Kerri Washington - Liberal Actress and Activist

You probably do not have the Flash Player (Get Adobe Flash Player Here) installed for your browser or the video files are misplaced on your server!

Though that closing scene in the movie "I Think I Love My Wife" where Richard Cooper - the part played by Chris Rock resists the advances of Nikki Tru - the part played by Kerry Washington will always be burned into my mind at to how Ms Washington would be able to get every last credit card out of my wallet if she did the same to me ( :-)  )  her own liberal activism, while it disturbs me at times- is not able to make me shake that thing that I have for her.

The character that she plays as shown in the video clip wishes to take a shot gun to "corporations and capitalism".   I am not sure where the character's views end and where Ms Washington's own views take over.

72 Migrants Heading Toward The USA Masacred In Mexico - News Surpressed In The USA

Drug cartel suspected in massacre of 72 migrants

The Zetas gang was featured on "Gangland". They operate in southern Texas.

Those who are in denial can't admit that all that is happening in Mexico will some day define the way of life in the southern border states failing an attempt to enforce the border in the United States.

MEXICO CITY — A Mexican drug cartel massacred 72 Central and South American migrants within 100 miles of the U.S. border that they were trying to reach, according to an Ecuadorean survivor who escaped and stumbled wounded to a highway checkpoint where he alerted marines, official said Wednesday.

The marines fought the cartel gunmen at a ranch in the northern state of Tamaulipas on Tuesday, a battle that left one marine and three suspects dead. They found the bodies of 58 men and 14 women in a room, some piled on top of each other.

The Ecuadorean migrant told investigators that his captors identified themselves as members of the Zetas drug gang, said Vice Adm. Jose Luis Vergara, a spokesman for the Mexican Navy. Authorities believe the migrants were from Honduras, El Salvador, Brazil and Ecuador.

It is the biggest massacre to date in Mexico's drug war and the most horrifying example yet of the dangers faced by immigrants trying to get to the U.S.

"It's absolutely terrible and it demands the condemnation of all of our society," said Alejandro Poire, the government's security spokesman.

Authorities did not say why the gang killed the migrants. Mexico's drug cartels frequently kidnap migrants and threaten to kill them unless they pay fees for crossing their territory. Sometimes, gangs contact relatives of the migrants in the U.S. and demand they pay a ransom.

The bodies were discovered Tuesday when Marines manning a checkpoint were approached by a wounded man who said he had been attacked by gang gunmen at a nearby ranch. Officials said he identified himself an illegal migrant and said that he and other migrants had been kidnapped by an armed group and taken to the ranch in San Fernando, a town about 100 miles (160 kilometers) south of Brownsville, Texas.

The scale of the massacre of migrants appeared to be unprecedented even by the gruesome standards of Mexican drug cartels.

It was unclear if all 72 were killed at the same time — or why. A federal official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said investigators believe the victims were killed within recent days.

Taliban Lashes And Then Executes A Woman

Widow, 48, is given dozens of lashes before being shot dead

Its a good thing that the Taliban is not the US Military.  If so we'd hear more news about this.

From Ground Beef To Veggie Meat In My House

Today I went shopping and picked up some faux ground beef that is made of veggie matter.

The two main dishes that I make with ground beef are Chili and Spaghetti sauce.

My kids and wife don't mind when I substitute ground chicken/turkey instead of beef.  

I have never tasted this MorningStar product to know how much its ground beef product tastes like real beef.

I am either going to be a revolutionary or a rebel.

The feedback will be obvious based on there being abundant leftovers or empty pots.

If Mike Tyson can lose 130 pounds by going vegan I am good for about 50 pounds via this method.  I need to bring my family along with me for this to work.
