Ah yes, "Bareback" Mountain or is ir "Pillow-biters Pass?"
Neoleftychick, any comment on corruption?
Perhaps it's appropriate to note in this post that Abramoff "swung both ways"?
Nice try Shab.Democracts who recived money did so via Abramoff's clients. Big difference there. After Enron when tits up, Bush was asked how close he was to Kenny Boy, and Bush said, all he knew about him was that he had given money to the Democrats once. Yeah right. Not actualyl a lie, but he failed ot mentino that Lay had given teh GOP abotu ten times as much asn that he was almost as tight with Bush as Geoff "MilitaryStud.com" Ganonon.There's not getting around the simple fact remains that the Repugs control both houses, so to lobby Washington, and push legislation your way, means to lobby the Repugs.
Sorry, Adamo, anyone who resorts to calling the other side "Repugs" loses the deate.Did "sheeple" elect GWB and JWH?
A little bit of selective outrage Shab?I don't hear you complaing much when lefty calls Arabs, towel heads. You're just pissed that I filled in the blanks.Are you a Republican? If so I, take it back.Can I count on you to jump in and slap anyone on the wrist in future who refers to the left as commies and what not? What about those who lavel critisism of Israel anti-Semitic?
addamoWhat ARE you on about? MORE Muslim whingeing? What is your problem? Muslims where towels, and sometimes rags or tea-towels (like Yasser Arafat) and sometimes ingenious combinations of shower curtains and postal devices (letter boxes) on their heads all the time.If you think it is demeaning take it up with them!
neoleftychick said..."and postal devices (letter boxes) on their heads all the time"That's an good description of the garb I've see some Orthodox Jews adorned with. Not to mention those weird things they do wih their hair.
addamoI could not agree more. Those nutjobs banging their heads against walls could do with a thorough coat of Pea Beau or Mortein! But while they just stand their head-banging they ain't hurtin' nobody.
You crack me up Lefty. But yes, you have a point.And added to their many talents, they are usually very entertaining. Nothing beats overhearing these guys arguing with each other.
addamoIs it true that Torah scholars are all paid a stipend by the Israeli government just to bang their heads against brick walls 24/7? If so, we should tell the ACLU!!! Surely this breaches the US Constitution church/state separation!!What a great retirement pension for Metallica fans!The ACLU has tried to have school vouchers banned from being spent at US religious schools. But then again, maybe the US Constitution does not extend to funding OTHER state/church nexii
Neo,In the greater scheme of things, it's hardly an issue eitehr way is it? I mean, if church/state seperation is a concern, I owud be more interested in Pat Robertson being on the gravy train with regard to donations for charity organisations involved with NO.Pat Robertson's charity was one of the few that was given the green light by the Bushies, to be the recipient of tax dedutable donations. Imagine my surprise!!
