First time I agree with O’Reilly over Jon Stewart over white privilege in America. Stewart is wrong, O’Reilly is right.
Not to say that there isn’t discrimination – and there is. But discrimination and privilege is not the same thing. The same thing applies to male privilege. Just because one group does better doesn’t mean that they are the ones keeping the ones who don’t do well from doing well.
It ignores black people don’t like black people more than white people don’t like black people. There is only so much that white people can do to help black people be equal. The real change has to come from black people – how they choose to interface with the world =- and time to get over their ancestors being slaves. Every person on the planet has ancestors who were slaves.
Monica Lewinsky is blaming the bullies on the internet for bullying her. Doesn’t seem to grasp the concept that her own actions have consequences. The only reason anyone is even interested in her is because she gave Clinton a Lewinsky. If not for her Dubya would never have been president, no 17 trillion dollar debt, no Iraq war, no ISIS. But Nooooo … it’s the internet who is at fault.
If I had done what she did I’d change my name, dye my hair blonde, and try to hide from it rather than seek attention. But she’s still taking advantage of having sucked presidential root. Isn’t it time for her to take some responsibility for what she did to America? Maybe apologize to the Clintons, and America?
Dozens of suspected Nazi war criminals and SS guards collected millions of dollars in U.S. Social Security benefits after being forced out of the United States, an Associated Press investigation has found.
The payments, underwritten by American taxpayers, flowed through a legal loophole that gave the U.S. Justice Department leverage to persuade Nazi suspects to leave the U.S. If they agreed to go, or simply fled before deportation, they could keep their Social Security, according to interviews and internal U.S. government records.
Among those receiving benefits were armed SS troops who guarded the network of Nazi camps where millions of Jews perished; a rocket scientist who used slave laborers to advance his research in the Third Reich; and a Nazi collaborator who engineered the arrest and execution of thousands of Jews in Poland.
Wow! Who saw that coming? What’s next – equality for women?
Warrant canaries — which tech companies are using to tell people that the government is NOT using secret orders — are the new frontline in the legal fight over surveillance.
This ad, featuring clips of Mitch McConnell, Pat Roberts, and many other Republicans implies that austerity cuts to the CDC and NIH are responsible for the 2014 Ebola outbreak.
At a Vanity Fair event tonight Elon musk will unveil “the D and something else”. What could it be?
And here it is!
The Ebola patient in an isolation unit in a Texas hospital, Thomas Eric Duncan, has died, officials said today.
“It is with profound sadness and heartfelt disappointment that we must inform you of the death of Thomas Eric Duncan this morning at 7:51 a.m.,” the hospital said in a statement.
“Mr. Duncan succumbed to an insidious disease, Ebola. He fought courageously in this battle. Our professionals, the doctors and nurses in the unit, as well as the entire Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas community, are also grieving his passing,” the statement said.
Duncan, a Liberian man who had traveled to Texas to visit family, was the first person to contract the disease while in the U.S. and became the first person to die of the disease in the U.S.
Wait for the lawsuit.
The stepdaughter of Texas Ebola victim, Thomas Duncan, who called 911 and rode in the ambulance with the man she calls ‘Daddy’ has been told she can return to work, MailOnline can reveal.
Nursing assistant Youngor Jallah, 35, has been in ‘quarantine’ in her small Dallas apartment along with her husband, Aaron Yah, 43, and their four children ages 2 to 11 since Thomas Duncan’s devastating diagnosis last Monday.
MailOnline has reported that Mr Yah, also a nursing assistant, had been told he could return to work at the end of last week. Ms Jallah whose contact with Mr Duncan – who remains in a critical condition – was far more intimate and prolonged than that of her husband, told MailOnline on Monday: ‘The CDC came yesterday. They said I can go back to work but I do not know what I will do. I will not go back yet.’
The magazine Dallas Weekly had a real gaffe last week with one of the most poorly timed covers in memory. Just as the city is cleaning up and sterilizing the places where Ebola victim Thomas Duncan visited after returning from Liberia, the magazine published online their latest issue, featuring the sure to be infamous cover and headline ” ‘Taste of Africa’ Comes To Dallas.”
As reported to ECDC by Belgian authorities, on 2 September 2014, following a human error, 45 litres of concentrated live polio virus solution were released into the environment by the pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), in Rixensart city, Belgium. The liquid was conducted directly to a water-treatment plant (Rosieres) and released after treatment in river Lasne affluent of river Dyle which is affluent of the Escaut/Scheldt river. Belgium’s High Council of Public Health conducted a risk assessment that concluded that the risk of infection for the population exposed to the contaminated water is extremely low due to the high level of dilution and the high vaccination coverage (95%) in Belgium.
And if 95% of the population wasn’t vaccinated…?
Prospective students in the United States who can’t afford to pay for college or don’t want to rack up tens of thousands in student debt should try their luck in Germany. Higher education is now free throughout the country, even for international students. Yesterday, Lower Saxony became the last of seven German states to abolish tuition fees, which were already extremely low compared to those paid in the United States.
Yeah, this is Merry Olde England, but give it time to become law over here. Probably start with the podcasting licensing John and Adam keep saying is coming. Do it for the children!
Extremists will have to get posts on Facebook and Twitter approved in advance by the police under sweeping rules planned by the Conservatives.
They will also be barred from speaking at public events if they represent a threat to “the functioning of democracy”, under the new Extremist Disruption Orders.
Theresa May, the Home Secretary, will lay out plans to allow judges to ban people from broadcasting or protesting in certain places, as well as associating with specific people.
The plans — to be brought in if the Conservatives win the election in May — are part of a wide-ranging set of rules to strengthen the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy.
