Good riddance to bad rubbish. Who needs their lip service when they continue to block positive reform of the Voting Rights Act?

      Nobody on this planet needs to be that close to Reince, least of all John Lewis. Lewis has been through enough and has earned the right not to be bothered by loathsome creatures.

    Can’t imagine what it was about this 1994 article that caught my eye! 😉

    Surgeon General Is Fired     Joycelyn Elders Has Been Controversial.     Her Remark On Masturbation Was The Last Straw.

    By Angie Cannon, Vanessa Gallman and Steven Thomma, INQUIRER WASHINGTON BUREAU POSTED: December 10, 1994

    WASHINGTON — Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders, who for two years has vexed conservatives and others with controversial comments on sex and drugs, was fired yesterday after making one remark too many – this time about masturbation.

    For many, Elders symbolizes President Clinton’s political dilemma – branded by Republicans as a liberal in an increasingly conservative country.

    Elders is a longtime friend of Clinton’s and someone seen by liberals as an eloquent advocate for the interests of the underdog in American society. She slipped by saying schools should consider teaching about masturbation.

    After the Republican landslide in last month’s congressional elections, Clinton clearly had little room, or inclination, to accommodate another provocative remark from the nation’s chief doctor.

    “Dr. Elders’ public statements reflecting differences with administration policy and my own convictions have made it necessary for her to tender her resignation,” Clinton said in a statement issued by the White House.

    Elders yesterday sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Donna E. Shalala, saying she intended to resign at year’s end.

    “I feel this halfway point is a good time for me to go,” she wrote. ”While some administration officials and I have some honest differences over the issues, President Clinton and I maintain our strong mutual respect for each other – a respect and friendship that has endured for many years. I look forward to returning with my family to Arkansas.”

    Incoming House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R., Ga.) said: “It’s good for the country and good for the President that she’s departed.” Gingrich had attacked her earlier this week for suggesting the study of legalizing drugs.

    “We are extremely pleased,” said Tom Kilgannon of the Christian Action Network. “This woman from day one has insulted traditional values and insulted the Christian community. She was a symbol of extremely liberal policies of the Clinton administration, and more often then not she was an embarrassment.

    Elders was asked at the United Nations World AIDS Day on Dec. 1 about the prospect of promoting masturbation as a way to discourage school-age children from riskier sexual activity.

    “I think that is something that is a part of human sexuality, and it’s a part of something that perhaps should be taught,” she said in front of 200 people. “But we’ve not even taught our children the very basics. And I feel that we have tried ignorance for a very long time, and it’s time we try education.”

    In a telephone interview with the Associated Press from her home outside Washington yesterday, Elders said she had intended to relate her belief that students should be taught that masturbation is a natural part of human sexuality – not that youths should be taught how to masturbate.

    “Heavens, no. That’s not what I was trying to say,” she said. “You can’t teach people how to do that, just like you can’t teach them how to have sex.”

    The White House learned about Elders’ comments late Thursday, confirmed them yesterday morning and, according to the White House, Clinton said: “She must resign.”

    “The President feels that is wrong, feels that’s not what schools are for, and it is not what the surgeon general should say,” White House chief of staff Leon E. Panetta told reporters in his office.

    Panetta did not say how the White House learned of the comments, but U.S. News & World Report magazine is publishing a profile of Elders in next week’s issue, containing the controversial quotation.

    Panetta said he, Clinton and Shalala had warned Elders not to make statements that clashed with the President’s position.

    “This is just one too many,” Panetta said.

      It is actually 3yr. deal (31 mil)…2016 & 2017 are base salaries of 9 million plus roster bonuses…the deal is structured based on if Marshawn wants to play or retire…it is up to him..but he will make 12 million next year alone (if he retires after this year he will have to pay back 5 million of his signing bonus)

      He was in Turkey this week as part of a NFL outreach program…. ..but that didn’t stop him from being ‘beast mode’ 😎

    Nerdy, Nerdy, Nerdy, you outdid yourself a hundred times over tonight. I don’t know whether to laugh, cry, get outraged, cheer, or just collapse from exhaustion with all the great information you assembled here. Thanks especially for all the great BlackoutFriday photos. That young bi-sexual, hearing impaired young man had me in tears. The destruction of historical artwork by ISIS had me enraged and our FLOTUS’s mental health initiative made me very proud of our glorious and unstoppable First Lady. I won’t ask how you do it, but you have become the only real and unassailable online news ‘source’ for anything anybody needs or wants to know. Congratulations for the umpteenth million time on an extraordinary job well done!!!!

    So, Joe Biden says “Jesus, God.” Be prepared for when he’s really frustrated (Ha! another old Catholic here) and he says “Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!” (We knew as kids that if we heard THAT, there was real trouble ahead.)

    Run!

    Thanks Nerdy, stellar tweet roundup that capture important events of the day.

    Honored to be included in this group. Deep bow, and thank you.

    I may be a broken record on this, but #FergusonPD’s troubles are only beginning. The LAPD was under a consent decree for 20 years or so after Rodney King. This department and others like it (insular, petty, bigoted [and my personal opinion is that they offered training to the local KKK on how to concoct incendiary devices to blame “protesters” for needing an armed militia to incite violence — just my opinion based on what actually happened in August]).

    Robert McCollough, Tom Jackson and others in St. Louis County may be high fiving now, but “‘The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”

    (repeat):
