You're not even embarrassed you didn't know there were 13 colonies in the first presidential election?
So which Liberal Progressive Secularist Elementary School did you attend - which is more to the point since you've already embarrassed yourself.
'Colonies' suggests they were still part of Great Britain, colonies don't vote for president. We are after all the United States of America, not the United Colonies of America.

And technically -

Only ten states out of the original thirteen cast electoral votes in this election. North Carolina and Rhode Island were ineligible to participate as they had not yet ratified the United States Constitution. New York failed to appoint its allotment of eight electors because of a deadlock in the state legislature.

GOPigs controlled the House, Senate and WHite House in 2003. Right through to 2007.

So all you've proven is that Bush's own Party ignored him, at best.

But even that is a lie, as Bush was out front in promoting home ownership and pushing for loans for all.

You've been proven to be a liar on this issue before.

So you wait awhile and roll out the same lies again.

Not working, Carol. The collapse of the economy is on Bush, as indicated in the history books.

You're a liar and a fool.

Bush and Bernacke tried to warn Congress of the impending housing market crisis numerous times beginning in 2003. It was your precious Democrats who resisted any oversight because most of them were on F&F's payroll.
You can thank Bush for fixing the mess Clinton made with a communication breakdown between the FBI and CIA to cover his own ass and the controversy of donations by the Chinese.
You can thank Bush for putting into place effective measures to keep your ass safe after disrupting numerous terrorist plots and more attacks - one being the LAX airport.
You can thank Bush for making Obama's job a helluva lot easier not having to worry about Saddam in the Middle East while pursuing his own wars which is creating a whole new kind of animosity towards the U.S. because of his accleration of drones.
What has Obama done to make us any safer?
The answer is nothing. Why? Because he is following exactly in Bush's policies and anti-terrorist strategic footsteps.
You can thank Bush for that too.

Isn't your Chicken Little routine getting rather stale at this stage in your life?
Thank you for waving your liberal sign of intolerance once again.

He was most definitely suspended. Only because of public outcry did these liberals tuck their tails between their legs, apologize and reverse the decision.

But you would have fired that lifeguard for saving a person's life because of a liberal politically correct policy and then gone crawling back to offer him his job back after another public outcry and other lifeguards quitting in protest.

Liberals do the right thing only when doing the wrong thing backfires.

Maybe you can explain that to me. I've never quite understood that mentality.

Pretty sure you would know.

And you ran with it and made up nonsensical crap about the original 13 Colonies, as if they were all members of the same family or at least kissin' cousins. As usual, pure bullshit!!

No wonder. FL only became a State in 1845. Figures you'd be clueless about the Founding Fathers and the original 13 Colonies.

I live in one of the original colonies, CT dates back to 1635.

FL was a Spanish colony when our Constitution was written.

You newcomers know little about the founding of our nation. Your ancestors were bowing to the Spanish Crown while mine were forming the USA.

Now imagine that plenty of people are still known in their small rural districts where their name and address has been on the voting list for decades, your grandfather for instance.

What liberals, you nasty little liar??

He was suspended by a Private Company. How do you equate that with liberals??

Are you now saying private companies can't operate based on their own written policies??

You've once again made a complete asshole out of yourself for attempting to blame Gov't on this decision.

It was an employee of a private company hired to provide lifeguards.

Here's the company;

I said forefathers not founding fathers, Carol with her typical spin. And you missed the point as usual.

I never made reference to a specific individual but a group of individuals(our forefathers).

I've yet to see any critical thinking from you, you take everything at face value, although you are good at spinning things to suit your needs.

Frankly both the left wing and the right wing need to go jump off a pier and lets those in the middle of political spectrum have the reins. They certainly couldn't do any worse.
The textbooks come out of Texas.....nitwit!!

So it's the sicko liberals of TX who are trying to indoctrinate our nation's youth.

Gawd, you're stupid!!

Conservative justices stress federal overreach in gay marriage case

""A majority of Supreme Court justices expressed concern about a federal law that excludes same-sex couples from marriage in the court's second gay marriage case in history on Wednesday. The probing questions from both wings of the court suggest the law could be struck down in a victory for the gay rights movement, just a day after it appeared unlikely the court would decide the Proposition 8 California case in a way that affirmed gay marriage.
At the arguments, the court's conservative leaning justices asked pointed questions about whether the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act intrudes into states' traditional right to regulate marriage, while the more liberal justices seemed amenable to the argument that DOMA discriminates against gay people and was passed with the intention of excluding an unpopular group. The law prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages even in the nine states and District of Columbia that allow them.
Key swing vote Anthony Kennedy, who has written two landmark opinions upholding gay rights, seemed unconvinced by the argument advanced by attorney Paul Clement that DOMA defines marriage as only between opposite-sex couples to avoid confusion. Clement said that the federal government has an interest in "uniformity," and passed the law to avoid having to treat same-sex couples differently based on whether they live in states that allow gay marriage or not. But Kennedy pointed out that DOMA excludes gay couples from marriage in more than 1,100 federal statutes and laws, which has a substantial impact on the "day to day life" of gay couples and their children. He said the law does not provide uniformity because it affects "only one aspect of marriage."
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg interjected that excluding married couples from sick leave, tax benefits, Social Security survivor benefits, and hundreds of other federal benefits and obligations relegates same-sex couples to a "skim milk marriage," that is substantially worse than what heterosexual couples have access to.
Kennedy joined with conservative colleagues Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito in asking tough questions about whether the federal government was overreaching with the statute. Kennedy said DOMA did not seem to recognize states's "historical" responsibility for marriage and said he thinks the central question of the case is whether the federal government has the authority to regulate marriage.""

You know, Jane, I was just wondering... do you think George Bush set up an easel in the tub or did he just draw his toes from memory? You don't suppose there are photos somewhere? I imagine it gets lonely spending your entire retirement in Texas?
