Zo keep on going...man, you are so right, ALL the time. And I like when you mention the blame game, that the majority of the house and senate was democrats when Bush was in office, and Obama keeps blaming Bush for inheriting the mess. Merry Christmas my friend.
I'd love it if Dr. Laura Schlessinger had actually said this:
No race trusts or likes the white race.
All American Africans distrust and despise all other races.
Now go out and face the day.
I love 'Zo's' commentary, common sense is getting harder ans harder to find these days but keep in mind, these days, no good deed goes unpunished. People (liberal and conservative) might be more likely to help a person in need if they didn't feel like it was going to come back to bite them.
Case in point. A young Black Vet manages to get to his car and come back into an AutoZone with his own hand gun and stops an ARMED robbery. What was his reward? Loosing his job. AutoZone has a 'zero tolerance policy' (like many businesses) for employees bringing guns into the store. Now, if I was an armed robber, which stores do you think I might be more likely to rob (and potentially kill somebody)? The stores where I already knew I would face no armed resistance, or the stores where I might actually have to take the risk of looking down the muzzle of a gun myself? How about a 'zero tolerance policy' for armed robberies instead?
As far as the "subway control", why doesn't the Transportation Authority retrofit the platforms with doors like they have for the trains to the terminals at Atlanta-Hartsfield, O'Hare, and other high volume airports aroud the nation have. Doors remain closed util the train arrives and the train doors are synced with the platform doors. Yeah, it's expensive but what's a human life worth?
I love this guy!!! By thunder, he's tapped into something here. Yo, homey! Lead on. I'll follow you.
I demand that we implement "subway waiting control" laws to prevent this from happening again. We must require that people undergo background checks and be forced to carry "Subway Waiting Permits" before they're allowed to stand about waiting for a subway train to stop. If it weren't for that subway train, that man would still be alive.
Black and muslim. Liberal's brains would short circuit before they could condemn this animal.
"The real story here is that Naeem Davis is clearly a devout Muslim, and one who displayed behavior characteristic of jihadis after he committed murder.
Naeem Davis, a Muslim immigrant from Sierra Leone sporting a pious Muslim beard, seemed "very calm, not crazy," after he murdered Ki Suk Han. As is typical of jihadis, he blamed his victim, making up the preposterous story that this man nearly twice his age attacked him."
The BIGGER part of this story isn't the race....the black guy is from Sierre Leone (sp?) and he's a MUSLIM.
www.atlasshrugs.com had a good article on it the other day.
Kinda like the bombing at the Social Security Offices in Casa Grande, AZ by an Iraqi immigrant........nothing to see here, nothing to report, just your everyday fireworks, no terrorism mentioned. Sometimes the things not said make you the most uneasy.
Zo has a way with words and good common sense solutions, love him for all he does to shed light on topics that need to be addressed.
My sister works in that office complex-different building. Thank God nobody was injured or killed. They need to send that Iraqi "refugee" right back to Iraq! One way ticket is a whole lot cheaper than a trial and then housing the SOB for however many months (not kidding about months!) jail time he gets.
Yep, we have a system of checks and balances in this government of ours. Let's see how that works.
In 2006-2008, the Democrats owned both houses of Congress, therefore it must have been Bush's fault for our demise, because he was the President. Uhhh...
In 2008-2010, Democrats owned both houses of Congress and the Presidency and could do anything they wanted. Did the economy recover in a sweeping boom time? Uhhh...
In 2010-2012, the Republicans took over the House of Representatives, so they naturally got blamed for our fiscal demise. Let's see, did the Senate pass a budget in that time frame? Uhhh...
Now, in 2012, the wisdom of this nation reelected the same status quo into office. Who will get blamed for falling over the fiscal cliff - the House which passed several budgets and attempted to curtail spending, or the Senate and President, who wish for more spending than ever and don't want to cut anything - ever (and don't even know what a budget is)?
Uhhh, can you guess...
I love how the typical lefty switches blame between congress and the president. For example everything that happened between 2001 and 2008 is Bush's fault even though the democrats had significant power in congress for most of the time. Including super majorities in both houses for the last two years.
But nothing is Obama's fault even though the democrats controlled both houses of congress for two years and controlled the senate for four years. The repubs have only controlled the house for two years yet they and Bush get the blame for everything and Obama get's blamed for nothing.
Gotta love this man. I love his common sense and the fact that he's so cool is a bonus. Thanks Scoop.
Me too although I think he's a little off on the "Let it burn" concept. The basic concept behind is let it burn is this.
The people voted for more government and more welfare but they don't want to pay for it. They've been fooled into thinking that "the rich" can pay for it all. They are wrong of course, so the idea is ok you want welfare and big government, then you should pay for it that way you can see how expensive it really is.
I tend to believe that it's the best option. It's simple, let it go, let everyone go back to paying the high levels of taxes they paid before the Bush tax cuts, and then when the democrat party has been well and thoroughly crushed under the weight of all of their lies being revealed (like that the Bush tax cuts were only a tax cut for the rich) and then we can rebuild.
What it comes down to is this. It's going to burn anyway, there is nothing that can be done to stop it now. So we may as well get it over with so we can move on.
The progressives have been pushing us towards the cliff. They want us to go over it. Does anyone really think they don't have a plan for afterwards and are not ready to implement it? Does anyone think conservative have a plan and are ready to implement it should the fall happen? Given the way media spews propaganda who would win the rebuild?
Giving in and giving up is a sure way to progressive success. What conservatism needs is solidarity, talking points they all repeat, stay on subject, don't go for the slight of hand distractions. Pick ten talking points and stay on them, don't get off topic, bring all questions back to the talking point. Let's face it the progressive have the tools and use them to their advantage, use the same tools with the truth and conservatism wins. When asked a question our response should be, "That's not what I'm here to talk about this is …". As much as we despise debbie wasserman schults and andy wiener they are both incredible at this, as most progressive talking heads are. They get their talking points orders and they go out and deliver them, of that there is no dispute.
There's nothing to stop it now. We're going over the cliff regardless. I believe they think they have a plan. But they also have a tendency to overplay their hand. Also it should be noted that "conservative" does not equal "republican". It's true that the republicans will get the blame. We have to make sure that it's understood. That we aren't the "republicans". I understand everything you're saying and I agree with most of it. But I'm still in the "let it burn" crowd.
Doesn't the fiscal cliff just equate to austerity? It isn't any different than what Greece, Spain, Portugal, and others are going through. We are just getting into it. As long as the US is determined to sell out our country to foreign banks, it will just keep progressing. This has nothing to do with left/right, it has to do with a global shutdown of the industrialized world.
Kinda puts a new spin on the "fiscal cliff", doesn't it? A lot of people have seen this coming for a long time. You won't see the MSM reporting on this issue, or talking bad about the Fed and the IMF, but they have been killing countries for many years, and we are getting close to the end.
I agree on that too SineWavingFriend. Let the cliff happen. Half of us were thrown of a few years ago already. It's going to hit some folks who don't deserve it hard though- but I think those folks already have planned for it anyway.
This is stupid to prolong it, as the danged politicians haven't passed a budget in years, and even if they did, they'd not stick to it anyway. Tax and spend til you have nothing left. That's all they care about. Well, it's gonna crash, and no matter what the Republicans will get the blame. So what. I'm sick of stupid petty threats, and of career politicians who pander to this crap.
Sorry *blush* I'm suddenly in a yuckie mood tonight. Thanks for letting me vent.
The drones will keep playing the democrat/republican left/right ping pong game, but I think that there are many who are done with it. I know a group a people that you could hook up with. They are called the .....................Oh wait, that is your party.
Judging by the photo I would say yes. I've been on those NYC subway platforms and those trains aren't taking their time. I would say that nobody would be able to reach the guy and there's no way that train would be able to stop.
That is my question too, was no person there with a heartbeat and an ounce of empathy for another human being??? The photographer, maybe? A photo more important than a life? Yikes!!!
In the interview he gave following the event the photographer claims that he was farther away than the image reveals. He also claimed that it happened quickly and was changing setting on his camera as he was about to do a photo shoot. If you have a time to get the camera to your eye, focus and shoot ..you have enough time to be screaming pushing and shoving your way to this poor man. Although in reality he may have not had time to make a difference, at least he wold have made an attempt. I wonder what he sees when he closes his eyes at night.....This poor man was a husband and a father...prayers..
