Obama approved then Gibbs condemned Wanda Sykes’ Over The Line Attacks on Rush Limbaugh

On the now Infamous Wanda Sykes incident of calling for the death of Rush Limbaugh and calling him the 20th 911  Hijacker…

Barack is videoed as laughing… thus approving of the over the line trolling.

However, when public condemnation caught up with the Enchanted One, Robert Gibbs the Presidential Press Secretary,  condemned Wanda Sykes.

..then following suit, so did the Liberal women on air on The View and so did MSNBC’s Keith Olberman on air, who himself often crosses the line.

Watch “Rush Limbaugh joke crossed the line”

Bill Bennett on air on CNN called Sykes on this and called Donna Brazile on rationalizing and defending Sykes then citing not to do so would invite attacks on herself from Sykes, and failing to understand the damage done to everyone when the line is crossed by calling for the death of Rush and falsely accusing Rush of being a 911 Hijacker… Particularly in the supportive presence of the President and on International Television.

Bill Bennett also rightfully called Michael Savage out for doing to a GBLT caller on his radio show what Sykes did to Rush Limbaugh in the most public venue possible.

Bill Bennett: Wanda Sykes’ Comments “Way Beyond Indecent”

And, despicably, CNN copped out and failed to side on the side of decency yesterday. That is just part of the reasons CNN’s prime time ratings are in the toilet and continue to plunge.

Wanda Sykes showed her mentality as a sociopath and a national level Socialist Troll and she is rightfully being called on it by her own side of the aisle. And, if she has apologized for it I have not seen it.

In my view, the incident, which directly implicates Barack Obama, was even more damaging to Obama than ScareForceOne making low altitude “strafing” runs on Ground Zero in New York City frightening 10s of thousands of survivors of the 911 attacks.

Additionally, on the subject of crossing the line… the GBLT Socialist Trolls got set back on their heels yesterday when Miss California was confirmed as keeping her title and affirming that the nature of the publicly aired GBLT/Socialist Troll vile personal attacks on her were over the line.

There is nothing wrong with people opposing same sex marriage… it is their right to do so without public Troll personal vicious attacks on them.

  1. Foxwood says:

    The Michael Fox comments were another example of Rush taken out of context. Worse yet, it was lied about.

  2. billalmighty says:

    hello fox

    foxwood said:

    The Michael Fox comments were another example of Rush taken out of context. Worse yet, it was lied about.

    no, fox…i didn’t misunderstand him.

  3. billalmighty says:

    he asserted that michael j fox was intentionally not taking medication, or purposely exxagerating the symptoms of his disease.

    he also called iraq veterans who support troop withdrawl “phony soldiers”

    i didn’t misunderstand that either

  4. billalmighty says:

    rush is an offender for a living

    it’s fair turnabout when the offender gets offended

    besides, they are both entertainers, not political representatives

    who really cares?

  5. billalmighty says:

    already have, but thanks

  6. Foxwood says:

    I care it he is misinterpreted.

  7. billalmighty says:

    haha

    well let’s take rush’s word for it

  8. Foxwood says:

    He did not even make fun of Michael. That was a doctored piece. I watched that show and the remade version. You’ll believe doctored evidence?

  9. Foxwood says:

    I’ve no time for misunderstanding. I got to get ready for work.

  10. billalmighty says:

    no thanks. rush is an entertainer, not a politician.

    he pisses on people at will and laughs about it.

    i’m not trying to shut him up, but i certainly don’t feel bad or sorry for him

  11. billalmighty says:

    lol

  12. billalmighty says:

    poor rush

  13. billalmighty says:

    everything offensive rush has said can be explained away as a misunderstanding,

    but wanda sykes’ joke means that she literally wants him to die from kidney failure and thinks he is a terrorist?

    someone please explain

  14. billalmighty says:

    it musta been something i said again

  15. billalmighty says:

    buh bye

  16. VotingFemale says:

    sorry… I was called away on the phone.

    let me now catch up with the comments here then I will respond.

  17. rosehips says:

    did everyone leave.

    good morning vf!

  18. Foxwood says:

    If you don’t wish to read the other point of view, you wish to live in ignorance.

  19. VotingFemale says:

    Bill… I do not agree with or support Rush on everything he says and some of the things he says is over the line, imo.

    That he has gone over the line imo does not justify anyone’s calling for his death or calling him a 911 hijacker… all that does is creat a greater wrong.

    I had to teach my boys, as most children are taught… two wrongs do not make a right.

    And… even Rush knows there are lines that are not to be crossed. He states his opinions on behavior of others… he does not call for the death of any socialist over political differences of views and opinions.

  20. VotingFemale says:

    Attitionally… Sykes making so-called “jokes” about 911 is so over the top it is incredulous… regardless of who is the target of the so-called “joke.”

    Doing that has damaged Sykes…

  21. billalmighty says:

    vf – it was a joke, not a call for the death of….

    this has been blown waaay out

    did you see miller time on the factor last night?

    dennis put it in proper perspective

    fox – i’m pretty open minded

  22. billalmighty says:

    and don’t get close to calling anyone ignorant, fox, or i’ll sick VF on you

  23. billalmighty says:

    i’d call that a foul

  24. billalmighty says:

    can we debate without getting personal?

    please?

  25. VotingFemale says:

    Comedians are held accountable for going over the line… when it happens they get no pass from the majority. This is why Robert Gibbs condemned the 911 “joke.” That condemnation sent a message to the liberals… not all liberals understand nor will agree. That is their problem.

    Miller does that a lot… and for whatever reason Miller does it in this case appears to be self-serving on his part. Dennis Miller stated his opinion on it as have you and as have I.

    There is public censure of Sykes to the point… and in my view it is justified.

  26. rosehips says:

    Foxy, it’s hard to defend Rush when the subject is about personal attacks on people. but you are making a great effort so I commend you.

    vf, thank you for being my friend.

    I hope I can still be free to speak my mind as long as I keep that line in mind.

    Can I point out that wanda only said she hoped rush’s kidneys fail? Many people are kept alive on kidney dialysis so technically failed kidney’s are not a death sentence. But saying that about anyone is cruel and tasteless and although she is a comedian and I think we need to take her words with a grain of salt, I think she should apologize and put the incident to bed. but it should not be put to death because that would be too cruel. lol
    I think Obama’s reaction was polite laughter which sometimes in the moment is understandable and in retrospect can be understood. At least he didn’t stand up and applaud enthusiastically. But I am sorry that I went over the line with my reaction to your comments and promise to temper my comments to the best of my ability. Personal attacks are uncalled for from either side.

  27. Foxwood says:

    I’m sorry, but I’m not going to kiss and make up…

  28. VotingFemale says:

    Rose… speak your mind. We debate here…

    What is the point of a one sided debate?

    None…

  29. billalmighty says:

    nice, fox.

    this is my third try to debate in this blog.

    you know what they say about the third time….

    see you all later

  30. VotingFemale says:

    Bill… don’t overreact else you miss your change to state your side.

    Fox did not call you ignorant. he commented:

    Foxwood said

    If you don’t wish to read the other point of view, [then] you wish to live in ignorance [of the other point].

  31. billalmighty says:

    fuck that

  32. billalmighty says:

    this is ridiculous

  33. billalmighty says:

    enojoy yourselves

  34. rosehips says:

    bill, please don’t go. we need you here to keep things balanced.

    foxy, are you saying that rush didn’t say that fox was exaggerating? Do you think fox was exaggerating? I think maybe he was. That would be effective. I’m not convinced that he wasn’t, but I think it was a low blow to suggest it without proof.

  35. rosehips says:

    i just watched a video and I can’t see how you can say it was doctored. It is very evident that he said fox was exaggerating.

  36. Foxwood says:

    Maybe the work should have been apologize and not sorry… I was trying to be funny not make things worse. But then again, look up the definition of ignorant.

  37. Foxwood says:

    lets try it again,

    Maybe the work should have been apologize and not sorry… I was trying to be funny not make things worse. But then again, look up the definition of ignorant.

  38. VotingFemale says:

    Rose, I hear your point that kidney failure is not automatically a cause death… but it is a cause of death in cases and it is a most serious serious health issue.

    I compare that to someone wishing Michelle Obama contract double breast cancer. While breast cancer is not automatically a cause of death it still causes death and it is a serious serious health issue.

    If Sykes is unrepentant, that is her choice… if certain liberals want to give her a pass on it… that is their choice.

    That Sykes’ behavior damages the Socialist party is understood by the presidential administration, if not in foresight, then in hindsight.

    I can not stop people from shooting themselves in the foot and others giving them a pass to do it.

    I have stated my views on all this… and open to debate it and gives others of differing views the opportunity to present their take on it.

    Ultimately there will have to be an agreement to disagree if consensus is not achieved.

    rosehips says

    Maybe the word should have been apologize and not sorry… I was trying to be funny not make things worse. But then again, look up the definition of ignorant.

    Can’t get the ‘word’ out.

  40. rosehips says:

    so just to be clear, are any personal attacks ok, or just one’s that call for injury or death?

  41. Foxwood says:

    I apologize to Bill, he took I’m sorry the wrong way. But I saw the first online airing of the video and the doctored video. I know what happened. Might say I was there.

  42. rosehips says:

    because I think we all have made personal attacks in the past and we can all agree to cease and desist them now. We could also allow personal attacks on Fridays so we don’t repress ourselves too much. hehehe

  43. Foxwood says:

    Look up the word ignorant, Rose. It’s not derogatory, I will abstain from the use if necessary.

  44. rosehips says:

    foxy, you didn’t answer me. If you saw the original, did rush not accuse fox of exaggerating?

  45. rosehips says:

    foxy, I was not saying your use of ignorant was over the line. You didn’t come out and call bill ignorant so it wasn’t a direct attack. It’s like my ex used to say that what I did was stupid but because I took it to mean he said I was stupid I was somehow taking his words out of context. How stupid of me. lol.

  46. Foxwood says:

    VF, I apologize. I meant, I was not going to give Bill a hug and a kiss for being sorry, but that ‘I’m sorry’ would have to do… Apparently I was not clear.

  47. VotingFemale says:

    And as god is my witness… anyone I see calling for Obama’s kidneys to fail or for any physical harm to come to him will meet with my disapproval and heat.

    …it is over the line.

  48. Foxwood says:

    No, he said fox didn’t take his medicine and made the commercial more effective, not in those words tho.

  49. rosehips says:

    or we can draw the line of personal attacks at physical injury or death, which are taboo and shouldn’t be used.

  50. rosehips says:

    can I say I hope obama gets a hangnail? Because if he does it may distract him from doing something I disagree with like sending more troops into Afghanistan.

  51. Foxwood says:

    I apologize Bill.

  52. Foxwood says:

    I have to go to work.

  53. VotingFemale says:

    Understood Fox…

    Bill… and olive branch is extended from Fox.
    Let’s all try not to be overly sensitive… including me! 😉

    Foxwood says

    VF, I apologize. I meant, I was not going to give Bill a hug and a kiss for being sorry, but that ‘I’m sorry’ would have to do… Apparently I was not clear.

  54. rosehips says:

    only kidding vf. sorry to make a joke about it. I hope you don’t get mad at me…. :-\

  55. rosehips says:

    foxy, that is kind of callous if he can’t prove it, don’t you think?

    foxy said: No, he said fox didn’t take his medicine and made the commercial more effective, not in those words tho.

  56. VotingFemale says:

    No one said Sykes is not allowed to say what she said… all anyone I see is saying that going over the line inflicts self-damage.

    I am not preventing Sykes from doing anything on her own dime.

    rosehips says

    I don’t allow iTrolls to comment on my blog… I do not prevent them from trolling elsewhere.

    And do I see their trolling behavior as inflicting damage on themselves? yes I do…

    they are totally powerless to hurt me… only people I care about have the power to do that.

  58. rosehips says:

    anyhooo, to change the subject…I am glad to see infoaddict joining us. I hope she comes back although I understand her needing to get out of the infocave. hahahaha

  60. VotingFemale says:

    I am glad to see infoaddict joining. I need her wordpress link so I can add it to the community list.

  61. Jean Lindsay says:

    How do I add the link?

  62. VotingFemale says:

    Rose… people who care about each other often hold each other up to a higher standard than they do people who are not important to them.

    It is human nature… that is part of the price of friendships and in romances.

  63. VotingFemale says:

    Hi Jean!

    just copy and paste the link in a comment and I will add it to the list, dear.

  64. VotingFemale says:

    There is also a way to create the username infoaddict so that shows up as your user name when commenting.

  65. Jean Lindsay says:

    VF – This dog has a cat friend. Her name is Bruce – a moniker selected out of ignorance. Never thought when I chose SAMHENRY as my name and one of my dogs, Sam Henry that I might make a cat feel nervous. You seem pretty much a cool cat.

  66. VotingFemale says:

    I love dogs, Jean.

  67. Jean Lindsay says:

    SAMHENRY – is that what you’re after? I thought it had been recognized by the system as such. Looks like my name is. I don’t think you can change that, alas, unless I create another account – am I correct?

  68. VotingFemale says:

    You do not need to create another account…

    wordpress allows you to create a nickname for your present account.

    that is why I show capital letters V and F in my username when commenting even though my account name is all lower case.

    I just added a nickname with the correct capitalization.

    Do you wish to use the user name Infoaddict? you can ease…

  69. Jean Lindsay says:

    SAMHENRY is very relaxed that you like dogs – I am an old dog but Sam is young and has his natural hair color. It stands up on end when comedians go over the line. They are well aware what it is. Just like the envelope – they like to push it.

  70. Jean Lindsay says:

    I think I have now got my nickname.

  71. VotingFemale says:

    yeah… I also push the envelope from time to time but have limits and boundries I do not cross.

  72. Jean Lindsay says:

    Moi as well but Sykes let hers drop off the desk into the trash.

  73. VotingFemale says:

    I agree with you Jean

  74. VotingFemale says:

    what is the name of your wordpress blog, Jean?

  75. rosehips says:

    I hear you vf. I can sometimes forget that and that is why I have failed at romance and sometimes fail at friendship too. My discretionary skills are somewhat lacking.

    getting past the hard times is hard but people do it every day and people fail at it every day as well…

    In my esperience, that is why, in the most important decision of all… choosing a mate for life… it is critically important to choose loyalty and sensitivity to pain of others as two must haves… and it must be mutual.

  80. VotingFemale says:

    Jean, you dont need a wordpress account to comment. I must have misunderstood your comment on my previous blog post that you already have a wordpress account.

  81. Jean Lindsay says:

    VF – I DO have an account and I don’t seem to be able to post as anything other than Jean Lindsay. I will contact mission control and have things rectified. I haven’t set up a blog because I am trying to limit how much time I am on the computer. I like to be part of other people’s blogs. If I maintain my own, I will be up all night and as it is, I am into that already.

  82. rosehips says:

    yeah vf, I failed miserably with that decision. live and learn.

  83. LisaInTX says:

    Good Morning Everyone!
    Welcome Infoaddict aka Jean. :-}

  84. Jean Lindsay says:

    VF following up on your relationship comment – I agree. Further, I think that both sides have to be vulnerable which exposes your true self in a positive way and allows constructive criticism as well as love and understanding and forgiveness to really get inside. To be vulnerable in this sense is not to be weak but to be receptive and to be able to give properly. If it is abused, then you are not dealing with a real friend or spouse.

  85. VotingFemale says:

    Jean, understood… you have a comment only wordpress account… not a blog account.

    I suggest you consider converting it to a blog account and just leave it inactive if you wish.

    that way you can set up a nickname that you want to use.

  86. VotingFemale says:

    Good Morning Lisa!

  87. Jean Lindsay says:

    My final comment about relationships is the both parties have to come at it from a position of balance. If one side is clingy and will not let the other out of his/her sight then balance is lost. I think a healthy coming together as friends or lovers is one in which independence is still a part of the equation.

  88. LisaInTX says:

    VF
    I think RESPECT is truly the key of having long relationships. If you do not respect the other person, then love withers and dies eventually.

  89. LisaInTX says:

    Bill
    Fox is right. Rush did not say that about Michael J. Fox, it is just another twisted out of context SPEW by his detractors.
    This is from the link that Fox provided above, a worth time read to learn the truth.

    “Democrats are lying to sick
    people about cures for what
    ails them. It is cruel. It is
    mean. It is full of false
    hope. It’s a classic dirty ad.”

  90. rosehips says:

    Lisa, what did rush say about michael j. fox?

  91. rosehips says:

    oh and btw, lisa…good morning!

  92. VotingFemale says:

    It is said… “you always hurt the one you love” and I think that is because love is vulnerability to be hurt. Thoughtlessness, things said in anger or when intoxicated thus not in command of good judgement, and misunderstandings all spawn bouts of hurt in both directions… making up and dealing with matters at hand is a skill.
    To keep a friendship or romance is sometimes hard work… walking away is easy for too many.

    Jean Lindsay says

    VF following up on your relationship comment – I agree.

  93. rosehips says:

    and re: relationships, choosing mates, and respect.
    I got married for the wrong reasons. I did not respect my mate. I was planning to leave the relationship. But then I got pregnant. I know I made a mistake. So I had to make a choice. I didn’t feel strong enough to go it alone and didn’t want to abort, so I got married to a man that I knew was not the right choice for me. In the end, I was right. So what should I have done?

  94. LisaInTX says:

    I’m not sure I’d say the word Democrat, more like Social justice seekers….?but in most cases regardless of what they are labeled, it is to further their agenda, not really help those that are ill. IMO

  95. rosehips says:

    lisa, I’m not following. are they saying that stem cell research won’t cure some diseases?

  96. LisaInTX says:

    Rose
    Rush was talking about the quote above if I remember right and that they were using Michael J Fox popularity to help push their agenda.
    http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/eibessential3/mjf0.guest.html

  97. rosehips says:

    and what about rush’s statements about mjf? I saw a clip of him saying that michael was exaggerating his symtoms. Do you think that the video was doctored? Can msnbc do that legally?

  98. rosehips says:

    lisa, (and foxy too) Did you see the original video of rush’s comments about mjf?

  99. LisaInTX says:

    Rose
    That is the way I understand it. They are making statements that if ONLY stem cell research could be done, then Michael J. Fox would be cured.

  100. rosehips says:

    that link you and foxy posted doesn’t tell me much of anything. Why doesn’t rush just post the original video so we can judge what he said and what he didn’t?

  101. Jean Lindsay says:

    VF said: To keep a friendship or romance is sometimes hard work… walking away is easy for too many.

    This is very true today. People want instantaneous results, pleasure, and return policies. They are turning other people into objects like TVs. People don’t want to work at anything today and relationships ARE the hardest to work at other than keeping a job to support it today. Loyalty is such a big factor. Ask Elizabeth Edwards. But since she is herself loyal and they have, until recently, had an open relationship, her forgiveness is very meaningful and honest and one can hope that the other half will reapond in a positive way to this caring stance. If he can run away from her and the kids, anyone else who gets involved with him should be on notice it can happen again.

  102. VotingFemale says:

    …used birth control pills.

    And yes this scenario plays out every day as it did with Palin’s daughter. But she has supportive parents.

    rosehips says

    and re: relationships, choosing mates, and respect.
    I got married for the wrong reasons. I did not respect my mate. I was planning to leave the relationship. But then I got pregnant. I know I made a mistake. So I had to make a choice. I didn’t feel strong enough to go it alone and didn’t want to abort, so I got married to a man that I knew was not the right choice for me. In the end, I was right. So what should I have done?

  103. rosehips says:

    lisa, we were talking about Rush’s insensitive comments claiming that mjf was exaggerating his mannerisms and claiming it was because he purposely didn’t take his meds to make his condition appear worse. Do you think he didn’t really say that? If you agree that he did say that, are you condoning what he said?

  104. rosehips says:

    well vf, we did use birth control but it isn’t failsafe. and yes we slipped but you can’t go back and change those kind of things. So what should I have done, once the damage was done?

  105. VotingFemale says:

    I agree Lisa… it goes toward quality of life… there are many marriages in name only… they exist but are not of any mutual enhancement of each other’s quality of life when it comes to benefiting from mutual love. I tend to lump respect in with love… and yet is is seperate… and one can respect their mate and not love them.

    LisaInTX says

    VF
    I think RESPECT is truly the key of having long relationships. If you do not respect the other person, then love withers and dies eventually.

  106. rosehips says:

    I felt that getting out of my marriage was the best thing for my boys although I had serious misgivings and changed my mind once or twice, as did my ex, but in the end, after trying several times to make it work, we decided to end it. It was a difficult decision but considering that he almost killed his next wife (and I knew he had broken the arm of his first wife) I am glad I got out. But my boys are scarred and so am I but what can you do but move ahead and try to make the best of your life. That’s what I am trying to do although it’s not been easy.

  107. VotingFemale says:

    under the circumstances you describe… I would have done the same thing you did… for the same reasons.

    Not all marriages are in need of saving.
    Sometimes walking away from a bad marriage is the lesser of two evils, in my view.

    rosehips says

    well vf, we did use birth control but it isn’t failsafe. and yes we slipped but you can’t go back and change those kind of things. So what should I have done, once the damage was done?

  108. LisaInTX says:

    The heart of the matter regarding Rush. IMO…yes he is loud, and has allot of opinions about everything, but he is not a cruel heartless bastard as so many think he is. If he is wrong about something, or says the wrong thing/crosses a line, I have no doubt he would ADMIT it publicly. That is something that the Righteous Left will not admit too. They rarely ever apologize for anything.

  109. rosehips says:

    lisa, I think this is unfair. I think that failure to admit wrong crosses party lines. I don’t think the right or left has any monopoly on that. There are aholes on both sides that won’t admit they are wrong when they are and I don’t think you can really generalize that it is a left thing.

    lisa said: That is something that the Righteous Left will not admit too. They rarely ever apologize for anything.

    VF I had forgot this critical factor. It is one that carries over from the relationships of individuals to societal relationships and then into relationships of nations. It is the oil that greases the wheel or perhaps it is the wheel itself. How did Hitler manage to eradicate so many people? He convinced others that Jews were less than huamn – that they were not deserving of respect. That leads to justification for murder without conscience.

    You need to click on the links on that page. This issue was spread out over several articiles.
    Here is one when Coric was getting ready to interview Fox and called Rush to get some ifno.

  112. VotingFemale says:

    Rush can not factually state one way or the other what MJF did or did not do nor be privy as to motivations of MJF. That Rush voiced his opinion about MJF was his call… but I dont not agree with Rush on that… and others feel the same way. Rush is “all in” just as Obama is “all in” with regards to domination of one party over the other.

    70% of americans are not “all in” for domination of either party by the other party.

    I am one of that 70% and is why I am pushing back very hard on the Socialists… this one party domination thing is dangerous and must be brought back in balance…

    additionally both parties must be taken to task for continuing to grow the powers of the federal government… and if they dont both back off… I see a third party coming in and short circuiting both the left and right on key issues and put the fed back in its place.

    rosehips says

    lisa, (and foxy too) Did you see the original video of rush’s comments about mjf?

  113. Jean Lindsay says:

    Rose – You left the marriage for all of the right reasons. Most important was the fact that to remain and have your sons witness your abuse at the hand of their fater only serves to raise two more abusers. They were also subjected to the upset in the home. You boys will grow to understand and appreciate the fact that you wanted them to have a mother and a father. Sometimes people marry in the heat of passion only to discover that they were meant only to ge good friends. This has been my downfall.

  114. Jean Lindsay says:

    Have to “RUSH” to a job fair. Thanks all for letting me sit in and good-bye to all. I enjoyed it tremendously.

    VF – re majority rule. I stay a Republican because I believe in the two party system and with most of what the party stands for or did. But that is a duscussion in another part of the political forest.

  115. LisaInTX says:

    Rose
    I understand and don’t like to generalize or label people either. But…BUT….I’m talking about the majority in Leadership roles of power on the left. They are busy telling folks they deserve MORE, even when they did not earn it personally, and in the same breathe they are BLAMING the RIGHT saying they are the cause that stands in their way to getting everything they deserve in this life.

  116. m2elena says:

    I listen to Rush and the Michael J. Fox thing was taken out of context and vilified for political opportunism.

    If you trust my judgement as a Conservative, and my rationale… you basically trust Rush. I don’t say much different than what he says.

    And that is why I defend him, because I defend myself in turn.

    Lastly, VF is right. He is “ALL IN IT” for Conservative domination. But there is a difference, he is not elected by the people and not a representative of the people.

    Obama is.

  117. m2elena says:

    I might be a little less “arrogant” than Rush though… LOL

    But I don’t know for sure!
    Do I come off arrogant? He he..

  118. VotingFemale says:

    I will not tolerate physical abuse from a man… that I went to significant effort to be financially independent empowered me to have the ability to walk away from an abuser… it robs them of what they hold over us…. money, thus security.

  119. LisaInTX says:

    Rose
    Sorry honey, I was not meaning ALL the Left…:-}
    Also, I was really referring to those in the media/talk radio ….like Rush is. But this does apply to the agenda pushers that are so quick to pull dialog out of context to push the envelope for their own special interests.

  120. VotingFemale says:

    M2, There is a role for extreme partisans on both sides… I see it as necessary. At the same time I do not see extreme partisanship as necessary or wise for all citizens…

    the 15/70/15 ratio of left to middle to right seems to be a natural balance of karma… ying and yang.

  121. LisaInTX says:

    And Rose. IMO…You did what many people do and bailed when it was apparent the relationship would not/could not work. Abuse is one thing I would not put up with either. I think you made the right and only choice.

  122. VotingFemale says:

    The GOP leadership, in my view, needs to be “all in.”

  123. m2elena says:

    yes, I guess that’s where Rush and I do differ. I don’t mind Democrats running the country, if it keeps checks and balances in place. Right now, we have a President raised by Marxists, and purposefully annihilating the opposition.

    VF says: M2, There is a role for extreme partisans on both sides… I see it as necessary. At the same time I do not see extreme partisanship as necessary or wise for all citizens…

    That’s a good way to present this. ;-}

    the 15/70/15 ratio of left to middle to right seems to be a natural balance of karma… ying and yang.

  125. VotingFemale says:

    Rose… I have walked out on more than one relationship on account of fundamental disloyalty… cheating… I deserve not to be hurt in that way and it is up to me to look out for myself.

    if a guys testosterone is so out of control that he cant be loyal… then he does not deserve to have a loving mate. screw him…

    Morning M2

  127. m2elena says:

    I haven’t been able to read through most of these comments this morning, please don’t take it as a sign of insensitivity!

    I will for sure… right now I have to run and buy more diapers… We’re clear out.

    TTYL!

  128. m2elena says:

    Thanks Lisa… Sometimes I probably am. Lette told me so every day this week! LOL!!

  129. VotingFemale says:

    I agree… I view the behavior of Obama as contrary to the balance of this country… and he was given a pass by voters as the lesser of evils… and that is why I say Bush put Obama in office… by his actions. Too much power for too long. Bush should not have been in for a second term… that the Socialists only came up with a robot named Gore put Bush in office for a second term… in my opinion.

    m2elena says

    yes, I guess that’s where Rush and I do differ. I don’t mind Democrats running the country, if it keeps checks and balances in place. Right now, we have a President raised by Marxists, and purposefully annihilating the opposition.

  130. m2elena says:

    Bush obviously did make the Democrat party turn to monsters to acquire their power… they’ve sold the nation down the river…

  131. VotingFemale says:

    additionally I see Obama as a dangerous socialist/marxist radical… and that is not casual name calling… I really really read him as such.

    And that is the last thing this country needs.

  132. m2elena says:

    uh, clarify: by monsters I mean big money who does not have America’s interest at heart.

  133. Foxwood says:

    Rose, (taking break from work) If you search his site you can find the vid. I didn’t have time (work).

    If you listen to the entirety of his 3 hour show, you get the context of what he said. If you watch the news snippets the media puts out, you only get what the news media want you to believe.

    and I’m sure no liberal will listen to 3 hours, but if they did, they would see Rush in a new light.

    Yes I did watch him do the show live that day. I know what he said and meant.

  134. LisaInTX says:

    Vf
    I’m with you. Respect and loyalty/trust are two things that build love and without them, love withers and dies.

  135. Foxwood says:

    BBL, hope I didn’t run Bill off. I didn’t mean to. 😦

  136. billalmighty says:

  137. VotingFemale says:

    The salvation may well lay in the hands of moderate democrats, M2. Why is it you think I reach out to moderate Democrats instead of lumping all liberals as extremists? And challenge a liberal as to supporting what Obama is doing? The odds are in my favior…

    the 15/70/15 ratio

    Most liberals are not extremists… only 15 percent are that… and I am not talking about mentally defective iTrolls.

    Conservatives need to liberate conservative minorities from the clutches of the Socialist Party… just for openers.

    And I have had some very good conversations with Nev… who has admitted she is a conservative trapped within the socialist party.

    m2elena says

    Bush obviously did make the Democrat party turn to monsters to acquire their power… they’ve sold the nation down the river…

  138. billalmighty says:

    you can call this video a conspiracy, a fake, doctored or whatever you want

    you can even call me ignorant.

    rush crossed “the line”

    i/m/o

  139. m2elena says:

    37 seconds is not the context of the 3 hour show.
    I would not make fun of MJF.
    Rush is saying that the Democrats exploited MJF, which I agree.

  140. VotingFemale says:

    welcome back Bill…

    Does Rush cross a line? yes, he has in my opinion.

    Does that justify the actions of others crossing a line? no, in my opinion.

  141. m2elena says:

    I gave my 2 cents. I listened to the whole show. This is spliced content of 37 seconds.

    Rush is saying the Democrat’s EXPLOITED MJF.
    _________________________________

    fox challenged my assertions about limbaugh and was defending rush’s offensive statements

    and actions…as in mocking gestures

  145. Foxwood says:

    No Bill, That’s not the doctored one they showed on tv. I don’t see a problem with that. That’s the one I saw , Bill.

    am i justified to be offended?

    vf –

    maybe if i saw you defend me or rose a few times it would help

  150. LisaInTX says:

    Bill
    Small sound bits taken out of context can either be flattering or damning. It is up to the individual to take the time to search for the whole truth before making a true decision of what was said.
    I learned a hard lesson on Ireport when this tactic was used on me by a crazy person named Auntiebjw, that followed/stalked me, who copied my comments and would throw these same statements onto another report someone made that was not even related to that report. I finally got sick of defending myself and told people to go back to the original report and read the WHOLE context of what I said to get the true meaning.

  151. billalmighty says:

    lisa –

    i agree sound bites can be manipulated….in this case however, it’s rush’s own words that tell the story…..no cutting and pasting can manipulate what he said…i/m/o

  152. Foxwood says:

    And In my opinion, Bill… I don’t see it that way.

  153. VotingFemale says:

    Bill, if someone goes over the line… I will bring it back under control… that is a promise. I dont see everything that goes on… the tussle you and M2 got into that was at the heart of the elevation of heat between you two was dealt with… and I spoke with M2… you are going to need to trust me on this and move past it.

  155. LisaInTX says:

    Bill
    I also consider you a part of the group. So please make a decision to stay with us…we are not perfect by any means and just trying to figure things out together as a group.
    As to the MJF thing… I remember it and it was presented as though because Stem Cell research was limited, that it was THAT REASON, that MJF was getting sicker and had no hope of survival without it. I was outraged too as I have always loved the work of MJF.

  156. Foxwood says:

    The doctored vid had rush in a loop and sped up.

    Like I said, watch the 3 hour show.

  157. VotingFemale says:

    My take on that 37 second clip…

    Rush was doubting MJF’s degree of affliction and poising his opinion that MJF was playing up the severity of his symptoms to gain sympathy for a political cause.

    Now MJF either did or did not do that… Rush voiced an opinion… and that is all I see.

    Also Rush doubts the motives of all Socialists is a given… he is as extreme as Obama… thus these two guys are constantly at odds with each other… looking to get an advantage on each other like two fighters.

  160. VotingFemale says:

    and just to balance the scale…

    I see the bringing up of a “TRIAD” as a ploy by the right to discredit the SSM folks.

    I do not see it as something that is going to work.
    And I also see social issues are still getting in the way of economic and foreign policy issues…

    it is a deflection of attention… meanwhile the economy is under attack and North Korea and Iran and the situation in Pok-E-ston are bubbling over… and what are the Socialists stirring up in the press? Water boarding.

    It is deflection of national attention and thus is bogus BS.

    and for the record Bill… I told M2 to stop picking on you… said it in the open. And I know M2 has apologized to you…

    Rose is right… I defend her making her comments… even when I don’t agree with them. even when we get into a heated debate… she knows me well enough to know I have solid reasons for wanting differing views and supporting free speech. In time I hope you come to understand that about me.

    i’m not being picked on by m2

    of course they will say it

  171. VotingFemale says:

    Bill…. the offense you took from Fox’s comment was unfounded in my opinion. And if you are that sensitive, there really is not much I can do.

    I suggest if you want to debate then debate… continuing on like this is kicking a dead horse.

    now lets just move on…

    on another subject… CNN is cutting it’s losses and calling a spade a spade on that Liar Nancy Pelosi

    but still give voice to accusations from the left accusing the right of distractions… oy vey

    from: http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/05/12/pelosi.waterboarding/index.html

    Source: Aide told Pelosi waterboarding had been used

    From Deirdre Walsh
    CNN Congressional Producer

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — A source close to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi now confirms that Pelosi was told in February 2003 by her intelligence aide, Michael Sheehy, that waterboarding was actually used on CIA detainee Abu Zubaydah.

    This appears to contradict Pelosi’s account that she was never told waterboarding actually happened, only that the administration was considering using it.

    Sheehy attended a briefing in which waterboarding was discussed in February 2003, with Rep. Jane Harman, D-California, who took over Pelosi’s spot as the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

    This source says Pelosi didn’t object when she learned that waterboarding was being used because she had not been personally briefed about it — only her aide had been told.

    The source said Pelosi supported a letter that Harman sent to the administration at the time raising concerns. The source asked not to be identified because of the sensitive nature of matters discussed in classified intelligence briefings.

    Pelosi admits attending one briefing in September 2002, but at a news conference last month, she was adamant that she did not know waterboarding was used.

    “At that or any other briefing, and that was the only briefing that I was briefed on in that regard, we were not — I repeat, we were not — told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used, ” Pelosi said on April 23.

    Some Republicans have called for Pelosi to testify at congressional hearings.

    The number two House Democrat — Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland — said Tuesday, “I think the facts need to get out” regarding what members of Congress had been told about harsh interrogations.

    But when asked whether Pelosi testifying would be appropriate, Hoyer did not directly answer the question, saying, “The issue is what was done. If you don’t have the facts pounded on the table, they (Republicans) are pounding on the table, or they are pounding on Speaker Pelosi. Take your pick. But they are doing so as a distraction, as a distraction from what was done in this case.”

    I am out for a while BBL

  177. samhenry says:

    Hi, everyone. Back from job fair of offerings such as packaging spaghetti. Pelosi – I hope she won’t cry “I didn’t speak up about my role due to national security consideratons.” This smacks of Watergate. She should step aside. But she is tough and will not. I remember her behavior when Obama first came on the scene. She continued her closed sessions on drafting legislation and thereby not only got what she wanted but put the new guy in town in his place. I may have this all mixed up but this is my overall view.

    My report is about a report just released on “the feminization” of boys due to exposure in the womb to everyday chemicals. It appears to be leading to soaring rates of descended testicles, testicular cancer, and birth defects. This info should be shared with every woman who is planning on getting pregnant, or who is pregnant.
    I list common chemicals that should be avoided. The list is extensive and the information disturbing. Of course it won’t compete with Carrie Prejean’s boobs.

    Drinking Hookers in china get help from Obama& Co

    U.S. Will Pay $2.6 Million to Train Chinese Prostitutes to Drink Responsibly on the Job
    Tuesday, May 12, 2009
    By Edwin Mora

    (CNSNews.com) — The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will pay $2.6 million in U.S. tax dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly on the job.

    Dr. Xiaoming Li, the researcher conducting the program, is director of the Prevention Research Center at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit.

    The grant, made last November, refers to prostitutes as “female sex workers”–or FSW–and their handlers as “gatekeepers.”

    “Previous studies in Asia and Africa and our own data from FSWs [female sex workers] in China suggest that the social norms and institutional policy within commercial sex venues as well as agents overseeing the FSWs (i.e., the ‘gatekeepers’, defined as persons who manage the establishments and/or sex workers) are potentially of great importance in influencing alcohol use and sexual behavior among establishment-based FSWs,” says the NIH grant abstract submitted by Dr. Li.

    “Therefore, in this application, we propose to develop, implement, and evaluate a venue-based alcohol use and HIV risk reduction intervention focusing on both environmental and individual factors among venue-based FSWs in China,” says the abstract.

    The research will take place in the southern Chinese province of Guangxi.

    Guangxi is ranked third in HIV rate among Chna’s provinces–and is a place where the sex business is pervasive, Li said.

    “The purpose of the project is to try and develop an intervention program targeting HIV risk and alcohol use,” Li told CNSNews.com. “So basically, it’s an alcohol and HIV risk reduction intervention project.”

    The researcher outlined three components of the intervention program in the abstract for the project:

    “(1) gatekeeper training with a focus on changing or enhancing the protective social norms and policy/practice at the establishment level; (2) FSW (female sex workers) training with a focus on the acquisition of communication skills (negotiating, limit setting) and behavioral skills (e.g., condom use skills, consistent condom use); and (3) semi-annual boosters to reinforce both social norms within establishments and individual skills,” wrote Li.

    The doctor said the heart of the study involves “a community-based cluster randomized controlled trial among 100 commercial sex venues in Beihai, a costal tourist city in Guangxi.”

    “We anticipate that the venue-based intervention program will be culturally appropriate, feasible, effective and sustainable in alcohol use and sexual risk reduction among FSWs,” says the NIH grant abstract.

    Li said his study is being done in China rather than the U.S. because prostitution occurs with alcohol use in the United States like it does in China, Americans will be able to benefit from the project’s findings.

    “We want to get some understanding of the fundamental role of alcohol use and HIV risk,” he said. “We use the population in China as our targeted population to look at the basic issues. I think the findings will benefit the American people, too.”

    Li said minimal research has been conducted on the link between alcohol use and prostitution as it relates to HIV.

    “Alcohol has been a part of the commerce of sex for many, many years. Unfortunately, both global-wise (and) in the United States, very few researchers are looking at the complex issue of the inter play between alcohol and the commerce of sex,” he told CNSNews.com.

    The grant is one of several “international initiatives” sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.

    Ralph Hingson, director of epidemiology and prevention research at NIAA, told CNSNews.com, “There are many Americans who travel to China each year and they should be made aware of the HIV problem.”

    Hingson said that Americans will be able to apply the studies findings to the American situation because 1.2 million Americans are currently living with HIV.

    Li’s research includes exploration, development, implementation and evaluation. Currently, the project stands at the exploration stage, which the doctor expects to last 18 months.

    “The first phase is kind of an exploratory study just trying to get a good understanding of the phenomena in the population of female sex workers in China. The second phase is the program development,” the professor told CNSNews.com.

    Phase two will be based on the first year of the study and on “field observations,” he added. The third phase will be the implementation and evaluation of the program.

    “Prostitution is illegal in China but it exists in China,” Li told CNSNews.com, “but the Chinese government and the society’s attitude towards prostitution is complicated.”

    According to Li, there may be as many as 10 million female prostitutes in China with the majority raging from teenagers to those in their 20s.

    “We see a lot of governmental initiatives in China, like 100 percent condom distribution promotion programs, so they deliver condoms in those (prostitution) venues,” he added.

    “The global literature indicates an important role of alcohol use in facilitating HIV/AIDS transmission risk in commercial sex venues where elevated alcohol use/abuse and sexual risk behaviors frequently co-occur,” Li wrote when introducing the project last November.

    “We expect that the intervention will improve protective normative beliefs and institutional support regarding alcohol use and HIV protection,” he added.

    The NIH proposal hypothesizes that the program will decrease “problem drinking and alcohol-related sexual risk” among prostitutes that participate.

    “We hypothesize that the venue-based intervention will change and enhance the protective social norms and institutional policies at the establishment level and such enhancement, accompanied by individual skill training among FSWs, will demonstrate a sustainable effect within commercial sex establishments in decreasing problem drinking and alcohol-related sexual risk, increasing consistent and correct condom use, and reducing rates of HIV/STD infection among FSWs,” says the NIH abstract.

    Feds Will Spend $400,000 to Study Drinking and Sex Habits of Homosexuals in Argentina
    Monday, May 04, 2009
    By Matt Cover

    (CNSNews.com) – The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is funding a study that seeks to discover a link between drinking and having sex among homosexuals in Argentina.

    The study will send researchers to six bars in Buenos Aires to interview both patrons and proprietors in an effort to discover what it is about those bars that may encourage the risky behavior.

    The study began on Sept. 30, 2008, and runs through Aug. 31, 2010. It already has cost taxpayers $198,776. By the time the project ends, it will have cost $403,902, according to NIH.

    The grant, awarded to the New York State Psychiatric Institute, was provided by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), the division of NIH that studies the effects of alcohol and alcoholism.

    The study’s primary focus is to determine the relationship among drinking, bars frequented by homosexuals, and risky sexual behavior to see if certain bars in Argentina might be good targets for HIV-prevention campaigns.

    “Targeting public venues in Buenos Aires where men meet, alcohol is consumed, and sexual behavior occurs, the goal of this two-year exploratory study is to understand the various factors that contribute to the creation of a high-risk sexual space,” the study’s abstract explains.

    “To that end, the study seeks to describe the relative contribution of physical characteristics of the place, patron characteristics, type and level of alcohol consumption, and social dynamics that are at play and potentiate each other to result in sexual risk behavior.”

    The study has six goals, including the collection of information on six specific bars in Buenos Aires; the appearance, of those bars, alcohol availability, patrons, and types of sexual behavior taking place. The study also seeks to identify which factors contribute to alcohol consumption and sexual behavior in the bars.

    “The specific aims of this study are to … 2) identify factors that contribute to alcohol use and high-risk sexual behavior in the venues,” says the abstract.

    Researchers will interview 48 of the men who patronize the bars, as well as the bar staff to gather information on the types of alcohol consumed and sexual behavior engaged in.

    “Venue patrons will also undergo a brief quantitative assessment to gather descriptive data on sexual behavior and substance use.”

    After discovering why men who drink in these bars have homosexual sex, researchers will then try to discover whether it is possible to conduct anti-HIV interventions and how to conduct those interventions.

    The study will “4) assess willingness of venue owners/personnel to partner with HIV prevention organizations in reducing HIV risk in these settings and [what] types of prevention programs they find acceptable.”

    While the study is being conducted in Argentina, it is being funded with U.S. tax dollars. The grant recipients–who could not be reached for comment–say in the abstract that information gathered in the bars in Argentina might help inform similar efforts in America.

    “We expect findings to be useful in informing venue-based interventions for these types of venues in other countries.”

    The study is among a number funded by the NIAAA to examine the relationship between drinking and the spread of HIV, including a study of tourism, prostitution, and HIV in the Dominican Republic and another study examining drinking and HIV among prostitutes in China.

    Obama breaking news.
    He has reviewed the DOD photos of “torture” and has deemed them ‘Inflammatory” and hurtful to our military and has decided NOT to release them at this point. However, the Civil Rights folks are only in the appellate court phase, but may take this to the Supreme Court for ruling. My prediction is that THIS is what Obama is waiting for—HE WANTS this ISSUE at the TOP to really discredit and harm our Military!!!

    Meanwhile Liberal African Americans are supposedly are at odds with Obama over Gay Marriages in Washington DC

    Barry Warns of “Civil War” Over Gay Marriage

    D.C. Council member Marion Barry (D-Ward 8), the only council member to vote against the bill today to legalize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere, predicted today there could be a “civil war” in the District if the Council decides to take up a broader gay marriage bill later this year.

    “All hell is going to break lose,” Barry said while speaking to reporters. “We may have a civil war. The black community is just adamant against this.”

    Barry made his remarks a few hours after a group of same-sex marriage opponents, led by black ministers, caused uproar in the Wilson Building after the Council voted 12 to 1 to recognize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere. They caused such a ruckus that security guards and police had to clear the hallway. The protesters shouted that council members who voted for the bill will face retribution at the polls.

    Although he has been a longtime supporter of gay rights, Barry said he voted against the bill to satisfy his constituents in Southeast Washington.

    “What you’ve got to understand is 98 percent of my constituents are black and we don’t have but a handful of openly gay residents,” Barry said. “Secondly, at least 70 percent of those who express themselves to me about this are opposed to anything dealing with this issue. The ministers think it is a sin, and I have to be sensitive to that.”

    But Barry said he disagrees with the ministers’ antics today at the Wilson Building, saying the chaos “sets the movement back.”

    Sorry vf I see that it was rosehips that asked if buckeyes were like chestnuts… FIGURES ROSE! LOL

  350. rosehips says:

    belle, I have passed through ohio plenty of times. sorry, I wasn’t overly impressed. We tried to camp at an rv campground and the owner was a total dick. I think he was a republican. hahahahahhaa

    I’m popping in b/c I should be doing stuff, but I have to say- ain’t no fan like a buckeye fan.

    It’s a serious business in OH.

    I do love fall on High Street, Belle… in Italian village area and Victorian village… down on campus and also love the area down in Worthington. Love it!

    c you guys!!

    I know what you mean and I grew up off Dublin Rd. It’s a beautiful place. I traded the Scumota in for the Hoover (where I live now).

  357. ohiobelle says:

    I always called the Scioto the Scumota because of the dirty water. lol

  358. ohiobelle says:

    M2, I was the one that was at Hineygate wearing a fuzzy buckeye nut hat, football jersey and double fisting the beers haha. Oh and I always had at least 5 buckeye necklaces around my neck.

  359. rosehips says:

    belle, how do you double fist a beer? sounds intriguing…

    I’ll stick my foot in my mouth again. I can’t get both feet in there. 🙂

  369. ohiobelle says:

    Foxwood, haha. You are good about posting songs.. Can you post “Hang on Sloopy”.. for the biggest Buck Nut (aka Buckeye fan)?

  370. rosehips says:

    see y’all later!

  371. ohiobelle says:

    Bye Rosehips!

  372. Foxwood says:

    Sorry Belle, been depressed as of late.

    Hang On Sloopy – The McCoys on 45 (1965)
    Official song of Ohio State.

  373. rosehips says:

    foxy, why so sad?

  374. ohiobelle says:

    Foxwood, you are awesome!! I love the video and song!! You are my new BFF!!!

  375. Foxwood says:

    Lot’s of things Rose, but today didn’t help. I don’t like to rag, but I know what happened when I was there.

  376. ohiobelle says:

    Foxwood, I happen to be queen of cheering people up… anything I can do to help you be happy my new bff??

  377. karmahd says:

    Fox, Bill don’t take this shit so seriously!!! It is all just opinion, nobody’s right nobody’s wrong, except for me that is!!! I am always right just ask. But seriously if we each did not care regardless of the side of the issue would we each be so passionate? I have a song in mind let me see if I can find it!

  378. karmahd says:

    OK the link wont work, go to youtube and listen to it.

  379. karmahd says:

    There that one works

  380. ohiobelle says:

    hahah! Hello Karma!

    Foxwood, maybe this will cheer you up… I had my speakers so loud listening to hang on sloopy that I blew the cable in the family room.. hahaha!

    I am trying to reboot now. I hope I get it up and running before Idol starts.. lol

  381. ohiobelle says:

    I hope Ms Hoff doesn’t walk in and find out.. lol

    This stupid thing won’t reboot! It was worth it to hear my song..

  382. rosehips says:

    good choice karma!

    foxy, are you upset because we wouldn’t buy what you said about Rush?

    I will help you with that. M2 emailed me with info that causes me to question whether michael j fox stopped taking his meds to exaggerate his condition for the promo. While I don’t exactly think this is all that terrible a thing to do, it can be looked at as deceptive and if Rush had information that this might have happened, I can concede that he had a right to expose it. But this shouldn’t detract from the real issue here. Stem cell research is important to combat some serious medical conditions. It has the potential to save lives. So why is Rush making an issue of it? I’m sorry I am not willing to sit through 3 hours of Rush’s diatribe. It’s just not something I care to spend my time doing. I think that Bill has some legitimate issues and maybe he hasn’t been treated fairly. So let’s all try to be more accepting of our opposing views from here forward and not worry about whether Bill will come back or not. I hope he will, but if he doesn’t we will just have to make an effort to find others who we can engage with who aren’t so damn conservative. lol.

  383. ohiobelle says:

    My cable is up and running but now I have to get dinner started. I will try to check back later! It’s been fun today.

    Thank you Foxy for the song.

  384. VF, great post as usual. Girl you must get this by osmosis, then it just pours out! Love it.

  385. ohiobelle says:

    Rosehips, I read your comment above and guess I haven’t been following along. I love Rush but I also believe in stem cell research is far more imporant than global warming… It’s the only thing I think Obama did right.

    I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in..

  386. ohiobelle says:

    Hello warrantonegirl!! I wish I could stick around but I’ve got to take off. I hope all is well.

  387. rosehips says:

    well I just posted an ireport of another speaker from the peace walk rally on Sunday. I was excited about it because it featured a physician who was part of a medical team who clandestinely sailed two ships into the port of gaza. The first international ships to enter the Port of Gaza in 41 years!
    Ireports just isn’t what it used to be and serious stories like this just can’t compete with all the crap that seems to be the norm these days.

    I admit that due to my camera issues, the quality was compromised, but still it deserves better than 3 views in an hour. wah.

  390. rosehips says:

    lol belle, although stem cell research can save thousands of lives, climate change may be the death of us all. But hey, don’t worry, be happy. lol.

  391. karmahd says:

    Arlene it is called KARMA, you get what you give

  392. karmahd says:

    In my case you get it in High Definition. LOL

  393. rosehips says:

    Arlene, that would be ironic. what if we wake up and read something like : “Rush Tells America: Wanda Sykes Was Joking, Get Over It, I Did!”

    I might actually start listening to Rush if he said something like that.

    and for the record, I don’t mind if in the heat of debate, you all say something like “why don’t you go out and play in traffic”…oh wait, belle already said that to me once. lol.

  394. karmahd says:

    Yeah Rose but did she say to do so with a blind fold on???

  395. rosehips says:

    exactly karma, she told a bad joke so maybe someone should make her the butt of a joke. That will teach her. .lol

  396. rosehips says:

    lol karma, no she was being kind that day.

    karma said: Yeah Rose but did she say to do so with a blind fold on???

  397. karmahd says:

    You said BUTT ha ha ha ha

  398. rosehips says:

    yeah did you hear they are gonna tattoo my butt with obamasux?

  399. karmahd says:

    I see Iretort is still struggling along, and looks like big changes in the superstar status!! I have left a couple of comments, and no one attacked, they must be getting on to others now, good thing, I was about to bust a move with the Feds

    Man that sounds serious!!

  400. karmahd says:

    How big would the font have to be Rose, think about that one!! zinnnnngggg

  401. karmahd says:

    UTTT OHHHH, it was a wee bit of a joke Lassie, dunnnnt ya knnnnewwwo

  402. rosehips says:

    not following you karma, you surely aren’t joking about the size of my derriere now are you?

    You’ve seen my butt already, remember? lol

  403. rosehips says:

    maybe it would cheer foxy up to post the link to my buttreport. what d’ya think?

  404. rosehips says:

    what changes are they making to superstars? I gave some suggestions last week that they seemed receptive to. I thought it was ridiculous for someone with 1 ireport to be up on the board. I don’t recognize at least half of the reporters on the board. do you?

  405. Rosehips, I viewed your post it is good(see if it’s up to 3 views). Ohiobelle, thanks I agree on stem cell research too, but not embryonic. There has been no scientific health breakthrough evidence etc. from embryonic stem cell research(carried through to fruition). It is a hype up and scientists just want to study the embryonic stem cells because I’m sure it is interesting. Eventhough it is sad and gross to me. However there has been scientific breakthrough evidence from adult stem cell research. I hope we can agree to disagree girl.

  406. rosehips says:

    thanks warronton!

  407. karmahd says:

    Well me make fun of your buttski??? Why never… It looks as if the usual suspects on Ireports that were listed as superstars have dropped off, Larena, OC girl ect and others, I think there is a new matrix or something pushing the rankings. I also made that same observation as to the hits and lack there of a body of work. Dont take this wrong but I am proud that I do not have my superstar, it meant I was spending too much time on that site. Got to be productive ya know

  408. rosehips says:

    did I drop off too?

  409. karmahd says:

    Nope page two for you

  410. rosehips says:

    oh, OC and Larena deactivated. that’s why they are off the grid.

  411. karmahd says:

    Well they were not off that long, Rose honestly your stuff is more news as it should be, but most of the rest are hand picked and guided to the top of the rankings by being vetted, I never produced anything that they felt was worthy of being on, and I did not do any video which I think is a big thing. Keep up the good work and stay away from the politics, no one wins at that game.

  412. karmahd says:

    gotta run I will be on later

  413. rosehips says:

    see ya later karma!

  414. Can someone tell me about: “Foxwood said: … But I saw the first online airing of the video and the doctored video. I know what happened. Might say I was there….” WHAT VIDEO AND WHAT DOCTORED VIDEO? sorry beautiful people but I’m well you know…

  415. m2elena says:

    whoah arlene… true.

    arlene says: Sometimes in life strange things happen. Wanda Sykes wished Limbaugh’s kidneys to fail. What if one day we wake up to read the news headlines: “Wanda Sykes, Comedian Suffers from Kidney Failure”.

    I have actually seen stuff like happen in life. The folks who wish specific death on another, may suffer the same ill fate.

  416. m2elena says:

    you’re what?
    … I don’t know … *grins*

  417. rosehips says:

    it was the video of Rush Limbaugh saying that Michael J. Fox may have not taken his meds to make his condition seem more severe…..The video mjf made was a promo for stem stell research.

  418. m2elena says:

    Guess what rose! Rush didn’t really talk about the wanda debaucle… I don’t remember hearing about it at all… maybe like for 2 minutes.

    He was like “Yep, that’s them.”

    Rosehips says: Arlene, that would be ironic. what if we wake up and read something like : “Rush Tells America: Wanda Sykes Was Joking, Get Over It, I Did!”

  419. m2elena says:

    What’s going on with the superstar thing…
    Are people complaining about not being superstars, like they were about the star-rating?

  420. Foxwood says:

    It’s just I know what I saw, I wanted to have someone see what I saw and he didn’t even want to try to see. Ok, I will deal with it. Bill, I accept you have your POV. I’ll do better to deal with it.

    Ok… I’ll try to be happy. So what’s this about a buttreport?

  421. Foxwood, wait on the butt thing, will you send me links or something about before and after videos? thanks.

  422. m2elena says:

    foxwood… don’t beat yourself up. Bill was trying to debate 2 issues with 2 different ppl at the same time. You were talking about Rush. VF was talking about Wanda Sykes…

    It just got confusing for everyone.

    I think last week’s “fight” was worse. 😉

  423. rosehips says:

    foxy, hold on, I ‘ll get you the link.

  424. rosehips says:

    here you go foxy. hope you get a thrill. lol.

  425. Foxwood says:

    I didn’t see any butts! And I don’t want to see boy butt or dog butt or camel butt…

  426. m2elena you are very insightful.

  427. Foxwood says:

    Thanks Rose. Here’s one for you,

    Aquarius – The Fifth Dimention from the 45 (1969)
    Originally from the 1967 Broadway musical, Hair

  428. Foxwood says:

    Also thanks to Elena. 🙂

  429. Foxwood says:

    AW! It didn’t work Rose.

  430. rosehips says:

    thanks foxy. my kind of tune!

  431. Foxwood says:

    So do you know what I’m doing Rose?

    Listening to Hair and watching the Ultimate Fighter.
    Strange huh?

    karmhad said: Why never… It looks as if the usual suspects on Ireports that were listed as superstars have dropped off, Larena, OC girl ect and others, I think there is a new matrix or something pushing the rankings.

    K – Larena and OC both pushed the delete account or whatever you call it button during bad moments and came back with regrets about doing it since, when you do that, you lose your super star. It happened to me. There is a new formula for superstardom and I’m not sure what it is specifically but it has to do with all of the stats you see posted with every profile. It reminds me of the closing days of the Donald’s latest Celebrity Apprentice when he announced that although someone had raised the most money, presentation and a couple of other things had more weight. Since when in the Donald’s life has something other than money had more weight? Anyway, I hope this somewhat clarafies things at iR. Add an “s” and it reminds me I have to finish my IRS tax and get it in before next year, alas. Back to money.

  433. Foxwood says:

    SamHenry, you were like Jean Grey earlier today, huh?

  434. foxwood it was a closeup.

  435. samhenry says:

    Fox – Jean Colorful but never Jean Gray! I finally was able to hook up with my nickname so you didn’t see what looked like my formal stationery everytime I posted.

  436. arlenearmy says:

    Rose
    My opinion about what Wanda said has nothing to do with what Rush feels. Its not about Rush. If Wanda had said it about Obama or Michelle, I would say the same thing. I’m sure everyone here know I don’t like Obama and I think Obama & spouse are pure gutter scum to the core. But I know where to draw the line. Being comedian is not a defense.

    BTW, I find it ironic & mentally perverted that the liberals want to crucify Bush & Company for torture because they claim NON-LETHAL water boarding is cruel treatment of a terrorist. Yet, those same liberals think its coooolllll to wish painful death on an American citizen.

  437. Foxwood says:

    Jean Grey is from the X-men. I used to collect comic books. 🙂

  438. Foxwood says:

    Arlena,
    Not to mention that it can’t compare to Danny Pearl getting beheaded.

  439. Foxwood says:

    Sorry Arlene, misspelled the name. 🙂

  440. samhenry says:

    Fox – I’m an old dog – 67 to be precise and proud of it. Since mama died of Alzheimers, I’m probably going down that road in not getting everything I used to. But hey, I’ll be able to have tea every day with a different airy being and to post it on iReport. My posts, like Rose’s were to hard news with a little humor/sarcasm thrown in that only a couple of people actually got. And who wants to be up all night practicing for 20 uploads of reports next day to stay on top.

  441. Foxwood says:

    67? Your as young as you feel old, as Popeye used to say. Your a young timer. I can talk the talk, today I wasn’t doing so good. Rose brought me around.

  442. arlenearmy says:

    I never understood that superstar stuff. But I do hear a lot of complaints about the lost of that superstar. Some are inquiring into how they can recover the star. I noticed that the ireport 5 star rating is gone.

  443. Hey Arlene. Girl you have a way with words.I agree-I mean we all know if they were water boarding over there it would not be in sanitary conditions as they were over here. It is so disgusting the way BHO and Co are portraying this to the Americans that want to hear that crap.BHO mad it sound like we were sticking bamboo shoots up their fingernails. gee whiz.

  444. samhenry says:

    Arlene – it went away it caused cruel and unusual pain to many and was being abused by one known as “the one star bandit.” In my view, stars are for kids in kindergarden. We should be competing against ourselves to make good reports but now there are these “assignments.” I’ve tried to 1) get them to have more relevace and 2) to be updated on a regular basis. And so it goes. The tenor and tone of iReport has changed in just the few months I have been on it. It is sad. It could have been a good practice area for aspiring journalists and photojournalists as well as a lot of experience for young people all over but interesting and eye-opening and wonderful stuff from kids seem to take a back seat to the “assignments.”

    Arlene and warranteonegirl – Let’s propost the iReport star system and superstardom to the Obama Admin. for their consideration as a form of torture. Seriously, if anyone thinks any country is going out of the torture business in the name of national security, they need to check their brains at the door.

    I remember as a kid, I got baptized. My dad was a preacher & was the one who baptized me. I declare it felt like water boarding. I was kicking, fighting back with my hands as he dunked me in that creek. I thought I was gonna die. They tell me that it lasted only 1 minute. But I remember it felt like 10 minutes.

    They tell me that that’s what water boarding feels like. And the liberals got the nerve to complain water boarding is torture. If a 6 yr. old can survive a good old fashion southern baptist baptism, then surely a full grown terrorist can take it.

  447. samhenry says:

    Don’t surfers suffer a kind of waterboarding every time they wipeout?

  448. Foxwood says:

    This is the best bunch of girls to hang around with. You girls are great.

  449. Arlene! ahahahahahaahahaha, girl! that is a wonderful story and so funny! That must have been a sight to see!

  450. samhenry says:

    Fox – you really made my day. I could boggie I mean blog the night away but I’m into making an iDreamReport. See you there!

  451. samhenry says:

    Fox – you’ve been watching prime quality TV.

  452. Foxwood says:

    Reminds me of a Bullwinkle cartoon:

    Rocky: What kind of game can you play with girls?

    Bullwinkle: I guess this really is a kids show.

  453. Arlene, I just cannot get that out of my mind! I am laughing so hard!!!!!!! I think you just found the answer! Let’s call it Baptising instead of waterboarding! hahaahahahahahahah
    So, you didn’t agree with being baptised? Or rather you wanted to be baptised but once you were in the water, you changed your mind? hahahaah I bet your daddy was struggling to hold you and what was the congregation doing? hahaahahahahahaha

  454. foxwood, you are really fun too, man.

  455. arlenearmy says:

    Hey Samhenry
    Never seen you before. Please to meet you.

    I originally got on ireport because I saw it advertised on CNN. I was under the impression that I had to have a video camera, so I got one. I originally had the user name: arlenearmy. I uploaded 2 videos during the presidential primaries. Those videos got garbled up during upload & CNN would not help me to correct the matter & instructed me to go sign up for new account. So I deactivated and started back up again under new user name: Arlenearmy1

    The reason why I had not uploaded any videos under new user name (which I think is what CNN Ireport prefers) is because Ireport quickly became like facebook or myspace. It was no longer a venue for aspiring journalist. The dissenters started stalking the ireports & working hard to get folks banned. It turned into a food fight.

  456. Foxwood says:

    Some one say Food Fight?

  457. Foxwood says:

    I’m sorry Arlene, I really can’t help it sometimes. Forgive me? 🙂

  458. arlenearmy says:

    warrant
    I was 1st one that day to be baptized. The other kids were standing in line crying, cause they knew they were next. The congregation of grown-up were singing & humming a hymn.

    Don’t know why our church didn’t do the “sprinkle water on the head” like the Methodist folks.

  459. arlenearmy says:

    Hey Fox
    I can tell that you like the oldies. I like going down memory lane. Is that Belushi speaking french ?

  460. karmahd says:

    Wow we have a night crew now!!! Yipieee. And SamHenry, I have had labs for the last 25 years, down to my last one, and at one time had three all lived in the house. Needless to say those were after my divorce, replaced the wife with another dog, must be some sort of symbolism in that???

    But alas my old gal is on her last breath, she is 14 or so, I have rescued all my dogs for the exception of my first lab of which I bought from an puppy mill, life long less in that as well. Good to have you here and your cogent voice. I am back at work so I am only on mostly at night and some on the weekend, hope to see you then, Karma…

  461. Foxwood says:

    He’s speaking something… Might have been some kind of French. I didn’t see that in my VCR version.

  462. samhenry says:

    Hi, Arlenearmy – I had just gone off to bed but had to check back in because as my iReport name goes I’m and INFOADDICT. I like this blog. Glad to meet you, too. I just think that iReport has been dumdned down and I don’t know where it is coming from. I will say that producers have been receptive to my suggestion about getting rid of the superstar category. This competition stuff has got to go. There needs to be a move toward “featured reporters” that rotates weekly. I sent an e-mail to one of the producers after one of the holidays because according to the website, they were still calling for reports on that holiday. Things like that just have to be updated. I hope for their sakes things get better. Even their application is behind the times. If I comment here, this software takes me right back to the position I was in without having to scroll down. That kind of thing and others need to be upgraded over there. They must have rolled out just too soon to get it moving or something. Anyway, it’s nice to be on this blog and I’ve enjoyed today and being allowed to join in. Thanks all and VF.

  463. samhenry says:

    Thanks Karma. Labs are just, well, THE dog when I think of the word dog. However, Sam shares quarters with Impulse (Imp) a Jack Russell Terrier. They are both “fixed” (but aren’t most relationships these days) but they are in love. Right now, they are waking up the neighborhood. I also dog sit for two Basset hounds that I just adore. I don’t dog sit per se, I just take care of Nondo and Daisy. So my life is dogs, job hunting, gardening, house cleaning and worrying about money – in other words, I’m an old woman of the times. You honor wordy me with the term cogent. I accept that moniker and will try to live up to it.

  464. Foxwood says:

    What do you garden Samhenry? I do tomatoes, peppers, okra, green beans, onions, cucumbers, zucchini and some herbs.

  465. karmahd says:

    I forgot Dodger, my weee litttle weeiner dog I clutched from certain death on a busy highway, he is a pup, and pugnatious, and in need of loosing a few ounces of manhood. He will chase and play fetch with the best of them. I am a dog guy, have been and have tried to reform, I just would miss the comedy too much.

  466. samhenry says:

    Fox – I was going to do a large garden this year but plans fell through so I will at least do lettuce, tomatoes squash and a little silver queen corn tucked back by the small barn behind my house. I do chives, (the green stuff good with tomatoes – mind is fading—ah well) and parsley. I may do some onions. I am lucky, next door to me is a former farmer and he does THE most wonderful organic garden and he is generous. I live in a country town in western NY and it’s good to be in the country let me tell you.

  467. Foxwood says:

    Hey Karma, I thought you ate the weenie dog! Something about your diet? 🙂

  468. Foxwood says:

    SamHenry, I live in southern Louisiana. Hot here all the time. Got a green house so I have veggies most of the year, unless it gets blown over by a hurricane.

    Getting tired myself. Need to rest for work.

  469. Foxwood says:

    I wasn’t an animal person. Damn cat found me. Guess she’s mine now. Fixed her, then my kids decided they didn’t want theirs anymore and I got a boy. I’m not an animal person, but I got two cats.

  470. karmahd says:

    I had 4 tomato plants, green peppers, watermelon and cukes, the damn fruit rats here in Florida ate them all. Big problem, I used to grow them in the cage around the pool but this house does not have such a cage, so I am stuck to growing herbs and peppers, rats dont like them!

  471. Foxwood says:

    Glad you didn’t eat the dog, Karma, I got to go to bed. I got the 4 letter word I got to go to in the morning… Work.

  472. samhenry says:

    nite, fox and and cat company. Nite again all

    Girl, THAT CONJURS UP THE FUNNIEST IMAGE!!!!!!!! There is Nothing Better than a good ‘ol southern baptism! I’m presuming your daddy was a Southern Baptist Preacher, What a great Legacy he left for you. I love the part about the congregation on the bank singing and humming hymns! “Washed in the Blood” no doubt! Hey and if you have time, send me an update too. xxoo

  474. samiam60 says:

    Good Morning VF and company. It is a new day!

  475. rosehips says:

    good morning all. I’m up before the birds again. geeesh. my clock is all messed up. I spent so much time blogging yesterday, I wore my eyeballs out. Was studying last night and got so sleepy I laid down before 7:00 and fell asleep. woke up before 11 and was in and out of sleep the rest of the night. Got my studying finished this morning and now here I am. Is there no hope for me?

  476. rosehips says:

    it’s more like an “old night” for me here. not even 4 am!

  477. VotingFemale says:

    Morning Sam! Morning Rose!

  478. VotingFemale says:

    Rose, you will be fine dear! sleep is over rated lol

  479. rosehips says:

    I’ve got 3 beds of garlic that probably need weeding. I haven’t checked them in a week. It’s been raining for two days now.
    The mornings are still so chilly I haven’t planted anything but spinach and lettuce. My son is on a spaghetti squash kick so I am ready to plant some. I bought one a month ago and it cost almost $8!
    I will be planting fava beans (gotta order those right away) tomatoes, green beans, zuchinni, beets, carrots, corn, onions, and herbs. not sure what else yet. I’ve got flower gardens that are in desperate need of weeding. I have been totally neglectful. But my dandelions are the envy of my neighbors, for those that like em. For others I am probably public enemy #1. lol.

  480. VotingFemale says:

    I need to write and publish a post for this morning…

    There is so much to write about, I need a dozen blogs to get the job done lol

  481. rosehips says:

    hey vf! how are you this morning?

  482. VotingFemale says:

    We don’t plant tomatos till the end of May… weather is just too fickle here as a rule.

  483. rosehips says:

    can’t wait to see what you come up with vf. I’m sure there will be something to react to. heehee

  484. VotingFemale says:

    Dandelion culturing is an under-appreciated endeavor dear! ROFL

  485. VotingFemale says:

    it will be about Sarah! 😉

    rosehips says

    can’t wait to see what you come up with vf. I’m sure there will be something to react to. heehee

  486. rosehips says:

    vf, I see you study from the Dan Quayle book of spelling. haha.
    just a tip. potatoes and tomatoes are spelled without an e at the end until you pluralize them. Then you add an e. I know spelling isn’t your strong suit, and honestly it doesn’t matter, but I just thought I’d help you out this morning because I’m feeling so rested. lol.

  487. VotingFemale says:

    LOL @ Rose!

    lets cut to the chase and call them ‘maters!

  488. VotingFemale says:

    as in tow maters!

  489. rosehips says:

    maters and taters…works for me!

  490. rosehips says:

    go get that report done and I’ll see you later!

  491. VotingFemale says:

    BBL

    and FWIW

    it is Dan Quayl

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  492. Foxwood says:

    (yawn) Damn birds!

  493. rosehips says:

    hey foxy, you no likey birds? they are better than an alarm clock, dontcha think?
    I rose before the birds this morning and am almost done with my first cup of java. Have a cup and appreciate the chirping….

  494. rosehips says:

  495. rosehips says:

  496. Foxwood says:

    Thanks Rosey!

  497. Foxwood says:

    I do the green tea during the week. I save the coffee for the weekends.

  498. VotingFemale says:

    Morning FoxMan!

  499. VotingFemale says:

    This morning’s blog post is hot off the wordpress…

    lets move over to it for faster comment reloads.

    Instead of Rose being on the defense it will provide her some relief and a chance to go on the offense!

    Obama is not mentioned even once in the post! ROFL
