It takes a hypocrite to know one

Every county on Earth can pretty much point an accusatory finger at another nation for its history of abuses or current awfulness.

However, some hit home more than others.

Condemned at the UN for rights abuses, North Korea hit back Friday, describing the United States as a human rights “tundra” where racial discrimination flourishes.

…”This is clear proof of the real picture of the US as a tundra of human rights, where extreme racial discrimination acts are openly practised,” the spokesman was quoted as  saying by the North’s official KCNA news agency.
His remarks came a week after the UN adopted a landmark resolution urging the Security Council to refer North Korea’s leaders to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for possible indictment on crimes against humanity.

The have a point.

Ferguson isn’t about black rage against cops. It’s white rage against progress.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
