    I got accused of being rascist on the weekend. Well, I wasn’t even referring to race, but I was referring to idiot extremists. (On both sides). I didn’t realise that the person I was dialoging with was very much on one side. Ok to call the “others” fools, but saying it to “our side” makes it prejudiced.
    So I will avoid any prejudicial terminology.
    Good timing, good tip and good explanation for me.

    When the topic of Obama comes up, I just stick to the facts of the conversation. People who use personal attacks instead of facts to back up their viewpoint are just plain foolish.

    Is it really important which party gets to loot the country last for the bankers?

    …I find the only people that use that line are the one’s that do say racist remarks…somehow it’s ok to quote made up facts,too.Now,you even get has been guitarists and singers saying offensive asinine statements just to regain some kind infamy and hopfully enough press to get on Celebrity Apprentice..personally,I’m tired of chewing tobacco as being taken as a sign of true political awareness….

    “Democrat” is not an adjective.

    Satirist Andy Borowitz wrote a good one May 7.

    You have entirely too much free time on your hands. But since you do, here’s an assignment: work just as hard at finding similar examples on the other side of the aisle. I promise you it won’t be difficult.

    Impressive rant! I would have to add the observation that each party is blind to certain types of indiscretions on the part of its own members. Democrats, for example, are allowed to make racist remarks without comment where Republicans are castigated for it (“racist” doesn’t appear to be in the Republican catalog of approved insults). As for Republicans… You remember when Oliver North was hailed as a patriotic hero for selling weapons to a country
    that annually celebrated “Death to America Day”? I don’t remember any Democrats
    suggesting that he was a traitor to his country. The accusation of ‘treason’ doesn’t appear to be in the Democrat’s catalog of approved insults.
    Personally, I suspect that there is only one party and that these apparent differences are carefully choreographed.

    “…baselessly call him names like ‘Obummer’. As opposed to ‘basefully’ calling his predecessor names like ‘Shrub’?

    Lest we forget, it was southern DEMOCRATS who tried to block school integration and even had school entrances blocked to prevent a little black girl from entering. It was REPUBL;ICAN president Eisenhower who sent troops to force them to admit blacks.
    Southern DEMOCRATS seceded and started the Civil War to prevent the abolition of slavery. It was REPUBLICAN Lincoln who issued the Emancipation Proclamation to free slaves.

    Obama’s father was Kenyan, so he is at least 1/2 Kenyan. He did go to moslem school in Indonesia (quoted by Obama himself) and if he is not a socialst, then Karl Marx was a proponent of Capitalism.

    This is beyond excellent. I’m tempted to send it to my right-wing friends, but I don’t think they’ll understand it applies to them.

    Well by all means let us praise all the wonderful republicans because they are not racist. What a crock of sh..t!!! And people wonder what is wrong with this country! Racism as been with us forever and on both sides. Look out your front door and you will find racism by republicans, democrats, whites, blacks, ect. and so on……. If that was the real problem with our political system that would be one thing. However, the reality is racism is just a drop in the bucket of our screwed up political system. Party and race don’t really matter when none of these people are working for us any more. If they go into the system wanting to change the world, that dream is crushed by the money lobbyists put into their pockets. Does no one realize that our political system has become a world wide joke?

    And Obama’s mother was from Kansas, which makes him 1/2 “Kansan.” Your point?
