|Nov-17-11|| ||I play the Fred: <Occupy Los Angeles protestors seek restraining order against police.>|
Why haven't serial killers ever thought of this?
|Nov-17-11|| ||diceman: < Jim Bartle: Gingrich resigned as both Speaker and Congressman for his district after the midterm disaster of 1998>|
Follow the bouncing ball.
Remember the good old days when Jim used to talk about Huckabee?
Palins voice and Trumps hair were the talk of the town, Perry, Cain, now
You’ll save so much time if you just wait for the nominee.
I realize you only have one god and pray in one church (Obama)
So this must be confusing for you, the whole idea of “thinking” about a candidate.
(realize that all this can be derailed at anytime by a Factor email)
ITS NOT A POULARTY CONTEST!!!
its has Jims full attention.

|Nov-18-11|| ||brankat: <al wazir> Very true. Couldn't have said it any better myself :-)|
|Nov-18-11|| ||Jim Bartle: Face it, diceman, Gingrich quit because the Republicans had a disastrous election in 1998 and they were ready to replace Gingrich as speaker.|
And diceman, honestly, why do you ask "Why can't we learn, embrace, understand?" when all you do is make repetitive attacks, largely fact-free, on those who disagree with you?
|Nov-18-11|| ||Petrosianic: That's exactly what happened. I don't know if it'll affect his nomination chances now, but it is what happened then.|
Pelosi presided over an even bigger disaster, yet the captain of the Titanic was nominated for another run. I'm not sure what that says about the state of politics in 2010 vs. 1998.
|Nov-18-11|| ||FSR: Gingrich is on his third marriage. He divorced twice and has admitted cheating on at least one wife. If you recall, he explained (during the present campaign) that he did so because he was working so hard on improving the country. He also served his first wife with divorce papers while she was in the hospital with cancer, then left her and their kids destitute. His soon to be ex-wife went on welfare. Your classic GOP family values. According to a Vanity Fair article some years back, he and one of his mistresses only had oral sex, so that if he was asked if they'd slept together, he could say no. Shades of "I have not had sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky."|

|Nov-18-11|| ||Petrosianic: We settled this in the 90's. Not only does sex not matter, but crimes committed in the name of covering up sex don't matter either. He may or may not get the nomination, but this probably won't affect it, as the bar has been lowered across the board. Everybody wants to lower it for their side but not the other, but it just doesn't work that way.|
|Nov-18-11|| ||cormier: <<<<Lk 19:45-48> Jesus entered the temple area and proceeded to drive out
those who were selling things, saying to them,
"It is written, My house shall be a house of prayer,
but you have made it a den of thieves.">
And every day he was teaching in the temple area.>
The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people, meanwhile,
were seeking to put him to death,
but they could find no way to accomplish their purpose
because all the people were hanging on his words.>
|Nov-18-11|| ||cormier: Tens of thousands of Islamists jammed Tahrir Square here Friday to protest attempts by Egypt's military rulers to hold onto power|
|Nov-18-11|| ||Zorts: al wazir <Anyone who refuses to use ignore...also wears a 'hair shirt', turns the thermostat down to 55, and lives on a diet of raw vegetables.>|
Hilarious! Do these 'hair shirts' really exist? Does anybody wear them; except for maybe Michael Behe, William Dembski, and ID promoters?
|Nov-18-11|| ||diceman: < Jim Bartle:
Too bad we can't learn, embrace, understand. Especially after diceman's attempts to reach out to us>
Obviously Jim you’ve never been a conservative around liberals,
reaching out could lose you an appendage.
<Colonel Mortimer: Taking out the Tea Party would do far more for world peace than taking out Iran.>
Liberals are always so very, very, nice.
<goldenbear:I must say <diceman> impresses me. He doesn't seem the least bit bothered by being attacked. I think it's admirable.>
Wow, it must have been BobCrisp, Patzer or Pinned Piece.
(we know how nice liberals are)
|Nov-18-11|| ||diceman: <A man who said he planned to firebomb Macy’s was arrested on Wednesday on charges of making terrorist threats, after a video of remarks he had made at an Occupy Wall street protest in Manhattan surfaced online. |
In the video, which the police showed at a briefing, the man, Nkrumah Tinsley, 29, spoke Tuesday outside Zuccotti Park and referred to Thursday, which protest organizers have planned as a day of demonstration. He said, “In a few days you’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s.”>
(if he hates the rich, why wouldn’t he choose Nordstrom’s)
Wow, firebomb Macys with a Molotov cocktail, that must be some of that
“reaching out” Jim B talks about.
Why cant conservatives be as kind and caring as liberals?
Such deep, deep, deep, thinkers,
changing the world, one threat at a time.
(remember when the Tea Party leveled JC Penny’s, that was fun)
|Nov-18-11|| ||diceman: <OWS Protesters Chant ‘Follow Those Kids!’ As Small Children Try To Go To School On Wall Street|
Tiny Tots, Some As Young As 4, Overwhelmed By Hostility, Crush Of Humanity>
Must be more of that “reaching out”, maybe the kids parents had jobs and were part of the evil capitalism?
People who work and make money, having children, both despicable, and insidious.

|Nov-18-11|| ||Petrosianic: How about a bottle in front of me?|
|Nov-18-11|| ||ControlledDemolition: <<Occupy Los Angeles protestors>>|
Did they ever protest the occupation of Los Angeles by Mexicans? Or did they just move to the suburbs?
|Nov-18-11|| ||FSR: <ControlledDemolition: <<Occupy Los Angeles protestors>>|
Did they ever protest the occupation of Los Angeles by Mexicans? Or did they just move to the suburbs?>
We stole California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Texas from Mexico. If the Mexicans try to steal them back, that's only fair.
|Nov-18-11|| ||Petrosianic: <We stole California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Texas from Mexico. If the Mexicans try to steal them back, that's only fair.>|
Actually, it's not, considering that they stole it from the Indians originally. If they later had it stolen from them, then THAT'S fair.
|Nov-18-11|| ||ControlledDemolition: <We stole California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Texas from Mexico.>|
More exactly, you fought and won them. Question is, why aren't you prepared to fight for them now?
|Nov-18-11|| ||ControlledDemolition: <Thyt are non violent and leaderless on purpose., but just as Bradley Manning started the Arab Spring>|
Whatever happened to poor old <Julian Assange>? Is he persona non grata? I note that he's only merited a couple of mentions on <cg.com> in the past 6 months. Last year, he and the BP oil spill were all the rage. Excuse me if I don't take the <Occupy> protests remotely seriously.
|Nov-18-11|| ||Petrosianic: <More exactly, you fought and won them. Question is, why aren't you prepared to fight for them now?>|
"You" is an equivocation. In the first usage, it refers to "19th century America", and in the second it refers to FSR personally. This creates the impression that FSR has switched positions, when he probably hasn't.
The bit about "fought for them" is a little misleading too. If I fight you for your wallet, and you don't want to fight for your wallet, you just want to be left alone, then it's misleading to say I "won" it from you. Under those circumstances, I stole it.
But I'd still go back to the first point, as it illustrates a subtle kind of racism pervasive today. The inhabitants of Mexico stole the land from the Indians. Those Conquistador people, they conquisted it from the indigenous peoples. But we rarely hold that against them like we do the US, almost as if we're thinking at the back of our minds "Oh, you can't expect THOSE people to understand the same high standards we do." The right wing gets annoyed about the double standard, but really Hispanics should be even more annoyed.
|Nov-18-11|| ||ControlledDemolition: Here's what happens when you take the protests remotely seriously.|
I saw a list of the 5000+ books supposedly trashcanned. It included <Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism> by <Sean Hannity>.
