  • Clinton Camp Says It Has No Dirty Secrets About Obama

    Welcome to the real world, people!!

    Billary will probably be our next prez...whether we like it or not. The Clinton’s are nasty, sneaky people. One way or another, between the two of them, they will lie, cheat, cause havoc to get her elected. I, on the other hand, may find a home in Australia, New Zealand, etc.

    Maria S to anyone
    If you think this stuff is made up, trot yourself out and buy copies of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. And don't miss Lone Survivor, written by a real, live SEAL. It is almost unbelievable what these lunatics are capable of. People who have to sell their older kids to orphanages so they can have enough money to feed the little ones, Taliban buys them, uses them up, then cuts their throats or teaches them to blow themselves up. These are people who live in the stone age, have bullies who drive around with their AK-47's, and areserving the devil. What a foolish bunch of people we are to think that Islam is a religion of peace. Men using little boys in shameful ways, then killing them, men killing women for showing their ankles. I don't think many of us knew about Islam until 9/11. It's a sad but true story...there are now about 4 Islamic enclaves in this country. They are all teaching their children to hate Americans, Christians/Jews, and how to destroy this country. I am not a conspiracy nut; I just watch and listen. And I know what is going on in different regions of this country. I just hope the average freeper is ready to take care of him/herself when the stuff hits the fan, because I think it will in the next few years. And I really wish that American muslims would stand up and fight this idiocy.

    Two words that irritate me:

    1. Awesome...some people apparently know no other word to express their feelings of being overwhelmed by something.

    2. More importantly...should be “more important”. Importantly is apparently used to make one feel more important.

    I posted this because 19-year olds like Tommy Creek are few and far between. I went to the same schools, lived in the same poor neighborhood of Amarillo, Texas...just a little earlier than Tommy.

    LANCE CORPORAL THOMAS E. CREEK is buried in Llano Cemetery, Amarillo, Texas, and will be honored, along with many other veterans, on Memorial Day, 2007.

    Thomas E. Creek "stood and delivered"; he was both courageous and selfless. He saw what needed to be done to save his brothers and did it.

    His last words? He saw the grenade, and right before he fell on it, he said, "I've got it, Matt."

    “IMHO I think they dropped Stone because he is not “touch,feely” enough for today’s audiences. People want feeling, the sympathetic sounding voice with personal and pitying sounding words sent out in a pitiable way. Stone reported the story, no elaboration and with no identifying touchy, feely words or body language. In my second humble opinion, I think he is the most handsome man ever to be a reporter for the MSM. Good luck Stone!”

    I second your comments. I really enjoyed his delivery on various stories. A side note: several years ago, it was announced that his wife had MS. Maybe that’s one reason they’re moving to another home. So she can get around her home more easily?

    “I guess it’s a good thing for Romney that he’s not running for president of the UK.”

    Ding! Ding! I think we have a winner!

    Exactly what does the behavior of a mormon in the UK have to do with the average mormon in this country?

    Seems to me this little story is the start of a smear campaign against Romney.

    “Dr. Angelou”

    Exactly which renowned university did said “Dr.” graduate from? What was her Ph.D in? Or was this one of those gratituous things wherein people are given honorary degrees?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Oh, “Dr.” Angelo still a madam and pimping young black women?

    “She’s pregnant? I didn’t know that. I’ve tried googling that info, but come up with a blank. Do you have a source?”

    Nothing specific; I heard a couple of different commentators mention that she was going to have another child (she already had a little girl named Molly). And the Iranian government scolded the Brits at one point for allowing a pregnant woman to serve in the military.

    “Maybe this is an indictment of having women, or at least moms, in these situations.”

    No kidding! Not to mention that the woman in the group was pregnant with another child! I do have a certain amount of respect (not much, but a little) for the men who were with her.

    Use the little knob on your radio and turn to another station if you don’t care for Michael Weiner (Savage).

    I tried to listen to him (on the recommendation of a friend), and found him a total nutcase. I don’t know if he drinks, smokes, etc., or maybe he’s got some kind of bi-polar disorder. I couldn’t take the yelling and screaming.

    If I had the opportunity, I’d recommend the following book to Rosie O’Donnell. It probably wouldn’t change her mind, but it just MIGHT make her think a little differently.

    by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

    This is the autobiography of the Somali-born woman who became a member of the Dutch parliament, and collaborated on a film about domestic violence against Muslim women with controversial director Theo van Gogh. He was assassinated, and she has a price on her head now. Her narration on Islamic culture is shocking; the way the women are treated is beyond disgusting. She was subjected to genital mutilation and later forced into an unwanted marriage. She is about 37 years old now, is a strong woman, and gives a real picture of the so-called religion of peace.

    No American woman would stand for the treatment that these women of the Muslim world have to endure!

    Total includes $26 million raised since Jan 20, $10 million transferred from successful senate reelection campaign

    Hillary Clinton's campaign today announced it will report $36 million in total receipts for the first fundraising quarter, which ended March 31, 2007. The staggering number reflects the strength of support for Clinton from every walk of life and every part of America.

    "We are overwhelmed by the tremendous enthusiasm and historic response this campaign has received so far," campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle said today. "Going forward we are poised to continue this success and make even more history."

    Specifically, the campaign noted several key numbers demonstrating the overwhelming depth and breadth of Clinton's support:

    $26 million raised in new receipts since launching her campaign on January 20

    80 % of the contributions were $100 or less.

    $4.2 million raised on the internet (including $1 million in a week during the One Week, One Million campaign, and nearly $600,000 online in the 36 hours preceding the deadline)

    $6 million in total grassroots donations (internet plus direct mail and telemarketing receipts)

    50,000 donors (tens of thousands of them new donors)

    Contributions received from residents of all 50 states (plus Washington, DC)

    $10 million transferred from Senator Clinton's successful senate reelection account

    In March of 2003, the highest total reported by a Democratic campaign in its first-quarter fundraising report was $7.4 million and the top four candidates combined raised just over $23 million. In March of 1999, incumbent Vice President Al Gore reported $8.9 million for his first quarter.

  • Just handful of officials show up at state funeral (Ford)

    Maria S to trumandogz

    As usual, The Washington Post never misses a chance to put a negative spin on Bush et al.

    This was NOT a state funeral; that will be on Tuesday, and President Bush will be speaking. More than likely, the Clintons, Pelosi, etc., will also be there. Saturday night was set aside as a time for a few of President Ford's friends and former associates to eulogize him. In case no one noticed, the place was packed...

    "I have never, ever even heard of an enemy like this one."

    Ever heard of MOHAMMED? He, the brave soul who took as a bride, a 6-year old...didn't actually TAKE her until age 9. Read up on Islam, Mohammed, and how brutalthey are. A bunch of so-called spirituals; men who love to brutalize women, kids, and other men. The so-called "Koran" is the biggest piece of plagerism ever written. Good, old Mohammed could neither read nor write; it just came to him in a vision and he had others write it for him.

    Please take not offense at this rant...just find out what Islam is all about, how they treat women, etc.
