5. I have never seen Mr Carter flash this sign, not even at the University of Texas...
But, apparently, these people do it at all kinds of events.

8. Mr. Carter was kind of sedate about hand signs, I haven't seen Reagan use it either.
Not that he wasn't a little devilish, just not prone to hand gestures other than a thumbs-up. :thumbsup:

15. Now, I'm sure you're getting alarmed over nothing.
Edited on Fri Jan-30-09 08:28 PM by timtom
It's certainly coincidence that all these people flash that sign.

Why everyone I know does...oh, wait. No one I know uses that sign. And I don't remember any of my friends in Austin (when I lived there) making the sign, either.

Hmmm. Oh well. Call it the 14 highjackers syndrome (5 of whom were shown to be alive after the incident).

I love me some coincidences.

20. Dunno bout that hand signal, but Carter was one of the most Evangelical Christian presidents ever..
.
.

And even though Mistah BoOOOsh tried to claim that he was extremely religious, David Kuo, Deputy Director of the Bush Faith-Based Initiatives Program QUIT in disgust when he learned that the program was a fake front to fool Bush's so-called Christian base.

Kuo even mentions in his book "Tempting Faith" that he had witnessed Karl Rove laughing at how lame, naive and gullible he thought the Christian Right were; how easy they were to pull in by the hoards and FAKE OUT.



It's insane that even today so many of them still believe that George W. is a devout Christian!!


As far as President Carter, I remember him commenting once on Larry King that he not only was he an evangelical, but he was PROUD to be referred as one.

Still.. if you think about it though -- as religious as he is-- Republicant's will NEVER admit to it.

They'd rather refer voters think read Ann Coulter's book "Godless" and leave it at that.

It's sad that they're so easily blinded by GOP lies.

American Sign for "I love you"

Note that the thumb is extended in the I love you sign and not the hook'em horns.

31. No, they are saying "Y", thumb isn't sticking out. It is American sign language "I +L+U" together
Edited on Sat Jan-31-09 01:10 AM by uppityperson
Here is a chart. They are doing just the "y"


This is "I" +"L" + "Y" which equals ily which equals I Love You.

36. NO, the thumb position is wrong in those pictures.
"I love you" is when the thumb is out, not tucked in or held close to the folded fingers.

32. Obama is doing the shaka sign, which is a traditional Hawaiian hand signal.
I learned that while watching the inauguration because Obama and his entire family kept doing it and the commentator explained it.

33. Shaka Brah! The thumb and pinky finger are extended, while the middle 3 are folded in...
Then the hand is shaken back and forth a few times. As you said, the First Family waved to the marching band from Punahou School using the shaka sign.

The photo in the OP is ILY in Sign Language. My kids learned a little Sign when they were teens, and used it a lot.

68. When I was a teenager...
..in the SoCal beach culture of the 1970s, that sign meant "Hang loose, bruddah." (Probably still does.)

Thumb and pinky out, the other three folded down, and shake it like a medium vibrato.

35. Not all of the signs are the same.
With the thumb tucked in, it is a metal music thing. With the thumb out, it is sign language for "I love you." The position of the thumb makes the difference.
