It is amazing...that these days so many people are so gullible to flock to just more lies and deceet by yet another scumbag politician. People in this country every 4 years show their stupidity by getting into arguments, debates, and taking sides when they already know that the final outcome WILL NOT be what was expected.

Its a waste of time and money....empty promises and going back on their word...thats all politics is today...why be a part of it? Its not like your vote matters...THEY get in office who THEY want regardless of what the votes may say.

So 100,000 people flocked to Obama...for what? To see the next liar, the next reason this country continues to fail and spiral out of control...thats awesome..lol

I was going to see him speak here in Kansas City this afternoon, but ventured against it so I can watch the KU - OU game.

Maybe next time.

What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Where does this whole KoolAid crap come from? I don't read enough blogs... which is probably good, actually.

That's very cool. What a crowd!

I went to an Obama Rally today, too! A few local politicians spoke and there was music and food and early voting rides.
It was cool.

I was surprised at the wide variety of people... All walks of life, all ages, all colors... It was a really good feeling.

It refers to the Jim Jones compound suicides where the whole cult drank poison laced kool-aid when ordered to do so by its founder Jim Jones. Though, it's always been speculated that many were force to do so by gun point. Now, its basically slang for cult like behavior.

Wow. I'm really surprised I didn't hear more about this on the news...When I looked at the crowd all I had to say is wow..Amazing...America is starting to realize that McCain is just another 4 years of Bush...

I'm in the non of the above crowd...but he does make some great speeches.

And the Republicans only have themselves to blame. There were 3 or 4 other candidates they could have chosen.

So instead of being mad at people who flock to a candidate that preaches change, remember you guys could have picked at least one that would have brought real change.

You know who else did rallies with 100.000 people? Yeah that's who. (Hitler)

Seriously, this guy is dangerous because of all his fanatics who think he's the messiah and everyone who disagree with him is a racist, a Bush supporter, a neo-con... ect... an evil person.

Both candidates are bought and paid for.

Obama is the most dangerous because of his cult members. He's like Mao or something.

Thanks Kaploink.

Now can you also tell the youngster something about the other Messiah, you know, the one from the 70's?
... aka Obama I, aka Jimmy Carter, aka the pushover Prez.

Please tell him how he damaged this country beyond repair, how he was pals with the Godfather of all terrorists, tell him about the long gas lines,..

Don't forget about his CRA (Community Reinvestment Act) of 1977 which is the catalyst for our current (30 years later) financial crisis.

Please do this for me and I'll tell him I was once like him and almost fell for that trap too because I myself would have voted for Carter had I been old enough at the time.

That good thing was I missed it by one year.

Boy, you ain't wrong! Most of us "cult members" of Obama's would have made perfect Ron Paul "cult members"!


Seriously, Paul would have had THRONGS of supporters that would have dwarfed Obama's.

Some people equate large numbers of supporters with cultism. They couldn't be more incorrect. By definition, a cult is a relatively SMALL movement with beliefs that are outside the mainstream. Obama supporters ARE the mainstream.

Unsurprisingly, some people just don't "get" it, so, in their confusion, resentment and ignorance, label Obama supporters as a "kool-aid drinking cult". That's "kool", though. I don't care what they think.

With Colin Powell the newest member to "drink the Kool-aid", I think the reality is clear.

Actually, we who can see through the hopeium haze DO GET IT as opposed to those ' kool-aid drinking Obama cultists'. Those in cults don't ever see the cult for what it is. You can insult clear thinking non-obamamites and try to pin the labels of 'confused' or 'resentful' or 'ignorant' on us non-cultists, but the reality is ... we non-cultists get it and ya'll don't.


I don't care what they think.

Cultists usually dont'... until the party is over and reality hits.

Agreed. It's really bad that a country of 300 million can't come up with better than McCain and Obama. The corruption influences in our political system, and in the baggage carried by those two, stink. But then again, considering how the people in this country are falling for the rhetoric of McCain and Obama, and considering how they actually believe what those two politicians say .... that's not saying much for the mentality of the American people.

Ahhh. It all makes sense now. I've been hearing people talk about koolaid for a while now and had no idea what was going on. Thanks.


Now that I know what it is... I have to say, it's pretty $#@!'in dumb. Honestly, to have heard it on talk radio and what not, I expected it to be a little more of substance than that.

Just shows how low this election has got that someone can be made fun for being popular. What can't Obama do that is wrong? I bet if he voted with McCain they'd call him a flip-flopper.

Not even a comparison and you know it. I could say the same thing about McCain followers. It's baseless. It has no weight to it.

In fact, I'd say the entire accusation is meaningless. What strikes me as bothersome, is not that you repeat this buzz phrase, but that you apparently think its true.

You honestly think that you and 50% of the country know something that the other 50% don't? That's a pretty arrogant view point considering this exact debate has been going on since the days of Washington.

So which one was drinking koolaide back then? Jefferson or Hamilton?

But no, I don't believe you think that. I think you just said that because you wanted to defend it (the conservative view-point) not because you agree with it. I know, FlyersFan, that you don't actually think that most people who are voting Obama are too fanatical to make an unbiased choice.

Now this guy, Alxandro, on the other hand, he'll say anything to get a rise out of people. He has no business talking politics and looks foolish trying.

Go play in the dirt little piggy.

The best way to knock some sense into people is to first get a rise out of them any way possible, just like your KoolAid edu-macation.

..but if they choose to act like stubborn little kids, if all the preaching in the world doesn't get thru then they'll simpy have to discover things on thier own, as dangerous as it may be.

It'll probably hit you in about a year or two while you are preparing your tax forms.

You mean when I pay less taxes, the economy is functioning better, the deficit is down, wages match inflation, and the power of the dollar goes further?

I guess you're right, I will realize it.

www.sorethumbsonline.com... The last line. "Go ahead President Obam. Solve all the country's problems. make the people comfortable, lazy, and swimmin in surplus again..." Much like Clinton did. Fits doesn't it? Republicans destroyed the country in six years of total rule. Then when the Dems finally got control of the Congress Bush vetoed EVEYRTHING. Bush NEVER VETOED ANYTHING when the GOP had control. But when the Dems try to fix the stuff the GOP broke he vetoed them. Good job guys, destroy America for six years then stop the Dems from fixing it and calling them a do nothing Congress since Bush vetoed anything they tried to pass. The do nothing Congress actually did nothing. This Congress tries but Bush vetoes anything they try.

You obviously dont know anything about government. Our congress is saturated with Dems. Even if Bush Vetoed like you say, Congress can override his veto with 2/3 vote. Go open a history book. Oh by the way, You can thank the dems for all the crap we are in. They are the ones who forced this bail-out down our throats.

Personally Im not supporting AYNONE in this election, but I shall vote McCain because he is the lesser of two evils.

Supporting Obama is no better then believing in Blossom Goodchild. Your gonna wait to see the arrival of a problems being solved, when in fact your gonna see a whole other can of worms be opened.

You don't know how to count do you? The Dems have 51 seats. Not 2/3 of the Senate. That means they can't over ride a veto. And how is it the Dems fault that MCCAIN SUSPENDED HIS CAMPAIGN TO GET THE BILL PASSED! BUSH SAID THAT IF THE BILL WASN'T PASSED THE COUNTRY WOULD FAIL! HIS TREASURY SEC. SAID THAT THE BILL NEEDED TO BE PASSED AND FOUGHT TO GET IT PASSED! So, are McCain, Bush, and the Bush Administration Democrats? No? Then stop trying to blame the Democrats for every thing when its the Republicans.
