In the coming decades I predict (and numbers are already beginning to show this) that there will be a mass migration of middle class baby boomers from low service red states to high service blue states.... at least by those middle class baby boomers that still have the financial ability to make the move. Those who don't have the resources will be stuck here. This will leave red states like Tennessee with even more tightly concentrated high income areas with concentrated political power like brentwood (Williamson county being the 17th richest county in the nation) separated by vast areas of high poverty and poor civil services..... otherwise know as the GOP dream.

Yogi, once again your ignorance regarding American history is on display. We were called "Americans" by the British prior to the revolution (it was a negative connotation) and John Adams made a very persuasive argument during the second Continental Congress that we are Americans and should be addressed as such.

And, we have ever since.

By: gdiafante on 8/8/13 at 9:58

Brrrrk, I'm really hoping that a hybrid party emerges...moderates from both the current parties who are completely disgusted with what has transpired over the last decade finally form a viable third party.

I think there's more people out there that want the best that both parties can represent without all the extremism.

Then again, maybe not.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 10:23

No they are not Comrade yogi. They are on the North American continent. They are call Mexicans or Canadians.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 10:28

The hybrid party is the centrist of both parties. I can see a start taking place in Tennessee.

If Haslam and Lamar are re-elected, I have no hope for TN.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 10:34

It could be worse, pswindle. We could have Ramsey and yogi.

"Only one more day and you retarded liberals are silenced on the NCP. Thank you JESUS!!!!

Jesus hates liberals because they hate him. Eye for an eye, doncha know."

And your hate speech will be relegated to the sands of time.... because there's no other site (outside of possibly a white supremacist site) that will allow you to say what you said here. The irony is.... it's you're voice that will be silenced. And if it took the NCP going down to make it happen... I'm all for it.

I will miss u2 d7 :-P

By: brrrrk on 8/8/13 at 11:10

Let me rephrase my last comment, I'm not happy to see TCP going down.... but on the other hand, every cloud has a silver lining.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 11:27

To expose my ignorance ( to your way of thinking) a little bit further, gdiafante, I agree: Yes, we are Americans just like the citizens of all other nations on all American continents.

The citizens of the USA are no exceptions to that honor.

Our founders being called Americans by the British Empire was a slap in the face; but they fooled that old boy the King and showed pride of it.

If our founders were ashamed of being called that, why do we still have pride in being one?

Wonder where the brainless blob is going to put his inane blabber after Fri.?

By: bfra on 8/8/13 at 11:31

OOPS! I should have said "crazy", inane might be over the blob's head.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 11:32

Well dumba$$,

The United States are on the North American Continent also, just like Canada and Mexico. So why are we entitled to be called Americans but the citizens of Canada and Mexico aren't?

By: bfra on 8/8/13 at 11:34

Nemo - You went over his head, also. Don't worry blob, it's getting kinda late in life for you to catch up now.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 11:41

Sorry bfra, but you have to be, at least, reasonably intelligent so that leaves you out.

There's more wood for the fire, just go get another stick. Or in your case, you might like the use (of the heat,of course) of a corn cob.

By: gdiafante on 8/8/13 at 11:45

Jeez yogi, surely you're not really that stupid. I've already explained that this country took on the term "American" as a badge of honor around 1776. Get it?

And, it is "the United States is..." It's not plural and no one has referred to it that way since before the Civil War.

By: bfra on 8/8/13 at 11:52

Blob has never heard of an African either. Guess he thinks everybody is as stupid as he is. Blob where do you think Afro-American came from?

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 12:08

Jeez gdiafante,

You seem to be as stupid as I. I didn't question the citizens of the US calling themselves Americans. I simply questioned what makes them an exception over Canadian Americans and Mexican Americans that they aren't entitled to calling themselves Americans if their little hearts desires.

By: govskeptic on 8/8/13 at 12:09

bfra: It sure going to be lonely at your house without Yogi to carry you for
conversation and keeping your vocabulary skills up to date. I suspect
The Hyperlink would provide lots of chit chat on many issues. Not that
you ask.

By: gdiafante on 8/8/13 at 12:11

Thankfully, after tomorrow the only time I'll deal with Paul Wade again is when I piss on his grave.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 12:13

Well bfra,

Yes, I've heard of an African. They call them citizens of a continent known as Africa.

But I'll have to admit, I've never heard of African as a race.

By: gdiafante on 8/8/13 at 12:14

I wonder how gov will pass the time since he won't be able to lamely interject his usual whine about everyone else?

See what I did there, numbnutz?

By: bfra on 8/8/13 at 12:15

gov - Your guess is as far wrong as most of your comments. I have plenty to keep me busy & thanks for worrying about me, but I am very happy with my life. Unlike you & a few other, when I make a comment it is based on facts without little inuendos added. You should try it sometime. True wins out!

By: gdiafante on 8/8/13 at 12:18

But I'll have to admit, I've never heard of African as a race.

Well that's a lie as you've discussed it on this site many times. Do you ever tell the truth?


By: bfra on 8/8/13 at 12:18

yogi - With your little bitty narrow mind (oops no brains), make that space I'm not surprised.

By: bfra on 8/8/13 at 12:20

gov - Did you ever find those 2 martinis that you wrote about, just off of the wall?

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 12:44

Let me rephrase that remark, gdiafante.

I have read of African as a race on the fake birth certificate Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama finally issued in 2011. That is the only time in my short life I have ever heard of African as the race of a black person.

So how is Barry entitled to such a exception? Is he that much different of the black people of the Negro race?

By: gdiafante on 8/8/13 at 12:48

Again, that's a lie. How do I know? Because I, personally, cited many instances of people using African as a race in bygone eras.

Then again, I've also posted evidence that disproves every one of your assertions about Obama, but that hasn't stopped you from lying either.

Methinks you're a pathological liar.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 12:48

I'm glad to see you claim to be an absolute truthful fact provider, bfra. So how about posting a fact to qualify your accusation of at least one little lie you have accused me of.

Thanks. I hope I don't have to wait too long.

By: Jughead on 8/8/13 at 12:54

Lunch break, damas!

How are you liberal ladies doing in my absence? Building a virtual shrine to go along with your virtual libtard community?


By: Jughead on 8/8/13 at 12:56

PCtards....they are not "africans." They are "apes."

Go watch them swipe their EBT's at the discount tobacco shop near you!!!

By: gdiafante on 8/8/13 at 12:56

oh the irony...lol

By: Jughead on 8/8/13 at 12:58

dorrkkk: Ah, thanks for the compliment. Yes, it is appropriate that NCP shutter upon my last glorious words.

Please, no more praise. It makes me blush.

By: gdiafante on 8/8/13 at 1:01

I'm still waiting for jug to reveal which church he belongs to. C'mon man, own it.

Or are you a chickenshit?

By: Jughead on 8/8/13 at 1:01

Dammit! I must leave again and WORK. You liberal fatazzez sure eat a lot of fries using your welfare cards!

Then, on to my second job of emptying portapotties. Anyone of you libtards care to post your home address?

By: Jughead on 8/8/13 at 1:03

goddamninfant: You want to come praise with me? Sweet. Post your full name, home address, and cell phone number and I will pick you up for church on Sunday.

What are you, a chickenshit?

By: gdiafante on 8/8/13 at 1:04

That's what I thought.

Ok, you can return to your "job" now. lol

By: brrrrk on 8/8/13 at 1:14


I'm counting the minutes unit your dead on this forum....

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 1:17

Your 12:32 post expose your ignorance Comrade yogi. We are the United States of America. If Canada or Mexico had wish to call themselves United States of America, then they would have the right to call themselves Americans....you dumb ass stupid old mother ****er.

By: BigPapa on 8/8/13 at 1:17

I'd guess the Democratic game plan would most closely resemble the game plan of the pinata vs the stick.

By: Jughead on 8/8/13 at 1:19

goddaminfant: Iglesia de Christo, Madison.

Your turn, f*&^got.

That's what I thought. You f*&6cking spineless, girly, piece of basura.

Yeah--look it up, f*&^ckwad.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 1:20

That stupid little flea is posting with his mouth full of dog dick.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 1:22

Well you brainless blob, say something

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 1:24

The flea had to go to his translator and the hand book for right wing dumb ass to make his next post.

"goddaminfant: Iglesia de Christo, Madison."

Google is a wonderful tool..... and according to it, this church doesn't exist.... at least as for as "Madison" is concerned. Not surprised really....
