’1 percent’ moms hire disabled guides to cut lines at Disney | The Raw Story →

Wealthy mothers are foregoing FastPasses and hiring disabled tour guides so their families can skip long lines at Disney World.

The New York Post reported on Tuesday that rich Manhattan mothers were paying “black-market Disney guides” as much as $130 an hour or $1,040 for an eight-hour day.

“My daughter waited one minute to get on ‘It’s a Small World’ — the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours,” on mother bragged, according to the Post. “You can’t go to Disney without a tour concierge… This is how the 1 percent does Disney.”



Yes, but how do they sleep?


Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says he’s had it with President Barack Obama “respecting every other religion on the planet,” and thinks it’s time for him to “respect our religion” instead.

At a campaign event in Florida on Monday, Gingrich seized on letters read at Catholic Churches across the U.S. that condemned the Obama administration for making birth control more available to women.

"Callista and I were at mass last night, and I believe at every Catholic Church, they are reading a letter about the Obama administration’s attack on Christianity," Gingrich explained. "This is a fundamental assault on the freedom of religion. … If you help me win the nomination and then you help me win the election, on the very first day I’m inaugurated, I will sign an executive order repealing every Obama attack on religion across the entire government."

"I think we need to have a government that respects our religions," he added. "I’m a little bit tired of being lectured about respecting every other religion on the planet. I’d like him to respect our religion."

While he was at it, Gingrich also charged that the current Republican frontrunner, Mitt Romney, had waged his own war on religion.

"Gov. Romney imposed on the Catholic hospitals in Massachusetts, a position against their conscious," he said, possibly referring to the misleading claim that Romney supported government-subsidized abortions. He could have also been referencing a decision the former Massachusetts governor made to provide the Plan B birth control pill under Medicaid.

"Gov. Romney cut off Kosher meals for Jewish senior citizens who were on Medicaid to save $5 a day," Gingrich continued.

The New York Post reported last week that that Romney had used his veto in 2003 to reject $600,000 in funds that would have allowed poor Jewish nursing homes to get Kosher meals.

Oh, come on Newt, you’re just baiting now.

Branden Lane, an activist with Wisconsin Jobs Now and Take Back The Capitol, discusses his attempt to videotape Bill O’Reilly on Dec. 7 near the White House. O’Reilly made a statement on FOX News tonight that he was worried Lane “might have had a knife” and attempted to press charges. Lane doesn’t want this incident to take away from the real issue that brought him to Washington, saying, “There are many people around this country who are unemployed, who are underemployed, and they are ready to fight back.”

THIS FAGGOT IS A SIX-YEAR DISABLED U.S. ARMY VETERAN!

Last night we reported that Joey Boots, a LGBT activist and 6 year military veteran was called a “faggot “ by a Brookfield Security Guard guarding Zuccotti Park at  Occupy Wall Street

News has just come down that Brookfield Properties finally has done at least one decent thing and has  just fired the homophobic low-life neanderthal.

John Del Signore with Gothamist reports:

Matthew Cherry, a spokesman for Brookfield, tells us, “His comment was offensive and inexcusable, and we have a policy of zero tolerance for such behavior. In accordance with our code of conduct he’s been terminated from his work with Brookfield.” Cherry clarified that the unidentified man was a security subcontractor; when asked what company was doing the subcontracting and whether it was still under contract with Brookfield, Cherry declined further comment.

I hope yopu enjoy the unemployment line homophobe and may the video of you calling a gay military veteran “faggot” on camera haunt you the rest of your life.
