Your Marxist Moron of the Day is Joy Reid

If you have never heard of Joy Reid, you are not alone, she appears on MSNBS, which has some ratings issues mainly because it is a Left wing network that hires Left wing nuts like, well, Joy Reid. The Right Scoop has a video of Reid, pretending to be both snarky and funny

I love that Reid is angry that Robertson did not see abuse of Blacks where he grew up. How the Hell does this moron know what Robertson saw in those days? She doesn’t. But, Robertson is not allowed to give his testimony about life in Louisiana in the 1950′s. NO! He must say that he witnessed horrible things, even if he did not. He dared challenge the narrative, and that is not allowed. With the Left it is all about narratives, and that includes history.

 

Jindal calls Obama like he sees him

BULLY!

Obama first delivered a pitch for the creation of jobs by fixing roads, dredging ports and modernizing the U.S. air traffic control system.

Then he took a veiled jab at Jindal for failing to support a key plank of the healthcare law.

Louisiana is one of 24 states that has refused federal funds to expand Medicaid to more low-income people, money that Obama said would help 265,000 people in the state gain access to health insurance.

“Even if you don’t support the overall plan, let’s at least go ahead and make sure that the folks who don’t have health insurance right now and can get it through an expanded Medicaid, let’s make sure we do that,” Obama said.

That opened the door for Jindal to accuse Obama of trying to “bully” the state.

“We will not allow President Obama to bully Louisiana into accepting an expansion of Obamacare,” Jindal said in a statement, saying the expansion would cost the state too much.

“The dysfunction of the website and the president’s broken promises on being able to keep your health plan are just the tip of the iceberg in regards to the problems with this law,” Jindal said.

Good for Jindal

 

Once again, Democrats hurt Black kids, will the uniformed voters take note?

Conservative Hideout has news that should not surprise anyone. The Justice Department is suing Louisiana to stop school vouchers

In something reminiscent of the 60′s, Democrats are barring minorities from escaping terrible public schools.    Doug Ross has our first excerpt…

Pro-Choice: The Justice Department has asked a federal court to stop 34 school districts in Louisiana from handing out private-school vouchers so kids can escape failing public schools, just like the president’s daughters.

He didn’t say it on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech,” but President Obama, along with Attorney General Eric Holder, also has a dream — one of leaving every black child in the Pelican State behind, trapped in schools that cannot educate them.

Almost simultaneously with the president’s speech, Holder’s Department of Justice filed suit in federal court to stop Louisiana’s statewide voucher program.

Passed in 2012, the program guarantees a voucher tostudents from families with incomes below 250% of poverty and who attend schools graded “C” or below.

Liberals are all for choice when it comes to having children, but not when it comes to educating them. The irony of Obama’s speech is that he pretended to honor a man who fought to have black children attend schools they were barred from as his administration fought to keep them in schools they can’t escape from, a form of educational apartheid that’s both separate and unequal.

Why would they do this? Why would they seek to keep down kids whose parents are trying to get them in better schools? Oh, they will give many reasons, but the fact is this. there is only ONE REASON for this. Democrats are beholden to teachers unions, yes, but the bigger reason is they want for minority kids to be dumbed down, it keeps them voting Democrat! Matt has more, make sure to read this

Let’s also understand that the public school system, that systematically fails to educate everyone, but especially minorities, is little more than a vassal of the Democratic Party, and serviced by the teachers union.  In spite of the overwhelming evidence, Both the Democrats and the unions steadfastly refuse any attempts to reform it, as that would mean removing their control of it.  Now, why would they so vehemently resist changing it?  I posted a story of a 13 year old girl that found the answer, and was punished for it…

If you needed more proof, kindly considers what happens when a young black student “wakes up” to history, and has the temerity to quote Frederick Douglass, in the proper context…

Mr. Vargas is fortunate enough to have in his charge one Jada Williams, a 13-year-old eighth grader who voluntarily took on some difficult extra work: reading Frederick Douglass’s Narrative of the Life and writing an essay on the subject. Frederick Douglass is dangerous reading, truly radical stuff. Miss Williams, like most of thestudents in her dysfunctional school, is black. Most of the people being paid to go through the motions of teaching them are white. Coming across the famous passage in which Douglass quotes the slavemaster Auld, Miss Williams was startled by the words: “If you teach that nigger (speaking of myself) how to read, there will be no keeping him. It will forever unfit him to be a slave. He would at once become unmanageable, and of no value to his master.” The situation seemed to her familiar, and her essay was a blistering indictment of the failures of the largely white faculty of her school: “When I find myself sitting in a crowded classroom where no real instruction is taking place I can say history does repeat itself.”

Her teacher was so offended by the essay that she circulated copies of it to the rest of the faculty and to the principal. Miss Williams, an A student, suddenly began to receive Ds. According to accounts, her mother received harassing telephone calls from teachers who suggested that she was in some way disturbed rather than merely observant. She was forced eventually to withdraw from the school and enroll in an even worse one. (The Blaze has more.)

So, a student woke up, and realized that she was being enslaved by a failing system, was punished for noticing the truth?  Well, let’s just say that it gets more interesting…

Teachers refused to show Miss Williams’s mother the schoolwork she had allegedly performed poorly on, and they refused to answer many of her questions about her daughter’s performance and alleged behavioral problems.

The teachers also failed to enter Miss Williams’s essay in the contest for which it was written — intentionally sabotaging her chances at an academic honor.

It is our contention that most of the regressive/Marxist/Democrat Party social programs are intended to no only create dependency, but to perpetuate it forever.  The chains of this new slavery were forged by the Democrats, are expanded, and are strengthened by the Democrats.  And, when of their victims notices who it is that is enslaving them, there is quick and sure retribution.  Because, you see, ideas are dangerous things, especially ones about escaping the government plantation.

Racism anyone? I keep saying the Left will do anything to seize and keep perpetual power, this is just further proof. If you are Black and really want to see your biggest enemy, go find a Democratic politician.

Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory Switches Parties From Democrat To Republican

Louisiana State Senator Switches Party, First Black Republican Since Reconstruction – Breitbart

On Friday, Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory switched his party affiliation from the Democrat to the Republican party, becoming the first black Republican in the Louisiana legislature since Reconstruction. “I am as of this day joining Frederick Douglass as a Republican,” he said.

.

Democrats in Lousiana are not happy:

State Democratic Party executive director Stephen Handwerk called the party switch “a craven display of political opportunism.”

Handwerk called on Guillory to resign his senate seat “since he has chosen to abandon the Democratic Party values that the voters elected him to represent.”

In his speech at the @Large Conference in Baton Rouge, Guillory repeatedly referred to the Democrats as ‘the party of disappointment.” He brought up his growing disgust with Democrats over issues like abortion, Benghazi, and immigration.

He accused Democrats of advocating policies that encourage a high teen birthrate, a high unemployment rate, and a high incarceration rate in the black community. He told the audience of black conservatives and their supporters that black Americans need to lead “by not putting all our eggs into one basket.”

Guillory, a practicing attorney, was known as a conservative Democrat and had been wooed by the Republican party for months.

Oklahoma lowers death toll to 24

Let’s all pray for the lowest total possible

Nearly 24 hours after a monster tornado tore through a suburb of Oklahoma City, leaving at least 24 dead — including nine children — hopes for a rescue of trapped survivors are beginning to wane as more threatening weather moves into the region.

“We will rebuild and we will regain our strength,” said Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, who went on a flyover of the area and described it as a “heartbreaking experience” that is “hard to look at.”

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., forecast more stormy weather Tuesday in parts of Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma, including the Moore area.

Rescue crews are sifting through rubble in the search for survivors, painting X’s on buildings to make sure nothing is being overlooked.

“As long as we are here … we are going to hold out hope that we will find survivors,” said Trooper Betsy Randolph, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. But officials believe more bodies are underneath the rubble.

“I truly expect that they’ll find more today,” Oklahoma City Medical Examiner Office Spokeswoman Amy Elliott said.

Elliott cautioned Tuesday that officials could see as many as 40 additional fatalities, and Fallin said that bodies may have been taken to funeral homes instead of authorities.

Just keep praying people, and give aid in any other way that you can. And to those under tornado watches and warnings today, as my family and I am, be prepared.

The Food Nazis Are At It Again

State Regulators Crack Down On Grocery Chain For Selling Cheap Milk – Daily Caller

Louisiana state regulators recently cracked down on a supermarket chain’s weekly promotional deal because it was selling milk too cheaply – which violates state law.

The upscale Fresh Market was selling gallons of milk for $2.99 as part of a weekly promotional deal. Louisiana requires that retailer price markups be at least six percent above the invoice and shipping costs of the product.

“Because milk is a commodity product with regulated costs that are subject to change, at the current cost, due to Louisiana state law, we are unable to honor the $2.99 Tuesday deal for (Fresh Market) milk,” according to a statement from Drewry Sackett of BRAVE Public Relations, who represents the Fresh Market. “Because the cost of milk fluctuates, it is possible that we will be able to offer the $2.99 deal on milk again in the future.”

“They can sell it six percent over cost all day long. It’s when they sell it below cost that it becomes a problem,” State Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain told The Advocate.

After getting a complaint about Fresh Market’s promotional deal, Strain’s office sent an auditor to a French Market store.

At least one Fresh Market shopper was outraged when he found that the state government had intervened to control the store’s milk prices.

“Should we do the same thing with bread? Should we do the same thing with soft drinks?” asked Lafayette stockbroker Kenneth Daigle. “If retailers want to take a loss, so be it.”

Law Bans Cash for Second Hand Transactions – Acadiana’s News Leader

Your government, er National Nannies at work again. Of course this law is needed, for, you know, our own good.

House bill 195 basically says those who buy and sell second hand goods cannot use cash to make those transactions, and it flew so far under the radar most businesses don’t even know about it.

“We’re gonna lose a lot of business,” says Danny Guidry, who owns the Pioneer Trading Post in Lafayette. He deals in buying and selling unique second hand items.

“We don’t want this cash transaction to be taken away from us. It’s an everyday transaction,” Guidry explains.

Guidry says, “I think everyone in this business once they find out about it. They’re will definitely be a lot of uproar.”

The law states those who buy or sell second hand goods are prohibited from using cash. State representative Rickey Hardy co-authored the bill.

Hardy says, “they give a check or a cashiers money order, or electronic one of those three mechanisms is used.”

Hardy says the bill is targeted at criminals who steal anything from copper to televisions, and sell them for a quick buck. Having a paper trail will make it easier for law enforcement.

“It’s a mechanism to be used so the police department has something to go on and have a lead,” explains Hardy.

Guidry feels his store shouldn’t have to change it’s ways of doing business, because he may possibly buy or sell stolen goods. Something he says has happened once in his eight years.

“We are being targeted for something we shouldn’t be.”

Besides non-profit resellers like Goodwill, and garage sales, the language of the bill encompasses stores like the Pioneer Trading Post and flea markets.

The assault on our liberties continues, and continues, and……….

Your Good Grief, how stupid can they get moment!

From Oregon comes an unbelievably inane story about just how incompetent big government can be. Via Hot Air

The Institute for Justice will fight another interesting case on business licensing, this time in Oregon, where an 80-year-old barber with 50 years experience has been told he needs to go back to school to qualify for his license.  Just as in the case of Louisiana casket makers and tour guides in Philadelphia and Washington DC, licensing laws that threaten to kill a 50-year small business demonstrates the unholy alliance between Big Business and Big Government at the state level:

Simply astounding isn’t it? Incompetence exemplified!
