Oh, how come you never complain about one of your fellow Libtards plagiarizing something?!?

Ooookay. Show me one "libtard" ,(Rogue tm reg'd)not two or three, one "Libtard" (Rogue tm reg'd) plagiarism. Try it. I don't expect a response.

I don't expect a response either to my proving you had deleted a paragraph from the very words you plagiarized. You know something? I don't want to be mean or harsh with you, because I was taught not to kick people when they are down, not to stomp on cadavers, not to mock low I.Q. persons. So I will remain civil, will not call you crude and LSR-type names,(I have used, will use now and then such names as "fool", occasionally "stupid" when you exceed limits, "clueless", you know, so you don't forget who and what you are, names that can be bandied around kids, even) as that would not be nice.

I noticed that your bosom birther buddy, Justice ha ha LRS, queried as to what my race is. Is your racism contagious or what?

Poor Rogue. Your French is really non-existent.

So is Wiktionary. Read carefully now :

Maladie de tête is not commonly used except to depict someone who is nuts. And it's not coined "maladie de tête", rather it is colloquially called "malade dans la tête"

A headache is a "mal de tête", not "maladie de la tête".

Sign.

Take a powder is something everyone knows, no need to go on and on.

But I do/ It is you anti-birthers who judge people just because they are Republicans or Democrats. Case in point was Richard Nixon who was a progressive who started the EPA and OSHA, he wanted to start wage and price controls, a NATIONAL HEALTH CARE system and he did start gasoline rationing which only acerbated the oil crisis. And he was as nasty as LBJ and Obama but you hate him simply because he was a Republican and nothing else.
Now, what do you think about Harry Belafonte's not so "classy" initial accusations against Colon Powell? He is a typical Libtard that throws out the race card when ever he can.

1968, Forty Years Later: A Look Back at the Orangeburg Massacre When SC Police Opened Fire on Black Students Protesting Segregation
April 3, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/ysw9ts
On February 8th, 1968, a crowd of black students gathered on the campus of South Carolina State University to protest segregation at Orangeburg’s only bowling alley. Dozens of police arrived on the scene and the students lit a bonfire on a street in front of the campus. Tensions escalated and police officers opened fire into the crowd. When the shooting stopped, three students were dead and 27 wounded. We speak with the only person convicted of wrongdoing in what became known as the Orangeburg Massacre, Cleveland Sellers.

Bush Has Highest Disapproval Rating in History of Gallup Poll
Meanwhile, President Bush has set a new record. He now has the highest disapproval rating of any president in the seventy-year history of the Gallup Poll. In the most recent USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, 69 percent of Americans disapproved of Bush’s job performance. The previous record was held by Harry Truman, who had a 67 percent disapproval rate in 1952. Bush also holds the record for having the highest approval rating of any president in Gallup’s history. In September 2001, in the days after the 9/11 attacks, Bush’s approval spiked to 90 percent.

George Bush’s birthday present: Higher approval rating than President Obama
Posted at 11:11 pm on July 6, 2013 by Twitchy Staff
President George W. Bush’s 67th birthday passed quietly on Friday, but he did receive his share of well wishes on Twitter, along with one encouraging note from the folks at National Review. Despite continuing to shoulder the blame for just about every failure of the current administration, Bush currently enjoys a higher approval rating than President Obama.

Black Republican History

Martin Luther King, Jr.

(1929-1968)

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on January 15, 1929 at his family home in Atlanta, Georgia. King's grandfather was a Baptist preacher, and his father was pastor of Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church. Dr. King earned his own Bachelor of Divinity degree from Crozier Theological Seminary in 1951 and earned his Doctor of Philosophy from Boston University in 1955. As a Baptist Minister, he was an eloquent civil rights movement leader from the mid-1950's until his death by assassination on April 4, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee where he was there to support striking sanitation workers.

As pastor of a Baptist church in Montgomery, Alabama, Dr. King led a black bus boycott. He and ninety others were arrested and indicted under the provisions of a law making it illegal to conspire to obstruct the operation of a business. Dr. King and several others were found guilty, but appealed their case. A Supreme Court decision in 1956 ended Alabama's segregation laws enacted by Democrats. After this success, Dr. King was made president of the newly established Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Dr. King led the 1963 March on Washington where he delivered his most famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Dr. King became a national hero as he promoted non-violent means to achieve civil rights reform. He was awarded the 1964 Noble Peace Prize for his efforts, and President Ronald Reagan made Dr. King’s birthday a national holiday.

Carter G. Woodson

(1875 - 1950)

"Switch parties if you are not being represented."

These are the words of Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson, distinguished Black author, editor, publisher, and historian. Carter G. Woodson believed that Blacks should know their past in order to participate intelligently in the affairs in our country. He strongly believed that Black history - which others have tried so diligently to erase - is a firm foundation for young Black Americans to build on in order to become productive citizens of our society.

Known as the father of Black history, Dr. Woodson at the peak of the Harlem Renaissance established "Negro History Week" in 1926 during the second week of February to commemorate the birthday of abolitionist and orator Frederick Douglass and President Abraham Lincoln. Woodson sought to create a forum that later became Black History Month. He was also instrumental in the founding of the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History in 1915.

Frederick Douglass

(1817 - 1895)

Frederick Douglass was one of the foremost leaders of the abolitionist movement which fought to end slavery within the United States in the decades prior to the Civil War. He eagerly attended the founding meeting of the republican party in 1854 and campaigned for its nominees.

Yep, just peaceful protests. No fire bombs thrown, no rocks throw (rocks are deadly weapons) and no guns were fired at the cops either, etc. And you did not mention the police officer who was inured prior to the police opening fire either. And the only conviction was an activist!!! Yep, you Libtards always ignore the facts.

Yep, I remember the riots after the assassination of MLK. My older brother and a few friends went do to the "horse farm" which was on the edge of a place we called "Gum Sprints" which was a black shanty town South of Alexandria, VA. Our school bus use to pick up the kids before stopping to pick us up on our way to school as we knew many of the poor black kids.
Well, there did not seem to be a riot but a few abandoned buildings were on fire and a few of our black friends saw us and joined us sitting on the fence several hundred yards from the burning buildings.
Then a dozen cops wearing blue Army helmets showed up and told us to go home. We did as they told us but none of us were doing anything wrong.
Oh course we teased some of our friends about who set fire to the buildings.
Oh, there is the Mount Vernon Hospital were the open field was back in 1968.

There are businesses like construction etc. in California that assign workers to other states Rogue. I have a cousin who was sent here from Atlanta for cable industry training so what’s your point?

So your advice for the thumper is to keep it in a tool box? Guess I should have just stuck with my Louisville slugger.
