What Caused the Blackout in the "Chocolate City"???
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 2-4-2013 | MOTUS

Posted on 02/04/2013 9:06:44 AM PST by NOBO2012

Another Super Bowl in the can, and the official results are in. Beyoncé was hot, the commercials, not (with the exception of Chrysler’s odes to our military and farmers, butt they weren’t technically commercials). There was a delay of game penalty called due to a temporary brown-out in the Chocolate City. And, oh yes…the Ravens won!

So from the top: did you see Beyoncé shaking her considerable Behindce all over the half-time show?

Beyoncé the Super Knowles

No wonder she didn’t have time to practice for the inauguration and had to lipsync! Last night’s performance was not just live, butt live in hot black leather and lace! With matching hot black knee-high sock-boots. Lady M was mesmerized:

(snip)Big Guy tweeted too: an official game day picture of…his own hot self.

Butt back to Beyoncé; not only did she shake it all over the place, she reunited with her former Destiny’s Child partners.

While the Destiny chicks are hot too, I think you can see in this butt-to-butt playoff why – in the Age of JLo - Bey was the break-out star in that group.

Bey’s booty left the stage after its “electrifying” performance,

play got back underway, and out of nowhere ZAP! A power surge! And just like that, half the lights went out in the Super Dome. It was like Hurricane Katrina all over again: a bunch of antsy people crammed into the Super Dome and no power. Only who do we blame this time? George W. Bush?  Dick Cheney? Mayor Ray “the levees ain’t holdin” Nagin? Destiny?

The official explanation is as follows:

(snip)To make this the greenest Super Bowl, the New Orleans Host Committee has partnered with fans and the community to offset energy use across the major Super Bowl venues.

To wit: load management. Unfortunately one of their eco-friendly “load managing” “sensors” malfunctioned (as green energy things often do) and the next thing you know:

 

subperbowl

 

Half of the Super Dome went black. Is that racist? No. As I just explained, it was green.

I’ve tried to warn Big Guy about this before: green energy isn’t ready for prime time. Solar cells, windmills and battery powered electric cars all have a history of blowing up in your face.

 

Solyndra-auction2

huge, dangerous machines that produce negligible amounts of energy and are installed primarily for their propaganda value windmillchevy-volt-garage-sad-hill-news-1

 

And now this Super Bowl fiasco. Of course, there’s a chance I’m wrong and the blackout had nothing to do with New Orleans’ green energy policy. Maybe it was simply the result of bad business practices. The type of practices that result in the shoddy products and workmanship you get when you use  kickbacks, graft and corruption to determine who is awarded city contracts. You know, the kind of practices that resulted in the indictment of former Mayor Ray Nagin on 21 charges of corruption including wire fraud, bribery and money laundering?

Sheeze, bribes and kickbacks in exchange for city contracts? No wonder it took the Crescent City so long to get back on it’s feet after Dick Cheney blew up the levees.

As a 49ers fan, I have no doubt the blackout was God’s mercy on display.

Only reason I wanted Ravens over 49ers is Pelosi is from SF and I wanted her to be sad.

Imagine Ray Lewis in retirement? Him going about his every day business in some steroid rage fueled ruckus just makes me giddy!

He'll be inside prison within 18 months, doing seven to ten.

That's what Ray Nagin (under indictment) mayor named NO. Maybe you should speak to him and his city council about it?

You must be a racist to tell a black man, Mayor Nagin, that he cannot call it the “Chocolate City”.

For what it’s worth......

Mayor Nagin at a Martin Luther King Day celebration at City Hall New Orleans on January 16, 2006, gave a speech.

snip

Shortly after, Nagin continued, “We as black people, it’s time, it’s time for us to come together. It’s time for us to rebuild a New Orleans, the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans. And I don’t care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day.”

We should start a Ray Lewis pool. Two different groups.

#1) The Ray Lewis sits hiz azz in jail pool.

#2) The Ray gits as good as he gave pool, aka the Ray is Room heat pool.

The anti-up pot is $5 per date and hour, with tie breaker being am or pm and in case of that being a tie, face up or face down.

It was George W. Bush's fault. Anything bad that happens in New Orleans is Bush's fault. We learned that in 2005. It's because Bush doesn't care about black people.

He does, on the other hand, care about black Scottish terriers.

I know what a “chocolate shower” is...it’s what the guy running the honey wagon gets when a hose coupling lets go and the contents get sprayed all over the place. Is “Chocolate city” something similar?

Not sure I can see the point of this deeply stupid post. For the record, the city has nothing to do with the design or management of the superdome.

I bet Ray Lewis knows who KILLED the lights. But he ain’t telling. He’s lawyering up instead.

God apparently does like “winners” though. Even if they covered up a murder or two.

Hey Romulus...I haven't seen you around in a while friend.

In The Heart Of The Night

In the mid to late 50's I used to listen to radio station WTIX out of NO. The stations here were not allowed to play much of the new 'Rock & Roll' music.
We had to sneak and listen to it from our parents too.

I lived on Lee Circle there at one time, I think it was 1965.

Camp, like Lucha Libre, the late great burlesque, flea market velvet Elvis has always been cool. Genuine folklore. Bourgeois camp like Thomas Kinkade, Michael Flatley, the Gypsy Kings, and this Beyonde woman last night, is pretentious and plain ridiculous.

Don’t be so down. Kaepernik was a total stud in the 2nd half and because of him, the Niners dayamn-near pulled off a stunning comeback victory.

‘Course, the Seahawks creamed ya during the regular season.

The Western Conference is gonna be a lot of fun to watch for the next few seasons because of kids like Colin Kaepernik and Russell Wilson.

I was channel surfing last night and happened on CBS just before the half time show. Announcer said “Your Superbowl Half Time show starts RIGHT NOW!”

Then they went into a 30 second cola commercial. I went by by.

All that bumping and grinding slutty carp she was doing was beyond disgusting. I had to change the channel before barfing so missed the black out. Not much going on with the game until the last few minutes anyway.

Most in NO knew Nagin was on the take. Nearly everybody in the business community....that's for sure.

Now....he's not going to take a plea deal and looks like he is going to SUE the Feds. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What the He*l happened to our country? We have the biggest Marxist, Chi slime ball, petty pol of all time in the WH— His horrid, fat arsed, unelected, shrewish, America hating wife making public policy, redistributing tax $$$ by the billions—and guys like Nagin not being punished when everybody knows they are guilty of corruption...Corzine, etc. Not about race...about corrupt Leftist POS’s. Ms. Clinton not held to account for Benghazi????????????? Oh...and anybody following the EPA?

And, after seeing the way the players acted last night (disgusting how they threatened each other and got no penalty or did the “hey, Mammy, I just poohed my pants” dance after a TD...and the ghetto strippers with the horse hair and no talent slither around for 20 minutes at half time...I swear....We have lost this country. I'm seriously looking on where to re-locate. Maybe give Texas a chance first...but seriously....I think the USA as it was founded...is done for. Sorry to be a downer...but that Super Bowl just made put me over the edge...

If you think the post is deeply stupid, move on.

And, btw, the Superdome is in NO and runs JUST LIKE THE REST OF THAT CESS POOL. Jmho.
