S. C. Republican, Jenny Horne, ripped into her colleagues about any hesitation in taking down the confederate flag

*Yes, by now the Confederate Flag has come down. Hooray! But it’s important to reveal that there are some people, Republications of all things, that passionately supported that happening.

One woman in particular stood up on a very emotional level, to solidify why it was important that the Confederate flag be removed from the grounds of South Carolina’s Capitol. And her impassioned speech had everyone in the room tearful. Continue reading

ThisNthat Quickbits: Watch Man Rip Confederate Flag Off Semi in Moving Traffic

*Some of us will find a bit of pleasure in this video uploaded by Instagram user belladreamhair. It shows a motorist who was apparently sitting in slow moving traffic behind a semi truck with a confederate flag on the back.

Dude got out of his car on the busy freeway and tore that sucker off the truck that was traveling in front of him. To the surprise of probably no one, the video of the man doing this went viral on Tumblr overnight. Continue reading

Not in ‘My House’ — President Obama Shuts White House Heckler Down

*Cool is as cool does. And Mr. President, you do cool well.

I’ll bet the next heckler that decides to let loose on your watch will think twice. We’re wondering sir, if after your second term is up, you might consider a career in stand-up comedy.

Could happen. But probably won’t.

But this was certainly a good audition. Allow us to reiterate. As you acknowledged LGBT Pride Month at the White House, right there in the middle of your speech, some clown decided to exercise the volume of her vocal chords using your name.

Yes, your security could certainly have handled the incident; and quietly escorted the heckler that interrupted your speech out–most likely without further incident. But no, sir, you wouldn’t allow it to go down like that. You, sir, wanted that heckler to know one thing.

“No, no, no, no. Listen, you’re in my house.” Continue reading

President Obama: Will You Accept This Cow? Kenyan Wants to Marry Malia Obama

So you say you want to marry Malia...Let me think about it for a sec...
Hmm…So you say you want to marry Malia…Let me think about it for a sec…

*Call the paramedics!

An attorney from Kenya plans to make the President and First lady an offer in exchange for the hand of their eldest daughter in marriage.

I wouldn’t be surprised if just the mention of the word “marriage” in connection with their 16 year old daughter, Malia, sent President Barack Obama and First Lady, Michelle, into a series of convulsions.

While I am sure the First Family is more than aware that age is just a number in the African culture, let’s face it: We are not in Africa. And age to Americans, when talking marriage, is the only number we see if its 16.

But Kenyan attorney Felix Kiprono from Nairobi, is very serious about his offer. And is drafting a letter on it “as we speak.” Continue reading

Video: White Legislator Claims Paternity to Black Teen’s Young Son, Will Still Run for Senate

Antebellum, former delegate and young AA woman with his child
AIN’T THAT A KICK IN THE HEAD: Teen Myrna Pride told the media her parents used to have photos ‘like this’ Antebellum picture with her and Virginia legislator, Joe Morrissey, with their baby.

*Well, excuse my French.

But if this ain’t a mutha-fuh-ya, I don’t know what is.

The short end of the story is, Caucasian attorney and former Virginia House delegate Joe Morrissey, 57, who was once disbarred and even lost his freedom for the crime of “contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” called the media together for a press conference where he admitted to being the baby-daddy of 19-year-old Myrna Pride‘s 2-1/2-month-old son, Chase.

Pride sat by Morrissey’s side at the event, and chimed in on at least two occasions of the (edited) clip (scroll down to see it). Once, when she stated their sexual relationship did not happen before she was of legal age; and then again as she supported his claim that “age is not a factor in their ‘relationship.'”

Which makes believing their claims that he waited until she was of age, a real stretch of the imagination.

By the latest calculations, Morrissey now has four children by four different women.

He appeared nervous during the press conference; especially when a reporter asked him if he planned on marrying Pride. Continue reading

*Investigators showed up at the home of Michigan State Senator Virgil Smith and arrested him.

Smith, 36, was taken to jail from his home in Detroit on Sunday, Fox 2 reports. They say the senator was outside, completely naked, firing his gun, allegedly at his ex-wife, Anita Thomas, around 1 o’clock in the morning.

Thomas was not injured, but her Mercedes Benz was. Continue reading

Live Mic Accidentally Records Mayor in Bathroom Taking a Leak (Video)

texas-mayor-toilet

*Yes Mayor Rachael Jonrowe, we’re not mad at you. It would be hard to compose myself too if I heard the man who was sitting next to me only seconds ago, in such a vulnerable position.

But as they say, stuff happens.

Apparently, during a Texas city council meeting, Mayor Dale Ross made a restroom run. Thing is, he forgot to turn his mic off and, well, let’s just put it this way…everyone knew it was him; where he was, and what he was doing.

Big time!

We can see the response of the mayor (pro tem) in the photo above, but all we can do at this point is wonder about the response of The Honorable Ross, once he realized his mic was still on.

I mean no disrespect sir, but was it while you were washing your hands? Drying them? What? Continue reading
