It’s Not Adultery When You Make Love to America

Some of the talking heads particularly on MSNBC are in an uproar over remarks Newt Gingrich made to The Brody File on CBN regarding his past marital infidelities. Chris Matthews and Mika Brzezinski looked about to have a brain aneurysm over Gingrich’s claim that “how passionately I feel about this country” and that “I worked far too hard” led him to be unfaithful to his wife.

The folks on TV cannot wrap their liberal talking heads around this statement by Newt. Clearly they have no understanding of psychology. Newt Gingrich was (and is) in love with the United States of America. Clearly he was not able to make love to the entire nation. So he needed a proxy. That’s all there is folks. The woman with whom Newt cheated on his cancer suffering wife was simply a proxy for America. Newt was making love to America. The only way he could have fulfilled this need any better was to make love to a woman named America. Perhaps America Ferrera?

Newt made love to a proxy for America. What could possibly be more patriotic than that?

Who’s with me?

Newt in 2012!
Newt in 2012!
Newt in 2012!

Elect Newt in 2012 and let him screw America all over again!

Respectfully,
Rutherford

  1. Sounded to me like he was explaining the reason for the deterioration of his marriage and priorities.

    Anyway, what’s your excuse for listening to Bubbles Brzezinski or tingly-legged Matthews? Maybe it’s time you got your priorities straight, hm?

  2. Well, at least tell us what they said about the violent rhetoric from the WI protesters. I mean, you folks do walk the walk don’t you? Shouldn’t this discussion take place “before” someone gets hurt?

  3. Well, I will say Newt’s taste in women is far better than Obama’s taste in women, or even Clinton’s taste in women (Jennifer Flowers aside). I rank First Lady ‘Chelle about as appealing as lifting a mule’s tail and staring at the gaping bung hole. Matter of fact, I’m surprised she doesn’t drop apples from the helicopter pad to the front door. Must have the nag diapered.

    I give Newt kudos for that, though I don’t find him a serious Presidential candidate. Too much baggage, too loose with the character issues – a great big idea man trying to recapture the short-lived magic ’94. You only get once chance.

    A shame, as It would be fun to watch a flawed but brilliant man absolutely destroy a pandering, empty, facetious, shallow, and failed teleprompter President, so we could leave no doubt Obama, with the curtain pulled, is a charlatan – of which even Libs will mutter that in certain circles now.

    Even the Silky Pony, John Edwards, didn’t have much taste in adultery. Maybe it’s a Dim thing to cheat with ugly women. Makes no sense.

  4. Tex you’ve gotta be kidding. As I type this, I’m looking at photos of Gingrich’s wives. Two out of three are butt ugly and the current one, the slut who didn’t know better than to leave a married man alone, is a vacant looking blond.

    Should you and I ever become single please remind me never to go bar hopping with you. With your taste I’d hate to think about the girls you’d try to hook us up with.

    Ewwwwwww! :shock:

  5. Rutherford, :lol:

    I was talking about the little beauty you posted dummy – she’s cute. I don’t think Gingrich’s latest wife is anything but plain – but not baboon ugly like Ms. Shelly “Gargoyle” Antoinette – a classless and ugly modern art piece. Have you seen the way that woman dresses? I keep waiting for a purple Cadillac MichelleMobile with leopard skin convertible top. You can paint as much color on a pig as you want, but the end of the day, it’s just a colorful hog Rutherford.

    P.S. – You’re not going to talk to me about beauty, are you? You? snicker…no comment.

  6. Everytime someone mentions Newt, it always reminds me of the Monty Python bit. “She turned me into a newt!” Now that his infidelity is blamed on “passion” he has for this country, the logic in this bit doesn’t seem as far-fetched anymore. Besides, maybe she really was a witch.

  7. Since we’ve moved threads in quick succession, I’ll put this excellent summary of why Scott Walker is a hero here.

  8. Hey Rutherford. I saw this question raised and thought it a great one for you to address. It’s not original on my part, but I wish it was…

    Obama enjoys being president, and he especially treasures the symbolic significance of being the first African-American president. That’s how his supporters feel, too. I haven’t heard anyone defend his actual performance in a long time, but there is still widespread satisfaction with the symbolic value of his presidency. So why don’t we make him king? If being the first African-American president has symbolic value, just think what it would mean for the first King of the United States to be African-American! Plus, Michelle would be a queen and Malia and Sasha would be princesses. How cool would that be?

    What do you think? :smile:

  9. What a great bunch of guys and gals these Twitter respondents like Rutherford are! I can feel the civility now:

  10. I was talking about the little beauty you posted dummy

    LOL … I’m the dummy? That was a joke. Newt has not expressed any desire for America Ferrera, dingbat. In fact, he’d probably have her pegged as an illegal and report her to immigration services.

    I know you don’t watch much TV but she’s an American actress born in Honduras who starred in the semi-popular TV series “Ugly Betty”.

  11. Tex, you really expect me to get worked up over what a bunch of yahoos say on Twitter? If you think commenters on blogs say irresponsible stuff hiding behind their anonymity, you ain’t seen nothing. Twitter makes blogs look like a walk in the park. The medium practically invites incendiary rhetoric due to its immediacy and the limited length of the updates.

    Now a much more important question. Please explain your new gravatar. I am assuming that is not you in drag.

  12. To those asking what I think of all the violent liberal protesters, I haven’t seen them … remember I only watch the liberal media and they don’t show that stuff. ;-)

  13. This comment refers to a discussion from the prior thread. One thing that confounds me Tex is why you think death should be a motivator for faith. You do this consistently. When someone expresses doubt/skepticism or outright atheism, you remind them (as you did with Huck) that they are going to die. Well none of us are so deluded as to believe we’re NOT going to die.

    I think the big difference between at least some of us and you is that some of us believe that a just God rewards people for a life well lived and that it’s not an ego trip. I can die fully believing the God thing to be a fantasy and at the pearly gates He’ll say to me “you got that one wrong dude, but welcome anyway, you did good by your kid and your wife and your neighbors.”

    If all you say is true Tex, I’ve got nothing but great surprises awaiting me. More frightening is the thought that if my suspicions are true, you’ve got nothing but a void awaiting you. Absolute nothingness akin to what you experienced before conception. Now I admit, I can’t fathom this nothingness. The notion of some sort of after life seems more reasonable to me. But I’m not living my whole life worrying about that. It will either happen or it won’t.

    And yes, in the meantime death (the total unknown) does scare me. I just have to live with that.

  14. I swear, Rutherford. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds.

    Are you sure you’re not a Christian?

    (Now Tex, you have to know that was a joke… )

  15. “Since we’ve moved threads in quick succession…”

    Yeah, Rutherford had to spit something else out quick since we were so quick to call out his double-standards on the manipulation of legislative procedure and on violent political rhetoric.

  16. R, I’m not quite sure how you can defend Clinton and then blast Newt. Last I checked, Newt didn’t commit lie under oath.

    That aside, and as I said earlier, I’d love to see a debate between the Teleprompter and Newt. You have to admit, Obama would absolutely crushed.

  17. “To those asking what I think of all the violent liberal protesters, I haven’t seen them … remember I only watch the liberal media and they don’t show that stuff.”

    Really, really, really, really weak (and predictable). No answer after all of that furry over Giffords?

  18. Rutherford, for an otherwise twisted but intelligent man, I swear sometimes you’re thick as a brick.

    I was joking about the little beauty you posted as the picture. I know what Gingrich’s wife looks like. He strolls her out all the time.

    I think I’ll need to start prefacing everything with the word ** SARC ** or ** JOKE **.

  19. About the Avatar, it is a ** JOKE **. Look at it closely. I called Poolman Charley Cheswick the other day. Either he doesn’t know who Charley was, or he is ignoring me.

    So I went out looking for a character from the movie, and found the gravatar. But if you look really closely, you would see what first appears to be Nurse Ratched, is not Nurse Ratched. :wink:

  20. One thing that confounds me Tex is why you think death should be a motivator for faith. You do this consistently. When someone expresses doubt/skepticism or outright atheism, you remind them (as you did with Huck) that they are going to die. Well none of us are so deluded as to believe we’re NOT going to die.

    I may have to take back the intelligent part of my “twisted man” statement. Do I really have to explain this?

    That is, without doubt, the most elementary question somebody has ever asked me on a blog. I assume I am talking to adults here :?: Since you and Poolman are on the same wavelength, I’ll let the swimmer explain that.

    Why is the sky blue? Why is the grass green?

  21. I was watching a “Muslim” movie last night Rutherford and Huck. You should be proud of me and my “open mindedness.” :smile:

    It was pretty good. If you haven’t seen ‘The Kite Runner’, I recommend it. It has the most spectacular pictures of Afghanistan I’ve ever seen. As late as I am to the game, I may be the only person on earth not to have seen it.

    From the Wiki Summary. The story is set against a backdrop of tumultuous events, from the fall of Afghanistan’s monarchy through the Soviet invasion, the mass exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the rise of the Taliban regime..

    Definitely worth watching, and it will provide you with a sense of how mistreated the average Afghani has been treated the last 30+ years.

  22. Indeed it is Tigre. :lol: I wondered how long it would take Rutherford to figure it out.

    Joyce Slocum, National Public Radio’s new interim chief executive, has made five federal-level political contributions of more than $500, all to Democrats, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of campaign disclosures shows.

    The Center’s research indicates that between 1999 and 2002, Slocum spread about $3,500 between Democratic U.S. House candidate Regina Montoya Coggins and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Ron Kirk, who today serves as President Barack Obama’s chief trade representative.

    I still remember The Pompous Ass Graychin going on and on about his support of NPR. We’re starting to understand why.

  23. Rutherford, regarding 23, Tex is from the hellfire and brimstone school of faith motivation. “Do this or you’re going to hell!” Motivation by fear. It is effective a lot of the time, so still used by preachers, parents, teachers, armies, etc.

    Though we are all concerned with the afterlife, none of us have been there to give an accurate description. So it remains somewhat mysterious. Scripture gives us hints. Religion is mostly associated with eternal things. We know many things are eternal, or what we peceive as eternal. Things like matter and water go through change, but still exist in like quantity throughout the ages. Things like wind are less easy to quantify. Forces are the same way – magnetism and gravity -static attractiveness and repulsion, are harder to measure and describe.

    We sense something separate from all the physical matter and many qualify that as the “unseen”, or “supernatural.” We understand opposing forces in physics and some know the same exist in terms of purity or holiness and impurity or unholiness (good and evil), masculine and feminine, hot and cold, etc.

    As humans, the unseen interacts with the “seen” in us. Physical with the supernatural. It is what gives us “life”. As believers, we attribute that life giving force to God. The Bible says, “For in him we live and move and have our being.” Further the gospel of John says “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” The scripture claims essentially it is the “Word of God” that holds everything in its present state of “togetherness”.

    So Tex is claiming you need to pick a side. It’s in our DNA to pick sides.

  24. Interesting connection to the Oklahoma bombings, Tigre. I really have not pursued that conspiracy or the various details in that incident. Obviously it isn’t as cut and dry as the FBI and the rest of our government would lead us to believe.

  25. AFA the nurse Ratched avatar, I thought Tex was just expressing his feminine side to us. I didn’t realize it was Hillary. :grin: I guess I should have looked closer. I’ll keep that in mind – that and realizing his motivation is always to provoke. :wink:

  26. Now the death threats, Rutherford? Hellooooooo???? Where are you and your MSNBC pals? Why isn’t Lawrence O’Donnell shouting down the protesters for their vitriol and cross-hairs? Here is the opportunity to have “that” discussion. . .

  27. Good flick Huck. Worth the watch. You can read the summary on Wiki – but don’t read the spoilers. Has quite a few subtitles spoken in Dari(?), and I must admit I didn’t know what a Hazara was until last night.

    Though I just read most of it is filmed in China near the Afghan border. :oops:

    Oh well, still gives me an idea of the terrain Gorilla has been talking about.

  28. I just got a call for a foursome, with an invite for my wife on my cell phone. They had to ask if I was married. I’m tempted to call the number back. :lol:

    My wife would kill me if I did. She’s such a prude!

  29. “Really, really, really, really weak (and predictable). No answer after all of that furry over Giffords?”

    But then we all know why, don’t we?

  30. “R”, :lol:

    You know, it didn’t even occur to me maybe that was what she was talking about. First they asked for Gloria, then Mike, and finally asked me if I was interested. I guess they were getting desperate, or something.

    The bad thing was, I was sitting here watching some soft porn thingie (funny, but nudity included) my brother-in-law sent me (hard to believe they make commercials like this overseas).

    And I have to admit, I took a peek out my backyard, wondering if one of my neighbors was observing. Gulp.

  31. El Bongo is on the tube talking about our new energy policy. And believe it or not, though he’s late to the game as usual, it’s pretty good.

    Sounds like T. Boone Pickens wrote it for him.

    And may I commend are fabulous military once again for delivering the necessary coolant to the nuclear reactor plant in Japan. There’s nobody else in the world that could react that quickly with that kind of material. In addition, I understand they are producing drinking water on the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan.

    Our military makes me proud.

  32. I’m sorry but I just have to ask….Rutherford what f@#^ing drugs are you on????
    I’m lost on whether I am to find your recent posts to be witty and provocative or batshit crazy.
    Is the assertion that Newts infidelities are linked to patriotism your actual position????

  33. LOL C’mon Alfie … I know I may not be that good at satire but do you REALLY think I buy Newt’s “I loved my country so much I cheated on my wife” excuse? No … the post was deliberately one big joke.

  34. Tex, Bill Kristol is really off his game when the best he can do is a couple of snarky paragraphs about the “President of China”.

    After blowing billions upon billions of dollars in Iraq and Afghanistan, you guys just don’t learn do you?

    Yeah it’s time for a no fly zone in Libya and everything else that entails like bombing Libyan runways.

    Good God man … are you simply addicted to war?

  35. Good God man … are you simply addicted to war?

    You betcha! That’s the ‘merican way! Get with the program, maaaan. We gotta use all that ordnance so we can keep the jobs market stable back home. Yeehaww. Use ‘em if you got ‘em. :twisted:

    Bill Kristol is on my prayer list. I expect him to eventually fly right, God willing.

  36. After blowing billions upon billions of dollars in Iraq and Afghanistan, you guys just don’t learn do you?

    Isn’t that the Obama policy? Blow billions in Afghanistan, adopt the Bush doctrine in Iraq and GITMO, and order the troops to fight with one hand behind their back, maximizing American deaths in the process? What exactly is our foreign policy? Is it still dialogue, grovel and blame America, or sit around with our thumbs up our collective rears voting present?

    So Chumpola, I’m just reporting what Obama said. El Presidente said it would be easier for your Highness to be President of China, and I thought that would be a great idea. It certainly would assure we’d win if he would. :smile:

  37. As for Tex #42 and the crap people are offering him and Kristol.
    Did anyone check out the puff piece from the NYT (linked in the WkStd) that seems to be synergistic in Kristols displeasure with Obamas actions?
    I think R and pool are jumping the gun and flying blind against a good comment Tex ,and in all honesty not a bad piece at all by Kristol.

    Be worried folks that the weekend and events in Japan will allow the EU to something really f@#$ing stupid on Libya.

  38. “Be worried folks that the weekend and events in Japan will allow the EU to something really f@#$ing stupid on Libya.”

    Yep.

    The only thing more stupid than to join someone’s civil war is to join the side that’s going to lose.

  39. :lol: Poolman,

    I’m dying to ask since I consider you a good, old boy (like me) out of the West Texas mold. The kind with enough sense to recognize the inherent weakness of the Woodstock generation, no matter how red our necks might be, and how many times they call us ‘Thumpers’.

    You don’t really think it would be a good idea to revert back to the sorriest exposition of humanity since Caligula, maybe Sodom and Gomorrah, do you? It wasn’t capitalism that failed in that three day orgy of decadence, but hundreds of thousand of parasites wanting something for nothing – love the one you’re with, with an undercurrent of mob rule.

    That mirage have become a huge, drug infested party with a temporary facade of utopia, hiding the fact people behind the scenes were filthy, cold and starving and left a mountain of filth and trash for the land owner. But the end result just a decade later, when these slugs became so-called responsible adults, was pandemic STDs, drug infested neighborhoods, failed schools, multi-generational welfare, a breakdown of society, with amoral and disrespectful children.

    I knew Rutherford still is of the belief in man will somehow reach Lennon’s Imagine, but I was under the assumption you knew better.

    Remember, thou shalt not covet. :wink:

  40. The only thing more stupid than to join someone’s civil war is to join the side that’s going to lose.

    :lol: Classic!

    Isn’t that the Obama Doctrine?

  41. “Unique” name I read this morning. A little background.

    We’ve got a high school program here in Tulsa that has been one of the most dominant sports programs in the nation for years. It used to be predominately black, but over the years has become a magnet school of excellent reputation. It’s a mishmash of all races now. The sports program, though not as dominant as once was, is still one of the best in the area. I don’t know how many men they’ve put in the NFL and NBA, but it is numerous.

    But as you can imagine the basketball team, probably one of the two best in the state, doesn’t consist of white kids wearing horn-rimmed glasses with pocket protectors. Some things never change.

    This morning I was reading about the men’s basketball team one game from winning the state for about the umpteen time. One of their star player’s names is….

    U’ni’que. I’m guessing it is pronounced Oon-e-ikay. There’s a mother out there with a vivid imagination.

  42. Tex, regarding 51…

    I wasn’t at Woodstock. I have some friends who are a little older than I that attended. It was obviously a whole lot bigger than the planners had anticipated, and so was a great mess and disaster from that standpoint.

    But it marked a major point in history that was mostly positive and helped unify the youth of the day, promoting their strength in number and overall desire to end the injustice of war along with a breaking down of social, racial, and sexual barriers.

    The drug abuse and unsanitary conditions were the downside.

    The antiwar and Jesus movement helped spread the message of universal love and did a lot to empower people. That was good. It was also a time of renaissance for music and art. Confronting the “establishment” was really rather patriotic.

    Most, however, ended up being coopted by capitalism in the long run.

    If you want to compare Sodom and Gomorrah, go hang around DC or Hollywood for awhile. Where there is money, there are all kinds of sexual perversions. Mostly what was experienced at Woodstock was public nudity, not anything like the sex trade available to the elite.

  43. As any student of popular music history knows, Woodstock was heaven … it was Eden. Altamont was hell. Every good instinct brought out at Woodstock was turned on its ear at Altamont in 1969. If you haven’t seen “Gimme Shelter”, you owe it to yourself to watch it. Those bad boys of Rock and Roll, The Rolling Stones presided over absolute chaos with security provided by the Hell’s Angels. One man was killed in the audience.

    There was something truly beautiful about the hippie movement but it couldn’t last because it was too naive, too full of drugs and too full of sex without consequences. Everyone blames AIDS on gays but I think AIDS had its root in the free love behavior of the mid to late 60’s.

    A beautiful social experiment gone awry. One of my life’s regrets was that I was born about ten years too late to really appreciate it.

  44. But it marked a major point in history that was mostly positive and helped unify the youth of the day, promoting their strength in number and overall desire to end the injustice of war along with a breaking down of social, racial, and sexual barriers. The antiwar and Jesus movement helped spread the message of universal love and did a lot to empower people. That was good. It was also a time of renaissance for music and art. Confronting the “establishment” was really rather patriotic.

    So patriotic, many of the patriots died of drug overdoes. Removing sexual barriers. The Jesus movement? You think Woodstock had affiliation with a Jesus movement? :lol: Woodstock was an abomination, a sordid and falsely advertised orgy of perversion. Caesar Caligula…

    Most, however, ended up being coopted by capitalism in the long run.

    Naturally, capitalism was at fault. Sure it wasn’t Joooish capitalism?

    As any student of popular music history knows, Woodstock was heaven … it was Eden.

    Yeah, that’s why they were eating oats from the horses, freezing in the rain, and bringing in the Red Cross to tend to the drug overdoses and heat exhaustion. Heaven. :roll:

    Man, you two are seriously screwed up people and horrid judges of anything beautiful. No wonder you’re both confused. Wavy Gravy confused…

    Think I’m wrong, check out the “patriots” now – the ones that aren’t dead, that is. Here’s one of our most famous of liberators who died of barbiturate intoxication a few years hence…. Probably the Jesus Movement. :roll:

  45. hey I’m crazy like this but I’ve always wanted to see the flower get shot out of the rifle into the hippies head. It’s kinda like how I’ve always wanted to see the Pillsbury DoughBoy rip the poking finger off and scream “Stop poking me”!!!!

  46. Man, you live a sheltered life, Tex.
    I do like Hendrix, even to this day. Too bad for the overdose, it ended many a talented musician’s life, along with plenty of other celebrities in modern America. Too much, too quick, and with a feeling of immortality, many have died that way.

    I’ll remind you of what you deem “beautiful.” Weapons of war toasting human beings deemed “enemy”, like one of the videos the ape provided. Who is it that’s warped? :roll:

  47. Poolman, good grief.

    An uneducated rube and coward like you has no business calling anybody sheltered. Somebody not smart enough to not file a tax return for seven years doesn’t even rate as an adult. You must be the dumbest man on earth.

    Woodstock was a repeat of the last days of the Roman Empire. We still feel the effects of that useless burn the bra, greasy generation, now more than ever, and now some of those self-serving, aging hippies serve in positions and power and have taken the country to the brink of destruction. The Worst Generation, except possibly the music.

    Add to the fact you only exist because of brave men fending for and protecting you, and the generosity of our country, that actually angers me. Your ilk is simply not worth the generosity or bravery.

    That you call yourself is Christian is so offensive, that it saddens me there are clowns like you out there. A blind man can see you’re a phony.

  48. Well….I found a place for my family. I’m buying it on a land contract. Super busy getting it ready and coming up with some cash.

  49. “The Worst Generation”

    Fuck yeah they are. Outside of the music and the Viet Nam Vets…..

    The only generation in American history that engineered society to makes things WORSE for the next generation. Not to mention what their entitlement programs did to blacks.

    The generation that made killing a baby in the womb routine. Got to love them.

    And there is just so many of them on the top of this inverted triangle! Atlas can’t even hold them up.

  50. When Woodstock meets Jesus? Are you kidding me? The narcissistic and shallow generation living in the shadows of the greatest generation, the one of their fathers, just can’t stop telling us how great they are. Prophets my ass.

    Baby boomers can blow me.

    My parents don’t count. Leave them alone.

  51. Rabbit, glad to hear you’re getting settled elsewhere.

    As for the inverted triangle, those members of the Woodstock nation now at the top of it were sellouts. It’s easy to sit in 2011 and play Monday morning quarterback. Many of those folks had admirable ideals. They thought they could change the world for the better.

  52. AND when it comes to narcissism, are you forgetting the kids born in the late 80’s and early 90’s who think they should be making six figures at age 22? I’m still waiting for another generation to emerge who really want to change the world for the better and not just for the better of their wallet.

  53. Tex,

    I’m generally very hesitant to call anyone an idiot due to the ramifications it holds via the spiritual scorecard, but I will make the exception in your case seeing as you have done everything in your posts befitting of the description. Unfortunately I have met many good ole boys that seem to share all your ignorant attributes. I consider these days a definite low bar in American culture.

  54. Lovely. Thanks heaps for the video, Rutherford (the Newt one). That makes it one too many times now that I have thought about Newt in bed.

    Speaking of disturbing mental images – (joke’s over now) – this morning I saw a very little boy in the arms of a rescue worker being carried to an awaiting transport. Thankfully the child seemed fine but I can’t stop seeing his tiny little hands holding on for dear life to the man’s arms and wondering if the boy’s parents made it out alive. I mean, would he be in anyone else’s arms just then if they had? Tragic. :(

    Shame on the “Shame! Shame! Shame!” rebuke.

    Oh, and what violent rhetoric? **SARC**

  55. Muffy, watching those images of those small children is horrifying. My heart aches watching those people who suffered this epic tragedy. Their so shocked, they don’t even weep – it’s a blank stare. Whole cities swept away?

    They had some new videos this morning that I hadn’t seen and to watch that torrent blow away everything in its path was about horrific as it gets. I think this one is even more disturbing to watch than the 2004 Indonesia one, because the images have been even more graphic.

    Who knows how many are really dead. Throw in the reactors, and you wonder if that part of Japan will ever recover.

  56. They’re instead of their above…. :mad:

    Tigre, Poolman is an enigma – but his video responses thinking he’s schooling us are even stranger than the man. I think we’re working with a few cans short of a six pack here. Part TV evangelist, part panhandler, part flower power, there’s something that traumatized this poor soul. :smile:

  57. Does anyone but newt think he has a chance in 2012?
    He is in the same loser league as Sarah.

    Newt/Sarah in 2012!!!

  58. Nope. Nothing helps the GOP more than MSNBC cult continuing to focus its simulated outrage on them. Thanks for being lemmings Dog and Rutherford. It helped immeasurably last November.

  59. Tiger…IF (and that’s a big “if”) Rutherford, Poolman and Dog even bother to click the link, they will immediately discount its content, because the only clips offered are from Fox and its affiliates.

    Of course, the article explains why, but they would have to read it.

    And none of them will even bother to explain how Fox and its affiliates are lying on this story, either. They will see the word “Fox News” claim it is full of lies, and be done with it.

  60. So, I am employed by my university as a graduate assistant. On my latest paycheck was a deduction to the UAW (yes, that UAW), who is the union for people who aren’t teachers at my school.

    I have not filed the paperwork given to me to enter that union. I am not a part of that union. I am not protected by that union.

    Yet, as mandated by California law, a portion of my earnings are given to that union. They are, in turn, allowed to use MY money for anything THEY want…which as we all know, is to elect more democrats/union shills.

    Would any supporter of organized labor like to explain to me how this is right?

  61. Huck, the best part of that story on death threats against GOP cheese heads is that the person questioned in the matter was a woman! Yeeehaaaa …. now even liberal women are taking their orders from Sarah Palin:

    Don’t retreat, reload!!!! You betcha! :-)

    Isn’t it amazing that women, following the example of Palin, Bachmann, Angle etal have pretty much stopped being the “fairer sex” when it comes to politics?

    P.S. The article admits that a Google search on MSNBC coverage would be fruitless because MSNBC does not publish transcripts of their daily reporting … only of their prime time shows.

    But I will say for the record that it is indeed wrong, unjust and unfair to cover violent GOPhers and not cover violent Libs.

  62. Assuming that our earliest memories are at about age 5, do you realize that a 70 year old Japanese guy now has in his memory seeing his country bombed to smithereens in 1945 and then torn asunder by Mother Nature in 2011? That’s one helluva pair of bookends.

  63. So this is how God works in mysterious ways. We have a country called Afghanistan which is nothing but a blight upon the world and Japan which contributes to the world economy and is for the time being no one’s enemy and who does God choose to throw the ultimate smackdown upon?

    And now we’re supposed to pray for the Japanese? How some of you live with “faith” at a time like this, is totally beyond me. :evil:

  64. And now we’re supposed to pray for the Japanese? How some of you live with “faith” at a time like this, is totally beyond me.

    Nature is cruel, plate tectonics are required for the survival of this earth, including heat required for all of life, just as hurricanes replenish the food supply . If I jump off a building, all the prayer in the world will not stop the physical laws of the universe – nor should I expect them to. Only on rare occasion, for whatever reason, does God supernaturally intervene.

    Why do you blame God?

    If I build on a fault line, at some time there will be consequences. Don’t think California, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska won’t suffer the same fate someday – maybe Missouri and Arkansas as well.

    If you think you’re clever or have some insight as if somehow this tragedy disproves the existence of God, or maybe as you try to make the feeble attempt to purposely be offensive by referring to God as some Cosmic rapist, I say you are without the least bit of understanding. God makes no such promises to any of us – Christian or not.

    I would remind you Japan is pretty much like you – secular and irreligious. How do you know that isn’t more offensive to God than even the practice of false religion, if you require some counter argument?

    The real question I have for God is not why natural disasters occur and people die, but why he allows arrogant men to believe in the sovereignty of man to continue to exist and make mockery – many like Herod even thrived.

  65. Nope. Nothing helps the GOP more than MSNBC cult continuing to focus its simulated outrage on them. Thanks for being lemmings Dog and Rutherford. It helped immeasurably last November.

    Shhhhhhh. Remember your Sun-Tzu: When your enemy is making a mistake, get out of his way.

  66. R @87: that takes the cake. The dumbest thing I have ever read — and that includes my own writing. :roll:

  67. Death threats against republicans and democrats are on the rise. People are pissed at the politicians. Can you blame them? Why should I doubt them, even from Fox? Fox is still real news 60 percent of the time. Some of the best truth comes from them. And some of the best bullshit, too. Fair and balanced.

    Rutherford, this planet was deeded to evil after the fall. It is no respector of persons, good or evil. Notice the multitude of wars, earthquakes, and the shortening of the days? All predicted. Mark chapter 13, Matthew chapter 24, and Luke chapter 21. Next, stuff starts falling from the sky. The excitement is just beginning. Hold tight! It’s going to be a hell of a ride.

  68. I agree. I just can’t bear seeing the little ones like that. I seriously stays with me.

    I couldn’t sleep for a week last month when I saw that toddler get run over by an SUV.

    I just can’t grasp why little ones have to face such horrors.

  69. I’m picking up strange shit on my short wave. Same thing happened during the Haitian quake.

    Shortwave bands light up during these times.

    I’m sure a military radioman or crypto guy could make sense of the weirdness, but to the Rabbit’s untrained ear its strange sounding, yet almost nostalgic in a spooky kind of way.

    Its kind of cool that old school radio is still essential despite satellites and the internet.

  70. Rabbit, I read an article some years ago, where they had made a prediction that short wave radio may be able to pick the movement of tectonic plates….true story.

    Maybe you’re on to a scientific discovery! :smile:

  71. Regarding 90 … I have a simple question. If God does not choose to shake Japan loose from its bearings, why should anyone pray to Him for the safety of the Japanese post-disaster? Does He influence or doesn’t He? Might it be that prayer is therapeutic for those helpless to do much else?

    It’s one of the biggest bones I have to pick with organized religion … a God we don’t blame for really nasty sh*t but one who we praise for all the blessings in our lives. My only explanation for this inconsistency is God is a Republican. :neutral:

  72. God will use this to bring glory to Himself. There will be many turn toward Him. Many miracles can happen in the midst of this disaster. Now believers have things to pray for. How many do you think were praying it wouldn’t happen? Not many, I would assume. How many were living Godly lives? These things remind us we have no control. No guarantees. We even made the nukes that made this event more catastrophic. How smart is that? More life threatening/altering wormwood to the mix.

    Be grateful for every breath. Spend your time wisely. It is more important to love each other and build relationships, than to consume and build wealth. Wealth, along with safety and comfort can go in an instant. Don’t take it for granted.

    And, for a God who gives some plenty of grace, here’s another opportunity for the banker elites of the world to be compassionate and put forth enormous aid to help humanity. A chance for them to reap eternal rewards, if they choose. To see a need and provide anything in their power to take care of it. Or rather tighten their grip and profit from this disaster, as most have for generations.

    We have freewill to make choices. Fate, karma, grace, faith, compassion, service, mercy, and love. These are intangible things, yet we know they exist and operate within our midst. The degree in which they exist is relative to the amount each of us exerts and how much is exerted on our behalf.

  73. The story of Jonah is a good one. God tells Jonah to go preach repentence to Ninevah because of their evil ways or He will toast them. Jonah tries to run away, but God brings near disaster to the ship he runs to as he’s trying to avoid God. Jonah finally decides the only way to save the ship and crew is for him to be tossed overboard. He gets swallowed by a huge swimming creature(maybe a fish) until it spits him onto the shore three days later.

    After spending time inside a fish, I imagine he looked pretty intense, so the folks on the shore of Ninevah believed the message and straightened out their act. Funny though, Jonah was pissed that God didn’t toast them. Likely though, they would not have repented if he just went there in the first place. They just might have been toast. :grin:

  74. “Now that’s funny Tigre, I thought you’d agree with me that it’s wrong, unjust and unfair to cover violent GOPhers and not cover violent Libs.”

    No, not at all. It’s the MSNBC crowd’s shameless hypocrisy and intellectual dishonesty. It was moronic when MSNBC played fearful victim/scaredy-cat to gain cheap points on the back of a tragedy like Giffords’ shooting. It still is. Where’s YOUR outrage and fear? Really R.

    Republicans aren’t pretending they’re threatened by it all. They’re laughing at the obvious display willful blindness. It’s undeniable proof of the left’s insincerety and media bias we all know exists, yet the left denies.

    R, it’s that the truly strange you silence if not downright endorsement of the rhetoric now highlights how full-o-shit you MSNBC types really are.

  75. If God does not choose to shake Japan loose from its bearings, why should anyone pray to Him for the safety of the Japanese post-disaster?

    Whether you agree with the supposition or not, every breath you take, everything you love, everything you enjoy and take pleasure, your very existence is due to Him. Again I ask you, why is that you deny God every second of every day, then when catastrophe or tragedy hits, all the sudden God is to blame?

    The only thing you can “accuse” God of is allowing it to happen. Is it God’s fault that we choose to built on known fault lines? Or that we choose to harness the atom for our insatiable desire for energy, only to quake with fear when its power uncontrollable? You’ll accuse God of being at fault. I’ll pray that He chooses to intervene to save us from our foolishness. See the difference?

    Does He influence or doesn’t He? Might it be that prayer is therapeutic for those helpless to do much else?

    And I tell you in return. If God is God, worship God. If man is god, worship man. But you can’t play both sides of the fence without being the hypocrite. And you are the hypocrite.

    It’s one of the biggest bones I have to pick with organized religion … a God we don’t blame for really nasty sh*t but one who we praise for all the blessings in our lives.

    And it’s my biggest bone with you. You’re quick to condemn God for every ill on earth, but will deny His very existence when life is good. And if I am right about who and what God is, then that makes you not only a hypocrite, but the most ungrateful man I know.

    My only explanation for this inconsistency is God is a Republican.

    No, He is not. God is God. To paraphrase a famous quote, “He is who He is” and people of antiquity understood this. Modern man in his arrogance and rebellion, believing in his own assurance and worth, puts his faith in man. Look what that has got us. Japan is the end result.

    Don’t think America will not get her just desserts – it’s as assured as the sun rising. I’ll ask for mercy – you’ll shake your fist and condemn – that is, when you’re not looking so foolish as to deny the existence.

    Is your condemnation for our benefit, or His?

  76. “PRESIDENT OBAMA is taping his NCAA picks today, and they’ll be revealed tomorrow on ESPN. … NATE SILVER’s March Madness bracket http://nyti.ms/fc2qH9 … At 11:25 a.m., Obama will tape interviews from the Map Room with KOAT Albuquerque, KDKA Pittsburgh and WVEC Hampton Roads on education reform and the need to fix No Child Left Behind.”

    Whew. Thank God. I was worried that with all that is going on, Obama might have forgotten about brackets. Maybe he’ll show everybody how cool he is swatting flies at his Map Room interviews. Now that’s leadership. . .

  77. The Fat Granny crowd in live action! Yeehaw! Yippie! Poolman, were you there too?

    How about a little music from that wonderful Woodstock Generation of peace and love to celebrate and make things right! Right On Poolman!

    ♫ ♫ ♫ Give me an “F! …”F”! give me a “U”! …”U”!
    Give me a “C”! …”C” Give me a “K”! …”K”!
    WHATS THAT SPELL? …”FUCK!” “FUCK!” “FUCK!” “FUCK!” “FUCK!” ♫ ♫ ♫

    Well come on all of you big women, Uncle Sam is there to help again,

    Don’t worry about your looks and play with his gun, we’re gunna have a whole lotta fun.

    CHORUS
    And its 1,2,3 what are we waiting for?
    Don’t ask them, they don’t give a dam, the next abortion is on Uncle Sam,
    and its 5,6,7 let seal those fetus’ fates. Well there ain’t no time to wonder why…those babies gotta die.

    Now come on doctor don’t be slow, why woman’s fetus gotta go,
    There’s plenty good money to be made, Planned Parenthood diggin’ in the womb with a spade.
    Just hope and pray that when they abort the baby, don’t happen to be your old lady

    CHORUS
    And its 1,2,3 what are we waiting for?
    Don’t ask them, they don’t give a dam, the next abortion is on Uncle Sam,
    and its 5,6,7 let seal those fetus’ fates. Well there ain’t no time to wonder why…those babies gotta die.

    Now come on mills we gotta move fast, your big chance is here at last.
    Nite you go out and hop in those beds, cuz the only good unborn is one that’s dead,
    You know that play can only be won, when you fuck’um again and start the fun!

    CHORUS

    Now come on mothers throughout the land, get Uncle Sam to pay the man
    Come on fathers don’t hesitate, butcher your sons and seal his fate.
    Don’t be the last one on your block, to have your aborted kid dumped in the box.
    ♫ ♫ ♫

    FUCK YEAH POOLMAN! SIGN THOSE PETITIONS!!!!

  78. Gullible as busted on video bullshit? Hurt much to have your bubble burst that often? That’s your girls in action Poolman. :smile: Sign another Planned Parenthood petition Al-Poolman, the good “christian.” (snicker)

    About the only thing you’ve been coherent about here Al, is the fact you have become my virtual punching bag. Or better, push your head down. I’ve got more in store for you. :wink:

    Someone once said, better to be dumb, than open your mouth, or you case in conjunction with fingers, and remove all doubt. :wink:

  79. I bought Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots for my kid two years ago but the truth is it was really more for me …. reliving my child hood. Heck I paid an embarrassing amount of money for an original version of Battling Tops off e-bay. I’ve played it with my daughter at most 5 times but it sure did bring back some great memories.

    Turning in early tonight gentlemen and ladies … this daylight savings time always kicks my ass the first week.

    P.S. Was I the only one who did NOT know that Gilbert Gottfried was the voice of the duck in the Aflac commercials?

  80. Nope. I didn’t know Gilbert Gottfried was the voice of the duck either – so I was last.

    Well “R”, my old friend. Tonight me and the family drove over to meet some family and watch my Alma mater kick the living crap out of the bookworms from Harvard in the NIT. It reminded me of our debates – over with at halftime. :cool:

    Lot of fun, and Hawwwvard made a game of it in the second half. Tommy Amaker, the Harvard coach, was a Duke grad I believe and a good guy and coach. He just didn’t have the horses to say with a Big XII school.

  81. R, I’m curious when you’re going to do a Leading from the Front expose on Obama. I mean, from Japan, to the Middle East, to the Fedeal Budget and Wisconsin, this guy has been nothing but under a rock…

  82. Not until his brackets are done, Gorilla. After that, and his third golf match this week, he’s going to try his hand at being the leader of the free world.

  83. Well it’s to be expected that after eight years of us making fun of Bush’s vacation schedule, we should expect a ribbing every time Obama does anything the least bit trivial. Hell, a lib called my show Sunday and complained about Obama attending the gridiron dinner when he should have been planning his attack on Libya. :lol:

  84. Regarding 113, Tex there is a reason why we have the Ivy League. It’s because for the most part these nerds don’t stand a chance of beating the general populace in athletics. I’m not big on sports but it does me proud when Harvard is able to make a dent outside the Ivy League, which they have done in the past in I believe basketball and hockey.

  85. For the record, I don’t blame God for bad things happening. Because of the utter randomness and chaos of life (albeit explained by science, as in the case of earthquakes and tsunamis) I find the notion of an intervening God utterly absurd. I don’t blame Him for causing bad nor do I praise Him for causing good because quite simply, I don’t believe He is there in the first place playing a daily role in what goes on here.

    Some supernatural force may have kick started this whole weird thing we call life. Some sense of karma may exist in our current daily activities. But there is no one to pray to. And if there were, He would have to be a madman based on what goes down in the world every day.

  86. Rutherford, it’s not just vacation. Obama can’t even vote “present” during these critical times and multifaceted crises. Too busy worried about campaigning rather than leading. While the left (MSNBC) gives him a pass, I thank God he wasn’t commander-in-chief on 9/11.

  87. I thank God he wasn’t commander-in-chief on 9/11.

    Likely it wouldn’t have happened if Obama was CIC. And surely, the response would have been very different if he was and had any of the power you assert the CIC has in this country.

    We all know Cheney was in charge and now evidence shows he was a key player in the event. Google Norman Mineta’s witness before the 9/11 commission – now with supporting documents from Secret Service notes recently made public via the FOIA.

    Elementary detective work.

  88. Likely it wouldn’t have happened if Obama was CIC. And surely, the response would have been very different if he was and had any of the power you assert the CIC has in this country.

    You meant to say likely wouldn’t have happened on 9/11, right? You weak kneed cowards, when Obama was first elected, used to have a big laugh over Obama has protected us for 87 days, Obama has protected us for over 88 days, YUCK, YUCK. The Ft. Hood happened and you grew silent. Then we had several more attempts by homegrown Muslim radicals in CA and NY to kill civilians by the grace of God were stopped. 9/11 would have happened no matter who the President.

    I’m sure what you meant to say more clearly was after 9/11, there would have been no response by Obama. Too busy partying at the Whitehouse.

    Personally, Obama has gotten to be such a nothing President, it would be for the best of the country if Obama stood up one day and announced, “Michelle and I don’t really want to be 1st Lady or President anymore, so we resign immediately. Thanks for the invite and it’s been fun living large on your dime. Historic, but we’ve realized from the start we’re way in over our heads. We’re outta here.”

    The damage this insufferable fool has caused in 26 months is in calculable, both domestically and foreign. If it has proven anything, it is Obama is incapable of real leadership. Obama has become a global joke, everyone knows it, both our allies and our enemies know it, some now starting to grumble about it. Libs deny it – but they know it. And so it goes…

  89. Here’s what weak men like Poolman will never mention as he shucks and jives for a failed President. Wholesale food and energy costs…

    Food Prices rise the Fastest Since 1974

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Wholesale-prices-up-16-pct-on-apf-3777454020.html?x=0&.v=1

    And notice how Yahoo, in bed with the feckless AP Lib site in bed with Obama, tries to spin this: besides energy and basic staples, inflation was tame!! :?: If that weren’t such bad news, on another day, this would make for comic gold. As long as you don’t eat, don’t drive, don’t heat or cool your home; as long as whatever you purchase doesn’t use petroleum as feedstock, hey everything is great and the economy is in recovery!!!!

    Utter and complete bullshit. Liberals and honesty are inversely related naturally.

    The only satisfaction besides to say, “I Told You So”, I can derive from this horrid news, is that the people who will suffer the consequences the most, are the ones trying to spin Obama’s abject failure as President.

    Congratulations on that historic 2008 vote, electing an imbecile for President to assuage your own personal failures as people. The absolute worst choice in your absolute worst day. Elections have consequences. And this time, you Obama voters will feel the wrath of those consequences.

  90. This one is directed right at you and your fallacious charges Rutherford – the so called hardness of Conservative Christians vis-a-vis social justice as defined by you. Here’s another Lib lie we can put to rest….by simply following the money.

    Christians Obsessed With Gays and Abortion?

  91. Are really a poolman, Poolman?

    I have no doubt you have a website to support your conspiracy theories, even though we all know Elvis did it.

    It’s your response to what I said that proves you have an organic brain or substance problem.

    “And surely, the response would have been very different if he was and had any of the power you assert the CIC has in this country.” :roll:

    Huh? What power did I assert the CIC has in this country? Is it the power to go on vacation rather than even giving the appearance of leadership, or are you just steering things into your conspiracy theory again?

What's on your mind?
