I prefer the definition I used, Kahunga, but thanks and regards.
What a novel idea -- using the U-B letters to the editor comments section to pass private messages rather than such routine and boring means of communication as telephones, texts, private e-mails,etc. You may have just started something. Namvet60: salutes for your honorable service (meant to pass this along on the 11th) and -- if that service was as a Marine then happy birthday anf Semper Fi as well (238 years old on this past November 10th). (Celebrated the event with three old Marine buddies last week in Peoria.)
You are being generous, PearlY .... my initial thought after New's utterly silly and rude comment was how nice it would be if he or she returned from whence he or she came. I'm happy you continue posting your common sense input here along with Namvet and Igor.
Absolutely spot on, Igor (as was the letter referenced). I've sent in a letter on this issue citing the commentary of Thomas Sowell as well, who points out that the House representatives are there to fund or withdraw funding and are entirely within constitutional rights to do exactly what they're now doing. It's OBAMA and his administration who is causing the problems now associated with the "shutdown" ... in a very mean-spirited tactic by even closing privately-run parks and those like the Iwo Jima memorial that require no government employees to be available to the public and especially veterans who visit. I think this obvious plan by the administration to try to throw blame at the House of Representatives will backfire.
Reminds me of the absurd, inane comment by Harry Reid that "coal is making us sick." VinoTonto should read his/her own commentary to understand the true meaning of delusional. Keep up the good comments, NamVet60. You're right in the x-ring (bull's eye for non-shooters).
Murray's been spotted, NamVet. Saw her with Reid, Schumer and Durban shuffle up to a podium recently in D.C. They looked like (and are) the four stooges. Keep up the fight! Actually, though, I suspect not too many read these online missives other than the usual contributors .... including the four stooges' fans and we know who those are.
I agree, Igor. The letter was spot on. Fortunately for Obama, it appears that his backside may be saved by none other than Putin ... who apparently is suggesting Assad rids Syria of its chemical (and bio?) WMD to avert war. Saved Kerry's bacon as well.
That's actually a photo of rapper Jayceon Terrell Taylor, not Trayvon Martin. (Of course that doesn't mean Martin wasn't acting like a thug when he attacked Zimmerman, violently bashing the back of his head on concrete and leading to Zimmerman using lethal force to stop the attack.)
Besides, I started that paragraph with "what's next?"
I wouldn't call that a strawman argument, FO5. No, there are not yet proposals to enact laws against insulting Islam as there are now in Europe ... but don't you think that's where this is heading? Once someone calls out "hate speech" or "incitement to violence" you can bet that may well be contemplated. It would not suprise me in the least. First Amendment or not.
