McCain is coming to Buffalo

Thank you for the kind sentiment. My Dad sorely missed! Agreed... I'm learning volumes from Hansie post. I would have loved for him and my Dad to have met and volleyed some thoughts around. Dad was a carreer submariner. I'll bet he and Hansie have many of the same books.  (Jul 28, 2008 | post #339)

Hansie, I don't let him get to me...he's a ranter and a raver who sometimes has a good point but no substance to back it up. I'll be his friend tho if I find out he can turn water into wine! (most likely water into whine). I do understand relativism: If all things are relative, a relativist bases his/her ethics/judgements according to the circumstances at hand. This being a nightmare of an election year, I think I'd rather be a Relativist than a Republican. Sorry for the two day lapse... needed some "hubby-time ".  (Jul 28, 2008 | post #338)

Better some obscure senator in a bathroom than the Commander in Chief in the Oval Office staining a blue dress.  (Jul 26, 2008 | post #294)

Jim... Hansie is not a liberal... he is a relativist "and darnesd proud of it". Perhaps a relativism smacks of liberalism, but I'm thinking there is a difference! Also, I'm pretty sure he is no scumbag. My, oh my how the tides have turned... now I'm defending Hansie...roflmao!  (Jul 26, 2008 | post #288)

I'm loving this side of Hansie! The more I read the more he sounds like my late step-dad, a true patriot and student of the constitution. He once said, "the only way I'd vote for John McCain was if he ran against Hillary Clinton" He also referred to Obama as the Anti-Christ. He lived the last 22 years of his amazing life in AZ, so he was familiar with the McCain machine. What amazes me... he made these comments almost two years ago... how many folks (save those from IL) knew Obama's name 2 years ago? I wish every day he was here to guide me through this tough election!  (Jul 26, 2008 | post #287)

Kudos to you, oops! i know exactly who Horatio Alger is and I was floored when I read your post! I've been semi-composing a post based on HA. I know the female version of HA...my mother. born a coal miner's daughter (in Charleston, WV, not Butcher's Holler). Sidebar... my great-grandparents lived on $35 Social Security per month, had no electric, phone or inside toilet. This after my great-grandfather worked 55 years in the coal mines, accident free, too... I have the certificate he earned. Too bad all the certificate was good for might be to wipe his butt. Anyway, my mother worked her way up the ladder in the inurance industry and became one of the top three producers in the country (S&E lines, not home, auto, life). She retired at age 70 and now 4 years later receives offers every month to return as a consultant. I could go on and on, but don't want to bore anyone. she is my hero, and for years I've said the embodiment of Horatio Alger's "rags to riches" bootstrap mentality.  (Jul 26, 2008 | post #286)

Thanks, Tired, I felt the same way about Jennifer. If you read Han's latest post, you will note a knder, gentler Hansie. Let's give him a chance, he has some great thoughts.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #272)

Hans... 1. Thank you for the very eloquent note. Complete reformation would go against your grain, so far as I can tell, and that's not what any reasonable "SPARRING PARTNER" would really want. 2. I agree with you about the Bud, but I love Patron or any quality agave juice! 3. What a great story! Thanks for sharing. Mr. J. sounds like he was a great man. How fortunate for you to have made his acquaintance. You've most likely read the previous posts... the ones telling me you are well travelled, informed and not such a bad guy. I guess I just blew into the thread at a bad time. I felt bad for Jennifer and stood up for her right to write, so to speak. BTW... my father's name is Hans  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #265)

C'mon, Anti, you know Barry had good reasons for what he did. I can't think of any, but YOU KNOW HE DID!!! Let's not be as hard on him as others have been on McCain... it just wouldn't be fair and you know someone will accuse us of playing the race card or something equally absurd.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #262)

Anyone having problems collecting child support?

The support is owed to YOU, not the child. Good luck collecting tho... my ex owes $18,888.28 and says to me, "I'd rather owe it to you than cheat you out of it". Well, he's done both. We were in court one day, his license had been revoked and when I pointed out to a cop that the man getting behind the wheel of that car has no license the cop said, "what do you want me to do about it?" I LOVE NYS!!!  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #74)

Anyone having problems collecting child support?

Right you are, Mom. I spent years trying to get the courts to help. You're better off (at least I was) to work your butt off and give those boys all you can... not material things, but the work ethic that is so horribly lacking in our young. My boys are 22 and 24 now, have ZERO respect for their Dad and are doing well for themselves! I wish you luck and will remember you in my prayers.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #73)

My original comment to Hans had nothing to do with winning, losing nor him Knowing his stuff. It had everything to do with the way he berrates and disrespects others and their opinions. I wont make a conclusion yet, but so far I've only seen one side of Hans. Also, I can't wait to see him back up a comment of any consequence with facts or sources. (I'll bet he does now, let's watch). I, too, enjoy "both" sides and educating myself on the issues at hand. Let's have some intellegent conversation and leave out the name calling. And yes, I did stoop to Hans's level and do some name calling... shame on me. My knees still ache from stooping so low. Thanks for the heads up! BTW, I've mentioned several times that I went to school with Obama... you'd think a leftie like Hans might be interested in that. Probably not, because I can fill in many of the facts "left" out of the Wikipedia Obama Bio.  (Jul 24, 2008 | post #254)
