Michele Bachmann: Welfare Queen

By Yasha Levine

Michele Bachmann has become well known for her anti-government tea-bagger antics, protesting health care reform and every other government “handout” as socialism. What her followers probably don’t know is that Rep. Bachmann is, to use that anti-government slur, something of a welfare queen. That’s right, the anti-government insurrectionist has taken more than a quarter-million dollars in government handouts thanks to corrupt farming subsidies she has been collecting for at least a decade.
And she’s not the only one who has been padding her bank account with taxpayer money............

I got my 25 Action Kit in the mail today.

For the past 23 years, the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army) has been at war with the Government of Uganda.  The LRA has been abducting children and using them as soldiers.  ”It is estimated that more than 90% of the LRA’s troops were abducted as children.”  Invisible Children makes documentaries, which are many times based on one child and his or her story, and sell bracelets to raise awareness and money.  They also have the Schools for Schools campaign, where schools raise money for a school in Uganda, which have been destroyed by the war and they have another program which provides scholarships for students.  Another one of their programs is Mend, where women formerly abducted by the LRA make bags purchased by people around the world.  Inside the bag, you can find the name of the woman who made your bag and you can view her profile online to learn more about her.
April 25th, they are holding a Day of Silence to raise awareness.  So that’s what the kit is for.  It’s a shirt, a dog tag that holds cards explaining the event, more cards to give out, and paper and instructions to write to your congressperson.  Please donate or reblog this and it would mean a lot to me and to everyone you help.  To learn more about Invisible Children, visit their website.
Very cool stuff.

John Ensign bolted to avoid more public embarrassment

Sen. John Ensign abruptly announced his resignation after it grew increasingly clear to him that he would not be able to avoid a public review of the sordid allegations surrounding his sex scandal, including the open airing of details from his nine-month extramarital affair with a former campaign aide, according to people familiar with the matter.
Carol Elder Bruce, the special counsel appointed in February by the Senate Ethics Committee to handle the Ensign case, has not completed an internal report on the case. Ensign also had not been deposed, according to sources close to the investigation, although the New York Times reported Friday that the deposition was scheduled for May 4, one day after his resignation will now go into effect.................

Paul Ryan already benefited from the Social Security fund he now wants to gut

By Kase Wickman

Rep. Paul Ryan, the GOP's most outspoken advocate for cutting and privatizing Social Security, has already benefited from Social Security himself, in the form of survivor benefits he received after his father's untimely death.
From the age of 16, when his 55-year-old father died of a heart attack, until he was 18, Ryan received Social Security payments, which, according to a lengthy profile in WI Magazine, he put away for college. The eventual budget czar attended Miami University in Ohio to earn a B.A. in economics and political science, and landed a congressional internship as a junior.................

Abercrombie and Fitch to pull offensive shirts after "girl-cott"
by Stefania Butler  

Retailer Abercrombie and Fitch has agreed to pull its latest line of offensive T-shirts off the shelves as a result of a "girl-cott' that received national media attention. (I blogged this recently.) The shirts are emblazoned with slogans like "I make you look fat" and "Blondes are adored, brunettes are ignored." Abercrombie and Fitch maintains that the shirts are "meant to be humorous." The latest controversy is not the first for the retailer. Two years ago, Abercrombie & Fitch pulled its popular catalogs that featured nude men and women after protests, and in 2002 it discontinued a line of T-shirts that Asian-Americans claimed was racially insensitive............

In a contentious interview with MSNBC’s Martin Bashir Wednesday, Andrew Breitbart accused the network of being controlled by George Soros, John Podesta, Bill Ayers and Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert.
Breitbart also admitted during the interview that he had not watched the entire Shirley Sherrod tape before posting it to his website.............

Your iPhone is secretly tracking you

New Delhi: Apple iPhones and 3G iPads running on iOS 4.0 or above keep a tab on users' location and store the data into a hidden file. This was revealed by two UK-based security researchers, Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden.
In a post on O'Reilly Radar, Alasdair Allan says they are "not sure why Apple is gathering this data, but it's clearly intentional, as the database is being restored across backups, and even device migrations."...........

KBR, Named in Sex Lawsuits, Called One of Top 50 Companies For Women In Magazine Poll (ABC News)

..............Has you might recall MsSparky.com first blogged about this unfathomable “award” on April 7th. (read HERE) Then main stream blogs Mother Jones, Houston Press, Huffington Post, JezebelThe Truth Has Changed picked it up. Now ABC has picked it up. One would think John R. Miller, III – Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Equal Opportunity Publications (no joke) would be tired of this negative publicity and just remove KBR from the list................... picked it up. Then countless smaller watchdog blogs like

KBR, a company that has been sued repeatedly for alleged sexual assaults and harassment of female employees, has been voted one of the best companies for women to work for by a magazine aimed at female engineers....
KBR has extensive contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Attorney , who has so far represented five former KBR employees who have alleged sexual assault or harassment, told ABC News that in all about 40 women have contacted his office about alleged incidents that occurred while they were working overseas for KBR or at one of its facilities.
Kelly said he didn’t think the women he’s interviewed or represented would be pleased with Woman Engineer’s honor.....

Nebraska bishop: No communion for Planned Parenthood supporters

By Eric W. Dolan

Support for the reproductive health care provider Planned Parenthood continues to be a contentious issue for Catholic groups and bishops.
According to Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Nebraska, Catholic lawmakers who support Planned Parenthood should be denied Communion "because they’ve defected from the Church’s faith."
"It advocates contraception," Bruskewitz told LifeSiteNews. "In its origins, from Margaret Sanger, it concentrates on racism. It believes certain races are inferior. It has certainly a eugenic aspect to it – extermination of people who are considered unfit to live, a la Nazis."
"And of course abortion is an abominable crime," he continued. "The Second Vatican Council is very clear about that. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion supplier, business, and purveyor, in the United States.".......
