Some George Zimmerman Comedy:
Comedians W. Kamau Bell, Chris Rock go in on George Zimmerman
Things may be quiet in Sanford, Florida after a week of jury selection in the trial of George Zimmerman, but a pair of black comedians are giving their uncensored take on the case.
W. Kamau Bell, host of the late night comedy show “Totally Biased” on F/X, weighed in on the case Thursday night, and pulled no punches about his feelings about the George Zimmerman. Zimmerman, 29, has pleaded not guilty to second degree murder, saying he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in self-defense after Martin attacked him on February 26, 2012. Martin was unarmed.
“Now of course I’m a believer in fair trials,” said Bell during a monologue. “But if there’s any god in heaven, and I’m pretty sure there isn’t, here’s who would be deciding Zimmerman’s fate: Chuck D, Angela Davis, the ghost of Malcolm X, fat Al Sharpton, angry Bill Cosby, Ice Cube … no no no, before, “Are we there yet?” Ice Cube … Samuel L. Jackson from “Pulp Fiction,” Samuel L. Jackson from “Snakes on a Plane,” Samuel L. Jackson from “Jackie Brown,” and foreman of the jury, regular old Samuel L. Jackson. …” As he spoke, pictures of his would-be “jurors” appeared onscreen.
Bell finished the sketch with a fusillade of what he called “all of the inflammatory words” Zimmerman’s attorneys have asked the trial judge to exclude from opening arguments, after which cameras cut to “Totally Biased” executive producer Chris Rock in the control room, who declared: “This guy’s good, we should give him a nightly show this fall. Oh yeah, George Zimmerman can eat a dick.”

A Fathers Day Message from Gilles Rousseau

Today is Gilles Rousseau’s first Father’s Day since his daughter Lauren was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary where she was a substitute teacher.
After reading out the names, including Lauren’s, of those who have been killed with guns in the past six months, the “No More Names” bus tour left Newtown, CT on Friday. The bus is driving across the country to bring the stories of victims, and the stories of survivors and loved ones to the doors of our leaders.
Please watch and share this video to help spread the word and prevent other families from going through this kind of pain:
Thanks for everything you do,
From The Fifth Column:
Bob Schieffer excoriated NSA-leaker Edward Snowden on Face the Nation this morning, not as a traitor but as a coward who fled the country rather than accept responsibility for his actions.
“I like people who are willing to stand up to the government,” Schieffer began. “As a reporter, it’s my job to do that from time to time. Some of the people I admire most are in the government. Men and women who led the civil rights movement— Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr.—they are true heroes. I’m not ready to put Edward Snowden in that category. For one thing, I don’t remember Martin Luther King, Jr. or Rosa Parks running off and hiding in China. The people who led the civil rights movement were willing to break the law and suffer the consequences. That’s a little different than putting the nation’s security at risk and running away.”
Schieffer was careful not to let his disapproval of Snowden be misconstrued as complete acceptance of the surveillance Snowden revealed, but was also careful to criticize a program about which he knew little.
“I know eleven people who died or lost a member of their family on 9/11,” Schieffer said. “My younger daughter lived in Manhattan then. It was six hours before we knew she was safe. I’m not interested in going through that again. I don’t know yet if the government has over-reached since 9/11 to reinforce our defenses, and we need to find out. What I do know, though, is that these procedures were put in place and are being overseen by officials we elected and we should hold them accountable.”
“I think what we have in Edward Snowden is just a narcissistic young man who has decided he is smarter than the rest of us. I don’t know what he is beyond that, but he is no hero. If he has a valid point—and I’m not even sure he does—he would greatly help his cause by voluntarily coming home to face the consequences.”

From My Good Best Friend, Ms. Shelley “Carrots” Peterson:
A Poem I wrote for my Daddy a few father’s Days Back…
But today He requested me to recite it to him again over the phone. I don’t remember if I shared it with you before to post but feel free of course, this is the perfect day right. It may make more sense with the story:
I purchased a large print bible for him as his was very worn and smaller print anyway…so then I wanted it to be more than just a bible and so I tired to hire someone to write a small story about him that turned out to be too expensive and not easy to find a writer I liked, lol.
So I jotted down some short notes on scrap paper and scribbled, scratched and crossed out many times etc. Anyway I was trying to write something to instead of a store bought card and got frustrated … and running out of time went and bought a card…not saying anything special…I purchased a lovely antique style piece of cloth and a long piece of very roman looking tricolor blended rope, to gold tone satin hearts to glue on each end of the ropes so it looked like something from a kings robe, then I wanted a book mark to fit the whole theme so I find a long strand of tiny peal looking beads tied the ends together to form an unbroken circle…So I placed the beads inside the bible as the book marker, gifted wrapped the bible with the large piece of cloth and tied it in a gift bow with the rope.
I thought that would be the best part of the gift for him with the bible of course…but as I gave him the gift and after he read the card I told him Dad wait, I want to tell you why I picked the gift wrapping accessories before you open it and I made a few scribble notes so I wouldn’t leave anything out.
I pulled out my scribble up paper that was folded in my pocket, which was also very wrinkle because I had thrown it away after I got frustrated and decided to buy the card instead ….but it was good enough for me to read my own junkie notes LOL…when I finished I tossed it in the trash as he wiped tears from his eyes holding the unopened gift still on his lap, I wasn’t expecting his emotions like that full tears big smile etc etc…he hadn’t opened the gift yet …anyway after we ate dinner and after cut the his father’s day cake..then he asked for a copy of the speech…omg lol it was just scribble notes written upside down, side ways etc.
I said Dad you can’t read them I really just had abbreviated notes and key words …so he ask me to sit down in his office and write it out where he could read it that is what he wanted before I leave …oh man, Dad really was my thoughts …gee whizzz ….well I really couldn’t remember what all I had just said but I did go home and was able to recreate pretty much what I filled in on that day.
He surprised me a month later when he called me to come down to his office and mounted on the wall of his lobby where you walk in was a long gold in cased picture frame with a gold plated spot light shinning on it from above and they told me to turn around and read it.
It was my words on a cheese type cloth professionally written in calligraphy, the rope was draped around the top and sides of the printing with the 2 hearts on each end the cloth was layered at the bottom of the poem and, he kept the beads as his book mark.
The Father’s Day Poem:
A simple act of kindness
might not seem to make a difference,
But sometimes these little things touch hearts
more than we can ever imagine.
On the odd occasion a little thoughtfulness
might just be enough to change someone’s life.
Kindness Always Matters!
