"Neither young man deserved to die that day. Neither Michael Brown nor Dillon Taylor was convicted of a crime related to their activities on their last days, and even if they were, it wouldn’t be a capital crime. And this doesn’t appear to be an uncommon mistake."

-

The real reason conservatives should be outraged that police killed a white youth

Michael Brown and Dillon Taylor may have been different races — but neither deserved their fate

Forecast Shows Democrats Outperforming Expectations

liberalsarecool:

Sam Wang has updated his Senate forecast which shows Democrats with a 70% probability of retaining control of the upper chamber. 

One reason his forecast is more favorable to Democrats than others is that he’s relying more on actual polls than so-called “fundamentals.”

Sam Wang is a professor at Princeton specializing in information processing, what could he possibly know about statistical analysis? I’m sure the FOX ‘news’ team will have sharp and insightful criticisms of his approach. After all, they can always get THE MATH from Karl Rove.

So who are the Koch Brothers anyways? 
Here are the facts: 
They have an enormous political influence: Associated Press said they are “shaping politics” this year, and three GOP candidates credited them for their success.
They are Big Oil barons, who made their fortune on oil refining and continue to get the bulk of their wealth from the fossil fuel industry.
They spend far more than any “liberal equivalents,” and they spend in line with their financial interests.
They use shady operations and "dark money" to fund their interests.
They pretend to advocate economic liberty, but they attack renewables exclusively while defending fossil fuels.
They claim to have a good environmental track record but their company is responsible for hundreds of oil spills, paid hundreds of millions in fines, and even caused deaths.
They push an extreme agenda.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

Vile photos show the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border no one is talking about

With a spate of huge stories breaking in the past few weeks, you might not have caught the massive environmental crisis in northern Mexico that began earlier in August.

According to the Associated Press, local politicians claim that Grupo Mexico, a private mining company in Sonora with a troubling track record of hazardous waste violations in Mexico and the U.S., was slow to report a disastrous fault in its leaching ponds, which hold industrial acid used in the mining process. The spill released around 10 million gallons of acid into the Bacanuchi and Sonora Rivers.
