Did you miss the post above mine in which Republicans were branded as hateful, racist, intolerant, lacking empathy and fearful?


If someone says a hateful, racist and intolerant statement...is it wrong to call them out about it???

Are you telling me that if Person A makes a racist statement, and then Person B calls them out for being a racists...that those two people are equally wrong???



You can't say anything that Obama hasn't been NOT guilty of himself.

It wasn't a personal attack, but a political attack, it's hard to ignore the obvious. Sorry, really

And you laugh at my source.



Your "source" is an anonymous chain email.

If you want to prove all those are the truth...then go find the facts and come back with them.

It's shameful that you didn't verify them in the first place...shows how serious you are about this.


Is it common that you believe everything you read on the internet...or is it only the things you want to be true, regardless if they are actually true or not???


I could say exactly the same thing about your replies. You seldom reply with any facts or statements but generally reply with ridicule and innuendo. You attack sources and if you do not attack the source, you attack the OP. If you don't attack the OP then you ridicule the opinion.

[I removed this paragraph out of decorum]

I know there are things wrong with this country but I still would like to see it succeed as it did before you were born.

People were poor then but you could still leave your car unlocked and didn't have to worry about someone coming into your house and robbing you. The local business knew you by your first name. A person's word was as good as cash. People worked. People who did not work had a reason. It was shameful to be on welfare and people went without rather than go on the dole. People took whatever job they could find just to have work. Work was a sign of responsibility and personal satisfaction no matter how a person disliked their job. Now, work is seen a slavery for those who believe it is more fun to cheat the system. The opinion seems to be if one can't have the job they want, they would rather open the mailbox every month for their beer money or steal it.

Being arrested was not something someone wanted to happen. Now, it is a badge of honor. Having an illigitimate child was a disgrace, now it is acceptable to have a brood of illigitimate children and be on welfare for generations.

Yes, we did create that business ourself. We worked hard and paid the wages we could afford. We did not expect the government or our employer to take care of us. We were brought up to take responsiblity for our own lives. Now, people (at least 43% of them) expect cradle to grave care by the government.

I have lived a long time and seen most everything. I see corruption in the government. I see businesses take advantage of people. I see the government spending more than it should. I see people taking advantage of the system. I also see corruption in the families. I see families that spend more than they should. This is a society of instant gratification. If they don't have what it takes in their pocket, they want to put their hands in someone else's pocket. That is morally wrong and reprensible. To promote that tenet is also morally wrong and reprehensible.

We have a president who believes he should take from those who earn it and give it to those who don't. He was elected by people who hoped for change back to the days I spoke of. Now, he is going to be re-elected by those who want their hands in another's pocket. All of the things that are wrong with this country are going to get worse. This is the danger of the tyranny of democracy and not the workings of a Constitutional Republic.

You have to look at Obama's direction. It is to financially bankrupt this country and have the entire population dependent on government. That is how Rome fell. This is how America will fall. This is his plan and it appears the plan of those who support him.

I don't know why people want to see this country destroyed but they are doing it and doing it with enthusiasm. I don't know why they think they regime will remember them when control is complete. This isn't about the people. This is about the destructon of America by those who hate it, from the inside.

I am tired. I have to work tomorrow.

Your most obedient servant Nite_Wing

Never heard the left ever condemn calling Gop women "sluts" and other names that can't be said on here.

Never heard the left ever condemn calling the GOP racists,stupid,redkneck,.bigots and everything else they come up with.

Pot calling the kettle but wait the left never ever says "anything bad or denigrate people".

Guess people forgot Obams comments on Leno about mentally handicapped people.
edit on 8-8-2012 by neo96 because: (no reason given)




They can dish out all of the jokes, and all of the very sincere, and NOT joking insults they want, but one joke on them, and they get all defensive. Go figure.....

This is about as relevant as those people that complained about the "Obama-as-the-Joker" pics, but never said a word about the "Bush-as-the-Joker" pics.

What you are experiencing is called nostalgia. Everyone gets it...it's why everyone thinks the cartoons from their childhood is the best. You're one of those old people that think they understand modern society and you just don't. US society in the past was incredibly racist and sexist, why would anyone want to live in a time where open discrimination was considered normal and completely legal?


People were poor then but you could still leave your car unlocked and didn't have to worry about someone coming into your house and robbing you.


People still can do that, unless you live in a ghetto or high crime area. All of the violent crimes have fallen..

In 2009 America's crime rate was roughly the same as in 1968, with the homicide rate being at its lowest level since 1964. Overall, the national crime rate was 3466 crimes per 100,000 residents, down from 3680 crimes per 100,000 residents forty years earlier in 1969
en.wikipedia.org...




The local business knew you by your first name


They still can if you live in a small enough town and go there all the time. What does this have to do with the quality of the country?


A person's word was as good as cash.


I'm sorry but there were always con-men and liars....you're living in some sort of fantasy land


People worked.


People still work, our employment rate is like 93-95%. The majority of the poor have jobs.




It was shameful to be on welfare


It is still shameful to be on welfare


The opinion seems to be if one can't have the job they want, they would rather open the mailbox every month for their beer money or steal it.


Then why is our employment rate in the 90s? Why is all the major crime down?


Being arrested was not something someone wanted to happen. Now, it is a badge of honor.


No, it really isn't. 99.9999% of the USA does not think being arrested is an honor.


Having an illigitimate child was a disgrace, now it is acceptable to have a brood of illigitimate children and be on welfare for generations


You can't be on welfare for generations. The most you can stay on it is 5 years...most states are like 2-3 years.


Now, people (at least 43% of them) expect cradle to grave care by the government.


No they don't. Do you think most people actually want to be on welfare? It is not a glamorous life, you are living in poverty in usually some of the worst neighborhoods imaginable.

Also, social security isn't welfare, people paid into it and are getting their money back, which is part of that 40% statistic.


I see corruption in the government.


There has always been corruption in the government


. If they don't have what it takes in their pocket, they want to put their hands in someone else's pocket.


So now all Americans are pick pockets



We have a president who believes he should take from those who earn it and give it to those who don't.


You're talking about taking from the poor/middle class and giving it to the banks, right? Then I agree


Now, he is going to be re-elected by those who want their hands in another's pocket.


Yeah, goldman sachs and crew will re-elect him. Gotta take more of the middle classes money and give it to their rich selves.


It is to financially bankrupt this country and have the entire population dependent on government.


This country is already financially bankrupt. There is no mathematically possible way to pay off the debt that we do not owe anyway.

Romney wants to do that. Raise taxes on everyone that makes UNDER 200k a year...while giving cuts to the 1%. Great plan huh? Bankrupt everyone else and give it to his CEO & banker friends.

He supports giving tax cuts to corporations that outsource American jobs. How can people work if there aren't enough? People are going to go on foodstamps if they cannot afford food with their low paying service jobs.

It is not nostalgia. It was life.
Yes, I wish it was back and not what we have now.
But all I got was "Hope and Change."
Hope we get it back-we didn't.
Change-America becomes socialist.
America has changed for the worse.
It was changd by socialists, apologists, political correctness, and those who make excuses for everything.
Based on your "facts" life must be wonderful for everybody and I just don't recongize it.
I will tell my out of work neighbors.

He said pretty much what I think every time I see an Obama sticker on a car.

By every possible metric, Obama has been a failure. He's a liar, a cheat and he's corrupt. He knows nothing about business or governing and lives by his teleprompter. He's taken away our right to privacy and right to Habeus Corpus and now is in the business of targeted assassination without trial, even if you're an American citizen.

I simply can't think of a more accurate description for somebody who still supports this buffoon we have in the White House. That being said, I think it's unbecoming for a local representative to take such an approach. I've also seen idiot liberals gang up on Christians in public for not support sodomy and other abhorrent behavior.

I can see how how Obama hoodwinked the lefties in the last election but given his complete and utter failure, I can't think of any other way to describe somebody who still supports that criminal.

Your post is proof that you can find data on the internet to pretty much support any point you wish to make. It is also proof that some people believe the propaganda that is thrown at them. YOU get your facts from garbage published online and you eat it up, hook line and sinker. Us OLD people actually LIVED it and we have seen with our own eyes how things have changed, we don't need to find other peoples' flawed data to back us up.

Whether or not you wish to admit it, this country has sunk in many ways. Family values, standard of living, morals, education, economically, etc. Of course, your only frame of reference is what you are seeing now or have seen in the last 20 years or however old you are. My frame of reference is the change, for the worse, that I've seen before my eyes.

No...The New Republicans appeal to folks lesser selves...Hate, intolerance and always fear.

Like the crowd shouting "let em die!" at the gop debates when asked about the uninsured.

Like the crowd throwing dollar bills and shouting at the paralized vet at the Rally to stop healthcare reform.

It is folks who have a weak voice of conscience and instead give voice to thier basest thoughts....hate, racism, intolerance...they see lack of empathy as a strength.

Alas..I miss genuine conservatives.

Wow, your post is epic. We see how tolerant YOU are in your response to Chik-Fil-A. The militant gays would kill every living Christian if they had their way. Don't preach to me about "hate", "tolerance" or "fear". It makes you look like a total ass. I'm guessing you have one of those stickers as well, hypocrite.

By definition, wouldn't it be safe to say that the guy who made the comment was mentally deficient? Then why is it okay to bash HIM? You hateful, intolerant, retardphobe lefties. You should be ashamed of yourself! Oh, the humanity!

You know all I have caught is the headline so was the guy joking or running off at the mouth? If he was joking it was in poor taste. There is a reason I don't run for office and it is my inability to keep my mouth shut when my emotions are involved. I feel this is a disqualifying character. I see no reason I should accept that type of behavior from another. It is not dignified to the position. If you can't articulate your opinion in a civil manner you are unfit for public service.

But the real reason for my response is I think I get your core belief. I just wonder why you see the cause so differently? I too remember when. Back when the top tax rate was over 90%, back before "they" built the sea of housing developments. Back when you believed the company you worked for would be there for you as you were for them. look at it now. Did some socialist come and do this? Did some socialist come tell you that building endless housing complexes and putting a Walmart in was a strong economic plan? Did some socialist come and buy up your local factories up, close them down and ship the jobs over seas? Wake up man (or woman). I am not a socialist by any stretch but I keep hearing this term over and over, it is the latest bogey man of the right. I had communists under my bed for the first 40 years of my life now I have socialists in my banks vault passing out my hard earned money while I sleep. And the president is leading the pack?

And now to the final insult. The right will put up the very poster child of everything that is wrong with our country. A man who profited immensely by gutting American industry, and there will still be those who will vote for him? I hear it every darn day, this country is going to crap, then comes Mitt Romney, I am Mitt Romney, I bring you crap and they say he's a good man. If I had hair I would pull it out.

Well that was a fantastic emotional rant about the "good ol days"...but again...no facts.

And you didn't even attempt to prove any of the points in your chain email...how predictable.


So...would you like to just admit that your chain email is baseless propaganda and that you believe it without proof because it fits your agenda???

Or are you going to actually try to prove any of them???

Nice to also see that you watch, and worse, listen to Bill O'Reily

By every possible metric, Obama has been a failure.


I'll ask you what I have asked at least three others....prove it.

Let's see the facts...let's see the numbers and figures that proves he is a failure on every possible metric.

I'm guess that you, just like all the others, are going to fail hard on this. Because, when you just repeate what you hear Fox News and Rush Limbaugh tell you...it's easy to pick out and see that you have no idea what you are talking about.

Someone on TV or on the Radio told you he was a failure..you WANT to believe it...so you do and you don't care about the truth of it or looking up any facts on your own.


So let's see the proof...since you are obviously so smart that you can judge others as being "mentally retarded"...let me see you articulate your thoughts into a logical argument with verifiable facts that shows us that to support Obama you must be "mentally retarded".

Republicans making fun of the Mentally Retarded?

This should be a total insult to Sarah Palin who has a Down Syndrome baby.

How low can you go.

Say something Sarah!
