Black neighbors to picket woman's Confederate flag

By BRUCE SMITH, Associated Press Writer Bruce Smith, Fri Oct 15, 1:19 pm ET

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. – Annie Chambers Caddell, whose ancestors fought in the Civil War, insists the Confederate flag flying over her home is an important reminder of her heritage. But for her neigbors in this tree-shrouded, historically black neighborhood, it's an unpleasant reminder of a by-gone era they'd rather not see every time they pass by her house.

Fuck you Annie Chambers.
I have a friend who's father was in the German Army. What would the reaction be if he flew a Nazi flag in a Jewish neighborhood as a "reminder of [his] heritage?"
What a dumb fucking cracker ass moron.

NEW YORK – Four New York Police Department officers are facing internal charges based on the highly publicized accusations by a fellow officer that they manipulated crime statistics, an NYPD official said Friday.

The officers include the former commanding officer of the 81st Precinct in Brooklyn, Deputy Inspector Steven Mauriello.

WHAT?!?! Dishonest cops? No way. Who would suspect such a thing.

Right to hunt, fish on ballot in four states
By Ed Stoddard and Tim Gaynor Ed Stoddard And Tim Gaynor – Thu Oct 14, 2:02 pm ET

DALLAS/PHOENIX (Reuters) – Worried that their pastime may get waylaid by a growing animal welfare movement, U.S. hunters and anglers in some states are seeking constitutional safeguards.

When voters in Arizona, Arkansas, South Carolina and Tennessee go to the polls to cast their ballots in the congressional elections on Nov 2, they will also be asked if they support making hunting and fishing constitutional rights. . .

"They start with cats and dogs and the next thing you know, someone says it's inhumane to shoot a deer. It's like buying an insurance policy," he told Reuters in a phone interview.

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 10 states guarantee the right to hunt and fish in their constitutions. Vermont's provisions go back to 1777 but the rest have all been put in place since 1996.

The current measures are not seen making a big difference in any House or Senate race.

But they are another lifestyle clash in America's many culture wars, which often seem to pit the rural and conservative "heartland" against urban liberals.

Now here's some dumb ass shit. This fucking state legislators who sponsor horse shit like this ought to be tied and bound and forced to eat week old road kill for wasting any state's tax dollars on an initiative like this bullshit.
Fact: I've been alive in this country for over half a century which is over 1/5 of the life of this nation. Not once, not one single time have my rights as a gun owner or my rights as an avid outdoorsman been compromised. I grew up hunting and fishing. I still hunt and fish. I've never heard a single legislator suggest that my hunting and fishing be curtailed. That doesn't mean that some fringe whako somewhere hasn't suggested it, but it certainly never gained the slightest bit of traction.
Will you numb skulled bubbas out there just relax and quit worrying about your precious right to bear arms and hunt and fish. It aint going anywhere. At any point when it is threatened I'll join you, but till then, you're a bunch of reactionary, pawns being led around like ignorant sheep. . . I take that back, I have a sheep and it's much smarter than you dumb fuck backwoods morons or you dumb fuck bright-lighters who go out in the woods and fields once a year just so you can prove what a man you are.

But of all the dunb shit cracker assed insanity in Amurkkka today, this has got to be one of the grandest and no surprise it's perpetrated by the queen of the TeaBaggers. . .

O'Donnell questions separation of church, state
By BEN EVANS, Associated Press Writer
WILMINGTON, Del. – Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell of Delaware on Tuesday questioned whether the U.S. Constitution calls for a separation of church and state, appearing to disagree or not know that the First Amendment bars the government from establishing religion.
The exchange came in a debate before an audience of legal scholars and law students at Widener University Law School, as O'Donnell criticized Democratic nominee Chris Coons' position that teaching creationism in public school would violate the First Amendment by promoting religious doctrine.
Coons said private and parochial schools are free to teach creationism but that "religious doctrine doesn't belong in our public schools."
"Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?" O'Donnell asked him.
When Coons responded that the First Amendment bars Congress from making laws respecting the establishment of religion, O'Donnell asked: "You're telling me that's in the First Amendment?"

I mean, come on. I might expect some ignorant bubba teabagging bozo from some hick midwestern town or Appalachian holler to come up with that shit, but a republican senate candidate? This right wing neo-fascist is dumber than a sled track.

So all you right wing tea partiers: is the answer to your artificially induced anger to elect a bunch of ignorant morons who don't understand the absolute minimum basics of the Constitution of the United States? My suspicion is that to most of these tea baggers, the Constitution of the United States just isn't all that important.

Sagaciously yours. . .
