The Red Cross In Haiti

The American Red Cross spent a quarter of the money people donated after the 2010 Haiti earthquake — or almost $125 million — on its own internal expenses, far more than the charity previously had disclosed, according to a report released Thursday by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley.

If you wish to donate wisely give to the Salvation Army or Catholic Charities.

Growing Up To Be A Man

As the news cycle careens wildly from one "news item" to the next, Larry Elder keeps beating this drum:
The Three Biggest Problems Facing The Black Community:
1) Lack of fathers in the home
2) Lack of fathers in the home
3) Lack of fathers in the home
Then, just for good measure, he quotes Denzel Washington:
If the father is not in the home, the boy will find a father in the streets. I saw it in my generation and every generation before me, and every one since. If the streets raise you, then the judge becomes your mother and prison becomes your home. -- Denzel Washington

Taxpayer Funded Planned Parenthood To Spend $30 Million Mid-Term Elections

It is appalling that an organization that receives taxpayer money from the government is spending $30 million to directly influence state and federal elections. Planned Parenthood ostensibly follows the law regarding this situation since the money is funneled through the affiliated Planned Parenthood Votes before lining the pockets of politicians. At any rate, the IRS has never been known to give the abortion provider trouble the likes of how it specifically targeted conservative political activist organizations by withholding tax-exempt status.

Thirty million dollars! That's five times what  the non-taxpayer funded NRA has spent in the last six years.

Starbucks: The King Of Double Standards

Kudos for Sheriff David Clarke for reminding us of the double standard practiced by the self-righteous guardians of social justice such as Starbucks, who flagellate themselves in public over the injustice of denying non-paying patrons use of their facilities – patrons who happen to be black:
Not too long ago a Philadelphia Starbucks refused to let a police officer use the restroom telling him it was for paying customers.  Don't remember Starbucks closing 8000 stores for sensitivity training toward police.

This Monday It's How I Feel



Maybe because I'm getting old but I go to bed earlier than ever before in my life, around 9 pm. The beauty of it is I toss and turn then stare at the ceiling until 1 am. Left side, back, right side, stomach. What a routine.

At 12:30 I sauntered downstairs and grabbed a handful(actually, it was more than a handful) of almonds and drug my bad knee and pitiful hip upstairs.

It's possible to be asleep and not be asleep. In other words, I never get out of cycle 2 REM.

As for the baby in the picture----"right back at ya' kid"

Hint: Don't Drink And Drive

There are one heck of a lot of Democrats who want 16 year old's to have the right to vote because they're so 'inteligunt'. Take for example a 16 year old from Erie Kansas High school. He stole a a pickup truck, a very nice one, then crashed it through the school's front door and down three hallways before it came to a halt. Damn walls!

The police thought alcohol might have been involved. His classmates, no doubt, were pleased with his actions. School was canceled for two days while the clean up took place.

Place Her In The 'Dumbest Of Dumb' Democrat Category

Charlotte City Council member LaWana Mayfield apologized on the WCNC show "Flashpoint" for "the hurt and pain" due to her social media post about an "alleged plane" in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
But in the interview, which aired Sunday morning, Mayfield did not say definitively whether she believed the World Trade Center towers fell because they were hit by two jetliners hijacked by terrorists.
Host Ben Thompson asked Mayfield: "Do you believe the planes took down those towers?"
Mayfield responded: "What I believe is that we lost Americans during this event. What I believe is that after this event, our nation identified a segment of our community and said this community is now terrorists. And from that moment, we have been saying 'terrorists, terrorists, terrorists.' " But, she said, "white Americans who have committed mass killings since that time" were not called "terrorists."

Did I mention LaWana is a Black activist
