A jury on Tuesday turned a cold shoulder to a Knoxville man's claims he was justified in punching an assistant manager at a fast-food restaurant after a dispute over a hot fudge sundae.

"I just wanted to make sure he actually (left)," Skelton said. "I took two more steps out the door, and he hit me in the face."

"The food appeared to be right, but the dessert, it had chocolate on the bottom," Wilson told jurors. "The hot fudge should be on top. It freezes up when you get fudge on the bottom of it. I asked them to redo it."

I HATE when they do that. Violence was justified.

With this being a dispute over McDonald's food and a white guy as the target, I'd have to say that the dude showed incredible restraint by not beating him to death and/or inciting a riot.

There is a growing undercurrent in the US of some people filled to the brim with hate and anger, who thought Obama was the means by which they would project that hate and anger against others.

They craved somebody to blame all their problems on, to take out all the bad feelings they had. And to be richly rewarded for doing so.

Like the Weimar Germans traumatized by the depression and the hyperinflation, they already hated the Jews, and Hitler gave focus to that hatred. “It is because of the Jews you are poor. It is because of the Jews you suffer. The Jews cause all of the problems that torment your lives. You must strike out at the Jews for doing this!”

And this is what they wanted Obama to do. Against *someone*. But he just stumbled around, more filled with empty promises than the revenge they wanted.

And now they see that Obama’s time is coming to an end.

But the pressure, the anger, the hate, the personal pain is still there, or even worse. It is tearing them up inside.

And so they want to lash out. It doesn’t really matter against who, but if somebody is like the people they have blamed in the past, they are a better target.

The innocent person on the street is the person to violently attack. No other real motivation that to hurt someone else, that maybe by doing so some of what is in them will dissipate. To transfer the hate and anger to someone else.

But it doesn’t work. The problem is inside them, and if there is a cure, it is inside them as well. Though few will ever figure that out.

Whatever happens, these people are a threat to us all.

Noting Skelton was a white man half the size of Wilson, a black man, in a restaurant packed with black patrons, Counts dismissed Wilson’s account with the rhetorical query, “Are you insane?”

Of course and Entitled.

Speaking of entitled. I have to be forced to go the grocery store with my wife. I’m sick of seeing the illegals and others of the Entitlement gang with 5 kids and carts piled high with all manner of food. In the same line are pensioners who look more like they are eeking out their last dollar to to buy what looks more like dog food.

America sucks like this.

"Wilson insisted, via defense attorney Mary Ward, Skelton "charged" Wilson and called him a racial slur."

So naturally whitey deserved a beat down and possibly death at the hands of Wilson. Since when does a racial slur justify murder or attempted murder? Oh yeah, 2008.

The Entitlement gang will one day resort to eating each other when those checks stop coming.

Well, they may try. Almost certainly will.

But they will soon discover that sympathy is found in the dictionary between shiite and syphilis.

Honestly, I haven't read a single reply.
But I am betting we're dealing with another Amish, one of Holder's peeps, aka Obama sons.

Not trying to be a smartass here, but what did you think Obama meant when he said,

Our Time Has Come!!??

I know what my thought was.
"Uh Oh..."

Hate to tell you this.
It ain't America any more. It's a sad dystopic caricature.

Want another scenario from today?
I am going to "adult" school for the first time in my life. Computer courses. I really qualify among the few other adults of all races; but we oldsters are outnumbered 10 to one by illegals and anchor babies, who couldn't make it through high school, and who can't be trusted any longer in regular high schools.

95% are on cell phones, both sexes, hanging out outside, wearing trendy clothes, bling, bizarre accessories. and the are all texting, and they are all expensive cell phones, and all are on welfare, section 8 housing, food stamps.

I can't be certain, but pretty sure all of them are not calling their mothers to pick them up or checking in. It literally looked like some kind of contest. Cell phones and busy fingers as far as the eye could see in any direction.

I understand that there is an Obama free cell phone and cell service program. It's a smashing success.

I made the mistake of going to the link to read the comments after the news report.

Scary.

"The customer is always right" works only among the civilized.
I can't believe that there are that many stupid people.

In too many neighborhoods, "the customer is always right" causes flash mobs.

This just in... working poor and hungry.

Why is it that we can provide ample food for illegals and no help for the working poor?

Why not feed the working poor first and then the rest.... well.

Were Obama a creature of vision or stature, he could have been a problem. But in truth he did not earn what he is, so he does not understand the strength imparted by struggle.

More and more, I think he was just a construct of the CIA, intended to be a spy in the corridors of the Kremlin, not a leader. Certainly his mother and maternal grandfather were company people, and utterly committed to the world of espionage.

As such an agent, Obama would have been perfect for the Russians. His background is entirely fuzzy, but his credentials as a leftist are impeccable.

And I note that his leftist radical “mentors” are either still alive or died of natural causes, unlike almost every other radical of the period.

Yet Obama was built for purposes that no longer apply, so the CIA decided to “surplus” him into politics. They likely did so figuring that the Pentagon has had many former military entering politics, to their benefit, so why not do the same with former CIA?

The breakthrough, there, was H.W. Bush, who though a civilian appointment, was entirely a CIA creature as its head. Even back then he might have approved the eventual elevation of company employees “in the afterlife”, while still retaining secrecy of their agency origins.
