snip: Thanksgiving Day celebrates not justice or equality but aggression and enslavement. It affirms the genocidal beliefs that destroyed millions of Native American people and their cultures from the Pilgrim landings to the 20th century.
It's not just our nation's legislators that enjoy a "revolving door" -- one that moves them from Congress to the private sector and back again, to the mutual benefit of legislators and certain industries… not so much the rest of America. There's another revolving door out there -- one that keeps bad cops employed in the law enforcement sector. It's incredibly difficult for police departments to shed their "bad apples," what with police unions pushing back hard on the few occasions that the blue line fails to hold. But even if they do manage to cut one loose, there's a good chance this former officer will just end up carrying a badge and gun for someone else. As we covered earlier this year, the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department made sure a plethora of bad cops weren't hurting for money, either by bringing them on board directly or placing them in open positions at the jails under its control.
Shh—listen: right now, somewhere, someone, probably someone you know, is making an impassioned argument that if the government would just stop letting these corporations ship our jobs overseas and start investing in American manufacturing, the U.S. would return to its global leadership position with a singing economy.

New superconductor-powered wind turbines could be installed off the coast of Australia within the next five years to finally take advantage of the country’s 35,000 km of coastline, which offers up some of the best wind resources in the world.
Walmart, who pays its workers so little and/or gives them so few hours, that they cannot feed themselves while the Walton family rakes in billions, does have its sense of humor. Either that or they could just care so little about what anyone thinks that they are just like, whatever, what are you going to do about it anyway except buy more junk you don’t need from us on Black Friday?
Mortgage Movies Sees Baltimore MD Bankruptcy Clerk Get Pissy When Asked About Hearing Notice.
Three days notice for a BK hearing? I don't think that's appropriate. So why did it happen?
Yah they reset the hearing but what bullshit. And BTW the Debtor's case was in the section of Court handled by the first Clerk, last name started with an "A."
The second clerk was totally chill, "L-Z" probably because she had no part in this fiasco.
