Asunto: Re: After all, when has a policy of appeasement ever NOT worked?
(V): "So.. stating something that has been seen to be true in many cases"
But in this case (the one I was talking about) a charge of racism is leveled by someone wielding power and influence to attack a police officer, who did nothing wrong. No politician in his right mind would try pulling a stunt like this, but this is who we have had as president for 4 years and will have for another four.
But at least he's not hiding under his desk, and has learned how to hide in plain sight. He's been running around complaining that Republicans won't work with him, but refuses to sit down to actually meet with them... to work with him. (?) And when Republicans submit a budget or anything they've authored Harry Reed just sits on it... like a hen sitting on an egg.
Maybe it's a game, and the Republicans are supposed to chase after Obama... and if we catch him, then he'll sit down and pretend to seriously negotiate in good faith. Yeah, that must be it... he's playing the 'catch me if you can' game.
Asunto: Re: After all, when has a policy of appeasement ever NOT worked?
Iamon lyme: Depends on who the appeased are. The Nazi's, Iranians, Egyptians, various South American governments who are supported and placed despite being nasty bully killer types.
"He criticised the police for being racist, then held a news meeting with both sides for the purpose of repairing his own image."
So.. stating something that has been seen to be true in many cases. .... .... The Met police in the UK was found to be institutionally racist.... it's being "robustly" dealt with, but that word "robustly" seems to be the in word at the moment for meaning jack.
Asunto: Re: Obama started off embarrassing himself (and us) by going on his world apology tour
The Col: "This part of the world enjoyed it, and found it refreshing ..I don't think anyone considered it an "apology tour" other than Republicans"
Who are you referring to when you say "This part of the world"?
Of course only Republicans would call it an apology tour... and only Democrats would see it as something that can improve relations between the US and people who regard the US as their enemies. After all, when has a policy of appeasement ever NOT worked?
Obama started off embarrassing himself (and us) by going on his world apology tour, and interjecting himself into news stories that have nothing to do with his job as president. Like the time he commented on a black professor who ran afoul of the law. He criticised the police for being racist, then held a news meeting with both sides for the purpose of repairing his own image. But now he's settled into doing what he does best, making speeches to promote what his party wants. I think this is mostly what he will be doing from here on out. It's either that or hide under his desk for the next four years.
I thought Obama was Carter on steroids, but it's actually the other way around. The difference between Carter and Obama is like the difference between watching a train wreck in real time and watching it in slow motion. Carter created so much havoc in so little time it shocked the voters into making a drastic change. Obama on the other hand just plods along, putting himself in front of the cameras so as to keep us busy focused on peripheral issues.
Republicans have made the mistake of thinking they need to do more than simply hold the line. They will probably lose more ground than they will gain in the next four years no matter what they do, but at least voters will be able to clearly see where the Democrats are taking them...and they will have to decide for themselves if that's where they (the voters) want to go.
Asunto: Re:What?!?!? Harvesting green farts was MY idea!! I knew I should have patented it
Iamon lyme: I've already patented a removal of nappy mess system. I bought a load of non used mechanical meat stripping machines (the ones who strip meat of carcases) to recover baby poo. Then it is processed into fertiliser.
Asunto: Re:Hey, don't hate us just because we're gorgeous!
Artful Dodger: No kidding, you would be surprised at some of the "technology" that has been pirated by the 'you know who'... It's not just the high end stuff. A few years ago someone in California went to court to sue (to sue who, the Chinese government?) over a particular type of packing material and design he developed for packaging electronics. He discovered the same packaging material and design was showing up in US markets, but it wasn't his stuff.
But that's not what I wanted to talk about. I had something important to say about farts, but if we keep this up they might have to rename this the Gorgeous Men Farts board.
(V): Hey, don't hate us just because we're gorgeous!
It's been so long ago now that I've forgotten what it tastes like. It probably made me gassy, but everything I eat does that so it's not really relevant or even worth mentioning... Obama is an incompetent moron.

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Department of Public Safety has updated an online statement advising female students to consider a variety of unusual actions if they are attacked, including vomiting, urinating and claiming that they are menstruating. The advisory was updated Monday evening, just hours after the Colorado state House of Representatives passed a package of gun control bills that includes one that would make it illegal for people with concealed weapons permits to carry guns on the campuses of public universities.
