Happy Parade Day!

We guess that they have the parades the weekend before St. Patrick's Day because everyone would be too tired (haha) to show up if they actually had it the weekend closer to the actual holiday. At least we guess that's the case. Here's a pic from the parade:

Someone please tell us he painted that on and he didn't just have a really bad cold? And what the hell is that in the background?

Sorry SCC. But I received this Email and it had no link. I am all for a white revolution. Im tired of paying for lazy useless people. And I use the term people loosely and with much uneasiness.
Great article please read on...

I don't know the man who wrote this, but I looked at his picture and read it with my mouth hanging open. He says things here that no white man could ever write and keep his job as a writer, and he speaks the truth.

Wednesday, September 21, 2005 -Moral poverty cost blacks in New Orleans - 1:00 a.m. Eastern

By Rev Jesse Lee Peterson

Say a hurricane is about to destroy the city you live in. Two questions:

What would you do?

What would you do if you were black?

Sadly, the two questions don't have the same answer.

To the first: Most of us would take our families out of that city quickly to protect them from danger. Then, able-bodied men would return to help others in need, as wives and others cared for children, elderly, infirm and the like.

For better or worse, Hurricane Katrina has told us the answer to the second question. If you're black and a hurricane is about to destroy your city, you'll probably wait for the government to save you.

This was not always the case. Prior to 40 years ago, such a pathetic performance by the black community in a time of crisis would have been inconceivable. The first response would have come from black men. They would take care of their families, bring them to safety, and then help the rest of the community. Then local government would come in.

No longer. When 75 percent of New Orleans residents had left the city, it was primarily immoral, welfare-pampered blacks that stayed behind and waited for the government to bail them out. This, as we know, did not turn out good results.

Enter Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan. Jackson and Farrakhan laid blame on "racist" President Bush. Farrakhan actually proposed the idea that the government blew up a levee so as to kill blacks and save whites. The two demanded massive governmental spending to rebuild New Orleans, above and beyond the federal government's proposed $60 billion. Not only that, these two were positioning themselves as the gatekeepers to supervise the dispersion of funds. Perfect: Two of the most dishonest elite blacks in America, "overseeing" billions of dollars. I wonder where that money will end up.

Of course, if these two were really serious about laying blame on government, they should blame the local one. Responsibility to perform legally and practically fell first on the mayor of New Orleans. We are now all familiar with Mayor Ray Nagin the black Democrat who likes to yell at President Bush for failing to do Nagin's job. The facts, unfortunately, do not support Nagin's wailing. As the Washington Times puts it, "recent reports show [Nagin] failed to follow through on his own city's emergency-response plan, which acknowledged that thousands of the city's poorest residents would have no way to evacuate the city."

One wonders how there was "no way" for these people to evacuate the city. We have photographic evidence telling us otherwise. You've probably seen it by now the photo showing 2,000 parked school buses, unused and underwater. How much planning does it require to put people on a bus and leave town, Mayor Nagin?

Instead of doing the obvious, Mayor Nagin (with no positive contribution from Democratic Gov. Kathleen Blanco, the other major leader vested with responsibility to address the hurricane disaster) loaded remaining New Orleans residents into the Superdome and the city's convention center. We know how that plan turned out.

About five years ago, in a debate before the National Association of Black Journalists, I stated that if whites were to just leave the United States and let blacks run the country, they would turn America into a ghetto within 10 years. The audience, shall we say, disagreed with me strongly. Now I have to disagree with me. I gave blacks too much credit. It took a mere three days for blacks to turn the Superdome and the convention center into ghettos, rampant with theft, rape and murder.

President Bush is not to blame for the rampant immorality of blacks. Had New Orleans' black community taken action, most would have been out of harm's way. But most were too lazy, immoral and trifling to do anything productive for themselves.

All Americans must tell blacks this truth. It was blacks' moral poverty not their material poverty that cost them dearly in New Orleans. Farrakhan, Jackson, and other race hustlers are to be repudiated for they will only perpetuate this problem by stirring up hatred and applauding moral corruption. New Orleans, to the extent it is to be rebuilt, should be remade into a dependency-free, morally strong city where corruption is opposed and success is applauded. Blacks are obligated to help themselves and not depend on the government to care for them. We are all obligated to tell them so.

I for once have earned these things which you provide for me. Chances are there will be a surplus galore at all of our welfare facilities.

2) DISTANCES BETWEEN THE SHOOTERS AND THE VICTIMS COUPLED WITH WOUND LOCATION INDICATES A .22 CAL PISTOL WOULD HAVE RENDERED THE SAME RESULTS. look at the flap on a box of any .22 LR ammo and it says "dangerous up to 1 1/2 mile". now this is not acurate distance but these assholes aren't really aiming.

if successfull, they would move on to the next weakest link.....semiauto's, handguns, high powered rifles, etc... you need only look to the U.K. for a preview of this incremental dissarmmament strategy.

What makes me sick is if a black male/female actually works hard, goes to college, and gets a good job, he/she is a sell out to the community. He/she is considered an Uncle Tom and is the “enemy” to all shitheads “keepn it real on the down low.” How sad!!! All of the black comedians always make fun of this, but Jessie “the King of Beers” Jackson lives off this stupidity of others in the ghetto. If you don’t know the “king of beers reference, I’m sorry I don’t have the time—look it up.

Why do you think there are hundreds of “Reverends” in the ghetto?? 011, 015, 007,006, etc… Because all of the money they receive from the kool aid drinking sheep who can’t think for themselves and need to be told what and how to think is tax free!!! That’s why when you run a Cadillac Fleetwood which is painted purple; it is registered to a Missionary Baptist Church. The weekly sermon: fuck the police, vote Dummycratic, and we need more free stuff.

Wow, you wanna run for mayor? You would have my vote. I know when I am driving around the fine streets of the "fine Englewood" community, you see the children running the streets rampadly and the momma all f'ed up either on the porch or passed out on the couch. Then they call you when he or she is 16 and complains how she don't wanna listen to me" Well let me see, maybe, just maybe, if you were a parent for the 1st 16 years, and didn't lay all the responsibility of the 12 other children on the older ones back, he or she might listen, might go to school, might not have a RAP sheet as thick as the unabridged Encyclopedia, might not have a drug problem, might not be ready to pump out the 2nd child, need I keep going?

Most prejudice comes as a hand-me-down, as it were; little kids just hear it from elders, and they accept it. Should something intolerant sneak through, gently work with your kids to understand that those ideas are not correct and that some people who are "older" just don't know better.

About 25 years ago, I went home with my white college roommate for the weekend. She lived in Crown Point, IN. Now I wasnt' too thrilled about spending the weekend in klan kountry, but, what the heck.

Her little neice and nephew came up to me, stared and then asked if they could touch me. I said sure. They were rubbing my hands and when I asked why they were doing that, they said they wanted to see if the color would come off. I almost fell off my chair, I was laughing so hard. My roommate was mortified. Turns out the kids had never seen a black person other than on TV.

They ment no harm. Both of them actually grew up to be really great people. It's all in the upbringing.

I remember someone saying "...judge a person by the quality of their character, not the color of their skin..." Ok, I think I'll stick with that. I'm an M-2, three of the absolute best cops I have ever had the honor of sitting next to in a squad were all "minorities". 2 were Black as the ace of spades, the last was as Mexican as they get! All three grew up in shitty areas of this city. I would take a round for any one of them, ate dinner at my family’s Christmas table with them! On the other hand, I remember locking up a white kid for dope who had a full ride to a top ten school, too bad J.R., was those 15 blows worth it? There is good and bad in every race! If you have some personal "hard on" for Blacks, Mexicans, Jews, Asians, Irish, German... Please, Please do us a favor and seek employment elsewhere. I can agree with the fact that some cultures today (i.e. Black and Mexican) glorify the "Thug Life" mentality, and yes, a ton of that comes from their so called family life, but to cast a blanket statement over all the people who live in a certain district is fucked up. Even to say a majority of the people in a district. Granted, most we (as police officers) come in contact with are the assholes of that district, however, there are a lot of individuals stuck in those shitholes that are as someone else said "prisoners in their homes" and trying to make a better life with the cards they were dealt.

The residents of Englewood will denouce gangs, drugs, violence etc. while constructing the shrine of cards, stuffed animals and empty liquor bottles. And I'll thank God that the savage black bastard doesn't live near my family.
