Woman shamed for 'inappropriate dress' at wedding reception fights back



Liz Krueger  When a trim and fit Liz Krueger slipped on a form-fitting body-con dress to wear to a late June wedding reception in Minneapolis, she needed to give herself a little pep talk first.

"The dress is made of a really thick, soft material and it's not transparent," Krueger, 31, told TODAY. She had been invited to the post-nuptial festivities — not the wedding itself — by her former college roommate and good friend.
Her visiting friend had even previewed four photos of Krueger's potential reception attire and selected the bare-shouldered, tan-and-peach option as one of two semifinalists.

A Primer: USAID & US Hegemony

A nation is its institutions. If those institutions are overrun and no longer exist, so too does the nation itself cease to exist. Institutions range from the offices of government, to education, to agricultural and economic development, to the management of natural resources, national infrastructure including energy and transportation, and security. These are the things we think about when we think about the concept of a modern nation-state.


Contrary to popular belief, the invasion and occupation of any particular nation is not a mere exercise of military might. It also, by necessity, involves the destruction or overrunning and eventual replacement of all the above mentioned institutions.

"So as tough, as hard, as depressing as the loss of life was this week, we've got a foundation to build on," Obama said.

"You're not seeing riots and you're not seeing police going after people who are protesting peacefully," he said. "You've seen almost uniformly peaceful protests and you've seen, uniformly, police handling those protests with professionalism." Obama said U.S. history was not repeating itself, and rejected the notion that a 1960s-style mindset had returned. "I am going to keep on talking about the fact that we cannot eliminate all racial tension in our country overnight," he said. "We are not going to be able to identify, ahead of time, and eliminate every madman or troubled individual who might want to do harm against innocent people. But we can make it harder for them to do so."
