The truth not only hurts, it makes things uncomfortable a radical agenda. 3 Bangladesh ‘bloggers’ arrested
Detective Branch (DB) of Police late on Monday night arrested three ‘bloggers’ in the capital for allegedly making inflammatory postings on the internet on sensitive religious issues.
…The government on Mar 13 had formed a committee to identify and take actions against those who make offensive statements against Islam and its Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). The committee also opened an email account to receive allegations over such offensive statements.
Because this has worked at some time in history. That time was…Well there was no time that censoring, arresting or executing dissidents has worked in the long-term to stop people from questioning religious or political zealotry. Though the fundamentalists who approve of this kind of tyrannical behavior are probably not students of history. At least not a history that has not been highly redacted. American conservatives follow, ironically considering their hatred of all Muslims, pretty much the same recipe. Repeat lies over and over again. The cult of conservatism seems to believe the magic of repetition makes a lie a new truth, Conservatives Lying About Food Stamps
Just today, the Wall Street Journal had a report  on rising SNAP costs, with the provocative title, “Use of Food Stamps Swells Even as Economy Improves,” with the planted axiom being that there should be an inverse relationship between food stamps and the unemployment rate.
But as Jordan Weissmann points out  at The Atlantic, that’s a false premise:
[R]epeat after me: There are record numbers of Americans on food stamps today because there are record numbers of Americans in poverty (records begin in 1959.)
As of 2011, there were 46.2 million men, women, and children living below the U.S. poverty line. There isn’t much reason to believe that the last year of mediocre job growth has dented that number. And until it plunges, the food stamp rolls are going to stay full — plain and simple.
This is fairly easy problem to solve. Stop paying executives ridiculous salaries and bonuses, which they in no way earn, and start paying employees a living wage. All American subsidize the profits of corporate America because they pay rank and file employees so little they need public food assistance and Medicaid to survive.
This 1863 photograph of “Peter,” a former slave displaying scars from his overseer’s whippings, was widely reproduced as evidence of slavery’s cruelty. The image was sometimes paired with a photo or drawing of “Peter” after his enlistment in the U.S. Army. “Peter” was sometimes identified as “Gordon.”
“Overseer Artayou Carrier whipped me. I was two months in bed sore from the whipping. My master come after I was whipped; he discharged the overseer.” The very words of poor Peter, taken as he sat for his picture. Baton Rouge, Louisiana
