It’s pretty clear that the GOP’s Obama Derangement Syndrome has gone off the deep end and has put our country in deep financial peril. This great article goes on to explain just how this terrible “illness” is affecting the country…
The spectrum of behaviors characterized by abnormal mental or behavioral patterns manifest as violations of normalcy, including a person becoming a danger to others, is a broad definition of insanity. Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results,” and his definition aptly describes the Republican Party for the past thirty years. However, since President Obama won re-election three weeks ago, members of the GOP in Congress have gone off the rails, and the consequences to the government, and 98% of the people, represents a clear danger to the nation’s fragile economic recovery. Even though the election proved voters…

Thanks to a friend from long ago for the link above that highlights the racist history of one of America’s favorite soft drinks.
There was nothing “soft” about the original version of Coca’ Cola. It actually used to have cocaine as one of its main ingredients. Fearful, that many Black folks would drink too much of this evil elixir and start rightfully exacting revenge against racist treatment they suffered from inbred idiots(Mostly Southern White Democrats)-there was a repulsive, redneck effort to outlaw its consumption by Black people. Really?
These predominantly democratic, and satanically possessed racist hooligans actually tried to physically assault Black people who possessed a bottle of “Coke.”
Along came the creators of Pepsi, who had no problem appealing to EVERYONE. Suddenly, with the speed of today’s Republicans, who are now suddenly “genuinely interested” in resolving the issues of illegal immigration, Coca’Cola’s creators removed the cocaine and infused sugar as an “appropriate substitute.” Instead of creating liquid-crack addicted citizens, they provided high-blood pressure, diabetes and obesity instead.
Read this story from The NYTimes to see how hard-nosed racism even dictated distribution of a supposed “soft” drink. Motherfuck a bottle of Jim Crow’s Coke!!!! ~Daryl

Here are two good rules of thumb. When a president starts to work the list of who he wants serving in the Cabinet, it’s important to get the Secretary of State selection right. Choose a great or at least a pretty good Secretary of State, and it doesn’t matter if the Secretary of Transportation or the Interior Department is a stiff. Nobody remembers who ran the Labor Department for Bill Clinton or George H.W. Bush and nobody cares either.
The other rule of thumb is the earlier a career politician denies any interest in running for the presidency the sooner you know they’re lying through their teeth.
Hillary Clinton was a pretty good Secretary of State and yes, she’s running for president in 2016. This falls under the category of a stone-cold lock. Her prospects were boosted by the four years of image rehabilitation she underwent as the globe trotting…

Dr. Margo Prade was my mothers physician before she was murdered outside of her practice on November, 26th, 1997. Her ex-husband, Police Captain Douglas Prade, was found guilty of her death, and sentenced to 30 years to life in prison based on bite mark evidence found on Dr. Prades’ lab coat. The bite was said to match only one person-Douglas Prade.
Prade has always maintained his innocence, and declared that if DNA could be properly extracted, and examined-He would be set free. Today’s release of new DNA testing, that wasn’t available back then, has apparently, for the moment, thrown this controversial case into another tailspin for Summit County prosecutors. The DNA does not match Douglas Prade, and as a result-He is now considered innocent.
Just following some of the facts of this case, I’ve always had doubts about his guilt. From the video evidence recovered from a nearby car dealership that showed a shadowy figure, obviously much shorter than Doug Prade, entering his ex-wifes van, to a local attorney taking out a full page ad in The Akron Beacon Journal to declare his wife innocent of any involvement with the murder-This case is full of controversy. See for yourselves, in the link below, as this “unsolved” mystery continues to unfold. However it turns out, the spirit of Dr. Margo Prade, and her family-deserve closure. ~Daryl

On the morning of November 26, 1997, Dr. Margo Prade’s body was discovered. She had been murdered. In the weeks following the discovery of Dr. Prade’s body, speculation proliferated about who the killer might be. Between January and March 1998, Mr. Gilbert and his wife, Delphinia Gilbert, claim, various allegations were made regarding their involvement in the murder during radio broadcasts on WNIR 100 FM. In February 1998, Mr. Prade, Dr. Prade’s ex-husband, was arrested and charged with aggravated murder in connection with Dr. Prade’s death.-From http://caselaw.findlaw.com/oh-court-of-appeals/1188869.html
