David_Franks's comment history

RE "You misinterpret everything and its so simply [sic]." "Everything?" Quite an extrapolation. According to the author: "'John' because the first crime books I ever got in to were Ernest Tidyman's appalling (but I loved them) Shaft series. (I owned the record before I ever read the books.) And 'Rebus' because a Rebus is a kind of picture puzzle popular at one time in the 'Merry Mac Fun Page' of the ruthlessly parochial Sunday Post newspaper." http://www.twbooks.co.uk/authors/rebus.html

RE "No, coherent sentences would suffice. Idjit"

The author should sue you for sullying his character's name by attaching your dullness to it. Your posts certainly don't reinforce the notion that your screen name has anything to do with a detective.

My sentences are perfectly coherent. France is considered a center-right nation these days, and Mr. Obama likely offended them with his mention of gay rights. My second reply should be perfectly clear to anybody who is not ignorant of history and his own soreness of losing.

RE "Franks, your post makes no sense"

Would it help you if I used pictures instead of words, as your screen name seems to suggest I do?

RE "I would say it was BHO that flipped the bird to a center-right country today."

And that country would be-- let me guess: France?

RE "They did a terrible job keeping him out of office for a second term."

Just one of many terrible jobs they've done over the past thirty-two years. I'll bet you have shin splints from stamping your widdle feet.

Do Republicans even cast reflections?

"Republicans don't have to accept evolution, economics, climatology, or human sexuality, but I just watched a week of their national convention, and I need them to admit the historical existence of George W. Bush. If your party can run the nation for eight years and then have a national convention and not invite Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Karl Rove, or Tom DeLay, you're not a political movement, you're the witness protection program." --Bill Maher

At least if they had invited Bush to the RNC, somebody could have helped him to hold the sign correctly.

Oh, all right. You ARE a baby.

Sheesh: what a baby.

Never mind that he might be engaging in critical thinking-- he's nekkid as a jaybird!

RE "Obastard gives those that pay no taxes an earned income tax credit check which equals about 59 billion dollars every year."

Note that the Earned Income Tax Credit was enacted, and for the most part expanded, under Republican presidents: "Enacted in 1975, the initially modest EIC has been expanded by tax legislation on a number of occasions, including the widely-publicized Reagan Tax Reform Act of 1986, and was further expanded in 1990, 1993, and 2001, regardless of whether the act in general raised taxes (1990, 1993), lowered taxes (2001), or eliminated other deductions and credits (1986)." http://tinyurl.com/4txftj

Blaming the tax code on Obama (or on the poor, another favorite conservative target) is either abysmally ignorant or more shamefully dishonest than you usually are. But if you reeeally want to blame a president for the way the tax burden is distributed, you'll have to blame George W. Bush, because Obama is working with the tax structure that came about as a result of the tax cuts that Bush enacted. http://www.taxfoundation.org/files/ff202.pdf (Never mind the increase in the numbers of eligible taxpayers created by the Bush recession.)

You must be related to Rev. Jim Jones. Your use of Kool-Aid bears a strong family resemblance.
