Was this note by a transgendered teen who committed suicide by walking in front of a tractor-trailer.

41% of transgendered people have attempted suicide, according to a survey with a sample size of 7,000. I hope the world shows more compassion to these people, who have it tough enough without others trying to tell them what gender they ought to be.

How you can tell that a rape report is false

When the Lying Liberal Media makes a big deal of it.

The Tawana Brawley case – a LIE
The Jamie Leigh Jones case – a LIE
The Duke Lacrosse case – a LIE
The UVA/Rolling Stone case – a LIE
That chick who carries around a mattress to get course credit at Columbia university – a LIE

The accused in these cases were white. But blacks actually comprise 48% of rapists, more than any other race.

Rape victims are 70% white. But, somehow, there doesn’t seem to be any mention in the “news”papers or TV “news” about an epidemic of black-on-white rape…

I wonder if this counts as a “micro-aggression” or something:

The time for peace has passed, indeed it never existed in this country. It doesn’t matter if [Michael] Brown robbed a convenience store, or even if he assaulted [Darren] Wilson.

While there are opportunists who have used the protests to their own end, the acts of looting, destruction of property, and violence directed towards state representatives is not only warranted, it is necessary.

The problem with the protestors’ violence in Ferguson is that it is unorganized. If the violence was to be organized, and the protestors armed – more so than the few that sparingly are – then the brunt of social pressures would not be laid onto middling proprietors, but unto those deserving the most virulent response of an enraged populace.

Courtesy of Sony, Google, and Microsoft. Kudos to them! Apple is conspicuously absent from the fray. I guess they don’t want people to “Think Different” after all:

According to people briefed on the matter, Sony had in recent days asked the White House for help in lining up a single technology partner — Apple, which operates iTunes — but the tech company was not interested, at least not on a speedy time table.

No matter. Apple customers like me can get the movie from Google Play or YouTube and watch it on the YouTube or Google Play apps on our iOS devices.

The protesters, who protest the fact that a police officer shot someone who was trying to shoot him, or the officer himself:

The officer also had a body camera issued to him at the start of his shift, but he was not wearing it. The car’s dash-camera was not activated.

There’s some more head-scratching stuff here. Apparently, the officer was conducting a “routine business check”. Can I get those for my home while I’m on vacation? I’m guessing not…

Also, he “confronted” “suspects”. Suspected of what? As far as I can tell from the video, the “suspects” had done nothing suspicious.

What if the Tea Party had held a rally where one of the speakers urged the crowd to “Burn this bitch down”? What if some Tea Partiers had then proceeded to riot and loot businesses?

What if some Tea Partiers had beaten a black man to death with hammers just for being black?

What if Tea Party protests were organized by a fringe extremist group that wants to overthrow the U.S. government?

What if Tea Party protesters had marched through New York City, yelling, “What do we want? Dead cops!”

What if one of the protesters had then shot two police officers? Can you imagine how President Obama and the Lying Liberal Media would react? He’d have issued one of his famous executive orders banning the Tea Party!

Thursday’s episode of Elementary featured two cops being shot by a lone gunman. Eerie how life imitates art.

An episode of the Lone Gunmen had terrorists flying airplanes into the World Trade Center shortly before 9/11:

A strong correlation between supporting amnesty and doing poorly in the GOP primary. Doesn’t bode well for liberal Republican Jeb Bush.

Will 2016 be 2008 with the parties reversed?

After all, 2012 was 2004 with the parties switched – Despite the failure of his signature initiative (Iraq for Bush 43, Obamacare for Obama), the president gets re-elected by 3 points by dividing the country and ginning up his base vote.

2014 was 2006 with the parties switched – the president’s party loses control of Congress because fatigue, and the unpopularity of his signature initiative, finally catch up with him.

So will 2016 be a repeat of 2008, with Rand Paul playing the role of Obama, Jeb Bush playing the role of Hillary Clinton, and Hillary Clinton playing John McCain?

Hands up, don’t shoot!

North Korea Goes Full Truther

In this site’s long and proud tradition of reprinting dispatches from KCNA, the North Korean “news” agency, here’s the latest gem:

It is just the U.S. imperialism, chief mastermind of evils, that poses a serious threat to humankind’s existence, said Kim Hyok Hwan, a department director of the C.C., DPRK Red Cross Society.

Referring to the fact that the deadly Ebola virus has been reported to be spread by the U.S., stunning the world community, Kim told KCNA:
As an aide to ex-President Reagan disclosed, the U.S. has been bent on the development of bio-weapons for its supremacy over the world. In the course it invented a progenitor of Ebola virus for the purpose of launching a biological warfare.

The U.S. Department of Defense paid 140 million dollars to a foreign pharmaceutical firm for research into Ebola virus and chose African countries as a bio-weapon testing ground, according to a Liberian professor.

The world media reported that Ebola cases broke out after some American members of the Medecins sans frontieres (MSF) toured Africa.
Russian, Singaporean and American newspapers criticized that the U.S. developed anti-Ebola virus vaccine through experiment on Ebola contagion, but has prevented this vaccine from being known to the world, only for its own interests.

As admitted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. imperialists have long conducted vivisections with fatal epidemics, inflicting untold sufferings on mankind.
AIDS, known as pest in the 20th century, was also developed by the U.S. imperialist homicides, and it still remains an incurable epidemic.
