  1. Can somebody point out some success stories of America involvement in the Arab world?
  2. The mountain climbing pic is still on page 3. Snake's a lot of things, but I'm not sure he's a snitch. Now on the other hand if you post a pic of Steve, he'll definitely report it. I guess seeing what he actually looks like ruins his whole "I'm the same height and weight as Andre Johnson, and I can kill a cheetah with my bare hands" persona.
  3. "Look at their fancy memes compared to what were not doing." - Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J. SENATORS WANT TO BLOW ISIS OUT OF THE WATER WITH FANCY MEMES https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2015/05/07/senators-want-blow-isis-water-fancy-memes/
  4. Whenever polling is conducted that asks people from around the world who the greatest threat to world peace is, the answer overwhelmingly is the United States.
  5. I'm a big believer in the First and Second Amendments. People who pull free speech stunts like this remind me of the people who open carry their AR15's while shopping in Walmart as a "political statement."
  6. Google her name. She also claimed that there was a Mattel talking baby doll designed to convert children to Islam.
  7. Geller continued to rail against the spread of Islam through her blog, Atlas Shrugs, where she wrote of her belief that President Obama is a secret Muslim who wants to destroy the United States from within the White House and is the love child of Malcolm X. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/05/04/up-to-speed-who-is-muhammad-cartoon-contest-organizer-pamela-geller.html
  8. dirtyhairy, what are your views on doberman pinschers and mountain climbing?
  9. A 9 year old reviewed Avengers negatively and this was the first comment. http://www.esquire.com/entertainment/movies/a34769/avengers-age-of-ultron-kid-review/
  10. Freddie Gray never had a chance By Eugene Robinson May 1 Here is the key finding in the Freddie Gray case: Police had no legitimate reason to arrest him in the first place. The ostensible charge against Gray that he had an illegal switchblade was false, according to Baltimore City States Attorney Marilyn Mosby. The folding knife found in his pocket was of a design that is perfectly legal under Maryland law, Mosby said. Gray never should have been put into the police van where he suffered a fatal injury to his spine. Now does everyone understand the anger in Baltimore? The assumption that police officers made from the beginning was that Gray must be guilty of something. He was standing on a street corner not a crime. He made eye contact with one of the officers who approached him also not a crime. He ran away still not a crime. But he was a young African-American man in a depressed inner-city neighborhood, so he enjoyed a presumption of guilt, not of innocence. He never had a chance. Running from the police is not a crime. It is true that courts have given police more latitude in high-crime areas, so the officers might have been able to defend their decision to chase Gray. But once they had caught him and found he was not in violation of any law police had no justification whatsoever for taking him into custody. Police officers exercise discretion every day. They dont stop everyone they see walking in the street, selling loose cigarettes, driving with a broken tail light or loitering on a high-crime corner. They make choices. Far too often, they choose to assume that black men must be guilty of something and look for reasons to arrest them. Imagine what would happen if police cruised the nations wealthiest suburbs, looking for excuses to arrest people. Imagine the outrage if officers regularly patrolled golf courses, taking middle-aged white men into custody for illegally betting on the outcome of a match. Imagine how people would react if such a trumped-up arrest ended in the death of the person being arbitrarily detained. It is gratifying that six police officers have been charged in Grays death. Justice, this time, will have a fighting chance. But the Black Lives Matter campaign should continue until they actually do. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/wp/2015/05/01/freddie-gray-never-had-a-chance/
  11. All 6 cops now in custody for Freddie Gray death. All have bail set lower than teen who smashed police car with cone and turned himself in http://gu.com/p/48xmc/stw
  12. The knife found on Freddie Gray was not a switchblade and therefore legal. Gray was illegally arrested according to State 's Attorney Mosby. Freddie Gray begged the police for medical help, and they ignored him. The second prisoner in the police van says officers took care of handling him at police district before tending to Freddie Gray who was unresponsive. The autopsy showed no evidence Gray banged his head against van wall. Before Freddie Gray the Baltimore Police left Dondi Johnson paralyzed from the waste down after a rough ride and paid him $7.4 million. Before Freddie Gray the Baltimore Police paralyzed Jeffrey Alston from the neck down in a rough ride and paid him $37 million. Disgusting.
  13. She's overseeing Freddie Gray case; both parents, grandfather, 2 aunts, 3 uncles are police officershttp://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/04/30/1381507/-She-s-overseeing-Freddie-Gray-case-both-parents-grandfather-2-aunts-3-uncles-are-police-officers# She said she heard the call re: "no justice, no peace", though. Meanwhile, the police oversight package dwindles further. Senate Approps kills police bodycams bill (HB1285) and adding civilians to Peace Officer Standards and Training Board (HB1287).
  14. Investigative Reporter for WBAL-TV Jayne Miller has been shooting down that narrative about Gray injuring himself since it first appeared. https://twitter.com/jemillerwbal And if you wanna see a real thug, google "Lieutenant Brian Rice." Baltimore police officer who chased Freddie Gray had pattern of violence - court filings Brian Rice, lieutenant suspended in police-van death that sparked federal inquiry, was ordered to stay away from man who had fear of imminent harm or death http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/apr/23/baltimore-officer-who-chased-freddie-gray-had-pattern-of-violence-court-filings
  15. Reporter: What will prevent another Freddie Gray? State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby: Accountability. R: There hasn't been any for so long. Mosby: You're getting it now.
  16. The cops who fired 41 shots at Amadou Diallo on his doorstep when he reached for his wallet were charged, too, before being acquitted.
  17. Maryland State legislator Patrick McDonough, the guest host of a drive-time radio program on Wednesday morning, discussed the possibility of revoking food stamps from the parents of protesting Baltimore youth. Later during the same broadcast, McDonough called for a "scientific study" of what he called the "thug nation" in the black community. McDounough is a Republican member of the states House of Delegates who represents a suburban area northeast of the city. https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2015/04/30/pat-mcdonough-food-stamps-baltimore/
  18. Ah yes, public service unions - government organized as a special interest to lobby itself to expand itself. "All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service. It has its distinct and insurmountable limitations when applied to public personnel management. The very nature and purposes of Government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with Government employee organizations." - Franklin D. Roosevelt, August 16, 1937
  19. Since 2011, Baltimore City has paid $5,765,065 in settlements and court judgments on cases alleging misconduct by police http://data.baltimoresun.com/news/police-settlements/ "The blow was so heavy. My eyes swelled up. Blood was dripping down my nose and out my eye." "*****, you aint no better than any of the other old black ****** I have locked up." "They slammed me down on my face," Brown added, her voice cracking. "The skin was gone on my face. ..."
  20. "In the areas of the country where the government has proven itself unable or unwilling to defend the negroes when they are being brutally and unjustly attacked, then negroes themselves should take whatever steps necessary to defend themselves. And one of the best methods by which this can be done is to establish rifle clubs. Its legal in this country to own a rifle. This doesnt mean that the Negro is going to initiate some kind of aggressive action against anybody, but it does mean that the Negro will be serving notice that no longer does he believe in turning the other cheek and being the constant victim of someone elses brutality." - Malcolm X
