    The goof-ball on here, assuming the names of regulars and posting things they don’t say, needs to be banned.
    This is a free country, and I’ll believe what I want to for whatever reason I want to. If you think it’s hateful and racist, too bad! You’re doing nothing to further your cause and likely not paying for endless amount of people, you assume this country can support, without consequences.

      What does Turkey Hill have to do with this? Do you even know who did it?… OK by your logic we should ban the St. Patrick’s Day parade or Pierogi Festival parade the next time (and there have been plenty of times already and on this site now) a person of Irish or Polish descent commits a crime. What utter nonsense.

      BTW. I’ll give Lloyd some props re 9/11. So called “christians” love to crow their “moral superiority” over over religions. Yet they refuse to practice even the most basic tenant of christianity: brotherly love. Terrorists sow seeds of fear and hate, stand back and watch as these so-called christians nurture them into trees of racism that divide our community. And then yes, the terrorists have won. (Trump also is a master of fomenting this kind of hatred and division for his own political and economic fortune at the expense of you and me).

        You don’t know what your talking about and lumping all people into a negative group, plus showing your religious bias. Go away. BTW, Terrorists aren’t religious or good people and no one is “nurturing” them. You’re an idiot who wants everyone to think like you, and if they don’t, they’re automatically hateful and racist. Grow up!

    Celebrate diversity while the city goes down the drain. Turkey Hill got robbed again, but it’s okay, we’re diverse. Pathetic.

    • LLOYD SCHMUCATELLI

      I understand B. I used to think that way but now by the grace of God I have changed. If we keep on with our anger, we will give the 9/11 terrorists just what they wanted. They want to see us destroy ourselves and each other because they hate us. If we hate them and then turn our anger on others, then we have lost and they have one. Overcome evil with good, B. Will you join me?

    We need to be more tolerant of diversity and this is a great start! We can all be proud of our heritage. Red and yellow black and white, they are precious in his sight.

      It is fine that you want to make this a personal attack as it shows just how weak you are cupcake. The truth is hard for you to accept.

    • LLOYD SCHMUCATELLI

      Truth? You can’t handle the truth. You are a racist mofo! Every time you post I will be there you bstrd. I am just like Trump. I call it as I see it.

    I like direct deposit, don’t have to leave the house. The money I would have spent on gas, I can use on hsn.

  • SNOFLAKE

    I gave myself thumps up! I can give you thumbs down all day long. What’s the matter, you sauced already? Sorry. “Sauce” was not meant to offend your ancestry.

  • SNOFLAKE

    It wasn’t that they didn’t want white people. They just didn’t invite the village idiots. Present company excluded of course!

    • SNOFLAKE

      I got 7 thumbs down! Must be all of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Limeys, Dagos and Pollocks! They are all shooting up about now.

  • SNOFLAKE

    The English said the same about the Irish when your Irish Mick ancestors were drunk on cheap booze…just like you every weekend, right Paddy?

    • SNOFLAKE

      Awww, got another thumbs down!!!! Must be those drunk Limey bstrds from Wilkes-Barre. Let’s wait until March and the St. Patrick’s Day parade! Does that give me a thumbs up????

  • SNOFLAKE

    Aztecs have origins in what is now the U.S. But since you only have a GED, we wouldn’t expect you to know.

  • SNOFLAKE

    I am sorry, I can’t understand you. Can you type that in English or did you never learn it? Nice grammar white trash!

    • Lloyd Schmucatelli

      Oh ya, the white trash come back. Love it!

      Except that I probably pay more taxes per quarter than you make all year! That is if you actually have a job…

      PS: that would be Mr. White Trash to you.

    • SNOFLAKE

      Your right. Should have used “Stupid Dago” instead so you could understand you Schmuck. You still trying to compare sizes and whose is bigger. Hey and if I hurt your feelings, you gonna report my comment or are you gonna stand there and take it like a man?

    • Lloyd Schmucatelli

      Sorry, I was just finishing up with yo momma. Since we’re going to the 3rd grade route of bickering back and forth…

    • SNOFLAKE

      Stand up and take your beating like a man! Tell me how much you pay in taxes each quarter and I will tell you. Surprised if you can count that high! You backing down???

    • SNOFLAKE

      Gave me a thumbs down, huh! Guess we can see how tough you are now! What’s the matter, did I hurt your feelings? Can’t think of a comeback? Crawling back under the rock from where you came? I’ll just look for you on other posts and I’ll find you again you racist pig!

    • Lloyd Schmucatelli

      It’s not racist when it’s true cupcake. Welcome to the party nonetheless.

      I look forward to smashing every argument you have into pieces in the future.

    • SNOFLAKE

      There you are!!! Why wait for another day? Let’s get this over with and smash away! You too afraid you can’t keep up Whiteboy or are you still busy with Momma????

    What is there to disagree with?? It is a celebration of culture. It is a chance to actually meet and talk to these “monsters” and find out that there are many good and nice folk in all cultures (and all cultures have their trash too — ours included). Just locking yourself in your house and “hating” something/someone won’t solve any our problems. Just curious. Even though the statistics show the opposite, people perceive “these people” as responsible for all the crime problems. Do you think that spewing hated/discrimination against a group (e.g. not getting job opportunities based on race etc), helps someone avoid crime? Does it make you want to “integrate” into a society that only shows you hate? Of course not. The white people who practice racial hatred are a huge part of the problem. Do your part before you criticize. (Your part is nothing more than being a decent human being and judge each person on their own merits)
