ZAYN - Too Much ft. Timbaland is the song of the day and this is the OPEN THREAD for right now . . .


  1. Saw part of Slie’s press conference and it was pathetic. He mentioned all of the failed feel good programs and indicated the city and police did not know what to do about the violence. One thing Slie knows how to do is politicize a bad situation and claim more federal and state funds are needed to help solve the problem.

    What he did not say, and what he surely knows, is more important. He did not say who commits and where the crimes happen. He did not say tougher policing and stronger prosecution is going to happen. He did not say community leaders will be involved in mentoring the young people and showing them there is a better way to live, but this requires actual work and commitment. Essentially he is all talk and no action which has been going on for years. In short he refused to place the blame where it belongs. Basically the press conference was a regurgitation of the same old failed approach as in the past.

  2. I would like to get on top of Emily


  3. So Sly admits he is a dumb ass and doesn't know what to do, but at the same time he won't step down and admit defeat.

    Maybe Sly should take some tips from Rudy. After all Rudy cleaned up NYC and violence went way down on his watch.

    Be a man for once Sly, step down you don't know what you're doing.

  4. Fuck...isn't it lightning, not lightening?????

  5. 8:40. I know! It's some 24 year old kid on those graphic line editors. Without auto-correct, they can't spell anything!

  6. Sly needs to come right out and tell the people of the affected communities to join the human race. He needs to tell them to stop robbing, burglarizing, and assaulting each other. He needs to tell those folks that robbery and assault aren't actual jobs and a source for regular income. He needs to tell those people that if they want to join the human race, women are going to have to withhold sex from the men who commit these crimes, and men are going to have to start being fathers rather than sperm donors. it won't happen. Sly's son is one of them.

  7. Sly wont say shit to the black community because that would interfere with his planned discussion about race on the 29th of the month.

  8. Just (ekk) tried to (ekk) watch Channel 5 broadcast of the erratic (ekk) driver, supposedly (ekk) in NORTH Kansas City suburb ekkkkkkkkk..... (sigh) the (ekk) indicates a break in the broadcast. There ARE NO suburbs in NKC, for crying out loud. This is in Kansas City, MO, but we can't be sure because the reporter didn't say where he was reporting from.
