Just absolutely amazing

Posted Saturday, November 26, 2011, at 6:58 AM

To say it's been an interesting weekend in the news so far would be an understatement.

I have opened so many cans of worms, have at it folks. There really is no real "Topic" except there are days I wish I didn't know how to read and that computers and the internet never existed.

Feel free to ask my opinion on the subject matter of any of the links. Be warned you may not like my answers.

This last one is a whole page full of links to the same subject. I read one of the links Thursday I think.

Which one are you referring to Mike?

I DONT THINK EVERY ONE OF THE RIGHT IS BUMS.I DO THINK ADHERENCE TO AND IDEOLOGICAL POSITION WITHOUT COMPROMISE IN A SOCIETY AS DIVERSFIED AS OURS IS NOT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE COUNTRY.

IN my humble opinion it serves no usefull purpose other than to create a gridlock to take us to a society of intolerance which leads to blood shed....The comment the first time around is very telling as to that ideology.EVERYTHING on the right is not wrong as everything on the left is not wrong......what is wrong is when nobody listens to each other.THE stereotyping is over the hill,and so distructive and divisive that it will reap more destruction before any thing positive will happen in this country.NOBODY WILL SAY IT...... I WILL..... THIS WAS NOT THE TIME FOR A BLACK PRESIDENT......IT HAS BROUGHT OUT THE WORST IN US......AND I FEEL THAT THE OBJECT HERE IS TO MAKE SURE HIS FAILURE IS SUCH THAT IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN IN THE NEXT 100 YRS.......THE IDEA OF WE ARE ATTACKING HIS POLICIES IS PURE BUNK AND EVERYONE KNOWS IT......THEY ARE TO AFRAID TO SAY IT..........so there it's said.......it is a silent but deadly wedge issue.EVERY ATTACK HAS A RACIAL OVERTONE TO IT WITH THE DOUBLE STANDARD SO GLARING AS TO BLIND YOU.HE CANT TAKE A VACATION WITHOUT CRITICIZIM......PITEFULL....180 VS 60 AND HE STILL GETS HAMMERED AMAZING AND THEY JUSTIFY IT ....GIVE ME A BREAK....THE NAMES,THE CARTOONS,THE ATTACK ON THE CHILDREN (PICKENINNEY'S) REMEMBER THAT?? I guess the kids deserved that,not one word as to that was wrong not one, KENYAN COLONIAL THINKING.IT IS SO OUTRAGEOUS AS TO NOT MAKE ANY SENSE ANYMORE.......And it continues at this hour,some will not be satisfied till there is blood in the streets and they will blame him for that too.Afterall the south didnt win" THE FIRST TIME AROUND".........THEY WONT WIN THIS TIME EITHER but some will die trying....RATHER THAN DO WHATS BEST FOR THE NATION........AND THAT IS PULL TOGETHER.

lamont, your response was not what I was expecting, and I can't fully agree with everything you have said.

I truly do have a problem with the double standard that seems to exist. Bush and Obama's arms fiasco was small potatoes to the treason committed against this country by Reagan et.al.

That Obama didn't mention God in his address is a big deal to some, but it's no big deal when so many republican candidates committed the same offense.

Lastly, Mr. Cain. Sexual allegations aside, his behavior in the board room leaves much to be desired.

I've said once or more, and I'll say it again. All we are being offered are scoundrels, different parties, different colors, different coats, but scoundrels non the less.

One more thing I've said more than once. The division and damn the consequences attitude that have permeated the political landscape will be our undoing.

There are many things wrong right now, but everyone has lost sight of what is right about this country.

Quite honestly, those of you mine and Mike's and lamonts age. Can you ever remember such a foul atmosphere in the political landscape as we've seen in the last 5 years or so? Look to Europe today. Like what you see? I don't. Several countries on the verge of civil war because of the damn the consequences attitude.

A country with the citizens working in partnership with each other can achieve great things.

Well now I've had my say.

Sadly, after reading Rush's uppity comment this morning, lamont may be more right than wrong.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Mon, Nov 28, 2011, at 5:26 AM

YOU CAN TRY ALL YOU WANT UNTIL SOMEONE OF NOTE ON THE RIGHT TELLS HIM TO SHUT HIS BIGOTED MOUTH,YOU ARE CONDONING AND HE IS JUST A PART OF THE PROBLEM,,,,,,,,,,,SORRY BUCKSHOT YOU MAY NOT CARE WETHER HE IS BLACK OR NOT BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE OVERALL COMMENTS DURING HIS ENTIRE TIME THERE FROM THE RIGHT IT TELLS A DIFFERENT STORY.A CONSERVATIVE OUT OF PRINCIPAL WILL DISAGEE,I DONT CARE ABOUT THAT,BUT YOU DONT TURN YOUR BACK ON YOUR COUNTRY BECAUSE IT IS NOT GOING YOUR WAY YOU MAKE COMPROMISES THAT IS HOW IT'S DONE.COUNTRY FIRST.

Funny thing dept ceiling was raised last week not a peep....why noT???????because there was no more political hay to be made.....dont want to be blamed again for a credit downgrade.We couldnt get a status of forces agreement to protect our troops from iraque law.....Press says ok were out of here and he's wrong???????? WRONG WOULD HAVE BEEN STAY AND HAVE ONE OF OUR PEOPLE HUNG FOR DOING THERE JOB THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN WRONG.wHAT IS THIS GARBAGE STAY TILL VICTORY,WHAT VICTORY THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS WW2.THERE IS NO VICTORY AS WE PERCIEVE IT.IT IS DONE AT A COST THAT WE SHOULD BE SO MAD ABOUT THAT IT IS UNSPEAKABLE,AND IT WILL KEEP RISING AS THE YEARS GO ON.10 YRS OF COMBAT SOME OF THOSE MEN AND WOMEN WILL OCCUPY OUR JAILS FOR NO REASONS THAT WILL MAKE SENSE.BUT YOU SEE ONLY THE POOR HAD TO SUIT UP.

aND buck shot when your people say our goal is to make him a one term president from day one that sounds to me like sabotage.....we call it fired before hired.....what do you call it???The reason that is so hedious is with that attitude you have effectively said we dont care about the country, people can suffer we want the power.

I call the comment the south lost the first time around in it's context a racist statment, and for me I consider it a threat therfore my reaction to that threat will be as deadly as the threat implys.

I know i am going to get were talking about states rights........STATES RIGHTS GOT US SLAVERY,AND THAT IS WHAT IS HAPPENING AGAIN AS THE VOTE IS DEPRESSED AND LABOR LAWS ARE DECIMINATED,EDUCATION IS DENIED BASED ON MONEY,HEALTHCARE BASED ON MONEY ,HOUSING BASED ON RACE/MONEY WE ARE REINVENTING THE WHEEL.GOING BACKWARDS INSTEAD OF FORWARD SO THAT WE CAN HAVE POWER THE POWER TO CONTROL PEOPLE AND REINVENT SLAVES..........HOW PITIFULL IS THAT........LATTER

-- Posted by lamont on Mon, Nov 28, 2011, at 10:36 AM

BUCKSHOT...I AM NOT SAYING RUSH SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN I AM NOT SAYING YOU OR ANYONE SHOULD NOT BE CRITICAL.....I AM TALKING ABOUT HOW IT IS DONE AND THE COMMENTS WITH RACIST OVERTONES THAT PERMEATE THE DEBATE.i hope that clears it for you.

OUT OF BOTH COUNTRY'S, SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN EITHER.WE GO TO WAR AND DONT PAY THE BILLS GIVE TAX BREAKS NOW THAT THE BILLS ARE COMMING DUE IT'S SOMEONE ELSES FAULT .SORRY DONT BUY IT.

I NEVER AGREED WITH THE STATMENT YOU ARE REFERING TO .Personally i thought it was BRAVODO THAT WE COULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT.LIKE MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

THE EPA is not doing anything that was not done under press BUSH.AND It would appear that more permites have been issued under this pressident than BUSH ......GO FIGURE.THE PARTY LINE IS OK EXCEPT they forget to mention that they want to drill places that puts some other things including people at risk,tell the whole story.also is money the only thing that counts?Todays money and tomorrows problems.....example ATLANTA AND THE ARSENIC LEECHING INTO THE BOISE RIVER,THE DRINKING WATER.......

I dont care about critics it is how you critercize and the VERBAGE used.THAT is what I AM TALKING ABOUT.....AND IF YOU DONT UNDERSTAND THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE SOUTH LOST THE FIRST TIME AROUND AND ........WELL I DONT KNOW WHAT TO TELL YOU......TO YOU THAT MAY MEAN NOTHING TO ME IT MEANS SOMETHING.

FIRST AND FOREMOST it should be Both party's intrest to do whats best for the country.....at that they have BOTH FAILED.I will be the first to say that. I will also say there fight for power has contributed more to the none success of this man than any one thing. HE has success they are overshadowed by the in fighting.BOTH PARTY'S HAD A RESPONSIBILTY TO GOVERN AND THEY DIDNT......WE THE PEOPLE DO THE SUFFERING.......LIKE THEY SAID ABOUT PATTON ......HIS GLORY OUR BLOOD...OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT..........I TOO AM CRITICAL OF THIS PRESIDENT DONT THINK IM NOT,I WAS CRITICAL OF PRESS.BUSH BUT I HAD NO REASON TO BE RACIST OR DISRESPECTFULL AND I CERTAINLY DIDNT ATTACK HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN.DIDNT ABIDE BY IT WHEN HE WAS IN OFFICE AND WOULDNT NOW.BUT THERE SEEMS TO BE A DIFFERENT STANDARD FOR THIS FAMILY WHY IS THAT????

I AM LISTENING.........CHANGE MY MIND......I AM LISTENING..............LATTER

Mike, like I said, the allegations aside, when one looks at his behavior with stockholders money when he was on the board of that energy company that went bust, I'm sorry, I wouldn't trust him with one penny of mine.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Mon, Nov 28, 2011, at 6:12 PM

Umm, let's see. Me, most likely you and Donna, lamont, the ladies that blog here as well as the ones that comment on a regular basis on these blogs and present themselves as rational human beings. You know why? I don't see any of you as LIARS AND THIEVES.

-- Posted by royincaldwell on Mon, Nov 28, 2011, at 6:26 PM

THE EX GOV.of louisiana was on maddow tonight buddy roemer i think his name is, republican.He is running for president cant get on the debates.WHY??????????? wants to talk about money in poletics.I liked what he had to say.BASICALLY THAT IT SHOULDNT BE THERE.INTRESTING GUY......

-- Posted by lamont on Mon, Nov 28, 2011, at 8:47 PM

THIS guy did mention that they asked him if he had gotten contributions above 500 thou last month......exscuse me ....what's that got to do with it???????????? that got my attention

-- Posted by lamont on Tue, Nov 29, 2011, at 11:34 AM

Thanks for your vote of confidence Roy. I'd be a great president....

heck if people just asked me now, starting with little things, I could fix lots! Dang serious too. But no one asks. And probably wouldn't listen to my simple answers,...cuz it would be hard to be that strong!

-- Posted by jessiemiller on Tue, Nov 29, 2011, at 1:34 PM

LOL. It comes down to common sense doesn't it Mike? But who listens to that?

Sometimes when I'm listening to the news.... and bad consequences occur, I think to myself (sarcastically of course) "Didn't see that coming... " Meaning of course, that of course I saw it coming.

Or Ya see someone doing something that you KNOW isn't going to work well... I feel like asking "How's that working for ya?"

That's why I do my blog.... cuz so much is so ridiculous,

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
