. So it goes much freaking deeper than that..

"Nearly 60% of black and African people living in Russia's capital Moscow have been physically assaulted in racially motivated attacks, says a new study.
Africans working or studying in the city live in constant fear of attack, according to the report by the Moscow Protestant Chaplaincy.
A quarter of 200 people surveyed said they had been assaulted more than once. Some 80% had been verbally abused.
But the number of assaults was down from the MPC's last survey in 2002.
The report's clear conclusion was that Africans living in Russia exist in a state of virtual siege, says the BBC's Rupert Wingfield Hayes in Moscow."

So Russia isn't as pure as the putinistas would have us believe.. and always conveniently leaving out how dangerous it is to be Gay in Russia.. those poor people living under the fear of putin's homophobic wrath. Or a journalist who disagrees with his dictorial policies.. and under his thumb on the internet.

Freakin' Perfect, Jamaal!

I saw that.. I read the article when I spotted it reading your link to the root.

That was something! Poor sweet thing. So that right there says a lot about how he would react to Darren Wilson's approach to him and Dorian Johnson.

Wtf was Darren Wilson on?! For cripes sake.. they were just walking in the street on their way to Dorian's house. I get so angry and sad at this.. I can only imagine how those close to Michael Brown must feel.

Glad you posted it as an OP, Uncle Joe~Peace to you

Thank you for this perspective from an officer and a Black woman, Uncle Joe..

Officer Demetria L. Lucas states the FPD said Michael Brown got in the car.. but, the witnesses are saying the complete opposite. IOW.. Mike Brown did Not have a death wish.

They should have traces of Michael Brown's DNA in Wilson's car if he got in. but, the bottom line for me is I do not trust the FPD. They have given me no reason to and every reason not to.

The stories from team Wilson are so completely different from 5 eyewitnesses and seemingly from the autopsies so far.

She seems to be more on the side of Eyewitness accounts..

.What They Saw: 5 Eyewitnesses to the Michael Brown Shooting

Also from the root..

My big question is why do the Police think they have to lie about anything? Why isn't there a Vid of this? Don't they have dashboard cams?

So mind boggling fubared(I hope not) Michael Brown
