Apparently somebody didn't get the grade they thought they should have gotten from the nasty ol' professor....

Ben...when George Bush Senior saw the photos of those burned alive retreating Iraqi draftees...miles and miles of human carnage, he had had enough....he lost the stomach for war...his idiot son, tried to pick up where his daddy left off....the rest is history.

Here are some of the more graphic, less publicized images:

Last i knew, the royal family that ruled Kuwait under Bush I is still in power...thanks to the Bush family and the US Air Force, the US Army, the US Navy and the US Marines....and oh yeah, thanks to the US taxpayers and our Chinese creditors.

Loner - Yeah! I'll take that. I loved Peggy Lee's songs.

"Let up on the trottle..." If you remember, the whole invasion into Iraq was because, as G HW Bush characterized it, "It's NOT about OIL, it's about naked aggression.." (direct quote). Seems Bushie was all panti-wadded up because Saddam invaded Kuwait. Who gives a sh!t? Saddam gassed 150 people....so, what?
So, the USA sends 5 carriers over to Iraq to spank Hussein....killing 150,000 in the process. The Highway of Death" showed America how callous we are, under a President's orders of "peace". Just like Vietnam.
Bushie "pulled out because CNN was showing this sh!t live on tv, moment by moment.
Bush I & Bush II (inflamed because they had a mosaque of Bush I in the foire of the Palace so all entering could step on his face), totally ruined America for generations.
Obama has been running on neutral.

Peggy Lee remains iconic.

I loved Brenda Lee too.

But not General Lee so much.

By: Loner on 6/6/13 at 10:15

And I loved the gay member of the Lee clan: Pinky Lee.

darg,

It all goes back to a comment I once heard (but still can't remember the source)... "If America was as good as it's word, we would have no enemies in this world"

9:36 bud post on tax payers dime.

19:06 bud wonders why Ben does not think she is a lady. With her attitude it is a wonder she is considered to be human.

By: Loner on 6/6/13 at 10:44

Captain Nemo enters the forum @ 11:20....takes a swipe @ Bud...Good morning, Captain.

By: pswindle on 6/6/13 at 10:46

I support President Obama on his choices. The are smart individuals that love this country, and they will put country first as President Obama does. They could never be as bad as Bush's team. The white males of the GOP can't take a black man or females in top spots. Get over and work with this President, the country needs and they want our country to be successful.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 10:48

Good morning, Loner. It is not so much a swipe at bud, as it is pointing out the facts.

By: Loner on 6/6/13 at 10:53

If internet trolls were whales, Captain Nemo would be an online whaler....he roams the high seas of the NCP comment boards, looking for that accursed white whale....harpoon on the ready....he spots Budlight breaching the surface, blowing spent air and sea water out her blow hole...."THAR SHE BLOWS!!!"....the hunt is on.

By: Loner on 6/6/13 at 10:56

Captain ,"pointing out the facts"...is that seaman lingo for using the harpoon...AAAARRR!!! Watch out for pirates...they steal whale oil.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 11:01

LOL Loner. I love your play of words. Now whales are safe from me, but the slimy trolls had better take care, because I will strict at first opportunity.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 11:06

Its been a long two days, with little sleep. So I'm going to take a nap.

By: dargent7 on 6/6/13 at 11:11

"It's been a long two days, with two little sheep..."
You betcha'.

By: Loner on 6/6/13 at 12:18

Doorbell just rang....it's the UPS man, delivering my "slave cylinders" from the fine state of Alabama...the South done gonna make my Jeep rise again...Yeee Haaawww!!!

I gotta run these slaves over to their master, who is patiently waiting at the plantation for these replacement slaves...young and fresh, they look like they can be worked for years without complaining.... or creating a ruckus on that rolling plantation...we want Kum-By-Yah on my plantation....my slaves are treated like kings....front row service.

See ya!

By: BenDover on 6/6/13 at 12:23

Make sure he mounts them properly and that they are bled after they are mounted loner.

By: Loner on 6/6/13 at 12:31

Absolutely, Ben...bleed those slaves...bleed the whole system...we want "good pedal"....whip it into submission.

BTW the Alabama Jeep Parts place has excellent online service manual stuff...I downloaded the whole 17 page brake system portion...my current mechanics should have no trouble doing the job...they just replaced the AC compressor, pressure switch, serpentine belt tensioner and a faulty motor mount on my 2006 Honda Civic....they can handle this..(.I hope,) My old mechanic, Jake, went out of business...prices too low and health care coverage was too high...so he now works on an assembly line...what a waste of an excellent auto mechanic's skills....that's capitalism....American style.

Later!

By: yogiman on 6/6/13 at 2:04

Loner,

It's odd that you're so good of a "mechanic" on your computer but you can't change the brake cells on your old Jeep. Is that mechanic that much smarter than you mechanically?

Heck, I used to do all of my car work even to the point of overhauling an engine.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/6/13 at 2:15

By that logic, why is it that you can work on a car but you can't manage to be "good at the computer?"

Idiot.

By: yogiman on 6/6/13 at 2:43

I worked on my car years before they took half my brain out, B2. Much memory went with it.

I can only turn my computer on and "use it" as best as I can. But one point: I notice many of you can use the 'writing' program. I can only use it as best as I can. So be it.

But by the way: What do you think about the 'guvmunt' putting your phone calls under [look at it] lock and key?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/6/13 at 2:45

You and your silly excuses, yogi. One minute you think you're brilliant then when you are an obvious moron you blame it on having half a brain. What a cop out.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/6/13 at 2:49

"writing" program? wth are you talking about?

By: yogiman on 6/6/13 at 2:58

In your mind, B2, so be it. You obviously think you know what you're thinking about and don't have to know the facts.

Not being facetious, I hope you and your fellow posters backers on this site never go through it with your brain what I've gone through with mine. It ain't fun.

The "writing" program is what I'm using now to compute on this computer.

By the way, you still haven't commented about Barry's phone program.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/6/13 at 3:01

Yeah, I'm not happy with Obama on that one but I'd still rather him be in office than any of the crazy idiots on the right.

There is no "writing" program. You are clueless, not that you being clueless is any new revelation.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/6/13 at 3:03

You can't comprehend a posting board or how to search on a computer yet you think you know more than constitutional scholars. And you fall for every dupe out there. You are an old fool.

By: bfra on 6/6/13 at 3:04

Blanket - yogi & bud are jack's of all trades, masters of none, thus the reason they can't hold a job. Yogi is so old that adage was probably written about him!

By: yogiman on 6/6/13 at 3:07

A bucket full of vocabulary is one of the things they took when they "emptied" my skull, B2. I can't remember many words anymore.

The brain is one helluva unit in you body. It's hard to understand how it's working like it is. I feel lucky it's working as well as it is for me. So be it. I could have wound up not being one of idiots "arguing" with you.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/6/13 at 3:09

bfra, it's funny how yogi brags about all the "jobs" he's had over the years yet he has a Linked In page with not a single job on it! Why bother being on Linked In? LOL

By: yogiman on 6/6/13 at 3:12

Huh? What are you "talking about" on [Linked in] page?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/6/13 at 3:16

http://www.linkedin.com/pub/paul-wade/66/69a/b21

You don't remember creating a LinkedIn page?

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 3:23

Shupid (sic) yogi.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 3:24

yogi has half a brain and that half is nothing but crap.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/6/13 at 3:24

Geez....pages don't create themselves.

How are you, Nemo? :)

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 3:26

When they removed the good half, they removed good sense and understanding. Now all yogi has is crap.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 3:27

I've had my nap.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/6/13 at 3:27

Wait, there was a good half? LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 3:28

I'm good Blanket and you?

By: yogiman on 6/6/13 at 3:35

Nope, I don't remember creating such a page, B2. This is the first time I've seen it.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 3:35

The bucket yogi is talking about was full of holes to start with.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 3:40

Now yogi how do you know that you did not create this page. Maybe you can see why the rest of the world thinks you are nuts.

By: bfra on 6/6/13 at 3:42

Nemo - Theiy don't have to think yogi is nuts, he proves it over & over, everyday, 24/7.

By: yogiman on 6/6/13 at 3:45

Ya know, B2, considering his age, dumba$$ might even know more about computer use than I, but he sure as hell doesn't know how to use the alphabet of the English language to write a simple sentence. He apparently flunked his spelling tests.

By: yogiman on 6/6/13 at 3:49

I'm only trying to catch up with you on, bfra. Looks like it's going to be impossible.

By: bfra on 6/6/13 at 4:07

yogi you are to stupid to catch up with anybody on this board & I dare say that could possibly even include bud.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 4:16

As usual yogi's come backs are....stupi (sic)

By: Captain Nemo on 6/6/13 at 4:18

In a world of (sic) intelleegent (sic) yogi is missing.
