Some of you didn't have a life until President Obama took office. Most of you on this blog wake up just to attack him. It's sad when all of your blogs have to do with the POTUS. Some of you are obsessed with a black man in office. The Coastal Courier only post blogs in the paper that are filled with hate towards him. I've never seen them post a blog in the paper that supported him or Obama Care..
Hi PN: I cannot speak so much for the Coastal Courier and what we see in print on the National Level in their paper. I do know, that here on the blogs, they give liberals plenty of room to rant and rave. (See some of my previous blogs and rants against those on the right). Occasionally they even give me that space where they post blog comments on page two, top right corner.
On this here blog site, you and I are outnumbered. You've got erudite conservatives like Funk and lholmes, Independent but right leaning articulate ones such as Sebe and maybe HJMC, and right wing limb climbing primate lunatics like Tot.
They all are very verbose. As a Liberal I refer to many of them as the whine and pine club. But, I digress some.
The Courier let me have a bi-monthly (two columns a month) Op/ED for 4 years 1995-1999. I became unhinged near the end and Pat had to fire me. Got kicked outa here a while back but made recompense and was allowed to return.
Two counties in Georgia have held their Democratic liberal ground against the tsunami Republican onslaught of the last few years, Liberty County and Chatham County.
Course we got some very reasonable and normal types here like Eyes and Up2 who appear more than fair to all of us. I don't now how they do that, but they do.
I'm rambling now...
So let me just say that you and I must hold the line here until reinforcements arrive. I honestly think that when the Country elects Hillary as POTUS, it will send many of the ones noted above over the edge. They will morph into straight jacketed, baby food slurping, bed wetters requiring round the clock supervision and not be allowed to use computers, phones, or have access to pencil or pen.
Of Course, to ones like Tot, this will signal the Second Coming. He will be found under his bed in a fetal position, frightened, alone and extremely malnourished.
Hi Sebe: regarding Humor:
I would put my man Bill Maher up against your Fox News Boy Dennis Miller any day of the week. By the way, where is that washed up right wing 'comedian' been lately?
Jimmy: There is no "my Fox News Boy Dennis Miller." If you recall from my prior posts (which apparently you don't), the only Fox News I watch is Bret Baier's 6:00 show occasionally for news headlines and their panel. That's it. I've never been a fan of Dennis Miller - and even less so after his stint on Monday Night Football.
Regarding humor: Those of us not on the left had to put up with 8 years of Bush-bashing with the lowest level "humor" liberals could come up with. I found this "outhouse" story to be "outrageous" (as I said) and funny. The left thought it was apropos when they were singing about it in 2008 and "Earthquake" was saluting the President and making money off it in 2009. When it comes to "humor" - what goes around comes around.
PN: You can call it hate - I call it rendering unto a Democrat that which Democrats wrought.
P.S. Maher is no great shakes as a comedian. The left loves him because he gave a million bucks to Obama and he constantly slimes the right. But as far as being "funny" - I'll take Richard Pryor, Mel Brooks, Bill Cosby and Rodney Dangerfield any day. There are scores of comedians who are funnier than Maher - and they don't need to play to a friendly choir and bash their collective political "enemies" to do so.
Ten fo Chief, and where was PN when all the Dubya bashing was going on. You can disagree all you like; however at least most of his actions were based on principles that he supports to this day.
Hi Funky. Actually, I laugh AT this situation (basic blog) rather than laughing with the library's "founder." It is a pretty crude way to express an opinion, but then we have crudeness on both sides as you pointed out. Some of the posts below the WND.com article are priceless, though - as they try to top one another with outrageous comments. If you look on the liberal sites, you see the same thing directed at the right. They had Bush for eight years. Now the worm has turned and their man is in the hot seat and they (the left) can't tolerate what they were putting out for all those years.
They need to be reminded every now and then that free speech isn't their exclusive domain.
Sorry Sebe. Should not have called Dennis Miller 'your Fox News Boy.' My bad. And unlike Tot, I will admit it when I am wrong.
Regarding Maher, being a Lefty, I loved him from the very beginning, before he gave his million bucks to BHO. I find Maher to be a comic genius. I even liked Dennis Miller til he decided to add Fox News to his comedic portfolio. I enjoyed his rants and obscure references.
As far as the give and take between the two sides, I'd say it's about equal. It becomes vicious at times, but unfortunately, that's politics.
BTW: Richard Pryor is my all-time favorite comedian that has ever lived.
Me, too. I know he's famous for raunch, but I especially like his kinder, gentler side - especially in the movies. Whenever I see "Silver Streak" on the tube, I can't look away.
I really am dating myself here but my favorite comedic album of all time was Pryor's That N-word is Crazy. My second one is his Bi-centennial N-word. He broke all the rules ala Lenny Bruce. Too bad Lenny liked his heroin too much and Richard set himself on fire free-basing Cocaine. The Demons within them must have been straight out of Hell. Somehow they conjugated their anguish into hilarity. I miss them.
I think those were back in the 70s, no? It's too bad they wouldn't let him have his TV show the way he wanted it. He was way less radical than what you see on TV today - or even in the 90s on shows like "In Living Color." Saturday Night Live, All in the Family, The Jefferson's, Sanford and Son - all of those shows pushed the envelope but I guess the network suits were too afraid of Richard due to the composition of his stand-up.
Yep! That's The Man! Richard Pryor. He was one funny man. I like Eddie Murphy a lot also. He could get off the wall raunch!! I mean his Ralph Cramden and Ed Norton routine caused me to almost have a seizure when I first saw and heard it. It came out of no-where and shocked the living daylights out of me.
Him and Nick Nolte in 48 hrs. is one of the best cop-buddy films in cinematic history IMHO. Watching Eddie shake down that red-neck bar is priceless! Eddie's..."y'all listen up now! There's a new sheriff in town...And his name is Reggie Hammond.(pause) Now y'all be cool."
Initially I didn't care much for Nick Nolte. Saw him for the first time back when in "Rich Man, Poor Man." I started to like him in "The Deep" (but I liked Jackie Bisset better). Then I liked him a whole lot more in "Mulholland Falls" with Chazz Palminteri, Jennifer Connelly, and John Malkovich (which has my all-time favorite sound track by Dave Grusin). I liked Eddie Murphy in the Beverly Hills Cop series.
But I think Richard Pryor had a really quick wit (despite the raunch). It would have been great to see him in a "dueling comics" scneario onstage with the likes of Mel Brooks, George Carlin and Robin Williams in their prime. It would be worth a lot of money to see that kind of free-for-all.
