Democrats Blast Scott Walker For Comparing Labor Unions To ISIS

Scott Walker’s statement was a direct insult to millions of working Americans, but it is proof that Walker is going to try to ride his union-busting the whole way to the White House. The fact that Walker considers peaceful protesters to be on par with terrorists demonstrates that he is not qualified for office.

#Labor #Unions #Wisconsin  #RepublicanExtremism
Gov. Scott Walker insulted millions of Democrats and Republicans who belong to unions today by comparing unions to ISIS during his CPAC speech. Democrats are responding by blasting Walker.

Under his leadership not a single member of the Wisconsin teacher's union beheaded anyone. Way to go, Walker!

[That was sarcasm.]

Leonard Nimoy, Spock of ‘Star Trek,’ Dies at 83 http://nyti.ms/1avs7AK

Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.

In addition to acting, Mr. Nimoy directed films; published poetry, autobiographies and books of photography; and recorded music.

HT to +PoliticusUSA for the tip on this: Jon Stewart Goes To Town On Fox News For Being “Chronically Angry” About Liberalism  http://www.politicususa.com/2015/02/26/jon-stewart-town-fox-news-chronically-angry-liberalism.html

+Fox News and the conservative Media really has nothing but fear, anger, hatred, and lies at this point. They are just propaganda trying to fool gullible people into blindly goose-stepping in unison with their corporate overlords and theocratic minions.

Saharan Dust Feeds Amazon’s Plants

The Sahara Desert is a near-uninterrupted brown band of sand and scrub across the northern third of Africa. The Amazon rain forest is a dense green mass of humid jungle that covers northeast South America. But after strong winds sweep across the Sahara, a tan cloud rises in the air, stretches between the continents, and ties together the desert and the jungle. It’s dust. And lots of it. For the first time, a NASA satellite has quantified in three dimensions how much dust makes this trans-Atlantic journey. Scientists have not only measured the volume of dust, they have also calculated how much phosphorus – remnant in Saharan sands from part of the desert’s past as a lake bed – gets carried across the ocean from one of the planet’s most desolate places to one of its most fertile.

No. No. No.

Boots on the ground from the US is what isis wants. It will only incite more people to rallying with it in protest over the oppressive western country occupying the land yet again.

We do not need to go there. We need to put pressure on and enable the countries with isis present to handle the problems themselves.

I spent the better part of 15 years living on the road traveling from project to project, and would always go explore the nightlife where ever I went. The Swizzle Inn is one of the best neighborhood bars in the country, and I make a point to go here anytime I'm visiting Phoenix. You can sit down next to anyone and have a great conversation. It really feels like home. The bar is hidden away on the back corner of a tiny shopping strip behind Starbucks. Parking can be a huge problem, but it's worth it. The owners are regulars in the bar and bring in free munchies in the afternoon/early evening regularly. The Swizzle is tropical themed, but dimly lit, and has a pool table, dart board, and C-shaped bar. Very decked out for holidays like christmas, halloween, and St. Patrick's Day. Open to people of all persuasions.

While I've never had food here, this place is a really fun bar on Thurs-Sat. nights. There is a very mixed crowd from all walks of life, from pool/dart players, dancers (wonderful DJ by the way), dark siders, alternative crowd, sports fans, racing enthusiasts, bikers, the LGBT community, freedom lovers, etc. This is the best closing bar in The Lakes Area.

This is an excellent headquarters for Minnesota's version of the Democratic Party (Democratic-Farmer-labor). Someone took time out from their busy day to give me the full tour of the building, and all of the spaces they had available are state of the art. So nice to see a well organized center-left party in Minnesota. This is the nerve center for the campaign to move the state forward.
