I see that @collioure .deleted his racist post.
Well, copy/paste is my freind, so here it is again for your enjoyment.
...and it is balls out racist:
They are better off in the USA in than any of those African dictatorships, but they ought to be much better off in the USA than they are. Don't seem to be doing very well in Barry's sluggish economy, do they?
And then there are his efforts to close the charter schools they prefer and end the voucher programs they crave.

Oh, jeezuz, @collioure, you are one effing idiot. You've blown any deniability on race:
The one person perfectly positioned to heal the racial divide has exacerbated it and divided the country as well.
Proving once again that with liberals it's always someone else's fault.
Collie and Terry - read and understand.
We're tryna make our kids soooo dumb.
OT, but we're getting up to another 6 inches of snow, freezing rain tonight. I curse the weather gods.
@sacredh 68 today, 75 tomorrow, 80s the rest of the week.
I had to get the 4WD pointed down the driveway to make sure I could get out of my driveway in the morning.
@nflfoghorn, I can not only wear a hoodie up here without getting shot, I can wear a ski-mask too. So take THAT!!!
Oh, shut up!
Yer in Floda. You don't count! :) :)
@fitty_three, everyone at work is getting pretty testy. One of the guys asked me today what I'd do if he nailed me with a snowball. He was holding one in his hand. I told him I'd burn his house down with him in it and then I walked away. He dropped the snowball.
These two comments are far too precious to poff.
Seriously, I guarantee you that these will appear tomorrow in the MMR.
I've saved it.
You are one serious case of, well...
And you're unremarkably blind to the widespread hate based industries spawned be FOX's agitprop over Trayvon's death.
Oh, excuuuuuse me!
I'm a racist for pointing that out, huh?
I see that you haven't been able to separate something that is obviously true (his son probably would look like Trayvon) from FOX's obvious attempts to publicly tar and feather Obama.
Neocons like yourself have tried to make Obama a savior, then subsequently tear him down. Forty-three other presidents couldn't address the racial divide either. The blah one, however, has the extra burden to be SuperNegro - rescuer of ALL Americans!
You didn't read my post. So you chose not to understand.
And you're being deliberately obtuse to boot.
I urge you to listen to the podcast. The people interviewed don't sound AA to me.
@nflfoghorn, I was at the store a couple of days ago and a black guy behind me said he hated that white stuff (it was snowing). I said I was so sick of white that I was starting to hate white people too just because they were white. We had a good laugh.
Copy that, Jacksonville;-)
@nflfoghorn, you'd think that with that many shots getting fired up, at least ONE player on defense would at least accidentally get his hand between the ball and the rim!
@nflfoghorn, not ONE block on either side in the whole game. Unreal.
@nflfoghorn, the east was down 17 in the third when I went to bed.
@nflfoghorn, the west had won the last three and I thought they'd kill the east this year.
@nflfoghorn, let me tell you how bad things are going before I hit the shower. I've been setting a friend up with small bets I think I'll lose because I want to nail him with a couple of big ones in November. I bet him him on the NBA All-Star game last night. I gave him the west and 4 points. He owes me $25. I can't even lose the bets I want to.
@nflfoghorn, what are they? The roads have been so bad that even they're staying out of sight.
@nflfoghorn, we inherited our son's friends. They're shameless.
@fitty_three, me too. I'm going to take a shower and watch a movie before I go to sleep.
That's enough for me. It's time I sign off;`)
@fitty_three, you're not fooling me. It's one of those gay dragon queens.
It's kinda like a horse, except that it breaths fire!
@sacredh @nflfoghorn Automobiles are of the debbil ; )
And you haveta put this firewater in it to keep it moving.
@nflfoghorn, I want more info on this devilish contraption.
@fitty_three, if I saw a unicorn now, I'd pull a Voldemort and drink it's blood. I need SUNSHINE!!!!
Good weather. I guess that you get rainbows and unicorns use those as bridges.
@fitty_three, by good stuff, do you mean the ice mixed in with the snow or the unicorns and rainbows?
When is the good stuff coming? Is the Incompetent Community Organizer lying again?
@fitty_three, I really wish you could send us some too. It's starting to snow again and we're in for a bad one tonight.
I really wish I could send you some if this sunshine. It's three something pm and we have sunshine and 50 degrees.
There's another storm on the way, though.
@fitty_three, everyone is worn out. We're still joking with each other, but there's an edge to it now that wasn't there just a couple of months ago. This has been the never-ending winter of our discontent.
I take it that you didn't go tell Obama to fix it like they assumed you would, right?
