DOJ Forces School District to Pay New Hire Muslim Teacher $75,000 For Denial Of Unpaid Three Week Hajj Leave

October 27th, 2011 No comments

 

From Floyd Reports

With unemployment mired above nine percent and new jobless claims hovering at 400,000 a week, the Obama administration needed a victory, and at last it has one. The Justice Department has forced a Middle American school district to pay a Muslim teacher $75,000 and implement a sensitivity training course throughout the district, after administrators refused to allow the new hire to take three weeks off for a trip to Mecca in 2008.

Safoorah Khan had held her job as a math lab instructor at McArthur Middle School in Berkeley, Illinois, less than a year when she asked unpaid leave to make hajj, the once-in-a-lifetime religious requirement that is one of the five pillars of Islam. The school district noted that she asked for the leave immediately before exams, was the only instructor in her department, and that the teachers’ union-brokered contract offered her infidel counterparts no comparable leave. Last December, the Justice Department filed suit against the district after the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reported her complaint. The DoJ argued administrators had violated Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, discriminating against Khan because of her religion.

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — A man who entered a Bellingham medical office with a severed limb later told medics he cut his own arm off with a self-made device.

Police said the man walked into a urology office in the Birchwood neighborhood at 11 a.m. Thursday. His right arm had been severed below the shoulder.

Employees from the clinic called for an ambulance and police.

Investigating officers searched a nearby homeless camp where the man was believed to live and found the severed arm and a self-made guillotine.

The arm was transported to the hospital in the hopes it could be reattached.

Part 2 – Can this presidential candidate be trusted?

Dear Mr. Romney, is this another Flip Flop?  

I certainly believe that it is.  How can such a well educated and seasoned politician such as yourself continue to play the American voters by taking both sides of the political fence?  

From CNSNews.com

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney says he is “110 percent” behind Ohio’s ballot measure that would limit union rights.

Romney on Wednesday said he supports Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s effort to uphold legislation restricting collective bargaining for public employees. Voters in Ohio are going to consider scrapping the law at the ballot box on Nov. 8.

A day earlier, Romney said he didn’t have a position on the measure while he was visiting Ohio.

Cain’s Staff in Good Company

October 27th, 2011 No comments

Much ado about smoking!  The press is all titillated by Herman Cain’s campaign ad:


CNN did a lengthy story about it last night.  (It was mildly amusing, but it profited from the work of some funny late-night TV comics.  Also David Letterman.)   This is ironic, since newscasters back in the olden days (back when newscasters had balls) smoked on the set.  Here’s Edward R. Murrow sporting his favorite smoldering accessory:

And it’s hardly unusual for political types to smoke, right?  I mean, you’ve got Boehner copping drags left and right:

And when Obama smokes a cigarette, it’s like awesome:

Obama has even been known to toke a doobster or two:

 Even little kids are in on it:

So we’ll ask again:  Why all the commotion?

Occupy San Francisco Leader Explains Why They Crap and Piss In Public

October 26th, 2011 No comments

It’s because they have a “human condition, it’s called we go to the bathroom.”  But if they were going to the bathroom, why are they crapping and pissing in the street?

Free Speech Is Not an OWS Value

October 26th, 2011 No comments

The Washington Examiner is running a story that further shows why the Occupy Wall Street crowd isn’t about freedom and bottom-up governance, but mob-enforced command and control.  Fester is shocked, shocked that a bunch of commies would falsely claim that they represent the common man as a means to score broad appeal!

According to the story, the OWS folks have demanded or implemented limitations on free speech and participation:

  • One OWS guideline says:  “Don’t assume gender.  When possible, go with gender-neutral pronouns.”
  • When discussing a “de-escalation committee,” occupiers “requested that the committee be diverse and specifically discouraged too much participation by white heterosexual males.”
  • During the discussion on the de-escalation committee, one man commented that “We are all God’s children.” Another occupier rebuked him, saying “Don’t mention God.  It makes me feel like I have to hide my agnostic beliefs.”

Seriously?  They want to get all up in your choice of pronouns?  Good luck with that, dipsticks.  And white, male heterosexuals — or anyone who’s admittedly religious — need not freaking apply.  How can they honestly claim they’re the 99% if they exclude the majority of the population?

Anyway, read the rest here.  Also, see our previous story about Occupy Atlanta, where the OWS folks shut out a Congressman from speaking to them and shouted down those dissenters who thought he should have his turn at the mic.

Not surprisingly, the Examiner also recounts an OWS “committee report,” which said that “protesters are reluctant to ‘help out’ with leadership, and often try to personally benefit from services others provide.”  And there you have it.  These people started out as freeloaders, and the stifling speech codes haven’t exactly motivated them.  What does that sound like to you?  Hint:  Starts with “c” and ends with “ommunism.”

 

“Hey Mister, That Swing’s For Kids!”

From The Times Herald

A Vallejo man was found in a child’s swing Saturday morning after reportedly
being stuck for about nine hours, police said.

At about 6 a.m., a groundskeeper of Blue Rock Springs Park heard a man
screaming when he arrived at work. He then called the police to investigate.

Upon arrival, police found a 21-year-old man stuck in a child’s swing, which
has two leg holes.

The man told police that he had been stuck in the swing since 9 p.m. Friday
after he allegedly made a $100 bet with his friends. He proceeded to lube
himself with laundry detergent to get into the swing, police said.

The friends then reportedly left him swinging through the night.

Won’t You Please Consider Sponsoring A Protester, Today?

Save the Protesters – Changing Lives Since Last Thursday

 

Save the Protesters is a new progressive charity begun for the express purpose of providing financial, emotional and educational support to Occupy Wall Street Protesters as they endeavor to fundamentally change America and the world through coordinated occupations of city parks and plazas.  For less than the price of a daily latte, you can provide a nurturing environment for  Occupy protesters where ever they may be.  An environment brimming with support, love and attention allows the protesters the freedom to continue their work on behalf of 99% of the global community.

 

Ms. Sally Soros, Celebrity Spokesperson For Save the Protesters, International

 

When protests strike throughout the country and around the world, Save the Protesters is there, bringing support  in the form of nourishing vegan meals, fresh cardboard boxes and tarps, much-needed STD and drug testing, and quality condoms and sanitary wipes.

So that protesters may continue their studies, our efforts also ensure that vital educational opportunities such as bongo and rhythmic dance lessons,  consensus hand signals, including twinkle variations, point of process, wind it up and more, are available without cost or obligation to recipients.

And you can rest assured that Save the Protesters does not permit any religious or moralistic bias to  influence our process.  Won’t you please take a moment to read the heartfelt, personal stories of a few of the Occupy Protesters below and see if you are not touched by their strength and desire to destroy capitalism?

Upon receiving your pledge, a Save the Protesters  introductory packet will be sent to you so that you may get to know “your” special protester.  Each OWS protester you choose to support will communicate with you via text messages, emails, skype twinkles, and tweets, so that you may track his or her progress and personally witness the fruits of your financial support.

* We ask that you do not contact your sponsored protester personally as he or she may be unstable.  Please remember that all correspondence be coordinated through Save the Protesters.

 

"B", a spunky protester, adorably full of piss and vinegar, has somewhat taken on the role of mother pit bull during the OWS protest. Her natural protective and territorial qualities have led many of the younger, less experienced protesters to seek comfort and guidance under her wing. Soon "B" will require new glasses and a dental cleaning, and without your support, she most likely will go without either.

 

“P” is an intelligent little fellow with big dreams. During his protest breaks, you will find him scanning for  pictures in whatever  newspaper scraps he can find. “P’s” dream is to undergo concensus and hand signal training so that he may one day meet the requirements to become an Occupy Protest leader. Books and educational opportunities can happen for protesters like “P” but only IF you dare to care. (many thanks to Urban Infidel for bringing “P” to our attention)

 

"T" is a delightful fellow who shows great leadership in the movement. OWS organizers anticipate big things coming from "T" and feel that with his can-do attitude, he could one day take a seat upon the OWS General Assembly. Your donation can help "T" make something good come from within.

As you can see, "R" is very hungry. He opens his mouth and begs for any vegan morsels that might be tossed his way. You can help "R" regain his dignity with just a small token of support in the way of a monthly cash donation. "R" is a natural leader in the OWS drum circle and wishes one day to teach Drum Circle to qualified university freshmen. Won't you please help make his dreams come true?

 

Twins, "A" and "B" share more than genetics, they share a passion for wealth redistribution! Because of a cardboard shortage, they have been forced to share a box meant for one. Even though their lack of material goods has not quenched their thirst for justice, two new cardboard boxes would make all the difference in their lives. Will you help?

As you can see, "K" has had some trouble walking and cannot move from point A to point B without special assistance. OWS Medical Services Collective explains that "K" will need intensive hot yoga and herb rehabilitation, as well as a new pair of yoga slippers, if he is ever to walk again. Will you choose to help "K" walk again on his own with your sponsorship or will you turn away?
