HELP!! Hillary won't leave my wallet alone

UPDATE:
Clinton: $5,000 for Every U.S. Baby



WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that every child born in the United States should get a $5,000 "baby bond" from the government to help pay for future costs of college or buying a home.

Clinton, her party's front-runner in the 2008 race, made the suggestion during a forum hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus.

"I like the idea of giving every baby born in America a $5,000 account that will grow over time, so that when that young person turns 18 if they have finished high school they will be able to access it to go to college or maybe they will be able to make that downpayment on their first home," she said.

The New York senator did not offer any estimate of the total cost of such a program or how she would pay for it. Approximately 4 million babies are born each year in the United States.

Oh -- and the DIMocrats are going to nominate her.

Hey -- Hillary -- since your "Universal Health Care" includes illegal aliens, does the $5,000 go for their little "Anchor Babies" too? ... YOU DUMB SNATCH!!!!

Tell ya what -- I'll go for it if you give me the $5000 plus interest from the day I turned 18 -- DEAL? Hell -- let's just all go for self-interest and fuck the country -- just like ALL the libs ... right, HILLARY??

Nice haircut, jackass

From the J-Walk Blog:

I don't think I could eat even one ounce: Bertoletti captures 'world grits' title.

Yankees beat out Southerners for the top spots in what was billed as the first World Grits Eating Championship at Louisiana Downs on Saturday.

Pat Bertoletti, a mohawk-sporting chef from Chicago, gulped down 21 pounds of buttery, goopy blandness in 10 minutes to win $4,000.

The grits were presented in 2-pound trays, each about 8 inches by 6 inches and 1 inches deep, said Ryan Nerz, a spokesman for Major League Eating. He said he half expected to see Bertoletti, one of the top gobblers on the competitive eating circuit, topple over.

Bertoletti, in a statement, said the competition "tested our stomach capacity like no other."

21 pounds? FUCK ME TO TEARS!!! Even my buddy, JF would be doomed in that contest ... unless .... unless ... he might have a chance if they let him put some ketchup on 'er.

Liberal jackass gets sued

Federal judge orders Murtha to testify in Haditha defamation case.

A federal judge has ordered Rep. Jack Murtha (D-Pa.) to testify in a defamation case related to the deaths of Iraqi civilians in the town of Haditha in 2005, according to the Associated Press.

Murtha, a former Marine. accused Marines of "cold-blooded murder and war crimes'' during the Haditha incident. Frank Wuterich, a Marine sergeant involved in the incident, has sued Murtha for libel and invasion of privacy over his comments.

According to AP, U.S. District Judge Rosemary M. Collyer wants Murtha to explain why he made this statement and any documents he has related to the incident.


That's right, Murtha, you lowdown JACKASS -- keep taking money from the slip & fall lawyers like the rest of the libs. Now a REAL lawyer is coming for your big-assed-mouth. I hope you have to pay and pay and pay. Sure looks like good thinking on your part -- you know -- refusing to apologize for your idiotic and unpatriotic statements -- uh -- but of course, these libs ALWAYS SUPPORT THE TROOPS -- Right?
WAY TO SUPPORT THE TROOPS, INTERNAL ENEMY.

After a bit of reading, it seems he'll prolly claim "speech and debate" clause -- but that shouldna apply when "commiting a crime" (and, last I checked, defamation is a crime) ... but we shall see ... in the meantime, I just love it that he has to "deal with it."
Here's more if you care:

Too little, Too late, jackass

Duke Apologizes to Lacrosse Players (Now that it's safe.)


DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke University President Richard Brodhead apologized Saturday for not better supporting the men's lacrosse team and their families after three players were falsely accused in last year's highly publicized rape scandal.

Brodhead, speaking at the university's law school, said he regretted Duke's "failure to reach out" in a "time of extraordinary peril" after a woman accused three players of raping her at a March 2006 party thrown by the team.

"Given the complexities of this case, getting the communication right would never have been easy," Brodhead said. "But the fact is that we did not get it right, causing the families to feel abandoned when they were most in need of support. This was a mistake. I take responsibility for it and I apologize for it."

Brodhead spoke at a school-sponsored forum on legal and ethical issues common to high-profile cases, and he received a standing ovation following his speech. He left afterward and school officials said he would not be available for further comment.

"Duke needed to be clear that it demanded fair treatment for its students," he said. "I took that completely for granted. If anyone doubted it, then I should have been more explicit, especially as the evidence mounted that the prosecutor was not acting in accordance with the standards of his profession."

Brodhead also said the school could have done more to show that some members of Duke's faculty who were openly critical of the lacrosse team did not speak for the university as a whole. (No shit - note to yourself cuz those loudmouth liberals will do it again -- and soon.)

Duke has reached private settlements with Pressler, now the coach at Division II Bryant in Rhode Island, as well as the three cleared players and a teammate who was not indicted but accused a professor of giving him a failing grade because he was a lacrosse player.

Good -- I hope they got enough money to ensure no raises for those "professors" for years and years to come.

Scam Warning !!


Thanks ma, it's the thought that counts

From Bits and Pieces:


No Newt is Good Newt ??

Used to be the Speaker of the House -- One of the smartest guys in Washington (not saying a whole lot there) -- The Klown used to LOVE this guy -- Not so much anymore -- I still like him but he's said some real dumb things lately.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will not run for president in 2008 after determining he could not legally explore a bid and remain as head of his tax-exempt political organization, a spokesman said Saturday.

"Newt is not running," spokesman Rick Tyler said. "It is legally impermissible for him to continue on as chairman of American Solutions (for Winning the Future) and to explore a campaign for president."

Gingrich decided "to continue on raising the challenges America faces and finding solutions to those challenges" as the group's chairman, Tyler said, "rather than pursuing the presidency."

Is this guy retarded - or just a liar?

From Newsbusters:


"I would defy anyone to label Maureen Dowd by party affiliation or ideology. I've known her and worked closely with her for 20 years and I can't tell you the answer to either one" -- Andrew Rosenthal, editorial page editor of The New York Times.

"The news report produced by the news staff of The Times is the heart and soul of this newspaper. Its mission is to bring our readers the best reported, best written, most carefully edited and most attractively produced report on paper and on the Internet, founded on the principle that the role of the newsroom is to provide a dispassionate accounting of events, free of political or ideological coloration." (HAHAHAHAHA)

Andy's gonna be at the Laff Shack all week. Don't forget to tip your waitress.

"We are passionate opponents of all forms of authoritarian behavior by the federal government. "

This from the paper that would impinge on citizens' Second Amendment rights, tell them where to smoke, what to drive, what not to eat, make it impossible for many to have their children educated in accordance with their values, and use government power to regulate virtually every aspect of life and take away roughly half of everything citizens earn.

What a JACKASS!!!

I Love Ann Coulter -- Usually


Superhero Amnesia-fighting Klown

Mostly from Michelle Malkin:

Remember this? -- When, in South Carolina those two "naive kids" were caught with "leftover fireworks from the 4th of July" (pipe bombs) in their trunk? (And CAIR "Flying Imams" jumped to their defense)

An Islamic community leader from Tampa, Fla., who’s been in touch with the families of the two detained college students, told The Post and Courier that Megahed and Mohamed are not troublemakers and that they were simply on a weekend trip to North Carolina.

Ahmed Bedier, executive director of the Tampa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a civil rights organization for Muslims, said family members have told him they think the materials were leftover fireworks Megahed kept in his trunk since July 4.

“Both of them are really naïve kids,” Bedier said.

Have you heard anymore about it? Hmmmm? Has the liberal mainstream media kept you up to date on this? The last I heard was the media telling me that the kids were naive and just on vacation with leftover fireworks in their trunk.

Well -- here's some "update" for you.

Speaking later from Cairo, Mohamed’s father, Abdel Latif Sherif, said his son is being framed.

“This was created and put on his computer to blame him,” Sherif said. “I can take a computer and put anything on it. They are making this up to make him look bad.” (HAHAHAHA)
------------

A laptop computer deputies found when they pulled over two University of South Florida students in South Carolina contained a video made by one of the men showing how to use a toy to detonate a bomb remotely, a federal prosecutor said Friday. (It was also on youtube)

On that video, the student, Ahmed Mohamed, said the detonator could “save one who wants to be a martyr for another day, another battle,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Hoffer said.

The prosecutor said that video was posted by Mohamed on YouTube, a popular Web site.
----------------------------
When investigators analyzed the computer, they found that the last-viewed images showed Qassam rockets, which are used by Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Also on the computer were videos of discussions of martyrdom and videos showing the firing of M-16 rifles…In the trunk, deputies found four small sections of PVC pipe, at least three of which were stuffed with a “potassium nitrate explosive mixture” of potassium nitrate, Karo syrup and kitty litter, Hoffer said. He said the kitty litter served as a binder to keep the substance from coming out of the pipes, which were not capped. (Yes -- that's very common for fireworks -- all us Americans use that.)

Investigators also found a container of gasoline, 20 feet of safety fuse and an electric drill, which Hoffer said could be used to drill holes in the pipe so fuses could be attached.

“Obviously, that raised the hackles of law enforcement in South Carolina,” Hoffer said. “That’s why we’re here.”
------------------------
The prosecutor said that when deputies questioned Megahed, he initially denied knowing about “these rockets or fireworks in the trunk.” But when both defendants were put in the back seat of a patrol vehicle, their conversation in Arabic secretly was recorded, Hoffer said.

A translation summary of the recording shows Megahed asking about what happened to the explosives, Hoffer said, which the prosecutor said shows Megahed was aware of what was in the trunk. The car, Hoffer said, was registered to Megahed’s brother.
------------------------
Oh (back of hand across forehead) -- those poor, poor, naive students on vacation.

NY’s Democratic Governor Hot on Drivers Licenses for Illegals

Last week NY Governor Eliot Spitzer(D) announced that the state would no long require proof of citizenship or legal residence to get a drivers license. This week, county clerks who issue the licenses in NY voiced concern as did NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

"Many of us think the whole idea is crazy and ill-fated," said Rensselaer County Clerk Frank Merola. "I myself will not process any driver's license renewal or driver's license verification for someone who cannot prove legal status."

The Democratic governor's decision comes as the Department of Homeland Security is pushing all 50 states to tighten their identification standards. Merola said Spitzer's approach "is going just the opposite way" as the federal government.

Bloomberg said Wednesday that the city's lawyer "does believe that in fact this would make New York's state driver's licenses ineligible to be used to get on an airplane. People would need other form of identification, generally a passport, and that would be a very big problem."

Spitzer replied with some of that hyper logic liberals are always claiming they suffer from by saying it’s ‘morally wrong’ to oppose his plan.

Thanks to Spitzer things will be easier for illegal aliens but actual citizens will have to find a new way to get acceptable ID to do basic things like get on an airplane or enter a federal building.

Effing IDIOT.

Biden the idiot

Joe Biden, U.S. Senator and candidate for President (1988). Plagiarism. He withdrew from the 1988 presidential race after being discovered "delivering, without attribution, passages from a speech by British Labor party leader Neil Kinnock... a serious plagiarism incident involving Biden during his law school years; the senator's boastful exaggerations of his academic record at a New Hampshire campaign event; and the discovery of other quotations in Biden's speeches pilfered from past Democratic politicians." He's still a Senator, and back in the race for 2008.

Dan Rather condemns reporting sans facts

Oh -- the ironing is delicious.



Katie Couric, whose newscast is mired in third place, also slammed Rather for his "60 Minutes II" report questioning George W. Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard in the 1970s.

The report, which aired just before Bush sought reelection in 2004, was discredited - and led to Rather's eventual ouster from CBS News.

"There were things in there that were quite egregious in terms of how it was reported," Couric said of the report.

"And sloppy work is sloppy work."

"I don't believe Ms. Couric knows all the facts," Rather told The Post yesterday.

Really, Dan? And since when did you start giving a good god-damn about the "facts?"

I do hope you win your 70-Million lawsuit though -- since CBS and the other networks have been in bed with the "slip & fall" lawyers for 30 years. They never thought their little pets would turn on them, did they. HAHAHAHA - JACKASSES.


Heartwarming story

Nasty cough, nasty run-in with the law
Thomasi McDonald, Staff Writer

MORRISVILLE - When Morrisville police officer Chris Gill handed him a ticket, Kent Kauffman coughed. Next thing Kauffman knew, Gill was charging him with assault on a government official.
Gill contends Kauffman intentionally coughed on him three times. According to Gill's report, Kauffman looked into the officer's eyes before "hacking" in his face, Morrisville spokeswoman Stacie Galloway said Wednesday.

Kauffman acknowledges that he coughed two or three times from the window of his Dodge minivan Tuesday but said it was toward Gill's waist.

"He says I coughed in his face," Kauffman said. "But that would only work if he had a 4-foot-long face."

Kauffman said that Gill cuffed him and threw him into the side of the patrol car, and that he ended up on the ground.

"It knocked the wind out of me," he said. "He kept yelling at me to get up. I told him, 'I can't move, man, I'm sick.' "
More here:

Now you look here, you wise-ass little shit ... when I pay for this cop to go out and do his duty, I don't expect for him to have to tolerate fuckwits like you coughing on him ... capisce? I hope he loosened one of your teeth taking you to the ground. If you'd have gotten on the ground (or stopped resisting) when he told you to, you wouldn't have gotten "the breath knocked out of you."

As far as I'm concerned, you've watched one-too-many episodes of "Lefty-TV." Seriously, the cop was just doing his job -- take it up with your elected representatives if you're trying to smuggle cigarettes into Tennessee.

I love it when I'm watching cops and get to see them smear some punk's face into the asphalt. I wish they could turn the dogs on them more. Someone should figure out how to really inflict some pain (legally, of course) on these fuckers when they're running from my duly appointed representatives.

Clamp-down on shitstain cigarette smokers

Cigarette surveillance program begins today

NASHVILLE — Starting today, state Department of Revenue agents will begin stopping Tennessee motorists spotted buying large quantities of cigarettes in border states, then charging them with a crime and, in some cases, seizing their cars.

Tennessee’s cigarette tax went from 20 cents per pack to 62 cents per pack effective July 1. All eight states that border Tennessee have lower tax rates, meaning smokers can save up to 45 cents per pack — $4.50 for a 10-pack carton — by purchasing out of state.

Rep. Stacey Campfield, Republican-Knoxville, said he sees inconsistency in the enforcement program.

“This administration has been very willing to turn a blind eye to illegal aliens pouring into our state, yet, when a natural Tennessean brings a couple of cartons of smokes across the state line, they want to arrest them,” Campfield said.
That's right, shitstain smokers -- we don't care a lick about illegal aliens -- you just pay us for being a shitstain ... or we're coming for you and your car.

"As an academic myself"

I heard him say the words "as an acedemic myself" in his speech at Columbia. These guys revere "academics" ... and that phrase is very common ... cripes, I even heard a guy say it on "To catch a predator" when they caught some knucklehead who was wearing a turban ... cracked me up.

Anyway -- here's the "academic" in his own words.

"In Iran, we don't have homosexuals, like in your country. ... We don't have that phenomenon ... I don't know who has told you we have it."

Another one a few weeks ago:


President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has sought to justify his confidence the United States will not attack Iran, saying the proof comes from his mathematical skills as an engineer and faith in God, the press reported on Monday.


Ahmadinejad told academics in a speech that elements inside Iran were pressing for compromise in the nuclear standoff with the West over fears the United States could launch a military strike.

"In some discussions I told them 'I am an engineer and I am examining the issue. They do not dare wage war against us and I base this on a double proof'," he said in the speech on Sunday, reported by the reformist Etemad Melli and Kargozaran newspapers.

"I tell them: 'I am an engineer and I am a master in calculation and tabulation.

"I draw up tables. For hours, I write out different hypotheses. I reject, I reason. I reason with planning and I make a conclusion. They cannot make problems for Iran.'"

Anyway -- the deal is, these idiots toss the word "academic" around like a hackey-sack when they're trying to get some respect. Listen for it, now that you know.

Amnesia spreads to Russia


MOSCOW (AP) - Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev warned Wednesday against whitewashing the crimes of dictator Josef Stalin, stressing that Russia cannot move forward without facing the truth about its bloody past.
In words that appeared aimed at President Vladimir Putin, Gorbachev also emphasized the need to pursue democracy.

His remarks, less guarded than usual, came amid growing concern among Russia's marginalized liberals that Putin's government is recasting Stalin's legacy to justify its own increasingly tight control.

The Stalin era is being portrayed as a "golden age," said Gorbachev, whose 1980s "glasnost" campaign as the last Soviet president prompted stunning revelations about Stalin's murderous policies.

"We must remember those who suffered, because it is a lesson for all of us—a lesson that many have not learned," Gorbachev said at a discussion marking the 70th anniversary of the bloodiest year of Stalin's Great Terror.

"It is impossible to live in the present or build long-term plans for the future if the disease of forgetfulness afflicts the country and society, or at least certain sections of it," he said.

Rather than reckoning with one of the most traumatic episodes in Russian history, scholars and activists said during the discussion at Gorbachev's charitable foundation and think tank, Putin's government is reshaping that legacy for its own purposes.

"It's not just forgetfulness, not just a lack of cultural memory—what's happening is a massive attack aimed at revising our memory," said Irina Shcherbakova of Memorial, a prominent non-governmental group dedicated to investigating Stalin's repression.

As one of the signs that Stalin's crimes are being swept under the rug, she said a teacher's manual that suggests his actions were justified by the need to modernize the economy is being pushed on high schools nationwide.

"Textbooks today are aimed not to ensure the memory (of Stalin's abuses), but to push this memory to the distant periphery of the consciousness," said Arseny Roginsky, also an official at Memorial.

Hmmm -- sounds familiar.

Also - notice their condescending use of the word "education" on the cover. Yes -- now that he thinks like they, he's been "educated." God these "reporters" are disgusting.

Special conditions placed on Vick after positive marijuana test

A urine sample submitted by Michael Vick has tested positive for marijuana, and as a result he'll have tighter restrictions on his freedom.

The test was taken on Sept. 13. Because of the positive test, federal court probation officer Patricia Locket-Ross, who is assigned to Vick, asked Judge Henry Hudson to place special conditions on Vick's release, which include refraining from use or unlawful possession of a narcotic drug or other controlled substance. He was placed under pretrial release supervision by U.S. Magistrate Dennis Dohnal in July.
More here:

HEY -- GANGSTA-BOY -- FUCK YOU!!! TORTURE SOME MORE DOGS, POT-SMOKING JACKASS.

The new ruling means Vick must submit to any method of testing at any time. Methods of testing could include urine testing, the wearing of a "sweat patch," a remote alcohol testing system and/or any form of prohibited substance screening or testing.

Vick must also participate in a program of inpatient or outpatient substance therapy and mental health counseling if the pretrial services officer or supervising officer deem it appropriate.

Vick is also now restricted to his residence every day from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. or as directed by the pretrial services officer. The home confinement will include electronic monitoring.

Vick pleaded guilty in August to a federal dogfighting charge. He is set to be sentenced on Dec. 10.

It's against the law for landlords to discriminate based on the color of a person's skin. But can they reject you because of what's on your skin?

Some San Antonio apartment complexes are refusing to rent to people with tattoos and body piercings. News 4 WOAI Trouble Shooter Jaie Avila investigates the case of one couple who says that policy is unfair.

Gilbert Carrillo thinks tattoos are an artform. He's been to tattoo conventions and one of his tattoos was featured in a magazine. "Ever since I was 18, to now, 25, bit by bit, covering up here, covering up there."

But last month, Carrillo's tattoos kept him and his wife, Melissa, from moving into an apartment complex called the Villas at Medical Center. "We liked the apartment, we brought them a check for the deposit and a check for the application fee," says Melissa.

Later, Gilbert went by to look at the apartment wearing a short sleeve shirt. The next day, the Carrillos were told they didn't qualify to live there, because the tattoos on Gilbert's arms violated the policy on personal appearance.

"For them to be so judgmental on a person's appearance, and for them to judge someone based on them having a tattoo is just ridiculous, you know," says Melissa.

The Carrillos were also upset that the manager refused to refund their full $70 application fee. But mostly, they feel the policy is discriminatory.

Look, JACKASS -- go somewhere where you're wanted. You want the right to do anything you damn well please with no consequences?? Fuck you and everyone LIKE you. If I had to guess, I'd say you were a jackass --- and if I lived in the apartments, I wouldn't want the owners to rent to jackasses -- I'd be HAPPY they refused your dumbass.

Now go get another tattoo, Einstein, and leave the rest of society alone. Go look up the term "consequences." Freedom for you to get a tattoo? What about MY freedom to be free of jackasses with tattoos in my apartment building??

You remind me of the jackasses who get huge speakers in their car and then boom it out for everyone else to hear. You're the same guy -- wanting to "inflict" your dumbass on others.

Of course, not all peeps with tattoos are jackasses -- but I'll take my odds.

Oregon acts as if it likes America


Flag-Themed Hydrant Pulled From Dog Park


Flag-Themed Hydrant Pulled From Dog Park
Sep 26 02:09 PM US/Eastern

HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - A fire hydrant painted as an American flag has been removed from a dog park after complaints it was disrespectful to let dogs use it for what dogs do.
The new leash-free park was named for Hondo, a police dog killed 10 years ago chasing a suspect, and the flag-painted hydrant was intended as a tribute to him. "We put a lot of effort into it," said artist Jason Ross.

However, after a photo of the hydrant appeared Sunday in The Oregonian newspaper, e-mails started arriving at the parks department.

"That gallant dog must be turning in his grave at the thought of the flag being desecrated every time a dog pees on that hydrant!" wrote Louanne Douris, a retired U.S. Foreign Service officer.

Parks officials had thought of that problem, and had put the red, white and blue hydrant on an 18-inch-high base, surrounded by "dog- unfriendly" shrubs including prickly barberry bushes.

Another hydrant was placed at ground level for the dogs' convenience.

Parks officials said there had been no reports of dogs urinating on the flag hydrant.

"I think the overall message was support for the dog park and support for honoring the police dog—the fallen police dog—but the concern (was) over the perception of a dog peeing on a hydrant painted with an American flag," said Corrine Bloomfield, the department's community resources manager.

She said the city hadn't decided where to place the hydrant.

Seriously -- I'm surprised this took place in Oregon, a bastion of communism.

Handcuffed Mexican kids steal U.S. border agent car

MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) - Three Mexican minors detained in California on suspicion of smuggling drugs stole a U.S. Border Patrol car while still wearing handcuffs and drove it back across the border to Mexico.

Police in the Mexican border city of Mexicali said on Tuesday the three boys had been driving a pick-up truck on a remote Californian highway when a Border Patrol agent stopped them.

Suspicious they were carrying marijuana, he handcuffed them and put them in his patrol car while he searched their truck.

"As the agent was doing his search, he left the vehicle running and the keys in the ignition, so one of the lads, still wearing handcuffs, grabbed the steering wheel and they headed back to Mexico," a police spokesman said.

The Border Patrol, which plays cat and mouse around the clock with illegal Mexican migrants and drug traffickers, confirmed the vehicle was stolen in southern California on Sunday and driven over the border near Mexicali.

Mexican police used a helicopter to locate the patrol vehicle in a remote agricultural area near the border.
LMAO

Scientists need to continue funding

SHOCKER UPDATE BELOW:

Er -- this is how they make money -- by clucking about the sky falling.

Climate Change: Did NASA scientist James Hansen, the global warming alarmist in chief, once believe we were headed for . . . an ice age? An old Washington Post story indicates he did.

On July 9, 1971, the Post published a story headlined "U.S. Scientist Sees New Ice Age Coming." It told of a prediction by NASA and Columbia University scientist S.I. Rasool. The culprit: man's use of fossil fuels. (Gaaaaa -- who would have guessed)

Aiding Rasool's research, the Post reported, was a "computer program developed by Dr. James Hansen," who was, according to his resume, a Columbia University research associate at the time.

So what about those greenhouse gases that man pumps into the skies? Weren't they worried about them causing a greenhouse effect that would heat the planet, as Hansen, Al Gore and a host of others so fervently believe today?

"They found no need to worry about the carbon dioxide fuel-burning puts in the atmosphere," the Post said in the story, which was spotted last week by Washington resident John Lockwood, who was doing research at the Library of Congress and alerted the Washington Times to his finding.

Hansen has some explaining to do. The public deserves to know how he was converted from an apparent believer in a coming ice age who had no worries about greenhouse gas emissions to a global warming fear monger.

This is a man, as Lockwood noted in his message to the Times' John McCaslin, who has called those skeptical of his global warming theory "court jesters." We wonder: What choice words did he have for those who were skeptical of the ice age theory in 1971?
More here:

The Klown LOVES any sentence that begins with "What we found was -- or What we find is" -- cuz then, right away, I know I'm talking to a shitforbrains -- it's a nice clue -- see if it works for you.

UPDATE


How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely "NASA whistleblower" standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros' Open Society Institute , which gave him "legal and media advice"?

That's right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros' flagship "philanthropy," by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI's "politicization of science" program.

That may have meant that Hansen had media flacks help him get on the evening news to push his agenda and lawyers pressuring officials to let him spout his supposedly "censored" spiel for weeks in the name of advancing the global warming agenda.

----------
That's not the only case. Didn't the mainstream media report that 2006's vast immigration rallies across the country began as a spontaneous uprising of 2 million angry Mexican-flag waving illegal immigrants demanding U.S. citizenship in Los Angeles, egged on only by a local Spanish-language radio announcer?

Turns out that wasn't what happened, either. Soros' OSI had money-muscle there, too, through its $17 million Justice Fund. The fund lists 19 projects in 2006. One was vaguely described involvement in the immigration rallies. Another project funded illegal immigrant activist groups for subsequent court cases.
----------

Meanwhile, OSI cash backed terrorist-friendly court rulings, too.

Do people know last year's Supreme Court ruling abolishing special military commissions for terrorists at Guantanamo was a Soros project? OSI gave support to Georgetown lawyers in 2006 to win Hamdan v. Rumsfeld — for the terrorists.

OSI also gave cash to other radicals who pressured the Transportation Security Administration to scrap a program called "Secure Flight," which matched flight passenger lists with terrorist names. It gave more cash to other left-wing lawyers who persuaded a Texas judge to block cell phone tracking of terrorists.

They trumpeted this as a victory for civil liberties. Feel safer?

Well -- I already knew George Soros was a complete jackass -- but they sure hid the fact that he was trumpeting global warming. Of course, this will make no difference to the communists -- uh -- I mean "Progressives."

I knew it, I KNEW it

Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia Brady on the hit 70s TV show, The Brady Bunch, has a book coming out next year in which she reveals she had an affair with her on-screen sister. Here's The Story, a tell-all documenting her well-publicized eating disorder and drug addiction, includes sexually explicit details of the relationship between McCormick and actress, Eve Plumb. A source says:

The most explosive comments will be how the then blonde, blue-eyed cutie developed a crush on Eve Plumb, which led to some sexual play. This book will certainly come as a shocker. While Maureen is not a lesbian, she reveals there were some sexual hijinks going on behind the scenes. It's bizarre because she played such a virginal character on the show."

Yes -- the Klown brings you all the good stuff.

Laughingstock says America is laughingstock

Oh, the ironing is delicious. He wouldn't know a laughingstock if he saw one in the mirror everyday.


Trump also reiterated his comments to CNN in March that Bush is "probably" the worst president in American history, saying, "We've gone from this tremendous power that was respected all over the world to somewhat of a laughing stock."

Hey, TRUMP -- pipe down, you jackass.

Did you know about this?

Buddhist monks march through Ahlone, a Rangoon suburb, on 24 September

Burmese military threatens monks

Burma's ruling military junta has warned it is ready to "take action" against Buddhist monks leading mounting protests, state media have reported.
Brig Gen Thura Myint Maung, minister for religion, warned them not to break Buddhist "rules and regulations" as Rangoon saw the largest march yet.

He blamed the protests on "destructive elements" opposed to peace in Burma.

President George W Bush is set to announce fresh US sanctions on Burmese leaders, the White House says.
Lots More here:

Are you in Burma? Have you witnessed the protests? What is the mood like in the country? Send us your comments and experiences.

I witnessed the big protests in Rangoon today. I am really sorry for our country and our people because we are under the control of the wicked junta. We haven't got arms, we wish for peace, a better future and democracy. We are hoping that the UN security council will put a pressure on the junta. Kyi Kyi, Rangoon

I saw more than 100,000 monks march to 8 -mile junction, from south to north, I'm not sure where they lead to. This situation could be worse more if junta couldn't control softly. We want some changes in Burma, but we want these changes leading to good ways. I can say surely that killing the monks is insulting the Buddhism religious. Sun, Rangoon

I saw about 40,000 to 50,000 people, including monks, nuns and ordinary people, marching along Prome road. That was at around 3:30pm. The protests will grow bigger day by day and I hope that they are not going to start killing people. We need help to save our people. Mr Tun, Rangoon

More comments at the link above also.

By the way -- THIS is EXACTLY why you NEVER let government put gun restrictions on law-abiding citizens. It's also EXACTLY why you NEVER want to let the central government gain too much power.

Objective jourrrrnalists cover protest


Yay -- our totally unbiased and objective media was out covering the protest of Ahma-dipshit-ejad yesterday.

Oh -- wait -- no they weren't.

The same people who can send a 6-man crew to cover 15 anti-war (read: anti-conservative) protesters, can't cover the 25,000 peeps protesting a shitforbrains dictator at the United Nations building. I had to look pretty hard to find even this small pic.

Maybe they were busy convering one of Cindy Sheehan's farts.

If there are 15 peeps protesting the war, I see pics of it for 3 days on TV -- and I know there was coverage of this huge protest -- but I haven't seen anything on TV. There is probably plenty of coverage and I must just keep missing it ... you know ... coinkydinkily.

The "Free Press" in Iran

New York, Sept 25, IRNA (Islamic Republic News Agency)

Despite entire US media objections, (The Klown never heard one "media objection") negative propagation and hue and cry in recent days over IRI President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's scheduled address at Colombia University, he gave his lecture and answered students questions here on Monday afternoon.

On second day of his entry in New York, and amid standing ovation of the audience that had attended the hall where the Iranian President was to give his lecture as of early hours of the day, Ahmadinejad said that Iran is not going to attack any country in the world.

Before President Ahamadinejad's address, Colombia University Chancellor in a brief address told the audience that they would have the chance to hear Iran's stands as the Iranian President would put them forth.

He said that the Iranians are a peace loving nation, they hate war, and all types of aggression.

Referring to the technological achievements of the Iranian nation in the course of recent years, the president considered them as a sign for the Iranians' resolute will for achieving sustainable development and rapid advancement.

The audience on repeated occasion applauded Ahmadinejad when he touched on international crises.

At the end of his address President Ahmadinejad answered the students' questions on such issues as Israel, Palestine, Iran's nuclear program, the status of women in Iran and a number of other matters.

Another one:
New York, Sept 25, IRNA

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad urged Western media Monday afternoon not to tell lies about Iran and come to see closely the existing situation in the country.

Uh -- SURE we will. We love coming to countries where there's a good chance of being taken captive or being beheaded -- LOVE IT -- SIGN US UP.

Here's a link to IRNA if you want to see their coverage for yourself.

Yeah, Yeah - I know

Hey Klown -- the President of Columbia University really went after that Ahma-dipshit-ejad guy -- maybe you were wrong.

No -- I wasna wrong. That jackass president took a beating about the visit and he figured he'd better do something to fix it. Peeps were threatening to withhold money from the college -- his shit was flakey.

I maintain they shouldn't have invited him to speak ... and don't give me "Klown, he has a right to free speech."

First of all, he's not an American and he DOESNA have the right to free speech. Besides, the "right to free speech" is NOT the "right to be heard."

Speaking of "rights" how are the women and homos doing in Iran?

These jackasses (as usual) have things exactly backwards. They ban the ROTC from campus -- but invite shithooks like Ahma-dipshit-ejad. That college is anti-American -- as many (if not most) are anti-American, anti-capitalist, anti-freedom institutions and they are the internal enemy.

Klown to the rescue

Whew -- according to Ahma-dipshit-ejad (Presidink of Iran) they lost all their homosexuals -- but the Klown has found them ... whew ... I'll bet that's a big relief to the dumbass.




Hey -- I'll bet some people are going to be in big trouble when Ahma-dipshit-ejad finds out about this, eh?

Headline - NO HOMOS IN IRAN

This may go down in history as one of THE dumbest things ever said by a head of state.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahma-dipshit-ejad said, "In Iran, we don't have homosexuals like in your country. We don't have that in our country. In Iran, we do not have this phenomenon. I don't know who has told you that we have it."

The audience was laughing like hell -- don't believe me?

Here's the video and translation -- THIS IS NOT A JOKE ... but is IS hysterical.

Too funny:

"Israel should be wiped off the map"

"No such thing as the holocaust"

"Death to America"

"No homosexuals in Iran"

"We're not supplying al-Qaida with IED's and weapons"

"We're not building a nuclear weapon"

"We have freedom of speech in Iran" (Unless the speech has "I'm a homo" in it, of course.

Is the fucker is mentally ill, mentally retarded, or what? -- seriously.

WHAAA?? Whoozat? Izzat Bush?

LMAO -- keep looking over your shoulder, you dipstick -- you're going to keep fucking up and then ... we're coming for you.

Idiot students get lesson in economics

Huh -- Colorado State? Perhaps the air is getting a little thin up there.

Have you ever noticed that the libs never understand economics? Perhaps this will teach them a little bit -- I doubt it -- because it wasn't their own wallets that were hit -- and libs NEVER seem to mind it when someone else's wallet is hit.

The Rocky Mountain Collegian published an editorial on page 4 of the paper Friday which read:
"Taser this ... F*** Bush."

The expletive was spelled out

Collegian Editor David McSwane said a group of seven student editors discussed the statement for several hours before agreeing to publish it.

McSwane told 7NEWS that ads from the CSU Bookstore were pulled from the paper in response to the editorial. Bookstore managers declined to comment.

The Associated Press Saturday reported the student newspaper has lost $30,000 in advertising and had to cut pay and other budgets by 10 percent because of fallout.
McSwane said he knows his job is on the line.

"I plan to be honest," he said. "Our intentions weren't 'Hey, let's upset the community.' It was, 'Let's get college students to talk about freedom of speech.'"

All about free speech -- sure it was. "Hey -- I'm the editor of the school paper -- watch me print "FUCK BUSH" in huge letters -- boy that'll show what a bright guy I am -- ha ha ha."

Hey -- you smarmy little fuck -- I hope you lose your job -- maybe Ward Churchill will let you stay in his teepee with the other geniuses.

I'm not worthy - I'm just a dumbass

Some people like to play poker online -- but that's illegal -- because -- I don't know -- some religious or nebulous "it's bad for society" thing probably.

Nevermind that though -- if you're a big time politician -- with lobbyists who want to give you money. Suddenly, it's not so bad anymore -- matter of fact, it's a good ol' time.

But YOU? -- you just keep your mouth shut over there, jackass -- and WE'LL be telling YOU what to do.


Good lord this government has gotten SOOOOO out of control ... it's just stupid now.
------------------------

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Barack Obama's triumph in the 2004 U.S. Senate race earned him a memorable send-off from his friends in the Illinois legislature - they emptied his wallet in a take-no-prisoners night of poker.

"We brought him down to earth real quick," said state Sen. Terry Link, chuckling at the memory.

Obama was a regular at the low-stakes games - sometimes stud poker, sometimes draw - designed to break up the tedium of long legislative sessions. Poker, beer and cigars were staples; Democrats and Republicans, lawmakers and even the lobbyists who Obama sometimes rails against dealt the cards and placed their bets.

Wrong and Rude - Rudy can't tell

Hey -- Giuliani -- it's wrong AND rude to answer your cell phone while giving a speech. I mean -- do you have a clue or not? Shouldn't you be somewhere taking guns away from somebody.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Rudy Giuliani sought to reassure the National Rifle Association of his support for a constitutional right to bear arms as rivals Fred Thompson, John McCain and Mike Huckabee contended the former New York mayor is no friend of gun owners.

Giuliani's cell phone rang in the middle of his speech; he said it was his wife, Judith, and as the audience laughed, he answered it and had a brief conversation.

They laughed huh -- I wonder why.

WE found out who REALLY "Betrayed Us"

Remember the Ad below? Well -- the Senate decided to have a vote to condemn this type of behavior. Do you know how your Senators voted?

Well -- most of the Senators voted to condemn it -- but 25 did not. 25 voted the other way.

Hey Klown -- the ones who voted the other way -- which party are they from?

Glad you asked, my friend -- why, it's the party of Anti-Americanism of course -- the party we Americans have to defeat EVERY time there's some bullshit afoot -- the DEMOCRATS.

WAY TO GO, JACKASSES.

Jackass Rather hates "frauds" and "setups"





Rather narrated the September 2004 report that said Bush disobeyed orders and shirked some of his duties during his National Guard service. It also said a commander felt pressured to sugarcoat Bush's record.

The story relied on four documents, supposedly written by Bush's commander in the Texas Air National Guard, the late Lt. Col. Jerry Killian. Critics questioned the documents' authenticity and suggested they were forged.

A panel selected by the network to investigate the story determined that it was neither fair nor accurate. CBS fired the story's producer and asked for the resignations of three executives because it could not authenticate documents used in the story. Rather was forced out of the anchor chair he had occupied for 24 years.

On CNN, Rather dismissed the panel's review, claiming it was not impartial.

"This was in many ways a fraud. It was a setup," he told King.

More here:

*SNIFF* -- YES, DAN, "in many ways a fraud ... a setup" -- just like you and the fucking "newscasts" you threw down everyone's throat for 25 years.


I guess "Frauds" and "Setups" are perfectly OK as long as you're the one perpetrating them -- RIGHT, DAN? -- YOU JACKASS!!!

Pinhead speaking at Columbia University

Yes -- that guy in Iran -- that has been in charge of making IED's that have been killing Americans in Iraq -- Columbia invited him to speak.

Obviously, many think that's in poor taste -- no matter -- here the dean tells you how smart he is -- and, by contrast, how stupid YOU are.



Of course you would, jackass ... cuz you're a MORON.

I see one guy wearing thongs -- wtf?

Dog - Eagles fan

A guy walks into a bar wearing an Eagles jersey, and carrying a dog that also has a Eagles jersey on with a little Eagles helmet on his head, too.

The guy says to the bartender, "Can my dog and I watch the Eagles game here? My TV is broke and my dog and I always watch the game together."

The bartender replies, "Normally, dogs wouldn't be allowed in the bar, but it's not very busy in here right now, so you and the dog can have a seat at the end of the bar. But, if there's any trouble with you or the dog, I'll have to ask you to leave."

The guy agrees, and he and his dog start watching the game. Pretty soon the Eagles kick a field goal and the excited dog jumps up on the bar and walks down the bar and gives everyone a high five.

The bartender says, "Hey, that's pretty cool! What does he do for a touchdown?"

The guys answers, "I don't know, I've only had him for 3 years."

Let the "objective jourrrrrnalists" handle it


Mark Levin on filibustering judges

Perhaps you've forgotten that the Democrats have been constantly blocking the judicial appointments of President Bush. In years past by unprecidented filibustering -- and now they have a majority.

Mark Levin - Montage

About 30 seconds - good punch line at the end.

P.J. O'Rourke

OK -- this guy is funny. He's written (and the Klown has read) many books -- the best of which, I think, was "Parliament of Whores." If you want to laugh, learn new words, and get a lesson in history and economics - buy one of his books. Anyway -- here's a speech he did in 1993 -- sounds a bit familiar to me.

Remarks delivered at a gala dinner celebrating the opening of the Cato Institute's new headquarters in Washington.

The Cato Institute has an unusual political cause -- which is no political cause whatsoever. We are here tonight to dedicate ourselves to that cause, to dedicate ourselves, in other words, to . . . nothing.

We have no ideology, no agenda, no catechism, no dialectic, no plan for humanity. We have no "vision thing," as our ex-president would say, or, as our current president would say, we have no Hillary.

All we have is the belief that people should do what people want to do, unless it causes harm to other people. And that had better be clear and provable harm. No nonsense about second-hand smoke or hurtful, insensitive language, please.

I don't know what's good for you. You don't know what's good for me. We don't know what's good for mankind. And it sometimes seems as though we're the only people who don't. It may well be that, gathered right here in this room tonight,are all the people in the world who don't want to tell all the people in the world what to do.

This is because we believe in freedom. Freedom -- what this country was established upon, what the Constitution was written to defend, what the Civil War was fought to perfect.

Freedom is not empowerment. Empowerment is what the Serbs have in Bosnia. Anybody can grab a gun and be empowered. It's not entitlement. An entitlement is what people on welfare get, and how free are they? It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights -- the "right" to education, the "right" to health care, the "right" to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery -- hay and a barn for human cattle.

There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.

So we are here tonight in a kind of anti-matter protest -- an unpolitical undemonstration by deeply uncommitted inactivists. We are part of a huge invisible picket line that circles the White House twenty-four hours a day. We are participants in an enormous non-march on Washington -- millions and millions of Americans not descending upon the nation's capital in order to demand nothing from the United States government. To demand nothing, that is, except the one thing which no government in history has been able to do -- leave us alone.

There are just two rules of governance in a free society:

* Mind your own business.
* Keep your hands to yourself.

Bill, keep your hands to yourself. Hillary, mind your own business.

We have a group of incredibly silly people in the White House right now, people who think government works. Or that government would work, if you got some real bright young kids from Yale to run it.

Like communism, "it just hasn't worked so far cuz the right people haven't been in charge."

We're being governed by dorm room bull session. The Clinton administration is over there right now pulling an all-nighter in the West Wing. They think that, if they can just stay up late enough, they can create a healthy economy and bring peace to former Yugoslavia.

The Clinton administration is going to decrease government spending by increasing the amount of money we give to the government to spend.

Health care is too expensive, so the Clinton administration is putting a high-powered corporate lawyer in charge of making it cheaper. (This is what I always do when I want to spend less money -- hire a lawyer from Yale.) If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it's free.

The Clinton administration is putting together a program so that college graduates can work to pay off their school tuition. As if this were some genius idea. It's called getting a job. Most folks do that when they get out of college, unless, of course, they happen to become governor of Arkansas.

And the Clinton administration launched an attack on people in Texas because those people were religious nuts with guns. Hell, this country was founded by religious nuts with guns. Who does Bill Clinton think stepped ashore on Plymouth Rock? Peace Corps volunteers? Or maybe the people in Texas were attacked because of child abuse. But, if child abuse was the issue, why didn't Janet Reno tear-gas Woody Allen?

You know, if government were a product, selling it would be illegal.

Government is a health hazard. Governments have killed many more people than cigarettes or unbuckled seat belts ever have.

Government contains impure ingredients -- as anybody who's looked at Congress can tell you.

On the basis of Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign promises, I think we can say government practices deceptive advertising.

And the merest glance at the federal budget is enough to convict the government of perjury, extortion, and fraud.

There, ladies and gentlemen, you have the Cato Institute's program in a nutshell: government should be against the law.

Term limits aren't enough. We need jail.

And -- a couple of bonus tidbits:

Neither conservatives nor humorists believe man is good. But left-wingers do. They think man's misbehavior is caused by a deprived environment, educational shortcomings, and improper bonding within the family unit. They believe there are people so poor they can't pick up their yard. Down that line of thinking lie all sorts of nastiness. Just ask the Cubans.

People ask me if I've ever been called a Nazi. I answer that no one has ever had dreams of being tied down and sexually ravished by someone dressed as a liberal.

Squirrels figure it out

Shocker - College Students Fail

College students struggle on history test

Students don't know much about history, and colleges aren't adding enough to their civic literacy, says a report out today.

The study from the non-profit Intercollegiate Studies Institute shows that less than half of college seniors knew that Yorktown was the battle that ended the American Revolution or that NATO was formed to resist Soviet expansion. Overall, freshmen averaged 50.4% on a wide-ranging civic literacy test; seniors averaged 54.2%, both failing scores if translated to grades.

"One of the things our research demonstrates conclusively is that an increase in what we call civic knowledge almost invariably leads to a use of that knowledge in a beneficial way," says Josiah Bunting, chairman of ISI's National Civic Literacy Board. "This is useful knowledge we are talking about."

CIVICS QUIZ: Take the full quiz

I was going to rant about how dumb these peeps are -- but after I took the test, I decided to pipe the fuck down.

The Klown's score? See Below -- and, if I remember, in a few days I'll post which questions I got wrong -- I couldn't post them here or it would skew your test results.

I'm not very proud of it -- but the test was harder than I aniticipated.


Lastly -- I don't believe the average hop can get a 75 on that test. I'd be willing to bet $100 per person if you just dragged them in off the street -- and I'd keep on posting the bet until I was out of assets. I mean -- how do college seniors get 54% but the average on the test for Sept is 75%? Doesna make sense to the Klown.

Jackass Canadian blames America

Over the past three weeks, 45 families and 31 individuals -- approximately 200 people -- entered Canada at the Detroit River crossings and applied in Windsor for shelter and social assistance after filing refugee claims with the Canada Border Services Agency. Municipal agencies dealing with the sudden influx of mainly Mexican refugee applicants are renting out hotel rooms and bracing for predicted thousands more to come.

"We don't have the means, ability or capacity to deal with this additional cost. We are not able to deal with this potential crisis locally," Francis wrote Harper.

"I don't believe that Windsor's residents and taxpayers should have to foot the bill for U.S. immigration policy," Francis told The Star. He was referring to the suspected source of the problem -- a recently begun crackdown on illegal immigrants in economically struggling regions of the U.S. South.

"They ask, 'Is Canada an option?' and I say, 'Yes, it is an option,'" Jacques Sinjuste of the Jerusalem Haitian Community Center said in a phone interview Wednesday. For a US$300 "donation" (most of those interviewed in Windsor claim they paid US$400), JHCC staff download forms off the Internet, help applicants fill them out and give directions on how to get to the Canadian border.

Sinjuste said he's simply providing a "referral" service.

"Most of the time when the people come, they say they've heard something (about Canada). I say that I've heard the same thing," he said.

Jacquie Rumiel, director of programs for new Canadians at the YMCA, where refugee claimants are referred by Windsor's border guards, said the new people she's seeing are "mostly" Mexicans coming from Florida.
More here:


Let me get this straight, CANADA -- the U.S. is supposed to take them all and not say a GD word --- but when they come into Canada -- it's a problem then -- right? How do you say "Jackass" in French? Ha Ha Ha Ha -- Too funny, Jacque-ASS.

Do you know about the "Jena 6?"

Separated at birth or what??











I only copied selected parts here -- but here's my take.

Some jackass white kids hung nooses in trees.

Some jackass black kids beat the crap out of the white kids.

Some jackass (Al Sharpton) thinks the black kids should not be punished.
The six were charged a few months after the local prosecutor declined to charge three white high school students who hung nooses in a tree on their high school grounds. Five of the black teens were initially charged with attempted murder, but that charge was reduced to battery for all but one, who has yet to be arraigned; the sixth teen was charged as a juvenile.

"This is the most blatant example of disparity in the justice system that we've seen," Sharpton said Thursday. "You can't have two standards of justice. We didn't bring race in it, those that hung the nooses brought the race into it."


District Attorney Reed Walters, breaking a long public silence, denied Wednesday that racism was involved. (HUH?)

He said he didn't prosecute the students accused of hanging the nooses because he could find no Louisiana law under which they could be charged. "I cannot overemphasize what a villainous act that was. The people that did it should be ashamed of what they unleashed on this town," Walters said.

The rally was heavily promoted on black Web sites, blogs, radio and publications.

Students came from schools across the region, including historically black colleges like Morehouse College, Spelman College, Clark Atlanta University, Howard University, Hampton University and Southern University.

Tina Cheatham missed the civil rights marches at Selma, Montgomery and Little Rock, but she had no intention of missing another brush with history. The 24-year-old Georgia Southern University graduate drove all night to reach tiny Jena in central Louisiana.

"It was a good chance to be part of something historic since I wasn't around for the civil rights movement. This is kind of the 21st century version of it," she said.

Yes, Tina -- this is exactly like the civil rights marches. Hee Hawww.

Read it yourself -- make up your own mind.


Here's some more I found -- with Jesse Jackson chiming in. I love how the media gives him a pass when he says "I don't remember saying that."
Oh -- you don't remember it -- well then -- we'll just erase it then -- sorry about that.


The Rev. Jesse Jackson called Tuesday on Democrats seeking the 2008 nomination for president to give S.C. voters “something to vote for” when they go to the polls in January.

On a statewide tour to register new voters, Jackson said South Carolina will determine “who has momentum” in the primary when it votes Jan. 29.

Jackson sharply criticized presidential hopeful and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama for “acting like he’s white” in what Jackson said has been a tepid response to six black juveniles’ arrest on attempted-murder charges in Jena, La. Jackson, who also lives in Illinois, endorsed Obama in March, according to The Associated Press.

“If I were a candidate, I’d be all over Jena,” Jackson said after an hour-long speech at Columbia’s historically black Benedict College.

“Jena is a defining moment, just like Selma was a defining moment,” said the iconic civil rights figure, who worked with Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1965 Selma civil rights movement and was with King at his 1968 assassination.

Later, Jackson said he did not recall making the “acting like he’s white” comment about Obama, stressing he only wanted to point out the candidates had not seized on an opportunity to highlight the disproportionate criminal punishments black youths too often face.
