Hamas has always been a terrorist group. I prefer not to discuss this matter if you are someone who is in favor of terrorist groups. Thank you.

People leaving voicemail recordings that say, "I'll get back to you at MY earliest CONVENIENCE"

I can't take it any more. I think people with voicemail recordings saying, "I'll get back to you at MY earliest CONVENIENCE" have no idea that what they're actually saying is, "Leave me a message, but be warned that I'm only going to respond to you whenever I darn feel it's convenient for me, so too bad!"

Has anyone else run into these voicemail recordings before? Is it a sign of the times, bad etiquette, or just a bout of illiteracy?

"Newt Gingrich is not part of the right wing lunatic fringe" (an actual quote)


That's what a right winger said to me yesterday, and he actually said this with a straight face! I'm not kidding. Why on earth would this right winger lie this way? Or, more terrifying, what if he truly believes this, and sees Newt Gingrich as moderate? If that's true, what exactly does he see as right wing lunatic fringe? Scary.

But that's not all he said.

"He has some good ideas for the country," this right winger said about Newt Gingrich. Really? What good ideas? The same old tired ideas that got our country in the disastrous economic shape our country is currently in are suddenly good ideas. What exactly do they want to turn this country into? A third world nation?

He also said, "there are many jobs in this country that can't be filled because people are unwilling to get further training." WHAT? Where are these jobs, please, because last I looked, the Sunday paper in my city had almost NO jobs, and those available were part-time positions, or menial jobs. And what's worse, I know people who got sold that bullshit, and went back and got more training, or got a second degree, and still they couldn't find a job.

Are right wingers living in meth houses and doped up beyond all capacity to think, or what? What the hell is wrong with these people? Were their brains were sucked out by extraterrestrials?? Their eyes were yanked out and they can't see?

My reaction to comments like those of this right winger are never good. I don't suffer from an excess of patience, and I will indeed fly off the handle when I consider someone is pulling my leg, and to be perfectly honest, I spend half my life thinking Repukes are pulling my leg, because, really, how could people be that stupid???

I wish women in the U.S. automatically kept their last names when they marry

It's close to impossible to locate women friends from school or childhood, because marriage annihilates their name. The dissolving of the woman's name upon marriage is encouraged and associated as somehow being a romantic act.

Men can be located easily because they change nothing when they get married. They remain themselves.

Easier in Europe, where everyone keeps their last name when they get married.

For those who ever wondered what is the meaning of the word, 'gingrich'


http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=gingrich

Verb/Adjective, the act of abandoning your extremely sick wife on her hospital bed while you fuck the shit out of your mistress, whom you later marry and cheat on with a third woman. Coined after serial adulterer/giant hypocrite Republican Newt Gingrich.
Person 1: Man, did you hear that Larry Gingriched his wife Cindy?
Person 2: Wait, you mean he cheated on her, married the mistress, then cheated on the mistress with a third woman?
Person 1: Yup. And poor Cindy was dying from brain cancer, too!


A person who accuses someone of doing something immoral while doing the same thing him or herself; as in, Newt Gingrich accusing Bill Clinton of immorality while he was boinking his mistress. AKA: GIGANTIC hypocrite.
My boss called me to make sure I wasn't goofing off - but he was calling from the golf course - what a Gingrich!

And from the Sarah Ibarruri Dictionary:

noun/verb/adjective. Corrupt. Marked by perversion. Behaving in perverse ways.

Awww! Poor piggy defends privacy about his open marriage and sexual perversions...

Here's part of the interview of the pig:

“I think the destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to govern this country, harder to attract decent people to run for public office,” Gingrich said, his outrage dialed all the way to 11. “And I am appalled that you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like that.”

“Is that all you want to say, sir?” King asked.

Not by a long shot. “Every person in here knows personal pain,” Gingrich said. “Every person in here has had someone close to them go through painful things. To take an ex-wife and make it two days before the primary a significant question in a presidential campaign is as close to despicable as anything I can imagine.”

http://www.smh.com.au/world/gingrich-blasts-vicious-media-over-infidelity-question-20120120-1qaco.html

Personal pain? Despicable? REALLY, NEWT? Questions about your perversions are DESPICABLE? I'll tell you what, pig, YOU are despicable for your sick, evil behavior, that's what.

Every day I marvel at how poor and middle class Republicans vote against their self-interests

I've read the studies showing that Republicans are people who are led by fears, who love authority, who don't feel comfortable unless there is an enemy. However, there's another school of thought about why people whose very life is precariously balancing on a high wire choose to vote for those who persistently destroy American life for the poor and middle class, and ensure they never get out of the hole. It is this: that poor and middle class Republicans don't like being made to feel stupid.

The argument kinda goes like this:

Republicans talk on the same level as people who don't have a great deal of education. They don't bother people with statistics, with numbers, and they engage in a good amount of name-calling. They also use a lot of "us versus them" (them being the enemy, of course), which makes the poor and middle class Republican feel important. The argument also poses that Democrats use statistics, numbers, and tend not to name call. Democrats tend to the label groups as the enemy far less than Republicans do. As a result, poor and middle class Republicans feel less important, and less intelligent when listening to Democrats, and think of them as elitist.

But this brings me to another question:

HOW did poor and middle class Republicans come to regard education as elitist? WHEN did education become something to be despised, rather than something to be strived for? WHY did ignorance become something to be proud of? I grew up in a family within which EDUCATION AND KNOWLEDGE were things to be sought after, admired, desired, ideals, not things to be envied and to hate someone for if they employed that intelligence.

WHY NOT HERE? Why must intelligence be hidden and relegated to a lower level? Why do poor and middle class Republicans feel that lack of education is desirable?

I've been making a concerted effort for years not to be Chinese

There are just too many reasons not to. The American companies that now manufacture there cannot be held accountable. That's not even mentioning that Americans were left jobless so their CEOs and upper mgmt could pay, what, $1/day and fill their pockets even more with their cash?

In any case, I accidentally landed on this youtube from Stephen D Hammond. He ran into an interesting label. Here it is:

Salma Hayek gets knighted??? For WHAT? For marrying a mega-rich pal of right wingnut Sarkozy?

Clearly, knighting in France has just become one huge joke. With so many remarkable women in France, and this actress who has done nearly NOTHING gets KNIGHTED? No wonder the French are angry.

================

Actress Salma Hayek gains French knighthood

Film actress Salma Hayek has been awarded one of France's top honours by President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Mexican-born Hayek will become a Knight of the Legion d'Honneur at a ceremony in Paris later this year.

The 45-year-old's businessman husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, is an associate of Mr Sarkozy, while his father was also honoured in the New Year's list.

Some readers of French newspaper L'Express have said honours should be awarded to worthier recipients.

I'm not a churchy person but I went up to Plains, GA, to see Jimmy Carter preach at his church

I consider him one of THE BEST presidents we have ever had, and I'll argue anyone into the ground about that.

But aside from politics, here are some details of my visit.

The secret service was there, and frisked us, searched our purposes (lol), men's wallets, etc.
I sat in the front row, and he preached in a very interactive fashion. He asked us to tell where we were from.
He stands very straight and seems very fit.
He wore very sensible clothes, nothing at all flashy or expensive. Very plain man, like the town he is from (Plains, GA). lol
He has a memory that is astounding.
He used no cards to preach.
He is a lib through and through and made mention of some things that ordinary preachers might not, about poverty in this country and the world.
At the end, we were allowed to take 1 photo with him and his wife, if we desired (which everyone visiting did, as everyone visiting was ready with a camera)
His wife looks lovely.

Here's the Maranatha Church website, which has a photo of him preaching:
