People Are Calling For A Total Ban On Cotton Because — You Guessed It — Racism

By Jenna Green | 18 Sep 2017

A woman in Texas berated Hobby Lobby last week for selling cotton as a decorative home accessory.

Daniell Rider posted her complaint to the craft store’s Facebook page:

There is nothing decorative about raw cotton. A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way. Please remove this decor.

Daniell Rider, then received backlash for her sensitivity and responded to her critics:

All those who are offended by cotton being a decoration need to quit buying any product made of cotton!

Below is my response to this race-baiter  ~Angel

The following is a short list of products that are made with cotton or cotton/synthetic fabric blends:

  • T-Shirts
  • Sweatshirts, Sweatpants, and Hoodies (I suppose one could always go with fleece)
  • Bandanas (Antifa loons are gonna have to find something else to cover their cowardly faces with)
  • Denim (I am picturing protesters wearing polyester pants LOL)
  • Corduroy
  • Terrycloth (Towels, bath robes)
  • Sheets and Pillowcases (Most use cotton or cotton blend)
  • Canvas (Some is made using *gasp* cotton, some using linen)
  • Flannel (Some flannel is made using wool or synthetic fiber but a lot is made using cotton)
  • Underwear (For those of you who like the saggy pants look this includes boxer shorts)
  • Coffee filters
  • Fishing nets
  • Books
  • Tampons and Sanitary Pads (I suppose women can start using menstrual cups)
  • Bandaids and Gauze
  • Elastic bandages
  • Disposable diapers
  • Cloth diapers
  • Socks
  • Cotton seeds are delinted by a similar process to ginning. Some linter is used to make candle wicks, string, cotton balls, cotton batting, paper, and cellulose products such as rayon, plastics, photographic film, and cellophane.
  • Cottonseed oil is used in some margarines, salad dressings, cosmetics, soap, candles, water proofing agents
  • Yarn
  • Q-tips and Cotton Balls
  • Tires (Use of cotton in tires is limited – used mostly as a processing aid now)

Did you know that cotton remained a key crop in the Southern economy after emancipation and the end of the Civil War in 1865. Across the South, sharecropping evolved, in which landless black and white farmers worked land owned by others in return for a share of the profits. Some farmers rented the land and bore the production costs themselves.

And did you know that China and India are the two biggest cotton producers in the world? Also on the list: United States, Pakistan, Turkey, Australia, and Mexico.

And did you also know that slavery – yes slavery – is alive and well in the Middle East? Are you offended by THAT?

Vile and Hateful: She’s the one that’s nasty and disgusting

‘It’s nasty, it’s disgusting to me’: Angry woman abuses military veteran after he brought his PTSD dog inside restaurant

By Rod Ardehali | 19 Sep 2017

Shocking footage captures the moment a woman rages at a military veteran after he brought his PTSD dog inside restaurant.

Workers and diners queued up to defend the serviceman who remained silent during the unpleasant verbal onslaught.

Holding the lead, the veteran stands near his dog, which appears to be a Great Dane mix with an official military coat wrapped around its body. The animals help victims of serious injury or accident feel safe during potentially difficult social situations.

Death toll 61 in Mexico quake as hurricane hits Gulf coast

By Mark Stevenson | Sep 8 2017

One of the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded in Mexico struck off the country’s southern coast, toppling hundreds of buildings and sending panicked people fleeing into the streets in the middle of the night. At least 61 people were reported dead.

The quake that hit minutes before midnight Thursday was strong enough to cause buildings to sway violently in the capital city more than 650 miles (1,000 kilometers) away. As beds banged against walls, people still wearing pajamas ran out of their homes and gathered in frightened groups.

Hurricane Irma

Miami is in the ‘worst possible position’: Eye of the storm has shifted as Irma barrels towards the US mainland – with mandatory evacuations issued for Florida AND Georgia

By Emily Crane for DailyMail.com | 7 Sep 2017

Miami is now in the ‘worst possible position’ as Hurricane Irma heads for the US mainland.

With the storm barreling toward the tip of Florida for perhaps a catastrophic blow this weekend, the US National Hurricane Center forecast reported that the most likely path of the eye of the storm had shifted.

The center said it had become likely that Irma will make landfall on Saturday or Sunday in southern Florida as a dangerous major hurricane and bring ‘life-threatening storm surge and wind impacts’ to much of the state.

Florida Governor Rick Scott issued a grave warning on Thursday as he urged residents to evacuate.

‘If you live in any evacuation zones and you’re still at home, leave!’ Scott said. ‘Do not try to ride out this storm… we can’t save you once the storm hits.’
He noted the size of the powerful Category 5 storm and told residents not to become complacent.

Hurricane Andrew was a Category Five hurricane that struck the Bahamas and Florida in mid-August 1992.

It was the most destructive hurricane to ever hit Florida, and the costliest to the United States until Katrina in 2005.

This is what happens when you try and go in the ‘secret back gate’ to Area 51: Two mysterious men in camouflage pull out guns on off-road bikers

Daily Mail

Armed men in camouflage gear came out of nowhere to stop a pair of adventure bikers who claimed they had discovered a secret back gate to Area 51 .

The terrified motorcyclists, who had just ridden past a sign which warned that ‘deadly force’ was authorized against trespassers, were forced to put their hands up when the two mystery men drew their guns.

They were riding on a dirt road in Nevada near the perimeter of the Air Force base where Area 51 is said to be located when they were stopped and told: ‘Get the f*** outta here’.

Many conspiracy theorists believe Area 51, a remote corner of Nevada, houses UFO technology.

But the claims have mainly been debunked, and the site has been revealed to be a historic test site for surveillance aircraft including the U2 and SR-71, and the US Air Force’s stealth bombers.

A county in Iowa is being terrorized and terrified by a mysterious group of men dressed in black trench coats who are appearing alongside desolate roads in the middle of the night.

No one knows who these mysterious men in black are and more and more people are reporting sightings, and not just in Iowa but also now in Illinois and other nearby states.

The Muscatine County Sheriff’s Department in Iowa is now asking for help and any information as to who these men may be – and why they appearing out of nowhere and approaching moving cars.

‘We have had several reports of “men dressed in black” entering the roadway in rural Muscatine County. We don’t have any new information about these people, but we have also seen several posts on Facebook about the same type of activity,’ wrote the Muscatine County Sherrif’s Department on Facebook Monday.
