Now That's A Great Idea


So they'll just move the Democratic National Convention outdoors for one night into a packed stadium of people going nuts. That will be a scene.

McCain may very well win the presidency, but events like this scare the heck out of the Republicans.

It's not the event, it's the number of clueless Liberals (who are afraid to do research) who will be in attendance.

Where do you guys get any information to form your opinions?

It's a great idea because the stench from liberal weenies will be able to dissipate into the atmosphere and will save on disenfecting the indoor coliseum.

How is 1:34's comment not name calling now that you've dumped mine, which was actually a joke?
Pretty funny one at that.

McCain should accept the nomination in an outhouse. Or, on second thought, at the craps table.

Doesn't having the nomination in Mile High Stadium sound expensive? The necessary security, not to mention electricity, water, etc. All of Wise Co. could fill up our vehicles with fuel for a while on what that is going to cost.

The smell in the outhouse would be an improvement over Mile High Stadium.

Barry, Daily Kos is reporting that, in another break with tradition, Obama will forgo the usual acceptance and inspirational speech, opting instead for an interpretative end zone dance to celebrate his candidacy.

Anonymous said...

The reason it's no big deal to have it at the Stadium is because Al Gore has invented a machine that cuts electricty use in half, really, it's no big deal. I mean it is true because he did invent the internet, right!! Wait, I need to flush now, I'll get back with you.

gern blansten said...

I agree with jarhead, in that this is just another example of Obama's campaign of glitz and fluff, trying to hide his liberal stance on the issues:

It doesn't matter, though, because, as bad a candidate as McCain is in my opinion, he's better than Obama.

gern blansten said...

Oh, and by the way, BG, if you dump the posts that are just name-calling, you won't have ANY liberals on here for very long! lol

Some Republicans may be getting migraines that McCain is trying to distance himself from Bush with the loss of jobs in America.

Shhh - don't tell Wordy, but McCain QUOTED this fact in a speech recently. For those who just must have the facts, they CAN be researched.

Sheesh!

this clueless liberal picks up his data from his 401k report, bank statement, medicare summary, his dealing with oil companies re his royalties, his relatives serving in Iraq, his encounters with foreigners overseas, (who think all Texans are like W, and question our educational system here)and a a couple of national weekly newspapers and magazines.

not to mention a couple of wordkyle-like relatives who are so sure I can't make an intelligent decision without their help.

So far a vote for "none of the above" seems the most rational

In a recent extremely scientific poll, more Americans said that they'd prefer to invite Barack Obama to their barbecue over John McCain or McBush.

You want to invite the black guy because you figure he knows how to make a kick-ass barbecue sauce. Even if that were the case, how do you plan to invite Obama to your cookout and convince him to bring a jar of his barbecue sauce without making him think that's all you're inviting him for?

All you people make me laugh like Jarhead,Wordkyle and on and on thinking your words make any difference or have any meaning or impact in the scheme of things because in the end they are nothing but regurgitated bits and pieces of partial facts,half truths,conjecture,lies and so on gained from news papers,radio,internet and TV and not through personal experience working in the field you speak about.

All of your words are nothing more than echoes of what you hear with your own small opinions and beliefs injected here and there.

You all believe with all your hearts and souls that what you preach is the gospel and it isn't any more or less accurate than what you hear or see on TV or the Radio.

This forum is nothing more than a bunch of fellow blogsters who aren't any more or less informed than you could be through the same sources.

I suppose it makes a selected few feel impowered,superior or somehow in control but the only thing you control is if the trash is taken out the night before it is to be picked up and maybe a few other duties around the house.

You use the words Democrat,Republican,Conservative,Liberal,Rightwing, Leftwing etc. like they have some meaning but they really don't.

Politics is People controlling people.It is about their personal power,and financial gains so they and their families can live the good life and you and me are nothing more than a means to an end or sheep if you'd like.They say and do whatever it takes to win that position in order to get where they want to be and the rest is nothing but smoke.

Like I said it makes me laugh because no one be it Obama or McCain is coming to save you and me but you all continue to talk as if your man gets into office the world will suddenly be a better place but you forget the past so quickly.

This planet is in severe trouble and it can't be fixed by a few selected people because we can't go back again.

813 - If you restrict your learning to only those things with which you have personal experience, you are limiting your knowledge. Other people can be knowledgable too, and it often pays to hear what they have to say.

The group here is as well-informed and knowledgable about issues as any citizens have ever been throughout history -- that is, not perfect. And civilization has continued in spite of the imperfect knowledge of the common man. Maybe America will survive our little discourse.

Your pessimism and apparent sense of powerlessness is sad.

“In a free society, what we are and who we are depends on us -- except for the very most poor among us, where the government can indeed make a difference. But for the huge bulk of us Americans, no matter what any Republican or any Democrat promises, it’s up to the people in our house, not the White House. For most of us, what the politicians say is just sideshow barking, and when the circus leaves town we’ve got to get back to basics: work, save, and teach your children well, and enjoy the political sideshow. But it’s just show business, not real business.” - Ben Stein

It is certain to be the downfall of the greatest empire ever, our only salvation will be those principals put in place 232 years ago. WE the PEOPLE have become no more than the disloyal subjects that fought and died to form a more perfect union...

7:30 is thinking. The Democrates are wealthy like Kennedy and Gore. They want to collect our assets for the government when we die, rather than pass them on to our children. But like Kennedy, they have a "0" net worth. When they die, their assets are passed on in a trust without taxation. Bet you that BG owns nothing, so it is worthless to sue him, he pays few taxes, and does not provide his employees with health care. Yet he tells everyone to do what he is not willing to do.

Like Al Gore, who uses 225,000 KWH of electricity a year, he is wasteful, but tell us to conserve and to protect mother earth. We little people live in small homes and try to conserve. We don't have a lot of money to spend on $10,000 high efficiency air conditioners but be do the best we can with the money that we can make. We put aluminum foil on our mobil home windows to block the heat. We turn the thermostate to 80 and sweat a little. We consider ourselves rich because we remember our childhood and hear our parents talk about life without air conditioning.

Meanwhile the rich Democrates (and Republicans) are depressing our wages with illegal labor. We are pawns or peasants for the rich. However, they want our votes. Got your number, right!

A weird thing to me about Hitlers memory. You say evil,awful person and it's very likely someone will think Hitler. Look at the Saddam comparison in this regard. Stalin was responsible for something along the order of 3-4 times as many death of his people as the number of Jews who died in the Holacaust.
Why don't we say,"That man is another Stalin?

This will definitely be an interesting election cycle. Obama's wanting to do the stadium thing is "interesting", to say the least. McCain with what appears to be no desire to "get down and after it" about anything is interesting too. One has no experience at all and one has no stand there and verbally argur with his opponent! Somebody needs to make a change in their policy and I don't think the one with no experience can do anything about that.

Vote the best person running for the position people and not just because of the particular party. Maybe then we'll start to effect a change.

Wordkyle, why do you always feel you must run down the Democrats in almost every post?

You have even given us some criticism of the Republicans from time to time, representing balance.

Surely, you can find SOME good in SOME Democrats?

wordkyle said...

Not to beat a dead horse, but there will be no "change" until we can get rid of career politicians. None of them, D or R, are interested in putting themselves out of a job. The governmment was designed to be run by "citizen statesmen," who return to private life after a short time in office.

Wordkyle--Love the 10:04 comment. I think that's absolutely right and have for some time. The guys who served during this country's infancy gathered together, made decisions and beat it home so they could get back to work. Whether they were farmers, lawyers or furniture makers they had to get home and earn a living to feed their families. It gave them perspective. Now you get elected one time, stay in Washington and let the lobbyists grovel and gift you and oh yeah--you get a retirement check for the rest of your life! I'm pretty sure it's not what the founding fathers had in mind.

wordkyle said...

945 - My beef is not with Democrats per se, but with Liberalism. On the national scene, all the Democrat leaders are Liberal. For the last twenty years, leading Democrats have mounted some of the most vile character assassinations against Republicans and Conservatives who represent traditional American values, simply for political reasons.

Show me a Democrat who will promote national security, who believes in more take home pay, and who won't exploit the politics of envy, and I'll say nice things about him. I won't hold my breath waiting, though. Far-Left special interest groups now control the DNC.

Meanwhile I'll work to defeat Liberals every chance I get.

I appreciate your comments 9:37. To me it is just silly to vote for a person just because of a political party. As a Democrat, I've voted plenty of times (and been reprimanded by the Democratic purists), for a Republican if I thought this person was the best qualified and/or suited for the job.

Double amen to your last sentence.

I don't exactly know which character assignations Wordkyle refers to re Demo's doing it to Repub. However, with Rush, and Swiftboaters in mind, I am wondering if the pot is calling the kettle black.

I flip the channel instantly as soon as any commercial goes negative in a personal way. It just shows how you will govern.
After what W's folks did to McCain in SC last cycle, I don't know how he poses with the guy. Desperate I guess.

I wish a truly "non-demoninational group" would monitor ads of both sides and cray foul when necessary.

If they didn't have to sell their souls to get elected.......

Anonymous said...

Wordkyle poses as the ultimate authority on most everything political. I recall his impassioned and documented claim that we are not in a classical recession. However, Mr. McCain has recently said, "If we're technically in a recession or not, I would imagine that we are, but the major thing is, Americans are hurting, and Americans don't like it and they think the country's in the wrong direction."

OK Mr. Brilliant, even McCain understands it doesn't matter what you call this economy - it is in trouble. BTW, it was FDR who invented the term "recession" because they had recently been thru a "depression" and he needed another term for economic trouble.

Wordkyle, your pontification is transparently superficial to even observers of this blog.

3:04 - I agree with you about negative politics, etc., but it seems to work with John Q. Public. We always want to believe the worst about people/things rather than the good/positive.

It is a sad commentary to humans.

It is an interesting thing. At funeral/memorial services the positive about the deceased is always presented and rarely if ever anything negative because it would be considered insensitive and inappropriate.

So I guess in the end the positive wins out!

Wonder what will be said about Rush Limbaugh types when they kick the bucket?

wordkyle said...

405 - In what way have I presented myself as an "ultimate authority" on anything? Because I can read?

I'll address this once more [only] -- the term "recession" has been bandied about in the media for months as shorthand for the economy, despite the fact that traditionally a recession is defined as "two consecutive quarters of decline in GDP," of which there have been none since 2001. The incorrect use is handy for Democrats (including McCain!) who want to demonize the Bush administration. McCain is as big an opportunist as any Democrat -- he is the better option for President only against a Liberal Democrat.

I have never disputed that the economy has developed troubles in the last eighteen months. (Coincidentally, since the Democrats took over Congress. Yet they escape any blame in the media.)

My opinions may indeed be "superficial," yet they provoke a lot of profanity, name-calling and diversion from the issues by the Liberals who respond. When you guys make me the topic of yur post, it appears that you have run out of valid points on the issues.

...which confirms my point about Liberals who demonize their opponents.

Anonymous said...

3:04 - locally, meaning city and county wide - I disagree with you - many of these folks are sincere about wanting to "serve" their communities with their leadership skills and interest.

My opinion is that when a person runs for state/national office - something happens - mostly for selfish purposes, not to better mankind with service but to climb the political ladder.

Thus, we have what we have in state/national government for the most part, and how are we out here in heartland to figure out which candidates are for themselves or for bettering mankind?

Wordkyle, give us your opinions on the oil situation. Think it is confusion to the public by Republicans, Democrats, or both?

Some say, confusion breeds apathy, and that may be true, since we get so much of that through the media, whether printed or shouted by the Limbaugh crowd blowhards!

Cheney is being critized for withholding information about "climate change" to President Bush being shown in a group of world leaders who will promote just the opposite. Check out the major newspapers. Just what are we to believe?

The pain at the pump is a front burner issue with most Americans.

Are you enjoying the high gasoline prices?

wordkyle said...

613 - The information that Cheney supposedly "withheld" dealt with supposed health risks associated with supposed "climate change" (the new term for "global warming," since "global warming" doesn't work any more because the earth's temperature has dropped the last few years.)

It was more accurately descriped as editing of scientific testimony before Congress, apparently a not-unusual practice in previous administrations.

If we want lower gas prices, we need to exploit every possible American oilfield to the fullest extent. Wisely and carefully, of course, but with the idea of using our own oil first (and refining our own gasoline.) If that fails to bring down the price, then we can look at other options, but as a first step that seems rather obvious. Why pay high prices for pecans if you have a pecan tree in your own back yard?

Politically, that idea will never fly. Too many people on both sides are invested in keeping the problem unsolved.

All IMHO, of course.

Anonymous said...

Thanks Wordkyle - I agree that we should drill in this country and think it can be done with good conservation procedures put into place.

There is another thing we can do, but likely won't because we are locked into our own greed (I speak for myself) - and we should be intentional about seeking alternatives.

It's just more of what the politicians do to keep us confused about the whole issue.

It works.

603 We -- the people, not necessarily the government -- should be working on alternative energy sources. We should have been doing that all along, without regard to oil supplies or gas prices.

There is a thriving alternative energy industry out there. I suspect the costs on alt. energy will drop over the next several years as more companies jump on board.

A tidbit: I am designing a home for our future use that I hope will be completely energy self reliant. A combination of wind and solar. I haven't figured out the water part yet; west Texas is very dry and I suspect it will get drier. My purpose is not for "green" issues. I want to live out my later years without having to worry about energy costs. Good ole enlightened self-interest.

So, Wordkyle, does your thinking include a new war with Iran, via Condolessa Rice and her threat that the United States will "flex their muscles" at this recent missile firing?

Could this be our next war, prepared by this current administration for the next President, whether Republican or Democrat?

And as 8:09 suggests, T Bone Pickens (as outlined on television) does have many answers.
