No one from PG county can possibly claim the moral high ground in the DC metro area. NO WAY.

Stuff and nonsense.

I'm beating up on Barry because he's the subject of the current thread.

If the subject of the current thread were the gross misconduct of the PG County Council, or the PG County Police, or the Glorious Peoples Democratic Republic of Maryland, I'd beat up on them, instead. And do so from a first hand perspective. Which you lack.

As is, the subject is that abject moron Barry, who was and is indefensible, despite your pathetic attempts to deflect blame from his manifest inability to accomplish anything useful.

Barry was merely an employee. The Constitution says Congress runs the District ~ Congress failed

ROFL!!!!!!! That's rich.

The brainless ones in the District bitched and whined and moaned and blathered about "oppression" ... so Congress gave them Home Rule.

And they screwed it up so severely, and so completely, and so disgracefully to the Nation as a whole that Congress finally had to step in and put a stop to it.

Don't give me any rot about "taxation without representation", and don't whine about the District not being allowed to govern itself. The District proved, by experiment, that it is UNABLE to govern itself.

YOUR WORDS: "BTW, I had the pleasure of voting against Bobby "I won't serve with a negro" Byrd ~ which clearly mean you voted in an election in West Virginia ~ hardly in the local area.

And knowing West Virginians, I'd guess you voted there long enough over the years to have ALSO voted for him, whether you did or not ~ the Democrat machine out there would make sure that's where your vote went.

Or, alternatively, you are one of those former FBI drones who worked out there who still don't understand that the rest of us don't necessarily agree with the FBI's set ups for celebrity arrests.

Not their job really. They should be going after real criminals like Obama and his buds.

Thanks to Holder, the N word is now a fully functioning noun, adjective, adverb and applies perfectly to the likes of Holder, Marion Barry, Al Sharpton, J. Jackass, Cynthia Ann McKinney, Maxine Waters and most other democrats for that matter white or black.

It is a perfect shorthand description of their contribution or lack thereof to society.

If only a real American who just happened to be of the black race, Alan Keyes had been elected (I voted for him twice) we might have had much better race relations than from the race card bomb throwers in the current Marxist, Mud-Slime administration.

I see. You know that you can't defend that idiot Barry, so you start attacking me.

Lovely.

I win.

You lose.

You are dismissed.

You knew that you couldn't successfully attack Barry ~ (mostly because you just don't know the half of it) ~ so you already attacked me.

You just want to deal with the man like he was always a clown ~ and that pretty much paints you with the brush of being a Washington Post troll.

First, Marion doesn’t have a single Pole in his district....so he doesn’t have to worry much about negativity over the comments. Second, Marion can pretty much just keep running for city council and winning....as long as he can breathe. Finally, if he ever did retire....what the heck would the guy do? He can’t write a book over all the things he ever did....because no one would read it.

I seem to think our citizens both American and Canadian of polish descent would not get worked up about it. Of course the press, or much of it, appears to be the arbiter of whether the general public get worked up. Remind me of kids at school, going to the teacher and saying " ooh, guess what Johnny said!". Johnny would get chastised according to the status of the tail bearer. I have a quotation, which I will concede may not be here or there.

So frown'd he once, when in angry parle,
He smote the sledded Polacks on the ice.
Tiz Strange.

Hamlet, Prince Of Denmark.
Scene one, act one.

William Shakespeare.

The politically correct brigade, tried to alter the original meaning and tried to change it to..... the dreaded poleaxe on the ice. They did not succeed. Marion Barry in good company, I wonder if he reads Shakespeare. (Laughs)

Marion Berry, Mayor for Life, has the Marion Berry Pie (sold by local Safeway grocery stores) named after him.

So it's not out of the question that he reads Shakespeare!

First you say all Polish people are weaklings, then you say it’s just Polish Americans,you tell me I’m a crybaby because my opinion of the Polish people differ from yours, and now you say I’m a liberal.

I’m sure you wouldn’t tell a polish man your first two opinions to his face. Your 3rd opinion is stupid and your 3rd opinion is wrong.

I think I’ll stand by my opinion.

I didn’t know they still existed.

I have gotten them on Washington Blvd. before, didn’t know they were still there.

Since my in-laws died I don’t get to Balmer much any more.
They lived in Elkridge.Long way from St. Mary’s County.

Because that's what he is.

And this, friends and neighbours, is why I have dismissed Mr/Miss/Mrs/Ms Muawiyah ... the poor soul is simply not living in reality.

'Bye, now.

Well anyway, Happy Memorial Day. Last thing I wanted to do is piss anyone off this weekend especially. Sorry about the entire thing.

Weaklings? I think NOT. The Polish people are among the strongest in the world, given the hell they’ve endured. I say this because of history, and not because I’m 100% Polish. All eight of my great grandparents were born in Poland. My father, is one of the biggest Polish joke tellers out there, but was raised before political correctness.

Maybe Democrats and blacks should start living by the rules they set forth.

Well? Lets hear a joke or two. As a professed pole, you start.
