NateGrey: Brick-House: Don't worry Mr. President, a little thing like dying won't stop her from voting for you.

[www.neoabolition.com image 300x300]

I can tell you are a Republican by your terrible photoshop skills.


What's up with that?

I imagine these people trying to make an image in Photoshop, getting confused by all the clickable word men-yoos, shouting at it that it's trying to prevent their freedom of speech, then using the eraser to manually trim edges out of a poorly chosen image, and finally cranking up the brightness so really show off those horribly trimmed edges and default colors.

Every so often, they accidentally click on the Bridge link and start screaming "SOCIALIZM!1!" when they see that CS apps work together.

I guess it's a lot like the state of their lives - a confused, ham-handed, and ugly mess of ignorant frustration. And it really comes through in their work.

"Wroth"???


wroth /rôTH/
Adjective: Angry.

First thing to appear when I googled "wroth". See how easy that was?

Also, I didn't know pigs laid eggs.

The original pseudo-Greek from which the Obamavangelion According to Joe was translated lacked punctuation, so the translator might have missed an implied comma.

A solitary grit is a delicacy, multiple grits is an abomination of taste.

Think Cream of Wheat but coarser.

Grits can only be salvaged with about a 50/50 cheese/grit ratio...

Bah, I can tell you from firsthand experience growing up in the South the hate for grits comes from northerners who have no idea how to eat them, or unluck into a bowl full of instant grits which ought to be classified in and of themselves as cruel and unusual punishment.

Nobody gets taken seriously when they complain about oatmeal having bad consistency and taste, but complain about grits' consistency and taste and your word suddenly becomes gospel on high. In either case, the complainer is being dumb and eating it wrong.

When you eat grits, butter, pepper and salt the crap out of them. No, I'm not talking a dainty pat of butter that sits on the top, melts and makes a little puddle as if someone hocked a monster loogie. If you have crispy bacon, crumble it into the grits and mix. If you're so inclined, put some tabasco in there also. Hell, my great aunt who used to cook grits all the time would put a spoonful of lard in hers instead of buttering them.

My wife, as you do, goes the savory route with grits by adding cheese. I prefer the sweet route by adding copious amounts of honey and milk. But I think we can all agree that grits by themselves would be a bland affair.

Why felons? I can get the other two, but the current laws against felons voting just baffles me. They won't be voting until they've served their time, so why prevent them from voting once they're out?

Anyway, you're being deliberately obtuse. Every time there's a purge of the voter rolls, it turns out that a farkton of legitimate voters got purged as well. I, for one, am not a fan of throwing babies out with the bathwater.

LordJiro: Why felons? I can get the other two...


Well, I can understand not wanting the illegals to vote, but if the dead can actually rise from the grave and make to the polling precinct on time, well, that's what I call an engaged and motivated voter. So really it's down to just the illegals, and they haven't been shown to be much of a problem.

I mean, what I'm about to say might sound like I'm trying to quip, but I'm really not.

The bolded part there was your problem: conservatives perceive objectivity as outrageous liberal bias. It's just a fact. Your ability to neutrally analyze the situation was, to them, like putting up a sign that said I'M A LIBERAL BAN ME PLEASE.

Conservatives actually believe Fox News is "fair and balanced." That should tell you everything you need to know about their mindset.

Few things anger conservatives more than reality itself.

Well, I can understand removing them from the voter rolls to keep things tidy.

Illegals, however...They're not gonna show up, especially in any significant number, just to vote, and risk being discovered and deported. It's the same problem with any voter fraud: Far too high risk, way too little reward.

Personally, I think we should be spending this time and effort on corruption in the vote-counting process. Stalin was right when he said "It's not the people who vote that count. It's the people who count the votes.", and that is EXACTLY why we should be watching the vote counters (human or machine) a lot more than we are now, with VERY harsh punishments for cheating.

My Grandmother used to use the left-over grits the next day (that had congealed) by frying them kind of like pancakes. A little maple syrup and you were in heaven. I'm not sure what kind of Grandma magic she had but I haven't be able to replicate it.

Thank y'all for the low down on grits. I was kind of on the fence but now that I know there's frying involved and cheese I'm game to try some. For some reason this thread is reminding me of Laurie Anderson's 'United States Live' album now.

By some mysterious quirk of fate, preventing felons from voting came about shortly after the Civil War.

A bit of history from wiki:

Upon the passage of the Fifteenth Amendment, giving non-whites the right to vote, Southern states began to use seemingly neutral voting qualifications - e.g. literacy tests, property requirements, grandfather clauses, tests for good moral character and criminal disenfranchisement - to deny the vote to black people but also to undesirable (primarily poor) whites.

see also:

...to deny a racial component in felon voting restrictions is to deny history. As this Uggen/Manza chart shows, blanket felon disenfranchisement was basically invented in the first five years after the Civil War, in the South. Joseph "Jazz" Hayden, who is suing the state of New York over its voter laws, claimed in a San Francisco Chronicle column last month that in 1896:

"Mississippi lawmakers ruled that only a narrow range of offenses-bribery, burglary, theft, arson, perjury, forgery, embezzlement, bigamy and 'obtaining money or goods under false pretenses'-made you lose the vote. Why not murder or rape? Because ex-slaves were far more likely to commit petty property crimes than serious offenses. [...] One delegate to the Virginia convention of 1906, which established rules similar to Mississippi's, went on record at the time as saying: 'This plan will eliminate the darkey as a political factor in this state in less than five years.'"

Strolpol: bdub77: But seriously if you want to go out on a high note, meeting the president then dying seems like a pretty decent way to go instead of sitting in a nursing home waiting to die.

I can't really think of a much better note to go out for someone that started their own restaurant than to have the most powerful man in the history of the planet eat at your place.

/in b4 Obama worship, that title's true of every American president since at least Truman


Being able to enjoy the exposure and profits?

Clinton visited a restaurant where my aunt has been a long term employee (dish on menu and all). Course she broke her ankle a week prior and missed out.

The stories she heard about the Secret Service locking down their tiny kitchen were pretty amusing though.

Aww.. grandma magic. Now I have a sad.

Can't replicate my grandma's chicken soup. My mom and brother and I and various family help can come close to her pierogis but after damn near three decades since my mom took over we still bat about a 90% average on unbroken ones. Maybe 95 in the beginning hours before we get tired.

Grandma got 100% every. Damn. Time.
