Well, that pic certainly blew my morning off to a wonderful start.

I'm going to wait for the first moron to post a claim that its actually Joanie's senior pic.

So let me be the first to speculate. Its actually Rush Limbaugh playing one of his role model games in Haiti.

My eyes hurt.

Duffman

Isn't it that guy who mother'ed a baby? :)

Nobama

Gay people should be banned...there's no natural reproductive path so the category is a lifestyle choice for those that enjoy sodomy with members of the same sex. I personally enjoy sodomy with members of the opposite sex, and the occasional labrador retriever.

chucks

I must admit Ryder, that I thought of Joanie when first seeing that picture. But the thought of her senior picture never crossed my mind. Just thought that she needs to make an appointment to get waxed.

sparky

chucks, when those people are bussed around to various venues, told ahead of time to stand up and shout something disruptive so they will "rattle" the speaker and then sit down, I call that fake outrage. If people have REAL questions and concerns about health care, then more power to them to ask their Congresscritter to do some explaining. But these mobs that are pre-arranged? I call that fake outrage. Do main stream Republicans really want this group of wackos who scream "JUST SAY NO!!!" and say Obama wants to kill your parents and grandparents to be the face of their party??

HoBo

When this picture popped up this morning, I had a really good
laugh.
Thanks.

chucks

And what the fuck has ACORN been doing for the last 10 years bussing loads of people to protedt businesses, corporations, conservetive events?
Sparky, our anger is genuine. Yes, we do have a network of people telling us where we can go to get the politicians attention and perhaps arrange car pooling. I do not see where any of that is evil.
It is the same shit we pulled in the 60's when we protested "the man".

chucks

Speaking of going off topic and protesting "The Man"? Did anybody see this shit from the White House?
"There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can not keep track of all of them at the White House, we're asking you for help. If you see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to [email protected]"
The government is asking citizens to report rumors, the contents of emails and the contents of casual conversations of other citizens to the White House!
WTF?!?! Are we now living in 1950's or 60's Russia or communist China?
What the hell is Obama going to do with this information? Can those who oppose him look forward to a full anal examination by The IRS? Will the men in black suits be knocking on our doors?
Would any of you found any of this acceptable by George Bush?
Fuck!!!! Bastards are after our free speach today. What tomorrow?

Duffman

Sie berichten fischartiger blogging Aufgabe das Weiße Haus sofort!
...and don't you forget it Bub!

Duffman

...and for those who may not have taken German in kindergarten:

'You will report fishy blogging postings to the White House immediately!'

Ari Flescher

You need to watch what you say, chucks.

LucasFoxx

Hmmm...a community based organization that counsels and advocates for low to moderate income Americans, and a Washington D.C. based organization funded by a couple of rich guys and run by former political operatives that were voted out of office or forced to resign in disgrace that offers logistic services and paid "volunteers" to advocate for unpopular policies that benefit only the richest among us. Yeah, ACORN and FreedomWorks are practically the organization.

Speaking of which, that picture of Dick Armey... words fail me...as did my eyes and colon.

sparky

Nobody wants to take away your freedom of speech, chucks. There will be a meeting in Lakewood on health care on the 10th...if you have questions and you are angry, then I think you should go and speak up. There is nothing evil about that. But I bet you can do it without yelling at Adam Smith and calling him a liar. I am sure you can do it without holding up a picture of Obama made to look like Hitler, or any of the other stupid things these people are being paid to do.
At least I think you can. Maybe not. And don't swear at me, chucks. I don't talk to you like that.

chucks

Sorry sparky. I did not consider my cursing as swearing at you, but rereading my post, that is exactly what I did.
Again, sorry, I was wrong.
Thanks for the Adam Smith lead. I will try to be there.

Rich

Well Chuchs, you seem like just the type to be swayed by Medved's propaganda

chucks

Well Rich, I have not listened to Medved in at least 5 years. The only thing that I hear of Medved is what is posted here.

nevets

Sparky, the only fake outrage is coming from your fellow Neo-Coms and you are taking the bait, hook line and sinker.

nevets

From Adam Smiths website.

Thank you chucks. Lets just go back to disagreeing on everything :)

KS

The photo is a spoof -rather gross. There is a lot a garbage and feces being slung in this debate mainly by the progressives. They are using "Rules for Radicals" tactics by Saul Alinsky - many of you should be familiar with this literary bible for leftists published in the lat 60's.

The Statists are being uncovered and they are being shown to be on the wrong side in history. The normal people are getting pissed off at the attempt by the Statists in the White House and Congress to intrude into our lives. Anyone who cancels their town hall meeting without a plausible reason is not worthy of office.

Coiler

Your side has Oily Tits as it's spokeswoman.

Tommy008

Michael Medved whines about Savage and repeatedly takes cheap shots at him and his wildly more successful radio show, although he's too timorous ( hamster-sized balls?) to say his name on the air. He also mails people's roadside litter back to them anonymously, with nasty notes. It's been rumored, though not confirmed, that he dresses up in a blue leotard and a red cape with a giant L on his back, for Litterman). Savage was recently profiled favorably in the New Yorker Magazine, and is the kind of guy that would dump your litter onto the hood of your car and call you a scumbag.

KS

It is clear that Coiler has had an Obotomy, along with Sparkles. I doubt if it will become surgically reversible anytime soon.

KS

Even though he is capable of mood swings, I agree with T008 that Savage is more reputable than the other popular conservative talkers and the New Yorker piece on him was objective and interesting. He has quite a few more listeners than Medved, doesn't mince his words and is not beholden to any one party or special interest - comparably a breath of fresh air compared to the rest.

The rest of you who rag on him ought to listen to him first hand and learn some of the scary and sobering truth that they seldom are exposed to, instead of parroting the standard pathetic progressive talking points of minutia about it.

sparky

The Whine Flu...you has it.

KS

The Obotomy - you has it.

nevets

I heard on KOMO that Rep. Baird just canceled his townhall mtgs and instead will do some teleconferences. The Neo-coms are running scared of having to face thier constituents. They must read the BW, where else would they have learned the "Seattle".

Coiler

Your side uses Rev Phelps tactics, nevets. When sept rolls around, the shtick will grow old. The media is picking up on Freedom works and Dick Armey.

KS

The progressive left has been using brown shirt tactics and whiny propaganda to try and stymie free speech. This [email protected] website is seen as a threat to those who dissent against the White House's health care plan. If that isn't fascism, I don't know what is.

Freedom Works - Dissent - OK, but don't forget Code pink, Media Matters, Moveon.org, and last but not least ACORN.

nevets

The Neo-Coms world is turning upside down. And history is repeating itself. Well...sort of.

America was blindsided in November 08, just as America was blindsided in Dec 41'. And now two famous quotes from Admiral Yamamoto must be bringing fear to President Obama and the rest of the Neo-Coms.

"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

"I can run wild for six months … after that, I have no expectation of success"

Obama and the Neo-coms are just learning the truth of Americas resolve.

joanie

Ah, yes. And ignorance is bliss. Are yo blissful as well?
