About Me

Principle before party is my belief. Lifelong Democrat, but I have no tolerance for blue dogs, tepid centrists, or weak Democrats that feel apologetic to Republicans. The way to win a political war is to fight the enemy using their tactics against them.

OK trooper tells local news: Best way not to get raped by cops is to ‘follow the law’

Oklahoma Highway Patrol official reportedly told women that the best way not to get raped by an officer was to “follow the law.”

In recent months, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol officer and an Oklahoma City Police officer have been accused of repeatedly raping women, often during traffic stops.

After a Tulsa County sheriff’s deputy was arrested last week for sexually assaulting a woman while responding to a 911 call, Tulsa NBC News affiliate KJRH decided to ask the Oklahoma Highway Patrol how to stay safe during a traffic stop.

The department noted that troopers should always be in uniform, and that women were allowed to keep their car door locked, and to speak with officers through a cracked window. A trooper should rarely ask a person to come back to the patrol car, OHP advised.

Fuck tha Po-lice!

Man imprisoned for 28 YEARS after woman dreamed that he raped her to be freed

Man imprisoned for 28 YEARS after woman dreamed that he raped her to be freed after another man confesses

A man imprisoned for 28 years after a woman said she dreamed that he raped her could be freed after a Denver judge overturned his conviction, saying he would likely be acquitted at a new trial because someone else confessed to the crime.

Clarence Moses-EL was convicted in 1988 and sentenced to 48 years in prison for raping and assaulting a woman when she returned home from a night of drinking. When police initially asked who attacked her, she named the man who later confessed.

More than a day after the assault, while in the hospital, the woman identified Moses-EL as her attacker, saying his face came to her in a dream.

Moses-EL has long claimed he was innocent. But his efforts to appeal his conviction were unsuccessful, in part because Denver police threw away DNA evidence from the attack. Police destroyed body swabs and the victim's clothing despite a judge's order to preserve it for testing that could have confirmed Moses-EL's guilt or innocence.

How fucked up is this?

So, let me get this right.

1: Woman gets drunk.
2: Woman gets raped.
3: Woman has dream about attacker.
4: DNA evidence is thrown out.
5: Man loses 28 years of his life.
6: Man is actually innocent.
7: Instead of being freed, Colorado decides to retry him for a crime he didn't commit.

Am I the only one who sees a major fucking problem here?

I hope he sues the pants off everyone involved, even the victim, who clearly lied!

2016: The year Americans realized voting and elections are pretty much meaningless

On our side, there have been numerous instances of voter purges and irregularities.

On their side, they are threatening to broker a convention unless the candidate the GOP power brokers decide they want is made the candidate and not the boob the voters chose.

Carlin was right, elections are meaningless. The Great American Okie-Doke has been shown to be a lie in every facet of American life.

Idiotic Trump quote of the moment: 9/11 > Pearl Harbor BC great people died, not just soldiers

Trump: 9/11 Way Worse Than Pearl Harbor Cuz ‘Great People’ Were Killed, Not Just Soldiers

On Monday, Donald Trump made a quick stop in Buffalo to get one last dig in at veterans before the New York primary. In a speech meant to pander to what he referred to as “New York values,” Trump declared that 9/11 was the worst attack in our nations history (and he remembered not to call it 7/11 this time).

Still, it wouldn’t be a Donald Trump speech without him finding the most callous and horrible way to say something. So he was quick to clarify that 9/11 was worse than Pearl Harbor because civilians died, not just military.

“This was the worst hit that our country has ever taken, worse than Pearl Harbor, because when they attacked Pearl Harbor at least it was military. This was civilians. These were great people. Everybody in this room practically knew somebody that died or somebody that was horribly injured during that terrible day.”

Apparently the 2,403 men and women who died at Pearl Harbor somehow weren’t “great people.” Yes, he was just trying to stroke the egos of New Yorkers, but to say that somehow the death of military personnel is less tragic because they were voluntarily serving their country is a huge slap in the face to both veterans and current members of the armed forces. These were American lives lost in a horrific and terrible way. Not only does Trump try to make it a competition, but he does so by belittling the memory of Pearl Harbor, by implying that the lives lost there were less significant.

And this asshole could become our next president

Anyone want to take Ann Coulter up on her threat?

Ann Coulter: “I Will Sue Every Website Or Comentator That Suggests I’m Transgender”

“With record ratings for her television interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC’s “20/20,” Caitlyn Jenner’s public revelation of her transitioning from male to female brought considerable attention on the world of the transgendered – those born with the body of one gender, but the heart, mind and soul of another. Jenner, an American celebrity first recognized for his gold medal-winning triumph in the Olympic decathlon in 1976, re-emerged in the spotlight several years ago with the E! Television series “Keeping up with the Kardashians” as the stepfather to celebrity-personalities Kim Kardashian and her siblings. That celebrity status and the declaration of his transgender transformation have resulted in an upcoming E! Television docuseries focused exclusively on Jenner.

“Being dead center in the public’s eye is nothing new for Jenner, but it’s a spotlight that other attention-starved celebrities feel is dimming their own respective spotlights. With that in mind, conservative political firebrand, columnist and author Ann Coulter has publicly stated that “for all intents and purposes, I am a woman, too.” This statement, a direct quote from Jenner’s “20/20” interview announcing his embrace of his life as a female, was met with little immediate fanfare.

Shortly after quoting the former Olympian, Coulter continued defending her femininity via Facebook post: “Lately my attention has turned to numerous comments and statements that are trying to also classify me as transgender. I’ve been reading things like ‘She’s got an Adams apple, she has no boobs, her feet are too big for a woman,’ etc. Even though I find these comments utterly ridiculous and have no idea where they come from, I wish to make it clear I am 100% a woman.”

However, the author didn’t stop there: “However, in the interest of protecting myself and those I care about, I hereby announce that I will sue every single person, internet provider, website and TV station that say or refer to me as transgender in any way. This is a decision I have made easily, and stand by it all the way.”

Anyone want to call out her bluff?

Satire: First Shipment Of Thoughts And Prayers Departs NOLA For Earthquake Affected Countries

NEW ORLEANS, LA – Aid has officially begun trickling out of the state, as the first aircraft laden with thoughts and prayers departed New Orleans Louis Armstrong Airport early this morning headed for earthquake victims in Ecuador. A flight also took off shortly after headed for Japan.

Both countries have been affected by strong earthquakes in the last week, and the generosity of Louisiana residents was clear as almost 1.5 million thoughts and prayers were donated to the American Red Cross in the past five days alone, all of which will definitely help victims in rebuilding their lives.

A small ceremony was held at the airport prior to the flights departure, in which New Iberia resident Joni Breaux, official world record holder for ‘Most Prayers Sent Via Facebook’ cut a ribbon to mark the beginning of the aid shipments.

Just for laughs

Is it just me or have you also noticed less and less pro-HRC postings on DU?

The Camp Weathervane people seem do go into random posts, lob a bomb, get a massive counter attack and then disappear.

The pro-Bernie posts are rampant, but the pro-HRC ones have almost disappeared.
