A joking matter

Seems that Sarah Palin respects Glenn Beck so much that she has hinted at a Palin/Beck 2012 presidential run. Oh God, how I hope so.

As fragmented and divided as the Republican Party is now, it's an extreme possibility .

When I heard this I became hysterical with laughter and thought if she really wants to be successful she could round out a sure-to-win ticket by appointing Rush Limbaugh as her secretary of state and Bernie Maddoff as her Secretary of the Treasury, along with Lou Dobbs as Press Secretary.

It would be a disaster, but a laugh a minute.

Blanket, to me the Bible is a work of historical fiction. Quoting from it is no different than quoting from any other book.

Interesting. It appears Reid's not sure he has the 60 votes needed to even bring the bill up for debate.

Chief, old news...again...you must be slummin' today...maybe you should investigate the problem with air traffic control this morning...that story is only about four hours old...

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:05

Gdia,

Old but pertinent news...or do you just want everyone to keep quiet about it?

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/09 at 12:09

So was the Water Gate Break in Old but Pertinent News.

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:11

Nemo,

A good analogy if you are considering the Watergate breakin as old news a year later...which of course it was not.

Thanks for the help.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/09 at 12:12

Then we have Iran-Contra. Not to forget "I did not have sex with that woman."

By: house_of_pain on 11/19/09 at 12:13

"I did not have sexual relations with MamaG's sister..."

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/09 at 12:14

Water gate is older than a year. Boy where do you get your news?

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:16

Nemo,

Ah me...Watergate was not old news a year after it occured.

And this happened this week...hence it also is not old news.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/09 at 12:17

Let not get in with any sex talk house. cheif will think we're makeing a play for him. LOL

Nemo,

I wouldn't want you making a play for my dog, much less me.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/09 at 12:21

Yes chief Nixon try to keep it a secrte,. It took a year for the truth to come out. That that was pretinent old news.

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:23

Nemo,

Well this happened this week...and is worth reviewing, if nothing else. Particularly considering the subject in question.

By: dargent7 on 11/19/09 at 12:23

Chief: "I'll wait for the election, thanks..." Hey, dufus, we HAD an election last November, 2008. Obama won, hands down, yet you spend every waking minute and post trying to drag him down. Is that your mission? Like FOX News, you actively undermine the current President. You'd think an upstanding Boy Scout, self proclaimed Christian, right-wing Republican like yourself, would be saluting our President at every turn. The man WON. You are a treasonistic traitor to the electoral process. You profess rule of law, yet only play with cheap shots against a sitting President. Wriggle your sorry ass out of this one.

=================================================================

See there you go chief. Thinking that I am makeing a play for you. I'm not that kind of a guy.

Not that there is anything wrong with it.. But you NEVER. yuck

Tell me does your dog like it when you two play?

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/09 at 12:28

When you you guys think cheif well began to whine-post that we are picking on him?

By: gdiafante on 11/19/09 at 12:29

"Hey, dufus, we HAD an election last November...Obama won..."

Well said Dargent...pay attention Chief...or do you think we should just be quiet it? LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/09 at 12:30

oops someone replaced well for will.

By: gdiafante on 11/19/09 at 12:30

s/h/b quiet about it

"You are a treasonistic traitor to the electoral process. You profess rule of law, yet only play with cheap shots against a sitting President."

I don't remember Chief saying Obama "stole" the election, like so many others on this board. And, only in dictatorships is criticism of a President's actions and policies considered treason.

Are we in a dictatorship yet?

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:34

Dargent,

"Hey, dufus, we HAD an election last November, 2008. Obama won, hands down, yet you spend every waking minute and post trying to drag him down. Is that your mission?"

More like posting what going on in Washington and evaluating what is and is not being done. Don't like that huh? Too bad. He DID win but that doesn't mean I have to agree with every single thing done there. I only have to live with the results, same as every other American. And like every other American, I can complain about what is being done that I do not agree with. Just because he won the election does NOT mean he gets a pass on everything he chooses to do up there.

"You are a treasonistic traitor to the electoral process. You profess rule of law, yet only play with cheap shots against a sitting President. Wriggle your sorry ass out of this one."

So...NOW dissent is traitorous...UNLIKE how you dissented under Bush? Please. I am no more a traitor for disagreeing with what Obama is doing anymore than you were for disagreeing with what Bush was doing. So stow the treason garbage for someone else because I'm not buying it.

Psalms 109:2-5

2 for wicked and deceitful men have opened their mouths against me; they have spoken against me with lying tongues.

3 With words of hatred they surround me; they attack me without cause.

4 In return for my friendship they accuse me, but I am a man of prayer.

5 They repay me evil for good, and hatred for my friendship.

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:36

Gdia,

"Well said Dargent...pay attention Chief...or do you think we should just be quiet it? "

Oh say it as loud as you can...and I will wait for the NEXT election, thanks.

Hay stupid Obama did not steal the election.

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:37

Blanket,

Picking and choosing from the bible too?

By: gdiafante on 11/19/09 at 12:37

Sure you will Chief, lol

While you're waiting, could you check me out? I needed some Coke...

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/09 at 12:37

yep, just like a good Christian would.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/09 at 12:38

actually, i was putting what CAH posted in context. so technically it was CAH who was picking and choosing.

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:38

Nemo,

"Hay stupid Obama did not steal the election."

Neither did Bush. Regardless, if I choose to complain and disagree with our President, then that is what I will do. Just as you have the right to agree with him, I have the right to disagree.

By: gdiafante on 11/19/09 at 12:40

Sure you do Chief, and you can "stow" your delusions of persecution.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/09 at 12:40

Did you wet your pants when you posted this? LOL

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:41

Blanket,

I see. I was just curious as you say you don't believe in the Bible, and so was surprised you were quoting from it.

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:43

Nemo,

Nope Sorry. I don't do that when posting like you do. Don't forget to have your plastic mat under you while posting today...you know what a big mess you make.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/09 at 12:43

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 11:41

Chief is a reactionary, Nemo. He's surprised at everything.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

This is your best? chief I told you that you would be better off not looking the fool..if you did not try comebacks.

However you do seem to know what to do about posting and wet mat. LOL

By: Dragon on 11/19/09 at 12:47

Nemo, no one said "stupid Obama" (sic) stole the election. But Dargent accused Chief of treason against the "electoral process".

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/09 at 12:48

lmao slacker.

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:48

Nemo,

Of course I do...I watch you every single day!

By: chiefpayne568 on 11/19/09 at 12:50

Obama arrived on the base 3:19 p.m. local time (1 a.m. Eastern Standard Time) and received a rousing welcome from 1,500 troops in camouflage uniforms, many holding cameras or pointing cell phones to snap pictures.

"You guys make a pretty good photo op," the president said.
