Earlier today, I made a comment to the media that was later mischaracterized. When I referenced the word 'accident' today with regard to Trayvon's death, in NO way did I mean the shooting was an accident.
We believe that George Zimmerman stalked my son and murdered him in cold blood. The 'accident' I was referring to was the fact that George Zimmerman and my son ever crossed paths. It was an accidental encounter. If George Zimmerman hadn't gotten out of his vehicle, this entire incident would have been avoided.
My son was profiled, followed and murdered by George Zimmerman, and there was nothing accidental about that.

Lol, she accidentally called it an accident.

So now she's saying it was actually murder one?

Btw, her attorney is one of the most inarticulate attorneys I've ever heard. It's painful to listen to him.

My co-op had rules against black people until the late 90s. Then somebody wanted a mortgage, so they had to change.

How can you stand the shame of living in the same co-op as someone that needs a mortgage?

Did anyone else hear her the other day when she was talking about her heart? It was something along the lines of

"I want to talk from my heart. A heart has no color. It's not black, it's not white. It's red."

I loled, anyways.

I don't know if anybody needs one, and the maximum anybody is allowed to borrow is 50%, so it isn't too much shame.

PS At this point I get infuriated when my current neighbors leave items in their hallway or don't pick up their junk mail that's left in our entryway so a "spare parts" car would be grounds for jihad.

When I was a kid my family was one of the better ones in the neighborhood. When our cars broke we worked on them and got them running instead of leaving them to rust like others. As the neighborhood yuppified we ended up being the neighborhood rednecks because we drove older cars and fixed them ourselves. I remember in college coming home to work on my car and after being on a ramp for 2 days there was a towing warning on the window. We all realized how much the neighborhood had changed.

Thank god. Your 1% status was a little shaky there for a moment!

However, I think you hit on some residual hate for HOAs and such. Deed restrictions were certainly used at one time to racially and ethnically segregate.

A mortgage makes sense for tax reasons, which is why we allow them but with limits. Co-op ownership would be a pain if somebody defaulted, so protection makes sense.

My dislike for HOAs is that I hate forced conformity. I also think it brings out the worst in people. I don't see an upside at all.

I am sympathetic to rules that prevent radically altering the character of neighborhoods, especially historic ones. The blog "ugly persian houses" about tear-downs in LA is very funny and sad at the same time. OTOH, I am also sympathetic to property rights and I don't know where the line should be.

I think society forces a certain level of conformity and an HOA is just another mechanism society has developed to do this. I would not want an overly restrictive one (society or HOA) but I do find a definite upside is a good HOA agreement. We'll just have to agree to disagree on this.

Nice, but if I can't put my jeep up on blocks for a weekend to change out the rear axle then it's a no go.

I want to thank Manton for that blog. Several laughs already.

Here's what I suggest. Let the New Black Panthers and the Aryan Neo Nazi Socialists have a go at each other in Sanford. The more killed the better and everyone will have an opinion and an agenda.
Now here's the question. Who would win ( meaning kill more )? My first inclination is to say the New Black Panthers since they have Hood experience and relevant training like drive-bys.
But we can't leave the Neo Nazis out of the contest. They might have knocked off an armory and posess some sophisticated weapons.
My purely subjective guess gives the New Black Panthers a 55/45% edge.
We need experts like Redcaiman, Dakota Rube or Harvy B to chime in with guesses.
When it comes to indiscriminate killing, my money is on whitey every time.

Bigus Dickus would certainly oversee the proceedings.

Rach, watch out for Incontinentia Buttocks ... wow.gif

As for HOAs, never lived where there was one, but given my childrens' wont to strew our property with their crap, I doubt we'd make the cut at most. shog[1].gif

And for Piob, we're one of those basketball net families your neighbours evidently love so much ... devil.gif
