What a joke!

July 16, 2013

Paula Deen, what a joke, she’s crying alright, she lost a lot of money, saying she’s sorry, over and over. She said the N word more than once and her brother is no better. I feel nothing to her....

Erik, why shouldn't felons who have served their punishment be allowed to vote?

BTW, I AGREED with this question! I don't know what's going on, but I'm still willing to blame the heat for all the crankiness! I am as I always am, in good spirits, happy and feeling very well, thanks for the concern!

"...my guess is that the heat is making everybody quite a bit more contrary than usual!"

Your posts here seem hyper and scatter-brained; you might want to check your own temperature first.

Ritty -- Regarding felons voting, owning firearms, traveling abroad, holding public office...The time a felon serves (his sentence) is only part of his punishment, which also includes the loss of certain rights.

With that being said, it can at least be argued under what circumstances might all or a portion of these rights be restored.

For instance, a third-offense retail theft in PA is a felony, as is a forged check case. Should a person convicted of either suffer the same lifetime loss of voting or firearms rights as a bank robber or rapist?

Placed in that perspective, I submit more people would be agreeable to discuss lifting some of those restrictions.

I mean, I don't understand... as Christians, didn't Jesus teach us to love our neighbors as ourselves, to turn the other cheek, to forgive others as He has forgiven us? Did you think that I didn't REALLY believe what my philosophy, my LORD, teaches? Exactly HOW hypocritical did you believe me to be? Come on now!!

You, and apparently everybody else, thought I was being sarcastic! I WAS NOT! I believe in forgiveness, and once the penalty is paid for an offense, it's paid, and time for full reinstatement to society! It's really sad you're all so set in the idea of no second chances! I've asked before... What's WRONG with you people?

A whole bunch of straw men, Wayne, and none answers the question. Why should a person who breaks a law, admits guilt, serves his or her punishment (including any probation) no longer be allowed to vote? The question is about voting, not professional licenses, occupations, recidivism, or anything else. Just why is it that you don't think any ex-felon should vote?

I love Paula Deen....my kind of lady. If you watch comics on tv, they all use the N word, so what is the problem. We played a game when I was young and used the N word, so what is the problem? This is all about money from an ex-employee.. I am so tired of the race card being played by the blacks but we whites can't say we are being discriminated against...unbelieveable. I don't think all blacks deserve to be called a N, but I do thing that a lot of them do. I also think there are some whites that deserve that title...it is all about the person and who they are not the color of their skin, but blacks want it to be about race so they can continue to get their free college, free gold jewelry, free sneakers, etc. When will the whites have the same free handouts? Just like the Zimmerman trial, this is not about what really happened, this is about blacks wanting justice for one of their own being killed, not about the evidence presented.

While we're at it, let's allow convicted felons who have served their time to run for office, retain law licenses, medical licenses or return to their banking/coaching/preaching/teaching jobs. Recidivism is no problem, as long as they've done their time! None of them would ever return to those things that got them into trouble in the first place!

It sounds like the original writer forgot to take her "Anti-Bitter Old Foole Pill" the day she wrote that letter.

This letter is a joke, as are the ridiculous claims that, "My side is always right. The other side is clueless. The other side is always wrong. The other side never,,,[whatever]. My side is perfect, and the other side is as far from perfect possible." or the equally ridiculous, "Oh, so that's what Porky Limbaugh says, huh? YOUR HYPOCRISY precedes you! Cheney and Halliburton only want to make money, they don't care if EVERYBODY [else] dies." SEE: whatever from YOU TUBE, for Pete's sake... as if You Tube was some sort of credible, trustworthy news source. If you use You Tube to stay up on current events, you're pretty out of touch!

Liberals see no individuals.

That is why they support abortion, oppose any form of self defense while weakening punishment for criminals, fewer prisons and more felons voting.

“Your side sees people as individuals until you see liberals that is.”

Liberalism is a characteristic if certain individuals; they’re still individuals.

LOL now you want to say an indidvidual is a minority and you don't want them to be a part of a group.

Your problem is you can not see the individuals from the group.

The left claims concern for minority rights without realizing that the individual is the smallest minority of all.

Just curious...now that the media has coined a new class of person "White-Hispanic" in referring to Mr. Zimmerman, is it now OK to call Obama a "White-African?" I'm so confused with all these differing ethnicities of people any more.

Liberals never wax nostalgic over Jewish slaves used to build the pyramids.

Liberals never talk about slavery being practiced today by blacks.

Liberals do not discuss the racist comments made by blacks in this country, like Trayvon Martin did.

It proves the issue of racism exists for the sole purpose of bludgeoning conservatives.
