Truth or drink?

February 25, 2013

A friend suggested an excellent drinking game for those wishing not to fall off the wagon. It involves listening to any of President Obama's speeches and drinking only when he tells the truth....

I am very much amused by the Kool-Aid drinkers, like you!! You're so blinded by the need to 'win' that you don't mind the continuous erosion of rights, along with the reduction of responsibility and accountability, that your side advocates. It can be likened to being a frog in a pot of water over a fire. At first, the water is getting warmer, but just a little at a time, so it feels good. By the time the water is getting too hot to bear, poor froggy is immobilized and can't get out. When they came for the Poles, I didn't mind; I'm not Polish. When they came for the artists, I did nothing; I'm not an artist. When they came for the merchants, I did nothing; I'm not a merchant. When they came for the Gypsies, I did nothing; I'm not a Gypsy. When they came for me, there was nobody to help me; I was forced to their will. America is on dangerous ground, and we must be vigilant.

Actually, all of America lost,but not because of any rhetoric or spew, but because of the lies and deceit prevalent in the media and the entire political arena. Obama-lama-ding-dong STILL inssts on blaming GW Bush for all of the problems he caused himself. When will he finally grow up?

All of America lost? Is that the best you have to offer? It sounds like 5th grade theatrics from the Sean Hannity show. Blame the miedia, blame Soros, blah, blah blah. However, I am amused by your theatrics and look forward to your fits and rages over the next four years. Perhaps your and your brethren should look yourself in the mirror before you begin criticizing the majority who won. We are not going anywhere. It pays to be a winner.

Mr. Knapp/valves continues to be the moron. You have no sense of humor. You're a sniveling, malicious crackpot.

You really have projection problems! Is this a long-range problem with which you've struggled all your life, or a fairly recent development? There is professional help out there that maybe you should check out! Seriously, you don't know me or anything about me other than what I've disclosed here. I'm very sorry you're a humorless moron, but you are what you are!!

"he is a tyrant unto himself."

Oh, I know. And he drowns kittens every morning and orders the homeless to be beaten and their coats taken in winter. But come tomorrow he will still be President and you will still be crying and gnashing your teeth.

This man has thrown every person under the bus, since his inception into our political system. He is a narcissis.

Yes, guts. The order to get Bin Laden took guts and it was the greatest Spec Ops achievement of this century. Again, if you never wore a uniform you would not understand. So what, you don't like the guy. Get back with me when you have time to back up your assertions about buses, and treason, blah, blah, blah. You sound like a poor man's Sean Hannity. Your side lost and one reason why is the kind of rhetoric that you spew. Of course, in four years you will be moaning again about rigged elections, or treason, or purple men living under your bed or Jesus doesn't love America anymore. Then again, maybe god is a progressive? Amen?

BTW, I'm referencing Benghazi in the post below. To address the guts issue over OBL, please...the "guts" you speak to was a politically motivated movement. He wouldn't have the "guts" to serve with any honor in our military or any outfit that requires submission to authority because he is a tyrant unto himself.

Class,

You might want to engage your brain before you put your mouth in gear.

" If you had ever served time in the military, you'd realize the guts it took to give that order and send men into harm's way. "

Guts? Guts to issue an order? Surely you jest. Guts, in this case...your CIC would stand up to his treasonous and impeachable offence to this country by not defending the Constitution of the United States by allowing four American citizens watch while he was entertained by the movie wherein his sympathizers did God knows what to those men before they died. As to guts? This man has thrown every person under the bus, since his inception into our political system. He is a narcissist. Look up the word. That dispels any thoughts of guts. BTW, I not only come from a military family, but also served myself...gotta watch those anger gears.

"BTW, if it was OBL, our Seals took him out and last I checked they aren't a political party."

But the Commander in Chief gave the order. If you had ever served time in the military, you'd realize the guts it took to give that order and send men into harm's way. But you never served your country, so you spend most of your free time playing the conspiracy game on message boards because you've never spent time with logic or reason.

Sham,

""Shamwow - Gimme the Party who got bin Laden, over the one that ran-from-him, ANY day!!! "

That's assuming it was Bin Laden - weeks before the actual reports (and even they are suspect) spoke to his burial.

BTW, if it was OBL, our Seals took him out and last I checked they aren't a political party.

" It was a god send for many Veterans who did not have reliable transportation"

I felt it appropriate to use the 'valves' monicker just once more, to make the point that one of us might be a moron, but it's not me!! Do you have any sense, much less a sense of humor, Mr. Reeder?

The moron still doesn 't see how stupid his letter is. How much he made the right look silly in his feeble attempt to be witty.

You claim to have a college degree? It must be one you got as a Cracker Jack prize. I'm allegedly "the moron", but you're the one devoid of writing skills. Do you often use phrases as whole sentences, such as the dismal attempt at communication in the above post? The first period does end a complete sentence, but the rest, like so many of your idiotic posts, makes no sense. What's the subject? Where's the verb? What's the cohesive thought that those words strung together express? If you'll look in a mirror, you'll see who has no ability to express thoughts in writing!

"Sorry Class, VA Home Loans don't require you to buy PMI at least we didn't."

Well, my memory was correct then. That's what I thought. Many years ago, I used to ride the VAN. It was a god send for many Veterans who did not have reliable transportation. Glad to hear about your business and such. In spite of so much negativity we hear, our country does a bang-up job of taking care of its Veterans. It's not perfect, but it's the best treatment in the world.

Chris, you are amazing - "I have an idea for another game for you. Load a gun before the speech, and as soon as the President starts talking, put it to your temple, and pull the trigger. Then we won't have to listen to the wall to wall whining anymore."

I do volunteer work for the DAV by driving their van and helping veterans get their benefits, that's the least I can do since the DAV got my husband his compensation. We used the home loan and I used the VA business loan to start my business many years ago. I also have CHAMPA.

"We KNOW where they are (WMDs). They are in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad." - Donald Rumsfeld March 30, 2003

Oh yeah! I remember all the Democrats screaming and yelling at Bush and Rumsfeld that there were no WMDs in Iraq. But I forget - was that before or after they (nearly unanimously) voted to authorize that action?" - VinceKnauff

Ah, yes...the authorization...that Lil Dumbya "forgot" was an "If all else fails.."-option.

Class, I'm not sure if you know this or not but the VA changed their policies on mileage pay out it is now Direct Deposit you will need to fill out a form. And lets not forget 100% pay no property taxes or school taxes.

Born, Yes, I know. No more getting cash slipped to you under the pay window. BTW, it's been a while, but when I bought my house, of course, without any money down, no points, and I think I didn't have to buy PMI? Also, my DAV plates are nice to have during Christmas when I can park up 'front.' LOL.

...But, as usual...it took another Dem, to bail-out another Bush.
