Donald Trump Tells Drought Stricken California "There Is No Drought"

He claims the drought is being manufactured by state officials who are actually diverting water in to the ocean to protect a three inch long fish.  Of course he has no evidence to back up this claim.   It just saddens me that there are people who actually take this "man" seriously and are actually going to vote for him.  Telling Californians there is not drought would be like gong in to a cancer hospital and telling cancer patents that there is no cancer.   If he actually has the chance to carry out his plan that will make the situation much worse.  Although Trump would never admit that if it did happen.  He would just deny it is happening.  He says he is drawing big crowds.  Drawing big crowds of racist, homophobic, science denying morons is not something I would be advertising.  Hitler drew big crowds too.  Just because someone draws "big crowds" does not mean it is a good thing.

Islamophobic Jackass kicked out of Ice Cream Parlor After Making Racist Comments.

I'm guessing he is probably a Trump supporter.  Love how the Ice Cream Parlor employees handled this.  From the article it sounds like this "man" was causing problems at at least one other store.  How miserable this mans life must be if he has to be so hateful.

These Bathroom Laws Need to be Flushed Down the Toilet

Posted by Zman

As we all know by now North Carolina has a law that requires people to use the bathroom that corresponds to their biological sex.  In other words if they were born a male they have to use the Men's Room or if they were born female they have to use the Women's room.  The law puts trans gender people in the position of not being able to use the bathroom of th sex they are now.  This missguided laws claim they are "protecting children from those who change their sex to prey on children and women in public restrooms.  These laws assume that people who are transgender are perverts who prey on children and women which is in fact not true and a baseless fear being spread by ignorant people who probably have taken a piss next to a transgender person more times then they realize.  Look,   Let me put this simply so even an idiot can understand.  People who are transgender are born one sex but feel they should have been born the opposite.   They are not transgender because they want to go in to the opposite sex restroom and molest your daughter.  You are probably more likely to get gang raped by a heard of moose while walking backwards on your hands blindfolded  in Arizona then you are to be assaulted by a transgender person in the bathroom at Sears.  Now the Department of Justice is suing North Carolina and they of course being idiots, are suing back claiming they want toe courts to rule that HB2 does not discriminate.  They must have a pretty weird view of discrimination.  "On Monday A North Carolina school system adopted a policy allowing high school students  carry pepper spray this fall, a policy one board member said may be useful for students who encounter transgender classmates in the bathroom.
The Salisbury Post reports (http://bit.ly/1TzmUGY) the policy was adopted by the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education during a work session on Monday.
Board member Chuck Hughes said using the sprays was purely defensive, and he referenced the North Carolina law that limits LGBT rights, saying such sprays could help female students if they go to the bathroom and don't know who's coming in after them."  Full article here.  Now I'm all for students carrying pepper spray for defense.  but it should not be used to attack someone for simply using the bathroom.   It is both sad and scary that people like Chuck Hughes is allowed to make educations decisions about children.  Honestly with his attitude, I wouldn't hire him to pick up my dog poop.

If you are the kind of person that is that obsessed over who is taking a dump in the stall next to you, then maybe you're the pervert.  Most people don't care.  Most rational people go in the bathroom, do what ever they need to do and get out.  Not a big deal.   We don't care what the person next to us is using to go to the bathroom.   If these people who love to spread fear would actually put their efforts in to actually doing good, just imagine the progress we could make if these fearful hateful sad excused for human beings would just change their ways and stop using hate and ignorance to discriminate against others.

WATCH: Woman Confronts Man for Using Food Stamps at Walmart

So many people who use food stamps are hard working individuals who just want to support their families. This man just wants to buy food and necessities for his child and the fact that this woman has the nerve to cause a scene over something that is quite literally none of her business is disgusting. She doesn't know this man's story and it's not her place or any of our places to judge. I hope one day this man doesn't have to use food stamps as a means to provide for his family and this woman pulls her head out of her ass.   This woman is an ignorant, judgmental, nosy piece of trash.

Ignorant Parents at School Board Meeting Who Don't Want to Hear the Facts About Transgender Teens Break in to Song to Drown Out The Facts.

I Guess when you have no argument against the facts, the go to response by ignorant, fear mongering morons is to break in to a religious song.  Very happy this one mother stood up to defend the rights of Trans Gender students and shame on the ignorant "parents" for sticking their fingers in their ears and going lalalalalalala 

From the article.

"One lone parent stood up to the hundreds in the room asking why trans students don't deserve the same rights as all the other students. Melanie Moore "argued that transgender people should not be lumped into the same category as pedophiles, rapists or other criminals. She also tried to explain how transgender students are born one sex, but feel as though they should have been born the opposite gender – though she was shouted over by many members of the crowd," The State reports.
“Everybody is concerned about their children. The transgender parents are concerned about their children too, so I thought it was important that somebody stand up for them,” Moore said.
After more than six minutes of defending her position, Moore was silenced when parents broke out into song to drown her out. "Jesus love me, yes I know, for the Bible tells me so," a popular Christian hymn, they chose to end discussion."

How these "Bathroom Laws" Affect Children with Special Needs

One of the many issues with these so called "bathroom Laws" is they discriminate against children with special needs.  These laws do contain an exemption if you are a care giver but they do not allow lets say a parent with a special needs child over seven years old to accompany an opposite sex parent in to the bathroom if the parent has to use the restroom but the child cannot be left unsupervised and wait outside.  I was thinking about this the other night at work as I saw a parent wheel a child in a wheel chair in the the restroom for this very reason.  I had to use the restroom myself at work and noticed this was what was going on and wondered how this would work in these states that have "bathroom laws" turns out my fear was justified.  Here is an article that talks about this very thing.

A high school senior was pulled from class and forced to kneel in front of administrators for ‘dress code violation’

This is clearly a human rights violation.  The Principle should be fired for this outrage,  I'm guessing no male students have to do this for a "dress code violation"   Also it is not a girls job to keep boys from being distracted.  This culture of shaming girls and young women for what they wear needs to stop and the school administrators who do it should never be allowed to work around kids ever again.

From the article.

"There is absolutely nothing wrong with what she is wearing. Everything but her arms and neck are completely covered. Black tights, black boots, her butt isn’t hanging out. What exactly is the problem here? Durbin’s own mother, Alexandria, said in an interview with WBKO, “I’ve had people saying that’s something they would wear to church. If it’s appropriate for you to go to church in, why isn’t it appropriate for you to go to school in.” Good question.
Never mind the fact that a real distraction is Durbin being forced to miss most of her education that day because someone thought her dress might have been a little too shorteven though it wasn’t. It is not a teenage girl’s job to hide her body in shame because it may pull the eyes of a co-ed away from the blackboard and it’s absolutely disgraceful that we should put that kind of pressure onto young women."

Save Net Radio! We Need Your Help To Petition Congress. 100,000+ Stations Will Perish!

The way this was done was pretty shady and an obvious attempt to shut down the competition by the big boys like I Heart Media.  It is also quite fishy that this was done without the knowledge  Many stations have been forced to shut down including Thunderstruck 2014.  That is why both Candidradio Live and The Morning Rush are only on Sky 106 Radio.  The new fees small webcasters are being forced to pay are just insane.  The linked article below gives a complete description of this nonsense and also includeds a link to the petition.

Merry Christmas Red Tape. (Christmas Humor)

No idea who wrote this but a Facebook friend shared it and I had to share it with you.

Please be advised that all employees planning to dash through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh, going over the fields and laughing all the way are required to undergo a Risk Assessment addressing the safety of open sleighs.
The assessment must also consider whether it is appropriate to use only one horse for such a venture, particularly where there are multiple passengers. Please note that permission must also be obtained in writing from landowners before their fields may be entered. To avoid offending those not participating in celebrations, we request that laughter is moderate only and not loud enough to be considered a noise nuisance.
Benches, stools and orthopaedic chairs are now available for collection by any shepherds planning or required to watch their flocks at night. While provision has also been made for remote monitoring of flocks by CCTV cameras from a centrally heated shepherd observation hut, all facility users are reminded that an emergency response plan must be submitted to account for known risks to the flocks. The angel of the Lord is additionally reminded that prior to shining his/her glory all around s/he must confirm that all shepherds are wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment to account for the harmful effects of UVA, UVB and the overwhelming effects of Glory
Following last year’s well publicised case, everyone is advised that legislation prohibits any comment with regard to the redness of any part of Mr. R. Reindeer. Further to this, exclusion of Mr. R Reindeer from reindeer games will be considered discriminatory and disciplinary action will be taken against those found guilty of this offence.
While it is acknowledged that gift-bearing is commonly practised in various parts of the world, particularly the Orient, everyone is reminded that the bearing of gifts is subject to Hospitality Guidelines and all gifts must be registered. This applies regardless of the individual, even royal personages. It is particularly noted that direct gifts of currency or gold are specifically precluded under provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Further, caution is advised regarding other common gifts, such as aromatic resins that may initiate allergic reactions.
Finally, for those involved in the recent case of the infant found tucked up in a manger without any crib for a bed, Social Services have been advised and will be arriving shortly.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas – be safe out there.......

Let's Stop Giving Shit to Women Who Don't Want Kids. (shared article with my own comments)

Great article.  I especially love it as it was written by a woman who has kids.   People need to stop sticking their noses in to other peoples reproductive lives.  It is none of your business if someone else has kids or not.  Besides, why is it such a big concern of yours if your friend, co worker, or family member has kids.  Why are you that interested in someone elses reproductive life.  That sounds rather creepy when you think about it.   It is their business, not yours.

The New Starbucks Cup is not a War on Christmas

Posted by Zman

Every year it seems the war on Christmas crowd finds a new target.  This year as we all know it is Starbucks.  This year as we all know by now Starbucks changed the design of their cup from winter scenes and snowflakes to a red and green cup.  Not a big deal.  Well to most of us anyway.  But to some , it was as if the world has come to an end.   The people with the persecution complexes had to get all butt hurt over the new cup design and claim Starbucks was raging a "war on Christmas" because they changed the design of a coffee cup and are trying to take the "Christ out of Christmas" .  These people I guess are not smart enough to realize that first, red and green are in fact Christmas colors. And second, winter scenes and Reindeer are not Christian symbols.  Some of these nuts are even calling for a boycott of Starbucks.  What makes this even sillier is that Starbucks has plenty of other Christmas themed products.  Not to mention that Starbucks is a private company.  They are not required to do anything to recognize any holiday.  If you don't like the fact that Starbucks has red and green coffee cups here is what you do.  I'll make this very simple for those of you who have a hard time with this kind of thing.  BUY YOUR COFFEE SOMEPLACE ELSE.  See what a simple solution that is?   And you don't have to make yourself look like a complete idiot for getting all butt hurt over the color of a coffee cup.

There is no war on Christmas.  All the TV specials, Christmas displays in stores, the fact that most stores have already begun playing Christmas Music.  The whole idea that there is somehow a war on Christmas is just laughable.   If you are bothered by things like the color of a cup or how someone greets you during the holiday season, I suggest you take a look at your priorities because they are pretty messed up and  you are being a complete idiot.   Not everyone is going to conform to your way of thinking.   Suck it up buttercup and quit complaining about the color of a cup when there are far more important things to be worrying about.  Put some of that energy in to you know helping the homelesss, feeding the hungry, taking care of the sick.  You know things Christ might do?  Funny how those of us who don't believe in a god understand what the stores of Christ taught better than some Christians.   Forget putting the Christ back in Christmas.  How about putting Christ back in  Christianity and stop complaining about such mundane stuff.

Satanic Temple Answers Coaches Prayer

Another religious nut wants to use school time to pray.  Well, what these nuts keep forgetting is that if they are allowed to pray to their imaginary friend during a school activity or on school time then all beliefs must be allowed.  I love when things like this backfire on these nuts.

Sean Hannity Falls for Hoax News Story and Defends Himself by Attacking The Site that Called Him Out Making Him Look Like An Even Bigger Fool

Sean Hannity tried to defend himself after falling for a fake news story by attacking the site that called him out and making himself look even more foolish.  I guess when you call a right wing nut out for falling for a fake news story they react by calling you a "liberal"  and claim they are being attacked because they just cannot admit when they are wrong and to top if off you then try and claim you never said what you said even though there is video of you saying it on your own show and a written transcript to go along with the video proving you said it.  Wow, When these right wing nuts  dig themselves in to a hole they dig a big one.   Which makes them look even more childish.

Ten Myths About The Ten Commandments

From the article,

"Legislators in Arkansas believe that you can’t fathom America without first understanding the Ten Commandments.
“In order that they may understand and appreciate the basic principles of the American system of government, the people of the United States of America and of the State of Arkansas need to identify the Ten Commandments, one of many sources, as influencing the development of what has become modern law,” intoned legislation authorizing placement of a Ten Commandments monument at the state Capitol in Little Rock.
There is one problem, though: No evidence exists that the Ten Commandments, a code of religious behavior found in the Old Testament of the Bible, in any way influenced the development of the American system of government.
The belief that the Decalogue is the font of all American law and the basis of our government is treasured by many Religious Right activists. But that doesn’t mean it’s accurate. As proposals to display the Ten Commandments on government property spread, it’s important to understand what’s really going on here: Powerful sectarian lobbies are looking for a way to create a symbolic merger between church and state by persuading government bodies to display a code that largely regulates religious behavior.
With that thought in mind, here are 10 myths about the Ten Commandments:
1.) The Founding Fathers relied on the Ten Commandments when creating the American government.
The Founding Fathers rarely, if ever, cited the Ten Commandments during the creation of the American government.
This question of the founders’ relationship to the Ten Commandments was answered definitively in 2003 when 41 professors and legal historians weighed in on a lawsuit challenging Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore’s display of the Ten Commandments in the state Judicial Building in Montgomery. The scholars, brought together by Steven K. Green, former legal director at Americans United and now a law professor at Willamette University College of Law in Salem, Ore., filed a friend-of-the-court brief mustering ample historical evidence to debunk claims by Moore’s attorneys that the judge had the right to display the Ten Commandments because they are the foundation of American law.
Nothing in the nation’s legal history supports Moore’s view, the legal scholars and historians said, asserting in part, “Aside from a failed attempt in the seventeenth century to establish a biblically based legal system in the Puritan colonies, American law is generally viewed as having secular origins.”
The brief noted that “various documents and texts” figured in the development of American law, among them English common and statutory law, Roman law, the civil law of continental Europe and private international law.
American law, they pointed out, was also influenced by the writings of William Blackstone, John Locke, Adam Smith and others as well as the Magna Carta, the Federalist Papers and other sources.
“Each of these documents had a far greater influence on America’s laws than the Ten Commandments,” asserted the brief. “Indeed, the legal and historical record does not include significant and meaningful references to the Ten Commandments, the Pentateuch or to biblical law generally…as can best be determined, no delegate ever mentioned the Ten Commandments or the Bible.”
Concluded the brief, “While the Ten Commandments have influenced some of our notions of right and wrong, a wide variety of other documents have played a more dominant and central role in the development of American law. No respected scholar of legal or constitutional history would assert that the Ten Commandments have played a dominant or major role, or even a significant role, in the development of American law as a whole. To insist on a closer relationship or to claim the Ten Command­ments has a special place in the development of American law lacks historical support.”
