She neglected to mention sweet ice tea. Whenever I’m up north at a restaurant I always have this little moment of sadness when I realize I can’t order sweet ice tea.
Speaking of wingnuts…
Then of course there’s Ron Paul…
And then there’s Daryl Issa who wants to find the truth, just not yet…
#3 And wouldn’t you hate to be a right winger trying to decide whether or not to root on the devil incarnate (the ACLU) as it sues the Obama administration?
#4 Issa will have to quit lying if he releases the whole transcript.
Indeed. It was an eye-opener going to a restaurant in Ohio and learning “iced tea” was weak tea over too much ice without any sugar.
from the coal bin….. gdad, your frightened because the aclu is coming after one of your own. time to climb back in your bunker.
More left wing lunacy from Orwellian Oregon! Now Sandwiches are racist! You can’t make this stuff up!
It is so interesting that Suzie’s “socialist president” is getting so many complaints about his making less rules and regulations than any president since 1993, has upset numerous environmentalists for the lack of climate change rules, getting complaint after complaint over his support of the Patriot Act surveillance, and complaint about his keeping 95% of the Bush tax cuts. He continues to maintain strong pro-business policy and ha pushed for growth in the stock market, housing, and jobs even when the GOP refused to help. The Bush Recession Food Stamp and unemployment is coming rapidly down as the Obama policies continue to work..
Obama has been and remains the most moderate president since Eisenhower. The GOPTP propaganda has been proven time and again to be pure BS. Moderate on the economy, moderate on the military, moderate on social issues. He remains strong on National Security. It becomes more clear everyday that the GOPTP claims of socialism was and is racial propaganda based on Obama being African American in an attempt to make fools believe he will favor African Americans over Caucasians. This has been a sad lie that continues to be espoused by the Susies of the GOPTP.
Good stuff already about tea…here’s one more note. I remember Lewis Grizzard or another Southern writer saying, “You know you’re too far north when the cornbread is sweet and the tea isn’t.”

“t becomes more clear everyday that the GOPTP claims of socialism was and is racial propaganda based on Obama being African American in an attempt to make fools believe he will favor African Americans over Caucasians. ”
Only in your fevered imagination. The only people who talk about his race are the “Our maid is like one of the family” racist Democrats and Joe “you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy” Biden.

You’ll have to excuse Henry for the ignorance he displays above. You see, I’ve personally kicked off a number of RWers from this blog who referred to the president using the n-word, and Henry never saw those, because those posts never got approved, and he gets ALL his info here.
So it’s not Henry’s fault. Place the blame on my heavy-handed censorship!
Dan, indeed, but there remain the GOPTP like Henry who believe their code of “socialsim” (their belief that Obama as President would “give away the farm” to African Americans) is not racist. They remain amazing!
I doubt any conservative used the “N” word in a post here. I’ve certainly never seen nor heard one do it.
#16 “I’ve certainly never seen nor heard one do it.”
Did you REALLY just post that? What a dolt.
Wow. If there ever was a sports comparison between liberal and conservative ethos, look no further than this year’s NBA finals.
You have the worldly self-absorbed media darlings Miami Heat, represented by the mega-hyped mega-tatooed, kids-out-of-wedlock-with-the-live-in-girlfriend LeBron James vs the low-key team-oriented San Antonio Spurs embodied by the quiet unassuming cerebral family man, Tim Duncan.
The Heat comes from glitzy celebrity-strewn trashy-chic Miami Beach; the Spurs from a city carved out of the rugged SW Texas.
Last night, the good guy conservatives absolutely destroyed the me, me, me Heat.
Take a gander at this Heat player. You won’t find any freaks like that on the Spurs:
Duncan has won more games and more championships, than LeBron will ever dream of. But you won’t find many Spurs #21 jerseys in the African-American ghettos. See, our liberal culture pushes trash and flash. Not brainy stuff. Duncan, I’m sure, acts “too white”. And unfortunately, our school system and our media does nothing to dissuade this harmful racist stereotype.
Denial is the river you right wingers live on.
#18 Good god, I had no idea I was rooting for a conservative team!!
“family man, Tim Duncan.”
You mean the one who apparently is in the middle of a messy divorce?
Tim Duncan, however, is one of the best ever when it comes to basketball.
Did you REALLY just post that
Yep. It’s true. I don’t remember the last time I heard a conservative use the N word, if ever. The last several hundred times Ive heard it, it’s been by blacks themselves, who are almost always liberal.
Dan @ 1:55 posts ” You see, I’ve personally kicked off a number of RWers from this blog who referred to the president using the n-word, and Henry never saw those, because those posts never got approved”.
9 min later, suz posts “I doubt any conservative used the “N” word in a post here. I’ve certainly never seen nor heard one do it.”
Thus ends your conservative reading comprehension class for the day. The rest of you kids run along; suz will be staying late sitting in the corner wearing the dunce cap.
Tim Duncan is currently involved in a rather messy divorce and has stated he wants the prenuptial agreement upheld. (What does the Catholic Church say about prenups? We know divorce is wrong according to Catholic doctrine.)
Duncan also says Magic Johnson was his childhood idol.
#21 As Steve C said. Unless, suzie, you’re accusing Dan of lying when he says he kicked off right wingers who used the N word in posts he didn’t allow to appear.
So which is it, suzie, are you accusing Dan of lying or are you just unable to comprehend what you read?
I don’t recall ever hearing a conservative say the N word anywhere at anytime, Steve C, not just in here. Sorry you didn’t read my post carefully. Now try on that dunce cap. LOL.
Suzie, I agree with you. I haven’t heard that word, first hand, come from anyones’ mouths other than black people themselves, in probably 40 years.
obama’s poll numbers are dropping because of all the white racists.
Just look at the Gallup data, and I’m sure you libs can find rich white conservative racist men to blame for obama’s short-comings.
Where do the GOPTea Party folks find these guys?
Ron May | June 12, 2013 at 8:42 pm
I think they have a secret lab with a mad scientist who is cloning them.
Granted I am no sports fan, but when did Basketball become a game of two?
Yep, Frank. The notion of the conservative racist is a fabrication of the left. They are the racists.

I’ll just say from my experience Dan has been untruthful regarding the contents of posts he’s deleted.
More right wing hypocrisy: Hannity goes from defending Bush’s “spying” “staggering to me we are even debating the use of these techniques in this country even at this time.” To screeching over the Obama “spying”, claiming “anarchy and tyranny will follow.” Typical!
“I’ll just say from my experience Dan has been untruthful regarding the contents of posts he’s deleted.”
This, from the poster who claimed here to have read Wealth of Nations as extra credit for a low-level econ course, and to have admired it greatly, until we reminded her right here of its contents, kabosh!
I delete posts for a number of reasons. One is the n-word or other racial epithets. Some are other bad words, like the s-word, the f-word, the mf-word and others.
And sometimes I delete them because they serve no purpose whatsoever other than simple bickering.
Some posts of Suzie’s, a minority, get deleted. A majority of pammala’s do. And I’ve deleted stuff from Terps, Steve C, gdad, Warren and others, too.
I’m truthful and transparent about this.
Good lord, Dan, given what you let through by pammala, I’m sure as hell glad I don’t have to see what you delete.
I’ll just say from my experience that Dan is at minimum 100 times more honest than Suzie.
See? Right here. A complete lie repeated over and over. At no time did I rave about Adam Smith or Wealth of Nations, and nobody can find the link where I did, because it doesn’t exist. I just said I read it. That’s all.
A provable example of Dan’s dishonesty.
Since I’m anonymous, as you incessantly gripe about, you have no way of knowing, do you, Bertha?
As that is all Gdad does, you should be deleting a majority of his posts. Glad somebody shut him on the other thread up on the stupid “i never said I went to church” thing.
People can read the original thread and decide how much you “rave” about Adam Smith or his book, you so sweetly called “TWON” and wanted Dan to give away to his readers.
So, Suzie is your real name?
Big Brother? Big Deal.

Last one. The twenty most dangerous conservatives and their organizations.
joe biden thought this should investigated…when Bush was President…as Bill says…’WHAT SAY NOW..?’
is joe as hypocrite now or then?
artiebooboo- any link from a site called ‘political carnival’ is just what it says nummy….figures
small avatar – big pinocchio nose there artie, that means he’s a liar…so you agree then. good, it’s about time.
Good job, Sandi. And it wasn’t even on the boss’ time. Are you going to bill him forit? I was basically saying TWON was better than the pap they are teaching today. Dan repeatedly claims Smith was pro-union, but that’s false. Smith deeply distrusted unions.
And yet another lie from Dan.
It may or may not be. Is Gdad his real name? How about ColdnP? Pirengle? How come you don’t whine at your fellow liberals for posting under the cloak of anonymity?
Last one. The twenty most dangerous conservatives and their organizations.
Let’s review one more time what conservatives are for:
Protection of the lives of the most defenseless among us
Less power for themselves.
Who could oppose those things? Only he folks who want MORE power for themselves. The far-left, the socialists, the communists. And of course the morons who don’t know better.
‘mega-tatooed’. Yep. Three times definitely makes it a ‘true spelling error’.
“Glad somebody shut him on the other thread up on the stupid “i never said I went to church” thing.”
I simply got tired of exposing your lie over and over. And of you refusing to produce your nonexistent “evidence.”
Another fine example of GOPTea Party membership…
#33 Hannity has his terms crossed. How can anarchy and tyranny happen at once? Isn’t anarchy the absence of government and tyranny oppressive power exerted by government? Maybe it’s me that’s confused of the definitions of these words, but they don’t seem they could happen at once as they aren’t synonyms.
suz @ 7:58,
“It may or may not be. Is Gdad his real name? How about ColdnP? Pirengle? How come you don’t whine at your fellow liberals for posting under the cloak of anonymity?’
Oh, I don’t know, maybe because we’ve been introduced to CnP and Pirengle already? Kind of takes the point of whining about anonymous posters when you see they actually have a pulse and a drivers license. Maybe if you got out more Sandi wouldn’t be walking you like a dog on all fours and making an ass out of you all the time. You know she totally owns you, right?
I do not “whine” about anyone’s anonymity until they attack me from the safety of it. My friends here do not do that. And NONE of you right wingers have to, you just want to because that safe hiding place makes you brave.
Your need to lie, distort, fantasize and dramatize makes your need for anonymity clear, yet you still have the gall to attack people as if you owned some integrity. When I said, in my experience, Dan is easily a hundred times more honest than Suzie. You chime in with the ignorant idea that I “have no way of knowing”. Anyone who is honest, reads your posts and knows their butt from a hole in the ground knows you are not honest. We prove it often enough that even you know it.
Honest people don’t sing praises for a friend who lied under oath in order to secure a spot on a jury, nor do they give a lesson on how to ‘lie without really lying’ in order to be selected for a jury.
