    Trey, I reside in Ileana Ros Lehtinen's district down here in Coral Gables. I'd like some specific examples of how I might vote independently (i.e., away from the Democratic Party) and yet still vote for those candidates who most closely approximate my political point of view on any selection of issues you want to choose from.

    Names. Give me names.

     That kind of sensible reasoning can get you labelled a "FANBOY" around here.

    (Full disclosure: I AM a FANBOY for real.)

  • on a comment on Jesus Christ’s Return over 4 years ago

     Unlike 100% of my diaries post MyDD "upgrade', I now have penned (cut and pasted) a diary which accumulated a comment! I guess I could take this as evidence that there is a god, but I'll hold off on that for the moment.

    The point is, I think, that Americans are superstitious idiots for the most part, and the antidote offered by blogs such as this one can be boiled down to: Obama Sucks and those who think he doesn't suck, suck even harder, which - imho - misses the point entirely.

     Even assuming that there is a lot of overlap between the sizeable portion of the population of the good ol' USA profiled by Pew in re: JC's return and:

    Those who believe in ghosts: 48%

    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/10/29/opinion/polls/main994766.shtml

    Those who believe in/ have seen UFOs: 50%/ 5%

    Those who believe Obama is a Muslim: 57 percent of Republicans, and 32 percent of Americans overall.

    http://primebuzz.kcstar.com/?q=node/21796

    With regard to Healthcare Law: Eighty-one percent (81%) of GOP voters and 54% of unaffiliateds favor repeal of the plan. Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Democrats are opposed.

    As I said, even assuming that there is overlap among those groups of boneheads, whether or not I am an Obama fanboy should not trouble people here, and concern about opinion polls regarding the November elections should be considered in the larger context: very many Americans are batshit crazy and not very bright to boot.

    Remind again us of your time spent in the Service, I seem to have forgotten somehow.

  • I come to MyDD a half dozen times a week to enjoy the delusional fantasy, but then  leave within minutes because of the deafening sounds of crickets. One of the sanest voices will abandon Obama if he fails to produce the withdrawal of at least two brigades and the implementation of a timetable in Afghanistan by some arbitrary future date based on something or other. I love this place.

  • hope Cheney survives. President Palin will need his expert advice on handling these Oil related issues, and getting the job done - not just giving fancy-pants speeches about expanding the intrusion of government into our private lives and doing damage to small businesses by over-regulation of large businesses. Cheney doesn't hate profits, which are what the American Dream is built on, just as the Founding Fathers intended originally. Happy Fourth of July, everyone!

  • My opinion is

    1.the ME is a very complicated and screwed up place and has been that way for a very long time. 

    2.There is plenty of blame to go around.

    3. Everyone has reasons for what they do, aand ever one of them sounds like an excuse to the other side.

    4. Irony prevails.

    5. H. Clinton has been SoS for almost 2 years, yet she has failed miserably. Obama obviously was wrong to have picked her.

  • Am I talkin' to me? Am I talkin' to me? Am I talkin' to me? Then who the hell else am I talkin' to? Am I talkin' to me? Well I'm the only one here. Who the fuck do I think I'm talking to?

  • comment on a post Kill patch over 4 years ago

     The internets has become an essential requirement of life, like food, water, shelter, and clothing. If the next President (Palin, presumably) finds a compelling reason to shut it down (like maybe a war against porn), then it's almost certain that she will hit the kill switch.

     I'm selling my holdings in Starbucks, Google, Cisco, and Netflix stocks.

    Just to be fair, the title of your too long retort was all I read of it. I didn't have to read it any more, since the title said all I needed to know: that whatever you wrote  was based on absolutely nothing.
