|[Police Shooting] Jury doesn’t buy Fish & wildlife’s story. On October 15, 2019, harassed houseboat resident Bounds called FWC’s Office of Inspector General in Tallahassee asking for local FWC officers to be investigated for harassing him. Less than two hours later FWC officers and MCSO deputies boarded Bound’s houseboat one last time. They forced his door open only to find him allegedly holding the flame of a lighter inches from gasoline he was pouring over his own head while threatening to blow everybody up. FWC’s Captain David Dipre shot him three times. But Bounds survived and was arrested. And the police’s story began to unravel. Link
Seeing as Bounds was not guilty of anything will the officer be charged for attempted murder or harrassment?

|I want to give a loud shout out to Anchor Towing on Ramrod Key. Tuesday my wife and I were coming back home from the hospital in Marathon. We blew out a front tire between the seven-mile bridge and Sunshine Key. We have had AAA insurance for the past 4 years, this was the first time we called them for help. They said all of their agents in the Keys have quit and it would be 6 hours before they could send someone from Miami. I called Anchor Towing and in less than an hour they aired-up the flat spare, installed it, and had us on our way. Great service!|

|Latinos make up a whopping 18.5% of our population compared to just 12.5% of Blacks. How come Latinos don’t cry about not having a Brown History Month or a Brown History Channel on Netflix?|
[Pumpkin Pox ] Just in time for the Halloween season. The CDC announces a new strain of Monkey Pox, this is Pumpkin Pox. Usually caused by an overdose of any type of pumpkin spice.
|[How many days old are you] I am 28,314 days old. Which is 4044 weeks and 6 days. Link|
|[Veterans Day Celebration] November 11 at 11AM, in the auditorium at the Upper Keys Government Center, mile marker 102 Bayside. The audience will be treated to an exciting performance by our community band, along with student flag bearers presenting the banners of our armed forces, with a powerful closing video presentation. We’re looking forward and hoping to see everybody there. Thank you for your support.|
|[“Get rid of ni**ers”] Thank you for putting on that video of Jesse Lee Peterson. He is right on. It’s about time the truth was told. When will this country start doing something to fix this problem. White people are all afraid to talk about it|
|[Friday Joke] A mother and her young daughter were visiting New York City. The mother was trying to hail a cab when her daughter noticed several wildly dressed women who were loitering on a nearby street corner. The mother finally hailed her cab and they both climbed in, at which point the young daughter asked “Mommy, what are all those ladies waiting for by that corner?” The mother replies, “Those ladies are waiting for their husbands to come by and pick them up on the way home from work.”
The cabby, upon hearing this exchange, turns to the mother and says “Ah, c’mon lady! Tell your daughter the truth! For crying out loud! They’re hookers!”
A brief period of silence follows, and the daughter then asks “Mommy, do the hooker ladies have any children?” The mother replies, “Of course, Dear. Where do you think cabbies come from?”

|[“Get rid of ni**ers”] About time a Black man called a spade a spade. Wake up Black people. It is not Black people that we hate, it’s ni**ers.|
[Mad Cat] I’m fostering Tino, who was feral-trapped last week. He has strong feelings about domestication, me, and the horse I rode in on.
|[Get Rich] How to make billions of dollars the easy way. Just find something cheap and overcharge the fools who want to buy it, then reinvest every cent into untaxable municipal bonds and pay no taxes. And they say piracy is long gone.|
|Went to visit Niagara Falls, NY to visit family. While up there I went to see the Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp concert in Toronto. Women were throwing their used under garments at Depp. They love him. The only underwear I get thrown at me is when my spouse misses the dirty laundry bin|
|[Captain Doom and Gloom] We the People are losing control of our planet to sick bent mutants who will be in control and tell us how to live their way or else! If we do not fix these mutants and get back to a normal humanity this rock will die a horrible death by fags. Bet on it.
I figured it out, someone invented a system to make electricity free from the Sun and sea water without any machinery. It will be 100% profit and the vehicles and machines that they sell, and we use, will cost us more to dispose of than they cost to buy. Oil products will be plastics and lubes and laxatives, lots of laxatives. The N.W.O. has a rubber on its middle finger.
|[“Get rid of n***ers”] For you bigots out there, let me try to explain that a Black person is not a ni**er. A black person is just a normal person who blends into community. A ni**er is the scum that rises to the top of the behavior barrel and gets all the notice and brings shame to the majority of Blacks.|
[“Get rid of n***ers”] Yes, it needs to be said but I’m afraid to say it. The speaker didn’t mention White n***ers, specifically redneck hillbillies. They’re about as ignorant and dangerous as can be.
|[“Get rid of n***ers”] That post was awful, and I’m surprised, but glad, that the editor posted it here and not in the political section. No one has ever had that talk with Black people. Imagine starting that conversation in a room full of Black men! You wouldn’t get out. Only Black people can say those things to other Black folks. That’s why that video was so important and painful.|
|[Free Stuff] Internet Archive is a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, websites, and more. Video|
|[“Get rid of n***ers”] Skin color doesn’t mean a thing, you’re either a good person or you’re a piece of s**t. End of story. (Ed: Tuesday’s post wasn’t talking about skin color, but behavior.)|
[“Mustard water”] You would think after all these years you would have the brains and gumption to shake the mustard container. I’ve been doing it for decades and have never experienced mustard water. Solids and liquids will separate after sitting for a while.
|[Friday Joke] I’m not going to say who, but a friend just called and asked if I would loan her $1300 to help pay her rent. Those who know me, know that I’m always willing to help friends & family. I told her to give me some time to think about it and I would call her back. Before I called her back, her brother called to let me know that she was lying and not to give her the money. He went on to say that the real reason she wanted the $1300 was to get her boyfriend out of jail so she could be under the same roof as him for his birthday. I thought about it for a minute and decided to give her the money anyway because we all need help at times. A couple of hours later I get a call from the police station. It was her, crying, screaming and asking why I gave her counterfeit money? My response was, “So you and your boyfriend could be under the same roof for his birthday.”|
[“Unsanitary Restaurant”] I used to deliver propane to restaurants. I had a list in my head of places where I would not eat. If you could see the kitchens in most of your favorite restaurants, you would never eat there either
|[Movies] What would happen to action movies if the car always started, the cellphone always had 4 bars, and frightened people ran outside instead up stairs|
