<quoted text> Listen, you Bettie Lou, Galt, DB, & whoever has a problem with a man calling a female "babygirl" are just old & stuck in the past. Anyone from my era knows it's not said with derogatory intent. What kills me is you take just the word babygirl from what I said. laid out the entire scenario. My cousin from down there didn't say,"yo, don't call her babygirl." He told me to chill because they don't play that down here meaning, " chill boy, they don't play black dudes talking to white girls in public like that." You can't change the meaning of what someone said in a story I told to fit your theory. That is completely stupid!
It's only because you're used to that culture coming from the urban areas in the northern blue states.

Anywhere else in the country, calling a woman you don't know "babygirl" is both presumptive and inappropriate. Trust me on that.

You don't show your underwear by wearing your pants below your butt, do you? Please tell me you don't.

Fine. He was a single father. Fine. He had never worked at any other job. Fine. He wanted a 9-5 job as a store manager. He wanted 50,000 a year. He wanted paid health care for himself, his son and his girlfriend... and he wanted extra time off every month to spend with his son.
Fine, thank you very much...NEXT!
Aw, come on, Kvetchy, you really think anyone believes your anecdotal evidence of anything, let alone conducting interviews at a jobs fair in Chicago? You're still receiving chiropractic treatment for a closed head trauma, living in Costa Rica, and collecting disability from claim on a Chicago trade union. LMAO

A terrorist like Kathy Boudin, who should have been executed for her role in a bank robbery that left three people dead, can never pay her debt to society.

Yeah, Faux News almost monopolized a place on Basic Cable really early on. Of course, the average age of their viewer is 66, so I'm not sure if the "future" is looking all that bright for them.

Homer probably thinks Charles Manson has paid his debt to society and deserves parole. Or Sirhan Sirhan. Kathy Boudin is in the same class.

The Surge of the NBA's International Viewership and Popularity

Nearly six months after the NBA lockout ended, NBA fans across the world and the league’s executives have much to celebrate. Tonight the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat will face off for Game 2 of the 2012 NBA Finals. Although the 2012 NBA season was shortened as a result of the lockout, fans have not turned their back on the league. In fact, fans in 215 countries from Iceland to Madagascar and Afghanistan to Sri Lanka, will watch as The Finals are streamed in 47 different languages. Additionally, the NBA expects that 278 million fans will follow The Finals through social media networks.

The large surge in international viewership of The Finals is driven in part by the vast number of networks and online outlets that are televising the event. This year, 90 international television, radio and online outlets will air The Finals. Notably, this season, fourteen international networks are airing The Finals for the first time. These networks are located in: Cameroon, Georgia, Ghana, Greece, Mexico, Mongolia, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa and Turkey. The growth of international interest in the NBA is further demonstrated by the amount of international media that will converge upon Oklahoma City and Miami to cover The Finals. 1,800 media members total have been credentialed to cover The Finals. 12.6 percent of all media covering The Finals are international media members, as 227 media members representing 34 countries other than the United States are credentialed to cover The Finals.

Social media networks have also increased the NBA’s worldwide fan base. According to the NBA, the league has built one of the largest social communities in the world, with more than 278 million likes and followers. The official NBA, team and player pages combined across Twitter and Facebook have accumulated more than 226 million likes and followers. In China, the NBA is the number-one sports league across social media with 52 million fans on the league’s official accounts. The NBA has enjoyed over 883 million videos viewed on YouTube since 2005. Much of the NBA’s social media success is driven by international fans, as nearly 50 percent of the league’s followers on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are international.

I hadn't realized the NBA was so popular.

Bill Ayers never shot a cop or blew anyone up.
You are either a liar or a dumf*ck.
It is far past your time to grow up, boy. Hurry, before it's too late.

This is the Magic Negro's pal:

http://voices.yahoo.com/who-bill-ayers-210214...

"In the 2003 DVD production of The Weather Underground, Bill Ayers admits, "Whenever we put a bomb in a public space, we had figured out all kinds of ways to put checks and balances on the thing and also to get people away from it, and we were remarkably successful." Still there were injuries to people as well as destruction to property.

In his book, Fugitive Days: A Memoir, Ayers details his experience of planting bombs and living on the run from the FBI. He shows how the pacifism of his youth turned into more militant behavior."

Wiki - Bill Ayers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Ayers

"Ayers had previously been a roommate of Terry Robbins, a fellow militant who was killed in 1970 along with Ayers' girlfriend Oughton and one other member in the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion, while constructing anti-personnel bombs intended for a non-commissioned officer dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

Two major decisions came out of the "War Council." The first was to immediately begin a violent, armed struggle (e.g., bombings and armed robberies) against the state without attempting to organize or mobilize a broad swath of the public. The second was to create underground collectives in major cities throughout the country."

http://sayanythingblog.com/entry/a_timeline_o...

"October 20, 1981 – Brinks robbery in which several members of the Weather Underground stole over $1 million from a Brinks armored car near Nyack, New York. The robbers murdered 2 police officers and 1 Brinks guard. Several others were wounded.
1981 “Guilty as hell*. Free as a bird. America is a great country,” Ayers said when interviewed by David Horowitz."

How do you pay a society back for killing someone?

You have a table or something you check?
