Necesito trabajar ahorita. Lo siento, mis damas feas.

Come on boy, can't that flea brain work any faster to find some other lines than what you have already posted?

Nimrod: I'd commit suicide if I were married to your liberal ass, too! Got guilty, f*&^ckbreath?

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 2:31

It must be hard for this flea to think with his mouth and ass filled with dog dick.

By: Jughead on 8/8/13 at 2:33

Nimrod: I am NOT screwing your sister, too! Please quit calling those lovely whores bad names.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 2:33

I would kill your little ass first stupid yogi germ.

By: Jughead on 8/8/13 at 2:34

I own you, Nimrod. Your are welcome. No charge.

CYU manana!

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 2:35

This little twit has less than the brain of a yogi. He can't remember nothing. I don't have a sister, stupid.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 2:37

Sure you do flea. Your just like yogi, except not as smart.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 2:38

How is it to be as dumb as a yogi, flea?

By: budlight on 8/8/13 at 2:41

Why do you people patronize the Jughead? You know that his language is inappropriate, so why respond to him?

Hey Yogi, hope all is well. And ya'll all - Gov, D7, etc. This rain is good for the plants, but heck on houses and lawnmowers.

Did anyone see the bus take down with 3 guys beating up on one guy? Interesting.

I welcome you to piss on my grave, gdiafane. It will be at the bottom of the ocean. Come on down and piss a barrel full. I don't want my grave to get too shallow.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 3:07

Late in life bfra, but I'm way ahead of you on facts.

Good afternoon, Nashville.

"What must the Tennessee Democratic Party do to right its ship after years of losses?"

It will take a great deal more than "righting the ship". The wreck lies at the bottom of the sea....it's been down there since 1968. Raising the Democratic Party of Tennessee from its watery grave would be a monumental task with little chance of success.

When Richard Nixon flipped the core values of the Party of Abe Lincoln to those of the Party of Jeff Davis, the Republican Party sold its soul to the Devil. The Southern white segregationists flocked to the re-branded GOP.... and they pulled their kids out of the public schools and opted for faith-based education...the mean-spirited kind. The rest is history.

If the Democratic Party wants to become competitive in the South, it must start with good, honest and competent candidates; that's a sine qua non....that and an army of zealous campaign workers.....good luck with all that.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 3:25

gdiafante, you post you have given all kinds of evidence I'm a liar on Barry's qualifications.

Please explain to me (once again) how an Indonesian citizen can become a natural born American citizen. Also please explain to me why Barry advertised he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii for 16 years.

Also, please explain to me why his SSN won't pass the E test.

That is, if you can.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 3:35

You're exposing your ignorance too much, dumba$$.

Canadian and Mexican citizens have the same rights to call themselves Americans as does the United States citizens. All three nations are on the North American continent, That is, unless Canada and Mexico have been terminated from it.

When did the bomb go off? It looks like we would have heard it being between them.

By: bfra on 8/8/13 at 3:35

blob - All of that has been explained so many times, with evidence & you don't have brains enough to comprehend it. Why would anybody want to keep repeating facts to a dumb blob like you?

By: Loner on 8/8/13 at 3:38

I wonder if Yogi, or anyone else would raise such an eligibility ruckus, if the US President were a natural born US citizen - born in the USA - but holding dual US-Israeli citizenship.
Who would dare to question the eligibility of such an individual? Only an "anti-Semite", of course....the mainstream media would excoriate anyone who complained.

But, since we are talking about a black family in the White House, all manner of whacky conspiracy theories, about the eligibility of the current POTUS, continue to openly flourish in this country, with relatively little blow-back from the mainstream media.

The Birthers and Baggers wallow in their bias & bigotry, like hogs in their own excrement....they are filthy critters....not even good for bacon.

By: bfra on 8/8/13 at 3:39

Hey blob - That bomb went off last year & without brains, guess you can't hear either. You haven't wondered why you only have a small little space to stand on & have to sleep standing up, or why those little space creatures are buzzing around your head singing dork, dork, dork. Are they dressed in purple or pea green?

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 3:47

No bfra, it hasn't been explained to me so many times. It hasn't even been explained to me once. How about you giving it a shot.

I'm still curious as to how a student who went to college as a foreign aid student can be an American student: Especially a natural born one.

Please explain.

By: bfra on 8/8/13 at 3:52

blob - no more time to day for your stupidity!

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 3:56

Why, because you don't have enough intelligence to prove it?

By: Loner on 8/8/13 at 3:57

Bfra, it's been good getting to know you on these NCP boards...I'll miss your commentary...and your words of encouragement....keep the faith!

By: Loner on 8/8/13 at 3:58

And Dargent7, same goes for you too....have a happy!

By: Loner on 8/8/13 at 4:00

And Yogi, you poor bastard....I hope that the authorities are monitoring you; your hatred for President Obama is well-documented here....your love of guns is too....you are a sick man, Yogi....I pity you....you need professional help.

By: bfra on 8/8/13 at 4:01

Loner - Same here! I have told you many time how much I enjoy your comments & your artistic way with words. Maybe we will cross paths on another board someday.

Gotta run now, going to the Titan game & don't want to be late for all the good food before hand.

By: budlight on 8/8/13 at 4:04

Loner, you said "But, since we are talking about a black family in the White House,"

Why do you insist on making Obama's presidency a racial issue? Can you just for a moment listen to these words: It is not about his race, religion or citizenship for many people. It is about his POLICIES, lack of leadership and his style of governance.

Haven't you ever had someone you worked for who was of a different race or religion and you didn't like their style of supervising or their lack thereof? Can you not relate to that at all? I find it hard to believe that you have always liked everyone you worked for in life.

By: Loner on 8/8/13 at 4:10

This site and its posting community went from state-of-the-art, to state-of-the-fart....all that online verbiage....now about to become electronic flatulence....just passing gas....no more, but no less.

The hateful comments directed at our fellow posters during these final days have stunk up the place....time to open the windows and let it all go.... into the electronic ether, dispersed into utter oblivion.

By: Loner on 8/8/13 at 4:12

Enjoy the game, Bfra....and celebrate life everyday...Good Luck......Love & Kisses....JK.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 4:15

bud why do you and Comrade yogi make it racial issue about Obama?

By: Loner on 8/8/13 at 4:20

Bud, you asked: "Why do you insist on making Obama's presidency a racial issue?"

I don't.

Yogi, Jugs and millions of others have made BHO's eligibility an issue, and that BS is race-based, hateful and un-American, in my view. Jugs, for example, called BHO, an "ape"....and Jugs is a Birther from way back....most Birthers are white racists.

Those who cling to the Birther BS are making his eligibility an issue...that's not the same thing as making his presidency an issue.

I too am unhappy with many of BHO's actions and lack of action.....but his eligibility to be POTUS is unquestionable.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 4:22

I find it amazing how both bud and yogi think that they are not racist pigs. They try to be so P C about it, but fail so badly.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 4:23

Hay Loner what cooking?

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 4:27

I'm sorry loner, but you are the poor bastard. You, as so many others on this board, can't see beyond your nose on the issue.

Could it be because you don't know as much as I do about the issue? Possibly. If it is, I'm sorry I don't know more about using a computer than I do.

Unless you are fellow communists with Barry, I'm afraid you're going to find learn your ignorance the hard way.

I've had a number of you posting you have proven me wrong but I'll be damned if I can recall anything you've posted to do so.

gdiafante just posted he had explained to me before how Obama could become a natural born American citizen even though Obama advertised he was born in Kenya for 16 years with a British subject his father. Wasn't he, then, born as a British subject, also?

Can you please explain to me how an Indonesian citizen can become a natural born American citizen if it was true they were born in Kenya as he advertised?

Can you also explain why Obama refused to prove his eligibility when he entered the race?

But better yet, can you explain why congress allowed him to enter that race without proving he was eligible for that office?

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 4:35

dumba$$, name one time I have mentioned Obama's race. You can't because I haven't. I have posted I wouldn't give a damn what race he is if he was in that office legally. But he isn't. And that dumba$$ has been my whole issue on this board.

The only ones on this board who have mentioned race are you Obama fans.

And I hate to tell you dumba$$, but your man is not the first black President of this nation. He has the title of being the first black usurper of this nation.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 4:43

No loner,

BHO's race has nothing to do with millions of people being so objective of a usurper in office. You all have posted you have explained his eligibility to me before. I know I have a bad memory on many things, but I'll be damned if I can remember even one time one of you have given me anything proving Barry's constitutional eligibility. Or aren't you familiar with the Constitutional requirement and why our founders put those reasons in that "little booklet"?

And sadly loner, you all still don't even know his legal name.

Loner I find it amazing that a man of your education and knowledge would even read the Jugs' posts. They are x-rated and I skip over them.

Do you think all racists are white, Loner? I can assure you that there are some people of color and other origins who are as racist as the flag waving kind. People on this site through that term around very haphazardly and they are wrong in so many cases.

Just wondering, do you not think some of Obama's recent statements and actions are showing his true colors? (for instance 20 years in a church where the minister was very clearly a racist - by his own words and actions) One does not attend a Jeremiah Wright church and not deduct that Wright hates whites. And clearly he does.

I recently saw a political talk show where someone posed the question of Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for president given that he was born in Canada..... "I don't see what the issue is" said the conservative pundit, "after all, his mother was an American citizen".

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 4:53

loner,

If Obama's eligibility is unquestionable, why did he refuse to show his birth certificate when he entered the race? Why did he refuse to show it when John McCain showed his when Obama questioned McCains eligibility to run in that race?

A better question on that issue: Why did the Senate not insist Obama prove his identity himself by showing his birth certificate as did McCain? Why did they consider him an exception?

Why did the Senate approve McCain's eligibility because both of his parents were American citizens yet they didn't insist both of Obama's parents also be American citizens?

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 5:01

That question has been raised, brrrk. And no, Cruz is no more eligible that Barry for that office. His father is a Canadian and according to our founders both parents must be American citizens.

That also leaves Rubio and Jandel? out of the race. They were both born several years before their parents became American citizens. But if you've noticed, their names keep coming up in the GOP issues.

Now they're bring Bush #3 into the picture. Two was enough.

By: brrrrk on 8/8/13 at 5:02

With McCain there was a legitimate jurisdictional issue to be resolved.

Obama was born to an American citizen in a state that had become a state in '59, two years prior to Obama's year of birth.

Done.

By: dargent7 on 8/8/13 at 5:35

I'll admit, "yogi" is a piece of work, but "jughead is a pile of shit.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 5:55

You got that right d7.

Comrade yogi you are too PC about it, but your code for calling a n**ger is obvious to the rest of the world.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 6:03

Sorry brrrrk, but it takes two to tango. Barry was born to a Kenyan father and a teenage American girl. He was, at best, a dual-citizen.

I suggest you read the requirements given by the First Congress Session II, Ch 3 (1790) Pg. 104 and Third Congress Session II, Ch. 21 (1795) Pg. 415 to be eligible to be President of the USA.

Please note they said PARENTS, not parent.

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 6:12

One more note: As I have mentioned before brrrrk, why has Obama been so secretive of his identity? Why is he ashamed of his college records if he was such a good student he was given a job to teach the Constitution in college? Does he know it so well he feels justified to ignore it?

Could it possibly be he's hiding his college records because he was a foreign student?

And when he went to Pakistan to visit some friends; where did he get the money? What passport did he use because Pakistan would not accept an American passport?
Can an American citizen get a passport from another nation?

Many questions brrrrk, and you had better find the answers before he takes over as dictator with the congress now is office.

By: Libertine on 8/8/13 at 6:17

The biggest problem for politicians wanting to run on the Democrat ticket in Tennessee is the Democrat Party nationally.

In order to run as a Democrat politicians have to support Obama's failed economic policies that have tamped down any hopes of recovery or economic prosperity which have hit blacks and women particularly hard.

Democrats must support Obama's spying on US Citizens with no cause or warrant that have eliminated our first and fourth amendment rights.

Democrats must support Obamacare which has doubled the cost of health insurance premiums for the working poor.

Democrats must support a President who lies about every blunder in his administration such as fast and furious, Benghazi, Solyndra and countless other issues.

Those who would govern as Democrats should just run as independents so they can distance themselves from Obama.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/8/13 at 6:26

Was Obama mother ever in Kenya?

By: yogiman on 8/8/13 at 6:49

According to an interview I heard with Barry's paternal grandmother, yes. His grandmother said she was in the room with his mother when Barry was born.

And by the way, that interview was given to an American preacher interpreted by the Kenyan Ambassador who spoke very understandable English.

Hell, I bet he could even write in English better than you.

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

That was one of your edited interviews you dumbass stupid old fool.
