I don't give a rats ass where he goes to drink a few beers. It seems that everybody has lost interest in why this is even being discussed. Only a tool does what he did. He left the bar, hit another vehicle, caused damage (no matter how minor), and left the scene. If the guy whose car got damaged hadn't contacted the media about this incident, he wouldn't have gotten anywhere. The fact that the HPD and the DA ( with all the other troubles in their lap currently ), wanted to cover this up, or not bother with it, is what the people that pay their salaries ought to be discussing.

that has been discussed. now it appears the police are back into investigating it because people blew their gaskets about this guy getting off hitting a vehicle and getting away with it. since it has been discussed and things are now being done about it the story has become about the people involved again.

and i would never listen to that type of "news" show, but sure okay he doesn't bash on homosexuals. but from what people have told me he regularly bashes on minorities, protections for minorities and that whole gambit of politics. gays, lesbians and transgenders are a minority class that is fighting for the same type of protections he regularly mocks. i think that is allowable for gay people to be mad at him for

He doesn't mock anyone, he's very much against illegal immigration so of course the pro-illegal crowd is going to try using the race card against him. He also rails against SJL on a daily basis but she's the most ignorant and worthless politician in TX, she deserves it. The people who are "telling" you about his show likely hate him and want to bash him, try listening to his show on your own once.

It's a big state with a lot of politicians. She shares that title with a lot of other politicians. It's kinda part of the job requirements. A huge chunk of the voting population are ignorant and worthless. Who best to represent them than someone just like them.

okay i just looked it up. people who don't think this guy is offensive

regarding a religious group building a church in NYC - "I hope someone blows it up." Yes he was referring to a mosque. makes that statement okay to some people. that is why i don't listen to the show. that statement makes me think what people have told me is correct

look at his wikipedia page. he isn't a first timer to controversy

Watch the one with Morgan Freeman, one of the best sound clips I've heard.

this was the mosque being built across the street from the 9/11 site. Not just some mosque in NY.

By mosque across the street do you mean the community center two blocks away?
