Cop of the 2013 year attacks 60-year-old man who asked for help?

This same cop attacks a 60-year-old man at a hotel, after this same civilian actually called for police help.

Officer T. Michael Wilson arrived, he fly's totally off the handle, twice throwing the nonthreatening 60-year-old to the ground.

Or was it that idiot calling himself Rush Limbaugh that upset your stomach?

Why don't you just ask your husband to take one or two steps back?
I'm guessing that might release the pressure.

Are you sure you're guessing? You sound like a man of experience. Anyway, I'm not married power ranger.

“If you can convince the lowest white man that he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him someone to look down on and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”
Lyndon Johnson, 1960, remark to Bill Moyers, "What a Real President Was Like," Washington Post, 13 November 1988

----------

Replace the word "colored man" with "homosexual", "woman", "Muslim", "Hispanic", "Jew", etc. and you've pretty much wrapped up the entire Tea Party and Republican platform.

I'm still having a hard time believing that you wrote fiction at some point in your life.

Hell, you freak out if someone posts a comment with more than two-dozen words.

How could someone who hates reading a few paragraphs be interested in writing fiction?

Did you write haikus?

Yes. If you were a writer you would freak out too. You take the sentence "I went to work" and turn it into a 500 word long and very boring essay. Economy of words son. Try it. Please.

I can play that game, Stain Boi. This one's for Rolf Szabo, formerly of Kodak, who got fucked over because of some Communist "human rights" homofascism.

“If you can convince the lowest homosexual that he’s better than the heterosexual, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him someone to look down on and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”

Can you hear the echoes of the Stains constantly crying "bigot" and "homophobe"?

Ever read Hemmingway? Ernie didn't type words for words sake. Every single word was necessary. But just one more would be excessive.

You go on and on when you could have said it much better in a few short sentences.

I'll try to get him to keep his word count down to about 3 per sentence and remain as monosyllabic as possible.

Just for you!

Let me know if you need the assistance of pictures too.

I can't walk and my zipper is not in the back. Dumb joke anyway.

You walk into a bar. The bartender says "get the hell out of here kid".

Let me tell you what I know about writing... Basically, there is no wrong or right way to write; unless you're a journalist, a columnist, or a sky-writer. Whatever the market will bear... And even then, it's pretty much up to the author.

I don't write for your pleasure. Rather, I write for mine.

If you miss out on my brilliance, that's your problem.

That's where you're wrong. It's the writer's problem if the reader misses his brilliance. Read Vonnegut's rules for writing fiction-
