It's snowing at Bear Mountain where Dorner is said to be hiding!
Too bad he's black, they'll think he's a black bear, sticking out like a sore thumb. He's a goner soon, unless he brought a kkk hoodie!
I pity any large black men living out that way.

I still haven't learned what the cat has been doing to make ends meet since being fired back in 2008.

I'm not a fan of the cops; no one has proposed everyone be unarmed; just get rid of assault weapons and do background checks.
A large percentage of Americans agree on this.
Lots of folks in Southern California are happy that they are armed with Dorner on the loose, not to mention that unrelated 9-1-1 calls may go unanswered.

joke of the day....

Dick Morris Says He Wants To Moderate The GOP

Fresh off his departure from Fox News, Dick Morris said in an interview published Friday that his next mission will be to help the Republican Party rediscover the ideological center.

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/d...

As the National Review noted, such an effort would mark a dramatic shift in tone for Morris, who's co-authored a number of books in recent years that catered to the far-right fringe.

Someone is trying to imitate Florida. Many have tried. None succeed. Imitation is the highest form of flattery. LOL...I'm now looking for friends with the same mental disorder as me...priceless!

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., called the White House’s legal footing on a policy allowing drone strikes on American civilians “solid” in an interview with Andrea Mitchell Wednesday. Rogers, the House Intelligence Committee Chair, countered a frequent criticism of the Obama administration’s drone powers, attesting that “there is oversight.”

Now you know why the so called Liberals are turning on Obama which has been his problem all along with that New Left base that Bill Clinton & the other represent besides it was Bill Clinton that spoke against Obama saying he wasnt doing enough on Gun Control too.

Just heard his praise of obama and clinton is being scrubed.
who would scrub this?

You disrespect the office of the POTUS/Presidency and Commander in Chief. You call him Kenyan, mongroid, halfrican, muslim, and FBHO when in essence you are to address him as simply, President. The same as you did to President George W. Bush and all those in the highest ranking position of our land before him. Just as I always have. You question his birth certificate, his educational and professional accomplishments, and his judeo-christian beliefs. You make disparaging remarks about his dead parents. You never questioned the fact that his former opponent, the honorable Senator John McCain, was not born in the CONUS or that Bush had a C average in his undergrad. Electoral Candidates children (Romney) state they want to punch the president in the face during debates with no formal repercussions. No one even questioned the fact that the son just made a criminal threat toward the President. You call his wife a Wookie. Off the record, I love your new bangs, Mrs. Obama. A woman whose professional and educational accomplishments are second to none when compared to recent First wives. You call his supporters, whether black, brown, yellow, or white, leeches, FSA, welfare recipients, and ni$&er lovers. You say this openly without any discretion. Before you start with your argument that you believe I would vote for Obama because he has the same skin color as me, fk you. I didn't vote in this last election as my choice of candidate, John Huntsman, didn't win the primary candidacy for his party. Mr. President, I haven't agreed with all of your decisions but of course I haven't agreed with all of your predecessors decisions. I think you've done a hell of a job with what you have been dealt and how you have managed it. I shed a tear the night you were initially elected President in 2008. I never thought that day would occur. A black man elected president in the U.S. in my lifetime. I cracked a smiled when you were re-elected in 2012 because I really didn't think you were going to pull that one off. Romney, stop being a sore loser. You could've exited graciously and still contributed significantly to public service, not now. Mr. President, get back to work. Many want to see you fail as they have stated so many times previously. Unfortunately, if you fail, the U.S. fails but your opponents do not concern themselves about the big picture. Do not forget your commitment to transparency in your administration. Sometimes I believe your administration forgets that. America, you will realize today and tomorrow that this world is made up of all human beings who have the same general needs and wants in life for themselves, their kin, community, and state. That is the freedom to LIVE and LOVE. They may eat different foods, enjoy different music, have different dialects, or speak a second language, but in essence are no different from you and I. This is America. We are not a perfect sovereign country as we have our own flaws but we are the closest that will ever exist.

and.....

The honorable President George H.W. Bush, they never give you enough credit for your successful Presidency. You were always one of my favorite Presidents (2nd favorite). I hope your health improves greatly. You are the epitome of an American and service to country.

I have no doubt that some enterprising criminals are taking that into account; like bank robbers.
The cops here can never seem to catch them. They spend their time shaking down drug dealers and stealing their stash and cash.

Black pride in Obama shouldn’t silence dissent on drone policy:our community’s near solidarity in support of the president is probably only exceeded by our collective disdain for injustice; which is why the news of the Obama administration’s drone policy made me stop and think.

Through a Department of Justice memo, first obtained by NBC News, we learned that the Obama administration has determined it has the authority to kill a U.S. citizen on foreign soil using drones if the target is deemed to be a senior operational leader of Al Qaeda, and if it has been determined that they both pose “imminent threats” to the United States and that capturing the individual would not be feasible.

What’s troubling for some is that this policy of unilateral action leaves too much room for potential abuse. The thought that our government could kill Americans and ignore their constitutional right to a free and fair trial — all because some unnamed government official, who might divulge little or no reason for their suspicion, deems them an “imminent threat”– is disturbing to civil libertarians. It’s hard not to imagine the level of outrage and protest from Democrats and liberals if such a memo had been released under the Bush administration. Conservatives have a fair point when they say that George W. Bush faced far more scrutiny from liberals over his expansion of executive power.

To see so many African-Americans sit silently through such a revelation is astonishing. This unwavering support of this administration’s foreign and security policies requires that we ignore our historic skepticism of government and our general fear that it might misuse its power. The stories of J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI wiretapping civil rights leaders and covert operations to infiltrate civil rights organizations are fresh within the African-American psyche, as are Tuskegee experiments and government-ordered sterilizations. Take a trip to Harlem and ask black folks who was responsible for the death of Martin Luther King or Malcolm X and you will hear people make a passionate argument for their belief that the U.S. government played a role.Dr. King once said that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Maybe we should have the same courage to question our government’s policies abroad today as we did when we questioned its domestic policies decades ago.

Black History Month: Remembering African-American women who have served,U.S. Navy Vice Admiral Michelle Janine Howard used military might to wrestle with forces of darkness. The first black woman to command a Navy combat ship, Howard made headlines when her vessel tangled with Somali pirates in the process of rescuing the captain of a merchant ship from captivity.

In addition, it is estimated that roughly 40 percent of the women who served in Operation Desert Storm were black. Forty percent. Women such as this represent the important legacy of African-American women who have persistently fought to uphold American ideals, even when America did not always support them.

SO PEOPLE LIKE NANOANOMLY WHO THINKS ALL BLACK PEOPLE USE GUILT ON COMMON WHITES WE DONT NEED YOU AND YOUR GUILT FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS YOU ARE IGNORANT NANOAMALY

You guys seem to like this guy, so here you go

"Scarborough noted that Obama was so “judgmental,”“self-righteous,” and “damning” when he suggested Bush didn’t respect the constitution or checks and balances. Yet what he’s doing now is “even more chilling.”Noting she and her family were very critical of Bush, Mika Brzezinski asserted that what Obama is doing is “completely in the same category.” Liberals, Scarborough added, were angry when Obama suggested he wouldn’t push to have Bush tried for war crimes.“What standard will Barack Obama be held to four or eight years from now after the pictures of the little children who were killed by his drone attacks are placed before the jury in the Hague?” he asked.“And again, the self-righteousness, the hypocrisy of the left to go suddenly silent when we’re now talking about targeting and killing Americans without any due process, without any evidence. There’s a double standard here.”“I want everybody that said what they said about George W. Bush…I want those people to apologize to George W. Bush,” Scarborough asserted."
