The guy who wrestled a shark to shore in Massachusetts with his bare hands? He was from Florida. The amnesia victim who woke up in California speaking only Swedish? His driver's license said he was from Florida. Major League Baseball scandal in Wisconsin? Yep, there’s a major Florida connection.<

So true.

Florida is home to some weird stuff. Take this for example...

Where was the outrage? Where was Al Sharpton? Where was Jesse Jackson?

Strange.

It's really pissing me off. These racist blacks call it deflection to talk about this stuff. Like, let's not take our eyes off that "crazy cracker". The media ignores it, racists Sharpton, Jackson, and Eric Holder ignore it. WTF? We remain silent and watch it play out. The media is the real culprit here. They're playing to a third grade education and getting away with it.

Y'know the part of the internet I really love? I can see as much or as little as I want...if I look hard enough, it's all there.

Our lazy society has decayed from reading news to hearing news to watching news to the point where it has to be spoon fed to the majority of people. It's only the sensational story that stands out and causes people to notice anymore. This poor kid, shot by another kid who looks just like him (yeah, if our President had a son, he'd look like the kid who paralyzed this guy) withers away and dies without anyone demanding justice, with no one advocating an end to the senseless violence, just letting it slip between the cracks because it's so normal and every-day an occurrence. Pathetic.

Do you want to start a pool? They set a 9-month timeline for negotiations to reach an agreement on final-status issues.

I'm guessing it won't take that much time.

They have to have Hamas on board. With Morsi in deep dog doodoo, that doesn't help them much as far as acting like the aggrieved. They will resort to violence because that's all they know and will de-rail anything that doesn't suit their agenda. Your pool is an interesting game. Too many variables. Soos as it looks like a settlement is within reach, the rockets will start up. If your early guess is based on Israel having to kill a few more thousand terrorists, including the ones getting released, I'm in.

Truly?

I'm shocked they made it through the first meeting.

In international terms, Hamas seems to have embraced their role as have-nots. First, they can't get anything out of Israel. Then, they break up their Palestinian crime family and divide the territory only to get the shit end of the stick once again. Now, their Muslim Brotherhood patrons are on the outs in Egypt, due in part to their ties to Hamas. Gotta love the irony in that.

I love irony. The Brotherhood are liars and murderers. Hamas are family their members.

Fresh harvest from the Knesset, just a few hours ago..

https://www.youtube.com/watch...

Most likely that in a few hours this episode of our democracy will be translated into 120 languages... however I will summarize it for you (nutjobs, feel free to help)

This is happening at the Knesset

The Arab-Israeli Member of the Knesset Mr. Jamal Zahalka from the Balad Party(#) says...

- We [the Palestinian Arabs-Israeli] were here before "you" [the Jews] and we will be here after "you"..

When he is finished addressing the Knesset, Prime Minister Natanyahu asks to answer to Mr. Jamal Zahalka

- Members of the Knesset, I didn't mean to address my self to the Knesset today, however I'd like to answer to Member of the Knesset Mr. Jamal Zahalka. You said you were here before us ...*that is not true*... and you also said you will be here after us.....*well, that is not going to happen*.
----------

(#) For those of you that do not know the Balad Party..

""Balad is a [Arab-Israeli] political party, whose stated purpose is the 'struggle to transform the state of Israel into a democracy for all its citizens, irrespective of national or ethnic identity.' It opposes the idea of Israel as a solely Jewish state, and supports its recasting as a binational state.

The party supports creation of two states based on pre-1967 borders, with the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem to constitute a Palestinian state[8] and the implementation of UN Resolution 194 regarding the right of return to Palestinian refugees.

Balad describes itself as a 'democratic progressive national party for the Palestinian citizens of Israel.'......""

I thought you would like me to 'shaaaare'.

Why knock on the door to your own home? See what happens when you go travelling?

I don't know who came up with the idea that sharing democracy with Arabs was a good idea but he/she is an idiot. There is an ulterior motive behind every word and action that should be the elephant in the room but somehow gets ignored. They don't want democracy, they'll just tolerate and use it to get what they really want...your destruction. After that, signs at the border will read "Welcome to Sharia World". How come everyone ignores this in their quest for "Final Status" solutions?

Nobody says it better.

A moment of silence for the fallen soldiers this scumbag is helping. Or, should I say his Boss?

Couple this with trying to sandbag Israel into a fake peace agreement. Where the fcuk are we heading?

We don't need to strike Taliban targets anymore, we're out of Afghanistan soon and the Taliban will be back in charge soon after. I wouldn't be shocked if Karzai ended up running a Palao restaurant in NJ. Meanwhile, the Pakistanis themselves are in the fight but there are legit reasons not to trust them. We're letting the budget dictate where we fight Al-Qaeda from now on and the pickings are lush elsewhere. Think YEMEN!
