Not suprising, the liberal media calling the "you lie" remark "racist" now. Looks to me like thier the ones so stuck on the issue of race, so who's the racist?

Are you catching any of the ACORN videos that are getting done by the two college students? I swear that has to be true because you can't teach folks to act like that.

And what about Jimmy Carter coming out today say Joe Wilson is a racist. Hmmm Jimmy I seem to remember you were a lame duck president three days after taking office.

That's funny. Nobody took the peanut fucker seriously when he was in office but now that he's yelling "racist" people listen. How the hell can ANYONE come to the conclusion that the remark was racist? Has it come to this? "ANY dissagreement with a person of another race IS racist." I mean, seriously, political correctness has become a cancer that's eating away our ability to EFFECTIVELY communicate with one another in any form.
Can we invite 1616 to come over here and chime in?

Can't attack the issue, can't attack the facts, go after the person and the race card is the easiest way to do it. Why? Because many will back down very quick once you do this.

You want to invite 1616 it's up to you, but I would rather hear from people that are going to add some intelligent debate, not a bunch of cut and past left wing hate propaganda.

The stimulus worked for guys like George Soros. But on the other hand looks like ACORN will not be getting any of this money and that is a good start.

No Acorn = 8 Billion less that the "stimulus package" will cost, correct?

Give or take a couple of $100 million, but the $8.0 bi bi bi bi billion is still there and will probably find its way to some other criminal organization with the group we have in DC.

With the stimulus package from what I gather there is about 70% that hasn't been dispensed yet, why not just not give it out?

Check this out, Jon Stewart slamming ACORN - looks like the mainstream is waking up.

Hi fella's. Been real busy but I'm glad to know you are still "on the radar".

I've just been spitting mad about Jimmy Carter. Can't believe he attended the Naval Academy. He has no more sense than God gave a sheep.

Now this new government program expansion of the Student Loan Program. Another trillion dollars before it's done. Mark my words. You almost need to have your Congresspeople on Speed-dial to complain about stuff.

For instance, when is someone going to ask the President what vetting process he uses if guys like Van Jones and Mark Lloyd get in?

This is unbelievable.

No, Lee. Wish it did but already Acorn is morphing into several different groups that will have their hands out for the 8 billion as soon as the letterhead gets printed.

Way, way, way off topic but this is how my mind works.....

For years, I've been hearing that one of the main reasons for seatbelt and helmet laws is that " we end up paying for these people when they get into accidents and don't have insurance, so we HAVE to make them wear seatbelts to keep our costs down when they go into the emergency room with brain injuries and need care but can't pay for it."

So, does that mean, if we have mandatory insurance for everyone we don't need the seatbelt laws anymore?

Not funny as I too have asked the same question but more towards have they been able to determine if the helmet has saved more lives.

Living in CA where we have the helmet law and talking to many Emergency Medicine DR's many of the injuries they see from motorcycles are broken limbs and massive internal injuries.

RE Jimmy Carter, see how fast his own party is running from him. But, then again Obama and he may have something in common,that is one term presidency.

Well WHY isn't the media (including Fox) hammering the President and/or Spokesman Gibbs about their vetting process? Ask them IF they knew about Jones and Lloyd before hiring them and IF they did, why did they hire them? Does the President go along with their ideals?

Going to watch the CEO of Acorn tomorrow morning on Fox with Chris Wallace? I AM.

Bertha Lewis, now there is another piece of work. Go look up the Philadelphia M.O.V.E. Movement, now fast forward 30 years - but I will say she was one of the smart ones that distanced herself from M.O.V.E way before the 1985 Meltdown.

This is pretty good.
Email heading around you might have already seen.

This shows what a farce everything is out there.



If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you
have laughed and said this is more proof of how he inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?


If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority
stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon
Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have
thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on
their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco deCuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May(Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of what a dunce he is?

If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a
hypocrite?

If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major 20 corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate,
in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?



So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?
Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 5 months
so you'll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.
