Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 7/7/2014 1:48:02 PM

NORFOLK, Neb. — A float comparing President Barack Obama´s future presidential library to an outhouse has drawn criticism from some after it appeared in the Fourth of July parade in Norfolk. It featured a wooden outhouse labeled "Obama Presidential Library" and a figure in overalls standing outside the structure. "I´m angry and I´m scared," Norfolk resident Glory Kathurima told the Lincoln Journal Star. "The float was not just political; this was absolutely a racial statement." Kathurima, an immigrant from Kenya, is raising her 9-year-old daughter in the northeast Nebraska community of roughly 24,000. Parade organizers with the local Odd Fellows lodge

Comments:
I think it´s funny. The Native Bray of the Heartland, as Tom Wolfe might put it. Most popular float in the parade.

So now an outhouse is racist!

If you are racist - everything you see has a racial overtone.

If you´re not racist - this is really funny and imaginative.

The "float" was in phenomenally bad taste, it wasn´t racist. Not everything that is in bad taste is racist. The parade´s organizers will review the rules for next year´s parade. That is an appropriate solution. This is a small town on the plains, it is not the same out here as it is in the big cities of the East.

If the gentleman from Kenya is having trouble explaining the float to his daughter that´s probably because he doesn´t understand it himself, so here´s a suggestion.

"Lots of people think Obama´s policies are awful, hence the outhouse."

In the big cities of the east the folks are less tolerant and rude is racist from the right and everything is racist from the left.

Take a look at the "Children as tools for immigration" program, and Riot Squads to stop those who don´t want illegal aliens pouring into their neighborhoods. After all those people want the law obeyed so it requires a riot squad to get those law abiding people under control, right?

Has anyone checked to see whether in this part of Nebraska ´outhouses´ are still in common use? And outside the big cities do they even have the ´comfort´ of an "outhouse" in Kenya? Could be also that the lady from Kenya has never seen nor used one of these "signs of civilization" in rural society.

CNN host and Washington Post columnist Fareed Zakaria has responded to renewed accusations of plagiarism in his articles that appeared in Time magazine and elsewhere. While two anonymous reporters claim Zakaria lifted numerous passages from Wikipedia, the writer told Politico in an email that he merely referenced facts that could be found in “hundreds” of other articles. “Two anonymous bloggers today have alleged that there are 11 cases in my writing where I have cited a statistic that also appeared somewhere else,” Zakaria wrote. “These are all facts, not someone else’s writing or opinions or expressions.” Referring to one example the bloggers

Davenport Mayor Bill Gluba urged the crowd at the “Love Without Borders” event to “work for social responsibility.” He and local social service leaders helped launch the initiative in July when he suggested that the Quad-Cities host some of the immigrant children, mostly from Central America, who are crossing the border from Mexico into the United States to escape violence and poverty. Several people who attended the hour-long rally carried signs, including “No human is illegal” and

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.

Barack Obama’s presidency isn’t just shrinking, it’s losing support among its most critical point — its base. Less than two years ago, Barack Obama became the first Democratic president since FDR to win re-election with a popular-vote majority. Since then, his support has dropped dramatically — not just overall, but among important constituent groups. Comparing 2012 exit poll results with an Aug. 8 McClatchy-Marist nationwide poll shows how far Mr. Obama has fallen with various segments of the population. In 2012, Mr. Obama won among women 55 percent to 44 percent. Today, his approval rating among women is 41 percent, with
