Zimmerman verdict “protest” in L.A. becomes violent riot

Booker T. WashingtonBooker T. Washington (1856–1915), born into slavery, was an educator, author, orator, and adviser to U.S. presidents.

I came across this piece of disturbing news while trawling the net this morning. Sorry it’s a month late. But it’s important, because it’s more evidence that the whole Trayvon-Zimmerman incident is being used by black racists for their own agenda. This is just one of many such Zimmerman-riot incidents.

And why haven’t we seen this on the alphabet TV network news? Oh, I forgot. They’re the State Controlled Media.

InvestorPlace, and Los Angeles Times report that on the night of Monday, July 16, 2013, a “protest” over the preceding Friday’s “not guilty” verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman (for second-degree murder and manslaughter in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin) turned violent in Los Angeles, leaving a Walmart store damaged.

The “protest” began peacefully in the city’s Leimert Park, but soon degenerated into violence. According to an account in the Los Angeles Times, “hundreds of protesters” splintered off from the peaceful demonstration and began stomping on vehicles and breaking windows in the area.

The group roamed Crenshaw Boulevard and neighboring streets breaking windows, setting fires and attacking several people. Among those attacked were television reporter Dave Bryan and his cameraman, both of whom work for KCBS Channel 2 and KCAL Channel 9. According to police Lt. Andy Neiman, one of them was taken to a hospital with a possible concussion.

About 350 LAPD officers were dispatched to the Crenshaw area.

Shoppers said the “protesters” threw merchandise on the floor, screaming. Some tried to break open the jewelry glass displays.

A short while later, LAPD officers in riot gear swarmed the store as others marched through the parking lot. Fourteen people were arrested.

At a late-night news conference, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti blamed the violence on a “a small group” that “has taken advantage of this situation” — as if that makes it okay.

1479196_ME_protest_RCGThe old white guy is Jim Lafferty of the Los Angeles Lawyers Guild. He’s admonishing an LAPD officer for “antagonizing protesters.”

Meanwhile, on the same night in Oakland, CA, about 370 miles north of L.A., hundreds of protesters stormed Interstate 880 near downtown, blocking traffic in the southbound and northbound lanes. The protesters were cleared from the freeway and made their way downtown. By late Monday night, multiple arrests had been made in the downtown area as officers from neighboring jurisdictions responded to the chaos, the Oakland Police Department said.

Now you know why nobody — not Congress, not the Supreme Court, neither the Democratic nor the Republican Party, not the media (not even Fox News) — will do anything about the POS’s many scandals, even less do anything about his fraudulent birth certificate and his other fraudulent IDs (such as his Connecticut-issued Social Security number).

That’s because Pres. Lucifer holds the trump card of all trump cards:

No recovery: U.S. personal income fell 3.5%

Obama media

Early this morning, I heard/saw it again — some chattering reporter on an alphabet TV network saying the words “the improved economy.”

For crying out loud.

Stop lying!

The economy is NOT improving!

FOTM has posted about America’s retail apocalypse — of major national retailers like J.C. Penney, Sears, and Best Buy cutting staff and closing stores, and Wal-Mart having the worst February sales in 7 years. Even Wall Street giant Morgan Stanley is cutting 1,600 employees, as revenue from trading and deal-making remains in the doldrums.

Now comes more dismal economic news from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis. In January 2013:

  • U.S. personal income decreased 3.5% ($505.5 billion), the biggest drop in personal income in 20 years.
  • That, in turn, led to a 4% decrease ($491.4 billion) in disposable personal income.
  • The decline in disposable personal income meant Americans had less money to buy goods, which accounts for why consumption increased by only 0.2% from December 2012.
  • The decline in disposable personal income also led to a decrease of personal saving rate to 2.4% — the lowest since November 2007.

.

In the words of Bloomberg economist Rich Yamarone: “Consumers can’t spend what they don’t have, and they don’t have much.”

Nor is America’s anemic economic performance confined to just the month of January 2013.

As measured by personal income, 2012 was worse than 2011. Whereas personal income increased 5.1% in 2011, personal income increased only 3.5% in 2012. The year 2013 promises to be even worse, with personal income decreasing by 3.5% in the first month of the year.

Wal-Mart vs. The Morons

Wal-Mart vs. The Morons

1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at WalMart Every
hour of every day.

2. This works out to $20,928 profit every
minute!

3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St.Patrick’s Day
(March 17th) than Target sells all year.

4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home
Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

5. Wal-Mart
employs 1.6 million people, is the world’s largest private employer, and most
speak English.

6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the
world.

7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in
mind they did this in only fifteen years.

8. During this same period, 31
big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

9. Wal-Mart now sells more food
than any other store in the world.

10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores

will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth’s population is approximately 6.5
Billion.)

12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a

You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the
ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart
to fix the economy.

This should be read and understood by all Americans
Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature
It is
now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:

a.. The U.S.
Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right
and it is broke.

b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have
had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.

c.. Fannie Mae was
established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is
broke.

d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get
it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to
“the poor” and they only want more.

e.. Medicare and Medicaid were
established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are
broke.

f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to
get it right and it is broke.

g.. The Department of Energy was created in
1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to
16,000
employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil
than everbefore. You had 32 years to get it right
and it is an abysmal
failure.

You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved
down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??
I know what’s wrong. We have lost our minds to “Political Correctness” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Someone please tell me what’swrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!! We’re “broke” & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,??????? In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey …And now Pakistan ……..previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS to say nothing about the handouts to ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!!
Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income receive no aid nor do they get any breaks
AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without ‘needed’ meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave ‘US’ the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn’t it?
What happened to the old rule, “Charity begins at home”? Another value we have discarded thanks to our elected officials… both parties!

99% of people won’t have the guts to forward this.
I’m one of the 1% — I Just Did

Stores friendly or hostile to Christmas

The first day of the Christmas shopping season, the day after Thanksgiving, is called Black Friday for a good reason. It’s the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit, or are “in the black“. Many retailers depend on Christmas sales for as much as one quarter of their annual revenue.

According to the National Retail Federation, Americans spent $563 billion in Christmas shopping in 2011. For 2012, that figure is expected to increase 4.1% to $586.1 billion.

Despite the importance of Christmas shopping to their profit margin and, in many cases, their very survival, increasing numbers of retail stores in America now refuse to say “Merry Christmas” or even recognize Christmas, out of “political correctness,” which is really just cowardice or worse.

At the same time, while dissing Christmas, these stores still want our hard-earned money! What hypocrisy.

It makes no sense for us to do our Christmas shopping in anti-Christmas stores because in so doing, we are simply aiding and abetting those who don’t even have that elemental ounce of courage to stand up for the truth.

For the simple truth is that every year, Americans go into a buying frenzy NOT because of the Jewish Hanukkah, NOT because of the entirely made-up black holiday called Kwanzaa, and NOT because of the wiccans’ Winter Solstice.

The simple truth is that every year, Americans go into a buying frenzy, buying hundreds of billions of dollars of stuff, because of CHRISTMAS.

The American Family Association has compiled a list of top retailers in accordance with whether and how they recognize Christmas. Use the list as your guide for your Christmas shopping!

Just remember: Shop in Blue and Green stores. Shun the Red stores!

Color Code:

BLUE: An AFA “5-Star” rated company that promotes and celebrates Christmas on an exceptional basis.
GREEN: Company uses the term “Christmas” on a regular basis, we consider that company Christmas-friendly.
YELLOW: Company refers to Christmas infrequently, or in a single advertising medium, but not in others.
RED: Company may use “Christmas” sparingly in a single or unique product description, but as a company, does not recognize it.

Warning: Older Men Scam. Hehehehehe.

Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven’t heard about it.
A ‘heads up’ for those men who may be regular customers at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Costco, BJ’s, and even Wal-Mart. This one caught me totally by surprise. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don’t be naive enough to think it couldn’t happen to you or your friends.

Here’s how the scam works:

Two nice-looking, college-aged girls will come over to your car or truck as you are packing your purchases into your vehicle. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts (It’s impossible not to look). When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say ‘No’ but instead ask for a ride to McDonald’s. You agree and they climb into the vehicle. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen August 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also September 1st & 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 22nd, and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of us older men. Warn your friends to be vigilant. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for$2.99 each. I found even cheaper ones at the dollar store and bought them out in three of their stores.
Also, you never get to eat at McDonald’s. I’ve already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth from Lowe’s, to Home Depot, to Costco, Etc.

Please, send this on to all the older men that you know and warn them to be on the lookout for this scam. (The best times are just before lunch and around 4:30 in the afternoon)

Husband Down.

A husband and wife are shopping in their local Wal-Mart.
The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart.
‘What do you think you’re doing?’ asks the wife.
‘They’re on sale, only $10 for 24 cans’ he replies.
‘Put them back, we can’t afford them’ demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping.
A few aisles further on along the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.
What do you think you’re doing?’ asks the husband.
‘It’s my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,’ replies the wife.
Her husband retorts: ‘So does 24 cans of Budweiser and it’s half the price.’

Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers

So, after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, I lasted less than a day…. About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, ugly, mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance. As I had been instructed, I said pleasantly: “Good morning and welcome to Wal-Mart. Nice children you have there. Are they twins?” The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say: “Hell no, they Ain’t twins. The oldest one’s 9, and the other one’s 7. Why the hell would you think they’re twins? Are you blind, or just stupid?” So I replied: ‘I’m neither blind nor stupid, Ma’am, I just couldn’t believe that anyone would have sex with you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.”
