Thank you, Sonic. And, no, I'm not a racist. I do believe, however, that the two races cannot live together peacefully and should be some form of separate but equal. I don't know what form this will take, perhaps they could come out at night and us in the daytime or vice-versa. Americans are clever people and I have faith we'll figure this out in a way that does not involve inter-marriage or cross-breeding.

Probably because every time they open the door there's some black republican in there doin' their wives?

His lying to the American People had most to do with his loss.

The Tax Return thing was a debacle for him, as it showed him to be unAmerican, even in his hiding money in tax havens.

He could have won the election, had he release his returns.

But there must have been damaging info in his tax returns, and he viewed the risk as too great and stonewalled.

And Americans all said "this guy's a crook", just like Nixon!!

But you love Repugnants who lie. Proven by your devotion to Bush, a serial liar.

Romney pretty much paid his dues having been vetted for the second time which gave him an advantage. Unfortunately, his Mormonism was a significant obstacle, and he simply didn't have the much needed urgency in his message. He also let several golden opportunites pass by which could have sealed the deal in playing it too safe. Then, of course, there was the hurricane days before the election when he simply disappeared and Obama got the spotlight.
Unfortunately.

Romney's religion was a problem only for the fundamentalist Christians who stayed home and elected Obama. Screw them.

Herman Cain got caught having a mistress.

You forget John Edwards??

How else could you say something as stupid as "How come liberal candidates never seem to have any skeletons in their closets around election time?"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

From what I hear they don't have the Feds printing out fake money and devaluing their currency just to keep their economy afloat.
Well if Flack is correct, the Fed is printing money and growing wheat which is eventually going to cause another Great Depression.

WalMart is limiting sales of ammo to 3 boxes per person per day. Don't ask me how WalMart keeping track but there is plenty at the WalMart nearest me and I live in a state with boo coo guns of every size and shape. And the firing range at the nearest Gander Mountain is busy day and night.
What would you call a "popular" size?
We should not be sending any ammunition to Lebanon.

Can you try it one more time?
During my temporary absence a while back, I went to another website and, after a few weeks, lo and behold, Tenzing showed up.

He actually found me and stated as such. I even had a different topix name. But instead of joining in, he disappeared.

Then when I ventured back on here seeing my pretend namesake had not posted in over a week, he showed up for a few posts and then disappeared again.

Tenzing left but my pretend namesake reappeared as soon as I started posting again.

Tenzing I can take. The other one is a bit creepy.

Wouldn't say that's a true blanket statement.

But what's ironic is that many fundamentalist Christians are black. And they still voted for Obama.

You see, "carol," the thing about republicans is that they're instinctively greedy and competitive. They will literally do anything to "win" against another human being, even if "winning" means they're gonna die too. It's just what those people do. Here, come sit on my lap and I'll explain it to you.

Long ago and far away there was a land where bad people - conservatives generally, no matter what they called themselves - did horrible things to other people in the name of national progress (personal gain.) The things they did were sooooo horrible that it caused a genetic mutation in their victims rendering them incapable of ever trusting anyone again or of ever not being scared of loss.

As the survivors reproduced they not only passed along the mutation, they codified it, turned it into a religion of sorts. It's based on the premise that your fellow man will screw you given half a chance and not think twice about it, so you're better off screwing your neighbor first. It's a cynical reading of the Golden Rule but it's the truth nonetheless.

They knew that just coming right out and saying this would bring down the wrath of the people on their heads so they dressed it up in language which made it seem they were merely following god's instructions when he famously said, "GO FORTH AND LIE, CHEAT, AND STEAL TO GET YOU A PILE BEFORE IT'S ALL GONE!" OH, "AND DON' FO'GET TO PUT MY SHARE IN THE PLATE ON SATURDAY OR EVEN SUNDAY!"

Those people been playin' this game so long they fo'get they playin' it. They could be up to their nose in raw sewage and they'd still be tryin' to figure an angle that might allow them to capture the market in shit.

So you see, "carol," it's not that those folks are "bad," what they are is genetically scared of losin' their stuff. That? Oh, um, that's just my cane. I keep it there so it's handy if I want to stand up and stretch my legs.

You didn't answer my question. How come liberal candidates never seem to have any skeletons in their closet around election time?

Did you know Obama won the Senate in Illinois twice because of alleged sex scandals surrounding both of his opponents?

You don't find that a little bit odd?

Sex scandals are a sure fire way to discredit anyone - whether the allegations are true or not.

You underestimate the propagandists if you don't think they would stoop to any level to discredit their favored candidate opponents.

Well, that and ridicule. But the truth is you flatter yourself to use the term, "opposition." You're more, sort of, background noise. The "opposition" has skin in the game; specifically, little Asian girls for sale over the internet. Business, carol, that's the enemy. the folks who will start wars and sell children as sex slaves to make money. It's actually kinda helpful when folks like you fight back, kinda passes the time until the heavyweights show up to do their own fighting... which they never, ever will.
