Thread: Bill Cosby weighs in on Zimmerman verdict...

  1. #11
    I became a fan of Bill's will in the Navy. We listened to his comedian routines on records. Bill is a VERY talented guy. When I was getting discharged I was sent to the base in Philadelphia, PA. I was there for 2 weeks with a bunch of other guys who were being discharged. There was a black guy who daily came into the room where we had to hang out. We got to talking to him and found out that he was Bill's father. He was a great guy too. When we asked him about the routines that Bill did. Bill's father said that ALL the characters in Bill's stories were real people but Bill did tend to stretch the truth in those stories. We all had a good laugh about that.
    I still like and have respect for Bill Cosby. Bill made a lot long boring days at sea some what enjoyable. For that I will not throw Bill under any bus!

    When did Zimmerman confront Martin?

    I can hear the Chicken Heart that ate the big town, I can hear Cal Shelby sending him his Cobra, I can hear why we have air, I can hear Old Weird Harlold. My records have not been played for two decades, I bought them in the 1960's.

    Media says he did so it MUST be true
    Sheeple at work yesterday said when Zimmerman called the police, he said to them "if you don't come investigate then ill shoot him" really?!?!?!?!
    I had to set him straight...
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, wasn't it Trayvon that confronted Zimmerman? Zimmerman just watched and recorded to the police... well until he got his head bashed in by Trayvon.

  8. I will admit to feeling a bit of power when I first started carrying but not cocky by any means. It quickly faded and now I'm more nervous of having it getting noticed (printing) than anything else but only when I carry concealed in Connecticut.

    My wife will tell you that when I began carrying, I didn't become any such thing. If anything, it has made me more aware of my duties as a citizen to really toe the line. I am no more power and control hungry than when I began carrying.

    Bill Cosby weighs in on Zimmerman case
    Bill Cosby. Hmmmmm. Bill was part of the racist accusations by Al Sharpton against whites claiming Tawana Brawley was rapes by white cops and the white district attorney in Dutchess County, NY. Cosby paid the legal bill. It was later determined Tawana Brawley made up the entire incident. Sharpton, Brawley and the attorneys were successfully sued for the carnage they caused. Brawley wouldn't pay and her wages were garnished. Her attorneys were disbarred over the incident.

    I also enjoy Cosby. I listened to his albums when I was a kid, and have watched nearly every program he has been on. I am not suggesting throwing him under the bus. I am simply saying that I happen to disagree with him on this statement.

    Yea like cops!!
