If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president.

Ann Coulter (via goodreasonnews)

Ladies and Gents, Ann Coulter!  Once again proving she is neither a woman or a human being!

God, but she is an insufferable fucking cunt.  She would make me twice as ragey if I didn’t realize intellectually she merely spews the crap she does in an effort to gain any kind of “relevancy”.

Can we take away her right to speak? Or exist?

*Bad liberal.

Okay, now…….I don’t condone violence. Not for real. But, um……….Ann?…….

Updates on CeCe’s case (we need help making bail!)

Hi everyone, here are a few updates on the progress of CeCe’s case, and how you can support her!

1. Court/legal update
2. Bail money and collateral needed!
3. Upcoming meetings and community events
————————————

1. **Court/legal update**
This morning in court, CeCe’s bail was reduced to $75,000 with the following conditions: electronic home monitoring; no contact with witnesses; no drug and alcohol use; and remain law abiding. Her trial date was set for January 9th.

2. **Bail money and collateral needed!**
Now that CeCe’s bail has been reduced, we want to move as quickly as possible to get her out of jail! We need to raise $7,500 immediately to cover the costs of her bond. WE ARE ALSO SEEKING COLLATERAL, which is necessary in order to be able to bond her out. Collateral would be a house or other asset of similar value; if you have something like that and you’d consider putting it up to make it possible for CeCe to be out of jail pending trial, please let us know! Contact mpls4cece@gmail.com or call Katie at 612-363-7574. (Funds are also needed for commissary and other related incarceration costs.) Find info about making donations here: http://supportcece.wordpress.com/donate

3. **Upcoming meetings and community events**

*September 30: Purple House Open House Fundraiser for CeCe and Movie Showing. The Purple House will be screening Meu Brazil (My Brazil), a documentary film by Daniela Broitman about community leaders from the slums of Rio De Janeiro who travel to the Fifth World Social Forum.
8 pm at 3155 14th Ave S., Mpls.

*October 15: Fundraising dinner for CeCe and Carlos Montes. Details TBA.

*October 16: Black, Brown, and Queer All Over, at The Exchange (3405 Chicago Ave S, Mpls)! This event is a queer and trans hip hop concert for The Exchange and CeCe. Featuring Kevin “Kaoz” Moore, Heidi Barton Stink, ZaVawn Carre, Chey Bryant, House of Bordeaux, and more!

*There are media/outreach meetings at 6 pm at the Exchange (3405 Chicago Ave S, Mpls) every other Thursday at 6 pm. The next one is October 6th.

*and…the next general CeCe Support Committee Meeting is Wednesday, October 5th at 6 pm, and the first Wednesday of every month thereafter. Also at the Exchange (3405 Chicago Ave S, Mpls)

Conservatives Are Outraged … at Herman Cain
It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Rick Perry, and now, with the Washington Post throwing him into a racial controversy, things are about to get … much better! Wait, what? Let’s backtrack a bit. Yesterday, the Post published a bombshell story about a hunting camp the Perry family has leased on and off since the early eighties. 
[…]
Asked yesterday about the story, [Herman] Cain, the only black Republican in the race, lashed out at Perry. “Since Governor Perry has been going there for years to hunt, I think that it shows a lack of sensitivity for a long time of not taking that word off of that rock and renaming the place,” Cain said on This Week.
[…]
Cain’s reaction is certainly understandable. Anyone could find the revelations offensive, and Cain is a black man who grew up in the segregated South. And yet, as Michael Tomasky points out today, it’s Cain, not Perry, who could be damaged the most by this story. To understand why, you have to consider that there are two things Republicans hate more than anything. One is being accused of racism, which has happened with increasing frequency since President Obama became president, and, if you ask Republicans, is never, ever justified. Two is unfair treatment by the allegedly biased mainstream media. So among Republicans, the widespread response to the Post story was not, “wow, Rick Perry messed up.” It was, “the liberal media is smearing another Republican as a racist!”


Please, God. Don’t make me have to defend Herman Cain. This is such a sick joke. Please?!?!?!!?!?!?

huh? what? 

can all them fall off the face of the fucking earth.

In a letter to The Orlando Sentinel, Mr. Zimmerman’s father said that his son had black relatives and friends and was not the aggressor in the case.

— From “Justice Department Investigating Florida Killing After Outcry,” The New York Times.

This is one of those serious “laughing to keep from crying” moments, isn’t it? Side-eyeing the hell out of this AND The New York Times for reasons that will be obvious to people who are not blind.

It was hailed as “90 minutes of singing, dancing, orchestral oomph and, in short, pure joy” by The Daily News and named Best Jazz Moment of 2011 by The Wall Street Journal. The New York Times said it “made period jazz come to life with a focused intensity and rhythmic savvy that left me open-mouthed with wonder.”

Cotton Club Parade is a Broadway-style revue celebrating Ellington’s years at the famed Harlem nightclub in the 1920s and ‘30s, when the joint was jumping with revues featuring big band swing and blues. As in the original shows, Cotton Club Parade will feature singers, dancers and variety acts, with songs by the greatest jazz composers of the time, includingJimmy McHughandDorothy Fields(“I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” and “Digga Digga Doo”), a youngHarold Arlen(“Stormy Weather,” “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,”), and of course,Duke Ellington(“Rockin’ in Rhythm,” “Cotton Club Stomp,” “Black and Tan Fantasy,” and “Creole Love Call”).

(Photo: Dylan Martinez / Reuters)
We can now add Gabby Douglas to the list.
That “list” includes Mary Lou Retton, Carly Patteron, and Nastia Liukin – the only three American gymnasts to ever win the women’s Olympic all-around title.  With the performance of her life in today’s all-around final in London, Gabby Douglas has just become the fourth.
Some may have considered the talented – but unpredictable –16-year-old to be an unlikely Olympic champion.
Read the complete story.

oh, NOW you wanna play nice, when you have no choice, after you dogged her out set after set after set. 
go straight to hell, NBC, and take your shitty-ass excuse for commentators with you.
