Ann Coulter takes Bill O'Reilly to task on his historical revisionism

Bill O'ReillyAnn Coulter takes Bill O'Reilly to task on his historical revisionism that attempts to give Democrats credit for school desegregation. Anybody who's gotten their American history from books instead of pop culture knows that Democrats racially segregated the schools, maintained segregation for decades, and then resisted to the bitter end as the Department of Justice attempted to enforce the Supreme Court's desegregation edict in Brown vs. Board of Education.

Ann CoulterI don't care how many books O'Reilly writes on history, he has an embarrassing tendency to get his facts wrong and show absurd bias, especially when it comes to Lincoln and Kennedy. Neither of those men was a friend to American blacks, and it's past due time for public schools to start teaching actual historical fact instead of their feel-good garbage.

A majority of Americans believe race relations have deteriorated since Obama was elected

“When Obama first took office, Americans were overwhelmingly optimistic about bridging the country’s racial divide. A Gallup poll taken the day after Obama secured the presidency in 2008 showed that 70 percent of Americans believed race relations would improve. But, two years later, these expectations had a stark meeting with reality when only 48 percent of blacks and 31 percent of whites said relations had positively progressed.”

I totally agree. Every time Obama addresses a racial issue, I feel personally alienated and downright offended. His comments in his speeches about Trayvon Martin's death made it clear that he has drawn a line in the sand, dividing us all, and he's picking the side that matches his skin color. After hearing for the past 50 years from the American Left about how we need to put racial differences behind us and just be "Americans", their most heralded, leftist president seems to take every opportunity he can to remind us all that we're divided into two groups: blacks and everybody else. And he's not taking my side. Ever.

Original Video of George Zimmerman’s reenactment of his encounter with Trayvon Martin for police You Know Something, Barack? Screw You…

“Search my soul,”  he intones, in his most sober, professorial condescension. In his world, we are all Americans, and, Lord Knows, Americans are by definition racist, stump-toothed cast-offs from the set-list of extras on Deliverance: An American court, in an American State, with an American Jury passed judgment about a case involving two Americans. Yep, it must be racist. Time for “us” to “search our souls“…
With all due respect sir: Screw You.

Secret flower planter in Washington, DC threatened with arrest if he doesn’t stop

The real estate department from Washington’s Metro Transit system has recently become aware of unauthorized flowers springing up in planter boxes on public property. Along the north side of their Dupont Circle station, hundreds of mysterious morning glories and other flowers have been coming up in planter boxes along the Metro’s north escalators.

Metro found out who the secret flower planter was ...when they received a polite letter on June 3 written by the flower planter himself, Henry Docter. Henry sent a letter asking permission to continue caring for hundreds of flowers he had planted a week earlier at the Metro transit system.

"Arrests, fines, and imprisonment" for planting flowers

Immediately, the Metro responded to Docter on June 11 with a "cease and desist" letter threatening "arrest, fines and imprisonment" if Docter tried to weed, water, or tend to the flowers. Concerned about public safety, Metro said that they didn’t want Docter or anyone else to be injured caring for flowers that were set in steep, cobblestone inclines.

The 52-year-old garden artist, Henry Docter, who has planted flowers in public places on four continents since 1979, said, "I’ve never gotten in trouble for planting flowers. Never has anyone overreacted with such an absence of common sense."

Obama’s new budget increases taxes on flavored vodka, but not unflavored vodka

Obama's new budget increases taxes on flavored vodka. All because ridiculous government regulations already gave an unfair advantage (and lower taxes) to imported vodkas (which are more likely to be flavored). So instead of fixing the problem (the stupid regulations), the government is ADDING a tax to balance things out in the end.
