Had to laugh cause I for one am guilty of throwing 'socialism a la Bush' around. There are indeed comic aspects to all this e.g. CEOs proclaiming they also had no idea of what kind of schemes they had endeavored in. IMHO, there are no hardened battle lines because there is general bipartisan confusion of what to do next. Makes me think maybe it won't make much difference who wins the election cause neither one will have anything to spend. If it is a party on the Titanic let's at least have some fun!Comment Posted By funny man On 24.09.2008 @ 19:40
Blogs should be both fun and stimulating!! I'm just bored about sites filled with people who have nothing to contribute but scream incoherent nonsense (left and right) and then I just don't go there. On the other hand if sites are not opinionated they are usually just stale. That is why I come here. Of course I also reserve my right to not only see fault with Obama and laugh about ourselves too.Comment Posted By funny man On 22.09.2008 @ 16:15
Maybe you'll win one of these empty CEO seats that are now up for grabs. That'll be 30 million a year and I bet you'll keep blogging out of boredom. Have fun!Comment Posted By funny man On 20.09.2008 @ 00:26
Curious to see that all the financial libertarians vanished into thin air. I would call that bail out plan nationalizing Wall Street and that actually is moving towards socialism. Bipartisan and boy did they act quickly. Just a thought.

frankly speaking I'm more worried about the state of the economy then navel gazing of the various gaffes of Obama or McCain. I mean you travel from one place to another, shake hands and talk and give interviews all the time. My brain would be fried at more than one point if that would be my schedule (some here probably believe that is a permanent state in my case). So this is no big deal for me.
To all who are running around in circles and predicting outcomes: this will be close. I have always thought so and it shouldn't surprise anyone. I'm not going into politics, just the horse race aspect of it. McCain probably made a life saving move with Palin energizing the base and Team Obama run a more effective campaign than Gore and Kerry combined. Whether you like it or not it is and will be 50/50. Thought this was fun:
What does that have to do with reform? Nothing! Probably elections are not the best time for that.Comment Posted By funny man On 19.09.2008 @ 16:00

don't expect me not to respond when someone calls me a liar. That's why I said the things about you (you still didn't answer my request regarding 'conservative' and 'marxist'; smile). Seems to me you are a bit paranoid these days. Still think Palin is a bimbo cause she doesn't know anything about foreign policy. Wtf is liberal about that, that is just obvious. Defending Georgia is just not in our national interest and that in my opinion is 'conservative' foreign policy. If you beg to differ that's fine just don't bore me with what and what does not come across as liberal talking points. I also have a day job and family so I just don't have the time to visit a gazillion web pages.
why don't you lay off calling people idiots just because they have a different take on things than you. If I want left or right wing morons screaming incoherent nonsense I have plenty of sites to choose from. However, I come here for discussions not shouting matches.
Now to the point of Russia and other things. Russia has had imperialistic ambitions ever since it grew out of tiny Viking settlements on the Volga hundreds of years ago.
In this case they wanted to show who is boss in that region and of course waited or the wrong move by the Georgians (which they did). Can't really imagine you really believe there were no Georgian soldiers on the move.
Anyway, for some reading that I pretty much agree with here is some for interested parties.

this pretty much sums up my misgivings about Palin:Comment Posted By funny man On 16.09.2008 @ 16:46

why don't you try the "American Conservative". You are probably one of these dimwitted Ann Coulter conservatives who trashes anyone who doesn't stay 'on message'. Let me take that back, Ann Coulter wanted to support Hillary...
which makes her? Never mind.
IMHO neocons hijacked the conservative movements, many of them former marxists btw. However, for you to have discussion about these issues is probably close to treason. Why don't you tell me what a marxist and what a conservative is before you throw these terms around. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you are smarter than our Sarah.
so an army of ghosts marched into South Ossetia? Do you want to tell me that the American Conservative is also a ruthless liberal plot with Pat Buchanan at the helm?
The election is close so it is going to get ugly. However, the one reason that I as a conservative would consider voting for Obama is that I really want the neocons and their concept of "nation building" go to hell. All this change mantra on both sides is obviously nonsense. However, I finally did see Sarah Palin's interview on U-tube. That really is a shame, I mean what a bimbo. Doesn't know anything about Georgia and Russia (as we all know Georgia first attacked) but she appears to be ready to defend a 'NATO ally'. Sure Russia provoked Georgia but it sure wasn't an 'unprovoked' invasion by Russia. I'm not sure I'm going to vote but not for that ticket!! Where have conservative values gone? Aren't you guys ashamed at with all the conservative thinkers and experts on our side we come up with someone like her. We rightfully accuse Obama of empty phrases but then...enough ventingComment Posted By funny man On 15.09.2008 @ 14:21
