Court Compels NYPD to Release 10 Years of Stop and Frisk Data to CCR for Racial Profiling Class Action
New York, September 11, 2008 – This week, the United States District Court in Manhattan ordered the New York City Police Department (NYPD) to provide the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) with all stop-and-frisk data from 1998 through the present. The data will no longer be covered by a protective order as it was in an earlier suit, which means that CCR will be able to make it public along with an analysis.

Late Late Nite FDL: Back At The Chicken Shack, w/ Free Advice For Sarah Palin
As we enter the thirteenth day of the John and Sarah Won’t Meet The Press game, a question comes to mind as I marvel at just how childish and downright afraid the McCain Palin duo has been. What are the words Palin won’t have to learn before chatting with ABC Disney’s Charlie “don’t mess with my taxes” Gibson?

Jimmy Smith with Phil UpchurchBack At The Chicken Shack

As we enter the thirteenth day of the John and Sarah Won’t Meet The Press game, a question comes to mind as I marvel at just how childish and downright afraid the McCain Palin duo has been. What are the words Palin won’t have to learn before chatting with ABC Disney’s Charlie “don’t mess with my taxes” Gibson?  Just in case, here’s some free advice on how to handle it.

Honor – McCain couldn’t define it for Time magazine, so you won’t have to.
Budget – It’s not what you call it when life with the McCain’s provides free corporate jets.
Sunni & Shia – It’s not a band your kids listen to when you are not at home.
Betrayus – Don’t ask, just tell Charlie to MoveOn.

Peace – When your son is not going to Iraq for lies on a mission which has never been defined to kill and occupy a so called enemy who never attacked us.
Torture – What cowardly Republican liars do to other people whom they think are lying.
Constitution – Quickly show Charlie your new shade of lipstick.

That’s all you the chicken feed you get from me, Sarah. Good luck!

What’s on your mind tonight?

Special Comment – 9/11 hijacked

Special Comment – 9/11 hijacked

I usually agree with most of what Keith Olbermann has to say in his special comments. He is usually blunt and to the point. He points to something glaring and obvious that we (I) have ignored to some extent. This Comment is on 9/11 and the Republicans. It is about 9/11 and John McCain. I completely ignored Senator John McCain’s comment that he knows how to capture Bin Laden. I guess I shouldn’t have. I looked at it as the bluster of a campaign. This is one subject no American should bluster about. This is important. If John McCain knows how to capture Osama Bin Laden isn’t it his duty as an American citizen to tell the president and/or to tell Generals in the Pentagon? Heck, isn’t it his duty to post the information on a blog or stand in the street and shout the information until somebody listens to him? I’m just askin’.

2008 marks deadliest year for U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Insurgents killed two U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan today, on the seventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Today’s attack brings the total number of U.S. troops who have died in Afghanistan this year to 113, making it the “deadliest year for American forces since U.S. troops invaded the country in 2001 for sheltering Osama bin Laden.”

McCain, Obama Shouldn’t Be at Ground Zero

McCain, Obama Shouldn’t Be at Ground Zero
WASHINGTON — Let this be the last time. Please, let it be the last. Let this be the last commemoration of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, to be used as any sort of backdrop for political theatrics, even if the show is bipartisan. Presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain plan to visit Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan on Thursday, to “honor the memory of each and every American who died” in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The Democratic and Republican presidential candidates have agreed to suspend negative television advertising on the anniversary, an unassailable idea for uncountable reasons.

GOP Back on the Polarization Trail
“We grow good people all across America, with honesty, sincerity and dignity.” No, Sarah Palin didn’t say that. She said, “We grow good people in our small towns” and listed the above virtues. Her speechwriter’s strategy is clear — to revive the “us” versus “them” storyline for the conservative base. “Us” is good rural, small-town folk and “them” is the dissipated urban elites, mostly domiciled on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. You’d never know from the recent Republican convention that America was about to remember the terrorist attack on New York, when 411 city firefighters, police and medical personnel died trying to save people they had never met.
