yeah, dem's would probably like him to run, then pull the racist crap in the general election. But I don't think he is ready for "prime time". He's already flubbed up a few times, as far as giving non-PC answers, like his recent flub on gays. He may have been partly correct, but he probably can't get past an answer like that, as far as a presidential run goes.

Just a sampling... Joke 1 implies that no black man can hold a job for more than 4 years. Joke 3 was an image depicting a black man as a chimp. Joke 4 implies all children of black women are criminals and society would thank black women for having abortions. That's not blatant racism? What the hell, in your mind, is blatant racism?

I can't wait to hear the slurs when/if Ben Carson decides to run. All the previous stuff will probably pale in comparison.

Vile and disgusting "humor" about blacks is fine, as long as it comes from Democrats against blacks that have accomplishments and are Republican. Or so it would seem, given how frequently it happens. Condi Rice or Thomas Sowell are viciously attacked for leaving the Democrat "plantation". All big city mayors that have enriched a few blacks like Sharpton or Jackson, but done little for the black…

I wonder why the article detailed the Black jokes but not the Muslim references?

Speaker Madigan schedules concealed carry hearings

The House Judiciary Committee will have public hearings Feb. 19 at the state Capitol and Feb. 22 in Chicago; State Rep. Jil Tracy is a member of the committee

WTAD-AM (AP) Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan is seeking public input on concealed carry of firearms and gun safety at two hearings later this month.

The Chicago Democrat announced Thursday that the Judiciary Committee will have public hearings Feb. 19 at the state Capitol and Feb. 22 in Chicago.

Madigan says the hearings will allow gun-rights advocates, gun-control supporters and police to "offer their views and argue their cases" on the issues.

A federal court rejected the state's concealed-carry ban in December and demanded the Illinois Legislature adopt some form of firearms possession.

Madigan says hearings are important after the court decision and the December school massacre in Connecticut.

Concealed-carry legislation that narrowly failed in 2011 has been re-introduced in the Illinois House.

The Springfield hearing is scheduled for noon Feb. 19 in Room 114 of the Capitol. The Chicago hearing is 10 a.m. Feb. 22 at 10 a.m. in the sixth floor committee room of the Michael A. Bilandic Building.

Available seating for the hearings will be limited, and those who wish to attend will be required to show official state identification and pass through strict security.
