Tape this list of names to every assault rifle sold, every extended magazine bought. Post it on every gun store in America. The fact that these precious souls were stolen from us will forever be a hideous scar on the human race.

This planet is comprised of a multitude of cultures and vastly different heritages. We need to embrace the diversity present in America, not hate that difference.

By Tiya Miles, Special to CNN

(CNN) – In the documentary film “Black Indians,” a man who appears to be African-American recounts his delight at eliciting shocked looks from strangers when he launches into a conversation with his wife in the Cherokee language.

The man who tells this story is Cherokee as well as black and a member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. His is just one among thousands of examples that show diversity has always been a core aspect of African-American identity.

That diversity has been rich — from the moment when Africans from different tribes, cultures and language groups were captured as slaves and transported to North America to the present day, when African-Americans live in various regions and intermarry with…

UPDATE: Due to her concussion, Clinton will no longer testify before Congress about the investigation into the deaths of four Americans in the Sept. 11 Benghazi attack. The Hill reports:

Clinton will not testify as scheduled before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Jodi Seth, a spokeswoman for Chairman John Kerry (D-Mass.).The State Department told Kerry of Clinton’s concussion on Saturday morning, and, when he heard, Kerry insisted that she not attend the hearing.

“Senator Kerry was relieved to hear that the secretary is on the mend…

Saturday’s Potpourri: Reaction To Tragedy And Our First Lady


By Jueseppi B.

From Mr. Cagle 

 

 

 

The following comments are from my good friend, Mr. Angry Man. By that name alone, you can guess why he & I get along so well.

 

First on the Ambassador Susan Elizabeth Rice fiasco:

 

Ooops!; there it is.
That same old two headed monster. Racism and Envy. One red eye and one green.
It is painfully obvious to anyone paying attention that Ambassador Rice would make an excellent Secretary of State. Her record of service; her expertise; her intimate knowledge of foreign policy all say “This is the one”

 

I’m not sure that spending years in a North Vietnamese Prisoner of War camp qualifies John Kerry for the job. I just don’t see him as the man to fill Hillary’s shoes.

 

The fact that these Republican assholes continue to try to play the elder statesmen and cast The President in the role of the inexperienced kid in need of advice is just another example of the infuriating lack of respect they continuously show for My President.

 

From the day he took office some four years ago they have acted this way and worse. They are a shame to this country and their actions are deserving of good Bitch-Slapping. Yes; I am Pissed enough to give it to them myself; on national television.

 

Of course the reason they didn’t want this perfectly qualified person to get the job is that she is black. There is no other believeable reason. they know their charges against her were totally bogus. They know their attacks regarding Ben-Ghazi bordered on treason; especially considering that they are privy to the inner workings and are aware of the tactics normal to the intelligence community.

 

Well that’s the Racism head. The Envy? Why; they envy the Large penises of the Black men and the Ambassador would be a constant reminder that they (Racist Republican Fascist Murderers that they are); would never be able to impress her by shaking their tiny penises around the House Chambers as they so love to do. After all; the Ambassador isn’t Sarah Palin. Now SHE might find John Boehner’s Needle Dick a step up from what she is used to; I really can’t say.

 

 

Next Angry Man’s wife responds to The President’s remarks to Newton Connecticut:

 

It never fails to impress my wife how feeling Barack Obama is. You know it impresses me. But my wife’s comments are especially telling and especially true.

 

I came in from the back yard today to the news about Sandyhook. She said, “You should have seen the President commenting about the shooting; he had tears running down his face as he spoke about it.” I said I wasn’t surprized. She said, “I know but it never ceases to amaze me that he is willing to show his feelings to the public; you can tell he’s sincere. I have never seen a President actually shed tears like he has. Even when 9/11 happened; George W. Bush never showed any real emotion.

 

What sadness he did show always seemed put on; as though he really didn’t care. But you can see and feel that Obama really cares and really grieves about these people.” I said she was right although I think I remember Bill Clinton showing such emotions a time or two as well, Barack Obama is far and away the most decent, caring president we have ever had. She said, “Yes he is; and he is the only one who openly talks about his children all the time.

 

He always seems to mention his kids and his wife and how much he loves and cares for them. That really says something good about him to me. Any man who speaks the way he does; cries in public when horrible things happen to Americans and talks about his family as he does; is a good man. he’s not afraid to show his emotions or afraid he will be laughed at or made fun of and that says that he really cares and is really concerned.” I of course agreed with her completely.

 

Thank You Mr. Angry man & Wife.

 

 

You would be surprised at how many idiotic comments get sent to this blog, 99% of which get sent straight to trash because that is precisely what they are. Many attempt to tell me how gun deaths in America are mostly suicide. Now exactly how stupid is that? If guns were banned in America, we’d have less suicides….not really worth banning guns now is it?

 

If there ever was a case for stupidity, it’s when a gun nut NRA advocate attempts to defend the violent gun deaths in America by saying guns don’t kill people, people kill people……
