“Do you think Mary Todd Lincoln did it like this?”
SURE SHE DID !
“A history of mood swings, fierce temper, public outbursts throughout Lincoln’s presidency, as well as excessive spending, has led some historians and psychologists to speculate that Mary suffered from bipolar disorder.”
“After she nearly jumped out of a window to escape a non-existent fire, her son determined that she should be institutionalized. On May 20, 1875, he committed her to a private asylum in Batavia, Illinois.”
“Mary Lincoln was released into the custody of her sister in Springfield. In 1876 she was declared competent to manage her own affairs. After the court proceedings, Mary Lincoln was so enraged that she attempted suicide. She went to the hotel pharmacist and ordered enough laudanum to kill herself, but he realized her intent and gave her a placebo.”

So the big movie star, Ben Affleck, claimed to a slightly taken aback Bill O’Reilly last year at the realise of his film that “These are extraordinary, honourable people at the CIA” (http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/e703e1fc-7cee-11e2-adb6-00144feabdc0.html#axzz2LjbpZaFn).
Woahh! If Ben Afflect is a well established Hollywood figure and Hollywood is undeniably “liberal”, then surely Afflect must be a liberal, too, right? And if being a “liberal” means you are anti-American, and being anti-American is doing things like being a squish on things like defense and espionage and all the other ‘dark arts’ of empire, harping all day long about the crimes of Murder, Inc. and so forth, then what’s going on here?
Has the world turned completely upside down? Could it be that maybe the “liberals” aren’t really so “left” at all?
Please help a confused comrade who’s head hurts understand, some wise con.

The Vatican on Saturday strongly condemned media coverage of a report that is said to contain information about the influence of a gay network and financial mismanagement within the Vatican, and which may have triggered Pope Benedict’s decision to resign. But in his statement, a spokesman for the Vatican did not deny the report’s existence or dispute the description of its findings.
The Italian newspaper La Repubblica broke the story that the report, which was commissioned by Pope Benedict in the wake of Vatileaks and prepared by a trio of cardinals, concluded that “various lobbies within the Holy See were consistently breaking” the sixth and seventh commandments, “thou shalt not commit adultery” and “thou shalt not steal.”

And I love that the GOPers, like the repulsive Lynn Westmoreland, are tormented by her very presence.
“Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Senator Obama, they’re a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they’re uppity.” When the reporter asked if “uppity” was really the word he wished to use, Westmoreland said: “Uppity, yeah.”
Last year, Westmoreland was one of only two members of Congress (422-2) to vote against a bill named after the slain 14-year-old African-American boy, Emmett Till, which would provide funds to the FBI to investigate killings during the civil rights era.

Looks like I might soon have better weapons then Bro.
A growing number of firearm and firearm-related companies have stated they will no longer sell items to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens’ rights to own them.
According to The Police Loophole, 34 companies have joined in publicly stating that governments who seek to restrict 2nd Amendment rights will themselves be restricted from purchasing the items they seek to limit or ban.
Extreme Firepower Inc., located in Inwood, WV has had a longstanding policy that states:
“The Federal Government and several states have enacted gun control laws that restrict the public from owning and possessing certain types of firearms…If a product that we manufacture is not legal for a private citizen to own in a jurisdiction, we will not sell that product to a law-enforcement agency in that jurisdiction.”
York Arms, located in Buxton, ME released a statement following new legislation in New York:
“Based on the recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to residents of New York. We have chosen to extend that prohibition to all governmental agencies associated with or located within New York.”
Quality Arms, located in Rigby, ID writes on their website, “elected officials have their own agenda to circumnavigate the truth and destroy the constitution of the United States.”
The site states: “Quality Arms Idaho will not supply and firearm or product, manufactured by us, or any other company nor will we warranty, repair, alter, or modify and firearm owned by any State, County or Municipality who infringes on the right of its citizens to bear arms under the 2nd Amendment.”
Bravo Company USA states:
“The people at Bravo Company USA and BCM support responsible private individuals having access to the same tools of civilian Law Enforcement to affect the same ends…As such Bravo Company’s policy is that law enforcement officials and departments will be restricted to the same type of products available to responsible private individuals of that same city or state.”

WASHINGTON — Hollywood actor and political activist Danny Glover, star of the “Lethal Weapon” films with Mel Gibson, told The Daily Caller that Congress should “abolish guns” in the U.S.
“I don’t own a gun and definitely not only Gun Control, we should abolish guns, the personal guns. That’s how far I’m willing to go,” Glover told TheDC at a TransAfrica Forum benefit event on Wednesday night.
“There are many people in this country who do not have guns, who don’t own guns and are still under the same, are still susceptible to being burglarized or anything, but that doesn’t mean that we should willingly accept the fact that we need guns. We have to find some sort of way in which we live together, some sort of way in which we move on, for the human species to move on without guns.”
Glover said if Martin Luther King, Jr. was alive today, “he would be out there advocating for the end of guns as a prelude to the end of violence as well.”

Colin Powell Calls Out The GOP’s Racism Problem: There Is ‘A Dark Vein Of Intolerance’
There’s also a dark — a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. What do I mean by that? I mean by that that they still sort of look down on minorities. How can I evidence that?
When I see a former governor say that the President is “shuckin’ and jivin’,” that’s a racial era slave term. When I see another former governor after the president’s first debate where he didn’t do very well, says that the president was lazy. He didn’t say he was slow. He was tired. He didn’t do well. He said he was lazy. Now, it may not mean anything to most Americans, but to those of us who are African Americans, the second word is shiftless and then there’s a third word that goes along with that. The birther, the whole birther movement. Why do senior Republican leaders tolerate this kind of discussion within the party?
Powell added that the Republican Party is “having an identity problem,” noting that its significant shift to the right has produced “two losing presidential campaigns.” “I think what the Republican Party needs to do now is a very hard look at itself and understand that the country is changed,” he said. “If the Republican Party does not change along with that demographic, they are going to be in trouble.
And because they have no intentions whatsoever of dealing with their racial demons, here is to protracted and big trouble for the identity problem gang…

“Civil-rights activists, even those committed to nonviolent resistance, had long appreciated the value of guns for self-protection. Martin Luther King Jr. applied for a permit to carry a concealed firearm in 1956, after his house was bombed. His application was denied, but from then on, armed supporters guarded his home. One adviser, Glenn Smiley, described the King home as “an arsenal.” William Worthy, a black reporter who covered the civil-rights movement, almost sat on a loaded gun in a living-room armchair during a visit to King’s parsonage.”
February 23rd, 20136:57 pm
“Martin Luther King, Jr., known for peaceful resistance, at the same time recognized the importance of gun ownership for self-defense.

King was a gun owner.”

One thing all military types have in common is the mental flaw to accept what they are told without question, whether it be from upbringing, peers…they do not have the ability to learn new ideas and concepts or think for themselves. Most come from low class families…who in this country is type of people who cling to religion and quote it as proven science…just like the republicans who pander to them.

Why don’t you finish the story about MLK Jr. and how he got rid of his gun after his house was bombed. I seem to recall that he felt he didn’t need a gun to protect himself as God would do so himself. If a man, as threatened as he was, can forego gun ownership and let God protect him, what does that say about the “God fearing” people who don’t live in such danger nowadays that can’t breathe without their guns?

UCLA law professor Adam Winkler explores this history in his 2011 book, Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America. “Like many young African Americans, Newton and Seale were frustrated with the failed promise of the civil-rights movement,” Winkler writes. In their opinion, “the only tangible outcome of the civil-rights movement had been more violence and oppression, much of it committed by the very entity meant to protect the public: the police.” Winkler goes on to say, “Malcolm X and the Panthers described their right to use guns in self-defense in constitutional terms.” Guns became central to the Panthers’ identity, as they taught their early recruits that “the gun is the only thing that will free us — gain us our liberation.”
The Panthers responded to racial violence by patrolling black neighborhoods brandishing guns — in an effort to police the police. The fear of black people with firearms sent shockwaves across white communities, and conservative lawmakers immediately responded with gun-control legislation.
Then Gov. Ronald Reagan, now lauded as the patron saint of modern conservatism, told reporters in California that he saw “no reason why on the street today a citizen should be carrying loaded weapons.” Reagan claimed that the Mulford Act, as it became known, “would work no hardship on the honest citizen.” The NRA actually helped craft similar legislation in states across the country. Fast-forward to 2013, and it is a white-male dominated NRA, largely made up of Southern conservatives and gun owners from the Midwest and Southwestern states, that argues “do not tread on me” in the gun debate.

Check this out, from The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the chapter titled “The Violence of Desperate Men.” The scene is Montgomery in 1956, shortly after King’s home was bombed:
After the bombings, many of the officers of my church and other trusted friends urged me to hire a bodyguard and armed watchmen for my house. When my father came to town, he concurred with both of these suggestions. I tried to tell them that I had no fears now and consequently needed no weapons for protection. This they would not hear. They insisted that I protect the house and family, even if I didn’t want to protect myself. In order to satisfy the wishes of these close friends and associates, I decided to consider the question of an armed guard. I went down to the sheriff’s office and applied for a license to carry a gun in the car; but this was refused.
Meanwhile I reconsidered. How could I serve as one of the leaders of a nonviolent movement and at the same time use weapons of violence for my personal protection? Coretta and I talked the matter over for several days and finally agreed that arms were no solution. We decided then to get rid of the one weapon we owned. We tried to satisfy our friends by having floodlights mounted around the house, and hiring unarmed watchmen around the clock. I also promised that I would not travel around the city alone.
I was much more afraid in Montgomery when I had a gun in my house. When I decided that I couldn’t keep a gun, I came face-to-face with the question of death and I dealt with it. From that point on, I no longer needed a gun nor have I been afraid. Had we become distracted by the question of my safety we would have lost the moral offensive and sunk to the level of our oppressors.

1) If MLK, Jr. changed his mind that’s fine. He had the right to do that. But I bet he wore a seat belt in his car even though “God could protect him” ………. Hummmmm ………………..
Remember Carl Rowan? He changed his mind too !!!
“In a 1981 column, he advocated “a law that says anyone found in possession of a handgun except a legitimate officer of the law goes to jail—period.”
“Rowan gained public notoriety on June 14, 1988, when he shot an unarmed teenage trespasser, Neil Smith, who was on his property illegally. “The interloper was a near-naked teenager who had been skinny-dipping with friends in Rowan’s pool, and the columnist’s weapon was an unregistered, and thus very illegal, .22 caliber pistol.”
Tsk, tsk !
2) “Also, tell the story about how the NRA actively advocated for and pushed gun control measures when the Black Panthers decided to enjoy and express their 2nd Amendment rights.”
If the NRA advocated that back then they would have been wrong ………… and would be wrong if they advocated that now. Kind of like a lot of Democrat Senators (i.e., Gore Sr. !) who fought against the Voting Rights Act ………….. now most Democrats have changed their minds ……………. )
