Innocence or guilt can only be determined in a court of law. If there were charges filed against these men, then it needs to be settled in court.

Actually, there is no question that they were doing it. It was caught on camera and was a big news story on election day, I remember it clearly. They were standing outside a polling place holding night-sticks and claiming to be "security". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neGbKHyGuHU


Another report, made by a DEMOCRAT and former civil rights attorney, had one of the Black Panther members saying; "yeah, now you'll know what it's like to be ruled by a black man, cracker", as people were walking into the polling place.

I'd say the evidence is pretty cut and dry. :laugh:

So...I don't get it. How was that making anoybody do anything? So what if "scary looking guys" are standing outside a place to vote with billy clubs. It's like...a Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles. If I were going there to vote I wouldnt blink an eye, nor would I miss a beat in my walk going to vote for whoever I wanted to. I don't know what that kid with the camera looked like but I'll bet he was some small skinny white dude who would be scared of his own shadow anyway out with a camera looking for a story for his school paper that was due that Monday morning:laugh:
Now lwave me alone, I'm not coming into this section anymore :angry:

It's illegal, and it has been for a long time.

If two white guys stood outside a polling place in Alabama wearing white hoods, and carrying weapons, while telling black people McCain was going to be their white ruler, they would have been prosecuted, as they should be.

Same goes for these idiots.

You love the politics section, just admit it! :tongue0011:

What is illegal is voter intimidation, and that is a clear attempt. They did not need to be there.

They are dressed like militants! :laugh:

Seriously, how many brothers do you know wearing a friggin beret? :laugh:

It's not even so much about how they were dressed as why they were there. Why did they need to lie and say there were "security"? The only security at polling places are the local police, not those hoodlums. Plus they came right out and said they were member of the Black Panther party, which is a recognized hate group.

You don't see white hoods on the Music Awards, just Borat dressed like angel putting his bare butt in Eminem's face :laugh:

:laugh:

Yes I do, and they are perfectly straight after 3 and a half years of braces way back in high school. :D

Actually those braces sucked. I had a tooth grow in the roof of my mouth because a baby tooth had strong roots and never fell out. They had to cut out the baby tooth to make room for the other one. Then they used the braces to force my back teeth into place and after a while it all just fixed itself.

Anyways, yes, that the popular left-wing, liberal talking point, but it's not really accurate. There are plenty of examples of minorities being given unfair and undeserved advantages in some twisted attempts at "fairness."

When you go to apply for a job, especially jobs involving the state or county and they give you those silly tests. The test are ranked on ethnic background. Whites are given a harder test then the blacks, but the Hispanics get the easier of the tests.

Affirmative Action was needed in the 60's and 70's due to the long standing black vs white issues. I don't really see the need for it today.

Another thing with Affirmative action is it wasn't only driven by race. It was also a platform for women as well.

Depending on where you go, there are certain things employers will do. As a tradesman I have had to take a few tests to show I had knowledge on the area of my expertise.

One silly question was . "If your building a house with a floor dimension of 40x15, How many joist will be needed at 12" O.C with 16' joist." Feel free to answer it.

I agree, for racial issues, it just becomes reverse discrimination. Just like that case involving those white firefighters in New York.

I also remember the different physical fitness standards that they had for men and women in the Army.

Obviously men and women have different physical construction and men will always have an advantage when it comes to physical strength, speed and stamina (I'm not talking about endurance or pain tolerance, so don't rub that whole childbirth thing in our faces, ladies :tongue0011: ). That's the primary reason women are not allowed in combat positions. Now if a woman wants to serve in a combat role (for instance, Combat Infantry) then I have no problem with that.... as long as she can meet the male standards for physical fitness and weight, not just the female standards. I believe those standards exist for a reason, and we don't need to be getting our soldiers killed on the battlefield to appease some politically correct, Feminist mentality.

That's why I said 41. I was counting the outside joists. Basically starting at zero and going to 40, since they're one foot apart. Not sure why it's wrong though. Awaiting the explanation and easier version of the question.

Thats just the thing, thats how vague my version of the test was. The other versions stated to include the outer rim,

Anyways Mac says 39 without the Rim, and if you ad the rim you would need 2 more 16 footers for the back, 2 more 16 footers for the front, then another 16 footer would be cut in half to finish the front and back box, then you would need 2 more for the sides.

39 is right if you do not count the box

41 is wrong :tongue0011:
