Skinny little white guy goes into an elevator, looks up and sees this HUGE Black guy standing next to him. The big guy sees the little guy staring at him Looks down and says: '7 feet tall, 350 pounds, 20 inch dick, 3 pound testicles, Turner Brown.' The little guy faints and falls to the floor.
The big guy kneels down and brings him to, shaking him. The big guy says: 'What's wrong with you?' In a weak voice the little guy says, 'What EXACTLY did you say to me?' The big dude says: 'I saw your curious look and figured I'd just give you the answers to the questions everyone always asks me..... I'm 7 feet tall, I weigh 350 pounds, I have a 20 inch dick, my testicles weigh 3 pounds each, and my name is Turner Brown.
The small guy says: Turner Brown! Sweet Jesus, I thought you said, Turn around!

Sometimes our Elected Officials feel they are above the law and can do what they want when they want. A perfect example is what Councilman Eric Ulrich did this Sunday in Richmond Hill. According to a local parade coordinator, Eric was invited to participate in a parade to honor the Indian community during their Phagwah Parade but ignored posted parking signs.
Phagwah, or Holi, is the Indo-Caribbean Hindu celebration of the New Year.
Every spring, the Sunday after the first full moon of the Hindu calendar, Phagwah literally paints the streets while children and families "color" one another with dye and powder to chase away the winter grays. The spirit--and high-jinks--is like that of Carnival.
Well Councilman Ulrich was taking part in the festivities and he thought he was above the law and parked his car illegally in an area that would disrupt the parade. I guess he thought that his Police Shield in his window would protect hit but according to witnesses it did not. As a result of his illegal parking, his car was appropriately towed.
Looks like Councilman Ulrich and his elected friends need to realize that just because they are elected they are not above the law!

I'm no detective nor am I an expert in plagiarizing, but the Obama logo and Monserrate campaign logo look eerily similar. What is even more suspect is the Monserrate campaign slogan, "Si Se puede" which when translated into English means Yes We Can! (sound familiar?)
If memory serves me correctly, I believe Barack Obama might have said those very same words one or twice.....
To his critics and especially to Barack Obama, Hiram Monserrate responded, “This logo is similar to the logo that they (Obama Camp) use but slightly different because the logo actually is a “Q” which stands for the great borough of Queens. If folks had really analyzed it, they would have seen it.”

Barack Obama and his Attorney General should really go back to third grade and study the US Constitution. Then maybe they will learn that the Constitution, the rights and protections are reserved for UNITED STATES CITIZENS! NOT ENEMY COMBATANTS!
Somebody should tell Che Obama that captured terrorists should be held in military detention centers and tried in military tribunals. Not in American Courts where lawyers work to find legal loopholes for foreign enemy combatants who kill Americans.
Reading Miranda Rights to Terrorists Is 'Crazy' and 'Stupid,' Say GOP Congressmen

(CNSNews.com) – The Justice Department confirmed last week that FBI agents in Afghanistan are reading Miranda warnings to suspected terrorists captured there, a practice that Republican congressmen this week branded as "crazy" and "stupid."
Miranda warnings were mandated by a U.S. Supreme Court decision that said domestic law enforcement agencies must inform criminal suspects arrested in the United States of their rights under the 5th Amendment.
"You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law," says the typical Miranda warning. "You have the right to an attorney present during questioning. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you. Do you understand these rights?"
The Obama administration's decision to make this statement to terror suspects captured on the battlefield in a foreign country has sparked outrage among several Republicans in Congress who spoke with CNSNews.com. It also contradicts what President Barack Obama said in March, when he indicated that Miranda rights did not apply to terror suspects captured overseas.
Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), as first reported in The Weekly Standard, said he was recently in Afghanistan and personally witnessed FBI agents reading the Miranda warning to captured combatants.
“I was a little surprised to find it taking place when I showed up because we hadn’t been briefed on it, I didn’t know about it,” said Rogers. “We’re still trying to get to the bottom of it, but it is clearly a part of this new global justice initiative.”
“Anytime that you offer confusion in that environment that’s already chaotic and confusing enough, you jeopardize a soldier’s life,” said Rogers.
On Capitol Hill, Rep. John Boozman (R-Ark.) agreed with Rogers and told CNSNews.com: “I think it’s the craziest idea I’ve ever heard in my life, and I think my constituents at home in Arkansas are beyond shock. There’s just no rhyme or reason for it -- it makes no sense at all. We have so many guys that are out there risking their lives, trying to do the best they can, and then to try to put this added burden on them at a time when you’re at war -- like I said it’s crazy. It’s beyond belief.”
Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) also disagreed with the policy of reading the Miranda warning to captured enemy fighters. “I think it’s a terrible, it’s a terrible idea. They’re not American citizens, for starters. They’re combating-foreigners that are against us in every way. They don’t even wear the uniform, most of them. They’re terrorists. And they should not have the same privileges as the citizens of the United States. That’s where I stand,” Johnson told CNSNews.com.
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) strongly disapproved of giving these rights to detainees saying, “I think it’s outrageous. They’re not criminal defendants, and if that’s the way this administration is heading, I think it’s a terrible direction.”
“They’re not criminal defendants, they’re enemies of war captured on the battlefield, and they need to be treated as such,” said McCaul. “What we’re doing is going back to the Clinton years and going through the courts and making criminal defendants, reading them Miranda rights, they’re asking for lawyers over in Afghanistan on the battlefield. … Whether they’re down in Guantanamo, I saw Khalid Sheik Mohammad down there. He’s an enemy of the United States, an enemy of war. And the idea of giving them Constitutional rights, bringing them into the United States and giving them Constitutional rights is just outrageous. To extend that to the battlefield now, where they’re being captured in a time of war, and force our soldiers to give them Miranda rights, we’ve never seen this in the history of this country, and it’s a bad, dangerous precedent to go down.”
Rep. John Carter (R-Texas), whose nickname on Capitol Hill is “Judge” for having served criminal district judge for 20 years prior to entering Congress, said that a terrorist act should be treated differently than a DUI.
“I spent 20 years as a criminal district judge, and I firmly believe that they [captured terrorists] are not entitled to have Miranda rights. Their rights are defined in other ways, they are not defined by our Constitution,” said Carter. “They are treating these people as if they are committing a crime inside the United States, and not as warriors against our soldiers,” Carter told CNSNews.com. “And yet they are warriors against our military.”
Rep. Robert A. Brady (D-Pa.) said he was not familiar with the new policy and therefore could not comment. “I haven’t seen that -- if I see it, I can comment on it, but I don’t know anything about it,” he told CNSNews.com.
President Barack Obama was interviewed on CBS’s 60 Minutes on March 22. During that interview he was asked about the captured terror suspects being held in Guantanamo Bay. Obama said: “The whole premise of Guantanamo, promoted by Vice President Cheney, was that somehow the American system of justice was not up to the task of dealing with these terrorists. I fundamentally disagree with that. Now, do these folks deserve Miranda rights? Do they deserve to be treated like a shoplifter down the block? Of course not.”

Scandal plagued Speaker Christine "Slush Fund" Quinn has took it upon herself on NY1to define who are the "real" irish folk. According to Quinn, only those who marched in the All inclusive St Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday are true Irish.
This was shocking news to the millions of Irish who did not march in all inclusive parade. Quinn believes that if you are religious and believe in God or support traditional marriage and family or oppose sodomy than you are NOT Irish.
I wonder if the hundreds of thousands of people who will attend the March 17th St. Patrick's Day Parade know that according to Christin Quinn, they are not Real Irish Folk!
Is Quinn really being all inclusive by excluding people from being irish if they do not conform to her beliefs?
Maybe Christine Quinn wants to expel all states from the Union who do not pass gay marriage legislation or deport Americans who oppose gay marriage!
Will Speaker Quinn next strip the title of New Yorker from residents who don't support her failed leadership?

It is good to be back in the United States! I just spent a month and half in Dubai assisting a friend who owns a construction company. The financial environment in Dubai is horrendous and all those rich Arab tycoons wrapped in traditional headscarves sipping fruit juice cocktails watching Russian models walk along the beach are fleeing the country.
A six-year boom that turned sand dunes into a glittering metropolis, creating the world's tallest building, its biggest shopping mall and, some say, a shrine to unbridled capitalism, is grinding to a halt. The real estate bubble that propelled the frenetic expansion of Dubai on the back of borrowed cash and speculative investment has burst.
Half of all the construction projects, totaling $582 billion have either been put on hold or cancelled, leaving a trail of half-built towers on the outskirts of the city stretching into the desert.
Local banks have stopped lending and the stock market has plunged 70%. Scrape beneath the surface of the fashion parades and VIP parties, and the evidence of economic slowdown are obvious. Luxury hotels are three-quarters empty. Shopkeepers in newly-built malls are reporting a drop in sales.
In Dubai you expect to see a Ferrari parked beside a Rolls-Royce. However now they are both equipped with scruffy For Sale signs taped to the windows.
It is good to be home!
