I'll never have any institutional power, I'll never be given a chairmanship. The only two things I have are my voice and my vote, and I have to use them as effectively as I can.
~Tom Tancredo; Rep. Colorado
The discussion picks up with my liberal friend making, yet another, swipe at the Supreme Court for stopping the Dim recounts in 2000:
Me: Yea, you would rather the Supreme Court rule that Dims continue to "recount votes" behind closed doors -- not statewide mind you, only in the 3 or four heavily Dim districts -- until they acquired enough to steal that election?
jc: So you agree that those 5 republiKan justices were correct in disenfranchising those democratic districts?
Here's an interesting article from an interesting site. Enjoy and Happy New Year!
http://www.celebjihad.com/celeb-jihad/al-sharpton-blasts-tiger-woods-for-lack-of-mistress-diversity Me: I don't agree that any district was disenfranchised, other than every US district other than the 4 heavy Dim voting Florida districts, because everyone else's weren't as scrutinized. Certainly Bush would have picked up as many votes had you recounted every chad in heavy Pub district... unless you're going to argue that the average Dim isn't smart enough to punch a ballot correctly, in which case I'd have to concede to you and you would have me!
Interesting site, wish they would concentrate more on the satire and less on celeb nipple slips though... jc: Try this:
Who was governor of Florida when they decided not to count the absentee ballots be cause it would take to long? Jeb.... Jeb... Jeb..... Jeb something.
Me: I believe he excused himself from the entire process because of lame, baseless, accusations... just like that.
Your man lost, it's been 10 years, get over it. Or maybe your just gearing yourself up for the upcoming loss in 2012! jc: As an American it's hard to take when people are blatantly disenfranchised. And to think, had Gore won, we would not be in this situation. Oh well!
Me: What makes you think Gore wouldn't had invaded Iraq, this quote:
"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to completely deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power. We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country." ~Al Gore Speech to San Francisco Commonwealth Club September 23, 2002
or maybe it was this quote:
"Even if we give first priority to the destruction of terrorist networks, and even if we succeed, there are still governments that could bring us great harm. And there is a clear case that one of these governments in particular represents a virulent threat in a class by itself: Iraq. As far as I am concerned, a final reckoning with that government should be on the table." ~Al Gore: The New York Times Gore, Championing Bush, Calls For a 'Final Reckoning' With Iraq February 13, 2002
of course if you're going to argue that Gore is as balless as Clinton then, once again, I might have to concur and you would have gotten me TWICE in one day! jc: !!!
I imagine that had Gore been president he would have let the intel reports drive his foreign policy rather than the reverse, as Bush did. Me: Seems by those quotes Gore was basing his judgement on the same intel Bush was, namely, that collected under CLINTON!
Now, if you're going to argue: well everyone knows Clinton was so preoccupied with testing the affects vaginal fluids have on cigars and caving to the Pubs and that Gore wouldn't had trusted a thing done during the Clinton admin like Bush shouldn't have. Well then my friend, I would have to concede to you a third time in a single day. A "threepeat" to end the year and what a fine year it was.
A happy new year to you, may you continue to force me to concede to your irrefutable logic, errrrrrrrrr, you did go with all three of those counter-arguments today did you not?
jc: Now you know that's not true! The president gets more than just the rumors available to ex-politicians, candidates and pundits. That is the #1 criticism agaisnt Bush and his disasrterous foreign policy.
And there was far to much made over a blow job in the Oval Office. Christ Almighty! The rKan Congress acted like a bunch of Puritanical hypocrits. Maybe the blow job would have been less anathema to those rKans if it occurred in a public restroom at an Airport (hee-hee-hee!!!!!)
But it wasn't the blow job that got him in trouble. It was that the Saint denied it and fell into the perjury trap.
No idea what you claim I conceded on. You know my position!
