how do you propose to redistrict inner city districts that vote 100% DemoKKKrat so that those votes can be spread out among rural districts that vote 55-45 Republican???......
what you really want is called "gerrymandering".... .
not to mention that you are a racist pig.....
Do you ever actually read things or do you just meander around making stupid remarks? I said gerrymandering. It's not the predominantly minority precincts they gerrymander. It's the ones where they can arrange it to come out 52%-48%. What the Republicans have been trying to do is keep minorities away from the polls by restricting their votes through everything from long lines to a poll tax. You know....like racist assholes used to do. After Kennedy integrated the schools and took down the "Colored" this, "Colored" that signs the racist assholes in the south began to vote Republican. It's not a coincidence that the whole southern United States is bright red on a political map.

here's what King had to say.

The Los Angeles Clippers may have staged a silent protest at their game over the weekend after owner Donald Sterling's racist comments leaked online, but Larry King had no problem speaking out about the situation!

Larry dined at Craig's in West Hollywood on Sunday night, and when asked about Sterling's remarks, the TV icon said, "Get him out of the league ... any way they can!"

Slain West Mahanoy man probably hit by deer antlers, coroner says
The West Mahanoy Township man found dead in his home Sunday evening probably was killed with trophy deer antlers and other objects, the Schuylkill County coroner said Tuesday.
David R. Halaburda, 50, of 256 Wylam St. was identified as the victim of the unusual slaying.
"I'm going to say we don't think it was just one object that was used," Coroner David Moylan said. "Deer antlers are being investigated by the state police. They are believed to be part of the objects used to cause the blunt-force trauma."

You rightwingers sure do come up with creative ways to kill people.

You speculating about the political background of a story sure blows this story out of water-eh Homer.

"Former Illinois State Rep. Keith Farnham was charged Monday with using both personal and state-owned computers to trade hundreds of images and videos depicting child pornography and engage in graphic online chats in which he allegedly bragged about sexually molesting a 6-year-old girl.

The federal criminal complaint alleged that Farnham, 66, a Democrat from Elgin, possessed two videos depicting child pornography on a computer that was seized from his state office in Elgin a week before his abrupt resignation in March. Authorities also linked a Yahoo! email account used by Farnham to a online trading forum in which he chatted with other users about his sexual preferences, according to the charges.

The old fart isn't selling that team, no way no how. He's sued the NBA in the past most likely he will sue them now, he is know as being very litigious. He'll claim he broke no laws. After a year or so this will end at the Supreme Court where Alito will write the winning argument in favor of Sterling and he'll win in a 5-4 decision by the rightwing activist judges. The next day Sterling will die of massive heart attack.

Less than 1/10th of 1% economic growth! Even after the stimulus, the recovery and all the jobs programs, there is still no joy in Mudville! And, the only reason there was less than 1/10th of 1% percent growth was the gov't spending to private companies for obamacare! Keep celebrating all the lies and failures of the left!

"New York Knicks executive and former star Larry Johnson reacted on Twitter to racist and misogynistic remarks made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling by calling for an all African-American basketball league."

It is not the first time the former player has focused on the mostly white ownership of NBA teams, the New York Post reports.

During the 1999 NBA Finals, Johnson - then a player for the Knicks - said,Weve got a lot of rebellious slaves on this [Knicks] team.

When asked to explain his comment, he responded,Ive got to explain that to you? We dont go with the mainstream.

More Democrat racists... Let's see how fast the Sterling story disappears now.
L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, whom commentators tried to tie to the Republican party immediately after his alleged racist statements became public, has in fact only given money to Democratic candidates, according to campaign-contribution records.
Let's look at some other issues.
The gold diggig girlfirend violated the law when she recorded the statement without Sterling's permission. No charges filed yet.
A peron has the right to say whatever they want. For clarification on this, read the First Amendment.
Now, do the bylaws of the NBA govern what a person is allowed to say in the privacy of their own home? No. Therefore, there can be no penalty imposed from information derived from an illegal recording.
Kareem Abdul Jabar has it exactly right. How about you people that ludicrously call yourselves "liberals" take a look at what he has to say about this.
First, not that is matters, but Sterling is a registered Republican. We have even been provided with a copy of Sterling's voting registration record courtesy of the official database of California voter registrations.

As far as his statements are concerned, I am one who believes the NBA has made a big mistake by banning him for something he said in a private conversation and was, under California law, recorded unlawfully as Sterling didn't give consent.

It should be obvious to anyone that, when he made those statements, Sterling was blindly jealous of his girlfriend's association with Magic Johnson. His friends had called him about her appearance with Magic. In those circumstances, people say terrible things they do not mean. Mr. Sterling should have been allowed to apologize, explain himself and move on. Blacks say terrible things about whites and whites say terrible things about blacks. It happens.

I agree with Laz Alonso:

Why are they making such a big deal about Donald Sterling? Laz tweeted.He was arguing with his girl who was clearly baiting him to say those things. In arguments of passion & despair people say horrible things they don't truly feel. Making racial comments when either roadraging or arguing with a lover does not count!!! Everybody acts holier than thou until you do the same. Dude was feeling insecure. End of story.

Harvard Poll Shows Millennials Have 'Historically Low' Levels Of Trust In Government

"new poll surveying young Americans' political attitudes released by Harvard University's Institute of Politics Tuesday found millennials have less trust in government than ever before.

Harvard's poll showed millennials, which the pollsters defined as peopled aged 18 to 29, have lost trust in a variety of different major public institutions including the President, the military, Congress, the Supreme Court, and the federal government as a whole. Of all the institutions tracked by the poll, the President and the military lost the most trust among young Americans with a seven point drop. Overall, the pollsters said the level of trust millennials have in "most American institutions tested in our survey" had dropped below even "last years historically low numbers."
