They tell us that prisons are over-populated. But what if it was the population that was being over-imprisoned?

Happy birthday Susan B. Anthony!
February 15, 1820 - March 13, 1906
In 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed the bill authorizing the Susan B. Anthony Dollar Coin.  The U.S. Mint officially released the coin on July 2, 1979.

Yes yes… Susan B. Anthony. 
I don’t like her. I don’t like her at all. And, here’s why. 
She fought very strongly to end slavery in America. Cool! But, as soon as Black men got the right to vote, and women still didn’t, she revealed her racist self. Anthony wrote and said tons of racist shit after Black men got the right to vote:

“The old antislavery school says that women must stand back, that they must wait until male Negroes are voters. But we say, if you will not give the whole loaf of justice to an entire people, give it to the most intelligent first. If intelligence, justice, and morality are to be placed in the government, then let the question of woman be brought up first and that of the Negro last.”  (1869 letter to Frederick Douglass)

When Blacks were being lynched, Anthony didn’t say a word. When issues concerning Blacks were brought up, she declared them “dead questions of the past.” That’s the reason why the NWSA (National Woman Suffrage Association) was started. It was a split from the American Equal Rights Association because Anthony, Elizabeth Stanton (another feminist hero who thought it was disgraceful that “Patrick [Irish immigrants] and Sambo [Blacks] and Hans [German immigrants] and Yung Tung [Chinese immigrants]” would make decisions, via the right to vote, for women like herself.), and others wanted to basically be racist.
And, Sojourner Truth was stuck in a bind. She had stood with Anthony fighting for the end of slavery. And when that was over, she was alienated by Anthony and the White women she had thought herself to be equals with. She was confused and sad. And so was Frederick Douglass. 
When Anthony was race baiting and being racist while discussing what “women” need and want.. she defined what a woman was… and her definition excluded Black and immigrant women…just like when Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich talk about “Americans” today.

“dead questions of the past”… hmmm… sounds SO familiar.

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Israel resumed its bombardment of the Gaza Strip for the 20th day on Sunday afternoon, as Hamas leader Meshaal stressed that the group was ready to “coexist with the Jews” but would not tolerate “occupiers.”

 … Hamas continued to insist that any lasting ceasefire must be based on an Israeli lifting of the blockade on Gaza, with leader Khaled Meshaal warning that Palestinians cannot coexist with their neighbors while their land is occupied in an interview broadcast on Sunday.

On Saturday, Meshaal was interviewed by US broadcaster PBS in the Qatari capital Doha while in Gaza the party was under assault from Israeli forces in renewed fighting.

A full version of the interview will be broadcast late on Monday, but excerpts were revealed on Sunday on CBS News’ “Face the Nation.”

Asked by veteran interviewer Charlie Rose whether he could foresee living beside Israelis in peace, Meshaal said only a future Palestinian state could decide whether to recognize Israel.

"We are not fanatics, we are not fundamentalists. We are not actually fighting the Jews because they are Jews per se. We do not fight any other races. We fight the occupiers," he said.

"I’m ready to coexist with the Jews, with the Christians and the Arabs and non-Arabs," he said. "However, I do not coexist with the occupiers."

Dennis Smith, the owner of Calabash Seafood Restaurant and Midway Lounge, installed a surveillance camera in his men’s bathroom, right above the stall, as a way to catch vandals. Smith maintained the cameras weren’t pointed right at the toilet or urinal, so it wasn’t an invasion of privacy. However, someone went to change his clothes in the bathroom, thinking it was a private area, and the whole thing was filmed by the camera. So Smith was arrested for unlawful videotaping. But the judge in the case just ruled in favor of Smith. The judge actually agreed with Smith’s reasoning that since the person changing was not in a stall, technically, if the bathroom door swung open, anyone could have seen him, so most of the bathroom is as good as a public space. So Smith got off, and the judge just set an insane precedent, lawfully allowing for cameras in bathrooms. The Resident discusses.
