For those that feel that racism no longer exists in America.

A young man went to ‘Journey’s’ (shoe store) in Kansas City, MO. He bought a pair of shoes and then saw an identical pair at a different store for less. As such, he bought the identical shoes from the cheaper store and took back the original more pricey pair to Journey’s. Later on that night, as we has reviewing the receipt, he noticed that the reason for the return was ‘Dumb Nigger’. When he took the receipt back to the store, they didn’t even apologize but did admit that said ‘reason’ was in the system

Barack Obama gives his wife a “pound” and Fox News calls them terrorists.

If the Obamas are terrorists then most the Bush Klan are Satanists and devil worshippers.  See possible proof of their subtle evil beliefs below the coverage of the “terrorist fist jab”.

Just how unrealistic must Fox News be before people start to see they are a bunch of fear mongers intent on turning this beautiful world into a police state.  Why are they so afraid of anything non-blond and European?

Seriously folks, any self respecting American surely knows that this was the action performed by the “Wonder Twins” when about to transform into their task specific Super Identities.

Are the Bushes linked to Satanism?

What’s the matter with people?

Why don’t people understand what voting is all about?  I’ve been hearing more and more people say this or a variation of it, “I’m not voting for [insert candidate here] because I don’t think [insert candidate here] will win and I don’t want to waste my vote.”

What’s the matter with people?  Elections aren’t popularity contests!

The problem is that so many people pay too much attention to published polls that they forget the purpose of THEIR individual vote.  They feel that if a poll says that candidate X is ahead, then that candidate is the only viable one running.

NH is an example of the fallacy of that type of faulty thinking.  Obama was ahead in almost every poll yet he lost to Clinton.  This should be proof enough to explain it.

Has anyone else heard this mess?

Katrina victims swamp corps with trillions in claims

See the full story here Why don’t they just sue me instead.  I funded the Corps of Engineers with my tax dollars.  Or better yet, they should sue the dinosaurs that died and decomposed into fossil fuel that, after burning, feeds global warming.

WASHINGTON — Tens of thousands of people whose property was destroyed when Hurricane Katrina overwhelmed New Orleans’ protective levees have filed claims demanding the government pay astronomical sums that would be enough money to make multimillionaires of everyone in Louisiana.

The Army Corps of Engineers received 247 claims from residents, businesses and government agencies seeking $1 billion or more, according to the agency. That’s the tip of a very large iceberg: The corps, which designed and built the city’s storm protections, faces more than 489,000 claims for the damage and deaths in the post-Katrina flooding.

The claims are so massive the government could never hope to pay them. Rather, they are the hopeful — and at times inflated — requests of people reeling from losses.

Just the top filings add up to so much money that the entire annual output of the nation’s economy — $12 trillion — couldn’t pay them off, according to the corps’ listing. It is the first public accounting of the scale of damage demands the corps faces.

Hanging noose found at Columbia University

This is for those of you with innocent souls that continue to deny that racism is alive and well in the US.

Columbia University planned a town hall meeting Wednesday for faculty and students to discuss the discovery of a hangman’s noose on a black professor’s office door, an incident which the university’s president described as an assault on the entire university.

Police are investigating the incident, which was discovered Tuesday night, as a hate crime. The noose, an echo of other recent incidents involving the symbol reviled by many for its association with the lynchings of the Old South, was hung up on the door of a professor at the university’s Teacher’s College.

“This is an assault on African Americans and therefore it is an assault on every one of us. I know I speak on behalf of every member of our communities in condemning this horrible action,” Columbia President Lee Bollinger said Tuesday.

Columbia did not immediately say which professor was targeted, but she was identified in the local media as Madonna Constantine, a professor of psychology and education and author of a book entitled “Addressing Racism: Facilitating Cultural Competence in Mental Health and Educational Settings.”

A noose left hanging on the officer door of a respected African-American professor at Columbia University prompted students to stage a demonstration, chanting: “not in my school”.

University officials are stunned, to say the least. Officials plan a community meeting

to confront the issue. But students were already in action with protests.

Many at the school call the hanging noose—a cowardly act.

The noose was found by another professor, hanging on the office door of Dr. Madonna Constantine shortly before 10:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Dr. Constantine is a tenured professor at teachers college her specialties: psychology and multi-culturalism. Her work includes the book, “addressing racism.”

Police are also looking into whether the incident springs from a dispute between Constantine and another faculty member.

Student organizers are calling for a campus-wide student walkout at 2:00 this afternoon.

Suit: NBA Player Watching Porn, Drunk Before Crash

Now this was just plain stupid.
Dummy!  Keep both hands on the wheel!  No watching TV while you drive!  Shoot some people can’t even talk on a cell and drive. 

Claim Targets Minnesota Timberwolves’ Eddie Griffin

CBS) MINNEAPOLIS On March 30, Minnesota Timberwolves center Eddie Griffin was drunk and masturbating when he crashed his luxury SUV into a parked Suburban outside a store in Minneapolis, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday by the man whose Suburban was hit in the crash.

WCCO-TV obtained copies of 911 calls and store surveillance video of the incident, along with an accident report the police submitted to the state, reports WCCO-TV’s Caroline Lowe.

Several of the 911 callers that night said Griffin was drunk. One witness said Griffin told him he was watching pornography in a DVD player mounted on the dashboard of his Cadillac Escalade SUV when he struck a Chevy Suburban parked on University Avenue Southeast.

The location where Griffin crashed is located a couple miles from the Target Center where Griffin had played with his team several hours earlier.

Abed Hassuneh, who is the brother of the victim, said Griffin told him, “That he was masturbating himself going down that street. That’s how the accident happened because he was not paying attention. He’s paying attention to that video and all of a sudden he’s shoveled somebody’s car on the top of the sidewalk.”

Interim Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan ordered an internal affairs investigation of the conduct of the two officers who responded to the scene, after WCCO-TV made Dolan aware of allegations about the incident.

Key questions are why Griffin wasn’t tested for alcohol and why the officers drove him out of the city to his home in St. Paul. Griffin also received tickets for not having a license and inattentive driving.

Griffin’s damaged SUV was towed to the Minneapolis impound lot.

Dolan told WCCO-TV he expects impartial policing. Dolan also said officers must get permission to leave the city.

“Obviously, if somebody is drunk and they are driving we want that dealt with by the police officers of Minneapolis,” Dolan said.

In the video, Griffin can be heard pleading with witnesses to not call police saying, “I can’t go to jail.”

The video also shows Griffin admitting he is drunk and doesn’t have a driver’s license.

The video shows him struggling for minutes to put on his sweatshirt and offering to buy a car for the man who’s SUV he crashed into in front of Santana Foods.

Griffin was not available for comment. When he was interviewed by reporters after the crash happened, he said he had dropped his cell phone as he drove.

The two officers involved in the incident, Daniel Anderson and Matthew Lindquist, have been with the Minneapolis Police Department since October 2001. The officers remain on duty pending the outcome of the internal investigation.

Families are banned from living together in Missouri

So, what’s the deal? Which political party or religious group is behind this craziness?

BLACK JACK, Missouri (AP)—The City Council has rejected a measure allowing unmarried couples with multiple children to live together, and the mayor said those who fall into that category could soon face eviction.

Olivia Shelltrack and Fondrey Loving were denied an occupancy permit after moving into a home in this St. Louis suburb because they have three children and are not married.

The town’s Planning and Zoning Commission proposed a change in the law, but the measure was rejected Tuesday by the City Council in a 5-3 vote.

“I’m just shocked,” Shelltrack said. “I really thought this would all be over, and we could go on with our lives.”

The current ordinance prohibits more than three people from living together unless they are related by “blood, marriage or adoption.” The defeated measure would have changed the definition of a family to include unmarried couples with two or more children.

Mayor Norman McCourt declined to be interviewed but said in a statement that those who do not meet the town’s definition of family could soon face eviction.

Black Jack’s special counsel, Sheldon Stock, declined to say whether the city will seek to remove Loving and Shelltrack from their home.

The Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point, Ohio


With a record-breaking height of 420-feet and record-breaking speed of 120 mph, Top Thrill Dragster delivers on its promise of thrilling riders this summer at Cedar Point, Ohio.

The last picture says it all and is one of the reasons I don’t ride those crazy things.

Police Arrest Nude Man Stuck in Chimney

Now this is just stupid!

HAYWARD, Calif. — A man who spent five hours naked and stuck in the chimney of his stepmother’s home was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs, police said.

Police say Michael Urbano, 23, locked himself out of the house early Saturday morning and decided to get in on a cable TV wire through the chimney.

But the wire broke and Urbano fell, getting stuck about three-quarters of the way down. He was freed when a firefighter pushed him to safety.

“We get him up, and he’s naked as a jaybird,” said Hayward police Lt. Gary Branson. “He tells us he took his clothes off because there would be less friction going down the chute. We did find his clothes. So that part checked out.”

Authorities were called about 6:15 a.m. Saturday. A neighbor heard “faint, distressing” calls since about 2:30 a.m. and decided to call police.

Police say it probably wasn’t a comfortable few hours for Urbano.

“He’s not fat,” Branson said, “but he used to play football. He’s not that little.”

This isn’t the dumbest thing to come out of Texas, but it shore is close.

This is about the most stupid thing I’ve heard this week.  It ain’t surprising that it comes from Texas though.  It seems that if you have two drinks in less than an hour in Texas, you can be arrested and sent to jail.  Since drunkiness is defined as having a blood alcohol level of greater than .08 persent, if you have more than two drinks in an hour, then you are legally drunk.  If you are legally drunk, then you can go to jail.  Apparently.

This seems to be the work of some born-again drunk individual trying to cleanup his home state.

That calls for a drink.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters)—Texas has begun sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drinkers for being drunk, a spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said Wednesday.

The first sting operation was conducted recently in a Dallas suburb where agents infiltrated 36 bars and arrested 30 people for public intoxication, said the commission’s Carolyn Beck.

Being in a bar does not exempt one from the state laws against public drunkenness, Beck said.

The goal, she said, was to detain drunks before they leave a bar and go do something dangerous like drive a car.

“We feel that the only way we’re going to get at the drunk driving problem and the problem of people hurting each other while drunk is by crackdowns like this,” she said.

“There are a lot of dangerous and stupid things people do when they’re intoxicated, other than get behind the wheel of a car,” Beck said. “People walk out into traffic and get run over, people jump off of balconies trying to reach a swimming pool and miss.”

She said the sting operations would continue throughout the state.

The Dept of Homeland Security says that paying off your credit card bill is a crime!

Big Brother needs to learn some manners.  This Post 9/11 paranoia is out of hand.  Since when is paying off your credit card something that we need to ponder?  This is really stupid.  So, now I suppose the Fed. expects us all to carry over monthly balances if we can afford to pay it off.  I see how this plays right into the hands of bug business.  The more balances you carry month to month means the more interest you pay big banks.  The more taxes the banks pay and now suddenly the Fed has money to continue the War on Terror.  Does this make sense to anyone out there?

Who knew paying down your credit-card debt can set off an anti-terrorism alarm?
Walter Soehnge found out the hard way.
The Rhode Island retiree said that earlier this year he sent a $6,522 check to pay off a portion of his JCPenny Platinum MasterCard.
The payment was received by the credit-card issuer but his account wasn’t credited.
It took more than a week to set things straight.
Why? Soehnge says the bank told him the larger-than-normal payment apparently triggered a suspicious-activity flag on his account, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security had to be informed.

“It’s my money,” Soehnge, a retired school teacher, said yesterday. “This isn’t supposed to happen.”
But it can and does happen, according to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, part of the U.S. Department of Treasury.
After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Banking Secrecy Act was amended to force financial firms to come up with more stringent internal anti-money-laundering programs. Firms are given latitude to design their own software programs and formulas to detect what they suspect are “suspicious activities” within financial accounts.
“They make decisions based on their own risk assessments,” said Anne Marie Kelly, a Treasury spokeswoman. If financial institutions find what they think is suspicious activity, then they report it to the feds.
Kelly, who said she could not verify Soehnge’s particular claims, said similar incidents with people have happened in the past.
A spokeswoman for J.C. Penney Co. said the retailer and GE Consumer Finance, which owns J.C. Penney’s credit-card business, is investigating Soehnge’s apparent mishap.
“We’re trying to figure out why that happened,” said the spokeswoman.
Meanwhile, Soehnge wants answers.
“I’m not a reactionary or litigious person,” he said. “My goal is to raise awareness. . . . People need to know about who is intruding” in their affairs.

Former Top Bush Aide Accused stealing $5,000

This is pretty stupid!  Why didn’t Allen just ask for a position with Halliburton?  He could have gotten millions of dollars instead of the measly $5k that might send him to prison.

Washington Post
Claude A. Allen, who resigned last month as President Bush’s top domestic policy adviser, was arrested this week in Montgomery County for allegedly swindling Target and Hecht’s stores out of more than $5,000 in a refund scheme, police said.

Allen, 45, of Gaithersburg, has been released on his own recognizance and is awaiting trial on two charges, felony theft scheme and theft over $500, said Lt. Eric Burnett, a police spokesman. Each charge is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

Allen could not be reached for comment last night.

His attorney, Mallon Snyder, said last night that his client denies wrongdoing. The lawyer disputed the police account of Allen’s actions. “It’s his reputation. Obviously, he’s very concerned about it,” Snyder said.

Snyder said he feels confident that Allen will be able to prove that the incidents were “a series of misunderstandings.”

Allen, a former deputy secretary in the Department of Health and Human Services, was nominated in 2003 to a federal appeals court seat. He was appointed the president’s top domestic policy adviser last year at the start of Bush’s second term. That made him the highest-ranking African American on the White House staff.

Working out of a small office on the second floor of the West Wing, Allen shaped administration policy on such issues as health care, space exploration, housing and education.

He came to the attention of Montgomery police after a manager at a Gaithersburg Target store called the department about an incident Jan. 2. Montgomery detectives were able to document other alleged crimes from Oct. 29 to Jan. 2, some of which were captured on camera, Burnett said.

Allen resigned from the White House on Feb. 9, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family

In a statement that day, Bush said: “Claude is a good and compassionate man, and he has my deep respect and gratitude. I thank him for his many years of principled and dedicated service to our country.”

Burnett said Montgomery police contacted the White House to verify Allen’s identity after the Jan. 2 incident. He said that was the extent of their communication with the administration. He said he could not immediately determine the date of that contact, or whether police informed the White House that Allen had been charged Jan. 2 and was still under investigation.

White House spokesman Scott McClellan said last night that if the allegation is true, “no one would be more disappointed, shocked and outraged” than the president. McClellan said Allen had told White House Chief of Staff Andrew H. Card Jr. and White House counsel Harriet Miers that the matter was a misunderstanding.
