Soldiers On Mississippi Army Base Told Not To Say Christmas – 844-292-1318 Mississippi legal aid

Don’t say Christmas,That’s the message that was conveyed to a group of soldiers at Camp Shelby by an equal opportunity officer from the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, according to a soldier who attended a recent briefing.

“It’s unbelievable that the Army would ban ‘Christmas’ like it’s a bad word,” said Michael Berry, an attorney with the Liberty Institute, a legal firm representing the unidentified soldier.

Two weeks ago, a routine meeting was held at the Mississippi base with various leaders of the 158th Infantry Brigade. During the meeting, they discussed an upcoming Christmas football tournament. The equal opportunity officer immediately objected to the usage of the word “Christmas.”

“Our equal opportunity representative stopped the briefing and told us that we can’t say Christmas,” the soldier told me. “Almost the entire room blew up. Everybody was frustrated. The equal opportunity rep told our commander that not everyone celebrates Christmas and we couldn’t say Christmas celebration. It had to be holiday celebration.”

The soldier said there was a brief, but heated, discussion about political correctness. At one point, the equal opportunity representative tried to deflect the criticism by pointing out it was the Army’s rules — not hers.

“She said an individual can say Christmas, but as an organization in the Army you can’t say Christmas,” the soldier told me.

So what does the Army have to say about the DEOMI officer’s edict?

“There is no policy at the 158th Infantry Brigade, First Army Division East or First Army that forbids using the word ‘Christmas’,” Public Affairs Chief Amanda Glenn told me.

She confirmed that there was a discussion in the meeting about the football tournament. She said it was meant to be a team building event and it had no tie to a specific religious event or holiday celebration.

“The Equal Opportunity advisor simply stated that it would be more appropriate to call it a holiday football event,” she said.

But Attorney Berry tells me that it was made very clear to the soldiers in the room that the name change was not merely a suggestion.

“She stated that the word Christmas had to be replaced with the word holiday,” Berry said.

The soldier who contacted me said it was just another instance of the military trying to curtail public expressions of the Christian faith.

“Between the Air Force and the Army — it’s like they don’t like Christian values, they don’t like the word Christ or Christmas,” the soldier said. “They don’t like you talking about it.”

Berry said it’s a shame that the Army has implemented word police.

“Are they going to have the ‘Merry Christmas’ police going around issuing citations to an soldier who slips and says the word?” he wondered. “They’re treating Christmas like it’s pornography. As a matter of fact, the Army actually treats pornography better than it does Christmas.”

It’s not the first time Equal Opportunity officers have caused trouble at Camp Shelby. Earlier this year, I reported exclusively about a briefing at Camp Shelby that labeled the American Family Association as a domestic hate group.

After my story was published, the Secretary of the Army ordered military leaders to halt all briefings on extremist organizations that labeled Evangelical Christian ministries as domestic hate groups.

On Wednesday, Executives of numerous major U.S. corporations pressed Mississippi to repeal a new state law that allows businesses the ability to deny wedding services to same-sex couples for religious reasons. The measure, which also allows employers to cite ideologies of faith in setting workplace policies on dress code, hygiene, and bathroom access, was signed into law on Tuesday by Republican Governor Phil Bryant. Bryant praised the statute – the most recent in a series of state laws opposed by LGBT residents – as designed to “protect sincerely held religious beliefs and moral convictions … from discriminatory action by state government.”

Species Profile: Ringed Map Turtle – 844-292-1318 Mississippi legal aid

Steve, founder of theTurtleRoom, provides a detailed account of this rare species, describing their habitat, diet, behavior and much more. Steve has been fortunate enough to have hands on experience with this species. For more information on the Ringed Map Turtle (Graptemys oculifera), please visit theTurtleRoom.com.

Full transcript of the video is below and can also be found here: http://trtlrm.com/18Bvsbr

Description and Identification

Graptemys oculifera is among the smallest of the map turtles. Males will only reach 2.8″-4.3″ (7.2-10.9cm) SCL, mean 3.5″ (8.9cm), max 4.3″ (10.9cm), while females will typically reach about 5.1″-8.5″ (13-21.5cm) SCL, mean 6.2″ (15.6cm), max 8.6″ (22cm). The carapace is light to dark olive green. It is moderately keeled with spine-like projections on the first 4 vertebrals which become less pronounced with age and the posterior edge of the carapace is mildly serrated. The primary identifying feature is the series of well-defined yellow to orange rings, one on each pleural scute. The dorsal surface of marginal is marked with a broken circle, semi-circle or bar. There may be a small spot in the center of these markings, particularly in juveniles. The plastron can have great variation. Its base is yellow with varying amounts of dark patterning along the seams. The skin of Graptemys oculifera is black with yellow markings. There are variable post-orbitals (one behind each eye) that are oval, rectangular, or round in shape. They are usually not connected with the longitudinal dorsal stripes from the neck (though it does occasionally happen). The chin and throat are marked with broad longitudinal stripes and a transverse bar (“chin-strap”). Males will have narrow heads, slightly elongated foreclaws and longer, wider tails with the cloacal opening 1/2 to 2/3 of the way down the tail and a more juvenile appearance. Females will have shorter, narrower tails and a slightly bulkier build, including their heads.

Distribution

The Ringed Map turtle (Graptemys oculifera) is native to the Pearl River watershed of Mississippi and Louisiana. It occurs mainly in the Pearl River and its largest tributary, the Bogue Chitto River. It occasionally appears in some of the smaller tributaries.

Native Habitat

The habitat of Graptemys oculifera has moderate to fast currents and contains a multitude of basking logs, sandbars, and a wide channel to allow sunlight in for most of the day. The river bottom of their preferred habitat is composed of clay, sand and/or gravel.

Wild Diet

The most common dietary item for the Ringed Map Turtle is insects and insect larvae. Small snails are also consumed. Plant matter is a very small portion of their diet; most plant matter consisted of flowers of the Asteracaea (Aster/Daisy/Sunflower) family or seeds resembling a frequently eaten beetle species. They will also feed on algae and other items growing on submerged logs.

Behavior

Very little information is available on the daily behavior of Graptemys oculifera. It is diurnal and spends many hours basking. While basking, they are skittish and difficult to approach without spooking them. Upon being startled, they will dive into the water immediately. Hatchlings have also been known to bask frequently. At night, they tend to rest just under the waterline on various surfaces offshore.

Reproduction

Male Ringed Maps become sexually mature at approximately 2.6″ (6.5cm) PL. The minimum SCL of females at maturity is approximately 5.1″ (13cm), but is normally closer to 5.5″ (14cm). Nesting season typically runs from mid-May through mid-July with a clear peak in mid-June. They lay most often during daylight hours before noon. Eggs are normally deposited on sandbars. Graptemys oculifera typically lays only 1 clutch per year (.96-1.42) of 1-10 eggs, with an average of 3-4 eggs. The species is reported to demonstrate TSD-1a like the rest of the Graptemys genus. A pivotal IT of between 84.2-86F (29-30C) has been reported. No description of courtship or mating is available, but they are assumed to be similar to the normal methods used by many of the Graptemys species.

Conservation and Legal Status

IUCN Redlist Status – VulnerableVulnerable B2ab(iii) (2011)
The IUCN Redlist classifies Graptemys oculifera as Vulnerable, last updated in 2011. The United States classifies this species as Endangered, which is one reason they are listed on the US Endangered Species Act (ESA). Most threats to the Ringed Map Turtle’s survival are habitat related and included pollution, degradation, and destruction. This species is also listed in Appendix III of CITES and is protected by the state governments in its native range, with the taking of wild specimens illegal in both Louisiana and Mississippi.

Like many species, they need us, those who have helped imperil them, to now aid them in a return to prominence in their native home.

The Secret To Finding The Best Catfish Bait – 844-292-1318 Mississippi legal aid

The secret to finding the best bait is to simply study the environment that the catfish is living in. Since catfish are opportunistic feeders, they will be feeding on whatever food source is abundant in the area. I always keep two or three different baits on hand while I’m fishing.
Here are the links to my baits:

Personhood Amend, a Legal Catastrophe – 844-292-1318 Mississippi legal aid

Elections are underway in Mississippi today, and one of the most contentious issues on the ballot is the Personhood Amendment. It’s called Initiative 26 and the legislation defines a fertilized egg as a legal person. It’s an attempt at striking down any and all pro-choice laws, and there’s a 50-50 chance it will pass, with the support of both gubernatorial candidates-democrat and republican. Find out here what does this bill mean for the state, and for our country as a whole?

The Most Persuasive Closing Argument EVER! – 844-292-1318 Mississippi legal aid

This scene/clip from “A Time to Kill,” [(Warner Bros., 1996) (directed by Joel Schumacher, based on a John Grisham novel)] had a major emotional and psychological impact on me when this film was released — that Hollywood would “boldly go” there:

In order to save his client (and himself — and his family, even), Attorney Jake Tyler Brigance (Matthew McConaughey) had to admit (to himself, and indirectly to the jurors) why he never warned anyone about Carl Lee Hailey’s (Samuel L. Jackson) intent to exact vengeance for his daughter Tonya Hailey (Rae’Ven Larrymore Kelly).

Important: Just. Close. Your. Eyes.

Thank you, IMDB.com for most of the transcriptions:

Hailey [to Brigance]: America is a war and you are on the other side. How’s a black man ever going to get a fair trial with the enemy on the bench and in the jury box?. My life in white hands? You Jake, that’s how. You are my secret weapon because you are one of the bad guys. You don’t mean to be but you are. It’s how you was raised. N[*****], negro, black, African-American, no matter how you see me, you see me different, you see me like that jury sees me, you are them. Now throw out your points of law Jake. If you was on that jury, what would it take to convince you to set me free? That’s how you save my ass. That’s how you save us both.

***

Brigance: [in his summation, talking about Tonya Hailey]: … What is it in us that seeks the truth? Is it our minds or is it our hearts?

I set out to prove a black man could receive a fair trial in the south, that we are all equal in the eyes of the law. That’s not the truth, because the eyes of the law are human eyes — yours and mine — and until we can see each other as equals, justice is never going to be evenhanded. It will remain nothing more than a reflection of our own prejudices, so until that day we have a duty under God to seek the truth, not with our eyes and not with our minds where fear and hate turn commonality into prejudice, but with our hearts — where we don’t know better.

Now I wanna tell you a story …

I’m going to ask you all to close your eyes while I tell you the story. I want you to listen to me. I want you to listen to yourselves. Go ahead. Close your eyes, please.

This is a story about a little girl walking home from the grocery store one sunny afternoon. I want you to picture this little girl. Suddenly a truck races up. Two men jump out and grab her. They drag her into a nearby field and they tie her up and they rip her clothes from her body. Now they climb on. First one, then the other, raping her, shattering everything innocent and pure with a vicious thrust in a fog of drunken breath and sweat. And when they’re done, after they’ve killed her tiny womb, murdered any chance for her to have children, to have life beyond her own, they decide to use her for target practice. They start throwing full beer cans at her. They throw them so hard that it tears the flesh all the way to her bones. Then they urinate on her.

Now comes the hanging. They have a rope. They tie a noose. Imagine the noose going tight around her neck and with a sudden blinding jerk she’s pulled into the air and her feet and legs go kicking. They don’t find the ground. The hanging branch isn’t strong enough. It snaps and she falls back to the earth. So they pick her up, throw her in the back of the truck and drive out to Foggy Creek Bridge. Pitch her over the edge. And she drops some thirty feet down to the creek bottom below.

Can you see her? Her raped, beaten, broken body soaked in their urine, soaked in their semen, soaked in her blood, left to die. Can you see her? I want you to picture that little girl. Now imagine she’s white.
