Bill Clinton's shameless answer to Black Lives Matter protesters

Bill Clinton 'almost sorry' about protester argument

Alicia Garza, co-creator of Black Lives Matter, says Clintons have taken black votes for granted while backing injurious policies
On Thursday, Bill Clinton had tense exchange with protesters
Alicia Garza, the co-creator of Black Lives Matter, is an organizer and writer living and working in Oakland, California. The opinions expressed in this commentary are hers.

(CNN)On Tuesday, former secretary of state and current presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton took the stage at BET's Black Girls Rock show and proclaimed, "There are still a lot of barriers holding back African-Americans and black women in particular."

On Thursday, black protesters attempted to highlight some of those barriers Clinton alluded to during a campaign rally in Philadelphia. In response, her husband, former President Bill Clinton, attempted to bring those protesters to heel, and referred to an adult woman who was protesting as a "girl."
So on Tuesday, black girls rock. But on Thursday, it's black girls hush.
Bill Clinton spars with protester over 1994 crime bill

Bill Clinton spars with protester over 1994 crime bill 01:52
Shamelessly, in defense of his 1994 crime bill, which both he and Hillary Clinton vigorously campaigned for, Clinton declares, "Maybe you thought they were good citizens ... you are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter. Tell the truth. You are defending the people who cause young people to go out and take guns."

But it is shameful -- shameful because the lives of so many who were ravaged by that bill was the bridge that Clinton attempted to walk over in order to appeal to white voters who may have otherwise favored Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.

It's shameful because it was just a year ago that both Clintons acknowledged the flaws in the 1994 crime bill that helped lead to the crisis over hyper-incarceration and the resulting boom of the private prison industry. The crime bill was part of a national effort that resulted in the reality that black people, who comprise approximately 13% of the nation's population, represent 40% of the people incarcerated in this country.

'Why do they hate Hillary Clinton so much?'
Why the hate for Hillary Clinton? (Opinion)
Speaking in front of the NAACP convention last July, Bill Clinton said he deeply regretted sending minor criminals to prison for far too long. "I signed a bill that made the problem worse, and I want to admit it," he said.

When pressed at a recent private fundraiser about her comments while campaigning for the bill, Hillary Clinton said, "Looking back, I shouldn't have used those words, and I wouldn't use them today."

The Clintons have simultaneously depended on black voters and thrown black voters under the bus for years now. Bill Clinton's comments on Thursday were not the result of someone tired of being protested; his comments were the result of someone who has no shame in using black voters to get what they want.

Here's the contradiction that black voters should pay close attention to: The 1994 crime bill and its resulting policies were supposedly designed to curb violent crime.

Yet the bill itself resulted in the bloating of prisons and jails with nonviolent offenders.

Here's the other contradiction that black voters should pay close attention to: There is currently a candidate talking out of both sides of her mouth about black people, black protest, and the things that are necessary for black lives to matter in this country.

And here's a really hard lump to swallow: Bill Clinton's comments attempted to position Hillary Clinton as someone who has always worked for black lives to matter. Pinocchio's nose has never grown so long.

What's wrong here? Military, Hamburgers and Minimum Wage

by AC @, Saturday, April 23, 2016, 16:22 @ AC

Military, Hamburgers and Minimum Wage

Low military pay was not mentioned in the last State Of The Union speech.
However, increasing the minimum wage for those fast food employees striking for $15 an hour was mentioned.

Let's do some math:

At $15 an hour Johnny Fry-Boy & LaTisha McBurger Flipper would make $31,200 annually.

An E1 (Private) in the military makes $18,378 or $8.85/hour

An E5 (Sergeant) with 8 years of service only makes $35,067 annually
or 16.86/hour.

So you're telling me, Johnny Fry-Boy & LaTisha McBurger Flipper, that you deserve as much as those kids getting shot at, deploying for months in hostile
environments, and putting their collective asses on the line every day
protecting your unskilled butt!?

Here's the deal, you are working in a job designed for a kid
in high school who is learning how to work and earning enough for gas,
and hanging out with their equally goofy high school pals. If you have
chosen this as your life long profession, you have failed.

If you don't want minimum wage, don't have minimum skills.

If you can read this, thank a teacher.

If it's in English, thank a Veteran.

Obama “worst president since Hoover”

Obama “worst president since Hoover”
April 29, 2016

After nearly eight years under President Barack Obama, there is one fact that is undeniable — his presidency has been bad for the U.S. economy.

Now that his second term is nearing the end, however, it is becoming clear to economists just how bad Obama has been.

Historically bad.

In terms of GDP growth, Obama is officially projected to be the fourth-worst president in U.S. history — the worst since the Great Depression under President Herbert Hoover.

And Obama will be the only U.S. president that has failed to deliver even a single year of 3%+ GDP growth.

During his presidency, liberals and Democrats pulled out statistic after statistic in a desperate attempt to deflect blame, or hide the facts. But there’s no more denying the numbers.

Gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic health, expanded at a paltry annual rate of 0.5 percent in the January-March quarter, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. That is slower than the fourth quarter’s 1.4 percent growth rate, marks the weakest performance in two years, and officially cements Obama’s shameful economic legacy.

The poor start to the year did not escape notice among critics of Obama.

“Today’s report showing the weakest period of economic growth in two years is the latest sign the Obama economy isn’t working,” said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. “Despite all of the evidence Obama’s liberal policies are leaving middle-class families behind and holding back growth, Hillary Clinton thinks this president doesn’t get enough credit and wants to double down on his failed agenda.”

Mark Cuban: Trump critics are all wrong

Mark Cuban: Trump critics are all wrong
MAY 5, 2016

Billionaire basketball owner and “Shark Tank” host Mark Cuban came to the defense of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump yesterday, saying that Trump’s criticism of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton isn’t sexist — it’s fair.

“People talk about Donald being sexist. There’s nothing he’s said about a woman that he hasn’t said to me. You know, he’s called me ‘ugly,’ he’s called me ‘short off the tee,’ he’s called me all these ridiculous things. That’s just how he combats it,” Cuban said during an appearance on Fox Business Network’’s “Cavuto Coast to Coast” on Wednesday.

Cuban said that Trump’s attacks have been boosted by years of Clinton scandals — and said Trump had simply done a good job making his national campaign about “anybody but Hillary.”

“I think he looked at how the Republicans treated Hillary — ‘she’s a criminal, she’s a liar,’ whatever else you want to call her, every name in the book,” and went with it in his own way, Cuban said of Trump’s attacks.

'Military Times' survey: Troops prefer Trump to Clinton

'Military Times' survey: Troops prefer Trump to Clinton by a huge margin
Leo Shane III and George R. Altman, Military Times

In a new survey of American military personnel, Donald Trump emerged as active-duty service members' preference to become the next U.S. president, topping Hillary Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin. However, in the latest Military Times election survey, more than one in five troops said they’d rather not vote in November if they have to choose between just those two candidates.

But given only those choices, 21% of the service members surveyed said they would abstain from voting. More than 54% of the 951 troops Military Times surveyed said they would vote for Trump, the presumed Republican presidential nominee, over Clinton, the Democratic front-runner. Only about 25% said they would vote for Clinton in that matchup.
