Folks, if George Zimmerman had of been black, or Treyvon Martin had of been white, we wouldn’t have this problem.
First of all because the shooting wouldn’t have happened in the first place, and second because all the blacks wouldn’t be on the warpath.
Oh, it was O.K. when O.J. got acquitted, but this is a horse of a different colour, or the pot calling the defendant black………, or at least shades of gray!
Yup, the blacks weren’t going to be happy with this verdict, and the whites wouldn’t be happy if the whole thing went the other way, so we got us a no-win situation kids.
Ain’t America grand?

New Jersey’s transit agency has removed a bus driver for committing a lewd act on the job.
A commuter videotaped 41-year-old George Simpson Jr. masturbating behind the wheel.
The video shows him maneuvering the bus through heavy traffic and the Lincoln Tunnel while pleasuring himself on June 24. The bus was traveling from Carteret to New York City.
New Jersey Transit police have charged Simpson with risking injury or damage by removing his hands from the wheel. He’s also accused of lewdness and reckless driving.
In a statement, NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. said the driver was immediately removed from service without pay because of “disturbing and grossly irresponsible conduct.”
drunk3Police didn’t list Simpson’s address, so he couldn’t be located for comment.
Your faithful reporter also tried to find a video of this incident, but none are available yet!
I hear they are going to charge him with “Whacking while driving!”
65-3ufUU_St_55Dave Matthews may jet to performances around the world, but that doesn’t mean his bicycle never breaks down.
That’s what happened before the singer’s show in Hershey on Saturday when one of his fans pulled over to give a stranded cyclist a ride and realized the hitchhiker was none other than Matthews, who didn’t have a cellphone on him.
Emily Kraus told WHP-TV in Harrisburg that that she and her boyfriend helped Matthews stow his bicycle on their bike rack and he got in their car for the rest of the ride.
“We didn’t know how to make conversation with him, in fact, so we were talking about his tour and where he had come from,” Kraus said.

Seems they have a law for everything in the states…….., and if they don’t they just make it up!
Driving_in_the_Monsoon_Rain_(8000987873)Missouri resident Michael Elli wanted to let others on the road know to slow down because they were about to drive into a speed trap, so he did what many kindhearted souls do: He flashed his headlights as a warning.
Police didn’t take at all kindly to warnings of this 21stcentury Paul Revere.  They flashed him a ticket of his very own for obstruction of justice.  Prosecutors eventually dropped the case, but Mr. Elli has now filed a class action lawsuitagainst the city because he says that the city retaliates against drivers who exercise their right to free speech–and that the government is trying to prevent it because it doesn’t like the message.
New research boosts the “use it or lose it” theory about brainpower and staying mentally sharp.
Seems people who delay retirement have less risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia, a study of nearly half a million people in France found.
Well folks, I gotta tell ya……………, your diligent reporter is in no danger of ever being able to afford retirement,  so it looks like I will stay mentally sharp well  into my nineties!

Jennifer Lopez Has Made $10 Million Performing For Dictators And Despots
Turns out that time Jennifer Lopez sang Happy Birthday to Turkmenistan dictator wasn’t a one-time thing because she’s been quietly collecting somewhere in the ballpark of $10 million by performing for some of the worst dictators and despots on the planet. Although, in her defense, warlords need QuinceaƱeras, too. Radar reports:
Now Human Rights Foundation president Thor Halvorssen is saying there were at least three previous such engagements, and that Lopez has been paid in the neighborhood of $10 [million] for “serenading dictators and crooks.”
Among them, Halvorssen said Lopez was paid $1 million by Uzbek industrialist Azam Aslamov to perform at his son’s wedding and $1.4 million to perform at the Moscow birthday bash of allegedly corrupt Russian businessman Telman Ismailov.
While I still maintain this is all part of a CIA operation, what’s the big deal if an entertainer wants to take money from international criminals and filter it back into the U.S. economy? We live in a country where terrible acts like Grown Ups 2 profit the entertainment industry every day. How clean are our hands really?
