General Off-Topic Board / Re: Election 2008
« on: February 23, 2007, 02:52:50 PM »
i know that a lot of people are on this Barack Obama kick & i for one would LOVE to see a black person be elected as president BUT...are we just fooling ourselves here???

i was in SC for 5 days.  my sister & 2 of her friends ventured out to this new club called "V" in Florence.  when we reached the club we were stopped just before the entrance by 2 white males who advised us that the club was a "members only" club that required a $240 pymt for the yr w/a $20 deposit & a 24hr waiting period.

silly me, i'm from NY so i actually thought that this was possible & asked why the HE double hockey sticks would anyone go for that.  my sis (who's lived in SC for 16 yrs now) & her friends (who were born & raised there) let me know that it's just the clubs way of saying is a WHITES ONLY club.  UNEFFING BELIVEABLE!!!!  I'm thinking this can't possibly be true.  we're in 2007, segregation doesn't exist, right?  but after hearing about the numerous clubs that have the same "members only" policy from all 3 of them & ending up a a "black club" that was pretty much dilapidated & way on the other side of town, i realized, there are still places in this country that choose to separate people.

i guess i'm a true NY'er b/c all i could think is...if you're a club owner, shouldn't your 1st concern be MAKING MONEY???? who cares whether the crowd is "mixed" - as they call it down in Florence, SC or not???

it was a VERY RUDE AWAKENING!!! 

so it leads me to pose this question?  if there are still places that are "members only" places, how is it even possible to believe that a black person or even a female for that matter will be elected president in 2008.

i DO NOT have the tolerance for little kids anymore!!!  i can be around the for so long w/o wanting to curse them out.

i get along much better w/tweens & teens now.  although they can be quite annoying in their own way.

I'm going on a huge road trip over spring break...driving about 48 hours total so obviously i'll be bringing my ipod with music in it, but i though to mix it up some comedians might be good.

Any suggestions besides Dane Cook, Chris Rock, Mitch, Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappelle......

Also if anyone else has any cool ways to pass time while in a car that would be great as well. 

Todd Barry, George Carlin, Lewis Black, Eugene Mirman

these are 2 of my favorites.  i just finished Lewis Black's book.  hilarious!  if the book is on tape, buy it!!
i also like Jim Gaffigan (he's my #1 comedian right now).

I just ate half a box of Thin Mints.

Bitches.

I know!

I can't even look at a box of thin mints without eating the whole thing. Those and those peanut butter ones.

which ones?  the dosidos? (sandwich cookies)  mmmmm!
what about the shortbread cookies w/the chocolate on one side..... :P :P

I've sent the brit on a mission to find me Samosas (BTW - they were Caramel Delites when I sold them 20 years ago), but he has so far been unsuccessful.

I want some cookies, dammit!

you have to find the GS offices in you area, so you can go there & buy as many boxes or cases of cookies you want!!!

(not that i do that or anything)
