Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 11:43pm

Do you agree with Sheriff Daron Hall's decision not to renew office's participation in the 287(g) program and instead shift to the Secure Communities program?

bfra,

Did you hear your boy's speech at his press briefing yesterday when he made his idiotic comment?

He said, quote: "The American people have assumed that if you want to be President of the United States, that your life is an open book".

Interesting from him. So what makes him continue to refuse to "Open" his Book? Could it be because of the writings on it's pages?

He claims Romney should "Open" his books, but apparently feels he is exempt because he has refused to allow a single piece of paper to be shown on himself.

Nazi, Al Gore created the storm by seeding the clouds with hot air, and hanging chads.
Al holds a grudge.

As a gesture of respect,let us all take a moment to salute those whose dollars make it possible through taxation to support those who have so little but retain equal voting power.

The huddled masses are in charge of everything except money and brains. The money changers are in jeopardy but those with the brains will always be in charge.

The 13th amendment was passed in 1865, brrrrk. The 14th in 1868 and the 15th in1870. That was 99 years before Lyndon Johnson got the 1964 bill passed to end segregation in the US.

With LBJ a known racist, he got that bill passed for one purpose; to get the votes from the black Americans for the Democratic party because the democrats brought it up and the black Americans thought the Democrats was favoring them.. The Republicans voted in it's favor to give the black Americans their freedom from segregation.

Now that you're as brilliant as you are, what party controlled congress for the years before that? That bill was passed by the democrats for one reason only; the black vote.

What did he mean when he said they would vote democratic for the next 200 years?:

Don't send gov to Canada they are nice people.

Sorry to disagree with you, Rasputin72, but I don't believe those we have in charge today are ones with brains. If they were, how could this mess have happened?

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 11:07

Our resident Royal put his money into the pot. Without his bankroll would he be less a man?

Interesting, the president's 8 billion coincidence.

yogi tries to defend his racist attitude by calling normal people racist. The reason yogi does like President Obama is because or his color. Case in point; he tell people the only reason they voted for him was his race.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 11:17

Rasputin tries to reason with yogi, because he is making conservatives look like fools. He is one of yours Rasputin...live with it.

By: bfra on 8/22/12 at 11:19

Ben - I am sure you have credentials better than Obama & all his advisers to know what is best . NOT

By: gdiafante on 8/22/12 at 11:28

Ben is broken record in an age of MP3's.

Though I will give Ben some credit...MP3's have more compression so you lose the dynamic range that made vinyl so appealing.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 11:29

I get the feeling that the fringe right is getting nervous. Could they be feeling stress in their decision?

Pete and Repeat; I like that bfra.

Yogi could get a gold medal for twisting and squirming when it comes to blaming the Democrats for slavery and racism. While it is true that a lot of Democrats voted to protect slavery and segregation, what he (yogi) conveniently leaves out is the fact that most of those Democrats were Southern Democrats and that the division on the issues of slavery, segregation and voting rights where based more on where you lived and less on party affiliation. And where did all those Southern Democrats (or Dixie-crats) run to after the passing of the Civil Rights act? They ran right into the arms of the Republican Party.

By: gdiafante on 8/22/12 at 11:34

The calm before the storm, nemo. The GOP is getting the usual VP pick/convention bump. Then the Dems will with their convention...then the debates...that'll be the good stuff.

But we're going to have to deal with Pete and Repeat for at least two and a half more months...

By: gdiafante on 8/22/12 at 11:36

What yogi fails to understand is that the parties of the 1850's-60's are not the same as they are today. Of course, that's just one example of something yogi fails to understand among a plethora of topics.

The right has relied heavily on the dumbing down of their constituents... so much so that it has infected their candidates (people like Akin being the proof). As they say, "the chickens are coming home to roost".

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 11:37

Hurricane Isaac and Hurricane Atkins at the same time, the GOP would like both to go away.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 8/22/12 at 11:44

g sez "calm before the storm." Here comes Hurricane Isaac just in time for the GOP convention! It'll be a stormy convention in more ways than one and Paul Ryan may not be the only bump happening! LOL

By: Blanketnazi2 on 8/22/12 at 11:45

Rasp, I have a question for you. TN has a high rate of poverty but is a red state. How could that be possible if all poor people vote for Democrats? Wouldn't that make TN a blue state?

By: yogiman on 8/22/12 at 11:47

dumbo,

What section of the gully have you came out of? You call me a racist by my calling "normal" people racists because of who they voted for.

You state the reason I like Obama is because of his color. If I liked Obama because of his color, would that make me a racist or liking a man because of who he is?

Then you show a case in point of my telling the people the only reason they voted for him was his race. Why would I call them racists if I voted for him because of his race?

How can I be a racist if I call others racist because of their voting for him because of his color?

If you can vote for someone as President of this nation whom you have no idea who he is, what other logical reason can you give for voting for such unknown? His race has nothing to do with the matter.

The thing that does matter is his refusal to show us who he is and what his goals are for this nation.

My question continues: Just who in the hell is he and what are his intentions are for our nation. If you don't care, you'll deserve what you get.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 11:48

Spot on brrrrk and those Southern Democrats are now Republicans.

By: BenDover on 8/22/12 at 11:50

But guys... in the immortal words of Lilly Von Shtupp, "It's twue... it's twue"....

And bfra/// Obama's advisers just said, "Ah... spend whatever the hell you want and we'll blame it on Bush. The only person who will call you on it is that BenDover and nobody listens to him".

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 11:50

The bump was only 1 point gdia. I get goose (bumps).

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 11:54

yogi fails to understand most things, including why it is important to change his diapers.

That isa good point brrrrk, dumper is yogi.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 11:59

Thanks for pointing out my yogi...yogi. It should have been your dislike for Obama is because of his color.

By: bfra on 8/22/12 at 12:01

Ben - Glad you got the point that no one is listening. That sould be reason enough to stop repeating the same thing over & over.

By: BenDover on 8/22/12 at 12:09

You guys are a little thick sometimes, bfra, so I like to remind you that Obama's driving the country over a cliff just so there'll be that little twinge of after-taste when you pull the lever for him this election.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 12:14

Sorry old boy you sure got your diaper all soiled and in a wad on your12:47post.

By: gdiafante on 8/22/12 at 12:14

We're a little thick? That's rich coming from you, Ben. You're as nutty as yogi.

By: gdiafante on 8/22/12 at 12:15

And by the way douchebag, both parties are driving the car. You're too thick to get that.

By: bfra on 8/22/12 at 12:17

Ben - Guess if you want to be a yogi, jr., that's your choice.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 12:20

I will have to differ with you on that gdia. Ben is no where's close to a yogi type of nutty. A distance third, but no where near yogi. lOL

By: BenDover on 8/22/12 at 12:24

Sorry if 'a little think' came off as offensive. I didn't mean to be insulting or a douche-bag.

By: BenDover on 8/22/12 at 12:33

shb 'a little thick'

By: yogiman on 8/22/12 at 12:47

They'll listen to you if you say what they want to hear, BenDover. If they don't have it locked in their thin skull already,they don't want to hear it.

By: yogiman on 8/22/12 at 12:51

Sorry, bfra.

That should be the reason to keep repeating hoping so some day you might get it through their thick skulls.

By: yogiman on 8/22/12 at 12:56

BenDover,

I think possibly some of them (a few at least) have learned of their mistake but just don't want to admit it.

Will they all vote the same way they voted in 2008? They have to have learned SOMETHING about Barry since 2008. If they haven't, God Bless the USA and save us if you can.

By: gdiafante on 8/22/12 at 12:59

What is offensive to me is all the partisan BS that spews forth...people that take on the position that one party (or man) is responsible for such a complex global situation. It defies logic.

And nemo, a conspiracy theory is a conspiracy theory is a conspiracy theory. I see no difference in one that alleges a manchurian candidate is President or the free market destroyed itself in order to elect a Communist (that is really a Socialist but sometimes a Marxist, but always a Muslim).

It's all nuts.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 1:05

I will pass on this.

By: IdiotSmackDown on 8/22/12 at 1:11

How is Kevin these days, yogi?

By: IdiotSmackDown on 8/22/12 at 1:13

Or should I say, Paul.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 1:14

You SmackDown YOU WILL BLOW HIS MIND....what am I talking about he doesn't have one.

By: IdiotSmackDown on 8/22/12 at 1:19

Perhaps he will pretend to not know Kevin, just like he didn't know Dolores the other day. Have you forgotten her so quickly, Paul?

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 1:23

Was Dolores one of the women that lead Paul on and then did not get bed with him?

By: Captain Nemo on 8/22/12 at 1:26

yogi says he only has half a mind so maybe Kevin and Dolores are lost in his missing half.

By: jvh2b on 8/22/12 at 2:27

If nothing else Ben - much applause for the Blazing Saddles referance.

And don't worry...I'm fairly positivie Lilly also like's em 'a lil thick' (insert rimshot here)

By: BenDover on 8/22/12 at 2:32

"... 'scuse me while I whips this out... "

By: yogiman on 8/22/12 at 3:05

When you're talking to me personally, Idiot, I prefer you call me Paul. But if you're talking to me on this BS site I'll know my name better as yogi.

Kevin's doing fine. He's working for retirement. Just don't screw around with him, he's not a BSer like you.

What about you, Idiot, do you hope to have a job some day so you can build a retirement program? Good luck. Barry might help you if you vote for him.

I hope you don't mind my shortening your BS name, IdiotSmackDown. I like your first name better. It describes you better.

By: IdiotSmackDown on 8/22/12 at 3:11

LOL, Paul. What ever makes you happy.
