blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Kennedy Tribute At the Democratic National Convention

8.25.2008

Kennedy Tribute At the Democratic National Convention

  • If you didn't see it, that was pretty good.
  • But I know the mindless "Hey, what about Chappaquiddick!" comments will flow. Give it up people.
  • Caroline Kennedy has always come across as completely charismatically-challenged. And I remember I bought a book of hers several years ago about the Bill of Rights and, even though I'm a constitutional idiot, even I could tell she seemed to have no idea what the Bill of Rights was* about.
  • In about 50 years when the dumbing down of America peaks, you'll have someone like the ailing Kennedy walk out on stage and fall on purpose only to have the presidential candidate rush from behind stage to save him. And the public will eat it up.
_______ *Speaking of challenged, I'm correct in using "was" instead of "were" aren't I?

Hey, what about Chappaquiddick?

GoneCrazy said...

I would have thought it is suposed to be are because the Bill of Rights have not changed. But hell, now you have me doughting myself.

And why is a comment about Chappaquiddick mindless? It seems to me that to ignore Chappaquiddick would require mindlessness at best or a deliberate attempt to cover it up at worst. I guess you would side with Harry Truman when asked about the corrupt dictator General Somoza of Panama, Truman said,"Yes he is a SOB, but he's our SOB."

Barry, you are a perfect example of the typical Democrat. You will strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.

Screw Chappaquiddick. Anyone with half a brain (no pun intended) could think of 50 better reasons to hate this guy.

Reason 1 ~ He's a Kennedy
Reason 2 ~ He's a liberal
Reason 3 ~ He's from Massachusetts

You see where I'm going with this. I can't believe you guys hold this idiot in such high esteem as the standardbearer for your party.

Well, there's almost no doubt this undeserving priveleged young man was drunk, operating a motor vehicle, and caused the death of a young woman in the aforementioned incident, I guess it should be obvious that all liberal defense attorneys would think he deserves accolades. I personally think he deserves brain cancer and the hell that is sure to follow.

"Was" was correct...and still is. The Bill of Rights refers to a single document containing the first 10 Amendments.

The German saying ("jede Familie muss ein schwarzes Schaf haben") "every family must have a black sheep" fits Ted Kennedy.

Gramatically, using "was" is correct. "Bill" is the singular noun and "was" is the correct form of the verb to use. Even though "Rights" is plural, it is accampanied by "of" making it a prepositional phrase and does not go into account when deciding what tense of the verb to use.

*at least my kids have a chance at grammar, they're going to be screwed when it comes to math because I don't have a clue on that.

All you Haters ... Get ready ... Our next President WILL BE ... Black and a Democrat to bad also not a Yankee ....

Suck that thought down today while you drive your gravel trucks around Wise County. Still hoping to be rich like those Rebublicans are?

5:58, you have not a clue and I say that not due to his skin color. I thought you Liberals didn't see color anyway so why the statement, "and black"? Barry, give us a break on the Chappequiddick incident, hell yes we're going to bring it up. You can bet if he was a Republican you guy's would still be running it down our throats. What gets me with the Liberals is they seem to talk out of both sides of their moutn. Like the "and black" comment and honesty and going to get America on the right track. How long has Kennedy been in the Senate? I realize he's just one guy but hell what has he done for everyone other than utter his "Beantown Crap". Him and Biden are two peas in a pot. All they have ever done is get rich off the people they talk about caring about. You people gotta wake up and smell the coffee.

What baffles me about these "Kennedy haters" is not that they disagree with his politics and/or lack of morals, but their lack of compassion toward a dying man.

And these are (some) of the same folks that believe in the sancity of life before birth?

Some Republicans are truly repugnant.

7:16 .."All (Kennedy & Biden) do is get rich off the people they talk about caring about."

What do you think the Bushes and all your other sainted Republicans have been doing?

Jarhead said...

Oh, you mean like all the compassion that was shown to Reagan when he was dying?

And he did more for this country than all of the Kennedys put together.

There you go, talking out of both sides of your mouth again...

Barry, I sure hope you don't get some of these posters (whom you likely know personally)..... on a jury if you are defending somebody on a murder charge.

Yeah, we should "give it up", because we should "give up" on injustice, and just "let it happen" without comment. (Sarcasm intended.) Injustice should always be commented on and remembered. In his case, injustice was tolerated by the local justice system by people who were convinced at the time that the ends justified the means. ("But he's an IMPORTANT person", etc.) Always remember this, the Nazis did all THEY did because they got caught up with "the ends justify the means" mentality, also.

Jarhead ~ Reagan did more to screw the working man than any president before him. The east coast job loss is what brought all those damn yankees here in the early 1980's. And then he fired the air traffic controllers for striking and those same scabs are there today.

Hate to fill you in jug head ... Reagan can rot in hell.

Jar, is your graphic a self-portrait?

Jarhead said...

8:58,

Thanks for proving my point.

9:02,

I suspect that's what I'll look like a few years after I die, so yes, it is my self portrait, in a strictly posthumous sense.

PART of east coast job losses back when (starting 1990) were caused by a 'jealousy tax' otherwise known as a luxury tax imposed by a democratic congress on yachts over 100,000 dollars obliterating boat building and associated industries on the east coast. This resulted in the loss of 20,000 plus jobs and untold tax money when buyers went overseas.
A funny thing- you can argue about a lot of things one way or another when it comes to dem/repub politics and economic policies. I get it but, you know absolutely a person is a liar and the truth is not in them when they whine about the economy when Reagan was in the Whitehouse and talk about what it did to "screw the working man" etc, blah,blah, yada,yada. How retarded.
I was alive and working then and you would have had to been a SERIOUS loser to not do well in that decade.

Rich like those Republicans? Teddy, Bill, Hillary, Nancy and Obama are poor? At least today I have a chance to get rich. No, you won't get rich driving a gravel truck. Neither will you get rich if the Social Democrats have their way.

Another argument, please.

Anonymous said...

Biden rich? Better check your facts! May be poorest man ever to run.

I think it is interesting that Repubs hate Kennedy so much, yet every major piece of legislation Kennedy sponsored/passed was in the tank until he crossed the aisle and got Republicans to work/vote with him. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm!

I don't condone Chapaquidic nor do I condone the 4500 dead in Iraq.
They share a common denominator..........shrouded in lies.

at least you admit your a constitutional idiot, because you have to be to be a liberal.

please check my grammer all you who cant find fault with my point.

Right 8:05AM......"Was drunk, operating a motor vehicle, and caused the death of a young man".....could be said for Laura Bush, 9:37 PM, but I bet your feeble little mind will not accept that......you can challenge me on the drunk part, but since no tests were made on either driver, it's up to speculation.

"Dough" yourself, gonecrazy, take some pics and have Barry post them. That, potentially, could be funny as heck, and I know some of the Wiseguy retards would really get off on it.

You really got your head up your ass if you think all those yankees that came here in the 1980's came because of the weather.

You couldnt find a job on the East Coast and now lets look at this other republican Leech/dumb ass Bush and what he has done to the east Coast and the Mid West. Why dont ya take a ride up to Ohio and see how the economy is doing.

Heck your dumb ass hasnt ever left Decatur ....Now get back in your rock truck and go back to work !!!

I always find it humorous that the Republicans always claim to be the ones who "know God." The same ones who are Prolife....these are the same people who are being so cruel to a dying man. Good Christian folk...and these prolifers who shoot abortion doctors. If Jesus Christ didn't judge, who are you to judge? Just my thoughts...you should be ashamed of yourself for being so cruel.

I'm going to venture a guess here, since it would be wrong to go out on someone else's limb:

Most of the people who post here are employed, playing on the internet while at work. That's not conducive to running a productive country. Yet as it all seems (in your minds) to be falling apart, you:

A) Want to blame someone else besides yourself

B) Hope for a Massiah-like leader (Obama) to save you.

It seems too many people have simply lost sight of what we all used to do when the country really was great, strong, and moral. Leaches like the Kennedys succeeded in convincing you that the government could do these things for you, and everyone else, whether they are trying or not.

I agree (shudder) with Barry that the dumbing down will continue for 50 more years. Liberalism is the cause of it. Well, TV too, but that is an ultra liberal industry.


Note: my misspelling of "messiah" is not a typo
