I put my hide on the line, Gov, 67-69.....Israel was murdering our sailors on the high seas, back in 1967....and LBJ let them get away with it.....the Mossad had LBJ by his Texas scrotum......ever wonder why?

Check out the USS Liberty incident....your buddies in the Jewish State, deliberately murdered 34 of our US sailors in a prolonged air and sea attack on June 8, 1967....dozens more were maimed....174 injured in all...the Jews used napalm etc. The ship would not go down with all aboard, as the Zionist Jews had planned.....with perfidious "allies" like those folks, who needs enemies?

BTW, JFK said, "NO" to Israeli nukes....LBJ gave them the green light.....the rest is history.

If the EC were eliminated, every state would be in play, because every state has voters whose votes would actually count in the final tally....as it is now, the major parties fight over the votes of states, not people.....fifty states, not several million American voters, decide on who will be POTUS....if they can't decide, then the USSC steps in to make the decision....nine robed lawyers then make the call for us....it's democracy lite....the system is so flawed that when he destroyed the governments of Iraq and Afghanistan, we did not shove our goofy system down their throats as a replacement.....we gave them a British-style parliamentary alternative to our democracy-lite system.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 10:59

I hope that I made it clear, the attack on the Liberty was finally at point blank range...with Israel naval vessels pounding the Liberty after IAF jets had set it ablaze...it was never a case of mistaken identity.....LBJ oversaw the shortest naval inquest of its type in US history.....Israel's claims were believed, our sailors were sold out by the Commander-In-Chief.

I believe that LBJ was complicit in the murder of JFK and I believe that Oswald was "just a patsy", as he claimed.....Jack Ruby quickly silenced the trigger man, before he could be interrogated....Ruby was a Zionist Jew....the whole business went down in LBJ's Texas.....the Warren Commission was designed white wash the whole affair....IMO, the Israelis got away with murder.....with JFK and with the crew of the Liberty.

Israel supplied the phony "yellow cake" BS in the run-up to the Iraq War.....now they are trying to drag us into war with Iran....and Bishop Romney has declared his intention to not allow ANY uranium enrichment in Iran....that is a rallying cry for more holy war at Israel's behest.

The Jewish State concept is not working out as advertised....it is a dismal failure.

I know it's just another dumb question for you Obama fans, but what do y'all think about the DNC having a 2 hour Islamic prayer before the "game" starts?

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 11:18

Two hours of "Islamic prayer"? Yogi, I'm beginning to think that you would believe any outrageous claim that targets our President....by all means, please supply a credible link to back that claim up...I just can't imagine that two hours of any kind of praying would be a scheduled part of the DNC's agenda....please cite your source.

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 11:20

I hate to point it our Ummm, but I'm afraid November 6 is going to show you and your site buddies as the fools.

Only 63 days and we'll see who is the the fool is, or the fools are.

Just wondering brrrrk, did you live through the days of segregation? Unless you did, what do you know about it?

By: gdiafante on 9/4/12 at 11:32

Did you live through the days of the Civil War? Unless you did, what would you know about it, yogi?

I can't believe his stupidity, day in, day out...

Well, to put it in your own venacular...

I's reeded up on in one of them thar book thangs

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 11:34

The GOP is playing the Israel card as we speak....they claim that Obama is abandoning Israel.....read all about it here:



"George W. Bush’s White House press secretary Ari Fleischer made it clear he could not understand the Democrats’ decision to abandon the commitment to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. “Given O’s troubles w Israel and Jewish vote, why on earth did Ds drop Jerusalem as capital from their platform?” he tweeted.

The Republican Jewish Coalition went further, calling the platform “the most radically unsupportive statement of policy on Israel by a major U.S, party since (it’s) founding,” in a tweet." (end snippet)

Like I said, if Obama loses the Jewish vote, NY could slide into Romney's column....that would be a tremendous surprise for all the pundits, pollsters and "experts" out there.....former NYC mayor, Ed Koch defected to the Republicans in 2010 and he urged all NY Jews to switch....if Bloomberg pulls a Koch, the apple cart in the big apple could be upset....the party of hate might get another influx of haters, just like in the sixties.....like a massive black hole of hate, the GOP is gaining mass and no light is coming out of the hole.....now, they are sucking in the Jews and their enablers.

It's a wonder he ain't deaf from all the constant DUH ringing in his ears.....

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 11:39

I wish you was intelligent enough to to know what you was reading, brrrrk. Sorry you aren't.

No gdiafante, I didn't live through the Civil War, but I did live through many of the years of segregation. How many did you live through?

I was in the Korean Conflict (as they called the Korean War) What war was you in? Did you have fun in it?

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 11:41

Thanks, Gdiafante, for shining a little light on the "2-hr Muslim prayer" canard....Glen Beck started the hateful rumor....he's a merchant of hate, cloaked in the robes of Judeo-Christian fervor....we should strap Beck to the first bunker buster that we drop on Fordo, Iran.....let him ride it down, Slim Pickens style.....but wearing a yarmulke instead of a cowboy hat......YEEE....HAAAWW!!!

Ben Dover....are you out there?

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 11:47

Sorry Loner,

That S/H/B teaparty.org/

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 11:49

We need the full URL, or internet address, Yogi...your link is not working....try to copy/paste the URL again.

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 11:50

yogi - What about the 2 hr. prayer lie you posted. Cat got your tongue, fingers broke, can't type or just sitting there saying duh, duh, duh. Now why don't they believe my LIES?

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 11:54

Yogi is so filled with hate for our president, that he has become exceedingly vulnerable to charlatans who are peddling totally phony anti-Obama BS.....he'll believe any negative allegation about BHO, no matter how unreasonable....Yogi's hate has sucked the reason out of him?

By: Ummm... on 9/4/12 at 11:56

Loner, you are assuming Yogi had the ability to reason to begin with. Never assume...

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 11:56

Did you get a suntan out on the water, Bfra? Do you ski towed behind a boat or jet-ski?

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 11:58

Loner - I agree with that 84 yr. old friend of mine that I let read some of yogi's comments. yogi is just a crazy old senile coot.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 11:58

Yeah, I did assume a lot there, Ummm.....but I'll give the old soldier the benefit of the doubt.....trying to be charitable here.

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 12:01

Loner - Behind a boat most of the time. Behind a jet ski is ok, but not fast enough. Didn't get a lot of sun, has been overcast a lot & rain off & on. We have races at Center Hill & speed ski.

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 12:01

Well Loner,

It looks like what I read, and what gdiafante read, is different. We'll know which one was accurate in just a few hours, won't we?

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 12:04

Loner - As it has been proved that yogi is a constant liar, I would have to see papers before I would call him an "old soldier", or anything else he has claimed about himself.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 12:05

Govseptic and others have accused the lone one of hating Jews and the Jewish State....this "hate", they argue, has robbed me of reason on the issue.

Let me respond by saying that if I hated the Jews, I would support the idea of concentrating them all in a tiny Jewish State in the middle of Muslim country.....concentration enables annihilation; the Nazis fully understood the concept...Th. Herzl, the Father of Zionism, did not fully understand the idea....his zeal sucked the reason out of him.

Dispersal insures survival....Herzl did not realize that fact...Zionism is counter-productive; it is endangering not preserving the Jewish people.

Both hate and zeal can strip a human being of their sensibilities and reason....I try to avoid both hate and zeal.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 12:08

So, you are something of a jock on the water, Bfra? Give 'em hell!

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 12:12

If Yogi lies about his military service, he'll have to live with that....he may be telling the truth on his military service....I'll give him the benefit, once again.

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 12:12

Loner - No not a jock, definitely! I have a son that is, he skis barefoot & a daughter that is a better skier than myself. I envy your snow ski skills, I am not too good at that, might have to do with, I don't like the cold weather.

By: gdiafante on 9/4/12 at 12:15

It looks like what I read, and what gdiafante read, is different. We'll know which one was accurate in just a few hours, won't we?

It's called reading comprehension. I read Factcheck.org and other sites and see that the prayer event is hosted by the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs, not the DNC.

Neither is the DNC "featuring" the prayers, which are taking place at a separate location in Charlotte (a city park)

Yogi, on the other hand, receives a chain email, because it's anti-Obama he instantly believes it and passes it on as fact. When presented with the true facts, he issues his now famous statement: we'll find out.

The man is a true moron.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 12:31

President Obama is a reneger!

He reached out to and used the Cannabis users in 2008, now he mocks them in 2012. He oversaw more anti-pot activity than Bush the Younger did. The reneging man has zero credibility with many of his former supporters....lucky for the lying POTUS, the alternative - Bishop Willard Romney - is an even bigger liar and a more detestable self-serving jerk.

And there is no third option, of course.....democracy lite.

Check it out:


By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 12:33

Do you not wonder why they chose the DNC convention to have their prayers, gdiafarte? Why did they not have their prayer meeting with the TNC, be it in the same room or next door?

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 12:35

Bfra, cross-country skiing, the way I do it, is not too strenuous....I take refreshments with me and stop often to listen to the silence and to appreciate the solitude that can only be found in the wintertime, deep in the woods....it's kind of a spiritual thing for me.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 12:39

These "Muslims" are probably Republican agents provocateurs trying to make the Democrats look "soft on Islam"....Sharia Law advocates or whatever....who's financing these worshipers? I smell a GOP rat in the woodpile here.

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 12:43

Loner - I agree with that! Many times when we have snow, I have walked in the woods & marveled at the peace, quiet & solitude of the surrounding. Of course, we don't have snows now like we had in the past. I for one say "Global Warming", that should get some comments. LOL

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 12:46

yogi - They didn't choose the DNC, they chose the same town! Why don't you find out where all of your false info comes from?

By: gdiafante on 9/4/12 at 12:48

Do you not wonder why they chose the DNC convention to have their prayers, gdiafarte?

Because the Dems believe in the Establishment Clause? Because Dems are not dumbass retards that think the President is a Muslim? Because Dems are tolerant?

The answer, of course is all of the above.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 12:49

Sheldon Adelson is probably bankrolling the "DNC's Muslim Prayer Event".....the super-Zionist knows how to play the hate game....he's trying to flip the Jewish vote over to the GOP.....using hate to do the job is an old trick that just might work.

The Dems are avoiding any official association with the much-maligned Abrahamic faith....somebody has put these "Muslims" up to it, in order to discredit the Democrats?

The original Boston Tea Partiers dressed up as Indians, when they did their dirty work...are today's Tea Baggers dressing up as Muslims, for the same reason? Don't expect the major media to dig up the facts....if the story is anti-Islamic, it gets published.

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 12:50


You're still wrong on my thoughts of Barack Obama. I'll say it again, if he was in that office legally you have never heard from me. And for [supposedly] intelligent people to vote for him when you don't know his legal name or anything about him [except what he's said] makes me wonder about your intelligence.

You and your fellow posters have made all kinds of accusations against me, but none of you have never shown any "proof" he's in that office legally.

The point he has spent millions to keep his identity off the records should make an intelligent person wonder: "What's going on"? Why does constantly refute his identity?

So I'll ask again, just who in the hell is this man? Do you know? Then tell me where you learned who he was.

Sorry Loner, I made an offer but y'all have brought me back in the game. We've got 63 days before it all happens. As I've noted: In 2008 the Electoral College voted him in without affirming his legal eligibility and the Senate approved their vote also with out affirming his legal identity. Will they do that again in November?

If they do, I hope you and your fellow dumbocrats are ready for the USSA.

By: gdiafante on 9/4/12 at 12:50

And for clarification, Bfra is correct. They chose the same city, not the convention itself.

See words 5 and 6 of the second sentence, middle paragraph of my 1:48 post for reference to yogi.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 12:57

Well, I tried to reason with Yogi last night...he seemed to agree to give the dead horse birther thing a rest...now he has resumed beating the carcass once again...as the troll beats the dead horse, flies, maggots and an unholy stench comes out, ruining the atmosphere.....apparently, Yogi likes that.....I'm going back into my "ignore the troll" mode....I tried, really, I did.....the poor bastard is obsessed with the issue.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 1:02

If Donald Trump could not back up the birther claim, after adopting that ludicrous position, we can safely assume that the allegation of BHO's foreign birth is fallacious. Trump must have spent thousands, perhaps millions, to prove the birther's claims...but still, some sick individuals go on believing the lies.

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 1:34

Wouldn't put it past yogi to don a robe & muslim head dress & attend the prayer session. If he can get someone to drive him, he doesn't seem to have the sense to find Charlotte, NC on his own.

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 2:40


You can read, and learn, about anything, but as you grow older and hopefully reach maturity, you'll learn a helluva lot more by living through a time period. Hopefully you're intelligent enough to understand those differences in education. Reading it and living it is different.

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 2:50


For you and your "buddies", I went in the Navy in January 1948 and was discharged in December 1955. It counted down to 6 years, 10 months and 29 days. When was you and your buddies in? You've stated you served 2 years in the Army. When did the Army accept a 2 year enlistment? What conflict was you in?

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 2:56

Is it just a convenience they chose to have their service in the same town, on the same date and 2 hours before the DNC began, bfra. Or is that normal?

If that's normal I wonder why they didn't have their prayer services in Tampa two hours before the RNC began.

Just wondering. I'll sure you're brilliant enough to tell me.

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 3:01


If Barry isn't a Muslim, why did he say he was? I understand you didn't hear him say he was, but I did in an interview with George Stephanopolas.

Was he lying?

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 3:08

yogi - I don't know, maybe the GOP hadn't arranged it at that time!
Now your 2yr enlistment in the Army, that you don't have sense enough to check out or can't find, because it isn't in "garbage sites".:

The Army already has a two or three year enlistment option, for some recruits. The Navy has a two and three year enlistment option available to some recruits.

Think maybe you can clear the sludge out of you head long enough to check the site I offered? Then you won't have to keep asking Loner about his 2yr enlistment.
