Combine the following:
-Soft bigotry of low expectations
-Fear of terroristic threats
-Confusing the religion Islam with being a “race”
And you get self inflicted Dhimmi status in western media
“Christianity gets less sensitive treatment than other religions admits BBC chief
He suggested other faiths have a ‘very close identity with ethnic minorities’
But added that religion as a whole should never receive the same ‘protection and sensitivity’ in the law as race
Revelation; BBC director-general Mark Thompson has claimed Christianity is treated with far less sensitivity than other religions because it is ¿pretty broad shouldered
BBC director-general Mark Thompson has claimed Christianity is treated with far less sensitivity than other religions because it is ‘pretty broad shouldered’.
He suggested other faiths have a ‘very close identity with ethnic minorities’, and were therefore covered in a far more careful way by broadcasters.
But he also revealed that producers had to consider the possibilities of ‘violent threats’ instead of polite complaints if they pushed ahead with certain types of satire.
Mr Thompson said: ‘Without question, “I complain in the strongest possible terms”, is different from, “I complain in the strongest possible terms and I am loading my AK47 as I write”. This definitely raises the stakes.’
But he added

The Wall Street Journal reports in an article Roads to Ruin: Towns Rip Up the Pavement that communities across the USA are allowing paved roads to fall back into gravel paths – our once great nation is beginning the slide into the dystopian state that Ayn Rand predicted in her novel, Atlas Shrugged
a sampling of the article -
Paved roads, historical emblems of American achievement, are being torn up across rural America and replaced with gravel or other rough surfaces as counties struggle with tight budgets and dwindling state and federal revenue. State money for local roads was cut in many places amid budget shortfalls.
In Michigan, at least 38 of the 83 counties have converted some asphalt roads to gravel in recent years. Last year, South Dakota turned at least 100 miles of asphalt road surfaces to gravel. Counties in Alabama and Pennsylvania have begun downgrading asphalt roads to cheaper chip-and-seal road, also known as “poor man’s pavement.” Some counties in Ohio are simply letting roads erode to gravel.

Tonight is one of two times a year PBS is worth watching.
A Capitol Fourth is on TV tonite minus maestro Eric Kunzel, who
passed away a few months ago.
If you can’t watch thus and be excited to be an American, you don’t
have a pulse!
Set your DVR for the show and go to your local fireworks program.
Preferably one at a military base. Then watch a Capitol Fourth
Darren Wesley Huff, a member of the Oath Keepers, and filer of a “birther” lawuit seeking to remove Barack Obama from office due to lack of citizenship ran afoul of his own big mouth and small vision in starting a revolution in Sweetwater, Tennessee. Seems that Mr. Huff according to the FBI Criminal Complaint, figured that it was more than reasonable to round up a posse of like minded individuals and “take over the city” which has arrested a friend of Huffs – Walter Francis Fitzpatrick – who had tried to perform a citizens arrest on the Monroe County Grand Jury Foreman who had denied the birther lawsuit.
Huff’ made no effort to hide his plan and apparently told everyone he came across about his plan, including a bank teller (who told the FBI), the FBI agents who visited him at his home, and the cops who stopped him on his way to the town! What a dolt!!!
My favorite part – his Georgia license plate was IM LIT
Way to think big – taking over Madisonville TN… newsflash – the problem is in Washington DC. not rural TN~
I’ve uploaded the the video that You Tube won’t let you see to my you tube account. Hit your account with it too – flood you tube!
Copyright attorneys also warned us that given our clearly lawful use of the song We are the World, if anyone wished to silence our voices, they wouldn’t target us. Instead they would target YouTube. It is YouTube’s standard practice to remove any material that they receive even the flimsiest threat for because the company wishes to avoid all litigation.
Strange that a search of “Song Parody” on youTube reveals 858,000 hits. Most are hit song parodies flat out stealing the underlying music and even video from the musician. But somehow or another, those are ok – but a song by Jews poking fun at the Gaza flotilla’s true intentions MUST BE BLOCKED! The top hit is a Shakira song with over 32 Million views, ext a Britney Spears video with 29 Million, Katy Perry with 28 Million, and Lady Gaga with 27 Million views. And I am supposed to believe that those song parodies are fine with exposure of nearly 10 times the viewership and years of availability on youtubes site, while a Jewish parody with 3 million views and a week of exposure on youtube is wrong? I call Bull$hit on this
Two things I need you to do
2) Email YouTube and Demand that all song parodies be blocked – email them about every single individual song – a huge driver of their content is the music video – if they won’t protect free speech and fair use, then they should apply their rules EQUALLY across the board -there nearly a million song parodies waiting – get to work dear readers!
I received a copy of an Service Employee International Union (SEIU) job posting recently and was truly stunned by the job requirement description. Remember – this is the Union which BEATS people who oppose them. Bold section of the description are mine. Its any one’s guess as to what they mean by developing innovative financing and building sustainable business. – maybe this is just the thug in charge of leading the purple people into banks for aggressive protests – like this or this or this.
I ask again how a Union with only 2 Million people – less than half a percent of our nations population carries so much weight and power.

These people are evil and have more interest in power than the little people they claim to love so much. What self respecting person would wprk two year to get an MBA and then go communist/socialist. The B school should demand their sheepskin back from the a$sclown who takes this job.

Anthem BCBS of California to raise premiums by 39% in 2011!
In an attempt to plug into populist anger against high insurance costs, US Health and Human Services Cabinet Secretary Kathleen Sebilus accidentally proves that when a company has monopoly power, its prices are not held down by market pressures. Any chance that Obama, the Constitutional Scholar, would will be willing to consider using the Commerce Clause to open states up to interstate competition for health insurance? Don’t count on it.
“These extraordinary increases are up to 15 times faster than inflation and threaten to make health care unaffordable for hundreds of thousands of Californians, many of whom are already struggling to make ends meet in a difficult economy,” Sebelius wrote to Anthem Blue Cross President Leslie Margolin.
While it was unclear what, if any, steps the U.S. health department could take, Sebelius said she was “very disturbed” and was “closely monitoring” the Anthem situation. State authorities in California — the nation’s most populated state — are also investigating the reported rate hike.
