And here you go again. I guess all the butthurt that you've experienced in threads where you've decided to respond to me has eaten into your common sense. You know, I can easily fix that. Respond to me some more.

I found a few very nice Turbo sizing calculators online Junk.

Its practical and fairly inexpensive to Turbo Boost to 800 - 1000 HP with Pontiac V8 Power.

Been working on the Math last few days.
Give a call to a few Turbo Manufacturers tomorrow Monday.

1 out of the 3 455's of mine will be Turbo charged.
Not much PSi boost required to reach my goal.

I find the article to be moot at this point. It was written before the verdict, and it insisted that most of the demonstrators were peaceful, and that only a few troublemakers caused any trouble. That might have been true in August, but not November. It also criticized the military type police response for escalating the problem. What we saw after the verdict was a genuine effort at restraint by the police, and look what happened. The police were accused of allowing the violence to escalate by not being more aggressive and not having a larger National Guard contingent. And burning a couch in the street is equivalent with burning down a whole community and torching dozens of cars? I think the facts on the ground in the days after the verdict proved that this writer was so full of shit her eyes turned brown.

A few days ago there was a protest in Portland and this 12 yo boy went with his family and he had a sign that said "Free Hugs" and this Police Sgt. got one. I think it's a great picture.

Oh, yes it was an oversight. Let me address it.

When black people protest against police violence in Ferguson, Missouri, they're thought of as a "mob."

But when white people got up in arms at the Pumpkin Festival in Keene, New Hampshire, a few weeks ago -- for apparently no reason whatsoever -- they were merely accused of "disruptive behavior."

The two situations -- protests in Ferguson and drunken violence in Keene -- are not equivalent. However, it's revealing how the two groups are perceived differently by society and and the media. How is it that the bad behavior of some black people is used to condemn an entire community, while the bad behavior of some white kids is excused and explained away?


Like it or not, THAT'S TRUE when it comes to the media. If it were "I" who was writing either article, BOTH mobs would be called idiots. The media doesn't seem to see it that way. How do YOU see it? That statement has NO MERIT?

The protests were largely peaceful, but there were some looters and other troublemakers.

Again TRUE, but you won't acknowledge that because the cameras didn't spend a lot of time hanging out with those folks now did they? What's exciting about a peaceful protest? Since YOU didn't see it, that DIDN'T HAPPEN, correct? You see how the media has created your BIASED opinion and caused YOU to paint an entire fraction of ONE race with a single swoosh of one brush? Do you believe that every single protester was black? What about the rioters, can you say with ANY credibility that ALL of them were black? I can clearly see your bias!

Police aggression made the protests worse. Slate's Jamelle Bouie, who was on the scene, tweeted, "This has been the consistent pattern. Unilateral police escalation prompts minor response from more volatile elements, justifying crackdown."

Jamelle Bouie is full of the most profound shit. Some of the protesters escalated that shit but the police could have handled it differently. Problem is, this is what happens when you have a "us vs. them" mentality with your local police department instead of a "community oriented policing" mentality out of your police department. I saw this first hand with the LAPD when I was a cop out there. I have first hand experience. Do you?

Still, most protesters maintain an iron-clad commitment to nonviolence, which the New York Times noted in a detailed report.

Did you even BOTHER to read that report???

Yet, many on social media and some in the mainstream media continue to use the isolated actions of a small number of bad protesters to smear the entire community. The smears often carry a subtle, racially tinted message. "Stunning Photos From Violent Protests in Ferguson, Mo." read a headline on the conservative Daily Caller website, adding "Is This America?" "Ferguson Thugs Harass, Verbally Abuse Police Officers," read a headline on the conservative website RightScoop. "We know now that thugs are thugs," conservative radio host Laura Ingraham offered on Fox News.

So there is NO TRUTH to that whatsoever??? What Disney World community are YOU living in where this is NOT a reality to you? I suggest you venture outside of that perfect little bubble and spend some time doing community work. Meet some of the down trodden and forgotten individuals within your city so that you can get a better grasp of the lower echelon within your city. You will find out that all of them are NOT leeches, NOT uneducated and are NOT lazy. This may come as a shock to you but it is MY reality. Thank God I did not take the mentality of your "black friends" and decide that once I was out of the hood, I would never go back.

I live about 8 blocks from the worse project housing in Louisville. I live about a half mile from the projects that I grew up in. YET, I go through those areas DAILY for two reasons. One, because I NEVER want to get the notion that I am better than anyone and two, I never want to forget where I came from. This is my way of staying grounded and not thumbing my nose in the air because "I think that I've made it." Compared to where and what I grew up in, people would agree that I'm doing a lot better than what I came into this world with.




Now I could continue going through that "article with no merit" and find plenty of truth in it but I want to give YOU a chance to respond to the MANY, and I mean MANY questions that I have asked you in this thread. You have yet to respond to any of those. Or, you can quietly walk away. Either way, I will get the message LOUD and CLEAR.
