Shootings take us on A trip down memory lane

Tagged:  

With the news tonight that two people were shot in the Kroger parking lot, it brings back fond memories of the experience I had in that exact spot. I posted the article below on Swampbubbles in July describing the fine people I observed. DTOM commented then that he knew the names of the people I saw--Pimp George, Susie the panhandler, and Trick Willy the homeless guy. I shudder to think that any of these citizens were involved in tonight's shootings.

I try to stay west of Talmadge Road as much as possible. But a family member was in town and from her days in Toledo, she was familiar with the layout of the Kroger store on Monroe and Secor. So I took her over and waited in the car, Wow--talk about your sociological experience!

First, I see this interesting fellow in a pimped-out Mercedes (gold trim, fancy rims) pull up to a spot in the far reaches of the lot. Sure enough--a woman who looked like she would be more at home on a section of Monroe Street in the heart of downtown--gets out of her car. The Mercedes dude, wearing his rust-colored zoot suit (with matching shoes), gets out of his car. They embrace, she gets into his car--and off they go into the night. I felt the need to immerse myself in a vat of antibacterial soap.

Why The Dems Lost 2/3 Of Their Constituants

Tagged:  

They didn't get their message out, IMO. Next time, I suggest they campaign a lot harder, on issues like: the war on women, playing the race card more effectively, voter intimidation, and so on. And of course, from now on the DNC will have to have a Black person on the presidential ticket, or they lose the 2/3s forever.

Things I don't want to hear from the new republican majority

God love Scott Walker! He's been dragged through the mud by the liberals and unions and has come out as a winner several times! The rest of the Republicans should take their cue from him.

Now's the time for Republicans to take the Country in a 180 degree different direction from Obama and his minions. Will they have the guts? Let's hope we don't hear any Republican say the following:

"We must reach across the aisle." (Nope--just use your majority to get things done the way the voters who elected you want them done.)

"We must repeal and replace Obamacare." (Repeal--yes, Replace--no.)

WE WIN!! THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!

Isn't "Souls to the Polls" illegal?

Tagged:  

A couple of days ago, The Blade ran an article about 10 local black churches that will use vans to get their members to the early voting center this Sunday. This event will be called "Souls to the Polls." This is of particular interest to me considering that the clergy at my Catholic church was so extremely careful not to be political when Obamacare forced Catholics to betray their opposition to abortion and provide church and school employees with pregnancy termination coverage.

Much to many of his parishioners dismay, my priest explained that he couldn't talk at the pulpit to any specificity about the impact that Obamacare was having on religious freedom because the church was tax-exempt and couldn't participate in political discussion/activity.

So, how is "Souls to the Polls" not a violation of the law? It's certain that these church officials would say "we're only providing transportation." Yeah, sure.

Are we soon to witness the end of the petroleum era?

According to Dennis Gartman, a breakthrough in nuclear fusion by Lockheed-Martin is going to make petroleum go the way of whale oil. Here's the article from the Yahoo-Finance website: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/gartman-were-witnessing-end-oil-221420996....

Cleanup time

I am tired of the "shoot everyone until the last one standing" approach to commenting here. Over the next several months expect some changes - one immediate change is that if you can't follow the commenting rules you are off for at least two weeks - it started this morning and will go back in time 32 hrs.

It is not going to require much to do this - all of you have been warned, so there does not need to be any more "please clean up your act." The worst offenders know very well what the problems are and justify their breaking the rules because others break the rules. I am going back through my flags and anything over the last 32 hrs. A newbie may get some guidance, but those who have been here and have been warned, well don't expect any warnings.

Evidence supports Officer's story

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/new-evidence-supports-officers-ac...

The Dept of Justice had previously stated that there was not enough to bring charges of any Civil Rights violations.

Now experts have say that the autopsy report supports the testimony of Officer Wilson.

The damning evidence is that there is a wound on Brown's thumb with gun powder residue inside the wound and Brown's blood inside the Officer's vehicle. That suggests there was a struggle over the weapon in the car.

What are Michelle Obama's girls eating at school?

In true "Let them eat cake" royal tradition, Michelle Obama is insisting that public school students eat meager lunches with such kid-friendly items as kale while her daughters are enjoying gourmet-like meals at their exclusive private school.

The Michelle inspired school lunch program has been met with such negative reviews that there's a Twitter hashtag (#ThanksObama) where students post pictures of their pathetic school meals.

However, Malia's and Sasha's lunches at the Sidwell Friends School are enough to fill tummies with mouth-watering delights. According to the school's website (link provided later), October 24's lunch will be:

Minestrone Soup
Buffalo Chicken Salad
Baked Ziti
Vegetable Ziti
Roasted Cauliflower
Kiwi

Yum!

Why Do Homosexuals Want To Marry In Christian Churches?

I can't understand why homosexual people want to get married by a Christian minister or in a Christian Church. They have chosen a lifestyle that clearly contradicts the teaching of both the Old and New Testaments but they insist on marrying under Christian traditions. A Christian couple was fined $10,000 by the State of New York and ordered to pay a lesbian couple $1,500 each for not allowing them to marry on their property. http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/09/27/gay-mafia-claims-another-...

From lagging 'job creation' to lower charity giving, the wealthy give less back to society

A new report shows that the wealthy are giving only 4.6% of their salaries to charity, compared to 16.6% of those earning $25,000 or less. The least generous? Those who make $500,000 to a few million a year
