Is Access to a Toilet a ‘Basic Human Right’?

Two workers who claimed they were forced to urinate in a bucket have been awarded $332,000 after a jury found they were fired for complaining to Oregon regulators about the lack of an onsite toilet.

The Oregonian reports that Douglas Eki and Xerxes “Jason” Doctolero told the state Occupational Safety and Health Division that they used the bucket because they couldn’t get to a toilet fast enough.

They testified that their employer, Menzies Aviation, refused to provide them with a toilet and that using the restrooms of nearby businesses wasn’t a solution because they were not welcome. The men performed mechanical work at Portland International Airport.

The state agency cited the company in August 2010 for failing to provide restrooms. The men were fired later that month.

A company lawyer contended the men were fired because they kept using the bucket after being told not to.

Is Batman gay?

DC Comics plans to reintroduce a character as gay in a future issue, it has been revealed.

Co-publisher Dan DiDio previously said that the company would not change the sexual orientation of an existing superhero and would bring in a new one altogether.

But at Kapow Comic Convention in London on Sunday, he revealed that an existing character – who was previously assumed to be straight – will become ‘one of our most prominent gay characters’, according to comic blog

Senior VP Sales Bob Wayne said DiDio’s view ‘had evolved’, comparing the shift to Barack Obama’s recent endorsement of same-sex marriage.

DiDio did not specify which character would ‘come out’ or in which issue it would be featured.

But Courtney Simmons, DC Entertainment’s senior vice president of publicity, told ABC News that it would be soon.

‘One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June,’ Simmons told the network.

The Muslim Brotherhood Will Slit your Throat and not Bat an Eye

While it may sound like a contradiction in terms by American standards, it makes sense that a true liberal would likely rail against oppression in the name of religion — even if that self-proclaimed liberal is a Muslim, and the religion he is fighting is Islam. Yet for some reason, the majority of American leftists routinely criticize Judeo-Christianity while openly supporting radical Islamists (like the Muslim Brotherhood) that would as soon stone or behead the very minorities the left claims to stand for. To this end, leftwing political activist and broadcaster Tarek Fatah believes that condemning radical Islam should be a “nonpartisan” issue, and one in which people of good will around the world can find common ground.

The Pakistani-born Canadian joined Glenn Beck on Tuesday evening to discuss why Shariah law has no place in Islam, and to warn viewers about the dangers posed by the not-so-moderate Muslim Brotherhood. As a Muslim born in Karachi who viewed his share of carnage carried out in the name of Islam first hand, Fatah is stunned at how American leftists are handling themselves when it comes to supporting the enemies of goodwill.

Regulators to Review Morgan Stanley Facebook Allegations

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s chairman said on Tuesday that regulators plan to review allegations that Morgan Stanley shared negative news before Facebook’s initial public offering with institutional investors.

“The allegations, if true, are a matter of regulatory concern” to FINRA and SEC, Ketchum told Reuters.

Ketchum made the remarks to Reuters in response to allegations that Morgan Stanley [MS 13.31 0.12 (+0.91%) ], the lead underwriter on the deal, unexpectedly delivered some negative news to major clients in the run-up to Facebook’s [FB 31.00 -3.03 (-8.9%) ] $16 billion IPO: The bank’s consumer Internet analyst, Scott Devitt, was reducing his revenue forecasts for the company.

Massachusetts Secretary of Commonwealth William Galvin has issued a subpoena to Morgan Stanley over the discussions with investors on Facebook.

It is unusual for analysts at lead underwriters to make such changes so close to the IPO, sources said. It is unclear whether Morgan Stanley only told its top clients about the revised view or spread the word more broadly.

“The Securities Division has put out a subpoena to Morgan Stanley in connection with the analyst’s discussion with certain institutional investors about the revenue prospects for Facebook,” a spokesman for Galvin’s office said.

Morgan Stanley maintains that its handling of the Facebook IPO was in compliance with standard procedure.

“Morgan Stanley followed the same procedures for the Facebook offering that it follows for all IPOs. These procedures are in compliance with all applicable regulations,” the brokerage said in a statement to CNBC.

Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers Tied to the Anti-Nazi Group at the Center of Chicago Mob Attack?

The group that has claimed responsibility for a mob attack at a Chicago-area restaurant over the weekend is the same group that hosted former Weather Underground terrorists and Barack Obama associates Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers last year, according to fliers published on the organization’s web site.

That group, as The Blaze mentioned earlier this week, is Anti-Racist Action (ARA). According to its own website and a documentary on the group, ARA formed in the 1980s under the street name “The Baldies” in the Minneapolis-St.Paul area and as anti-racist skinheads to combat neo-Nazi groups that were gaining power.

On Saturday afternoon, a group of eighteen people wearing all black stormed Ashford House, a restaurant in Tinley Park, a community in the Chicago metro area. Ten people were injured in the attack and three were placed in the hospital.

Various news outlets have reported that the group targeted in the attack was associated with Stormfront, a website popular among white nationalists and white supremacists.

Discussion threads on that website suggest that the meeting at Ashford House was a meet-and-greet for forum members. The docket for their luncheon, which was organized under an organization calling itself the Illinois European Heritage Association, suggests that their goal was “economic networking.” The coordinator of the event, later identified as Beckie Williams, said the event was not racist, while material for the gathering was meant to promote “work for whites.”

One of the men hospitalized in the attack, who asked to remain anonymous, told The Blaze, “Our group is not a violent group. We do not condone violence at all.” The man, who received eight stitches after suffering a head wound and bruised left eye socket, said that the attackers terrorized the party. “They were armed with weapons from metal batons, hammers, nun chucks, wood batons, and various other items. They even used chairs and tables as weapons.”

Witnesses at Ashford House reported that the assailants were meeting in front of the restaurant prior to the attack and stormed in, singling out specific group members for attack. Some patrons and Ashford House employees were also injured.

As previously reported by The Blaze, five men have been arrested for their participation in the attack: three brothers – Jason Sutherlin, Dylan Sutherlin, and Cody Sutherlin, all hailing from Bloomington, Indiana – as well as two other men, Alex Stuck and James Tucker. All are being held on charges of mob attack, aggravated battery, and destruction of property and are being held on bonds of at least $150,000.

The Muslim Brotherhood Is Ideologically Required to Start Wars

Egyptian philosopher and political mind Murad Wahba appeared on Sada Al-Balad TV last month, where he made a plethora of statements about the dangers associated with the Muslim Brotherhood. For anyone who knows the radical group’s history, Wahba’s words may not be surprising, however they seem to corroborate some of the fears being felt about the future of Egypt and the Middle East.

According to the prominent thinker, Egypt is not on a sustainable path toward viable democracy. Furthermore, Wuhba stated his belief that there will inevitably be a conflict between the Egyptian military leaders and the Muslim Brotherhood. At hand, of course, is the differences through which these power structures view the purpose of combat.

“For the Egyptian military leadership, the notion of war pertains to national security: our army’s mission is to defend us against an attacking enemy, but it is not part of its mission to artificially initiate a war,” Wahba explained. “For the Muslim Brotherhood, war is something one initiates, in an effort to convert the region and the entire world to Islam. Therefore, the Muslim Brotherhood is ideologically required to start wars.”
