Looks Like Hollywood Might Not Be So Crazy After All

We, the undersigned, are saddened by the devastating loss of life endured by Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza. 
We are pained by the suffering on both sides of the conflict and hope for a solution that brings peace to the region.
While we stand firm in our commitment to peace and justice, we must also stand firm against ideologies of hatred 
and genocide which are reflected in Hamas' charter, Article 7 of which reads, “There is a Jew hiding behind me, 
come on and kill him!” The son of a Hamas founder has also commented about the true nature of Hamas.
Hamas cannot be allowed to rain rockets on Israeli cities, nor can it be allowed to hold its own people hostage
Hospitals are for healing, not for hiding weapons. Schools are for learning, not for launching missiles
Children are our hope, not our human shields.
We join together in support of the democratic values we all cherish and in the hope that the healing and 
transformative power of the arts can be used to build bridges of peace.

Health Insurance Cost to go up 10-20% for 2015

Supposedly due to Obamacare.

You're welcome.

Teamsters show how Liberal they are

Local Teamsters threaten cast and crew of Bravo's "Top Chef" for not using all union help.

..“As any employee of our show walked on or off set, the picketers verbally attacked us, calling the gays ‘fags,’ the blacks ‘niggers’ and most of the women ‘sluts and whores,’ ” the [Bravo] crew member said. “It got worse as the day went on.".

Nice.

In The Meantime

This past weekend, over 30 people were shot – seven of them died – in the neighborhoods in Chicago – most of them black and brown. The mass media didn't pay much attention - they weren't killed by a white cop.

At least he got PART of it correct

"The media is an extremely conservative institution. I’ve been on that MSNBC before, it is an extremely conservative idea. The way the arguments are framed allows debate in a tiny, tiny circumference."

- Russell Brand

What's Wrong with this Picture?

Ron Johnson flashing gang signs with one of his homeboys?
To be fair, it turns out this is a black college fraternity thing.
I've never seen a white college fraternity "thing" so I didn't get it.
