At present it is very difficult to find anything positive about China’s excessive control over its society. Some critics are also of the opinion that this very controlling nature has fueled protests in Xinjiang region. This province has been known as a home for Uighur Muslims. Recently, china had made every effort o curb every extremist activity in the region by cracking down on terrorist outfits. In the wake of killing civilians in a bombing, China had also ordered taking down of any information from the internet which could aid in the development of any terrorist material.
The police are out of control. I have been of the mindset that this is something that just happened, but I now have to face the distinct possibility that it has been going on all along, and that the advent of better video technology and availability is simply showing us something that has always been present.
Not all police officers are negligent in the performance of their duties, but the blue code of silence makes all of them culpable since all it takes for evil to prevail is for good people to do or say nothing. I know well the label any officer will get for speaking out, but also... (more)
By now it should be well known, my outlook on how we are given what passes as “news” these days. I think there is too much propaganda and partisan agendas being injected in what should be objective reporting. It’s just my opinion, but much of what they are calling news just isn’t newsworthy to me. Recently I was given a newspaper (cause I’ll be damned if I spend my hard-earned money on any of these rags) and on the front page, the most important and meaningful bit of information this paper had to offer, was a trade and speculation about the effects of it on that nights sports event. Umm...what?... (more)
...contact with anyone in the administration regarding current events. Heck, I’m a low level city official and can’t escape the problems of work when I’m not on the clock...so I’m reasonably sure the scenario is a bit worse on such a higher level.
Sadly, this garbage passes for news, and some actually consider it a talking point. I’d like to offer everyone agreeing with the attack on Kerry to bypass taking a vacation...forever. I mean, if it’s the work that stops him from taking a vacation, kindly explain how you deserve one when your job continues to produce work, even ... (more)
At 49, Nicolas Cage has enjoyed a pretty successful career in Hollywood, both as an actor and a producer. But he’s now pointing a finger at the industry for discriminating against a certain breed of actors. And his accusations stem from none other than Cage’s young wife, 39-year-old Alice Kim.
Cage recently wrapped up his latest film, Outcast, for which most of the crew was Chinese. When doing an interview to promote the film, Cage slammed Hollywood for not offering viable lead roles for male actors of Asian descent. “I hope that we will see more Chinese actors in American... (more)
Monterey Police Officer John Olney pulled over a Homeless senior woman on September 19th, 2012 for "impeding traffic" in the middle of the night, when there was "no traffic". Claiming that she was in violation of "Vehicle Code 22400", while driving on Garden Road for going "too slow".
The code that she was cited for was for driving "too slow" on the Highway, not on a City Street, something that Officer John Olney should have known.
The Officer was even "caught lying" on the Police Videotape, stating that she was driving 18mph and as low as 6mph, when the Police Radar documented... (more)
A lot of people are detached from the world and taking cold showers while their basements are filled with mud and worse as many people are smelling and seeing oil as well. People are getting in fights at gas stations over who is next, as human emotion is getting the best of people. Very chaotic time in NY/NJ, many people lost their cars from this storm as they just floated away. I saw a report that the subways could be partially back tomorrow, but some are still under water still right now. As I look in the East River right now it has been high tide for days in a row here. Hopefully it goes... (more)

It’s Glendale, California, early 1930's. Black people know they have to be outside the city limits before dark.
Mama, a civil rights activist before the title had hardly been invented, tells me about the injustice of the so-called “sundown laws.”
Mama tells me about the hardships the sundown laws cause for hardworking people, like the Black maids who work in the big houses in the Rossmoyne district up near the country club. “If they’re not out of town before sundown, they’re harassed by the police, and sometimes they’re picked up and dropped at the city limits. Some of them even... (more)
Best estimates state that between 4 and 5.5 million Americans are 99ers with an estimated 40,000 more a week joining that total. The U.S. unemployment rate hovers at 9.6%. 99ers are unemployed, through no fault of their own, United States Citizens who have used 99 weeks of unemployment insurance, including 67 weeks extended insurance, and have not landed a new job.
Those are the facts on the side of the 99ers.
