MSBNC Producer Leaves Ed Show To Join Bernie Sanders Campaign (VIDEO)

Sanders and Jones by James Holm

It’s no secret that Ed Schultz from MSNBC’s The Ed Show is a fan of Bernie Sanders. Two paired up for Sanders’ first interview as a Presidential candidate. The shows booking producer, Arianna Jones, has also long been a fan of Sanders and just recently announced that she’s leaving The Ed Show to help run Sanders’ presidential campaign and will be working as his Deputy Communications Manager out of the Burlington, Vermont headquarters.

Arianna Jones, a University of Vermont graduate, has also made no secret of her support for Bernie Sanders. Her Twitter feed is chock full of Bernie Sanders. And the likes of Bill Nye:

In a recent interview with Sanders, Schultz asked:

Senator, I want your personal reaction to the amount of people that are coming out to see you speak and meet you and hear from you in Iowa. We’re eight months away from the caucuses, and these are crowds that we haven’t seen in contemporary times. What’s your reaction to 700, 800, 1,000 people, 1,100 people showing up to see Bernie Sanders?

To which Sanders replied:

In Minneapolis we had 4,000 people… It’s kind of mind blowing… I think, Ed, what it tells us is there is an enormous frustration today with establishment economics and the greed of the big money interests, establishment politics and the degree to which the wealthy are dominating the political system. People in this country are angry and they want real change, they want a government that works for them and not just the billionaire campaign contributors.

Jeb Bush Has A Shame and Humiliation Fetish

In 1995, GOP Presidential hopeful and brother and son of W and HW respectively, published a book entitled Profiles in Character. According to Huffington Post, there is a chapter entitled The Restoration of Shame. In it he laments that young people are shirking their parental responsibilities because they have “no reason to feel shame:”

One of the reasons more young women are giving birth out of wedlock and more young men are walking away from their paternal obligations is that there is no longer a stigma attached to this behavior, no reason to feel shame. Many of these young women and young men look around and see their friends engaged in the same irresponsible conduct. Their parents and neighbors have become ineffective at attaching some sense of ridicule to this behavior. There was a time when neighbors and communities would frown on out of wedlock births and when public condemnation was enough of a stimulus for one to be careful.

In 2001, as Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush allowed a law to go into effect requiring single women planning to put their infants up for adoption to publish the names of every sexual partner they may have had that may be the father of the infant(s) in question. It was dubbed the “Scarlet Letter” law.  The bill was intended to notify potential fathers in the event that the father was willing and able to take responsibility of raising the child that he conceived.

In addition to the names of the fathers, the women were also required to publish in newspapers the dates and places of sexual acts that may have caused the conception of the child as well as disclosing their own names, ages, height, weight, hair and eye color, race and the child’s name and birth place. And a description of the possible father(s) . The ads were required to run once per week for a month in the community or communities that they believe that children were conceived.

Not surprisingly, this law was later found unconstitutional.

In 2003 that law was repealed and replaced with a new law that established a “Father Registry” for men to register if they believe that they may be the father of a child. Conversely, the fathers would have to register, providing the name, address and physical description of the mother as well as the date and place(s) where they believed that the conception may have taken place, in order to preserve and protect their parental rights.

At the time Howard Simon of Florida’s ACLU was quoted as saying:

Only a male-dominated legislature could possibly pass a law that facilitates adoptions by requiring public humiliation of women.

In 2003, The New York Times reported that Charlotte Danciu, a Bacon Raton attorney who represented four women and two minor in a suit against the legislation as saying:

I had a woman come to me who had a child 10 years ago while in college and now her husband of five years wants to adopt her child and in order to do that she had to put her name, her daughter’s name and all the men she slept with in college in her college newspaper.

Huffington Post also points out that Jeb Bush is an advocate for publicly shaming children and students and people on public assistance, even saying something–in writing, in his book–that, “For many, it is more shameful to work than to take public assistance — that is how backward shame has become!”

Is THIS the person we want running our country? Just say NO to Jeb Bush in 2016–or ever.

I wonder what his wife and children have to say about this line of thinking.

Congressman Hastings Is All Out Of F*ucks (VIDEO)

My sister, who lives in Texas, was kind enough to share this video with me wherein Alcee Hastings (a congressman from Florida) is all out of fucks to give.  He tells the congressman from Texas EXACTLY what he thinks about Texas. And it’s delicious.

WATCH:

He was later quoted as saying:

I love Texans, but I do not like their policy makers who are in the majority. The simple fact of the matter is, evidently, I touched a nerve deep in the heart of Texas. And I would ask them to tie a yellow rose around it and do like ‘Frozen’ and ‘Let It Go.’

The Most Beautiful Flatulence Ever Recorded (VIDEO)

For those of you that follow my facebook page, you know that I’m a woman that really appreciates a good fart. In fact, I have recommended cherries and cherry juice for those that want a virtual symphony of flatulence each morning.  Plus, it’s really good for your joints. And it aids in a good night’s sleep. I prefer the tart cherry juice over the black cherry juice myself.

Anyway, I found someone that enjoys a good fart as much as I do. And apparently his brother does too.  Because he made his fart, literally, into a symphony for his brother.

You’re welcome.

Australian Comedian Blows Gun Nuts Away With Facts (VIDEO)

Jim Jeffries On American Gun Nuts

“Your First Amendment means I can say your Second Amendment sucks dicks! And unless you’re an American Indian, you’re a fucking immigrant as well! So, fuck off!”

Jim Jefferies is an Australian comedian who experienced a home invasion when he was living in England. He doesn’t wish he had a gun.

In the video below Jefferies details how Australia experienced the Port Arthur massacre in 1996. The deadliest massacre in history. There were also massacres in each of the ten years prior. After the 1996 massacre Australia said, “Not One More” and they actually meant it. Wasn’t just a meme. Australia changed their gun laws and… no  more massacres.

I don’t want to spoil it for you, because he makes some excellent points.
