    Where is code pink and traditional emo prog rants, heckling on the dems and gop wanting to match us to war?? Oh that’s right silence but don’t forget drones.

    • Alma98

      They’re too busy at the moment holding up Elizabeth Warren as a beacon of righteousness.

      • AxelFoley

        Until she doesn’t vote they way they want, and then it’ll be “Warren betrayed us! She’s worse than Bush!”

        Psyche, it won’t get that bad, because she’s white.

        • Alma98

          True

        • Admiral_Komack

          It could happen.
          It just depends on how badly she pisses them off.

    • AxelFoley

      *crickets*

    • Aquagranny911

      I would like to drone their asses off while they are typing at Starbucks, sucking up the free WiFi!

      • Alma98

        LOL

      • AxelFoley

        ROFL!

      • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

        LOL!

  • Alma98

    Some one at the Blaze must have watched old repeats of Tia & Tamera Mowry’s reality show. The one when she said someone called her a white man’s whore on twitter. He conveniently left out the part where both sisters said they’ve been called niggers though. And latched on to one part of the convo. I remember when this took place and it was a few years ago. I guess they’re trying to use it to say black folks are racist, whateva.

    • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

      I saw a video the Twins recently did for OWN, and in the video Tamera cried about being called “white man’s whore”, and Tia said that people have told her that she married down by marrying a Black man. Maybe the Blaze is talking about that video?

      • rikyrah

        I saw that snippet on Youtube.

      • Alma98

        Maybe, but he only chose to highlight Tamera’s comment. He has a pic of her dabbing her tears so maybe that’s the video he watched. Truth be told I don’t like Tamera’s husband. Not because he’s white but because there’s something about him that’s not right. You know what I mean? Tia seems more sure of herself than Tamera. Tamera has said that she tends to be a people pleaser and look for folks approval. I just thought it curious that he latched onto the white man’s whore comment is all.

        • rikyrah

          the part of the video that made me feel bad was when she said someone had written that it used to be he (Da White Man) had to pay $300 for you (during slavery), but now, she was giving it away for free.

          • Alma98

            Yep that’s what I’m talking about rikyrah. They first talked about it on their show. Tia told her to ignore them because there are a lot of ignorant folks on twitter. I feel bad for her because it seems she takes these idiots words to heart.

        • AxelFoley

          Tamera’s husband works for a Fox affiliate, I believe. It’s an affiliate, but next stop Fox News headquarters in NYC, I wouldn’t doubt.

          • Alma98

            I swear I remember him saying something about PBO last year, and it was mentioned on POU. I find him off putting but more power to her.

          • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

            I remember her being read for filth on Twitter because she made a slick comment about VP Biden to Greta Susteren during his debate with Paul Ryan. Instead of taking the L and moving on, she started whining and acting like she was the victim.

          • Alma98

            I remember that.

          • AxelFoley

            What she say?

          • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

            She said something about VP Biden being rude interrupting Ryan. That was the right wing talking point used to take away from the fact Joe Chainez whooped Ryan’s ass on national tv.

          • AxelFoley

            Hmm…she gone, ya’ll. Ol’ boy done warped her mind.

          • Alma98

            He got her when she was young and vulnerable in college. She said she was deeply depressed and he saved her.

          • AxelFoley

            Damn. Never understood how women could be taken by dudes like that. And as cute as she is, she could have just about any dude she wanted.

            Low self esteem is a sumabitch.

          • Alma98

            “Low self esteem is a sumabitch”. Yes it is Axel!

          • TyrenM

            Come on Ax, you can do better than that.

            “It’s called SELF esteem bitches.”

            *runs out the room*

          • AxelFoley

            LOLOLOLOLOL

        • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

          You. Me. >>>Here<<< about her husband. He works for Fox News, and from the tweets he's made, he embraces right wing ideology.

          I also agree with you about Tamera being insecure. And from watching their reality show, she comes across as having color issues, imo.

          • Alma98

            YES! That’s what I’m talking about. She definitely has some color issues. And she seems to attract clingy friends with the same issues.

          • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

            Like attracts like!

            BTW, there were rumors that her family does not like her husband, and that he cheats on her.

          • MsKitty

            I remember seeing an article a while back that Tamera and her husband’s relationship while dating had been off and on, and when they got back together for good Tia was none too pleased because of how badly he had hurt Tamera.

          • Alma98

            You right MsKitty, she talked about it herself on their show.

          • AxelFoley

            Hmm…she’s that type, huh? Let her dude run all over her.

            SMH

            Hell, just based off looks, she coulda did a LOT better than his monkey ass.

          • Alma98

            I have to say it does seems like her family doesn’t have much to do with him. Tamera said she was a go to the club fun girl and he saved her. I was like say what!

          • aleth

            She does

        • Town

          I’m tired of Tamera’s Monsters Balls tears. Getting nasty comments for marrying outside your race is nothing new…she can ask her mom about that. I’m quite sure her mom got even more nasty comments than she ever has. Call up Bill DeBlasio’s wife and see what comments she got. Or the Lovings family. She’s not unique or new & she needs to stop crying as though her experience is unique; it’s not.

          • Alma98

            Tell it Town!

          • AxelFoley

            LOL @ Monsters Balls tears.

    – – – -Obama to visit Pope Francis, Kerry says- —
    ——The White House on Tuesday said President Obama will visit Pope Francis, though it did not say when the meeting would happen.

    “I do not have any more details for you on that, timing or location, otherthan to say that the president looks forward to the visit,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday during his press briefing.

    Carney made the comments after Secretary of State John Kerry, during a visit to Vatican City, said Obama was looking forward to meeting Pope Francis.

    “I know that the Holy Father is anticipating the visit of President Obama here, and the president is looking forward to coming here to meet with him,” Kerry said after his own meeting with Archbishop Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s secretary of state.

    Obama has made clear his admiration for Francis, who has soared to popularity since becoming pope last year.

    “I think Pope Francis is showing himself to be just an extraordinarily thoughtful and soulful messenger of peace and justice,” Obama said in December, noting he hadn’t had a chance to meet the pope yet.

    Obama also cited the pope’s call for concern for the homeless in a major inequality speech last month.

          I felt like PBO was very sad when Nelson Mandela passed. Actually, I cried when he
          made the announcement; he had lost a man

    How is everyone else today?

      Try not to worry lamh, if they called you back before they’ll call again. Just keep thinking positive, I’ll do the same for you. Fingers & toes crossed lol.

      • lamh36

        I’m not really worried Alma. It’s just a pet peeve of my own. I hate people who return calls much later or even days later after you’ve left a voicemail.

        My thinking has always been, “if it’s an important call, they’ll leave a message” so when people do, I assume they need me to call them back, soon as I can or at least acknowlege the receipt of the message

    Oh, this is funny as hail!

    Remember Juicy J offered a scholarship for the best twerker? Well, he awarded the scholarship to a sista that didn’t twerk! The thing is, the rules stated that twerking wasn’t necessary to be eligible for the contest! And now some Black feminists are mad, accusing him of “slut shaming”.

    Twerkers Beware: Juicy J Thinks Reading is Fundamental

    …But I’m absolutely incensed at Juicy J for even daring to invoke respectability politics when announcing his choice of winner.

    In the opening scene of the video, Juicy J says, “Fifty thousand dollars is a lot of money and I don’t want to waste it on just some girl
    twerking her ass. You don’t deserve it.”

    Um what?! No sir. No fucking sir. You invited women to twerk, all while

    “Scholarship,” which is about a woman who pays her way through school by dancing.

    Zaire says at the end of the video, “a lot of people thought you had to twerk but you just had to read the rules.” And Juicy J chimes right in, “See that’s what you get for shaking your ass and thinking you were gone get some money. It’s not always about shaking your ass.”

    Now look, I know this shit seems clever, but color me unimpressed. Zaire was clearly a deserving candidate, but that does not mean that the scores of women who showed off their twerking skills deserved to be shamed or to have Juicy J’s whack ass insinuate that they were stupid.

          I think it’s a term white women created to rationalize their hoetivities.

          BTW, when women of color were labeled as “hoes”, “sluts”..etc., I don’t recall white feminists inventing terms such as “slut shaming” to defend us. That’s why I don’t understand why some Black feminists embrace these new terms Miss Ann and nem invent.

    Tamera Mowry’s husband speaks out about the comments on their marriage:

    “The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial
    relationship is beyond sad…it is pathetic,” Housley tells TVNewser. “Yes I am white.Yes she is half black. Marrying a white man does not erase
    her color and marrying a woman who is half black does not mean I am
    blinded. The problem isn’t pigmentation…the problem is backwards,
    bigoted thought from people who should know better.”

    http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/adam-housley-on-interracial-marriage-attacks-backwards-bigoted-and-pathetic_b210304

    Hmm….It bothers me that he refers to her as “half black” even though both Tamara and her sister have ALWAYS referred to themselves as BLACK women.

    • Alma98

        • Alma98

          The sisters themselves have said that their parents told them in this country you’re black. And they chose to be black.

          • rikyrah

            Unless you look like the late former head of the NAACP, Walter White, you don’t get to ‘ CHOOSE’ to be Black in America.

            Black folk didn’t invent the one-drop rule.

            And White folks don’t get to ignore it at their convenience.

            I’m gonna be blunt – either you are Black, or you are confused, spending your life trying to prove that you’re so ‘ SPECIAL’. Don’t say that some don’t go that route, but I haven’t seen one yet where that route winds them up at a positive place.

          • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

            It’s like they’re trying to get honorary white status by using terms like “biracial” or “half-black”. Hell, Black Americans ARE racially mixed, but we’re still Black.

          • rikyrah

            The Black community in America has ALWAYS been multi-racial…

            from the moment Massa went to the slave quarters.

            Ain’t a Black person in American with slave ancestry that doesn’t have White ancestry…period.

          • Alma98

            I don’t think he likes people calling her black.
            It reminds me of white people on the left that say the same thing about PBO.

          • AxelFoley

            Right? I remember seeing people on the left (especially at DKos) referring to PBO as our “first biracial President”.

            Oh, technically, they right. But this is America, where the One Drop Rule rules supreme and he’s been black in it all his life.

          • Alma98

            Yep, I remember that ish.

          • TresL

            Chris Rock said it best referring to Tiger Woods. “He’s cablanasian until he commits a crime and then, he’s that black golfer.” It’s white folks desperate attempt to claim credit for the accomplishments of bi-racial people who in most instances they reject and treat with the same scorn they treat black people. The reason many bi-racial people claim black identity is because we generally accept them because of the brutal history of such children being born out of slave rape.

          • AxelFoley

            Nothing but the damn truth in this post.

          • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

          • TresL

            If so, he’s sick. Don’t marry someone with a black mother if you don’t want her referred to as black. It reminds me of Tiger Woods’ mother who didn’t like that he was referred to as black. She’s been in this country long enough to know that if you have a black parent and an obvious tint to your skin, you’re black. And again, if you don’t want your son called black don’t marry and have a child with a black man.

          • Alma98

            ICAM TresL, but you know there are folks like that in this country. They think the poc they married is exempt because they married a white person.

          • AxelFoley

            Yup. I’ve seen that shit before. I remember watching this guy years on either Phil Donahue or Oprah who was a racist that married a black woman.

      This feels like a swink DKos kind of play. You know what I mean? Play bully-victim w/no evidence, where she’s the
      victim always attacked by THEM. Who’s them?

      “The problem isn’t pigmentation”? Really? Why use such a remote 4 syllable word? He divides her up, and then distances himself from that “black” part.

      PBO said long ago he self identified as black, cause when he flags a cab, the cabdriver sees a black guy. He can’t see his DNA. He looked at the interviewer, like “It’s pretty damn obvious, don’t you think?”

    — — -A prosecutor who was sacked after attempting to indict Chris Christie’s political cronies for corruption told MailOnline today about his ordeal at the hands of the New Jersey Governor’s ‘mafia.’

    Bennett Barlyn, a prosecutor for 18 years in New Jersey’s Hunterdon County, has spoken out following the revelations over the Bridgegate scandal to reveal his firsthand account of being fired and shamed at the hands of Christie and his political henchmen.

    He said there were parallels between a criminal case he tried to prosecute – before, he says, it was unlawfully dismissed – and the Bridgegate scandal, where Christie’s staff closed off travel lanes leading to the George Washington Bridge, in order to retaliate against a Democratic mayor who had declined to endorse him for re-election.
