Thread: Politics and religion.

  1. #1156
    This reminds me of what happened at the grocery story last week. A man came up to me at the meat counter and asked if the store sells lamb. I said "Sure, here it is" and I pointed to it. He thanked me and I said "You're welcome", we smiled at each other and both of us tried to leave but kept getting in each other's way. He finally said "I'm sorry. You're not in my way, is it?" It made me chuckle and he chuckled, too, because he knew that he probably didn't say it right. We all fumble for words now and then and probably use a word inappropriately but I get your meaning, RICHARD. Some people just cannot express themselves and public speaking is the last thing that they should be doing.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    GWB was a doofus and he knew it.

    BO is a doofus and he doesn't know it.

    WTF cares about how anyone pronounces New Cleh ear? The end result is mass destruction and -like the old bumper sticker said - a ruined day.

    BO cannot think on his feet but is very eloquent, with notes and a teleprompter.

    -----------------------------
    Seriously,

    Then next time BO does a speech and starts to stammer his way thru the copy, play a drinking game while you watch.

    Drink for every Um, Ah and Uh.

    I can handle booze, but was in danger of losing my liver in the 15 minutes+
    that I played, plus I got way more effed up than I planned.

    GWB and his speeches were more a throwback to Yogi Berra, fat ladies singing and getting to the fork in the road and taking it and doing that deja vu thing, over and over again.

    My peeve with La Mujer del Momento, is her fracturing the english language with the wealth of education she has.


    GWB was a bobo that flew airplanes for a while, you just have to learn to land and take off. Most of the time what happens in between is out of a pilot's hands.

    As the joke goes, You have to worry when the pilot flying the plane says, "Oh Shiat!"

    Other than that? Who cares what he says!

    I have to invoke the spirit of Billy Mayes, for reasons that will be made clear in a moment?

    I want my politicians to be more like Billy Mayes, Why?


    He makes me feel like the stuff he sold was important in my life.

    He told me that it worked, never mentioned the down side of the product-Hmmm, Notice he never mentioned TAXES, just shipping and handling!

    He'd give me two of the items, I just had to pay a little extra for S&H!

    He guaranteed it for life, If I didn't like the item I could send it back, and I had lifetime refills - for only a small, you guessed it!- S&H!

    But never TAXES. The dude put his name on some cool stuff and other crap that was nothing but pieces of shiat!

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

    The only thing that the these hearings are doing is offering us more crap from our reps that they put their name on and little else......

    No guarantees, no refills, opportunity to send stuff back, or get a refund.

    Caveat emptor (Thanks, STE! ) And a Boom Shaka Lakka to you all!

    Poor Billy put his name on 'his' products because if they didn't sell, he didn't make money.

    The snakes on the "hill" just sell stuff and really don't care about any guarantees regarding their products.....They will keep their cushy jobs, until they get caught stalking, going overseas for some action or find out that the escort they hired is really a hooker!


    God bless us and America too. We place way too much attention to the "First fill in the skin type/background in America" and do not place enough attention on the qualifications of that individual.

    We'll break all the land speed records to get where we think we need to go.

    If we crash and burn on the track?

    You guys go clean up the mess, I was all against THAT can o' worms.



    God bless ya, Billy!

    Are you serious??? I don't see how you can believe that. Give me a
    direct quote or other example of SS "fracturing" the English language.
    (I'm serious)

    I think she speaks "Lawyer" fluently. and after all, she is being questioned
    on matters of law?

    And on behalf of the majority of those living in California...you are welcome for Ms. Feinstein....that is why she keeps getting reelected.

    She refuses to go "rhetorical", but isn't that the whole idea of law? Going over a set of rules to protect us?

    It's like those stupid laws in Podunk, California.

    Let's make a rule that says, "Any person caught fishing from the open roof of a vehicle traveling over a bridge shall be subject to 250 dollar fine and/or 30 days in jail."

    Let's pretend something is going to happen, so we need to make a law IN CASE SOMETHING DOES HAPPENS!!!

    I've talked to lawyers.

    You have to get them drunk and slurring before you can really tell if they are serious.

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

    Do I have to go back over hours of stunned people speaking, IT's there, trust me.

    Blue,


    Now that little kid is what it's all about.

    Throw a whole bunch of children into a room and they will figure how things work.

  10. If you compare Sotomayor's “performance” to the last two, Alito and Roberts – she is doing as well as they did -- a bland performance from all three. It is a grueling process that I could not tolerate. I give anyone who can get through it without lunging over the table and shaking the stuffing out of a few senators a great deal of credit.

    I hate the grandstanding of both parties in the process and my admiration for her has grown as she has graciously and judiciously withstood the assault. I liked the spunk that Ginsberg showed in her responses and would like to see more of that in Sotomayor. But then Ginsberg did not have to be wary of the shibboleth of “fiery Latina”.

    I secretly think those old white men on the panel would have their
    boxers in a knot over any "wise women "who dared think they were the
    equal (if not better) than them. Then you add "Latina" to the mix
    and they sputter in rage at the thought.

    What about a semi skilled white woman?
    SP maybe?


    I find your 'boxers in a knot' comment offensive and ask that you apologize.
    Barbara Boxer is MY senator and I have to get her back, only because she's from Cah Lee Fuh Nee Ah!


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


    Um, Mr. prez?

    I am one of the naysayers you mentioned today.

    Pay attention.....I'll speak slowly.


    I want HCR, If it takes a few years and is done well, I have no problems with that. MY concern is you spending money on BS reform, just to shut the detractors up. Reform starts small, otherwise you have to reform the reform later on.

    Assault on Sotomayor? The softballs they are lobbing at her hardly classify as an assault. Has she actually answered any of the questions, or has she talked her way around all of them? All I saw was alot of rambling non answers.

    She doesnt understand the difference between self defence and vigilantism, her rulings on the Second Amendment show she doesnt have a clue what a Federal Right is. She made a sexist, racist comment a few years ago that she stands by today. A discrimination case she ruled on is heading the the SCOTUS, the rambling and stammering about that would drive anybody nuts. She couldnt or wouldnt answer questions about abortion.

    I guess I shouldnt be suprised some people would be easily impressed.

    What the heck is Franken doing on the pannel anyway? Why are they even having a confirmation hearing for that matter, are they just going through the motions?


    ETA: SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas got raked over the coals by the media, the same media that is dismissing and ignoring anything negative about Mrs Sotomayor. Is it OK to question the character of a Black Justice but not OK to question the charcter of a Hispanic Justice? Is it possible the media is pandering to the POTUS and hispandering to a racial group for ratings?


    shibboleth
    shib⋅bo⋅leth [shib-uh-lith, ‑leth]
    a common saying or belief with little current meaning or truth.
