Let’s just take a look at who joined the Tallahassee protest. On hand was Floyd Eric Meadows of Acworth, Ga., who was once in the Klan and had a picture on his Facebook page wearing an SS bolt patch and a 1488 patch. Gina Brashear of Fort Myers, Fla., who likes to “like” pictures posted on the LOS Facebook page, was there, too. Brashear has a long history in white supremacist circles, having posted in 2008 that she has been “a member of several white websites, and an active member in my community for defending our race” on Vanguard News Network, whose motto is “No Jews. Just Right.” For years, Brashear’s avatar on VNN was an image of a pistol pointed at President Obama with what appears to be a bullet wound in the president’s forehead with the text: “Get it over already.”
Although there are several photographs of a woman said to be Gina Brashear holding a banner in Tallahassee last weekend, Brashear refused to confirm her attendance at the rally, but she did tell Hatewatch she is “against amnesty, period.” Brashear, 51, was arrested for felony aggravated stalking last September.
The extremist hit parade didn’t stop there. William Flowers, whose Facebook page warns of white genocide, appeared to be the photographer last Saturday. The Uvalda protest’s main organizer, Michael O. Cushman of Aiken, S.C., who is a former member of the neo-Nazi National Alliance, also showed.
Nearly two thirds of food stamp expenditures go to children, the elderly, and the disabled. The other third goes mostly to the working poor, many of whom are people trapped in jobs that don’t provide a liveable wage.
Tens of millions of American children are among the recipients of food stamps, according to a new report that casts light on who benefits from the program that has been the subject of heated political debate.
The annual report from the United States Department of Agriculture showed that about 45 percent of food stamp benefits went to children under 18, totaling about 20 million youngsters. Nine percent of recipients were age 60 or older, and nearly 10 percent were disabled adults who were under 60, according to the analysis of food stamp usage for the fiscal year that ended in September 2012.
Mercury - the solar system’s most spectacular planet, known to be closest to the sun, is shrinking in size far more than believed till now.
New evidence by NASA’s messenger aircraft has confirmed that the planet has shrunk up to seven kilometres in radius over the past four billion years - much more than earlier estimates.
The new finding solves an apparent enigma about Mercury’s evolution.
Older images of surface features indicated that, despite cooling over its lifetime, the rocky planet had barely shrunk at all.
With thousands of heavily armed Russian troops occupying this perennially embattled peninsula, an overwhelming majority of Crimeans voted on Sunday to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, resolutely carrying out a public referendum that Western leaders had declared illegal and vowed to punish with economic sanctions.
The outcome, in a region that shares a language and centuries of history with Russia, was a foregone conclusion even before exit polls showed more than 93 percent of voters favoring secession. Still, the result deepened the conflict over Ukraine, forcing the United States and its European allies to decide how swiftly and forcefully to levy threatened sanctions against Russian officials including top aides to President Vladimir V. Putin
One of the few bands that truly rocked hard and consistently. They were a train wreck waiting to happen from the beginning, but man could they shred, and drummer Scott Asheton, along with his brother, guitarist Ron Ashton two reasons why.
RIP Scott Asheton
Scott Asheton, founding member and longtime drummer of The Stooges, has died. He was 64 years old.
News of Asheton’s death was revealed by Stooges frontman Iggy Pop. He wrote on Facebook:
My dear friend Scott Asheton passed away last night.
Scott was a great artist, I have never heard anyone play the drums with more meaning than Scott Asheton. He was like my brother. He and Ron have left a huge legacy to the world. The Asheton’s have always been and continue to be a second family to me.
My thoughts are with his sister Kathy, his wife Liz and his daughter Leanna, who was the light of his life.
It’s unclear what caused Asheton’s passing, though in 2011 he suffered a health scare, which caused him to temporarily retire from touring.
Born August 16th, 1949, Asheton lived with his family in Washington, D.C. until moving to Ann Arbor, Michigan at the age of 14. It was there, in 1967, that Asheton, his brother Ron, and childhood friend Dave Alexander joined forces with Iggy Pop to form The Stooges. The band released two albums (1969’s The Stooges and 1970’s Funhouse) before Alexander and Pop’s respective substance abuse problems left the band’s future uncertain. Alexander was eventually fired from the band, and with the addition of James Williamson in late 1970, The Stooges rebounded to write and record 1973’s Raw Power, heralded as one of the defining albums of the then-burgeoning punk scene. When Pop and The Stooges broke up the following year, Scott Asheton spent time pursuing other projects, most notably drumming for the likes of Sonny Vincent, Scott Morgan, and an incarnation of Destroy All Monsters, among others. He also participated in Pop’s various solo projects.
There are three videos embedded in the link, but this live version of “The Passenger” is perhaps the best ever.
And here is some rare Stooges footage from a documentary (the name of which I don’t know).
God damn, the Stooges ROCKED!!!

“One of the torture methods was to tie a prisoner in a stress position and then play the same song over and over again for eight hours, until eventually, the prisoner urinated on themselves,” Holdbrooks said. “Then they would humiliate them, say ‘You’re not a man, you urinated on yourself, give us your intelligence.’”
This particular detainee had a plan, he memorized the tune and then sang it to his torturer.
“It worked. It really upset the guy,” Holdbrooks said.
Holdbrooks said other torture methods included showing prisoners graphic photos of beheaded women and children and telling them that their families were dead and they might as well give up any information that they had.
The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics has news so big it announced that it would announce something. The press conference will stream live tomorrow at noon, but cosmologists everywhere are gossiping about what that news could be. The leading theory: Scientists have detected gravitational waves, in what would be a landmark discovery for the field of physics.
Gravitational waves are the last chunk of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity that was predicted but not yet observed. If gravitational waves have been observed, it most likely was done by the Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization (Bicep) telescope at the south pole. It stared at the cosmic microwave background radiation from 2003 to 2008, but it takes a long time to process and analyze the data when looking for a faint signal in a lot of noise.
A sex-positive duo’s podcast is exploding in popularity as more and more women are challenging the culture of “slut shaming” in the United States. In an interview with the Huffington Post’s Emma Gray, Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson opened a window into the duo’s thinking about sex and their podcast.
In December, Hutchinson and Fisher launched ” Guys We Fucked, The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast.” Episodes feature the hosts talking about their sex lives. “We’re saying, have a lot of sex and be proud of it,” Hutchinson said in their debut episode.
The podcast goes against the dominant grain in U.S. culture, where any women who deviates from what is seen as a “normal” sex life gets called a slut.
America, under President Barack Hussein Obama, is no longer a formidable economic, military, or political world power. This president seems to be out of touch with reality as he strives to transform the United States into a second rate country. His weakness and inexperience as a world leader invite aggression and ridicule.
The Crimea is occupied by Russia. Syria is a killing field. Iran has not given up its quest for nuclear weapons. North Korea continues its bombastic threats. Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, thumbs his nose at this president. Obama retreated from Iraq after much American blood was shed and billions of……
blah blah blah blah
Too many people on the left cannot see the forest for the trees. Talk about being “stuck on stupid!” America has been hijacked by leftists, and Obama has America in retreat.
This nation has murdered nearly 60 million babies in the womb, and the leftists see nothing wrong. Our liberal society has diminished the traditional family and condoned abnormal sexual appetites by allowing same-sex marriage…….
blah blah blahbbity blah

1988 marked an incredible sixth successive cup final for the pioneering women’s football club.
They were the cup holders and had no intention of letting their prestigious piece of silverware slip from their grasp.
Travelling to Crewe with a side boasting the talismanic Gill Coultard, prolific marksman Kaz Walker and inspirational leader Sheila, nerves were put to one side for 90 minutes as they focused only on thing - to be crowned cup champions for the second successive season.
There was no way the team wanted to experience that same feeling of being second best like in 1984, 1985 and 1986 where they watched Howbury Grange, Friends of Fulham and Norwich all lift the FA Women’s Cup respectively.
In 1988, they certainly weren’t second best.
