"Man punched in the face in Union Square hate attack dies at Bellevue Hospital
Authorities say 62-year-old Jeffrey Babbitt (l.) has died less than a week after he was assaulted by a man who threatened to 'punch the first white man' he saw.
A white man who was punched in the face in Union Square by a black man who was spewing anti-white sentiment died early Monday at Bellevue Hospital, a police source said.
Jeffrey Babbitt, 62, fell into a coma after he was randomly attacked Wednesday afternoon by a man who was yelling,“I’m going to punch the first white man I see!”
Lashawn Marten, 31, was arrested on charges of misdemeanor assault in the attack. The unprovoked punch knocked Babbitt backward, and he hit his head on the ground.
The attack took place in Union Square Park.
Babbitt lived in Brooklyn and was caregiver to his mother, who has Alzheimer’s disease, neighbors said.
After Marten assaulted Babbitt, he attacked two men who tried to help the stricken man, and then challenged two responding cops, officials said.
Marten is being held on $1 million bail. Charges against him will likely be upgraded."
"...a man who threatened to 'punch the first white man' he saw."

I doubt the victim was the first white man he saw. I think it was probably the first old, feeble, defenseless white man he saw.

How about the people help the economy.
If you want health insurance, do these things:
1) Don't drop out of school.
2) Study while you're in school.
3) Don't have children before you're married.
4) Get a job, and show up for work on time every day.
5) Do what you're paid to do while you're at work.
If you do the above, you will never be poor and you will have health insurance equal to everyone else who does the above things.
One problem is, ObamaKare is just another Marxist program that will make the people who make the economy work pay for everyone who doesn't do anything for the economy to have the same things the people who make the economy work have. That will increase demand without increasing supply. Show me any economist that says the cost will go down under this economic condition. ObamaKare will increase the cost of healthcare by natural economic law.
Another problem is, ObamaKare requires the government to manage health care. Do you really need an explanation of why that will be disastrous?
If we get rid of ObamaKare, we may actually have a chance to survive, if we also get rid of other Marxist programs and wasteful spending. Even if ObamaKare is repealed, the Democrats' version of government requires the government borrow 1.3 trillion dollars every year just for its day-to-day existence. That increases the debt 8 percent ever year while the actual economy is stagnant. An idiot can tell you that government will collapse.
So, since the Democrats will certainly collapse the government, what is the Democrats' plan for what government will replace the government they collapse?
"OMG OMG OMG buying insurance from PRIVATE insurance companies to get care from PRIVATE doctors & PRIVATE hospitals" OMG OMG OMG"

We wouldn't have to borrow 1.3 trillion if Bush had not crashed the economy& we didn't have to pay for two quagmire wars.

Pretty sure Russia hasn't forgotten the Afghanis using the CIA's ground-to-air missiles in Afghanistan blowing their helicopters out of the sky or the end of the Cold War brought on with our help leading to the economic collapse of the USSR.

But, hey, maybe Putin just wants to secure his pal's, Assad's, chemical weapons just to be seen as Obama's savior with no ulterior motive.

For those new to the board here, these statements have been discussed extensively here. Please feel free to include any comment you feel has not been made previously. It would help emensely if you can identify anyone at all that ever met Obama at Columbia, dumbass.
Obama is a candidate for the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on human society in the history of civilization.
Obama's biological father is Frank Marshal Davis.
Obama is a college dropout from Occidental College.
Obama never attended classes at Columbia.
Someone who worked and made all the sacrifices to be admitted to Harvard was denied so a college dropout with connections at the highest level of the Communist Party USA could get another fraudulent entry in their fraudulent resume.
Obama is a pathological liar.
Obama was indoctrinated in hatred of the United States his entire life. Any enemy of the United States is a friend to Obama.
Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama is helping Al Qaeda with their invasion of Syria and the war they started there to take over the country and get the chemical weapons there, and put the Muslim Brotherhood in as the ruling caliphate after they were tossed out of the government in Egypt.
Obama has no respect for the Constitution. It is likely Obama has never even read the Constitution in his entire life.
Find the racial slur.

When bushie boy wanted to invade iraq, Russia Germany and France said no.
But cons we're all hells-bells against them.
But by golly, they were right!
You are obviously ignorant of the fact that Russia, Germany and France were the same countries being paid by Saddam Hussien from the money he stole from the UN's oil-for-food scam to rebuild his infrastructure for war. And, those were the exact same countries giving the US intelligence about Saddam Hussien's WMD programs that kept the UN santions active so the UN's oil-for-food scam could continue and they could continue to get paid billions to rebuild Saddam Hussien's infrastructure for war.
Bush stopped that bullshit, didn't he?
Mission accomplished.

If you really want to contribute to the discussion, tell us why we didn't have any intelligence capabilities at that time and had to rely on intelligence from other countries.(I've given you that answer already, as well as the search to study it competely. Tell us what you learned, boy.)

The solution is to have the chemical weapons taken to Russia.
The UN is incompetent.
Letting Obama anywhere near them will be like giving them directly to Al Qaeda.
If I were Putin, I'd just go in there and move the chemical weapons to Russia without asking anyone's approval. Problem solved.
See...this is my dilemma with your solution. If you agree Assad has killed thousands of his own people and perhaps even hundreds using chemical weapons (although no one seems to have direct proof of that yet) and agree Putin is a devotee of Stalin and supplies and supports Assad and, therefore, responsible for the killing of thousands of people, why in the world should Putin be entrusted to do the right thing with those chemical weapons?

Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are destroying the USA all by themselves.
They need no help from anyone - nor do they want it.
President Bush seems patriotic.

Former President George W. Bush said Friday that his successor has a “tough choice to make” on U.S. intervention in Syria, as American allies and Congress appear to be balking at the idea of a strike on Syrian military assets.

“The president’s got a tough choice to make,” he said during an appearance on Fox News Channel as a part of a golf fundraiser for veterans.“And if he decides to use our military he’ll have the greatest military ever backing him up.”

The former president – who launched a military intervention in Iraq in 2003 based on the belief that that country’s leader, Saddam Hussein, was harboring stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction – said that he did not want to get “roped in” to commenting on the ongoing debate over whether a strike in Syria would be justified based on its regime’s apparent use of chemical weapons.

But, he added, he regarded Syrian president Bashar al Assad with suspicion during his presidency.

“I was not a fan of Mr. Assad,” he said.“He’s an ally of Iran and he’s made mischief.”

Asked about his thoughts on the international community’s apparent reluctance to sign off on military intervention, Bush – who assembled a “coalition of the willing” of more than two dozen countries before his invasion of Iraq – declined to comment.

“The president has to make a tough call,” he repeated.“I know that you’re trying to subtly rope me in to the issues of the day. I refuse to be roped in.“

There is no evidence that Assad used chemical weapons, there is evidence however that al Qaeda rebels used it (who are being armed and trained by the us)

<quoted text> Agree!! Only so much you can do. As long as there has been NASCAR and rules people have tried to find ways around them. I think they went a long way towards, not solving the problem, but letting the teams know they are watching and it won't be tolerated. The only other solution is to get rid of the multi-team deal and only have single teams. Not getting caught cheating is a part of NASCAR. Always has. Always will.
Teams will always push the rules. If there isn't a rule against it, you do it, if it will bring you an advantage.
