    Despicable VILLIANS:

    The hate-filled, racist White Supremacists = the putrid SLUDGE of our society

  9. Ametia says:

    David Simon sums up the ultimate year (2013) of MEDIA FAIL, among other topics. It’s a class.

    A true hero: Temar Boggs

    • Yahtc says:

      Published on Jul 16, 2013 by TheNaturalNews
      Temar Boggs, 15, and some friends were helping an old lady move a sofa in Lancaster Township, Pennsylvania when police stopped to ask if they had seen missing five-year-old Jocelyn Rojas, who vanished from her grandmother’s yard on Thursday.
      When they saw more police and TV news crews gathering on their street, the boys decided to join the hunt.

  11. The most SHAMEFUL moment in 2013 was the Zimmerman verdict. Jurors refused to see a 17 yr old black kid as a victim & let a child killer walk. So despicable!

    This is my favorite blog post of the entire year, it reads like poetry.

    On The Mall — Gold Section
    By Charles P. Pierce
    Jan 21, 2013 at 2:30PM

    WASHINGTON — Down in the Gold section, midway down the mall, and hard by the Museum Of The History Of The American Indian, that was where the truth of things was coming down. People watched on the big screens, far distant from the banalities of counterfeit bonhomie that grow more deafening the closer you get to the looming rostrum and the end of the mall — and, not coincidentally, the closer you get to the Capitol itself as well. Down in the Gold section, John Boehner got booed when he came out onto the marble steps, and it was suggested merrily that the president kiss his vice-president on both cheeks, which is certainly not something anyone suggested George Washington should do to John Adams.

    Down in the Gold section was where it was plain and obvious that, last November, somebody won something and somebody lost something. It is now more cliche than it is insight that this country’s re-electing a black president, and in the teeth of eight-percent unemployment and a political opposition dedicated to not allowing him to do much of anything about it, in many ways was more remarkable than having elected him in the first place. That is a fine talking-point to bat around in the green room, but it was down in the Gold section where it was absolutely real, and part of the great underground river that flows beneath the polite American history that is taught in schools and that was celebrated so enthusiastically yesterday. It was down in the Gold section where they felt that river burst so powerfully to the surface at one point in the president’s speech.

    “We the people declare today that the most evident of truth that all of us are created equal — is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls and Selma and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.”

    This was an altogether revolutionary rhetorical passage from an American president — an attempt to link in a common thread the three great movements for human rights in the country’s recent history, and to do so in the correct historical order, and to assert by implication that they were all part of the same historical continuum. This has not always been the case. (To mention an uncomfortable example, many of the men involved with Selma weren’t altogether comfortable reckoning with the demands of the granddaughters of Seneca Falls, and many of them were deeply prejudiced against the sons of Stonewall.) What was equally revolutionary was what the president demanded of a nation’s honest memory — that all three movements fought not only against the entrenched bigotry and prejudices of their fellow citizens, but also against the forces of the various governments through which that entrenched bigotry found violent expression. Force-feeding suffragettes. Dogs and fire hoses. Tear gas and billyclubs. Too much of the violence was official. Too much of it was under color of law. All three movements the president cited were aimed in part at shaming the governments over which too many of his predecessors presided. And, by prefacing his remarks with “we, the people,’ the president was saying, implicitly, that he knew this, too, and he rescued for the moment all three of those moments from the numbing anesthetic of conventional American history, which prizes their outcomes, but declines too often to talk about their struggles. Down in the Gold section, nobody needed this wink and a nod. Stonewall got cheered as loudly as Selma did.

    Twenty years ago, I stood in a driveway at 2332 Guynes Street in Jackson, Mississippi. It was a white concrete driveway. In the middle of the white concrete was a dark stain that had been put there on June 12, 1963, when a man named Medgar Evers had been shot in the back in front of his children by a racist coward named Byron De La Beckwith. The stain was from Medgar Evers’s blood, and it was still there two decades later. It took 30 years to convict Beckwith of the crime because the entrenched bigotry and prejudices of the people of Mississippi found expression in the Mississippi courts. (To be entirely fair, it also was a Mississippi court that finally convicted him in 1994.) Yesterday, at the beginning of the 50th anniversary of her husband’s murder, Myrlie Evers-Williams delivered the invocation at the inauguration of the first African American to be re-elected president of the United States. At one point, she prayed:

    “And that the vision of those that came before us and dreamed of this day, that we recognize that their visions still inspire us. They are a great cloud of witnesses unseen by the naked eye but all around us thankful that their living was not in vain. For every mountain you gave us the strength to climb. Your grace is pleaded to continue that climb for America and the world.”

    Down in the Gold section, everybody was quiet, and you could hear that great river moving again under everything, a history that this country too often resists, but that is irresistable because of the great contradictions within which this country was born. Myrlie Evers-Williams was the first person ever to give an invocation at a presidential inauguration who wasn’t a preacher. Didn’t matter. Down in the Gold section, they knew who had won and who had lost, and what had triumphed, and what had been defeated. They knew grace when it fell on them.
