Up for debate: The State Fair

Monday, February 11, 2013 at 4:48pm

The Tennessee State Fair is the subject of wrangling between Metro and the state. The newly appointed state board has told the Metro Fair Board that it must offer a lease to the state's appointed non-profit. The Metro board has asked for more money. Who's right?

Well, you knew it was only a matter of time before the idiot would compare the President to Hitler. As if you had any credibility before...

No wonder you are so easily duped by conspiracies...you see your little part of the world starting to constrict...no wonder you miss the days of your youth, when white supremacy reigned supreme.

It's embarrassing to me, as a human being, that you even exist. On the bright side, you won't be here much longer so at least my children will only have to hear tales of neanderthals like you, and not have to actually see it for themselves. That's progress.

I've had enough of your stupidity. This is the last time I will address such a pathetic excuse for a human being that I've ever encountered (and that include's Raspy) and I encourage everyone else on this site to join me. Enough is enough.

That sounds like a good plan, g. He adds nothing of value to the conversation.

What did you think of the SOTU?

By: gdiafante on 2/13/13 at 8:49

I didn't see it, blanket. At the hockey game. I saw the highlights and Rubio guzzling some water...lol

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 8:49

Also, do you think the body in the burned cabin is really that of Christopher Dorner?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 8:55

Well, it looked like Boehner was crying again toward the end.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 8:57

Obama did get a few zingers in during the speech - he said that he wanted to create new jobs and he knew that the people who represented their districts also wanted it because he saw reports of them appearing at some ribbon cuttings - lol!

By: bfra on 2/13/13 at 9:07

gdiafante - Great comment & I also agree with everything you posted.

By: gdiafante on 2/13/13 at 9:07

Ha!

I did see the part where he was saying that the victims of gun violence deserve a vote. Yes they do. Any bets that Congress will?

Nope. I'm just glad that NBC didn't pan Ted Nugent during that segment. He doesn't deserve the attention.

By: BenDover on 2/13/13 at 9:14

Looks like the LAPD executed this guy. I hope it was Dormer and not just some guy they woke up with a flash-bomb grenade.

By: gdiafante on 2/13/13 at 9:14

I was only watching the highlights, but did expect him to yell out something when Obama started in on the subject. I think a few people did, but I couldn't make out what was said. You could see Boehner look towards his right, as if the shouts were coming from the gallery.

By: budlight on 2/13/13 at 9:16

Yogi, when Hitler was performing his heinous acts, there were many deaf, dumb and blind people in Germany also. Or else why would Hitler have been able to kill so many "unwanted people" such as gays, Gypsies, Jews and others he deemed unworthy to live?

Blanket, if other beliefs are going to get people killed, we should not embrace them. What do you say to the fact that Muslims do not tolerate gays very well?

Have you ever even looked up the vanderbilt professor who said that very fact? Did you even know that gays are not tolerated by muslims?

The POTUS said he wants to "create" job. Did he give one fact about HOW he would do that? Name one thing he said that was an actual fact for creating jobs. (I thought so). Can you say "ordinary RHETORIC"?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:18

Ben, I agree. I wonder if they would every own up if the DNA shows the body is not that of Dorner.

g, I couldn't hear it either but I was totally expecting him to yell out something. I have no idea why they would allow him to attend based on the threats he made prior to the last election.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:22

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:24

sorry about the double post.

bud, I still don't see your corrolation between Hitler and Obama. Maybe because there isn't one.

Yes, Muslims are not tolerant of gays but neither are Southern Baptists or Church of Christ or Jehovah's Witnesses.

And the Jobs Bill would create jobs if the republicans would try to work in a bipartisan manner to pass it. I don't call that rhetoric.

By: budlight on 2/13/13 at 9:25

The guy in California is a hero to some. He is a coward; a man who shot an innocent woman in cold blood. He never wanted to change anything or make anything better. He is a zero; a cold blooded killer; a coward. He did not want to face people and talk things out. I wanted them to get him alive so he could face the music and a trial and a jail cell. People who admire him are shallow and calloused.

Yogi, did you google Dr. Benjamin Carson? He was the lead physician who performed surgery to separate the conjoined twins some years ago. He is a leader and an awesome man. Did you see his speech at the National Day of Prayer meeting? It was awesome. Too bad the left wing, liberal media didn't talk about his speech and his zingers!

And blanket, the DNA will be that of the coward cop killer. If not, I'm sure the search will go on, but I believe it was the cop killer. And the innocent female victim killer. I will not say his name because he does not deserve it. And if it is true that he had female hostages in that home who escaped, that is awesome. And probably a good reason not to face other criminals in jail. Those women deserve a medal if it's true that they escaped.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:26

Investing in green energy would also create jobs. Did you miss that point? He named specific companies - isn't that direct enough for you?

Yes, Muslims are not tolerant of gays but neither are Southern Baptists or Church of Christ or Jehovah's Witnesses.

Muslims openly call for gays to be killed. Show me one doctrine or proclamation or other document that calls for killing of gays by any other so-called religion.

AND did you ever see the vanderbilt professors comments confirming they do not deserve to live? Just answer the question.

I do not think I compared obama to hitler; was comparing muslims. So are you saying obama is a muslim?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:29

I sincerely hope it is the DNA of the killer. I hate to say it but I don't have much faith in the LAPD based on their track record.

By: BenDover on 2/13/13 at 9:30

Blanket you keep making these moral equivalents with the Muslims and modern civilized society. Honey... you need to give your predispositions a break and look at what's going on.

Women, Gays, Libs... they're ones first against the wall when their revolution comes.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/13/13 at 9:30

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/12/13 at 8:40
Ben, what's your solution? Become intolerant of other beliefs?

Blanket, if the tide was turned and it was Hitler who was bringing in his beliefs, would you be so tolerant? My guess is yes.

Leave it to bud to get Religion mixed up with someone that had no religious beliefs other that White is Right. Hitler, gee bud get a life.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:31

Oh for cryin' out loud, bud. This is why I usually don't try having a conversation with you.

Nevermind, you're about as bad as yogi.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/13/13 at 9:32

By: yogiman on 2/13/13 at 7:14
Could your beliefs be because Obama's ideas are equal to Hitler's, budlight? If not, why is he creating his [private army]?

Remember yogi you are the idiot.

Ben, I don't carry the same paranoid, fearful view of the world that you do.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:34

Ben, you fear some unrealistic Muslim invasion through incessant breeding. I view a GOP who wants to control what goes on in the bedrooms of consenting adults and wants to control women's healthcare issues as the realistic threat.

By: Rasputin72 on 2/13/13 at 9:35

This little forum is absolute proof that people who cannot meet their own own life expectations will lash out at those who are more capable, more successful and genetically better endowed.

Believe you me, this little forum is infested with lifes losers.

I even read a post by one of the underclass poking fun at Prince Charles.The final analysis was their envy for his birthright.

If any liberal wants to argue "all men are created equal" I do.n't think using the majority of those on this forum as proof would be a good presentation.

Scream and howl, though they often do, at the end of the day they retreat into the life that is their reality.

By: BenDover on 2/13/13 at 9:35

LAPD is the future of American police Blanket. They've become militaristic with their attitude, weapons and practices just like much of the rest of the country. If it's not him then it's just collateral damage to them like the others they have killed on this man-hunt. The guy was contained and likely could have been waited out and brought into custody for civilian courts to sort out... but, "Burn that f*cking house down!" was the order of the day.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:37

Ben, that's more paranoia from your little world. The LAPD has been corrupt for decades. That is nothing new.

By: Loner on 2/13/13 at 9:38

We are discussing the Dorner case here:

I left this post there:

I Googled it...these words rhyme with Dorner: boerner · borner · corner · doerner · foreigner · former · forner · goerner · hoerner · horner · hornere · hornor · koerner · korner · mourner · orner · swarner · thorner · warner · woerner · worner

Gotta be a rap tune in there somewhere....here goes:

It was a lyin' foreign-borner....done in officer Dorner...

Got him in a corner...became a forlorner...

Cops cuttin' corners...now we got mourners...

Whadya think?

By: BenDover on 2/13/13 at 9:38

I simply look at what Muslim controlled countries do to their people around the world Blanket. Your supreme value of 'tolerance' is a quick casualty to Muslim dominated societies.

By: budlight on 2/13/13 at 9:39

blanket, i dare say you probably won't look this up, but if you do, there is no doubt this muslim v'bilt professor means what he says about killing gays. he said it. Not me!

“Tolerance”: Vanderbilt Muslim Professor Says Gays Must Be Executed

By Debbie Schlussel

Kudos to brave, smart, patriotic Vanderbilt University student, Devin Saucier, who heads up Youth for Western Civilization. He is an example of citizen activism that we all must undertake to expose the savage threat we face in this country. And I hope we see more of him and others who emulate what he’s done. Saucier confronted Vanderbilt Professor Awadh A. Binhazim and asked him if he approves of the Islamic requirement for executing gays. Dr. Awadh responded that he must agree with all the dictates of Islam, including that one. Watch the video, below."

Watch the video, if you dare.

And GREEN jobs? Please reconcile that the green companies obama gave millions to have gone bankrupt. Or didn't you hear or read that?

I'm sure you think LAPD is not so hot. After all, they did hire this cold blooded killer at one time. He had no real reason for killing that innocent young woman and her fiance (or anyone else for that matter). To some like you, he is a hero. To me, he's a zero, coward, cold blooded killer. I wish he had lived so he could face people that he put in jail. Cowards kill themselves in his situation.

One proven fact, dumba$$: If Rasputin72's is equal to me mentally, that means he is far superior to your mentality. And you're proving it every day.

You have been nullified old boy. Your opinion is worth less than yogi’s.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:42

When did I say the cop killer is a hero? You are a delusional idiot. I have cops in my family and have the highest regard for what they do.

OK, no more trying to talk to a moron who can't deal with facts.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:43

Ben, I still think you're paranoid. It fits in with the rest of your absolutist, irrational, unrealistic Libertarian thinking.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/13/13 at 9:44

So you admit to be a loser, old boy. We all knew this the day you started your lying.

By: Loner on 2/13/13 at 9:49

Ben, tolerance can be offered to others out of love, not just fear....strength, not just weakness.

Do not equate tolerance of Muslims in the USA with weakness or fear....your pastor may have misinformed you about the nature of tolerance. For born-agains, that part of Christ's message was left on the cutting room floor.

Extending loving tolerance to our fellow human beings is part of the Golden Rule...we all want to be tolerated, so let's tolerate each other....in loving tolerance....as members of one human family.....we need to get past racism, tribalism and the "us versus them" mentality, if we are ever going to journey to the stars and fulfill human destiny.

If love can conquer hate, we will make it as a species, if not, the Biblical prophecies of Armageddon...Doomsday.... will come true.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/13/13 at 9:51

Ben, I know you have an unholy hate for the police, but I don’t think you can say that Americas Police Departments are anyway like the L.A.P.D. However I would not want to live in L.A. because of them.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/13/13 at 9:52

Blanket bud is seeing her ass again and thinks that is the way of the world.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 9:52

I agree, Nemo. I have all the respect in the world for policemen and the sacrefices they make but I would not live in LA due to the LAPD.

By: BenDover on 2/13/13 at 9:55

It's a trend Nemo... they are all becoming more para-military madd-maxish... in attitude, tactics and actions. LaVergne has a flippin' SWAT team, for God's sake.

By: BenDover on 2/13/13 at 9:55

Loner equated me earlier to Hitler for my reservations about the advance of Islam across Western Europe. I'll need now to regard my friend loner as Neville Chamberlain... the influential apologist who ignored all the warning signs of Hitler's advance.

I'm not like Hitler, old friend. It's the Muslims and radical Islam that are oppressing and killing those who do not convert to their mind-set not me.

By: budlight on 2/13/13 at 10:00

Oh blanket, you'd move to LA in a heartbeat if the price was right. And all LAPD cops are not bad, just like all Muslims are not bad.

But you did not address the prof at v'bilt who says gays should not live. Review the video and get back with me. Or are you afraid to view the video for fear the truth might just sting, or set you free about your fantasy that muslims don't want to kill us - infidels (including those who are for gay rights). I didn't invent the idea, blanket. They did.

And Ben, you are correct. Loner got it all wrong comparing you to Hitler.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/13/13 at 10:00

So, Ben - in your opinion, the "para-military madd-maxish" police departments wouldn't gun down the Muslims?

By: Captain Nemo on 2/13/13 at 10:05

Ben the only trend I have been seeing is a mad rush is by civilian to by weapons of war. There is a shortage of ammunition in this country because of this madness. Even the police have to wait.

If there is a trend in the Police Departments in American, maybe it is do to this insanity that is taking place.

Ben perhaps you should distinguish between Muslims who believe and Radicals who use a religion for political gains. I do with so-call Christians. You would not come off sounding so bud or yogish.

By: BenDover on 2/13/13 at 10:14

The moral equivalences do not hold Nemo. You need to study a bit more.

By: Loner on 2/13/13 at 10:20

Hitler and the Nazis dehumanized the Jews...then they demonized the Jews....then they concentrated the Jews....then they worked them to death or simply shot, drowned, burned or gassed them.

Things are more subtle today.

Thanks to the advent of Zionism in Palestine, the old wounds of the Crusades period were reopened....the UN's ill-conceived Partitioning of Palestine, without Arab consent, and the subsequent Jewish colonization of appropriated and stolen Arab lands created a huge backlash in the Muslim world. Holy Wars broke out..."terrorism" became the new buzzword".

The Jews and the Muslims are now at each others throats and Christian America is bankrolling, arming and defending the Jewish state....as a result, Arabs and Muslims in general are being dehumanized and demonized here in the USA; those are the first 2 steps toward genocide.

No, we won't see concentration camps and gas chambers and ovens this time around...the traumatized Jews are self-concentrating in Israel and they have a nuclear arsenal...and the Samson Option...this time around, the horror will be quick, widespread and massive....Holy Wars Suck....we are being sucked into the black hole faith-based hate....it's too late to escape the gravitational pull of Armageddon.

Loner, a lot of our "Christian Crusade" mentality was fed to the American public during the Cold War as a way to demonize those secular communists. It also plays well in getting the American public behind the Zionists. Two birds with one stone, as they say.
