Illinois School Board President James Meeks attempts to disrupt a press conference of parent groups, educators and public officials, protesting the expansion of charter school funding in Illinois. Meeks secretly applied for a federal grant for start-up money for 48 charter schools which would then be maintained by local funding. 24 of the charters would be in Chicago and 24 would be downstate.

I am better now but the last 48 hours I have endured a bout of the “24-hour flu.” My friend and fellow blogger, Glen Brown, sent along this get-well message:

I read a book about Dos Passos and according to this
D.P. ended up in the Hollywood Hills reading the
Wall Street Journal.

This seems to happen often with many.

What hardly ever happens is
a man going from being a young conservative to a
wild-ass radical in old

Young conservatives become old
but when a young radical continues on to become an
old radical
he is looked upon much like a man from a mental

Such is politics and you can have

The Black Lives Matter protester attacked during Donald’s Trump’s Birmingham rally said he was punched, kicked and called “n****r” while a group of eight or nine people were on top of him.

Mercutio Southall Jr., a well-known activist who said he has been tased at least 30 times and just recently marched heavily –armed through a Birmingham neighborhood to teach people about gun rights, said he is sore after today’s pummeling but doesn’t think he was seriously injured.

“I’m alive,” Southall told in his first interview since he was escorted out of the Birmingham- Jefferson Convention Complex.


“The Prefecture of Police of Paris informed the Coalition Climat 21 this afternoon that due to the heightened security situation, the government will not allow the Global Climate March planned in Paris for 29 November and the mobilizations planned for 12 December”.

  1. From the Trump protester article: “The protester could be heard saying: “Black lives matter,” and removed a sweatshirt to reveal a T-shirt adorned with the phrase. At least one attendee said: “All lives matter” in response.” So I’m sure this attendee would agree that we should greatly increase our acceptance of Syrian refugees and expedite the processing, right? And that we should be offering sanctuary to the unaccompanied minors who still come across our southern border in droves, right?

    Yeah, I didn’t think so.

  2. What that attendee meant by “all lives matter” was “all lives matter,……….. but only if you are wealthy and a member of the tea party”

  3. Regarding the Hillary image problem, I hope that Americans can read into who and what she really is as we get closer to the election. Do a Google search to see who the chief contributors to the Clinton Global Initiative are. A vote for Hillary is a vote for Wall Street and a vote for Monsanto.

    Wall Street and Monsanto are powerful enough already in their quest for world dominance. We don’t need to make it any easier for them by electing Hillary Clinton. I’m voting for Bernie Sanders.
