Remember hearing something about that Boston University professor and her tweets

about whites?  Seems racist, ignorant and bigoted are considered qualifications at Boston U.
Ah, here's a key to understanding this crap:
...incoming Assistant Professor of Sociology and African-American Studies...
So demanding she actually deal with facts in history is probably racist.  Or something.

Can someone explain why, other than the President sniffing "I don't want to!", large masses of these bastards haven't been blown into mulch?
“And they told them first – they gave them an option. They said, ‘Will you become a Muslim? Will you convert to Islam?’

“And many of them said no,” Isaac continued. “And they told them, ‘You are going to be Muslim regardless, because we are going to sleep with you. And the moment that we do that, once we rape you, you will be Muslim.’”

Speaking of terrorists, or at least molesters and apologists,
The inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security remains “deeply concerned” whether the agency charged with maintaining internal security is up to the task.
(by the way, this 'maintaining internal security' line is such horseshit it's amazing)
John Roth told the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee that the Transportation Security Administration, an arm of DHS responsible for ensuring airport safety and screening passengers before boarding, faces “significant challenges” in contracting for goods and services.

“Despite spending billions on aviation security technology, our testing of certain systems has revealed no resulting improvement,” Roth said.
The inspector general said his office has issued hundreds of recommendations with the intent of improving TSA’s efficiency and effectiveness to little avail.
Hey, they're busy looking the other way while their agents commit sexual assault and such, you expect them to worry about actually stopping bad guys?  Let alone worry about the kind of basic crap that can put a private company out of business?
In a report issued May 11, the inspector general’s office found that TSA has failed to provide the nation’s airports policies and procedures regarding the maintenance of its security equipment, a drawback that could carry dire consequences.
Ok, this is some of the most basic shit there is, and they haven't bothered?
The report found that the agency hasn’t, for instance, offered airports any instructions on the proper preventive maintenance of tracking and monitoring equipment. While contractors are expected to provide data, TSA fails to verify that necessary maintenance work has been performed. And the contracts with equipment providers don’t contain penalties that can be assessed for poor performance.
“Therefore, TSA cannot be assured that routine preventive maintenance is performed or that equipment is repaired and ready for operational use,” the report concluded.
Fire the idiots who didn't do their jobs, and fix the damn problem.
Oh, that's right, they're Federal Professionals, and can get away with crap like this.  And then blame Congress for 'not enough money' or something.  Or just not bother to show up:
TSA officials declined to send a representative to the committee hearing, a move that drew rebuke from Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), the committee chairman. The agency did, however, submit testimony to the panel outlining steps taken to assure airport security.

And for my last post this morning, Obamacare is exactly the pile of stinking crap expected:
More than a quarter of adults who bought health insurance on exchanges created under Obamacare skipped important doctor visits and medical tests because they could not afford to pay, a study published Thursday by Families USA found. Among low- and middle-income adults, the proportion of people who avoided care was even higher, at nearly one-third.

One reason consumers face such high out-of-pocket costs is because being forced to spend more of one’s own money is supposed to stop people from seeking unnecessary care. This policy gained momentum under the Affordable Care Act, the New York Times reported in February. As a result, even though Obamacare vastly expanded the number of people who could access and pay for health insurance plans, it didn’t necessarily ensure that those same people could afford the medical care itself.
But Obama & Co. get to preen and say "We made healthcare affordable to millions!"  Which is a flat-out lie, and ignores the millions who lost insurance they'd been promised they could keep, etc.  But that doesn't matter: "We did Something!" trumps all.
