Good for Bertha. She’s one helluva gal.
Glad to hear it but more arrests are due. Start with the 2 baton-weilding black panthers who posted themselves outside the polling place for the express purpose of intimidating voters. From there move on to the SEIU members who trespassed on private property for their protest. Move next to whoever offered Sestak a job to drop out of his senate race. And don’t stop until they get to the ILLEGAL alien in the WH.
Union thugs, 350-pound career welfare recipients, and professional America-haters singing “We Shall Overcome.” This is Obama’s America.
They don’t work??? So, our taxed money pays for them to get the MEDIA coverage they desire? These are the very people who want to destroy this republic. When they were being interviewed they were speaking in Spanish, most can’t even speak “ENGLISH”.
Most of all, the NYC police department prove once again they are fabulous.
The Black Institute? Really?
Thity-seven? Is that before Fitty-seven?
This is what our tax dollars pay for...sad isn’t it.
Ran into a rainstorm, I ducked back into a bar door.
It’s all night pourin’, pourin’, pourin’,
Lord but not a drop on me.
Test me, test me,
Test me, test me, test me,
Why don’t you arrest me?
Throw me in to the jailhouse,
Lord until the sun goes down, ‘till it goes down.
“I had to move, really had to move,
That’s why if you please, I am on my bendin’ knees,
Bertha don’t you come around here anymore.”
Lyrics by the Dead.
Keep her there.
A pox on all their houses.
Fine. Keeping them in jail may actually be a good use of taxpayer money.
