LIGHTS OUT at Super Bowl – Third Quarter Halted

This is what happens when you hold a Super Bowl in a former homeless shelter.
The lights went out the Super Dome tonight.

    Do we blame Obama? The left blames Bush for everything.

    Did Obama skeet shoot the transformer?

    Some fans did the wave to pass the time. Players milled around on the sidelines, some took a seat on the bench, other on the field. A few of the Ravens threw footballs around.

    Officials gathered on the field and appeared to be talking to stadium personnel. Finally, the lights came back on throughout the stadium, which appeared to have been operating on auxiliary power.

    There was no immediate explanation for the power failure, which apparently was limited to the Superdome. The lights were on along the main thoroughfare outside the stadium.

    Crazy things have been happening here for going on more than a week now.

    That’s what happens when you don’t spend moany to update and maintain our infrastructure.

    Nothing more tax cuts won’t solve, right?

    btw, you know Obama is the second coming,
    and as soon as they figure out how to reveal
    that “truth”, many will believe.. too many.. 😡

    New Orleans has been ‘devastated’ by Hurricane Katrina and is in ‘recovery’ mode. This is just more evidence that it needs more government funds to rebuild its infrastructure. It is predominantly an African-American ‘chocolate’ city and many of its residents receive life saving assistance in the way of food stamps and subsidized housing. The paltry amount of federal funds it has received since Katrina has been linked by many outside observers as evidence OF RACISM by Republicans who control the House of Representatives.

    For immediate release by His Honor, Mayor Mitch Landrieu (D)

    Sorry. Forgot to add.

    I think it is disgraceful that during the biggest sports spectacle in the greatest country in the world we can’t keep the lights on.

    Obama’s fault, right? And as a direct result of too much govt spending and regulation, right?

    Time to cut taxes. And more guns.

    Did you put all those words together yourself? All three, one-sentence paragraphs? Did you think that comparison up on your own, ya know, about playing football in a homeless shelter? Such fourth column, sophisticated reporting. Your education wasn’t wasted on you.

    Jiminy crickets will wonders never cease?

    habit must date back the the good old slave days.. / :-( s/

    [The fact is large numbers of free Negroes owned black slaves; in fact,
    in numbers disproportionate to their representation in society at large.
    In 1860 only a small minority of whites owned slaves. According to the
    U.S. census report for that last year before the Civil War, there were
    nearly 27 million whites in the country. Some eight million of them lived
    in the slaveholding states.

    The census also determined that there were fewer than 385,000
    individuals who owned slaves . Even if all slaveholders had been
    white, that would amount to only 1.4 percent of whites in the
    country (or 4.8 percent of southern whites owning one or more
    slaves).

    [..]

    According to federal census reports, on June 1, 1860 there were nearly
    4.5 million Negroes in the United States, with fewer than four million of
    them living in the southern slaveholding states. Of the blacks residing in
    the South, 261,988 were not slaves. Of this number, 10,689 lived in New
    Orleans. The country’s leading African American historian, Duke University
    professor John Hope Franklin, records that in New Orleans over 3,000 free
    Negroes owned slaves, or 28 percent of the free Negroes in that city.]
