Florida has produced so many, uh, unique individuals that I think it's about time the state gets its own topic.FL man flying KKK flag assures community: ‘We don’t beat up on f*ggots or blacks’http://s24.postimg.org/gmsgjxqfp/kkkmember.jpgA man in Boca Raton, Florida is flying a Ku Klux Klan (KKK) flag to recruit passersby to join the racist institution.Local 10 reporter Roger Lohse spoke to the man, who identified himself only as “Mr. Hayes,” yesterday and asked him why he’s flying a KKK flag above a “Members Wanted” sign.“As many people know, the white families are producing less children because the father and mother work and you have interracial marriages and gay marriages, so there are less and less white children being born every day,” he said. “So we’re against that.”He noted that flying this flag is “what this country is all about — freedom of speech.”[/break1]rawstory.com/rs/2014/03/05/fl-man-flying-kkk-flag-assures-community-we-dont-beat-up-on-fggots-or-blacks/]http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/03/05/f ... or-blacks/?

The Florida news source wants you to know he's a new yorker. ;) Hayes said he moved to Florida from New York four years ago, yet this Yankee also flies a confederate flag.the noose doesn't mean anything in particular:He also said that people have the wrong idea about how his beliefs might motivate his actions. The noose hanging in his front yard is indicative of nothing, because according to Hayes, the KKK does not condone violence.[/break1]local10.com/news/west-boca-raton-man-proudly-flies-kkk-confederate-flags/24803296]http://www.local10.com/news/west-boca-r ... s/24803296

Well, Florida does seem to be the nation's vacuum cleaner of crazy people and cranks. Other more famous transplants: Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter.

Hayes wouldn't give his real name, and another report (with same photo) says 'Carolyn Jones' is the occupant of the mobile home. But it also sez there are two homes with the kkk flag flying within a block of each other:Not one, but two homes in a West Boca Raton neighborhood has flags associated with the Ku Klux Klan in their front yards. The mobile homes, located within a block of each other, west of 441, along Sandalfoot Boulevard, in unincorporated southwestern Palm Beach County, are raising neighbors' eyebrows.Outside one of the mobile homes there is also a sign that says, "Members Wanted." Carolyn Jones lives inside that home. She said, "If you want to join, you join. If you don't, you don't. It's not for everyone, and everyone joins for their own reasons. It's not to be mean or show hate."No show of hate according to Jones' home, but her home also has a noose outside in the front yard. "There's not burning of the crosses when you join. There's no hate, you know. You don't have to have prejudice or anything else to join. It's none of that. It's nothing about that," said Jones.Asked if she would you allow a Hispanic or an African American person to join, she responded, "Umm ... I don't really know much about it, but I don't think so. African American community they have their beliefs and their own little things. Muslims, they have their synagogue and mosque and everything else. Why can't a white person have this?" said Jones.Several blocks from Jones, another home displays the same KKK flag and a warning which read: "Warning: Mess with the Klan and the results will be ugly! Knights of the Ku Klux Klan."[/break1]cbs12.com/news/top-stories/stories/vid_13775.shtml]http://www.cbs12.com/news/top-stories/s ... 3775.shtmlJones sez they're not members of the same group. How can that be?When asked why he displays the noose out front, Hayes responded, "That's because I don't have a big tree in my backyard to hang it from."Hayes, who said he is unemployed, said he would also be putting his noose back up Wednesday."Just a prop, just an ornament for my lawn," he said. "It's just an ornament, it doesn't symbolize anything."Just like people put bowling balls in the gardens and hang windchimes and such. And Hayes wants you to know he's a patriot. That's why he flys that flag:Hayes, who called the flags his "patriotic duty," said he has no plans to stop.

a neighbor posted in a martial arts forum. I get home tonight and there are news vans across the street. Go ask the hot anchorette whats going on. She tells me my neighbor has been flying large KKK flags and a noose all day. But she supports his free speech rights lol. I do too although I vehemently oppose the message itself. "Why is there a noose out front here?""Because I dont have a tree big enough in my backyard."These tools tried to talk to me one time when I was walking up to Publix. Guy is like "how do you like being white?" I replied "its working out fine so far" Put my headphones back in and continued on. Maybe he will add a nazi flag for maximum rustled jimmies[/break1]mixedmartialarts.com/thread/2295501/My-neighbor-on-TV-with-a-KKK-flag-in-Boca-Raton/?pc=30]http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/thread/ ... ton/?pc=30

Muslims have synagogues AND mosques?The ignorance burns.... ](*,)Ahhh... that explains the animosity between Jews and Muslims. The Muslims will not let the Jews gather in their Muslim synagogues. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Florida man accidentally shoots passing 12-year-old, then immediately shoots himselfA Florida man claims he was showing a friend how to clean a gun when he discharged the weapon and struck a 12-year-old girl in a passing car, then accidentally shot himself.The Orlando Sentinel reported that 60-year-old Ventura Santos Matteo was in his garage on Friday when his gun-safety demonstration went awry.Matteo accidentally fired the Sig Sauer pistol, which struck a 12-year-old girl in a passing car. The bullet penetrated the door and struck her in the right upper arm. Her younger brother, who was riding in the back seat, was unharmed.Startled by the gunshot, Matteo then discharged a second bullet into his left thigh.[/break1]rawstory.com/rs/2014/03/05/florida-man-accidentally-shoots-passing-12-year-old-then-immediately-shoots-himself/]http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/03/05/f ... s-himself/Since this is Florida, and he didn't shoot a ceiling or anything like that, police see no reason to press charges.

There are so many news stories that start with "A Florida man ... (did something stupid)" that someone created a twitter account http://twitter.com/_FloridaMan, where links are posted to those aforementioned news stories.

"No one deserves to die over a chicken foot."





A Florida man apparently beat his roommate to death after the roommate got mad at him for taking a chicken foot from him.





---





According to police, Calderon had been cooking food and became angry when Jugo took the chicken foot from the frying pan.





The two men fought over the supposed stolen chicken foot, and the argument eventually came up again later in the day.





---





Benjamin Calderon leaves a mother, two brothers, a sister and children. The family is devastated, and they have lingering questions that they hope police will eventually answer, Bolivar Calderon said.





"No one deserves to die over a chicken foot," he said.

The experience awaiting Great Grey: fish strike on airplane.Jet aborts takeoff after 'fish strike' at Tampa Air Force baseMar. 5, 2014   A jet departing from a Florida military base had to abort its takeoff because of a "fish strike."Officials from the MacDill Air Force Base near Tampa tellThe Tampa Tribune a Gulfstream G-IV jet being flown by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) hit "a 9-inch sheepshead" fish in the incident, which occurred in September.Bird strikes, of course, are a significant safety concern at airports across the nation.

Yankees were the ones that instituted the "1 drop Law" during Reconstruction. Overnight, American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk went from being considered white,















he was Creole, (Father was German, Mother was Haitian) to "Black".





There were Draft riots in NYC during the Civil War. Northerners weren't all abolitionists.
