Alfred Clarkson: the only person I've ever known to stand at my right.

Cherry Clarkson: an independent, centrist, liberal Republican.

Please, don't get me started on "so-called Christians".

Hypocrisy from a christian causes steam to come out of my ears! I absolutely cannot tolerate a two-faced person claiming to be Christian and acting like a sex starved, political renegade, two-faced, lying provocateur. Jim and Tammy Baker are the first two names to pop out in my mind.

Crying and asking their parishioners for forgiveness. That's above their pay grade. The only one who can give forgiveness is the "Big Boss".

Thanks for allowing me to rant. I always feel so good when I get the bad stuff out.

Oh, one other thing. Crazy is not a synonym for Republican. It is a synonym for politician.

Aren't crazy & republican synonyms??? The great thing about me is that I DO NOT WANT my friends to always agree with me!!! If two people always agree one of them is always giving in!!!!!

I have voted Democrat all of my adulthood but I have a few ULTRA conservative friends....I am VERY liberal. That's what makes for friendship....agreeing to disagree & still remaining friends!

I may step on a few toes too...I do tend to be rather blunt about EVERYTHING! I'm very opinionated & OUTspoken but a few people have actually been able to endure & still be around for me!!!

I tell it like it is & if you can't take...aw well!
Don't ask me something you don't want the true answer to.

So I believe Bob, I may be in good company here & we can still talk politics, just know you are always wrong! emoticon

Obama has always had my vote & short of bombing a house I can't see how he possibly lose it!!!

Russ,

You totally crack me up. You are the most uppity person I've ever known . . . oops, uh, well, I guess, didn't you live in San Diego? I thought you might be Mexican Amer . . .

Forget everything I've just said.

For those of you who don't know, I am a hard rock Republican.

My Dad was a "vote the Party ticket" Democrat.

As a Senior in high school and as a Freshman in college, I worked for the California Young Democrats. Made phone calls, licked letters until my tongue fell off, stuffed envelopes until the blood from paper cuts started to show and parked cars at Party events. I was COMMITED to the party.

Then I noticed that the cute girls had "other" jobs. They brought drinks to the Party bigwigs, their butts bumped into a lot of hands (I know, clumsy), and were often asked to go on "cruises" with Democratic state Assemblymen (no women allowed there), Senators, local "big money" donors, and National Democratic figures.

Then I learned of the sex and drugs and booze on the "cruises".

The next time I was asked to volunteer, I responded, "No. Not only NO, but He|| NO!"

The next day, I went to our local YD headquarters and cornered our YD Advisor, and at the age of 18 (I had skipped a grade), I was told to use my brains and see how the real world worked.

I was very disillusioned. My girlfriend had gone on one of those "cruises", and when I asked her about what went on on the "cruise" she wouldn't give me a straight answer, then got defensive and angry and asked if I "didn't trust her"? I never spoke to her again.

Being young and naive, I couldn't believe both parties could be exactly alike. I stayed away from working for anyone in politics for a number of years, but voted Republican all the time.

For the past four Presidential elections, I've voted for my brother, on a write-in basis, for President - and my wife, also on a write-in basis, for Vice President.

The negative advertisement, from both sides, makes me sick. For every negative thing that you can find out about one candidate, you can put something similar on another candidate.

Make a positive statement and explain how you will get that passed. Personally, I don't believe any of them.

Remember, I'm a rock hard, ultra right-wing conservative (and no, I don't believe in removing the clitoris from females. I don't believe abortion should be used as a casual form of birth control and I do believe the male progenitor should be REQUIRED to contribute fairly to his off spring. At my left shoulder stands Genghis Khan, directly to his left is Rush Limbaugh. All of that aside, it is my opinion that Senator Obama is the best choice for President, but Joe Biden is like the worm in the apple Eve gave Adam.

Looks like my brother and wife will get at least one write-in vote apiece again this year.

If I have alienated a Democrat or shocked a Republican, I apologize. There is a plausible reason for my rant. I have been certified as crazy. So much so that I am the Co-founder of the largest team on Spark (you'll have to look it up - then you'll know and understand).

Russ and I are friends, the first part of this, I was just yanking his chain as he has done with me on more than one occasion. I'm sure, I hope, that he knows he is/was not the target of any of my rant.

A gray cloud came over me and took control - I heard nothing but the constant sound of "little, cat feet".

Bob

Ron Paul came out and said he wouldn't endorse McCain, based on the philosophical differences they have. BTW I thought he would have made a far more compelling choice than McCain.

No prayer of that since he never had money but I do like how honest he was today. And I doubt we'd ever had heard the name Palin if he was the nominee.

Uppity, elitist....GREAT, I'm all for it!!!! Didn't being an elitist used to be a good thing???

FYI, Palin passed a law in her city to make rape victims pay for their own rape kits-$500-1500!!! Good way to say rape has declined in your area....not bad enough you've been raped now let's CHARGE you for it!!!!!!!

If your ovaries are saying Palin, you might want to consider a hysterectomy....because in a few years might not have any rights to your own body anyway!!!!

Oh, I like the 'my ovaries want me to vote Palin' line.
Right.
I also love your addition, Russ. Thank you for putting the proper spin on all of this.
Whatever.
Oh, please, please, please, let's not hear too many fools say 'why bother to vote, there is no difference' this year. Oh, please, please, please, yes, there is a difference, there is, there is. It makes me want to scream.
That some people act like having McCain and Palin win would be some great step toward change because she is a woman...

So who will have the most effect on the election? The uppity negro, the uppity broad, the crazy old coot, or the crazy old coot?

Pity there's no uptight WASP in the mix.

What we really need is a REAL ignernt hickabilly, not just a brainless poser.

That was all meant to be tongue in cheek, and does not necessarily reflect my real opinions on anyone involved.

I'd run for office, but I'm fond of my soul.

I love the list: I added a bit to the bottom of one of the points:

* If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs commi ttees, you don't have any real leadership experience and you're being "uppity"

thank you so much for this helpful list. You see I was having a hard time figuring out who to vote for because as we all know my ovaries demand Palin - the news told me so! Now that I know she really is a true american with all those spectacular values that matter so much, well sign me right up. Hey, do you think she can make opening day a national holiday?

Just for some info & humor....NOT to offend ANYONE!!!
Tho if it does offend, please do not write to me because it is of no concern to me.

I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight.

* If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're "exotic, different."
* If you grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, you're a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack, you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
* If you name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick.

* If you graduate from Harvard Law School, you are unstable.
* If you attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs commi ttees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.
* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.* If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system, while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very respon sible.
* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's.

* If you're husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.
