Thank you.

I had not heard of these two legends, or fables, before, but I have found these two accounts to be intriguing and interesting.

If Republicans can persuade Condi Rice to run, highly unlikely, they would get both, female and minority.

And she would make a great President.

Perhaps former Republican Congressman Eric Cantor of Virginia will make a comeback.
29  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama surpasses Hillary on the Wall Street Speaking Circuit on: April 28, 2017, 03:09:25 pm
And when Obama bailed out Wall Street, just where was it that millions of those dollars from honest, hard working, tax paying Americans went, directly into the pockets of Wall Street executives to pay their bonuses, that's where.

Obama lacked the foresight to take measures in order to prevent this blatant rip off from happening.

He's not so smart.

Now, Obama is getting his hands on this ill gotten gain from Wall Street by agreeing to give a speech to corporate fat cats on Wall Street for $400,00.

You know, the more I think about this, maybe Obama was smart in this matter all along, really smart.

You see, by failing to put  restrictions on this bail out money so that it could not be used for Wall Street executive bonuses, he was therefore able to cut a deal with the corporate fat cats that upon leaving office, he would get paid $400,000 per speech for speaking to the fat cats on Wall Street.

Very smart deal by Obama indeed.

Jackson should never have been given the honor of having his portrait appear on the $20 bill.
I disagree. Keep in mind, the man did hate banks. Wink

Oh, what an absolutely diabolical plot to punish Jackson for his misdeeds of the past, putting his picture on U.S. currency.

Ha Ha!

Perhaps a better way  for me to have presented this issue, so as not to be thought of as trolling

Re:  Andrew Jackson issued a warrant for an escaped slave of his

http://pres-slaves.zohosites.com/andrew-jackson.html

1814 from an ad for a runaway slave published by Jackson:

“If taken (that is, captured) out of state, the above reward ($50), and all reasonable  expenses paid – and ten dollars extra, for every hundred lashes any person will give him, to the amount of three  hundred.”

This is a terrible act of cruelty that nobody has the right to inflict on another.  

Other Presidents were slave owners, but I am not aware that any other slave owner President was as cruel to his slaves as was Jackson.

Jackson should never have been given the honor of having his portrait appear on the $20 bill.

His portrait belongs in the Hall of Shame.

Melania is moving into the White House in a few days, so you'll see more of her. Baron is old enough to be "left at home alone" (i.e., he and a Secret Service dude play X-box all day) so the motherhood aspect of her life won't be so dominant. Ivanka will remain the defacto hostess 25% of the time and will have a more political role.

No, Barron Trump is still at an age where it is best if his mother is there for him.

And don't forget, Melania and Barron will be moving into the White House at the end of this school year, so this discussion is largely academic.

The nation will be well served by replacing a liberal judge who falls asleep during court sessions and during the State of the Union, by a competent conservative judge who respects the constitution.

My hope is that Trump succeeds in securing a generation of conservative judges on the high court.

Now, I am going to try to say this without sounding like trolling.

But Obama has no qualms about taking big bucks from a Wall Street bank, $400,000.

I cannot blame him for cashing in on his incredible status as the most recent former President, but to me this makes his championship of the average American laughable and hypocritical. 

The former US president has previously referred to Wall Street bankers as "fat cats" and in 2009 said the financial crisis was “caused in part by completely irresponsible actions on Wall Street”.

The reported fee is close to twice the amount Hillary Clinton was paid for three speeches to Goldman Sachs in 2015.


Barack Obama, from champion of the little guy to champion of Fat Cat bankers?

Oh, twin tramps now.

You have just left yourself wide open.

But being the magnanimous individual than I am, I shall refrain from commenting.

DFW

Get that tramp off of your signature.

Violation of the rules.
Oh I'd use some words in response that would be a violation of the rules, but I'm running a Presidential campaign Smiley

Yes, "some words" is about what I would expect from someone with a tramp like that in their signature.

I am pleased and proud to enthusiastically endorse and support Clyde for President and Siren for Vice President, who are, by a country mile, the most well qualified candidates in this election.

Common serious health problems resulting from cocaine dependency include:

heart problems, including heart attacks
respiratory effects, including respiratory failure
nervous system problems, including strokes
digestive problems
contracting HIV and other diseases (by Injecting cocaine using shared needles)
serious skin infections
severe allergic reactions
death

Cocaine produces its euphoric effect in two ways:

Artificially increasing the release of dopamine
Preventing the normal re-absorption of dopamine back into the brain’s nerve cells

Candidate Clyde, what is your stand on the issue of

"decriminalization of Cocaine and other drugs" (direct quote)

which is supported by and is being put forward by your opponent dfwlibertylover?
42  General Discussion / History / Re: Andrew Jackson was a cruel, sadistic, slaver on: April 24, 2017, 09:05:49 am
Actually, Jackson was a Republican long before he was a Democrat, Winfield. However, I don't appreciate you undoing my moderation of your trolling.

Sorry, perhaps I was a bit verbose in my presentation of this topic, however, I was simply attempting to convey my opinion in this matter.

Please delete the thread. 
43  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: If you were running for President of Atlasia… on: April 23, 2017, 10:55:00 pm
I have run a few times.

Poirot is an outstanding running mate.

Truly a monstrous act of cruelty in the annals of Presidential history.

Other Presidents were slave owners, but I am not aware than any other slave owner President was as cruel and sadistic to his slaves as was Jackson.

A portrait of slaver Jackson deserves to be hung in the Hall of Shame, not put on the $20 bill.

Winfield sure is one to lecture about drug abuse, considering his... interesting past with alcohol abuse.


Well, this is typical hysteria on the part of Senator Scott, and part of his continuing and childish hate campaign against my good person.  

Senator Scott knows full well that I have never touched a drop of alcohol in my entire life.

I rather suspect this is Senator Scott's feeble attempt to draw attention away from his clearly white supremacist sympathies.
46  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The White House Press Room (decriminalization of Cocaine and other drugs coming) on: April 22, 2017, 06:19:09 pm
By making these drugs legal, all it will do is to make it easier for addicts to access them easier, thereby running up the over dose rate tremendously.

You have obviously never had a loved one who OD'd on drugs.

Your arguments for legalizing these deadly drugs are laughable. 

You have completely and conveniently overlooked the human cost and the human tragedy in this ill conceived and short sighted proposal.

Shame on you.

Just what this nation needs, another generation of brain dead pot heads and crack addicted zombies.

The GOP here in NE will never give this up. It is a part of their platform every election and if you want to run for the legislature with their blessing you have to pledge to revert back to winner take all.

What a bunch of hypocrites. Their cohorts in MA and CA are at the same time trying to move their states to the NE system.

I've argued this with my state senator who offered ridiculous contrived reasons and finally told him to cut the crap and admit it's just a mean spirited power grab. He wouldn't respond. They know it is and don't care. One of these days this thing is going to pass and my vote and may others in this state will be made meaningless.

I do not believe there is any such thing as a meaningless vote.  If you vote for who and what you believe in, your vote is never useless.

Just because California Democrats in the 2016 Presidential election cried because the election was over before it even got to California, and they said their votes were useless, does not make it so.

And FTR, I support this move by the Nebraska GOP.
