President Obama spoke at Notre Dame University and called for understanding and dialogue in the abortion controversy. But how can there be "compromise" and "dialogue" with pro-abortion activist and Obama espousing breech birth abortions? Yea, just pull his little head out far enough to get the forceps at the base of the child's neck and snap his spine. Now that's some compromise.
"Former Vice President Dick Cheney is a war criminal. They need to keep Guantanamo prison open, so Cheney can be incarcerated there. Is America safer? Not until he's locked up."Joe M. Spitzer
What an asinine statement. Turn off the MSNBC "brainwashing" channel and start thinking like someone that loves America and stop acting like someone that thinks all of the world's problems are caused by us. You're weak with statements like that. I'm sure in your warped sense of reasoning that you can think of a plethora of reasons your right, but come on. Shouldn't we also house Bill Clinton there for the atrocities that he instructed our military to do? Killing innocent women and children with tomahawk missiles and blowing up infant formula plants to divert attention from the BJ he got from the pretty little fat girl! Now that's a "war crime!"
Your little poke fun at the Lauderdales "contribution" to the building of this "Opera" house is a little disturbing. I'm not certain of how much $10 in 1880 would be worth today but I do know that $10 a week salary in 1880 was a middle class income. $10 in 1880 was nothing to joke about. It was a lot of money. Today it may not seem like much but if you (we) could go back I'm sure the people back then would think it was a lot of money. Thank God for the foresight of such individuals (no matter how much they gave) to bring a little "culture" to or little river bank town.
Ah yes, Bill Gibbons, the "politician's" politician. He'll say whatever he thinks you want to hear now that the Governor's Mansion is in his sights. But I hadn't noticed, or more importantly, felt, this "embarrassment" that you spoke of when referring to Tennesseans being able (thanks to their state legislators) to exercise their "rights" under the US Constitution that allows them to keep and "bear" arms. Thank the gods that we here in Tennessee, have a legislative body with a spine. There are laws in place to deal with anyone that "gets out of line" and uses their firearm in a way that infringes on another person's "right" to life, Liberty and their pursuit of happiness.
Bill Gibbons for all of his "double speak" on any issue that seems to be somewhat "controversial" is abandoning all of his "right of the people" rhetoric that got him elected to the office of District Attorney. He's just becoming the politician that he's always dreamed of being. That's not to say that he wouldn't still be better than that progressive over spending governor that we have now.
"Right Wing" is not a "fringe" Well it might be to the"socialist fringe"! The one time Dick Cheney is actually "right" about something is now. (Notice I said "one time") Dick is a boob of the first order but he's right about this. Republicans should be the the party that promotes and "protects" their namesake Republic. The United States is not a "democracy" and only those that see socialism as their savior would think that. Colin Powell never should have even been allowed to call himself "republican". He has never espoused the beliefs of a "republican". He's in the same group of those that capitulated to the "democrats" like Arlen Spector, Orin Hatch and George Bush 41 and 43. If truly 21% of voting Americans are "republican" then I guess it wouldn't be the first time that those that are "right" are in the minority. Many times throughout history the masses have been led astray and this is one of those times. The majority of people thinking one particular way does not mean they are right. Let's not forget that a "majority" of Germans supported Hitler. Were they right? They "believed" they were but history has proven they were on the wrong side just as the "majority" will be in this case. History has a funny habit of repeating itself.
Isn't a "conservative democrat" an oxymoron?! Anyone that listens to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow like many would read their Bible before bedtime is a dangerously delusional person. The fact that Lincoln Davis is a "democrat" negates him from being a "conservative" about anything. You can't have it both ways. either you subscribe to a "socialist" mentality or yo9u don't.
Oh yea I forgot. Midtown Brown, the United States of America is a "Republic" not a democracy. I would suggest reading some of Aristotle's writings if you don't understand the difference. Oh, but Pablo would have you think that those writings (over 2000 years old!!!!) have no standing today, just go ahead with your thoughts. I've always heard that ignorance is bliss. But ignoring something that is so important to each and every one of us and our families, bliss is the last thing I would call it!
