    It's a guy thing-they are ticked off and have no intention of playing second fiddle. Some of the 'luster' that they had hoped for in their pres campaigns was stolen by this rookie senator with little political experience, compared to their media/BS/political savvy.

    JJ said what he felt and his apology was pretty weird.....He starts to list 50 years of civil rights dates, marches and laws.

    What does that have to do with crumbing on someone you don't see eye to eye with?

    -----------------------------------


    You are dead on right with your reading of JJ. Talk about egos, his is
    completely over the top.

    BO speaks out about black fathers who are absent from their childrens
    lives & the effect that has on the Black community, and JJ wants to
    attack BO for it. At least BO speaks the truth, just like Bill Cosby does.

    And that's why BC gets a short shrift from the public.

    The one thing that people do not want to hear is the truth. People do not want to hear about the problems in their background/ethnicity/group.

    Instead of bucking up and admitting to a problem, it's far easier to claim that you are being mistreated and misunderstood. It's everyone else's problem, not yours.

    In today's newspaper a woman is suing the LAPD for shooting here husband because he was black.

    Do you think that crashing into a tree, refusing to get out of the car, then running from the vehicle with something that looked like a gun MIGHT have had something to do with his death?

    Probably not.

    Bring Taser To Every Speech.

    Do you remember "Don't tase me, bro?"

    They should warn people that asking stupid questions like "What do you think about Viagra?" should be met with either a beating, pepper spray or a taser in the butt. Hey jerkweed, do you talk to your parents that way? This law will and can be repealed when the candidate's kids start making them look human during a press interview.

    ---------

    As for JJ wanting to cut off some of BO's body parts....I think that MO already has them displayed on the fireplace mantle.

    I wonder where McCain's reside?

    Hey, they asked HC's daughter about her father's conduct & she wasn't
    even a candidate for office.

    And JM's body parts are in his wife's purse. She has all the money in that
    house.

    Notice that Cindy never carries a purse.....She probably needs one of those rolling suitcases!

    ------------------

    I stand corrected on the "Viagra" question.

    Again, the media feeds you the edited version of the question and answer that JM was asked earlier today.

    The newsheads all made it sound like someone had asked the PRESUMPTIVE-who thought of that stupid phrase?-candidate, JM about why some health plans cover the costs of Viagra and not BCPs.

    With no presentation of WHY Mac was left stumbling around for an answer, the question was left to my imagination-A scenario like the BC debacle, "Boxers or briefs, Mister President?".

    It wasn't when I saw the total clip this afternoon.....about 4 hours after the news channels were showing a stuttering JM trying to find an answer.

    IT was a fair question.

    A few days ago the front of the El lay Daily News had a pic of BO and the Mayor of the town doing the 'fist bump'.

    Because I know that no one on PT is "hood" or has street cred let me explain the other meaning of the fist bump.

    On it's own, when one person makes that motion, it's an crude street signal meaning "procreation".

    The FB is some kind of 'cool' greeting that you see on street corners and places where there is no formality.

    I had to laugh when I saw the furor over the cover of the New Yorker.
    You started the fist bump and the other problems for yourself, Yuk it up! The O's are looking for that little bit of cool that will endear them to everyman and everywoman.

    When it shows up as "satire", the O's choke back any comments, instead leaving it to the handlers to be indignant. When you open up a door, always make sure you can get it closed, lest someone see where you hang out.

    LOL, didn't people get upset when Mohammed was portrayed as a cartoon.
    I think we have another uprising because a 'god' was depicted as a pen and ink caricature.....

    ------------

    In another thread, its funny when you try to get a sewage plant named after a politician. But, when you hold the carnival mirror to another politico, their spleen bleeds and the leeches stuck to their shins start to complain.

    It's racist, UnAmerican, hateful! It's the same freedom of speech we all freely love and flaunt-but you can't laugh about either idiot who wants to be prez.....

    Get over your bad selves. 50 percent of the county will hate the person you vote for in November. I don't take it personally, but someone else will.

    Um, we have another person who wants to be prez.... Bob Barr deserted the Rep party and has been popping up hither and yon running as the Liberitarian canidate. You remember them, they are the Ross Perot people.
    I'm so fed up with both parties he's starting to look better all the time.

    Silly me!!! I thought the fist bump was just something replacing the high five.
    You know opening the entire hand is soooooo exhausting and all!!!

    Ross Perot did not run on the Libertarian Party - in 1992 the Presidential candidate for the Libertarians was Andre Marrou.

    Libertarians believe the answer to America's political problems is the same commitment to freedom that earned America its greatness: a free-market economy and the abundance and prosperity it brings; a dedication to civil liberties and personal freedom that marks this country above all others; and a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace, and free trade as prescribed by America's founders.

    It is the third largest political party in the United States.

    My husband is a Libertarian. After watching Bob Barr on one of the Sunday talk shows, he doesn't look too bad to me. Certainly no worse than either of the other candidates.

    Sorry the info I heard was wrong then. They said that Ross Perot was the first to run on the Libertarian Party ticket.
    I just did a search and he ran on Reform Party, not Libertarian.
    All I know for sure, is after he ran, we can no longer be Independents here in KS.
    When I had to re-register after I moved, I could no longer be an Independent. This was in 2006. Now I am Unafiliated!
    (i still consider myself as an independent no matter what my voter registeration card says)


    By the way, who is this T. Boone person I keep seeing ads from?

    I would be furious if I couldn't register as an Independent. Bet the ACLU could help with that.

    With Richard, I never know what to believe!!!!

    Been watching the news again. I really need to stop that. It's so bad for my blood pressure. I can't understand why it's so hard for congress to grasp the fact that we need to drill for oil here and we need to look for alternative sources too. Ok, so if it takes 5 years or more to get the oil we'd better get off our behinds and start NOW!!! What would we do if our forgeign oil suppliers decide to cut the supply off for some reason?

    Why not, would Richard lie to us? He did say it is a form of "street talk" and I don't think either one of us is savvy in that area.

    Come out and spend a week in da hood, ya know what I'm saying?
    Any of you homies want to come out to the East Side and roll with the Rickster?

    LOL, that sounded really stupid!


    Seriously, I worked with a guy that had quite a few sales reps in to our office.
    If a good looking woman came in he'd look over at me and do the 'fist pump' as a little sign of "female appreciation"!

    When loading the gun in a tank, the loaders take the round, place it in the breech and use their fists to ram/seat it before the breech is closed.

    "Ramming it home".

    There are some things that should remain mysteries to all of you upstanding, taxpaying citizens. And they are not suitable for print here.

    If anyone noticed the price of oil went down a few cents after the hated GWB announced that he'd lift the ban on drilling in the Gulf.

    But good old NP will do her best to keep us all down. MORON.
