Good morning, gentle people – well, I’ve been putting it off for a while, but there’s a stack of Freeper mental sludge drums with “taking their country back” stamped all over them. I’ve had Kibitzer and Adrastos put up some extra plastic sheets on the walls in case any of the toxic Freeper waste splashes out when we open them. (Looks like Dexter’s hobby room in there.)
Let’s crank up the blowers, suit up, and crack that airlock door, shall we?
First up – I think we have the Freeper “We’re not racists” thing in its true perspective, because nothing says tolerance and inclusion like wanting to shoot someone with the wrong skin colour because you don’t like the way they dress.

Incensed when two teenagers ignored his demands to pull up their saggy pants, a Memphis man allegedly shot one of the youths in the back, according to police.
Kenneth Bonds was arrested Saturday night and charged with two counts of aggravated assault and jailed on $25,000 bond. Bonds, 45, is pictured in the mug shot at right.
Investigators contend that Bonds admitted to shooting Cameron Tucker, 17, following a September 25 argument on a Memphis sidewalk. The teenager was accompanied by Isaac Taylor, a 16-year-old friend.
Tucker told cops that he and Taylor were walking to a candy store when Bonds “began yelling at them to pull their pants up,” according to a Memphis Police Department arrest warrant affidavit. “Bonds got angry when Tucker and Taylor refused and that’s when the three got into a heated argument,” reported police.
At that point, Bonds allegedly pulled out a pistol and fired a shot at the older boy. The shot missed, but as the boys fled, Bonds continued firing at them. One bullet hit the 17-year-old in the buttocks and exited through his thigh (the boy was treated for the wound at two different hospitals).
A witness, Percy Chalmers, told cops that he saw Bonds “pull a large black semi auto handgun from his waist band” and fire several shots. Both Tucker and Taylor were able to identify Bonds in a photo spread prepared by Memphis police.
When contacted by phone, Bonds reportedly “admitted to shooting Cameron Tucker after an argument,” according to the police affidavit. Bonds was scheduled to be arraigned this morning on the felony counts.
I’ve wanted to handle droopy drawer situations this way.
I’ve started telling my daughter’s friends that this is how gays in prison advertise.
Heehee. If you’re going to get arrested, get arrested for doing what everyone else is secretly longing to do.
They actually wear a “normal” pair of underwear. The boxers that you see hanging out are actually an accoutrement to the whole “ensemble.”
I’ve spoken to some of the “men” at the company next door to us, and they explained this to me as simply a social fashion statement. Perhaps I’m white
Okay, if he shot the kid in the butt, how come the kid didn’t fall over dead from brain damage?
This is just wrong and unacceptable… but I’ll bet that young feller
“Young feller”? What’s the matter, gramps – couldn’t spell “whippersnapper”?
.pulls up his shorts next time someone tells him to.
They look like they were dressed by a monkey. Oh wait …
My old man used to always have a few 12 g shells around that he had removed the buckshot from.
And replaced them with rock salt…
There wasn’t too many stray dogs or coons around our house!
“Don’t forgret when young urbanites were wearing stocking on their heads.”
Ah the negro turban. Whenever I don’t think I will get assaulted for it, I like to refer to the silly getups as costumes.
I gave up on grumpy.
Now I just go straight to icy cold and venomous.
That’s the beauty of this story. It’s beautiful.We can laugh and discuss it because the hero of the story is — quite decidedly black himself.
The racists are flummoxed…

Tomorrow, a bank — not your bank, but any bank — could evict you from your home. Even if you didn’t know the bank was foreclosing. Even if your mortgage is paid off. Even if you never had a mortgage. Even if the bank doesn’t hold a single piece of paper that you signed. And major banks not only know this fact, but have spent millions of dollars to defend it in court. Why? The answer starts with a Jacksonville homeowner named Patrick Jeffs.
In 2007, Deutsche Bank sued Jeffs for his home, which is a necessary step in the process of foreclosing on a homeowner in the state of Florida. Curiously, despite the fact that he immediately hired a law firm to defend his property when he found out about the foreclosure, neither Jeffs nor his attorneys were at the trial. That’s because it had already happened. Deutsche won by default because Jeffs wasn’t able to travel backwards in time to attend, even though the trial featured a signed affidavit indicating that he had been served his court summons.
It’s regrettable, but this exception should not be used as the basis of horrible policy. If technicalities are allowed to prohibit secured lenders from exercising their remedies, out financial system and economy will be left in smoking ruins. Hate the evil bankers all you want but don’t bite your nose off to spite your face. Our political class and attorneys general are playing with fire. Let’s hope they don’t burn down our lovely country for rank political purposes.
So lets recap..banks are forced to take risky mortgages, ordered by the federal govt, even people on welfare can get them, then insured by the federal govt, and then when the wall comes tumbling down its the bank’s fault. Yes, Toto, theres no place like home.
Only in America! Interest only loans, ARM’s, No Document loans, and making sure that there is no credit history left behind, to stop these loans, and look what we have.
People in over their heads, people with nothing to lose because they put nothing down, or very little, and a bunch of banks about to be taken over or go under, by the same govt that caused it all.
Makes you wonder with home prices falling so low why everyone doesn’t have a home in this wonderful environment! Affordable housing for all!
The banks don’t want these homes, they want their money!
Did any banks protest? I was under the impression that that the banks favored the policy and perhaps had authored it themselves.
Bankers compose most of the country’s billionaires. Are not the banks heavily represented among political campaign contributors?
BULL! IF this actually happened in the way this reporter describes it, it would represent a one in a million shot, not the norm. I wonder if the Daily Caller has published any articles questioning the activities of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, strong-arming banks and attacking house witnesses who had the gall to report just how BROKE Fannie and Freddie were?
Time for all this “too big to fail” nonsense to go by the wayside. Let them fail. We’ll pick up the pieces and start over if we have to, but the present system of banks filing fake foreclosures because they lost paperwork for one house, and then forged it for another, has to stop.
Please educate yourself about how difficult “picking up the pieces and starting over” will be before you make these sorts of statements. What you propose will make the Great Depression look like lounging around the pool at the Four Seasons with an unlimited expense account.
There is no doubt some example of fraud out there. But I’ve yet to seen one posted where the supposed victim didn’t lawfully sign mortgage papers, take money from a bank, and later not pay back all the money they had borrowed.
The banks may well be committing fraud to recover their money, and if so, they should be charged and convicted. But this argument sometimes sounds like feeling sorry for the bank robber because after he robbed the bank, the bank illegally gave the police access to bank records which allowed him to be caught.
You must be insane. Who was he supposed to make payments to and why should he move out when he still owns the house?

Campbell soups of Canada are now offering hallal foods to Moslem customers. Don’t the Moslems offer a prayer to allah when they slaughter the animal? If this is so it is meat that has been sacrificed to idols which is against the Christian religion. I am sure that someone can quote the chapter and verse on this.
From the Muslims — submit to Islam or die.
TO the Muslims — give up Islamic world conquest or die!
Allah is not a god … it is a creation of a Psychopathic Pedophile.
No more campbells in my house again.
Campbells also makes V8 Splash smoothies.
Snip: Our aim is to make it fun and easy to find mosques, halal outlets and Islamic schools.
According to an article by Erik Sass in the Dec. 24 edition of the Media Daily News, Campbell’s Soup will not remain neutral in the culture war.The Media Daily News reports that Campbell’s will continue to support homosexual publications pushing the homosexual agenda and same-sex marriage with advertising dollars. AFA had asked the company to remain neutral in the culture war.

In trying to understand how so many Americans adore people like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh I have come to this critical understanding: Poorly educated, terribly informed, intellectually deficient and downright stupid people need idols. They feel angry, frustrated, ignored, cheated and disillusioned by so much going on in American society. They find the emotional, political and philosophical rants by talk show, loud mouth celebrities matching and justifying their feelings. Of course, those celebrities work hard to fan the flames of all that unhappiness and discontent, and also perpetuate ignorance. They sell stupidity to gullible dummies, teaching them who to blame for their misery.
I am no conservative or liberal and I know I sound terribly condescending and will be viewed as an elitist by those dummies, not that they read much by those they do not idolize. However, I have spent considerable time following what these demon idols say and write to seriously investigate whether I might be missing something of value. But all I see are huge quantities of totally incorrect and distorted information, absolute nonsense, outright insanity, abuse of logic, exaggerations, toxic half truths, intentional disinformation, racism and bigotry, and extreme political views that have no connection to reality and offer no workable solutions to the nation’s complex problems. Slick sound-bite slogans push propaganda substitutes for verifiable facts.
How to understand how so many people can listen to such celebrities and not feel as nauseous as I and so many other Americans feel when listening to them? Clearly we must accept the disturbing fact that there are many millions of suffering Americans that are mental midgets, a sign of the dumbing-down of America. No surprise really when you remember there are millions of people wasting their money on gambling, lottery tickets, cons and scams, junk products and unhealthy foods, or unable to qualify for decent jobs because of a lack of knowledge and skills. Either they were born stupid (a harsh but true statistical reality) or the many ups and downs of life have robbed them of any critical thinking ability to see through the idiocy that these purveyors of poison peddle while making obscene millions of dollars.
Consider recent Pew Center Research poll results that showed 18 percent of Republicans do not know that the Democrats control the House of Representatives and 35 percent do not know who the Vice President is. Research has found Fox News butchers facts and its devotees are the most ignorant, and in recent years Republicans have overwhelmingly gone to Fox to get their news and information. Note: 80 percent who regularly listen to Rush Limbaugh or watch Sean Hannity are conservative. I’m not saying that “No truth, just spin” should be the Fox motto, but it sure fits.
I can easily relate to the many people treated unfairly, unjustly and even brutally by the political and economic system. But those who have drifted over to the dark side of the right-wing, conservative arena and become addicted to the rhetoric of delusion have nothing in common with those that once made the United States a noble nation worthy of respect. Their idols talk a lot about the Founders and Constitution, but share none of the fine qualities of those that created our republic. They also pick and choose what parts of the Constitution to adore, mocking the rule of law.
As an independent, I too am extremely critical of the political and economic system and how the middle class has been purposefully harmed by a rich and powerful Upper Class that has turned the nation into a plutocracy serving the greed of individuals and corporations. I want revolution and true reforms. I condemn both major political parties and see elections as useless anachronisms.
I too feel disenfranchised, full of dissent and disgust with broken government, broken educational and health care systems, crumbling inadequate infrastructure, widespread corruption and dishonesty, and an economy dispensing inequality and injustice. Yet, try as I have, I cannot see any merit in what these powerful right-wing demigods dish out, all done to pump millions of dollars into their pockets and pump up their egos. They sell themselves as the defenders of the downtrodden and abused, but this is just a con game designed to keep millions of dollars coming to them and their fellow fat cats. When their supporters vote for Republicans they vote against their own economic interests, unless they are rich.
These false populists are fundamentally no different than the evil elite forces that this fraction of the population despises. Perversely, they have become a part of the ruling class they routinely condemn. They are the worst kind of idols, manipulating and soaking their audiences and admirers. They pitch poisonous and addicting fast food rhetoric, words as pleasing as salt, sugar and fat laden foods and as eagerly gulped down. This results in mental capacity becoming as clogged as the arteries in overweight and obese Americans.
What is evil? Right-wing hypocritical hucksters pitching messages of values, morals, freedom and patriotism crafted to sucker the least informed, emotionally stressed and unintelligent Americans for the sake of power and money. These idols live like royalty (for example, Limbaugh makes $60 million a year and Beck $35 million) while their loyal fans treasure fantasy expectations and block out information that would cause too much pain by piercing the delusions they have succumbed to. By putting their faith in false idols they become unknowing victims of the media corpocracy profiting from these idols.
And then he stuck out his tongue and mooned us.
No, that would be the democRATS as pumped up by the MSM.
Huh? I would love to see the poll he is citing. I don’t believe this at all
