    DEA Agent Was Told Not To Enforce Drug Laws In White Areas (Must Watch)

    Don’t believe there’s a racial element to the War on Drugs? As a former U.S. marshal and special agent for the Drug Enforcement Agency, Matthew Fog witnessed the astonishing inequity of the War on Drugs firsthand. This is his story.

So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?

holy shit

ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading

Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.

for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:


this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit

WOWWWWW. In case you can’t see it at first (it took me a minute!), in their initial chart they put the zero at the TOP of the axis and 1,000 at the bottom, so it looks like gun deaths went down instead of, you know, way way way way up.
(Editorial note: I looked for the source of the graphic to make sure it was a real thing that had been published and found it in a Business Inside article. They say Reuters published the graphic but I can’t find it on the Reuters site or the Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement site. Strange.)
(Second editorial note: Wait! I found it! The person who made it is a graphics journalist for Reuters and says this graphic about deaths in Iraq was the visual inspiration. But that Iraq graph has the axis at the top of the chart. This graph doesn’t. Very strange.)

  5. What is interesting, is that the Frida Kahlo venerated by American feminists is a very different Frida Kahlo to the one people learn about in Mexico, in the Chicano community. In her country, she is recognized as an important artist and a key figure in revolutionary politics of early 20th century Mexico. Her communist affiliations are made very clear. Her relationship with Trotsky is underscored. All her political activities with Diego Rivera are constantly emphasized. The connection between her art and her politics is always made. When Chicana artists became interested in Frida Kahlo in the ‘70s and started organizing homages, they made the connection between her artistic project and theirs because they too were searching for an aesthetic compliment to a political view that was radical and emancipatory. But when the Euro-American feminists latch onto Frida Kahlo in the early ‘80s and when the American mainstream caught on to her, she was transformed into a figure of suffering. I am very critical of that form of appropriation.

The Navy has figured out a way to convert water into fuel

In news that is sure to rock the fuel industry, the U.S. Navy has announced that they believe they have solved one of the world’s greatest scientific challenges: how to turn seawater into fuel. Last week, naval scientists successfully flew a small 2-stroke model airplane running on seawater-derived fuel, proving that engines can run on the energy source they’ve developed. Essentially the process extracts carbon dioxide and hydrogen from the water and recombines it into hydrocarbon chains that liquify via a metallic catalyst into a purely synthetic fuel source.
