” James Golden, better known to Rush Limbaugh’s listeners as call screener “Bo Snerdly,” sat down with Ginni Thomas for a thirty minute interview for the Daily Caller.

  Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, spent the first half of the interview talking about black America and the second half talking about Golden’s experiences working for 26 years with Limbaugh.

  The comments Golden made about the black community and its experience, much of it drawn from his own personal life growing up in Jamaica, Queens, NY, was incredibly interesting. And it will certainly be controversial.

Here are 5 key quotes from the interview:

  1. “What liberalism has done to the black communities, it’s not a monolithic community, is horrific.”
  2. “Most black people live their lives as conservatives; a lot of them vote liberal because that’s the way their families vote, that’s what they grew up voting. And because they believe the press hype, and by the way Republicans haven’t helped. The last batch of Republicans in DC haven’t help with the branding.” “

REVENGE: Check Out What This Guy Did to a Jerk Taking Two Parking Spaces

 

 

 

” There’s not much that can be agreed upon between the left and the right in America, unless of course we’re talking about people who park like idiots. We all run into them, and we all can’t stand them.

  Rather than just pass by someone he found parking like a jerk, Reddit user AnotherCJMajor decided he was going to get sweet revenge on the owner of a Corvette who thought they were entitled to two front row parking spaces. When he saw the man’s poor park job, CJMajor said he couldn’t resist the urge to do something about it.”

Hong Kong Students Step Up Pressure Against Communist China

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Thousands of university students waving yellow ribbons and “Democracy Now” banners boycotted their classes Monday to protest Beijing’s decision to maintain control over Hong Kong elections, marking an escalation of the city-island’s pro-democracy movement that now is taking aim at local pro-China billionaires.

Chanting “Reject fake elections,” the students marched at Chinese University and said their boycott will continue all week as they gather en masse at government offices and headquarters. The protesters said it’s the first phase of a battle that will include occupying Hong Kong’s central business district in the next few weeks to tell the city’s elite to stop backing China.

The activists said they won’t stand down until they get results.

“ I believe a fight for democracy is a war,” said Chan Kin-man, a leader of a group called Occupy Central, which is spearheading the protest in the financial district. “The occupation of the central business district is just one battle.” “

This Map Shows The Real Value Of 100 Dollars In Your State

 

 

 

” How far does a dollar go in your state compared to others in the United States? Thanks to the Tax Foundation’s review of Bureau of Economic Analysis data, now you know.

  A dollar doesn’t go quite as far in states like California and New York, and it goes comparatively further in states like Mississippi and South Dakota.

  The cost of living gap is amplified by federal taxes being based on the same income levels regardless of cost of living. Someone who earns $40,000 a year in Jackson, Miss., is taxed at the same federal rate as someone earning $40,000 in San Francisco, Calif.”

Obama Losing The Confidence Of Key Parts Of The Coalition That Elected Him

 

 

” Kimberly Cole was part of the coalition that voted in 2008 to make Barack Obama the 44th president and gave him another four years in 2012 to deliver on his promises of hope and change.

  Now, the 36-year-old mother of three young children in Valencia, Calif., is among the majority of Americans who have lost confidence in Obama’s leadership and the job he is doing as president.

“ He’s been faced with a lot of challenges, and he’s lost his way,” Cole said in an interview. She worries that Obama lacks the resolve needed at a time when things at home and abroad are looking scarier. 

  On the other side of the country, Karlene Richardson, 44, once counted herself a “very strong supporter” of the president. But now she feels much the same as Cole does.

“ Honestly, I just feel that what I bought into is not what I’m getting,” said Richardson, an author and motivational speaker who teaches health-care administration at a community college in Queens. “I’m starting to wonder whether the world takes us seriously.” 

  Both Cole and Richardson were surveyed in the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll and represent one of its most striking findings: the degree to which the president’s approval has slipped among key parts of the Obama coalition — the women, youth and Latino voters most responsible for putting him into office.

  Women surveyed said they disapprove of Obama by a 50 percent to 44 percent margin — nearing an all-time low in the poll. It’s almost the reverse of the 55 percent to 44 percent breakdown for Obama among female voters in 2012, according to exit polls.”

Islamophobia? Hell Yes!

 

 

” On a recent family trip to Santa Monica, an evening walk on the Third Avenue Promenade felt as if we had been dropped into a Middle Eastern country.  90% of the people strolling down the bustling walkways and lounging at the cafes were Muslim. Women were dressed in either burqas, niqabs, or hijabs and the few younger women who were not, were speaking Arabic.

  This experience followed a trip to Maine where we found ourselves encountering an unusually large number of Muslims on the streets of several cities and learned of the mini-Dearborn into which the Lewiston/Auburn area had been transformed.

  Portland almost resembled midtown Manhattan where the Muslim population has been growing exponentially over the past several years.

  The left commands us to believe that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.  And yet, despite the fact that we have welcomed these vast Muslim communities into our country with open arms, the reality is something quite different. After I left Santa Monica I recalled that a Pakistani hotel owner there was sued for throwing all of the Jews out of her hotel. She told her staff to “Get the [expletive deleted] Jews out of my pool” and that “no one who was identifiable as Jewish was so much as ‘allowed to dip their feet in the water.’”

  Dennis Prager’s recent column discussed a Muslim woman in Winooski, Vermont whose complaint over the “offensive” use of the word bacon in an advertisement led to the restaurant taking down the ad.  Pointing out that religious Jews who do not eat pork have never even considered advertising bacon as offensive, Prager wrote:

  The woman who wrote this totalitarian drivel is the worst combination of fake victimhood, political correctness (which itself is a PC euphemism for “that which offends the left”), and Muslims who seek to impose sharia law on non-Muslims….

  Would that the intolerance end there, perhaps I would feel safe with all of the hijabs that are appearing across America. But this summer we were treated to ugly pro-Hamas protests across the country.   From San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle to Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, Muslims screamed “Death to Israel,” called for a third intifada, chanted “Jews go back to the ovens,” and compared Israel to Nazis.  And two weeks ago on NYC’s Upper East Side, people in cars flying Palestinian flags yelling anti-Jewish statements attacked a Jewish couple. “

Where Obama Could Lose it All: Senate Races To Watch

 

 

 

 

 

” With two months until mid-term congressional elections, President Barack Obama’s Democrats face increasingly long odds of maintaining control of the US Senate. Republicans must gain six seats to take over, and many analysts say that goal is within reach.

  Far more Democrats are up for re-election than Republicans this cycle, including four struggling to keep their seats in crucial swing states that Obama lost when he was re-elected in 2012.

  But Republicans are hardly united in their tactics, as evidenced by pressure from core conservatives threatening a government shutdown over immigration policy — tactics experts warn could backfire.

  Nevertheless, the wind is at Republicans’ backs in this mid-term election, which traditionally favors the opposition party in year six of a presidency, as this is.

  Republicans are predicted to maintain control of the House of Representatives, where all 435 seats are being contested. Democrats are struggling to hang on in the 100-member Senate, where 36 seats are up for grabs.

  Below is a list of key Senate races in November’s election and issues to watch as the parties battle for congressional supremacy. “

The Lebanese Ice Bucket Challenge Has Morphed Into Burning Islamic State Flags

 

 

 

 

” Last weekend, several Lebanese activists started a trend which has since gained prominence under the hashtag #BurnISISFlagChallenge or #BurnISIS. The protesters burned an Islamic State flag in retaliation to the presumed beheading of a Lebanese officer, an idea which quickly motivated others to post similar pictures or videos.

  The self-perpetuating campaign follows the model of the well-known #IceBucketChallenge, and has found supporters on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks.

  Although having been praised by some Internet users, the campaign has been strongly criticized by the Lebanese justice minister who even called for “sternest punishments” for those who burned flags of the IS militant group last Saturday. In a statement, Ashraf Rifi declared it was necessary to “bring to justice those individuals who burned the ISIS flag in Sassine Square.” “

If Police Come To Your Door Without a Warrant, Shut Them Down Like This Guy

 

 

 

” If police come to your door and you don’t need their help, you can simply decline to answer. They cannot come into your home without a search warrant.

  Even if the police have probable cause, they cannot come in your home without a search warrant.

  You might even be a suspect in a criminal investigation. In such a case you should remain silent — except to say “Officer, I can’t let you inside without a search warrant.” Following such an encounter, you should immediately contact a lawyer before speaking to police again.

  The fact is that police can legally lie to try and gain access into your home and knowing how to deal with police at your door can go a long way.”

Could This Nail Polish Help Prevent Date Rape?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Remember the pd.id, the tiny, lighter-sized device that women could slip in their drinks to detect the presence of date-rape drugs? Soon you won’t need to carry around a sensor with you to protect yourself during a night on the town—all you’ll need is a manicure before you go.

  The startup Undercover Colors, which is marketing itself as “the first fashion company to prevent sexual assault,” is currently developing a brand of nail polish that can detect the presence of date-rape drugs, which are generally colorless and odorless, in someone’s beverage. All you have to do is surreptitiously dip a nail into your drink, and wait to see if it changes color.”

 

 

 

 

” Undercover Colors was founded by four undergraduate engineering students at North Carolina State University. The idea for the startup, cofounder Ankesh Madan says, arose from personal experience.

“ We were thinking about big problems in our society, [and] the topic of drug-facilitated sexual assault came up,” he recently told Higher Education Works. “All of us have been close to someone who has been through the terrible experience, and we began to focus on preventive solutions, especially those that could be integrated into products that women already use.” “

The 5 Best States For Senior Citizens To Retire In

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Baby boomers may have provided the bulk of the productivity surge in this country during the past couple of decades, but now they’re retiring in unprecedented numbers. This is setting in motion a number of interesting scenarios.

  Some retirees are still recovering from the Great Recession swoon. Many are concerned about the Social Security funding gap, and some need their nest eggs to stretch further because people are living longer than ever these days.

  But for all retirees, choosing where to retire can be just as important as choosing when to retire.

 As we saw last weekend, more than a dozen U.S. states tax Social Security income either at the federal rate or at rates based on their own formulas. In addition, sales tax, property tax, and a bevy of other costs can vary throughout the country. Thus some states let senior citizens hang on to more of their hard-earned cash than others do.

  Thankfully, Bankrate has done the hard work for us. By using a number of factors that include tax burden, cost of living, access to healthcare, crime rate, and even weather, it has ranked the top states for senior citizens to retire in. According to Bankrate’s findings, here are the five best states for retirement, in ascending order: “

Smartphone Add-Ons Offer Thermal Imaging

 

 

 

 

” Thermal imaging, a long-costly technology that lets soldiers see in the dark and firefighters see through smoke, is rapidly moving toward the mainstream with phone add-ons that cost hundreds of dollars rather than thousands.

  Flir Systems Inc., FLIR +0.26% one of the best-known manufacturers in the field, in July introduced a $349 iPhone accessory that allows the smartphone’s display to show glowing heat signatures of people, animals, lights and other objects. Its Flir One looks a bit like a standard protective case for a smartphone. The camera-equipped black sleeve wraps around an iPhone 5 or 5s, allowing a user to point at objects while viewing images on its display.

   Meanwhile, a group of industry veterans at a startup called Seek Thermal this fall plan to begin selling an add-on camera for smartphones for about $100 less. Rather than a sleeve, the company plans to sell a small thermal-camera module that plugs into the bottom of a smartphone. In a recent demonstration, a prototype Seek Thermal camera generated color thermal images that can be contrasted with conventional images using a split-screen feature.”

Almost 8,000 Navy Chiefs Face Ax

 

 

 

 

” Almost 8,000 senior enlisted personnel must go before a continuation board later this year to determine whether they can continue to serve or must retire.

  The board — the first since early 2013 — will convene Oct. 27, according to a Navy document released Aug. 14.

  At risk are between 7,500 and 8,000 retirement-eligible active and reserve E-7s, E-8s and E-9s with at least at least three years’ time in rate.

  But there is a big upside to the process: Clearing out senior enlisted who have engaged in misconduct or whose performance has slipped noticeably makes way for hot running sailors to move up.

  The board has no exceptions; even the most senior sailors — up to and including Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Mike Stevens — will have their records reviewed.”

 

 

     These military purges serve multiple purposes for the Obama regime: They free up moneys to fund more “social programs” read: vote buying , they rid the service of the most experienced war fighters thus continuing Obama’s policy of weakening our national security and they allow the tyrant to install personnel more loyal to himself all under the guise of being more responsible with our taxpayer dollars .

The Best School Supplies

 

 

” It’s that time of year again—time for parents to wipe away tears of joy as they take household freedom back from the tyranny of teenagers. Just kidding. It’s an exciting but busy time of year for those going back to school (or going away to school for the first time), which can lead to frustration when deciding what’s actually necessary for things like cleaning, dorm life, electronics, food prep, class items, and even elementary school needs.

  Most back-to-school guides are full of gear students can’t afford or shouldn’t even consider in the first place. We decided to continue the tradition of publishing a researched list of the basics for a student’s home, backpack, and lecture hall. Some of our picks stem from the over 50 hours spent on fresh research and testing for this guide, while others are from full-length guides that we’ve specifically filtered for the student set.

  Remember, you may have some of this stuff already—don’t buy anything you don’t need. It’s a better idea to put that money towards student loans or trips back home during the holidays.”

Mexico Protests Texas National Guard Troops On US Border

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Mexico’s foreign ministry late Friday protested Texas Governor Rick Perry’s deployment of National Guard troops to the southern US border to halt the surge of child migrants.

  Mexico “reiterates, in a firm and categorical way, its rejection of this measure,” read a statement from the foreign ministry.

No circumstance at all or change in border security exists that justifies this measure taken by the state.”

  The troop deployment “does not contribute in any way to solving the immigration problem,” and is inconsistent with US-Mexico talks aimed at “building a modern, prosperous and safe border,” the statement read.

  On Thursday Perry deployed some 1,000 National Guard troops to the border with Mexico.

  National Guard troops are soldiers under the authority of the state governor. They cannot detain undocumented migrants, which is a federal responsibility, but they can take over some duties that allows more US Border Patrol agents to monitor the borderline.”

Swansea Motorcyclist Arrested In NH For Allegedly Going More Than 130 MPH

 

 

 

” New Hampshire State Police have accused a motorcyclist of traveling over 130 mph in a 70 mph speed zone on Interstate 93.

  State police aircraft clocked the speed at 134 mph in the southbound lane in Canterbury at about 11 a.m. Monday and saw that it traveled in the breakdown lane and cut between lanes of traffic, passing vehicles. At times, the aircraft tracked the vehicle doing between 150 and 180 mph.

  Police said the motorcycle pulled in behind a business on North Main Street in Concord, and troopers responded. They charged 31-year-old Daniel Thibeault of Swansea, Mass., with reckless conduct, disobeying an officer and driving after suspension. He’s scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday. It was not immediately known if he had a lawyer.”

 

    While charged with doing “only” 134 mph , the aerial patrol plane estimated that Mr Thibeault actually hit speeds of between 150 and 180 mph .

Many Americans Renounce Citizenship, Hitting New Record

 

 

 

” It may seem like a drop in the bucket, especially when droves want to immigrate to America. Still, the newly published names of individuals who renounced their U.S. citizenship or terminated long-term U.S. residency is up, with 576 for the quarter and 1,577 so far this year. The growing trend is a sad one as Record Numbers of Americans Are Renouncing Their U.S. Citizenship.

  For all the immigrant arrivals, the trickle the other direction is becoming more pronounced. The tally was 2,999 for all of 2013, a 221% increase over the 932 who left in 2012. The Treasury Department is required to publish a quarterly list, a kind of public outing putting Americans on notice of who relinquished their rights. Consular expatriations, where people don’t file exit tax forms with the IRS, are apparently not counted.

  Indeed, the Treasury Department’s published list states explicitly this is just those about whom the Secretary of the Treasury has data. It means these numbers are under-stated, some say considerably. Although tax law used to impact how one is taxed on departing the U.S., is no longer relevant why someone expatriates.”
