Yep that damn Rodney King got beat up by a bunch of tough guys cops who got away with it & caused the riot & its Rodney King's fault/
Not the cops who beat him.
Not the trial that called them not guilty.
If only Rodney King hadn't asked to be beat up.
never mind that he was on acid driving a car leaving a robbery and fighting the police that were doing what they had to to subdue the thug. they should have shot him then and kings drug sales robberies and the shooting of a man he was robing would have never happened. but hey the blacks involved in the riots all got new tv's and stuff as they burnt down their own neighborhood and robed the bushiness in response to being mad at a the white guys.

Let's hope they're at least not 100% accurate.
Well, this is how he thought 2012 would look:

By 2012, the "American Empire" is collapsing. In the U.S., basic staple goods like quality food and water are too expensive for most people to afford,(T.J. Summer 08, pg. 1) and "food riots" happen across the country (T.J. Summer 09, pg.1). Major American cities look like disaster zones, and mass homelessness exists across the country. Crime is rampant, with much of it being directed at the rich.(T.J. Summer 08, pg. 1) Kidnappings and ransomings of rich people are on the rise. Average people fed up with big government, high taxes and out-of-control spending join tax revolts.(T.J. Summer 09, pg. 1) The world is also experiencing major environmental problems and "the blackest of plagues." The global financial system has also "melted down" and the situation is very bad outside the U.S.(T.J. Summer 08, pg. 1) The advanced industrial economies collapse first, and their sagging consumer spending drags down the export-based economies of emerging economies next.(T.J. Summer 09, pg. 2)

Kind of backwards over there, huh?

The increased taxes and liberal entitlements caught up with them. Believe it was called social democracy.

They voted for the European version of the "conservative" approach - more taxation, decreased wages and slashing the budget - to stay in the euro.

Maybe if they had gotten their ducks in a row a long time ago...i.e. slashing the budget first, their taxes could have been lower without a decrease in wages. But they liked their entitlements without having to make the sacrifices for far too long.

Sound familiar?

Jesse Jackson got out of the shower and was drying off when he looked in the mirror and noticed he was white from
the neck up to the top of his head. In sheer panic and fearing he was turning white and might have to start working for
a living, he called his doctor and told him of his problem.
The doctor advised him to come to his office immediately. After an examination, the doctor mixed a concoction of
brown liquid, gave it to Jesse and told him to drink it all.
Jesse did, and replied, "That tasted like bull sh**!"
The doctor replied, "It was, Jesse. You were a quart low."

Your speaking of "roof top Clown" just reminded me that *I* never even 'tried out' for THAT part... I'm wondering if you ever told our 'bro' how HE almost got the Academy Award' for THAT role... Remember whut ya told me how he came home after a late night shift at the factory and had left hid door key at work and how he went up on the roof top to swing down into the bedroom of his and his old ladys apartment?

You should tell him that story about how his old lady told you all about that night... Betting he might think that as really funny, huh?

NOPE, never did any "roof top clown act' myself..., never did...

So you are advocating war because of environment issues in Iraq but ignore the environment here in the US?
Instead of throwing out "straw men"....

Why don't you address the ISSUE of the post, the inability/unwillingness of the United Nations to prevent the gassing of the Kurds, the destruction of the marshes and the decimation of the population that once lived there, the genocide in Rwanda, the genocide in Darfur, the millions suffering in detention camps in North Korea, the thousands who are dying in Syria?

Tell us YOUR suggestions for making the UN more effective in addressing and preventing such atrocities WITHOUT resorting to war.

Or do you not give a damn about them?

I understand that he is on vacation but I could have sworn that I saw him posting here just a week or about 10 days ago...
Any idea as to when he will return?
Grey Ghost is still incarcerated. Look for him to be on parole as soon as your term is up.

Let's hope he just wasn't off by a year or two.

He pretty much had Obama's outcome nailed.

By 2012, Obama is viewed by most as a stale president who sold himself as a fresh, visionary candidate in 2008 and instead proved to be a servant of the big corporations and the military-industrial complex like his predecessors.(T.J. Summer 09, pg. 5) His economic policies only delayed disaster and in fact have made the situation worse: Expansionary monetary policy and the various government bailouts and stimulus programs create a "Bailout Bubble" that invariably bursts in a cataclysm for the U.S. and world economy.(T.J. Summer 09, pg. 11) Obama blames other factors for this and might have even tried to start a war by 2012 to distract attention from the domestic misery.(T.J. Summer 09, pg. 12) Obama's foreign policy has also failed to accomplish anything significant on the world stage, and Pakistan is a mess and the Afghan war continues to drag on without hope of conclusion.(T.J. Summer 09, pg. 12)
