Oh, My!

This creates such a graphic image in my brain I could be thoroughly chastized by the PC police for having such thoughts.

But, it sure rings true to form.

Seriously?

People who think it's OK for someone to yap incessantly on a cell-phone for 16 hours in a designated quiet car?

I hope they'll come on here to explain and debate.

Lay-key-sha should wear more flattering colors, like orange. White makes her look ever so slightly overweight. :)

Blacks are NOT inferior, but it is RACIST to hold them to the same standards as everyone else.

Well, what better place to gab for 16 hours without interruption than in a quiet car. There's too much noise in those other cars, doncha know...

This is UNACCEPTABLE.

Sure, they booted her off, but they stopped the train first.

Why did they stop the train first?

Well, it could’ve been worse.

She could’ve been naked as well. An ongoing assault on the ears AND the eyes at the same time!

Seriously, though, the news has become full of these stories about people who have no concept of any social contract to behave in public.

Another predictable outcome from the “Great Society”.

KOMO News reports that Lakeysha Beard says she felt "disrespected" by the incident, though passengers said it was Beard who was being rude by refusing to stop yapping while sitting in one of the train's designated quiet cars.

Oh, I see. So yapping loudly on a phone in a designated quiet car it isn't disrespectful to the people who paid for the quiet car, but throwing her loud ass out of the car for not following the one simple rule is disrespectful to her.

At least she hasn't cried racism ... yet...

Lakeisha meaning and name origin

Lakeisha \l(a)-kei-sha\ as a girl's name is pronounced lah-KEE-shah. Possibly variant of Hebrew Kezia meaning "cassia tree", via Keesha and Keisha. Lakeisha and its variant forms are also rhyming variants of Leticia or from the combination of La- with Aisha (Arabic) "alive and well". The French prefix La- was first added by free people of color in Louisiana and has become a popular naming trend among African Americans. Also possibly (Swahili) "favorite one".

Lakeisha has 14 variant forms: Lakeesha, Lakecia, Lakesha, Lakeshia, Laketia, Lakeysha, Lakicia, Lakiesha, Lakisha, Lakitia, Laquisha, Lekeesha, Lekeisha and Lekisha.

Baby names that sound like Lakeisha are Laquesha and Lacacia.

View a list of the 3 names that reference Lakeisha.

Eh, anyone dumb enough to buy a Amtrak ticket to spend 24 miserable hours going from LA to Portland deserves this kind of experience. It will teach them that it’s much better to spend 5 minutes being groped by a homo TSA agent and 2 hours of flying time packed in like sardines. Plus it’s much cheaper to fly so there! Thank God we can still drive our cars, for now.

Actually, I kinda enjoy traveling by train.

The “Keystone” from NYC to Pittsburgh through Horseshoe Curve and the Zephyr through the Rockies are unforgettable rides.

The food in the dining cars is primo, too.

I was in the waiting room of a doctors office and there was some guy talking really loud on his phone for at least 20 minutes. When his name was called and he walked off everyone started clapping.

Lol. I wasn't entirely blameless, since I called that behaviour "jungle drum culture", which drew immediate and hysterical charges of "racism". And no, I wasn't nice about it. In the deathless words of JC Clarke, "I don't wanna be nice".

This particular segment of the public wouldn’t knowingly reference Hebrew is their life depended on it. Come to think of it, I just yesterday came across one of the MOA rituals which sort of spells out the distance between anything Hebrew and those folks. I’ll put it up when I get around to it :).
