The Romney-Ryan campaign bus stopped in Norwalk this afternoon as part of an effort to encourage early voting. Enjoy these pictures of the event.
The media covered for the Kennedys in those days. For one, the philandering was known, just not reported.
Many records regarding the Kennedys were sealed for 50 yrs. and are just now coming out:
Heroes? There are people living and dead I respect and admire, but no "heroes."
See the word: Iconoclast.
IMO, the 'best' POTUS was the first - Gen. Washington. The most incompetent – the current occupant.
Heck, I’d even vote for Mr. Carter over this jamoke.
@ Contango: " Iconoclast" You ? :)
I had a prof in college use that term in regards to me.
At SPH, a priest called me a heretic.
I wore/wear both with pride.
I learned long ago that the "answer" is usually at least three questions deep.
More often than not, a person's stated reason is not the 'real' reason.
Most often we decide from emotion and then rationalize our decision.
One of the most recent fields in the study of economics is Behavioral Economics. IMO, it's fascinating.
@ Contango: " Behavioral Economics" Long time fan of the kinda Professor of that Paul Farrell from 'Market Watch'. Ever read him?
The surprising thing is that 'the trend is your friend' in the market.Yet, the 'trend' is allmost always ignored in 'behavior' is it not? So I do enjoy reading about it ( when it doesn't scare the dung out me)
One trend, that I wish our military planners could grasp; Is that large standing armys like W.W. 2 made famous are long over. The hit and run army, send the 'lone wolf' to explode himself or the plane or the ... then use the 'cheap stuFF" to take out the billion dollar USS Cole and so on seem the wave of the future. Considering Vietnam,Somalia,Afganastan,Iraq,etc. One would think the Pentagon would get it.Yet....
The " answer" is only 3 questions deep? Thought it might have been more. Do not disagree with your rationial though
See Cliff, Winnie can't say anything positive about anything. Always the gloom and doom. He must be a sad and lonley person. Maybe he has had a bad life and thats why he hates everything.
See "Nineteen Eighty-Four."
Your continued brainwashing from MSNBC, the Comedy Channel and other Ruling Class media outlets has allowed you to only understand a facsimile of the following Party slogans:
"WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH"
You love Big Brother and you ignorantly believe that Big Brother loves you.
@ 44846GWP : I got an idea. Let's wear out "Contango's" computer.Here's how we do it. Just keep writing how cool the Kennedy's were and how much we love them.About the 456,768 th. rebuttal his computer will wear out. :)
p.s. Trust your enjoying this glorious day
At least my sound card works. :)
The Kennedys? Opinions 'obviously' vary.
there 44846.... did CliFf kiss your butt enough to forget the fact that he called you a "racist"??????you know he goes off on tangents telling us all his personal moments of inspiration.... which by the way I hope and I am sure the HE hopes someone is writing down so when they come to make the movie and book about his life, someone will have the facts.... can you say "EGO MANIAC"????? There is a big difference between what he aspires to be and what he is... so if you watch closely he will come in here , just as he just did, and call you a "racist" and then go along and kiss your butt so much that you disregard the fact that he just insulted you..... then to back up his intent of not wanting you to see that you were insulted, he throws out quotes from actually good men, and what they said and what they did..which I guess is supposed to steer you away from the fact that although these highly held people would never insult you the way he just did, HE JUST DID!!!! Sorry CliFf... but you can live by your motto to "Butter their biscuits with BullS##t.." but I am on to you and who you really are....I guess No one on Facebook agreed with you CliFf, you know, how you thought that everyone should use their real names to post... and on this site you felt it was your duty to name every poster, just because you (ego maniac) wanted everyone to know where the great words of wisdom were coming from... BUT it looks like very few were willing to write under their own identities....does that mean that you were WRONG????????HUH imagine that.... Some people might fall for your BS ClifF but I am on to you... it is NOT Noble to call someone a racist then come in and say that you aspire to be like Morgan Freeman.... reality check ClifF you are NOT like him,,, he would NOT HAVE CALLED 44846 a racist!!!!and then would not have kissed their butt until they call down enough to believe that somehow THEY must have misunderstood you!!!!
wow....let me see if I get the correct picture here cLifF.. you are at Cedar Point... I am assuming it is summer time.. I am also assuming that school is NOT in session at this time... Now imagine this family , in line o go one a ride, and get on and off as quickly as possible , so they can run to get in line for the next ride, of refreshment, because at Cadar Point, time is money, you pay for your admittance and have to leave when the park closes. Now imagine that this family went to Target, K-Mart, Wal-Mart etc to get summer clothes...I am sure you have seen the racks of clothes there, and the endless styles and prints on tee shirts, so this mother picks a MLK shirt for whatever reason, and she randomly wears it to the Park that day...she is in line, minding her own business and full of glee and excitement about advancing through the line, then some self important, ego maniac, turns to her and gives her a unprovoked history lesson??????????? wow... you are sooooo stuck on your opinion of yourself aren't you... If the child would have had a picture of the American flag on it. which has been a popular tee shirt for summer, would you have felt the need to explain to the about Betsy Ross??? or the original design of the flag?? ort what the stars and stripes and colors mean on the flag????Maybe your poor kids are trapped into hearing you pontificate your assumed wisdom on other people, and they can not get away from you, but to tell your crap to visitors to an amusement park??????I hope you can hear them laughing at you as they got away from you and calling you a "weirdo" all the way home, and I think that your interaction with them was told to their friends at home, and everyone had a good laugh at your expense!!!You really are a mental case... and an ego maniac...when Cat gets released, maybe she can tutor you about all that she learned during lock up...and maybe you can keep yourself "free " out on the streets... but if these kids and their Mom has any say about it, you might be locked away for a very long time......Now .. I am wearing a shirt with the word and symbol of "Gulf" oil on it.... could you enlighten us all on all that you know about them...????? Dolt
@ Mr. Family & 44846GWP : Oh goody,your not racists---in your minds--- for pointing out the people in the "Romney-Ryan" bus were white. Personally,I think your full of dung, if you think for even one delusional second that your not racist's for saying that--if it really bothers you.
Here's how I intepret that comment: Black people aren't smart enough to vote republician. Or perhaps,you meant black people don't have enough money to be republican or maybe you mean white people hate black people so bad they couldn't possibly vote for a black man to be our president
Maybe you maybe your hiding your arrogance in this remark to mean black people don't think enough to vote for someone who is not black,so why bother to seek their votes? (Hence,the racist crowd would not even consider inviting blacks,correct?)
Or perhaps, 44846 GWP just meant his comment as a joke. However,racist jokes no matter if they uttered by a white,black red,yellow or brown person are not funny.They are simply racist and deserve to be addressed as such.
P.S. 44846 GWP I do not believe you are a racist. Rather,I think you made a mistake in an eFFort to be funny. Sadly,I for one did not find it so
OH ClIfFy... you forgot the other option, the only one you left out, and I am not too sure that you didn't do it on purposeThe other obvious option is that the reason that you do not see different races and cultures, and sexually grouped people at the Republican meetings, is because THEY have a racist and elitist attitude and platform.. that excludes different cultures and life choices, and cultures, thus making the Republican platform a racist platform.>>"Good old Day's" when women stayed home, the scales for employment and home ownership, and even where some people can even rent or purchase a home because of all of the backwards , discriminating ideals that so many of the "good old boy" network used to assure every "Stepford" shaped white conservative, sat at the top of the mountain, enjoying the luxuries provided by the "Drones" of the lower class... Sadly I lived through those discriminatory times, I know that I have outgrown , and been informed about what freedom really means, and it is NOT in going backwards to the discriminatory state that the Republican platform wants to adhere to... but in advancing and not going back again to the injustice that was in America's pastSo you see ClIff..it is NOT me , and it is NOT 44846, that are the racist for pointing out the absence of a display of differences that exists in the Republican party and Gatherings... It is The principles and beliefs of the Republican party itself, that cling to racism, and displays it proudly....we are just the messengers pointing out the obvious, YOU would likely see that if you could pull yourself away from your Mirror, and the sound of your own voice once in awhile.... I am giving my own interpretation of your comment.. I am not sure if or what 44846 thinks or feels, but from what he has said in the past, I do not get the idea that he is racist... you on the other hand?????
One more think Mr cAnNon... remember you told me you did NOT read my poorly written and senseless blogs..?????? it is obvious that you are a "fibber" but I am begging you PLEASE DO NOT EVEN READ MY BLOGS..... they are meant for normal, thinking people..People who have open minds and who are actually interested in make a point, and giving an opinion, and most of all... they are meant for people who also are looking for statements, opinions, and ideas for EVERYONE"S betterment and advancement... NOT for people who only talk about "ME>>>ME>>>ME>>>I>>>I>>>I>>> MY LIFE< WHAT ABOUT ME<>>>PLEASE KNOW WHERE I HAVE TRAVELED>>PLEASE LET ME SHARE FOR YOU FUN QUOTES THAT I HAVE FOUND>>>PLEASE LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT WHERE I HAVE WORKED AND FOR WHOM< AND WHERE I WENT TO SCHOOL..etc YOU get the idea...I would much rather have you enjoying yourself , by looking into a mirror, listening to a recording of YOU playing in your ears.... instead of trying to relate to everyday people like me.... thank you!!!! and one last time... NO I will not accept you as a friend on Facebook....
CliFf says to 44846...."Fearing you to be a RACIST"..................then in a later posting says the "he "didn't think for a minute that you were a racist"????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Hypocrite?????? or Liar?????
80 buks a day some poeple dont make that in 3 days git out let new kids take over u r greedy
LOL.. I hate politics more than I hate stepping in dog doo
all this fuss over a bus???? a bus with a candidates name on the side??? and for this we get 34 pictures, of NO CANDIDATE?????? I don't get it... explain the difference of importance between a bus, that is burning gas, with only a candidates name on it.. and a campaign sign in someones yard with a candidates picture on it???? to me, the campaign poster is better, it is NOT wasting gas, and not causing
traffic tie ups....I am hoping that we will see a 32 picture layout of local campaign posters too..... that would be very exciting !!!
Yes, the fat cat in pic 2 does show the GOP side. Playin' pocket pool with one hand and pointing with the other, tellin' ya how it's gonna be.
PS. The rest of the people look like they're sitting in church listening to a sermon. :)
In a rightful comparison, all you have to do is pull up to your local welfare line and see the majority of Obama supporters.
Best you can do? ;)
Fortunately, I saw GARY JOHNSON - a true conservative, not an Obomney clone. If you're happy with the status quo, then keeping voting for the power elite's duopoly candidates. If you're tired of falling behind, VOTE LIBERTARIAN.
Hey cliFF again don't forget how Nelson RockafeLLer died...doing tha wild thang with Megan Marshack. Wow! they are aLL dirty. Forgot Eisenhour & his Captain secretary tOO!! DNA proved Marion Harding fathered a child outside of maRRaige.gEEz..soRRy for going tOO long. aHH. sEE ya bud.
