Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has announced plans to put his face on the $3 bill,replacing Yosemite Sam,the last remaining white male on american currency.
I get the feeling he’s been using the women’s bathroom for years already.

BREAKING: Music Legend Prince Found Dead At Age 57 UPDATE: Died From Flu??
The dizzylingly prolific multi-instrumentalist and virtuosic performer was born Prince Rogers Nelson June 7, 1958, in Minneapolis, Minn.

He released his debut album, For You, in 1978, followed by Prince (1979), Dirty Mind (1980) and Controversy (1981). All of them traded in his trademark sound — deep synth funk grooves with provocatively sexual lyrics and heart-piercing ballads sung in pure falsetto.

President Obama plans to declare a national holiday of remembrance in honor of this great American.

    in keeping with the spirit of never letting a tragedy go to waste:
    CHICAGO:COME FOR THE DAY,STAY FOR THE FUNERAL

    Aspiring rapper killed, 4 shot while filming music video at South Side park
    A 23-year-old man was shot in the back of the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The victim’s aunt, Angela Tate, identified him as Damond Dawson, an aspiring rapper. She said she warned him about the danger.
    The shooting was recorded on video. The group was filming for a song called “Two Techs and a 50 Shot,” which refers to guns. A rapper, who goes by the name “Foreign Lyfe,” said the camera was focused on the group when the gunman approached.
    Four other people were also shot. A 19-year-old woman was shot twice in the groin.

    The Latest: Black protesters disrupt Clinton rally in Pa.

    LISTEN,BITCHES…ME AND BILL CAN’T STAND YOU PEOPLE.SO JUST TAKE YOUR WELFARE CHECK,SHUT UP AND VOTE FOR ME.YOU KNOW YOU WILL.
    The protesters chanted, “Don’t vote for Hillary! She’s killing black people!” as they were led out of the Fillmore Theater.

    Later in her speech, Clinton said: “I know we’ve got a lot of political disagreements in our country. That’s the American DNA.”

    But she added: “What we cannot abide is breaking ourselves into groups where we don’t even talk or listen to each other, like what we just saw, right?”

    WTH? Park Ranger Mocks America’s Founders WHILE GIVING TOUR OF INDEPENDENCE HALL

    Mary A. Hogan, a federal employee making in excess of $95,000 per year in salary and benefits, provided a tour Monday afternoon at Independence Hall laced with factual inaccuracies and disparaging comments about the Founders and the Constitution.

    Several attendees of her tour group on Monday told PJ Media that Hogan, who goes by the name Missy, had explained to them that “the Founders knew that when they left this room, what they had written wouldn’t matter very much.” Hogan told the group that the “most important part of the Constitution written at Independence Hall was the ability to change it.”

      One must hope she gets fired or at the least gets moved somewhere she isn’t giving out Leftist agitprop in the guise of American history. Agggh.

    Lawyer, family: 7-Eleven, bystanders failed assault victim before he died
    ASSAULTS AND MURDERS ARE SPECTATOR SPORTS IN CHI-TOWN.

    There’s a clear photograph of the aggressor and a clear video of him attacking Marques Gaines. He hasn’t been arrested, and we don’t know why,” Hurley added.
    Especially troubling for Gaines’ family was that bystanders didn’t help as he lay in the crosswalk. At least one person believed to be a 7-Eleven employee called 911. Others walked past him without trying to pull him out of the street or block traffic.

    Within seconds of the punch, a half-dozen people gathered around Gaines, including two men who appeared to have rifled his pockets. Gaines’ family said his cellphone and debit card were stolen. After a minute, the group and his attacker left the scene and as seconds ticked away, individuals and groups of people walked by Gaines without trying to pull him out of the street.
