It’s in the transcript as “Audio Gap” (Do a page find for it in your browser, as its a long page).
I watched it live, so let me paraphrase. Governor Romney believes that the solution to gun crime is people getting married before they have children and that single parenthood dooms children. Therefore, less gun violence.
He then did some soft shoe and and yelled “THE ARISTOCRATS!”
Best debate synopsis of the morning.
Today in What The Entire Fuck?!: Mississippi Schools Sending Kids To Prison For Misbehaving In The Classroom
The Department of Justice on Friday uncovered a so-called “School-to-Prison pipeline” in Mississippi, where teachers and principals are shipping off children into the criminal justice system for infractions as small as a dress code violation.
Schools in the city of Meridian, MS, have an established practice of sending students, particularly black and disabled students, to prison for minor disciplinary problems — in clear violation of the Constitution. As ABC reports, that DOJ is claiming that the schools, which protect against “abuse of government authority in legal proceedings and fairness of due process rights,” are violating the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments.
Also in the findings letter the Civil Rights Division alleges that “Lauderdale County and the Youth Court Judges violate the Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments by failing to provide children procedural due process in the youth court. Lauderdale County, the Youth Court judges, and the Mississippi Division of Youth Services violate the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments by failing to provide children procedural due process rights in the probationary process.”
I posted this a few weeks ago….I really was hoping it would get more notes.
I’m happy to see this making the rounds again, because this. shit. is. fucked. up.
this is the school-to-prison pipeline.
And in your chicken, it seems…
Its all about connections. Connections between arsenic used in chicken feed for pest control and to make the meat pink. Arsenic used as pesticide on cotton crops. Arsenic in chicken poop being spread on fields. Connections to a breed of rice developed specifically to be resistant to arsenic.
And plants being what plants are, the rice takes up the arsenic as if it were another micronutrient and concentrate it in the seed we eat.
The origins of this Mother Jones story is Consumer Reports. CR is recommending adults eat no more than 2, one quarter cup servings of rice per week, and children should eat no more than about 1/3 cup per week.
When in the world are we going to learn that you can’t dump poison into the environment without harming ourselves?
WHAT? I eat WAY more rice than that. So, I’m going to die soon? Is that what you’re trying to tell me? Of rice poisoning? Well, that figures.
Earlier this year, Josée Landry and Michel Beauchamp of Drummondville, Quebec planted the front yard of the future: a gorgeous and meticulously-maintained edible landscape full of healthy fruits and vegetables. Now they’re being ordered by town officials to remove most of their gardens (town code states that a vegetable garden can’t occupy more than 30% of the area of a front yard) in the next two weeks to make their yard conform with newly harmonized town code. Front yard kitchen gardens are not the problem; they’re part of the solution to healthier and more sustainable communities.
This would be illegal in my town too. Yet, I am entirely envious of it’s beauty. It makes my garden look like a wild bramble patch.
You all might be wondering what I’m talking about and it kills me to bring myself to say it but I cant hide my true self any longer. I like to rub mayonnaise on my body to feel whiter as I listen to the bag pipes cd I bought at some small Irish fair as I gently rub my goats shaven body. Im not currently at the time seeking medical attention for this even though its been recommended. I’m sorry I deceived you all.
AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
“Plunge them in an up and down motion.” (?!)
OMG, I’ve never seen such a well behaved chicken.
oh, man, this is classic!
