The Romney-Obama debate of 10-16 was a bit of a snoozer for me.

I disliked the Town Hall set up and Candy Crowley.  She wasn’t extremely partial but like most CNN people, she had a special place in her heart for Obama.  That is probably why she gave him an extra three minutes for the night.

First we get a liberal in Jim Lehrer for the first debate but at 78 he was no match for handling Romney and Obama so it went well.

This time we got Candy who, instead of asking the questions and getting the hell out of the way, felt she had to interject her own opinions into the fray.   Like, who cares what she thinks?

Candy, Barack, and Mitt. Who is squeezing 
the hardest?
Both guys got in some decent licks.  For Romney it was pretty easy pickings as he only had to pick a few items from a large laundry list of Obama failings from his 2008 promises.

For Obama, he managed a dig at Romney’s Detroit comment about letting Detroit autos go bankrupt and got after him about outsourcing.

Obama also couldn’t resist getting in the obligatory 47% crack during his summation but Romney beat him to the punch as he mentioned it during his summation a couple minutes before when he said it was sad that 47% of Americans are on food stamps.  I thought that was a good move and a miss on Obama’s part.  Actually, Obama should have mentioned it in Denver but he didn’t mention much of anything else that night either.

One funny point that kind of diminished Obama:  On a couple of occasions, he followed Romney’s moves.  At one time, Romney got up from his chair and Obama followed.  Another time, they were standing next to each other when Romney took about four steps forward.  Like a good puppy, Obama followed again. 

Both instances may be more subliminal than anything but it came across as kind of odd to me.

There was a lot of bantering but not much new since the Denver debacle.  If I had to give the debate a score, I would say it was about 50-50.  Romney was about as good as the first debate in Denver but Obama improved enough that at least he didn’t look half asleep this time around.

I doubt if the prez will gain any ground from this round.  Romney matched up good with him at a time when Obama needed a knockout.

Next comes the third and final debate; this time from Boca Raton, Florida.  It will be Bob Schieffer of CBS moderating and the format will be the same as Denver.  Foreign policy will be dominate so expect some fireworks since the mere mention of Libya got some blood flowing tonight.

No word yet on whether Hillary will be there since she has taken the fall for Libya hence being dispatched to Peru.  How would you like to be a mouse in Bill’s house and hear his reaction to that move?

I watched some of the debate (confession: I preferred watching The Mentalist on TNT), enough to glean that it was more spirited than the first one (when Obama was kind of asleep). I thought they both did a good job despite a few talking-over-each-other sections. I watched the whole VP debate, and I was utterly revolted by Biden's crass, vulgar approach to 'debating.' I though Ryan was classy and had a lot to say, and knew his factrs. Some of his responses put several of my qualms away. Ditto Mitt last night. I was totally on the fence before the debates (after all, I am a blue-state New England gal at heart), but I sent in my early ballot and voted for Romney (also voted for Sheriif Joe).

PS I have a new job for 3-4 months as a contractor back at you-know-where doing technical writing to create training material. So far so good!

I haven't watched the debate yet, but did watch a video this morning that the superrich, the top .01 percent of 8 percent of the wealth in the world and are creating a plutocracy resembling communism. I think they're digging their own graves, because there are people running this nation, more powerful than any President who will kill them just because they can. This is a war between the elite and we are all caught in the middle. Even China has the superrich now and they're COMMUNISTS! It's a sick, sick world and the rich all need to be spanked and sent to their rooms.

Rick Kepple said...

"the top .01 percent OWN (not "of")"

proud said...

By virtue of his terrible first debate, Obama had to look good. His performance can only be described as most improved, not a winning one as Romney hammered him repeatedly pointing out the failures in his promises and his policies. Obama got in a few outright lies, but he had absolutely no defense for his failed policies except to remind people that things could be worse.

Given four more years, I am sure this idealistic, dream world, teleprompter reader, could indeed, make things far worse....

Don Williams said...

Something in the neighborhood of 61% of annual Federal spending is fixed by law. I. E. Soc. Sec. Medicare, Medicaid and interest on the Federal debt. I see little difference between Obama and Romney to address anything of significance regarding how annual deficits and the growing debt will be addressed, so find both to be a dissapoinint in that regard.

My vote like in 2008 will go to Obama for the same reason I voted for him back then. A major concern over the Republican candidate for VP. Sarah Palin was too extreme as is Ryan today. During his time in Congress Ryan has voted NO 58 times on legislation addressing work and health issues of importance to women. Additionally Romney said he'd end Federal support for Planned Parenthood.

Next month my vote on behalf of women goes to Obama.

Jim McAllister said...

from uremus

I tend to agree with you on the balance of your assessment.....but I wonder how many agree with me that Obama appeared almost frenetic in his attempt at

"controlled aggression", and came across as almost desperate............but, he definitely appeared more angry than purposeful, almost from the first question. Mitt did not seem to be angry during his disagreements, but was insistant

Don Williams said...

Sory for the misspelling of the word disapointment in my earlier post. Probably as I'm so disgusted dating back over the past 11 years that neither party is truly addressing the deficit's and associated debt it leaves the country.

Grover Norquist is a major part of that failure.......

Rick Kepple said...

Watching the debate now on Youtube. Both Obama and Romney wants energy independence and the governor is right, and so is Obama.

If you look at a global map, you'll see a startling revelation that the countries that are collapsing all have oil and/or ports to ship that oil from. It is very possible that Russia, China and the U.S. are vying for that oil to divide up the world in preparation of global governance in 2025. That's why they need the pipeline from Canada to make the dirtiest oil in the world into gas, because there is a remote chance we could have a trade embargo put on the U.S. sometime in the future.

Now I talked to some folks this morning and it was a hoot and I can't tell you who it was, but I can say that Romney is very right in some respects regarding energy independence and national security. In 2025, the United States must be in a position to assume control of leadership on the world stage. Either that, or learn to speak Chinese.

Rick Kepple said...

Mitt Romney says that his tax changes will continue the top 5 percent of the richest people paying 60 percent of the taxes, while giving a tax cut to the middle class to create more jobs. His math doesn't add up.

If you create more jobs, more people will be paying more taxes. Add up all those taxes paid in by 12.5 jobs that he's proposing and the 5 percent of the richest of Americans would pay less of the entire taxes collected and it should return to Reagan's percentages when those people only paid in 45 percent of the taxes. Not 60 percent.

midnightsstaff said...

Way to go Gloria.. hope your indomitable persistence pays off.. I like your style.

don.. want to make some easy money?- I am covering any bet you might want to offer.. hurry the election will be over in less than three weeks and your opportunity will disappear..
lunch?, coffee, a thousand dollars greenback?- your pick.

take it.

Glo said...

Thanks, Middy! Ever since I was kicked to the curb by 'that company' (they left home without me...) I've lived my life as an employment ping-pong ball. But that's life! Better intermittant jobs than no job a-tall! :)

midnightsstaff said...

Hey, I did it for years... being in the commercial construction industry I probably had five or six jobs in any given year, a two to six month project was considered long term..

I ended up in 1994 broke, out of work and having to rehab for over a year after having kidney surgery.

But I as you do believed in myself and frankly once I made an earlier decision not to allow either others or bad fortune to take my happiness I have never had a really miserable experience even tho I wasn't doing what I thought I was capable of I still had my faith in myself to fall back on..

..maybe with your experiences you should be doing motivational work for others facing what you have already conquered- inspiration is a growing, necessary and lucrative industry,
you are obviously smart enough to make intelligent decisions.

Sometimes we need to think outside the box to succeed, but that makes it all the more sweet when success follows.

Nothing I have ever found gives a parent more satisfaction as to see their own kids approach problems not as children looking for someone to help, but able to go out and do things with confidence, despite the odds the world presents.

In that regard I consider my life a success, sure it could have been better but after all it was me calling the shots, making mistakes and continuing on..

But even in the darkest days I never considered myself as anything but unbelievably fortunate to have an opportunity to make something of my life- after all, I have seen abject poverty including people digging through trash dumps looking for something to eat for dinner.

..just try moving past your caste in India.

midnightsstaff said...

330 electoral votes to President Romney..

take it to the bank.

Glo said...

Yes, Middy: you can't change other people's actions - you can only control your reaction to and behavior regarding said actions. I grew up in public housing with a single mom and pretty much no real money. She was determined I wouldn't have such a hard life and propelled me into higher education. I started working 36 years ago and ever since PAYCHECK ONE I have been saving and living within my means. That gave me the foundation to be able to weather my layoff and move forward. If I've learned one thing from that upending of my life three years ago it's that you can only roll with the tide, do your best, and don't count on anyone except yourself. whn I lost a position lasy year, I went ahead and created a side business called Wordsmithinh by Glo: I revised resumes and any other documents for people, and have a small but growing clientele. Not much money, but what I make I put away for my Big 6-0 birthday vacation trip for next September.

Life is good - you need to make the best of it and see it as a win when you wake up in the morning (in my case, with two crazy dogs slobbering all over Mom's face).

Glo, Master Wordsmither! :) said...

Sorry for the typos, LOL! I type too fast and my mind doesn't always catch up with my nimble fingers.

Jim McAllister said...


To paraphrase Jimmy Cagney in "Yankee Doodle Dandy":

"My mother thanks you, my father thanks you, my sister thanks you, Sheriff Joe thanks you, Mr. Romney thanks you, and I thank you."

I have always had the highest respect for you and you reinforced that with your votes.

As always, it looks like you landed on your feet again with your new job. Even if it ends after 3-4 months, it's another example of how you refuse to cry in your beer and are able to turn a lemon into lemonade.

It's that that never say die Yankee ingenuity.

Jim McAllister said...


Absolutely. How could he not improve over the first debate? I think with that gigantic ego of his he didn't feel he had to prepare the first time. Big mistake!

So, now he comes out and does a decent job and the libs are convinced he crushed Romney (see Andrew Sullivan).

The observers that count look at it as a virtual tie and I agree. They are making too big a deal over the "terror" remark and the review of the transcript by Crowley. Sure, she leaned toward O, that's what people at CNN, MSNBC, and most of the others love to do.

As Desi would say: "Obama has a lot of splainin' to do" on Monday when they get into foreign policy, especially Libya. I want to hear him explain why his UN ambassador Rice was saying for a week that the YouTube was the reasoning for Libya. He escaped on that last night thanks to Crowley.

I read where Michelle was clapping throughout the debate even though quiet was asked of the audience. Come on, now! Michelle was rude? She is so classy; who would have thought? LOL

Jim McAllister said...


You're a unique guy. I don't know anyone who votes for a president based on the vice president.

You don't like Palin or Ryan but you think Biden is better?

Besides having emotional problems, he is a two time plagiarist. Oh, well.

Jim McAllister said...


I agree. Obama was on a mission to improve from the first debate. It was a must for him and he did seem angry and aggressive.

He is a tough guy to listen to in the sense that he stumbles over words, hesitates a lot, and would be in big trouble if he couldn't use his hands.

To me that is a sign of nervousness which he had plenty of reason to be. If he flopped last night, he would have been in real trouble.

When considering he has no record to run on, he hung in pretty good; at least as far as his followers were concerned.

Jim McAllister said...


It's going to be an interesting 13 years until 2025. If I live that long, I'll be 84 and probably be drooling anyway. LOL

Jim McAllister said...


I hope that 330 is right!

Jim McAllister said...


I love your attitude.

My best to your pooches.

midnightsstaff said...

Hahaha... so now you are smarter than a CEO Jimmy?.. yeah what President Romney did was to get the amateur to position himself on camera the Libyan debacle he engineered... the fool has no idea the trap a real visionary has set for next weeks wrap up..
How many times do you think he has had to put up with this type of arrested adolescence in his twenty five years of observing humanity?- Corporate boardrooms are filled with liars, cheats and scoundrels, remember?

It's a simple trick honest men use all the time, get someone caught in a state of cognitive dissonance in public allowing them to testify against and thereby condemning themselves.. he knows what he is doing..

Shooting fish in a barrel is more sporting than making that lifelong amateur come back and explain the inexplicable thinking behind arresting an innocent, lying to the public, suspending a scapegoats first amendment rights and using him as an international bargaining token in support of Sharia Law.

..that was a one hundred percent re election campaign decision- and a very stupid, ill advised one... it's typical of the panic that sets in when you have tried and failed to fake a kidnapping just to set up another Bin Laden moment, intending to fake a rescue but having it go terribly wrong .

.. yeah this is a real fish the President has on a line- and he will set that hook next debate so deep a couple of teeth will have to be removed.

They will need the jaws of life to pull Zero's head out of where President Romney places it next Monday night.

Stealth said...

I watched the debate and Obama, although improved from his coma in the first debate, was just as pathetic in this debate as he has been as president.

He has absolutely NO RECORD to run on. He tried and failed to paint Romney as the boogeyman to women.

Candy Crowley should have been standing on the stage with Obama since this debate was two-on-one.

And Candy Crowley not only allowed Obama's flagrant lie about his remarks on Libya, she actually participated in the lie. And today, she's on spin control trying to put out the fires she started with her biased approach to "moderator."

And please, Don Williams, vote on behalf of yourself (your vote for VP, that is). You don't vote on behalf of me or any of the intelligent and conservative women I know who understand that the issues this election are the economy and foreign affairs (yes, the muslim extremists still hate us and are trying to kill us). The women I know are overwhelmingly voting for ROMNEY/RYAN and don't buy the fabricated liberal "war on women."

I'm voting with my lady SMARTS, not my lady parts...on behalf of myself, no one else.

midnightsstaff said...

So I guess you are a definite Romney vote eh?

midnightsstaff said...

.."The more we learn the more we see how both dishonest and incompetent has been the handling of this entire incident. The Obama White House may be out spinning the press to buy into the Obama-Crowley line, but no one is buying it. As the rest of the information comes to light, the president retains less and less credibility. Like a fish on a line he flops this way and that, trying to break free of his self-created trap"

Houston.... we got a problem!

Holy moly..
I am looking prescient, and others are taking note...

Glo, Burping said...

Dear Jim,

I don't drink beer: I cry in my Manischewitz elderberry wine ... hiccup ....

proud said...

Trying to figure out if Don is a partisan hack?....or has gender identity issues?
Either way, after reading his incohereant logic..... he is casting his precious vote for ALL THE WRONG REASONS!

Face it Don, you, in an effort to show what a good, unprejudiced person you were, voted for an inexperienced ideologue who has bungled just about everything he's touched. Amazingly, given the actual record of the past 4 years, people like you would rather give this fK-up another four years to further ruin this once fine nation, than admit you were simply an old fool!....Nice going Don, that's the kinda spirit that made this nation great!

Glo said...

Don, I had concerns about Paul Ryan because of his stringent beliefs and political bent, but upon listening to him and considering how he addressed the questions, I feel better about him and am willing to give him a chance. Biden, however, was a gibbering whackjob of a babboon and utterly appalled me in the debate: this guy's a heartbeat away from the presindency? Yikes! VERY scary!

Proud, I voted for Obama in 2008 because McCain made such a stunningly massive faux pas in getting Palin on the ticket. I truly believe he did it simply to get a woman on the ticket, and that is so wrong and says something about him (Palin says it all about herself just by opening her mouth). Would it be nice to have a woman on the ticket? Yeah - but the RIGHT one.

steve buzzardo said...

"Next month my vote on behalf of women goes to Obama".

Im sure the Red Menace will be very happy to hear that.

proud said...

Glo...I voted for McCain and I hated myself for doing so, he's a typical Washington insider who pretended to be some kind of "Maverick" by hosing his own people, usually at the last minute, mostly for nothing more than showmanship.....To me he's a fat, old white-guy (lump-jawed) who represents the stereo-typical politician... Picking a VP to pander to some certain group is nothing new, in fact, it's business as usual. Kennedy hated Johnson but he needed him to bring the "good-ol boy,South" to a spoiled, Mass lib, daddy promised me or Joe we could be Prez, blue-blood, aristocratic, rich kid....
I actually voted (holding my nose the entire time for McCain because of Palin. To me she was the incarnation of everything McCain was not. She was small town, hard working, average American valued newbie (and wasn't Ol Abe, just that?). In an era where an Obama government is spending trillions they don't have....breaking almost every promise they campaigned on, suing about half the country simply for asking voters to prove they are who they claim to be...I see Palin as far more main stream than the teleprompter in chief that's f/n up the country. Seems to me you allowed yourself to swallow a bit too much of the anti Palin kool-aid they so freely spewed (and continue to spew) She, (and that ridiculous excuse of a lard ass running mate McCain) allowed herself to be completely defined by the liberal mainstream media as extreme...all the while they somehow convinced mid_America that a cocaine smoking, binge drinking, lazy,(his own words) student (who refuses to this day to release his college records)with but two years national Senate service,(all but a couple months of which were spent campaigning for Pres) which included a record number of "present" votes, who surrounded himself with under-qualified, ideologues who are fast-tracking this nation into socialistic main-stream / moderate....

I honestly believe we don't need Rhodes scholars, or Harvard lawyers in the White House, I'll take an old fashioned, American gal from Alaska over the crap we have now! And if being the one and only guy in congress with the balls to stand up and purpose a written idea on how to head off the fiscal cliff, the bankruptcy of medicare/caid and social security makes Ryan too extreme for you....You better reexamine what's really important to the survival of this nation.....(*hint* sure as hell ain't women's ability to get free contraceptives, or some illegal's need for driver licenses, food stamps, or freedom for being asked to prove they aren't BREAKING THE LAW!

Rick Kepple said...

"It's going to be an interesting 13 years until 2025. If I live that long, I'll be 84 and probably be drooling anyway. LOL"

The dreaded drooling years.

That Fender guitar plays great! Took it to Dell Mack's and hung out all afternoon. The radio is playing the songs, "Big Foot" and "Love for the Weekend," recorded at the studio. I've been bitching that I want those products out the door and they need to be making money! If there are million dollar songs, they ain't doing no good on a harddrive.

If Romney's gonna be elected, now is the time to get going on this music stuff! People need inspiration and I plan to sell it to them!

sam said...

Glo....the positions of President and Vice President are both administrative positions, requiring some level of leadership and supervisory ability, with a background of proven effective leadership and organization.
McCain's record in the Navy dispelled his often repeated "experience and leadership" claims, and while his experience as a POW deserves acclaim, it does little to qualify him to head a major nation.
You were not alone in questioning the selection of Palin...but, here again, she had a several year record of heading the management of a State, which record provided ample documented proof of her effectiveness in leadership, planning, and decision making, while proving her educated and purposeful decisions in making appointments and in negotiations with various enterprises which positively advanced the enterprise, the State, and the public interests in Alaska and the US.
I also had serious problems with McCain, but, with all his faults (as I saw them) he still stood head and shoulders above Obama as to qualifications and experience.
Can you say the same for either Obama or Biden?

Jim McAllister said...


You're very confident and I hope you are right. I think Romney will nail him on Libya. He has already proven to America the guy has no record to tun on.

I see where Michelle is already talking about how they are going to party hard on November 7 after Barack wins.

She is as dumb as a post.

Jim McAllister said...


You're right; the guy has no record to run on.

His comment about creating 5 million jobs was bull because there have been 5 million lost jobs.

It's the same with several of his other pronouncements. he is full of sh-t and he is simply playing with the numbers.

I hope Romney has both barrels loaded on foreign affairs especially Libya.

Jim McAllister said...


Manischewitz, Mogen David, Lancers, Mateus, Oy! It's all good already!

Jim McAllister said...


I love that title "The Red Menace."
Was that Middy's idea? He is good with nicknames.

She is definitely a menace and one who is a phony two faced hack.

Jim McAllister said...

Proud, Sam.

I too voted for McCain while I held my nose.

I thought Palin got a raw deal from the voters. Don Williams bashed her so bad in '08 that I asked him if she was one of the many women who had turned him down for a date. He was merciless.

If she had run for president, I would have voted for her any day over Obama. As most of us knew at the time, this country got exactly what they bargained for with him.

Now is our chance to right that wrong.

Rick Kepple said...

"Now is our chance to right that wrong."

Right and wrong. It doesn't exist in politics.

The strategy of using Obama has worked to win some Muslims to the American way of thinking and many of al Qaeda's leadership is dead, but radical Islam is toying with chemical weapons.

Why do you think al Qaeda is trying to help overthrow Syria? Out of the goodness of their hearts? They have the largest stockpile of chemical weapons in the world! Al Qaeda is also seeking to make ricin and the Pentagon is taking this very seriously.

Romney wants to ease immigration laws to increase profitability of American companies by hiring immigrants instead of Americans. Or bring foreign students to American universities to teach or learn. Hire immigrants as VA staff to help American military veterans.

I'm told that the Columbia VA hospital has an Iranian shrink talking to veterans and some of them worked in highly classified jobs and the government can't figure out how our enemies are stealing our secrets. Duh.

Right and wrong? I don't believe Washington D.C. knows what that is. Maybe when Romney gets elected, the Mormon Church can explain it to them.

ArizonaDave said...

Pretty sad evening in my mind; in fact, I don't even watch debates, but after hearing later that Obama stated he talked terror on the first day...he really didn't.... just in general terms that the USA wouldn't tolerate terror, but then jumped on the bandwagon that the film was the primary problem for the protests and ultimate deaths of the 4 Americans....

Where does this guy's thinking come from...maybe re-election priorities...and then the fat lady sings by saying he's right.

What a farce....I'm early voting today..Guess who for????

midnightsstaff said...

Pat Paulson??

dark horse..

Steve/DG said...

Don's vote on "Behalf of WOmen". It truly is the most simple of the populace that is easily lured by false propaganda.

Amazing. My 18 year old daughter is voting on behalf of the American Dream, and it's not Obama.

Commrade Putin will also appreciate your vote, Don. And it's just that, it's your vote, and you're entitled to it.

But if you think you're some warrior for women's rights, you definately have a false sense of an extremely inflated ego... though most far left liberals do.

midnightsstaff said...

Well the worm has turned, looks like the John Candy in drag moderator actually was the final straw as to media cheer leading..
People are waking up to the fact that these zombie reporters have jumped the shark the other night with that ridiculous interjection that Zero00 was wrong about the terrorism charge in the Rose Garden... and President Romney was correct.

..It's bad enough to cut President Romney off in mid point but to lie on national tv about the seminal point of his argument signals the fat lady is singing loud and clear.. 51/45 Romney at Gallup backs my claim.

We are looking forward to the largest mandate in recent history..
and thank God.

and no Paula... Sandra Fluke has quit rockin' if she ever did.. it's just like all the other phony, despicable causes they have tried and failed at..

midnightsstaff said...

too early.. I meant Zero000 was wrong and she said he was right.. but you know what I meant..

Jim McAllister said...

AZ Dave,

There will be more details on Monday night that should expose Obama and his YouTube belief. I want to hear from him why his UN rep Rice was saying the YouTube video was the cause of Libya. What a bunch of BS.

Another liberal will be moderating (Bob Shieffer, CBS) but hopefully he will be pushed around like Lehrer was and Mitt won't be cut short.

The moderators are so damn partial toward Obama I'm surprise Mitt even gets to talk. Obama has got considerably more time from both of them.

Jim McAllister said...


The funny thing about Paulsen's campaign with the Smothers Brothers was that a lot of people actually believed he WAS running.

I loved his line: "If nominated I will not run; if elected I will not serve."

We must never underestimate the stupidity of a large part of the public. I think Obama and his wife are good examples of that.

Rick Kepple said...

Coincidentally, after I began to write about the rock star again, that CEO stopped all his promises of helping me and Dell's studio. Hanging out with a rich guy to learn to be like them? Why? It doesn't take many brains to exploit people for money.

It will be nice to have good, decent religious people in the White House once Romney and Ryan get elected. Good ol' American values. Put prayer back in schools. Get rid of hard drugs in mainstream entertainment, because it's setting a bad example for the general public and is used to enslave those celebrities so they do what they're told.

Cocaine is only to be used by our enemies and for paying for illegal weapons sales, again to kill our enemies. Romney and Ryan can do this. We can kill or imprison all the scum and help the decent folks.

We can return to the decency in this country that we once had during the Cold War days.

Jim McAllister said...


Don is 70 years old and still dating. At that age one ceases to worry about looks and starts becoming more concerned about whether there is a pulse.

I can understand his position on women (no pun intended). My high powered blog goes out to millions of people 24 hours a day and if a guy has a shot at meeting someone through it, I feel like I have provided a service.

Therefore, I support his comment since it may scare up a few dates. What the hell? No harm done. Besides Michelle may have a hot sister.

Jim McAllister said...


John Candy in drag? LOL Good one! Crowley did resemble him. I miss 'ol Uncle Buck. He died way too soon at 43.

The funny thing was that she admitted before the broadcast that she planned on being more than a microphone holder during the debate. It was despicable how she took sides for Obama.

I see this morning where Eugene Robinson in his never ending love for Obama says O swept the debate. What an idiot; even some of the most liberal reporters said it was basically a draw and would have been a route without Crowley.

Hopefully Schieffer will doze off on Monday and these guys battle it out.

Stealth said...

Thanks, Middy, it will now be hard for me to watch the perpetual reruns of Crowley's gaffes without thinking I'm watching SNL. John Candy in drag....HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

steve buzzardo said...

CNN covers its rear: Obama got more time to speak because he "speaks more slowly"

that is funny, maybe its because he's an idiot and he needs a telepromter.

Rick Kepple said...

Wouldn't it be funny if that crazy ass rock star had a verbal contract with me and I don't remember it? That sounds like something a woman would do, doesn't it?

That's why we don't need a woman President. She'd be bitching all the time, making lists of things to do, nag, nag, nag all the damn time. Making verbal contracts with disabled people who have bad memories about it.

Do you suppose the woman brags to her friends how she screwed a disabled dude over? I've met pricks like that, you know.

It's kind of funny that I've been working my ass off and suddenly rich people want in on the music studio when it is starting to show promise. I'll just walk away and let Dell get rich. I want nothing to do with those snobby people.

All rich people are the same. But we need Romney. But I don't have to like him.

steve buzzardo said...

Mark R. Levin --
Andrea Mitchell agrees: men paid more than women at MSLSD...

Romney Spokesperson Mocks MSNBC For Paying Men More Than Women, Andrea Mitchell Agrees

maybe its because the women at MSNBC are so ugly, like Rachel Madcow

Rick Kepple said...

Hey, Dell Mack has a neighbor, and I guess I knew him back when I was 18. He knew Tiny (seven foot five dude) and other stuff that I barely remember except for glimpses. It was seriously depressing to learn about those days and how I don't remember right.

So having talked to someone who knows all the things that the rock star would know, I found out what I wanted to know. I need to get rid of my corporation. Working is just a hobby and I never thought I'd live this long.

Yep, Romney's a good ol' boy. We need him in office. He's kind of like old school.

Rick Kepple said...

My old roommate, Nick is living at my home again, Jim. Getting old. So I figure to train him to manage all that stuff and to write public relations. They like him better than me anyway. I just piss everyone off eventually.

The best that I can do is vote for Romney. I'll stick with practicing guitar, golf, go fishing and stuff.

When you're disabled like me, talking to a rock star is like the most exciting thing on the planet! Voting becomes an excursion. Conversations with friends from way back when is a reminder that we need a good ol' boy in government.

Jim McAllister said...


Does it ever end with these liars? Obama speaks more slowly? Give me a break!

CNN and the other libs should be able to do better than that since they are so used to lying.

Speaking of lying, Charlie Krauthammer got off a good one on Obama today about his comments on Libya. He said Obama "should tell the truth. It's easier to memorize."

Funny about Mitchell mentioning the lower pay for women at MSNBC. Come on, a good left wing network like that demeaning women? LOL

I saw a family beside Old Route 66 yesterday. They had an old Chevy Suburban, sitting in lawn chairs, a sign that said, "Help, we're out of gas and out of food!"

Churches help families. It's a religious business thing. The modern religions don't want single men or single women. As one pastor said, it's marketing! Get the kids, get the parents, start bringing in more money and their interest is not in singles. That's the Bible Belt!

Obama has the government giving handouts to everyone and that's fine to keep people breathing until jobs are created. I hear the rhetoric from politicians and see the reality - two different things.

Romney is promising 12.5 million jobs. Do you know WHY he chose that number? Hmmmm?

It just happens to be the same number of jobs that the Republican Party has made in the last 40 years. The Democrats claim to have made four times that many jobs.

However, IMO, I would rather have freedom than be forced to be Muslim or have everything taken from me, because infidels aren't allowed to own property.

If Romney doesn't win, it's very likely that in another 20 years, that's the reality of America. Nothing but poverty, a few rich people and everyone faces Mecca to pray.

I used to live a small town where the powers that be will pigeonhole people like that. Where you ARE what society says you ARE and it's still that way. I'll not be pigeonholed by religions either. Thankfully in 20 years from now, I'm hoping to be dead.

Rick Kepple said...

War is definitely coming, but if Mitt Romney is not elected, that war could be in the United States of America! Yes, Romney will outsource more jobs, unemploy 12.5 more hard working Americans and ease the transition of foreigners to immigrate to the United States, but the United States of America must be preserved.

I was going to post a video of war with heavy metal music, President Obama speaking over the top of it with speeches of peace and prosperity, but most of you folks don't actually live in the true reality of the world. You live in Happydale.

You'd say that the video was distasteful, disgusting, I'm a monster for posting it and more.

But if Mitt Romney is not elected, Islam will take over America, we will all lose our homes, because international law will change and infidels can't own homes, property, businesses or anything.

midnightsstaff said...

.."Thankfully in 20 years from now, I'm hoping to be dead"

..don't be guilty of setting your goals too high there Rick..

I still don't know how the government can "create" jobs, as far as I know they can only discourage a healthy jobs environment...

Anyone thinking that any president will be able to quickly turn back the hands of time and restore what once was is smokin' some pretty good stuff.. the end there is little more any president can do other than reduce the size of goverment and cut back the mountain of punitive environmental excess the regulators have built blocking progress.

Before the robotic revolution and the computerization of society it would be easier, but today?- show me.
.. we now need very few people to program and keep robots functioning efficiently- we are never going to return to a classical industrial production based society.

..frankly it's my opinion we have too many useless eaters in society now- anyone that thinks a multi-generational army of gangbangers and welfare trash is somehow going to become a productive, functioning member of society is out of their minds.

As I said, I don't worry about the election and haven't for a long time but I do worry about what happens after the election.

Rick Kepple said...

"Anyone thinking that any president will be able to quickly turn back the hands of time and restore what once was is smokin' some pretty good stuff.."

Yes they are smoking some pretty good stuff and in some states, you can be arrested if you don't have enough for everyone.

Having the conversation with the guy at Dell Mack's about my dusty old past, reminded me of the organized crime that's rampant in Illinois and the machine that got Obama in office.

Things are bad for the Republican Party to choose an outsourcing guy like Romney, but sometimes it takes one evil to destroy another evil and maybe some resemblence of good can come of it.

BTW, Dell, myself and others do not like the guy who brags upon the past that so many of us left behind, when we changed. And the rock star changed. So have I. Maybe Romney has too. We shall see.

midnightsstaff said...

..."One of the games played by Democrats under this law is the passage of stimulus bills. When a stimulus is passed, it adds immediately to the budget baseline for that year and then for every succeeding year. So the Obama-Pelosi-Reid stimulus passed in 2009 added $787 billion of new spending to the federal budget in 2009. It then went on to add $834 billion of new spending in 2010 ($787 billion times 1.06 for the 6% yearly increase); $884 billion in 2011; and finally $937 billion in 2012. Over the last four years, this totals $3,442 billion more than would have been budgeted through the normal process -- which is precisely why the Democrats wanted it passed as a stimulus"... taken from this article link:

This should be mandatory reading for anyone before allowing them to vote, I doubt five percent of voting citizens have even ever heard of the concept of Baseline Budgeting...
but it's a real cancer that no politician will ever willingly address..

..we need more statesmen and fewer politicians.. as I have said before, we don't have a political problem in this country- we have a immorality problem.

Yet we continue to vote for those of obvious questionable morality who will game the system right until they are made to stop.

November 6 will just be the landing at Normandy... there is a long way yet to go all the way to Berlin, that is if we survive the landing.

Just thank God right now none of us have to load into actual Higgin's boats eh?- just take the time to vote.

Rick Kepple said...

"there is a long way yet to go all the way to Berlin, that is if we survive the landing."

Middy, most people here know what you're talking about, but sadly a lot of kids don't know what a Normandy is, unless it's on a video game.

Maybe that's how Romney can win. It's an interesting thought to make a campaign gimmick; a Mitt Romney video game to increase exposure.

Take a lesson from religion, GOP. Get the kids involved and get the parents involved. I should be getting paid for these novel ideas.

Rick Kepple said...

Just imagine. A PS3 game of the CIA rushing into the Oval Office and the kids get to learn what it's like to be President Romney! They have multiple choices like in any game, where each decision leads to different outcomes.

People could find out how difficult it is to be Romney. (Dog cage for roof of car not included. Not actual affiliation with Mitt Romney, Mormons or anyone else. No credit check required. No politicians were injured in the making of this comment).

midnightsstaff said...

Joke around about it but the blood flowing from today's market is probably signaling something much more damaging than another garden variety distribution day in the market..

Keep in mind the people around Chernobyle for a week or so didn't notice anything wrong..

..On Aug. 6th 1945 people in northern Japan had no idea the issues they faced.

Obama and his Keynesian policy has left the nation's economics in the shitter, President Romney is going to have more on his plate than Obama inherited- there is no avoiding reality.

proud said...

Think about this?...
If Obama gets reelected (by naive suckers, partisan hacks, knee cap bustin, short on thinkin,union goons and of course, Americans, complete, I form my political views watching the comedy channel, morons)...
I can't help wondering if he will duck ALL responsibility and continue to try and shift blame by attempting to whine and complain about inheriting a disastrously bad, past four year, situation?
(and, as obviously STUPID as it may sound.... you can bet that people like hired gun and pennypincher will ra-ra this idiotic excuse)

Jim McAllister said...

Penny Pincher? LOL Good one, Proud.

I can see her being the way she is. She is nothing but a mercurial idiot who would shit on her mother to catch on to a cause that would recognize her. Why else would she hang around with Randy Parraz?

Joe, on the other hand, is a pretty bright educated guy but somewhere along the way he got poisoned with the Obama kool aid.

I just can't figure him.

midnightsstaff said...

The greater question is "why bother?"..

As I told you Jim, the biggest wake up call I ever got was finally admitting the projecting of one's own values onto some other person is a sure fire way to get burned...

Take people for what they are and not what they claim, anyone can mouth the words, but you can tell pretty soon where they are coming from by their thinking and methodology- just asking them to expand on the topic and explain the reasoning pretty much tells you all you need to know.

I made a bad mistake on my initial view of President Romney, I have no real excuse but maybe a weak explanation could be I just distrust northeastern politicians out of hand - nevertheless, I got blindsided- I am starting to reaaaally dislike these RonPaulobots, I agree with some of his thinking, but we don't need another Ross Perot moment do we?

Shopping days are getting short, what is it now eighteen days or so?

..I predict there's going to be a shortage of enough crow to go around on this one even though a lot of people deserve seconds.

midnightsstaff said...

On the other hand it seems the get out and vote campaign has taken a definite tack to the pot, er.. I mean portside..

..."EAGLE ROCK ( — Fliers offering $40 worth of free medical-grade marijuana were reportedly passed out in Eagle Rock to try and draw residents to vote in the local election"

..ain't elections fun?- and you laugh when I call it "Clownafornia"- hell I survived it!

Rick Kepple said...

"On Aug. 6th 1945 people in northern Japan had no idea the issues they faced."

Actually, America and Japan knowing the war would drag on until the last living person stood and that was the Japanese resolve to win. It's the entire reason the War Department decided to change strategy from wasting hundreds of thousands of Americans in an invasion against Japan. The strategic planners knew it would ultimately destroy both countries and Russia would win in the end.

So nuking Japan was actually saving lives on both sides.

I still believe Bush, Obama and Romney are military strategy as is offshoring jobs. I read all those reports and if you put them all together, they fit. The Chinese used to say that they could beat America without firing a shot, but Romney says that we need to outsource more jobs and businesses to them and teach them the American way of living.

So I think the United States learned to strategize and Vietnam was just one big laboratory experiment in weapons development. Romney and Ryan could easily dominate the world. Smile real pretty and fire that nuke.

midnightsstaff said...

what the hell are you talking about?- that nonsense you are babbling has nothing to do with the point I was making..

I was pointing out that the awareness of the ultimate, catastrophic level of damage is not always appreciated by the masses for a while.

...that's the problem with having a talking parrot in the house.

.. have a cracker Rick.

Rick Kepple said...

"that nonsense you are babbling has nothing to do with the point I was making"

Yes, but it was the point that I was making about the error in your thinking. Besides, I outranked you in the military. I outranked Jim too.

Rick Kepple said...

I shall reread Middy's comment. Tomorrow. I'm tired.

I'm watching Stevie Ray Vaughn. I love Stevie. Or loved. I learn a lot by watching the guitarists in various videos.

And dudes, Dell Mack knows Jimmy Page. He used to play with all those guys in Nashville and I guess Jimmy was always in that town. I would faint if I walked in the studio some day and Jimmy Page was standing there. I'd fall to my knees, hold out my guitar and cry, "I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!"

midnightsstaff said...

I'm sure he would agree..

Buddy Miller is a Nashville legend, great guitarist that worked on the Band of Joy album.. smokin' stuff..

proud said...

rick....if you walk into a room and any SANE person happens to be there(even a can with Mr. Peanut)....You should drop to your knees and chant "I'm not worthy"

Caue, truth is....


Rick Kepple said...

What always surprised me about the Republicans, is how they claim to believe in God, then when God actually uses a homeless person to help them, they seem surprised.

The Republicans are permanently stuck on this prosperity doctrine nonsense. The Democrats are stuck in this pseudo-communism thing, minus the religion.

They are both helping the American people to death.

I'm sorry, but Proud's comment seemed to have come out fuzzy on this end. I can't read it. Must be a God thing.

Rick Kepple said...

I just read on Facebook that Fidel Castro suffered a stroke and died.

midnightsstaff said...

.."I hope Proud has children and they starve to death before he dies"..

..well spoken Rick, now there can be no question of your evil nature because in my mind it takes a twisted, evil person to wish death on someone's children because you don't like to listen to the truth.

But that's what always happens to someone who lets Satan control their future and life-
...and that describes you Rick.

Personally I wish Jim would just block your silly ass entirely and not look back but that would conflict with my libertarian nature..
..I imagine that what will happen is more and more rational people will just avoid the blog.

Sometimes it's hard to deny your own desires if you have principle, but someone like you with absolutely no principle can take any position they want and threaten with impunity.. you are no different than any other message bearer from hell living in a parallel universe, hating what they cannot understand, railing against God and his people..

I hope you choke on your words asshole because redemption for a turd like you is probably impossible.

Jim McAllister said...


I just deleted some of your comments.

I won't tolerate some of the stuff you say about wishing death on family members of those who write on this blog. It's ill advised and not smart.

Anything more in that vein and I will delete ALL your comments whether they offend or not so watch your p's and q's.

Rick Kepple said...

"Anything more in that vein and I will delete ALL your comments whether they offend or not so watch your p's and q's."

Oh but it's okay for your friends to bully me? You think it's fun to rip on someone from a lower class than yourself? Yep, just like Stevie Nicks. You people are twisted and worse than Muslims and Obama.

Jim McAllister said...


The guys may bully you a bit but they don't wish death on your children or other family members. That is crossing the line.

midnightsstaff said...

keep digging jackwad..

Rick Kepple said...

"The guys may bully you a bit but they don't wish death on your children or other family members. That is crossing the line."

Rich people made sure I couldn't have children a long time ago, Jimmy. So you see, the wealthy rule the earth, don't they?

Middy pops his head up out of the sand to spit out a taunt as if to prove my point. You people are as twisted as Islam. Don't insult your children, but death to Welfare children, right because we're infidels and with a prettier name? Take away their food stamps, take the school lunches, take, take, take. You people are good at taking and using God as an excuse.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will start another crusade against Islam. You guys will get your oil, your gold and the wealth, but you don't want to know how many children died for you to be rich. That would just be boorish.

Wealthy Christians feel that God chose them and the poor are poor because they're sinful. That's not the way it works, folks.

Take the entitlements of the children, but not your own. Torturing for information. Gee, why is this beginning to appear like the inquisition and led by the rich? You people.

So are you gonna threaten to strangle me now? You can apologize tomorrow and no one will care, because you're rich. If I did that, I'd be guilty for the rest of my life, because I don't have your money.

So if you want my sympathy, then earn it! Insulting me will not make me like you or get rid of me. You will be the cause of the bad economy. Those people in Scottsdale where all the investors live are to blame. In 2013, when Romney takes their food, I suggest you move out of the country. I'll be growing my own food and helping God to take care of good, Christian people.

midnightsstaff said...

I dare anyone to explain what that rambling diatribe meant.


midnightsstaff said...

Well it looks like Obi wan ObZer000OOOooo otherwise known as "the great black hope" has run a bit short because there are about forty swing states this election thanks to his brilliant leadership, so he goes to his buddy Bank Of America (Warren Buffett) for a 15 billion dollar loan.. what the ....?

Couldn't he have gotten hold of Ben Bernanke and had him print up a fresh batch?..

Oh well BOA owes him big time.. just remember folks who is the enemy...BOA, Citibank, Goldman, Morgan Stanley.... etc.

Now the word is he is badgering "the boss" Bruce Springsteen for a brand new campaign song.

I was a bit slow so some wag beat me to the suggestion "Born in America" which probably wouldn't have worked anyway.

Rick Kepple said...


I don't explain for free. I have a right to make a living too.

Dell Mack knows Jimmy Page, Joe Walsh and has met Eric Clapton, the three greatest guitarists in the world. Some could argue that Lindsey Buckingham fits in there somewhere, but he's old now and can't play near what he could. Jack White is probably the one to compete with now. The Edge is only good for his techno wizardry. Great guitarists aren't great for playing cover songs. They're great for creating their own stuff.

Rick Kepple said...

.."it's better to be an asshole from El Paso than a passo from El Asshole"- being Frank."

I knew an asshole from El Paso. He staggered up to me once and hit my wife, then told me to stay away from his rich sister. Now that's an asshole. That wife's father worked for the Denver mob and they almost had him killed, but it was a worse punishment to let him live.

proud said...

Haven't you heard?....Sandra ROCKS!

Jim McAllister said...

Little did The Red Menace know that her actions were giving birth to her new name (see "Red Menace") but also her exclamation of "Sandra Fluke Rocks!" would become her new mantra to be laughed at by those who have the ability to think rationally.

....And they thought Lucille Ball was "that crazy redhead."

I pass up homeless people or tell them to get a job. I am a Republican. I earned my disability through years of work and paying into my Social Security account and everyone else can kiss my buck. I am a Republican. Democrats ask for my help, but I prefer helping a corporation, because I am a Republican. I help the Humane Society with equipment and money that is tax deductable because I am a Republican! I only play an electric guitar, because liberals prefer acoustic guitars and whiny little songs. I am a Republican! I own my land, I pay taxes on it and I can have built what I damn well please, because I am a Republican. I am a real American Republican. A man's man for real men! I am a Republican! I taught Clint Eastwood all he knows about being a man! I am a Republican's Republican.

Rick Kepple said...

I popped a muscle relaxer last night and almost died. I got to the Gates of Heaven and there stood everyone I ever knew and some that I wished I didn't know, and others I wished I knew, but they didn't wish to know me, as well as everyone who wished they knew those who didn't wish to know me and a few who knew and said they didn't know, but did and I woke up to go take a leak to fix the squeak in the gate, and I realized I had missed the toilet. And there by the toilet was President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney both toweling off.

And then I woke up, realizing that I hadn't awakened, but really did and didn't know. I am never taking that muscle relaxer again.

midnightsstaff said...

so close... so close- try taking two this time.

Sure glad the Texans last week weren't the Texans this week.
haha, that was a mulligan.

Rick Kepple said...

"...what an attention whore."

Keep talking. More excuses to hate the rich and to hate celebrities. One day, I'll have an opportunity to stick it to one of them, the way that y'all attacked me, only worse.

People in my local area ask if I'm on acid or cocaine, for saying that I know that rock star. So when they need help, I turn Republican. I do nothing.

I'm studying Obama today. I gotta know who I'm voting for. Romney's like any other rich or famous people - a liar. That's all I need to know about him or SN. Rich people are like junkies and will do anything for money.

Rick Kepple said...

"The Red Nightmare." A 1962 anti-Communist propaganda film and if you watch it, you're going to notice that all their fears are all our present political realities. This film will make you go buy that tactical rifle! President Romney will continue President George W. Bush work and that includes the disarmament of military veterans. President Obama won't be any better.

Watch the film. See the America of 2013 released in 1962.

The Red Menace is today's The Elite Menace making us believe they're against it, when they are behind putting Communism in America. It sure ain't the poor deciding to make these laws!

Rick Kepple said...

I don't want any of you people to change. If you didn't want to talk to me in life, don't come to my funeral or memorial service.

Y'all don't care to know the particulars and some of my friends are reading this. No, not suicide. It's just not necessary. And I don't want your sympathy and I'm not going for treatment. Just the occasional blood test.

How can I of all people be afraid of what's on the other side? Why not let nature take its course? After all, I'm using YOUR money in my disability and I'll be using the money of the rich for expensive medical treatment and the shrink said that rich people like to kill, so they should get a charge out of my death.

It's too late to do anything and I've got that bunker to finish and more stuff to do in my life. It ain't over until the fat lady sings. I have the luxury of not having anyone who cares.

Middy will say his usual insults and it's not attention whoring. I just wanted you to know the reality of the situation and I don't want to hear from any of you. Just be your self-centered selves and carry on. Don't even try doing favors for me. I don't want your help or your money. You didn't care before, why change now?

Insult away. Let's get the show on the road!

Mike Slater said...

Hi Jim, just back from my elk hunt that didn't go well.

I watched the debate and felt the Obama is getting desperate. The debate Monday should finish him off.

Obama may want to contact a moving company soon. What would be sweeter than seeing him and his a-hole wife leaving the White House.

In the words of the Willie Nelson song "Turn out the lights the party's over."

Obama's party is over.

Mitt held his own in the second debate even though he had to put up with another liberal moderator. Now it's Bob Shieffer tomorrow who also is a typical liberal but is an old guy so maybe he will fall asleep.

I just hope Mitt crushes O and he should based on what a screwed up mess foreign affairs is with that SOB bowing to every muslim he meets plus screwing up Libya.

Now I see where O has been taking illegal donations for his campaign from overseas.

I would love to see him and Michelle thrown in the slammer with nothing for food but that crap she has been trying to force on school kids. I see where the kids are almost all throwing that stuff away. LOL What a clueless dummy she is.

Middy, It wasn't for lake of ammo it was the fact that my son, in all his wisdom, thought it was a good idea to take his 3 year old on the hunting trip. Nothing like listening to a whining crying kid when you're trying to hunt.

Jim, If general Douglas MacArthur had been left along and not bothered by Truman we wouldn't have a problem in Korea today.Politicians always screw things up.

BTW, I think you can stick a fork in the Cardinals because they're done.

Rick Kepple said...

Just watched "Obama's America" that I got from Walmart. I wish they'd do one on "Romney's America."

President Obama's father was born in another country as was Governor Romney's father. There are other similarities, making me wonder what the two parties are up to. And I watch the movie, "Red Nightmare," it looks like the Patriot Act, the disarmament of military veterans and Fast and Furious by two different political parties!

But I gave an oath to uphold the laws of the United States government about 30 years ago. As the member of a team, I have to believe that those people are doing the right thing and I just don't know the bigger picture like they do.

"Rick, Are you going to throw a pity party before you go?"

No, because I don't trust you. And some of you people admitted in writing that you've pushed people to suicide for the fun of it. A shrink even concurred that the rich do this for the fun of it. I still find it difficult to believe that anyone could be that mean, but I've seen how little regard you people have for human life.

Except when Barbara Nicks died. Then all of you disappeared. Especially Jimmy and Middy. Why would you people who hate the Nicks' family like you say you do, stop blogging out of respect?

There's no law that says a cop has to protect you either. Turn me in boys and girls, but the cops take their orders from me. I'll tell them I suspect you people and show them the evidence. Hang yourselves. Do me a favor, please.

I know you people are dirty. And the government knew Bodo was coming to visit me when he did. I don't like any of you people. If you lie to me about the little things, you lie to me about the big things. Plain and simple.

So insult away. One of these days, one of your cohorts will give a deathbed confession and implicate one or all of you in the crimes that you've done.

Save your pity. You'll need it for yourselves.

I'm wondering if I have enough hot sauce to last during the transitionary period. A dozen bottles should kill the taste of just about anything.

So do y'all think the stock market is going to collapse by 90 percent? I find that hard to believe.

But what if the rumors are true about the Middle East creating the Muslim system similar to the EU. I hope all Muslims are inspired to move back home. They could create a Middle Eastern Scottsdale complete with twirling hotties.

Rick Kepple said...

Isn't there another debate today? I'll have to catch the live feed on TV ... NOT!

Mitt Romney promised to redistribute America's wealth. We have to make the world a happy place, you know.

And no, I don't want some fluffy millionaire to teach me how to get rich by exploiting people. I don't remember any verbal agreements and since no one has talked to me about it, I must assume that it was a dream and y'all are my sworn enemies out to kill me.

Rich people are always looking for an angle on how to screw over their fellow human being and kill ordinary people for the fun of it.

Romney intends to teach the Chinese how to kill ordinary people for the fun of it. After all, America teaches terrorists all they know!

It's like that ricin poison. You think a bunch of goat herders in Yemin just decided one day to extract ricin from castor beans? Who do you think taught them? Rich pricks in America, that's who. The dumbest people on earth.

midnightsstaff said...

it's funny how no one is questioning what "Ambassador" Stevens (CIA) was doing in Benzgali in the first place.

I have a theory that the real reason there was no security was his operations had to be carried out in secrecy, and you just can't do that with a Marine Corps contingency marshaled nearby.

Those SAM 7 missiles of Kadafi were headed somewhere, they don't just get scrapped when the local politics are settled.

Was he actually the coordinator behind moving those jihadist troops and heavy weapons through Turkey into the killing fields of Syria on behalf of al Queda?

The tip off to any rational person is why the US govt. felt it unnecessary to provide minimum security in a hell hole like Libya in the first place.

The only explanation in my mind is they thought there was no real need because our interests were in concert with al Queda so no threat would be realized..

The fact that a gunship sat by a mere distance from the over run position while a drone took pictures and did nothing can be chalked up to either incompetence or reluctance by the President who thought this was merely a hostage taking event- and didn't want to over react pissing them off.

..something obviously went wrong, if Stevens was intended to be merely captured and held hostage for our fearless leader to rescue right before the election then that would explain a lot in explaining how our FUBAR in Chief seemed so entirely lost.

.. after all the scenario was not anything like what Vallerie the Iranian born Muslim Brotherhood mole had promised and he was forced to "think" on his feet- an impossibility.

I am forced to believe that Stevens proved to be too much a liability to allowed to live and possibly be debriefed by the new administration, eventually revealing the truth...

Keep in mind two people can share secrets, but only if one of them are dead ...someone please prove me wrong.

Maybe the fool should just resign on stage tonight and save us the riots.

there..I finally tied it into the topic.

The Ambassador Stevens thing might actually have been intentional, like 9/11 might have been too. It's a bipartisan effort to prove to the world that Islam is NOT the most tolerant religion and push their leadership to comply with the NWO, or else.

You mark my words, if Romney gets in, he's gonna wipe Islam off the face of the earth. The Republicans are good at taking out the trash.

And the enemies of the American people in this country will be likewise allowed to prove they must also be eliminated or controlled.

Control: it's the entire reason that rock stars are sold drugs by management. It's a little something that musicians in the Indie world have told me and why they hate mainstream.

Oh yeah. I get it now.

I was at the studio helping to develop a new product and the kid is really very good! He's got a nifty sound and lyrics with talent rivalling Elvis and Bob Dylan.

But the guys at the studio were saying that you guys are probably kidding around with me. I know we can make a marketable product, but I don't understand humor too well. I don't remember well either, but they say that I'm really smart.
