Lewis Black: New York City is better than Texas because ‘F*ck you, Texas’
Listen, Texas,” he said,“trying to steal jobs from Illinois and California is one thing, but you’re going to try to trash-talk about New York? Not on my watch.”
Vowing to “fight fire with fire,” Black rolled his own ad, in which he said in voice-over,“This is New York City, the city that never sleeps. People come here from all over the world, for the freedom to live as they choose, for the variety of cultures, but most of all, for the fact that it’s not Texas.”
“Fuck you, Texas!” New Yorkers gleefully shout at the video’s climax, in a multitude of languages.
“‘Don’t mess with Texas?’” Black mocked.“Don’t fuck with New York.”
Here's a clue for you:

Most people hate arrogant New York City loudmouths, including you transplanted Bocajews.

That commercial reinforces the negative stereotype of New Yorkers and is clearly intended for local consumption only.

Why are you so 'tupid? Is it on purpose or does it come naturally?
"Juror E54, who was one of four alternate jurors in the case, says he felt the injuries Zimmerman sustained during the altercation were the most convincing piece of evidence in the trial. He also said he believed it was Zimmerman who was screaming for help in a 911 call played during the trial, not Martin.
"Juror E54, also relied on the testimony from the witnesses who heard Zimmerman and Martin fighting the night of the shooting. He said the verdict was 'accurate.'"
Juror E54 is a black man.
How many times does this make that I've had to get you up to snuff?
You'd think you'd do some research first by now.
I just watched the Juror 54 interview on Hannity. Where'd you get the idea he was black? His hands look awfully white to me.

Do you seriously think that the CEO of a corporation or municipal agency just sits on his ass and assumes that his managers are doing a good job, without grilling them on a regular basis?
Yep. I don't think it, I know it. A good manager has confidence in the abilities of those he has placed as department heads and in their ability to manage their departments and budgets without his interference. Obviously, he meets with department heads on a regular basis but not to discuss the day to day operations or personnel matters. It's about budgets, projects and future vision. That is the way government works.

George Zimmerman won't be getting his gun back anytime soon after all. Good Move, Attorney General Eric Holder! "The Sanford Police Department froze its plan to return Zimmerman's gun Thursday after the FBI put a hold on evidence in the case, Sanford police spokesman Capt. James McAuliffe told the Los Angeles Times.
The FBI's request signals that the Justice Department is proceeding with its civil rights investigation into Zimmerman's killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
McAuliffe said the gun, a 9-millimeter semiautomatic, won't be returned until the department completes its investigation and had no further need for evidence in the case."
How about the state's attorney lying under oath to railroad Zimmerman into a court room? Don't you think that's a violation of Zimmerman's civil rights?
How about that radical left wingnut judge that tried to orchestrate a guilty verdict and abused Zimmerman's rights to the 5th Amendment. Don't you think that's a violation of Zimmerman's civil rights?

Holder has to do something to prove they haven't abandoned their ghetto base. It's all show.... move along. nothing to see here.

I went down to the local Republican Party office, asked them if I could join, told them I was pro-choice, believed women were equal(if not better) than men, said I did not believe in God and thought we should continue to feed the poor.

They told me to get the hell out.

You keep hearing about it because we're being led to believe it's "hunting season" on black men by whites which is a complete and total lie.
Statistics provided by the FBI show that 91% of all black homicides are committed by black offenders.
We're just tired of being lied to. Can't wait until you and a whole lot of others are too.

Orwell knew…. Hatred is a control mechanism.
The more repressed a society the more hateful all within must be. In order for oligarchical collectivism to take hold – in order for the few to benefit over the many without recognition or revolution – hatred must be infused. Hatred leads to the “us and them” mentality which drives clever reasoning to convince people to kill and be killed in the name of an institutional godhead. The more repressive and evil an institution, the more hatred they will drive and instill.
Don't be their 'useful idiots'.
And how was George Zimmerman "packaged" ? He was never portrayed as the "creepy ass cracker" that eyewitnesses saw him as he really was.

You must mean NBC. The liberal media's racism.
It's okay. I know how desperately you want to believe a lie.
You never answered the question. Why does Carol so firmly believe all these "facts" that are unknowable?

Is it the difference in Zimmerman's and Martin's height? Do you automatically assume the taller party is guilty?

No, no, misunderstood.
According to Bob Woodward who spent days and days following the president and his staff around writing his book, he wrote the PRESIDENT wants a 15-minute briefing every day.
And doesn't want to hear or read anything else.
Even you, a loyal liberal, must think that's kind of odd. Just 15 minutes of his time is all this president is willing to spend to become informed about all that's going on here and abroad?
The thing is he doesn't want to know because Valerie Jarrett tells him everything he needs to know.
So he can play and pretend to be a president again.
Ah! You want things to be done the way bushie boy did it?

So... 9/11 and invasion of sovereign nations for no reason at all are what a 'good' president does?

Unless I was in Florida & I ran over a black kid. Then I too could get the "Oh Well, another dead black kid"treatment.
In your state, unless you were arrested and charged, the only testing would be for alcohol, which you could also decline if you chose to do so.

The question is, would you be arrested immediately and thrown in jail pending investigation?

Au contraire! We would welcome you with open arms!

As soon as the majority of blacks and Hispanics figure out it's costing them way too much to stay under the Democrats' tent, there'll be more than enough room in the Republicans' and, if not, we'll make it bigger.

So come on over to the side of sanity, Homer. We will congratulate you for becoming an independent thinker and helping to keep us all from drowning in the democrats River of Despair.

You'll feel so much better...and I might even cry.
