98% of the voters in Detroit voted for Obama, in some precincts, more than 100% of them voted for Obama. And now 80,000 of them have stopped paying their water bills, and are demanding that water be provided to them for free. Progressive Left Liz Warren supporters agree; Government should raise taxes on productive, responsible people to provide free water to unproductive, irresponsible people. And the NAACP has weighed in, saying, “These companies are basically Caucasian companies, the folks who are being cut off are almost one hundred percent African American.” So, basically, white people are obligated to provide free water to black people because racism.
There was a time in America when a situation like this would be met by churches, charities, and communities banding together to raise money to help people pay their bills. But that’s not how it works in Obama’s America. No, in Obama’s America, if you are too irresponsible to pay your bills, you join together with a bunch of other irresponsible selfish people and assert that you have a “right” to things you’re not willing to pay for and demand that the Government force other people to pay for them.
But, really, what else can you expect when the dominant philosophy of the Democrat Party is “Anything you want is a right and the Government should force people to provide it for you; birth control, cell phones, wifi access, student “loans,”EBT cards, transgender surgery…” So, why not water.

Syria: Captive Women Herded and Sold in Slave Markets
The above picture recently appeared on several Arabic social media and websites. Itscaption says: “First female slave market in Deir ez-Zur,” a Syrian region that is 20 percent Christian and is currently occupied by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Regardless of its origin or authenticity, it’s true significance is that it perfectly relays what we do know is going on in Syria — from fatwas permitting men to rape women, to fatwas calling on women to engage in the sex jihad, including against their will.
The jihadis are demanding sexual satisfaction and rewards for their sacrifices, and they are getting it.
This is a reminder of what Abu Ishaq al-Huwaini, a popular Salafi preacher in Egypt, said on Hikma TV back in 2011. He explained that after jihadi conquests, the properties and persons of “infidel” inhabitants are to be seized as ghanima, or “spoils of war,” distributed among the Muslim jihadis or taken to “the slave market, where slave-girls and concubines are sold.”
Huwaini referred to these sex slaves by the dehumanizing appellation that the Koran gives them, ma malakat aymanukum—“what [not whom] your right hands possess”—in this context, sex-slaves: “You go to the market and buy her, and she becomes like your legal mate—though without a contract, a guardian, or any of that stuff—and this is agreed upon by the ulema. In other words, when I want a sex-slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her.”
But of course this notion does not originate with Huwaini. In Koran 4:3 Allah commands Muslim men to “Marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four… or what your right hands possess.” As Huwaini points out, Islam’s ulema, or “scholars,” are unanimously agreed that “what your right hands possess” is simply a sex-slave taken during a jihad raid. Linguistic evidence further suggests that she is seen more as an animal or a possession than a human—hence their inhuman treatment, as possessions to bebought and sold (and as recently confirmed by a top ranking Egyptian Salafi).

Surprise! Michael Moore Is A Filthy Rich Hypocrite
What exactly does Michael Moore need with $50 million and nine houses? We’ll never know, but we can hazard a guess, thanks some details from the documentarian’s pending divorce.
“Roger & Me” is required Jalopnik viewing, if not for the devastating consequences of one town’s reliance on the auto industry then at least for the spectacular displays of wealth said industry affords. So it’s a little strange that the man who has built a career criticizing capitalist culture is very much a capitalist himself.
Moore and his wife, Kathleen Glynn, will end their marriage of 22 years this week in a courthouse in northern Michigan. It’s there where the couple shared a 10,000-square-foot home on Torch Lake, an affluent tourist community worlds removed from his Flint hometown. Moore initiated the divorce, records show.
The house, as well as eight other residences, a $50 million fortune amassed from “Roger & Me,” “Bowling For Columbine,” “Fahrenheit 9/11″ and a slew of other documentaries and books, and other assets, are at stake between the two.
The Detroit News reports that the house, nicknamed “The House that Roger Built,” was the final straw between Glynn — whom he met at a muckraking newspaper in Flint in the in the 1970s — and Moore. They bought the home in 1995, but Moore says Glynn’s constant spending to expand the lakefront home contradicted his message of being a champion for the little guy.
Residents who passed by in their boats monitored the home for the latest growth, they said.
“He is not a common man. No way,” resident Nancy Schwalm said while having lunch with two relatives at Lulu’s Bistro in Bellaire.
The mansion played a starring role in the divorce pleadings.
In one filing, Moore complained the expansion cost five times more than Glynn said it would. She handled the couple’s personal and business expenses, he said.
OK, OK. So maybe they got out of control with one house. But I’m having a hard time believing that Moore, who once told CNN‘s Larry King that “those who invest their money wrongly or, you know, don’t run their business the right way, then they don’t do well,” was wholly opposed to his wife’s spending. As he noted in the divorce paperwork, they both had equal access to the money they earned.
If you took the massive northern Michigan house out of the discussion, Moore and Glynn, a co-producer of most of his films, still owned eight other properties, including a Manhattan condo that used to be three separate apartments. If you took the eight other properties out of the discussion, Moore and Glynn built a giant house in a solid red part of Michigan. Neither actions gel with Moore’s messages of anti-capitalist socialism.
Let’s revisit that King interview from five years ago again:
Michael Moore: No. I hope not. It means that, for 20 years, as you said, I’ve been doing this. I started out by showing people what General Motors was up to and how this was a company that was making a lot of bad decisions and it wasn’t good for the company nor for the country. That was 20 years ago.
And since then, I’ve covered a number of issues and different things. But it all seems to come back to this one issue of “follow the money.”
Who’s got the money? And whoever has the money has the power. And right now, in America, tonight, Larry, the richest 1 percent have more financial wealth than the bottom 95 percent combined.
King: You’re in that 1 percent, though?
Moore: I don’t think I’m in that 1 percent, but I make documentary films. But I mean, obviously, I do well because my films have done well. But, you know, even if I were, I think it’s my responsibility — my moral duty that if I’ve done well, that I have to make sure that everybody else.
King: Does well too or has a chance?
Moore: Well, has at least a chance but that — and that the pie is divided fairly amongst the people and not just a few people get the majority of the loot and everybody else has to struggle for the crumbs.
Perhaps this could all be an experiment Moore is doing and we’ll see a documentary on existential capitalism and the American marriage hit theaters by Thanksgiving 2015. Or maybe Moore, long denied the fruits of labor lavished upon his biggest targets, got a taste of the poison and got hooked.
We’ll never know for sure since the details of the divorce are mostly sealed to the public.
Long story, but I worked back in the 80′s for Tandy Corp. And I met Chuck Tandy many times, and he was in my store (Color Tile) a few times. So I know the story of him and his crew finding this computer in Japan and paying for a factory to be built to make these. Idea being, if they do not sell, we will use them in all our stores.
Welfare Cash for Weed in Colorado
Recipients are withdrawing thousands in cash at pot dispensaries, and Republicans want to stop it.
For the past six months, welfare beneficiaries in Colorado have repeatedly withdrawn their cash benefits at marijuana retailers and dispensaries, according to a new analysis by National Review Online. Such apparent abuses have caught the eye of Colorado’s executive and legislative powers alike, and the state has launched an effort to curb them.
At least 259 times in the first six months of legalized recreational marijuana in Colorado, beneficiaries used their electronic-benefit transfer (EBT) cards to access public assistance at weed retailers and dispensaries, withdrawing a total of $23,608.53 in Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) cash, NRO’s examination found.
In 2012, the latest fiscal year available, Colorado used $124 million in TANF money from the federal government, according to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. Withdrawals at marijuana establishments represented only a tiny fraction of the more than 500,000 total EBT transactions that have occurred since recreational weed became legal in Colorado on January 1. And it’s impossible to determine how much of that welfare money actually was used to buy pot, given that cash benefits are fungible and some of these establishments also sell groceries.
Nevertheless, welfare withdrawals at weed stores are coming under increasing scrutiny, and Colorado’s legislators and bureaucrats are beginning an effort to restrict abuses.
On July 11, the Colorado State Board of Human Services passed an emergency rule, effective immediately, restricting the use of TANF funds at marijuana shops, bars, liquor stores, gambling establishments, and other potentially inappropriate venues.
The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS), which oversees the TANF program, has begun to convene a task force on apparent misuse of cash benefits, joining with other state agencies to work out the details of enforcement, including how to monitor transactions, what constitutes wrongful usage, and whether withdrawals at medical-marijuana dispensaries should be considered a potential abuse of welfare money.
Todd Jorgensen, deputy director of the CDHS Office of Economic Security, says: “For the first time in Colorado, the rule will allow us to deactivate an EBT card if we identify misuse. . . . The department takes the appropriate use of TANF funds very seriously.”
As the first state in the nation to allow recreational marijuana, Colorado is trailblazing such restrictions. Though federal law requires states to limit the use of cash benefits at liquor stores, gambling establishments, and adult-entertainment stores, it does not explicitly address marijuana retailers or dispensaries.
Last session, some Colorado legislators attempted to pass a bill banning TANF withdrawals at marijuana establishments, but Democrats blocked it. The state’s Republicans did succeed, however, in passing a budget amendment that would preclude such use. Because of a legislative technicality, however, the amendment “doesn’t have the power and teeth behind it that a statute does,” says Colorado Springs representative Dan Nordberg, one of the key proponents of the ban. Republican lawmakers plan to re-introduce stronger legislation next session.
