Charles:"Capricorn1 I also 'LOL' those statements. I'm done with you, you are nothing but a trouble maker."

I would rather be called a "trouble maker" than a "back peddler" any day.

Charlie, I suggest you read all your posts to this thread slowly. Then as that smirk turns into a look of recognition and embarrassment will you realize the need for professional help.

Please use these taxpayer funded services we supply with our blessings and also to a speedy recovery.

So Chuckie wrote the letter before he didn't write the letter then said:

"they did edit some lines out of "my" letter if in fact it is "my" letter."

Insane people should not be left unsupervised around a keyboard.

Check out the Drudge Report home page- Obama has his foot on the Resolute Desk AGAIN!! No respect for the desk, office, laws, Constitution, or the people. White House tours still shutdown; Traitors all.

Getting back to the age thing, I believe all persons in the same office for over twelve years need to get out. We need term limits on all of our elected officials. The founding priciples of this country never meant for representation to become a career.

Yes gavin did post that but I also posted how Republicans like Sen. Mitch McConnell came out last month speaking to Clinton's age as being too old to run for president. I had posted about this at a liberal forum way before Gavin but now the right wing is really getting quit enamored over the age issue. This is just another talking point from the right, Gavin has an ego problem. It is not about Gavin's post but about how the right has embrace age as an issue and have become hypocritical about it.

But then I don't expect the right to understand that they will read into more than is there and play the victim.

So now you are denying this is your letter? LOL how convenient! Sorry Chuckles, most of us KNEW it was you after the first two lines. Man up and take credit for your deception.

Be honest you really do not want to discuss the letter especially if it was written by me. -Reeder

There's nothing to discuss Reeder. You wrote a letter about a post Gavin made on a local conservative forum concerning a historian, and you twisted it to mean something that was never the intention of the post. Then you made it seem like YOUR interpretation was some new "talking point" of the republican party, which is nothing but lies. Show me a reference where Republicans are stating what you claim in your letter please. You were busted once again and you don't have the jewels to comment on your own letter and back up your deception. And you wonder why most don't take stock in anything you have to say. Start writing facts that can be verified by reputable sources and maybe people will listen to you. You are really starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel when you resort to tactics like that.

LOL

I noticed that they did edit some lines out of my letter if in fact it is my letter. I live in Montoursville not the city they printed. I can assure you I know what city I live in. I did not move. LOL!

So I can honestly say you are barking at the wrong Charles M. Reeder. LOL!

'I'm sure there are some very good people out there who could do a lot for our country, but they're not wealthy, well known, or have the right connections to even get on a primary ballot. Couple that with the microscopic media exam that most (not all) people receive when they try to run for office, and I think a lot of people might shy away completely.' by CaveFelem.

Believe it or not I agree with your post. Some very worthy people are being blocked from politics. A lot of what people are saying and supporting are from money backed special interest groups.

Sadly, Mr. Mills, it often comes down to voting for the lesser of two evils.

If you want wordy with ornate language, check out The Express LTE "Fighting to Lose" or just about any letter by that LTE. Good grief.

"Perhaps you would like to join our discussion on your letter so you can attempt to defend yourself."

I use to but you see you have several on the right who object to me participating and posting on theletters I submit. I have come to agree them. I wrote the letter I don't need to defend it nor do I have to explain it or myself. As you aptly pointed out which many on the right will agree with, I already said way too much for you to comprehend. Why would you want me to add more?

Be honest you really do not want to discuss the letter especially if it was written by me.

I guess if you are of the simpleton breed then it is the prefect letter for you and if you are nothing but a left wing hater. -Reeder

Perhaps you would like to join our discussion on your letter so you can attempt to defend yourself. Let's see if you can back up the claims in your letter with truths. Come on Chuck.... afraid to show yourself because you know you got caught?

USA, I heard about that rant yesterday and checked it out. It is an actual published piece. I, too, dislike the Obamas and found it refreshing to read a well written article that explains why the author is so against the Obama administration. Is the author full of hate? I don't believe so. I believe, and he stated, that he is against everything they have and are trying to do and is exasperated. Forcefully written, not hate filled. Ok, Shamturd, you can now call me a racist. To which I say stuff it.

USABorn, Loved your posts. Although spike, I had to re-read them because no where did I see any hatred spewed. Truth is truth no matter how much it hurts, Obama has torn this nation apart by pitting group against group, color against color. That is not a President, that is a radical with an agenda to control. Mychal S. Massie is a great American. Doesn't matter what color you are all America could learn a lot from men like him.

"Is this not the PERFECT letter to follow the one submitted by Mr. Reeder? LoL Great letter Mr. Mills, I whole heartily agree."

I guess if you are of the simpleton breed then it is the prefect letter for you and if you are nothing but a left wing hater.

USA - that much hate is consuming. You are so consumed that you wrote an entire rant before 7 A.M.. There are many politicians I have disliked. I feel most are liars, at every level of the political spectrum. Obama's term will be up soon. Which paragon of virtue do you see in the current playing field?
