Formerlylone, isn't the NBA already a black league?

On the "shame on you" letter, I made a comment that said, "today is tuesday." Someone on the left disagreed. OK loser, what day is it?

There is 30 NBA owners on a planet of 8 billion people. They are an exclusive club. What if he has a few tapes of his own. You may be watching WNBA next year lone.

They busted two more losers today. Probably just a witch hunt though. They probably did drugs as children and everybody around them didn't think it was a big deal. Now they are going to jail. The good part is the author's money will now be supporting them.

In regards to that "witch hunt" I spoke of "On April 29, the NBA banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life after he made racially insensitive comments about minority players. He was also fined for $2.5 million." He needs to tell the NBA to shove it and then just shut the team down.

Speaking of "witch hunts" brings to mind the outcry over Donald Sterling's comment and the cry's of racism. Now this is racist "Larry Johnson, who played in the NBA for ten years, has called for an “All-Black” basketball league in the wake of racist remarks made by the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Johnson, who now works in the front office of the New York Knicks, tweeted, “Black people your Focusing on the wrong thing. We should be focusing on having our own, Own team own League! To For Self!!” Johnson was known for making racial comments during his playing years. In 1999 he told reporters, “We’ve got a lot of rebellious slaves on this team.” So the blacks don't want to be treated different but want all black sports teams. Leftist racism at it's best.

Horace: "...My point is, there are far bigger fish to fry than a witch hunt for marijuana in our local schools." (Like a swat team searching the premises for a Bible!)

Is this letter meant to be a joke?

The author of this letter is the perfect example of a colossal jewel of ignorance. People who think like him ARE what is wrong with our society.

The left loves to engage in personal attacks and name calling. But they need a point man. Someone that they know will always be there with a personal attack every time they get into a tight spot. Monkey comes on some but you can tell he's a little lost without gravel's leadership on the mud throwing. Everytime you would ask a simple question gravel would jump in with "don't get drawn into all the Q and A's. Have I ever told you that? I know you can handle the Q and A's. Gravel knew the left can't handle the Q and A's.

Yes, I did notice. I thought it might have had something to do with the total access thing. But your point is intriguing. Question is did he have multiple ID's or is a simple case of when you cut the head off the rest of the snake dies.

Has anyone noticed how many liberal user ID's disappeared at the same time as gravels did. Just a thought.

Can you imagine Lou Grant being the editor at the PJ and printing those hard hitting "thank-you" letters? Even Ted Baxter wouldn't print those letters. If they want to have a thank-you section, fine. But save letters to the editor for real topics.

I've reread this letter a couple of times. It's a tough read. Having weed in school is far different than having weed at your home.

As for the pj, I'm going to start sending some of these stupid letters they have fallen in love with to Ogden. They are embarrassing themselves and boring their readers.

Seems the PJ has bowed to certain groups who do not tolerate a different view. Sad the political correctness has changed the letters allowed to be printed.

Post Journal hits a new low, which is getting pretty low these days. I also know several people whose well-written letters on cultural issues have not been printed, yet they will print absolute nonsense like this. Research done at Harvard and Northwestern, reported in Journal of Neuroscience, reveals the facts on marijuana. I think these facts were apparent 30 years ago to people with any powers of observation and integrity.

There is so much wrong with this letter that I don't know what to gripe about. I'll stick to one complaint. Children NEED to understand the concept of consequence. If they do good things, good consequences come. If they choose illegal things, bad stuff like being searched and punished by school and police happens. Libs want to take away any bad consequences for things they deem they want to do.

And let's not forget about the comment yesterday that the 50 million people killed in WW2 were all replaced by the baby boom. So it didn't help much with population control. Maybe the pj just wants to become a tabloid newspaper.

Remember back in High School when the pretty girl with a great personality would date a complete jerk from another school. Same thing, the pj receives a well written letter from a long time customer and they publish the letter by the dude from the other school. And his letter is poorly written and makes no sense.

Child to teacher: "It's ok mrs. Johnson, we're only smoking weed, we would never sell drugs in school. That would be wrong."

Yesterday we had a family of seven complaining that their neighborhood was too crowded. And now this clown. And the pj won't publish my letter.

Don't take and sell drugs in school and there would be no need for a "witch hunt". Only someone dumb as a rock would call this a witch hunt.
