Shirley Chisholm Gets a Stamp of Approval
New York Times, by Ashley Southall

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 10/11/2013 4:10:55 AM

A stamp honoring Shirley A. Chisholm, the former congresswoman from New York, may soon grace your mail. The United States Postal Service announced Thursday that it would print a stamp recognizing Ms. Chisholm, the first black woman to serve in Congress and the first woman to seek the Democratic presidential nomination, in its Black Heritage stamp series next year. Ms. Chisholm, who was elected to Congress from New York in 1968, earned a reputation as an outspoken liberal and an advocate for women, minorities and the poor. She successfully pushed to expand the nation’s food

Comments:
Fortunately, we don´t have to lick stamps anymore. But, putting that face on an envelope could be disturbing anyway. PIAPS is sure to demand Herself´s own postal stamp, not realizing that Chisholm died in 2005. I guess being the first white woman to get your clock cleaned by a black man might suffice someday to get Hillary nominated. Chisholm's major accomplishments were taking from rich whitey and giving to minorities.

Liberal standards are quite low. All someone has to do is declare themselves an advocate and they are hailed as such.

Better run the design past Michelle.

They had to trash her "Let´s move" stamps because they showed kids in positions that would get them hurt and not diverse enough.

I guess it´s hard to find a Hispanic, transgendered, disabled skateborder.

I remember her name so well. I had heard a few sound bites from her and was convinced she should be our president. Mind you, I wasn´t quite old enough to vote then and I was still coming out from under my parents hard-line Democrat influence. But the thought of a black woman as president was irresistible to my 20 year old mind full of mush.
And that, boys and girls, is why young people shouldn´t be allowed to vote. They absolutely do not know what they are doing.

Washington - Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday that former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney "set a tone" for the interrogation and detention programs conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Pelosi said she believed Cheney, an influential figure in U.S. security policy under former President George W. Bush, was proud of the CIA´s actions during the Republican administration. "I do believe that during the Bush-Cheney administration, that Vice President Cheney set a tone and an attitude for the CIA," Pelosi said on CNN´s "State of the Union" program.

Philadelphia - Sam Robinson said it’s been about 15 years since he last played the videogame Tetris on a Game Boy. On Saturday night, he played it on the side of a skyscraper. Robinson, 30, was among the hundreds of Tetris fans who had a little fun Saturday with a big version of the classic video game on the side of the 29-story Cira Centre in downtown Philadelphia. “It has been probably 15 years since I played Tetris last on a Game Boy, and it’s much different playing on the side of building that’s a half-mile away,” the city resident said. “Everything’s happening so quick.” The hundreds of LED lights embedded in the building’s glass facade

Washington - After all the trouble stirred up by the selfie David Ortiz took with President Barack Obama, the White House may ban selfies. On CBS’s “Face the Nation,” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer says the promotional stunt orchestrated by Samsung may have ruined the fun for everyone else. “Well, (Obama) obviously didn´t know anything about Samsung´s connection to this,” he said. “And perhaps maybe this will be the end of all selfies.”

Kevin Spacey Turns Back On

Kevin Spacey is not your average Hollywood actor, by any means. Although he did meet with Hugo Chavez in 2007 and tends to keep his personal life very private, he just wrote a strongly worded statement in defense of the Venezuelan protestors on his blog. Some key points: “These students were standing for basic human freedoms and engaging in the right to protest, which is a sacred right whether in Boston, Belarus, or Venzuela.” “I support all of the Venezuelans who peacefully and non-violently claim their right to self-determination and protest.” “We who are fortunate enough to live in freedom must stand up to oppression and

Final day for Sears
flagship store in the Loop

Sears flagship store in the Loop will close its doors to retail customers on Sunday. Most of the store’s 160 employees are part-time hourly, but those eligible will get severance and be able to apply for openings at other local Sears and Kmart stores, the company has said. Sears will keep 150 employees who work in e-commerce and information technology on the fourth floor of the building at 2 N. State St. The store, which the company said has lost millions of dollars since opening, started liquidating merchandise on Jan. 26. The store opened about 13 years ago, on May 23, 2001, with $13.5 million in city tax-increment financing support.

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will attend Wednesday´s memorial service for the victims of last week´s shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, a top White House official announced. Obama vowed after the shootings that "We´re going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened" at Fort Hood, where three soldiers were killed and 16 wounded Wednesday afternoon by a soldier who then took his own life.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) bought $11.6 million worth of computer software the agency never used, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). TIGTA attributed the error to poor management and a lack of inventory of more than $200 million in software purchased by the IRS, according to an audit released Thursday. “Software license management at the IRS is not being adequately performed,” the audit said. “Efficient and cost-effective management of the IRS’s software assets is crucial to ensuring that information technology services continue to support the IRS’s business operations and

Is it too farfetched to connect the dots between a brilliant Wall Street Journal op-ed by Charles Koch, the chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, and the continued sluggish recovery in jobs, business investment and the overall economy? I don´t think so. In his piece, Koch seems to make a plea for a big dose of free-market capitalism. He argues, "The central belief and fatal conceit of the current administration is that you are incapable of running your own life, but those in power are capable of running it for you. This is the essence of big government and collectivism." Charles Koch and his brother David have been vilified by the left for fighting

On Thursday, the Justice Department announced the biggest environmental settlement in history with Anadarko Petroleum, reaching a $5.15 billion deal to clean up dozens of sites across the United States and compensate more than 7,000 people living with the effects of the contamination. The accord arose out of a lawsuit in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court concerning Tronox, a paint materials manufacturer and unit of the company Kerr-McGee, an Anadarko subsidiary. Anadarko bought Kerr-McGee after it had spun off Tronox, but plaintiffs and Justice Dept. officials charged this was merely an attempt to avoid taking financial

Canada’s wounded warriors are now being told they cannot criticize military leadership if they want to receive medical treatment, a top Canadian newspaper reported Wednesday. Injured troops are first being told they must sign a form that requires they do not discuss “your views on any military subject” and should not “write anything that might discourage others or make them dissatisfied with their conditions or their employment,” The National Post reported. A top Canadian military officer, Col. Gerry Blais, director of the nation’s casualty support management, said the form is for troops’ own good.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.
