"Ayeee I knocked out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!" young James Edwards tweeted on July 15 in the wake of George Zimmerman´s acquittal for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Edwards´s tweets surfaced after he and two of his homies were charged with killing Australian baseball player Chris Lane in Duncan, Oklahoma, last Friday. For the record, "woods" is short for peckerwoods, a derogatory term for white people. If Edwards, who is black, knocked out five woods as claimed, he would hardly be unique. As Colin Flaherty chillingly documents in his frequently updated book, White Girl Bleed A Lot, the "knock-out
Obama, Holder, Jacka$$, $harpton, hundreds of Obamedia mouthpieces and hundreds of needy celebrities. Well, maybe not so much the celebrities, because not one of them was hired for having BRAINS but they bear a little responsibility; heck, they´ve slowed down but the occasional celebrity whatever still makes some asinine quote to a media that thinks America still cares.
There should be a civil lawsuit against these scum like Jackson and Sharpton. It should be brought by all the people victimized by them over the years. Those two scum have promoted bigotry, racism and violence. Zimmermann must be living in fear because of the violent rhetoric that has been said against him. Even the Pipsqueak has chimed in from the White House. How can America abide having racists running free promoting racial hatred and violence? Also, why are deviants like Jackson and Sharpton able to get away with extortion?
The exploitation of the Zimmerman case has undoubtedly fomented much hatred toward whites within the black community. Young people listen to voices of anger within their own homes, on television and on the streets. Surely, it gives them a feeling of anger, resentment and surges of power that will exhibit in horrible behaviors such as in the cold blooded, senseless killing of Christopher Lane. The exploiters of race should be shunned by all media. Replace them with the voices of decency in the black community; those who will shame their own for lighting the flame this flame of evil.
FTA: As a first priority, Obama sent his "thoughts and prayers" to the family of Trayvon Martin. As to George Zimmerman and his extended family, still in hiding after a year and a half of death threats, Obama offered not a word of hope or encouragement. Nor did he rebuke those whose threats forced the Zimmermans into an internal exile.
How did such a person ever become president of the greatest nation on earth?
Sharpton, Jackson (who said yesterday, the murder of the 22 year old white student from Australia by 3 non-caucasians s/o, is "frowned upon", along with the agitaror-in-chief-obama ARE responsible for spreading the lies causing racial-hatred among their young and ignorant followers. Black on white attacks by obama´s "look-a-like-sons" are going on all across the country. The ONLY way we find out about them is by reading Drudge or Lucianne.com and a few others. The mafia-like protection of this corrupt administration is one of the many reasons "journalism" has turned into pure propaganda in this country. Detroit is coming our way. God help us.
We are getting the curtain pulled back on race relations in this country and it is not pretty. The truth is that our president has an agenda on this issue and that is to stir up racial division in order to consolidate democrat power. Obama made the most craven political decision when he stepped into the Trayvon Martin case. It was unheard of. Presidents don´t do this. However, Obama not once, but twice inserted himself on the side of Martin in direct opposition to the evidence. He did this purposefully. He knew what he was doing. He was, indeed, pushing this country toward racial unrest. Christopher Lane and Delbert Belton are direct results of Obama´s actions and there will be more just the way he intended. There is no other explanation for Obama´s actions. He did what he wanted to do, incite violence against whites. Any pushback from whites will be dealt with extreme governmental force. Everything is in place. He is waiting for the opportunity.
Has 0bama said anything yet about this killing? What about the killing of the baby in Georgia? What about Delbert Belton? Nope. He´s still traveling around on our dollar making a fool out of himself at high schools and colleges trying to make a case for the failed 0bamascare scam. God help America. What have we done to deserve an a@@h@@e like this for president?
right after hussien was "elected" there was an inident in a town here. A black yut committed a serious crime. When caught and questioned he replied that now that there was a black president he could do these things. the president would protect him. how right he was...
You know, when the whole Trayvon "tragedy" was being inflamed by the media and the WH, I had a feeling that it might backfire on them.
As a poster said yesterday, Zimmerman was right! And we all may wind up owing GZ a debt of gratitude as the catalyst that finally stops the PC privileged treatment of guilty black thugs and shines the light of truth on them and their leftist enablers.
It´s way past time to stand up to them, to hold them accountable and to take this country back to Equal Protection Under The Law.
Race hustlers Obama, Sharpton and Jackson sow and we reap... and weep. In our dysfunctional culture their message gets through to millions of ill-raised, feral teens who know so little, but do know they have license and justification to maim and kill. A license signed by the race hustlers. And now this morning, the outrageous and pitiful story of the Spokane WWII Vet beating and murder...
The only thing Zippy is NOT responsible for in this killing is pulling the trigger. It is estimated that between 8 to 9 million Republican leaning voters never showed up on 11/06/12. Thats the root cause.
Pat Buchanan stresses the way disproportionate numbers of black on white vs white on black crime. Attorney General Eric Holder was pontificating about America´s lack of guts, in his words, to have a real discussion on race. This was a shameless bluff because he knew better than most that, corrected for population size, black on white murder and rape vs white on black is in the neighborhood of forty to one. Now that´s an elephant in this American room.
- I do think that the news media will now finally start reporting (if still misinterpreting) these kinds of crimes now. Their considerable bias and corruption aside, they know a story that sells papers, pays for 30 second spots, and gets net clicks. With that forty to one ratio, you know these incidents happen all the time. The difference now is that they may now break through the MSM´s stone wall. Finally. And then we can have Holder´s little conversation.
How many of the 5 "woods" Edwards knocked out were reported by the msm? I would guess none just 5 consecutive "random" acts of violence by the same individual. One poster told me that a majority of blacks aren´t racist and that any discussion of a race war against whites is bs. I´m unaware that obama has ever criticized flash mobs attacking whites or the knock out game. If I´m wrong someone please correct me. Thank you. This kind of violence by blacks against whites will continue. It´s all considered part of reparations I guess.
Zero and the race hustlers are trying to bring about a revolution in this country. Exactly what they meant by "hope and change". They are guilty of doing exactly what they accuse the Tea Party of doing.
Where did that boy get that gun? Who is it registered to? Where did he buy his ammo? Is that part of the ammo that the DHS has been ordering by the millions of rounds since 2010? And regarding Fast and Furious - is the Obama Administration arming black gangs in America? I hate to wear a tinfoil hat, but I´m starting to see a pattern here and it´s very disturbing.
Who do they think is going to win the coming race war? Blacks are outnumbered by whites by about 5 to 1. And there is a huge amount of dislike for blacks in the Hispanic and Asian communities as well. Zippy, Holder, Sharpton et al need to take a very close look at the odds before they push their agenda any further.
#23 ~ looks like my refutation of the "peeps didn´t show up" arguments is getting through to folks.
The fact is we have about 90 million grown adults who are eligible to vote but who don´t register, and never vote!
Looks like somebody´s turned that into "X million Republican leaning" ~ which really can´t be imputed from that number.
Just about everybody who is registered actually votes in a Presidential race. That number will change from race to race based on two factors ~ the death rate among registered voters AND the seriousness of the voter registration drives mounted by each party.
The big population blip created by Baby Boomers is adding what seem to be unanticipated numbers to the normal death toll. And, it is, but the percentage by age is still pretty much the same as it´s been the last 40 to 50 years. This works out to about 1 million a year Republican, and over 1 million a year Democrat.
Best place to see it at work is the 2004 to 2008 period when Republicans simply didn´t engage in voter registration drives. W got 4 million more votes than McCain!
The TEAParty ran voter registration drives that kept up with the death rate (4 million people 2008 to 2012) and got an EXTRA 1 million registered ~ hence, Romney´s total exceeds that of McCain but falls short of Bush!
The Democrats got their britches scared off them in 2004 ~ normal growth rates didn´t yield them enough new voters to offset the Baby Boom death rate ~ so they started a major registration drive. They made up for the death rate and got 9 million more to the polls than the Republicans in 2008.
Leftists seem to know that they have to create a problem before they can rush in and ´fix´ it.
First...create an environment which is hostile to capitalism and then blame capitalists.
Second....commandeer the ´civil rights´ movement and transform it into a ´Hate Whitey´ crusade.
There is, still, a large contingent of reasonable, rational people in this country who are acting like adults, biding their time and waiting for this nightmare to pass like a summer tornado.....hoping that it does not kill too many and destroy too much.
But I´m moving closer every day to that camp of folks who have had enough of it.
I know when I´m being bullied.
The way of the schoolyard is the way of the world.
Anyone who´s tough enough to travel the 20 miles of dirt road required to get to my house had better show up with a smile and a damned good reason to be there.
All the prominent individuals--most especially, the president--who needlessly, cynically, and demagogically flogged the Trayvon Martin self-defense homicide into a cause célèbre for the racial grievance industry and black street gang members are to blame for whipping up the emotions of some very evil people, making retaliation murders against innocent non-blacks inevitable. Chris Lane, in the wrong place at the wrong time, would up on the "payback" side of Obama´s demagoguery.
Yes, because of the singular prominence of his position, Obama is most to blame for stirring up some soulless individuals who were just looking for an excuse to snuff out someone who didn´t look like themselves then laugh about it afterwards (as they did). What´s worse is that Obama, far from a brilliant individual but certainly not a stupid one, either, must surely have known that enflaming his impressionable supporters would end this way. No words of condemnation could be strong enough. It´s pure evil in a $2,000 suit.
First Black President? No! First Black Anything? No! First Mulatto President? Yes! “Let me be clear. Contrary to the way people often describe me, I am not America’s first Black president. I am America’s first Mulatto president. I am just as White as I am Black, and I’m proud to be both.” Remember when Obama said that? I don’t either.
The Civil Rights movement was not about equality but payback and reparations. I and my family have done nothing to keep blacks down in this country. I owe them nothing. And if Oprah, Obama , et al want a race war -good. Intelligence and skill are on our side.
Notice how they´re all hiding now? Obama and the rest are worth nothing. Their silence says all I need to know. We have an epidemic and the LSM is covering it up.
"The murder of the Australian man in Oklahoma was horrific, but not unique. Or even rare.
A similar episode of black mob violence happened just a few days ago in Memphis. And a few days before that in St. Paul. And before that in Burlington. And before that in Delaware, New Haven, Madison, Denver, Flint, Peoria, Springfield, Greensboro, Green Bay, and on and on and on.
This is a long list with more than 500 cases of recent black mob violence in more than 100 cities, big and small, many on video – and all unreported as being part of an epidemic of black mob violence throughout America."
If you act like an animal people will treat you like an animal. They are tatooed up with crooked hats shoplifting, stealing and killing. The whole race is a screw up. When they learn to get married and get a job before having kids they will be much better off. Now most of them are a menace to society and the race has failed.
One of the things that I like most about having a Republican in the White house is that my liberal friends suddenly have "standards". They actually place expectations on our President and they expect the man to meet those expectations. We, as a people, work together in some sense to make our country successful.
When a democrat is in the White House every liberal´s critical thinking skills take a four year vacation and I am left alone in the battle against stupid.
Divide and conquer is the strategy. Divide the people along economic and racial lines,............fan the flames via the MSM ( which is the collective PR arm of the current adminstration) and you bring down the USA. That´s always been the goal( agenda).
I sincerely hope #26 is being sarcastic. If not, they need to have a serious rethink and do some more research. Obama may have finally bit off more than he can chew with his stirring up of the race pot from the WH podium with his irresponsible remarks. Don´t even get me started with the corrupt media covering this all up.
Obama is what he is and there is no changing that fact. Since they say a majority of American voters elected Obama to another term in office there is nothing that can be done as far as he is concerned until his term of office ends as Obama will never change his views. The wimpy Republicans are never going to impeach the first black President unless he does something really egregious, like importing the Muslim Brotherhood into America and according them US voting rights, or maybe attempting to legalize the massive illegal alien population through some sort of executive order thus going around the Congress.
The only thing that the average person can do to safeguard their lives against being the victim of a sucker punch that could cause them grievous bodily injury, or being otherwise assaulted, or killed, is to stay alert at all times and stay away from the people who common sense shows are very prone to perpetrate such criminal action. Under the current political and social circumstances throughout the country you can´t count on law enforcement to protect you from becoming the victim of such a violent assault, and that will not happen in most cases until after the fact. You have to do what is necessary to protect yourself and your family.
The ultimate solution to this out of control racially charged situation is to never vote for liberal Democrats, no matter what they claim they will do for you during the build ups to future elections.
They sincerely want a war they could not win? Why? As an excuse to call in government intervention? Martial law? I know of not one black person (and I know a large number) who would be happy under that. None I know take well to authority. None.
Sixty years of the US government trying to pound into our heads that black and white is the same thing has been fruitless because it´s not true and never will be. The many blacks that I have known tend to live on a highly emotional level, some very good and some very bad. We forced them out of stone age Africa and expect them to be good little citizens of the 21st century. Ain´t gonna happen. We all know some highly capable and very good, smart black people. Unfortunately, there aren´t enough of them.
#42, if Zimmerman is having a respite, it is only a respite. I understand that Law & Order is doing a total propaganda variation hit piece on the case. Of course, their disclaimer will be that the plot is not based on actual events.
Let´s remember, it is the ideology of BO and his cohorts, his comrades, which defines their morality, behavior, attitudes. All you need to do is listen to Black Conservatives and you will hear clarity and rationality and often sheer brilliance.
We can NOT let the race- and fear-mongers, the divisive scoundrels, the hateful vengeance-seekers succeed in driving the wedge any deeper than they have already.
Leftists are ruthless, murderous, cruel. How deluded are those who bought --and buy-- into the smooth speeches of these demagogues!
If people cared about the truth, they would look for it. Sounds simplistic, but truth is powerful. For one thing, we would not be saddled with this deceiver as POTUS.
Let´s just say, there´s enough blood on enough hands to go around, and we have the Leftists to thank for it. The Leftists, the Liberals, the Democrats, the Progressives. Whatever you want to call the despicable people who have literally laid waste to the Black Community. Destroyed the Black Family.
And, yeah. 0b@$tard´s are dripping with his share of the blood, divisive cretin that he is.
But if you want to know where the blame for this nation of Leftists with blood on their hands should rest squarely, you have to go back to LBJ´s Great Society. He´s where it started It perked along for three or four generations, just sort of idling in third gear, getting a little worse all the time.
Then came the Mulatto Marxist and he kicked it into overdrive. The nation is more divided now than it was when Bull Connor --a DEMOCRAT, was sicing the attack dogs on people of color who only wanted to have lunch at dime store lunch counter. The Black Community is worse off now than its ever been under any president since LBJ began the destruction.
Dr. Ben Carson´s story needs to be heard more often. He should be scheduled at high schools and colleges to offset Obama´s venues of choice.
Maybe the good doctor could recruit some famous black athletes who have worked hard and are very aware of hard work in attaining their places on various teams to appear with him.
Successful black athletes don´t get placed in important positions on a team, as a rule, because of their skin color. The team´s owners have too much at stake for that kind of bad judgement on the part of a coach. Unfortunately, most young people only see the big $$$ that athletes are paid but they never understand the work that gets said athlete to those big dollars.
#68, part of the current effort is to stoke a verbal race war... to gin up the troops for a bigger turnout in the 2014 midterms than the DimWitz could normally expect... O-Bomber is very fearful of losing control of the Senate as well as not gaining the House... it would make his agenda DOA immediately... and lead to more movement in the direction of impeachment... he already knows he´s GUILTY!
And beyond the verbal skirmishes and the 2014 voting... A genuine shooting race war could allow Zippy to declare martial law and become a dicktater, possibly postponing the 2016 election cycle, perhaps indefinitely...
O-Bomber is a Muslim-sympathizing, Wannabe Kommie Dicktater who hates whites and uses his ugly thug Attorney General to destroy the rule of law in America...
Make sure we win the vote in 2014 and then move toward impeaching this lawless mulatto blastard...
President Obama keeps claiming that he had no knowledge of the Internal Revenue Service´s abusive muzzling of conservative groups. That line is hard to swallow given that his Treasury and IRS are back at it—this time in broad daylight. In the media blackout of Thanksgiving week, the Treasury Department dumped a new proposal to govern the political activity of 501(c)(4) groups. The administration claims this rule is needed to clarify confusing tax laws. Hardly. The rule is the IRS´s new targeting program—only this time systematic, more effective, and with the force of law. That this rule was meant to crack down on
President Obama isn´t the only Democrat who has had a difficult few weeks. The past month has also been particularly challenging for the woman who has all but declared her 2016 presidential campaign: Hillary Clinton. If this winter is any guide, to win the nomination Mrs. Clinton will have to master her two-step: sticking close to a president still beloved by the Democratic base—as she did this week, flying on Air Force One with Mr. Obama to South Africa for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service—while distancing herself from his unpopular policies. The former secretary of state knows that in order to win
Some Senate Republicans were raising red flags over an obscure procedural change in the just-announced budget deal, saying it could diminish their ability to block some future tax increases. But Senate Democrats, House Republicans and some other Senate Republicans said the concern appears to be unfounded, adding that the language is standard-issue, and leaves procedural safeguards in place. Democrats and several Republicans said GOP senators could still force any tax increase to clear 60-vote thresholds, although the budget deal’s language does remove one such barrier. A bipartisan think tank’s analysis also concluded that the budget deal’s language has been used by both parties
Congress took a step away from the confrontational politics and brinkmanship that has roiled the economy in recent years, as the House on Thursday passed a budget bill designed to avoid a government shutdown next month and relax spending limits in the next two years. The bill passed by a wide bipartisan margin, 332-94. The bill drew a strong bipartisan majority: 169 Republicans and 163 Democrats voted for the measure. Voting in opposition were 62 Republicans and 32 Democrats. Approval of the bill, which is also expected to pass the Senate next week, clears the way for a less-glamorous stage of budgeting
Regulation: That wave fast approaching the U.S. is not the tide coming in. It´s a wall of rules issued by the White House that will hit the economy and private lives with the force of a killer tsunami. The federal regulatory machine is coming not only for power plants, as the president promised while campaigning in 2008. It also has its eye on controlling private property. Earlier this week, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, which has a long history of highlighting Washington´s regulatory excess, said that during the first week of December, "95 new final regulations were published in the Federal Register," which
ObamaCare Fail: An urgent mass email to all Senate staff warns not to trust any confirmation from the D.C. health exchange and they may not have insurance come January. Why aren´t the rest of us being warned? We have chronicled the fact that ObamaCare, the increasingly unaffordable Affordable Care Act, has caused many with pre-existing conditions like stage-four cancer, the very people it was supposed to help, to lose their insurance at a critical point in their lives. For others, the skyrocketing premiums and often five-figure deductibles have made having insurance almost irrelevant. If you can´t afford the premiums or the deductibles,
Representative Paul D. Ryan’s eight terms in Congress have produced much political celebrity and Republican respect but just two laws bearing the Ryan name — a renamed post office and a modified excise tax on arrows like the ones he uses for bow hunting. Then on Tuesday he struck a budget deal with Senator Patty Murray, Democrat of Washington, that affixed a new label to the polished veneer of Mr. Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican: deal maker and, to some, traitor. With a modest, bipartisan blueprint on taxes and spending, Mr. Ryan is taking a risk he has previously shied away from, putting
The gangster state of North Korea became a nuclear power in 2006-2007, despite lots of foreign aid aimed at precluding just such proliferation — help usually not otherwise accorded such a loony dictatorship. Apparently the civilized world rightly suspected that, if nuclear, Pyongyang would either export nuclear material and expertise to other unstable countries or bully its successful but non-nuclear neighbors — or both. The United States has given billions of dollars in foreign aid to Pakistan, whose Islamist gangs have spearheaded radical anti-American terrorism. Since a corrupt Pakistan went nuclear in 1998, it has been able to extort such foreign payouts —
RUSH: Well, we may as well stick with this silly budget stuff, ´cause there are a couple of points to be made about it. But it, too, is just part of the daily script of the daily media narrative that´s coming out of Washington. This government´s gonna run whether they get a budget done or not; everybody knows it. Government isn´t gonna shut down. There isn´t any mood to shut down the government. If it does shut down, there´s not any mood to reform it, not right now, for a whole host of reasons. I was watching CNN during the break.
SEATTLE - Two Seattle veterinarians are pioneering the use of medical marijuana to treat pets. Dr. Sarah Brandon, co-founder of Canna-Pet, says medical cannabis can be used for many ailments plaguing your dog or cat. "Cannibanoids control inflammation to reduce pain from arthritis," she says. "They can help reduce anxiety." Brandon and her colleague Dr. Greg Copas launched Canna-Pet two months ago because citing that traditional pet medicines can have undesirable side effects. For example, Brandon says,"Anti-inflammatories can cause vomiting and Opioids can cause decreased appetite." These are reportedly common arguments to support the use of medical marijuana for humans. However, Brandon
PYONGYANG, North Korea — North Korea on Friday announced the execution of Kim Jong Un´s uncle, calling the leader´s former mentor a traitor who tried to overthrow the state. The announcement came only days after Pyongyang announced through state media that Jang Song Thaek — long considered the country´s No. 2 power — had been removed from all his posts because of allegations of corruption, drug use, gambling, womanizing and leading a "dissolute and depraved life." The state news agency KCNA said a tribunal examined Jang´s crimes, including "attempting to overthrow the state by all sorts of intrigues and despicable methods with

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats.

Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried
If you go down on the ice today you´re sure of a big surprise - a rare glimpse of 20 polar bears gorging on a bloody midnight feast. These photographs show a rare cluster of males, females and cubs all dining out on the remains of a whale carcass. They spent a night and a day stripping every last morsel from the mammoth sea creature. Usually Polar bears are solitary and would never tolerate being so close to each other. But with food in plentiful supply and bellies dragging on the floor they seem too lethargic to fight.Wildlife photographer Michal
