Selection Process

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

I DON'T GET IT

There are plenty of republicans chomping at the bit to run on a presidential ticket. None of them would help Romney with voters, but there are people ready to pay the ultimate political price.

The GOP does not have a running mate problem. They have a presidential cadidate problem.

Think about it blackwater48,who do the "Big Money Boyz think can add to the stink of this campaign? This whole thing(campaign) looks like the"good-cop bad-cop"scenario we see on tv. BHO is gonna be re-elected,no doubt,but the "wedge" is being driven deeper every day. Both parties are contributing to the divide in our country.

Gov Romney is careful and thorough, and so will his veep selection be.

And obastard picked a wizard when he chose Biden as VP. Biden has got to be the dumbest SOB than has ever laid foot in Washington DC. That also tells much about you fools that support obastard and biden.

No one has drawn a shorter straw than the American people with Obama's socialist policies. Comrade Bennett is an Obama clone.

The VP slot is usually offered to someone who can complement but not overshadow your strengths as a presidential candidate. McCain blew that one big time. Since Romney's only strength is his wealth, about any right-winger would complement him here. The next option will be to find someone who won't overshadow him which will be difficult since about anyone will look outstanding next to him.

I would suggest the GOP make sure that Piyush "Bobby" Jindal shaves every morning, because even 5 o'clock shadow makes him look like an insurgent, and we know that would turn off the base. Clever how they even have the news media pronouncing his last name 'jindle', as opposed to 'gin doll', which is probably how his parents pronounce it. It would be fun to suddenly see the tolerant side of joneses, et al, if Willard chose him as a running mate.

I've got a couple days off and i'm going to do whatever the hell i want. I finally have the time to catch up on some articles i had earmarkred to read.

This AM i started reading Mays VF "THE CAMORRA NEVER SLEEPS", By William Langewiesche.I have to share this part of the aticle, its not boring and this shi. is really going on.

Within the community he was known mythically as "The Man". He was the phantom, the unseen power who had transformed the northern districts of Naples into Europe's greatest drug emporium, but also employed many thousands of people and had effecively banished street crime from Secondighano and Scampia. By the mid-1990s, rape,robbery, assult, and theft had all but disappeared.

People say that the difference between Di Lauro and a saint was that Di Lauro delivered the miracles faster.

At his peak he was importing heavy loads of cocaine from Columbia ( through Turkey, Eastern Europe, and the Balkans), and hashish from Marocco ( again through Spain). These substances were not smuggled in through the port ( where costums officials were too greedy.) but were delivered overland by truck or car to Naples. Once in Secondigliano, the drugs were diluted and fed into the booming piazzas,as well as to an extensive wholesale network in Italy,and Germany and France. Meanwhile Di Lauro was manufacturing counterfeit brand-name goods for the United States, Louis Vutton, Dolce&Gabbana, Varsace, Gucci, Prada- that sort of stuff.

Something dfferent and a good light read.

blackwater 48....No one could be as big a problem as a candidate as Obama. He has been a complete failure and is stuck at 46% in the polls.

You emotional, mentally ill liberals wouldn't know reality if it bit you on the nose. Obama is a loser. No experience, huge deficits, 1,000,000 jobs lost is his presidency, gas price have doubled, regulation is stifling job growth, and if he gets in again he will try to raise taxes. Not to mention that he is a smug, arrogant ass with an average intellect. It is no wonder you liberals think he is so smart because the rest of you are dumber than he is.

Romney is at 46% but people like me who don't trust that Romney is conservative enough are holding back their decision. Believe me, when it comes down to choosing even an old shoe over Obama, the independents will go for Romney.

You libs underestimate the conservatives absolute loathing of Obama.

Pinkos like you only give lip service and hand out government "free stuff" to buy votes from the groups you mentioned. By the way, I think blacks and women hate us white guys too. They always want something free from us. Free this, Free that....

You may be right Jack. There are many trying to do much. But I haven't seen from Soros what I have seen from the Kochs. It could be that one side is better at hiding it. But then that would beg the question of why the other side isn't hiding it. It is evident that the Kochs have advocated, (and paid for) fascist leaning policies. But given their history and origin, one should expect that. I cannot find that evidence with Soros, (yet). So I am going to reserve my opinion on Soros until a later date.

There's not a chance in hell that the Retardican base would allow a Mormon/Moderate to lead their party for a possible 8 yrs if elected. They would rather sacrifice another 4 yrs under President Obama. Obama has this election in the bag. He underscored that point when he related a message to Medvedev to advise Putin to give him some space until the election is over. You Retardicans on here are as bright as a thug looking at an investment portfolio. No worries...I'm willing to coach you guys.

Until we all back off of this two party fight, we will not be able to see what is being done to our country. I hear the Republicans calling names regarding the same arguments the Democrats are fighting back with. It is the same thing on both sides. And that is what we will see when Romney picks a VP running mate. How else could they have the dream of getting a Mormon elected President in a 60+% christian society? They will make the fight uglier and louder, while they sneak what they want in the back door. Oddly, I think what they want is Obama. Look at how the Republicans have been eating their own. They have tripped over themselves to look like idiots, almost like it is intentional. I don't think the Republican leaders know how to make any correction for what George Bush (or his masters) did. Which means that they don't see how anyone else could either. So, they make it as bad as possible so at least no one else can look good. They drudge up draconian measures and basically yell fire. That is not acceptable, but I do think that is what is happening.

You can tax the rich till the cows come in and it will not solve the deficit problem even if it was used for that reason—which it will not be. Then he would come after everybody else. You do not see the whole picture and you are dumb, excuse me, ignorant as dirt!

I would like to buy you for how smart you really are and sell you for how smart You Really Think You Are! I could make a nice profit.

The O’s policies are really doing well in the economy/jobs department, aren’t they! The numbers are fudged. The figures do not count those who have given up and no longer looking for work. If they did, the jobless rate would be 10-11% at least.

Retardicans and their Tea-Party hit men/thugs are looking for an ultra-conservative with southern Christian values that can unite the Retardican base.

You say Obama is lying to the voters of America due to a media gaff?? Wasn't it Bush who lied to the voters about WMDs in Iraq? I find that lie to be a hell of a lot worse than a so called lie from Obama about cooperation with Russia on a missile shield in Europe. My point is that Obama has it in the bag.

The majority of present-day Democrats don't know what they are. They don't understand the issues, can't even identify the major politicians that shape our government, and have no cohesive philosophy.

So many Democrats, principally the self-professed ultra liberal ones, don't even understand the definition of the terms they are dealing with. For example, if someone is touting a new government program, all they have to do to lure the clueless, hapless Liberal is to present the idea as being the fulfillment of social justice, that it is a program of generosity. Libs eat this stuff up, but they don't realize what is being put before them is pure Socialism.

Soviet dictator Khrushchev once observed: "We can't expect the American people to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."

"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." - Norman Thomas

You may think I am being dismissive of Democrats, but in my experience, Conservatives think, Liberals just feel. I once had a heated argument with a Liberal. When I produced a copy of the Constitution and conclusively proved that what he was talking about was not written there, he didn't admit that he was wrong. He just shot back, "Oh yeah? Well......... it should be!"

That is the Liberal attitude in a nutshell. They don't care about reality. They believe that whatever they conceive as being best should be adopted, no matter whether it is sensible, practical, or if it is even Constitutional. Source(s): These are modern Democrats. Thomas Jefferson must be weeping.

Just how stupid are you? Do you think for one moment those Seal members could have gone into Pakistan without President Obama giving the final orders? President Obama said back in 2007 that if he had 'ACTIONABLE INTELLIGENCE' that Osama Bin Laden was in Pakistan and the Pakistan government refused to act he would do whatever it took to take him out. HE DID JUST THAT BY GIVING THE NAVY SEAL TEAM THE GREEN LIGHT TO CARRY OUT THEIR MISSION. THAT IS HIS JOB AS THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF. I look forward to the so-called can of whip @$$ you claim they are going to open up and even more so to any attempt by another SWIFT BOAT bunch of two-bit, slime ball, neo-con liars to do the same.

The Obozo hates those evil producer Republicans because they are preventing him from his mission of destroying the nation’s economy quickly so he can build the Libtard Utopia upon its ashes. On the other hand he loves them for carrying the load of his and the Federal government’s regal life style, also the beer and snacks for his voters."

You really are dumber than a 5th grader. Do you think by posting the headlines about the number in the LFPR is going to diminish the following headlines:

JOBLESS RATE DIPS TO 8.1%; ECONOMISTS FORCAST SLOW BUT STEADY JOB GROWTH.

Your useless, worthless attempt to diminish the fact the jobless rate is continuing to fall because THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE BEING HIRED IN THE PRESENT ECONOMY is pathetic. But keep spinning, it's what your kind does best.

You haven't posted anything that the ACTUAL MEMBERS OF NAVY SEAL TEAM SIX HAVE SAID ABOUT PRESIDENT OBAMA AND THE MISSION TO KILL OSAMA BIN LADEN. Instead you took some article from a rag owned and operated by Rupert Murdoch and tried to post it as if it was actually coming from members of the team that took Bin Laden out. When it was nothing of the sort BECAUSE NONE OF THE MEMBERS OF THAT PARTICULAR SEAL TEAM SIX HAVE MADE COMMENTS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER ABOUT THEIR MISSION. THEY WOULDN'T DO THAT!!!! For you to suggest they had is what I call UNPATRIOTIC and the kind of SLEAZE, SLIME BALL attempt to DISTORT THE TRUTH is the same kind of tactic you tried to use when you tried to insinuate the Secret Service was covering for President Obama in Columbia, Remember that? You aren't smart enough to get away with the crap you post since most of it is nothing more than childish gibberish and you get your faced "RUBBED IN POO" on a daily basis. Next time you think you are rubbing some "LIBTARD, OR FLEABAGGERS" face in poo, go check out the mirror and see who is really standing there with poo on his/her face.

On Feb. 1, 2009, newly elected President Obama told Matt Lauer of the Today Show that: “Look, I’m at the start of my administration. One nice thing about the situation I find myself in is that I will be held accountable.” Obama went on to say: “If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.” Join together Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Tea Party, put politics aside, rally behind Obama’s words, vote Obama out in 2012.

The majority of present-day Democrats don't know what they are. They don't understand the issues, can't even identify the major politicians that shape our government, and have no cohesive philosophy.

So many Democrats, principally the self-professed ultra liberal ones, don't even understand the definition of the terms they are dealing with. For example, if someone is touting a new government program, all they have to do to lure the clueless, hapless Liberal is to present the idea as being the fulfillment of social justice, that it is a program of generosity. Libs eat this stuff up, but they don't realize what is being put before them is pure Socialism.

Soviet dictator Khrushchev once observed: "We can't expect the American people to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."

"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." - Norman Thomas

You may think I am being dismissive of Democrats, but in my experience, Conservatives think, Liberals just feel. I once had a heated argument with a Liberal. When I produced a copy of the Constitution and conclusively proved that what he was talking about was not written there, he didn't admit that he was wrong. He just shot back, "Oh yeah? Well......... it should be!"

That is the Liberal attitude in a nutshell. They don't care about reality. They believe that whatever they conceive as being best should be adopted, no matter whether it is sensible, practical, or if it is even Constitutional. Source(s): These are modern Democrats. Thomas Jefferson must be weeping.

If you think for one moment I would bother addressing the ignorant, racist rants this poster puts out on a daily basis then you need as much help as he/she does. He is a birther and as far as I'm concerned that negated anything he had to say from day one. Not only that but he plagerizes others' words to fit his sick frame of what he considers to be President Obama's platform. He has no points other than what he has plagerized from someone else's work and when he can't make a point then he results to his usual racist, ignorant, BS about President Obama and his so-called $1million dollars spent to hide his college records.

Why would anyone take the time to address that kind of ignorance because it's ingrained and no matter what evidence is given to disprove his sick rants, he wouldn't see it regardless. He accuses others of being blind to "Obastard" no one is any blinder or more ignorant than he is. Now stick this with his platitudes.

Are you sure toes? You didn't post a link. Judging from your other posts I would call you a fool liar. But even a broken clock can be right once or twice, (depends on the clock). Do you have any proof or anything that is not right wing or romney to back up your claim?

It doesn't seem to hold water other than the Romney camp needing to make people think it had to be used when Obama was successful in having Bush's friend, (yes family friend) killed.

"Obama — who got Bin Laden and has had success against Al Qaeda even after banning torture — seems to have broken the old Dem-versus-GOP template on these issues. Romney — who will insist enhanced interrogation led to Bin Laden, and must be revived — would be arguing from the old template, and arguing for a true Bush restoration." http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/post/would-mitt-romney-revoke-obamas-executive-order-banning-torture/2012/05/03/gIQARTfGzT_blog.html

Now I will do what Joneses did and recycle my May 1st post and the silence was deafing on it.

See how you guys handle this one. Attack? No substance, no logic, and cherry picking.

Reaganomics is really supply side economics. Demand side economics has been proven NOT to work, because if taxing yourself into prosperity worked, then USSR, Cuba, and Venezuela would be economic powerhouses... But they just aren't. In fact they are pretty much failures. China is successful because it embraced capitalism. Due to increased regulation, a true supply side scenario in the US is not really possible, but the best example of supply side working is... When taxes are raised - revenue to the treasury tends to fall When taxes are lowered - revenue tends to rise. It's counter intuitive to a point, but it's the same concept that Toyota makes more money selling $15K cars than Rolls Royce makes selling $300K cars... Volume trumps the rate. In other words, lower taxes create more activity, which brings in more money Higher taxes stifle activity, which brings in less. This is the basic premise of Reaganomics. Reagan would have worked better if he'd had an unstoppable Republican majority in both Houses of Congress like Obama has had. But Reagan had a Democrat-controlled House and a lot of liberal GOP Senators to deal with. In order to get his priority policies enacted - re-buildup of the military, supply-side tax cuts, strongly opposing the Soviet Union around the world, etc - he had to compromise with the Democrats And, so, here we are today. Thirty years ago, we were the greatest creditor nation on Earth. We had everything. Today, we are the greatest debtor nation on Earth and communist China is our banker. And, we provide China with scrap metal so that it can supply the world and us with finished goods instead of the other way around.

Your godfather Ronald Reagan raised taxes 11 times while in office and George H.W. Bush said "Read my lips, no new taxes" and of course he soon learned right away that was not going to work. So what is your point? If you want to talk about China being the banker for the US. then you should talk about how George W. Bush ran up the deficit by using his charge card from China to fund two wars.

YOU AND THOSE LIKE YOU ARE THE ACCUSERS. IN ANY COURT IN THE U.S. THE BURDEN OF PROOF IS ALWAYS ON THE ACCUSERS NOT THE ACCUSED. President Obama released the LONG FORM OF HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE LAST YEAR but maybe in whatever sphere you occupy you didn't get the news. As for his college records are you kidding me? When Mitt Romney releases all of his TAX RECORDS for the last 12 years then you talk about President Obama's grades and college records. He's made a fool out of birthers once, that should have been enough but as I stated before for some IGNORANCE IS A WAY OF LIFE BECAUSE IT IS INGRAINED IN THEM FROM BIRTH.

BobMKE said... In 1982 Congress wanted to raise taxes and promised it would cut federal spending by $3 for every $1 in new taxes. Reagan agreed to this because they wouldn't mess with his defense budget. The new taxes went into effect and Congress never cut spending by a penny. The same thing happened to Bush I.

Read it and weep. Oblamea is using smoke and mirrors.

Washington, D.C., May 04, 2012 – The latest employment numbers from the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reflects the despair felt by America’s unemployed, with an increased number of working age Americans giving up on finding any kind of job.

Despite an official employment rate that dropped one-tenth of a percent and the addition of 115,000 jobs in April, America’s jobless have heard this story before and they know from personal experience those numbers are meaningless.

“In their lives, the only numbers that matter are the stack of unpaid bills, the balance in their dwindling checking account and the dollars they can scrape together for food and fuel,” said UCubed Executive Director Rick Sloan. “Their biggest fear is hitting a ZERO – zero income, a zero balance at the bank and zero bills paid.

“When the real number of unemployed workers increased in April by 295,000 to 26.7 million and the real unemployment rate became 16.6 percent, America’s jobless knew who the real zeros were,” said Sloan.

You know what? Not one person can point out one racist remark I have ever made. When you pathetic liberals use the race card it actually shows how inept you actually are and believe it or not most people are sick of this stupid failed tactic and see right through it. Even the blacks are sick of you lilly white racist liberals using the race card. Calling obastard obastard is not racist nor is calling pelosi a stupid communist bitch is being a chauvinist. I adamantly supported Herman Cain when you racist liberals were attacking him. I think obastard is a fool not because he is half black but because he actualy believes he can trun this great country of America into another failed communist country. I simply disagree with obastard's and your liberals communist agenda and the way you want to destroy America. Calling me a racist just shows how stupid you actually are when you cannot show one time I have ever used a racist remark. I will say if anyone on here is a racist it is you liberals as you promise the blacks everything to get their vote and deliver nothing. All you do is use the black population to keep control so your complete government take over of all our lives will continue. I will give obastard credit for making fools out of all the liberals that support him even though he continues to lie to all of you. He is smarter than the fools he lies to and manipulates and you know who you pathetic losers are. LOL!

The democratic party relies on minorities being socioeconomic victims in order to gain power and to win votes from black people and other minority groups. Since minorities are taught that only democrats care a about the poor and disadvantaged, and republicans don't and are racist, it only makes sense for democrats to continue to play the race card while keeping minorities poor and disadvantaged so they will always need and vote for a democratic party that they believe will always be there to help them and take care of them.

Barack Hussein Obama led an education foundation called “The Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) from 1995-1999 and remained on the board until 2001. During that time, the group channeled more than 100 million dollars to radical community organizers and hard left education activists in Chicago. But what was the CAC anyway. It was the creation of Bill Ayres, founder of the America-hating Weather Underground in the 1960’s. It was his group that bombed the Pentagon and the Capital. But more important, Ayres to this day is unrepentant. After the terrorist murders of September 11th 2001, his response was to state that he wished he had the chance to have done more. Obama has sought to downplay his association with Ayres, who hosted Obama’s first political fundraiser in his own home and was a big money-raiser. Obama covers for his close association by stating that Ayres is merely "a guy who lives in my neighborhood," and "our kids go to school together.” The later doesn’t hold any water whatever, since the Ayres children are much older than Obamas. But documents in the CAC archives make clear that Ayers and Obama were partners in the CAC. Those archives are housed in the Richard J. Daley Library at the University of Illinois at Chicago. According to these archives, Mr. Obama and Mr. Ayers worked as a team to advance the CAC agenda.

The CAC's agenda flowed from the philosophy of Antonio Gromsci, leader of Italy’s Communist Party in the 1960’s. Gromsci discarded violent revolution for undermining a democratic country’s institutions, particularly the schools, so as to radicalize the nation’s youth. Likewise the Ayers/Obama educational philosophy, called for downplaying achievement and scholarship in return for hatred of America and its institutions.   Ayres and the Obama that embraced his philosophy, call for teachers to be “community organizers” dedicated to provoking resistance to what they consider to be American racism and oppression.

"I'm a radical, Leftist, small 'c' communist," Mr. Ayers said in an interview in Ron Chepesiuk's, "Sixties Radicals," at about the same time Mr. Ayers was forming CAC.  In 2006, Ayers was in Venezuela praising communist dictator Hugo Chavez, saying, "We share the belief that education is the motor-force of revolution."  Barack Hussein Obama does, also.    In 2001, Ayres published "Fugutive Days," a book of his early terrorist writings, stating he hoped it would be a blueprint for future activists and community organizers.  As for his murdering terrorist acts, quotes like "we didn't do enough" and "no American is innocent," says it all.  Sounds a lot like Osama Bin Laden, doesn't it.

Any racists remarks that joneses would make on this forum...would be removed, as a matter of Times Free Press policy.

Ergo, no racist remarks by joneses can be found. This does not mean they were never made.

BTW, Obama's birth certificates are in Honolulu, Hawaii. If you wish to access them, petition the state of Hawaii for access. Or challenge the officials of the state who have sworn that they have seen the original documents.

I dare you. Don't piddle around in courts that don't have the right to access them, go straight to the judges of the state of Hawaii. Demand your rights.

You usually just skip over my rants? I appreciate you reading the ones you read. Actually liberals think any disagreement of their failed policies is rude and offensive. You referred to me as "jonsass". so apparently you are no better than me and you have actually proven yourself to be another hypocritical lying liberal. Personally, I do not give a rats ass what you pathetic communist disgusting weak minded liberals find appalling. You mean nothing to me as I find you and your agenda appalling and you are not important. I remember when you hypocritical liberals were referring to President Bush as "stupid" for 8 years and you still continue to do so. So please do not come on here and attack me for the same thing you are doing. It does not work and all it does is prove what a hypocrite you actually are. I will admit I am rude and my rudeness comes from my passion about the health of this country and I see this fool you support as president as "obastard". I am not ashamed of calling him "obastard" as in my mind that is what he is. I and many others will defend this country and our rights and there is nothing you or your other chicken s%$t liberal fools can do to stop it. You only believe in freedom of speech when it is your speech and that itself proves you want to quiet those who love this country and disagree with you. So all I have to say to you is if you do not like my post then leave. Many of you liberal fools must be reading my post because you sure do comment on them often. You are a pathetic liar just like obastard. Would you rather me refer to this fool we are so unfortunate to have as president as oboob, odummy, ostupid, omoron, oPOS, ohussien? I will not refer to him as president obama because he has done nothing to earn my respect. Lying to a bunch of fools that put him in office does not warrant my respect nor does all his failed policies which happens to be all his policies. My suggestion to you ad you other pathetic communist liberals is to move to North Korea where your proven failed political agenda will be welcome.

Do you think it's futile?

joneses: You can be racist or say something racist without using a racial slur. But hey, I notice you called me a racist (and you've done that before, as I recall), yet by your own standards, one has to produce evidence, right? Where's yours to justify your attack on me?

Oh wait, you're making it up and just using it as a pointless criticism. Since apparently you have defenders asserting that others shouldn't call you a racist without such evidence, I expect them to hold you to that standard.

When can I expect them to speak up, or for you to retract your words? Or will you just continue to make the same attacks you complain when others make about you?

That might not make you a racist, but that'll make you a hypocrite. Not exactly an improvement.

As for me, I call you rude, from your use of name-calling and derogatory language, such as how you try to address people. You know it doesn't hurt people's feelings. It actually says a lot about you. And not in a positive way, but as a reason to continue to dismiss you. Really, a rude hypocrite like yourself? You're an enemy to your own cause. But I've said that to you before. You never listen. You're so committed to your own destructive acts that I continue to believe you might just be a false-flag operator.

But hey, these black friends of yours, when can we expect their affidavits to support your claims?

I agree Bulbs. Problem is, these types of boards bring out the worst in people.....Me, I'm a solid moderate...dislike extremes on either side. Libs (extreme) think all C's are racists. C's (extreme) think all libs are commie bastuds. Sooooo, the truth obviously in somewhere in the middle. Which is right where I'm at. (tho I will admit the condescension shown by the lefties if very off-putting)

May 4, 2012 at 6:58 p.m.

You think the condescension by the lefties is off-putting? Your indifference to the condescension by the conservatives here is...off-putting. And that's putting it lightly. An honest description of the behavior of the self-professed conservatives found here would be more like: The lying demagoguery rife with condescension and vulgarity that serves as so much of a negative example that one would be incredulous that somebody genuinely represents themselves that way, to the point of wondering if they are actually saboteurs for their own side.

But enough about them, I honestly think you're falling for a false equivalency. That strikes many avowed moderates, because they try to be fair, but their unbalanced attempted to do so results in a more doubtful status since they don't condemn what is wrong in a genuine fashion.

So while you claim to be a moderate, I don't find your claims to be authentic.

Maybe if you spoke up against the birthers.

Bulbs: I've stated before I'm not in the birther camp. And BTW, I'm pretty sure I need not justify anything to you, Bunky.

Reading joneses is fun. I never skip joneses. It makes me realize that no matter how stressful or trying my day was, I'm still not joneses, and therefore should count my blessings, which is 'good mood food' for thought!

BobMKE, I thought you rested your case previously. The day I take busywork assignments from dullards like you is the day I "throw myself off Lookout Mountain" as Patterson Hood (who is appearing, BTW, at the Finster Fest tomorrow) would say.

Jack_Dennis: You're the one who stated your position to me of your own initiative regarding the birther movement. I didn't ask you to start justifying yourself, you chose that of your own initiative. But I'm pretty sure I don't have to justify anything to you either. Ain't that nice, we're totally not having to justify anything? Think of what it has done for discussion here! It's improved it so much!

But your position on the birthers? I don't care much about it, if you hadn't interjected yourself on it, I wouldn't care, since you did, well, as I said, you really aren't an authentic moderate to me, but you're not much of anything to me anyway. Just another poster on an internet forum. When it comes to people in real authority, I do care that they consider themselves the height of Conservatism, and that the Republican party seems to pander to them quite a bit. They couldn't think of a surer way to lose my votes. Which makes me wonder if they're either the victim of an incredibly effective fifth column, or just that dumb.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio for example. Is he really believing what he says, or has he been co-opted to make other Republicans look bad?

Which is it? I can't decide! I really can't!

Dude_abides: Joneses does serve as an excellent example of what not to be. Which goes back to what I mentioned earlier about doubting his sincerity.

It's almost impossible to believe.

Bulbs: Uncle. I'll concede that YOU are far more than just another poster on an internet forum. I'm sure you're much admired. But then so is Bill Ayers.

Jack_Dennis: And so is John Wayne Gacy. Not to mention Suharto and thrbLord's Resistance Army. Probably somebody thinks Anders Breivik is a hero. You're proving yourself to be a faux moderate even more. I bet you liked the recent Heartland Institute campaign, didn't you?

Mymy: Or I can watch...TMZ.

happy: you sound like that is all you watch. Good current events lessons there. LOL

May 4, 2012 at 10:57 p.m.

Well, I'd certainly know more than your average Fox News viewer, who tested as less informed than those who didn't watch any news.

I might also have some chance at learning what a Kardashian is.

mymy said...

Kardashian trash-if that's your style. Have at it.

May 4, 2012 at 11:57 p.m.

Well, so far I remain cluless about Kardashians. I did hear Ted Nugent claim to be a moderate.

If he's what passes for moderate in this country...
