So Hillary Clinton is running for president. Never saw that coming. She's not going to win, anyway. I know 3 NYers who voted for her as senator, but say they don't want her as president. Chuckle if you care to, but three real people is more than most political reporters talk to in a year.
It's amazing that she gets any votes given that her voice and speech patterns would mark her as an outcast in the real world. I guess if you believe that one should keep their enemies closer than their friends, NYers did the right thing by electing her senator twice. Keep her busy for a few years where you can see her. Let her win a few hands at pinochle, and then drop her in the river when the order is given.
America isn't ready for a hot female president much less a shrill old hump who makes Margeret Thatcher look like the chick who does the Toyota Mall of Georgia ads.
There will be a time for a female president, but Americans aren't just ready yet to destroy everything that's right in America by giving over the presidency to people who behave like hairdressers. It will be close between the Muslims and women as to who gets the presidency first, but I'm going to have to say women will win this race. Of course, that will lead directly to our first Muslim cleric as president. Hopefully, I will have died by then.
Will someone at Wachovia please get some damn deposit envelopes to the ATM machines! I went to 3 Wachovias before finding one lousy envelope to stick my meager deposit in so that my baby can have a nice Hanumas this year. I want an email explaining why this practice has to occur. I know you're reading this in between fucking people over. I'll bet the first person I hear from will be some lady who's thinking about everything but making the customer happy.
Can't you hire some jackass to drive around each Sunday to make sure all the ATMs have deposit envelopes handy? Hell I'll do it if you waive all my service charges and overdrafts for life. Can I use another sort of envelope of the same size? Until I get some answers, I'll just have to rely on the 20 extra envelopes I took at the 3rd stop.
The outrage industry continues to churn at a pace just behind the rest of the nation's economy. In Arizona, Racist Cop is opening a franchise in Tempe.Ariz. cop had black men rap away ticket
Sat Dec 2, 7:07 AM ET
TEMPE, Ariz. - City leaders have apologized after a program on Tempe's cable channel showed a white police officer telling two black men they could get out of a littering ticket by performing a rap.
Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman and Police Chief Tom Ryff apologized for the show Thursday and suspended its future production after black community leaders voiced outrage and disappointment.
Yeah, they expected a good beat down. Not that much money in suing cops who start impromptu minstrel shows.
"I accept responsibility for the actions of my staff and apologize to any members of our community who have been offended," Ryff said during a news conference Friday.
This never happens in Reno.
The segment appeared on "Tempe StreetBeat," a program produced by police in the Phoenix suburb that followed several officers on patrol. It shows Sgt. Chuck Schoville pulling over two men in August in a mall parking lot.
He first asks for a name and ID from the driver and then asks the two men if they know how much the fine is for littering.
The officer then tells the men that they can avoid getting a littering ticket "if the two of you just do a little rap about — what do you want to do a rap about? Littering? About the dangers of littering."
The two men agree, and each performs a short rap, laughing afterward.
Leaders of chapters of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the National Action Network expressed outrage and demanded that the city act.
Right. Better the cop should just ticket them for littering and use it as a flimsy pretext to search the car for guns, drugs, and planted guns and drugs, and then beat them with a shovel until they slip quietly off to jail for a couple of nights. Making them rap and letting them go. What was this cop thinking?
Furthermore, given what happened here in the ATL last week, what with the gun-toting granny in one of the worst drug neighborhoods in America getting killed after shooting some cops on a warrant, and in NY, where some cops shot a some thugs 50 times, and the ensuing knee jerk for police head on a serving dish, perhaps we should rope off the zip codes of high police animosity and withhold all legal assistance until they work it out themselves. Let these communities that are quick to disparage the police draw up their own laws and enforcement. They've already done most of the work, anyway. Announce a date, and build a wall around them. No one leaves, and no one enters until they figure it out or kill each other.
All I know is they tried it on "The Wire," and it worked. Chuckle if you must, but watching a fictional show about inner city crime is more than some journalists do all year.
