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.

Freedom: Hong Kong´s protests for democracy are clearly read as a danger to the communist tyrants in Beijing. They underscore that this is the land that Milton Friedman once used to teach Americans about free markets. How else can you explain 17-year-old Joshua Wong, leader of the biggest challenge ever mounted against the gray men ruling Beijing? The gangly bespectacled leader of the peaceful protest megawave wasn´t even born when the Berlin Wall fell or Tiananmen Square´s democracy protesters were massacred by China´s communists in 1989.

Regulation: It sounds like the punchline to a bad joke: Former Fed chief Ben Bernanke was recently turned down to refinance his mortgage. If the nation´s former top bank regulator can´t qualify, something´s very wrong. ´Just between the two of us," Bernanke told Moody´s economist Mark Zandi at a recent conference, "I recently tried to refinance my mortgage, and I was unsuccessful." Though played for laughs, it was no joke. "I´m not making that up," Bernanke said. "I think it´s entirely possible (lenders) may have gone a little bit too far on mortgage credit conditions."

SAN FRANCISCO -- The family of a California teenager who was declared brain-dead after suffering complications from sleep apnea surgery is seeking an unprecedented court order declaring her alive, the family´s lawyer said Thursday. Attorney Chris Dolan said doctors at the non-profit International Brain Research Foundation have found signs of brain functions after running a series of tests on the girl at Rutgers University last week. The discovery came months after three doctors, including one appointed by a judge, declared Jahi McMath, 13, brain dead and Alameda County issued a death certificate after her Dec. 9 surgery went awry.

BEIJING -- Democracy and the rule of law are interdependent, and a democracy without the rule of law will only bring havoc, says a commentary to be carried by Saturday´s People´s Daily. In recent days, protests have been staged in Hong Kong in the name of seeking "real universal suffrage," causing traffic jams, less tourists, the stock market plunging and the suspension of schools and stores. "All these chaotic scenes have caused worries and irritation among Hong Kong citizens," says the commentary on the flagship newspaper of the Communist Party of China Central Committee. According to the article, the so-called "Occupy Central" protests

The head of the Mormon Argentina Buenos Aires West Mission, US citizen David Paul Robertson, was kidnapped, robbed, and finally released by armed men that attacked him while he was driving in Ciudadela, in Greater Buenos Aires. The 52-old religious leader was ambushed as he drove his vehicle near two main avenues by four gunmen who took him hostage in his own car and robbed him. They took his wallet, mobile phone and a notebook and drove him off to another neighborhood, in Buenos Aires City, where Robertson was finally released unharmed.

Politics: President Obama has declared 4,000 illegal immigrant minors "refugees" and given them the right to stay in the U.S. Why just 4,000 and not all of them? Well, it might just be that the lucky 4,000 are tied to people who can vote. As some 66,000 illegal minors, along with 240,000 larger family groups, stream across our border confident the White House won´t send them back, President Obama abruptly announced a de facto amnesty for 4,000 Central American children. He is allowing them to apply for refugee status in their home countries of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala without the cost

An “extremist” … “a threat” … “an infiltrate.” These are the words Chinese mainland authorities, national security and pro-Beijing newspapers use to describe 17-year-old Joshua Wong. But to those in favor of freedom, Wong is a hero.He’s one of the students leading the demonstrations in Hong Kong where millions are gathered making legitimate demands for democracy. The protests were sparked after Beijing officials rejected a proposal that would allow open nominations for a 2017 leadership election last month. On Sept. 26, Wong and 12 other people were arrested and dragged out of government headquarters. He was bleeding and screaming, and wasn’t

Happy people who buy as necessary. That is Venezuela, according to the last definitions provided by government spokespersons. The assertion implies three things: Venezuelans are happy; Venezuelans buy; Venezuelans buy as necessary. All that is a vision of success, we infer, in socialism. For 16 years, all that Venezuelans have heard is that, whereas, in fact, they face the same mess, aggravated though, that has become Venezuela. The slogan of the government officer who refers to happy Venezuelans buying as necessary also implies that happiness can be reached very easily: going to the supermarket and buying as necessary.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
