"This was taken from PERSONAL LIBERTY DIGEST."
Of course it was. Tot is incapable of personal expression. What's new?
Obama is the Fundraiser-in-Chief. That's what he enjoys, that's what he does best. He is easily bored/frustrated with "governing." If the country was viewing him clearly in 2008, they could have predicted this. But with the promise of "hope" and "change" and the novelty of the first African-American president, it wouldn't have made any difference.
MY hope for change is that the country sees that when we put "community organizers" with no experience in leading, governing, or with business in positions of great responsibility (i.e., President, Senator). When we do this, we are likely to get leadership from behind and "present" votes (instead of taking a stand). That's not the way to govern a country or to lead in world affairs.
Gee Sebe...I don't know about this one. Seems the movie "Breakfast with Bonzo" didn't impede Ronnie's political ambitions. Wasn't Ronnie nominated for best supporting actor in that one?
Jimmy , just a friendly reminder. Barry is the US President right now. Do you have anything to add about his governing?
H Funk: Only that the Republicans are running a Puppy Mill of defective candidates. To my mind, only Jesus can fix this mess Republicans have put us in. And Obama just ain't him.
Every day Republicans try to move the country one step closer to Fascism. They must be stopped. We are getting our line up card ready. MY advise to you is to get Rand Paul a complete makeover, stop the war on women, and get Marco Rubio to come clean about his Hispanic Heritage.
However, if even you did all of the above you are still gonna lose. WE' are dug in.
for the fundraising what is that saying called? To the victors go the spoils? Or winners write history? Like it or love it the government is a democratic republic. So best I can tell that means the party that wins gets to be the leader and lead as long as they respect the republic. So if they can fit fundraising in to the busy schedule well so be it.
Now as far as calling the Republicans fascism I think that points to the fact that the writer does not truly understand what fascism is. I think of course it is being used in it's Orwellian way as a type of insult to people whose views they do not agree with.
Now that insult points out one of the few flaws with democracy. One of democracies flaws is that people are mean, and stupid and often times. Far too often the majority is wrong.
What did Mark Twain say about the majority?
"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect."
So democracy can and does work but only with compassion and respect for everyone.
"for the fundraising what is that saying called? To the victors go the spoils? Or winners write history? Like it or love it the government is a democratic republic."
You know shannalat, I was beginning to like you a bit, but your Junior High recital of 'observations' utilizing political cliches' that leads down a road to nowhere reveals a glimpse into what appears to be a narcissistic persona. You're gonna need bigger boat to make it here shannalat.
"Now as far as calling the Republicans fascism (ungrammatical)I think that points to the fact that the writer does not truly understand what fascism is."
Do not for minute attempt to quantify me or my words. Are you an English Teacher or some form of mental health professional? Your profile says otherwise. You profile identifies neither. To further take my words and identify them of some sort of 'Owellian' insult bespeaks of someone that at most read the Cliff notes of a book and missed the whole point of the book entirely.: SOME ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS. Orwellianism.
Don't attempt to put me or others for that matter, in some sort of Box just for the purpose of making it palpable to your limited cognitive perceptions or reality.
@shannalat: BTW what are your credentials besides being a stay at home mama that takes out of focus polaroid pictures of sunsets and sundowns and then frames them to put over the couch in your trailer?
Word to the wise Shannalat: If you are going to dish it out here, you best be ready to take it. If you are gonna talk the talk you are going to have to walk the walk here.
How was Tech School? Was it hard switching Majors from Cosmetology to a non-income producing field such at Amateur Photography?
credentials while in some situations are good to have are not something I like to use. I think our current actions should be what define us not our previous ones. This is also part of the problem I have with the label and definition of genius. Someone could do something that seems like a great idea, but to define them as a genius because of an event or even series of events seems foolish.
It is not out of focus it is art and it is not a trailer it is a mobile home
Tech school was and is great and according to NPR http://onpoint.wbur.org/2014/02/05/co...
community college and technical college is the future (this is from a system that has been poorly ran for a long time now)
What exactly did you mean when you called the republicans fascists (which I think screams of cold war era by the way).
because the word fascists conjures up, for me, images of:
Kim Jong Un
To JinPings credit China has made some changes to the governments structure but oppression is still at an all time high within that nation
Now I have seen acts of oppression by the United States government of their own people see:
Chelsea Manning and Snowden but usually and I remain optimistic the United States does the right thing see Daniel Ellsburg
shannalat thank you for your commentary.
Unfortunately some on this medium are prone to attack the messenger rather than address the message.
Your piece about Midway reminds me of the Lemonade stand issue some time back.
I think most government hindrances to business comes from elected officials of left leaning political beliefs.
I don't enjoy personal insults directed at anyone on this site.
@shan. Be wary of Tot. He is incapable of personal specificity regarding any subject but cannabis. He knows his weed and is excellent at performing copy and paste jobs.
He also tho, due to his cognitive inadequacies, takes a broad brush painting sledgehammer overkill to anything his simplistic mind considers Liberal. He is one messed up dude.
In his favor tho, he seems to like you and on that subject I do not necessarily disagree with him.
To qualify some of my comments (tot calls them insults) above, my rule here is to meet like with like. If I receive a compliment I return a compliment. If I receive criticism I return criticism. If I receive an insult I (and this is where it can get dicey) I return an insult. Usually in an emphatic manner.
That's it. Other than that, I can get dressed up but I usually don't do lunch. (see Funk, MLC)
