    whats the matter Nancy? Now is it too close for comfort? :twisted:

    Nancy Pelosi Downplays Tax Return Demand

    Facing questions about why she and other top Congressional officials won’t release their tax returns, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) downplayed her previous demands for presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney to release his, calling the issue a distraction.

    As recently as Wednesday, Pelosi had strongly urged Romney to provide further disclosure of his tax returns. But today, while maintaining Romney should release more documents because of “custom” and “tradition,” Pelosi said the issue was trivial compared with economic issues.

  • Coffee Steve

    Hold on to your coffee mug!!!

    I’ll have my wife hold my mug I’ll hold my wife and….

    I’m stopping right there, Carolyn is in Pittsburg on a missions trip and we have the house alone soooooo…. :-)

  • Suikostinger

    Zimmerman should at least get involuntary manslaughter….just my 2 cents, 2nds degree murder is wayyy too much. But hey, at least he has no regrets whatsoever….I think that his lawyer taught him to say that for when the case goes to court.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Twana Brawley, the Duke lacrosse players, Brenie Goetz that is just to name a few.

    Don’t get my to wrong the black guy gets a bum steer from the justice system too, at times. Partly because of mistaken identity and being poor.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea about “mistaken identity.” The old they all look a like bigoted sterotype. The crime rate in some black neighborhoods is very high and the police are under pressure to nail someone.

  • memu15

    I purposely did not watch the Zimmerman interview and have not watched any of the replays. I am totally against lawyers letting their clients be interviewed before trial. One deviation from their statements to police can come back to haunt them. I guess I just truly believe that one is innocent until proven guilty. I don’t like to see anyone risk the possibility of incriminating himself before trial. I am waiting to see what comes out at the trial.

  • UpAndOver

    Gang murders in Chicago is just business as usual…

  • Coffee Steve on Mini Laptop

    Just heavy wind and lightning so far, no rain yet, but power is out, on my mini laptop so if my typing is too small, that is why :-)

    Pelosi – “we have to pass it, to find out what is in it”

    Reid – “next question”

    Lombardi – “what the hell is going on out there”

    Would you mind re-posting the last couple of messages? The font you’re using is too small to read.

    Iranian Missiles Infographics: Strait Hormuz

    The official Hizbullah website Moqawama, along with the Iranian weekly Panjereh, published an infographic titled “Hormoz [sic] Straits– A Choke Point In the Hand of the IRGC [Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps]

    The infographic simulates an attack on a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Strait of Hormuz using IRGC missiles, including the Nasr (3 ton cruise missile with anti-ship capabilities), Zafar (short range radar guided missile fired from swift watercraft),etc.



    Violence In Chicago So Out Of Control Farrakhan Called In To Keep The Peace

    The army of men, known as the Fruit of Islam, was responding to a call put out by Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan after last month’s tragic killing of 7-year-old Heaven Sutton on the West Side. Her murder is part of the unrelenting bloodshed plaguing Chicago this year, causing the murder rate to spike.

    It’s forced Farrakhan out of the luxury of the Nation’s palatial headquarters in Chicago and onto the street, leading 500 Fruit of Islam members out into Auburn-Gresham to help combat the violence.

    The 80-year-old leader walked with his followers, and took the lead in confronting an evil that is frustrating law enforcement, civil rights activists, clergy and residents


    Night all.

  • Coffee Steve


    LOL I wish I could find a way to resize the font on here, that would have been fun
