The Heels eeked that one out over Ohio U. That should never have been that close. If they don't get Kendall Marshall back for the Kansas game they'll be on a plane bakc to Chapel Hiil. I forgot how many turnovers they had.
The NC State Wusspack is gone so the Heels are the only NC team left.

You had to know Jesse Jackson would HAVE to get his face in the fray regarding the Trayvon Martin case.

I think blacks are under attack, by other blacks.
If more end up in prison, I'd say it's because there are to many daddies not taking responsibility for their babies. Think Jackson would have anything to say on that score?
Submitted by Cool Arrow on Sat, 03/24/2012 - 1:09pm.
Jackson is still all butthurt that his most recent baby-momma didn't obey his demand that she have yet another abortion.
Then Jackson got caught paying off the baby-momma with Rainbow Push money.
It's getting so a race huckster can't even control his woman. Sarc.

Apparently Jackson needs to buy a copy of that book of marital advice you linked on another thread. He's as much of a muslim as he is a Christian.
Submitted by Seashell on Sat, 03/24/2012 - 1:29pm.
What floored me was this said by Jackson:
Jackson said that there is a mistaken assumption in some corners of America that all racial problems went away with the election of President Obama. "There was this feeling that we were kind of beyond racism," he said. "That's not true. His victory has triggered tremendous backlash."
So now we're told that the election of "The One" has done nothing to help heal racism in this country, in fact, it has made it worse????? WTH?
Submitted by Radical1979 on Sat, 03/24/2012 - 1:36pm.
Some of us knew right away Obama's election made racism worse. The Black Panthers at the Philadelphia poling place was kind of a hint. Then there was the cop who arrested Gates who was said to have "acted stupidly" when BO didn't have the facts, there was the black woman showing up for her Obama money...
Jesse, we knew BO's election would only increase racism.
Submitted by Seashell on Sat, 03/24/2012 - 1:50pm.
but we were told that with the election of Obama all ills would be cured. Yes we knew, and I find it funny that the likes of Jackson is admitting it now.
I think that statement from Jackson could perhaps come back to bite Obama in the fall.

Tim Tebow Sandwich Coming To Carnegie Deli

I hope that is one hell on a sandwich!
All that's pretty cool I guess, but I just hope that Tim keeps a low profile and sticks to practicing football and seeing kids. Being in NY is going to be a culture shock for him in ways. Just hope he stays grounded. I think he will!! I for one can't wait for fall to watch how Ryan plays him. I have a feeling Tim will be out there a lot! Hope so.

Have you been reading the stories about the redrawning of the NC/SC line? There is a guy that runs a little store just indise the SC line. Under the new boundry he will be in NC. He can't sell fireworks and gas is 30 cents higher. They should leave this alone. The boundary has been there for 100s of years. This is one of the dumbest things I've heard a government do.
Submitted by Radical1979 on Sat, 03/24/2012 - 3:10pm.
Careful, someone else in government might try to do outdo that stupidity. I have nO other explanation for the continuing stupidity of government other than its some kind of contest.

>>> former governor of GA, when the feds wrote a report saying that the Georgia prison system had a lot of crime inside the prisons, Lester said, "Yes, and we will continue to have crime inside our prisons until we get a better grade of prisoner."
Unfortunately, Rad, we will continue to get stupid crap from our government until we get less stupid elected officials and government employees working for us.
Good old NC elected the dumbest bunny in the hutch when they selected Dumplin' last election, but rumor has it she is a lot of fun after the lights go out around the capitol. I guess I can't knock her too much. It got Bubba Clinton all the way to the White House.

I was reading the local little mullet wrapper this a.m.
Seems the Feds are requiring ALL pool owners in multiple dwellings (apartments, hotels, etc.) to have mechanized pool lifts for the handicapped installed.....for each pool, hot tub, whirlpool, etc.
Because you know, little kids won't play on the pool lifts that won't be used, like that.
This is worse than the light bulbs, truly. Government needs to get out of our business.

Yes, I have some family w/a place on Lake Wylie and they (while they won't be affected directly) are in an uproar about it.

No offense, but those people aren't interested in being Tarheels! :)

Read this morning that some guy shot four people in Durham, NC yesterday, killing two and putting the others in the hospital.
When are the Justice Brothers, Jackson and Sharpton, coming to Durham to protest that action? FYI, No white Duke lacrosse players, or black stripper baby-mommas were involved. Maybe it doesn't qualify?
Also, yesterday in good old Durham, NC, some wheelchair-bound kid was raising money so his wheelchair basketball team could bring their players to his elementary school for a game. Some citizen came along and stole his money bucket with the $250+ he had raised, and got away because the kid couldn't chase after him.
Maybe the Justice Brothers and the ADA activists can collaborate on demonstrations for those victims?
Yeah, Durham is such a diversely "rich" city. What was it? Oh they just had their SECOND DA in a row busted in court and kicked out of office. Sounds like a place just crying out for a Sharpton/Jackson solution.
BTW, I caught Sharpton's speech stirring up the FL crowds where he said: "Do dey thank we stoopid? Do dey thank we ig'nant?"
Al, don't know about anyone else in the crowd, but you answered your own question about yourself.
Submitted by ricklail on Sat, 03/24/2012 - 2:40pm.
I think it was black on black crime. That never brings out the race pimps. You hear people like Alan West crying out over things like this but the Unreverend Al nor Jesse will touch it. I think I heard David Webb commenting on the real issues in the black community that those two race whores will never touch.
Submitted by Newsbubba on Sat, 03/24/2012 - 3:46pm.
The shootings were, but the kid in the wheelchair was white, and i won't mention that the guy who robbed him was black, because that might make me a racist. S you didn't hear it from me, bro.
To tell the truth, I'm not sure all the shooting victims were also black, since the paper never says anything that might imply that a black male would EVER shoot a non-black person. (see how sensitive I can be?)
Submitted by ricklail on Sun, 03/25/2012 - 1:00pm.
i assumed that because Durham is has a high population of blacks. I think it is the highest per capita in NC.
Submitted by Newsbubba on Sat, 03/24/2012 - 4:23pm.
Here is my guess as to what the old RBFSOB is up to.
Carpe diem. Bambi is going to seize the day, and this shooting in FL may be his trigger.
Not long ago, the Congress, in their infinite wisdom, passed a provision in the National Defense Act that allows the indefinite detention of American citizens, no charges, no nothing. Ain't that a peach?
About a month ago, old Bambi wrote hisself a "Presidential decree" that says in case of war, or in time of peace if he, him, hisself, considers something a national emergency, he, him, hisself can nationalize all strategic industry and businesses. Of course he, him, hisself can say it is an emergency, and which businesses are strategic, and when he wants to do it! Congress and the Supreme Court can't say Shiite. Now that is really a peach, ain't it?
So here comes the FL shooting. He's got the Justice Brothers, the NAACP, the Nation of Islam, the Black Panthers, and every other bunch of thugs at his disposal stirring the pot for revenge, and payback to whitey. It will blow up, and soon, and the MSM is just adding heat to the stew with their coverage. This will not end nicely.
When the race wars start, and the cities are burning, our savior, DA ONE will step forward and declare that this is a peacetime "National Emergency," and we will be right where Nazi Germany was when Hitler took over.
He can seize any business or industry he please, nationalize the states' National Guard, mobilize the military against American citizens, and lock up anybody's ass he pleases, and keep them locked up as long as he pleases, and it will all be legal.
Oh, oh, oh! The best part is, since he will be dealing with a National Emergency, he can just delay the 2012 elections until he decides that the emergency is over.
Want to bet when that will be?!? Anybody?

ADA, list of crap.
Low flow toilets, faucets, shower heads....
Ethanol in fuel, that rots all rubber parts in fuel systems, from boats to old cars to weed eaters.
So it looks like that Contract law argument is one tired old Freedom loving antiquated law that will be going poof.
You see nothing is a right anymore, just a bunch of privileges (like driving, living in a house, riding a bike, taking a crap) rules rules ,all stuck together.
It will be so much easier to apply health care if one is warehoused in a jail.
I do like her argument tho, like maybe the Supreme Court may side with her.
I sure hope so, just doing my part and tiring to be optimistic... :-)
Submitted by bkeyser on Sun, 03/25/2012 - 6:22pm.
with the only difference being that you can choose not to ride a bike; forgo the insurance payoff if your home goes up in flames; it's hard to get around ADA -believe me- but you don't have to renovate; and stinky isn't so bad, just ask OWS; etc. Democrats in this case want you to have insurance or... not breathe. LOL
Any time I see the media trying really hard to effect an outcome, I'm pretty sure they've got grave doubt it'll go their way. Re: the 2012 general election, and, Obamacare. My prediction: 6-3 it goes down with only women voting for it. New democratic/media narrative: "men wage war on health".
