Up for Debate: Tennessee voters' dilemma

Monday, October 15, 2012 at 1:09am

What do you make of the problem faced by millions of Tennessee voters whose votes seem to matter little in the presidential election? What do you predict will be the outcomes in the few state legislative races being contested? Do you think Rep. Scott DesJarlais's "October Surprise" will hurt his chances of re-election?

Moonglow1: Also, the term moocher is an Ayn Rand invention. Ayn Rand, a Jewish Communist Atheist loved and adored by the idiot Paul Ryan. Of course that ideology is dangerous for the USA.

Ryan also stated he's been to Afghanistan: well he should be there now in uniform along with all of the other neocons whom have never served.

Rah rah for the USA

If Obama continues to slide you will see a lot of articles and media pieces on racial issues. It's the card that he can always play (or have his minions play.) i can't wait until he's gone that way the next dem. won't be able to accuse anyone that disagrees with him of being a racist.

btw I still think Obama wins in Nov. To unseat a sitting president is heavy lifting. Things have to be absolutely terrible and/or have a massive scandal for that to happen.

For those who have stock in the Defense and Energy industries, Romney & Ryan are the natural choice...for those who are trying to expedite Armageddon, Romney and Ryan are the divinely blessed dynamic duo.

I can understand rich folks, Jews and Israel-loving born-agains voting for the GOP ticket...anybody else who votes GOP is voting against their own best interests.

If it's Holy War ye crave, vote for Bishop Romney and "Weiners".....they will certainly take their marching orders from the Israeli PM, not the US public.

Today is Protest Monday....I'll be manning my signage again, this afternoon....it's a lonely job....but I'm getting thumbs up signs, horn beeps etc. Folks are starting to see the connection between Zionism and eternal Holy War....it's probably too late, however, no matter who wins in November, the US will be dragged into more war at Israel's behest....after all, the Israel lobby has paid good money to gain control of the US federal government....they are getting their money's worth....and it's all totally legal, folks....anyone who dares to question this is immediately labeled as a "Jew-hater".

Ironically, Papa plays the race card while decrying people who play the race card.

No doubt, the Birther issue is race-based...no white President has ever been subjected to such an organized and orchestrated campaign to de-legitimize a sitting US President in this manner...this goes well beyond the sore-loser effect...this is racist hate-based sedition.

By: yogiman on 10/15/12 at 10:01

I'll take you advice, Loner, and stay home on election day... because I don't think they'll let me vote again after my early vote.

Wonder if I could convince them I'll vote for Barry again?

The board has gone dead?

Busy morning for me. But it is a beautiful morning here!

By: Loner on 10/15/12 at 10:08

This once-great online site has deteriorated greatly....the trolls have turned off so many visitors that the site has lost its original appeal. Intelligent, cogent and articulate posters come here, see the hate-based drivel and then go elsewhere...the NCP has become a whining platform for racist birthers and Tea-baggers....Clint Brewer tried to wreck this site, but failed...the trolls, however are much more successful.

By: Loner on 10/15/12 at 10:10

Bn: We have a forecast that calls for increasing crappiness, with intervals of partial-shittiness....very dreary.

By: Loner on 10/15/12 at 10:14

I had two teeth filled this morning....that was easier than dealing with these troll droppings....thank the Lords of Cobol, for the Troll Dropping Avoidance Mode....it makes the board a tad more bearable....but even with the TDAM, the site is no longer as much fun as it once was.....maybe I'm burning out on the NCP?

By: yogiman on 10/15/12 at 10:19

Loner,

You so readily condemn Romney when he hasn't even served one term, yet you still accept Obama when you've seen what he's done in one term. Did you know he was going to operate like he has? Didn't think so. Do you simply want to go deeper into debt?

Say what you think, but Romeny is the only one of the two whose running legally. If Obama is not questioned again and he "wins", you can kiss the USA goodbye, and unless you're a fellow communist of his, I don't think you'll like it.

I was sad to hear that Arlen Specter passed.

By: bfra on 10/15/12 at 10:54

Blanket - Thought there, for a while, you and Nemo was getting too close for Raspys comfort. He said he was thru with the site (under the Burch topic), but as usual, you can't believe anything he puts on the board.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/15/12 at 10:59

bfra, he has nothing else going on - he'll get bored and post some more. It's just a shock for him that people figured out who he is and what scams he has run. He is a scumbag that likes to take advantage of people and ride coat tails. And he calls that "the good life."

By: bfra on 10/15/12 at 11:02

Blanket - From day one, IMO, the only ones he had fooled on this board are the trolls. They lap up on his kind of BS.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/15/12 at 11:53

Right up there with the other fools those idiots believed. Remember that Dusty person? LOL

By: yogiman on 10/15/12 at 12:04

On what basis do you accuse we "birthers" as racists, Loner? Simply because you think so? Or because your favorite man is a Negro?

But you're right, no white president has ever been subjected to such an issue and you obviously don't know why. It's because he was known to be legally eligible.

Let me assure you (OK, I know that's not possible) the only reason this issue has come up is because your man has refused to show any papers to assure us, we, the citizens, he was eligible for that office. And he, and his "supporters", are the only ones who have used race as a factor from the beginning.

Barry is the first President (usurper) who went in that office refusing to prove he is in there legally, and you can bet your a$$ he would also be questioned if he was using his Caucasian side of his race.

This isn't a racist hate-based sedition except in your mind.

I've simply asked for proof he's eligible. So why haven' you just given me some and we could be having fun with another argument? Could it possibly be because you don't have any?

Indeed, slacker!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/15/12 at 2:00

I wonder if Dusty was some college kid doing a psychology paper on social media.

By: slacker on 10/15/12 at 2:15

nazi, don't think so. But if he's still lurking, he can become one quickly, using a new handle.
You may have resurrected Dusty.. lol.

I just heard that Bain is now refusing to give out severance packages to employees of Sensata who refuse to train the Chinese workers that will take their place.... nice!!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/15/12 at 3:30

Wow.....remember, they like to fire people.

Actually I think I heard that wrong.... here's the real skinny; still not any better though.

By: bfra on 10/15/12 at 3:40

That will be just a beginning if Romney is elected. He, himself, has said he likes to fire people.

By: yogiman on 10/15/12 at 3:48

brrrrk,

Bain isn't the only company sending jobs overseas. My son-in-law was offered a damn good package to go the India and train the taking over his job. Needles to say; he told them to take the job and shove it.

There is very few jobs in manufacturing today. About all that's left is maintenance and service. What is it the Chinese are building now; federal bridges and highways? Who gave them those contracts?

I think if you'll look behind you a little bit, the jobs started transferring overseas when Bill Clinton was in office.

It's funny, you guys can find one fault after another against Romney but I haven't heard of one fault over Obama even though he's taking us into bankruptcy. I guess he's doing in such a smooth way you haven't even noticed it, huh?

Loner,

This morning your mentioned the "birther" issue as being a race-based issue. Tell me, do you know where the term "birther" became an issue and where it was "invented"?

If you want to find out, check those 51 facts I posted earlier. You might be surprised.

If you all aren't socialists or communists, you had better wake up, bfra. With your [if I don't know it, it isn't so] attitudes I'm afraid you're going to be surprised and likely shocked when Obama sinks in to your thick skulls.
