And why comments about President and Mrs Obama have intensified this profane behavior in the USA, characteristic of the ultra right Republican Party, former Dixiecrats, KKK and slave owners, along with the silent majority who allow it to go on unchallenged. The so-called liberals!
How Americans have reacted to these two great players, rooting often against them for the NON American player, unforgivable!

No love for this tennis tournament: Times staffer Michelle Maltais writes about how the memories of a mostly white crowd booing Serena Williams at Indian Wells still sting 11 years later.

The reality in America is that most black parents teach their children both intentionally and subconsciously about cultural realities, as matter-of-factly as teaching kids to look both ways before crossing the street.
To blacks, these are the cultural ABCs: Always be conscious. These lessons become so much a part of us, they course through us just as our blood moves through our veins. They can trigger a fight-or-flight reaction when circumstances seem dangerous.

Exif Data Zoom Voters Slowly Realizing Santorum Believes Every Deranged Word That Comes Out Of His Mouth
Comments from Santorum defending sodomy laws as acceptable restrictions on ”wants and passions” and characterizing pregnancy occurring through rape as a ”gift” from God were not politically calculated but were, in fact, spoken out of sincere, startling conviction.
Great article!

Voters Slowly Realizing Santorum Believes Every Deranged Word That Comes Out Of His Mouth

Comments from Santorum defending sodomy laws as acceptable restrictions on ”wants and passions” and characterizing pregnancy occurring through rape as a ”gift” from God were not politically calculated but were, in fact, spoken out of sincere, startling conviction.

Great article!

By no means, a “stab in your back” memo. The reaction to this specific critique is more a reflection of re-activity to Mr Gumbel than what he wrote as the lead anchor for the Today Show. He was always, on time, prepared and shit smart! The work of the individuals he describes, frankly, were as he indicated in this memo. I say to all the Bryant Gumbel haters, get over it!

In which Bryant Gumbel wrote a single-spaced, four-page memo in Courier New font critiquing the staff and talent at The Today Show 24 years ago and Hell yes, it still makes for great, stab-in-the-back reading.

French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said when asked on Europe 1 radio if such an accord existed. “He’s taking on airs. The idea that these people would spend their time on the phone talking about him is absurd.”
Der Spiegel said German Chancellor Angela Merkel, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti had all agreed not to host Hollande before France’s presidential election because of his demands to renegotiate a European Union budget treaty if he’s elected.

The French like the Americans have kept their distance from their president. In France, with Sarkozy, it’s a question of perceived vulgarity. In the United States, it’s a question of perceived aloofness. Somewhere beneath those perceptions lie deeper prejudices.

In America, all the nonsense about Obama being a Muslim or a European Socialist reflects some of his opponents’ repressed repugnance at the fact he’s African-American. In France, there’s a view of Sarkozy as the parvenu.

Francois Hollande declared on Jan. 28 that imposing hypertaxes on the very rich backfires. “A punitive tax on a tiny fraction of taxpayers would not produce much revenue,” he said.

His flip-flop, although it seems to have given him a slight boost in the polls, but this is not only an indication that he wavers, but also of the French crabbiness. They hate progress and people who are financially successful or in general.

Francois Hollande promises to impose a 75% tax on the income of people earning more than EUR1 million a year. About 57% of French voters said they support the tax rate because “it will contribute to more social justice,” Ipsos found, while 42% of voters oppose the tax “because it will encourage the richest to leave France.”

Hilarious, Oprah and Jimmy Kimmel! Probably wouldn’t pass the Sanctum Santorum test, but then Rick is sick!

And it is the reason not to watch or remember.

…you know who they almost never thank? You. The filmgoer. The person who watched four hours of pre-show and red-carpet coverage. The one who keeps their names straight, who pays attention to what they wear (whether to the Oscars or to the Whole Foods).

The people who still go to movies once in a while. The movie industry adored themselves as moviegoers [last night], but they never get around to remembering us. The gall.

We disagree with righteous Rick. His values are NOT our values!
“Your values — your values — will return to the White House and to our country!” said Santorum at a rally in Holland, Michigan
What’s is going on in the chaotic GOP?!

What a barf bag! Asked Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” how his faith fits in with his ideas about governing, Santorum said he disagreed with the “absolute separation” between church and state outlined by Kennedy in a 1960 speech.
Santorum said reading the speech made him want to “throw up.

Preachy Rick Santornum says that he is the only “full-spectrum conservative”

Nope, he is a full spectrum inquisitionist! He is able to spout off such hate speech because the USA allows for religious liberty he would deny those who disagree with his doctrines. Such medieval madness is no different than the Black Death plague that killed millions.

The problem is NOT Catholicism, but Taliban Catholics like Sanctimonious Rick!

Let’s close all the Catholic universities in the USA. Rick Santorum is deleteriously crazy and his speech borders on hate speech! But this tops them all when he said, “President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob.”
