"He said I know this is going to be lead to some, quote, difficulty for the guys who work on those rigs.
Well, if he thinks that some guys on the rigs are the only people that are going to be affected by a six-month oil moratorium, hes out of his cotton-picking mind."
(Excerpt) Read more at newsbusters.org ...
what did he say about pick’n cotton? lol
QUEUE up the kid screaming ....”Thats racist”
“Cotton-picking”?? That’s RACIST!!!
Oh wait- Reed’s a liberal, right?
I don’t think President Hussein knows how an industrial society runs. We can’t go back to hunting and gathering.
I had no idea that “cotton pickin mind” had now become a racist insult. It was always just a euphemism for people who didn’t want to say somebody was out of their “G -D” mind or even out of their (obscenity) mind. It may have been meant to rhyme with “frickin.”
Oh well. I guess if you look hard enough, you can find “racism” anywhere.
Ya know... it didn’t occur to me at first that “cotton pickin’” is inherently racist, it’s used as a minor epithet so much that it has lost its underlying meaning.
‘Out of His Cotton-Picking Mind’
I wish I were in the land of cotton......
Historically, who picks cotton in the U.S.?
Did he ever have a mind? He is a empty suit being controlled and directed by the Communists of America, his Administration. We have been taken over by the real power in America, corruption, criminals, and the free loaders.
There will be some left wing outrage, once they get the green light that Newsweek’s Julia Reed is a Republican from New Orleans and not a liberal Democrat just because she once lived in NYC and was editor of Vogue.
He also thinks he #@$*&$! in high cotton.
“My feet stink, but yours are rotten,”
For some folks, saying "That's a pretty cloud" can be inherently racist -- that's how they view the world.
My brother-in-law as a child in rural North Carolina picked cotton. But he’s Swedish, so that probably doesn’t count. :-)
LOL - that’s just wrong.
John Deere ;^)>
When it comes to criticizing their own for racism, the Left is quite niggardly.
Riddle! What’s black, slick and out of control?
Some guys actually were charged with a hate crime for spreading cotton balls on the lawn of some “perpetually aggrieved” student center.
Seeing as how my white grandmother and white grandfather both picked cotton, I'd say race ain't got nuthin' to do with it. Scrooo 'em.
Obama has no idea how easy it is to cripple a local economy - like the gulf states region ... he’ll know soon.
“Are you out of your cotton pickin’ mind?”
Childhood memories come flooding back, ususally involving us needing to get dad to rescue us from some crazy situation we got ourselves into.
Reid said what?
OH NO HE JUS DITINT!
It can't be Obama. He's not slick - he's a bully.
Not Reid - Reed. Can't you read?
They wanted this to be charged as a hate crime.
Probation set in cotton case
Students plead guilty to littering.
“There will be some left wing outrage, once they get the green light that Newsweeks Julia Reed is a Republican from New Orleans and not a liberal Democrat just because she once lived in NYC and was editor of Vogue.”
Dude are you serious, Julia Reed was a regular guest on Al Franken’s AirAmerica radio show, and has substituted for Rachael Maddow on MSNBC in the past. She is hardly a conservative or a Republican.
...the term 'cotton-picking' originated in the southern states of the USA, where it is usually pronounced cotton-pickin'. It began life in the late 1700s and differs from the 19th century Dixie term, 'cottonpicker', in that the latter was derogatory and racist, whereas 'cotton-picking' referred directly to the difficulty and harshness of gathering the crop.From Here
Julia Reed is reasonable for a Vogue editor writer and has some southern charm but she is a liberal by FR standards.
She is actually from Greenville Mississippi...a handsome woman
I suppose the Mod on deck would zot Mark Twain, too, credited with having written the first great American novel.
After Moby ****. (How’s that, your modness?)
I use to think I was a cotton planter earlier in my life, but I have never cut cotton or heard of it.
Yeah, I read the link.
It simply means that you have rough hands from the difficulty of the task.
If the effected are hard working non union member entrepreneurs, they are the left’s enemies.
When you're a racist, like those on the left, you'll see EVERYTHING through the prism of race, and see racism in EVERYTHING ...True! NAACP Urges Hallmark to Pull 'Racist' Card From Shelves
Yours is an excellent synopsis of what the left is all about. I might use this when speaking to some of my lefty associates, if that’s ok.
The trouble ain't that there is too many fools, but that
the lightning ain't distributed right.
~ Mark Twain ~
is this a major MSM organ implying that a black man is occupationally best qualified to pick cotton???
Racism is alive and well in the MSM........
