April Fools' Quiz


Quick, which of the following stories do you think is an April Fools' Day Joke?

A. Ignorant Negro masquerading as a lawmaker tells an Admiral in the Navy that he worries that too many troops on the Island of Guam could cause that bad boy to tip over?

B. Tiger Woods pays a jump off TEN MILLION DOLLARS to take R. Kelly's advice and keep their stuff on the down low?

C. A 15 year old in New Jersey pimped out her seven year old sister, causing the poor child to be gang raped.

D. Lark Voorhies e-mailed me today and said she heard that I was hunting her and would just love to meet me. She wanted to know how soon I could make it to L.A.

Okay, I know that most of you are saying D, because, well, you are obviously not familiar with my charming side. Of course, sadly, you would be right.

Still, I wouldn't think that you would be off base for selecting A, B, or C.

WTF? Did Cynthia McKinney's replacement, Hank Johnson, really say this:?
"My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize." Willard responded back "We don't anticipate that." Willard added that they would add only 25,000 more into the Guam population so it shouldn't be an issue." [Story]

Negro, don't you ever say some ignorant shit like that ever again. And I know some of you Negroes are saying to leave him alone because we are only giving white folks and wingnuts ammunition to make fun of us. But you all can stop it right now. This Negro needed to be called out. That was just plain ignorant. He ain't one of us. I don't know anyone that ignorant.

One of Hank Johnson's spokespeople noted that Congressman Johnson's remarks that Guam might capsize were made figuratively.

Yeah right. Well would it have hurt to say something to the effect that "I am speaking figuratively, of course"? Of course not. But you didn't. You know why? Because you were not speaking figuratively. You were being ignorant.

And Tiger, I know that ten million is not a lot of scratch to you. But trust me, you could have done a lot more with that ten million than just giving it to a jump off so that she wouldn't kiss and tell. What could she possibly say that hasn't been said? That you did the mile high thing in the cock pit of your G-4 ? That she had multiple partners while you watched and pretended your johnsons was a putter? I mean come on Tiger; TEN MILLION? I sure hope she was worth it.

And what about the other jump offs? Did you forget about them when you were buying off jump off number one? I swear you better be in the running at Augusta come Sunday, or it's going to be ugly for you.

I won't even comment on C, other than to say it's true.


Happy April's Fools' Day, folks!

OH I was hoping all of them were jokes except the Lark Voorhies one. Except I wonder what Mrs. Field would do then? hehehehehehe Happy April Fools to you too! hheheheh

Gregory said...

A. Guam capsizing? Are we sure this wasn't a brilliant April Fools joke?

No, I guess not. Dumbasses come in all colours.

B. R. Kelly, the creative urinator?

I would have guessed not, but this is one of those you-can't-make-this-shit-up type questions.

C. This is too sad to joke about.

D. Ask Tiger's advice on this one.

Rep Johnson's statement is far less clownish than boarding a boat, attempting to enter Israeli territorial waters, get locked up and then be the subject of a story which claimed that there are more AFRICANS in Israeli jails than any other group of people. Having this CT make the rounds on the Internet only to have it retracted as patently false.

This is a 364 day fool.

I find them utterly charming and physically attractive.

However, I will say that my husband looks better than both of them. I really lucked out!

There's something to be said about childhood crushes! hehehe

La♥audiobooks said...

A. No comment. Must be the public school system.

C. As angry as I am with the 15 year old girl, deep down I'm willing to bet all her life she has also been a victim of similarly vicious crimes herself. Furthermore, I bet those rapist were over 18. This is what happens when street pirates take a break from the streets when it's raining and perform their usual atrocities indoors. Who on earth are protecting black women a black girls?

D. Does Mrs. Field read this blog?

Seriously, does she have a handle? I've always wanted to know that (I'm always in some ruckus on this blog). I don't want to end up getting into it with Mrs. Field by mistake and not knowing it's her. She's not MMM is she?

La♥audiobooks said...

Sorry for those typos, proof reading isn't my strength. But seriously field, does Mrs. Field comment?

Eurasian Sensation said...

SURELY Hank Johnson was speaking figuratively. I'm thinking it was a statement along the lines of "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse." No one could be so stupid as to actually think that would happen, so I figure he didn't feel it necessary to point out that he didn't actually mean it.

Field, "But trust me, you could have done a lot more with that ten million than just giving it to a jump off so that she wouldn't kiss and tell. What could she possibly say that hasn't been said?"

Tiger did the right thing. You may not know this, but white women of her caliber are expensive and can cost millions. If she had been Black, it would not have cost much. A new car would have been more than enough to keep her quiet.

I wonder how much Gloria Allred made from this very difficult case?

@ FN:

I was laughing with you until I got to "C"...where are the parents/neighbors/people who give a damn what happens to our youth at??

And...

Did you hear the statement from Tiger's camp blaming his poor choice of behavior on the company he keeps...which is...M. Jordan and C. Barkley...?

And....

I have heard some rumors about their bad behavior in the Bahamas... across from Paradise Island...you know the place....the hole in the wall with two pool tables...where you step in mud coming out the door on a rainy afternoon...

And...

I still say that WE need to choose better role models for our children...maybe these shootings and gang raping will get out of our community...

And...

When Marion Barry was in office as mayor of the District of Columbia we never had a spitting incident or any incidences of mass murder of youth by youth...

And...

I don't celebrate anything that has to do with foolishness :) I just give it :)

Oh, I know you want Tiger to succeed because you have a bleeding heart, and you know it is God's Will that Tiger do well. This is the age of men like Obama and Tiger. It will be that way for the next few years. So enjoy the ride!

Tiger got in trouble because he was an untreated sex addict, which he is being treated for now.

The world will see a "new" Tiger Woods with a much higher consciousness, a more focused athlete, a more mature man, a dedicated husband and father, a man who has suffered and has become a much better person because of it. He is going to be awesome and the world will embrace him.

Come to think of it, Jesse James needs some treatment too because he is definitely an addict out of control. Poor Sandra.

MR--he was the best. he loved to argue and debate and purposely went to blogs where he knew he wasn't wanted but gained their respect. lawrence aster. (sp)

L audio, i'm away and not on much but what to say THANK YOU for your statement to me the other day. i like you, too, and here's the thing--i never even thought about my "whiteness" much before getting on this blog so i was indifferent and not aware that anyone would like accuse me of not being white. and think i should be insulted?

not being aware is something that gives me "privilege" as you all have taught me. i am sure many black people feel their skin color all the time.

so, i do find something good shit in every situation. something i can learn from to be a better person. better mother to my kids.

sorry to t/j.

You might have to go a little easy on Hank Johnson. He is suffering from advanced Hepatitis C

Atlanta Journal Constitution 12/7/09

WASHINGTON -- For months, speculation has swirled in both Atlanta and Washington about U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson's health.

The Lithonia Democrat's already-thin frame has shed 30 pounds in the past year. His speech is slower than ever, and he regularly gets lost in thought in the middle of a discussion. He is easily fatigued and often impatient and irritable.

Monday, he revealed why.

In an exclusive interview with the AJC, Johnson disclosed he has been battling hepatitis C, an incurable, blood-borne liver disease, for more than a decade.

He was officially declared free of the virus in January, but it has ravaged his liver, resulted in thyroid problems and other health issues, including depression, for which he's also being treated. To keep the disease in remission, Johnson is going through an experimental treatment that he said has been the worst part so far...
http://www.ajc.com/news/u-s-rep-hank-230506.html

If this is the case, I believe the question should be why is the brother still in office? Clearly he is no longer capable of representing his constituents effectively.

I don't care how slow, Specical Ed that 15 year old is... she had sense enough to have sex, get the money and pimp her 7 year old sister/half sister. Throw the book at her ass--she's not able to contribute POSITIVELY to society no ways.

Val:

Unlike Sarah Palin - Hank Johnson has support of the majority of Black voters in the majority Black South Dekalb.


It is interesting how people are attuned to the "risk" of putting Palin into the VP slot (which I agree with) are silent about the escapades of John Edwards:

* Using paid staff members to search hotel rooms for condoms and other incriminated evidence

* Telling Andy Young to take his $5000 European suit to a tailor and have the tags replaced with "Union made in the USA" tags

* The night prior to kicking off his campaign in New Orleans using poor Blacks as his backdrop - he stayed in the city's most expensive hotel and had his staff scruff up his jeans and work clothes that he appeared in. The fable of Reagan going to Philly MS to kick off his campaign as a "wink wink" to States Rights racists lives on. The tale of John Edwards' use of Poor, Victimized Blacks to send his message died because there was no "Lampblack Yellow Journalists" who picked up upon it and REBUKED the use of the Negro as such a stage prop.

* Using people on the federal payroll to tend to his vacation home, walk his dogs, run constant personal errands for him as if they were servants, paid by Uncle Sam

* Lastly - getting his top aide to claim to be the "Baby Daddy" so that his presidential bid would not be tanked.

George Curry, Cornell West and other Black Progressive-Fundamentalists were backers of "Mr 2 Americas". In the world of Black Progressive politics - an APOLOGY to the people for MISLEADING THEM after a poor character assessment is NEVER required.

In his book tour for the past several months, former aid Andy Young was not booked by any news outlet that caters to Black people to my knowledge. This despite the fact that 90% of Black people saw him as a credible PERSON back in 2004.

Funny how all of this works, isn't it?

Infidelity seems to be way too high on the list of things that promote a toxic marriages, whereas verbal and physical abuse, failure to take responsibility and support of their family is closer to the bottom.

I think way too many women have protested too much about Tiger's infidelity, whereas in real life I see more acquiescence.

"I hope he falls flat on his face"; what would that accomplish. To loose his livelihood and his ability to support his children or to satisfy some wrong that is perceived to be done to the commenter.

Chances are that he probably was a victim of vicious crimes himself but that wouldn't have been a mitigating factor for you.

This is a case of sick depravity on the part of all involved and the only victim was that poor 7 year old child..

ALL of them including the 15 yr old need to be locked up at the mercy of more brutal peer rapists for life!

but

even as typically hypersexual horrid teens go, this is a shockingly extreme case

any teen - male or female -
who would pimp an infant sibling like this has got to be uniquely damaged and monstrously amoral and that usual does indicate severe serial sexual abuse...

children are often sexually abused by siblings...but this major organized sophisticated pimping is indicative of MUCH more than your average rape/incest!

I am supposed to CALL OUT the "Popular Enemies" of Black folks and the Progressive-Fundamentalists.


HOWEVER I "step in it" when I show that the only difference between Far Right and Far Left is that the FAR LEFT has more Black loyalists embedded within to charge that the antics done by the Far Right are RACIST.

With our people being assaulted in more abundance by "NON-Racist" driven actions is it possible that "racially motivated" hatred has been over-Superiorized?

It appears that such a focus has more advantage for the political interests of the provocateurs (on both sides) than it translates into actual protections for the people WITHIN our community.

What would you like to see here.

YOU ARE TOTAL BUCKDANCING CHARLATAN.

You will use any example of crime committed by blacks, especially a horrific crime like this, as a bludgeon to wield against black progressives in a pathetic attempt to delegitimize any black discussion of race.

You don't give two craps about those murdered kids or black victims in general.

You're just coonservative errand boy doing massa's bidding.

Yep. Kind of like an advocate for a particular position using a prop to make a point. The murdered victims are the wingnut's props.

Is that another riddle of yours? Hathor, were you taking a wild guess, or did the voices in your head tell you that? I can tell you're one of them who raised you some black sons.


Steve, I was not giving her a pass, I was trying to show the dynamics of the victim rational and damaged cycles among young black girls who have been abused all their lives. They say misery likes company even in abuse, but it's not an excuse and she too needs prosecution. But It still doesn't change the fact that the 15 year old is obviously damaged by sexual abuse herself by the hands of previous MEN.

'What if it were her 15 year old brother who pimped her?

Chances are that he probably was a victim of vicious crimes himself but that wouldn't have been a mitigating factor for you.
"

And what kind of abuse would that be to cause one street pirate to willingly allow other street pirates to punk him for his little sister, Steve? I thought they were fighting and killing each other for "man" status. Must you always try to parallel the various emotions, fears, pressures and pathologies of black males and black females when it suits you?

And what if the rapist were white males instead of black males? Is that the only mitigating factor for you to show some outrage in these unfortunate situations when black females are attacked, Steve?


"Sorry this black male predator/innocent black female victim paradigm of yours is just plain tired."

Tell that to all the black females who don't live in gated communities and who are being raped and molested as we type.

And I'm going to check that link right now, Steve.

"And what kind of abuse would that be to cause one street pirate to willingly allow other street pirates to punk him for his little sister, Steve?"

Maybe threatening his life or beating his ass every time he steps outside.

"I thought they were fighting and killing each other for "man" status."

No, that's the white media tells you.

Street violence is often out of fear (kill or be killed), greed, or just wanton violence.

"Must you always try to parallel the various emotions, fears, pressures and pathologies of black males and black females when it suits you?"

Must you always seek to portray black men as evil brutes and black women as pure innocents?

"Tell that to all the black females who don't live in gated communities and who are being raped and molested as we type."

And what about the majority who aren't being raped?

Or who may very well have a loving supportive relationship with a man.

That should hate black men because you do?

Some brother must have done the J.O.B. on your head.

I never said black women were innocent. As FP would say, some of them are volunteers, obviously. For the record, I've been the victim of black females far more times than of black males. I would be the last black woman to say black women are innocent. But that will never stop me from speaking out against all kinds of violence, discriminations and bias thrown towards black females.

"Maybe threatening his life or beating his ass every time he steps outside."

Couldn't the rapist have said the same to the 15 year old? Just asking.

And Steve, I don't hate black men anymore than you hate black women. So you decide.

Don't you ever get tired of defending your corporate masters?

Oh, Wait. I understand where you are coming from.[begin sarcasm]

Every real American knows that the only racism remaining in our country is reverse racism that directed against the white taxpayers of our country.

If the Kenyan Muslim has not stolen the presidency, there would be little to no racism remaining in our country.

If not for reverse racism, the blacks and other liberals would not have made such an issue of The National Review hosting an online symposium on Black Unemployment that featured only white participants.

Everyone knows that the only unbiased participants in discussions of racism and women's medical needs are white males.

OK, Dawg. I understand you now. You're a freedom fighter.[end sarcasm]

I mean, seriously, man?

There are gray areas in life. Maybe there are some areas where people of good conscience can disagree. But I have yet to see you comment on this blog about a single white person who does anything wrong. Are you so drunk from the Fox News Kool-Aid that you believe that blacks, and only blacks alone, are responsible for EVERY problem?

Why don't right-wing leaders denounce racism in their midst?
Because it's just the "street pirate" that cause you anguish.

Tell us what makes a street pirate a street pirate. Please. Tell us what societal factors lead us to lives of crime.

People who think as you do, ascribing blacks for every conceivable social ill without THINKING about the conditions that have led and continue to lead to those ills are simply pretenders, who have no redeeming social value and no real knowledge to contribute to the conversation.

Honestly, I don't think you are a black guy. You may have an Avatar of one, but you can't be black. Not that it's a bad thing, it doesn't matter. But I don't think that you can speak intelligently about real issues in OUR community. You might be able to tell me to buy pleated or flat-front khakis, but that's about it.

Sarcasm aside, you shoudn't be saying this.

Why give up an advantage when it still works so well?

Hell, who needs some "racial advantage" when we have goobers walking around with pictures of the President with a bone through his nose, yelling "nigger" and spitting at black legislators?

When was the last time you saw pictures of a First Lady transforming into an ape all over the blogosphere?

There is a double standard alright and it's right in front of everyone's face.

Dr. Clayborne Carson, director of the King Institute at Stanford University, and one of Smiley’s interviewees for the PBS program, said he “wondered sometimes at these Martin Luther King celebrations, if King would be invited.” Certainly King, with his principled anti-war position and opposition to concentrated economic power, would not be one of the president’s favorite people. But then, if King had lived, if the mass movement had not been dismantled by internal and external forces, the seeds of radical change might have been planted deeper, and Black folks might not have been bamboozled two generations later by Dr. King’s political opposite, the war mongering, Wall Street-loving, won’t lift a finger for Black people president, Barack Obama.

The antiwar movement is all but dead and buried. Turnout at the March 20th, 7th year anniversary of the Iraq invasion in Washington D.C. was pitiful, estimated at approximately ten thousand. To make matters worse, approval of the war in Afghanistan has not fallen, but slightly increased in the last few months as U.S. marines led 15,000 troops in an assault on the southern town of Marjah (in the Helmand province) in an effort to dislodge Taliban forces from the area. Tragically, the February assault was accompanied by the deaths of dozen of civilians, severe shortages of food and medicine, and the displacement of upwards of 3,700 families – or more than one fourth of Marjah’s pre-siege population.

After signing off on the biggest military budget in human history, and giving 23 trillion dollars of free money to Wall Street, much of it directly through the Federal Reserve without Congressional oversight, the president is expected to announce a "spending freeze" in his State of the Union address tonight. In keeping with his policy of waiting for "all boats to rise" the First Black President will not announce any special measures to address joblessness in African American communities, which in many urban areas has reached 50% of working age males, and has historically been double the white jobless rate, and is rising faster than unemployment among whites.

Nearly every economic commentator from Fox News (on the fair and balanced side) to Paul Krugman (on the unfair and unbalanced side) is eager to tell you that the “real” unemployment rate is not 10% but 17.3%. The latter figure is the largest of six offered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But that does not make it more meaningful.

Many people believe (incorrectly) that unemployment is a measure of how many jobs were lost. But people can also be unemployed because they quit their job, or because they never worked before, or haven’t worked in a long time. Job losers accounted for 63.7% of the unemployed in December, down from 66.1% in September. If we counted only those who were unemployed because they lost their jobs, that measure of unemployment was 6.3% in December — down from 6.7% in October.

That's not the only area where the Obama administration has twisted incentives. President Obama's mortgage plan uses $275 billion in tax funds to help homeowners refinance and lower rates, to subsidize payments from borrowers to lenders, to get lenders to modify loans, and so on. It gives another $200 billion to the government-created home mortgage companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This is exactly the wrong approach.

The aim is to reduce foreclosures, so the delinquent or nearly delinquent borrowers can stay in their homes. That sounds like a laudable goal, but it ignores a fundamental reality: This money is coming from somebody else. So what the plan is doing is penalizing relatively responsible homeowners or renters - everybody who pays taxes - and rewarding those people who should have known, or at least should have had some inkling, that the loans they were being offered were too good to be true. This program creates exactly the wrong incentives for people deciding whether to borrow and whether to be homeowners.

More generally, it continues the policy of promoting homeownership. We got in this situation because the government wanted to promote homeownership. Until we create a situation where people make decisions based on their own resources and have to think about bearing the consequences of the decisions they make, the root cause of the financial crisis will only get worse.

Essayist and cultural critic Barbara Ehrenreich has always specialized in turning received wisdom on its head with intelligence, clarity, and verve. With some 12 million women being pushed into the labor market by welfare reform, she decided to do some good old-fashioned journalism and find out just how they were going to survive on the wages of the unskilled--at $6 to $7 an hour, only half of what is considered a living wage. So she did what millions of Americans do, she looked for a job and a place to live, worked that job, and tried to make ends meet.
As a waitress in Florida, where her name is suddenly transposed to "girl," trailer trash becomes a demographic category to aspire to with rent at $675 per month. In Maine, where she ends up working as both a cleaning woman and a nursing home assistant, she must first fill out endless pre-employment tests with trick questions such as "Some people work better when they're a little bit high." In Minnesota, she works at Wal-Mart under the repressive surveillance of men and women whose job it is to monitor her behavior for signs of sloth, theft, drug abuse, or worse. She even gets to experience the humiliation of the urine test.

So, do the poor have survival strategies unknown to the middle class? And did Ehrenreich feel the "bracing psychological effects of getting out of the house, as promised by the wonks who brought us welfare reform?" Nah. Even in her best-case scenario, with all the advantages of education, health, a car, and money for first month's rent, she has to work two jobs, seven days a week, and still almost winds up in a shelter. As Ehrenreich points out with her potent combination of humor and outrage, the laws of supply and demand have been reversed. Rental prices skyrocket, but wages never rise. Rather, jobs are so cheap as measured by the pay that workers are encouraged to take as many as they can. Behind those trademark Wal-Mart vests, it turns out, are the borderline homeless. With her characteristic wry wit and her unabashedly liberal bent, Ehrenreich brings the invisible poor out of hiding and, in the process, the world they inhabit--where civil liberties are often ignored and hard work fails to live up to its reputation as the ticket out of poverty. --Lesley Reed --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

http://www.amazon.com/Bait-Switch-Futile-Pursuit-American/dp/B001GQ3DTW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1270245212&sr=1-1-spell





Ehrenreich: What surprised me most, right from day one of my job search, was the surreal nature of the job searching business. For example, everyone, from corporations to career coaches, relies heavily on "personality tests" which have no scientific credibility or predictive value. One test revealed that I have a melancholy and envious nature and, for some reason, was unsuited to be a writer! And what does "personality" have to do with getting the job done, anyway? There's far less emphasis on skills and experience than on whether you have the prescribed upbeat and likeable persona. I kept wondering: Is this any way to run a business? I was also surprised--and disgusted--by the constant victim-blaming you encounter among coaches, at networking events for the unemployed, and in the business advice books. You're constantly told that whatever happens to you is the result of your attitude or even your "thought forms"--not a word about the corporate policies that lead to so much turmoil and misery.

If I had to guess, based on the PREPONDERANCE of the circumstances this was some type of Street Pirate who DIDN'T GIVE A DAMN about t Civil Rights of the victim OR the Civil Rights Leader who's name was on the street upon which he killed and dismembered this Black female.

The fact that this brutal and savage crime did not make the national news is a testament to the fact that it is the characteristics of the KILLER which adds media value to the DEAD BLACK PERSON.

"Furthermore, permanently swelling the government workforce will put a long term drag on economic growth."

Unfortunately, the government is the only place paying a living wage these days. Face it; capitalism has failed miserably in terms of paying workers enough to afford to contribute to the economy. The past 30 years of outsourcing and cutting labor costs have put the middle class on the endangered species list. We are well on our way to the two-tiered economic system of the haves and have nots that existed 100 years ago, before workers won their rights. When will you champions of free enterprise finally admit that without large-scale government regulation keeping them in check, the rapacious "market forces" and those who shape them would instantly turn this country back into a third world shithole in the name of quarterly profits?

That of course is not true, but to the extent government has robbed the private sector, there certainly is more opportunity right now feeding out of the government trough.

I guess your point is that capatalist societies are the poorest on earth? Actually, it is captalism that has brought humanity widespread prosperity.

Not every job needs to pay a "living wage". If you need to support a family, you shouldn't be working 20 hours a week at a minumum wage job. those jobs are for kids or retired people. You have your right to go find a better job.

Ernesto, I feel what you are saying.

Years ago, when a person did not want to go the college or to the military, you could get a "down at the" type job. They paid a decent wage, weren't too overly strenuous, and had benefits.

You could go to the auto plant.

You could go to the dock.

You could go to the textile mill.

Those jobs are gone. Forever.

The private sector is there to make money, period. They is no loyalty. Not to the workers, nor to the country the workers reside in.

No matter how much the wingnuts scream about Mexicans taking their jobs or everything being made in china, they continue to support and vote people into office who are sowing the seeds of their demise.

RIP Eugene Allen.

You are soooo wrong about Obama. He is trying to SAVE America. You just don't want to give him credit-for some unknown reason.

Btw, that teacher is lying on poor Tiger. You are so merciless when it comes to Obama and Tiger. Why are you so hard on good men?

Exactly. So make this country a better place to make money in. The U.S. has some the highest corprate tax rates in the world. We are rich, and we want a clean environment, so we impose all sorts of costly restrictions on businesses. The more the government spends, the more it needs to take from people and businesses.


If you build a plant in China, you pay much lower wages, lower taxes, and you don't have to worry about pollution control costs. You either move your plant to China, or get put out of business by the competitor who does.

You can see this play out inside America, where companies abandon high tax states like Michigan for more busines friendly states like North Carolina.

I'm not saying we want to move toward a model that pays people $0.75 an hour and start dumping toxic waste back in the rivers, but basic economic principles can no more be ignored than the law of gravity.

We need to make America more, not less business friendly. We don't want lower wages or more polution, so we need to lower taxes on corporations and ease restrictions on doing business. I know this is anathema to anti-capatilist populists, but it the only way America can compete. We have more productive workers and better infrastructure than anywhere else. The governemt needs to get out of the way and let us work.

The net effect of Obama's policies will be to drive more companies to greener pastures. A ebbing tide lowers all boats.

Seriously, does she have a handle? I've always wanted to know that (I'm always in some ruckus on this blog). I don't want to end up getting into it with Mrs. Field by mistake and not knowing it's her. She's not MMM is she?
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Well now, let's see, LOL!!!. Field is definitely smart and fine enough to be my husband (plus I LOVE JAMAICAN men) and I'm definitely smart and fine enough to be his wife, LOL!!!

But I imagine it takes a special kinda, non shit talking woman to marry an Attorney, and I just an't that kinda woman, ROTFLMBAO!!!!

Gregory said...

CF,
Reading comprehension. Give it a try sometime.

Surely you can find a better, and more realistic, example of outrages committed by "street pirates". This murder bears all the hallmarks of a serial killing or an organized crime operation. There aren't many drive-by decapitations out there.

That this woman's death is largely unknown actually makes my point more so than the one you think you are making. If she were blonde, white and young and went missing in Aruba, Fox News would be on this 24/7. Since she doesn't meet that profile then her death is a local event and mourned only by her family.

This is not a matter of indifference in the black community, it is a matter of indifference in the "mainstream" media. Do you see where this is going?

"I guess your point is that capatalist societies are the poorest on earth? Actually, it is captalism that has brought humanity widespread prosperity."

That's only true to the extent that it is forced by government to share some of that wealth with its workers. If not, then we are back to the "Gilded Age" of the robber barons 100 years ago where 98 percent of the wealth was concentrated in the hands of 1 percent of the population. The Reaganites have us almost all the way back to that condition right now.

"but to the extent government has robbed the private sector, there certainly is more opportunity right now feeding out of the government trough."

Hilarious. Look at who owns Congress these days. It sure isn't workers. Democrats can't even put a small leash on Wall Street, even after they tanked the whole financial system! How's the weather in your alternate universe where business is the whipping boy of government?

The alleged benefits of ObamaCare may not go into effect for years, but it's already fulfilling one of its central purposes by helping to keep unemployment high by upping the cost of doing business in A-merry-ca.

It isn't a coincidence that all major legislation on the agenda of our wannabe socialist rulers — ObamaCare, Tax & Charade, Amnesty — can be counted on to put more of us out of work; it is by design. Employed citizens are like armed citizens — they aren't helpless enough for Big Government's liking. FDR kept unemployment sky high for a decade with policies that served no other purpose, initiating minimum wage during a depression being only the most obvious. Karl Marx was evil and insane, but he had this much right:


History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.


Ernesto, you think you are starring in a tragedy, but you are only providing comic relief.

"FDR kept unemployment sky high for a decade with policies that served no other purpose"

A typical wingnut, distorting and flat out inventing history. Again, what kind of fact-free universe do you live in?

Were you aware that FDR took office when unemployment rate was around 25 percent thanks to Hoover's strategy of trusting the engine of free enterprise to right itself? FDR got it down to 10 percent in 4 years through massive government intervention. Then it went back up to 20 percent because FDR felt it was time to scale back his stimulus program and let the same engine of free enterprise that Hoover trusted work its magic. Except there was no magic. And there isn't today, either!

So laugh at that, since you are providing nothing but a farcical version of history.

[quote]Unfortunately, the government is the only place paying a living wage these days. Face it; capitalism has failed miserably in terms of paying workers enough to afford to contribute to the economy[/quote]

How The HECK do you have a rational conversation with a person like Ernesto?

In his mind the GOVERNMENT PAYING LIVING WAGED JOBS is proof that the GOVERNMENT should take more jobs in the economy because it PAYS WELL.

All of this at a time when these same governments are WHACKING tens of thousands of workers NATION WIDE because they can't afford their budgetary commitments.

CAPITALISM HAS FAILED MISERABLY WITH IN TERMS OF PAYING WORKERS ENOUGH TO AFFORD TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE ECONOMY.

For some of you this did not "wet you up" as it sits nicely with your ideology.

TO ME this is an IGNORANT circular reference.
Ernesto - WHAT is it that has a WORKER "contributing to the economy"?

Is it his LABOR?
Or are you speaking of his choice of SALES PRICE at which he will SELL HIS LABOR? Otherwise have it stockpiled and not used productively in the economy?

Ernesto when you see nations like Honduras or Chad or Laos in which their economy is very underdeveloped - DO YOU make the mental note that in these NON-CAPITALISTIC NATIONS - the people who are not engaged in the MARKET ECONOMY appear to act eerily like those in America who suffer from permanent unemployment?

You have a PERVERTED manner of looking at things. The default state of man, absent an economic system is POVERTY and scavenging. In your hatred for capitalism (the system that YOU JUST HAPPEN TO LIVE WITHIN) the abstraction between your THEORIES and your actions afford you the LEISURE TIME to pontificate with people distributed all over the world. We listen to you attack the very system, which, if not present would have you talking to your damned self in some dark room somewhere.

progressives like president bongo will turn america into detroit. then you will whine it's whiteys fault when your check is a no show.how about some real facts once in a while instead of whitey bashing.if you want to get off the national socialist democrats plantation all you have to do is stay in school and learn some thing,don't knock up the sisters and stay out of trouble with the law.if you want a living wage get off your ass and work for it.oh and show up every day on time.the more socialism the less money you have because that bull crap makes every one poor.class warfare hahahahaha!

Ernesto said...

The absolute and total ignorance of the last two posters is mind-boggling. I'm not sure even where to begin! Guess I'll start with CF and this gem:

"these same governments are WHACKING tens of thousands of workers NATION WIDE because they can't afford their budgetary commitments."

Do you think that Bush launching a couple trillion-dollar wars while cutting taxes on corporations and rich people MAY HAVE something to do with this?

"WHAT is it that has a WORKER "contributing to the economy"?"

How about, at a minimum, a worker being paid enough money to buy whatever it is they are producing? If they can't buy stuff then what are they contributing to the economy?

"Ernesto when you see nations like Honduras..."

Hilarious that you should cite Honduras as representing a non-capitalist country since it is a VERY capitalist banana republic that the United States has continually raped and plundered since the first days of the Monroe Doctrine. Did you know we backed a recent coup and bogus election there because the last elected president of that country wanted to hold a democratic referendum? Of course you didn't.

Bruce, just curious, what is it you do for a living? And have you ever been on the government payroll, including the military or had any government benefits at all in your life?

Hey Ernesto - get yourself a job.

Ernesto said...

Dear Anon. Wingnut,

Gainfully employed here, with a good government job and represented by a union. This means that I actually make enough money to contribute nicely to the economy. Which is less and less possible in the private sector thanks to the policies of deregulation, outsourcing and downsizing espoused by misanthropes like yourself.

bruce said...

you talk like a commie from south of the border ernesto any economic activity by the usa helped the locals. to bad you can't say the same for you commies in say cuba which you turned into a shit hole.i have worked since i was 8yrs old and just retired. i do not depend on government for my retirement because i knew that people like you would bankrupt us. i was a paratrooper and was wounded fighting commie scum for that i have a va pension which i paid for with blood and you erney.your union is run by commie traitors who will be out of business in 10yrs and you will be looking for a real job.commies can only destroy they can not creat prosperity only capitalism can do that.there has been no deregulation only more heaped on top of more regulation what do you think cause the affirmative action market melt down.try the community reinvestment act which is government interference in the market until the bubble burst.do some home work before you spout the party line you might learn something.
