I hope that Doctor ET will shock some of the liberals out there into the "Pursuit of Happiness" The Traditional American Way, which leads to prosperity and is fair to all citizens of the US.
WOW Funk, the man spoke the truth! Again, THANKS for sharing... Do you really think that PN or JM will jump on this band wagon? I think "NOT"....
Thank you again too Sheran, this is America and all I expect from them is to acknowledge the truth, supported by the actual facts.
If Ben Carson becomes the president in 2017 he would be the first traditional Black President. Obama is recognized so only because that is what he wishes to be called. The reality is he is bi-racial, I don't understand why he wishes to dismiss his mother and grand parents heritage and call himself black because he is only black by the color of his skin and not culturally like Herman, Ben or I.
Sheran: "Do you really think that PN or JM will jump on this band wagon?"
I cannot speak for PN, Sheran, but I can state, that I, JM, do enjoy watching a Conservative Republican Hog Waller done with so much heady enthusiasm like the one taking place here. Since y'all got all the truth cornered and the perfect candidate, I think that I am just gonna go swallow a bottle of pain pills, crawl under my bed, and give up.
So, no Sheran dearest I do not wish to spoil y'alls fine 'beer hall putsch' you got going here. You have found your Leader. For now, I am content in just watching y'all keep whoopin' it up until the pills kick in.
Pat, Sebe, Funk, Sheran, Eyes, Up2, PN, HMJC, lholmes, and everybody else....please note that by his post above, TOT HAS NOT LET IT GO and has fired a fresh salvo across my bow. Now, I ask all yall: Was Mr. Padrick, aka Tot, comment REALLY necessary?
Now, all yall that said I,JimmyMack, was taking it personally by Tot's comments a while back, WHAT SAY YOU NOW???
I will wait a reasonable amount of time to read your comments before responding to Mr.Padrick aka TOT.
Today we mourn the passing of an old friend by the name of Common Sense.
Common Sense lived a long life but died from heart failure at the brink of the millennium. No one really knows how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He selflessly devoted his life to service in schools, hospitals, homes, factories and offices, helping folks get jobs done without fanfare and foolishness.
For decades, petty rules, silly laws and frivolous lawsuits held no power over Common Sense. He was credited with cultivating such valued lessons as to know when to come in out of the rain, the early bird gets the worm, and life isn't always fair.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn), reliable parenting strategies (the adults are in charge, not the kids), and it's okay to come in second.
A veteran of the Industrial Revolution, the Great Depression, and the Technological Revolution, Common Sense survived cultural and educational trends including feminism, body piercing, whole language and "new math."
But his health declined when he became infected with the "If-it-only-helps-one-person-it's-worth-it" virus. In recent decades his waning strength proved no match for the ravages of overbearing federal regulation.
He watched in pain as good people became ruled by self-seeking lawyers and enlightened auditors. His health rapidly deteriorated when schools endlessly implemented zero tolerance policies, reports of six-year-old boys charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate, a teen suspended for taking a swig of mouthwash after lunch, and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student. It declined even further when schools had to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student but cannot inform the parent when the female student is pregnant or wants an abortion.
Finally, Common Sense lost his will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband, churches became businesses, criminals received better treatment than victims, and federal judges stuck their noses in everything from Boy Scouts to professional sports.
As the end neared, Common Sense drifted in and out of logic but was kept informed of developments, regarding questionable regulations for asbestos, low flow toilets, "smart" guns, the nurturing of Prohibition Laws and mandatory air bags.
Finally when told that the homeowners association restricted exterior furniture only to that which enhanced property values, he breathed his last.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers: Rights, Tolerance and Whiner.
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.
Sheran: I thought Funk's blog is about the TRUTH!! Plus: YOU called me out!! Now before I get going on about other's hypocrisy, I count YOUR comment as such.
Let me hear it fellas, HMJC, Sebe, Funk, re: my question above. What say you re: Tot's post???!!
"What say you re: Tot's post???!!:"
I'm not sure I understand it. Jimmy said:
" I, JM, do enjoy watching a Conservative Republican Hog Waller done with so much heady enthusiasm like the one taking place here. Since y'all got all the truth cornered and the perfect candidate, I think that I am just gonna go swallow a bottle of pain pills, crawl under my bed, and give up."
"For now, I am content in just watching y'all keep whoopin' it up until the pills kick in."
"I didn't expect it.
Don't expect it'
Go eat those pills and continue.
Have a good day."
So - summarizing:
You said you were going to swallow a bottle of pills and give up; and he said - go ahead.

"I have encountered more blacks that are racist than whites".
Yea, Yea, Yea,- Some people love playing Blacks against Blacks, especially when they have such hatred for President Obama. I don’t have a problem with conservatives or liberals. I must say that most black conservatives need to think for themselves and not resort to being a victim of the black community so that they can fit in or make others feel that they can relate too by putting down their own race; just to please the majority. I hope that your political views are true to who you really are and that it’s not a result of self-hate.
In my personal experience in life after 53 years, I have encountered more blacks that are racist than whites.
PN, I take this as a personal assault on my individualism as an American. If you examine my whole statement I ensured that it was a known fact on a personal basis. Black Conservatives and Libertarians actually think for themselves, for if we didn’t we would be in the 93% of black voters that don’t. If you think about it something is very wrong and troubling about that percentage of people giving a blank check to any political party. I’m an American who actually believes in judging a person by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. Additionally by serving 21 years in the U.S Army as a Drill Sergeant, BNCOC SGL, AIT Instructor and a Platoon Sergeant, actually living in several different countries and several states in the US, I’ve gained a valuable leadership skill that President Obama lacks. Follow and enforce the rules and laws on the books and you will have done your job to treating all Americans equally and history will take care of the rest. I don’t hate BHO. Just his policies that are setting the country back further with crushing debt and people influenced to depend on the government instead of themselves. So yes my political views are true to whom I am and I lead by example too. Too bad for us all that the President doesn’t because I surely do.
PN, was calling me out about two months ago because I said I had encountered more blacks that are racist than whites which is absolutely true. I posted a response to PN and she didn’t respond back. I wasn’t going to hound her because I respect all people, especially a strong black woman; however I discovered this post by ET Williams that sounds a lot like what I was telling the truth about in his non pc way. Here is my blog:
And here is ET in rare form; Enjoy!
Now let’s do a combination factual about the truth in regards to blacks and our hypocrisy. The subject is Trayvon Martin and let’s start off with Dr. James Manning with the “Manning Report” and then he turns it over to another brother, Michael David Carroll that is non PC, but factual for the coup degas!
gacpl, your post yesterday at 17:54 is one of the best and it speaks volumes about the sad state of the affairs of this country.
The links above bring to my mind the song, IN THE GHETTO by Elvis.
I applaud the black folk who are standing up and speaking the truth.
Too many blacks and whites seek to wallow in self pity.
We were guaranteed the right to the pursuit of happiness.
We are not entitled to happiness without working for it.
Well, so much for consistency regarding views in "taking it personally." That's what I get for sticking my head in a Conservative Rabbit hole without a helmet. Got me some real good 'fair and balanced truth,' didn't I! Where's y'alls sense of humor?
So, you boys and girls please continue your Conservative Hog Waller. If you do in fact make it to your Munich Rally regarding your Leader Ben Carson, I will be awaitin your guttural roars and shouts.
Now one of you smarter ones, Sebe or Funk, please go explain to Tot the Toad what I'm talking about.
And Tot aka Mr. Padrick, be assured I will resume helping you in your very own pursuit of happiness.
All done from my PERSONAL Liberal perspective, of course.
Let's just begin with one booster for today. I believe it goes something like this: hot water on the left, cold water on the right, and ka-ka don't run uphill. Does that not approach the intellectual pinnacle of your private sector contribution to society Mr. P.?
I like it when you're funny Sebe. I may just have to borrow that helmet because TOT lives three doors down and could blow a fuse at any given moment.
Having grown up in the South, I am familiar with Southern Redneck Bullies on the playground. Some realize the game changes in adulthood. Some don't. Some realize the legal penalties regarding assault. Some don't. What I DO KNOW is that Rednecks, in general, are an ignorant bunch, usually are well-armed, and are almost always angry about something. Usually the
Federal Gov-mint from which I am a paid retiree.
I am sure you get my drift.
Jimmy, my bad as I look back at your comments I can understand the humor in it now. Hind sight is 20/20 and I'm TOT didn't get humor part either.
".....because TOT lives three doors down...."
He does? I guess I didn't follow the skirmishes that closely. You and I know where each other lives based on our earlier conversations. For some reason, I thought TOT lived on a farm (he said something once about tractors). That is interesting.
Our old bloggin' buddy "icyman" lives three doors down from me. He went off with family to tour the country in an RV about a year ago and I haven't seen him since. Hope he hasn't run into any problems. The neighbor directly across the street from him has been cutting icy's lawn and watching his house. I guess I should ask him whazzup with icyman.
As for helmets and Hinesville (as in wit's end) humor, I've actually tried not to contribute to any problems. All I can hope for is that:
Neighbors will be neighborly.
I miss "icyman" in these blogs... I really enjoyed blogging with him. Hope he and his family are doing well!
Me, too. He, Mrs. Ice, and their little Ice Chip went RVing last fall. I thought it was going to be for about six months. Mrs. Ice hails from Argentina, and they spent part of last year (or was it 2011?) communing with the penguins in the land WAY down under. I guess he's now seeing the world in a way he never could as a Marine. Good for him.
Note to everyone.
I did not think the post by JM about taking the bottle of pain pills was very funny.
It was addressed to Sheran and JM has frequently linked she and TOT in his hate filled tripe, therefore I thought it was alright for TOT to respond as he did.
If it was humor it was in my opinion dark humor.
Because JM is a declared Liberal the rest of us are no longer free to speak critically of liberals or liberalism in general because he takes it personally.
However JM is free to hurl nasty barbs at any individual who has opposing views.
YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS.
The idiotic attacks degrade this blog site and if it is going to continue I like others before me will eventually cease to participate on this medium.
If this is what Mr Watkins wants to be the webmaster over then so be it.
As I've stated many times in the past we are not only witnessing the slow death of the status of journalism as the fourth estate, we are participating in it.
With such hate filled images created on this community blog site the Courier is sinking to heretofore unseen tabloid status.
I have always admired those who make careers in the field of journalism.
It makes me sad to see such as this trash talk on my community newspapers blog site.
TOT: Believe it or not, the back and forth between you and Jimmy is pretty tame compared to some of the stuff that used to go on around here. I wish we could all get along and keep our comments NON-personal, but that doesn't seem possible. As long as people see criticism as "hate" and project motives for someone else's comments, that will always be the case.
It's just too easy in cyber-space to type stuff and "post." I suspect that if we were all sitting around a table and conversing face-to-face, the discourse would be much more civil. I try to envision this when I make my posts. (I haven't always done this, but my approach has "evolved.")
Tot: I really do not wish to hurt you and if you must know, I respect you as a man very much. Yet we see the world thru different lens. I doubt you will change nor will I regarding that matter.
I have been word-smithing publicly soon to be 20 years. I realize you are new at it and all I can say on this matter is that I have had longer time to practice the craft. I am not smart and have said so on these pages and if you really want to know I do NOT wish to run you off.
I am an unashamed Liberal Democrat Tot and politics being what they are it can get down right ugly at times here between Liberals and Conservatives.
For the record, I see my verbal barbs as very sharp ones aimed to penetrate my political adversary. And Tot, I see yours as a sledge-hammer when you post your comments.
I will try not to hurt you Tot, but I can only hope that you also come to see the impact of your words to the Liberal establishment, that just so happens to include me.
Just came into the barn for a break.
Thank you both for your respective responses.
I'll speak more later.
Got to finish this days chores.
Late September and October is a busy time.
See ya'll tomorrow.
TOT - please repeat after me:
"Liberals are not bad people; they are just politically misguided."
"Liberals are not bad people; they are just politically misguided."
"Liberals are not bad people.........."
sebekm, please believe that I'm aware that liberals are not bad people and yes I think they are politically misguided.
Thank you and Jimmy for your comments from yesterday.
The Courier is our community blog site. I hope we can all be respectful of each other in our commentary.
OK. Now back to Funks Blog re: Common Sense. At BI my 8th grade science teacher, now deceased, Albert Rogers used to tell us all on regular occasion "that common sense was the most uncommon thing in the world."
So true. But I prefer the liberal topic at this time. It appears we had one in the White House from 1998 to 1992 and didn't know it:
If the people knew this back then, I wonder if it would have made a difference in the 1992 election? Perhaps we wouldn't have had eight years of Bill Clinton. No balanced budgets, no budget surpluses as far as the eye could see, no government shut-down by the Ging-Grinch who stole Christmas.
With Barbara Bush cracking the whip - there would certainly have been no Monica Lewinsky cavorting in the Oral Office.
Sebe: you are one wiiiiiiiiiiild and craaaaaaaaaaazy guy!!
41 attending a same sex marriage!!! He's 86 something isn't he? Do you think he really knows where he was and what he was doing?
I think so. He seems to still be pretty quick. But you never know about those Bushies. They surprise you when you least expect it. I guess that's because they're always so misunderestimated. Nobody can figure out what their strategery is.
The guy who did surprise me was Jim Brown (as opposed to host James Brown) on "Inside the NFL" last night. I guess I expected him to always be that guy we see in game highlights and in "The Dirty Dozen." I hadn't realized he's in his upper 70s now. (In fact, they are replaying "Inside the NFL" on Showtime and he is on there RIGHT NOW.)
Yep. Jim Brown was robbed of the Heisman Trophy when he put up phenomenal numbers while at Syracuse. I am not sure but I think he lost to the white boy at Texas AM John David Crowe. Not sure I got all this right. I just know Jim Brown was the best College Football player in America and EARNED that award yet he was denied it.
Jim Brown was THE MAN in college and later in the Pros.
College football just getting started with a Thursday nite contest between Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech. I
gots to sign off for now. Do not like them boys from that Atlanta North Avenue Trade school. But I do like watching that triple option of theirs when it is hitting on all cylinders.
Have a good evening all.
Now where did I leave Rachel....
