beating a dead horse"
I assume from your avatar you got your ashes on your forehead today. Can't remember the last time I got my forehead rubbed with the ashes. I keep saying I'm going but somehow never make it.
And now for a pause from our regularly scheduled debate: Science vs Fantasy
KUDOS TO MR. BENNETT
Clay Bennett, editorial cartoonist for the Chattanooga Times Free Press, this week was named the finalist for the 2014 Herblock Prize.
The national prize is awarded annually by the Herb Block Foundation for "distinguished examples of editorial cartooning that exemplify the courageous independent standard set by Herblock,"
The judges noted, "Clay Bennett is a master of the surprising visual metaphor. His clean, elegant drawings convey his strong opinions with deceptive simplicity."
*Bennett won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning, and has been a finalist for the Pulitzer seven times.
And he keeps the nutjobs climbing the walls around here. LOL
No comment on the 'former incarnation' remark... telling.
If you had any evidence of who are what I am you would have posted it ... So I say good luck with that"
Tudumb the reason no one will find any evidence of who you are and what you are is because when you got banned using the name Tu_quoque all of your posts were pulled. However if someone wants to know why you got banned they can pull up Mr. Bennett's Sandy Hook editorial cartoon on Dec. 15, 2012 @ 1:47 a.m. and see the tirade that got you banned as Al responds to what you wrote and then go to the editorial cartoon entitled "Results of Election on 11/16/2012 @3:00a.m. and find your talk of putting on a "strap on." Strange how you would speak of doing that unless there is some other tiny reason you would need one. BTW Easy was no coward, you just were no challenge for him. LOL
You can bet that if there were UFO's, their crews would be immediately labeled "undocumented aliens" and ushered by the democrat party to the nearest Acorn facility and registered to vote"
This from the same person who said Trayvon Martin was probably a member of a union.
I'll tell you, for you dems claiming to be the party of "forward", you sure as hell dwell on the past a lot.
Bush this and Bush that. So half a decade ago."
Dwelling? No. REMEMBERING, Yes so the mistake of electing a dumba*s like Bush doesn't happen again. To paraphrase: THOSE WHO FORGET THE MISTAKES OF THE PAST ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT THEM.
^^ thank you Mrs. Bennett. And BTW, I don't see anyone climbing the walls over Bennett. Just commenting. Sometimes he shows talent; other times he exhibits drawers bloc."
I didn't know Mrs. Bennett had made a comment. Maybe you can point me to that thread I seemed to have missed it.
BTW I don't expect you to see anyone climbing the wall unless you look beside yourself or in front but careful you just might fall off that wall. LOL
President Obama said something a couple of months back to teabaggers, rwnj's and the rest. If you don't like the candidate the people have chosen then find you one the people will elect and put him/her out there.
The same goes for Mr. Bennett's editorial cartoons. YOu don't like what he draws then find enough people to get the Free Press side of the editorial section to include a cartoon by some rwnj.
Mr. Bennett was chosen by the Times as their "LOCAL" editorial cartoonist. If they didn't like what he draws then they would send him packing but they know a good thing when they see it. He is definitely, definitely(as RainMan would say) very good at what he does and if anyone has any doubt all they have to do is read the comments of the teabaggers and nutjobs as they climb the walls over something he has drawn.LOL
Clay Bennett’s personal attacks on his political opponents are as devoid of thought-provoking content as the t-shirts his characters wear. He is, all too often, a t-shirt sort of cartoonist."
And pray tell exactly how many PULITIZER PRIZES have you been nominated for?
I'm pretty disgusted with those scrappy mocs. If Jo-Jos was still around, I'd form up there for a couple hours,, them march on UTC."
Sorry, not familiar with Jo-Jo's. Only familiar with Sam & Andy's on Kingston Pike in Knox.
Speaking of the Mocs, it seems they changed their mascot from the chief to a MOCKINGBIRD on a locomotive. Hmm, wonder why? SMOKEY NEVER HAD THAT PROBLEM. LOL
And that one team will eventually have to change its' name. It's just a matter of time and pressure.
People like Ibshame and Al , care so much about the Native Americans that they are outraged at the use of the word Redskin. But notice how they haven't said a word about the high unemployment, poor education, high rate of alcoholism, poor medical care and poor quality of life on the government run reservations. Let's keep the Native Americans on the reservations and dependent on the crappy quality of life our government is providing for them but let's show we care because we don't like the word Redskins."
Again you make a generalization about which you KNOW NOTHING. Not in a million years would I have sanctioned putting Native Americans on a RESERVATION. It was the United States Government that chose that path and unfortunately since those Indian Nations could not beat the Military might of the U.S. govt. they had no choice but to move to those reservations. As to why some are still there it is a mystery to me.
Putting Native Americans on a Reservation was just as inexcusable as putting Japanese Americans in Internment camps on the West Coast following the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Maybe that's why Arab-Americans weren't herded up following the 9/11 attack. Somebody finally realized the word in front of American only signified heritage and not that the person was not an American. See for all the teabaggers out there Ted Cruz can claim Canadian born American citizenship. Guess that's why he walked around with dual citizenship for so long. LOL
