1. Why do you have to post these subtle anti-Obama threads?
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 10:09 PM by Rabrrrrrr
If you hate him because you're a racist, just say it.

I thought this was DEMOCRATIC underground, not AYN RAND WANNABE underground.

(just giving you an appropriate welcome to GD!)

4. I don't need to watch it - I know where you're coming from.
Have fun casting that vote for McCain while the rest of us fight for the Constitution.

:eyes:


(seriously, though, no I didn't watch it - it came up as a separate file that my computer needs to run, and since I had no idea what it was or where it was from, I decided not to let the computer run it)

8. I got it from a good friend of mine...
A good Democrat, and one who would never send along anything questionable...

I recommend it.......but you already know that!

7. That's the answer. We have to take care of each other and celebrate the value of life
because the government won't.

If enough of us were like this, we'd obsolete politics overnight.

Why don't you have the GET YOUR HANKIES READY warning out front where we can all see it?

Beautiful, tear-inducing, and incredibly uplifting.

It's women like this who remind us not to despair for our country, for our nation is full of people like her. We may not see them every day, but they're OUT THERE, just the same.

32. Me, too.
Looking at the corruption and greed that has overtaken our government, we need to be reminded that as compared to those Americans who are truly caring and giving, they are just a handful of pesky flies in the ocean of sweet American cream.
