Melissa Harris-Perry: ‘Obamacare’ a ‘Derogatory Term’ Conceived by ‘Wealthy White Men’
by Noah Rothman | 9:42 am, December 9th, 2013
I can just imagine the comments at Mediaite. The teabaggers are probably foaming at the mouth so I refuse to read them.
You warned me. Now, I know.
They are crazy rabid racists.
And knowing’s half the battle!
You know I had to do it lol.
I was an 80s kid, so you know pop culture has ruined me for life. LOL
I watched all this stuff with my kids, I was barely legal myself when I got married lol.
Maya the Bee David the Gnome and Simon on Nickelodeon was some of my daughters favorites. And of course my son loved Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles, GI-Joe and He-Man and many more.
Thundarr the Barbarian
Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends
The Incredible Hulk
Just about any toon geared towards boys, I watched. And that’s just the 80s. There were some from the 70s I remember watching.
Weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings freakin’ ROCKED if you were a kid back then.
I loved Ducktales, Thundercats and Robotech was my shit!
Loving all my Marvel comic books are all movies. I’m waiting for SECRET WARS!
You remembered Ice Man and Fire Star lol.
X-Men fighting the Sentinels every other week.
Wonder Twin Powers…Activate lol.
And that’s why the MSM is now trying to call ObamaCare by it’s original name, the Affordable Care Act.
Where on American tv can I watch Madiba’s homegoing?
Is C-Span going to cover it?
Need to set the DVR.
I’d like to see it to rikyrah. I’m sure the msm will cover it but I don’t want to here them yammering during the service.
Hopefully C-Span or PBS will cover it.
I don’t know but I plan to try & tap into SABC on line if I can. My SIL’s Auntie godmother will be attending & she has promised to record as much as she can. She’s not sure how good that will be because she said that thousands are already gathering. The outpouring of grief & love is huge, according to the convo I had with her over the weekend.
TOD has a link up for SABC AG.

Thanks for sharing this. It really communicates his love for his brother and a lingering sadness.
You are welcome
Did you ever see the movie Vincent and Theo? Not uplifting but a well-acted movie. Tim Roth was Vincent before he’d been in anything in the U.S.
Museum of Modern Art @MuseumModernArt46s
Should street art be protected or remain an ephemeral medium? Artists fight to protect their work and rights. http://bit.ly/IMlGdZ #NYC
I love that when black kids were doing this it was graffiti & ghetto now it’s street art.
Our kiddos are still doing it & we have had to fight the city a few times to keep some which is quite nice because it was not “approved.” We have some real strict laws against graffiti here. I have no prob with them taking out the gang tags but some of the other work is real art.
Yeah, I don’t mean the gang stuff either AG.
There are some genuinely talented kids out there that won’t get the chance to go to art school. We did have a art program with the museum for underprivileged kids. I don’t know if it’s still in existence since the lopsided head toad took office. He cut so many things that was helpful to the underprivileged.
There is some real innate talent out there. Plus, some of our budding artists are real clever at getting out a social & cultural message or two in their public works. I love it!
Good Afternoon, errbody!
Hope you’re having a good day this rainy Monday. (it’s rainy here, anyway)
Hola Barb! Is it real cold there in Atl too? It’s freezing here but no rain.
Sorry for the delay – it was chilly, not cold. I think the temp was 48 when I went to Macy’s this evening.
(I’m from the northeast & my personal thermostat is out of whack, so 48 isn’t bad to me)

Countdown to right wingers demanding PBO not speak or say something negative about communism at this service
And in -1-2-3- Impeachment!
Oh the wingers will go INSANE.
But, other pairs are interesting, too.
For ex: Ted Cruz and Raul Castro
Does Kelly REALLY want to go there?
Kelly O’Donnell @KellyO 5m
Often misunderstood.Pres George W. Bush had collegial relationship with regular WH press corps.(context for visit to press cabin)
Oh I think she wants to go there….she won’t like what happens when she GETS there, but she wants to go….so let her.
OH please! I was having a nice burrito for my lunch. Could we just stop with this BS that PBO doesn’t treat the media like some kind of Press gods.
Still amuses me after all this time the media doesn’t realize the fact that PBO isn’t into them is actually a plus for many people, even those who aren’t necessarily supporters.
Didn’t Bush kick the press off Air Force One at some point and freeze out the WH press corps when it suited him?
Otherwise someone is going to have to explain to me what collegial means.
Yes indeed, he did.
This bish here.
Well, Kelly how about Pres. Eisenhower? Here’s
what he wrote his brother, Dr. Milton Eisenhower
in 1953 re: McCarthy:
“Frankly, in a day when we see journalism
far more concerned with so-called human interest,
dramatic incidents, and bitter quarrels, than it is in
promoting constructive understanding of the day’s
problems.I have no intention whatsoever of helping
promote the publicity value of anyone who disagrees
with me — demagogue or not!”
Right. He treated you with contempt and you lapped it up. Very collegial.
New Jersey Waitress in Anti-Gay Note Case Let Go From Job
By Brynn Gingras | Monday, Dec 9, 2013 | Updated 11:37 AM EST
The New Jersey waitress whose story was questioned after she claimed she received an anti-gay note instead of a tip is now out of a job.
The Gallop Asian Bistro said Saturday that Dayna Morales will no longer be working there. On its Facebook page, the restaurant said it was a “joint decision” with Morales that she move on.
“This has been an unfortunate incident for Gallop Asian Bistro, our employees, and our customers,” the post said.
I was wondering how long she would be working there. Since it came out that the incident never happened.
So she lied.
Grifters gonna grift. I believe she has a history of scheming.

— –Ted Nugent Thinks Poor People Should Be Stripped of Their Right to Vote–
— –Because of course he does. In exchange for agreeing to close the gun show loophole (he acknowledges it exists, which is something) he thinks the poor should be disenfranchised:
National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent proposed a compromise that would trade closing the gun show loophole for
closing what he deemed “the federal voting loophole,” which allows
individuals who do not pay federal income tax to vote.
Implementing this plan would involve taking away the vote from a
large number of Americans who work but do not owe federal income taxes as well as retirees and some individuals who cannot work because of illness or disability.
In a December 4 column for conspiracy website WND, Nugent — calling himself a “prospective presidential candidate in 2016″ — framed his proposal as “a Great Compromise” and suggested that he would be willing to risk provoking the ire of gun activists (including his fellow NRA board members) in order to ensure its enactment.

Add Brazilian President to the 1 who should stay home list.
I haven’t studied her but it seems to me if she, the President of a country that very recently abolished slavery can talk greasy over the first AA President over spying that everybody knows is going on, I’m not too sure what she can add to a Mandela Tribute.
Just as I ain’t trying to hear from those who profited or perpetuated Apartheid, I’m not trying to hear from those that abuse Africans in their own countries. I know that would make for an almost empty funeral, I just ain’t here for the hypocrites.
Damn Tyren you can type fast! LOL
You think this is good, I found another speed when I seen AG (what felt like) sending me out to cut my own switch on the AM page. I had… visions of childhood lol.
STOP! You know I ♥ you! You & my son are about the same age. Forgive me for teasing & giving you a smack up side the head once in a while. It’s good for both of you & I would be way remiss in my duties as an elder if I didn’t give you one once in a while.
Someday you will thank me when you are an elder & can pass it on, lol!
I wouldn’t have you any other way. Know that.
Aw! I would not have you any other way either ♥
HILARIOUS!!! I’m with you, Tyren. I’m probably a bit older than you, but younger than AG. And I want to STAY on AG’s good side, ya hear???
ROTFLMAO! You may appreciate this. My #2 Grandson was just turning 5 when his twin brothers were born. Someone asked him at their baptism what advice he would give them.
He said: “Never get on the bad side of Granny!”
I know you’re up North but:
I heard ya.
Got it! Sorry but so many will be going with, as they say in Africa, “the mealie mouth, filled with the mush they stole from others.”
I just wanted to know what your particular objection was to La Dilma over some others. I understand & appreciate your sharing that.
She was buying into GG’s spying mess.
It turned out that it was GWB administration that spied on Brazil.
And I believe Brazil was doing some spying of its own. Matter fact, all those “outraged” nations are guilty of spying. Errbody spies on errbody.
Dawg, as much as I heart me some Brazilian womens – that one not so much.
I think she might have been plenty happy to see the back of GG but he has his ugly hooks into powers way above her head.
Baby Bro spent some time doing public health care in Brazil & he said their politics are corruption central. Dilma really doesn’t have that much power. She toes the line.
Not to say that lets her off but South American politics & power structures are a real cess pool. Have been for centuries. Just saying…
Oh I’ve known about the corruption for years AG. That’s why it seems nothing will ever be done to help the poor over there.
My mother’s heat wouldn’t come yesterday. She had portable heat til the guy could come out today and look at the furnace. It turns out that the Bebe kids next door plugged up her furnace vent outside. They charged my mother 200.00 to remove a stick from it, can you believe that shit! She said I could have done that myself lol.
She should send their parents the stick & the bill!
You know my mother is gonna say something she doesn’t let stuff go lol. In the summer they turned on her hose and it was running for hours because she was out and about. This is all because she told them to stay out of her yard stepping on her flower beds. I told my mother to sick her alderman on them.
Elder abuse! Get that on to them too. Don’t know about your community but we come down hard on that in mine!
My sister has moved in with her til she finds a new place. And they don’t want to rile her up because they’ll regret it.
I hope your mom goes to her alderman!
No heat, except portable, is no good this
time of the year!!!
She had three big ones qosine my sister has moved in with her for awhile. The heat is on now and like I told AG trust my mother will not let it go. The people that rented the house before these folks kept parking in front of her garage. She talked to them and they ignored her so she put up a no parking sign. They ignored that too so she had their cars towed lol. Don’t mess with my mama she don’t play lol.
Oh, good, good, Alma!
If I lived next door to your mom, I’d
def toe the line!! She sounds just
wonderful:)) Had their cars towed. lol
She is a spitfire for sure.
East Lansing aftermath: Fires, arrests
Updated: December 9, 2013, 2:23 PM ETAssociated Press
EAST LANSING, Mich. — East Lansing police say at least 15 people were arrested during celebrations of Michigan State’s victory over Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game.
The police department’s weekend report says 12 of the people were students and one was an alumnus. East Lansing police say there were at least 57 fires, many in a neighborhood of apartments just off the eastern edge of campus.
The Lansing State Journal posted video online showing thousands of revelers cheering loudly as a couch was tossed on a fire. The street scenes early Sunday occurred after the Spartans defeated the Buckeyes 34-24 in Indianapolis and earned a Rose Bowl bid.
Some 75 miles away in Ypsilanti, police reported two couch fires related to the game.
Nah Miranda their just kids fooling around. White kids don’t do stuff like this ya know.

18 Charged in Inquiry Into Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office
By JENNIFER MEDINA
Published: December 9, 2013
LOS ANGELES — Federal agents charged 18 current and former members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department on Monday, accusing them of excessive use of force and obstruction of justice as part of a sprawling, yearslong investigation into allegations of misconduct and abuse of inmates in county jails, federal law enforcement officials said.
Several officers, including high-ranking officials, were taken into custody. Federal officials were working with the Sheriff’s Department to see that all those charged turned themselves in.
The Los Angeles County jails have been under intense federal scrutiny for more than two years following a string of lawsuitsthat accused deputies of targeting and abusing inmates. One case brought before a grand jury focused on whether sheriff’s officials tried to hide an inmate who was working as an informer for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The county’s jail system is the largest such system in the country, and many advocates say that it is the most troubled.
Where is Boyce Watkins who always claims he’s such a critic of the injustice system? Always talking about the abuses and claiming nothing is done. Yeah, like I thought, a lot of hot air.
And remember when Jasiri X claimed the DOJ wasn’t doing anything about police brutality?

—–Next month will mark one year since the body of Kendrick Johnson was discovered inside a gym wrestling mat. There’s a new push by his parents for answers as to exactly how the Valdosta teen died.
And they’re getting help from Atlanta’s historic Ebenezer Church
where the late Dr. King once preached. The church embraced the parents of Kendrick Johnson at the pulpit on Sunday in anticipation of a rally this week.
“They do not accept the Sheriff’s conclusion that their 17-year-old child, a gifted athlete in three sports, climbed in to a wrestling mat, got stuck trying to get a sneaker and stopped breathing,” said attorney Benjamin Crump.
The Johnson family will stand before the state capital surrounded by members of the Ebenezer congregation, attorneys, Al Sharpton and more on Wednesday.

Stay and report what’s going on in Brazil. Report all the Olympic rioting that’s coming… Nevermind.
After so much my brother said about the poverty & injustice that people suffer there, I do worry that they might try to riot then. I think their treatment will get brutal. The powers in Brazil will not tolerate anyone messing up their plans to bask in Olympic sun & roll in the big $$$. I do worry for the people.
As do I. I lived abroad in Brazil for a while, and still have friends I stay in touch with there.
I suspect the Policia Militar will be especially brutal on the favela dwellers during the World Cup and Olympics.

Chuck Todd: White House Restricting Photo Access a ‘Version of Propaganda’
by Josh Feldman | 4:04 pm, December 9th, 2013
For the last few weeks, the media has been having a quiet debate about whether or not to take a stand against using official White House photos in protest against being shut out of many White House events. On Monday, MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd took things a step further, calling the limited press access “a version of propaganda.”
Todd qualified that statement to make it clear he’s not saying this is out-and-out, overt propaganda, but argued it does come across to people as such when outside photographers aren’t allowed access. AP photojournalist Charlie Dharapak agreed, adding that it’s a “visual press release,” while Time‘sBrooks Kraft noted the only reason you wouldn’t have photojournalists in the room is in special circumstances like the situation room during the Osama bin Laden raid.
Todd qualified that statement to make it clear he’s not saying this is out-and-out, overt propaganda, but argued it does come across to people as such when outside photographers aren’t allowed access.
Passive aggressive much, Chuckles?
Yeah, we want OUR “version of propaganda.”
Chuckie Toad, take your warts & crawl under a rock, por favor!
Team Obama does not care how much you mitch, bitch and whine. All Pete gotta do is put it on twitter or Instagram.., next. Sorry journalism is dying taking pics of Obama and editing it will not help you. Yes I know you miss faux wing but putrage. Ain’t this a mess presidents been doing this since forever but here come Obama they moan. It’s all about clicks and $$$, Obama is that. Whine about something substantive because the White House told u it does not care
But they STILL complained about the OBL situation room pics!! Dana Milbank said them blurring out the papers in the photo was akin to Stalin!
Like Rikyrah said, the media is still mad because, thanks to PBO, the cable news networks didn’t get their war in Syria. This is payback for that.
Evening thread is up!
