Ban the b.eaners and we'll go. I'm sick of going anywhere in South Florida and hearing 90% of the people speaking Spanish. According to statistics, only 20% of the population is Hispanic, which makes you wonder how many uncounted illegals there really are.

This fair is full of criminals. Wait till Black Thursday. FLPD has to staff over 100 officers and oficers from other agencies because all the Obama supporters come there to raise cane.

Why not consider spending your money at one of the smaller, community carnivals put on by the cities and/or churches?

I know there's a big one up at St. Andrew in Coral Springs in a few weeks. St. Malachy just had one, and I believe Mary Help of Christians up in Parkland has one next month.

I won't go back to the county fair anymore. Too crazy and expensive.

It's a family fair only if you're black. When it gets dark outside, it turns darker at the fair. No place for a white family at all. Hundreds of cops all over the place. Even then, I wouldn't feel safe.

I went today and there were only three tactical officers and ONE uniformed officer on the whole property. Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue had more bodies out there than the cops even with the critical incident winnebago.

Get a grip and stop talking trash.

FLPD will not be staffing more than 20 cops for THANKSGIVING. Yeah that national holiday thing where a lot of people are off from work.

Oh...I forgot, there were many more whites at the fair than anything else. No spanish was being spoken. And to top it off...the white folks were tired and depressed looking from the Bush economy.

Welcome to the NEW WORLD ORDER. That is where all the jobs have gone to foreigners half way around the globe and silly xenophobes are allowed to talk trash about fellow americans while the Robber Barons of our day are stealing everything as fast as they can.

Nice to see the uneducated, xenophobic inbreds are allowed to have a computer and an internet hook-up.

Shocking isn't it pastor? Two Ivy League degrees and President of Law Review too. Say it isn't so!

Hey pastor, book learnin' is back in vogue; including the Good Book as well as others.

The blacks love the fair because they can get all their victims concentrated in one place. It makes robbing easier.

Two things "pastor". The first thing you are wrong about is the new "black" administration. I have only seen one colored person being tapped for all of the cabinet positions that have been announced. Secondly, just because some half colored/ half white person gets elected president, that does not mean colored people are "running things". And lastly, the fair is full of scumbags. They had a bunch of cops working last Thanksgiving and had to order the night shift officers to stay late to help control the crowd. I'm sure these Officers appreciated missing another holiday with their family so they watch a bunch of thugs raise hell. If you really want to pray for something or someone, pray for all of the colored on colored crime to stop. Or pray that the junior Senator doesn't continue to keeps terrorists and felons as his close friends. Clinton and Bush had no effect on me as presidents and I'm sure Osama and/or Biden will either.

Think again myth buster...in addition to the Officers that voluntarily signed up they forced 60 officers to work the fair on Thanksgiving day. So rather than being at home with their families, they have to work this circus. I am neither xenophobic or inbred. Get the facts before you claim to know them.

AS FAR AS THE COPS GO, MOST EXPECT AND PREFER TO WORK HOLIDAYS. IN SOME CASES THEY CAN MAKE TRIPLE TIME (BY APPLYING UNUSED PTO TO THE HOLIDAY). PLEASE ALLOW THE MESSIAH TO RULE. DO NOT FEAR YOUR GREAT BLACK LEADER. OUR CONGREGATION HAS ALREADY SENT A PETITION FOR THE NEW BLACK NATIONAL ANTHEM. GET USED TO YOUR NEW BLACK LEADER AND THE POWERFUL BLACK SPIRTUAL LEADERS THAT WILL ADVISE HIM. PRAY ALL NIGHT TONIGHT AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHAT THE MESSIAH CAN BRING.

You are so full of it. Blacks will never be respected. You wear pantyhose on your heads, your pants are hanging below your butt, black communities are always in shambles. Look at Pompano, Lauderkill, basically anything east of the Turnpike is a complete dump. You don't see whites or Hispanics living like blacks do. Check out Weston, Parkland, and other white and Hispanic communities. We don't trash them up like you do. We don't have drug dealers on our corners, mattresses outside our houses, babies running around in just diapers, to name a few things. You need to clean yourselves up and start acting more civilized.

So, basically if folks are from the lower end of the socio-economic scale and don't know any better, they [blacks] are ALL that way.

I guess the white folks in Tennessee near my retirement home are all "black" underneath their white skin for all the backwardness I have seen from them.

Keep hitting the pipe. I would love to be at home with my family every holiday. If you really think that cops like working weekends, midnights and holidays you are, as stated above, smoking crack. I do give you credit for sarcasm in this post though. Please take the caps lock off because it doesn't make your post more important it just annoys everyone.
