Fuck you all.

It's obvious there's only one solution to stopping this.

Back in the 90s NWA wrote "Fuck the police comin straight from the underground/A young nigga got it bad cause I'm brown/ And not the other color so police think/they have the authority to kill a minority"

Carlos was born in Costa Rica. He moved to America as an undocumented worker and had two beautiful sons. But it wasn't long before the ugly face of politics took one of those sons away. His son Marine Lance Corporal Alexander Arrendondo was killed in Iraq in 2004.

It was depressing to see another billion dollars of failed policies maintained, all the while we were being called out for not cutting enough ourselves. And while the GOP gloated at keeping it in place a silver lining appeared in the near future: for they failed to realize how their own policies would bring about their demise.

So just wondering, how much did the University of Colorado spend to ruin their Statistics departments reputation with this brilliant little piece of fiction?

Any ideas?




In the wake of Hurricane Sandy one thing becomes clear: we need election reform. Had this hurricane occurred just one week later it would have had a long lasting impact on the elections. In fact it could still have some kind of effect.

This just proves the need for changes to our current electoral law, which is largely outdated and not prepared for any state of emergency.
