The southern region of Sudan that is mostly Christian and animist voted overwhelmingly this month to secede from the predominantly Muslim north. President Obama congratulated Sudan on Sunday for splitting without violence or civil war:
“The sight of so many Sudanese casting their votes in a peaceful and orderly fashion was an inspiration to the world and a tribute to the determination of the people and leaders of south Sudan to forge a better future,” Obama said.
As with South Korea and South Vietnam, the US has always supported the independence of southern nations from hostile northern aggression… everywhere in the world except for the United States of America.
The next four years mark the 150th anniversary of the War of Northern Aggression in America, yet commemorations of this event are being stifled by black militants and the liberal press. Mention of Southern independence here is met with scorn and ridicule. While the American South is vilified for practicing slavery, Sudan’s own slave problem goes unnoticed by both the media and the President. Why isn’t the Muslim Sudanese North condemned for enslaving Southern Sudanese “blacks”? Will a Southern Sudanese army of liberation invade Northern Sudan to free all the slaves there, and will the US support such an action? The US tolerates the practice of slavery everywhere but still hypocritically proclaims the Civil War was fought to end slavery.
The government already uses your tax dollars to heavily subsidize the phone bills of welfare recipients. Now this has been quietly expanded to cell phones.
That’s right! Welfare recipients are now getting free cell phones and subsidized service on YOUR dime! The plan is in effect in over half of the nation as well as Puerto Rico!
This brutal violence against uniformed police officers takes place in a public High School gymnasium. The worst part is that the attackers appear to be adults.
State. Sen. Mike Carrell of Lakewood is sponsoring a bill to prevent the use of Washington’s welfare cash cards from being used at strip clubs, tattoo parlors, gun shops and taverns.
Carrell says an investigation by Seattle TV station KING found the benefit cards are being misused.
The station earlier found that about $2 million in welfare cash was withdrawn in one year at casinos. The Department of Social and Health Services asked casinos to block the use of the cards at their ATMs. Most have complied. Gambling with welfare cash is illegal.
Now, KING has found the welfare benefits – known as EBT cards – are being cashed at strip clubs and sex shops. DSHS Secretary Susan Dreyfus agrees it’s time to tighten restrictions.
