    Must we ALL be reminded, we are heirs of the “One Drop Rule”? From “To Kill A Mockingbird”, a statement of the reality of ‘mixed-race’ folks in historic Anerica:

    “Well how do you know we ain’t Negroes?”

    “Uncle Jack Finch says we really don’t know. He says as far as he can trace back the Finches we ain’t, but for all he knows we mighta come straight out of Ethiopia durin’ the Old Testament.”

    “Well if we came out durin’ the Old Testament it’s too long ago to matter.”

    “That’s what I thought,” said Jem, “but around here once you have a drop of Negro blood, that makes you all black.” (16.78-81)

    Perhaps I don’t understand the uproar…was she not doing her job ? Was she not forthright and energetic in her advocacy ? Have her former organization’s members been ‘pranked’ by their own enemies, from within or without ? Unless there is some malfeasance – y’all look like “Racists”.

    As a result of the ‘Recession’ economic inertia, begun under Bush and in full collapse when Mr Obama entered office – http://tinyurl.com/osrzym6 – ‘truth’, posited without context to disinform (as usual) !

    Not exactly “true”, as detailed on Politifact here: http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statements/2014/sep/11/alberta-darling/despite-news-18-billion-shortfall-alberta-darling-/ …the surplus was last year (June 30, 2014). This year remains to be seen, but estimated at a $396 million shortfall. Wisconsin, by law, must enact a biennial balanced budget. A shortfall of $1.8 billion is forecast for the next (2015 – 2017) budget.

    From: http://www.monticello.org/site/research-and-collections/chain-email-10-jefferson-quotations :
    “This quotation comes from Jefferson’s Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, although it is slightly misquoted. The original reads, “…to compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical…” …not at all the same meaning as your misquote.

    Maybe why he didn’t / couldn’t stand up right away ?

    and…as shown by numerous videos…that “armed to defend themselves” really is only for whites – carrying even a toy gun, or a cell phone, while Black, can be an immediate death sentence. Not all, but too many see their job as “To Protect and Serve” – as Judge, Jury and executioner

    The US is a prime revenue source for pharma because of Government proscription of competitive price sourcing to Medicare Part D. US drug prices are often multiples of world prices for the same drug – particularly onerous as much research is done or financed by US Taxpayer funds / grants to the Pharma Corps.
    The French “Copyright” legalities, prior to the Revolution, were “Privileges”, given to Editors and publishers rather than creators / authors and their heirs. Publishing (I found no reference to a “collapse”) may have declined, as those privileges – granted by Royalty / Ruling Class to their friends & entourage, were naturally abolished with their overthrow and were soon supplanted by less arbitrary, more Individual Rights of Ownership for the creators of Intellectual works: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_law_of_France …allowing those who wrote to secure the benefits of their own creativity, rather than ceding the profit to those who had no creative input or talent – merely Privilege and friendship with the Government.
    People don’t usually go into business based solely on altruism, but many leverage exorbitant income and profit – far beyond their investment – on the dire need and misery of the “commoners”…despicable not so much as a practice, but by degree of abuse.
    Adam Smith (IIRC) also favored “Graduated Income Tax”, the wealthy paying a greater share…though those who cite him rarely feel the same.
