Can we talk?
Submitted by Newsbubba on Sat, 11/05/2011 - 10:04am.
Can we ever! In fact, that's all Congress and the president seem to do. Yack, yack, yack.
Doesn't anybody want to DO something anymore.

I saw this headline and then came here and saw your comment, figured this fits in. Not nicely, but annoyingly apt.
GOP ready to talk taxes?
On one hand, I fervently hope that nothing happens and there are no tax increases, but hell, I don't trust Boehner and Cantor, especially after Boehner went golfing with DuhOne(traitorous move in my opinion) and then that conversation Boehner had with Rush about it (had a bit of dead air to it with Rush not saying anything, that's when you knew he didn't think it was a good thing) and his actions since then, including giving up on repealing SoetoroCare.
Maybe this country does need a civil war, you got a bunch of anarchists on one side threatening the sanctity of this country who are backed by the bogus potus himself, while on the other side, you have Republicans who in large part were voted in to do their job and are apparently refusing to do so, which will also lead to threatening the sanctity of this country, and you still have the dems, trying like hell in the House, but succeeding in the Senate to run this country into the ground.
And that's not counting the growing Islamic threat to this country. Did I leave anything out?

If I weren't such an optimistic, happy person, I could get downright depressed, but as long as there is Happy Hour in this town, I'm good to go.
The "can we talk" opener reminded me of one of my favorite MCP jokes from a long time ago, and it still seems to fit. The guy is trying to crawl his date's bones, and she looks at him and asks Alan Alders favorite line, "Can't we just talk?" The guy looks at her and says; "Talk. Talk. Talk. Doesn't anybody want to have sex (or something like that) anymore?!?"
I say it's time for conservatives in Congress to just shut up and put the wood to the liberals in BOTH parties. We're going to talk, talk, talk our way into a depression or worse. The anarchists are just circling like a pack of vultures to step in and cause a revolution. The Chinese are laughing their asses off at what a pack or fools we are! All they have to do is just wait it out, and they'll own us without firing a shot. The good news is, they know how to deal with anarchists when they do take over.
The funniest part is Big Sis and Bambi's Homeland Gestapo are more worried about blogs like this that they are the crazy mofo's in the OWC "demonstrations." Those are "their people."

Hell, bubba, I thought the Chinese allready owned us!!! And it looks like they might acquire Europe too............and you're right about the way they treat anarchists and moooooooooooooooooooooslems - so these OWC people are gonna be in for a big surprise when they think that they've finally got what they wanted.
And Big Sis Incompetano DID say that 'we' are more dangerous than terrorists - as long as we're white, right?? So it's no surprise that she's tracking the websites and blogs and that sort of thing.
One good thing...........I've been to China..........they've got beautiful women over there, and they seem to like western men!!!
Of course, I'm sure they'd change their mnds if they met some stinky, dopey, spaced-out, irresponsible, derelict, gimme something type of guys that seem to be a growing part of our population..................the Chinese value work and responsibility, and they also value thrift and financial eptitude (is that a word??).

I LIKE that, Killa! You're a regular wordsmith, dude.
Can't remember the movie, but some drill sergeant was explaining to the troops about unexploded ordinance lying around and said that most of it was inert, but some of it could be "ert" so to be careful. I still use that word. Now you've given me a new one!

I didn't surf.........the weather is really crappy here - torrential rain, lightning, thunder, rivers on the verge of closing the road to Hanalei, dirty ocean water, small surf.............so I came home, and didn't have any power either until a few minutes ago.

Actually, Doc............I can picture a cadre of dope-smoking, dirty, stinky, maggot-infested OWS 'anarchists' - all lined up in a row on girls bicycles - dressed up like Boy Barry when he's out riding...............pumping away on the pedals with big spliffs hanging out of their scruffy mouths, sending a continuous stream of electricity to the shredders so that they can destroy all of these Solyndra, Fast and Furious, and multiple other documents.............maybe they'd be getting paid in Starbucks coffee and their crappy baked goods.

I am pretty pissed about Obama denying the House committee the documents on Solyndra. We are never going to get to the bottom of this just like we'll never get to the bottom of Fast and Furious. Most transparent administration EVAH!!

I neither mourn nor cheer the passing of Andy Rooney. I only listened to him for brief periods and never thought he was all that wise. I have friends that always tell me that he spoke out against the wrongs done in society and politics.
If he was so brave to speak out, why did he not condemn his own show, which had long since ceased being a true investigative reporter show and more like a dirt digging arm of the DNC? I guess being in power is better than speaking truth to it.

From what I've read about this, he's wrong about his reaction to this whole thing, saying he'll turn his back, he won't stand and etc for National Anthem and etc. He's directing his ire at the wrong people and that should be the bogus potus and his henchmen Janet.(yeah, I said henchMEN) By his reaction, he's turning his back on the American people that are victim to this dictatorship.
I can understand WHY he'd be angry at the results, but again, from what I've ready, he handled the lawsuit case the wrong way or something, and it's not the first time he's got something screwed up.
Ventura, you're rejecting the American people, they aren't the ones who are behind these despots in the WH who are in control of the TSA courtesy of the DHS. You're also rejecting the Constitution which has been pretty much shredded by those same people. Yes, that same thing you swore to protect when you were a Navy SEAL. The sooner you realize that, the sooner you might be able to be part of the solution instead of the problem by virtue of your actions.

He's really not trying to hide that Muslim side of him anymore, especially opposing all things Christian(even if he invoked God as opposed to Allah when talking about the jobs bill*snicker*). Not to mention things that were seen as victories of our historical battles including WW2(after all, he tried to apologize for Hiroshima).
I've been talking to some people at work, including some that voted for this reprobate and even though Texas voted for McCain, they are sorry they cast their ballot for the big-eared wonder. I even asked about the Muslim side of him and a couple of the people I talked to agreed, he's a Muslim more than he's a Christian(in acting) and even his actions show that.
Too bad the spineless Republicans won't take action against this dictator. I've never seen a bigger bunch of wimps....except for the Texas Republicans who didn't try to fight against the TSA in Texas. WIMPS!!!

I posted the same thing below before I read yours. I was so pissed when I first saw the story. Jon I thought the same thing about Ear Leader. I don't know of any Christian that can cite the Muslim call to prayer. He seemed to know it very well.

I knew when I first read that piece that it would light a fire under a few of us here.
Here's a link....my mother still remembers this, she was at the Wright Aeronautical factory...and couldn't believe this was happening as she listened to FDR on the radio (hard to fathom no instantaneous information, isn't it?).
My Fellow Americans:
Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our Allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.
And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:
Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.
Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.
They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.
They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest -- until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men's souls will be shaken with the violences of war.
For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.
Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.
And for us at home -- fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas, whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them -- help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.
Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.
Give us strength, too -- strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces.
And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.
And, O Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in Thee; faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keeness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment -- let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.
With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogances. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace -- a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.
Thy will be done, Almighty God.

Isn't FDR supposed to be the big Kahuna of the Dim party? Beloved forever? How do the dims reconcile this -- the fact that o'bama is purposely dissing FDR? They have to make a decision, here -- do they abandon FDRs mythical figure to appease their new god, o'bama? Or do they finally come to their senses, and realize that o'bama is trying to fundamentally change America -- and one way of doing this is by erasing history? I'll bet the MSM is looking for ways of minimizing their exposure to this little decision, aren't they?

There's a difference, FDR, while he did the things he did, was still an American. And that American sided with Winston Churchill, the man whose bust was sent back, who was British. A Brit who was part of the Great Britain Empire that once upon a time considered Kenya(and others) part of its empire, to which Barack Obama Senior was a subject of with much bitterness.
Remember, this bogus potus is all about damaging or severing our alliances with US-Friendly countries. including apologizing to the world for us and trying to bring our level of superiority down as much as possible, including the prayer of FDR not being allowed or whatever.
Anyone who's familiar with WW2 history could take it further about how the Nazis sided with the Islam Jihadists in the Middle East, enemy of my enemy is my friend, etc but that's a looser connection to the big eared wonder.
It all comes to his being a Muslim. That's his first love. That's his life, what he grew up on in Indonesia while surrounded by the Commies like his mother and Ayers and etc. That comes before ANYTHING else even his family. From here on out, his actions that he takes or will take will reflect ties to his Muslim background. After all, he's not even trying to hide it anymore.

Thanks, BK, for supplying a working link.
Anyone notice something that's been inserted sideways into several of these OWS reports? "They aren't reporting crimes to the police". And just as interesting -- the MSM isn't pursuing this at all. Why? So that everyone can pretend that these are "peaceful people", of course. We all know they aren't. But yet -- the MSM keeps insisting that crime is virtually not present at these staged events.
BTW, these OWS conditions also invalidate a favorite liberal theme -- that if we don't prosecute illegals, then they will report crimes to the police. The OWS experience shows that this linkage doesn't hold water.
